I would make sure that all filenames do not exceed 116 characters in length, and they contain only standard characters (A-Z and 0-9, not symbols like !@#$%^*))/|).

    Try running a check disk.

    Open up command prompt. (Start --> Run... --> then type "cmd" (without the quotes)
    Then type the following: "CHKDSK Z: /X /F" (without the quotes, replace "Z" with the drive letter of your SD card.

Dvd drive is full of files but only shows a empty file folder, how do you open the file


The folder might contain a lot of what are called "hidden files"

To view hidden files, press the "Alt" key in your explorer window and go to "View -> Folder Options"
Then navigate to the View tab and under advanced settings select "Show hidden files and folders"

Or:

Go to the Control Panel -> Appearance and Personalization -> Folder options -> View -> Advanced settings -> Show hidden files and folders

That should fix it

Removing 'Access denied' error from folders and files using Unlocker Assistant


Copying files from one destination to another is a practice that goes on a lot among PC users. Sometimes huge sums of data are moved from one hard disk to another. Now there is this error that happens a lot where, when the mouse icon is placed on a folder, you see 'folder is empty' even though you know that the folder you copied is not empty. When you try to open it, you are told that access denied. Most of the files too may not be accessible and will also give access denied error. This is a frustration that can make one think that his/her files are lost. Well, there are ways out and even though it might take time, it's worth it. The following, is a solution to this problem using the software, Unlocker Assistant;

1. First, you would have to obtain the software on the internet. It's free and you can easily search and download it in a few seconds.

2. Install it by following the instructions and you are ready to go. Now, if you are using Super Copier, Unlocker Assistant may fail to start so if you do, then uninstall the Super Copier for the time you would use the Unlocker Assistant. You can install it back when done.

3. Now create a folder on another drive with enough space, different from the one with file and folder errors.

4. Now right-click a folder (one with access denied and empty folder error) and select 'Unlocker'. Among the list of actions, you select move and select the folder you created as destination. If the moving goes through, a success message will show and state that object was moved which means everything in that folder is fully unlocked and is accessible.

5. If the moving does not go through, it will ask you if you would like to move the object the next time you restart. If so, select no. Now refresh and check the folder again and you will see that this time, it is not empty and it is accessible. Now open the folder and repeat the same thing with all other sub-folders. Now this might take time depending on the number of folders you have so you might want to ignore folders that you do not need.

6. Now after you have unlocked the folders, you come to the files in the folders. Select all the files in the folder and right-click and select move. Create the same folder name at the destination for easy recognition. All the files will moved. If the file sizes are very big, you might want to take a little at a time but if they are all small, then you may select all.

7. Now every file that is moved by Unlocker is now accessible. Pictures, movies and all other file types can now be accessed. After everything, you may then move the files back to the disk that had the file and folder errors.

That is all. You are done. Hope this was helpful.

Copy & Paste - Drag & Drop of Files and Folders


Do you find it difficult to drag and drop? Copy files from one folder to another OR move a file from one folder to another? Try this:
  • Open the Windows Explorer. How? Hold down the [WIN] key together with E key. Make this window size in between MAXIMUM and MINIMUM.
  • Open one more window and size it medium as before.
  • Adjust the positions so that you can see both windows side by side
  • Select a drive and folder from one window.
  • Slowly drag it and drop it to an empty space in the other window.
  • If you hold down the [CTRL] key while dragging, you will get a duplicate in the second folder.
  • OR highlight a file from one window , right click, then click on COPY; Now click into the next window, right click on an empty space and click on PASTE
Have a Good Day!

How do i download pics from comp to disk


Hi,
  1. Insert a writeable CD or DVD into your computer's CD or DVD recorder.
  2. In the dialog box that appears, click Burn files to data disc.
  3. In the Burn a Disc dialog box, type a name for this disc, and then click Next.
    It might take several minutes for the disc to be formatted in the default Live File System format. When the formatting is complete, an empty disc folder opens.
  4. Open the folder that contains the files you want to burn, and then drag the files into the empty disc folder.

    cdb4d559-8825-47a1-8175-79020965d91c.pngYou can copy files to the disc folder by dragging them to the disc icon or to an open disc folder As you drag files into the disc folder, they are copied automatically to the disc.

How do you remove fragmentation (defrag) a hard drive without using a defrag tool? Can you simply copy all files to a back up drive, reformat the fragmented drive and restore the files?


when files are written to the hard drive they start from the center outwards...as the platter fills up, the read/write heads find the next empty spot. when a file is deleted (document, photo, mp3, or even a temp file used by the system) the r/w head starts writing a new file in the FIRST empty spot it finds....rather than one continuous stream of data.

Theoretically, copying files from a fragmented drive to a freshly formated drive would move them in an orderly fashion without fragmenting.

On the other hand, if you were to use a clone utility (like norton ghost or acronis) then you would copy everything of the original drive bit by bit in its original position, fragments and all.

interesting question to be sure....I will have to experiment with this.

A folder take too much time to open


Every folder in windows when "thumbnails" view is given saves file named "Thumbs.db" in which small photos are saved which for internal content, and also "desctop.ini" is saved in folder, sometimes some incorrect datas or very big ammount of information is saved in this file, try unhide hidden files and delete those two files manually, it will reset folder wiew and will become it faster. also you can create separate folder and move content in it and then delete old one but be careful dont use ctrl+a to mark all files, because it also copys those mentioned files and result will be same, you will still suffer from waiting folder to open, better to copy by drag and drop.

Some memory card files wont show on samsung U900


you will need to do some fault finding here to narrow down the problem.

First on your computer turn on show hidden files and show systems files. and still confirm that there are no extra files in any of the folders that are not showing up on the phone

then create a new folder and copy a single file to that folder and confirm if the phone sees that folder and the file. If it does, then copy a file that it previously could see into that folder.
If you can't see that file still, copy a non seeing file into the folder it can see.

See what I am getting at? you need to narrow things down. Let me know how the above goes, I will further help once you reply.

Hey


Make sure the image file is in JPG format, or the player won't be able to read it.

For users running Windows XP with Service Pack 1 and above:
With your device connected to your computer, click on My Computer and then click on the icon for your device. If you see a folder labeled DATA, you must copy the photo files you want to view directly into this folder. Folders containing photos cannot be copied to the DATA folder. Photo files must be copied directly to the DATA folder using no other folder.
If you do not see a folder labeled DATA, then copy the photo files you want to view directly to the device. Folders containing photos cannot be copied to the DATA folder.
