I would say any external hard drive would do the trick, although my preference runs to the Fujitsu family. try this one Fujitsu RE25U300J 2.5" External Hard Drive.

Hello, well you could just buy a normal external harddrive and if you have windows XP then it already has a backup setting which can be enabled. It can automatically back information up weekly, monthly or even daily. see this page http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/setup/learnmore/bott_03july14.mspx

Is it safe to store food in plastic bags?


If the food isn't liquid and has to be stored for a short period of time, food-storage plastic bags like Ziploc can be very useful. However, most bags tend to rip easily and leak, and since they are disposable, on the long run they add up to a considerable amount, while hard glass or plastic containers and be washed and reused several times and can be purchased in all kinds of shapes and sizes, to fulfill every need.

Can a self storage owner keep items inside a unit if the bill is not paid?


As troubling as it may be, the storage owner may dispose of your property in any way they like. They can sell it as a whole, in batches or in individual pieces or they can dispose of it entirely. In Houston TX, I own & operate a storage auction information website. We actually call over 1400 storage facilities bi monthly. Every facility has their own way of clearing the rental space. Most prefer auctions because 1. Cash is king and auctions are a good way to recover losses from delinquent tenants & 2. They get to have someone else clean out the unit. Some other facility owners that I have spoken with are quite creative in dealing with these situations. A lot of the facility managers will try to work out a settlement before the unit is foreclosed on. Once foreclosed on, some owners actually just give the unit away to anyone who is willing to haul it off, others have a list of buyers who give the owner a private bid. Some owners will just haul it all to the dump. I have spoken with several managers who actually have garage sales and sell each item individually. Believe it or not I have spoken with many storage facilities that claim to have a perfect payment record and haven't needed to have an auction in years when most other facilities have at least 2 tenants in default every month. It makes me wonder what is really going on. In most cases though, the facility owners and managers are good, trustworthy people. They aren't in the resale business, they just want their rent. I hope this has been helpful. And you will get more information in here about self storage mississauga.

When iopen my google chrome it says it change its location but where


Sounds like your default settings are with another computer.This might help: http://www.google.com/support/chrome/bin/answer.py?answer=142065

If you allow Google Chrome to share your location with a site, the browser will send local network information to Google Location Services to get an estimate of your location. The browser can then share your location with the requesting site. The local network information used by Google Location Services to estimate your location includes information about visible WiFi access points, including their signal strength; information about your local router; your computer's IP address. The accuracy and coverage of Google Location Services will vary by location.
Google Chrome saves your location information so that it can be easily retrieved. This information is periodically updated; the frequency of updates depends on changes to your local network information.

I want to register my GPS Nuvi 255 WT that I bought at Christmas time, I havent used the unit yet. I didnt get any updates yet. What do I need to do? Thank you


Right now your unit will work right out of the box. If you want to register the unit with Garmin, then there should be a card inside, or directions for online registration. As for updates, maps will be updated every year, with firmware updates periodically added. For the first 5 years of owning your gps, I wouldn't recommend paying the map update fee, as they often contain very little new information. They mainly encompass new developments, etc.Lastly, be sure to enjoy your Garmin, its one of the best car gps devices on the market.

Just bought the BD-C5500 model and set it all up but when i try to play a blu ray disc i get a message saying "your blu-ray player requires an update in order to play this disc.... Why would a brand new...


Bluray players have to be updated periodically because they are a technology in progress.
The good thing about bluray players is that you can perform the maintenance on them at home yourself and not have to buy a new bluray player when the content in the discs are changed. You can also take the unit to a Best Buy and a member of the Geek squad will do it for you for a charge.
This is the link to the update file.
http://www.samsung.com/us/consumer/tv-video/blu-ray/blu-ray-players/BD-C5500/XAA/index.idx?pagetype=prd_detail&tab=support
Click on the "Support & Downloads" tab and click "Firmware" you will see a .pdf file that contains instructions, The other file is the firmware update that you need.

Unable to find Mass Storage Controller Driver


The mass storage controller is generally for usb devices that you've plugged in. USB keys, memory cards etc.

This kinda falls under the realm of the USB drivers for your mainboard... which if they're working, you don't need to do anything. XP service pack 2 supports USB2 just fine, but service pack 1 will require you to get your manufacturers drivers to get USB2 working at full-speed.

Why do you want to change the default driver anyway??
