Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC

1 Answer

Thank you for your answer concerning new USB devices

In your answer you said that it's a pity i do not have a registry backup.
I have found that my Registry Healer application did save such complete record, but this is old backup from a few months back.
what happens if i restore this old backup? do i lose important current data? do you recommend it?
thank you again, you have been very kind.

You will loose current system information (what program is installed) but not saved data onto the disk.

backup the current registry before applying the old one and reboot the computer after applying the old registry. this is the last resort and it might render your computer unusable (windows will not load). only do this as a step to try before deciding to re-install windows.

the registry is windows itself.

Have you tried a different USB port? If you have and it still dose not work then I would do the following.

Select My computer
Select Manage
Select Device manager
Select the Diskdrives
Find your USB HDD esternal
Right click and select uninstall
Then scan for new hardware this will reinstall the drivers for that device.
Often the device driver or registry becomes corrupt this will 9 times out of 10 resolve the problem.
If this still dose not resolve it test your Drive on another PC to make sure its not the External HDD that is having a controller problem.

I cant delete my files on my flash drive everytime i click it the WRITE PROTECTED always prompt! that i need to unlock it


I found this on another site, I tried it down to finding the usb device, you do the remaining part at your own risk, I'm very cautious about editing my registry.
Gary




USB drives can be write-protected by modifying the StoreageDevicePolicies Registry key and WriteProtect Registry value.
# # Start>run>regedit to open Registry Editor. and press control+F to open the find dialogue box and type "usb device" or "driverdesc" to open usb mass storage device or type "usb mass storage device" in the search windows. And right click on it and delete. This will set the policy value to 0. then insert your usb device. It will work fine.
# Remember: do not delete any unknow files in the registry as this will make some programes not work as usual.

Problem accessing songs on Philips HDD065/05 Jukebox


What you have to do is this: 1) The HDD Detection tool Connect the device to the PC, load up Musicmatch. On the left click "Portable Device" tab, wait for the PC to show your device. The device should show as "Philips GoGear" if it's showing as "Philips Nike" go to "Tools" on the right, click "Settings" click drop-down menu & choose GoGear. You need to do this everytime you transfer files. If that doesn't work, you need to do this: 2) Manual Re-Install You can re-install the player manually by doing this : - connect the player to your pc by USB cable - uninstall all Installed software for the player - remove device from Windows Device Manager : - Desktop - right click on "My Computer" - select Properties from the menu a new windows appears: System Properties - click on the tab "Hardware" - click on "Device Manager" a new window appears" The Device Manager navigate to the player (should be shown as Philips Nike) at the USB Devices - right click on the player - select "un-install" from the menu - Windows will unsinstall the device - If the player is not listed, the device has been deleted Now to edit the Windows Registry: (Note: Mistakes cannot be un-done so be VERY careful) 1. Disconnect all usb devices. 2. Go to the registry (Start -> Run -> type "regedit") 3. Make a backup of the registry -click "file" -click "export" -Search/Create a logical location ("C:\REGBACKUP" for example) -choose a filename ("registry backup Date.reg" for example) -Please pay attention if Export range is set to "All" -click on save 4. Click on the + infront of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -Click the + of SYSTEM -Click the + of CurrentControlSet -Click the + of Enum -Click the + of USB Here you can remove all VID``s -Before you remove the VID you have to set the right permissions, this can be done as follows: Right click on the folder USB and click on "Permissions", select in the window that pops-up Everyone and and select "Full control" at the permissions. 5. Reboot PC without ANY USB devices connected - install the software and plugins - connect the device to your pc by usb Check if device works and if still showing as "Philips Nike" try the first step again.
