How to SAVE an application to CD/DVD/memory stick, via a Download Manager ?

Question: How to SAVE an application to CD/DVD/memory stick, via a Download Manager ?

Hi,
Did a search on the forum for a similar topic, but didn't find anything relevant.

I've d/loaded the following :
http://www.freedownloadmanager.org/ (FDM) and did a test on a small applic. Managed to Run the app. onto the PC (Applic. was Upload Manager, approx. 400kb) from FDM. Simple enough.

Before doing that, however, tried to Save it to a CD, by attempt @ right-clicking on file name. But, there's no option to try save it to CD, by electing to ''Send to...'', like one finds in IE . Also, couldn't drag & drop file from FDM to DVD RW Drive (D:)

Had a look through the headings in FDM, and closest I got to was Export option, but it seems to only want to save the file in a .txt format,
which to me implies it won't allow it (i.e. the contents of the file) to Run from the CD thereafter ??

My aim is to be able to save certain Windows Updates (espec. Service Packs which constitute about 400MB's, each) to FDM, and then simply save them to a CD / DVD+RW / memory stick.

[I know I can d/load these MS files via Windows Update directly onto the PC, and have done so many times b4, but want to now try this other option.]

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Preferred Solution: How to SAVE an application to CD/DVD/memory stick, via a Download Manager ?

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.)

Completely new to this so apologies if barking up the wrong tree .... !

Rather than buying a 32 gb memory stick to upload some important jpg pictures into for safety's sake, I'm wondering if it's possible to upload and store them in a spare and unused 32gb memory card that I've got lying around instead ? Equally if it's then possible to download them safely later on ?

Thanks

Answer:Possible to save to a memory card rather than a memory stick ?

Short answer is Yes. An SD card is very similar to a flash drive as far as the technology goes and can be used like an SD card for storing files. I would format it Fat32. And you can download (Copy) the files from the card at any time.

Hi:
XP with IE8

For the past months, I can NOT save any, i.e. words, photoes, music and all others when I inserted Memory-sticks or CD into the one of USB slots. On CD, it says, ... insert a blank CD although there is CD in there for waiting for saving. On Memory-stick, there is NONE showing even though I inserted a brand new one into one of USB slots. Except this issue, the PC running as good as a brand new.

My question is;
What's causing this, ... not able to save any programs I need to save on CD or memory-stick?

There is no sign of e drive under 'my computer'. I am trying to transfer data from my pc to my laptop and have downloaded files on to a memory stick. Having inserted the stick into drive e, I do not seem to be able to download and there is no sign of Drive e on 'My Computer' display.

Answer:I want to download data from memory stick in e: but cannot

The drive letter may not neccessarily be 'E' on every computer that you use the memory stick on. For example if you plug another drive into your laptop for example and that takes the letter 'E' when you stick your drive in question into the same laptop while the other memory stick is already in, then it cannot take the same letter. Open my computer then inset the memory stick into your pc, then watch out for a new drive letter appearing. This should be your memory stick. If that doesnt work then try another port on your pc (back and front).

Answer:how to download photos from a memory stick to my computer

It should be as simple as plugging the stick into a USB port on your computer.  After a short delay, the stick should appear in Windows Explorer as an additional drive on your computer.  You can then copy the folder(s) with the photos from the stick to wherever you wish on your  computer.

Whenever I try to put my SD card in the reader or a memory stick in the USB ports, I get the error message "E:\ Application Not Found". What does this mean? It's really weird, they were fine last week, and now all of a sudden none of them work? I'm not very technologically savvy, so please forgive me. I just checked the drivers and they are all updated, so what could it be? I can open the either one if I go to My Computer and right click, but I get that error message whenever I simply put them in. Any help would be appreciated!

Answer:"E:\ Application Not Found" SD card and memory stick

Hi,

We can try two methods to check if the issue gets fixed:

Method 1 (If autorun.inf file is present):

1. Go to control panel then folder options.
2. Press tab view and check view hidden files and folders.
3. Then go to the device not opening and explore it.
4. Look if you see autorun.inf and if present delete it.
5. Then disconnect USB device from system and reconnect it.

