You should be able to download directly to the external drive. Before you start the download, open Windows Explorer and see if the drive shows up and what letter it is assigned. Open the drive and create a new folder called 'Movies', or whatever you want to call it. When the download is started you should be prompted for the destination to save the file. Select the new folder and start the download. You can open the folder at any time and verify that the file is being saved. You can press F5 to update the size of the download.

Hope this helps!

Provided you have an external Hard Drive connected to your computer, you can download directly to it without a problem.

When the save as dialog open, just navigate to the external hard Drive, usually to a Drive Letter E F G ect...

How do I change the setting to get a smaller pixal for movies? Everytime I go to upload movies onto my computer it says the files are too large so I can't transfer them.


Instead of using Nikon Transfer NX or another picture transfer software, drag and drop the folder on your camera directly to your computer. I will explain. When you connect your camera to your computer, your computers plug-n-play software (this is about the same for a PC or Mac) recognizes the presence of your camera's SD memory card and treats it as it treats any memory device such as an external hard drive. As a result, using Explorer on a PC or Finder on a Mac, you can open the device and any folders on that device and drag and drop it into a location of your choice on your hard drive. Once it is on your hard drive, you should be able to open and play your video on any video player program.

PS3 hard drive transfer


seagate eSATA 250gb hard drive, the PS3 uses a laptop sata drive, how you get this to work?

You have basically have 2 options you could try:

Use Linux for retrieve the data of get the original mainboard back.

The PS3 + HDD bonds together, so if you were to save stuff eg, online purchases, you need to have the same account for max of 5 downloads to 5 differenct units, BUT you cannot just swap out the HDD and expect it to work. The PS3 has a feature to backup from internal directly to an external USB hard drive but online limited to data, most purchased movies and/or MP3 will not be transferred, it sucks.

You can have as much HDD you want but only YOU can use them , cannot be shared with another PS3. I hope that helps a bit

Inorder to play those files in your DVD player ,you need the check whether your DVD has a USB input port or else if you laptop or computer has a S-video out put and your TV has S-Video input ;you can play directly from your laptop/computer to the TV using a S-video Cable which is available in any Computer shop.
I hope this helps

How do i connect an external hard drive to my LG LCD Tv?


The LG's will support an external USB hard drive, but it seems the USB support was intended for thumb drives, so yuo need to do the following to get it working:
  1. the drive must be formatted FAT32 (like thumbdrives)
  2. keep the file names short
  3. keep the directory structure simple and as flat as possible
I have a 60GB laptop drive in a USB 2.0 enclosure drive working really nicely with good transfer rates. It takes it's power from the USB socket and is working fine.

Hope this helps.
