Question about LaCie d2 Extreme (300790U) 250 GB Hard Drive

2 Answers

Storage Limit incorrect

Hey All - any help with this issue is appreciated. I've got 2 folders on my ext. HD currently, one is 89gb & the other is 32gb -- however, I can't back anything else up to this drive as it's telling me the disk is full. Does not compute. Thanks in advance for any advice. I ran disk repair on it for the halibut, but no issues reported back.

If you are using windows XP then when you open the hard drive folder, select "folder options" from the "tools" drop down menu. Then select the "view" tab, fairly close to the top of the list that appears is the show/do not show hidden files and folders option, ensure "show hidden files and folders" is selected. Then check the hard drive again and see if anything has appeared. Check that there is not a drive partition that you didn't know was there - it will come up under "my computer" as a separate drive letter that you don't relate to any of your other drives. Check the hidden files routine for the "my computer" folder too. If you have nothing that was hidden large enough to make the difference, then the most likely problem is a minor corruption of the file allocation system, sometimes happens when a tiny surface fault in the disk which would otherwise be no problem happens to land exactly where some important data is located. The cure for this would hopefully be to save anything you want to keep from the drive and reformat it. (right mouse click on the drive, select "properties" and follow the instructions for whichever File allocation table system you want to use. If you are not using windows XP, the comments are almost certainly valid, there may be minor differences in the process - ask if you need more help with anything. Hope this helps :)

How to down load films to a 32 GB card Hudle2.Thanks


OK, to accomplish this you need 2 hings:
1. A micro sd card. (Which I gather you already have one)
2. File manager installed in your tablet.

Now, if the tablet support micro sd card, you are all set. Download the file manager, it could be Astro, ES File Explorer, etc...
Once installed, open the file manager. The tablet storage, which is known as internal storage, it is display as sdcard/storage (or sometimes as internal storage). Once you tap the internal storage, everything that is installed in your tablet will be display; (Android, DCIM, etc...) Now you need to look where are the pictures or films saved at. It is usually DCIM/Camera. Once you have found the pictures that you want to move or copy, long tap the films, depending on the file manager app, you must tap copy or move (NOTE: Since every file manager is different, some takes a little bit of extra steps, others requires for you to open a menu). Once you had chose to copy or to move it, look for the external sd card location, which will also be located at sd card/storage/ (32gb external storage) and choose this location to paste your films or pictures.
Another way is by using a computer. Make sure that you have all the drivers needed for the computer to recognize your tablet, you also need the usb charge cable. Once the computer recognize it when the tablet is plug in to the computer, open it by double clicking, there should be 2 storage display under the tablet folder: Internal storage and 32gb. external storage. Open the internal storage, look for where the films are saved (just like I explained with the file manager), choose the films that are to be move or copy, and jus drag and drop or press ctrl and C to copy, go to the external storage, open it and press ctrl and V to paste.

If you are running Win7 plug the USB drive in and wait for it to be recognized. Go to control panel, select Administrative Tools then Computer Management. Select Disc Management and you should find it there. Clear the partition and make a New Simple Partition. Then format it for use.

Volume limit password reset on ipod nano


Hi
How to Unlock iPod Volume Limit

Your iPod volume can be limited, and in many instances, a PIN number will be necessary to remove the limit. If you've forgotten or misplaced your PIN, you can still unlock your iPod volume limit using your computer.
1 Connect your iPod to your PC. Make sure your hidden folders are visible.
2 Navigate to the "iPod_control" folder. This will be a hidden folder. Once you've found the "iPod_Control" folder, navigate to the "Device" folder.
3 Locate the file named "_volumelocked" in the "Device" folder. Delete this file.
4 Eject and restart your iPod.
5 Navigate to "Settings" on your iPod. Select "Volume Limit." You'll be able to reset your volume limit with a PIN or password.

Tips & Warnings
Do not listen to your iPod at high levels for long periods of time; doing so can damage your hearing.

1. Try to delete all your temporary files from C:\Documents and Local settings\your document\temp folder. If it is hidden, in the menu bar click tool, folder option and then click the option button for Show hidden files and folders.
2. Try reinstalling your software. 
3. Run your anti-virus maybe a virus is blocking it.

3 problems writting on hd, drop connection n download master


Use a FAT32 Formatted partition (32GB) on your external USB Harddrive as the main Master Download Area. To do this, connect the drive to the PC by USB and re-partition the drive in sections with the disk manager. 32GB for the FAT32 and the rest in NTFS. Re-connect the drive to the WL500W USB and the FAT32 partition will be recognised automatically by the Router. Linux users can use the full HD drive if they format the drive in Ext2/Ext3. Correctly formatted USB memory sticks with a capacity of 32GB are better suited for this un-attended (low power) dowloading. You can use a (FAT32) 8 Gbyte stick also !

Warning !

Using only NTFS partitions will make the drive read-only and useless for un-attended downloads by the WL500W. Unfortunatly this is the case with 100% of all new availbale drives (>500GB) - So RE-PARTITION it wisely !!!

What about Queing (Waiting) ?

It waits for the connection and if bandwidth is available it starts the download. If files are missing on a server or the address is invalid an error is risen and the link is aborted or deleted. Many BitTorrent files are invalid or have nobody seeding. Waiting is therefore the best option.
