How to get the pc games to the removable disc(J)


It is not completely clear if you mean large PC games or if you mean small PC games.

By small PC games I mean games similar to the games that come with Windows and that appear in the 'All Programs -> Games' folder. Such as 'Free Cell', 'Hearts' or 'Solitaire'.

By large games I mean games like 'World of Warcraft' or 'Mortal Combat'.

Also, do you want to install the games on your Flashdrive or store them there?

If you want to store a large game on your flash drive. Place the CD/DVD with the game on it in your CD/DVD drive and insert your Flashdrive in a USB port.

Open 'WIndows Explorer' or 'My Computer'. Locate the CD/DVD drive that you inserted the game disk in (most likely your D: drive).

In the 'Edit' menu select 'Select All' and then in the 'Edit' menu select 'Copy'.

Then locate the Flashdrive in 'WIndows Explorer' or 'My Computer'. And in the 'Edit' menu select 'Paste'.

While this will copy the files from your game's CD/DVD disk to your Flashdrive you may or may not be able to install the game from your Flashdrive.

You can use this same procedure to copy small games to your Flashdrive from your Hard Drive.
You will need to know where on your hard drive they are located. And they may or may not run from your Flashdrive.

Also you may be able to install and run games from your Flashdrive, When you run the Setup program from you game disk you will usually be given the option to select a alternative location to install the game.
Select your Flashdrive at that point and it may install correctly to your Flashdrive. If it does you should be careful to always use the same USB port or the game won't run.

Hope that helps.

It has an internal failure. Either bad solder or a bad chip. This is not a user repairable device. Your best bet at this point is a data recovery service.

Retrieve photos from sandisk 2.0 having forgotten password

Short answer is you can't. Its encrypted. If you could bypass the PW, it would not be very useful for protection. you may be able to format and use it as new, but not access the content on it currently at all.

Since it works with other systems there is a system incompatibility issue. Are you using the same OS in this machine as in the others where it works? Could it be that? Using XP? It has some issues with some usb devices.

My laptop is not able to detect sandisk cruzer blade (8gb) but my friend's laptop and my desktop detects it.

Your laptop may need drivers installed for your flash drive. Visit your USB drive manufacturer's website, find the "Support" page, and download the drivers for your specific drive. Be sure to know what version of your operating system you are running as it may be necessary to ensure you get compatible drivers. Install the drivers and try again.

Remove write protection

This could be a Windows Registry setting that disables you from writing to your flash drive (or formatting it). If you are running Windows after Win XP SP2, you can change that setting. To disable the write protection:
    1.From the Start menu, click "Run", type "regedit", and press <Enter> or click <OK>. 2.Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SYSTEM > CurrentControlSet > Control > StorageDevicePolicies. 3.Double click on "WriteProtect" and change the value to 0 (WriteProtect = 0 for disabled; 1 for enabled). 4.Close the registry editor and restart Windows. 5.After Windows starts, test writing to your USB drive. Important Note: Serious problems might occur if you modify the Windows registry incorrectly. **PLEASE** make sure that you follow these steps *exactly* and *carefully*. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it in case you have trouble so it can be restored. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, follow the steps as in the KB Article:
