Often times, all you need to do is plug the device into your usb port and windows will automatically recognize the device and install the drivers for it. Try restarting your computer. Also, there are some external USB devices that require an additional power source to function, so make sure you have the DVD plugged into the wall outlet and into the DVD device.

My Notebook acer travelmate 2450 doesn't start correctly. After boot, only appears the following msg "operation system not found". Futhermore, I can't boot linux or windows by CDROM, because when I open...


Check with someone you know to see if they have a USB external CD or DVD drive that you can borrow. Then set it to boot from USB. There is also a possiblity that you have a corrupt CMOS fireware. See if you can download an BIOS firmware update and place it on a external floppy and install. Good Luck

I reinstalled my OS win XP . now no usb


Open Run and launch regedit
Browse to the following location
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\USBSTOR
In the right pane, look for an entry named Start. If you find one delete it. Your USB devices should start working immediately.
If not please report back.

How to reformat my laptop? I don't have Cd rom, no floppy disc, its notbooting in usb flash drive, i dont have external optical drive. Whatshould I do? Thanks in advanced, acer 340t travelmate


If you could go to Avira and download there rescue disk on the flash drive, plug in the flash drive while the lap is off and start it with flash in.

Then you can run the rescue in dos( dos is before windows starts)
You said you could not because of windows, this rescue will scan
the entire hard drive, and if you have something like a rootkit, virus, trojan, Avira will kill it. Avira is the second best anti-virus software
on the planet.

Tap f8 when you lap starts to bring up the boot menu, and pray
that the flash drive is listed.

DVD WRITER


What kind of plug in are you using to hook to you computer a Usb, If so go into your device manager and look into the usb settings when the dvd is plugged in and turned on, Now find the device you plugged in you should see it in the under the usb tab and open the plus + sign then make sure you are online and try to update there see what happens, If that don't work go into your control panel and go to the add and remove hardware and use that to install drivers for the dvd writer it should install them there If not let me know we will fix it somehow if that don't work, Thanks for reading my solution and Have a Happy Holidays
