Canon zoom browser 4 on network drive or spoof local drive.

Question: Canon zoom browser 4 on network drive or spoof local drive.

For some crazy reason (I'm sure there is a good one) Canon Zoom browser, which is the download software for canon digicams, does not want anything to do with network drives.

I have bought an a75 for our service department to takes fotos of cars. They will probably take around 100 shots a day, and want to spend as little trouble as possible downloading them, so I setup the autodownload and date stamp feature in the software which works great. the only problem is, we cannot save to a network share. Why not use a mapped drive you say? well, you can't even do that. so.. I found a little prgram called "VDC" (Virtual Drive Creator) which creates a virtual drive. the zoom browser software CAN see this drive. problem is, VDC does not want to make a virtual drive out of a network share or a mapped drive. ARGH! lame. so, after a bit of digging, I found that VDC utilizes the SUBST dos command which basically does what I just explained. the command does work with network drives, but when you run it, the new drive appears as a mapped drive. no good for zoom browser. basically I'm in a bit of a pickle. I can map the my documents folder and save to it, but I'd rather not. any suggestions?

Essentially,
for some unknown reason canon zoombrowser ex has stopped openning. When I double click the icon, it opens to a white screen with nothing in but then fails to load. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling twice and have also tried a system restore to 3 days ago however nothing has worked. Have also downloaded the latest driver from the canon website however this hasn't fixed it.

If anybody has any suggestions, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

I have been wondering lately if a certain kind of program exists. Basically, I have a NAS and I'd very much like to know if it was possible to fake, completely, to the system (I use windows 7) that it was a local drive. Ideally I was thinking of something that would create a virtual drive, then be instructed to pretend as though everything that it can see on some other network drive was actually present on the virtual drive. I know it's at least possible, in general - offhand, I have a copy of Daemon Tools which obviously takes an ISO file and pretends as though a virtual cd drive on the system contains the information, though I don't know if there is a program (or method) for my specific purpose.Any help is appreciated!message edited by PaulN01

We need to map a network drive from one server to another, and make it appear local on the second machine. Any suggestions??

The IBM UniVerse application we're using only wants to save log files to a local drive; however we want them stored on a second machine in case of a failure of the first. Drives C, D, and E are available for storing these logs, but the mapped network drives X, Y, and Z do not appear in UniVerse's file browser.

We tried dropping a link from the Z into E and having it log to E:\LOG (really Z:\LOG) but UniVerse just erased the link and created a new directory named LOG, and put the log files there (on E).

Is there any way to tweak or fool Windows Server 2003 into showing the network drives as local??

I have a NAS with two mirrored drives.

I also have an online backup service. Unfortunately, this backup program will only back up the local harddrives on my PC, C: D: ... It will not back up the NAS that I mapped to Z: on my PC. This seems to be by design.

Is there any way to trick XP into thinking that the Z: network drive is a local drive? That way, my online backup program would work.

Would there be other adverse effects to this trick?

Hey guys, im looking for some help with network drives. I am currently running win7 ultimate and am trying to share 2 drives: One HDD for movies and the other is a virtual BD-ROM drive. Problem is, i want to set it up so that the users on the network can have their own username and password to log in without having to create new local accounts for each one. Is there a way to do this? Another acceptable avenue would be to have "invisible" local accounts, which do not appear on the login screen.

SO, question is: Can i do it? and if yes, how?

Thanks for any help.

Answer:Network Drive Credentials without local accounts

Yes there is a way to do it, but you have to create local accounts. These accounts can be hidden from the login screen. See this technet. If you do not wish to create local accounts, there are other alternatives. Have you thought of setting up your own NAS server? You can buy one online or build your own (I think building your own is more fun), and it is better to have a dedicated machine for file sharing because you don't have to have your laptop/computer on all the time

I would like to know if there is a way to get Windows XP pro to think that a map network drive is a local hard disk. I'm trying to get my ftp Filezilla server to show a folder from another computer on my network but the software is not compatible with network drives, it really needs to be a local drive to work. Links don't work either.

I've tried the "subst" command in DOS but it only creates another map network drives.

Is there a software be like Deamon Tools (for virtual cd) but for network folder instead of iso file ?

