USB Drives- "Scan and Fix" error and SD Card drive doesn't work.

Q: USB Drives- "Scan and Fix" error and SD Card drive doesn't work.

Whenever I plug in my USB device it wants to "scan and fix" but works if I just continue. On the other hand the G drive which is for my SD card gives me errors of corruption even before I took it out for the first time. Something is up with the drives and they are updated and all that. Also, with the SD card it doesn't let me delete and when I do add it is just the folder without the contents which then I can't delete. Help me fix this problem. I have a LX series Gateway computer with the pop up drive if that gives you any idea what I am dealing with.

PS: Should have bought a Mac.

Hello all, am running Win 8.1 Pro x64. Today I noticed that the "Eject" option from the right-click menu doesn't work for either of my 2 CD-Rom drives, nor for a "virtual" drive - I get the same error message on all 3: "An error occured while ejecting [drive]".

Device Manager shows no errors, and I've tried uninstalling the drives and rebooting, but error persists. Can anyone help?

Also, to be clear, it is NOT a physical problem with the drives, as I can open them without a problem through the buttons on the front.

Finally, if for some reason I can't fix this issue, does anyone know of a way to at least just DELETE the "Eject" from the context menu?

A:"Eject" Option Doesn't Work for ANY of My CD-ROM Drives??

Just to try and determine if your context menu is corrupted, you could try and create a shotcut to open/close your CD tray. With that said, there are several freeware programs available to create these shortcuts so I would just google for:

how to create a shortcut to eject cd

Then pick one and try it out. I hve done this before; however, I can't remember which one I used but I think it was NirSoft.

Good luck.

This is a question for information about why my networking problem finally was resolved.
I have four PC?s on my network; one Windows 7 and three Windows XP. The Windows 7 PC always sees all three of the other computers. However the Windows XP computers sometimes don?t see the other XP computers when I press ?My Network Places.? Quite by accident I discovered that if I press ?View Workgroup Computers? then ALL the other PC?s in the network DO show up. Furthermore, if I click through "View Workgroup Computers" and access/edit a file on one of the other computers, then this computer will ALSO show up in ?My Network Places.? This behavior seems to be quite consistent and works every time I have tried it. Apparently, this is a workaround to the long vexing problem of why my networked PC?s sometimes don?t show up under ?My Network Places.?

My question: why does ?View Workgroup Computers? apparently always show all the networked PC?s, when ?My Network Places? does so only intermittently or sometimes not at all?

Thanks for any response.

Hi,

I am not sure whether I should be posting this in the Windows forum or the PC Hardware because it involves both.

I have an external 320 GB Transcend Drive with a lot of important data.
Recently, I unplugged it from my PC and took to another to get some files.
One the other machine (Vista), it didn't show up as far as I can remember, thought that was strange so i brought it back to my Laptop (Win 7, Dual Boot with Ubuntu 10) and it only showed as Local Disk, I have tried to find useful information on the net but some is very vague and some is outright stupid and irrelevant.

The fact is that the HDD is not broken. When in Ubuntu I can view the contents fine and everything is there, no freeze ups or anything, but in windows the drive shows up as Local Disk, I don't think it is a drive letter conflict.

The Device shows up fine in the Device Manager.
I'm sure some of you have solved this problem as it seems many on the Internet have.
If so please tell me in a few steps how you resolved it.. I am not formatting as I do not deem this necessary since I can access my data fine in Ubuntu.

Kind Regards

My Win 7x64 desktop was off for several days, with the console unplugged. Upon first start up today, I was prompted to update the AMD driver to Catalyist 12.10, which I did. It seemed to have an effect on another app that I wanted to reverse, so I ran System Restore to right before the computer was last shut down. It returned an error message, and again after a normal reboot: It read that System Restore didn't complete running. "The data is invalid (0x8007000D)." Running System Restore to later time points got the same result.

Later, I tried a cold boot into System Repair, F8 (nothing found). The System Restore error message now was as follows:

"rstrui.exe - Application error
The instruction at 0xfb30584d referenced memory at
0x00000008. The memory could not be read."

