What is the safe removal procedure for the Free Agent Go Flex external hard drive


Click on the icon with the green arrow in the notification area (next to the clock) a small notification about Safely Disconnect will appear listing all the connected devices - click on the entry corresponding to your GoFlex and wait for the message telling you that is safe to do it or, in some cases the icon will blink (that depends on how your pc is set up). Once that is done just take out the USB cable.

How do I operate my Philips go-gear 8GB mp4 player. Serial # RK1H1051038306, model # 06095819004. I can't make out the users manual. What I am tying to do is, transfer my class lectures, recorded in mp3...


Hi,

I have a Philips go-gear 4GB player. There is no charger included. To charge the player, use any firewire/USB cable and connect the device to a PC or laptop. While the device is charging, the battery icon is blinking. When it is fully charged, the battery icon will stay static.

To copy to the device, open Windows explorer. Look for the Philips Go-gear folder icon. Open the Philips folder and Copy you music files inside the device's my music folder. If the file is video, copy the file in the my video folder.

Once the device is fully charged, disconnect the device by right-clicking on the Safely Remove Hardware icon on lower right portion of your PC screen. Select Safely remove hardware then Choose the philips go-gear device to eject.

Power on the device then use the navigation keys to select the files you like to play. Click ok or the play button.

I cannot copy the pictures from my Sony Cybershot to my pc; A few days ago my pc crashed and I lost the CD-ROM to install picture package menu. what do to now ?


Hello, you can recover the pictures directly from your camera without needing cables if you have a card reader.

If you do have a card reader, then:
  1. Open your camera's memory slot
  2. Remove memory card
  3. Insert memory card in your PC or laptop's memory card reader.
  4. The card will then appear on My PC exactly like any pendrive.
  5. After you're done copying photos, click over the system tray's "Safely remove Hardware" icon, and select the memory card.
  6. Wait until Windows prompts you that it's safe to remove the hardware.
  7. Put the memory card back on the camera.
Also, from here you can get the drivers for your camera

And, from here, you can order a new CD from Sony, but they will charge you for it.

Pen drive not showing in my explorer.


Its a common problem with the pendrive, in windows. some time it doesnot detect or not showing clearly that device. you have to check your pendrive manufacturer and driver details. and also check it out driver signing.

Do you have mapped network drives on your computer? If you have this may cause your problem. When you insert the PEN Drive into USB and the "safely remove hardware" icon appers try to right-click on it and choose "eject" or "remove" (don't remember :), then pull the PEN DRIVE from the USB and connect it again. Go to Windows Explorer and try to open all your mapped drives, then the content of your PEN DRIVE must be loaded into your Windows Explorer. This is happened sometimes, because PEN DRIVE try to assign the first free drive letter after your phisical drive letters, and if you have a mapped drive letter, the PEN DRIVE assign one of them.