Thank you!
 

Answer:Map network drive as local hard disk

Mapping a network drive makes a network share work like a local disk. A network drive is the closest you will get to a Local Disk without putting the other drive in your local pc.

Hey all, stuck against a bit of a wall, here. I have a bunch of vista computers and I need them to automatically map a network drive whenever the user logs in.

In the past, we've used a login script and a .bat file to create the shares. But we're getting ready to switch over to vista, but the login script doesn't work under vista.

I've heard that its better to use Group Policy for this, but I cannot figure out how to do it using LOCAL GROUP POLICY. I've found about 100 or so guides for doing it using active directory/serverside things, but we're not on active directory, so that's not an option.

I'm sure there is a policy somewhere, can anyone direct me to it?

Answer:Local Group Policy to map a network drive?

When you map a drive on the workstation, and put a check in the box Reconnect on Logon (sign-in) it will reconnect every time.

Hi,

I have recently moved to a wireless broadband connection. The connection is slower than my cable internet in my previous residence. So, I'm noticing some things while I work. One thing is that every time I access my local hard drive, there is network traffic and I have to wait for the network. This is while I'm connected to a VPN. The folders I'm accessing are not synchronized off-line files, either. I do have one mapped network drive.

Anyone know what would cause Windows XP to instigate network traffic when accessing a local drive and how to limit it?

Thanks,
Paul
 

Answer:Network traffic while accessing local drive

This is actually a situation I ran across some time back. Every local access was trying to touch a network drive, and when that drive wasn't available, it got ugly! In my case, it was a errant path in the registry that was being searched every time I opened a file locally.

Hi,

I have a situation where a lot of data is being written to a small partition, and every time it fills up I have to go and remove things that I do not want to remove.

I am wondering if there is a way (hardware/software) that anyone knows of to do a sort of RAID setup to combine the local disk, and a network share into one virtual disk.

Ideally I would like the local disk to be used first, when it gets full I want the files to be written to the network share. All this needs to be accomplished while making Windows NT think that it is one drive.

The application that needs to write to this "virtual drive" can not be easily changed to switch between two drives, so it needs to be seamless to Windows. Speed is not a huge concern at the moment.

Any help or pointers to where I might find more information would be greatly appreciated. If I am crazy and asking for something that just is not possible, that's OK too I guess.

Hi everyone! First post, let's go!

I am trying to find a solution to transferring large files (100+GB) between myself and a client of mine at a different location through the internet. The easiest one I have found was through a Private Network through Logmein's Hamachi, as you can browse other connected computers' files through this network.

Of course, to show the shared drives by the host computer, you need to input a username and password through the UAC. Obviously, if I insert my own username and password, I can see the folders I've shared. However, how do I configure a username/password for my client? Are these users the same as local users? I would like to avoid having to make a local user for him on my own computer.

Just for reference, I have no control over my network I am connected to, so no FTP, no port forwarding etc.
OS: Windows 8.1

Thanks for any help in advance!

We recently installed an XP Pro computer on our LAN (100Mb Ethernet). Performance on that machine has been the pits! Yesterday we noticed that every time that computer loads a program from its local C: (programs) drive or calls up a large file from its local E: (data) drive, the packet light goes crazy on the hub. This not only happens with absolutely no network activity generated from other nodes, it happens with other computers powered off.

It seems that XP is configured to access its own local drives via the LAN! If that is the case, how did we manage to configure it that way and how do we nondestructively correct the problem?

Is the poor performance and heavy LAN traffic perhaps just one of the wonderful XP services consuming resources needlessly informing the rest of the LAN world of something irrevalent?

I use a few programs that for whatever reason will not talk to mapped networked drives but will talk to local drives.

This is extremely annoying because at least one of them is a backup utility.


What I'd like to do is trick windows into thinking a networked drive is local.


Any means you know of to get \\computername\sharename to be treated as a local harddrive would be appreciated.


Why any program would refuse to talk to networked drives is beyond me. The whole point of mapping drive letters was to get dos programs to talk to remote drives. So why would some windows programs have an explicit inability to talk these drives?... the only thing I can think of is brain damage.

Are, the joys of Dos ! You used to be able to map a networked drive with a MAP command and can still do the same thing in Windows Explorer. It is under Tools - map networked drive.

