Philips Mobile Storage Device SPD5300CC/96K Incompatible XP?

I bought this mobile storage device on the recommendation of a friend as I would be able to use my extra HDD as external backup... i thought it was a great idea...

However, when I connect it all up and put it in my USB slot, XP won't recognise anything there. I cannot connect to the drive? Are there missing drivers or something? My USB works just fine, my brother's proper external HDD works without any problems... I believe this is a problem that others have found... anything I can do?

After consultation with the shop which sold the drive, they helped me work out the problem. Which was that the drive I was attempting to use in the Philips enclosure, had an OS on it, which was conflicting with the OS on my current HDD. So, that particular drive will need to be connected another way to access the information.

How do I permantly delete pictures from the Gallery on my Virgin Mobile Event phone?

Hello Jody,
Are you currently using a Micro SD storage card in your Virgin Mobile device? If so, you may have to enter your internal setting and delete the photos from the storage device.
If not, you may attempt to delete the photos and then perform a hard reset on your Virgin Mobile device, either by removing the battery for ten seconds or pressings and holding the power/lock screen button until the device powers off.

I wanna convert my photo menc format to jpeg format what should i do?

Actually, .menc file (Microsoft windows mobile encrypted file) isn't a real file type extension, it only indicates that the file is encrypted on a Storage Device (windows mobile) where Storage Card Encryption feature is installed.... They can't be directly converted to Jpeg. You have to remove the encryption and then restore them to normal jpeg file. First transfer the files to the computer, and then disable the Storage Card Encryption from the Mobile/Device and again transfer back to the device.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

try a hard reset of your phone:

this will get you back to factory default and take you through wizard for setup.

To perform a hard reset
1. Remove the back cover.
2. Press and hold the SOFT KEYS, then use the stylus to press the RESET
button located below the battery compartment.
3. Release the RESET button, but
continue pressing the SOFT
KEYS until you see this message
on the screen:
4. Release the SOFT KEYS, then
press TALK/SEND to perform the
hard reset, or press any other
button to cancel the reset.
This operation will delete
all your personal data,
and reset all settings
to manufacturer default.
Press Send to restore
manufacturer default, or
press other keys to cancel.
Clear Storage
Another way of clearing the device storage and reset all settings back to
factory default settings is to use the Clear Storage feature. You will lose all
your data and files on the device storage when you use Clear Storage, so
make sure to do a backup first.
Important If Encrypt files placed on storage cards is or was enabled before, then
backup all files from the storage card before using Clear Storage, hard
reset or updating the ROM system software. Otherwise you will no longer
be able to access the encrypted files on the storage card. Use ActiveSync
or Windows Mobile Device Center to transfer files between your storage
card and computer. After the procedure, copy your files back to the
storage card.
1. Tap Start > Settings > System tab > Clear Storage.
2. Enter “1234”, then tap Yes.
Your device restarts and displays the Quick Setup Wizard
