    Is it possible for a dvd hardrive to disconect itself or perhaps burn itself out of use from downloading to many games?

    my computer has stated that my registry is corrupt code 19, that either a program is incomplete or damaged. Is this repairable or will I have to send my unit to acer for repair.

    They do wear out mechanically. I've never heard of them burning out.Also, the lens does get dirty. You may want to get a cd/dvd player cleaner..

Do you check the setting of your hard drive? It seems that you have already another hard drive (HD) install which is working already were your operating system install. Try to put the 2nd HD setting in slave position. Follow instruction that is written at the back of HD. Your computer should read the 2nd HD as slave and will see it as drive: F or G and so on.

Computer won't recognize external usb hard drive


try it on another computer if that dosent work you should
reformat your computer but first backup all your data by putting your another internal hardrive on your computer and move all your files you need to the empty hardrive and after that take the hardrive with all your stuff in it off the computer and then reformat the hardrive which the external hardrive does not work on and install a new operating system then put the other hardrive with all your stuff back on your computer and transfer your stuff into the hardrive with a operating system then try the external hardrive

OR
you can burn all your stuff into a CD or a DVD
OR
you can put all your stuff into FlashDrives and then after you reformat the hardrive with an operating system put your stuff back into the computer and after that the external hardrive should work

How to play a laserburned disc.


We all know how much off a bummer it is if you're playing a game and it suddenly says your disc can't be read. You open the tray and there is a perfect ring around your disc. Well the good news is, you DO NOT have to purchase another copy. To play your game and the laserburned disc, obtain a flawless copy and install it to your hardrive (maybe a friend's or family member's copy). On the xbox 360, you install it to your hardrive by hitting the "x" button on the play disc screen and simply selecting "install to hardrive".... You can then give your friend their disc back and you should be able to play the game on your faulty disc.

Bios not recognizing new hardrive


Hi:
Some older laptops don't always recognize the full size hard drives bigger than 134 Gb, but they usually show up in your bios. There isn't an easy way to install it wrong, so if the drive wasn't new to you, it might have a problem...New Hard drives come with installation CD's, but that won't do you any good until the drive is recognized

I have a new hard drive and no operating system for my laptop


well you donot need special programs you can use the same operating system to format, partition and load your operating system, after you connect your harddrive to your board go to setup Bios and look for the hardware that installed on your chip and you will see if your hardrive is recognized, After that load your operating system cd on your dvd rom and let the pc boot to that dvd drive, here the you will start loading the operating system, so you have to format, partition and then install windows, Try windows vista will make it easy for you.

No usb


If your USB ports are installed correctly and enabled in BIOS, you will see Universal Bus Controller list in the the Device Manager. Double-click your USB in the Device Manager and a dialog box will appear. Click on the driver tab and update the driver. To get to Device Manager right-click on My Computer>click on Hardware>Device Manager. If your computer has a built-in USB device and does not detect the device through the Device Manager, confirm that the USB is enabled in the computers BIOS and that the BIOS supprts USB devices.

Ps3 60gb no operating system


First the PS3 doesn't use flash memory, it uses a 2.5in SATA hardrive. It can't be that there is no OS, otherwise the PS3 would write it to the hardrive, it must be corrupted or have some other problem.

I would recommend buying a 2.5in SATA hardrive - they're very cheap. Ask in store for one, or you can get one from Play.com. If that doesn't work, it's a problem with the PS3 itself and you should phone Sony.

Your hardrive is having issues communicating with the console. I would try clearing the "cash". To do this call xbox customer support.
