Preferred Solution: samsung sgh a516 cell phone / pc suite music 2 phone "insufficient memory"

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

My Nokia Lumia 530 can't perform a phone update because of insufficient space.
With only 400 MB free space, because of a 2.83 GB system excluding all other things, it can't perform the update requiring 850 MB of space.
And because of that, I can't install other applications that require this software update.
Please, I need help.

Answer:How can I update my phone with insufficient phone memory?

If you have a micro SD card, move all you're apps, photos, videos, etc. onto the SD card. That should free up close to 1 GB of space for you to update your phone.

Answer:windows 7 caused a problem to my "phone memory"

Sounds like your problem is not with Windows 7 but the program you installed to read your cell phone memory.If you told us the name of the program, version etc might help.
You might check and see if the program is compatible with WIN7.

I recently built a new computer and installed Windows 10 Pro Creators Update (version 1703) and just noticed that I have never had icons for Phone or Cortana in my Settings. These settings are also not available in the search bar within Settings. See attached screenshots below.

Since I've heard of issues like this resulting from pirated software, I'd like to clarify that I purchased and downloaded the OS directly from Microsoft and installed it onto a brand new SSD and have had no issues with the machine once I got the overclock stable.

Thanks in advance for any and all tips!

Answer:No icons for "Phone" or "Cortana" in Windows settings

If you like you can update to Windows 10 Fall Creators Update using either Windows Update or Windows 10 Media Creation Tool this will resolve your problem.

I have already resolved this problem, but the situation was confusing enough that it seems to me to be worth posting the story in hopes of being of use to somebody else.

I have a CanoScan N676U scanner attached to a Windows 98 PC with no printer. Across my network is a Windows XP SP2 PC with a Canon BJC-4300 bubble jet printer. This configuration was working great until my Windows XP PC died and I replaced it with a brand new Windows XP SP2 PC.

On my Win98 PC I deleted the old printer definition, added the printer definition on the new XP PC, and verified that I was able to print. But when I tried to copy from the scanner to the printer I got an error message indicating that it could not print due to "Insufficient memory". Since I had the same amount of memory as always, this was perplexing. As it turns out, the message is completely wrong.

I resolved the problem by updating the Canon software on the Win98 PC. There are actually 3 things to download from the Canon web site: a delete-driver utility, a ScanGear Toolbox package, and the scanner driver package. The recommended sequence is:

1. unplug the USB cable from the scanner
2. run the delete-driver utility to delete the current scanner driver
3. install the new ScanGear Toolbox
4. install the new driver
5. plug in the USB cable

I find it bizarre that replacing one XP system with another introduced this problem, when the scanner was not even connected to the system that was replaced, and the printer did not ch... Read more

I'm installing a new laptop for a user whose old laptop is starting to break down. He needs Access 97 in order to be able to look into an old database that is not in production use anymore, and that we have been unable to correctly migrate to a later version.

I installed Access 97 from the original CD with the original product key, and the installation as such runs smoothly, but then when I try to run Access it immediately throws up an "insufficient memory" error (or rather, its equivalent in Dutch). Right after that it says that a system error has occurred or there was insufficient memory to run Microsoft Access.

On his old laptop, that has the same version of Windows XP, Access 97 does run properly.

hi everyone! i have a samsung sch u740 (alias) with verizon service and am trying to learn about if it's possible to use as a basic, dial-up modem ...and whether i will have to buy a $40/month data package from verizon to do so?
i've bought a data cable, plugged it in to my windows vista laptop, and the computer said it was detecting/installing drivers and seemed successful, then i went to the control panel, internet options, and the connections tab, and that's where it asks me for some dial-up phone number, username, and password ...i called verizon to ask what this information would be - because i'd read that you're allowed to use a "quicknet" (or something) slow, basic network for no extra cost, just your minutes, and all the phone person would say was that it will cost $40 a month...

Question: Cell phone memory

Recently returned my cell phone for exchange repair and had the phone guys delete all info/reset the phone before it was sent back. I had some "racy" picture of my wife taken during a vacation a couple months ago....did they go away or should I start to look for them on the internet.:-o

Answer:Cell phone memory


Difficult one to answer as it depends what was wrong with the cell phone, kinda would have to takes your chance that if the phone was exchanged, that it was destroyed, if it was repaired, they wiped the storage space.