I've just bought a Win-10 PC, so I have only been using Win-10 for about a day.

I want to transfer Data from my Win-XP computer to my Win-10 computer. I've created Shared Drives on each computer, on the Win-10 the shared network drive is - win-c - and I created a shared drive on my Win-XP computer called - XP-E.

In my file browser under Network (W10) and under My Network Places (XP) I can see the drives I created.

BUT ... I can't see them on the other computer, the remote Network Computer. That is on Win-10 I can't find XP-E.

My old XP computer had THREE Partitions -

C: = OS and Ultilities
D: = CD Drive
E: = Programs and Data
F: = Long Term Data Storage

On the new computer (Win10) I created two new Folders simply call "E" and "F", I want to transfer all the DATA on drive E:\ on the XP computer to the C:\E\ folder on the Win10 computer.

I also Mapped a Network Drive in Win10, for the folder C:\E\ which I named Z:.

But, what I need is to see those drive letters (Win10) on the WinXP computer so I can transfer files to them over the Network.

I'm sure what I am missing is relatively simply, but so far I haven't found it.

I created what are suppose to be Shared Drives in both the Win-XP and Win-10, and I can see them on the computer I created them on, but I can't see them on the other network computer.

Did I explain that well enough? Does anyone have any thoughts.

I was transferring a lot of files from one external local drive to another one.

I then turned off my network connections (WiFi and ethernet). Suddenly the transfer rate dropped to 0 bytes/sec. About 5 minutes later, it kicked up to 1.5 mb/sec, then a few seconds later dropped back down to 0 bytes/sec for several minutes.

This cycle just keeps repeating itself like it is trying to contact the outside world about the files it just transferred and is repeatedly giving up once it times out.

I'm nervous now that my private file system information is being sent somewhere.

I have a Samsung s2 1tb external hard drive.

Today when I hooked it up to my laptop it would not load. It will shows local F drive when it usually will say samsung Drive.

A pop up box will then appear stating "you need to format drive"

I know if I reformat it I will lose all my data which I will not do.

When I look in device manager it states that the external hard drive is installed.

I attempted to go through start menu and type cmd then F: and it states "The volume does not recognize this system file. Please make sure all required system drivers are loaded and the volume is not corrupted."

PLEASE HELP I DONT WANT TO LOSE ALL MY FILES

Answer:Samsung s2 external hard drive not loading showing local disk F drive

With the external drive connected, Go to Disk Management (Start > type: "computer" > click on Computer Management > click on Disk Management)

Determine which disk is the external drive.
If the external drive shows here as a healthy volume, Right click on the large box to the right of the "Disk 1" / "Disk 2" lable and choose: Change Drive Letter and Path.

If there is nothing but a grey box or "Unallocated Space" next to the disk number then Right click on the disk number (the box) and choose: Change Drive Letter and Path.

Change the drive letter to anything else > OK.

If you can't do any of the above post back. If you can post a screen shot of the Disk Management window that can help.
Do not initialize the disk or format it or you will lose your data.

Hi

domain users can read. write, modify, create new files/folder on d drive but do not rename or delete files/folders. For that i set following permission on d drive:
Full control for domain admin, local administrator, system
for domain users allow modify, deny delete and delete subfolder and files 
Owner of the d drive is domain administrator
After that user can read files but at the time of saving files the error is "you dont have suffieceint permission to modify files on this location" and o kb file created but if user try to save second time than the file will save on that same location
So  user need to save files two time and one file created with 0 kb. 
Please suggest a solution. Thank you.

I have a home built PC about 4 years old running Windows 7 64bit

My boot drive (C) has always been a SSD drive and my system is running fine.

I had a hard drive failure about 30 days ago, that corrupted my boot drive when it failed.

I have recovered from backup using Shadow Protect Desktop and a Bare Metal recovery

I am in the process of replacing my older drives that are out of warranty so I don't have any further issues.

All of the new drives are either 3TB or 4TB. I am formatting them as GUID drives and so far have had no problems.

