Preferred Solution: My pendrive is not reconize.

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.

Hello. Windows Security Center is telling me that ZoneAlarm firewall is currently turned off. Windows Firewall is off, and ZA is currently running. Is there any way to fix this problem without telling Windows not to monitor it?

This Just Started today, did system restore; no joy there.
WIN XP Pro SP2
ZA Pro v5.5.094.000
AVG AV v7.xxx

More info;
It Seems to be a Windows Issue. I Downloaded the latest update 6.1.737 did a clean install. Ran the setup wizard restarted my PC Windows does not recognize ZA pro. It (Win XP) asks if I would like to turn on Windows FW, I said yes, which causes a message "Windows can not turn on its firewall". But Windows shows their FW is On and ZA pro is functioning correctly
 

Answer:Win XP will not reconize ZAP Firewall

Windows Security Center has a habit of not recognizing certain Firewall and A/V software. Personnaly, I would go by what your Firewall & AV software says, and turn off Security Center in Services.msc. Or just check the little box that says "I have a Firewall solution. I would like to monitor it myself."

I have a memorex 16x ddl internal burner. It will burn cd's and dvd's fine. When I try to read the dvd or any dvd at all it is like I have nothing in the tray. I cannot read homeade or storebought dvd's. It reads cd's fine and plays them it is only dvd's. I've uninstalled and re-installed, updated everything and tried other programs. It will not work using explorer. It sees nothing in the player. I put in a brand new dvd from the store and it says no disc in player. I have VLC-Winamp-Microsoft Media player. It doesn't matter it just won't read a dvd disc. All else is fine. No updates from Memorex either. (Bad Unit itself?)
Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Hey guys, I have a server that I have my Server 2003 eval. copy on and its awesome except with one thing. My printer only has drivers for 98/2000/XP and WILL NOT install on anything but those operating systems. Can I get 2003 to appear as XP when the install program is doing it's diagnostics search? I tried googling this but I didn't get anything remotely close to what I wanted!
 

Answer:2003 to reconize as XP?

I'm not sure about that, those OS-specific things are pretty set in their ways. Try extracting all the drivers to a folder then using the hardware manager to do it manually?

I have an Epson C66 Printer. Just installed "Think Black Cart" but printer will not reconize it.keep getting message to replace cart.Can I somehow force printer to reconize it

Answer:C66 not reconize cart

With the printer switched on try switching the printer off at the mains, waiting a few minutes and switch on again.If that doesn't work then removing the cartridge and quickly replacing can sometimes do the trick but the problem may arise that you get an airlock in the piping work which will have to be cleared by the cleaning process.

Hi all.... I have a Thinkcentre M50 8189-59U machine that won't reconize the onboard USB ports as USB 2.0. They worked fine up until about a week ago after i disconnected all the devices to move the machine. I have tried updating the drivers, rolling the drivers back, uninstalling all usb devices from the harware manager and restarting the computer, made sure they were enabled in the bios and a few other things. No matter what I have tried i can't get the ports to function in highspeed mode. Everytime I connect a device it always says "this device and can function faster click here to see available ports" this never work. Any help or ideas would be greatly appriciated because USB 2.0 is critical for this machine. Thanks!

I have this 46Gb partition that is formatted to FAT32 (so that I can share file between XP and linux).
All is fine except windows XP does not know what to do with it. I tried going to control panel, and went to the disk management section. I cannot do anythnig to that partition expect delete it. What can I do so that windows can access that partition?

Thank you very much.
 

Answer:XP does not reconize FAT32 partition.

I'm not sure but the reason it can't access it is b/c the partition that windows itself is installed on is NTFS. If the partition windows is on is FAT32, then it could've read both.

My computer does not recognize a zip file. Canon sent me a firmware for my camera. I downloaded the zip, right clicked and there was no zip unpack. I double clicked and it has crashed my computer. The file is "eos6d-v113-win" I am running Windows 7 home premium 64bit and IE 10. Thanks for any help. Art

Answer:My computer does not reconize a zip file

I would look on the Canon site for the file and see if it has an MD5Sum for it. Then use an MD5Summer program to compute the MD5 of the file you have. If it doesn't match the MD5 string, it's corrupted.

There are many free MD5 programs on the web for download. Also many file managers have the function built in. I wrote this one:

but there are many to choose from.

Although my email address is the old Tiscali most days I have a struggle getting into TalkTalk. (not recognizing my Password.)
Yesterday was the same, and today until I turned Off Ghostery on both occasions, is it possible that this is the cause or pure coincidence.
Not to mention 85% of all my mail goes to the junk folder these days, the plus side is junk mail is getting less.
OS Vista

Answer:TalkTalk does not reconize my Password.