Method 2 (If autorun.inf file isn't present):

Go to command prompt, click Start and type the following command:
attrib -s -r -h X:\autorun.inf

Press enter and then type the following command:
del X:\autorun.inf

Press enter and after this disconnect USB device from system and reconnect it.
To go to command prompt following the steps mentioned below:
1. Click Start.
2. Type in Search box CMD.
3. Right Click on CMD and RUN AS ADMIN.
4. Then type in attrib -s -r -h X:\autorun.inf.
Note: Please notice that X means the drive letter (E:\, F:\, etc).

If the above steps do not work, in CMD type sfc /scannow. Please use the following link for detailed instructions: System Files - SFC Command

Note: Ensure that the data is backed up from the memory stick before you follow above mentioned steps.

Please post back with the results.

Bought my Acer 1501LMi in april 2004. It has a slot for use of Memory Stick card. With my Sony Camera I bought a Memory Stick Pro which cannot be read on my PC using the specific I/O slot.The cardreader in my Acer is a Winbond(Stuurprogramma 5.1.2535.0 driver=disk.sys).On the web I couldn't find any drivers, however I think there may be a chance of upgrading (without having to change the HW) since I found on the Sony webpages that a lot of Vaio notebooks (also using Winbond MS Drive)can be upgrade (but an exe file must be run - of course I do not want to do use that exe on my acer).Any advise ?

So a while ago my automatic updates told me I should upgrade to Windows 10 on my Windows 7 computer. I did. I've used it find for a while and then suddenly it started repairing itself and I got one of those bsod that eventually lead me to a  pick a keyboard set up. It of course made it so that I couldn't use any ports, keyboards or mice no matter which I used. After some reading, I was told to go back to factory settings, but before I did that, I used the backup manager that HP offers. I selected music, videos, and documents, actually I think I selected all of the available options. Anyhow....once my computer was finished backing itself up onto my external harddrive with the HP program, I reset the computer back to factory settings. Upon opening the recovery manager and searching through my recovered files i have everything except my Open Office Files. Is there a reason why this happened? Did I do something wrong? Does anyone know why it wouldn't have accepted those as documents to back up? I'm extremely frustrated as I am a writer, a poor one obviously since I have to use a free program instead of Microsoft Office, and everything I was working on is simply gone with no explanation.  Can anyone help me understand? Possibly even help me find the files if they are somewhere not quite so obvious?

However, I have a Memory Stick Pro, and a Memory Stick Pro Duo in a Memory Stick Pro adapter and the reader can't seem to read either of them (they should both count as Memory Stick Pro which should be readable right?)

While I have sent feedback into Microsoft, I thought I might post here aswell.
In IE9 when you click a download, a pop-up from the bottom asks 'Do you want to open or save file.xxx from x.com' then gives you the option to 'Open' 'Save' or 'Cancel'
During testing, we found that users would just click 'Save' then not know where the file they downloaded went. After explaining that it was in the downloads, they complained that previously they just chose where to save the file and it saved there. Now they
have to open downloads and copy paste to the location.
We could teach the users to always drop down and select 'Save as' but I can tell you it would be a lot easier if there was a group policy, or a default we can change so the default was 'Save as'
Other than that, I have no complaints :D.

Hi,

When our website users click on an html attachment embedded on a web-page in IE9, the download manager will not display the "Open" option. It will only display "Save" and "Cancel" which our users don't like, having to save the
html document in a folder to open it. Whereas, when downloading attachments like pdf, word etc. all three options are displayed. 

Is there any setting to tweak , which will display all the 3 options for HTML attachments as well?

Answer:IE9 download manager will not display "Open" option (only "Save" and "Cancel" is displayed) for downloading HTML documents.

Hi,
As you know, the Open-Save-Cancel dialog box helps you prevent your computer from affecting by virus while downloading. 
So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.
could you please send me the link of the website from where you are trying to download the html attachment?
Thanks!