My question is what is the purpose of the Local Disk partition that I see on each of my drives. Is it necessary and why would a drive have two local drives. I have one 4 TB Drive (Seagate Hybrid) that has a 128 MB Partition and a 100 MB Partition (both say Local Drive) plus the active partition of 3725.7, formatted NTFS.

Not a hugh issue, but I wanted to know if it could create any problems or prevent them in the future.

Thanks

Elliot

Answer:Purpose of Local Drive (partition) on GUID Drive - Do I need it?

The 128MB partition is an MSR - Microsoft System Reserved - partition.

For an explanation please see my post here Weird hard drive partitions

I still do not know what is that 100MB partition and wherefrom it came.

Take a 4TB drive. Using Partition Wizard, delete all the partitions including the 128MB and 100 MB partitions and then format it again as a GPT drive.

After format completion, post a screenshot of the drive as it appears in Partition Wizard.

I need to use my USB flash drive to set up my wireless network, to transfer files from one PC to another. The drive appears in my computer as a local drive rather than a removable one. That means that the network wizard (XP Home) doesn't list it as an option to transfer files. I think I am missing something obvious but can someone give me a nudge in the right direction?ThanksDon3002

Answer:USB Flash drive showing as local drive

I don't know how I did it, but it now appears as a removable drive. Thanks anyway.

It's been close to a year now that I've been wanting to organize my photos/documents to be all in one place. I've posted other questions regarding this thru the year and am finally going to take the time to get things right in the next week or so. Currently I have all my photos/documents on a local drive AND on onedrive. I back up the local drive to an external hard drive.
This is probably (hopefully) a simple question and it's pretty much the last question I have. If I delete all the photos/documents on the local drive (as the same files are available on onedrive) and change my back up path for the external hard drive to back up the onedrive folder instead will those items in the onedrive folder be available on my external hard drive as an actual photo/document or is onedrive on my computer mearly a placeholder? I hope I make sense. I view my local files as actual physical photos, want to make sure onedrive is the same and not somewhat like a ghost image. I want to know that if microsoft's onedrive servers blew up that I could go to the "local" onedrive folder on my computer and/or the folder on my external hard drive and find the same photos/documents and be able to print them, send them, etc.
Thanks for any help.

I can access it. what should I do in order to get access to the local and external drives in normal mode

thanks in advance

Answer:local drive and external drive is not accessible

Hello ahmadysf!

Has anything happened before this problem? Un update, power surge, reformatting etc.?
Have you tried:
- checking all cables (when PC is powered off), reseating them, making sure they are working and correctly connected
- going into BIOS and checking if the drives show up, their settings and mode, they'd need to be in AHCI mode

Also, has this problem happened after installing something?
If so, go into safe mode, uninstall it, use a software to clean the registry from the entries associated with the certain software(s) and then boot normally.

Hope any of this helps!

Answer:OneDrive vs. Local drive and back up drive

OneDrive uses selective sync. Every file, whatever file type shown in %userprofile%\OneDrive folder is physically located on your computer and when copied to another location on your local machine, the actual file will be copied / backed up.

To select which files you want to be synced to local computer, see this tutorial: OneDrive Selective Sync - Choose Folders in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

Notice that removing or renaming a file in OneDrive folder also removes it / renames it on OneDrive cloud. Copying a file to another location will keep it on OneDrive, moving it to another storage location will remove it from OneDrive.

I just reinstalled Windows XP Pro SP2 on my brother's computer. He's used to having one or two "network drives" that actually are just mapped to local folders on his computer. Since reinstalling the OS, he's not able to map a network drive to a local folder. Does anyone know how we can get shortcuts to individual folders to show up in My Computer as drive letters?

This really isn't as small of a thing as it sounds like. This functionality is very important for the work my brother does. He doesn't actually *require* it, but it will save him a lot of time.

Thanks for any ideas,

Hi all;

Maybe this's just a simple question for experts in storage sharing.
Why are SAN drives recognized as local drive while NAS drives aren't?
I knew that SAN uses block level transfer to transfer data while NAS uses file level transfer. Does this has anything to do with why SAN drives and NAS drives are recognized differently by the computer? If yes, how?

Thank you.

Answer:why is SAN drive recognized as local drive while NAS isn't?

