I don't have vmware installed right now, have you set the usb to be used by the virtual machine? if no usb ports are in use on the virtual machine it wont find anything.

    look into the xp device manager do you see any usb ports there? if not then the vmware is most likely not configured to use any usb ports, it may be possible to use the extral harddrive over the vmware network, connect it to your mac, and share the drive for network. then go to the virtual machine and try to access the shared network drive. I don't have much experience with macs so I don't know right now how to share a drive on a mac for the network.

    Ok, first make sure that usb controller is present and that network is in nat mode.



    in nat mode is easy to figure out the address of the host computer and the address of the virtual machine.



    Il have to install xp into the virtual machine now to figure the rest out.

My Dell Inspiron 6400 (Windows XP Home) won't reboot. It's giving me a "Loading PBR for descriptor 1 ... done" line on a black screen. What can I do to fix it. Can I salvage my content / files


Before you use the Recovery CD you need to backup your data because to restoring your laptop will wipe your data off the hard disk.
To backup your data when you cannot boot up your laptop, remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter. Connect this hard drive/USB adapter into the USB port of a working computer. The computer will see it as an external storage device, you can then open the folders and backup your data.
You can then fit the hard drive back into the Dell laptop and boot up with the Dell recovery CD to reinstall Windows etc.

Tip

Restoring your iTunes Library backup


When you need to restore your backed up iTunes Library from your external hard drive to your computer, follow these steps:

Quit iTunes.
Locate your external hard drive.
Mac: On the Desktop or Finder sidebar.
Windows: In My Computer

Drag the iTunes folder (backed up earlier) from your external hard drive to whatever location you desire on your internal hard drive. It is recommended that you choose the default location for the iTunes folder, which is:

Mac OS X: /Users/username/Music
Windows XP: \Documents and Settings\username\My Documents\My Music\
Windows Vista or Windows 7: \Users\username\My Music\
Open iTunes while holding down the Option key (Mac) or Shift key (Windows).

In the resulting dialog, click the Choose Library button.

Select the iTunes folder you just moved to the internal hard drive.
Click Choose.

Error Installing OS X on Mac G4


I would suggest sticking with Tiger. How to reinstall:

I assume you put the Tiger disc in the drive and rebooted while holding C or you changed your startup disc in System Preferences.

As you are clicking through the installation program, look for a "Options" button at the bottom, I believe. Click the button. Look for the "Archive and Install" option. Careful: **DON'T select "Erase and Install" unless you want everything erased off your hard drive.

There is a small risk of data loss when installing the operating system. You should have backups of your important pictures, documents, etc. You should have backups of your home folder. [The free Carbon Copy Cloner can make a copy of your hard drive onto an external hard drive. It can also make a disk image you can save to an external hard drive, if there's other stuff on the drive.]

Select "Archive and Install," which will save your previous OS in a folder and install Tiger. It will not touch your pictures, documents, etc.

After that, you should be good to go. If not, let us know and we'll do our best to help.

*If this info is helpful, please rate my solutions, and recommend me. Thanks! **

Seagate external 2.0 USB 60GB harddrive


Well, in your case your external may corrupt. The solution is format the drive and then try some so-called data recovery software. After finishing the format option. Do it as follows.

Connect your hard drive to your personal computer. And install this software Wondershare Data Recovery on the computer in order to perform data recovery. Get the program from its site.
data recovery (for Windows OS)
Mac data recovery (for Mac OS X)

Good luck. I hope that my reply has shed some light on the problem!