Answer:Need to save files on a busted USB stick

Normally, in cases of problems in reading usb drives i'd refer you to a Troubleshooting Guide (See this Guide Troubleshoot: Windows Won't Recognize Your USB Hard Drive HOWEVER, frankly, in your case (no pun intended) i'd be worried that removing / inserting / trying to physically manipulate the device might cause physical damage to the point where it's not possible to recover the data.

There are data recovery companies that specialize in recovering the data in situations like yours (and seems that pricing widely varies). I'd look online to find one and advise you try go that route.

Hello. Long story short, I'm currently staying in a hotel with internet access but I am unable to download apps to my Surface from the store, it is probably something to do with the proxy or something, but I wanted to know, if I was to go on my laptop would it be possible to save a Windows 8.1 app to my USB stick and then put it on my Surface and download it that way, I know this is possible with Windows Phone so I would like to know if it can be done on my Surface RT. Thank you.

Answer:Can I save Windows 8.1 apps to USB stick?

If it's a proper Surface, i.e. an x86 device running full Windows 8, then no problem. Just download the app (.exe or .msi) and install as on any other PC. (Assuming you don't mean a Metro app, but that seems unlikely - and anyway you can almost certainly get a better 'desktop' equivalent).
If it's a Surface RT, then I guess not. BTW, can you really do this with an app from the MS app store on a standard, not unlocked, rooted or dev mode, WP device?

I regularly come across advertisements for a (cheap, appr £30, mail-order)USB memory stick/pen with the capacity of umpteen floppies. It seems too good to be true, so I tried to find one in the local computershops but they only have the more elaborate ones for music, video etc. A lot more expensive of course. My husband only needs extra storage for a series of floppies containing the family tree, so the simple cheap one would be ideal. The fact they are not available in High St shops, puts me off a bit. Does this mean they are no good, too good to be true,have been replaced by better ones, or are so new they haven't reached the shops yet? Please help.

Hi, Let's try something- a small download that will help us see if there is any malware running.

If you have any other browser, than Internet Explorer, try using those. Firefox, or other browsers should allow downloading files by right clicking them, and select "Save Target As" (or very similar) then, you have to tell where to save the file TO on your hard drive...for this one, select the "Desktop" as the location to Save In.

If all you have is IE 6 or 7, use that.

go to Click here to download HJTsetup.exe
Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.
Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Additional Tasks dialogue.
Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.

Hi,I'm a novice at this stuff.My ancient PC runs MS Windows ME. I regularly back-up files to a Kingston 4GB DataTraveller memory stick. Yesterday it was just fine. Today I can't open it and my PC flashes up a messsage: "Disk is not formatted. Do you want to format it now?"I haven't formatted the disk because I guess that whatever is on it will vanish if I do.I also plugged the stick into another very modern PC running MS Vista and the same message appeared.I always "unplug" the memory stick by clicking through the on-screen protocols.Is there any way of opening or recovering the data on my memory stick?As I mentioned, I'm a novice so any help will be gratefully received!Thanks in advance for any assistance!

Answer:Memory stick memory loss

Memory sticks are not quite as reliable as the manufacturers would like you to believe. You certainly shouldn't format it - that will guarantee total data loss.Try downloading Recuva and see whether it can recover your files. It lists all versions of Windows back to 98 as being suitable, but it doesn't mention ME. However it's worth a try.

I have saved my XP info to a usb memory stick, now I have loaded windows 7, how do I retreive my XP info.I am using MS easy transfer tool to do this, but the computer says it cannot open the file, what is the next move please if anyone can help
thanks
Clive

Answer:download data from usb stick

Using EasyTransfer is not a good idea as it can result in data loss and doesn't always work.

It's much easier to just drag your files to the stick, then sort them into the User folders in Win7 explorer.

For example, from XP you'd open Documents folder, highlight the actual Documents and drag them to the Documents link in left-hand Explorer bar, holding the left click until it expands and confirms destination being copied into, using hypertext.

Then open your Pictures and do the same with them, any Music, Favorites, etc.

