NB100 - clicking on disc

I have a 11R NB100 which means its netbook remix running linux that comes with it.

Disc one fact can simple click from all few seconds at every 30 to 90 seconds (but no flashing light) - only noticeable when the drive is idle - looks the player trying to park managers or such nonsense.

Very annoying as his strong enough and seems to have quite the most hottest, it gets!

By looking at the disk smart info looks the charge cycle the number increases by 1.

193 Load_Cycle_Count 0 x 0032 098 098 000 Old_age always - 27398

I found a fair bit of inconclusive things on google, but seems to relate to aggressive power management. I found doing the following in a terminal seems to ease the situation to some extent, but it does not cure.

sudo hdparm-B254-S240/dev/sda

BIOS is V1.10

Has anyone else noticed this on them. I can't imagine this makes the player a lot of good, but this just click annoys the hell out of me.



These clicks are normally causes of a failed HARD drive. In your case I would backup the data on another storage medium.

You can check the disk with Drive Fitness Test:

Try it and post your result.

Good bye

  • Warped disc menu text

    I have a problem with the images in the text and the menu, being distorted and fuzzy scene. I just clicked on 'disc menu' and chose 'marriage in the open air' and seized a main title with a bit of text (standard font) and the text and the images looks terrible in the preview and the text is badly deformed in the finished burned DVD.

    The footage was shot with a Panasonic HDC-SD60 to HA1920 in PAL. I mixed no any other format of images in the project. There is just a still image at the end that I created in PE and I created a title at the beginning of the sequence against a black in the fading in image. The title is just text.

    The sequence itself looks good on the finished DVD, it's just the menu disc sounds terrible, and it's just a standard disc without any menu option real twist. I find adding and adjusting this menu to be friendly, very someuser so I stuck to the police standard and tried of don't not muck about with him too much the text. (On a detour - all my scenes are starting a fade in so all the images in the scene are black.) I'm trying to adjust the green points on the timeline and this changes the images in the menu scenes but also begins scenes here. Is there a way to add a photo to these boxes of scene without it from there?)

    All offered help is very appreciated thanks.


    The workflow I would use would be:

    1. Create a new project in HD to match the Source 100% film
    2. Edit, save along the way
    3. When you are finished, a Save_As, changing the name a little, like to add 'final_HD '.
    4. Do all the BD of creation in this project, with the HD Menu Sets, etc.
    5. Burn to BD for this project Save_As
    6. Return to the initial project (before the Save_As), open it and export/Share to DV - AVI w / 16-bit 48 kHz PCM/WAV Audio
    7. Create a new project in DV (NTSC or PAL), format panoramic 16:9 w / 16-bit Audio, 48 kHz
    8. Import DV - AVI
    9. Modify, if necessary, but probably not
    10. Do all DVD authoring in this project, with large Menu Sets screen, etc.
    11. Burn to DVD, using blank media quality only, like Verbatim, Taiyo Yuden or Falcon Pro

  • Cannot connect to Windows 7 PC via Wi Fi

    I have a Stor.E TV + 2 TB I've tried everything but can't connect to PC Windows 7.
    However, it will connect to a Windows XP OK computer.
    Someone at - it solution

    I found that connecting to Windows 7 with WiFi or other is a business blindly. The reason is not clear, but probably because the Toshiba is not properly designed to be discovered by Windows 7. Even computers Windows XP need some software utilities installed to be discovered by Win 7. Often the Toshiba appears at the bottom of the page of the network as a disc that is present but cannot be discovered. Sometimes it will appear under network locations if you pass the Toshiba and the new to reset the IP address. In addition to the usual file sharing settings, the drive must be mapped under 'computer '. Very often when the player does not appear under the 'Network' locations, double click the disc 'Computer' open records even if it does not appear in the sites 'network '. Don't ask me why. I worked around this and other issues such as the inability to copy large files, without interface specified Samba, etc, etc.. I installed the updated software, but other issues have slipped now that I've never had before like files FLAC freeze the player and does not properly (noise spikes). In truth, unfortunately, is a * finish without any support, and should not be on the market. I can't even sell it because it wouldn't be ethical it land on a poor unsuspecting, but hours of frustration to work around these problems, just to be able to use it, is counterproductive. I'll be more careful next time in choosing a provider.

  • My C50D-A-138 Satellite play DVD

    My laptop Toshiba C50D-A-138 play DVD. I have my laptop in May and for the first days I would let me play DVDs but since then it will not play them, it's just noise wurring as if he's trying to open but it used. I tried to download VLC and various media players to see if it would help, but it's not.

    My laptop will play CD and computer games when I put the disc in but when it comes to DVD, they usually open and I don't get a notification to say that there is a disc in. When I enter my PC folder and look at the D drive and it shows the name of the DVD, but when I click it opens in a folder showing a folder of video content and sound (something like that) and if I right click on disc he D when there is a DVD in and click on "open autoplay". , he wurr of for a few seconds then stops and noting happens.

    I hope someone can help.

    You try to play original DVD or just some kind of course copied movies?

    > When I go into my PC folder and look at the D drive and it shows the name of the DVD, but when I click it opens in a folder showing a folder of video content and sound (something like that)

    This means that the ODD (optical disc) can read the disc (DVD) because the content of the DVD is available.
    The question is: why the software is unable to read the game, the contents of the disc.

