Question about External Drives

Forwarded problem Benimur: Came across this in the posted problems - obviously this user is looking for help from you. I know this person didn't give much detail, but perhaps they will share it with you, or maybe you are already working with them. They apparently don't know how to get to the "Ask Me" feature... Thank you. http://www.fixya.com/support/t1051202-benimur

    Thank you, Benimur. I have to tell you that I appreciate your kind words in this matter, and the professionalism you consistently display in both the forum and the lounge. You may recall my participation in addressing and, to the extent possible, rectifying the situation involving the extreme vulgarity of a former expert, in what could only be termed a rampage at the end of June. That particular matter represented an emergency situation, in my opinion, due to the potential for catastrohic damage to FixYa and all of us as true experts. I felt strongly that immediate action was required to diffuse the explosive nature of the situation, and particularly to focus on the users who had obviously been impacted in a dramatically negative fashion.



    At that time, I posted several items in the lounge, in an attempt to help (and obtain assistance) in addressing that horrid situation. The actions of that expert would not have been known to me had they not been discussed in the lounge, as the items pointed out were premium responses, with which I was not involved. To make a very long story short, I feel strongly that our focus should be squarely on each user who has requested our assistance.



    Experts in the lounge at the time primarily focused on inappropriate premium responses, and on taking action to prevent his further response to premium questions. I felt that it was equally important to stop his posting of this type of material in any case, premium or not. In fact, as you know, the free postings, which are visible to anyone on the site, could have had an even greater impact than the premium postings, which have a fairly limited audience. Then, to an even greater extent, I felt that the users who had been subjected to that mistreatment needed and deserved as much assistance as possible; and although I obviously could not "erase" the language they had already seen, I did my best to post sincere apologies for that behavior, and to provide the types of responses and assistance they should have received.



    I visit the lounge for informational purposes on occasion, and I address primarily the free questions in the forum. Therefore, I am not as visible as many of the others. There are a number of experts who appear to routinely demonstrate professionalism in their conduct. However, I have to tell you that I also see your continuous emphasis on the customer, and that, I believe, is one of the strongest identifying attributes of a true expert. Thank you again!

Hi smartsolve,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me" and much more calling my attention to this concern. I have to admit that I missed seeing this and your "Ask Me" saved me from an embarrassing situation.

With your kind indulgence, I would bring this action of yours to the attention of the community in general through the Lounge that others may emulate your "team spirit". Again Thanks.

I hope this is the one your are looking for (click here). Since you didn't mention the exact model, i can't give you the specific manual for Super 3g Fax (what you've mentioned is a canon fax model series).

If you need further help, let me know with the exact model of your super 3g fax.

Good luck.

Could not UNINSTALL downloaded version of driver for epson 500


It helps if we know the OS but I'll carry on as if you have XP.

Disconnect the printer from PC, click start/printers and faxes Right click on the workforce and select delete.

Next go into control panel/add remove programmes and uninstall all epson software.

Reboot and reinstall DO NOT connect printer until told to by the install prog.

When I insert the flash card it asks me to format it, but if I do I will lose the data on it which cannot happen. what do I do?


Well, I already swam through these waters with another person. After a couple of days, it seemed that this was the best solution to the problem.
If it doesn't work, which I am fervently hoping it will, just post a comment and we'll see what other options we can take.
Hope this works for you.

Hi,

My apologies for the delay in responding. If it were not for another member of the community smartsolve calling my attention, I would have failed seeing this post of yours entirely.

To your concern, a couple of ideas:
  • determine whether it is a jetflash problem or USB port problem of the PC. try a different flashdrive in your PC or try the jetflash in another PC;
  • if you have determined that it is indeed the jetflash that is the concern, pls go to the JetFlash site or specifically to their Download Center, enter the exact model number of your flashdrive. Look for Utilities, Recovery and firmware applicable to your unit.
  • if it is the PC's USB ports that is the issue, pls try to rollback the USB drivers or update the drivers using the manufacturer's drivers instead of the Microsoft installed ones.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