If your data is already zipped up into WET and not still available to be simply copied onto the stick and transferred manually, follow this guide to import them now into Win7: Migrate XP to Windows 7 with Easy Transfer and a USB Drive

I've been using IDM (6.25 build 3 most recently) happily for quite some time. For Christmas I purchased an online class which streams (?) from a .com website. I paid $128 for the class which remains online. Although I can view it anytime, I'd like to have it on my hard drive so I can put it on my laptop and watch it in bed instead of sitting at my desktop computer. Also I've purchased classes in the past and the website went out of business and *poof* my purchased classes went with them!!

When I use IDM to download the .flv file and play it back using Windows media player, I only get audio...no video.

Can anyone suggest:
-- what's going wrong?
-- a solution
-- another program I can use?

Thanks for the assist!

Answer:Internet Download Manager Plays Only Audio For .flv Download

IDM is currently at 6.25 build 12. IDM only downloads files it doesn't play them. That's the job of your media player. An alternate media player you might try is VLC available at Major Geeks.

Answer:MMC and memory stick?

2 - I don't know - check with manufacturer.3 - sandisk is a good brand and I have a few of their SD cards which work very well.4 - Buying from ebay involves all the risks of auctions sites - just be sure to buy from a seller with a good rating and remember that what you buy is not necessarily going to be new.5 - MMCs are usually interchangeable with SD cards, but not always according to some reports I have read.

Answer:Memory stick

Memory modules, if the correct size, and type, should work out of the box.
Be sure you have the right stuff by going to www.crucial.com and entering your computer brand and model, or the motherboard brand and model... for a list of what should work.
Then if you install it correctly so that it is firmly seated, the motherboard BIOS and Windows should detect it and accept it automatically.

Is there a way to stop this from occuring evertime I plug it in? There isn't a little tick-box which says always do this action - I seem to recall that I get such a tick box when I put a CD in the drive, although even if I choose take no action and tick the box, it still comes up every time I put a CD.

Answer:Memory stick

Hi

At times I have noticed that Windows can become confused when multiple USB memory drives are plugged in (or just random), but Windows looses the drive letter, thus this device may not show in Computer without a drive letter.

quick thing to try is Open Device Manager up and then open the Universal Serial Bus Controllers branch up and then plug in your Memory stick, you should see a USB Mass Storage Device reference, right click uninstall this, then pop out your memory stick and then replace it and the drivers should re-install, then check My Computer for the device.


Is there any data on this drive or is it new?

If new then in Admin Tools > Computer Management > Disk Management, right click the devices reference and choose mark partition as active and/or format as well.

Try a different USB port and PC if possible?

Question: Bad Memory Stick?

Hello all,

I've been running Memtest86 version 3.2 on my memory sticks lately. I mainly started because I read a lot about it in the forums and wanted to try it out. I'm kind of new to the whole PC scene, so I don't know exactly why, or when, to run memory tests or what all the numbers are supposed to tell me.

I'll start by listing my system specs.:

Processor:
Intel P4 3.0C GHz w/800MHz FSB
Motherboard:
MSI 865G Neo2-PLS
Memory:
Kingston ValueRam 1GB (2 x 512MB) PC2700
Hard Disk:
Western Digital 160GB, 7200RPM IDE

I realize that my current memory is not optimum for my system, but at the time I built my system, it was what I had, I plan on upgrading to PC3200 in the future.

My motherboard has 4 RAM slots, 2 each for Channel "A" and Channel "B". I've run each stick in each slot, individually, for a minimum of 5 hours per run. The first stick has consistantly run without any errors, the second stick has consistantly run with many errors!

My questions are these:
Have I run the tests properly?
Can I assume that ultimately there should be no errors?
My memory has a "Lifetime Warranty", how would I go about having Kingston replace the bad stick?

If I've left out any pertinent information, I apologize and please feel free to request it.

Any responses are greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
ahnadahodo
 

Answer:Bad Memory Stick?

There is really no way to run MemTest wrong and yes, there should be no errors whatsoever.

You can either take the memory back to where you bought it or RMA it directly to Kingston. You can find the RMA form on www.kingston.com under support.