Dunno what phone you have/had, so dont know what the storage method was, if it was internal memory then possible they wiped it, especially if it came back to you with no data in it, but if it was a internal plus a media card and your images where on the media card and you never removed it before returning, and it never came back with the phone then who knows where thats ended up.

Sadly thats the risk of using portable media devices these days like phones with cameras, that if you take those types of pictures and loose it, they may end up on the net, just depends on the person who finds the data.

My sister just got a brand new Dell Desktop......she uses a dial-up connection with a local ISP and had no problems with her old computer. Dell tech support has been of little help although they came out and even tried to correct situation putting a new modem in. It came pre-installed with AOL 9.0 and I am wondering if that is the culprit.....something is running in the start up menu referencing AOL......I am ever so confused! It also came pre-installed with Earthlink but do not believe that is the problem. We uninstalled AOL leaving the cab files but still the same error message when trying to connect to the internet. Modem Helper and Hyper=Terminal also show the same error message. Have tried everything to no avail and could really use some help.

Thanks in advance!

On my Target cartwheel app, it does not give me the option to scan product on its list of promps. My husbands Apple phone has it and no associates at Target can answer this question as well. HELP!!!!

Answer:Why can't I get "scan poduct" option on my target cartwheel app for my windows phone

The "App" on Windows Phone is just a web wrapper (a means of showing you the mobile version of the full website). As such it does not leverage any APIs (application programming interface) to hook into any hardware.
In plain English... It does not support camera function, thus no scan.

I noticed today an app called "English TV Channels" in my Lumia app list. I truly don't recall having installed such an app and in general I haven't been very liberal in installing apps. No-one else has access to my phone. I opened the app and it shows me ads and repeatedly asks to try "our new app: Youtube - Video and MP3 Download". The main screens contains some icons for TV channels, e.g. National Geography HD, but those don't seem to work.
When I tried to google some info on the app, I get some links to the WP Store and some other sites. But when clicking on those, I get messages like "not found" or "app removed".
Does anyone know what this could be about? Is there some way I could have gotten malware on my phone? Is there any way to find out if and why some app has been removed from the WP Store?

Answer:Found strange app in my phone - is "English TV Channels" malware?

Hello :) Well first of all you should uninstall the app, if you haven't done that already. Secondly go to and log in, then check your purchase history to see on which day you installed the app, maybe this will narrow down the list of "suspects" for you

I recently acquired an older Compaq PC (4090US model) with Windows XP, and had to install an internal V.92 PCI modem in it (it was a gift for someone who uses a dialup connection). There were only 2 slots available, one with a wireless modem card and another with a network card; I uninstalled the wireless card and installed the PCI card following the instructions that came with the CD. It appears that the new card has been detected and installed properly; however, I cannot connect to the internet using dialup, as I keep getting a "phone line is busy" error from the modem. I went into Windows "Help and Support" section and used their network diagnostics tool, and think I see the source of the trouble- both my new modem and a PCTEL PlatinumV90( ? I don't know if this was from an earlier modem card installed or if it's the LAN card?) are listed under "Modems". However, under "Network Adapters", there is still a listing for the Wireless connection. It lists as follows- [00000001] NETGEAR FA312 fast ethernet adapter
[00000011] NETGEAR WG311 v2 802.11 Wireless PCI adapter.
I can't find a way to modify this connection. Any ideas?

Answer:"Phone line busy" error after installing modem

I think (from a little web searching) that PCTEL PlatinumV90 is an integrated dial-up modem. Is it not working, and that's why you needed the PCI card? Maybe you can disable it in the BIOS.

When you "uninstalled the wireless card" did you simply physically remove it, or did you use Device Manager to uninstall it and then physically remove it? If the former, that's probably why you're still "seeing" it. If it still shows in Device Manager, try to uninstall.

Most apps will not open either. Using settings I tried the factory reset option, but the message appears that this is not possible at the moment. The battery will not charge either in this mode, the powerplug icon keeps blinking.

You need to get the phone into the boot loader by doing a soft reset and holding the volume up button as it vibrates (or just before as it varies from model to model) it also may take a few tries.
Hold the volume up button until you see the big nokia logo ontop of the screen when it goes red / burgundy. In order to avoid possible complications use the usb cable that came with your 1020 (if possible) as that is factory cable. Once in the bootloader mode, you can charge you phone.

EDIT: The problem seemed to solve itself.

I have had my phone about 2-3 weeks now and I haven't come across this problem in the time I've had it.

This happened about 2-3 hours ago though, and I've been trying to solve it since. I had my mobile phone (Sony Ericsson v630i) plugged into my laptop which I am on now with the USB cable that came with it as I was transferring files to and from my phone and laptop.

I left it in for a while a and eventually I was sure I noticed the transfer files window kind of flickered as if it refreshed or something, as I was looking at another window. I tried transferring a file but I noticed the window said no mobile phone is connected. I tried plugging in and out the phone on the laptop but I every time I try that now, I get the following bubble message at the bottom right of my screen:

"One of the USB devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned, and Windows does not recognise it. For assistance in solving this problem, click this message."

Clicking the message does nothing because it only says to plug it and and out, and if nothing happens then replace the device.

I tried doing a system restore, uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers, downloading the latest drivers compatible with Vista (I used the updated Vista drivers from the website to install it originally), and also tried reinstalling from the device manager.

Had yet another call purporting to come from MS "Vindows" security department. Led him (Martin?) on a bit and eventually told him that I didn't have a computer. He then got very abusive and called me a liar. He was almost threatening. Doesn't cut any ice with me but I help a number of oldies with their minor PC problems and I think one or two of them who are even older than me will feel quite intimidated by these nasty calls. I will contact my little group and assure them that the best thing to do is just put the phone down and forget them. I have the originator's UK phone number and will make a few enquiries to see if anything can be done to curb this practice.

Answer:Latest phone call from "Microsoft Security"

Forgot the phone numbers, usually, a black box masks the real number. Definitely assure your group to:
-- quickly, quietly, hang up the phone [do not blow whistles, do not curse, do not bang down the receiver]
-- do not engage in conversation or argument [do not curse, do not yell]
If one gives no opening to such callers, most if not all will simply move onto other possible targets.
The above is what my wife and I have done for some time now.

Hi Guys,
I have faced some issues with Windows 8.1 demo. So i have done a hard reset on my mobile.
I was happy that the mobile came alive and was running cool but then i found that the contacts from my outlook were not copied to the phone as well i was not able to add email accounts to my phone except microsoft's outlook which was enabled during the time of fresh startup. so i tried a lot juggling around it then finally gave up and decided to reset the mobile again.
So here i confronted the issue. I don't see "reset your phone" option under Setting >> about.
SO i saw some other option called "update demo content". i dont know what it is, but just i clicked on it and the phone started updating some stuff and then i came to know that its a retailer's package which make your phone one like we see in the store... running automatic videos and stuff.

When I plugged in my Win 8 phone into my Win 7 laptop USB port the laptop used to open a dialog box offering action choices. Now it just (1) sounds the two tones and (2) lists a Windows phone in the Open Devices and Printers icon. Windows Explorer won't display it.

It performs normally on my other two Win 7 computers and my Win 8 Surface Pro2 so it's obviously a setting on my most frequently used laptop.

Any suggestions for resetting to the original default?

Answer:Win 7 "Sees" Win 8 Phone on USB Port but Subsequently Ignores It

I know how to fix this for USB sticks it seems to be working with my phone as well.

This has happened to me plenty of times with USB sticks, and what I did to fix was:

1) Go to control panel
2) Search Device Manager in the search box and click "Device Manager" from the results
3) Expand "Disk Drives" for USB or "Portable Devices" for phones.
4) Locate your device, right click it, click "Properties", go to the "Driver" tab and click "Uninstall", which is a button located at the bottom of the window.
5) Unplug your device and plug it back in. Everything should be working just fine. (It will automatically reinstall the device software).

This uninstalls the device software which gets installed when you plug in your device for the first time. It doesn't affects the device's data.

I'll do this with my phone (android) and I'll get back to you in a second.

EDIT: I just did this with my phone (Xperia M).

The phone should be located in Device Manager, under Portable Devices.

I uninstalled the driver succesfully, plugged my phone back in and it automatically reinstalled it. Working just fine!.

