Question about Computers & Internet
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:
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. )-:
