SOURCE: Unable to connect USB hard drive to KD-AVX33

I have a Lacy 160G laptop external HDD attached to it..It works fine... The format of the HDD should also be FAT32. The structure of the files should be Album/MP3

For a HDD that big look for software on the internet which can convert it from NTSF to FAT32 it should work perfectly.

The only thing I haven't been able to get working is videofiles...on the same HDD. Anyone got an idea?

SOURCE: export via USB to hard drive

The USB ports on this unit are non-functional unless you hack it. There are several methods of doing so, but the easiest is probably to purchase an upgrade kit from dvrupgrade.com. You can either purchase a replacement hard drive, or software to do it yourself.

After you do this, the USB ports can be used to connect a network device, and you can use different software programs to export and import programming. You will also have other features you normally wouldn't have on the stock unit. Good resources on this topic are tivocommunity.com and dealdatabase.com.

SOURCE: I want to load video from my DirecTV DVR onto USB and vice versa.

From my experience, this isn't possible due to copyright reasons.  If your DVR has a USB port, it is usually meant for flashing the BIOS with updates by a technician.  Since this is a rented DVR from DirecTV, they probably have the USB port disabled since they can update the DVR from their end.  All you can do is search Google using your model number since we would be liable for guiding you how to "hack" into DirecTV's property.

We have a Windows XP system on a 14 year old Dell computer.. We are desirous of transferring data from that system to a new computor. My husband purchased an Acomdata Hi-speed 2.0 external hard drive...


If both your Dell and the hard drive have USB ports you may be able to download directly. Other wise you may purchase an external drive and load the data to that. The external drive almost certainly will connect by USB.

How do I download the info from a tower to a laptop


There are three ways that you can download information from your tower to your laptop.
1. The first way is to copy all of the items that you want to transfer in your email and then send via email. Open on the laptop and drag all items to a folder or the desktop.
2. Buy an external hard drive. Connect it to the desktop PC through a USB port. Transfer all of your data there and then unplug the USB from the desktop and plug it into your laptop. Go to my computer and then click the drive that you just plugged in and then all of your information will be there for you to transfer to your laptop.
3. The final way to do this would be to plug a simple USB into the tower and then transfer for all the information there and then plug it into the laptop and click my computer. And click on the USB which is usually named travel drive and all of your information will be there to access from your laptop.

DX7440 cannot get device information


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

Adding to ubuntu desktop


it could be that power isn't sufficient on the USB connection. you might need to plug in your AC adapter.

Also this drive has both FireWire and USB ports on it.

To get it working, make sure that the AC adapter is supplying power, and that USB is connected correctly, then re-boot.

Ubuntu should recognize the drive.

Command line tools that may help are

lsusb

this shows which devices are connected via USB to your computer.

dmesg | less

will help you look for the drive's identification and recognition by the computer, providing information such as vendor strings, capacity, and device assignments.

Good luck.

What is a portable USB (2.0) hard drive ??? Is it just a big USB ? Please tell me everything about USB (2.0) hard drive.


First of all, USB is an interface, that can be used for various computer peripherals, like a mouse, keyboard, printer, storage devices etc. Additionally, the USB interface is able to deliver some power (5V 500mA), which is quite enough for many devices. USB 2.0 is the newer, faster version of the original USB 1.1 specification.
Now for USB storage. Basically there are two types on the market. First are Flash (solid-state devices), usually in form of a "dongle" (called pendrive, stick). They store information in semiconductor memory. Second are hard disks, just like the ones installed in desktop and laptop computers - they store information on magnetic media.
Hard disks in a small enclosure, equipped with special interface, that enables them to be connected via the USB interface, are "portable USB hard drives". Many of them can be powered from the USB socket alone, some need an additional power supply.
With today's technology, hard disks can have 10-20 times larger capacity than flash devices, so they are still indispensable when you want to store a lot of big files (like pictures, movies etc), or back up the contents of your computer's hard drive as a safety copy.

My fujitsu laptop recently had a new hard drive installed in it ,but i want to transfer the data i have on the old hard drive that was removed from laptop to my new hard drive. I bought the all in one...


The Coolmax adapter is an USB hard drive adapter that can connect various types hard drives to your computer. This is used for testing and and transferring data to and from hard drives connected to the computer via the computer's USB port.

This Coolmax USB hard disk adapter can connect a 2.5-, 3.5- and 5.25-inch IDE or SATA hard disk to a PC. The black adapter box connects the hard disk, while the secondary power plug/adapter powers the drive. In the case of smaller notebook or SATA disks, the power cable is plugged directly into the adapter (as opposed to straight into the IDE hard disk).
The red USB cable, meanwhile, can be used to power hard disks directly from the host PC's bus via another USB port.

Connect the hard drive to the adapter as detailed above, power up your computer and plug the Coolmax USB cable into the conputer's USB port. The computer will detect and see this as an external drive, most likely as a E drive (the next drive letter that is available). Click on this drive and open to open the folder/s where your data is stored then select the folder/s and/or data and copy them, then open the hard drive on the computer and paste the folder/s and/or files onto the new hard drive.

POWER SUPPLY


Another option you have, would be to purchase an external enclosure for the hard drive and it would then connect via USB cable. These enclosures are usually about $30, and the device works quite well as an external drive as long as you have USB 2.0

This would enable you to access all the information on that drive *and* you could use it as a backup drive for your main hard drive as well.

Good Luck!
