SOURCE: protable drive blinks as trying to read a file but wont connect

Nicholas, you might want to try plugging it into your computer (with light blinking) and restart your PC with it still plugged in, just ot see if your PC recognizes the drive on start up. Otherwise, I would try some -hard drive utility- software to see if it can be 'unlocked' or recovered. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: my laptop with windows 7


click start control panel administrive tools ,computer management ,device manager look through all of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark ! or red x
right click to reinstall drivers or
if you can see your usb but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver
sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable,
just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again,

check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems also make sure the computers Ram and Cmos battery are securely seated
if this fails to fix the problem

you might have to install a usb 2 or 3 card they are cheap and easy to install you can buy these on Ebay very cheap if this solution does not work and you might need one
hope this helps

FAT32 was the file type used for the early Windows operating systems. With the release of Windows NT and XP it switched to NTFS file system. FAT32 is still used however to transfer data between Mac and PC. The downside of FAT32 is the files read slower and file size cannot exceed 4GB. If you do not use a Mac I would suggest using the Disk Management utility in Control Panel under Computer Management to convert it to NTFS.

External hard drive won't let me transfer files from my Macbook.


Has it only just stopped working or has it been unable to work from the beginning? Are the files you are trying to transfer to the Hard disk already in use? I would recommend reformatting the hard drive. Formatting will put the hard drive back to it's original state. It will wipe all the data though, so make sure you back it up first. If that doesn't work then I'm not sure. Macs are not usually prone to viruses.

Are you trying to transfer files from your iPhone to another phone or vice versa?

iPhone Bluetooth does not support file transfer. The Bluetooth of this phone supports headset profile. Meaning, you could only hook up a headset and play a music or make a call.

But for file transfer, it will never work because it does not support it.

Picture transfer


hi confused123,

you don't need to be the most computer literate just to transfer pictures from your mobile to your PC or vice-versa..all you just need are: your USB cable and your V3i.

There are a lot of ways of transferring data but this one i am going to tell is the most easiest way.

From PC to Mobile Memory Card Only (Vice-Versa)
Using USB Cable
1. On your V3i, go to:
-> Settings
-> Connection
-> USB Settings
-> Default Connection
-> select Memory Card(if you have one)
2. Connect your mobile to your PC. Your PC should detect your mobile memory card. If Pop-up window appears asking for some actions you should take, you may cancel it or select the "Open Folder" list from the list box.
3. If no pop-up window appears, Open your Windows Explorer or the My Computer at your Desktop.
4. You must see your mobile memory card now from the list of icons. It will look something like a drive letter "E" or "F". If you have a single hard drive with no partitions, single CD or DVD drive, your hard drive is your letter "C", your CD or "DVD" is your letter "D" and your mobile memory card will be your letter "E".(weew! This is the reason why I don't take a teaching career).
5. Open that drive and you will see one folder inside named "Picture". Open it.
6. Inside that folder you should see your pictures from your mobile memory card. (Unless it is empty)
7. Your pictures is now ready for transfer.

Transferring files is easy as copy/cut-and-paste. You can transfer pictures from PC to your mobile as easy as that and vice-versa.

If this solution is inappropriate, please notify me and i'll try to make a revision of my "lesson-plans"!

I hope this would help!

Slow file transfer


What is your connectivity to the SAN? fiber or iSCSI? Have you checked the management tools to see if there are any errors on the data paths? If using iSCSI and the SAN and server are in the same network segment, make sure the default gateway is empty for the iSCSI connection. Look at the routes on the server to make sure the traffic is not leaving the subnet through a router and back to the SAN, and vice versa. If fiber then you'll have to use the tools given to check for errors. Ken
