Re: My 400gb freecom external hardrive won,t uncompress...

Have you tried moving the files onto your laptop and uncompressing them there?

Did you have Winrar (or any other copressing software) installed on the laptop before you went back to factory settings? Are the compressed files on the external drive in the .zip or .rar (or another) file format?

How do i burn a dvd from my external unit to my burner in my laptop

Depends on what operating system you have............

1) Left-click on Start > My Computer
Look at the drive letter that corresponds with the external drive.
It may be E:, or F:, or G:, or so forth.

[ D: drive is usually reserved for the optical drive in your laptop. C: drive is the Harddrive ]

2) Double-click on the drive letter
Open the folder you want, (Double-click on it), Right-click on the file name, Left-click on Copy

Vista and Win7:
1) Click on the Windows logo button
2) Click on Computer
3) Double-click on the drive letter that corresponds with the external drive
4) Double-click on the folder you want (Open), Right-click on the file name, Left-click on Copy.

Don't know what drive letter corresponds?
Look at the drive letters with a device listed to the right.
Memorize, or write down the drive letter that has a device listed to the right of it.

Turn the laptop off. (Properly)
Unplug the external unit.
Turn the laptop on, and go to My Computer. (Computer)

What drive letter no longer has a device listed to the left of it?
That is the drive letter you want.

Laptop off, plug the drive back in again. Turn the laptop on, and proceed with the above instructions.

No drive letter matching up to your external drive?

Hello threw away my install dvd for my LiteOn DX-20A4PU and am trying to find a driver online or a dvd to re-buy any suggestions?

there arent any drivers for DVDs. The CD you threw out probably had some cheap/trial CD burining software, but that comes pre-set in XP/Vista/Win7 anyways, so you don't really need anything that was on that CD.

Freecom Classic SL hard drive stopped working

Probable reason for failure of a disk is power, if the power is adequate may be some of its components like inductor, diodes in series with the power line are opened, check for any burn marks on the pcb

Format/restore computer to factory settings

Press F11 at system startup to get to the NEC recovery menu. From there, you can restore your factory settings. However, a "destructive" recovery will wipe the hard drive, including your personal files. Best to back those up first before performing the recovery.

Hope this helps - remember to rate :)

Freecom Classic DVD±RW 8432 Burner

Hi ,
Make sure you still have the software stored on your machine or on cd .
Please delete software and go to this site :
Follow instructions to reinstall software .
If same issue remains , try to remember what changes you eventually made to your machine just before problem happened and delete the changes to see what happens .
You can also try to restore your system to an earlier date , provided this is possible with Apple .
Hope this helps .
Thank you for visiting FixYa .
