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 http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Go to cmd (run as administrator) -> go to its drive (e.g. H: where H is my flash drive) and type the attrib -s -h *.* /s /d
Now flash will show the data.
Your attrib spelling was wrong correct them
Try it.

When I insert my SimpleTech USB 2.0 256 MB Flash Drive into computer (os=Windows XP), it is recognized but the window that opens, entitled "mixed content" states "this disk or device contains more than one type of content. What do you want Windows to do?" and none of the contents of the drive are shown. Clicking OK or Cancel merely closes the window.

Clicking on the device from My Computer (under Devices with Moveable Storage) brings up the "Open With" window, asking what program I want to use to open the file, which is shown as "E:\"

However, if I open the Folders panel in My Computer and then click on "SIMPTECH (E)", then the full directory of files on the flash drive is shown and I can access the files.

What is corrupted? Do I need to reformat the flash drive, and if so, how do I do so?

Thank you
 

Answer:USB 2.0 Flash Drive won't show contents

When the window pops up asking you want you want to do,
you need to select an action from the list and click OK.
Like select open folder to browse files.
The default is probably do nothing,which of course
closes the window and does nothing.

I am running XP Pro SP1 and have a CD/RW a DVD/CD RW and a CD ROM drive. Problem is that when I place any cd in any of the drives they invariably dont autorun and on checking in 'My Computer' I can see all the drives but none of them will show that they have a cd in. If I right click and explore the contents of the cd can be seen. Not that big a problem but annoying nontheless. Any info as to how to fix would be appreciated

Answer:CD ROM doesn't show contents in 'MY COMPUTER'

Right click on the drive within "my computer" and see what is ticked / unticked. I cannot remember the exact terminology but you should see something like "enable autorun".

Hello, I'm using Windows Internet Explorer 8 and I have a strange problem. I'm using a web page that has a drop down box.
When I access this web page with Google Chrome it expands to show the content of the drop down list. On Internet Explorer the box is a fixed size so I can't see the full length of the contents. When I access this page from another computer it works fine. I don't know the difference. The one that works is a Windows 7 Machine running IE 8.0 The other computer is XP running IE 8.0. I tried it on another computer running Windows 7 and it doesn't work so it isn't the operating system. Are there any settings, plug-ins, etc that would make this work on one computer but not on another?
Thanks.

in the search results, if the searched word is found inside a file, a few lines of text are show with the word highlighted.

what's wrong?

Answer:search results doesn't show file contents found and not highlighted

i think i figured it out
right click on your drive and go to properties.. check "allow files on this drive to have contents indexed"
when it is finished doing that...
go to control panel, indexing options, make sure the folders you want indexed are selected.....then go to advanced and rebuild the index

When I press the FN key does not appear functional menu at the top of the screen. I installed Toshiba Value Added Package and Function Key but still missing.

Like this: http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/FAQ1A037W0000R01190001061708341.jpg

What driver I need?

The operating system is Windows 8.1 Pro and laptop Toshiba Portege Z930-108


Thanks!

Answer:Re: Portege Z930-108 - FN key doesn’t show flash cards

Hi

If you use Win8.1 you can use Functional kez on two ways and change two modes:
-special function mode
-standard F1-F12 mode

There is one difference. When you use special function mode you can use F keys only. With standard mode you must use FN+Fx key combination.

Flash cards that you can see at the top of the screen works with Vista or Win7 only. As far as I know since Win8 flash cards are not shown on the top of the screen anymore.

I tried to partition my OCZ rally2 16gb into a 12.9...gb NFTS and a 1.2...gb fat32 using Acronis disk director.

It started off as a 14.9gb NFTS (I don't have anything important on it and I RARed all data to my computer prior, so i'm safe to format it) before I tried to split a 1.25 gb chunk off. I got about 10% through before I got an "invalid format error" as shown in my logs. I retried a couple times, then skiped hoping it would still work. I got more errors and just canceled it after the first four.

Acronis showed it as two partitions, but the sizes were not as they should have been if the operation finished successfully. HPUSB format utility showed the drive as a single full sized drive. The original 14.9gb drive showed up, but said 0 bytes free, 0 bytes used and 0 bytes total. I did not check the contents, but the custom icon was still there so I assume my data was fine.

I reemerged the partitions successfully and both Acronis and HPUSB format show it as a single 14.9gb drive, with the correct amount of free space. The only problem is I can not see it on my computer. I rebooted and changed the name with acronis, but it still doesn't show. It shows up under device manager as a USB storage device. I've run the USB drive cleaner already, still not showing up.

I can still boot off my flash drive though, so I think it is still fine.

Hello

My power went out and when I restarted my computer, I could not get my Windows XP started. Tried safe mode, everything else, failed. Tried to start the repair install thing before backing up my data on the partition on which Windows are installed.

