Nldtr missing


Am I right in thinking you mean NTLDR and not NLDTR? If so here is the fix.

To fix the error on startup of NTLDR is missing in Win XP you should follow the steps below using a full version Win XP CD and the Recovery Console.
Insert the Windows CD and start the computer making sure the computer boots to the CD first.
When the Welcome to Setup screen appears, press R. (this may take a while to load)
Type a number corresponding to the Windows installation you wish to repair (usually 1) and press Enter. When prompted, type the administrator password and press Enter. (if no password was entered on you system then just press enter)
From the command prompt you want to copy NTLDR and NTDETECT.COM from the i386 folder of the CD to the root folder of the hard drive. This is much easier than it sounds and can be done by typing the commands below.
In the examples below C: is presumed to be your hard drive and D: is presumed to be your CD drive. You will need to change the drive letters to your own if you have more than one drive. ( if you are having problems entering \ then try pressing the # key to see if that works)
Type these 2 commands exactly and press enter after each one.
COPY D:\I386\NTLDR C:\
COPY D:\I386\NTDETECT.COM C:\
Now remove the Windows XP CD from the drive and restart the computer and your computer should now start normally.

I received a free 2 GB SD Flash Stick from Micro Center without any directions as to how to use it and/or if I have to format/program my computer. Thank you.


Typically, if you have a USB flash stick and are using windows, it works as a plug and play device. IE - when you plug it it - windows will automaticall detect it and you will see - on the tray by your clock in lower right hand of screen - something along the lines of "new hardware detected" then to actually use the stick - go into my computer - and you should see a new drive listed under "Drives with Removable storage" this will be the drive where you save thing that you want saved on the stick.

hope this helps.

What files do I copy???????????


I'm assuming you are using the memory stick for extra storage to free up space on your hard drive (or your C drive) or as a drive to back your files up on. A memory stick, when used the way you are describing, is nothing more than another drive to store stuff on (think of it as a smaller version of your C Drive) You can put any file type you want on it and then see it again as long as it is inserted in your computer.

If the purpose of the memory stick is to provide extra storage in order to free up space on your hard drive then yes, you will need to delete whatever you drag on to it from your hard drive. Otherwise the files will remain on your C drive/hard drive and continue to take up space. If you are only using the memory stick as a "just in case" backup drive, I would not delete them the files you copy from the source drive.

Let me caution you about doing this however, memory sticks are classified as "removable media". Media like this can sometimes be unstable or undependable. A more stable way to backup or store files long term is to copy them to a CD or DVD-ROM. In order to do that you need a CD or DVD writer. Most newer (within the last 3 years) computers come standard with this technology.
You may or may not have that capability.

The Itunes question is a whole 'nother line of answers. You can use your memory stick to back up your Itunes library but it will only be a back up. Because your Itunes software is linked to the files on your hard drive, all of your music files would still have to reside on your hard drive where they were originally.

If you want your Itunes library to reside solely on your memory stick (which in my opinion is not a good idea due to the instability of the memory stick) you would need to reconfigure Itunes to make it point to the library on your memory stick. It's definitely doable but gets kinda sticky in the transfer. Let me know if this is what you want to do with it and I can walk you through that.

Hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions and good luck!

I/O DEVICE ERROR


I/0 error, IS AN INPUT/OUTPUT ERROR. this device is formatted as FAT32 as it is usable on all OS. however if you formatt it to the faster, safer NTFS format, it will only work on 2000, XP etc. so firstly is the device being "seen" by windows? as in does the plug and play connect device sound play? or the green arrow and card icon appera in the bottom left corner? if it doesnt your computer may not have a mass storage device installed, or a driver for it, go into your device managment and click rescan plug and play and if nothing comes up click, view hidden devices, and select the correct driver, by either manually selecting the mass storage or Hdd driver or letting windows find one on the net or locally. if this still doesnt fix things, be aware that external HDD us ealot of power, and some USB ports dont give enough power for the HDD to wind up enough speed to operate. try using a different port, 2.0 not 1.0 as i have found power draw issues with 1.0 USB and/or get a shorter, foot long or less cable. good luck.
