One way to avoid this problem is not to save data that is equal to or more than the flash disk capacity.

My acer aspire one netbook AOD257 keeps telling me no bootable device insert boot disk


First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

Why my dvd /cd not work properly , in hardware it show the it is woorking properly , but if i put any cd and insert it then after its not read the data in cd


Does the led on the dvd/cd drive flash after you've put in a disk? Go into "My Computer" and check that the drive is indicated there. If it isn't, then you would need to check the drive connector inside the computer to make sure it is connected properly and that it is not loose. If the drive is indicated in my computer, try another disk, perhaps a music cd, and see if the drive reads the disk. If it does, that tells you that you may have some defective disks. If the drive is detected in my computer, and no disks are read by the drive, then I would assume the drive is defective and replace it. Good luck!

I have a Zip 250 disk that will not read. When I insert the disk in the external disk drive, it will spin and stop a few times and that's it. When I try to access the disk/drive letter via "My Computer",...


If the disk is unreadable this means that the format or the files extensions on it are not readable in the operation system you use..either are damaged or the disk itself is damaged or it wasn't finalized like it should ...If other disks inserted run ok than the disk it is damaged and it is nothing wrong with the drive itself..When it says to insert a disk this means that it is not seeing the disk at all and it sounds like a drive problem ..but if other disks are ok ..than it is just a damaged disk or in a format unreadable ..beware if it a cd unit ..will not read dvd-es..or if it a dvd kind will not read large dvd-es (dual layer) or blue-ray disks..

I have a dell precision 470, and it has 3 33gb hard drives (3 arrays) and have been formatted. When I insert the xp cd to install it, the setup tells me theres no hard drive in the pc??? I go to the system...


You may need to load third party drivers for them. During install windows asks you if you want to load them. Not knowing what kind of drives they are though i cant tell you what drivers, sorry.

My Cd drive is not reading ANY cds


Sounds like the lense of the drive is dirty, buy a cleaning disk for it, and see if that helps, otherwise you may have to get a new drive, cause this one may be defective.

Maybe your cd cannot be read anymore by your CD drive.
be sure that the cd is cleaned and no crack traces on it.
Please try another a very new CD/DVD to see if the CD drive can read.

if read then, your cd is damage. but there is some CD drive that cannot read some cd disc. You should select maybe the cd rom compatibility.
