Surely you have to install driver first because windows does not have it in cache. If you don't have go manufacturer site

I think you might have a loose cononection for the data ports. Try putting a little bit of force on the usb device. Up, down left right. NOT ALOT. If it starts working when force is used, i tihnk you should try to take it apart and resolder the connections. If it dosen't work, uninstalling the driver and installing.

SOURCE: cant remove write protect

Download this small file:

http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/regs_edits/writeenable.reg

Save the file on your desktop. Then double click the writeenable.reg file and click on Yes when Windows asks if yo u want to write to registry.

That;s it. Now you can try to create a new folder on your usb drive and it should be created. That means it's now normal.

HTH,

Have a close look at the USB ports, make sure you don't have any bent contacts touching the outer part of the connector and shorting.

My book hard drive won't read


1. First try to use another usb cable. If it still won't work.
2. Try plugging it into another computer. If it still won't work.
3. Try removing the hard drive from your BOOK HARD DRIVE, and plugging it directly to your computers desktop SATA socket using a SATA cable. If it works, backup all the data of your BOOK HARD DRIVE and then delete the partition and make a new partition and then format it.

I'm trying to get my computer back to factory settings


If you have a Recovery Partition, It is still there. You didn't supply your Make, Model of laptop or the OS you are using. But, Remove all media for the machine,DVD,CD,USB,...etc. Shut down, Unplug, remove battery, plug in, reboot using the proper F key to enter the Recovery Partition, do A Full Factory Recovery. If asked format the drive. Your Recovery Partition is designated as another drive, it's a partition in software. The machine see the HDD as two, C ,your OS and D, Recovery , for instance.

It does not read when plugged in, I had problems with it when for no reason it went from MY BOOK to Drive after several hours of trying to fix it, I eventually got into my music then I went to safely...


Turn on your computer, plug in your My Book external hard drive (double check that the power is properly plugged into the wall and the hard drive), If nothing happens then right-click My Computer (or labeled just as Computer in Windows Vista or Windows 7), Choose Manage, Choose Storage, Choose Disc Management, towards the bottom of the window you will see Disc0, 1, 2, & so on. Are any of them colored with a Black bar across the top and labeled as Unallocated Space? If so, then right-click in that box and choose create simple volume and format in NTFS. If you don't see your hard drive listed in this window, or if you are unable to partition and format the drive, then most likely your hard drive isn't any good anymore. If it's under warranty, then return it for a new one.

Allocating ''unallocated'' space Locke up on hard drive? Only one drive. No partions that I can find. Happened on upgrading Win 7 from Win Vista. On Seagate Freeagent 500 GB USB disk.


One or more of the hints below will probably sort out most USB problems with most USB portable / external hard drives and OTHER devices (though not always)

A few things to check but assumes USB and Windows for other interfaces / operating systems (mac/ Linux) similar steps may be adapted to suit.

1. Ensure it is connected directly to the computer to a USB 2.0 port not a USB 1.0 port as this can have effects on performance and reliability

2. Use only the cables that came with it NOT one that fits that may have been lying around or is longer. Not all USB cables are equal even though they should be)

3. Do not connect through an external USB HUB unless that hub is USB 2.0 AND has its own power supply.

4. Use ONLY the power supply that came with it if it has an external power supply Don’t use any other unless you know it has both the same voltage and current rating e.g. 12V 500mA anything rated below that would not work properly.

5. Always use the same port for connecting your devices. Some devices do not like being switched about. If switched they may want to install software / drivers again. This can be especially true if you move a HUB to another port

6. For FLASH DRIVES you should ensure that the device is set for "quick removal" using the drive control panel properties or use the USB "Safely Remove Hardware" option. If you dont do this there is a very strong chance that any files you transfer may not be there when you plug into another computer.
7. It is possible to remove drives from the enclosures in most cases and connect directly inside a PC to fully check it.
You should also do this to cheack the drives connections are not bad inside the enclosure.
 
8. If none of the above steps help look at updating the drivers from the manufacturers web site in the support section.

9. If you checked and fixed anything there and still have issues then check your hardware from CONTROL PANEL / SYSTEM / HARDWARE.
Any exclamation marks by hardware need fixing before you investigate any further
10. ensure that you have set removable drives for "quick removal" or that you use the "Safly Remove Hardware" option often shown on the lower toolbar.It is possible that files my not be fully written to external devices before they are removed. This corrupts the file itself and even on occasion the drive.

When I plug in the M407 camera nothing happens


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 such as Picasa.

Tascam DP-02CF: How to transfer files to my computer?


Hi,

You can't see the fat partition from within the DP-02. It's there, but only your PC will be able to read the contents of the fat partition when you have the USB 'opened' on the DP-02. The manual states that if your CF card is less than 5 Gb in size than you will only see/be able to select one partition. The default CF card that comes with the DP-02CF is only 1 Gb.

If you've created a backup or exported your wav files properly and everything is working ok with the CF, then you should be able to see backup or wav files showing up in the fat partition while connected to the PC. Even if nothing is backed up or exported you should still see the directory structure from your PC with the three folders, BACKUP, WAVE and UTILITY. As you are not even seeing these directories, what may have happened is that the fat partition had become corrupted or these folders had gotten erased.

I would have thought that reformatting the FAT partition would have fixed this problem however and that the DP02-CF would automatically recreate the required directories on the CF media after a reformat. The manual is unclear on this however.

So a couple of things you could try:

1. You describe opening the USB connection as 'push the USB button and then hit enter'. I was assuming you meant that you were selecting 'usb' from the menu and then pressing the 'enter' button to open the usb connection. You may wish to verify that the usb connection is being opened properly first.

2. If the connection is opening ok, and after a reformat you still aren't seeing any folders in the fat partition while connected to your PC with the usb open, you might wish to try to recreating those directories in the FAT partition yourself. While accessing the FAT partition (DP-02CF's removable drive) from the PC create the three directories exactly as named in the manual (WAVE, BACKUP, UTILITY). If that works, disconnect from the PC, try exporting a track or backing up a song again, and reconnect to the PC to see if you can see/access those files now.

Best of luck.

bd.

SimpleDrive external USB Disk Drive


You may not see any icon on desktop but should see "found new hardware" at the bottom right by the time. Right click My Computer and click Manage. Under Storage click Disk Management. You should find your drive here. If its a new drive, no letter may be assigned or it may not be partitioned or formatted yet. Right click on the drive to format it and to assign a drive letter. If its already formatted and works on other computers, let me know because it could be a USB error or faulty cable.

External hard drive


Try these steps: - Right-click on "My Computer" - Click "Manage" - Click on the "Disk Management" icon in the left column (Under the "Storage" category" - If your disk appears on the right-hand side, then try to right-click on it and create a partition. The issue may just be that, since the disk is not partitioned/formatted, a drive letter has not been assigned, which would cause it to not show up in the "My Computer" list Good luck!