You are on the right path - a SAN allows you to move the block level device outside the computer but still uses the underlying SCSI commands to talk to the device; a NAS device has a file system already laid on top of the drive and the NAS system is what uses SCSI to talk to the drive, your computer is simply mounting this device and is using CIFS to access the data.

Hope this helps.

I recently purchased a 32 GB San Disk Flash Drive. The security files pre-installed on the drive were junk, and I could not delete them so I formatted the drive to remove them. This cleaned the disk, and it holds data, but I'm not sure if this is part of my problem. I am trying to load my copy of windows 7 onto this disk, and using the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download tool, I can select my ISO file, but when I go to select my USB drive, my computer does not recognize the flash drive as a flash drive. Is there a way to change the Flash Drive so Windows will recognize my Flash Drive as removable media? Smaller USB drives still work on my computer, so its not the computer.

Hello,

I've been dealing with an issue for a couple of weeks now it's driving me insane. I consider myself pretty advanced in computer knowledge however I don't know how to go about solving this issue.

I have a D-Link DI-624 router which is connected to a Cable Modem (Motorola SB5100).

Connected to this router, are:

- My PC via LAN port 1
- Wireless Macbook
- Wireless PC
- Wireless Laptop
- My iPhone

There is also an Asus repeater to boost the signal range around my house (ASUS WL-330GE). Both my repeater and router have the most up-to-date firmware.

My problem is this:

Sometimes when I load up uTorrent and Peerguardian, I will be knocked off the network temporarily. This affects everyone. At first I thought uTorrent was connecting to too many peers at any time so I lowered them. I keep lowering them and it's not fixing it. Now even when I stop using uTorrent, the problem persists.

At random intervals, the router will reset or reboot or something causing ALL connects to be temporarily lost until it reboots. My router logs SPOOF attacks but i'm using WPA rather than the weaker WEP so i'm not entirely quick to believe a script kiddie is messing around with me.

Answer:Spoof Attacks on Network knock off internet for everyone

Okay the MAC address belongs to my repeater. But it's necessary that I have the repeater on.

Why is the repeater detected as a spoof attack?

Edit: Okay I added the MAC address to a Static DHCP Client List, hopefully instead of requesting for a LAN IP from the router several times, it will be assigned a Static IP. Maybe that'll fix it.

I bought a Canon Canoscan LIDE 200 flatbed scanner a month ago to replace another Canoscan that died after 6 yrs of constant use. It scans faster than the old one, easier to use & I get great photos. However, I'm now having a problem w/the drive. I close down the scanner at end of the day along w/all other open programs. Last wk when I tried to scan something I got a msg that the scanner drive could not be read. I found instructions on Canon site to unplug cord from scanner, download new drive, replug in scanner. The scanner worked fine rest of that day. Couple of days later, same thing - drive not recognized. I reloaded it again & scanner worked. This has now happened 4 times. I'm going to leave the scanner program open tonite to see if that helps. Reloading drive is not really difficult, just aggravating & time consuming. I can't find any help on Canon site other than download new drive; also can't find any way to contact Canon Support. The scanner uses MP Navigator EX ( I don't really know what that is). Old scanner used ArcSoft. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Has anyone been able to get a Canon USB printer (MP530) to work if their system drive is anything other then C:\

Doing a complete re-format for a printer seems asinine.

I see the "USB port" file created in what would be the C:\ drive (C:\USB port), but the registry has no knowledge of it as that I would just move it to the system drive and edit the registry to point to it.

Any ideas other then the obvious of reformat/re-install?
 

Answer:Canon MP530 & system drive other then C:\

You'll find many programs demand there be a C drive, there's no way to re-assign the that drive letter without nasty registry hacks and they don't usually work anyway and sometimes end up corrupting the system and rendering it unbootable.

The trick to avoiding this is to disconnect any and all removable media drives from the computer prior to installing Windows.

Hello guys, I've been racking my brain trying to solve this problem for months, with no posted internet solutions working.

Problem: Attempting to copy files from a mounted network server to an HP Ultrium 6250 tape drive results in Windows security errors and prevents copying from working. It appears to be a mix of internet security settings
or permissions related, and nothing changed has worked yet.

