I have had this problem and found it to be the tapes are the cause.
Last week this same problem happened and 8 out of 10 tapes are causing this freezing suddenly. the other 2 work fine and brand new tapes work fine too.

Can't find CD icon is missing from one computer

Windows Key-E will bring up windows explorer which should show your list of available drives.
If this doesn't show your CD drive then try removing CD from drive. Does the disc tray open? If so then reboot system without disc and try the above method to find cd-drive.
If this doesn't work you may need to involve more hands on trouble-shooting.

My notino ul100 will not reboot even after the F7 procedure

Remove the hard drive this is very easy. Connect to another pc running xp using a USB caddie. On the notino drive check the windows directory. If you that there are no files only folders then copy explorer.exe to the windows directory. Restore HDD to Notino. Recovery using F7 should work now. This is because the Higrade recovery uses the file explore.exe to validate the destination drive for recovery ( even if file explorer.exe is blank file) This can also be done without removing the HDD. When you get to the screen with the two GREEN pointers move it aside and you will see a dos prompt. Copy explorer.exe from a USB memory stick to D:\windows\ the usb stick should be drive G: Then reboot. It works honestly good luck Switcher

The USB icon appears; but, cannot access the drive at all. Does not show up as one of the drives. Suspect the drive is toast. Can the drive in the box be replaced with another IDE drive? If so, is...

The Wolverine is a high-speed drive, so try also connecting it to an externally powered "dumb" USB hub. HS spindles may require a slightly higher current and the USB port may not supply it properly.

I have not been able to find the Wolverine's internal HD specs, but the device was reviewed in 2003 and at that date most 2.5" disks were EIDE. While some EIDE drives did have a limitation of 137 Gb of addressable space, this was mostly solved even in embedded chipsets (such as Cypress) by 2003.

So, my guess is that with all probability you can place any EIDE 2.5" drive in the enclosure; if I'm wrong (I think not), the drive will still work and you'll have to repartition it, to only access its first 137 Gb.

Let me know how it goes.

SanDisk Cruzer Micro 2 crashes my system!

Hi marykins,

When you say 'crash' does this mean the system reboots, freezes up entirely, or blue screens?

I've seen similar issues when the USB 2.0 host controller isn't enabled in the System (BIOS) setup. Many devices, such as USB mice and MP3 players and even flash drives, will show up and some will function, but if the USB is required to act as a host controller, devices such as external hard drives and (sometimes) flash drives will either not show up at all on the computer or will crash it.

I'd suggest first looking in the BIOS setup to make sure that both the USB host controller and USB legacy support are enabled.
