Hp pocket media drive 160GB

Hi, trying to install my drive, but as soon as i connect it to the usb on my laptop a blue screen comes off telling me that windows has shut down so no problems arise......so i cant even begin to go to windows explorer to try and set it up.

alternatively if i try connect it through a usb hub, a ballon comes up on my taskbar right hand side saying their is a power overload and its not recognising the drive???

any ideas??

How do I solve a problem with starting up windows in my hp pavilion g6? Whenever I start windows a blue screen appears and the computer restarts.


Sounds like your hard drive has either failed, come disconnected, or someone performed a full format of the drive which wiped out the partitions or the boot sector of the drive. Worst case you will need to replace drive and purchase reinstall disk from hp. Best case you will only need to purchase reinstall disk from hp. If you do need a new drive, I recommend purchasing it from hp directly, as it will already be prepared with hps proprietary boot configuration files which must be present for hardware to be recognized by system bios.

I can't connect my hp 2790 pocket pc with my laptop can you tell me please if i have to download a programm so my laptop can recognize my pocket pc?thanks


Glad to help YOU!

You don't need to download and to install nothing particularly! No need of that.
When your PC doesn't recognize your laptop or any other attached device via USB it means there's a faulted USB connector. It could be on the PC the broken one, or it could be on the laptop.
Try different variants of connection. But first check the USB ports of the PC and laptop by attaching to each machine another device (iPOD, PDA, digital camera etc. - all via USB).

But there's another way to connect a laptop and a PC: via Wi-Fi and via Bluetooth.
Did you try to connect them like that?

You are using the correct connection, the external power supply is powering the drive, so the USB cable is just handling data. I believe the message may be telling you that you will get faster performance using a USB 2.0 connection, it is probably sensing that your computer's USB port is USB 1.1.

Hi, HP Pocket Media drives work like regutalr external hard drives, in fact, the bring an usb cable so you can connect it to any computer, not just HPs with the media bay. Are you using the HP bay or the USB cable? Regardless, after you connect the hard drive and go to my computer and see if it shows up. If it does, just select the files and do a copy and paste to the new hard drive. I dont know if you are having problems with the software it might have or the fact that it doesnt show up on the computer, but like I said you would handle it like a regular hard drive. I hope this helsp

Printer installation problem for Samsung V25 laptop.


Hello,
The issue is with the driver compatibility.
First I would ask if the recovery is latest?
Or else after the recovery update it with the web so as to get the latest service pack like sp3 for windows xp.

Second thing is that you can try to download the latest driver from the lexmark manufacturer.
Sometime with the latest driver update and will correct the the bugs.
