Hard disk problem

Yeah. It says I must install it, on the ''found new hardware wizard'' window. Then it also says to insert disk or find location. However, it ccan't be installed at all. Is it the hard disk that's spoilt? or just my computer?

Neither, the new disk is in need of a driver to operate it it should be in the box with the drive
for some reason it is not seen as plug and play. you could delete it from system in device manager and try plugging it in again. Watch the bottom right of screen FOUND NEW Hware.... Installing new hardware Your hware is ready to use should then show. if that dont occur then the problem is an incompatible new hDD

It says that we have to insert the cd on the disk drive but what if our pc has no cdroom? how can we install via internet?


Just copy the driver to your hard disk and unpack it if needed. If the driver package has a dedicated install/setup program, run it. If it doesn't, use windows install new hardware wizard and when asked about the source for the driver select "i will specify the location" and navigate to the folder you unpacked the driver into.

Hi all, My hard disk suddenly stop working, when


Try going to the control panel and then the install new hardware. When it asks for you to search for driver don't let the system look for a driver. Go to manual setup(or install from a list). If that doesn't work, then go to the seagate website to see if they have a driver for your version of windows. If seagate has the driver, then download it, go to install hardware, run the wizard, and when it asks for you to install from a disk that came with the device, click that option and the go to the directory where you downloaded the driver and load the driver.

You might have installed the drivers recently with the "found new hard" wizard without selecting "No, Not this time".
Once the "found new hardware" wizard pops up, don't close it or cancel it, rather leave it and directly go to your device manager, expand all the snap-ins and locate any device link with yellow highlighted question (?) mark. Make sure in which device's category it is listed, and install the driver from the "found new hardware" wizard by selecting "No Not this time only" before you proceed to the next step.

If you have problem, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Im having a problem when connecting my creative zen to my computer my computer will not read it


Hello,
When you experience next making connection:
Connecting the device to the computer Wizard found new hardware pops up.
Only this time the Windows update searching for software will not work on automatic routine:
ending up with "Cannot Install this Hardware".

Solution:
Manual performing the wizard, setting the device to USB connection type:
1. Can Windows connect to Windows Update to search for software ?
Select "No, not this time".
[Next]
2. If your hardware came with an installation CD, or floppy disk, insert it now.
Select "Install from a list or specific location(Advanced)."
[Next]
3. Please use your search and installations options.
Select "Don't search I will choose the driver to install."
[Next]
4. Select the device driver you want to install for this hardware.
Select "USB Mass Storage Device."
[Finish]

Note: when using MSC mode always safely remove hardware, the players' removable disk. The icon in the right corner of the task bar.

Once the device can be reached in MSC mode it should be ready to install new firmware on the player:
1. Backup data on the player to the computer when not on the PC already.
2. Reinstall / update firmware from computer to the player: after this the device will have all the maps for writing data and it can be approached in MTP mode again, using application software like Windows Media Player 11.

I put the usb port in the computer and it will say the computer has found new hardware and for me to install it when i do it will say hardware can't install. what do i do?


Selecting or switching automatically MTP < > MSC
Connecting the player before a media software program is installed, the player will connect as a flash drive also called removable disk in MSC mode.
There are 2 settings for connection mode in the player, MTP and MSC.
See page 36 of the manual for more information and how to set the USB mode:
http://www.cobyusa.com/files/manuals/MP705_MN.pdf

USB mode MTP
Install Windows Media Player 11 for MTP connection to the computer.
When needing a media player update from Microsoft see:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/default.mspx


USB mode MSC

WITH SERVICE PACK 3 (WIN XP) MY 795 IS "DISCONNECTED" NO MATTER WHAT! PLEASE HELP!!


The iFP-795 is a player that has connection type UMS
(also called MSC): seeing the player as a removable disk:
Go to next site to see the connection type:
http://www.iriver.com/flash/index.asp?code=0300
and click on connection. Scroll down to see the iFP-700 series listed in the connection type UMS.
UMS = Universal Mass Storage
MSC = Mass Storage Class

With XP sp3 the computer Operating System has setup USB connections with new drivers, that support both UMS (= MSC) and MTP connections.
MTP = Media Transfer Protocol

When you experience next making connection:
Connecting the device to the computer Wizard found new hardware pops up.
Only this time the Windows update searching for software will not work on automatic routine: ending up with "Cannot Install this Hardware".

Manual performing the wizard, setting the device to USB connection type:
1. Can Windows connect to Windows Update to search for software ?

Computer doesn't recognize camera


Remove previous all installation/ file if any. Insert the Driver CD in the CD ROM again a wizard interface would be active, from that wizard complete the installation by clicking Next - Next. Do not plug the camera before fresh installation complete. If wizard ask to plug your camera, then plug it.

Sanyo VPC-s500 i cant get it to install drivers or find them so i can upload pictures to my computer


The simple solution to this problem is that no drivers are required. This camera is treated as a removable (secondary) drive just as if it was a USB thumb drive or external hard drive.
First go to settings on the camera by rotating the dial to the wrench icon.
Turn the camera on and select Set-Up 2
Select USB
Select PC
Your camera is now ready to use with your computer.
Now plug your camera into your computer and check under My Computer for the drive to show. You can now copy files over to your computer from the camera.
If the drive isn't showing you'll have to go into Disk Management to view it
Disk Management is under Administrartive Tools located in your Control Panel (or Start Menu if you have it set to show there)
Select Administrative Tools
Computer Management
On the left hand side click Disk Management (or on the right click Storage then Disk Management)
Finally you can now Right Click the cameras drive and chose Open
