Verify that the USB flash drive is actually the cause of the problem by inserting the drive into a USB port on a different computer.

Check to see if the drive remains inaccessible on the separate computer drive.

Plug the USB flash drive back into the original USB port if it still shows up as inaccessible.

Open the computers Start menu and then click on the My Computer button to bring up a new window with a list of the drives connected to the PC.

Find the Map A Network Drive button at the top of the new window.

Click on the button and wait for another window to pop up on the screen.

Click on the Drive Letter drop-down menu at the top left side of the window.

Select a drive letter that you want to use for the USB flash drive.

Click on the Browse button and then locate the USB flash drive.

Click on the drive and then click on the Open button.

Click on the Finish button and then restart the computer.

Return to the Start menu and then open the Control Panel.

Double lick the icon in the window labeled as Administrative Tools.

Scroll down through the new list of options that will populate the window and then double

click the Computer Management link.

Click on Allow if your computers operating system asks for your permission to open the Computer Management menu.

Find the Storage button at the left side of the window and click on it to bring up a new list of options.

Click on the option labeled as Disk Management and wait for the list of attached disk drives to populate the panel at the middle of the window.

Right click on the drive letter you selected earlier when you mapped the USB flash drive to the computer.

Click on the menu option labeled Format.

Make sure that the File System heading is set to NTFS and then click on Start to reformat the drive.

Restart the computer once the reformatting process has completely finished.

Attempt to use the USB flash drive again.

Purchase an entirely new flash drive if the computer still will not recognize the drive, as that will indicate it is defective or physically damaged somehow.

hope this helps

How do I connect multiple iPods to One Computer

<p>Suppose you have more than one iPod that you want your computer. Or maybe you have two people with the same computer, otherwise synchronize their iPods. There are a few different ways to go about it. Windows and Mac OS you can run multiple iPods with USB cables and your music library to open. But you can use these methods to various media files to synchronize multiple iPods. <br /> <p><br /> <p>Create separate iTunes libraries <br /> <p>1. Keep the "Options" key while you open iTunes on your computer, if you use a Mac the same way, hold down the "Shift" key while you open iTunes and Windows. This will be a new dialog. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Click on "Create Library". Name the new library and save it. iTunes will open this new library you created. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Open "Preferences". Do this by selecting "iTunes" and "Preferences" on a Mac, and "Edit" Preferences "in Windows. Click the" tab "Advanced. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Check the box next to "Copy files to iTunes Music folder when adding to library." Click "OK". This will ensure duplicate files are not included in your new library. <br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Add the files you want to add in your new library, which are the files you want to go to your second iPod. To do this, drag the files from your hard drive in iTunes. You can also choose "File" and "Add to Library". Add to your library until you see the way you want. <br /> <p><br /> <p>6. Connect your iPod to your computer via USB. Sync your iPod to your iTunes library. Quit iTunes once the synchronization is complete. <br /> <p><br /> <p>7. Repeat step 1 to re-open iTunes. Select "Choose Library". Now your original or the new library you created to switch between the music from your iPod library. <br /> <p><br /> <p>Create separate user accounts <br /> <p>1. On a Mac, select the Apple menu. Choose System Preferences. Select the "View" menu and select "Accounts." Click the "+" to create a new user. Connect your iPod to iTunes and sync with this user. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. In Windows, click the "Start" button. Go to the Control Panel. In "User Accounts and Family Safety", select "Add or Remove User Accounts." Click on "Create a new account." Connect your iPod to iTunes and sync with this user. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Log off your account and to switch between users. This way you can sync your iPod separately for each user. It can be useful if multiple users have different tastes in music. They may have their iTunes libraries and iPods. <br /> <p><br /> <p>Sync iPods with different playlists <br /> <p>1. Open "iTunes". Create multiple playlists to be synchronized with each of their iPods. For example, you can create a playlist of workout you just upload to your iPod nano, in turn, allows your entire library on your iPod touch. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Connect your iPod via a USB cable. You can do one at a time or simultaneously on a Mac Windows does not support synchronization of more than one iPod at a time. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Click on the first iPod in "Devices". In the "Music", select "Sync Music." Select "Selected playlists, artists and genres." <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Click Apply. This will start the synchronization process. Repeat this process for the other iPods. <br />

Where to find the I.P address (Windows Vista home premium)

If you need to find your I.P. address (Internet Protocol), simply click on the small computer screens at the bottom right of your taskbar, After you do that you will see information about your current internet connection and two options to either connect or disconnect from a network or to open the network and sharing center, click on the network and sharing center option.
After clicking on this option a new window will open with multiple options about your current network and sharing settings. About 3/8 the way down in the window will be information about your current network, you are going to want to click on view status. After you click this a new smaller window will open.
Once this window opens you are going to click on details, this will open another window. This is the last window and it will display all of the technical information about your current network. The I.P. address should be the fifth item in the list, it should look something like "IPv4 IP Address 123.456.7.8.

