SOURCE: Original sync worked all others failed with 650 and Outlook 2003

I was ready to give up completely. Uninstalled, reinstalled, nothing worked. Here is what I did to resolve sync errors: 1. Perform a hard reset on the Palm 2. Go to the Palmone folder on your hard drive (C:\Program Files|PalmOne. Look for the Backup folder. Rename this folder Backup Old. 3. Connect the Treo to your computer. 4. Right click the Hotsync icon in the taskbar and click Custom. Change the four Outlook conduits (Calendar, Contacts,Tasks,Memos) to Desktop overwrites Handheld. 5. Run a Hotsync with the Treo. It should sync without errors. If you need to install additional applications you can add them now. This worked for me. I hope it helps with your errors.

SOURCE: 10657 error code

I got the solution to this problem at the Genius Bar.
As they explained it, Time Machine is software that saves files on the backup drive in a format that can only be read by Time Machine. So, when you open Time Machine, you can click on any file and it will open.
If you try to open a file directly from the backup drive, it needs a program to open it, and if Time Machine is not open, you get the error message.

If your computer crashes, when you get it fixed (or get a new Mac)and when you connect the backup drive, Time Machine will recognize it, will ask you if you want to associate it with your computer, and when you say yes, all your backed-up files are availabel and copied back into the computer.

IO error


The message "The Request Could Not Be Performed Because of an I/O Device Error" appears when Windows is unable to read the data on a storage device.


If this error message appears when attempting to access the files on an input/output

(I/O or IO) device, such as an external hard drive, the file system on the drive could be damaged, the drive could be infected with a virus or the data connector inside the device enclosure could have come loose.


If troubleshooting the drive fails to fix the IO device error, formatting the drive might repair the device.

Connect the external hard drive to the computer.


Run an antivirus program.


Click the "Scan" tab or button, then click "Custom."

Uncheck all items in the list except for the drive letter assigned to the external drive.


Click "OK." Click "Scan" or "Scan Now" to run a virus scan on the hard drive.

Quarantine or remove any infections the virus scanner detects.


Click "Start." Input "cmd.exe" into the search field.

Press "Enter" to open Command Prompt. Input "chkdsk <drive>: /f /r" into Command Prompt.


Replace "<drive>" with the letter assigned to your external hard drive.

Press "Enter" to run CheckDisk on the drive.


CheckDisk will search for and repair detected errors or bad sectors.


Burn the files on the external hard drive to a set of DVDs or move the files to another drive, if possible.

If the IO device error reappears when attempting to move the files, disconnect the external hard drive from the computer.


Remove the power adapter from the drive.

Check the documentation included with the drive for instructions to take the drive apart.


If no instructions are available, contact the manufacturer for instructions or find out if disassembling the drive will void the drive's warranty.


Remove the screws securing the faceplate to the drive or from the edge of the enclosure. Insert the edge of a small, flathead screwdriver in between either side of the enclosure to wedge both sides apart.


Check the connections to the drive.

Confirm that the IDE or SATA interface is plugged into the back of the drive.


Reassemble the external hard drive, reconnect the power adapter and reconnect the drive to the PC.


Attempt to access the files on the drive.

If the IO device error reappears, return to Command Prompt. Input "format /fs:fat32 <drive>:" into the command-line prompt.


Replace "<drive>" with the letter assigned to the external hard drive.


Press "y" when the message "Proceed with Format (Y/N)?" appears.

The process will format the drive, erasing all data on the disk.


If the drive still fails to function after format, you will need to replace the drive.


Hope this helps

I have the Lacie Minidisk Ethernet 500 GB that contains all my house PC backup. I both an USB Minidisk Lacie (1 GB) in order to use MySafe feature but it never worked.


