    I just bought a new HP desktop with Vista 64-bit. I plugged in the OWC Mercury Elite Pro external hard drive and the computer does not see it at all. I tried to manually add it, but I am unable to. I do not want to reformat this disk since it holds alot of data that I cannot afford to lose.

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

I am going to need more information before I can help. Are you trying to install Windows 2000? Are you trying to install internal hardware, external hardware? What type of hardware is it? This information is needed for me to solve your problem.

All the Best,

Hi bobmater, Opening the hard disk will usually do nothing but break it more. So before you even start, understand that you will need to buy a new disk. That aside, you should look for screws that are hidden underneath stickers (most likely saying "warranty void if removed"). If you do end up taking it apart completely, keep the magnets that you find inside. They are super strong and super fun to play with :) Good luck!

Please, how do I install my flatbed mercury scanner 1200cu+. I cant find my installations disk

I found an Windows XP driver here: The documentation for the Mercury KOB 1200cu+ scanner indicates support for Win 98se/Me/2000/XP. On a newer Windows OS, it may not work but you can try and see if a generic scanner driver installs when you plug it into the computer. If it is recognized, scan using Windows Fax and Scan (File, Import from Scanner) or Paint (Import from Camera or Scanner).

I hope this helps.

I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro 4600. The DVD drive has stopped working, It works correctly with a lens cleaner disc. but when I try any other disc I get the following message '' windows cannot read from...

Load a CD in the drive then go to My Computer and right click on the drive letter. Now click on explore and see if it opens the folders on the CD. If it can not read the CD files then you may need to replace the drive. Check that the driver is properly loaded and windows recognized the drive properly. Control Panel-System-Hardware-Device Manager then select the CD Drive to see the status of the driver. If it has an error you may need to replace the driver. Another thing to do is go into the Bios setup when starting the computer and see if the Drive is recognized properly. While you are in the Device Manager look at the tab for "Region" which should be set for Region 1. If it is not set for 1 it would cause this problem. Good Luck

Flash drive isn't being recognized need to back up


Regarding on your problem, in windows xp and up version of windows operating system, plug and play device is easy and no need to install its drivers manually cause the computer will automatically install its drivers. But in the case of Windows 98 you have to install your USB Driver manually in order to be recognize by the system. So my recommendation please insert the CD driver or load the driver of your USB and run the setup.exe to install the USB Driver.

No System Tray Blue Tooth Icon

The GBU321 installation software that comes with the CD was the problem. Called their tech service who made me uninstall the BlueTooth Drivers that the CD and Windows 2000 installed first, and then "directly" download and install the BROADCOM drivers. The adapter works very well now. Thanks.

Inability to recognize Kingston pendrive in windows98

Windows 98 is not capable of recornizing the mass storage devices, but windows 2000 and XP, vista has the capability to automatically recognize the USB mass storage devices.

Thats why your Windows 98 is not recognizing. So, to use the mass-storage device like your pen drive you have to install device driver to your windows 98 system for your pendrive.

If you don't have the driver, then goto pendrive manufacturer site, there you can found the driver for your pen-drive for windows 98, download it, and install on your windows 98 system..... n njoy,,... :))
