1st - Right click the drive icon, i think you will find Autorun at First, if it is..
2nd - Right lick and press explore
Before that you have to enable Show Hidden files and Folders in Tools Menu, Folder Options.
3rd - You will find some files, that is like command prompt icon and Autorun icon.
4th - Delete both the files and reboot the computer..
The problem is solved...

or use USB Disk Security V5.0.0.85 - www.freshwap.net and install.... it will delete the files...

How can i remove a forgotten password from a laptop?


Windows 8: Simply log on to an computer and change your Microsoft account passoword.

WIndows 7:
1. Use the password reset disk, if you have one.
2. Have an admin log on to his account and change the password for you.
3. "from about.com"
  1. Insert either your Windows 7 installation DVD, or a Windows 7 System Repair disc, into your optical drive and then restart your computer. If you have either on a flash drive, that'll work too.Tip: See How to Boot From a CD, DVD, or BD Disc or How to Boot From a USB Device if you've never booted from portable media before or if you're having trouble doing so.
    Note: If you don't have original Windows 7 media and never got around to making a system repair disc, don't worry. As long as you have access to any other Windows 7 computer (another in your home or a friend's will work fine), you can burn a system repair disc for free. See How to Create a Windows 7 System Repair Disc for a tutorial.
  2. After your computer boots from the disc or flash drive, click Next on the screen with your language and keyboard choices.
    Tip: Don't see this screen or do you see your typical Windows 7 logon screen? Chances are good that your computer booted from your hard drive (like it normally does) instead of from the disc or flash drive you inserted, which is what you want. See the appropriate link in the tip from Step 1 above for help.
  3. Click on the Repair your computer link.
    Note: If you booted with a system repair disc instead of a Windows 7 installation disc or flash drive, you won't see this link. Just move on to Step 4 below.
  4. Wait while your Windows 7 installation is located on your computer.
  5. Once your installation is found, take note of the drive letter found in the Location column. Most Windows 7 installations will show D: but yours may be different.
    Note: While in Windows, the drive that Windows 7 is installed on is probably labeled as the C: drive. However, when booting from Windows 7 install or repair media, a hidden drive is available that usually isn't. This drive is given the first available drive letter, probably C:, leaving the next available drive letter, probably D:, for the next drive - the one with Windows 7 installed on it.
  6. Select Windows 7 from the Operating System list and then click the Next button.
  7. From System Recovery Options, choose Command Prompt.
  8. With Command Prompt now open, execute the following two commands, in this order:
    copy d:\windows\system32\utilman.exe d:\ copy d:\windows\system32\cmd.exe d:\windows\system32\utilman.exe To the Overwrite question after executing the second command, answer with Yes.
    Important: If the drive that Windows 7 is installed on in your computer is not D: (Step 5), be sure to change all instances of d: in the commands above with the correct drive letter.
  9. Remove the disc or flash drive and then restart your computer.
    You can close the Command Prompt window and click Restart but it's also okay in this situation to restart using your computer's restart button.
  10. Once the Windows 7 logon screen appears, locate the little icon on the bottom-left of the screen that looks like a pie with a square around it and then click it!
    Tip: If your normal Windows 7 logon screen did not show up, check to see that you removed the disc or flash drive you inserted in Step 1. Your computer may continue to boot from this device instead of your hard drive if you don't remove it.
  11. Now that Command Prompt is open, execute the net user command as shown, replacingmyusername with whatever your user name is and mypassword with whatever new password you'd like to use:
    net user myusername mypassword So, for example, I would do something like this:
    net user Tim 1lov3blueberrie$
    Tip: If your username has spaces, put double quotes around it when executing net user, as in net user "Tim Fisher" 1lov3blueberrie$.
  12. Close the Command Prompt window.
  13. Login with your new password!
  14. Create a Windows 7 Password Reset Disk! This is the Microsoft-approved, proactive step you should have done a long time ago. All you need is a blank flash drive or floppy disk and you'll never need to worry about forgetting your Windows 7 password again.
  15. While not required, it would probably be wise to undo the hack that makes this work. If you don't, you won't have access to accessibiily features from the Windows 7 login screen.
    To reverse the changes you've made, repeat Steps 1 through 7 above. When you have access to Command Prompt again, execute the following:
    copy d:\utilman.exe d:\windows\system32\utilman.exe Confirm the overwrite and then restart your computer.
    Important: Undoing this hack will have no impact on your new password. Whatever password you set in Step 11 is still valid.

