You will have to create a backup of the files you need. you can use programs to create an image or backup of specific files /folder or directories to an external storage before proceeding to reformat the drive. In the future, you may want to creat at least 2 partition of your hard drive, 1 for the OS and 1 for data so even if you need to reinstall Windows, your data is not affected unless a complete reformat of the hard drive will be done

Outlook Express restore emails


Try downloading Firefox's Thunderbird which should be able to open them and convert them to a pst file. There is a converter called DBXTriever you can download as well, although I have no experience with that product (so cannot recommend).

I transferred a file onto a SanDisk and it shows up on the disk on that computer but when I insert the disk into the computer I want to copy the file to it says This folder is empty. I don't get i


What operating system is on the computer you copied the file from, the computer it's going to? Did you encrypt the flash drive? Example: if you have the drive formatted for HF+ on a Apple you won't be able to see it on a Windows box without a little help. If this is the case, plug the drive in the Windows computer format it as NTFS. Plug it back into the Apple, Apple can see NTFS, copy the file to flash drive, plug into win comp and it will see it.

Update file on garmin corrupted


Same happened to my Garmin Nuvi 760, power failed during upload. Files corrupted. Garmin could not locate it with Sat. Told me to trash it and they would give me $70 towards purchase of a new one, which would not fit in my cars receiver. My solution was to purchase a used one that had a good Garmin File folder. I copied the folder to my pc. It was important to remove the device file from the copied folder. I then formatted my corrupted 760. Then copied the folder from my pc into the formatted 760. Next step was to use Garmin Express to replace the missing device file, do the updates, and reinstall the maps. Product code to unlock maps was inside the rear plastic housing to unlock the maps. Whole process took about 4 hours and it works like new now.

If you can access your computer with a temporary user account, you can simply replace the "hal.dll". You can find this file in all windows computers (win xp to win 7), simply copy the file from another computer save it on a flash drive and paste it in the folder C: > Windows > System 32 and paste it. The steps are as follows, open "My Computer", double click "C:" drive, again open "Windows" folder and then again open "System32" folder and paste the file there. Restart your computer and it'll work fine.

Or you can download the "hal.dll" file here.click here. (I've uploaded it for you). Open the link and click "Download Now", wait for 20 seconds and again click "Download File Now" link (purple link).

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

How do i download pics from comp to disk


Hi,
  1. Insert a writeable CD or DVD into your computer's CD or DVD recorder.
  2. In the dialog box that appears, click Burn files to data disc.
  3. In the Burn a Disc dialog box, type a name for this disc, and then click Next.
    It might take several minutes for the disc to be formatted in the default Live File System format. When the formatting is complete, an empty disc folder opens.
  4. Open the folder that contains the files you want to burn, and then drag the files into the empty disc folder.

    cdb4d559-8825-47a1-8175-79020965d91c.pngYou can copy files to the disc folder by dragging them to the disc icon or to an open disc folder As you drag files into the disc folder, they are copied automatically to the disc.

But I recommend you to use any CD or DVD burning software like Nero, BurnAware etc. There are lots of free burning tools available on Internet too.

Why I recommend third party software is because you can select burn speed plus minimum disc burning error.

Make sure the image file is in JPG format, or the player won't be able to read it.

For users running Windows XP with Service Pack 1 and above:
With your device connected to your computer, click on My Computer and then click on the icon for your device. If you see a folder labeled DATA, you must copy the photo files you want to view directly into this folder. Folders containing photos cannot be copied to the DATA folder. Photo files must be copied directly to the DATA folder using no other folder.
If you do not see a folder labeled DATA, then copy the photo files you want to view directly to the device. Folders containing photos cannot be copied to the DATA folder.

Player doesn't display some files


where did you get the songs from? make sure the files are in mp3 file format not in another format and make sure they are playing properly before transferring them to the player. The player can support MP3 and WMA files. IF you are sure they are mp3 format the player using USB mode and then retransfer them to the player.
