I've actually had a Hard Drive running with a missing pin. However, somewhere along the line it will give blue screen errors, but atleast may give you enought time to get what you can off it.

We have a Windows XP system on a 14 year old Dell computer.. We are desirous of transferring data from that system to a new computor. My husband purchased an Acomdata Hi-speed 2.0 external hard drive...


If both your Dell and the hard drive have USB ports you may be able to download directly. Other wise you may purchase an external drive and load the data to that. The external drive almost certainly will connect by USB.

Can I transfer downloaded games from my old xbox360 to my new xbox360


If your console was recently repaired or if you've purchased a new console, use the license transfer option on your console to transfer content licenses. Here's how:
  • On your console, sign in to Xbox Live using the gamertag that you used to purchase the content.Don't know your gamertag? See Download, move, or delete your Xbox Live profile.
  • Need to find your Microsoft account? See Find your Microsoft account.
  • Can't remember the password for your Microsoft account? See Recover your Microsoft account password.

  1. Go to Settings and select Account.
  2. Under Your Billing Options, select License Transfer.
  3. Follow the instructions to transfer the content licenses.
  4. After the licenses are transferred, you need to download the content again to update the local licenses. For information about how to do this, see Download content you've previously purchased.
After you follow these steps, content can be used by other profiles on your console and when you're not connected to Xbox Live.

VIP 922 wont start up


David J McClure,

I can definitely provide more information on this. There isn't a way to transfer the hard drive from the old receiver to the new one, but our HD DVR equipment does have the option of using an EHD to backup and store recordings.

If you are able to get the old receiver working temporarily, all you need to do is plug in an EHD and it will ask you to format. Once it is done, you can transfer recordings to the hard drive for additional storage space, and to back them up so they can be transferred to a replacement if it is needed. Let me know if you have any other questions.

My computer mother board is bad. I need to transfer all my information from the hard drive to a new computer. Is there a way to do this.


Just take the hard drive out of your old computer and hook it up to another computer via a usb port with a device like this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812232002

Then when you have it hooked up to your new computer via the usb port just transfer the files you need from the old computers hard drive to the new computers hard drive in windows explorer.

Need to install new hard drive, but want to keep game saves etc. Do I install drive and simply use transfer cable to retrieve dat from old drive?


That's exactly what you do. Once you transfer the information, it will no longer be on the old hard drive. In other words, it will move the information, not copy.

For more information, check Microsoft 360 Support website at the following page:

My Seagate FreeAgent Go250GB become write protected for Macbook, but works fine on windows laptop. How can I fix this issue?


It's probably formatted to the wrong filesystem; Macs prefer HFS+, Windows prefers NTFS, but they both can read and write FAT32. I'd recommend using the Mac's Disk Utility application to reformat the drive to be FAT 32 (but be careful, this will erase the external hard drive, so back up first!)

I am trying to transfer my old computer files to this hard drive which I will then transfer to my new computer. It says there is not enough room.


Make 2 or 3 small transfers as opposed to one big one. The less information that you try to move at once, the less chance of total corruption of all of your files.

Transferring data from an external hard drive


Best solution is to make an image of the PC and then use that image to transfer it back. Norton Ghost is a good application for that, but there are more.

Transferring an internal hard drive to another computer


Hi,

There are several ways but the easiest would be to use an external USB interface such as a VANTEC CB-ISATAU2 SATA/IDE to USB 2.0 Adapter or any comparable product. This would provide the IDE connections to your old hard drive as well as a USB cord to your new PC's USB port. This is of course assuming that all you would want is access to the files/data in the old hard drive.

If your plan is to use the old hard drive as the master (meaning you want to boot from it and use your old OS with its settings on the new PC), chances are you would need to reinstall/repair the old OS since it would not run in the new PC.

If you want to install the old HD as a permanent device inside the new PC, you would need an IDE connector and install the old HD as a secondary master/slave.

If you just need to copy/move files from the old HD to the new PC, the initial method would be your best bet. The interface can be borrowed for a one time use.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
