Windows-based PCs b> Plug your iPod into your computer to open iTunes; if it doesn't automatically open, open it manually. A window will pop up on your computer asking you if you want to sync the contents of your iPod with the contents of your iTunes library. Click cancel. In the iTunes source list, choose the iPod, and make sure that you have selected the Summary tab in iTunes' main window. Open up the My Computer icon from either your desktop or the Start menu, and select your iPod from the window. In the My Computer window, open up the Tool menu and click on Folder Options. This will open up another window. Choose the View tab, and find the heading for Hidden Files and Folders. Click on the button that says "Show Hidden Files and Folders," then click the "Apply" button at the bottom of the Window. Close the Folder Options window. Find the iPod's icon on the desktop and double-click it. This will open more folders in the iPod window. Find the folder called iPod_control and double-click it. Now you will have a number of folders to choose from. Locate the music folder, and drag it to the main desktop so that it's copied to your computer. When the Music folder is on the desktop, right-click on it. From the window that appears, choose "Properties." In the Attributes area of the General tab, uncheck the Hidden option, and then click "Apply." A window will appear that will ask you to confirm the attribute changes. Make sure the box next to the Apply Changes to this Folder, Subfolders, and Files option is checked, and then click OK. Drag the folder and its contents into the iTunes library.

SOURCE: Freecom Hard drive

I have a 500 GB external HDD from freecom, wich was working fine in the beginning.
It was fat32 pre-formatted when i bought it, so i formatted it to NTFS becouse i want to put big files on it. When I connect it to my computer, everything goes allright. But when I start a program such as:
Azureus (torrents)
Defregmantation
Virusscan
etc.

wich are using my drive, it just *shuts down*. Well, it's not shutting down actualy. The light indicator goes off, and windows can't acces it anymore (it's still in your list of my computer though) , but the drive inside is still running. When I hit the switch to shut it off, it goes off, you can hear the drive stop spinning, then you get all kind a errors in windows with drive write errors (becouse i shut it down ofcourse). This is not happening when i connect it to a hub. i connected it to a 2.0 hub (wich is not 2.0 full speed ofcourse, but it's faster then 1.0) and then it's not *shutting down*, but it's very slow ofcourse.

Please help me out, becouse I can't do anything with it right now, unless under low speed. )-:

I am trying to transfer all my photos from my old freecom external HD to a new external HD, but the Freecom keeps switching itself off mid transfer, every few minutes. I'm worried I'm going to


sounds like a faulty drive, afraid without sending it off only way you will be able to get info off is by transfering it bit by bit,
best u use cut files at least u dont have to keep copying same files over and over that way

Transfer photos


I've never heard of that. Try copying the picture files to an external drive or a usb flash drive. Then you can put them anywhere you like on another computer requardless of whether it's 32bit or 64 bit.

How do I transfer pics from my pc back on to my fuji S5700 camera


You'll need to use a card reader. Once the memory card is in a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB), the card will appear to the computer as another external hard drive, and you can copy files to it the same way you usually copy files.
Be aware that if you've done any editing of the pics (opening a pic in a photo editor and then saving it without doing anything counts as editing), the camera most likely won't display it.

If you've using windows Xp before then you've plug it in a windows 7 Operating system, it means your hard disc have no problem the operating system of your PC is different than before. Try to plug it in a windows Xp operating system then recover it in there then format it in a windows 7 operating system then, the windows Xp and windows 7 try to make a network place in the connection then share the hard disc files that you've recovered then copy and paste it in the newly format hard drive that formated in a windows 7 operating system.

Freecom external 160gb back up - laptop not recognising back-up drive. Light is on on the drive, but that's all. Help please.


All things considered, I would use a different usb cable to attach the device to your laptop and try updating chip set drivers. The north bridge controls usb hub as well as video.

EverestHome is a software I use to ID the north and south bridge chip sets, the cpu, board, bios etc.

If the external is not detected on other machines then it could be a problem with the external drive chips or connectors.

Secured and compressed jpgs will not open


Hello patsyzara

(01) 1st, for now (as a precaution against data loss), please, don't add or delete anything to or from that external HDD (hard disk drive)

(02) Just to make sure, the photos and not just a catalog of the photos were originally stored onto the external HDD, yes?

(03) Do you still have access to the computer where you originally had the external HDD connected at the time you encrypted the files (photos)?

Even if the protected files were on the same external HDD that you are using now, the protection software is possibly associated w/ the computer on which the files were fist stored.

(04) Please, tell us exactly what mechanism (the name of the software, etc) you used to originally encrypt these files.

(05) Did you recall if you used software that came w/ the external HDD to encrypt your files?

(06) Please, tell us the the following:

(A) The operating system that was installed on the previous computer you're referring to. (Windows 2000, Windows XP, etc.)

(B) The model number of your Freecom external HDD. (look for a sticker or any markings on the case).

(C) The name of the encryption software if you can remember.

(06) If you still have access to the original computer, connect the external hard disk to that computer and tell us if you can see the files again.

(07) If you can, decrypt the files and then transfer the external HDD to the new computer.

If you need assistance w/ ANY of these steps or have any questions at all, comments, observations, etc., please, post back here w/ them. We will continue to work w/ you on this issue until it is resolved or we reach an impasse.


Thank you

Freecom hard drive problem?


Unless you "GHOST" or "CLONE" the programsd over to the harddrive, instead of just copy and paste, they will not open. What you will have to do mo0re than likely is remove the installation files through control panel and reinstall the program onto the external harddrive.
