Do you mean a 1.44mb floppy disk? If so you need a 3.5 inch floppy drive, "you don't remove the disk from the plastic cover"
If the laptop doesn't have a built in floppy drive, you can buy a USB external one.
You don't say if you wish to scan to the floppy, or get photographs from it!
There is no point in scanning to a floppy these days as it's capacity of 1.44MB will hold very few high resolution photos.
if you are trying to retrive photos from a floppy either get the USB floppy drive sugested above or use a PC which has a floppy drive & transfer to another medium which can be read by your laptop (SD card, burn to CD) or of course email the scans to yourself.

You can't remove this cover, if you do it will be damaged permanently. If your laptop have a floppy drive then you can do , if not there is a few ways around it, put the floppy in your desktop floppy drive and copy pictures to my pictures folder and then send them to your email address or place them as documents and do an attachment, but you must be able to insert this 2hd in a (floppy drive) or you can copy this disk to a memory stick!

How do I remove the CD/DVD drive from this computer? The layout inside is different from many desktops.


just pop off the colored plate and the clips are on the side. the drive will slide right out.
(1) take off the left side cover, (2) near the front, at the bottom of the internal drive cage is a plastic lever, flip it down, (3) now open the front plastic CD holder cover (the bottom gray plastic thing), (4) there are two finger holes at the bottom of the top plastic cover - pull the top cover loose (note if you're scared to put a lot of pressure on it, you can use a small flat screwdriver through those holes to lift back the two tabs holding the cover on), (5) with the top cover off, pinch in the two plastic tabs on the side of the drive you want and pull it forward (note disconnect the IDE cable (and audio if there is one) before pulling the drive too far out), (6) pull off the two side rails from the old drive (they just push in and pull out) - but note which rail comes off which side (I'm not sure if they can be inserted upside down or not, so just keep track of which one goes on which side), (7) push the side rails onto the new drive (note you have to really push hard on the metal part of the rail to seat it properly - you'll know it's not seated if the drive doesn't slip in easily), (8) slip in the new drive & connect the IDE and power (and audio if there is one)cables (9) install the top plastic frame, flip up the lock inside the case, then close the bottom CD cover thing, (10) enjoy the new drive. hope this helps you and please vote for me

Need to find out how to install my memorex double layer 16x


Ok here is what you need to do. Open the box that the driver came in and also the side panel of your computer. Remove the cables that are attached to the current CD-ROM drive and if you need to unscrew the screws that are holding the CD-ROM drive in place which you'll need a phillips screw driver for. Remove the old CD-ROM and put in the new one and reconnect the cables to the new one. If an installation disk came with it then put that in the CD-ROM drive and install whatever is on that disk. Afterwards you should be ready to go. If you need anything else please let me know!

Computer keeps rebooting on its own


Most likely a virus has or malware has got into the system try SAFEMODE and install or do virus check if this does not work get someone to download one of the well known free virus checks and when you use as boot CD it will do virus check other options are more drastic like take hard drive out and do virus check with another computer of Format but try and save date before these options are attempted

I have a 20X Memorex multi function disk drive and have from time to time tried to use it for backing up/storing important data. My question is if I "verify" the burn there will be errors. I have also...


As for your question of disk vs hard drives, DVD's and CD's that are burnt from a computer are more easily damaged then hard drive data. The best idea if you are looking for a good backup solution is an external hard drive in my opinion. There are many opinions on this very subject so you will receive many opinions. There are no wrong answers just opinions and personal preference. Another solution you can try is an external HD using a program such as Symantec Ghost and create a full image of your hard drive.

Hello
seems like your hardrive is broken. one thing you can check is to remove the harddisk and check the IDE connectors and put it back it can be something loose. the other thing is to remove the plastic under the laptop so you see the HD and feel if the HD make any noice or vibrations when you start the computer.

Hi ! Ive got Packard Bell Notebook EasyNote GN45 ! I would like to put in bigger hard drive , but i cant take out old one ! Can u tell me how to do this ?


You should an anti static strap. It's available at any hardware store. First turn off unit. Unplug the ac adaptor.

Perform the following steps to remove the battery:
1. Make sure the power is off.
2. Turn the unit upside down.
3. Unlock the left battery lock.
4. Push battery lock on right outward to the release the battery.
5. Slide the battery out.

Now's the time for the strap. In lieu of that touch an unpainted metal part of the case and try to maintain contact. If you lose contact just touch again.

To remove the hard disk drive, then perform the following steps:

1. Remove the screws on the hard disk drive cover and carefully open it.
Cover is on the corner. ( 1" x 3")
2.
Pull out the hard disk drive using the plastic tab.
3. Remove the two screws on both sides of the hard disk drive shield.

That's all there is. Easy right? If you don't have an anti static bag wrap it in some bubble wrap to keep it safe.

Just reverse to put in new hard drive. If this helped you please rate a big 4 fix ya. Thanks. If you need more help just add a comment and I'll get right back to you.
