  • Unable to access HP Personal Media Drive in Windows 7

    My wife desktop PC has failed.  I need to access the data on the HP Personal Media Drive and it attached via the USB port on my Windows 7 laptop.  However, the drive is not recognized and Windows says that there is a driver error.  However (a) according to HP, there is no Win7 drivers for this drive.  (b) according to Microsoft, the drive is compatible with Windows 7?  How the hell can I access this disk?

  • Need help to replace a physically C drive on several computer disks. I can't LOOSE the data on the secondary drive.

    I got 2 hard drives, a small disc with XP Pro and a big drive for storage and memory intensive programs. The disc is dead - physically (he's grinding wheels), not because of software problems. I managed to boot from the XP disk and copied as much as possible on an external drive to install on a new hard drive. Externally will not take the backup file. After that I restarted depui the XP disc, my secondary drive is no longer recognized. I copy the contents of the C drive on an external drive. Here are my questions:
    1. can I ghost the info on a new hard drive and skip the installation? Reason I have CS3 on drive F, but it components installed on the C drive (where CS2 was before I upgraded). I do not have my Adobe CS3 here records because it allowed multi, and my records are currently out of State with the other licensee.
    2. If I install the new disk, starting from the old drive with XP disc, can I ghost? (I have a tour customized for several readers) When I started the drive C before - he tried to install on my F drive. I have not installed (I can't lose the files on drive F), and now the computer does not recognize the drive. I bought a Seagate drive and they have great software for installation - so I'd like to ghost it. The XP disk reduced to nothing the new drive hard as he did the F drive?
    and finally, question 3. When the new drive, I get up and running, can I sign out the F drive, plug it back and Windows will see it? CS3 & Quark will still work if I have to do a fresh install?

    Hi jdohugh,

    Thanks for posting. If I read your post correctly your hard drive with your operating system on it died, so you lost your operating system and do not have to reinstall but you try to get down the important data before the reinstall.

    1 Q: can I ghost the info on a new hard drive and skip the installation? Reason I have CS3 on drive F, but it components installed on the C drive (where CS2 was before I upgraded). I do not have my Adobe CS3 here records because it allowed multi, and my records are currently out of State with the other licensee.

    A. Si your drive with your operating system does not work, I do not think you can ghost it and reinstall as the image would not work. With Adobe CS3 disks, you will need to contact Adobe and get them to perform the installation of additional supports. Simply copy the files likely will not work to reisntall the application.

    2. Q. If I install the new disk, starting from the old drive with XP disc, can I ghost? (I have a tour customized for several readers) When I started the drive C before - he tried to install on my F drive. I have not installed (I can't lose the files on drive F), and now the computer does not recognize the drive. I bought a Seagate drive and they have great software for installation - so I'd like to ghost it. The XP disk reduced to nothing the new drive hard as he did the F drive?

    A: as I said in question 1 if your operating system drive does not an image would most likely fail or be corrupt. If read correctly the other part of the question you the system tried to start installation on your f:\ that matches your drive program and now you cannot access the files on it? With the last part of this question, you will need to contact Seagate to see what makes their software, I'm not sure what you're trying to accomplish by using.

    3. Q. When the new drive, I get up and running, can I sign out the F drive, plug it back and Windows will see it? CS3 & Quark will still work if I have to do a fresh install?
         
    A. Si you reconnect an extra drive to XP, the operating system should see it regardless of what it was connected to previously. With regard to your programs, if it is a new operating system you load then Yes, you will need to reinstall these applications on the operating system, and they should work with no problems provided that the drive is working correctly.

    I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any additional questions.

  • Unable to access drive C - access denied

    I tried to be smart and went to the wrong place! After giving my password wireless to a member of the family, I decided to play with the shared security. I click with the right button on the C drive and click left on property and left click on Shared for verification of the United Nations all public access to my C drive.  Then BOOM that many things began to happen. The essential being is not able to access my C drive, I got access denied. I tried everything Pegassus mentioned in this forum without success! It was so easy and logical to me to think that I was doing the right thing than to try to protect my own C drive, I can't believe that the only solution is to restore the home edition of windows 7 to fix that...

    You must install Vista from a recovery disk or a Vista dvd installation.  If you don't have a recovery disc, you can order the laptop manufacturer or a third party provider as Recovery - Disks.com.  If you have a Vista dvd installation, you must start the computer with it.

