Re: Western Digital My Book 500GB Essential Edition...

Did your WD 500 come with software? If so have you installed the software? Does windows see the new external hard drive under my computer? You can always drop and drag files and folders directly to your new hard drive. What operating system are you using? Please answer questions and then we will go from there.

How can you tell if the system is bad on apc back ups es 650

plug something (other then a computer)into it, turn the gadget on, then unplug the UPS. If the gadget continues active the UPS is OK. Generally after you have punched every button (circuit breakers). After that put a Volt/Ohm meter on the batteries (and the charging wires to check the charging curcuit is OK.

External hard disk and pcmcia cardbus

There may not be enough power from the cardbus to run it. That bus is very low current to power it up so you will need the power cord.

Try reinstalled the card drivers.

Hi Jazzart
Frankly speaking i have never worked with wavelab essential but have used other editors.
But usually they have quite similar features such as this might be having audio/video clipping ,crossfading.merging and intesify,amplify and analysing tools.
first you select the clips you want to edit which are shown in the form of waveforms. Real time precision allows you to mark exact point from where you want to select a portion of the clip.
You can be more precise using the audio analyzer tool for clips .
Hope it helps .

No cd drive

check in control panel under system, device manager if it picks your device up if not it could be that its power cable is un plugged or its IDE cable is un plugged or it is conflicting with your hardrive, then you need to change the jumper behind the drive so that its not the same as your harddrive eg , hardrive slave and cd drive master etc.still not working then check if the drive is installed eg. check its driver.
