It may have prepared to put the file there, but not actually written it. Like burning a CD... you might right click on the file and see if it gives you the option to write it, or close it.

You might also make sure you check your system tray, and see if there's an icon for connected devices (like thumb drives and USB accessories). You may need to right-click that and "stop" the device so that's it's safe to remove.

That's a pretty reliable drive and not too many troubles in general.

Are you using similar versions of Windows (or other OS)? It's possible it's writing in different formats and not visible on that score. Check the drive size (used and available) and see if the storage is correct but you just can't see the files.

Good luck!!

I did a system recovery, during which it asked me if i wanted to save files and pictures..I said yes but now I can not find my old files


do another system recovery going back to an earlier date when you did the last recovery. If you find one then go back to it. If you get everything back, do a BACKUP of everything u want to save on an external HD. Finally you can do another recovery to bring your computer to were u are today and do a restore from your backup set to put back anything you're missing. good luck

IF OUR CD DRIVE WHICH IS MY COMPUTER FILE IS GONE(IN MY COMPUTER IT HAS DISAPPEARED) THEM FROM WHERE WILL I DOWNLOAD NEW LG SUPER MULTI DRIVE INSTALLER?


Hi Kundan,

Its not that you need to install anything to make your CD or DVD drive reappear in the My Computer list of Drives. The answer lies elsewhere.

CAUTION / WARNING!: Go ahead and follow these steps only if you are confident of doing it. Else get it done from a hardware engineer.

1. Switch OFF your PC's power supply and unplug it from the AC mains outlet.
2. Open the cover of your PC & look for the data cable connecting your CD/DVD drive to the motherboard.
3. Remove the data cable from the motherboard end and put it back in the same manner.
4. Do the same on the CD/DVD Drive's end as well.
5. Also remove and put in again the power socket of the CD/DVD Drive.
6. put back the PC's cover.
7. Plug in your PC to the AC Mains and switch ON the power.
8. Start you PC and let it boot normally.
8a. Go into your CMOS setup (by either pressing the Del key or the F2 key) whatever the case
might be. Here, look for auto detection of the drives attached to the motherboard's SATA or
IDE ports (again whatever your case may be) If it shows your drives i.e. Hard drive and the
CD/DVD drive then it should appear when you restart your PC. Press F10 and say Y in the
Save & Exit Setup window. This will save your CMOS settings and reboot.
9. Once everything has started up and you see your desktop with its icons & everything, go in My Computer and see again for the CD/DVD drive. It must appear.

If it still doesn't appear then try this:

PSP Games


You most likely need to format the memory stick with the PSP. What may have happened is once you've upgraded, the PSP re-rooted itself into the memory stick. So it's looking for a folder that doesn't exist. (But that's just what I think...) I've had this problem also. After you format it with the PSP, it should work fine. As for your game files, they should still be saved on the memory stick. Search all your files with your computer then save them to your computer so they don't get formatted. After the format, put the files back onto the memory stick where they belong and everything should work fine! Please ask if you have any questions!
