SOURCE: unable to format the drive r copy files to the drive

Pocket Fuzzies?
Get a bright light and look into the USB connector of the Cruzer. It is possible that there is lint, paper bits, cookei crumbs, etc in there and that is your problem. The outer 2 connections of the USB is DATA and the inner two Power. B/C it is able to flash,you are getting power... but the data lines may be dirty, covered, bent, etc.

Clean it up and try again. Flat toothpick, small ty-wrap or Proxident (dental/braces) brushes work well for this - DO NOT use anything Metal!! It will scratch the connectors and vastly shorten their life (they are GOLD plated)

Short of that, goto HP site and get their USB format tool (get it here: http://files.extremeoverclocking.com/file.php?f=197 ) and try reformatting... if that doesn't work, it is hosed and only I can fix it so let me know ;-)

One or more of the hints below will probably sort out most USB problems with most USB portable / external hard drives and OTHER devices (though not always)

A few things to check but assumes USB and Windows for other interfaces / operating systems (mac/ Linux) 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 especially true if you move a HUB to another port

6. For FLASH DRIVES you should ensure that the device is set for "quick removal" using the drive control panel properties or use the USB "Safely Remove Hardware" option. If you dont do this there is a very strong chance that any files you transfer may not be there when you plug into another computer.
7. It is possible to remove drives from the enclosures in most cases and connect directly inside a PC to fully check it.
You should also do this to cheack the drives connections are not bad inside the enclosure.
8. If none of the above steps help look at updating the drivers from the manufacturers web site in the support section.

9. 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
SPECIAL NOTES
USB flash drives can fail for no apparent reason.
Sandisk Cruzers are especially bad for this.

USB hard drives should be treated with extreme care.
This is a real hard drive ! and knocks and bumps can quite literally kill them.

Note that if you hear a drive clicking or pinging this could be the worst thing you would hear.

Network card disappeared overnite


Before adding any ethernet card, try to restore your system by using system restore option available with windows to a date on which your system was perfectly working. If the your system works fine after that, then it is quite likely to have your system infected by malicious software or anti virus. Scan your system for virus. If the ethernet is not working then add a new card after disabling the on-board network card in the CMOS setup.

My problem is that my dell gx260 driver infected by virus i need new dell driver


Have you gone to the Dell Support website? Go to the Dell Support website, then Drivers and Downloads and look up your computer. I found your computer so you should be able to find it, too. There are all the drivers you probably need, although you weren't specific in which driver you need.

Dell sound problem


sounds like the virus is still in the computer. you have to get something like Mc Afee virus protection, or Symantecs Spysweeper to get rid of it, and then you should be able to reinstazll the driver. If this does not work, try doing a system restore to the date before this started happening. to do this, go start programs, accessories, tools/system tools, the rest is self explanatory.

DELL STARTUP


There was problem at one time with IOGear KVMs not working correctly with the USB chipset on the Dell motherboards. This problem was resolved by using a USB hub between the KVM cable and the computer. The user could take the USB portion of the KVM cable and plug it into a USB hub and then take the USB hub and plug it into the Dell computer. That should help with the problem.