I did a google search on rstrui.exe error, but didn't find a lot and so far none of it has worked. The last system image backup before today was two weeks ago, so that's not a welcome option. Any ideas what the problem might be and how to get Sys Restore going again? Thanks,

A:System Restore doesn't work: "rstrui.exe - application error"

By chance, do you have Agnitum Outpost firewall on your machine? Other forum threads indicate this could cause problems for system restore. The recommended solution was to disable a function called Self Protection.

You could also see if there are any damaged or corrupt system files by running a system file checker scan from and elevated command prompt (option two.) If problems are found run the scan 3 times and reboot your computer after each scan.

I've got a weird problem here to report. I'm on a Lenovo N200 laptop running Windows 7 x64. Around half the time, the computer will boot up with the trackpad not responding. During times when this happens, I can look into the device manager and see a "code 10" ("device cannot start") for the trackpad. Restarting the computer fixes the problem.

I've had the problem once or twice over the last few years, but just a few weeks ago, it started happening very regularly (+/- 50% of all startup attempts). I can't recall making any notable changes to the system lately that could cause something like this. When the problem first started, it also affected the display adapter (Windows would start with an extremely low resolution and the graphic card would show a similar fault in the device manager, in addition to the trackpad problem described here), but this has since stopped.

I have tried updating the driver for the trackpad to a newer version, but the problem persists.

Hardware faults were considered, but I was able to successfully boot the computer from a WinPE CD five times in a row with no issues, so it would seem like this is less likely to be a hardware bug.

Any ideas as to where to go from here? I don't want to have to reinstall an otherwise clean and functional operating system for something this trivial.

Got a hard question that I need anybody to help me with. My Gateway computer which is the LX series, less than two years old has been giving me problems as it is Vista 64 bit. The problem is that the USB and the SD card slot both come up with the "scan and fix" error. It got so bad that I could not even delete files from the SD card and it would not accept new files either.

The fool I was I decided to try reformatting it to clear the data which now has the computer to reformat it every time I plug it in to the slot. Can anybody help me on either of the two areas because I have no clue on what to do.

Also, while scanning my computer for solutions I found "Event Viewer" that tells me all these errors and warnings on my computer. Does anybody want to clue me in on the possibility of what these are and solutions? There is also the problem that when I try system startup which you need to push alt F10, that doesn't work for me, and every once and a while programs don't respond. Please help me on this because besides that it is a great computer.

As this question was never answered I'll post it verbatim with my own comments below,
See original post here;
http://forums.techguy.org/windows-vista/756093-flash-drive-s-active-light.html

In all operating systems up to Vista, the flash drive's "active" light turns off when I go through the disconnect procedure; but, in Vista, it doesn't. I have traditionally used this as part of my explanation to others (and a convenience to myself) about when to not to remove the flash drive from its USB port.

This is a problem common to all Vista systems I've seen.

Why does the light not turn off in Vista?

And, is there an easy way to correct this?

Additional information: I have eliminated this problem being hardware-related. I have loaded Vista onto one of my systems here that previously had Windows 2000, then XP on it and it was only with the loading of Vista that the problem developed on this system. Just to be absolutely sure, I did a restore of a previous image of Windows 2000 and the problem went away again. I put Vista back on and the problem came back. So, this is strictly a Vista problem.Click to expand...

I have had the same problem with every Vista system I have used and every flash drive (note this means SSD NAND flash not HDD's or card adapters). AS the last discussion degraded into useless questions about hardware and other OS's let's get a confirmation that someone out there actually has a flash drive that turns its activ... Read more

A:Flash drive's "active" light doesn't turn off in Vista when "safely removed"

have done a litte research and testing in my lab on several machines and have confirmd the problem. What it seems to indicate to me is that, in Vista, the light simply indicates power, not data transfer. Whenever I am transferring data, the light blinks.

While I have never actually tested it, I do not belive that the "safely remove" feature actually kills all power to the USB port in XP. If that is the case, then there is really no danger as long as vista has acknowledged the disconnect and knows not to try to write data to the drive.

