Disk copy error is shown by PC when your CD have damaged or have many scratches. Sometimes, this problem occurs because of old or damaged CD/DVD Drive. Try to copy any other CD/DVD which have good condition. If it also not working check your CD/DVD drive to your dealer.

I DID A DEFRAG AND ERROR CHECKING ON MY PORTABLE 1 TB AND IT SHOWS NO PROBLEMS BUT WHEN I COPY DATA ONTO IT THE DATA SHOWS BUT CAN NOT BE USED HOW DO I FIX IT ?.....


This sounds like a compatibility problem between the computer your using and the format (logical structure) of the portable disk.

Many things can cause this but it sounds like you have a portable disk formatted with the NTFS structure that is used with Microsoft Windows computers and are trying to write to it using an Apple Macintosh computer, possibly a laptop (MacBook, MacBook Pro, etc.).

This may not be your problem but lacking more detailed information I'll give this a try this since it exactly describes your problem and provides a workable solution.

The Problem :-
Macintosh computers are not very compatible with Windows devices. They use an operating system called "OSX". OSX can read data from a Windows "NTFS" formatted disk, even error check it, but it can't write to it or repair it unless a utility program that provides NTFS Read & Write ability is installed.

The Solution :-
I use just such a utility, it is available from Paragon Software and costs about $17.00 and gives native Read/Write capability to NTFS formatted volumes.

While you could "Reformat" the portable disk with the OSX Journaling format to make it compatible with Macintosh computers, doing so would wipe all data already on the disk, I'm sure that's not what you want. Using the Paragon NTFS compatibility utility is better in that you would not have to do anything with your portable disk so you would not lose any data already on It, instead it would just give your Mac the same native Read/Write capability that Windows uses thereby making your portable disk Read/Write compatible with both Macintosh and Windows computers. A far better solution.

That's only one of the many possible compatibility problems that could be causing the problem, most problems like this can be resolved by providing me with more information would with allow a more accurate diagnosis.

Here are three ways:
1. If on the same network, create a smb share on the macintosh, map the share on the windows system.

I have and I mac and I cannot run any exe files!!


Files with the suffix ".exe" are executable only under the Windows operating system. If you have an Intel iMac you can run Parallels software and actually install Windows side by side with the Mac OS and then be able to run ".exe" files in their native environment. Generally, downloadable program files for Macintosh have a ".dmg" suffix which is a disk image file which contains the actual program. After mounting the disk image on the desktop (by double-clicking) you can then copy the program file inside it directly to your hard drive via click&drag and then run it from the hard drive.

Try holding down ALT while booting up and select Macintosh HD. If that doesn't work try inserting your mac osx install CD or DVD restart hold down ALT.

If there are you need to get it fixed or replaced. If none of this works you will need to buy a 8.1gb pen drive mac osx 10.6 update ($30 USD) then follow the instructions from http://www.maciverse.com/installing-snow-leopard-onto-an-external-hard-drive.html to create a temporary start up disk. Then go to your old Hard Drive Macintosh HD (should be on the desktop) and copy/backup important files and then turn off and get a new hard drive try Ebay and ask if it will fit your macbook by using your model number found under your battery. Find instructions for install or take the hard drive to a pc shop and ask for them to switch them over. If they don't copy your old files you will need to do a fresh install with your mac osx cd/dvd.
Note: You can use the pendrive as a temporary for as long as you want, to select it hold down ALT at startup and select the disk thats not macintosh hd or a cd/dvd. If you can't find an 8.1gb pen drive get a 16gb pendrive. sorry about the URL the link button wasn't working for some reason

Can't download my video files from xacti e2 to my computer


TRANSFERRING RECORDED IMAGES AND VIDEOS FROM YOUR VPCT700 DIGITAL CAMERA TO YOUR COMPUTER

Connecting the Camera to Your Computer
1. Connect one end of the USB cable to the PC/AV terminal of the camera.
2. Connect the other end of the USB cable to an available USB port on your computer.
3. Turn on your camera.
-The [USB] screen appears.
4. Select [PC] with the Up and Down Arrow buttons, and press the SET button.
5. From the Windows desktop, double click on “My Computer”.
6. Look for a new “Removable disk” icon. This “Removable disk” is actually the memory card in your camera. Typically, the camera will be assigned drive letter “E” or higher.
7. Double click on the removable disk and locate the DCIM folder.
8. Double click on the DCIM folder to open it to find more folders.
-Your recorded images and video clips will be inside these folders.
-Copy & Paste or Drag-N-Drop image and video files to a folder on your computer.

Mac users: Double-click the “untitled” or “unlabeled” disk drive icon on our desktop. iPhoto may automatically launch.


Downloading images and Video Files
When the camera is turned on and connected to your computer, it is considered to be a disk drive, just like a floppy disk or CD. You can download (transfer) images by copying them from the “Removable disk” (“untitled” or “unlabeled” disk on a Macintosh) to your computer hard drive.

Windows
Open the “removable disk” and subsequent folders by double clicking on them. Your images are inside these folder(s). Select the images that you want, and then choose “Copy” from the “Edit” menu. Open the destination location (folder) and choose “Paste” from the “Edit” menu. You may also drag and drop image files from the camera to a desired location.

Macintosh
Open the “untitled” disk icon, and the destination location on your hard disk. Drag and drop from the camera to the desired destination.

NOTE
- Memory card users may prefer to use a memory card reader (highly Recommended).
- Video playback application is not included with the package. Make sure that video playback application has been installed in your computer.