When I click on "My Computer" there usually shows the drives I have which is the "c" drive and the "d" drive. Suddenly I the "c" drive is gone. Maybe my kids touched the computer and accidentally deleted...

Do a system restore. Go to control panel and open it. Once open, click on system maintenance(opens new window) and click on back up restore center (opens new window)and when that window opens, on the left side of the window will be an option to " Repair Windows using System Restore." Click on that. A window may open up asking to continue, click yes and do a system restore back to the date when the "C" drive was showing. Computer should do a restart afterwards.

How do I capture images on my lenovo S10/Windows XP screen? (usage instructions) cruzer SDCZ36-004G-A11

Step 1: Insert your flash drive into your computer’s USB port.
Step 2: You may be presented with a window open that says “Auto Play
If this is the case, simply click on “Open folder to view files”. If you don’t have this window automatically open, open “My Computer”, locate and double-click on the appropriate device to open.
Most flash drives will be labelled as a Removable Disk but some will be labelled as a hard drive. If you have troubles locating your device, remove the flash drive from your computer, open “My Computer” and take note of the drives and devices already there, then reinsert your flash drive into the USB port and watch for a new device to appear. Take note of the name Windows uses to label the flash drive, Removable Disk (F:), for example. Double-click to open.
Step 3: Open the location of the photos and/or folders you wish to transfer to the other computer.
Step 4: Select the photos and/or folders. To select multiple images or folders, hold down the Ctrl key while making your selections.
Step 5: Right-click on your selection, choose “Send To” and then the appropriate destination (in my case, Removable Disk (F:). Alternatively, you can drag-and-drop your photos or folders into the opened flash drive folder, so long as both windows are seen on your computer’s monitor.
Step 6: Once your files have been moved over to the flash drive, click on the “Safely Remove Hardware” icon located in the notification area (bottom right corner of your computer’s monitor).
Select the device and click “Stop”. You may have another window open asking you to confirm which devices to stop.
Select the device from the list and click “OK”. You’ll then be prompted that it is safe to remove the device.

Hey 0836,

If the error message you are seeing reads as "QuickTime failed to initialize. Error # - 2096" you may wish to turn off Compatibility Mode for QuickTime, as doing so may resolve this problem.

You should be able to disable Compatibility Mode by doing the following:

1) Right-click on the QuickTime Player program and choose the "Properties" option from the menu that appears. Normally the application is kept in the C:\Program Files\QuickTime directory, but may differ if you chose to have the program installed onto another hard drive or in another directory.

2) Once in the "Properties" menu, click on the "Compatibility" tab.

3) Uncheck the box that says "Run this program in compatibility mode" if it is currently selected.

4) Click on the "Apply" button.

If QuickTime was not initially in Compatibility Mode, and you still receive an error message prompting you that iTunes requires Windows 2000 or later (or prompts you to make sure that compatibility mode is disabled in iTunes.exe), you may wish to try the following instead:

1) Shut down iTunes.

2) Click on the "Start" menu, then on "My Computer." You can generally also double-click on the "My Computer" icon on your desktop as an alternative.

3) Once in "My Computer," open the drive where Windows XP is installed. Typically this is the C:\ drive, but please remember that your configuration may slightly differ if you have multiple hard drives.

4) Open the "Program Files" folder.

5) Open the "iTunes" program folder.

6) Next, right-click on the iTunes program - this may be listed as either iTunes or iTunes.exe. Once you have done so, choose "Properties" from the menu that appears.

7) Click on the "Compatibility" tab, and uncheck the option to run in Compatibility Mode if it is selected.

8) Click "OK" to accept the new settings.

One of these two solutions should hopefully resolve the problem, but I would strongly suggest visting Apple's support homepage for more information if you are unsure of how to proceed.

Hope this helps you out.

Go Ahead. Use Us.