I can plug it into other PC's and iTunes sees it just fine. Any ideas on what I can do ? I'm about to upgrade iTunes. I disabled Kaspersky, and it STILL tries to scan the IPOD as a drive when I connect it. I suspect it has something to do with that.

I've tried every possible fix. CMD -> ipconfig /release - ipconfig /renew - reboot computer, nothing happens.

I tried Uninstalling and Re-Installing the NIC, no luck. Updating the Driver didn't help either as it says it's up-to-date.

Hello,
I had a mobo go bad so I replaced it (Asus P8Z68-V Pro/Gen 3 replaced by Asrock Extreme 4 Z67). All went well at first but my raid drive switched drive letters from E to D. I changed it to E in disk management and all my programs worked fine as did the raid drive. NOTE: Win 7 stayed on my ssd (drive C).

All of a sudden the raid drive was gone today. In device manager it shows both disks as being in good health. In Computer Management it shows as a single drive but it says it has to be initialized. My current bios setting is AHCI. Intel RST does not show Raid drives individually or as a single drive. Maybe I have them connected to the wrong SATA ports? Note: I have two ssd's, drive C with OS, etc and Drive G with games.
I need to get the raid 0 working. I hope I do not need to recover info and can just get it functioning again?

Thank you for the help.

A:New Mobo, pre-exisintg raid 0 drives did work, now says "Initialize"

Moving a RAID 0 volume implemented in the motherboard to a different motherboard is a chancy thing and often doesn't work. The problem is that there are no standards for this and each manufacturer does things in different and incompatible ways. Even different motherboards from the same manufacturer may not work.

It is always important to have a backup of your files and this is doubly so with RAID 0. All files of any importance need at least one backup copy while those of particular importance should have 2 or more backup copies. Data recovery from a RAID 0 volume can be a challenge even for a data recovery professional.

Hopefully someone can help resolve this problem.

So after my Period 4 class ended, I headed off to my spare class to work on some assignments on the Mac. My Flash Drive worked perfectly fine in, and before Period 4, then in Period 5 it wasn't working. On the Mac, during my Period 5, it said "Disk not accessible" with three options. I then tried four other computers using Windows 7 and it shown "G is not accessible - The volume does not contain a recognized file system. Please make sure that all required file system drivers are loaded and that the volume is not corrupted."
At home I plugged in the Flash Drive (using Windows 7 HP 64bit) and the same error occurred.

I am new here. At first a happy new year to everybody.

Yesterday I bought the boxed version of True Image 7.0 and installed it. During the installing I also made boot disks as well as as a boot cd, both in the "complete" version. After that I tried to boot from the disks and also from the cd (of course changed the bios to boot from cdrom). Both didn't work ! My computer booted and I did get the start screen from Acronis but after that it said: "Loading Acronis, please wait" , with the disks as well as with the cd. After that nothing happened anymore, even after 10 minutes.
I made a new boot cd but this time a "safe" version and that DID work. I assume however that, because there are no usb drivers etc. included, you can't use it with an external usb drive or so.
Does anyone here have the same experience or a clue to solve it ? I already emailed Acronis, but didn't get a reply yet (probably because it's New Year ?)
Thanks in advance.

I cannot remember if it worked for the brief time I had Vista installed before upgrading to 7; it was a relatively short amount of time (like 20-30 minutes), so I don't know if I used CTRL+A then or not.

I had an issue with the general user folder name, which was shown as "Alex_000".
Although this was a cosmetic issue only, I wanted to change this to "Alex".
I successfully managed this by changing about 50 entries in the registry (via regedit).

So fine so good.



Now I found out that there are still some leftovers with "Alex_000" in the Windows system, although I have tried to find every bit and peace, where possible:


When I try to open "Add or Remove Programs" in the Metro surface, I get an error message:


Windows cannot find

'C:\Users\alex_000...\Classic_{a lot of weird numbers and chars}.settingscontent-ms'.
Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again.



