Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition

1 Answer

I have a 1GB file that is corrupted and I want to fix it?

I want to save the file but i cant move, copy, or compress it because the "file is corrupted or unreadable". I found the problem when attempting a defrag job. whats the best way to save the file?
Its on an usb external HD. Its an archival file from a DVD build job. its a .VOB file.
is this just the first file of many that are corrupted, are there more?
i tried renaming it. (while leaving myself a .txt to explain it later if i ever need to access it in the future)

Adobe illustrator file corruption. What to do?


Hi,
First check your illustrator. Could it open other files or not? Try to create new file and save it, then open again.
Try to open your corrupted file on another PC. Then if it doesn't work, it means that your file is corrupted. So you should try to restore it by Recovery Toolbox for Illustrator . You can download it here http://www.illustrator.recoverytoolbox.com/
Also you can read here about corrupted file recovery: http://www.filerepairforum.com/forum/adobe/adobe-aa/illustrator/513-adobe-illustrator-file-corruption

What does this falt code mean? 8002291A and how do i fix it?


Trophy Error 8002291AIt thinks that you are using a save file that no longer matches the trophy data. Essentially your save file or the trophy data is corrupted and no longer accessible. Usually, you just need to wait for the game to update.

If that doesn't work.

Easy fix, delete your saves...hard fix, try and fix the corrupted data.

Memory card corrupted , cant retrieve saved games


Try a "Reformat" or your memory card. here's how.
I recommend that you do this every so often regardless, and particularly when you first buy a memory stick. Reformat it, on the Sony PSP. So that anything added by the memory stick manufacturer is removed, along with any hidden files you might have accidentally added.
You can format any size Memory Stick Duo in the Sony PSP by doing this:
  1. Push the little HOME button on the bottom left of the face of the unit.
  2. Use the arrow keys to move to the SETTINGS area, then move the up and down keys until you get to System Settings.
  3. Once you are there, click on the "X" button and scroll up and down as needed to find Format Memory Stick. Click on "X" again to select that option.
  4. The Sony PSP will now confirm that you want to reformat the memory stick (which removes every file and game save thereon, of course): choose yes and it'll format in just a few seconds.
Now you have a pristine new Memory Stick to work with and should have no problems with music, photos or other material you might wish to copy onto your PSP.

Ntoskrnl.exe still on computer when i have copied a new version


Reboot from the CD-ROM, and select "repair", and, at a command-line prompt, enter: CHKDSK C: /F

Windows will shutdown, and reboot, and run the "check-disk".
This may fix the "corrupt" problem.

DENPA WAV FILES CORRUPTED!!


Hi Guys,
I have the same corrupted file, but you can recover it by using the GoldWave software. Just type"Goldwave" in google, follow the link and download the software, install it. From that software open the corrupted file, and then save it as a new copy. ( It will fix the problem when opening the file, where you can see it). They try to play the new saved file, shld be fine.
all the best.
