You might try using a Linux distro like Linux Mint and see if it will mount the drive and
find your files. Just get a live distro with the tools to mount Microsoft file systems.

I want to back up my hard drive to an external hard drive(Western my book 320G)I do not wish to purchase their auto back-up program.Can this be accomplished?


Yes it can,. Your external HDD will show up in "my Computer" as another drive. You can transfer files simply using copy and paste. (or edit -> copy files to folder) which I advise. Bear in mind that hidden, and read only files will not be copied. These files include the mailboxes in Outlook Express. So be careful. I advise making copies of all files of this kind, first.

Avi format files reading problem


I think its due to lack of supporting files. Normally there will be some files in the DVD other than the .Avi files. Try making a new DVD with a well known DVD making software like Nero or video editing softwares like Ulead,Adobe Premier etc.

Removed memory card from camera


Yep, the corrupted files are stored on the memory card.

A new card should sort it out, only you will probably lose your files.

Often you do not even need a new card, you just format the old one.

How do I repair corrupted files ?


You can run scandisk on that drive and see if it repairs the index.

Go to my computer move the mouse to the drive.

Press the right mouse button.

Press properties.

Select the tools tab

Select error checking.

If that doesn't work you should check to see if something is going on with the power supply or the drive itself.

Corrupt Date Book Fixed


Updated Instructions Simple fix for a corrupted Date Book sync error (at least it worked for me on my Treo 650). 1). Turn off 'Show Calendar Event' in the Phones 'Options - General Preferences' menu. 2). Turn off phone. 3). Set the Date/Time to the maximum limits (12/31/31) in Preferences. 4). Open the Calendar and view the maximum day 12/31/31. 5). Select 'Purge - (Delete events older then 1 week)' in the Calendars Options menu. 6). Reset the Date/Time to the current day in Preferences. 7). Hotsync (Desktop Calendar overwrites handheld). 8). Hotsync again to make sure you don’t get the error (Synchronize the files). That’s it. =============================== Outlook Calendar The attempt to open the database failed. Date Book application database is not found. Please invoke the Date Book application on the handheld once and re-synchronize. OLERR:05-0001 OLERR:0D-0004 OLERR:0D-0001 - Not Synchronized Outlook Calendar synchronization failed OLERR:15-0002 OLERR:06-0001 ===============================
