XPS-410 needs to have MCE 2005 Rollup two SP3 replaced by Windows 7 64 bit. Too many problems to list currently but will work limited programs


Not sure what you are trying to do. If you are trying to convert 32 bit to 64 bit Apps, try going to manufacturers website to look for drivers.
Win 7 will actually find the best drivers for your devices.

I am giving away my daughter's old computer and want to format the hard drive so everything is gone. I have tried to do so, but keep getting an error message that the volume is in use by another program,...


Hi,

You cannot format the hard drive while it's in use by the operating system itself.
The best way to reformat the drive is with the XP install CD to fully reinstall the operating system. That will wipe all the settings, programs pictures, documents etc.

If you don't have an XP CD you will need to manually go through the computer and delete everything that you don't want the next owner to see.

Alternatively, you can take out the hard drive and then pass it on and leave it for the next owners to get a hard drive and install an operating system.


Regards.

Use second hard drive


The Windows operaring system is on your 1st drive (ie C drive) and if you change it to a slave drive the computer won't work.
You need to set the jumper on the 2nd hard drive as a slave drive and leave the original drive as the master drive expecially if the 2nd drive is on the same IDE controller and cable as the 1st. hard drive.
It doesn't matter if the 2nd drive is set to master or slave if it is on the 2nd controller.
When you boot up you should see both hard drives and can copy files from one drive to another.

2nd hard drive wont show up correct


Dear,
!. Explore the Device Manager.
2. Select Disk Management. Check both drives are there.
3. If yes, then format the 2nd drive(you can make single or multiple partition) and give it a name. Now you can use it.

2nd HDD


Check Computer Management / Disk Management. Windows on Windows XP, Probably the Drive needs formatting first and partitioning before it will visible on My Computer. By Default the new Hard Drive is "Unpartitioned / Unallocated". So acess disk Management to format and partition the Hard Drive.

To access the computer management and disk management and create and partition under disk management, Check Videos for guide :

Maxtor OneTouch 4 Mini 250GB External Drive Does not show up on my computer


I have a Onetouch Mini 4, operating fine on two computers with Windows XP but couldn't get it working on Windows 7. I plugged it in and it would be recognized but a message would come up saying there were errors and to scan. Tried scanning and not scanning and couldn't get the drive to work. If I tried to open it would give me the "access denied". I couldn't get to a security tab from a folder as none of them were working.
It ended up that I wasn't listed as an owner nor had any permissions so I needed to be added to the device.

Here is what I did -

System, device manager, disk drives, right click on onetouch, properties, volumes, populate, the select on touch volume, properties, security, advanced, change permissions, add, typed in my user name - hit checked names (it fixed the format), then hit ok.



Then make sure you set the permissions for all the users.
