Re: Lifebox (Maxtor) 250G Med device and Mass Storage


Please backup all of your files in your Lifebox to your computer and format the Lifebox to a FAT32 file system. If you want to know why this problem seeks you... NTFS file system cannot be read in other kinds of devices such as TVs, Cameras (New ones maybe) and more! So if you want to watch DVDs on your TV you better format your drive to a FAT32 file system.

Hope this helps!

Cannot format usb write protected transcend

USB drives can be write-protected by modifying the StoreageDevicePolicies Registry key and WriteProtect Registry value.
click Start>run>regedit to open Registry Editor. and press control+F to open the find dialogue box and type "usb device" or "driverdesc" to open usb mass storage device or type "usb mass storage device" in the search windows. And right click on it and delete. This will set the policy value to 0. then insert your usb device. It will work fine.
# Remember: do not delete any unknow files in the registry as this will make some programes not work as usual.

If you are running a Windows XP OS then you might be able to:

- click start right click on my computer select open
- Right click the icon of your Flash Drive (It should be F:/ or something)
- Click Properties in the menu that comes up
- Click the Sharing tab
- Click permissions
- And finally, click Allow next to Full Control.

hope this helps

Hi, i put in my sandisk usb, computer sees it but wont let me store anything on it??

Your SanDisk Cruzer appears on your computer as two drives
  1. A CD-ROM ( with the icon of a Cd-Rom) that contains the U3Smart Operating system, but does not have any space for storage.
  2. A mass storage device.
The two devices are labeled sequentially if CD-ROM is E, the mass-storage drive is F, but that is not guaranteed.

You should drop files on the mass-storage device, not the CD-ROM.

I use 2 GB SD cards in my Canon SD500 digital. Some friends have told me I should be formatting these cards before use. I have never done this and all seems to be OK. Is there an advantage to formatting or...

Well when you fromat the storage device it completely wipes out all info on the drive. By just deleting the photos off once you are done there is still bits of info left behind. You actually gain more storage after a fresh reformat then if you just delete photos. But if you don' feel like formatting thats ok it won't hurt anything.

Sandisk Micro SD not being read by phone or laptop

This is worh a try. Use the format tool from here and see if it recognises it.If so then format it. I know it says it's for a USB device but card readers are connected to the USB header on the MoBo

Won't do any harm to try.

Uninstall problem MTP device in device manager. Reinstall it as a USB mass storage device. It should connect to the USB port. Unintall that USB mass storage device. Scan for hardware changes. It will find your mp3 player and install it. In the window to choose what action to take, choose sync music. Media player will open and connect. So then, will your other apps.

My sd card says it's write-protected and i don't know how to fix it or where to remove the write-protection because i never put one on. It won't let me delete or put new songs or pictures on it.

Two causes that I've run across one is the slider is in the wrong spot just need to move it to unlocked or the card has become corrupted which means you need to format it. Usually happens when you go from one OS to another to load stuff or if you formatted it on a device that doesn't quite format it right.

To reformat put it in the card reader in your pc and under my computer find the card. Might show as a usb mass storage is you use a card reader or sdcard if you have it built in. Right click and format. You can sometimes copy your data off of the card first but most of the time you will see card or device not ready which means you won't be able to. So all you can do is reformat.
