I have a Maxwell external drive. I think its 8G. I can't get to my files on the drive


your external drive should have a USB plug , even with the limitations (kidding!) of win 8 Usb devices should auto sync when connected , try going to m-softs web site and down load there universal driver for windows 8 for USB this should get you to connect with the usb remote device (it may take up to five minutes for system to auto notice that a usb device as been connected then it will need to install its driver this takes only about 30 seconds then you should be able to view its files using win file explorer

Your computer will copy the backup of the hard drive of your computer's hard drive when you're online.

Western Digitial Passport Sync Software


WARNING: Do not think that theyourWD Passport, using the WD Sync software, is a backup drive; it is NOT !

As per the documentation with this device:
"synchronization software is intended to synchronize the data from a computer to the drive (WD Passport) and SHOULD NOT be used as backup software. To use this software properly, we advise that you do not wipe or
erase the data from the internal hard drive (computer) and resynchronize, as this will cause the data that WD Sync stored to the Passport to be deleted."

This is why you are hearing so many people saying that they are deleting the WD Sync software, reformatting, and using the WC Passport as a true backup drive where you can actually see the files that you are backing up, rather
than a bunch of unrecognizable sync files that likely don't have all the files that you thought you "backed up".

Can i transfer my pictures from the gallery on my tablet to a flash drive


Yes, but it takes several steps to transfer pics from your tablet to a flash drive.

There are two ways of accessing tablet files: 1) wireless access which requires a sync app on your tablet and PC software of the same app type. One such app for sync between Android (any) to/from PC software is Cheetah Sync: http://www.jrtstudio.com/cheetah-sync-android-wireless-sync.

Alternatively, you can use ES File Explorer's Network/LAN/Cloud/FTP functions to share files between your Android phone/tablet and your PC via secure Wifi: http://www.cnet.com/how-to/share-files-between-android-and-windows-with-es-file-explorer/

or 2) wired via the USB charging cable, which I will explain in more detail:

Plug your table to your PC using the Samsung charger cable that doubles as a data transfer cable when you remove the USB plug from the wall charger cube and plug it to the USB port on your PC.
Your PC should read your tablet as an external drive: Open "My Computer" and double-click the tablet drive icon>search your subfolders for your pictures. Highlight your picture files and either copy and paste or drag and drop (different way of copy/paste) to your desktop (or desired location), copies will be transferred but not moved from the tablet unless you "cut and paste" from your table to PC to clear out your tablet and make more space. When done, unplug your tablet cable from the PC. Plug in your flash drive to the available USB port: access the flash drive icon on My Computer. Drag and drop or copy and paste picture files to your flash drive.

My WD wants to install syn software. None of the files look like the files originally pulled for backup. My hard drive crashed and I need to restore to a new Hard drive - what do I do?


When you connect the drive, ignore the sync option. Do note in your "my computer" WD will have two drive letters (one is a read only drive) that contains the sync software. The other drive letter will be where you data is stored. If you used the sync software to backup your files; you need to install to get your data back. If you simply copied your data from one drive to another; the files should be there in their original form.

Why did my Mp3 Player Add/Delete a File I Didn't Want? Manual vs. Automatic...


Why did my Mp3 Player Add/Delete a File I Didn't Want? Manual vs. Automatic Synchronization in Windows Media Player

by Tha Mp3 Doctor

The difference between manual and automatic synchronization is very important. If you’re ever wondering why you computer added files to your device when you didn’t want it to, or why it deleted files unexpectedly, then there is a good chance that you have automatic synchronization activated. Manual synchronization allows you to only add/delete only those files that you want to keep or discard.

To disable auto-sync in Windows Media Player 10:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/knowledgecenter/howto/sync_how_to.aspx

To disable auto-sync in Windows Media Player 11:

My Directions:

1. Connect your mp3 player to the computer

2. Open Windows Media Player

3. Run the mouse cursor over the Sync tab – a little black arrow should appear under the word “Sync”

4. Click on the little arrow and a drop-down menu should appear

5. Select “Set Up Sync” in the drop-down menu

6. Uncheck the box that says “Sync this device automatically”

Microsoft’s Directions:

There are many good outside websites out there – many with videos on how to do everything we have described in these pages. Hopefully, this will give many of you a start into the wonderful world of music transfer through mp3 players and Windows Media Player.

After i plugged it into the computer the only options i get are transfer files from windows media player and no action, what can i do to transfer the songs to the mp3


Select "No Action," to avoid accidentally setting up Auto-Sync (undesirable). Then open up Windows Media Player, and use the Sync tab to transfer the songs to your Sansa. It may sound crazy, but doing it in the way I suggest will allow you to sync songs manually instead of automatically. Auto-sync will add files that you do not want into your mp3 player. Manual sync allows you to choose which songs you add to the mp3 player.

Help!! My gogo gear keep deleteing by music oof


Disable auto-sync in Windows Media Player to solve the problem.

Disable Auto-Sync in Windows Media Player 11 – go to Microsoft's website for pictorial demonstration

Major Symptom: The Mp3 player is adding (or deleting) songs that I don’t want onto the player

Major Solution:
Open Windows Media Player WITH the mp3 player connected
Move the mouse cursor over to the Sync tab
Click on the tiny black arrow underneath the word “Sync” to bring down a drop-down menu
Select Set Up Sync (this option will not appear if your mp3 player is not connected to the computer)
Uncheck box that says "automatically sync files to device"
Click OK to finish

Voila! You are now set up for manual sync instead of auto-sync.
