    When you connect the flash drive to the USB port on the computer do you get a popup message saying Found New Hardware on the taskbar by the system clock?

    If you do then let it finish installing it and then look in My computer if it's there.

Pen drive access denied


USB ports and devices make connecting to another computing device convenient.
USB technology has been around since 1996, and is a feature found on most modern computing devices.
If your device is denied access to one of its USB features, do some troubleshooting to isolate and resolve the problem.
Viruses
Some computers come with a security feature that automatically denies access to a USB device, such as a flash drive, if harmful content is detected.
Installing an anti-virus software application and regularly scanning the computer and any connected USB devices can help you avoid experiencing denied access to a USB device.
Avoid opening USB flash drive files that you cannot identify or do not recognize, as these types of files are how viruses find their way onto unprotected computers.

Incompatibility

Inserting an incompatible device into your computer's USB port can also cause you to be denied access to your device's USB features.
For instance, if your computer supports USB 1.0 technology and you insert a USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 connector, the computer can experience interfacing problems that may cause a "USB access denied" prompt or situation.
If other USB devices begin to malfunction after inserting an incompatible USB cable into your computer, turning the computer off and back on again may resolve the situation.



Formatting
USB flash drives, also known as pen or thumb drives, are among the most common types of USB devices used in conjunction with computers.
Most USB flash drives are formatted using one of three types of formatting methods: FAT16, FAT32 or NTFS.
If you've formatted a USB flash drive using one method, used it on the computer and then reformatted the drive using another method, you can be denied access to the flash drive through the computer's USB port.
Wiping the flash drive clean and reformatting it again can resolve this type of problem.

Considerations

Many computer accessories, including printers and pointing devices, connect through the machine's USB ports and can interface interchangeably with multiple computing devices.
This feature increases the risks of picking up viruses and experiencing unauthorized reformatting. Limiting the amount of computers your USB devices accesses can help you avoid these situations.
Damaged USB cables can also make it impossible to access USB devices when they are connected to your computer.
USB cable damage usually occurs at the points where the cable and its connectors meet. Replace any damaged USB cables.
You have to be the computers administrator to change any values on any hard drive on your computer.
Click start control panel user accounts on the users tab click the name of the computer Administrator you must have full control.
Click start click to open on my computer you should see your usb drive could be E: or something right click select properties there will be an array of options
select the sharing tab option then advanced sharing make sure you have a tick in the share this folder box then click permissions make sure you have all 3 boxes ticked full control changes and read in windows 7
If you are running a Windows XP OS then you might be able to:
Click start right click on my computer select open
Right click the icon of your Flash Drive (It should be F:/ or something)
Click Properties in the menu that comes up
Click the Sharing tab
Click permissions
And finally, click Allow next to Full Control.

So So Happy USB flash drive won't install onto windows xp


Format the flash drive without using the executable installation program on the flash drive.

Insert new flash drive, do not let anything auto-run. View the drive in the file explorer. Right click on the drive and choose Format in XP to let XP do a full format (not a quick format) of the drive. This will ensure that the drive works on XP... it will then also be accessible on a newer system.

XP may also not be able to work with flash drives over 32GB, or will only give you access to the first 16 or 32GB.

Upon startup before anything else happens (except asking me if I want to press f2 for setup) my aspire one netbook says: For Atheros PCIE Ethernet Controller... v1.0.0.5(1/22/09) check cable...


This means you should install an Operating System.
If your notebook doesn't have a dvd drive you can install the Operating System with an external drive (dvd, USB flash drive or hard drive). and press F12 when it starts to select the booting device.
Follow the link below to find out how to create a USB flash drive bootable (also works on hard drives):

Hello, you relly need to reformat it you can use an os installer suach as linux or windows using a usb flash drive, but you have to transfer the installer cd to the usb drive by using the wintoflash application. Once you've done that now you can reformat and install os in your notebook using your usb flash drive.

Aspire Notebook 5735-4774 won't display on external CRT monitor


If the video chip on the Aspire motherboard is OK then the image on the external monitor would be OK. If not then the video/motherboard is faulty.
To gain access to data on the hard disk, remove the hard disk and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. The computer will see this as an external hard drive.
Alternately -
You can put the hard drive in an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an external USB hard drive.

This note book does not have a disc drive, so how can I use any kind of restore?


Aspire One's Have a Recovery Partition that's accessable by using the ALT and F10 Keys Upon Booting...

Try it several times if not sucessful the first time ... Though your model might not have a recovery partition, in that case you will need to either reinstall windows using A USB Flash Drive Or by using an external CD/DVD Drive

Cant get into the network center on my acer aspire 1 ,


If this is an aspire One with linpus lite linux,

The network center disappearing is an issue with the linux update server that seems to corrupt the OS.

The solution unfortunately is to reload the OS from the recovery disk.

The aspire ONE does not come with an ODD so you will need to use the disk on a unit that has an ODD to make the recovery USB flash drive.

You will need a USB flash drive that has at least 2GB of storage, a computer with an ODD, and the linpus recovery disk that came ywith your unit.
1. Boot to the linpus disk, one of the options should be to make a recovery USB drive, make sure that no important data is on this USB drive as it WILL be formatted and erased.
2. Follow the on-screen instructions and then insert the recovery flash drive in to the USB slot of the Aspire ONE.
3. Re-start the Aspire ONE and press F2 to go in to setup.
4. Change the boot order to boot from "USB HDD" and press F10 to save and exit.
5. Unit will reboot and recovery will start.

Acer aspire 1 will not load XP


If this a new drive you need to prepare it using a hard drive utility before windows will recognise it. The drive manufacturer may provide this for you. Maxblast is one such program as is Datalifeguard from Western Digital.

Acer Aspire 5507Z Notebook *ACTUAL NOTEBOOK


Sounds like the hard drive could be bad, or maybe it is trying to boot from the cd drive. The "Check media cable" is the error that bugs me. In your bios, you can usually have the computer boot from a CD Rom drive, or a usb flash drive, etc.. instead of the hard drive where the operating system is. Make that :

1. there is no cd in the cd drive.
2. When the laptop boots, don't touch the keyboard while booting.
Try that and lets see if it will boot into the cd drive.
