iPhoto is closed until I can use it.

When I open iPhoto, it automatically goes to load photos from a memory stick that was deleted then comes up with an error message. If I click on reopen the same thing happens, if I click on OK iPhoto closed its doors. So I can't access anything in iPhoto. I rebooted my computer in safe mode, but the same thing happens. This anomaly occurred after that I tried to download pictures from a memory stick. I downloaded pictures from this key successfully when I used it in my old camera. But it was the first time I tried to download pictures from the stick after using it in my new camera.

My 27 "Apple Max is the OSX Version 10.8.5

Can you tell me what to do?

Thank you

John Dawson

  • External hard drive not detected with the error: "You must format the disk in the J: drive until you can use it."

    Hello

    I have an external hard drive to work perfectly. I'm back from vacation, and it does not appear under "My Computer". It appears under "Devices and printers", however. This is a link to a screencap of Device Manager: http://i.gyazo.com/9e91e1d71ed32c55dba0419e79b499d5.png

    The device in question is that of J:, and it says here that he has 100% free space, that worries me, because he had only 50 GB of free space when I used the latter. After that I open the disk management, I get a pop up message saying: "You must format the disk in the J: drive until you can use it."

    How can I get my hard drive appears again?

    Original title: WD hard drive problem! Desperately need help. Please

    Hi Arman,

    Thanks for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I would say you can remove the drive letter M: using disk management and assign a different drive for the drive letter and check if it helps you to solve the problem and if the drive works very well.

    To change the drive letter in disk management follow the steps below:

    a. open computer by clicking the Start> Control Panel > system and security> Administrative Tools > computer management. If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

    (b) in the left pane, click disk management.

    c. click the drive that you want to change and then click change drive letter and paths.

    d. do one of the following:

    • For letter an if it has not already received, click Add, click the letter you want to use and then click OK.
    • To change a drive letter, click change, click assign the following drive letter, click the letter you want to use, and then click OK.
    • To remove a drive letter, click Remove, and then click Yes to confirm that you want to remove.

    Additional information:

    Change, add, or remove a drive letter

  • my USB won't open it says "you must format the disk hard until you can use it"

    Hello
    I have my brand DANE ELEC 16 GB USB key was the work properly. I took it off wile, he played the song, and since then, I have try to open a dialog box open and said you need to format the hard disk: X before you can use I can't format it because I'll lose my data fields, important documents of songs picters.
    If anyone can help me with it please
    Thank you in advance.

    Because you don't properly stop the disc before removing it, you burned her FAT (File Allocation Table that each player has). Your files are still there, but they can only be read by the 'normal' software... think of a hard drive as a subdivision... formatting a disk (any drive) is like the ranking of all sectors which will be the roads and determine where the accommodation structures (folders) can be placed. When a fat gets grilled, all the rankings and roads disappeared suddenly... but the housing is still there. Recovery software puts the ranking and roads back.

    Is there a software that I used to be called "Rescue" that worked fine on the old disk to FAT32. Costs $60 but it was cheaper than $1000 than for a customer who had sprayed a server hard drive (and replaced their backup before calling me, long story, lesson learned client and I learned the value of disaster planning... but I digress), I was at another time.

    Good luck!! Let us know what you find / use / work... so that you can save we / you... because it will never happen.

  • You must format the drive until you can use it!

    Hello.. can someone help me please...

    I have Windows vista... I have an extra external HARD drive... Every time there is an upgrade of vista I can't access my external hard drive, I click Open, he said: "you need to format the disk in E: drive before you can use it, you want to format?"

    Ok.. It's something to do with permissions I have solved this a coupke times before fixing it then setting a restore point, unfortunately my restore point will not do after an another upgrade of vista/update...

    How to reset the permissions so that I can access all my music, images, and documents stored on my external hard drive and... What can I do to stop future updates change my settings and stop my access to my external hard drive?

    Thanks in advance, ian.

    Gringy,
    Here is an article with detailed steps to take to solve the problem of permissions permanently.  http://support.Microsoft.com/kb/949608 this involves advanced enough procedures so if this isn't something you feel comfortable with that you get assistance to do this process.

    Change the settings of the REGISTRY can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from starting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the REGISTRY settings configuration can be solved. Changes to these settings are at your own risk.

    Thank you

  • You must format the F: drive until you can use it >: O

    I have a sd card and its worked many times on my windows vista home premium 32-bit. I just recorded some videos on it and connected it to my computer. Now its saying it needs formatting! I have so many pictures and videos on my card sd and need to download the YouTube videos. Can someone help me on this please? Should I use another computer and try downloading my videos? Can I get an adapter and put my card in there? WHAT I WOULD DO! :( :( :( :( :(

    Well, the first thing NOT to do is clearly format the card.  Yes, all your suggestions (try another computer, try an external card reader and so on) are good, and no one has one clear advantage over the other. I would also add that you might want to try to put the card in the camera and see if the camera recognizes it and the files it contains.

  • I need to install the Oracle client until I can use Oracle SQL Developer?

    Hi all

    I used to use the PL/SQL Developer to connect to the Oracle server, and before it can work, I have to install Oracle on my PC client.

    So I wonder to know if I use Oracle SQL Developer, what I have to do the same thing? If not, why?

    Thank you very much.

    Hello Serge,

    you don't need a client. Developer SQL uses JDBC to connect.

    * original title - USB pen problem *.

    Hi samanthaGibbons,

    What is the make and model of your USB Flash drive?

    The USB Flash drive works in any other computer?

    It might be a problem with the drive itself, or it may need to be formatted.

    I suggest you check out the website of the manufacturer for possible troubleshooting or know how to reformat the disk, if necessary.

    I hope this helps!

  • Storage device does not. Computer ask me to format it before that I can use it.__The device worked fine before and has over 200 G of files it contains.

    My seagate expansion drivre has been brilliant so far. Last night I opened the properties and I check the box that says "compress files to save disk space" or something like that. Since I could not open the damn thing. If I try to open a window telling me that I need to fomat the disc in this drive (F) until I can use it. I can't findout how to cancel compression of files and I don't want to format the drive because I think that will delete all my files. I think that the compression of the files can be called "Zipper" and I need to extract, but I can't find any option to do this. Can anyone help? If I didn't leave enough information please ask what you need to know that I will answer as soon as POSSIBLE.

  • The SD card no longer works. "You must format the disk before you can use it"

    I have a dv8000t supplied with XP.  I've upgraded to Vista 32, and after the driver updates and adding the SMCISEnable key in the registry, the SD card reader has worked well.

    Now when I try to use the SD cards, it is said: "you must format the drive until you can use it" as an error message.  I tried the SD cards on other computers, and they work, so I know that is only the HP dv8000t problem. This is perhaps the result of a Windows Service Pack or other update?  I have Vista Service Pack 2.

    Any ideas?  Thank you.

    We use thunderbird on a network of several computers connected to an e-mail account. If someone else uses thunderbird as the sending and receiving of emails point on the other can use thunderbird at the same time until the first person close Thunderbird. How can we solve this problem?

    Do you know if your installation uses the IMAP protocol?

    Your problem may be due to the server; It can be configured to allow only a single connection at a time.

    Different users share a common profile? This would give the symptoms that you describe, since the Thunderbird locks his profile.
