Hi, HP Pocket Media drives work like regutalr external hard drives, in fact, the bring an usb cable so you can connect it to any computer, not just HPs with the media bay. Are you using the HP bay or the USB cable? Regardless, after you connect the hard drive and go to my computer and see if it shows up. If it does, just select the files and do a copy and paste to the new hard drive. I dont know if you are having problems with the software it might have or the fact that it doesnt show up on the computer, but like I said you would handle it like a regular hard drive. I hope this helsp

I have a 453 GB Lap Top, 500GB Hitachi will not back, says no more space, I was told to delete all info on 500GB and do new back up, How do I delete info from 500GB?


Open up Windows Explorer (the file manager).

Right-click on the 500GB drive (drive D: or whatever it is) then click Format.

If it says the drive is in use, make sure you close all other Windows Explorer and Command Prompt windows and try again (worst case, reboot then try again).

My son in law is trying to save some files from his Mac notebook to a HP PD0800 pocket media drive. Does he need a special driver?


If he only wants to use HP pocket drive with the MAC, then he needs to format the pocket drive with the MAC notebook.
If he wants to exchange files between the MAC and a PC, then he needs to format the pocket drive with a PC. The pocket drive needs to be formatted in FAT32.
A MAC will then be able to read and copy PC files in FAT32 format.

I have the eGo helium portable hard drive (compact edition, usb 2.0 500gb) i'm using it on my HP laptop...how do i get it to just backup my itunes music, videos and tv shows---do you not just drag it and...


you can cut and paste or just copy the media to the external hard drive. and copy it back if the data is ever lost from your computer, also you can have iTunes use the external hard drive to get media from. So you can free up valuable space on your pc's hard drive by just cut and pasting the iTunes folder to it.

Restart your computer and go into safemode then try deleting them, if that doesn't work make sure you have administrator rights and allow all privileges to you then delete the files.

New pocket media drive is stuck in computer


Just a dumb answer try removing the screws, if it doesn't work use your strength and rip it out. If you can't, then open the computer and take out the bay, then rip it out. If you still can't, step aside and let a mad do it for you.

I have an HP Touchsmart computer. When I put a data or audio CD in my DVD/CD drive, it sounds like it is going to start up, the light comes on like it is going to run, but nothing happens. Sometimes, it...


CDs means totally nothing. sorry....
what CD? , a CD-R? CD-RW, or a store bought CDDA disk
all 3 are different. (or DVD? of vast types too...)
my guess you meant CD-R. (CD record-able)
TouchSmart IQ770 PC Desktop? 2007 carbon date?

what OS, XP, VISTA or W7?

My guess its bad media or bad CD drive.
only way to prove that is use new CD-R burned on good system slow.
say using the great free utility called, imgburn.

first try a real disk, from a store, from the Music section
called CD-DA disk, play it , if it plays the CD drive might be ok.
then try what I call rubber disks, recordable. CD-R
using pro grade disk burned correctly.
buying the cheapest media can be a nightmare. here.


tell HP your OS
the as an example (i guessed OS, means operating system)
install this up date, called HP HP Personal and Pocket Media Drive Driver Update

here.
