My guess is that the pc is trying to use a drive letter that is already taken. Make sure the drive is plugged in. Goto Start -> run -> type compmgmt.msc and hit enter. Click on disk management. You should see the drive in the list. Right-click the external drive and click change driver letter. choose a letter that is not already taken. that should do it..

Cannot access any other clerk except the first/default on Casio se-c300


It sounds like you are not logging off first. Press 0 CLK# to log off then log a new person on eg 3 CLK# for Jane.

you need to clean your registry sometimes. uniblue registry booster works well. you can get it free from btjunkie.org and register it cause if you dont it wont fix ALL the errors just some. btw... you have to have utorrent or the like to dl it from btjunkie. it is a torrent. if that dont work then you might need to restore factory settings:(

My iomega 250gb external hard drive will not open because of an inpage operation can anyone help???...


I am sure that you have unplugged the external drive and tried it again. Have you tried it on a different system? You can install the drivers to another computer and see if that will resolve the issue. If it does, you will need to uninstall the current drivers on your PC and then reinstall them. Does this Iomega have a bus connection. Not all bus connections load the driver automatically. You may have to go to Iomega website and get the driver. Then you just have to get rid of the one that you have (may be corrupted) and install this one.

Hope this helps you solve your issue.

Your computer is a good one, so is Roxio a good software. but it seems like a compatability problem. Roxio likes Vista, but does windows like Roxio? I would run a compatability test, windows will do it free.

I am trying to install an old iomega 100mb zip drive onto my computer which doesn't have the necessary connection.


it's "old" technology on a new computer.

You can probably find and install a serial card for the Iomega drive.