Running Windows 8.1, and the drive has simply been mounted via map network drive as the IP of the server \\192.x.x.x with appropriate credentials. The system is able to work with files in every other regard, copy and paste locally, etc. Trying to
do the same through the tape drive is the only related "Security error" we've encountered.

This is what happens:

I've connected an external USB drive, but when I go to My Computer it shows it as a network drive. In addition, it gives it the same name as the mapped network drive that already exists there. When I change the name of the external drive there, it then changes the name of the mapped network drive, so again they both have the same name, although the drive letters are different. Any ideas how to make the external drive appear where it belongs in My Computer, under Hard Disk drives?

I'm also seeing some other odd behavior on this computer, and since it may be related I'll mention it. When I first opened my Computer, it showed the same networked drive repeatedly, with every letter from F thru Z. I deleted them all except one, but now every time I reboot, I get a logon connect dialog that asks to reconnect one of them. So with each reboot it is adding back one of the duplicate mapped networked drives that I had deleted. I expect it will eventually end up with all the alphabet letters like it was when I first sat down at this computer.

My main concern is to get the external hard drive to appear where it belongs.
Thanks

Update: see iperf tests below. Issue appears to be OS-related. No speed problems on Linux boxes, Windows causes upload slowdown.

Issue: using local gigabit network uploads peak at 7-10MB/s while downloads fully saturate the link at 110MB/s. This happens whether connected to a switch or with computers connected directly, as well as with a NAS. Both NICs confirmed to connect at gigabit speeds. I've updated NIC drivers to the latest. I've tried enabling and disabling Large Send Offload. Netbios is enabled.

I've tested laptop-switch-desktop, laptop-switch-NAS, desktop-switch-NAS, desktop-laptop, desktop-NAS and laptop-NAS connections using various cables and the end result is the same - downloads are at full 1000Mbps speed and uploads barely reach 100Mbps.

Answer:Local network: uploads way slower than downloads on local network

Hi there

Not sure if the router has something to do with it - especially if it's an el-cheapo one from a typical ISP. There might be some fiddly parameters and also full duplex mode should be used.

Even though you are on a LOCAL LAN the whole kybosh still has to pass through the router -- that's the next place where I'd start looking for problems.

If you've directly connected the computers - via a "reversing LAN cable" and you aren't getting full speeds there's got to be something in the parameters of the NIC's.

I suspect that since until recently it was hard to get anything like 100Mb/s on UPLOAD this issue was never really dealt with - download speeds of nearly 1Gb/s have been available for ages now so the hardware is well fit for purpose.

Try also say using an FTP client l to transfer files rather than File explorer and see if that makes any difference.

Filezilla (it's free and has both a client and a server version).

FileZilla - The free FTP solution

Another issue could be the speed and buffer size of the HDD's themselves -- WRITE might be really slow which will kill your upload speed -- READS are often very much faster. If you've got an SSD connect say to your NAS via SATA-->USB3 adapter cable and copy a say 4GB file to the SSD -- now try your upload from the SSD and see what speed you get to the remote computer - first over direct LAN cable and then via the router. Ideally you should use an SSD on each end to test of course -- note ... Read more

Hi,

I have just upgraded to Windows 7 from XP.

Everything is working OK but My hard drive letter is now H not C

Why has this happened?

Is it an issue?

I'm concerned that it will mess up my iTunes library and generally confuse things.

Answer:Local drive is H not C?

This can sometimes happen when doing an upgrade type install from inside an existing OS.
The only sure way to prevent this is to install fresh from external media

The best way to deal with a dual boot is to keep all your data on a separate data partition which can then be assigned the same drive letter from within both OS's.

You can then store things such a the iTunes library and your documents on the data partition - a secondary benefit of this policy is that if you lose an OS you are less likely to lose or corrupt the data

If this is a single OS situation then it should not cause any issues for correctly written software and their installers - however a program that assumes a system drive is the C: drive may have issues

I go through Manage then Disk Management ect and assign a Drive letter to the USB thumb. I dont want to do this if I dont have to. I also dont want to have the IT guys remap the entire network if possible. Is there a way around this.
I want to be able to just plug in a thumb drive and have xp see it without going through disk management to change a assigned letter.

