Question about Dane-Elec DaneElec 4GB USB Drive Copper Hard Drive

DaneElec 4GB suddenly stops working?!

My DaneElec 4GB USB stick was working fine on all the computers I used it on (all Macs, multiple eMacs running 10.4.11 and one MacBook running 10.4.11), and it suddenly stopped. It has a small green light that turns on when it is connected to the computer, and I can only make this light turn on by pulling back on the USB and holding it in a certain position. Even so, I can't make it work long enough to access any of the files on it. It is now not working on any computer. Any ideas?

Hello, Likely the saulders on the circuit board are broken. If you are very skillfull and own a fine tipped sauldering device it's possible to repair it yourself although not highly advisable. If you'd prefer to have a pro look at it for you, just comment back with your region(country and city) and I will recommend an appropriate facility. Chris

My computer doesn't recognize my dane-elec 8gb usb stick , although other usb devices do work.


1. Try a different USB port. If other ports recognize it, then the original port is fried. 2. Try a different computer. If the other computer does not recognize it, then your flash drive is damaged.

Good Luck!

Emac won't start up


An Emac! one of my favorite CRT Macs :D

They sometimes had a problem of the vibrations of the speakers killing the CRT Tube. But it sounds like you are having worse problems.

the first suspect would be bad ram. Try removing one stick, then the other and running it with only one stick. If you only have one stick, then get ahold of a new stick and try that. There is a little rectangular cover on the bottom of the computer that your ram hides under.

If that doesnt fix it, return any purchase of sticks or ram and lament the death of your mac. Not that it is not fixable, its just cheaper to get a new one, and hey, unless your hard drive is fried, you can even get all your data off! How cool is that?

DISCLAIMER: You are dealing with a CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) Monitor. It can and will shock you if you touch the wrong bit. Possibly even lethally. EVEN if it is unplugged. If you dont feel comfortable opening the case, pay a professional.

Here is a link showing how to take apart your mac. http://www.wilko.com/emac/
This also has a good picture of the memory cover.

Once you have the hard drive out you can get and IDE to USB cable or hard drive enclosure, and hook your old drive up to your new mac, and use the migration utility (in the utilities folder) and pull your whole account (applications and all) to the new mac.

You can get a 1.4GHz Emac for around $200 these days.

Dane Elec 4gb USB Not Readable


Try it in a different computer or even a different usb port on the computer that you are using. If a second computer gives you the same error, then the drive is either damaged or its filesystem is corrupted. In the first case there is not much you can do. In the second case you may be able to reformat it to make it work, but you would lose any data that was on it.

When I put my DaneElec 4GB USB Drive into my USB port, nothing happens. We have Vista.


Do other USB devices work when you plug them in the USB port?
If they don't then you have a faulty USB port otherwise the DaneElec is faulty or needs formatting.

Sometimes when a flash memory stick fails because it was not removed from the USB port properly. If the device is removed by just pulling it out of the USB port, it can cause the flash device to fail, you must click on the Safely Remove Hardware icon on the Task Bar and select the device you wish to remove and only do so when instructed to do so.

When the flash memory device appears to malfunction it maybe possible to restore it by reformatting it. Insert the flash drive into the USB port then Click on Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Disk Management.
Then right click on Disk 1 removable drive and click Format. After the flash drive has been formatted it will indicate that it is Healthy.

You need to format the external drive. Format the drive as primary drive and in FAT32. (FAT32 will allow data to be exchanged between MACs and PCs).
Insert the external hard drive into the USB port then Click on Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Disk Management.
Then right click on Disk 1 removable drive and click Format. After the flash drive has been formatted it will indicate that it is Health

Unable to upgrade to system leopard on my eMac


With software and computers changing constantly-I use older software for older macs. You will continuously run into problems dealing with new software and old computers. See if you can find older versions that still run great rather than the creative suite. Stick with earlier system software as well. Now days 640 for memory is not much because of the increase in software space use. You can also allocate memory to certain software you use most.
