    Yes you can. But you have to specify the extra drive when installing applicatins. They usually ask for a location when installing. You cannot move your existing applications to the new drive.

Installing additional memory into my Jitterbug smartphone--How do I do it?


Per the Jitterbug Smartphone manual, on page 124:
https://www.greatcall.com/docs/default-source/pdfs/jitterbug-smart-user-guide.pdf

Adding more Memory Your Jitterbug features a microSD expansion slot to add up to an additional 32 GB of memory. The following is how to add more memory:

1. Remove the Back Cover using the Back Cover Release notch found on the bottom corner.
2. Locate the microSD expansion slot, which is below the External Speaker, and carefully insert the microSD card into the expansion slot until it clicks into place.
3. Replace the Back Cover.

IMPORTANT! Do not remove the SIM Card located opposite of the microSD expansion slot. Tampering of the SIM Card may cause issues with connectivity to the GreatCall network.

The installation and use of cooling fans in PCs is pretty straightforward once you understand the airflow layout and mechanical assembly.
You need to learn the necessary skills to make sure you are setting up your fans to direct the air where it will do the most good, as well as how to choose (and mount) the correct fan(s) for your situation.

Computer fans are manufactured in five distinct varieties: case fans, expansion-slot fans, hard-drive coolers, CPU fans and external drive-bay fans.
With case fans, there are several physical sizes that are measured in millimeters.
Another measurement the manufacturer will provide is the CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute) the fan is rated for.
As a general rule, the smaller the fan in size and the higher the CFM rating, the more noise it will create.
Before you purchase additional fans, open your case to see what kind of fans can be added.
The fan size must match the size of the opening in the case to be at peak efficiency.
You will need to establish you have expansion slots available if you want to add an expansion slot-style fan.
It is crucial you establish a pathway for the air being moved inside your case to follow.
As an example, having all the fans blowing air from the outside of the case to the inside is not as efficient as having fans on the front of the case blowing cool air in while the fans located in the back of the case are sucking out hot air.
It is recommended the best practice is to position a case fan in the front bottom of your case (bringing in cold air) and at least one fan mounted midway up the rear of your case (expelling hot air).
If possible, use two fans in the back to expel the hot air as a lot of it is being introduced by the CPU cooling fan.

The mounting of case fans is done by using four course-thread screws usually provided with the fan.
These screws are self-tapping and will be inserted through the hole in the case wall created for a case-fan screw, then screwed into the case-fan body mounting hole.
Make sure you use all four screws to hold the fan securely.

The installation of an expansion slot fan can target specific areas where heat is generated.
When mounting one of these fans, make sure the expansion slot fan is not in direct competition with the fan mounted to a video card.
Having the expansion slot fan blowing directly into the video card's fan, which is trying to blow out air, will defeat both of the fans' purpose.
Hard-drive coolers usually mount to the circuit board side of the hard drive and work to keep it cool.
Because of the location of most hard drives, there is very little disturbance from the air that is released from the hard-drive cooler to the airflow pattern mentioned earlier.
External drive bay fans can provide an enormous amount if airflow, assuming there is an external drive bay open.

How to set a toshiba hard drive to slave?


Power off the Toshiba laptop. Remove the power cord and the battery.

Turn the laptop upside down and remove the panel where the hard drive goes with a screwdriver.

Depending on the model of Toshiba laptop being worked on, this may include the entire bottom panel, a panel covering both hard drive slots or a panel covering the empty second slave hard drive slot.

Install the second hard drive by inserting it into the open slot.

Replace the opened cover.

Replace the battery and power cord.

Turn on the computer.

The second hard drive is automatically configured as the slave drive.

Depending on the operating system and previous status of the slave hard drive, it may need to be partitioned or formatted before being used by the operating system.


hope this helps

What is the different of microsoft 1997 to 2007


The main difference between MIcrosoft Office 1997 and 2007 is the addition of features that you may or may not need. If you are using 97 ok, great. If you are wondering if you should spend money on 2007, you should go to http://office.microsoft.com/en-ca/support/test-drive-the-2007-microsoft-office-release-HA010203120.aspx?CTT=1 and read up on it. The other key difference is that 2007 needs a more powerful computer with a bigger hard drive. How old is your current computer?

Sims and sims 2 on external hard drive?


It works great, I had to do the same thing. All you have to do is save it to the external drive. yes all the programs and expansions need to be on the external drive.

When it asks you if you want to put it on the C:/programs/simms as it always does, just change the "C" to what ever drive your external drive is. do this with each game.

You will me living like a simm in no time. Let me know how you did..

LifeDrive will not recognize SD expansion card


If the sdcard is the right type and size all you need to do is fully insert it into the slot. Its spring loaded so it will pop up if it isn't quite far enough in. It should only fit one way.

Generally the LD likes 2gb and smaller sdcards , it can use bigger such as 4gb but that's when you can be hit or miss. That depends on brand and sd version.If you search for a list of LD compatible sd cards you should find out what card to use or buy.

Hard Drive


Hi,

For some reason, I see a lot of the external USB hard drives having issues. Though I have an IDE to USB external enclosure as well as a 2.5 USB enclosure, I find it more assuring to use a secondary HD installed internally to the PC.

Alternately (and probably more to your requirement), if you intend to add more hard disk space but retain your original configuration, files and data (or simply same everything except bigger) then perhaps what you can do is clone your present HD to a bigger HD and swap when done. There are many programs available for this purpose. An example is Acronis True Image. Alternately, you can do a Google for hard drive cloning software.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
