Im trying to make a VCP and browse source then browse destination, and a warning comes up not enough space on destination disc to write protected iso image. Although in the copylock window the source size...

Vmware? is it? or virtual com port?

i guess you didnt check space on the HDD,
do not get it near full ever, on any OS.
you never stated, HDD size nor space left.
you need more that 2.5gp space, id say, at least 5,
the vmware page 1 tells you all this, "basic sys. requirements"
do read that. its not simple the need. it has
install space need and dynamic need.
read how it works. there.

Saintsrow 2 use soft cloft to clean disc i did that it didnt work

I had the same issue with my Saints Row one disk. I simply had to install the game to the HDD to be able to play the game.

When installing the game to HDD it doesn't try to read it the same way as it does when playing directly from the disk. It might take a few times to get the disk readable to install but once it is on the HDD then you only have to have the disk in the tray to play.

I know it is only a work around but the best way that I have found to be able to play games with disk issues.

Msi u100 018us notebook says boot failure-press any key to continue---------and PXE-E61 media test failure check cable-------and PXE-MOF exiting PXE ROM wont let me boot computer can it be the hard drive...

It definetly can be the hard drive and most likely is. If you know how to get into BIOS then I would suggest going in there and seeing if BIOS can detect your HDD. If it cant then it definetly is your HDD. If it is detecting it then you might have a bad sector on the HDD that is corrupting the boot sequence for your operating software.

If BIOS is reading it I would suggest putting in your recovery CD or a fresh install of your operating system and see if it can reinstall to that HDD.

All BIOS system are different so I could not tell you without knowing what BIOS your running how to enter it. You should be able to hit escape for F10 while computer first is starting up to enter BIOS settings if you didnt know how to already. Write back if you have any more questions please or need further instructions or clearification on what ive said.

My segate 300Gb HDD keeps asking to format it when i recently pluged it into a new computer to transfer data to and it said that the driver didnt install correctly. since then it keeps asking to forma

I'm assuming that this was functioning at one point. If you are using Windows, Right click on my computer and click "Manage" Then go to disk management? Does it see the drive at all. If so, has a letter been assigned? It is possible that the operating system will show the drive even if it can't read the data. Look to see what file system and how it sees the disk having been partitioned. It is possible that your partition table has been corrupted. This can possibly be fixed using a tool like disk doctor or fdisk.

If, on the other hand, the drive is also making funny noises, you may have a mechanical failure on the drive.
