It will not boot up stops when it say detecting storage device


Remove the hard drive and put it into an enclosure. Plug it into another computer as a slave. Then you can copy your files on it.
If it shows up in 'my computer' as a drive letter(like E: drive) but you can't access it, you can recover data from hard drive with data recovery program. Asoftech data recovery is a professional data recovery program that can recover data after deeply scanning your hard drive to look for lost data due to drives crash, physical damage, system sabotage, virus attack etc.

How to install windows 7 from pen drive


Its very difficult to install windows 7 if you are not having a DVD drive, Especially when you are planning to upgrade your windows xp system you would like to see how vista looks. So you need to install it and see. Requirements: USB pen drive 4GB or more
Windows 7 DVD
Step 1: Download HP USB storage format tool from here and install on your computer.
Step 2: Once you finish installation, double click on HP USB storage format tool and format your pen drive in NTFS
For this, select NTFS from File system option and Check quick format option and click on start.

While doing the format the data stored on your Pendrive will be lost. You keep a back if needed. Press YES on the warning message

Once the format finished you will get a message with the details and Click
on OK

Now insert Windows 7 DVD in to DVD Drive and go to command prompt.
For that go to start -> RUN and type CMD and press enter or OK

You will see the command prompt with black back ground
Now you need to change the directory to your DVD drive where you put the windows vista DVD.
For that type G: and press enter (here I am using G because in my system DVD drive letter is G. So you need to check your DVD drive letter and type accordingly)
So the directory will change to G:>
Now type cd boot and press enter
Now the interface will be like G:boot>
Then type bootsect.exe /nt60 h: (where h is the drive letter of your pen drive)
Now you will get a successful message like below

Now you can close the command prompt and copy all the contents from the windows 7 DVD to the pen drive

It will start copying now

Once it’s finished, you need to restart your pc and access the bios of your system and make first boot device as USB pen drive.
That’s it, now you can see installation starts from the USB pen drive.

Whenever i send any data to pen drive then during that time of interval it shows that data but after ejecting from the pc and after re insurting it shows that file corrupted,please help me now.


I'm assuming you are using Windows, please let me know if you aren't.
The most likely reason is that your device is set to "optimized for performance" and is caching the files, rather than writing them directly to the pen drive. If you use the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon from your system tray to disconnect the drive first does it then save the files properly?
If it does then you can set the device to "Optimized for quick removal" by going into the device manager and double-clicking the device (may be called a USB storage device, or Generic storage device in disk drives) and then under poicies change it to "Optimized for quick removal". This will mean slower performance as the files are written to the device in "real time" rather then being stored in memory, but it should stop them becoming corrupted.

USB Pen Drive


In win 98 eject pen drive before unpluging it.

In later windows use icon near clock ( bottom right of screen ) and stop mass storage device before unpluging it.

That should solve problem.

Solution:- Try Connecting a Different Device to the USB Port. i.e MP3 player Or Digital Camera et,c.

Solution:- Check that the USB Header Cables ( from Motherboard To USB Ports ) Are connected Or incorrectly Connected.
