Windows xp to vista external HD transfer problem?

Hi,
my pc recently gave out so i want to transfer my files from my old pc's hard drive to my friends pc. the geek squad guy said that the new pc should just read the old HD as if it were an external HD so i purchased a dynex external hd kit and installed my old HD into it and connected it to my friend's pc via a usb cord. the files show up but we keep getting a message of "permission error" when we try to move the files to his pc. Does it matter that my old HD had windows xp and his pc has vista? i also read on this site that it might be a problem with the jumpers on the external HD. i am a novice so laymans terms please. thank you for your help!

It is exactly right... YOU are not 'in control' of the hard drive and your buddy's computer doesnt have the 'permissions' to work with YOUR files...

It MAY be possible to get the okay if he logs into his computer as the administrator.... it is NOT an actual 'hardware' issue... being able to see the files says that... XP and vista are 'close enuf' design-wise that drive compatability isnt it either...

If your friend can log in as 'administrator' he will likely be able to take 'ownership' of the files on your 'external' drive and get what you need!

My desktop PC XP OS can detect TDK FDD-100 external floppy drive ,but cannot read files inside. How can I solve my problem?


The disc may be corrupted :( In most cases external floppy drives work just fine but the disc they are reading is old. Shelf life of floppies is really only 3 to 5 years. After that you really can't trust that you'll be able to read them. I've had discs up to 10 years old that I can still read, but others that are only a couple years old I can't. Try plugging the floppy into another PC to see if that one can read it. Recommend trying it on a newer PC (Windows 7 or 8)

Can you transfer your Dongle to a usb stick and use windows 7 for 3D software insted of windows XP?


I took a class a couple of days ago at my local Husqvarna Viking store and my dongle wasn't working so the lady asked if I could used the cable. I have a Designer Topaz 20 and it didn't have the correct port to use the cable but U did have another USB drive and we were able to transfer the embroidery design to that and it worked just fine. I spoke with the manager yesterday about the dongle issues I have had ans she said that I can use any USB drive as long as it isn't too big because the machine can't read a drive bigger that 8GM. She says if you have more than that it take a really long time for the embroidery patterns to load. I hope that helps.

On a side note, I really wish this site didn't categorize Husqvarna Viking Products under "Floppy Drives". Yes, our embroidery machines are computers but it's not likely that the techy folks looking in the floppy drives category can even help us.
Hey, Fixya can we have a Husqvarna Viking category for sewing & embroidery machines?

I have a Sony 2X FDD model MPF88E-UA. My vista HP doe not read the disc, tells me to inialize the disc??? I've looked for drivers and can't find??? Terri hartfeltdesigns@verizon.net 732.558.8388


Hi Terri,
Try changing your operating system from Vista to Windows XP; you can partition your disc to have another OS alternative. People have reported a lot of glitches with the Vista Environment..I am more comfortable with good old XP. Also check your device manager under control panel.

Cheers & Kind Regards

Same problem with my MPF82E


Hi,
You see floppy drives are pretty old technology compared to the Vista environment which is the latest. Your floppy external drive will most likely run better in the Windows XP environment along with the necessary drivers on device manager under control panel...and those drivers you can also download. Am sure it will work better with windows 98 or XP.

Thanks & Kind Regards

Can't load SmartDisk FDUSB=TM2 on Vista Premium 64


Hello,
Windows Vista carries a lot of glitches ....we need to give it more time as it improves. The XP environment works better with older technologies like the smart disk floppy drive. My advice is for you to partition your hard disk and place Windows XP on one side and still keep the Vista on the other. That way you can have both OSystems and still be able to use your floppy drive. Alternatively you can upgrade and use a flash drive storage or DVD/CD. They are newer technology which are more compatible with Vista.

Cheers & Kind Regards

Need vista driver for FD-05PUB teac usb floppy drive


You should have (if bought new) had a mini disc in with the drive. If not try the manufacturers site and download it. It's also possible by doing the add/remove hardware and pointing towards Microsoft for the driver it will install for you. Hope this helps...Tango.
