SOURCE: WD My Book Essential -- Can't find drivers

It should not really need drivers in Win2K or Vista, you might have a problem with your USB drivers. Go into device manager, remove any devices under the USB heading and reboot. All the drivers should reinstall and hopefully your MyBook will come alive again. Otherwise, try the MyBook on a friend's computer, if it doesn't work there then the MyBook may be faulty itself.

SOURCE: WD Elements 1TB HD freezes Windows and asks me to "insert a disk"

I suspect that your motherboard was not designed to work with this huge drive. How old is your computer? Have you checked the computer manufacturer's website for info on what size hard drives can be used with that model?
You might still be able to use it by installing software called a dynamic drive overlay; check the website of the big drive's manufacturer for software.

Am I doing this wrong?


Yes, for any Apple product, media has to be synced with iTunes. For Sansa you can just transfer it with your Windows Explorer, but not for iPod. Download iTunes, install, connect your iPod. The driver will be installed automatically. Also eject from iTunes and not from Windows.

Trying to add songs from my computer to my ipod using windows media player trying to sync it for music on windows vista well under sync tab it does not reconize the device keeps saying connect a device


iPods connect to your computer via iTunes.
You can download iTunes here free: http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/
All the music files currently in your Windows Media Player can all be transferred into iTunes, so no worries about losing your music.

Hope that helps.

Apple Extreme Network not picked up by Windows XP laptop.


it's a matter of who did what with whom and when they did it.

Vista came along when Apple and Microsoft had agreed to allow each other OS's to operate in each other's platforms with Intel performing the Core Duo marriage, but XP is the child from a previous generation when the two did not get along, though they knew of each other.

I know some actual marriages like that.

Didn't mean to be flippant, but XP is better than Vista in some respects and worse in this case.

Ok when you hook it up and it says MTP just push and hold the Play pause key till it says Usb then it should recognize it .....
now mine recognizes it on both usb and mtp i have win xp pro ...  If you do this and it doesnt work 
If you are using Windows XP or Vista, make sure that the player is in the Media Transfer Protocol (MTP) mode. This can be done by pressing the M button. This button is located on the top of your mp3 player. Open Windows Media Player 10 or 11 and follow the directions for transferring (synchronizing) music. If you have Windows Media Player 9 on your XP machine, upgrade to Windows Media Player 10 or 11. This can be done by visiting www.windowsmediaplayer.com.
If you are using Windows 98SE, Windows ME, or Windows 2000, you will only be able to transfer music using the USB transfer mode. Open Windows Media Player 9, and follow the directions for transferring (synchronizing) music.
If you have version 9 on Windows 98SE or Windows ME, you will need to visit the Download Center for updated drivers.

Dell inspiron 6400/E1505 audio drivers not working.


I can see how vista would screw up drivers through automatic updates. You could not be the 1st.
There are driver cleaners out there.

Make sure you know what chipset you have, probably AC97 and use the driver cleaner to remove it.
Reboot and install the driver from dells web site.

Camera doesnt work


Sorry talhahs, creative has not written Vista compatible driver software for you're PC-Cam 350 camera. Hence you're camera will not function with any version of Vista.
There are few SD readers currently that are compatible with Vista. Click on this link to see one type.

A card reader that will help you in transferring pictures from you’re camera to you’re PC while using Vista.
Win XP, unlike Vista will still run program software even if it has not passed MS's compatability.

Good Luck!

Ilo mp3 player 1g


This player only seems to be able to transfer MP3 format with Vista, using windows media player syne. Unless someone found otherwise.

When using XP Pro and Windows Media Player you can transfer WMA but you have to go into the PROPERTIES of the drive (mine was mp-556/G: drive) and DESELECT the option to transfer folder hierecy. The MP3 player is not able to reconginize the folder structure it usually creates.
