I cant sand my data to pen drive frm my pc


If you are not able to send data to your pen drive from your PC that means your pen drive does not have space to carry more data. Please check the space in your pen drive that how much space left in your pen drive or do you have any space left in your pen drive.

to check space in your pen drive follow this:-

open computer or my computer>right click on pen drive icon>left click on properties>now you check the used space and unused pace.

If there is a space left in your pen drive then how much space left because you can download or transferred your data to pen drive up to that limit that space you have left in your pen drive.

If you have no space left in your pen drive or very less space then you can increase the space by moving some files from your pen drive and saving it up in another place in your computer

How do i down load music frm laptop 2 usb help plz in plain english


Put your USB Pen into the USB Port. Go to the folder where you keep the music file on your computer, right click on the file and highlight 'send to'. This should then give you a choice of options, one of which will be 'removable disc' This is your 'usb pen drive'. Select this option and the file will copy over, you should get a box comes up telling you that it is copying.

Feedback is always appreciated

WHAT IS THE RESET BUTTON ON THE BOTTOM SIDE OF MY COMPAQ PRESARIO 2500 SPECIFICLY DO. IN OTHER WORDS IF I PUSH IT WILL I LOSE ALL MY STORED INFORMATION ON THE DRIVE?


This is straight from the manual:

Occasionally, Windows or the notebook might stop responding, so that you cannot turn the notebook off. If this happens, try the following in the order listed. Press the power button to restart.
• If possible, shut down Windows: press ctrl+alt+del, and then select Shut Down > Restart.
If the system will not allow a software shutdown, press and hold down the power button until the display shuts down (about 4 seconds) and then release the power button. Press the power button again to restart.
• Use a ballpoint pen or a straightened paper clip to press the reset button on the bottom of the notebook.

In other words: You will not loose any saved data if you reboot your laptop this way. All unstored information (open documents etc.) might be lost though.