I suggest you try this, it worked with my phone and it did not harm (I had no problem with my pc recognizing it, nor do I have now) but I believe theres a big possibility that its a driver issue, so I suggest you try it.

Greets all,
I'll just come out and admit that I'm a big Android guy, typically using whatever Nexus device came out that year. However, recently I've become more curious about what Microsoft has been doing with it's Windows Phone OS and would like to try one. I briefly used a Nokia 920 helping a co-worker set it up and was intrigued enough to want to see more.
My question is what is a decent WP device that won't break the bank (I'm not looking for a "flagship" device here), but won't be so underpowered and cheaped out that the experience is degraded or just painful?
I use T-Mobile in the U.S. so it would have to be a GSM phone and it would be nice if it used a nano SIM that my current Nexus 6 uses, but that isn't a deal breaker if not... I can always go get it changed out.
I doubt I am going to completely "jump ship" on Android, but I wouldn't mind testing the waters so to speak. Thanks in advance!

Answer:What is a good "Starter" device for Windows Phone?

A gently used T-MoUS branded Lumia 925 might be a good start. It's very similar to that 920 your coworker lent you and is arguably the best all-around Windows Phone of the last generation.
It would not cost much and would be 100% compatible with T-Mo including WiFi calling. It has a great camera especially in low-light-no-flash situations. The 1GB RAM means it qualifies for any App downloads...
Check out the specs here: Nokia Lumia 925 - Full phone specifications
Swappa might be a good place to start your search.
Edit: just get a nano to micro SIM adapter.

I couldn't realy make up my mind where to post this one but it is a subject directly linked to the computer and will be "THE" subject of 2007.

I am planning to buy a Dual phone later (analog phoneline and phoneline by Skype) but for now maybe wonna buy a specialised Voip,Skype phone.

Main reason Skype doesn't cost you anything extra.

- Using DECT technology for a quality connection in reach and sound
- I must be able to see the offline clients in Skype as well cause you can reach people who don't wonna be seen as "online" but actually are, like some of my friends.
- The must have a great reach or as good as possible, so I am reachable during my summer barbeques in the back garden.
- Would be nice if the Recieverstation is seperated from the Powerstation which you can put in your livingroom for instance away from your computer in any case.
(- Dual - is normal phoneline and a computerconnected in one apparatus, for me later but right now I don't need it)

I made a small reasearch on the subject and these seem to be the players on top of it:

85,- Topcom Butler 4872 (DECT - Dual)
80,- Linksys CIT300 (DECT - Dual)**
60,- Linksys CIT200 (DECT )**
45,- ASUS AiGuru S1 (VOIP)

** Recieverstation seperate from Powerstation is very handy

I will put more information about these telephones here later.

Any experience, suggestion tip or info are most welcome.

Answer:"THE" subject of 2007 - Any VOIP Phone experiences out there?

I don't have any skype experience, but I do have quite a bit of traditional VoIP experience. Asterisk is my best friend in this area. I've also had the displeasure of working with Avaya as well.

I'm wearing of skype simply because of the proprietary nature of their protocol. When it comes to voip, if it ain't open, I ain't interested.

Ever since, when I attempt to save a screen capture via the Snipping Tool, I get the attached error message: "There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive \Device\Harddisk2\DR2."

I reconnected the phone and properly ejected it, but the error message persists. I also searched all drives for \Device\Harddisk2\DR2 but found nothing. Can anyone advise how I can undo this error and resume using the Snipping Tool?

Many thanks!

Answer:"No disk in the drive" after disconnecting smart phone

If you press OK or Cancel does it allow you to choose another location?

Have you rebooted the computer? Does it work with the Phone connected and the drive mounted as USB Storage? \Device\Harddisk2\DR2 is likely the phone.

Does anybody know what might cause this? I don't use a windows phone, and don't have any microsoft accounts signed in to it either. It was only briefly displayed in the corner and had a few options regarding it of which I can't remember the name of. Could it be a bug? Any help would be great thanks!

For the past week, my Windows 10 phone (Nokia Lumia Icon) allows me to take a few pictures, then gets stuck "Saving". I can return to the home screen, do anything else, but if I return to the camera (hours or days later) it still
says "Saving". This reminds me of shooting rapidly with a different camera and filling the buffer, so I have to wait until it's clear. In this case, it never clears. I don't think I'm taking many I've taken fare more in a shorter time
in the past.