Now, I DID NOT start the Windows installation process.(Nothing deleted or added)

Because when I reached the part when it is supposed to show the already installed Windows versions, there was nothing there. All it showed was the partition where Windows was installed. My other partition's file system shows as NTFS, while that of this one shows Unknown and has totally free space. It is not supposed to be like this, so any help?

I did not proceed of course with the same partition and took it out of my PC. I also DID NOT format or partition it. Could Windows format it on its own when only starting the Windows XP setup booted from CD. I don't think so.

My questions are these.

Why does it appear like that when the Windows at least tries to start though doesn't run successfully.
I did not format or partition my hard drive, why is it appearing like this?
Would I be able to recover my data, even if the partition has become raw due to some virus or malware by using file recovery software such as Recuva?
Will I be able to access the data if I connect my HDD as a secondary disc to some other computer?
Will I be able to access my data without formatting it when using it as a secondary disc

Answer:Windows XP Repair doesn't show Already Installed OS + Drive Seems Formatted + Anxious About Data

The first thing I would suggest doing is to make an image of the seemingly empty partition to another drive. Then you can use TestDisk (it's free open source) to see if it can recover or repair the partition table on the image. If it can, great, if not, we can try recovering the data on the disk using Recuva, TestDisk or PhotoRec (all free).

Once we have a proper solution (and your drive seems to be physically healthy), we can apply the solution to the actual drive. This way we always have a good copy handy in addition to the one we are working on that may go bad.

If you'd like to try this, let me know if you have an external drive with at least 100GB of space on it (your partition is 98GB so it could be that big) or if you will be doing this by placing the drive in another machine that also has a separate disk with room on it for the image. I do not like to use the other partition on the same disk because we want to be as gentle as possible in case it is a problem with the drive itself.

You will need to be able to burn a CD and boot from it for the imaging tool that I prefer (free also) and it may take a few hours to make the image.

Let me know if you'd like to proceed with this and I can help you tomorrow (it is 1AM where I am now). From what you have said so far it sounds like we should be able to get the data.

Try, Control panel/performance and maintenance/System/Advanced/settings tab/performance and click on the settings button. Place a tick in the box, "Show windows contents". Make sure that the dot is in the top circle, [Let windows choose what's best for my PC] then click the "Apply button then "OK" button.

Hi Guys

Basically I logged off one evening last week and when I logged on the next day everything was ok, or so I thought. Checked My Documents and found that the contents of all folders was not showing or had been deleted?

3.5 Gig of music and hundreds of pictures plus the usual text and word docs.

I am hoping you can help? I have purchased and run Recover My Files but have not entered the Reg key yet so have not saved results.

I had about 1500 desktop wallpapers which were in my documents and they are still running so does that mean I just cannot see them or has XP stored them elsewhere and I should abandon all hope!!

I have posted the logs you requested below. I run AVG ADWARE AND SPYBOT all up to date but not run for a few days.

I bought a Toshiba Tecra M5 some 10 days ago and installed WinXP, Office 2003, .... As I remember, from the very beggining I had the following problem (it happens a number of times per day):

When I want to perform a task, for example: clicking on a subdirectory in the Explorer, it does not show its contents. After I do ctrl+alt+del, it shows the content. Then I just simply close the Task Manager window and continue working. This happens in Internet Explorer and other programs. What is the problem/solution?

Thanks in advance.

Answer:Tecra M5 Explorer does not show contents - needs ctrl+alt+del

Seems to be something wrong with the installed software and/or registry keys
Does this problem appear on preinstalled Toshiba image???
If not, then any 3rd applications which are installed on the notebook have a bad influence on the operating system
Check this!!!

So that they look like an open book with the page edges showing, and the folders inside also do too.

However for some reason if I create a new folder anywhere on my computer it does not show the folder as open with contents
Just a closed folder

The only way I can do it is to create a folder on the desktop, add contents and then add the folder to another folder

Hi Guys,

Apologies for repeating an old question, but I am trying to build my spreadsheet so that it auto-hides any rows were there is zero premium outstanding for a client.

I had gone through previous answers, and I had tried to lift and amend some VBA code to achieve this. However, somewhere within this code or the way I've implemented it, there is an error, because it's not showing of hiding any rows.

Can you please take a look at the attached and fix it (in order to hide all rows with a zero in column C), and maybe point out what I was doing wrong or omitting. I have anonymised my data.

Many Thanks
John
 

Answer:Show/Hide columns based on cell contents

Apologies... the criteria column is actually F, not C, the "outstanding premium" column. The intention being to display only those rows where client still owe premium

Hi,
I was planning on backing up some data so thought Id start with a home video DVD that has been burnt as a DVD that plays on DVD players. I copied the contents/folder to my desktop and seen that the folder is 4.2gb. I was planning on burning my data on to data DVDs as I thought you could get more on a DVD if you burned it as a data DVD. However, it seems that this will save me no space at all. Please can I ask where I am going wrong? Do I have to convert the data/video files to FLV or something? I am not too keen to do that as the quality will be lost.
Any advice would be appreciated, thank you.

