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.

Hi there,

i would like to use GPS Navigation with my Nokia 6600 via Bluetooth GPS (Model Royaltek GPS x-Mini).
Prior usage i've to install the software on the MMC-Card of the mobile Phone via Nokia PC Suite (for Nokia 6600).

For BT i'm using the Toshiba SD Card 2 within Portege.

With the Toshiba Bluetooth Manager (3.20.01) i can discover and establish a serial connection via BT without problems.

When starting the Nokia PC Suite (that automatically "see's" the new BT Port ...) the connection failes.

Any idea ? Thanks ...

Answer:Portege R100 + BT SD Card 2 + Nokia 6600 with Nokia PC Suite ? NO CONNECT !

Hello

Unfortunately I can not give you a proper answer. The fact is that the Bluetooth works properly and notebook can communicate with the unit. Why the connection fails after starting Nokia PC suite is not easy to say.

In my opinion you should try to contact Nokia support. They have more experience with own software products and it is probably tested by Nokia. If you have a solution please let us know.

Good luck!

ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGH!!! See my post in the consumerwatch forum for the background to my nightmare with the Nokia 6600.I have Nokia PC Suite installed on my computer. However it will not recognize my bluetooth enabled Belkin USB adapter i have got to connect to my Nokia 6600 via bluetooth. Does anyone have any software drivers to fix this problem? I am so fed up with this! WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH!!! :(

Answer:Nokia 6600 and Belkin Bluetooth Dongle

I use a Belkin USB bluetooth adapter on my computer to communicate with my Sony T610, and it was fairly easy (this is not to rub the salt in).I don't know whether my Belkin bluetooth software is the same as yours. But having installed the Belkin software/drivers, I don't need any further software to connect with the phone. (Even the Nokia site doesn't suggest that you need the Nokia PC suite.)I don't know what steps you've taken (and you may have used the bluetooth adapter successfully with a previous phone), so don't get mad if you've done everything and it's still not working.But first make sure that the bluetooth adapter is properly installed. Check in Device Manager there are no yellow marks.You need to configure the bluetooth services that you want to run on your computer. You may have been asked to do this when you first installed the software or the driver, but check again. If you have My Bluetooth Places on your computer, double click that and use the Bluetooth setup wizard to find out. Select I want to configure services. Then try File Transfer first, and follow the prompts.Then activate Bluetooth on your Nokia. The first time you're supposed to give the phone a name and set visibility to ALL (you must have done that by now).On the computer, My Bluetooth Places, double click Find Bluetooth Devices. If it finds your phone, you should be prompted to "pair" the computer with the phone, by giving your computer a name, entering a pin code (any combination of numbers will ... Read more

I recently went to Alaska and shot most of the trip on my point and shoot camera. I used my Lumia 950 for a few select photos. The point and shoot photos are not good, the Lumia 950 photos are sharp, bright, and beautiful. I'm now thinking of using my Lumia 950 for all vacation photos. I don't want 300 photos in my phone so I was thinking of switching the setting to store them on the SD card. When I get home, like my camera SD card, I would put it in my computer and download to a file in my pictures library. Then wipe it clean for my next vacation. My questions are:
1. If I want to take a few select photos to keep on the phone can I switch between internal storage and SD card storage and go back and forth?
2. If so, how can I tell which photos are on the SD card and which are stored on the device?
This is probably a Smartphone 101 question, but I've never used an SD card on my phone before-I only keep a few photos on my phone. Basically I want to treat the SD card like it's my separate point and shoot camera. Is this possible?
Thanks for any help!

Like the title says. Is it possible to have all USB storage devices diabled (ie: if you plug in a flash drive or a USB disk, it just won't work while it would work if a USB mouse is plugged), however, if storage device A is plugged in, it will get detected/identified and work just fine?

OS is windows 7 and XP
I hope I made myself clear.

