I'm trying to move files from old computer to new computer.


The easiest way is to use an USB memory stick, plug this USB memory stick into the XP computer and copy the files from the XP computer to the USB memory stick, then remove the USB memory stick and plug it into the Windows 7 computer and copy the files from the USB memory stick to the Windows 7 computer.

A great feature that isn't commonly known is ReadyBoost. It was introduced in Vista and is available in Windows 7 as well. Basically it increases the amount of memory you have by using your memory stick. You can use more then one usb/thumb drive and the bigger they are the better.

Step 1: Just insert your USB drive into a usb port.

Step 2: Click Start > Computer

Step 3: Right click the USB memory stick you plugged in and choose Properties. Click the ReadyBoost tab then choose Use this device. Choose how much space you would like to allocate and that's it!


Enjoy the boost!

I need to know how to use the Sandisk card reader. can u give me instructions?


You should be able to plug the device in. Most operating systems will recognize the device and treat it as new hard drive.

Are you getting a request for a driver? If so, first let Windows look for the driver.

How can i retrieve my files from a broken memory stick pro duo


It depends how it is broken, if there is a physical reason, broken connection inside, then it will be possible but if the ram chip inside has died then sorry you've lost it all.
If the chip itself is not damaged, then the data can be recovered.

It will probably cost you money, so it all depends on how important the data is.

It is unlikely that you will be able to do this yourself, but there are companies out there that specialize in recovering data from damaged drives.

Sony memory stick pro 128mb has docs on it I need. when i plug it in to laptop, it either doesn't register or says USB device not recognised. help!!!


I'm assuming the docs are important. What I would try to do is buy an external reader which cnnects via USB and hope that it is the port on the computer that is not working.
Sony MRW62E/S1/181: an external memory card reader/writer that can address 17 different memory card formats. It sports a Hi-Speed USB 2.0 interface and draws its power directly from the USB connection. The MRW62E/S1/181 can be connected to both Macintosh and Windows computers. Cost is around $30.

Windows shuts down when card reader or camera is plugged into USB


Some software programs monitor for removable drives which are not used. When you plug in your camera or memory card or memory stick, It comes up as a removable drive. My wife's laptop with Vista Home Basic had a problem between her secure memory stick and InCD. BSOD would cause restart the computer when stick was plugged in. I temporarily disabled InCD and memory stick works. Funny, though, her machine had no trouble with her camera. Go figure.

What is the usb port for and how do you work the sd port


Ok basically the USB port is so you can plug a USB memory stick into it and it will play mp3 music files off the USB Stick, or will play off any other USB Mass Storage Device, you can buy these on ebay very cheap. The SD slot is so you can plug an SD Memory card into it and it will work the same as the USB port, SD Memory cards are also very cheap nowa days and are often used in digital cameras. Hope this helps