Answer:DVD contents 4.2gb so how can I fit more on a Data DVD?

Ah, I see. Excellent, thank you.

Hello,

I have two problems:

1.
I have a lot of scanning data, all date and time stamped. All the scans show different status of shipped packages (all shipments have unique ID#, but there are multiple scans on route for all of them to track the packages). I want to find all the packages, for which there was "misdirected" scan, then for all of them, show the scan before. So, the end result would be all the scans that show for each package where it was misdirected (the terminal# of the scan before the misdirect scan).

2.
I want to automate this: run 5 queries every two hours between 8am and 10pm, copy and paste all results into Excel to specified areas (e.g. first query results to A1, second to A5000, third to A10000, etc. or onto different tabs), save as .csv to a specific folder, then send it as attachment to a given e-mail address. Even partial solution can be good.
I only know macros (somewhat), not as much VBA, so I tried that with the TransferSpreadsheet command, but can't get it work.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Well, I plugged my Imation 2GB USB/Flash onto my computer and now when I open it in windows explorer(the one by default), it just shows my flash name and then says that it's a shortcut. After I open that shortcut, the contents of my flash open up in another window.
Basically, the contents are buried inside a shortcut(made somehow) and the shortcut is what shows up first.
 
Is there any way to make it as it was before by deleting the shortcut or by bringing it back to original way it used to be?

"but on my laptop the contents are shown, and I'm able to add more files"
This is because the disk is no finalised
therefore is only readable on the drive yo first burn't it on.

Hi folks
About 9 months ago i purchased an external (usb) Dvd burner (Liteon Dvd Multi recorder). System reports it as an ATAPI ihas120 6 usb mass storage device. It's been working just fine and Xp recognised it as a cd rom drive and applied this driver to it and as i understand it, this is supposed to be.
I've been burning around 1.5gigs of home movies per dvd as a data disc with this drive and up until recently Xp could recognise the dvd when inserted and report\play all the files on the dvd disc.

My problem is that Xp now reports a dvd data disc as a cd data disc (UDF) that has over 1 gig of data and is full yet it only shows\plays 1 file whereas there are more according to my home LG dvd\vhs player.

I did uninstall some dvd software around the time when this first happened so it could be this, however i have reinstalled this software but it hasn't fixed this problem. After searching relentlessly online and finding some simular solutions and either reviewing and/or applying them it hasn't solved this. Microsoft suggested modifying or deleting the Upper and lower filters in the registry but they do not exist. A firmware upgrade is not possible because the latest firmware is the same as original according to the Liteon website and this drive. System restore is unable to restore due to that particular date and time being deleted. I've tried uninstalling the driver through device manager, restart system and reconnect the burner without any improvement.

I purchased a brand new Envy 750-109nb. The DVD-drive gave issues from the beginning as you could hear it having trouble to read inserted discs (audio, dvd video, data). It was workable for a few days, then nothing could be read anymore. A support ticket was raised and after performing DVD-drive diagnostics, it was clear that there really was a hardware issue. So the drive was replaced yesterday, great! However, now a software issue has appeared with the newly installed DVD-drive. I can enter a few discs (number is totally random, sometimes it fails after the first disc, sometimes I can change up to 5 times), you can hear the dvd-drive spinning as it should, but then suddenly the contents can't be read anymore. What's worse, Windows Explorer keeps showing the contents of the last disc it could succesfully read. Example: I enter an audio-cd with autoplay enabled to start the Cyberlink software. It already takes over a minute before the autoplay kicks in (sometimes it only starts when I open WIndows Explorer and click the DVD-drive icon). Tracks are shown and audio starts playing. I eject the disc by using the eject button on the drive and replace it with a Video-DVD. You hear the drive spinning, and then nothing happens. If I double-click the dvd-drive icon, it opens the Cyberlink software again and still shows the tracks of the audio-cd, which it can't play ofcourse. If I use Windows Explorer to navigate through the dvd-drive folders, it still shows the contents of ... Read more

Check first that DMA mode is enabled.
Control Panel System Hardware Device Manager, IDE ATA ATAPI controllers - if DVD drive is IDE. select the one for the DVD, click to open advanced settings tab, check transfer mode is DMA enabled.
This will be set DMA unless someone has atered it.

