have a look into device manager, right click my computer and select manage. then on the left side of the window select device manager, now on the right side, take note of the usb devices, unplug your stick, does anything disappear? try pressing the scan for hardware changes button

I have 372 tracks of music on my windows computer I would like to play on my BMW using a usb memory stick. My problem the car will only recognise MP3. Help.

You'll have to get a converter to convert from the original format to MP3 format. But if it will read MP4 you can transfer all the songs to iTunes which will convert them to MP4, then go to your iTunes music folder and transfer them back to your stick, they should be in MP4 format. Hope this helps

I have bought a new memory stick, I've never used one before and dont know how to use it to store and carry information correctly?

Just take a look at the back panel of your computer.
You would find 2 or more USB slots which are meant for your memory stick (we call it USB pen-drive as well).

Insert this memory stick into one of these slots. (Align the plastic side properly and it ll fit in easily).
Normally there is an LED light on the stick that glows when you connect it to the computer.

Now click on Start - (My) Computer
Or just press Windows+E

Alongwith the hard-drive & DVD-drive, you would find the Memory Stick icon there (manufacturer's name like Kingston, SanDisk etc would appear).
Double click on it to open and see whats stored inside (right now it would be blank as u v not stored anything in it)

Now you want to store something, say, a song in it,

Very simple. Just open the Music folder. Right click on your song. Click on Send To, and then click on the memory stick (removable media) name.

You can alternatively copy the song (right click on the song, click on copy), go to the memory stick drive (open My Computer, double click on stick icon), and paste the song there (again right click, click on paste).

Once the file is copied, disconnect the stick from computer.
Now your data is ready to travel with you.

Find another computer with a USB port and Internet access.
Find a USB memory-stick.
Access the manufacturer's web-site:
and search under "support" for "Aspire" and "6390".
Download the device-driver for the wireless adapter to the memory-stick (or burn to a CD-R or CD-RW).
Move the memory-stick (or "burnt" disk) to your Acer computer, and install from there.
Voila! Internet access.

Look the best way is to Format the drive and NTFS it.. then reinstall windows.. else ya just gonna chase ya tail 4 eva.. been there done that... Heehhee... Better if ya can afford new hard drive then that's wat I do these days.. save tearin ya hair out and time too...

Then get a "Distro" of XP Virus Free... and install to ya PC.. I use B;ack XP these days its just great. It install with an Antivirus etc and just works but there are others like Borg XP etc.

As for ya photos copy em out to a Flash Drive etc using a DOS box and copy command Tediuos but non virus affected usually... GL