Hi everyone, Any suggestions for me. I have the 735 model that as you are all aware, has a max of 8 Gig of storage space. I've moved pretty much all of the applications to the SD card. The space used on the main phone is;
System files: 3.36 GB
Other: 230.68 MB
Email / messaging 73.44 MB
Music: 94.13 MB
Total space used 4.17 GB
I'm concerned that the phone will start to lock up or have some re-boot issues if I start to consume 5 - 6 GB or more.
Any ideas of reducing the total space (i can remove the music no problem) No pictures are stored on the phone only on One-Drive.

Hi,
Last week, i have purchased Nokia Lumia 730.
In Nokia 730 having 8 GB internal storage. I have insert the 16 GB memory card.

when there is no any videos then why its occupy the 3.22 GB in phone memory
when i click to setting in Video page, it show login with micosoft id.
Can u tell me about this..
Thanks.

Answer:Why is my Nokia Lumia 730 showing that I have so much storage space available?

Manage your videos by connecting to your PC. But, yeah, this is a rather annoying bug.
Perhaps, there are files - stray files - in the videos folder?
By the way, you may be able to fix this with a reboot, or a soft reset.

Hello,
I am just trying to figure out why my Nokia Lumia 1020 is giving me trouble with storage.
Here is what happened;
I take pictures of everything...to the point where I had to dump my phone a couple times with 20 or so gbs worth of memory.
Last week I hit my storage cap and linked it up to my computer to import all the photos. After all was said and done, I highlighted all the photos and albums like I usually do and pressed delete.
Although this time around, my phone continued to say the storage space was full!
This problem has been persisting ever since.
-I have checked everywhere for any photos, none to be found. (Except photos that appear on live tiles that are synced up to facebook)
-I have already done a soft reset of my phone.
Here is what I am looking at.
-Apps- 4 gb
-Maps- 76 mb
-Temporary Files-336 mb
*-Photos- 19gb
-Music- 796 mb
-Videos-90 mb
-Office documents- 3.3 mb
-Email+contacts- 439 mb
-Ringtones- 0kb
-System- 2 gb
-Other- 2.3 gb
Overall is this something other users had a problem with?
Is this just a bug, or am I missing something completely?
Thanks!

Hi All,
I had purchased a new Nokia Lumia 1320 2 weeks back. I have issues wrt phone storage. Initially the System Files were 2.99 GB but within 2 weeks this has increased to 3.99 GB. The size of system folder is increasing. I have tried Storage Cleaner, Storage Cleaner Pro etc but for no use. These apps cleans only SD card not phone storage.
I had a word with nokia customer care regarding the same and they adviced to format the phone. Correct me if I am wrong, If we format the phone many times it has effect on hard disk. They adviced me to format the harddisk as and when the phone storage gets filled up. This is not a solution.
Also There is an issue with Nokia Account sign in. I am unable to sign in. Raised a complain with nokia but they said to wait.
Also in facebook unable to see the profile pics or uploaded pics. Only text is visible.
Need help! Can anyone provide me some advice on how to tackle this issue for your previous experience and expertise.

Hi, I'm having a slight problem with my computer.

It originated when I was using an image mounting tool, after removing one of the simulated drives while my usb thumb drive was connected. A new drive called removable disk appeared with the same drive letter as the simulated drive I removed. If I go into the device manager I see it as "Generic Storage Device USB Device". Removing it also removes the new drive from my computer, however each time I reconnect my usb thumb drive I get that one popping up. I also get my thumb drive, but besides that I get a "ghost" image of one that I can't open, and it remains even after safely removing my usbstick, and remains until I remove it in the device manager. I'm guessing this is related to windows 'remembering' the ids of the devices you connect, however I can't remember where that is stored in the windows registry. Any ideas about what I can do?

Thankful for any answers

Jack

The 920 and 925 are almost identical (besides the obvious and some minor things), and the 1020 isn't too different. I wouldn't be concerned with the age gap between the 925 and 920 since they're pretty darn close.

Hello, I just bought the BH-222, charged it overnight and paired it with my 1520. But battery level is maximum 76%. Been listening music with it for about 5 hours until the headset said "Battery level low" but in device hub battery left is still displayed between 28 and 14% when the headset turns itself off. Is that normal or a bug in device hub maybe?

Answer:Nokia BH-222 headset in device hub

Hi there, I also bought BH 222 few days ago and have been using it with my L 920 ( WP 8.1 DP ). On device hub, it shows maximum between 76% and 80% even after I fully charge my headset and also shows the levels 20% to 28% when the headset turns off with empty battery. I think it is a bug in a device hub which somehow makes it erroneously communicate with headset.
Actually, I am concerned with the headset battery time. Are you sure you are getting 5 hours of music playback? I think I am getting less than that though I have yet to test it with continuous music playback.

When I try to open it I get this message; "Disk is not formatted. Do you want to format it?" The device works very well on my other pc and my laptop. Any ideas?

Answer:USB storage device

I assume you are referring to a plain USB Jump Drive.Your USB Jump Drive in fact may just not be Formatted, and you got away with that on your PC and Laptop, while your XP Pro will not let you do that.That problem exists also with Floppies, older systems will allow this while XP won't.If there is nothing important on that drive, than just Format it, as it wants you to do. Then plug it into your PC and Laptop, and see what happens. If none of your computers are complaining about your Reformatted Jump Drive, than put some file on it and try to load it from one to another.

I'm no expert, but it's looking like it corrupted my sound card somehow. I am inprocess of trying to get it fixed, and have narrowed it down to my sound card and have it disabled so that my computer behaves.
When I have it enabled, none of my system games (like Spider Solitare) respond. They open and then freeze. Windows Media Player does the same thing. And, no sound.
Anyway, see my thread and see if any of the things I've gotten help with help you.

Question: Storage Device

Hi guys i hope this is the right part of forum.

Anyway i have a spare machine that is now gathering dust and i am wanting to turn it into a storage device. Now it is not a problem to do with a platform installed like windows or linux, but i am wanting to make this storage device without any platform at all (total blank Hard drives). can this be done?

Now i know it is possible with teraboxes and things designed specifcally for that but how would i go about doing it to a standard machine?

i am also wanting this to be linked upto my home network.

hope some one can help.

Thanks
Mick
 

Answer:Storage Device

Question: USB Storage device

I have a USB storage device that you place a hard drive in it then the usb plugs into the computer. The Hard drive & USB storage device is for desktop computer hard drives. I want to put the USB device in a laptop. Will a desktop computer size hard drive work in the laptop if I put it in the usb device?

btw: This laptop has no internal hard drive. The laptop is a Gateway Solo 9100. 150Mhz processor. 64MB of RAM.

Can I boot the computer from the USB hard drive if I put an OS on it?
 

Answer:USB Storage device

A computer that old is not going to support booting from an external hard drive.

Hi mate!

Of course it is possible, you have to plug your old drive to your machine and make sure that Master/Slave jumpers are set correctly to avoid conflicts. Your OS will identify the drive and then you will be able to access files stored in it. If you want to reformat it you can easily do that from inside the OS with no problems. There is no need to have an OS installed on that drive.

Hi guys just exhausted all my ideas on this so am coming to you for help.. I have an external hard drive which connects via usb, it connects and turns on and the computer even shows that it recognizes it (on all computer at my house) but there is no way to access what is in it, it doesn't appear in My Computer and it doesn't come up to autoplay this has only just recently happened before it would work fine and nothing has been changed so I don't know why it wont work anymore.

Thanks for all your help.
 

Answer:USB Storage Device..

Is this a new and unused drive? If so, Windows must initialize it then create a partition. Do this with the Disk Management console. Run diskmgmt.msc

If it has been used and contains files, with which file system has it been formated?

Hi all,

first off, I would like to thank the different people that (through their previously posted threads) helped me bring my pc back to life. This is the reason that I signed up to this site. Seems very helpful!!!

Ok, I have searched but haven't found a similar problem on this site. It might be a stupid one, but I don't know what to do.