I have had countless problems with TalkTalk webmail, to the point that 'tickets' have been issued to their engineer's. Nothing seems to happen much, and when it does, it only seems to be short lived.
Glad that you have mentioned Ghostery, because I have that, but never thought that would cause any problem, so perhaps further observations are required there!.
If things are going straight to the junk folder, then that would suggest that you might not have set-up your mail correctly. Check out the TalkTalk forum or make direct verbal contact with TT support for further advice.
Regarding Vista, I have that on a laptop, and in all truth, I just cannot get on with that programme, and especially with the internet connections.

I have a Micro Advantage DVD+- RW drive and it will not read DVD-R media in the drive. It will read DVD's, write CD's and write DVD+R media but will not reconize that there is a DVD-R blank media in the drive. I had Memorex media and went out and bought Maxell to see if it just didn't like the Memorex. I know that Micro Advantage is out of bussiness and so getting software updates from their website is not going to happen. I did update the software to the Aopen DUW 1608/arr software and that did not work. The drive is set up as the master and my DVD rom is the slave with the pins in their respective places. Is this drive done or is there hope? Any help would be great!

A havea  R61i which worked perfectly until sometime yesterday. On boot up, it stopped recognizing the Widescreen and works with only 80% of the screen with a big black bar along the left edge. The screen image its self is not cut off, rather it seems like my machine thinks it only has a 'regular' width screen. I've updated the bios several times, done a complete operating system restore and refeshed all the appropriate drivers to no avail. Oddly, when it boots up it still uses only the left 80% of the screen. It almost seems like it's a hardware issue in that it mis-identified the screen that is installed.

I have tried repeatedly to fix a customers PC with its strange drive setup. He has 1 Hard Drive a DVD-RW and a CD-RW I have set the jumpers everway possible but the CD-RW will just not reconize in Windows XP. I just reformatted it and upgraded the customers PC from ME or XP and I'm not sure what is going on. I have tried every setting possible but the drive will just not reconize. I did the most logical setup possible because my setup is the exact same. 1 Hard Drive, 1 DVD-RW, and 1 CD-RW. I set both ROM Drives to CS and the Hard Drive to Master just like mine, It still wouldn't reconize. I then tried to switch all the drive to CS.... but nothing changed.

Even when I get the proper setup the drive will open and close just fine but it won't reconize it in BIOS or in XP. If I hook up the CD-RW and DVD-RW at hte same time niether of them reconize no matter what setting I put the jumpers on. I'm kind of running out of ideas here and not sure where else to turn. I'm thinking that it may be a bad jumper on the CD-RW that is causing the problem... but if someone can point my in the right direction I would really appreciate it.
 

Answer:Solved: Drive just won't reconize

Have you tried setting the jumper to master and using it as the only drive? If the drive doesn't show no matter what position you put it in, the drive itself may be bad.

Try a different usb port, as wierd as it sounds after awhile certain ports either stop detecting all or individual hardware properly.

I bought an Everex pc 3 weeks ago and it's new. It's a Vista Home basic and seems to do okay except when I try to download something. I put the disk in, and the driver fails to reconize that there's actually a disk in there. Can't get anything downloaded from any disk I've tried. I've tried to fix the problem many ways, by restarting the computer, disabling and then enabling the driver, clicking on autorun in the start menu, nothing works. The settings say that the driver is installed and up to date, but then in another file, it says that it's incomplete or either corrupted. It says the type is HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-H40N ATA Device. Need some help in this area and please, I don't know too much about computers, so don't overload me with information that a computer wiz could understand.

Hi, I have a fairly new epson nx400 and i bought compatible remanufactured cartridges for it. AS soon as i put them in the printer will not reconize them. I went online and read a few things to try byt nothing is working. I can't return these so if anyone knows any way to make them work i'd really appreciate it
 

Answer:epson won't reconize compatible cartridge

Not always, but generally Epson as well as other printer manufacturers don't do well with aftermarket cartridges.

The code on the gold stripes/contacts... on the cartridges...must be read by the printer driver/software/firmware. If it doesn't match, you get the message/problem you're seeing.

In my opinion for the few extra dollars it's worth using genuine ink and paper for the printer. Headaches cost me money...

My computer is about two years old so I went out and got a new internal cd-rw and installed it with all of the new parts, but once again WinXp will not reconize it. It's not showing up as a drive letter or anything, and I've tried looking for it in device manager and detect/install hardware. Any ideas?

Answer:WinXp won't reconize my newly installed cd-rw.

is it detecting the cdrom drivein the bios. Did you have to reinstall windows when you got that new hdd?