    There are a few possible reasons for this:

    (1) the disc isn t out to countries in the region that is defined in the parameters of the STRANGE. The settings can be found: (right click on region D drive properties Hardware tab properties button DVD DVD/CD). In my case the DVD region has been set to region 2. In this case, I can play DVD disc released for region 2.
    _Note: _ this settings can be changed only 4 times. Then it will not be possible to switch to another area code.

    (2) the software you are using is unable to read the contents of the disc. But VLC player is one of the best players available on the market (free) and it should be possible to play almost all drives using this software. However, the preinstalled DVD Toshiba playback software should also read the original DVD discs.

    (3) another reason why the STRANGE can not read the disc correctly, is the dirty laser lens. In this case, it will take to clean the lens of the laser using a fluid tip and alcohol of wadding.

    Hai, I just buy my USB Apple SuperDrive - MD564ZM/A and I discovered that I can't burn my CD at all.

    He did not show the black n yellow logo color to my Mac Book Pro, what should I do?

    I have been using Youtube, Google, but I can't find a solution.

    Hi Brenda,

    Thank you for your participation in the communities of Support from Apple.

    I see you have a new SuperDrive USB, but you can't burn CDs at all. What applications are you using to burn your discs?

    If you burn the data files on a CD, you can use the method in OS X El Capitan: If you have problems burning discs:

    If your Mac has a built-in optical drive, or if you connect an external DVD drive (for example, a SuperDrive Apple USB drive), you can burn files on CD and DVD to share your files with friends, move files between computers or create backup files. The disc burn you on your Mac is usable also on Windows and other types of computers.

    1. Insert a blank disc into the optical drive.

      If you see a dialog box, click on the context menu, then choose open Finder. Select "Perform this action by default" If you want to open the Finder, whenever you insert a blank disc.

      The disc appears on your desktop.

    2. Double-click the disc to open its window, and then drag the files and folders you want to burn on the window.

      Alias , the files are placed in the window of the disk. The original files are not moved or deleted.

      Note: If you want to burn the same files on multiple disks, using a burn folder.

    3. Organize and rename the files.

      When the disc is burned, the items on the disc have the same names and places they have in the disc window. After the disc is burned, you can not change the items.

    4. Choose file > burn [disc], then follow the instructions.

      The files that the aliases point to are burned on the disc. In addition, if the records that you add to the disc contains aliases, files those aliases point are also engraved on the disc.

    You can also find some suggestions in OS X El Capitan: If you have problems burning discs.

  • Time Machine see a disk that is no longer connected

    I have a MyBook World NAS drive that I use for backups Time Machine.  The unit was called MyBookNAS.  I had trouble with Time Machine, so I deleted the Time Machine backups, deleted the Prefs file, renamed the MyBook-NAS device and change the address MAC of the NAS.

    The problem I have is that time machine preferences show the old disk, and it cannot be removed from the Select Disk option.  I click "Select Disk" click on the old name of device, click "Remove disc", click on "Stop using this drive" and yet.  It also lists my last back up from July, even if I had a recent backup device 'new '.

    It seems to me that the time machine has somewhere preferences that are corrupted.  When I "enter Time Machine" it can't find the backup of July (logical) but does not even backup 'new '.

    Is there another file of parameters of Time Machine that can be removed?  I want to start with Time Machine.  I tried to remove the drive with Time Machine, before the restart, after restart, all combinations.

    Operating system is Yosemite.

    Thank you


    You are aware that Apple strongly recommends against the use of NAS drives for Time Machine backups storage?

    Hi all

    HD failed a friend into her laptop, but after he enslavement to my laptop I was able to recover all of its intellectual property. I've moved all its directory tree original Windows in its own folder on the same drive. This thing any way that he place the disk would not mingle with old data.

    Since he has already replaced the drive into his laptop, I decided to use the old drive as additional external storage by placing it in a USB connected housing, he would not have to reformat the drive until he was able to cross [on their own] and make sure he got everything.

    When I connect the drive to my laptop I have total rights.

    When he connects to his laptop computer, some files [most] are not accessible; that he doesn't have rights to other accounts that have been created when it was his key motivation.

    I think that since it has USER rights on his laptop [it has a computer programmer who don't give him Admin rights] and it's practically the same configuration, except for the new drive, these files on the old HD are always locked by administrator rights, even if the drive is now only used for additional external storage.

    Question [finally]:

    Is it possible to remove/unlock the Admin rights for accounts that were created when the disk is the disk to boot Windows?

    Kind regards!

    To give the control is a two-step process. Take ownership and then to give permissions.

    Owner of a file allows the owner to change permissions even if they do not have the authorization to do so. It's the only thing that made property. The person who creates an object owns the object. For admins, the objects that are created are the property of administrators, not the individual.

    Administrator more common and more powerful special power is to take ownership of objects, that they were not allowed to.

    You need start exploring as administrator to Start - All Programs - Accessories - made Windows Explorer right click and choose run as administrator.

    He must right click files/disc interested - Properties - Security - Advanced button - property tab - Edit - tick Replace owner on Sub containers and objects button - select a user (should be group of administrators or yourself) - then Ok your way out.

    Now, you give permission to access the files.

    Right-click new - folder Properties - Security - Advanced - tab permissions - Edit button - select the account - check the two checkboxes - button - button Advanced - Search now button Add - select yourself or your want to have ticks - Ok button - group full control access in the list. OK your way out.
