Check the usb port function in the computer bios settings and be sure that it is set to yes. Connect properly your external drive. If it has two wire usb connections, use both to obtain the maximum power that will be need by your drive.

SOURCE: When i connect Buffalo Mini

An external storage-device has four major components:

* the USB cable

* the power-adapter

* the disk-drive inside the enclosure

* the USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the enclosure.

One of these components has failed.

Try a different USB cable.

Try connecting to a different USB port on your computer.

Try connecting to a USB port on a different computer.

Take a "multi-meter" and measure both the voltage and amperage output from the AC adapter, and compare with the specifications on the label on the adapter.

Open the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive, and then connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if it works at all.

Purchase a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it in the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage device.

Get the part-number and serial-number from the label on your disk-drive, and access the manufacturer's web-site, and use "check warranty status", to see if they will replace the device, at minimal cost to you.

There exist commercial "data recovery" services that can try to repair your device, just long-enough to rescue and copy your files.
For example, see: https://services.seagate.com/index.aspx?lng=en-US for a "no data - no charge guarantee".

Is the Pandigital SCN02 Photolink One-Touch Scanner compatible with Windows 8?


Are you using it currentrly? What is your current Operating System? I've been searching and can't see anywhate a windows 8 driver for this scanner.
Bu let me tell you, I'm using currently a Genius ColorPage, originally released for windows 98. Installed windows 2000 driver in compatibility mode for findows XP. There is no driver for Windows XP nor for Windows 7 and coldn't make it work in Windows 7. So I run it on a computer with dual bootWindows XP / Windows 7.
When I need to scan, I simply start up as windows XP. When finished scanning, reboot to windows 7
I Have Windows 7 on a 2 Tb HD SATA and Windows XP on 200 Mb IDE. Is more economical to have a dual boot then buy a new Scanner.
If your scanner won't run on windows 8, install on another HD or a partiton, Windows 7. doual boot Windows 7 / 8 work like a dream.

I have a new windows 7 computer and want to use my white 4400 embroidery machine on it. How do I load a new driver for my machine?


Unfortunately, it seems that the company that bought the White brand (SVP) has no interest in creating new drivers for the machine. Is your computer running the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of Windows 7? (Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System. If you see x64, you have the 64-bit version.)

If you have the 32-bit version, you can try the compatibility mode. With the White USB drive connected to the computer, right click on the installer instead of normally running the installer. Then choose Properties and then the Compatibility tab. Turn on Run program as Compatible with the appropriate OS. Then right click again on the installer and choose Run as Administrator. Then check if the program itself is running in the compatibility mode by right clicking again and choosing Properties.

A method that will work is to use a computer (virtual, dual-boot, or true second machine) with an older version of Windows installed. If you have Win7 Pro or Ultimate, you can create a virtual XP computer for free. Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft. Install them in order. Then install the XP software that came with the sewing machine in the virtual computer and it will work. (Other virtual computer programs are Parallels and VMWare.) All of the other options will require a licensed version of the older Windows OS.

I hope this helps.

Just bought a 500g ministation buffalo one. but very slow in transferring files from computer. As I am using windows xp, should I format to NTFS or keep it as FAT32 as it comes


Keep it at Fat 32 as most USB drives come that way. and any Windows operating system will recognize the drive. The reason that it transfers files slowly is because the USB drives are slow compared to internal drives. Also your USB ports may be of the older variety USB 1, rather than USB 2, but this is a function of *********** board chipset. For instance, many USB drives are coming out with the ad on the box saying compatible with USB 3, but if your machine only has USB 1 or 2, then it can not be run at the higher speed.

I have a new P5E3 Premium WiFi-AP MB. I have fitted one new 500Gb SAT drive to SATA1 connector I am trying to load Windows XP Pro, but each time I try, I get STOP 0000007B message. I know the drive is OK...


Why do you have your SATA configuration set to IDE compatible if you're using an SATA drive? You only need to do that if you have an IDE drive in the system in most case. Try setting your BIOS to failsafe mode and see what happens.
