Download ATF-Cleaner from here and run that. It will clean a BUNCH of "junk" files.

As to your CD drive, there should be a button to press to open it. Or, go to Start, My Computer, right-click on the CD drive hopefully listed there, and choose Eject.

My ipod classic 80 gb wont restore and keeps clicking

Listen to the iPod when it is connected to the computer. Do you hear repetitive clicking sounds from the hard drive? If so, your hard drive is broken. It's not too hard to replace the hard drive yourself. Here is an iPod Repair Guide that shows how to open an iPod. Parts are easily available on Ebay. If you want somebody else to do it for you go to iPad Repair

Message Receipt Failed

Check your multimedia message settings for your SMS/MMS app. Check to see if its set to only download a certain limit. You might be set to something less than 1 MB. Can you receive normal text messages?

I have a Cruzer USB flash drive 1 GB. I got a message that an upgrade was available, and I clicked on it. But the installation failed for some reason. And now the device doesn't launch properly. It...

I'm not sure if this will work for you, but I had the exact same problem. An update was available so I downloaded it. It failed during downloading without a reason and when I went to open the Cruzer there were dozens of folders with weird lettering or squares. If I attempted to move/delete the folders, I'd receive a warning that it can't be done.

It also told me to redownload it. I attempted to find it..but nothing worked.

This worked for me:

Open up "My Computer"
Under the "Devices with Removable Storage" you should an icon labeled under the drive you placed the Cruzer under.
Right Click the icon and click explore.
You'll then see all the corrupted folders in the Cruzer file and on the left, you'll see a column of your computers hardware.
Right click the "Removable Disk" in the list of computer programs and click Format. Click yes when it says "It'll erase everything."

And hopefully that'll fix it for you.