Hello Elio,

Use MySafe to back up the files stored on the Ethernet Disk mini Home to an attached USB storage device. This way, if files on the Ethernet Disk mini are damaged or accidentally deleted, you can restore them to their original locations.
There are three main steps to using MySafe,Connecting an external USB hard drive,Backing up files to the external USB hard drive,Restoring files to the Ethernet Disk mini (if necessary)
Before you can back up files, you need to connect a hard drive to your Ethernet Disk mini via the USB port on the back. Use a hard drive that is USB 2.0 compatible.
While connecting an external hard drive make sure your Ethernet Disk mini is turned on and connected to your network.Turn on the external USB hard drive.Connect the external hard drive's USB cable to the USB port on the back of the Ethernet Disk mini, just like you would connect the external hard drive to your computer.Confirm that the drive is properly connected. Log in and click on the Administer HipServ link. Click on USB External Storage under System.
To back up files, navigate to the file or folder you want to back up to the external hard drive and click on the disk icon in the "Backup" column of the file list.When you back up files to MySafe, the Ethernet Disk mini duplicates the file path in MySafe so that everything you back up is organized in MySafe just as in its original location. So, if you copy a file from MyLibrary, a MyLibrary folder will appear in MySafe, with all folders leading to the backed up file.

Always click the Safely Remove Drive button on the USB External Storage before unplugging your MySafe external hard drive. Wait for the interface to change and for the Use Drive button to appear before disconnecting the USB cable from the Ethernet Disk mini. Failure to safely remove your external hard drive before disconnecting the USB cable can cause data loss and/or damage the drive. Always use the Safely Remove Drive feature when disconnecting an external hard drive.

Files disappeared from maxtor one touch iii mini


Alrighty, I finally found the handy file undelete utility which I have successfully used in the past to undelete files on flash cards. The file is Restoration.exe, and it doesn't use an installer. Thus it is a completely stand-alone program. The author of this program says that it is compatible with all Windows OS through XP. It probably will work with Vista too. The program also is compatible with NTFS as well as FAT32 file systems. Here is a link to CNET.com where you can download it and then use it to try to recover the deleted files on your flash card:

Restoration

Once you have recovered the files on your flash card, copy and paste them to your hard disk. I never do cut and pastes from flash cards for fear of accidentally losing files. Copy and paste, and once you have verified that the files were successfully copied to your hard disk, then delete the files on your flash card if that is your preferred method. Yet I prefer to put the flash card back in my camera and then do a quick format of the card in order to delete all files on the flash card.

Anyway, hopefully this restoration utility will allow you to get those deleted images back. :-)

Copied files disappeared as soon as they were copied over


Did you try to copy one picture file to your mini harddrive then change it properties to archieve only? After that you can rotate it freely without that annoying message.

If that does not go as expected. Could be virus infection. Both your miniharddrive and your computer is infected. Some do it by changing it properties to read only then hide it.

You should first start disinfecting. The files can be view by clicking tools in My computer then set to view hidden files then start exploring your minihard drive. Some infection only affects picture files.

Just for the thought.

Recovery of content on DVR-625 hard drive


usually hard drive failure boils down to files not opening succesfully, or a random internal failure, not a physical issue with the hard drive, however because dish network repairs these issues on a large scale the fix is to wipe the software and start over which means all recordings are lost, unfortunately recovering these recordings is basically impossible... if you often record things which are imperative to your business i would suggest getting a 622/722 dvr which will allow you to download these recordings to an external hard drive via usb, you will have unlimited use uploading and downloading programs for a one time fee of about 40$

Can't open HDD drive


Hi
1. Start > Run > type in cmd then click OK to get a command prompt.
2. Type in chkdsk e: /r (replace e: with the drive letter of your external hard drive).

This won't do any harm, it will fix errors on the disk and try to recover data from bad sectors. It might not solve the problem but it's worth a try. Jyo

Unable to open backed-up files. Error code 10657


I got error code 10657 when I tried to open a file in Finder on the external drive that I had used for a Time Machine backup before I reformatted the hard drive of my MacBook. When I started Time Machine on the MacBook (with Leopard reinstalled) and went to the backup date that held the desired file, I was told that I needed to recreate the containing folder (or choose another location for the restore). I chose recreate the folder, and the restored file was available in the new folder without any further problem.
