Micro sd memory card password remover


Micro Secure Digital memory cards, or Micro SD cards, provide storage for a variety of different kinds of devices, including mobile phones, PDAs and cameras.

They can be protected by passwords so that the information that you have saved on it is secure. Sometimes, the password can be forgotten or lost.

Recovering your password is easily done with your computer and SD card reader on your computer.

Place the micro SD card into your card reader on your computer.
Right-click your "Start" button and then "Explore".

Find the micro SD card, it will be listed as a removable drive.
Click on the micro SD card and the files will show on the right-hand side.

Find the file that says " MMCSTORE" and then select "Copy."
Right-click on your desktop and then click "Paste."

This will move the MMCSTORE file to the desktop so that you can get access to edit it.
Right-click on the MMCSTORE and then click on "Open With."

Open the file with Notepad.
Read the text to find the password. It will be in plain text.

Remove the SD card from the computer and place it into the device for which it is used as storage.

Turn on the device.
When it prompts you for the password, enter it.

Where to find the reset button on my packard bell pc hard drive




Click on the "Start" button and input "Recovery" into the search box. Click on "Recovery Manager."


Click on the "Advanced Options" button when the Windows recovery manager appears. Choose the "System Recovery" option from the list and click on "Next."

Click "No" to decline using the Microsoft system restore and click "Next." Note that HP computers have their own restore system.

Click on "Back up your files first (recommended)." Click on "Next." Follow the instructions given to you by the recovery manager for backing up your files.

This is your opportunity to back up any important or original files before you reset the HP computer to its original settings.

Save these files to removable storage devices such as DVD disks, CD disks, alternative hard drives (that you are not performing a system reset on) or flash drives.

Click on "Next" when the screen reads "Recover without backing up your files." Note that after you proceed with this step, you will lose any and all information on your Hard Drive that you did not back up.

Restart your computer after it has finished the recovery procedure. Visit the HP Support and drivers website and click on the option that says "Download drivers and software (and firmware)." Enter your computer model number (find this on the front of your tower) and press "Enter."

Download the most recent drivers and save them on your desktop. Double-click the driver package and follow the on-screen instructions to install the drivers.

Insert your removable storage device that contains the files that you backed up. Copy the files to the appropriate places on your hard drive.

hope this helps

I need to download my pictures from my camera into my computer please help me thank you


There are two possible ways to go about transferring your photos from a digital camera onto your computer. Please note that the given solutions both assume you are running Microsoft Windows XP or newer as the steps may be slightly different on a Macintosh or earlier versions of Windows.

Option 1: USB Transfer Cable. Most digital cameras come packaged with a cable that has a standard USB jack on one end, and a smaller plug on the other end. Locate the appropriate hole on your camera that the smaller plug (Micro-usb) will fit into. There is a decent chance this hole will be covered by a silicone or rubber flap, so that should help you find it. Plug the full size USB plug into your computer and a pop-up should appear on your screen asking you what you want to do with the new storage device. Scroll to the last option "Open a folder to view the files" and double-click. From there, simply copy and paste photos to the desired directory on your computer.
Please note: If you do not receive the pop-up, simply navigate to My Computer, and look for a device that is not your hard drive (Typically C:\) or your CD\DVD drive (Typically D:\) and double click to open it up. The pictures should be located in a folder named DCIM, but it varies by manufacturer so you may have to check a few folders to find them.

Option 2: Memory Card Reader. Alternatively, if your computer has a memory card reader you can simply remove the memory card from the camera and plug it into an appropriate slot in the card reader. Most memory cards are located right next to the battery storage on modern cameras. Pictures of typical card readers for a desktop (fig. 1) and laptop (fig. 2) are provided below. Once the memory card has been inserted, you should see a pop-up asking what you want to do with the new storage device. Scroll to the last option "Open a folder to view the files" and double-click. From there, simply copy and paste photos to the desired directory on your computer.

I cannot use my usb or flask drive because it is write protected


4 different ways how to eventually solve this problem:
1) Try a program Thumbscrew (http://www.irongeek.com/i.php?page=security/thumbscrew-software-usb-write-blocker) which switches storage devices' write protection on or off.

2) Or do the same thing manually, by go to Start > Run > type "regedit" > Ok HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies\WriteProtect
Value 1 is for "on" and 0 for "off".

3) Plug the USB hard driver in different USB slots on your computer, maybe one of them is faulty.
4) Disable the Disk Write Caching of the relevant USB hard disk drive:
  1. Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
  2. Click the Hardware tab.
  3. Click Device Manager.
  4. Click the plus sign (+) next to the Disk Drives branch to expand it.
  5. Right-click the drive on which you want to enable or disable disk write caching, and then click Properties.
  6. Click the Disk Properties tab.
  7. Click to select or clear the Write Cache Enabled check box as appropriate.
  8. Click OK.

Need documentation on how to attach WD PassPort HDD to Belkin N+ router using usb port on router ... to be accessed by Windows 7


Gather and connect all necessary connecting cables. You need an Ethernet cable to go from the box linking the hard drive to your wireless router in one of the open ports on the back of your wireless router, and a USB cord connecting your external drive to the storage link box (unless you are using a flash memory device or stick drive).Power up the devices. Make sure your Internet connection Is working and that the storage device is working properly.Insert the Setup CD into your computer. Follow the instructions and install any necessary utilities for the specific type of external drive you are using. Configure the storage link. During setup you should have been given the option to secure the device with a login name and password. Open the device and log in. Make any changes you want to on the storage device, but if you aren't sure what specific changes you want to make to the default settings, leave the default settings alone to avoid creating problems.