Answer:IE doesn't reconize wireless internet

Could be that a proxy is set (check the Connections tab in Internet Options) or a non-Windows browser is blocking IE.

I put this in my PC AMD 3500+, MSI NForce 3 ultra 939 board in a PCI slot and it wont reconize it. Am I doing somethin wrong. I have moved it to a 2nd PCI slot and neither time has the new hard ware found box came up. I have installed the drivers off the CD even the latest from the web but it's like it's not there. When I plug my cat 5 cable into it I see some led lighs come on in the nic card but I've did a add new hardware search and everything and windows just cant see the card at all. What am I doing wrong or did I just get a bad card. One thing I find kinda strange is that it doesn't seem to go to far in to the PCI slot compared to other PCI cards I put in it like it's halfway in or something, but I do get LEDs when I plug in my network cable and it seems to fit the slot OK(ie I can screw it in fine) So what do you guys think , do I have something turned off, Under network conections I'm seeing a microsoft 1394 or something but I thought that that was always there maybe thats the card with basic MS drivers and not intels. When I go into device manager under network devices it does not show anything Intel, there my onboard Realtek and The windows one and A Marvell or the 2nd one on my motherboard that I disabled because I use the realtek. Just plain weird and frustrating i hate mailing stuff back when it's probably something I'm doing.

yay! first post. please help.

I recently freshly reinstalled XP pro w/ SP2 and suddenly it has completely stopped recognizing my external burner.

I have yet to find why. All of my other devices are recognized fine. I previously had the upgrade version of XP, upgraded from 2K and I had no issues. To my knowledge there should not be any need for any special files and whatnot in order to use this burner.

I have not changed anything physically to the computer since reinstalling either. The only thing special is that my computer is normally used with the asian languages options.

Please help me solve this annoying problem it's wasting valuable burning time -_-'
I've read through the other threads here but they mostly talked about internal burners, but it seems that this is a rather common issue.

Answer:My Lenovo G50-80 does not reconize the additional RAM chip

Hi schalkvdl , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums . 
 
 
Based on the Product Specification list for the memory :
 
N2830 / N3530 models: 8GB max / PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3L, non-parity, one 204-pin SO-DIMM socket, system automatically clocks down for 1333MHz DDR3 memory controller
 
Other models: 16GB max / PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3L, non-parity, dual-channel capable, two 204-pin SO-DIMM sockets
 
Which ever Machine Number you have , all models would be asking for a DDR3L 
 
The new ram chip : "4GB 2Rx8 PC3 - 12800S-11-11-F3  .
Unlike  your original "4GB 1Rx8 PC3L - 128009S-11-13-B4 . 
So have it replaced with a PC3L instead and see how that would work for you. 
 
Update us how it goes.

Hi,
Not sure I?m in the right thread but here we go.

OK I have a Biostar T-Force 550 mother board with a western digital 250GB Special Edition Serial ATA drive (model WD2500JD).

I have been trying to load ANY Windows OS on it, and every time I go to install windows on to the HD windows cannot find the Hard drive and I get a please load device Drivers. I have downloaded the utility/driver software from western digital and that didn?t work it also doesn?t see the HD.
I have put in the original CD that my T-Force cam with and still it cannot find the HD or drivers to install the OS on.

I do have the bios already set to raid so that it recognizes my HD.
And while in the bios I can detect the HD

I am at a total loss.
This system did work earlier but I contracted a virus got paranoid and wiped out the system.
Now it won?t let me load windows
Help any ideas
 

Answer:OS wont reconize WD SATA 250G

Go to Western Digital's website and download their installation software and run it on your system. The drive needs to be setup for the first time

I have windows xp home, my cd-r is: Philips CDD4801 CD-R/RW, which shows to be working properly. I had Roxio CD Creator, which I have uninstalled, re-installed and updated. (this still did not work )

Have tried to use Media Player to record and get the message:0xC00D11C9: Cannot copy files to recordable disc
Windows Media Player cannot copy the files to the recordable disc. You may encounter this error message for one of the following reasons:

The CD-R or CD-RW drive is busy. Wait for the drive to complete its current operation, and then try again.
The CD-R or CD-RW drive is not compatible. Verify that the drive is connected properly and that you have installed the latest device drivers, and then try again.
..

HELP! Will I have to get a new cd-r/rw?

I did uninstall the driver for the rw and rebooted, when the hardware was recognized, xp installed driver and that did not work either.

Device manager still shows the drive to be working properly.

After this problem started I had to re install Windows , but the problem still persists .

