try using file option instead of movie or music cos some time when you use movie or music it will only look for movie or music files also what formatt are your movies in cos it has a prob reading certain files and codecs like mp4
using an external HDD doesn't require dual booting.
First connect the external drive, and copy files to the drive that don't require and applications to be installed (MP3s, Avi Videos, Pictures)
Then you can delete the files from the HDD, this will immediately give a boost in performance. Generally, most games run a an Atom powered system don't take a great deal of space, so moving applications to the external drive likely would not be gratly beneficial as keeping data files there.
Dual booting by the way, is the process of installing 2 operating systems on a computer and being able to boot to more than one version. (Windows XP and Vista for example) of Windows and another OS (XP and Linux)
have the files been deleted from the laptop? if not i would simply do a fresh format on the external and re migrate data. if they are then you can get software such as undelete or recover my files to restore your deleted data off of your laptop drive.
Your installed music library in your external hard drive might not be supported by your media center on your new laptop, try to convert the files where the software are supported by your media player. try convert Master software, you can download it free then convert your files
1. You need to check how much free disk space is available on your laptop.
2. You need to check what duplicated files you have on both the laptop and the external hard drive and which is the latest version.
3. You need to decide to move the latest versions of the data files from the external hard drive to the laptop. This automatically delete these from the external hard drive. The older versions on the external hard drive can be deleted.
4. Now you need to check how much data is stored on your external hard drive.
5. If the amount of data stored on the external hard drive exceeds the available disk space on the laptop, then you cannot copy these files to the laptop.
6. If you have sufficient disk space on the laptop you can copy the data from the external hard drive to the laptop. I suggest you make a folder to copy this data to it.
You can now delete all the data from the external hard drive or you can format the external hard drive to make a clean external hard drive.
• The USB mode uses a file transfer class called the MSC (Mass Storage Class). This was developed as a way for files to be transferred onto an external drive such as a flash drive or an external hard drive. • In this mode, your mp3 player will look and function like an external hard drive in that it will appear in My Computer as a separate drive. This transfer class is not very specific to the transfer of media files so the MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) was introduced. • The difference with media files, specifically music files, is that they demand much more management. • Downloading services can require special licensing and a limit on the number of playbacks a music file can have. • The acquisition, restoration, updating, and backing up of these licenses as well as compatibility issues with file type and compression ratio within these digital music players demanded a more user-friendly and functional approach to file transfers. • For this reason, you will need to have Windows Media Player 10 or 11 available on your computer to utilize MTP. • Those with Windows Media Player 9 on their Windows 98 SE, Windows Millennium Edition, and Windows 2000 operating system will need to update using our Download Center. • We recommend the use of MTP over MSC (the USB mode on your player) because it is more specific to the transfer of music files. To change this setting, press the power button on your device once it’s connected to the computer until the USB icon disappears.
The first thing you need to decide is what you are going to use to backup your files: (1) An external hard drive (2) A flash drive or (3) CD or DVD.
A USB flash drive is probably the easiest way to go. Small...and fast. You can get a 4GB or 8GB one for $20-$40. If you have a lot of pictures/music/video files, you may need a larger external drive. I saw Staples advertise a 500GB USB one last week for $99.
If you are running Windows, there should be a backup utility under
All Programs>Accessories>System Tools. You can choose whatever files you wish to backup.
