From your comment it is not understood that you want to protection off from the HDD or files in it.

move all your data to other drive, all the security settings will be withdrawn while moving to other drive. if is NTFS fs then you got to reformat to use as fat32 for full protection off.

Remove write protection from my LG External HDD HXE4 3.0 500GB


Using an external hard drive is a convenient way to transport files from one computer to another or share files with a co-worker or friend.
Activating copy protection, otherwise known as write protection, on the files that you place on the external hard drive is a good idea, as it will prevent that data from being altered inadvertently when connected to another machine.
Remove copy protection from your files when the external drive unit is again attached to a trusted PC and you wish to change the structure of the files.

Connect the external drive to your computer system.
Right-click "Start" and then click "Explore."

Click the external drive on the list of available devices.
Right-click on the copy protected files that you wish to unprotect status and click "Properties."
Uncheck "Read-only."
Close the Explorer menu and proceed to edit your files as desired.

All saved recordings have disappeared from menu. system has reset itself and now all recording in the HDD play menu have disapperaed. They must still be on the HDD because nothing else has been...


dissambling and taking the hard drive out of the dvr will most likely void the warrenty how it is possible.

once the hard drive is removed you may be able to plug it into your PC and gain access to the files on the hard drive. These how ever may be specially encoded and protected files that you cant open.

-you PVR may have also done a hard reset and formatted the hard drive. This would delete all the files on the PVR.

-unlike tapes, erasing a hard drive does not require you to record over it. just because nothing else has been recorded does not mean your data is still there. sorry.

When plug in the pc the hdd can open but the problem is some files is missing but if you check the properties of the hdd its full and i can only see few items inside it.


It's clear from missing files that your hdd is infected from virus. Virus has a property to hide your files so that no one could see them but they these files are not permanently deleted. Thats why hdd properties shows they are full.
Method 1: Click "My Laptop" Switch to the advanced view (if you're using Windows XB.) Click "Folder Administrator" Click the tab called "Viewer" Check "Show all files or folders or applications" If you also wish to view system files, Uncheck "Show protected operating system files"
Method 2: Go to registry editor by running regedit in the run box. Go to this key: HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoft WindowsCurrentVersionExplorerAdvanced In the right hand area, double click hidden and change the value to 1. Now you're all set to go. Check it in your tools menu if the changes have taken effect.
Method 3: If none of the above methods work, please download Smart Virus Remover or any other good software from internet. GOOD LUCK

Why is every file i attempt to save saying that the hard drive is write protected?


You may go to BIOS, basically in Compaq PCs you have an option to turn on/off write protection for HDD.

You need to go to BIOS and use the command Fix /MBR, which will refresh the first boot sector of the HDD and resolves this issue many a times.

Secured and compressed jpgs will not open


Hello patsyzara

(01) 1st, for now (as a precaution against data loss), please, don't add or delete anything to or from that external HDD (hard disk drive)

(02) Just to make sure, the photos and not just a catalog of the photos were originally stored onto the external HDD, yes?

(03) Do you still have access to the computer where you originally had the external HDD connected at the time you encrypted the files (photos)?

Even if the protected files were on the same external HDD that you are using now, the protection software is possibly associated w/ the computer on which the files were fist stored.

(04) Please, tell us exactly what mechanism (the name of the software, etc) you used to originally encrypt these files.

(05) Did you recall if you used software that came w/ the external HDD to encrypt your files?

(06) Please, tell us the the following:

(A) The operating system that was installed on the previous computer you're referring to. (Windows 2000, Windows XP, etc.)

(B) The model number of your Freecom external HDD. (look for a sticker or any markings on the case).

(C) The name of the encryption software if you can remember.

(06) If you still have access to the original computer, connect the external hard disk to that computer and tell us if you can see the files again.

(07) If you can, decrypt the files and then transfer the external HDD to the new computer.

If you need assistance w/ ANY of these steps or have any questions at all, comments, observations, etc., please, post back here w/ them. We will continue to work w/ you on this issue until it is resolved or we reach an impasse.


Thank you
BJ @:)