The new disks I have tried are the same brand we had used before (successfully prior to problem)... I also tried different brand, just in case.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

TIA
Always,
Christine

I have a CD drive & a burner. The cd drive just stopped working all of a sudden. This is a Dell computer that is about 5yrs old. Whenever I put a disc in, (new old, burned, original, etc) the light comes on for about 10 seconds like it will read the disc, but then nothing happens. When I go to My Computer to double clic the D: drive, it just says to insert a disc into the D: drive.

Does anyone know what happened and what can be done?
 

Answer:why doesn't my DVD drive reconize there's a disc?

The drive crapped itself? 5 years is a pretty long time for an optical drive.

Other than that, look for the upper/lowerfilters that may render your drive unusable...
Pasting instructions...

In order to delete upper and lower filters you're going to have to edit the registry. The usual cautions apply. If the registry is not edited properly your whole system can crash.

1) Close all open programs
2) Click on Start, Run, and type REGEDIT and press Enter
3) Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders

* HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
* SYSTEM
* CurrentControlSet
* Control
* Class
* {4D36E965-E325-11CE-

BFC1-08002BE10318}

4) This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

* UpperFilters
* LowerFilters
* UpperFilters.bak
* LowerFilters.bak

5) If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete
6) After deleting the keys, close the Registry Editor
7) Reboot your computer
8) Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone

For the past several month my command prompt hasn't been able to do anything that wasn't basic dos-like commands. It tells me that 'ping' is an unreconizable command, along with ipconfig, and all the windows specific commands are unreconizable. I haven't tried to fix it until now because it doesn't appear to effect anything else, but I would really like my command prompt back, is there a way to restore my command prompt?

What I now want to add is: if its a weekday then it calls a different macro ---"colorweekday"

I tried added the following after "End If" and before the second "gotodate" but I can't get it to work. It worked on the weekend with the added code but not on the weekday . Am I using the wrong funtion? "Weekday(date)"

This is going to be long, i apologize, I cant get any help that works anywhere else. I desperatly need help My last resort before I take my computer to a shop is here. Ill post the background info first.

I installed Microsoft Office 2007 beta about 2 weeks ago. Upon doing so, Microsoft works would not work. I found out online that it was because the two programs shared a code, and office beta broke the works one(something to that effect). The only thing to do was to reinstall works. The only was I could do that was with my XP restore disk or illegally(which I didnt).

Stupidly, I didnt try doing a system restore first, and now system restore wont work at all and Im afraid I cant fix this problem. Anyway, I did a non destructive system restore from the XP CD. It said it would update all the files to they way they were when the computer was purchased and that I shouldnt lose any of the stuff ive done since then.

Afterwards, I had problems getting Norton Antivirus to work, since the 04 version was orginally installed, and AOL wouldnt work either. After all that, everything seemed good. Until I plugged in my 8GB Creative labs MP3 player. It wont charge, wont show up under my computer, and wont install. It basically wont work.

I uninstalled all the software, and it should have poped up a removable drive where I could drag and drop files. It didnt.

Answer:Need help, dont know what to title this, Computer wont reconize MTP devices

Copy all the files you want to keep to another place, then do a complete restore. Non-destructive restores rarely work. This is probably just one of a whole host of problems you're going to encounter. If you're ever going to reinstall Windows, do it from scratch, don't install it on top of itself or try to repair it.

Out of curiosity, why are you using Works if you have Office?

I have just purchased the ZTC Armor NGFF M.2 SSD (http://goo.gl/WciGPy)..  I installed the disk, and booted into my bios, saw it showing up, and figured that it would show up in windows disk management to. However i was wrong, the only place i seem to be able to find the SSD drive is when i look in the bios.. I've looked everywhere for drivers and cannot seem to find any, what do i do to make this thing show up..Some things i've already tried, changed my bios to Legacy Support, and with legacy which makes the drive showing up in the bios, then i tried reinstalling windows, still nothing. Any ideas?













Solved!

What I did that I think might have caused the problem is, I have 2 hard drives in my computer: a 500gb that windows is installed on and then a 1tb hard drive that I just put in recently. After about a week of putting the 1tb hard drive in I formatted it so that I could use it as storage. Im not sure what I formatted it to because I was really just wanting to erase whatever was on it. I wasn't sure if i was going to use it as my main windows hdd or just use it as storage.

Now after a long delade boot, the 1tb hdd dosnt show up in My Computer or in device manager under drives.

Here is the run down of what happens at the boot:

at the bios DELL screen, it lags for about 3-4 minus (cant even hit F2 at this point for settings).
Then I get a message that says "Drive 2 not found: Serial ATA sata-2
Alert! Failed to detect one or more drives during POST."

