Each drive on your machine is assigned a letter.
Floppy drives if you have them are A: and B:
The System drive is typically C: but does not have to be
If you have a CD drive it will be assigned a letter as well say D:
If you have a USB flash disc attached it too will have been assigned a letter such as E:

However, you hard drive may have been partitioned that is split into smaller sizes. So although you have one drive you may have more than 1 letter assigned to it.

If you are on windows click on the Start button, Righ click on My Computer or Computer (depends on your version of Windows) and select manage
Select Disk Management
(wait until the page changes)
It will tell you what each letter represents

True for Vista and later - Can't remember if it works on XP - I think it does

Easy and correct wash dry instructions

Just as I suspected, this is made out of synthetic materials. [main body] Invista Lycra, [compression] PWX FLEX, [panels] Powermesh

I suggest that you set it on "hand wash" setting on your washer. If that is not available, use "Delicate" or "Gentle" cycle. If you don't have a washing machine, best thing to do is hand wash it. Fill a clean sink with water, add a little bit of gentle detergent (many different brands are available and labeled as "gentle care". I use Seventh Generation, which can be bought at regular grocery stores and even Target!

And then hang dry it. Dryers ruin clothing especially manmade materials. I typically hang something at night and it is dry by the morning. Also recommend hanging your top in the bathroom as the enclosed area has a greater deal of circulation/ air flow than other areas of the house.

Seventh Generation

I need to know what purpose each pulley has on an 2002 aurora 3.5 v6

The crank shaft pulley drives them all. One pulley drives the power steering pump-- another drivers the alternator -- another drives the alternator-- another drives the ac compressor and the last ones will be adjuster idlers.

Will an Acomdata external hard drive (Model # HD25OUHES5-72, Serial # C1005093) work with Windows 7

Windows 7 is a pain with large external hard drives you might get messages saying the hard drive needs to be checked or formatted do you want to check the disk now or do you want to format it now.

When there is nothing wrong with it at all.

External hard drives can be used on most computers and operating systems with minimal or no requirements other than leads and drivers.

Try it and good luck.

Hope this helps

How do I use this product? I'm trying to store a software on it.

What do you mean? Install software on it? Or save files to it? External drives are primarily for storage purposes, and not for installation purposes.

If you are looking to install something on it, then you have it for the wrong reasons. It's main purpose is to store files.

Pen drive problme

you need to reformat the flash drive. right click, click format (assuming Windows XP), then format with the default options (do not quick format).

If it will not format, it is corrupted, in which case it is worthless, for all purposes.
