You can manually copy files to any drive using Windows Explorer. If your camera software is doing it automatically then you need to check the Options or Preferences menu and select a new default path to save to.

    Could it be the software you are using is installed on that drive and that is why it defaults to that drive? If so uninstall and reinstall the software to the C drive.

How to fix No Bootable Media Error Message


FAT (File Allocation Table) is one of the most widely used file systems used now-a-days with various versions of Windows operating systems and memory cards. Every logical partition contains a FAT that consists of file allocation information and the information of free allocation units that need to be assigned to files. Although the FAT file system is reliable, corruption still occurs due to various reasons. In such situations of FAT corruption, your system becomes unbootable, resulting into inaccessibility of data saved in FAT based hard drive. To access the data after FAT file system damage, an easy way is to restore the data from an updated backup. But, with inaccessibility of data backup or backup falling short to restore the required data, an ideal option left is to use an advanced FAT Data Recoveryapplication that can recover the lost data.

To illustrate the above scenario, consider a practical case the below error message pops up when you attempt to boot your system:

“No Bootable Media”

As the above error message appears at the time of booting the system, you wont be able to access the data saved in the hard drive.

Cause:

The above error message because the FAT file system has been corrupted. Few main causes for file system damage are improper system shutdown, human errors, and virus attack.

Resolution:

To isolate the above error message and to access the data after the above error message appears, you will need to follow the below steps:

Run CHKDSK utility to repair the FAT file system. If the problem persists, format the hard drive.

While the latter resolution resolves the above error message completely, it also deletes the data saved on your hard drive. In such cases, if the backup is not available, then you can only recover your formatted data by using an advanced third-party FAT Data Recovery software.

A FAT Partition Recovery utility thoroughly scans a FAT based hard drive and recovers almost all data, even after formatting. The data recovery utility can be downloaded from the Internet.

Stellar Phoenix Windows Data Recovery is an efficient FAT Partition Recovery tool that recover lost, deleted, and formatted data from both FAT (FAT12, FAT16, FAT32, VFAT) and NTFS (NTFS, and NTFS5 ) based hard drives. The detailed help manual attached with the tool allows even a new user to perform recovery easily without any technical knowledge. It supports Windows 7, Vista, XP, 2003, and 2000.

Want to use Drive D to go onto the internet.


Easiest thing to do.
You can move all the music and videos to Drive D and save all your music and videos to D when you save from the internet. You can do this just by redirecting your save or download to Drive D. If you don't know how to move them to Drive D, all you have to do is just right click, on the folders where your music and videos are, select cut and then navigate to the Drive D. Then right click inside Drive D and select paste. That is all it is to it. If you have more questions just let me know. Hope this helps.

My c drive is full but my d drive is empty. how do i start to fill up my d drive?


If your cd drive is full you should move media files like movies and music to the D drive. Just drag the files from the folders on C drive to your D drive. You should make folders on the D drive so you can keep things organized. It's critical to get a nice chunk of free space back on the C drive. If the operating system is installed on the C drive it will run slow when the drive is too full. You may also want to start archiving files on burnable media such as cd or dvd or place files on an external hard drive.