Open command prompt(if your using Windows): Click start -> Run(if your using Windows 7 just type CMD on the start search) type CMD and press Enter.

On the Command Prompt(black screen with a blinking cursor) type the following command;

chkdsk [drive:] /F - wherein [drive] is the drive letter for you Seagate external hard drive(to check just double clieck MyComputer(Computer for Windows 7) and look for the drive letter.

Run a check disk on the Drive and select Fix bad sectors.

    Running CHKDSK through the Windows Command Prompt:
  1. Go to the Windows Command Prompt. You can do this by clicking first the Start button and then clicking the Run button. After this, type "cmd" in the Open text box and press Enter.

  2. View the displayed Command Prompt screen.
    If you want CHKDSK to run in read-only mode, type:
    CHKDSK c:
    If you want CHKDSK to fix errors and not to check bad sectors, type:
    CHKDSK c:/f
    and press Enter in the Command Prompt.
    If you want CHKDSK to run thoroughly; that is, fix errors, find bad sectors in your hard drive and recuperate still readable data, type:
    CHKDSK c:/r or
    CHKDSK c:/p and press Enter in the Command Prompt.

  3. Running CHKDSK through My Computer (Windows XP)

    Initialize the properties of the hard drive you want CHKDSK to run. Open My Computer. Right click your mouse on the drive in which you want CHKDSK to run. Click the Properties button and click the Tools tab. In the Error-checking box, click the Check Now button.

  5. 2

    Set up the Check Disk options by checking one or both check boxes displayed. These are labeled "automatically fix file system errors" and "scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors". If you want CHKDSK to run in read-only mode, do not check either box. After this, click the Start button.

BOOTMGR is compressed press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart


Insert Microsoft Windows Vista Installation Disc.
Press any key when it says "Press any key to boot from CD".

After that you should see "Windows is loading files..."
KEEP pressing F8/F9(can't rmb which, just press both alternately) while
the progress bar loads..... Dun let go until you reach "Advanced boot
information" where you should see Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking,
Last Good known configuration etc...., just select Safe Mode with
Networking(or Safe Mode/Safe Mode with Command Prompt) and press Enter.
Wait for the files to load and there should be "Safe Mode" on 4 corners
of your monitor.

Just be patient and wait. A windows would soon pop up and says "Install
Windows". Don't worry, click next. Now at the bottom of this window, you
should see "Repair Windows". Click on it, and there are several options
available here. For this case, which is "Bootmgr is compressed.", CHOOSE
THE LAST OPTION - "Start Command Prompt".

OK type these things (Only works if you have Firefox, can't think of
anything else) below and follow closely:

When Command Prompt is started, type the command below first to ensure
that C Drive or whichever drive which contains all your system files is
selected:

LOOK FIRST!

X:System> (The string on the left is what appears on command prompt,
may differ on other computers.)

Now TYPE "C:" or "D:", depending on the hard disc volume you are
using...

SO IT BECOMES:

X:System>C:

PRESS ENTER
THE RETURNING COMMAND WOULD BE:

C:>

If you get this, very good, continue with the steps below.

Now Type:

CDProgram FilesMozilla Firefox

PRESS ENTER

THE RESULT SHOULD BE SOMETHING LIKE THIS:

C:>CDProgram FilesMozilla Firefox (Press ENTER)

C:Program FilesMozilla Firefox (<<<<< Result)


Now type "firefox".

wait for Firefox to launch now.
it doesn't matter if no internet is available.

