SOURCE: Lexmark X7350 Scan feature

well you are able to scan multiple documents.. but the file size is more.. the way lexmark software writes the pdf file.. the file will be huge for PDF... but not sure if this is a case with any other all in one manufacturer like HP also... but i would assume it would be the same.. so scan the file to MS WORD or any other application that supports multiple pages... so u have it as one file... but if u want only pdf files, then u have to do a little work around like writing the MS WORD Document to pdf format. If the PDF Writer is not installed with your copy of MSWORD then try any free pdf writer software available on the internet.

SOURCE: driver problem

Hi Vicient,

I have the following questions to evaluate the problem.
1) What's the port your harddrive supported? Is it standart IDE cable or SATA.

I have a hardrive utility software that can detect and access any type of harddrive but you need install it at running windows.

Please email and dont forget to used the subject "Driver Problem" if sound interesting for you.

You don't need any specific software for Windows 2000 or above - the operating system will have the correct drivers built-in.

It should mount either on FireWire or USB (depends on which version you have - there's also a combo version).

If you're connecting via FireWire, you will need to make sure you are using a powered 6-pin FireWire connection. If your computer only has a 4-pin FireWire port, it won't provide power to the drive, so the drive won't spin up, and the system won't see it.

If you're connecting via USB, make sure you're connected to a USB 2.0 port. If you're connecting to USB 1.1, you need to connect both USB connectors on the supplied USB cable to the PC. One connector is data+power, and the other connector (the one that "branches off") is just power.

Check whether the device appears in Device Manager (hit Windows-Pause, or right-click My Computer go to Properties, Hardware, then click Device Manager).

It should appear as a hard disk drive.

Since your friend was using it on a Mac, it might be formatted as a Mac volume so Windows won't mount it as a drive letter.
Right-click My Computer, go to Manage, then click Disk Management. Either a window will pop up and ask you about initializing the disk, or an additional disk with "Unknown parititon" will appear as Removable Disk. Whatever you do, do not mess with any of the disk blocks with drive letters, especially C: as that's your system drive.

The easier method may simply be to ask your friend for format the disk as FAT32 for you. Then it'll mount in Windows and you can format it as NTFS if you need to.

I have a micronet data dock 7000 with 5 70 gig drives. In disk utility only 3 show up... can I use a recovery service to get my data back?

The best thing/place that I know of is not free, but their data recovery work is amazing...

I have used Asoftech data recovery for hard drive data recovery for about 20 years, and they have never failed me...including the one time a disgruntled employee deleted everything and then formatted the hard drive. Asoftech was able to recover 95%+ of the wiped data within 24 hours of getting the drive.

Lost memory. Every time my son starts up a game it states that

the 80gb you refer to is the hard drive connected to the top of the unit.

an xbox 360 has checks to detect a fault drive so should tell you if theres a problem with it.

make sure it is properly connected, it hooks under a lip at the back and connects downwards at the front.

my understanding is that if you do not have other drives in a raid configuration you do not need the raid driver loaded ,have your hard drive plugged into the first sata slot, then format the hard drive ,instal o/s and all should be good.

hope this is of help

Micronet DataDock 7000 alarm

If this is a RAID array, it means that one of the drives has failed. This condition is usually also indicated by LEDs on the front panel. Use the diagnostic utilities that came with the unit or Windows Storage Manager to determine which drive needs replacing.

Loading Itunes folder

When you move files that Itunes is using you need to take them off your playlist and re add them. Some of the files you son may have downloaded and they should still transfer to that location you will just need to re-import them after you move them to that new hard drive. You may have to recreate your playlist but all your files should transfer to that drive. I would recommend you using NTFS for the file format. You also have to remember that the transferring of those files to the Ipod will be slower then when it was on the internal drive. It has to go through the USB connections twice.

Lacie mobile external hard drive

Not sure if you meant "My Computer". You should see the drive there. Did you see you the computer install the drive when you hooked it up? You may need to unplug it then hook it back up so the computer can find and install any drivers. Let me know, Tim
