Hi holly21831;
you may try it on another pc,just to see if you get the same problem, it may be a faulty USB but try it out first.

How do I transfer pictures from a computor that wont write to cd/dvd


If they are on a network, share the folder the pictures are in. The other computer can access the share and you can copy the pictures.

Another way is by using an external USB hard drive. Connect the drive and copy the pictures onto it. Then connect the drive to the other computer and copy them to it.

Or purchase a new DVD-RW drive and regain the ability to write CDs and DVDs.

When uploading pictures from my cameras SD card the computer suggests using a hi-speed USB port. I have tried the other ports and it tells me the same thing. Which port is the High speed? Dell Dimension...


you have no high speed ports installed on your computer. what you have is USB 1.0. you can however purchase a high speed USB pci card (usb 2.0) and install it in your computer to get faster transfer speeds.

ACER Aspire L100 Desktop is dead?


If the hard drive is OK then you can remove the hard drive from the desktop case, and insert the hard drive into a USB 3 1/2" hard drive adapter case, this should come with a power adapter. These are available at your friendly computer shop.
Boot up the laptop then plug this USB hard drive adapter into the laptop's USB port. The laptop will see this as an external USB hard drive. You can open the various folders and files on this external drive and copy the folders and files to the laptop.
You can delete the Windows folder and Program Folders on this external drive to free up disk space and use this as a back up drive etc.
If you are not sure how to remove the hard drive and install it into an USB hard disk case, then I suggest you get a computer savy friend to help you.

I just bought a PNY 4 GB High speed usb 2.0 drive I would like to put my pictures on it how do I do it? from my computer.


Insert the USB drive into any USB port of your computer. When you do, you should see a window pop up that asks what you would like to do now. Click the option to browse the files. You should now have a window open for your USB drive. Next, open up my computer and find your pictures on your hard drive. Once you have found them, you can click and drag the pictures from the hard drive window to the USB drive window. Do this as necessary for any or all the pictures.

I want to transfer data from my dial-up desktop, to my new laptop high-speed broadband. How?


Several ways:
1.) 4GB flash drive
2.) External USB drive (320GB or more)
3.) Burn CD or DVD on the desktop and copy to the laptop
4.) Connect them in a local or ad hoc network (not too easy)
I'm sure other expers will have more ideas...

Anyway, at the desktop, run the "Files and Settings Transfer Wizard" to gather your desktop info, such as favorites, desktop icons, My Documents, etc:
[Start]
[All Programs]
[Accessories]
[System Tools]
[Files and Transfer Wizard] [Next]
At the desktop, answwer [Old Computer] [Next]
Cintinue to answer the questions
If you have a lot of music or loots of pictures, then just transfer the "Settings Only".

After a successful transfer of the settings, run the wizard again and transfer your "Data Only"

Hope this gets you started.

Transfer all files from my old desktop to new laptop


you can do that by following the steps below;
Instructions
  1. Step 1 Connect your laptop to your desktop through a home network connection. If you have a home network, you can hook up your laptop to it via an Ethernet cable or a wireless network card. Then, you can set a folder on your desktop computer to be shared across the network. To set a folder as shared in Windows, simply right click on it, select "Sharing and security," select the "Share" tab and check the box labeled "Share this folder on the network." You will then be able to access this folder from your laptop and transfer files to your.hard drive.
  2. Step 2 Purchase a USB jump drive. These handy devices are the size of a key but can store five gigabytes of files or even more, depending on the type of USB jump drive you buy. Insert the USB jump drive into your USB port and your operating system should find it as new hardware. If a window doesn't automatically come up, you can find in your drives under "My Computer." Then, you can click and drag files into it, remove the drive and take it to your desktop computer and access the files there.
  3. Step 3 Put your files onto another external storage device, such a CD, floppy disk or external hard drive. Files are transferable between any computers as long as you can store them on something external, then use that external device to move them to the other computer.
  4. Step 4 Email files to yourself. If you only have a few files that you would like to transfer and don't have any of the equipment used in Steps 1 through 3, send yourself an email with the files attached, access your email from the other computer and download the files to your hard drive.

G'Day! I have a Transcend 2 GB USB stick. Whenever I connect it to my computer or any other computer, I get this error message ''THIS USB DEVICE CAN PERFORM FASTER IF YOU CONNNECT IT TO HIGH SPEED USB 2.0...


Yes. The problem is you don't have usb 2.0 ports on your motherboard. Its the second generation usb port. So if you want to upgrade you can buy additional hardware to upgrade this. But your motherboard has to be compatible with that additional peripheral too. As an example buses of your motherboard. So you have to check that also when you purchase. This is not a problem. The only thing is it will reduce the efficiency of your pen drive (Access time etc.). Other usb sticks you have may be usb 1.1 devices.

If this is helpful to you, please rate this .
Thanks.

If you have your music and pictures on one hard drive, and transfer it to the external hard drive connected by usb:

1) Connect external hard drive

2) Select the files you want to move.

3) Right click on one of them, and choose cut.

4) Go into the external drive, and choose paste. (They will start to move over.

5) To see pictures, you will right click in the picture folder and choose view. Select large icons. That should work. Also you could choose view from the top, and select pictures.
