Error 8004

Do a Get Info on you hard drive (can just Control Click it and choose Get Info).
Unlock using the Lock Icon at bottom right.
Click the + (plus) bottom left.
Add yourself.
Change the Privilege to 'Read & Write'
Click the gear at the bottom
Choose 'Apply to enclosed Items'
Choose OK when it asks if you really want to do that.

Will run for a few minutes.

If that did not work, use the Disk Utility in the Utilities Menu, near the bottom of Applications.
From there, choose to Repair Permissions on the First Aid tab.

Repair Permissions won't change anything if the Mac thinks you can only Read files, so you have to do the first step above either way.

All the best to you,

Recover deleted items

I suggest you recover all your deleted files and then sort out what you want and then delete the unwanted files before you back up your data.

I accidentally deleted the gmapprom.img file from my nuvi 710. Tried to put it back and was told the is not enough disk space???

It may be because you deleted the file, but it's still in the Recycle Bin (still there taking up space until you clear the Recycle Bin). By your trying to reinstall it, you are essentially adding a second copy and running out of hard disk space. Try double clicking the Recycle Bin and click your image file then click "restore this item". Note however that your almost out of space on your hard drive. Try clearing out the junk. Delete as many file, esp large video and image files, as possible.

Then clear your Recycle Bin and then delete all your temporary Internet files. (In Windows XP it's Start, Control Panel, Internet Options and check Delete. When you get the pop up, check everything you can live without).

Then defrag your hard drive. In Windows XP, open Explorer (right click Start, choose Explorer), goto My Computer, highlight your drive C, right click, choose Properties, click Tools and then "Defragment Now". Could take over an hour if your drive is near full.

Depending on how much you are willing to trash, you could be back in good shape in no time. As a bonus, you should notice your computer running much faster after this.

Computer Running Slow

Okay, you have the same issue I used to have. I inherited a laptop from my mother, and she was the second owner. It was loaded with programs I didn't need, and had a zillion files tucked away. If you can go into your control panel and access the add or remove programs, go through it and remove every stinkin' one of the optional programs you don't ever use, or can do without. Be sure you know what you are removing. Next --and this may sound silly, especially if you have done it already-- you need to go into your homepage in your internet connection and clear all browsing history from every browser you use. These can include google, msn, explorer, firefox, etc. I find if I don't clear my browser frequently, my computer is a real *******. The next obvious step would be to get into all my documents files and delete any old files, such as photos that you don't want, a huge music collection, etc. I have all of my music stored on my D drive, because it has the same memory as my C drive, but is nearly empty. You can store and easily access all your entertainment files in D if you have a large capacity. I would perform this test: from your start menu, open my computer and right click your c, or main hard drive and click on properties. This should give you info on how much storage space you have left on the disc. If it is less than 50 percent, you may need to delete some old trash. Do the same with your d drive. If all else fails, you can go into your recovery program and see if you can wipe the computer, but that is a last resort. I had to do this with mine so I could program it to recognize me as the computer administrator. I was tired of fighting with a zillion hidden files I couldn't get into, much less locate. Hope this will help.

I accidentally deleted a video i had made with my web cam, is there anyway i can get it back? it is not in the recycle bin, and i have tried searching for it, and cannot find it. it was a really important...

This is a tricky problem. There are two cases: 1) You sent it to the Recycle Bin somehow and then cleared the Recycle Bin and 2) It's in some obscure corner of your computer.
So, let's start with the worst case, case 1. Luckily for you, when Windows "permanently" deletes a file, all it does it remove the references to the file and frees up the hard drive space associated with that file. However, it does not actually clear the 0's and 1's on the hard drive (unless another program writes over it in its search for free space). If you've deleted the file recently, chances are the 0's and 1's in the hard drive can be read and the file can be recovered. I personally use Tuneup Utilities, but since that costs money, I would suggest looking at, Undelete Plus, or PC Inspector File Recovery.
If you're in case 2, you have a really high chance of finding the file. For Windows 7 and Vista, open up c:\ and type the filename into the search bar in the top right. If you're on XP, open up windows explorer and run Search.
Hope this helps, Eric Tao

Every time I download a video it stops every few seconds

The cause of your problem is simple: your "cache"
memory & "temporary internet files" are nearly full.
This is especially true if you've been watching lots
of videos or playing a lot of games/music.

If you are experiencing either: A) slugglish loading
and buffering, B) "choppy" videos which frequently
start/stop/start/stop, C) the YouTube dotted circle
looking like it might spin for ever, or D) videos that
will sometimes come to a sudden "stop" or freeze,
that is often a sign that your cache/memory is full
and cannot take anymore.

Exit out of YouTube (but not your browser) and do
one of the steps below. Afterwards, shutdown and
reboot. Not only will this "free up" your computer's
memory, everything will be "fresh", and load faster:

Internet Explorer 6:
→ Tools → Internet Options
→ Delete Cookies → OK
→ Delete Files → OK
→ Clear History → Yes
→ OK

Internet Explorer 7:
→ Tools → Internet Options → Delete...
→ Delete files → Yes
→ Delete cookies → OK
→ Delete history → OK
→ Close (browsing history window)
→ OK

Internet Explorer 8:
→ Tools → Delete Browsing History
[. ] Preserve Favorites (leave blank)
[x] Temporary Internet files
[x] Cookies
[x] History
→ Delete

Mozilla Firefox 3:
→ Tools → Clear Private Data
[x] Browsing History
[x] Download History
[x] Saved Form and Search History
[x] Cache
[x] Cookies
→ Clear Private Data Now
Google Chrome:
→ Tools (wrench) → Clear browsing data...
[x] Clear browsing history
[x] Clear download history
[x] Empty the cache
[x] Delete cookies
Clear data from this period: → Everything
→ Clear Browsing Data

Please rate me if this solution works for you

Thanks......Have a great time.

Clearing the drive so that it is empty

you might have hidden files in it. Select the drive and change the view option for folders to see hidden files. It you still don't seem them and not expecting any important information, try formatting the USB drive to get the full space. Hope this helps.

When logging on error message telling me disk nearly full delete files etc

This message means the hard disk is nearly out of disk space.
Do you regularly do a Disk Cleanup and empty the Recycle Bin? These disk maintenance chores will free up disk-space by removing old temporary and compressed files. Therefore returning disk space for further use.
To do a Disk Cleanup follow these steps. This can take hours to complete, it depends upon the size of the hard disk especially if it has not been done before.
Click on My Computer - right click on the C drive and click on the Disk Cleanup button. After it analyzes the hard disk then click all the boxes to recover the maximum disk space, click OK then YES to perform these actions.
