CD shows data, but not individual picture files

Q: CD shows data, but not individual picture files

My wedding photographer put all of the pictures she took on four disks, two of them are importing correctly, but two of them show data on the disks, but no individual JPG files. I tried importing through windows live photo gallery and finding through my computer, I also tried the open folder to view files, everything says there are no picture files on this disk, even though we have viewed them using another computer.

Preferred Solution: CD shows data, but not individual picture files

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.)

A: CD shows data, but not individual picture files

Welcome to the TSG forum.

Photographers own the rights to print the pictures .. And usually don't give you the readable Images that the camera took.
They probably have proprietary software to read the pictures ..
The discs you can't read are probably what you'd take to get them printed.
The images you can see .. Are low resolution copies that probably won't make good prints ..For previews only.

They don't want you to print them yourself or have anyone else do it ..They want to charge you.
What's the extension (file type) of the data files in the Disc that you can't view ???

The drive on my MacBook failed recently and I really need to get my data back. I am hesitant to take my hard drive in for repair/recovery for fear that, somehow, the techs will be able to see the individual files in a dmg file I keep on my laptop. They will be extracting data by taking my drive apart (to bypass bad sectors?), rather than by just using software. What do Dmg files look like from a tech's perspective? Can they see file names? Preview images? Or, will they simply see a dmg file? Thanks for your time!

I just reinstalled Windows 7 64bit after a crash. I reconnected my second HDD to the machine where prior to the crash I stored all my photos and music.

The problem is that there appears to be no folders or files visible in the drive, despite it showing over 300GB of used space. See the attached screenshot for a better view of what I am talking about.

Drive F is the first partition on the drive
Drive G is the second partition on the drive

--Both should have a ton of data on them, but I can't see any folders.

Am I missing something stupid? I'm not panicked yet, but drive F is really important to me.
Thanks EDIT***I just booted into the same PC via a Knoppix Live DVD and this OS sees all my files just as pretty as you please... so clearly the data is all there (thank the FSM), but Windows is misconigured. This is a gonna be a facepalm when I figure out what I did wrong isnt it?

A:DATA Error [47 0F 94 93 F4 K5] shows up on Excel Files

No good news to report. Your Excel files (plus a few other file types) have probably been corrupted by having the first 1 KB of of original data replaced by the "DATA Error [47 0F 94 93 F4 K5]" text string and then having file length data modified to show only the 1KB length. Here is an old TSG thread

http://forums.techguy.org/security/437987-blackworm-virus.html?highlight=47+0F+94+93+F4+K5

I have not found any on-line mentions of anyone finding an easy way to recover and rebuild the remaining data. Some companies claim to offer recovery services for a fee but none seem to claim 100% success.

EDIT: Someone in TSG's Security forum may be able to help you with removing the virus(es) that caused the problem and prevent future corruption.

Hello,

I am stumped. When I go to My Pictures the folder immediately closes and the data execution prevention prompt appears.

Here is what I have done:

1. Checked all my security settings and scanned both the computer and specific folder. (Settings were good and both scans came back negative)
2. Opened various files types from other locations just to see if it was a compter wide problem (other picture files opened correctly)
2. Went to the data execution prevention prompt under My Computer and turned it off for Windows Explorer to see if this would fix the problem... now I am getting a Windows Explorer error which closes the My Pictures folder as well.

Any help fixing this problem would be awesome! So many pictures and memories from over the years are at stake! Please help!

All:
Having a heck of a time figuring this one out. Would GREATLY appreciate any help/suggestions. Knock yourself out with a technical explanation, I'm an IT guy but even this one has me baffled.

Rebuilt my OS to Win7 Professional last Monday. After OS installations, I typically need to install drivers to recognize the additional SATA (Data) Drives that I have on the machine. This is perfectly normal and I've done this without fail almost a dozen times.

With this last installation of Win 7 Professional, the iTunes folder on an external SATA drive displayed initially and then dissappeared. It STILL appears to be taking up space on the drive, however I can not view it or access its contents. I've searched for files inside the drive and nothing. Repaired bad sectors, ran chkdsk on the drive and no luck. The folder still appears lost?

Any new suggestions or ideas to try? Yes, I do have a backup but its over a few weeks old and I have since added new content to the drive. Previous versions takes me back BEFORE my last backup was completed.
Thanks,
Nate

Here's my situation: I've been working on an Access 97 app to assist in finding various properties in an external database. It's easy to check all the fields in the tables and their properties (the better to spot inconsistent data types, etc) but I'm having trouble doing the same with forms. For any given field I want the user to see what forms use that field in a control, but I can't seem to find a way to iterate through each form's controls and check its record source the way I can iterate tables or queries (For Each thisField in thisTableDef.Fields, etc).

