Question about Western Digital 1TB WD ELEMENTS USB 20DESKTOP EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE

1 Answer

Please say someone has a solution for me, very worried i've most my life's collection of music and movies =[

I left Utorrent downloading a film overnight, i have woken up to find an error message saying something along the lines of "Unable to save to the specified path please relocate the save path" (the drive was nowhere near full). I tryed to do this, then the computer hung up. I was forced to shut down by holding the power button for 3 seconds. Then when starting up again the computer hung on the HP boot screen, so i removed the external drive and repeated the shut down and started up again without the drive connected. Now every time i plug the drive into USB it beeps and hums for a second, i counted a total of 55 beeps before it decides to give up. My Computer does not recognise the drive anymore but when i go to 'safley remove hardware' it still knows it's a 'USB mass storage device' and a 'WD drive' . I've tryed the 'add new hardware' in 'control pannel' to no avail. I'm very worried i've lost all my data, is there anything i can do? Does anyone know what the 55 beeps mean? If this means it's dead, where can i go to get my data recovered (I live in Bristol, UK)? Thanks for any help. George

Try the WD USB hard drive in another computer. If you can access your data on another computer then backup your data.
If the WD USB hard drive is faulty then -
It is not possible to recover data from faulty hard drivesby mortals such as you and I.
There are companies that can recover data from faulty and damaged hard drivesBUT they wll charge an arm and a leg for their services.

Torrents are a great way for you to download full software, music, movies, games and more at incredible speeds. <br /><br />To begin downloading torrents you will need a program like uTorrent.<br />(uTorrent is a super sleek and memory friendly way of downloading torrents)<br />Download uTorrent: <a href="http://www.utorrent.com/">here</a><br /><br />You want to start your journey by visiting a torrent website.<br /><br />Some popular torrent websites can be found here.<br /><a href="http://isohunt.com/">ISOHunt</a> <a href="http://btjunkie.org/">BtJunkie</a> <a href="http://www.mininova.org/">Mininova</a> and my favorite <a href="http://thepiratebay.org/">Pirate Bay</a><br /><br />These websites are used to find movies, music, games or whatever you would like. You then download your choice of media as a .torrent file. View the images below for a picture guide to downloading .torrent files.<br /><br /><img src="walkerion.PNG" /><br />After you search for a torrent you will see a page of results, The fastest downloads will be the ones with a lot of seeders or "s" You can usually order seeders to go from highest to lowest.<br /><br /><img src="walkerion_0.PNG" /><br /><br />After you find a torrent with a lot of seeders click on it<br /><br /><img src="walkerion_1.PNG" /><br /><br /><br /><img src="walkerion_2.PNG" /><br /><br />Click on the download button and you will be able to save your .torrent file and open it with uTorrent<br /><br /><img src="walkerion_3.PNG" /><br /><br />After you open the torrent in uTorrent, you will see a percent of the download. Once it reaches 100% you can right click the torrent name and go to "open containing folder". <br /><br />And there you go, that is how you download torrents.<br />

Ok, I've got a new one here... I recently aquired


Hey, let me start by saying that uTorrent is a program mainly used for illegally downloading files to your computer, which is never a good idea. That's not to say that it is always illegal, just the only times I've heard of people doing it, was for illegal use, which you should talk over with your friend. It is always a bad idea to pirate software over the internet. Now, on to my assistance.
If the files you downloaded are taking up too much space, than here is what you can do to delete them. First, quit uTorrent. On a Mac, closing a program is not the same as quitting it, so here is how you quit. Go down to your dock (the little bar at the bottom, or the side of your screen with shortcuts to all of your applications) and select uTorrent (the green circle with the silver outline and the white "u" in the middle). The grey status bar at the top of your screen should show an apple logo, followed by "uTorrent, File, etc." If it says a different program name in the place of where "uTorrent" should be, try double clicking the uTorrent logo again. After that, hold down the "command" key (the key on either the left or the right of the spacebar) and the "q" key. Let go after a second. Once you have quit Utorrent, open finder, (the half blue, half white, square face on the left side of your dock) than hold the option key, the command key, and the L key. This should open your downloads folder. Select the files you wish do delete, and drag them to the trash, (the waste basket on the right side of your dock) than open the trash and click the empty button. These files are now permanently deleted from your computer. I would like to give you more help as far as what to do with the files you do want, but I have to know what they are. Email me at congochicken@gmail.com if you need more help.

I Can't find any websites to put movies on my GPX ML638B


>.>
<.<
I wonder if it is against the rules to tell you how to do that... hmmm oh well XD

You can find movies to download using free P2P programs such as limewire, or utorrent.

utorrent, however, is just a program for torrent to become active.

You must use a torrent to load onto the program to get the movie you are looking for.

Here is one site that host torrents: "mininova.org"

With limewire... the search for videos is easier but i would suggest an older version than Limewire 5

There are a number of sites for viewing and download movies but for the best collection of them i would suggest this site: "ovguide.com"

If you need help adding the movies to your mp4 player, please don't hesitate to ask me ^^

Hope this helps, <(^_^)>
