Re: Problem putting card and transfers
I have seen this numerous times in the past occuring in Sony/Canon/Minolta/Olympus digital cameras. Almost on all occasions the problem was with the memory card, either it becoming corrupt or simply malfunctioning. What I suggest you try, is to back up everything on the card with an external card reader and format the card. After formatting, let the camera format the card again. If the problem persists, you will need a new card. The problem may lie with a malfunction of the card slot of the camera but this is not usually the case unless it has been physically damaged or moisture has gotten in.

first insert flash on to computer go to divice manager select the usb port u put the flash in , open contents then start your email under compose message select attach it will ask you from where select flash and select resume it will transfer data to email.
if you external hdd do not show on other computers, usually it meant that power supply on these casings die... but in this particular case it is possible that power supplied by usb port is insufficient to support data transfer. connect recommended power supply (on the back of this particular model you have usb plug and power plug, power supply is/was sold separately) usually hdd inside is still fine and retain data.
if this did not solve your problem, i would suggest purchase little powered universal hdd craddle, they cost about $15 to $25, remove, hdd from casing and connect to the craddle. data should be then accessible directly from your usb port.
as long as hdd is turning, data is accessible and recoverable, even if disk was wiped off.
Purchase an inexpensive card reader such as the Ativa, available at Staples and Office Depot for $9.95. Put your memory card with the photos on it into the reader and plug it into a USB port on your computer. Windows will recognize it as another drive and assign it a drive letter. Using any graphics program, or Windows Explorer, navigate to that drive, open the file containing the pics, click select all, and copy the pics to a file on your computer. Make sure that all the pics have transferred or copied to the new file. Replace the card back into your camera and format the card so it is empty and ready to receive new pics. FYI: Less than 1 gig memory cards are available on ebay for dirt prices. Also, go to the camera manufacturers website and see if they have a firmware update for your camera that allows larger than 1 gig cards to be used. I had to do that for my Fuji S700 so I could use 4 gig cards. It used to max out at 2 gigs. If this has solved your problem please rate it accordingly. Good luck.
Are you sure you have bluetooth! Toshiba use the same hard drive image for the whole range of a certain model that is why you may have the software but not the hardware, have a look in device manager and see if you have a bluetooth device installed.