I purchased a usb flash disk 128mb (memory key) yesterday and i think i killed it. I had some software on it an when i went to delete it, it wouldn't allow me to do so... So what did I do? I formatted it. Ever since the format, the pc won't open it or anything... Any suggestions? Is there any way to fix it, of have I ruined it and have to buy a new one?

Thanks,
Voudou

Hello

My laptop seems to have stopped being able to read any memory sticks, ext hard drives or memory cards (in memory card slot). It will appear in my computer but if I try and open it, it says it is not formatted, do I want to format it now. If I say yes, it will say formatting failed. I also can't format it in disk management and obviously I don't want to reformat my external hard drive anyway really! Also if I go to properties, it sayd free sapce 0gb and used space gb.

I have tried 3 different memory sticks, my external hard drive and one memory card, all of which are working fine on 2 other computers. I can use the USB ports for other purposes.

See if there is an option in add/remove programs to uninstall. If so remove it and reboot.Then reinstall the software.Reboot and then plug in the camera.An alternative would be to get a USB card reader - they will require less power and are less fussy about software.

I am a member of a family business, and we have begun to take our business a bit more seriously. We are looking into a way to hold all of our information into one central area. I have never had a need for anything like this, so I have no idea what to look for. Do I want a server or do I just want something that sits under a desk at my home? Do I want the server at my house or is there a place that will store servers for us? Any tips and information would be great.

Answer:Looking for a mass storage device

The answer really depends on how 'serious' you are and your budget. It also depends on your storage needs (do you need 1tb or 10tb of data?).

If you want to go cheap you can create a file server running server 2012. You can do this by building / buying a beefy desktop and have a RAID controller in it with a RAID 5 or 10 configuration. This would be the cheapest enterprise solution. You would essentially install server 2012 on a RAID 1 configuration on local storage, then I would install your drives that will storage your data off the RAID controller. This solution, including the license for windows will probably run around 1500 to 3000. The Standard version of 2012 will run around 650 alone. Then another grand or more for the hardware.

The more expensive but serious setup would be using a SAN like a Dell Equallogic to accomplish this. the Equallogic is a device with dozens of drives in it configured in a RAID configuration. It's nice because it makes management easy, if you lose a drive you get an alert and the device will automatically rebuild the array. Opposed to the first solution i said, you would have to rebuild that array yourself. EqualLogic PS6500 Series | Dell

A SAN solution is going to cost you

I have been looking online, and i have read a lot about people building their own computer. They do this by getting the different pieces: ram, hard disk, motherboard, CPU etc. But i was thinking about building my own hard disk so i could store my data with my own self built data storage device.

I have been looking online for information, but i have found nothing on this subject. I looked at building a flash drive, but i could not find any information anywhere on the designs of a flash chip which stores the data. So i could not create that. I though that it may be possible to burn data onto my custom CD's. For example is it possible to cut a disc of any metal, eg. copper. and burn data to it. Afterall, we only make dints in a normal disk to represent 1s and 0s. Also similar to the way i thought about a hard disk.

If anyone has any information or can point me in the right direction for this, i would appreciate it.

Thanks.

Before and after i deleted it my Iomega External USB CDRW Drive has suddenly not been detected by my computer(was not detected even when i had the usb mass storage device so this is not why it's not being detected). While i was removing other programs that i thought might have been causing this i accidently deleted USB Mass Storage Device from Add/Remove programs and i believe that is a driver i need for my usb plugs to work.

Answer:USB Mass Storage Device

Sounds like you have some issue involving "uppers filters" and USB ports and devices. Do any USB devices work well?

You could Google that and try to find an answer or how to edit the registry to repair it. I'd tell you but I forget where to look in the registry to do this.

In any case, if you attempt, set a restore point before.

Try a Windows Update while device(s) is/are attached. See if they need a drive letter assigned in disk management.

If not, pick your favorite one and right click on it in the device manager. Properties. Details tab. Change dropdown to hardware ids. Copy and paste results here. No screenshots as alternative, please.

