Usb web cam not working

Hi guys. I was running out of hard drive space so I deleted some of the software which I didn't think I was using. It turned out that part of that was also the web cam software the got deleted. This software probably came the laptp from HP. They don't have the drivers on their site and HP/Compaq chat tech support is useless. Can you help??? Its a Compaq nx 7400 laptop running on Windows XP Professional package. I believe I have Service Pack 2 but not totally positive.

I deleted some folders on my 1TB FreeAgent External Drive for a Mac to free space so that it will have ample space to continue a backup. Even after deleting the files, available space was the same. What...

You probably deleted folders which were not that big in size. You can run some apps that will visualize the drive usage like JDiskReport ( or SpaceMonger ( This way it will be easy for you to see what folders are taking the bulk of the space in your drive. You said you are using a Mac so use JDiskReport app which works on both Mac and PC (SpaceMonger is only for PC).

I've met space limit for my SimpleTech external drive even though my internal drive still has space and both are 250 GB. Are there SimpleTech programs taking up space and if so how much of that 250 GB...

Your internal drive is different than your external drive. If you put more files onto your SimpleTech drive, then that one is going to fill up faster. The best thing to do would be to go through your SimpleTech drive and delete anything that you don't need. I don't remember my SimpleTech drive coming with any software on the drive, but if it did, it didn't take up much space.

I didn't find a port in ma laptop in which i can plug n play b'coz it didn't plug in into usb ports

Hi there,
These are the minimum system requirements of the flash drive you bought.
• Computer with a USB port • Latest version of Windows XP, Windows Vista® , Windows 7 • Mac® OS X 10.4, 10.5, 10.6 • Minimum free disk space: 600MB recommended
Any way back to the question, there is a protective plastic clip for the gold contacts have you tried removing it before using, it might be the reason you cant stick it to any USB port. Any way don't lost the cap so it can lessen dirt on the gold contacts.

Hopefully this information helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Hi,my hard drive on my Samsung NC10 wa split into 2 partitions,drive C and drive D.I deleted the D partition and was left with the C drive,so far so good.But i didn`t gain the space i was deleting into my...

This is a big deal to do this ... to regain the space, you must also reconfigure the C drive and reformat it ... guess what happens to the stuff on the C drive? (Anser: It will be gone) ... Unless you purchase special software, there is no other work around that I am aware of ... You will have to start anew. What was on the D drive to start with? Usually, manuracturers put the original softrware on the D drive so yo can restore your computer to like new condition ... what have you done?

The best thing for you to do at this point is to do a RESTORE to the day before yo deleted the D drive and hope for the best. If yo need more storeage space, I suggest a memory stick.

Thanks for your quesiton at

Western digital external hard drive showing empty folder

Hi Elizabethfam

If not removed safely, external devices can lose information when disconnected.

I recommend using a free recovery tool called Handy Recovery which is normally used to recover files accidentally files on a PC. The application can also be used to try and recover files on your external HD.

Handy recovery: (look for the small button near the bottom that says 'Freeware')

Good luck!