Greetings,
I recently set up a Perfmon data collector set to monitor two PCs we use for Data Collection of a R&D test system (we were occasionally having test system software inexplicably hang and wanted to see if it corresponded with any system event, resource utilization
etc.). We selected our test system C:/Data folder as the save location for the report and let it run. After stopping the data collector I went to view the report and found it created a folder for itself  along the lines of C:/Data/MachineName_TimeStamp_Etc.
However, it had also deleted every other folder and file within C:/Data which included all our test data CSV files which were actively being written too by the test software. Bummer.
Is this a normal behavior for Perfmon and I jsut didn't read the fine text closely enough when saving the report? It seems like one heck of a bug, but I thought I would see if anyone else had insight into it.
Thanks for your time,

I tried to update the drivers but I get latest drives are loaded. The IDE ATA/ATAPI are DMA enabled for both drives.I downloaded the latest firmware from Liteon and loaded it. So I know the drives are good,the media is good the cable connections are good and the latest drivers are loaded. I did load [email protected] for XP this past weekend. I had the DVD drive for 2 weeks and it worked prior to that. I requested Hot Fix KB322389 from Microsoft but I doubt if this is the answer since the SP was loaded. Help please

Does anyone have experience converting a document that has a table of contents into PDF format using 5.0?

When I try using several different docs, it does not recognize that there is a table of contents and therefore does not create the necessary "bookmarks" for the TOC. Please advise, this is urgent!

That depends on the source doc, I think. What is it?

Greetings. I'm using Microsoft Edge on Windows 10 Build 10240, and large parts of websites requiring Adobe Flash don't work. It doesn't seem to be everything, everywhere, that requires it, but the large majority. It's definitely turned on in settings, haha. I assumed it was just a matter of turning ActiveX Filter off, but I can't seem to find a way to do that. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Answer:Adobe Flash doesn't doesn't seem to work in Microsoft Edge, what seems to be the problem?

It's turned off by default. Go into advanced setting and turn it on.

I bought a 16 gb memeory stick, testing it i copied a few gigs of information over to it and then tried to retrieve. All files are listed but only most of them can be retrieved with some missing. i read an article about misrepresented capacities (a 2gb drive which is badged as 16gb) which they said you could change the setting on the drive (something like change the controller chip) so that it represents its true capcity. i guess then i could then at least use the lesser capacity. Does anyone know where the software is to do this?

When I want to watch Flash videos embedded into Facebook pages videos are not displayed as they should be. Where the video should be seen there is only blank white space. Audio is running normally though. If I click FULL SCREEN video mode Flash video
is displayed normally. Only in small screen modes Flash videos are not displayed properly.
I have tried playing same videos using Google Chrome which is also using Flash ActiveX and everything is working fine there. Firefox which is using Flash Plugin also works fine. Only IE11 is not working as it should.
I have already reinstalled Flash Player and disabled all IE11 addons but problem is still there. I would say this is not Adobe Flash Player problem as in Chrome everything works fine.
Both the latest versions of Adobe Flash Player and updated IE11 are installed on my computer.
Can you, please, tell me what should I do to fix this problem.

I can't believe it's so difficult! My niece has a load of stuff stored on the above, but has been told the service is being suspended at the end of May. She's tried to save the files, but has been told 'not compatible with W8'. She's given me her user name and password, but for the life of me, I can't find any way to save her files to a memory stick from their website.
Any ideas?

Hi everyone . I have a problem with the Visual Effects in Windows 7 and I hope you can help me.

My computer does not show contents of windows, diaglog boxes... when I drag them. Look like this figure:


Then I verify the visual effects settings in Performance Options box (System Properties > Advanced system settings > tab Advanced > click Settings under Performance > tab Visual Effects):

-> Note that I have the option "Show window contents while dragging" checked all the time by selecting "Adjust for best appearance".

To let it show the contents, I have to do these:
1. Uncheck "Show window contents while dragging". Click Apply.
2. Select "Adjust for best appearance" again (or check "Show window contents while dragging" again) then click Apply.

Then the result looks like this:


But... , when I restart my computer, or shutdown and then start it again, the problem is still: it does not show the contents of dialog boxes or windows when I drag them although the option "Show window contents while dragging" is checked.

I was crazy with this. I don't know whether this is caused by software conflicts or something else . Could you help me to solve this problem, please ? I thank you very much for your help .

This morning my phone decided remount the memory card and then move all my memory card contents to a folder called Other.
I can see this by going into the storage sense section on the mobile and it shows a folder called other where it says memory card and says
"These file types that we don't recognise and which didn't fit in with the rest. You can try connecting your phone to your computer and managing them there"
Problem is when you connect your mobile it cannot see the other folder, even though it shows the spaced used. How on earth am I supposed to sort them when i cannot see the folder.
This is another problem with Update 1 that i can see, i currently have another post in the system regarding not being able to keep my chosen ringtone and it resets into over the horizon on every reboot.
Previous dev update was fine, everything worked correctly and no problems, seems GDR1 is slightly buggy, can they roll it back and call it update 2?