Is there something I can do to fix the issue without rebooting each time?

My phone has over 7GB of storage available. I can switch to video mode, but it still has the camera overlay with that message, so I cannot record video. The phone does allow me to capture a screen shot with the active camera image...but that still shows
the rule of thirds grid and all icons and the "Saving" text.

My friend has just got Talk Talk free broadband today. The router/modem is connected to the phone socket directly via the microfilter and the phone is plugged in as well.

The internet works fine but the landline phone does not ring when it's called although a call can be received and made just no incoming alert. The dial tone goes bit weird as well sometimes a engaged sound but sometimes the normal dial tone sounds.

The phone was plugged back into the socket alone and it rings fine and dial tone is normal.

Can anyone help?

for the past 3-4 days, none of my contacts have been showing up n the "People" section of my phone. However, I'm sure that they are stored in the phone because when I receive a call or dial out a number, the contact's picture and name show up.
I have neither added any new account nor deleted any old account when the problem had started occurring.
It fetched data from my Google, Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, Microsoft accounts along with the SIM card. right now, it shows blank, neither can I search any contacts. Adding a new contact also doesn't help as the same does display.
This is very annoying. Please help me.

I have a Samsung Ativ S Neo and an HTC 8XT, and love them both-- but I've been having an issue with the 8XT.
For some reason, no matter what I do, the 8XT will not connect to my Microsoft Account (it will connect to my Gmail though)--and therefore, I cannot download any apps. I had to factory reset it for another reason, and when I tried to download apps, that's when I noticed it-- that was in October. I used my friend's Samsung Galaxy Note 3 when it stopped working, couldn't stand Android, and just today got my Samsung Ativ S Neo- which logged into my Microsoft Account perfectly.
I want to clarify that the date and time are correct, I've hard reset the device numerous times, and there is no two-step password on my account, but it still says it "Can't Connect" to the Microsoft Account..
Any ideas?
Thanks a ton!

I would like to use an android phone because I can buy online in pesos whereas in apple its on dollars....

Answer:Can I use my games account from apple phone to samsung phone?

Hmm, this is a Windows forum.
You would probably be better advised putting this query in an Android/IOS forum.
Unless your Samsung phone is a Windows Phone?

This morning when I attempted to use my computer, any application (IE, OE, everything) I tried to start gave an error message (paraphrasing) “Insufficient resources exist to complete the requested task.” I thought a reboot was in order and when attempting that got “you do not have permission to shut down this computer” or something similar.

After unplugging and rebooting everything seems normal, but I’m going to run AV, anti-spyware and Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool.

Event log shows an error at the same time “the server was unable to allocate from the system nonpaged pool because the pool was empty”. Server? I’m not networked to a server….I’m sure it means something else, but what?

Recent software changes: Deleting MS Antispyware due to inability to upgrade to their new Beta 2 Defender (something do to with GDI, which I tried to fix by following info on the MS site), and downloading some critical updates from MS.

I’ve done searches on the errors and the answers don’t apply. I’ll probably revert my HD with an application called GoBack if the scans don’t find anything but thought you people might know what caused this.

Win2K is my OS.

I'll be checking for responses as I can't get response notices due to my ISP.

Thanks in advance,

Maybe because you installed it unofficially on an unsupported device?

I am hoping that someone can help me with what may be a complex question.

I have a spreadsheet, similar to the demonstration file I have attached. In it, there are a range of columns. One set of columns (A - D), shows a list of numbers that are references to items in a store, and it also shows their location in the store, so it acts as a floor-plan. The next column (E) lists those items again to show the dollar amount that those items have produced in total sales (F).

So, what I'd like to do is to add a conditional formatting to show me the "cold" and "hot" spots on the floor-plan so I can see where sales are most concentrated. I would assume that this would be done with a colour scale (using the range of values in column F to work itself out)?

Either way, the figures in column F would change weekly, so the relevant cells in columns A - D would need to automatically change when they're matching cells in column E - F change.

I hope this makes sense, as it's difficult to explain, but any help that someone could provide would be greatly appreciated.
