Hi Thanks for your question.
First of all please try to connect hard drive to different PC so you can make sure it's not a PC fault. Second thing is check the cable. I advice to buy a new cable since they're very cheap. Please don;t hesitate to ask more questions if further assistance is needed. Good Luck!

DiNovo Edge space bar and "n" key do not respond


I have the same problem with my dinovo after 2 years of usage, and i have found a temporary fix.
The temporary fix is to connect the dinovo to another computer and then hammer the keys vigorously, prefferably if dragging your finger over the keys, the keys will then start funcion immediately. Then connect dinovo to the first (main) computer again, and here the keys wont function, but after hammering them again vigorously it also starts working again here. However this is a temporary solution and the problem will probably reocurr. Notably hammering the keys on the first (main) computer wont yield any results even after long time of hammering without the second computer-lockup. Signalerror from logitech to specific computer? If there was dust this would never work on other computer so fast, and the error would not reocurr after being fixed.

My d5000 wont tranfer pics to camera. bought new computer cord for camera and still wont work


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa or Nikon Transfer.

You need to check the power supply and see if the output voltage is correct, it should be written on the power supply board by the out put connector, if it is correct then it is possible that the inverter is bad.. I suspect a bad power supply.

Ipod Nano 8gb won´t synchronize


Hi,
Try this.
  1. Put the iPod into disk mode by holding the menu and middle keys together until the screen turns dark.
  2. Then quickly hold both he middle button and play/pause buttons until the iPod shows a check mark and the words disk mode at the top.
  3. ThenClick on iTunes to open it.
  4. Connect the iPod to the computer. You may have to do a restore depending on what iTunes says you need to do.
If this doesn't work, check the bottom of the ipod where you connect the cable. See if there are any bent pins. These are very fragile and can be damaged if you insert or pull the cable out the wrong way. Hope that helps.