Question: 2TB Memory Stick

Hello forum,
so I have lately bought a memory stick from eBay described as 2TB. I did not really need it, but I was fascinated about the size. I am having issue now that every time I copy some sample files such as some TV series or large bunk of photos, then always some of it is corrupted.
I have tried formatting the memory stick to different file systems: exFAT, NTFS, but it did not help. Is there any way to make it usable, so that most of the files will not get corrupted while copying? Do you have any ideas about what is happening or how to bypass it? I am also not sure what feedback leave to the seller on eBay
click here

Answer:2TB Memory Stick

"This listing was ended by the seller because the item was lost or broken."
says it all really - if you cannot load files without them being corrupted then the item is useless.
return it and ask for a refund.
These things are often not as described and use software to give a false size indication and this is what causes the corruption.

hi there.A month or two ago i used my USB mem. stick to copy across ubuntu onto an ASUS eeepc.I remember doing certain formatting things, etc. with the program to allow me to copy it all across, and i think the OS was about 2.7GB. It all went fine, and i could use ubuntu booting off the USB stick. Since then, i've sold it and left the stick with me.Now, i'd like to use the mem stick for something else, but it says its total capacity is 1.3gb. I thought this would be due to partitioning or formatting or something, yet when i right click to format, it just says the max size is 1.3gb!!Is there anything i can do to restore it to a 4GB size!? I dont have the eeepc anymore, so can't try formatting on that.

Answer:USB memory stick gone from 4GB to 1.3GB!?

If you have access to a Windows XP system you might try solution III from BEFORE posting flash drive problems. Or How do you format a USB flash drive under Windows XP?.Basically they are both suggesting you use Disk Manager utility of Windows XP to repartition and format the USB flash drive.  All data currently on the flash drive will probably be lost if you do this.  You should give some thought as to which file system you want to use, FAT (aka FAT16), FAT32, or NTFS.  If you want different file system for use with other operating systems, I guess you'll have to format it somewhere else.

"...yet when I insert the memory stick into the laptop nothing happens"Perhaps Autorun is turned off - this is actually a "good thing" as some viruses can exploit autorun.Use Explorer to see if the USB stick appears as a drive when you plug it in - if it does, you can look at what's on it in the same way as any other drive.If it never appears as a drive - please post back. Whar OS is on the laptop.

Question: USB Memory Stick

I wonder if anyone out there can advise me as to what the data transfer speed to a USB 2 Sony memory stick should be in the region of, ie how long to transfer on average 1MB of date to / from it??

Many thanks!!
 

Answer:USB Memory Stick

USB2.0 transfer rates are theoretically maxed @ 480Mbits/second similar to your net connection and not to be confused with megabytes per second, in which the speeds would average out at around 6/8mb/s

not all USB2.0 items will use the full bandwidth so speeds are varied.

but some info on Sony and MS

Question: Memory stick

What is the difference between a USB flash drive and a USB pen drive? There is a difference in price but that is all i can work out at the moment. Please can you help.
 

Answer:Memory stick

Hi helenb102,

Welcome to TSG!

According to Ask.com when I searched for usb flash drive, a USB flash drive and USB pen drive are one and the same:
Known By Many Names

Also known as a "flash drive," "pen drive," "keychain drive," "key drive," "USB key," "USB stick" and "memory key," ...

I already knew that, but wondered if indeed there actually was some difference - so, none!

They are sold with or without bootable software (Windows) depending on mfg. I have bought 512kb, 2GB and 4GB USB flash drives. SanDisk cruzer (512KB, 2GB, 4GB) comes with Windows compatible FAT16 (I think) bootable software. On a PNY Technologies (2GB) USB flash drive which does not come with any bootable software, I partitioned and laid in a compatible file system for Linux Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon which has the property (now) of persistent storage, so that any changes I install to it are not lost after I boot it up and install the changes - i.e. between reboots from it onto my desktop from it.

I was using an Windows XP computer that didn't have a floppy drive so I used a USB memory stick to save things onto. XP has that auto read and it knew were it was so it was no problem to access the files on it. Now that computer and I'm stuck using a Windows 98 that doesn't have the auto find. How do I get the computer to read the USB so I can access the files?
