To save your data from a bad Wd Ebook you need to download UBUNTU and burn it to a cd. Boot from the cd. Do not install Ubuntu just click try it out. When it loads turn on your Ebook and it should appear on the desktop. If not click the places tab on top and find it there. Right click the EBook and mount it. Now you have access to all the data on the ebook. If you have enough space n your cpu hard drive save it there, if not you will need another source large enough to copy the data to.. I have used this method to save many hard drives, flash drive and other unreadable media. if the drive is totally toast you are out of luck but this method works most of the time. Any questions drop me an email.

Access Denied Error on external hardrive


You don't have rights to the folder. Right click the folder --> Select Properties --> Security --> Advanced --> Owner and then change the owner to your user. Here are some instructions from Microsoft for taking ownership. Once you own the folder then you can do whatever you want.

Cannot install Pinnacle Studio 12 Video editting


Make sure to back up the registry before modifying it. For more information about the registry, refer to your Windows documentation or contact Microsoft.
  1. Choose Start > Run.
  2. In the Open box type Regedit and click OK.
  3. Browse to the following keys:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders
  4. Verify the drive, path, or variables are valid for each of the keys.
    For each of these keys on the right hand side there is a Data column. Each entry that refers to a variable or a path name - each value needs to refer to a valid drive, path or variable. These path names may be unique to your individual PC - to restore the defaults it may be necessary to examine a known working machine, or contact a Microsoft Windows technician for additional help.

How do I download my pictures to my computer? I have a Kodak Easy Share M380


If you have the USB cable that came with the camera just plug it in to the computer (and to the camera) then turn the camera on.
1- The "autoplay" window should pop-up then click on "open folder to view files" and then open any folders within until you find your pics.
2- If option 1 didnt work then go to your computer and open the "my computer" folder within that folder should be a removable disc drive E or F, open the drive and you'll see another folder open it up and look for your pics.
3- Download the software from the Kodak website.

This is because it is in Powerpoint Presentation format. You will need Microsoft Powerpoint to edit it.

Alternatively, if don't have Microsoft Powerpoint (or don't want to spend the huge amount of money it costs) you can download Open Office and edit it for free. Here is the link to Open Office: http://download.openoffice.org/index.html

What is run time error '-2147467259(80004005)' how i solved it rewati nadan


"The Microsoft Jet Database Engine cannot open the file '(unknown)'"There are several causes for this error message:
  • The account that Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS) is using (which is usually IUSR) does not have the correct Windows NT permissions for a file-based database or for the folder that contains the file.
  • The file and the data source name are marked as Exclusive.
  • Another process or user has the Access database open.
  • The error may be caused by a delegation issue. Check the authentication method (Basic versus NTLM), if any. If the connection string uses the Universal Naming Convention (UNC), try to use Basic authentication or an absolute path such as C:\Mydata\Data.mdb. This problem can occur even if the UNC points to a resource that is local to the IIS computer.
  • This error may also occur when you access a local Microsoft Access database that is linked to a table where the table is in an Access database on a network server.
Resolution
  • Check the permissions on the file and the folder. Make sure that you have the ability to create and/or destroy any temporary files. Temporary files are usually created in the same folder as the database, but the file may also be created in other folders such as the WINNT folder. For additional information about how to identify which folder does not have the correct permissions and how to configure temporary files, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 253604 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/253604/ ) Microsoft Access 97 database connectivity fails in Active Server Pages If you use a network path to the database (UNC or mapped drive), check the permissions on the share, the file, and the folder.
  • Verify that the file and the data source name (DSN) are not marked as Exclusive.
  • The "other user" may be Microsoft Visual InterDev. Close any Visual InterDev projects that contain a data connection to the database.
  • Simplify. Use a System DSN that uses a local drive letter. If necessary, move the database to the local drive to test.
  • Follow the instructions in the following article to work around this problem: 189408 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/189408/ ) FIX: ASP fails to access network files under IIS 4.0 and IIS 5.0

SanDisk Cruzer® Micro 2GB WON'T Download pictures


Try using Windows Explorer to copy them. I'll try to help you out.

When you plug the drive in and a window pops up, select "Open folder to view files using Windows Explorer". If they show up in the right pane as thumbnails, select View>Details from the menu at the top.

Left click the top picture, then scroll all the way down to the bottom. Press and hold the <Shift> key, then left click the last picture in the list. This should highlight all the files.

Right click on any of the pics, then go down to "Send to...". This opens several choices, but you probably should choose "My Documents". This will copy all of your pics into your My Documents folder.

Once you get them there you can move them to your My Pictures folder in much the same way.