Can anyone help me out? I'm real pleased with the way the rest of the app is going, and this is kind of annoying.

--Don S.
 

A:Finding individual data sources for controls on a form

I have to experiment with this, but I believe that in order to view a forms controls, the form must be open. Once the form is open you should be able to go through it's controls using 'For each Thiscontrol in Forms!frmMyForm.controls'. In fact you could probably loop through all open forms using a nested loop.

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">code:</font><HR><pre>
for each ThisForm in Forms
for each ThisControl in ThisForm.Controls
[/code]

If already know this and it's still not working, how are you trying to go through the controls? What happens when you try?

Keep us posted! Good Luck!

Good Morning guys,

This is my first post on Tech Support Forums!

I am not to sure how much help I can be to people here other than building gaming Rigs, so I will keep one eye on that forum to see if I can add value here.

Now, on to my question!

I have assembled an Excel spreadsheet with hundreds of lines of date. (Business Name, Address, Contact Number, Email, Website). We have a CRM system which does not allow me to enter new clients myself, so i have to complete a CRM Request form for each potential client on this list (over 600) The CRM request form is a Word Document with sections for each part of the data on excell.

The problem is, I am too lazy to copy and past all of the lines of data into individual CRM Request Forms (Word Documents)

So in short... correct me if I am wrong. I think I need to create some form of macro to do this for me. (copy data from excell, open up the word document, paste the data in the specific places, then save it, then repeat for the next line of data)

It would be greatly appreciated if you could point me in the right direction on this one people.

Kind Regards,
Anthony

Hi All,

I have a workbook consisting of 10 worksheets. First three worksheets contains Pivot Table, which gets the data from 4th, 5th and 6th worksheets. 4th, 5th and 6th worksheets gets the data (using a web query) from an external CSV file. I want to have a "Refresh Data" on the fist sheet, which is when clicked, refreshes the external data and the pivot tables in the following sequence :-
Refresh the data on 4th Sheet.
Refresh the data on 5th Sheet.
Refresh the data on 6th Sheet.
Refresh the Pivot Tables on 1st sheet.
Refresh the Pivot Tables on 2nd sheet.
Refresh the Pivot Tables on 3rd sheet.

I used "ThisWorkbook.RefreshAll", but it refreshes the data in one go, not in the required sequence. I also tried "Sheets(index).Calculate" for different sheets, but it does not refreshes the external data.

Any help in writing the macro/subroutine to achieve this functionality would be highly appreciated.

I'm looking at a windows 10 home machine owned by a 14 year old kid. It has been running slowly and erratically. I looked at his desktop and it seems to show his actual D drive folders on the desktop, along with his shortcuts. In other words, it shows system files like "Program Files" and "Program Files(x86) right on the desktop.

If I open "Computer" I see that the D drive shows the desktop in its root. If I look at the user structure I see nothing under there but I see the normal files that should be under the user scattered about between both the C and d drives.

It seems that something has scattered the files about between both drives and yet it still works, albeit slowly. Does anyone have an idea what might have happened? It seems the best course of action is a complete system reset back to factory specs. I also notice that the C drive is "Drive 1" and the D drive is "Drive 0". As far as I know the drives should be C=Drive 0 and D=Drive 1.

Is there a way to "surgically" straighten this mess out, or is it best to just do a factory reset? Can anyone hazard a theory as to what might have happened?

Other scripts would be "I want cookie" or "I want Toy".

Below is an example of the script i have in a notepad with .vbs extension:

Dim Message, sapi
message="I Want Juice"
Set sapi=Createobject("sapi.spvoice")
sapi.speak message

A:Is it possible to assign photos as Icons to individual files?

Hi Daysaved, welcome to TSF.

You need to re-size the photo to about 20x20 pixels, or any standard icon resolution.
Save the file as .ico

You can now right click your file, go to 'Properties'. Under the 'shortcut' tab click 'Change Icon'. Browse to your newly created .ico file and select it.

This should work for all types of files.

Does anyone know of a program that can zip files individually, like in batch? I mean, every program I find just zips the files all into one, but I want to zip a folder full of hundreds of individual files into individual zips for each file. I don't want to zip the entire folder into one zip, but each file into a zip itself. This is murder to search for on google.

I have been scanning up photos in Windows 8 and now windows 8.1. Unfortunately I forget and left the system open for more than 4 hours and it upgraded itself. At any rate in going back to check some of the photos I had scanned, they are no longer in their folders and have disappeared completely. I did searches, etc and nothing. I was also in the middle of scanning a bunch of photos when suddenly the message came up that the folder I was scanning to was no longer there. An hour later I finally located the entire folder and scanned photos in the recycle bin. It just went there itself.

What can be done to prevent this. I scan and toss the photos but now I find that they are disappearing days down the line.

