Hello, if you are adding an extra hard drive for space make sure to change the teeny jumper to the proper pins next to the connection slots on the hard drive. the jumper makes your hard drive work as a slave (extra drive) or a master (main drive). if you have a main drive allready on your comp and you dont switch the jumper the slave position the computer will not recognize it becuase of the new hard drives jumper being in the master position or pin connector.
if your installing it as a 2nd master drive you need to use your extra hard drive slot on the mother board for this to work as a secound master then you need the jumper in the master pin slot. there is a small diagram on to the hard drive info label it looks like pins and it shows you where to locate or place the jumper for either master or slave.
for a slave drive once you have placed the jumper properly then you can instal it on the same cable with the main. look at the cable it will have a main and a slave small label printon the connector or if you prefer you can use the 2nd hard drive cable on the secound slot on the mother board turn on your comp if you are going for a extra hard drive the comp should recognize it if the jumper is properly placed. when your comp is running you can check by going into (computer) and it should be there as a new drive letter

after this you may need to format the drive for use. you right click on the hard drive letter and choose format drive

hope this helps good luck with your upgrade.

Hello, I have a Hitachi DZMV780A camcorder and I need a USB driver in order to transfer the footage from my camera to my computer. I have the apropriate cord but the camera doesn't show up on my...


I think, you have to install first the driver before connecting your device to your desktop. The driver gives the PC an instruction on how to read and detect the device when connected. try searching the internet for the driver, i guess your device's website has a support for it.

regarding the mini dvd. first make sure that your cd-drive is capable of reading dvd. otherwise, it can't be read. some dvd drives makes it hard to read mini dvd's due to the shape of it, and they are not designed for those. Try reading the mini dvd to other dvd-rom, and just copy the contents. either burn it to a normal sized dvd, or just make an image and copy it to your USB.

Replaced sparkplugs and sparkplug wires, now runs rough. I checked connections all tight. check firing orger, looks right. run good till I touched it. Help.


Check the firing order with the firing order diagram that I have uploaded, and if that does not solve the problem then remove the spark plugs and be certain that there is an even spark plug gap between all of the spark plugs, (see the emission label under the hood for the correct spark plug gap) and be certain that there is not any split-fire or multi-fire spark plugs installed in the engine, because those plugs will not work with an OBD-II system, and a random mis-fire is the least that they will cause if installed in an OBD-II controlled vehicle.

How to dolad games


  1. Update your iPod Software to at least 3.xx version
    This is important as lower version of the software would not allow you to download any applications. You can do so from iTunes. Once you connect your iPod Touch or iPhone to the computer and start iTunes, it will tell you if there is a newer version of the software to upgrade. Just follow the instructions.
  2. Step 2 ** Restart your iPod/iPhone
    This step is just to reboot your iPod system to make sure the new software is in effect.
  3. Step 3 ** Download applications aka games
    Make sure your iPhone/iPod Touch is connected to the internet. On your iPod touch/iPhone home page, there will now be a link labeled: 'Apps store'. Select that link. Now, you are free to browse the many applications and games that iTunes has to offer. Some games are free while others may require you to pay. .
  4. Step 4 **Install the application aka game
    Once you have selected a game to install, tap the box that says, "free" in the right hand corner. It will then read, "Install". Tap the box again. Now, wait for the application to install on your home page.

    • If newly installed, try uninstalling and reinstalling the device.
    • Once installed correctly, this error is unusual and may mean the device is faulty and needs to be replaced.
    • Some modems must be installed in a very precise order as dictated by the manufacturer. Be certain to closely follow the installation instructions. Consult the manufacturer's web site for a copy of the instructions or for an updated driver.
    Good luck!!!!!!!!!
