But I tryed what your doing in fact i went out and bought a external unit because of this fact, the issue is compatability.

Thanks

Starting today my drive is being read as a cd-rom only, i cant burn a dvd. wont even read a disk (i have cleaned the lens).


This in indicative of a dying drive.

I have no idea why but external drives do seem more prone to it.

Additionally if you have recently added any new burning software you may want to un-install it as I have seen that too fix similar issues.

May I suggest you connect it to a different computer first to eliminate your own computer as a suspect.

Make sure you use the leads that came with the drive and not one that just happens to fit as some leads are not always compatible even though they may look the same.

If it is still under warranty you may want to investigate that option.

Hope this gives you enough to get you sorted out as to what to do next.

Incompatiable disc (everio share station via usb 2.0)


I devised these simple steps that tend to remedy quite a few issues with most USB portable / external hard drives and devices (though not always)

A few things to check but assumes USB and Windows for other interfaces / operating systems similar steps may be adapted to suit.

1. Ensure it is connected directly to the computer to a USB 2.0 port not a USB 1.0 port as this can have effects on performance and reliability

2. Use only the cables that came with it NOT one that fits that may have been lying around or is longer. Not all USB cables are equal even though they should be)

3. Do not connect through an external USB HUB unless that hub is USB 2.0 AND has its own power supply.

4. Use ONLY the power supply that came with it if it has an external power supply Don’t use any other unless you know it has both the same voltage and current rating e.g. 12V 500mA anything rated below that would not work properly.

5. Always use the same port for connecting your devices. Some devices do not like being switched about. If switched they may want to install software / drivers again. This can be especialy true if you move a HUB to another port

If you checked and fixed anything there and still have issues then check your hardware from CONTROL PANEL / SYSTEM / HARDWARE.
Any exclamation marks by hardware need fixing before you investigate any further

If you can hear clicking then I am afraid there is a serious problem with the hard drive.

The noise you can hear is usually known as "the click of death" when referring to hard drives.

Most common causes are that the drive unit was dropped or mishandled or just plain old age

There is no known cure unless the data is mission critical

In which case you could sent it to a data recovery specialist but this is usually VERY expensive.

If you are advised to place it in a freezer or anything similar then that is up to you but my advise would be to run from the person who may give this advise.
This is very old fashioned advice and meant for very old types of drives that used to get very hot.

If it a drive that was / is from an external enclosure then you could still use the enclosure
and just place a new hard drive in there

My laptop is Dell Vostro 1400, 18 months old. i am getting green stripes on screen, nothing else not even cursor. please help.


Seems like graphics card problem.

It may be that the card needs to be reseated (don't do it yourself if you have not done it before).

If it is a software problem, then following procedure may correct it.

Restart the computer and right after tap F8 key continuously.
You will see advanced boot menu.
Use up/down key on keyboard and select Last Known Good Configuration and hit enter
It should boot you up.

If that does not work, do the above procedure and instead of Last known select "Safe mode" from the list. Log into your account and click "No", it will show you system restore window, You can try to restore the computer to an earlier date when it was working fine.

I know your problem however it is easily fixed, the burner has worn out, the laser basically is not putting out enough light for it to work properly, the best and easiest fix, goto tigerdirect.com and replace the burner, they now start as low as 24.00 and go up to around 65.00 so it's not an expensive fix.