I can push F1 to contune and when I do, windows boots up and everything seems fine but the second drive dosent show up in My computer or in device manager under drives.

If i unplug that hdd then boot, I get no such alert and it boot as normal

I was using Media Player version 9.0 and I installed a new Sony Burner onto my D: Drive. Media player will no longer burn. It will not activate the new burner. I installed the software which came with the burner called "Nerosmart". Using Nerosmart is very difficult to find songs off of my hard drive using it. Media player is much more organized and I would rather use media player to burn with. How can I reconfigure it to reconize my new burner? I am a novice computer user using Windows xp and an e machine computer. Thank you for your help.

On May 14, 2017 I logged in to my Windows Vista on HP laptop using my long time password and user name. Due to the recent news about ransomware I had Norton 360 run an update; no problems were detected.Then I locked the machine and came back one hour later. The software wouldn?t accept my password when I tried to log in under my standard user name; I tried about 7 times with no luck.Recently there was one day when I had to try logging in three times before my password was recognized; that was also using my longtime user name and password. I did get in on the third attempt. What do you advise? I do not have a USB with a password reset on it.

HI, dell has informed me that my problem with my PC Is that windows 7 can't reconize the local network interface driver and told me that it's a software issue. I reinstalled the local network interface driver from the original cd that came with the PC and 2x's restored the computer to another time and then restored it back to the factory settings-with a Dell tech on the phone- nothing helped. This problem started one morning when lighting was felt/heard very close to our home and in fact burned out our verizon moden/box that Verizon replaced. From this point I wasn't able to go on line because there was no local network avail for verizon to connect to is how I understand it.
Can anyone help?????
Thank you in advance for any and all ideas or advice!
Bob

Answer:windows 7 can't reconize with local network interface driver software

Dell Support, along with most OEM support, is crap. The best place for support with Windows computers is this forum. Anyways, you mean LAN Ethernet driver right? Could you please go into Device Manager and tell me the model name and manufacturer of your Ethernet device.

I have a SONY VAIO VCGRC210G that I used System Mechanic Drive Scrubber to delete all old data. It also deleted the operating system (Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2). When I try to install Windows XP the BIOS shows both RAIDO drives, but you cannot access them. It also won't let me switch to boot using a CD drive. Even using a removable floppy drive, it won't boot because the BIOS doesn't recognize the USB port the floppy is plugged into. I found a forum somewhere that said I should unplug the BIOS and reinstall. I have no idea how to do that and cannot find a diagram of the motherboard to show where it is located. Anyone have any ideas how to get this thin to boot? I bought a new computer and wanted to give this one to a school, but it needs to be operable.

dear

i want to play movies on my LG lcd TV through Pen Drive.

plz guide me or give me software for that

thanking u

Answer:use pendrive on lcd

Hi,

Have you checked your tv manufacturer's website to see if your tv can play movies from just a usb flash drive as most lcd tv's don't do that if this is what you mean. The usb slot on a TV is there mainly for updates for itself, although having said that there is a few that will let you play a slideshow of pictures from it.

Have a look online at LG's website typing in your tv's make model/serial number, it will definitely tell you.

Answer:PENDRIVE

Hi achussaini,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
If you are looking for a working pen for your Yoga 3 Pro, then this discussion here.
It uses multipoint capacitive touch technology and not with the pressure sensitivity offered with active type pens.
 
Other pen choices that works fine with others are also discussed here.
 
Hope this helps answer your query.

I have a P4 computer but its RAM is just 256 MB. If anyone knows any method to use a pendrive as a RAM, please tell it to me. Thanks in advance.

Answer:Using Pendrive as a RAM on XP

This is not recommended, not practical, and I don't think it's possible. USB Storage Devices store memory as Flash memory, which is different than the type of memory used in your RAM. They are accessed differently and have different characteristics.The main difference is that the Flash Drive retains its memory when the power is turned off, whereas the RAM is completely erased when you turn off the power.Also, if you manage to get the USB Drive working as RAM, it would be like driving a car without circular wheels. It is just too slow to be used as RAM.Can you not purchase any more RAM? It doesn't come too expensive.

Question: pendrive's

HI,I was reading an article the other day about a chap who had spybot and other spyware software on his usb pendrive,and not on his pc i was wondering if it wasn't installed on any pc how was he running the spybot etc, on any machine to check for errors spyware without it being installed on the pc it was just on his pendrive.Puzzles me or is it me? help.Thanks daiol.

Answer:pendrive's

I think he probably had the installer executables on the pen drive. Then he could go to any PC with a USB port and install the program without having to download (especially if the internet connection wasn't working).I've done a similar thing with a collection of anti-malware and diagnostic programs burned to a CD.