My problems is I bought a new Maxtor 4 1TG drive to upgarde my stroage capacity. When I added the Big Maxtor to the system Window would not Load. I got a messge that says because there had been a Hardware change. I assume it meant the addition of the external Big Maxtor. My system does appear to see the Maxtor, but I do not know if it recognizes it and is able to work with it. Am I doing something wrong here?????

Is there a solution to this problem. I contacted Dell and as usual they are useless.

Answer:Maxtor 4 1TG Storage Device.

Conflicting words: "Window would not load" and "system appear to see the Maxtor."

Is Windows booting or how is it not loading and where does the system appear to see the Maxtor?

Also how is the Big Maxtor being connected (eSATA, USB or Firewire)?

And as a guess not knowing these answers, check the BIOS and see that the first boot device is not USB or anything other than the boot disk, or DVD drive and then boot disk.

I have a USB Storage Device (SanDisk Cruzer Switch) that isn't being detected on any computer that I plug it into; tried on Mac and Windows computers.

I recently formatted it as a bootable USB with HP USB Disk Format Utility with the MS-DOS option ticked. I was planning to use the USB to update my BIOS on another computer. However, when I unplugged the USB from my computer and plugged it into the computer that I was working on it wouldn't show up in the BIOS Boot Menu. Tried it on other computers to see if it would appear but no visible or audible notifications appeared.

The USB doesn't show up in Device Manager or Disk Management either.

Answer:USB Storage Device not being detected

If your pen drive does not show up in any of the working computers, I would presume it is dead and discard it or get a warranty replacement.

To get going with the task of updating BIOS from a bootable DOS drive, use RUFUS, a very nifty tool,, to create your DOS bootable pen drive. Rufus - Create bootable USB drives the easy way



Verify the correct pen drive is shown, give it a new volume label as you want, check all the boxes under the Format Options, "Create a bootable disk using" select MSDOS from the dropdown menu and click on start. Done.

[I do use HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool v2.2.3 - the last version that could format >2TB USB drives, but had never used it to create a bootable DOS drive. Just to check on it, I created a bootable DOS disk with it, feeding Windows 98 System files (DOS) and was able to boot into DOS, no difficulties.



A Full Format is advisable by removing the check mark on Quick Format.

Now I want to ask the following questions;

1. After writing DOS, did you check the DOS files had indeed been written to the pen drive? ( You have to unhide hidden files and protected system files in Folder Options>View)

2. After writing the BIOS files into that pen drive, did you check again?

3. Did you safely remove the pen drive or just pulled it?

4. Did you remove, replug it, restart, get into the one time boot menu and check you could get into DOS prompt on the same computer you created it? ]

On my tool bar at the bottom of the screen there is a safely remove hardware icon. When I select it takes me to screen that gives me 2 selections to safely remove hardware. One is my printer and the other is USB mass storage device. When I highlight either it shows me the device name again and says at location 0.
" HP Photosmart 3100 series at location 0"
" USB mass storage device at location 0"

Why is the icon there to give me the option of removal? Should I remove? What is the term "mass storage device referring too?

Thank you
 

Answer:Usb mass storage device

Your printer probably has a sdcard slot on it. You can remove the memory card from your camera and put the card directly into the printer and print pictures directly from it. No need to bother to remove it or shut it down.

Hello everyone,

I recently bought a 2―" HDD and an enclosure (USB) so I could construct an external hard drive for video editing files.

Everything is put together, I have connected it to the computer (XP) and the drive lights up, I see activity and Windows installs it and shows it as a USB Mass Storage Device in device manager. Everything seems fine with the drive, it even shows it as a Toshiba drive which it is... but I can't figure a way to access the drive lol

The computer knows it is there and in working order, but it is not showing up in My Computer like I imagined.

I guess I need to format it, but how the hell do you format a USB drive? Is there a command like "format c:" for a USB device? Also, the drive has 4 pins for a jumper... I.e. I can stick the jumper in 2 positions (4 if you include horizantal) but the drive did not come with one... Thanks for the newb help!