From another forum topic, i also tried this command via Metro and RUN to see, if the Remove service has a general problem:

C:\WINDOWS\System32\rundll32.exe C:\Windows\System32\shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL "C:\Windows\System32\appwiz.cpl",Add or Remove Programs
--> With this, i can open the Remove service without a problem.


Somewhere in the system, there must still be the Alex_000 info hidden.


How can i find this? (Tried the registry, tried a simple search on C: disc, but without success)

How can I solve this?


Thanks a lot!

Alex

A:"Add or Remove Programs" doesn┤t work anymore (in Metro)

The obvious answer is to change it all back to Alex_000. Renaming a system folder doesn't usually go well.

Installed Publisher 2003 on new windows 7 computer and noticed that the "fill" command would only fill in white. Went to the "Paint" program that came installed on the computer and the same thing was true. Should I upgrade to Publisher 2007? If "Paint" doesn't work, why would an upgrade to Publisher 2007 work?

A:Paint, Publisher "fill" command doesn't work

Hello Vrnuta, welcome to the Seven Forums.

By default the fill color (color 2) in both Paint and Publisher is white. Are you sure you remembered to change it to color you want to use?

Just recently I had re-formatted, this being one of the problems. It was fixed, and halleluja! I could restart! w00tzor!

I started installing my software and games, and continued restarting.

The last things I installed:

Soundblaster Live! Value Drivers
Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer Drivers

While installing both of them (From CD, I have two drives), I went into MSconfig and dis-abled the AudioHQ that auto starts, and when both of them finished installing (Well SBLive drivers finished a little early) I hit restart, as prompted by my msconfig.

I was greeted by "Primary Hard Disk 0 not found"

"Strike F1 to retry, F2 to enter setup utility"

I hit retry 3 times, and it didn't work. I went into my BIOS Setup, and it said my Primary Hard Disk is an "unknown" device. When I bootup and go into the menu again, It says its my 60 GB drive, as its supposed to.

What happened?

A little info that may help:

Primary HD with OS and programs installed:

Drive C: 60 GB Drive, 7200 RPM, manufactured by Western Digital

Drive D: 20 GB Drive, I THINK its 7200 RPM, manufactured by Maxtor

Both are formatted as NTFS. My computer was booting just fine before I did the previous actions, is there anything I Can do?

[Edit] I checked the other post with a guy having the same problem, and i just remembered:

The 60 GB WD drive is set as "Master"

And 20 GB Maxtor drive is set as "Slave/Cable select" (One or the other)

A:Help! "Restart" Doesn't work (Hard to explain), WinXP

MSCONFIG would not cause your HD to not be recognised by the BIOS. If your Bios is not seeing the HD there may be a loose wire. Bad cable of the HD may be going bad. Someone made a good point about spinup time in another thread. Myabe the BIOS is not giving the drive ample time to get to speed. If its a newer drive it may be having a problem with the motor. Try downloading Maxtor's HD check utility.

Hello
I have an HP pavillion desktop (s5360f) with Atheros 802.11 a/b/g/n Dualband Wireless Module and D-Link router DIR-615. My numerous Laptops and iPhons / iPads work fine, but this desktop which is further away from the router (in another room, about 20 meters) only shows 1-2 bars of wifi. First I bought a big additional D-Link antenna (7Ghz) but it didn't really help - sometimes connction shows 3 bars. I was told this antenna should help a lot. Then I checked with my router settings and saw that the HP uses "g" connection when everything else uses "n". I even set it to only use "n" but still it shows the HP using "g". I updated the driver (Atheros 9.2.0.113 for AR5B91), but it didn't help. I have "n" enabled in Atheros in Device manager.
Now I'm lost and can't think of anything else that can be a problem and / or how to fix it... I don't have any thick walls between the router and the HP, my iPhone seems to work in this room just fine...
Please help!
THANK YOU!

Hi all,

I noticed a really annoying issue on my machine.

When installing various software, when it asks me if I want to customise location, when I click on the "browse" button, it either doesn't do anything or in some cases it will open "Browser For Folder" window, but it will only show my Desktop>Usename folder, nothing else.

