SOURCE: MAC unable to read this storejet device

The format of your external drive is most likely NTFS which is used by Vista and Windows 7. At best the latest OS X can only read NTFS format with care..

You best bet is to put the data on dvd - r or (i prefer for DVD archiving) + r since you'll be able to port that to anywhere. Alternatively, after saving the data to an interim PC, reformat to FAT. Note FAT can only address 32 GB. so you might need to divide it into multiple partitions.

I hope this helps or you found out differently.

SOURCE: My PC is unable to read my transcend store jet 2.5

I encountered the same problem before and was able to track it down to the power needs of the drive.
USB 2.0 standard ports are required to deliver 100mA by default and up to 500mA on request by a connected device. Some older (USB1.x) hubs can deliver a maximum of 50mA only which is not sufficient for the harddrive.
My StoreJet as a fix came with a special Y-connector cable (two USB connectors go into PC, one into the connector at the HD) to double the available power. I have also seen cables with an extra power connector built inside the plug that goes into the PC side. However, this is a crude fix in violation of USB standards and I cannot condone the use of such cables.

A separate power connector is present at the back panel of the drive, but it came without a power supply included. I got myself a standard 5V/500mA universal power supply (check connector jack size and polarity, outside sleeve is ground, inside is +5V DC).

Alternatively an external USB2.0 hub can be used but beware: if it does not come with an external power supply, its not USB2.0 compliant --- some cheap companies spare themselves of the extra costs for this required part.

Another thing: the mini USB connector in the back panel of the HD case is mechanically fragile and not soldered well to the controller PCB. It has a tendency to loose electrical connection.
I had to fix the soldering on two of these HDs already; doing so yourself is recommended only if you have some experience in using a fine electronics soldering iron --- otherwise have a repair shop fix it for you.

How do I upload photos from my computer to my iphone 5c smartphone?

How to Transfer Photos: Windows Vista/7 Users If you have Windows 7 or Vista, there are two easy ways to transfer your photos directly to your desired folder or directory.

AutoPlay Method

When your iPhone device is connected, click on the Start Menu, and then Control Panel. Click Hardware and Sound. Select AutoPlay, scroll down to find where your iPhone device is listed, open the drop-down menu, and select "Ask me every time."
Step 1 - Connect your iPhone device
If you enabled the AutoPlay behavior using the method described above, you can skip this step, because your iPhone is already plugged in. If not, connect your device using the appropriate USB cable that your phone came with.
Step 2 - Import Pictures and Video
The AutoPlay prompt should appear with your device type listed at the top. Click the first link that says "Import Pictures and Video."
If for some reason the AutoPlay prompt did not appear, go to Start, then Computer, then right click on the icon for your iPhone device and select "Import pictures and video" from the context menu that appears.
Step 3 - Choose a directory, and import
Before you click Import, go to Import Settings, and select the "Import to" field to select the destination you want your photos to transfer to. By default, they will transfer to your My Pictures folder. You can also select the "Always erase from device after copying" option, though this is, as always, optional.
Click OK, then click Import, and your photos will be transferred to their designated directory.

Windows Explorer

If you don't want to mess with AutoPlay, you can find and transfer your photos manually using Windows Explorer.
Step 1 - Connect your iPhone device
Step 2 - Click Start, then Computer
This should take you to a Windows Explorer page that lists your hard disk drive(s), and devices with removable storage. If connected properly, your iPhone device will register as a device with removable storage, and you will see the icon for it listed below this header.
Step 3 - Double-click your device's logo in Windows Explorer
Double-clicking your device will open it up as a directory, full of folders and sub-folders that store all of your phone's content.
Step 4 - Open your camera folder
Your camera folder should be located in [Your iPhone Device]\Internal Storage\DCIM\100APPLE. This means once you're in your iPhone's directory, click on the Internal Storage folder, then the DCIM folder, then the 100APPLE folder.
Step 5 - Transfer your photos
You can import your device's photos by selecting the ones you want, or pressing Ctrl+A to select them all, and dragging them onto your desktop. Or, you can hit Ctrl+C to copy the photos, and then hit Ctrl+V in the folder you want to copy them into.

Hi I have an apple mac laptop and have plugged my new iomega 320gb 2.5 select portable hard drive. The problem is im trying to drag movies accross however it wont let me?

Portable devices such as USB disks (in most UNIX based operating systems) will be mounted as READ-ONLY. Remember the old floppy disk with a slide switch to make them READ-WRITE? same principal.
Try right clicking (MAC uses double finger click together) on the Desktop Icon that appears after you plug in the USB drive... is there an option to select READ-WRITE?
let us know if that was it.

I have the 2010 academic version of peachtree complete and when i put the disc in the cd-rom nothing happens. You can here the disc spinning and can my pc is trying to read the disc but then the spinning...

You computer probably has Autoplay turned off for security.
-Click the start button on the lower left and click Computer when it appears near the middle of the right column. -Look for one of the drives labeled CD or DVD, probably the D drive. Righ-click it's icon. -From the list choose Autoplay.
If Autoplay is not an option double-click on the CD or DVD drive. Look for an application called Setup and double-click it to begin setup.

I have lost my user manual for my lexmark 2450 printer,can you help me

Do you still have the Cd that came with the Printer when you bought it? If so, a pdf format user manual is included on the Cd. To read the manual from the cd, insert the Cd into the Cd-rom drive, it'll autoplay, now click "?" on the autoplay menu, then read the user's manual. (if the cd isn't autoplay, open "My Computer" double click the "2400 series" icon, and click "?")

You also have another alternative, if you've already installed the printer's softwares and drivers, click "Start" > "All Programs" > "Lexmark 2400 series.." > "User's guide", open it and you can read the manual. This is the simplest and easiest option.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I want to know what i need to do next after i have put my sd card into my computer, a green light comes on, and i want to know how to get my pictures to come up on my computer, so i can do any adjustments...

1. When you insert a memory card into your computer, it'll be detected automatically and an "AutoPlay" dialog box will ask you to what to do ?

2. Select "Open folder to view files" option from the list.

3. Now, you can easily view the files in the memory card by double-clicking them.

4. If the "AutoPlay" dialog box doesn't appear, goto Start >> My Computer. Here you can view the memory card as a "Removable Drive" with some name!

5. Double-click the memory card's icon to view the files inside it.

6. After your job is complete, you can remove the memory card by just clicking the USB device icon at the right side of Task Bar (Notification Area)!

7. On click, a single option pop-up will appear with "Safely Remove USB Mass Storage Device" message!

8. Just click on that pop-up. A "Safe To Remove" message box will appear.

9. Click on OK button, and manually remove your memory card!

please rate this advice if it! :)