I havent changed or added any software. It has worked for the last 5 months till this last week. Anyone have any ideas?
 

Answer:Usb mass storage device

What does the yellow sign say?

You could try uninstalling all USB related drivers and let Windows reinstall them from scratch.

My HDD drive on my xbox360 has only 1.1 GB of space left. I use a usb drive to save my games and such. However, if there is one thing to download that is under 1.1 GB it will save to my HDD drive, and not the usb like I want it to. There is also no option to change the storage device that it's saving to. I just don't want my HDD drive completely full. Hope you have some suggestions thank you.
 

Answer:storage device xbox360

Unless I'm mistaken, you can move data to an external and you can use it for your save data, but all normal operations (such as downloads) always use the primary drive.

Please can somebody help????

I bought an MP3 player that came with a disk to install drivers for Win 98,
which was my current operating system, I installed the drivers & connected the MP3 Player via USB, and my computer stopped responding, when I task manager it says "MSGSRV32 not responding", I tried to reinstall & still wouldn't work, but it worked on another PC. I was advised to upgrade to Windows XP as it is meant to be a lot more compatible with USB devices. I have now upgraded to windows XP & It still wont work. I even took the MP3 Player back & bought a better one, & It still wont work, which leads to believe it might be something to do with my hardware, the USB is all enabled in BIOS & there is enough power going to it, it is quite an old computer but it meets all the system requirements required. I just don't know what to do? The motherboard has built in sound & graphics, even tried disabling onboard sound to see if that worked, but NO. Has anyone come accross this problem?

There are lots of suggestions on the web, that say it may be something to do with power management or conflicting programmes, but It's none of these,
I think I need to maybe upgrade the Drivers for my BIOS / Motherboard, but as the PC was given to me I don't have the manual & this may seem like a dumb question but how can I find out the exact spec & name of my mother board? As when I open it up it just has all the makes of t... Read more

So I did a clean install of Win 7, reformatting the disk, thinking that I could pull everything back from my WD MyBook 500GB external drive. I plugged it in (tried all USB ports) and nothing is detected.

I've gone to WD site to find a driver, but can't find it. I re-installed the Memeo Backup software that came with it, which can't detect it either. Add a Device just spins and spins. Anyone know how I can get my stuff of the external drive?

Answer:Wd storage device not detected

Try checking the usb connection on the back of the drive itself.

Try going the device manager to see if the drive is showing up there. if it is, then the drive file system is at fault. it might be corrupted. the testdisk utility, or try connecting the drive to another computer to see what happens

I have a problem with my USB ports not recognising various hard drives, an iphone and a card reader which all worked perfectly up until yesterday. When I connect any of these items I get a pop-up saying "One of the USB devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned, and Windows does not recognise it." This happens with any USB port and any cable and with all my USB devices with storage. My keyboard, mouse and printer work without problem in any of the ports.Sometimes, with a few reboots I can get a device working for a while, but then it disappears and I get the above message.In device manager, the offending port shows up with a yellow exclamation mark and the properties state "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43) I've tried uninstalling and letting Windows reinstall for only temporary cure. I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit and have made no hardware or software changes recently apart from installing the latest version of itunes. I have run a virus and malware scan which found nothing.I did a system restore back to the weekend, as I had installed some windows updates but the problem persists.I am at my wit's end as I can't work out whether this is a hardware or Windows problem. Any help would be much appreciated.

Answer:USB storage device problems

Ghost device conflicts are the mostly cause especially for devices that are connected and disconnected regularly i.e. pen drives, external drives, mp3 devices and phones. Remove all USB devices click hereDownload and run Uninstall ALL devices that are shown as not connected.Reboot the machine.Plug in your USB device and windows should then find new hardware and reinstall the drivers for the device.

When I insert the Micro Sd card into the USB adapter and insert the adapter, the Explorer sees it as a Removable Disc (F)
then asks me to insert a disc, or format a disk.  The device driver through control panel shows USB Mass Storage Device, and the driver is working properly.

