The driver is in the OS if you've installed the OS updates. (Windows, Linux, BSD, SkyOS; all of them.)

Want to get rid of an old computer Should I take out hard drive


Hi,
Best thing to do is download the contents of the hard drive to a external hard drive or Memory stick. If the computer is more then 5 years old then the hard drive will be old type, and will not go into the newer PC.

How do I get all my old info, pics, documents and all stuff saved from my old desk top computer compaq presario 5700n windows 98 second edition so i can put it on my lap top, my flash drive won't work on...


Take the hard drive out and get someone knowledgeable to put it in their system as a slave drive. Then plug your flash drive into their system and copy all the files to it. I'd say this is the fastest and easiest solution to the problem. You could always network it to another computer and transfer the files also.

Bought a 2gig maxell flash pen and wanted to use it for storing my work on it but i cant seem to work it and i need to save my work on this flash pen can some one please help


If you are using Win98 the problem is the USB ports themselves. You must locate and install USB drivers to make them functional. Other than that the USB should reconise the flash pen after a few minutes.
Now if it see it, to store in the drive, Save the information to a file/folder and then right click and choose SEND TO and pick the letter drive that is your flash pen and that will do it. If you can do drag and drop open the window that has your info and open a window that shows your pen drive left click and hold it down a drag it to the pen drive - when you see the + just release the left click and it should be on the pen drive.
Hope this helps you, good luck, please leave a rating, thank you kindly

My PNY 4gb USB pen drive is now showing "This Drive Is Write Protected", after 14 months of trouble free use. I have tried the "Low Level Format" utility on PNY's product support web...


1. restart the computer in safe mode
2. attempt to format ( do not use the flash utilities to do this ) use windows.

I suspect that windows is preventing you from formating the drive.
thats why I'm recommending that you format the drive in safemode


Thank you for choosing FixYa!

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).
