Re: lifebox

I spoke to maplin technical support and they said its not repairable as the firmware will now be locked.  But they are happy to replace them.  If you purshased it with a hard drive installed, then this will also have to be returned so back up your data elsewhere.

Re: lifebox

I need help!

How can i convert 4GB pendrive to 8GB ...?

There is no way of doing this. If your pen drive is 4GB, that means it has only 4GB of memory chips in it. The only way to get 8GB is to buy an 8GB drive. Do not buy an upgraded (to 8GB) one, as they are lower memory ones that have had the firmware tinkered with to show 8GB, when the actual memory capacity is far less.

My psp memory card dont let me put stuff in

you may have to format the card. Also make sure your card is not placed in the lock position.
    How to Fix a PSP Memory Stick
  1. Step 1 Upgrade your PSP's Firmware (its operating system) before doing anything else. Firmware 5.0 solves many software problems that are encountered with older memory sticks. You can upgrade it by simply connecting your PSP to any wireless connection through its WiFi. Once a connection is established, the PSP will update itself automatically.
  2. Step 2 Check to see that your memory stick's plastic tongs, the small sticks that separate each connection, are straight. If one is bent, your PSP will not recognize the stick.
  3. Step 3 Remove your memory stick if it still does not work. Insert it into a PC with a memory stick slot. You will most likely be able to see all of your saved files. If so, continue to the next step. If you still cannot see your files, then your memory stick is defective, and it is not the PSP's fault.
  4. Step 4 Copy your files from the memory stick to the hard drive.
  5. Step 5 Format your memory stick using the "Format Disk" option in Windows. Open Windows Explorer, and find your memory stick listed in the "Drives" section. Right-click on the memory stick, and click "Format." Follow the on-screen instructions in the windows that pop up.
  6. Step 6 Insert your memory stick into your PSP. It should recognize the disk now. However, you now need to format the memory disk again with the PSP.
  7. Step 7 Go the PSP main menu, and select "Settings." Then select "Format Memory Disk."
  8. Step 8 Put your memory stick back in your PC, and return the files you removed earlier. When you reinsert the stick into your PSP, it should now see all the files.

I have a sandisk Cruze flash drive. How do i add video files to it?

plug the flash drive in, wait for the computer to read and add it to the list of devices..takes a few moments. It may even pop up asking what do you want to do, in your case you can click on view files. This will open a window which will show you files and folders already on the drive. These flash drives will act just like any other hard drive, you can add folders, delete folders etc. Find the files you want and just copy and paste or if you dont need to ciopy, you can simply drag and drop (which is left click and hold the button down on the file you want to transfer, drag the mouse over to the flash drive folder of your choice and let the button go when the folder highlites.

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!

I had a problem getting mine to boot but got it working by removing battery and removing AC, then pressing power button. Then plugged in AC and pressed power again. It boots. Then replace battery and cover.

As far as manuals, the official site is below. I'd download a new firmware upgrade and install is from another computer. Sometimes the computer downloading and running an install is
compromised and the virus scanner is not aware downloads are getting damaged upon arrival to your local hard drive.