Thanks

Someone please help me.
I am trying to set up our server which we have on my sisters new laptop. when I go to 'map network drive' and click 'browse' the server called 'BGE-B-NAS' doesn't appear on the list. I have tried multiple times and nothing seems to be working. I also tried to type it in manually but it just said that 'windows cannot access \\BGE-B-NAS\Companydata'. Is it to do with the fact that this is a laptop and it is using the wifi instead of being wired?

Any help would be very helpful and thank you in advance for the help.

This is a weird one. When I install Iomega zip drive 100 with the proper drives the icon replaces one of my network drives. Than when I click on the icon it goes to the zip drive and not my network drive and am unable to get the the network drive now. The zip drive shows up on the device mgr as a driver. When I uninstall the zip drive all goes back as it should the network drive works
Running XP Pro 1gb ram 3.0 cpu. I remember reading a while back about a reg issue with this problem but for the life of me I can not find it or the fix.

Thanks for any help
 

Answer:Zip drive icon take my Network drive link

Mjack,

Zip drives like to assign their own drive letters and override everyone else.
Iomega recommends that you change the other drive letters, however in XP you should be able to assign a specific drive to the Zip. If you assign a drive above the network drive letters it should not interfere.

If this is not your problem please give more details, like what type of interface your drive uses.

Regards,
Roger

Question: Zoom Browser EX

I have Zoom Browser EX. It has always worked well...I don't know what changed. When I upload all the photos off my memory card, I can see them on the screen however when I click on them so I can save them or get a better view of them, nothing happens.
The picture just seems to be highlighted in gray/white. It looks like I am about to select it and then nothing. If I right click I can e-mail the picture but this is not how it used to work and I don't like doing it this way.

I would appreciate advice from anyone who has familiarity with this program.

Thanks,
K
 

Answer:Zoom Browser EX

Hi,

You could try uninstalling/re-installing Zoom Browser? This might fix the bug and it's worth a try.

If you're using Windows XP you can upload the pics from your digi camera without any other software needed.

I have ZoomBrowser but uninstalled it and don't really miss it as XP's inbuilt camera software works fine.

Question: Zoom browser help

I went to Germany this past summer and now 30 pictures are missing. I'm not very good at computer stuff so please try to be clear.
I did have a 'corruption' problem after I downloaded the pictures from my Memory Card.
The computer is fixed but some of my best pictures are inaccessible. I can 'see' the photos on Zoom Browser but the pixels are out of focus.
I tried to download the photos to make a Memory Book.
I deleted the photos from the Memory card before I had the corruption problem.
Any suggestions on what to do to recover the pics.
Thanks for your help.

I cannot figure out how I have an extra hard disk drive (e) appearing on my PC. (e-machine-XP Home Edit) I have my standard C-drive, A-drive & D-drive(CD/RW). The e-drive shows a size of 46.9MB. Is this drive necessary? Can it be removed and transfer its MB's to my c-drive?

I set up a pier to pier network between Win 98se and Win XP. The computer with XP has a CDRW and if possible, I'd like to network it so I can burn CDs through the network. Can I map this drive to my computer? I currently have it mapped, but it shows up as a network folder, not a drive. When I try to access it, it says that it is not available (or something like that). Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Answer:Mapping a local drive in XP

I was looking for similar solution for Windows until I finally decided just to use Linux. There's a Linux program called WebCDWriter that allows you to burn cds over the network using a simple web interface.

After being infected with a virus (Privacy Protector, + Error cleaner, etc.) and removing according to instructions I found on Bleeping using SDFix, I have discovered that I cannot see nor access my C and D drives from My Computer. They have disappeared and all I can see is My documents. How can I recover these icons? Thank you for your help in advance.(Moderator edit: thread moved to more appropriate forum. jgweed)

Answer:My Local Drive Has Disappeared

Hi,

SDFix has two .inf files in its folder named XP_CodecRepair.inf & W2K_CodecRepair.inf, If your using Windows XP then right click the XP_CodecRepair.inf and choose Install and it will remove the policy restrictions being added by this trojan, restore the Start Menu items and set it to show all drives, after installing the .inf file any available drives should then show up as normal under Start > My Computer.