  • Failed to create the paging to a secondary drive file

    I recently installed a secondary hard drive in my laptop, and I'm trying to move the swap file to this drive to increase performance. However, for some reason, the system is unable to create a swap file on the secondary drive (d). To be precise, this is what happens:

    1. I go to system properties > advanced > settings > advanced > change and together an exchange of files on drive d (I tried to do "managed system" or setting a specific size, but that makes no difference). For now, I keep the pagefile on the C: drive as well.
    2. I click on save and see 'total size pagefile for all readers' increased appropriately.
    3. I navigate to D:\ and see that pagefile.sys has been created successfully.
    4. I restart my computer.
    5. D:\pagefile.sys has disappeared; "all readers of the total paging file size" shows the old value (i.e. not counting the pagefile on D :).)
    I did some research and have already tried the following:
    1. Running 'sc config afs start = disabled' - there is no such service on my computer
    2. Setting the size of page on D: "management system" file - it is always not get created
    3. Check the permissions on the d: - both COMPNAME\system and COMPNAME\Administrators have full control access. drive is owned by system
    4. Also tried disabling the pagefile on the c: completely - what makes Windows generates an error message "Windows created a temporary swap file on your computer because of a problem that occurred with your paging file configuration when you started your computer". The system creates a temporary pagefile on C:, but none on D:.
    5. Finally, I ran sfc/scannow, and he finds no errors.
    What Miss me? What is the problem with my D: drive? It is formatted in NTFS and has 30 GB of free space.
    Tips, links, wild guesses is very much appreciated.
    P.S. The system chart: HP 6930p (Core 2 Duo 9400), 3 GB RAM, Windows 7 Enterprise 32 bit.

    1. it is not dedicated in the pagefile, but as much as I know this isn't a requirement, right?

    2. I expected to be able to create a pagination on the D: drive, even if it has other files.

    3. I tried it both ways - with a nominal pagefile on C: (different sizes) and without it. In all cases the paging on D: file not be enabled.

    1. a dedicated partition is preferable. Swap files mixed with other files, unless the minimum fixed = maximum, increase in the rate of fragmentation of other files and free disk space.

    2. what pagefile parameter you try to apply?

    3. advice on swap files made with Windows XP in mind. Increase in RAM memory and the pagefile is used may have changed. Of course, there are different views on the defragmentation from Microsoft programmers today. Personally as a user I have reservations about evolution.

    Hope this helps, Gerry Cornell

  • Can I save the Organizer, move my photos and always access to post-secondary studies?

    I backed up my catalog to an external hard drive last night and there were about 20 disconnected files.  I wasn't able to locate so I allowed the back upward to continue without them.  Do you know what are the consequences for that?

    In addition, many of my pictures are on my C drive, and several are on the external hard drive.  My catalogue included photos of these two places. When I move the rest of my photos from the C drive of my computer to the external hard drive, the catalogue will always be able to access or will I have to backup everything again?

    My goal is to free up space on my computer, so PSE will stop freezing.  I am interested in fact at this moment can enter all my photos in the organizer and labeled.  I'll change them later I have started creating digital scrapbook pages.

    Can someone tell me if how I go about this is correct?

    Thank you

    Thanks Ken.  I have supported all my external hard drive, but now I think I rather just move everything there and reminds me of my photos of the HD post to free up space on my C drive.  Is this possible?

  • The share of customers unable to access the network - error 0x80004005

    Hello, my network has the following configuration.

    • Server - Windows 2003 Server - acting as DNS, domain controller, file server
    • Clients - Windows XP Pro, Windows Vista business, Windows 7 Pro
    • DHCP server is on my router. All customers running on DHCP

    For some unknown reason, some network sharing has stopped working since yesterday. When users connect by Ctrl + Alt + Delete by using their network accounts, they are unable to access their computers in office, services, Skype etc., gives an error of 0 x 80004005 (unspecified error). They are not forced to use roaming profiles.

    I opened Windows Explorer and typed \\server\share. The same error is invited. However, if I try to access the share of \\ip\share, it can show me the files without a problem.

    I took to refine measures issues

    • Connectivity - outcome of the network: Internet access / access server by IP. So no connectivity problem
    • Ping-ing the name of the computer server - result: OK. So not a DNS problem
    • Check firewalls – result: Clients running Windows Firewall correctly. Network type, the value of 'work '.

    Other facts that may be useful

    • No third-party firewall. All running on Windows Firewall.
    • No settings changed before problem appeared
    • Problem appeared after a reboot the server

    (P.s. Skype prompted "Cannot find necessary files and cannot start". "I think it's the same problem with network shares, because the application data is also stored in network shares.)

    I am running XP Service Pack 3 and were unable to access the Windows Update page for a few weeks now. I get an error message saying that "Internet Explorer can not locate the page". I tried several routes to access the update page, but they all fail. Analysis of virus and malware picked up nothing. I am running Internet Explorer Ver 8.

    It turns out that the problem was software malicious. After the last post, more I tried to do at least I could do: Internet Explporer wouldn't start again, I could not copy files from one drive to the other and my backup software has been disabled. I have reinstalled Windows to solve problems. Scans of my files from backup using Quick Heal has revealed the presence of Trojan.Gen, who may have let in some other bad guys. I can now access the update site.