It worked properly earlier in the day, but now it doesn't.

Well, I've been downloading a lot of stuff, for my iPod, and since they are in itunes (and in my computer), they've been taking a lot of space recently. I even found out that there is only 25 percent of free space on my computer.

So I was wondering, instead of forcing my computer to hold all the music/videos for my ipod, can't i just... somehow... make my iP0d just hold everything, then delete the files in my computer to save up space? I mean, like... download a music file, put it in my ipod, then delete the file knowing that a duplicate is in my ipod. I think you understand what I'm trying to say.

I have a Genesys usb mass storage unit. I have the Vista driver and it's been installed properly. The problem is that it doesn't show up as a drive under my "computer."

I have tried to update the driver, uninstall and re-install and it still won't show up. It does show up in the "safely remove hardware" window and the device manager.

Try these.... they are harmless steps...
1:stop plug and play service in services.msc and restart it... then,
2:start->right click on "computer"-> left click on manage-> on L.H.S. click on storage, click on disk management...on the R.HS. check in disk management if that USB drive shows up as unallocated space. If yes, reply to this post.

Hi everybody,

Iīm new here. Well I got an USB 128MB storage stick. I just work well. My WinME recogniced it and i could see the deviceīs contents. Also this device uses a software called Watchdog2.exe and uses a PASSWORD.DAT file. When I double click on the usb storage stick it shows like only 276kb of the actual 128MB(both watchdog2.exe en PASSWORD.DAT take 208kb). So I have to execute watchdog2.exe enter a password(i know it) and after that appear a display screen to choose if i want to write-protect the drive or not, after selecting option and presing ok, I exit the program and the drive displey is refreshed and now shows the 128MB it really has. The two files(watchdog2 and PASSWORD) canīt bee read anymore and if i press F5 to refresh they disappear. Now i can add files and so. When i disable and detach the device from my pc and then reconect it to the pc it show again the two files in 276kb disk space. So you know ask:

Ok, but whatīs the problem?

Well, the thing is that yesterday i wanted to access the drive, so i attached it to my PCīs USB port and it appead in MiComputer as external drive. Ok, until now everything is good it was recognized. But when i doubleclic it, MiComputer tells me that the drive is not formated and if I want to format it. Iīm not sure if I should to. Thatīs because i think that if i format it, many things could happen:

* The two files donīt appear anymore, so no more security
* Donīt now if above happens, if its only matter of coping t... Read more

Answer:Problems with my USB Storage Device

Personally, I'd get rid of the stupid password program! I think physical security is sufficient for devices like this, why complicate your life with yet another thing to go wrong?

I am having trouble with my IPOD I was wondering if this error was the reason it wasn't working?
This is what error message comes up for the mass storage device:

Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware because there is a duplicate device already running in the system. (Code 42)

Click Troubleshoot to start the troubleshooter for this device.
 

Answer:Mass Storage Device

I always reply to the head scratchers. Please un-plug/turn off all your USB devices EXCEPT the Ipod, your keyboard, and mouse. This includes your printer, and any Jump Drives you may have plugged in.

1.) Open your Device Manager
-Right click on my computer
-Select 'properties'
-Click the 'hardware' tab
-Press Device Manager

2.) Do you see your Ipod on the list? If so, uninstall your IPOD. I don't have an IPOD so i don't know what group it would be stored in, but I would assume your Universal Serial Bus Controllers.

3.) Download a new Ipod driver or load the Ipod driver off your cd like you did the first time you installed it.

I hope this fixes it.

Can a NAS act as a backup device for on the fly saves? Like a Mirra server.
I need a network storage device that will keep the files that are saved on the file server and also copy them to the NAS. This is just in case the server goes down the network users can redirect there access from the file server to the NAS.

What ideas do you have?
 

Answer:Network storage device

Use NAS entirely and create BCV or snapshot volumes.

Or:

Use NAS/iSCSI head and product like Topio or Replistor to async write data to NAS.
