If your ps is under warranty then speak to sony, or you can reformat the hd on a lap top. You can also upgrade to a 200gb hd, which is very simple to do, and only costs about 40-50 pound or 80-100 dollars.

How to Recover Pictures From Fujifilm FinePix S700 Storage Media


With 7 mega pixel camera, 10x optical zoom, 2.5 LCD, picture stabilization mode, and i-Flash intelligent Flash, the Fujifilm FinePix S700 fulfills all the requirements of any photographer. The storage media (SD and xD memory cards) used in this camera allows the photographer to save audios, videos, and photos of different sizes. Damage in storage media can occur any time, resulting in fatal consequences, like inaccessibility of data saved in the memory card. In most cases, the photographer encounters an error message stating that the card is corrupted. To overcome such corruption scenarios, the photographer needs to restore the data from an updated backup. But all photographers do not create a backup on regular basis. For them, a third-party Camera recovery software acts as a boon and helps them recover the data.
As a real-world instance, you encounter the below error message while trying to view the pictures saved in your SD card (inserted in Fujifilm FinePix S700):
"CARD ERROR"
After the above error message pops up, the data saved in the SD card becomes inaccessible.
Cause:
Few main causes for the above error message are:
1.Incorrect SD card format.
2.Incompatible SD card.
3.Memory card corruption due to unexpected camera shutdown, virus infection, and interrupted read or write operation.
Resolution:
To resolve the above error message and to access the data saved in SD card, you will need to:
1.Use a compatible SD card.
2.In case of memory card corruption, format the card in Fujifilm FinePix S700 camera. Though formatting brings the card in reusable state, all the audio, video, and picture files get deleted. To recover the deleted data, you will need to choose a powerful Camera recovery software.
Such recovery tools use effective scanning methods to ensure complete Camera data recovery. These tools can be downloaded from the Internet and used by anybody. Such applications are safe as they harm the original data saved in the memory card.
Digital camera recovery software is a world-renowned Photo Recovery utility used for recovering data from almost every type of memory card. This software ensures complete recovery of digital files, irrespective of their size or type. Compatible with Windows and Mac OS X, the read only software also recovers data from other storage media, like Zip drives, hard drives, etc.

How to fix No Bootable Media Error Message


FAT (File Allocation Table) is one of the most widely used file systems used now-a-days with various versions of Windows operating systems and memory cards. Every logical partition contains a FAT that consists of file allocation information and the information of free allocation units that need to be assigned to files. Although the FAT file system is reliable, corruption still occurs due to various reasons. In such situations of FAT corruption, your system becomes unbootable, resulting into inaccessibility of data saved in FAT based hard drive. To access the data after FAT file system damage, an easy way is to restore the data from an updated backup. But, with inaccessibility of data backup or backup falling short to restore the required data, an ideal option left is to use an advanced FAT Data Recoveryapplication that can recover the lost data.

To illustrate the above scenario, consider a practical case the below error message pops up when you attempt to boot your system:

“No Bootable Media”

As the above error message appears at the time of booting the system, you wont be able to access the data saved in the hard drive.

Cause:

The above error message because the FAT file system has been corrupted. Few main causes for file system damage are improper system shutdown, human errors, and virus attack.

Resolution:

To isolate the above error message and to access the data after the above error message appears, you will need to follow the below steps:

Run CHKDSK utility to repair the FAT file system. If the problem persists, format the hard drive.

While the latter resolution resolves the above error message completely, it also deletes the data saved on your hard drive. In such cases, if the backup is not available, then you can only recover your formatted data by using an advanced third-party FAT Data Recovery software.

A FAT Partition Recovery utility thoroughly scans a FAT based hard drive and recovers almost all data, even after formatting. The data recovery utility can be downloaded from the Internet.

Stellar Phoenix Windows Data Recovery is an efficient FAT Partition Recovery tool that recover lost, deleted, and formatted data from both FAT (FAT12, FAT16, FAT32, VFAT) and NTFS (NTFS, and NTFS5 ) based hard drives. The detailed help manual attached with the tool allows even a new user to perform recovery easily without any technical knowledge. It supports Windows 7, Vista, XP, 2003, and 2000.

My 250g external appears to have corrupted data. windows says it fixed the errors but my last two attempts to back up my computer failed. How do I fix the external drive?


> fixed the errors

The disk-check utility does some "consistency" checks:

* every file listed in the the Table-Of-Contents actually exists on the disk-drive, with no exceptions,

* every file on the disk-drive is listed in the Table-Of-Contents, with no exceptions,

* every "block" of data on the disk is either "free", or used exactly _once_ by a specific file,
i.e., no block on the disk is unaccounted-for, and no block on the disk is "owned" by _more_ than one file.

The disk-check utility does _NOT_ read each "block" of data on the disk, to confirm that each block is "readable". Only when the file-backup attempts to read a file, does the inability to read that block get exposed.

Similarly, it's only when the file-backup utility is trying to write to one of the "free" blocks,
that the inability to write to that block get exposed.

So, what you need to do is to run the 'FORMAT' utility on the external disk-drive,
and to choose the "full" option, not the "quick-format" option.
The utility will try to write to each block on the disk.
When the utility detects a "bad" block, the utility will either flag that block as "never-to-be-used",
or the disk-drive itself will designate one of the "spare" blocks on the disk
as the permanent substitute for the "bad" block.

When the utility completes, it will either report the number of "bad" blocks,
or it will report ZERO "bad" blocks (because the drive's own electronic circuits
will have done that "substitution" in a "transparent" manner).

After the FORMAT completes, try your backup again. It should work.

My playstation 3 turns off every time i go to load a game film ect, but it will stay on the home screen al day can anyone help me


Hi

Best this to do is a PS3 full reset, but make sure you back up your game data
Here's what to do:
1. Take disk out.
2. Back Up save data.
3. Back up general data using PS3s backup Utility.
4. Sync Trophies.

Now to do the ps3 reset

Hard Reset procedure for the PS3 (from Sony CS). Be sure to backup your settings/games saves by doing a System > Backup on your PS3 or you may lose your game saves! Also, this is a last resort procedure prior to exchanging/returning to sony.
1. Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on w/switch.
2. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps.
3. Then go through the initial setup and then run a full format via System > Format. (will take approx 3 1/1 hours). You may need to have our AV cables ready if your using HDMI (in case HDMI isn’t detected after initial reset).
4. Restore your backup you made prior to doing factory/hard reset (optional, if you created a backup).

let me know how it goes.

My 500 GB WD External Drive appears to be working -- and on some occassions it actually does -- but most of the time when I get to the file level no files show up -- and I get the error 'not a win32...


Try connecting this to another PC, see if the files are shown then. One drastic solution is to quick format the drive then use a file recovery utility to recover a format. BEFORE doing this as a LAST resort, if the device is recognised in Explorer on your comp or another machine, run a disc check utility such as HDD tune or similar and see if the drive is throwing up a RSA error or has bad sectors. If you Can access your data in the meantime, I'd pull it off quickly. Only go for the reformat / recover option as a last resort though..

N-91 Problems


Menu>Tools>Hard drive>Options>Tools>Format hard drive
Formatting the hard drive will clear any data stored on it. This should be a last resort and we'd suggest trying to scan the hard drive first. This will attempt to fix any hard drive disk errors. If your N91 does not have the scan option (some don’t) then connect to your PC in mass storage mode, right click on the F: drive, then hit scan.