Hi,
I have a local Disk (D), which it's content is from my previous PC (Drive C in my previous PC).
I don't need it anymore, and I think it is causing problems to Office.

I uninstalled Office, and I'm trying to format this D drive, before I install a newer version of Office.
But I get this message: "Windows was unable to complete the format".

When I try to delete the folders in Drive D I get this message: "You'll need to provide administrator permission to delete this folder". But I don't know where and how to do this.

Can you please advise? (I prefer to just format it)
Thanks,
Sharon

Can anyone assist me to change a Local drive to C from F? Basically I had trouble with my PC and it kept crashing. Microsoft helped to reset Windows 10 but the Drivers are not the same as they were before. Before they were: C (Local), D, E, F.

But now they are: F (Local), E, G

This also causes an issue with a particular file: PowerDirector 15 file that won't load up my project and is saying that the files are missing. Originally the files were saved under C Drive (Local)

I appreciate if anyone can help me.

Many thanks.

Answer:Help! Local Drive changed from C to F

A re-install is going to be your best bet. You can't re-assign the drive letter on a boot volume while it is in use. You would need to boot into a recovery disk or partition to do that. Once in the recovery media you would type
diskpartlist disk (to get available disks)select disk #list vol (to get currently available volumes)select vol # (for the volume you want to change)assign letter=C

The problem with this is you could potentially screw up the whole system if there are any registry paths that are pointing to F:\... for critical files as well as the BCD store may also point to F:\.....

Answer:problem with my local drive D:/

Hello Malakeh & Welcome to SevenForums!

Does this happens when you restart your machine? If it's some files in AppDATA or some folders as Windows use, it's normal. Same goes for games. You should delete your multimedia files, and have no problems with that, unless they're related to Windows, Games etc. then they'll be back probably. Usually, when you deleted a folder for a game to fix a problem, then you'll start it, and it returns!
So what files are you trying to delete?

Oh! And I think you posted in the wrong place as this is not driver related
Good luck,
Best Regards,
FredeGail

Select disk management for the left hane side then under the action menu / all tasks it lists change drive letter and paths.

Here's the thing, my computer has 3 drives in it. When I was downloading something in that particular drive, my computer makes some weird sound (sounds like when I'm starting my computer). Then their is an error saying that the file I'm downloading cannot be saved or something. After that I shut down my computer and the drive that I'm trying to download something to is missing now and my CPU is making weird noise. What should I do? :cry
 

Answer:Missing Local Drive

Is it just that drive that doesn't work? Or is it just your whole computer won't start up? The weird sounds might be your hard drive head crashing. I can't hear it so I can't exactly be sure. I'd back up whatever is on that hard drive first just to be safe, though.

My notebook Product No. is :  E1P04AVMODEL: 15t-j100     ABARev: 1962-110PCID: 0982110000405E00000320000 I'm getting this message when I access "My PC" and click on Local Drive D: "The local drive D is not accessible. The disk structure is corrupted and unreadable." This local drive D is partitioned with local drive C. Both drives are on SSHD, 1TB, Seagate serial asa disc drive.A 24GB SSHD is also installed with the 1TB HDD, but the SSHD is not visible in WIN10 in "My PC" (or, is it in fact this local drive D ?).During each reboot a message displays: "Repairing local drive D". But the local drive D doesn't get repaired. I just finished installing WIN10 and spent the day reinstalling all printers, scanners and software (In hindsight, I shudda dealt with this corrupt local drive first). Will I likely damage local drive C which has the WIN10 OS on it (I'm assuming) if I reformat local drive D ?

Answer:local drive D is not accessible

Hi, Fisrtly the local drive D: should have a name called RECOVERY. Please don't touch to it, it is one of the last resource when your machine gets into trouble and you wish to bring it back to Factory setting in a very quick way. It contains Windows, drivers and some pre-installed tools/apps. Only HP Recovery Manager can access to it with the right way. Normally after successfully create Recovery disc set or USB you can delete this partition but it is only 24GB over 1TB, it won't hurt your storage. Secondary: The hidden drive is for some sort of cache (or Intel Rapid Storage Technology), we can't touch to it, system will work itself out. Looks like your machine does not have Windows 10 pre-installed therfore C: won't work after the upgrade to Windows 10. Regards.
