Whenever we click on the MyBook icon a message pops up that says: The drive or network connection that the shortcut "Shortcut to MyBook" refers to is unavailable... So I go to My Computer to try and access it and it's as if it doesn't recognize it at all. I know its connected properly...

Create a Shortcut or Hotkey to Eject the CD/DVD Drive


Create a Shortcut to Eject the CD/DVD Drive
Right-click on the desktop or elsewhere and choose New \ Shortcut.
In the location box, put the full path to the nircmd.exe file that you downloaded, and append the "cdrom open" command to the end of it, adjusting the drive letter to match your disc drive:
"C:\path\to\nircmd.exe" cdrom open D:
Note the location of the quotes.. if you are using a path with spaces in it, you need to make sure the quotes are only around the path to the executable, and the arguments should be placed after the quote.
Give the shortcut a meaningful name, like Eject CD or something like that, and you'll have a new icon (read below on how to use the cd-rom icon as shown)
Create a Shortcut to Close the CD/DVD Drive
You can follow the same exact instructions as above, but instead of "cdrom open" just substitute "cdrom close".
Assign a Hotkey to the Shortcut
Now that we have a shortcut, we can assign a hotkey to the shortcut by right-clicking on the icon and choosing Properties. On the Shortcut tab you'll see a place to assign the Shortcut key:

I have had an account with AOL for years without a problem but when I click on my desktop icon it will not open. What has happened and how do I fix it?


Hi there,

AOL shortcut was created on your desktop. Due to some technical issues, the configuration might have changed. Do not worry. I will help you to re-create another shortcut of AOL on your desktop for one time click and work,
When the AOL software is installed, a shortcut is created on your Windows desktop, allowing you to quickly and easily sign on. If your desktop icon is missing, or if it points to a version of the software other than the one you would like, follow these instructions.

To create an AOL icon on your desktop


1. On the Start menu, select Programs, then click Windows Explorer (on Windows XP, select All Programs, Accessories, then click Windows Explorer).
2. Browse to the folder that has your AOL software (e.g., C:\Program Files A File is an electronic document which can be text, pictures, sounds, videos or whole programs. Reminder: Never download files from someone you don't know. Files may contain dangerous Trojan Horse programs that may capture your AOL password, severely damage your computer, or contain objectionable graphics. To report a violation in an attached file, please forward the e-mail to screen name TOSReports.\America Online 9.0).
3. Click the file waol.exe once to select it.
4. On the File menu, click Create Shortcut.
5. Drag the new shortcut icon (Shortcut to waol.exe) to your Windows desktop.

Notes


·
You can rename your shortcut to something more meaningful to you. Simply press F2 on your keyboard while the shortcut is selected, type a new name, then press ENTER.
·
To delete a shortcut, drag it to the Recycle Bin. Your AOL software will still be on your computer.

That should work. For further reference, click the link;