Software like K-Lite Codec pack will work fine as in I can change the installation location, but other software wont work :/

I do have mapped network drives if it makes any difference.

Any help would be much appreciated!

I have four computers running Win10. On two of them the windows "Start" button on the task bar doesn't work. So I can't get to Settings or Apps. I can right click on the Start button and get the "right-click menu". All of the other task bar buttons work.

What's going on with this? It used to work. For a while it didn't work on my laptop, now that is working but on two other desktop computers it doesn't work. All computers have same Win10 version and latest updates (although hardware differs some between them).

Can I add the "Settings" and "All Apps" shortcut I would normally get left-clicking on the Start button to the Start button's "right-click menu"?

Windows 8 64 bit

2 wd my book 4tb drives
I can see them in disc management as dynamic, and am able to write to them.

I use "storage spaces" from control panel, and that's how I end up with the notice quoted in title line above.
Any ideas?
Thanks.

A:"no drives that work with storage spaces are available"

Dynamic disks are NOT eligible for being added to a storage pool. (See:
http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/14878.using-the-storage-pools-page-in-server-manager-to-create-storage-spaces.aspx
: though it refers to Server UI, the underlying restriction is applicable to both client and server).
You must convert the disks to basic disks using Disk Management UI before they will be usable with storage spaces. Note this process deletes all data on the disks that you are converting.

I am trying to use the fsutil file setshortname to set "Program Files" to PROGRA~1,

but the system is giving me an "Error: Access is denied" response.

Hi TimFF,
This might be related with the UAC settings, check this thread:
give full permission for the users in program
files folder
The steps in the above thread is not recommended.
For the short name usage, we may consider to create a directory-junction from
PROGRA~1 to C:\Program Files:
With the following commands:
mklink /J "C:\PROGRA~1" "C:\Program Files"
Reference:
Mklink

I recently got a new laptop and I've been having a lot of trouble with the sound. It is the laptop seen here:

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....=1218090329155

Sometime the audio works, but then if I pause a song and attempt to resume it a few minutes later, errors occur and the audio seems to be disabled.



"Windows Audio has stopped working" flashes quickly, followed by:

"Host Process for Windows Services stopped working and was closed
A problem caused the application to stop working correctly. Windows will notify you if a solution is available."


Then, if I right click on the small volume icon in the bottom right by the time, go to "Playback Devices" I get the following message:

"This computer cannot play audio because the Windows Audio Service is not enabled.

Would you like to enable the Windows Audio Service?"

I click yes and the audio works again, but even after this it still acts funny.


Things of note:Sometimes the Volume Up/Down/Off buttons on my keyboard work, and sometimes they do not.
After this problem occurs and I restart it by going to Playback Devices, the audio cannot be turned up/down in Windows Media Player. I must manually adjust my (external) speakers.

I should start out by saying that the internet works at the university (we use Resnet), and that when I bring it back home and put in my cable, it doesn't work.

Windows reports that my laptop is connected to the internet, it's just that any attempt to go on any webpage or to ping even the router results in a timeout.

It's not that my router isn't accepting pings, I ping the LAN (not WAN) address (192.168.1.1) and I get no response.

I attached the result of an ipconfig /all:
http://img149.imageshack.us/my.php?image=ipconfigmp8.jpg

In addition, in an attempt to repair the connection via windows results in a message "WIndows could not finish repairing the problem because the following action cannot be completed: Renewing your IP address.

And the 'packets received' in the tcp/ip window are abnormally small.

If anyone has any insight into this issue, please help. No internet on my laptop is driving me crazy. Thanks.
 

A:Internet doesn't work despite "Connected" status

Restart the router as a first, this might sort you out. Also Try an ipconfig /flushdns command and after that ipconfig /release - /renew.
If this doesn't work, try assigning yourself static ip credentials as a test (with a known public DNS server). If this works, log into your router and try and ping the public DNS servers it has listed. If they do not respond, change them to known ones in your area.

Try these and let us know how you go :grinthumb