I can't get rid of CyberDefender or MyIdentityDefender. I don't like it because it severely limits the information that comes up on the web to choose from. I've tried to remove it with Control Panel Add or Remove programs. It kind of flashes real quick and then just stays there. Some blogs recommended using certain free (or so they said were free but were not) downloads of spyware removers. The problem with these is that I am at risk of having it remove something my job downloaded, some software that works with microsoft word and then I can't work (at home). I had to do Go Back To an Earlier date on the computer to undo this. I need to know what the specific files are I need to remove and how to find them in the computer. Sorry this question was so wordy. I'm new at this.

HI  I did a one-click backup of my Yoga 3 pro machine when I did a fresh load. It worked like a charm and was convenient. I now, however, need to get some individual files from that backup but cannot find how to do so.  I have checked several forums but have not come right. Please, can you offer some assistance?

Windows XP Pro SP3
I have 4 WD external HDD's purchased between 2004 and 2008. On these harddrives are various files, including but not limited to the following:
+backups for my primary hd
+tv shows
+movies
+program installers
+personal movie collection used for editting
I have found that certain files cause windows explorer to crash - be they movies, tv shows, installer files, files on backup, etc. - when highlighted and cause Dr. Watson to go bonkers. There seems to be no connection: files with similar sources, extensions, sizes, use dates, names, pathnames, etc. seem to work fine. In all there are just over 20,000 files, of which maybe 30 cause this problem. It is possible in transfers they were just simply improperly transferred (causing pieces of the file to be lost forever), but there is a file I KNOW that happened to and Dr. Watson never went bonkers and Explorer never crashed when I selected it; it was an .avi of "Beetlejuice" whose transfer was terminated before completion, and all it does when selected is simply not play in WMP. Any ideas?

I'm using Windows Home Premium x64, and I want to delete a single file from a backup created by system protection. When I open a restore point, It takes me to an address like "\\localhost\C$\@GMT-2012.03.14-xx.xx.xx" I can see and open all of the files on that folder, such as like play videos from it, but I cannot delete anything from it. When I try to access the folder through disk management, access is denied. how do I go about deleting individual files from the backups?

A:How do I delete individual files created by system protection?

Hello Bhootnat, and welcome to Seven Forums.

A restore point is different than a backup. You will not be able to delete a specific file included in a restore point. Any attempt to mess with a restore point like that would most likely end with the restore point no longer able to be selected to be used when doing a system restore.

Instead, you could only delete specific restore points if you like.

System Protection Restore Points - Delete

Hope this helps,
Shawn

My Mom just got a new HP Desktop computer with Windows Vista Home Premium installed. It has been fairly easy for me to figure out how to delete all cookies, temp internet files and history. My Mom wishes to be able to select which cookies and which temp. internet files to delete and which to keep. How does one do this in VIsta? She would also like to get to this point via clicking on a cookies icon set up on her desktop. How can I set this up for her? I know XP to some extent not Vista. Help! Please! Seriously!

I also found a Vista compatibility listing ( find.pcworld.com/56584 ) in PC World magazine relating to a patch that will allow the running of older software and games within Vista. Do you have any experience or tales relating to this? My Mom has a number of older Mah-jong games.

Thank you!

Is it possible to resotre individual files from a full Image Backup? I Created a System Image. If this is possible, how is it done?

A:Can you restore individual files from Full Image backup

You certainly can with commercial products like Acronis, but I don't know about the Windows product. I would guess you can--if you can't, that would be a major shortcoming.

I have an old album that I copied from my original cassette tape. The tape was showing signs of wear. The software that I used at the time copied the entire album into one long file. Is there any software that will recopy this and break the album up into the individual songs on the album. The album is an old Golden Earring album. Am I going to have to use NERO 8 and copy the entire album one song at a time to a new folder?

Is there a faster way to password-protect folders than the ones I already know, such as AxCrypt or putting in a zip with 7Zip? I have a lot of huge files and it would take too long.

I do NOT need powerful encryption for these particular files. No hacker is ever going to get them; it's only to keep out my roommates who use my account on my computer. For various reasons setting up separate accounts is not an option.

I"m wondering if there's some way that's not as secure as AxCrypt because that's overkill for me but would still add a password and do it quicker.

A:Faster way to password-protect individual files/folders

I have installed software that can encrypt/ decrypt individual files/ folders or multiple files/ folders. It's pretty easy to use via drag/ drop folders/ files that you want to encrypt (accepts multiples) or select via right click context menu.

Right click a file/ folder to encrypt/ decryptDrag 'n' Drop multiples to encrypt/ decryptEncryted files have .pcr extensionIf you use the main program window to decrypt files or multiple files it totally and permanently removes encryption and restores the default file extension.

If you decrypt via click and open - you are asked for a password to open the file and it remains encrypted when you close the file.
