Question about Computers & Internet
I have put some avi files on my usb strick and tried to watch them on my tv but it says it does not support the file. Ithen converted the avi files to video and it still says it cant support then.. so the I converted them to mp4 and same again.. so then I converted them again to MPEG and it only let me play them for 3 mins. please can you help as its getting me down and I want to watch my films on my new tv .. many thanx
This tv will not play , wmv, avi, mov, mkv, or divx, the hitachi uses the xvid codec only, which means your video file types must be mp4, and not the h.264 mp4 either....but true mp4 video, if you have a connected usb drive full of movies, best bet is to download "youtube downloader" (free off the internet) install it to your PC, and use the convert feature to convert your movies to the ipad video mp4 setting, with the "same as original " quality ticked....and convert all your movie files to the xvid codec your tv wants, youtube downloader can convert anything, any filetype even flash. trust me this works 100% i know, i have the Tv, and i do know about codecs and scaling..and metadata....do this will be your best bet guys !!! happy viewing

Does it happen to be a Maxtor II? I had a very similar issue with my external and it devastated my backup program.
If the power light is coming on but not being recognized by the OS, your first step is (as you said) trying a different USB/Firewire cable. If that does not work and you don't care about voiding an expired warranty, you can open the case and remove the HDD. It will have several screws in the back; just undo them and slide it out. Try hooking the HDD up through IDE (or SATA if equipped) and after powering up, go into BIOS and see if it shows up on the IDE(SATA) list. If it doesn't, then as far as I know, your only other option is to try a pricey data recovery service.

Simplest solution: back up the data on the drive and repartition it (which will wipe it). Otherwise it sounds like it could be a problem with the file tree or structure of the drive, the configuration files could be corrupt, some program could have stored temporary files in a hidden place that cannot be deleted without making the program delete them, etc. If you are on a mac, spotlight Disk Utility and use it to repartition. If you are on a PC use the search thing from the start menu and find a program called disk management (or something similar to that, you'll know it when you see it.) external drives are annoying. i kick mine into the wall periodically for good measure.

If no physical switch, then check the software that came with. Some sticks have a software component that recognizes when you plug the stick in and gives you options for viewing and launching applications from the stick. There may be controls you can use to change the write protect.
If not, or you can also try, opening a view to the stick from Windows Explorer and just delete files from there as you would from any drive. Windows will prompt you to confirm delete. I wouldn't delete any auto-load or setup apps that would be used to connect to another computer.

the whole USB flash disk surface will be fully erased.
Therefore, data restoration will be impossible after using this utility!)

H there this mean a file is corrupt and you need to repair the damage file,you can do this by using a recovery disk for the computer if you have one.If you don't do not have a recovery disk for the computer you can use the operating system disk to repair it,please follow these steps:insert the operating system disk into the drive,restart the computer, press F12 and choose boot from CD save and exit.As the computer loading it will ask you to press any key to boot from CD, press any key, a blue screen will appear while its loading, when it get to the first set of options you will press enter to continue. when it get to the second set of options it will ask you to install the operating system or repair it, choose repair and follow the steps from there, this should solve the problem. But should backup your files before doing this even though no file will be lost but its better to backup just in case something goes wrong.
