The usb drive may be faulty, take it back to the supplier and get it replaced,as it should not take that long to be recognized by the pc.

good luck

How do I move a copy of Quicken from my desktop to my laptop.


Hi.
When you downloaded quicken, it should by default save to a sub folder named "Download" Depending on your PC's operating system, the download folder is normally found in the "My Documents folder" Click on the Start buttom (Windows) in the bottom left corner of the taskbar. Inside the Download folder should be a file with the name Quicken.exe. Copy the Quicken.exe file to a memory stick or flash drive, then stick in into the usb port of the other PC. Click on the Quicken.exe file and it will run the installation of Quicken on the second PC. Install Quicken the same way on the 3rd PC.
Good luck!!

Pny Optima Attache Flash Drive suddenly locked


look for a slider on the flash drive, I had a pny flash drive that had a slider that when enabled would protect the flash drive from accidental erasure or modification of the files.

The most probable reason such bad contact in place of the join.

Try clean contacts first compressed by air but afterwards alcohol.

I purchased Quicken 2008. After opening, it crashes right away. What is the cause?


You can check your Windows logs or Quicken forums to find out about that first, then ask here once you've done the basic legwork. I can't help but notice you've caled it an Acer PC Desktop problem but that you've somehow focused in on Quicken 2008; No.

Read the system requirements on Quicken 2008; odds of fuzzy bagels to uneaten lox say your PC doesn't meet them.

Go to ADD HARDWARE and try to force the install.

Just so you know, Optima Pro Attaché USB 2.0 Flash Drive was designed with Windows Vista in mind, and works in conjunction with new SuperFetch (intelligent caching) to enhance system performance for quicker startup and windows multi-tasking.
But it's also compatible with most PC/MAC laptop and desktop computers with available USB 2.0 port (Backwards compatible to USB 1.0).

Windows Vista Home Premium will not let me open PNY Optima Pro Attache 4GB


the files from XP may or may not be readable on vista...and I can assure you vista files will not read on xp..

recommend you get two of those.

no guarantees of interchangeability from xp to vista(why am I not surprised?)

Backing up a Quicken file


This is probably due to an update. Quicken and quickbooks perform updates in the back ground on a frequent basis. The easiest way to take care of this problem would be to create a directory called backup on the flash drive and instruct quicken to backup to it.

Provided you're using windows XP, click on My Computer, select the icon for your flash drive, F: Right click and create a new folder and name it backup. In quicken when you go to backup, just change where it says F:\ to F:\backup

this should fix your problem. Please email back if you have any problems getting it to work.
