How do I make my goodmans digital tv recorder to actually record? It set up fine, but wont record.


I'd guess that the hard disk is on its way out.

Any computer repair shop will be able to test the disk for a nominal sum, and to replace it if you so wish.

Disk drive disapeared


Check the BIOS to see if the hard disk is detected, if not open the case and re-seat the data cable on the hard drive and also where it connects to the motherboard disk controller.
If it still gives this error message and the BIOS does not detect this hard drive, then the hard drive is probably faulty.

To get the computer operating again, install a new hard drive in your computer and then install Windows on this hard drive plus the computer's device drivers and your programs.

My Z100atapi Zip drive is recognized by Windows 7, but the old disks are not in a recognized file format. I need to get the old data ..


Greetings - According to Iomega your 100 MB ZIP drive media should be fine at being at least readable (the Iomega software does not work with Win 7) natively by Win 7 and Vista. Since the drive is recognized I suspect the problem is actually the discs themselves.

It turns out that the discs were not very good at long term storage and are notorious enough to have a term referring to the problem as the "Zip Burp" where:

  • A) All files on the disk disappear
  • B) Just Compressed Formats such as JPG, ZIP, CAB, ECT Disapear
  • C) "The Disk Needs To Be Reformatted" message is displayed or
  • D) files disappear as you click them


The only way that I know to find out for sure if your discs are good is if you can find someone with an XP machine that will let you temporarily install your Zip drive (including the latest drivers) and see what happens.

Good Luck,

Mikeywaf

Cant download my digital photos to computer


here If your driver cd has been installed and the camera shows up in the pc, and it doesnt complain about anything you should be able to view the images by-

1. goto desktop
2. Open my computer
3. now look around for the cameras storage memory, there should be a new drive there. If you now remove the cameras usb cable. and plug it back, keep the my computer open and watch witch drive disapears and comes back.
4. The one that disapeared and came back, is your cameras memory, open it and open the folders with in it to get to your pictures.
5. now that you have found the picture files, you can copy them to your pc, or print them, or send them to a online picture service to have them mail the pictures for you. This costs ofcourse......

Thanks.

1998 Ford Escort Timing Belt Disapearing?


Sounds like the metal collar that fits between the cam gear & the belt was left out.Good luck,
ChevRev P.S. This should be a round metal collar with a curve towards the cam gear to keep the belt from riding towards the cam gear .Without it the belt will slowly shred as it makes contact with the cam gear.Hope this helps you.

Locked Folders


One week ago my LaCie external disk has been locked during a system reinstallation process in which the hard drive was plugged in.  The message was that I had no permission to access it. I thought I would loose for ever all the files I have been backed up for years. But finally I have got the solution for that. There is a sofware called MacPilot (I used version 3.2.6, $20, 15-day trial) that fixes it. Once instaled, click TOOLS, then "Files&Folders" at left, then "Unlock File or Folder", press "Choose", it opens FINDER and then you click LacCie Disk. When the padlock symbol at the botton of LACie disapears, you can finally change the permissions to "read&Record". That's all, and I hope it helps. 
I recommend that you always unplug external hard drivers during system reinstallation to prevent that.