Now on firefox, go to File > Open File

Double click "My Computer", and you should see your hard disc there,
but don't double click on the hard disc. Instead, click once on the hard
disc, RIGHT CLICK, and choose properties. AT THE BOTTOM, UNTICK, I
REPEAT, UNTICK THE BOX SAYING "Compress this drive to save space
etc....". NOW CLICK APPLY, WAIT, AND I MEAN WAIT PATIENTLY OK? AFTER
THAT CLICK ON "OK".

AFTER PRESSING OK, DO A QUICK LOOK AT YOUR DRIVE BY DOUBLE-CLICKING IT
NOW. IF ANY FILES/FOLDERS ARE BLUE IN COLOUR INSTEAD OF BLACK,
RIGHT-CLICK IT, CHOOSE PROPERTIES, CLICK ADVANCED BUTTON (Beside
Read-Only Box and Archive Box), UNTICK, I REPEAT, UNTICK the 3RD BOX
Which says "Compress contents to save disc space".

Click OK, Apply and close the folder/file properties.

Now close the box opened by firefox, close firefox, close command
prompt AND AT THE BOTTOM RIGHT OF THE FIRST WINDOW WHICH POPS UP
MENTIONED EARLIER, PRESS RESTART.

Your computer should be able to start properly now smile.gif





for xp:


Boot Manager is compressed
If by accident having compressed the entire boot partition, then Vista will display the following error:
BOOTMGR is compressed. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart
Check points for fixing compressed boot-manager:
* Boot into Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) and perform a “Startup Repair”.
* If the above doesn’t solve the problem then boot into WinRE again, but when selecting the Vista-installation, then press “Load Drivers” (Instead of “Next”) and use the mini Windows Explorer to right-click the boot-drive and deselect “Compress this Drive” and choose Apply to sub-folders and files.
* If that also fails then boot into WinRE again, and go to the “Command Prompt” and execute these commands:
o compact /U C:ootmgr
o compact /U C: tldr

I have a 100g usb hard drive that i have my music on.. i was wondering how to connect it to my ps3 like a flash drive does?


here you go


Connect the hard drive to your computer using a USB cord.

Check what the "File System" type is by going to Start, Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Computer Management, Disk Manager. Select the external drive and read the "File System" type. The file system type must be "FAT32" in order for the Playstation to recognize it.

If the file system type is "NTFS", right click and select "Delete Partition" or "Delete Volume" for Vista.

then recreate the partition but do NOT format it. Make sure you assign a drive letter (for this Tutorial, we'll use h:)

If you are running Windows, format the drive by going to the command prompt (Vista, right click on command prompt in start menu and click "run as administrator")and type in "format h: /FS:FAT32" (without the quotes). You may need to substitute your drive letter. (note this might not work on XP for a large hard drive - you may have to use a third-party formatting utility like SwissKnife; however, it does work under Vista - just be sure to use the format command from the DOS prompt, not from Windows Explorer)

If you are using Mac OS X, open /Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility.app, pick the drive, and click on the 'Erase' tab. Pick 'MS-DOS (FAT)' for the file system type, and click on the 'Erase' button. This will reformat the drive in FAT-32.

Open "My Computer" and double-click on your empty external hard drive.

Create a folder system identical to that on the Playstation 3 by creating folders labelled "Picture" (not Photo), "Music", "Video" and "Game".

Load all the music you want into your music folder, all the video you want into your video folder, and all the photos you want into your picture folder. Your game folder should still be empty.

Disconnect the hard drive by clicking the green arrow in the icon list and the bottom right hand corner of the screen and select "Safely remove..."

Once your computer tells you "XXX drive can now be safely removed", unplug the hard drive from your computer.

Connect the hard drive to your Playstation 3 and use the extra space to save information and access all your extra content saved on your external hard drive

Right Click on the Drive Icon and select Explore or Open. You can open the Hard Drive.
But now an Alert for you.
If you are seeing the other option than Open in bold letter then your PC is seriously infected with Virus, Run a good and updated Antivirus.
