Hello B2BRI,

Every hard drive have its own operating system. When you connect hard drive in any operating system it will look for its own partition. The Windows OS have FAT & NTFS , Linux have ext2 & ext3, Mac have HFS & HFS+ partition.

So if you want to use the hard drive in any operating system, the hard drive must have operating system partition. You can not use the mac partitioned hard drive on windows or linux operating system.

MY Macbook pro disc drive wont read the Starcraft game discs. Every other cd or dvd i put in the drive at least reads, but when I put in starcraft it just spins for a second, pauses, and spins again...


I was pretty disappointed when I couldn't play a 12 year old game on my new macbook either. The best thing to do is go to battle.net, load up the CD key and then load the software onto your mac. The downside is that you will need internet access before playing even if you play single player. That's the way I got around it.

There are a few things I can think of that may be causing the problems...

1: The data on your hard drive has been corrupt some way. (Usually happens if you touch the hard drive's plug in with your fingers or a piece of metal) you will have to buy a new hard drive (recommend a 1st party one to save you time and stress)

2: Your using a 3rd party unauthorized hard drive and after the february or november update (can't quite remember) all unauthorized memory units are automatically locked and all data in that memory unit becomes corrupt and unable to read just about all data on it... (Just buy a 1st party as it will save you time and stress)

3: You have been banned from xbox live... When you get banned microsoft locks your hard drive just like explanation 2 EXCEPT this effects 1st party hard drives aswell... I'm not quite sure about this but I think it also locks out any hard drive/memory card you put in it ever again... If youve been banned then I would recommend either buying and elite (for the 120gb hard drive, headset, live bundle) or a pro.

Over all I'm 99% sure that you can't salvage your game data... sorry.

Game freezes after playing for a while but no red rings appear


Games freeze for two reasons. Overheating and the hard drive locking up. If you have your games installed, you most likely eliminated the overheating problem.

Since you are not getting Red Ring, it probably isn't overheating. That leaves the hard drive. Turn of the console and unplug it. Remove the hard drive. Now is a good time to clean any dust from the connectors or vents. Reattach and play. Some games like Fable 2, Fallout 3, and others are more prone to freezing when accessing the hard drive that others. If it is freezing more times than not, you have an issue with the hard drive.

When I turn the hard drive on it beeps 6 times intermittently and doesnt boot up as normal. The monitor is switched on but there is no picture. I tried another monitor with my hard drive and that worked...


Unplug power from the machine for a period of 5-10 minutes.

Plug it back in and attempt to boot. Carefully notice if there are any beeps again, and listen for pauses in between. Dell beep codes go in a three pulse pattern I.E. 4-Slight Pause-4-Slight Pause-2-Pause/ and repeat.

After this, you may have to open your machine and assure that everything is well connected.

There is a chance however that a major system component has failed and needs to be replaced.

Hope this helps.

Copying sims2 game to an external hard drive


I suggest try playing the game on a different computer. This usually happens when you play the game on a computer that does not meet the games system requirement. Most probably the specifications of this computer is lower than the computer you originally play the game with.

Plasma Burn IN


It's actually similar to the old screen burn in you'd see on very old CRT televisions and monitors. You can play your playstation on it, just make it a point not to leave it on the same screen for long periods. For instance, if you pause the game, turn the TV off until you're ready to continue.

Plasma Burn In only happens if you leave the same image on the screen for an extended period. Just don't do that, and you'll be fine.

Plazma burn in from video games


Plasma burn-in occurs when the same picture is on the screen for a long time. You should only have a problem if you leave the WII on a menu for extended periods, or leave it paused for extended periods. Be careful about that, and you should be fine.
