Recover data form hard disk


What is wrong with yoru hard disk?



If you can't access your files,data recovery program can help.I used this one called Tenorshare Data Recovery to retrieve files off crashed HDD and it worked.
If needed,you can download it and scan your hard drive for free to preview whether your files can be recovered.BTW, you can get it from
Tenorshare Data Recovery for Windows Users
Tenorshare Data Recovery for Mac Users



Can't get it detected?


Turn the computer off without the external hard drive being plugged in.
plug the external hard drive in a usb port, power up, the systems post boot up will find the drive and inform windows what hardware is installed.
When windows boots up, it will look at all the hardware and find the external hard drive, when windows finishes booting up you should be able to see the drive in my computer.

Tip

Connecting to a Vista Computer


Having problems connecting the camera to a Vista computer?

1. Install the camera driver, which can be found from the CD.

2. Turn on the Camera, and change it to "Playback" mode.
3. Connect the camera to the computer using USB port.

4. The LCD display of the camera will turn off automatically, and the computer should say that new hardware is detected.

5. Go to "My Computer", and you should find a new drive saying "Removable disk".

Double click it and you will find your pictures and videos inside the folder. Just copy them to your computer's hard disk.

I've lost my original software disk that came with PowerShot SX100 IS. ZoomBrowser 6.5.1 that is downloadable from Canon support site asks for the original CD. Could you please suggest where I can...


You don't need the Canon software.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

My computer won't recognize my camera when I try to load photos


Two Possibilities:

1) There's no driver installed, or the installation failed. ( A notification will say so when you plug it in ). Be shure the driver is setup properly.

2) The setting on the camera is set to "WebCam" and not "USB Disk"

In the settings menu, (Not the photo menu) on the camera there will be a USB Function option; this sets the camera up to behave like a cardreader and set the plugged in camera as an aditoional disk drive.
The other setting for the USB Function is "Web Cam" or "Digital Camera"; this will set the plugged in camera to behave as a USB Web Camera accessable to tv tuners or other recording or chat software.

To test, open the "My Computer" display of available hard drives, Disc Drives, Floppy Drives, and Memory Card Drives, then plug in the camera into the USB connector. A USB signal sound will alert you and a new drive should appear on the My Computer list, that's the camera.

If you don't get a new drive, then unplug the USB connector and enter the Menu on the camera, look for a USB function menu and set it to Disk drive, or whatever is not Web Cam function.

Note: This is for PC, and not Apple type computers, but I'm shure an Apple computer would be similar.

Cheers.
Richard.

Sanyo VPC-s500 i cant get it to install drivers or find them so i can upload pictures to my computer


The simple solution to this problem is that no drivers are required. This camera is treated as a removable (secondary) drive just as if it was a USB thumb drive or external hard drive.
First go to settings on the camera by rotating the dial to the wrench icon.
Turn the camera on and select Set-Up 2
Select USB
Select PC
Your camera is now ready to use with your computer.
Now plug your camera into your computer and check under My Computer for the drive to show. You can now copy files over to your computer from the camera.
If the drive isn't showing you'll have to go into Disk Management to view it
Disk Management is under Administrartive Tools located in your Control Panel (or Start Menu if you have it set to show there)
Select Administrative Tools
Computer Management
On the left hand side click Disk Management (or on the right click Storage then Disk Management)
Finally you can now Right Click the cameras drive and chose Open
