Accessing HDD via USB

Q: Accessing HDD via USB

I need help accessing my IDE HDD connected via USB SATA/IDE hdd adapter (model usb-dsc9). This HDD was my primary on an old computer running Win7 and still has all the files. I am currently running Win8.1.

The HDD shows in My Computer as a removable disk, with an auto-assigned letter. When I try to open it, I am told to "please insert a disk". It is showing in device manager as USB mass storage device with no errors. It is also listed in disk management under my primary hdd. The hdd is powered by the adapter and I can hear it spinning.

Any help is appreciated,

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have joined a computer (PC1) to a domain control server (2008), and user able to login using their domain user account - although recently I have found out that even though the computer (PC1) do not connect to a server, user still able to access using their domain account.
Is there a way for me to restrict domain account user from accessing the computer (PC1) if they are disconnected from server?
Hope my explanation make sense to you guyz.

Thank in advance

A:Prevening domain user from accessing Computer

Lots to be considered. Joining a domain is intended to give the company admin configuration control of all the company users.
This is normal, expected and even proper for the company to do this.

restrict domain account userClick to expand...

hmm; only the company admin should be able to do this and almost always it is done using some scripts, NOT by loggin into your PC. So - - who is accessing your PC remotely, the admin - - how do you know this occurs?

PCs joined to a domain usually get a replacement for PC Login - - the network form and that creates a link to the domain controller.

Connect you card to your machine. Then go to command prompt (run->cmd->enter) and enter this command; chkdsk /f X:
Replace the name of your card drive with X in above command.
If this helped, so OK, if not, try recover your data, using a good recover tool, and then discard that sd card!

I have a Dell desktop with wifi. It can see the AP (very strong signal), but it cannot access the internet ("limited conductivity"). I tried cycling power on the modem and AP which helped temporarily. Reboot does nothing. There are 3 other notebooks that have full access to the internet thru wifi to the same AP and cable modem.

The Dell has Vista op sys, and I've run thru all the diagnostics with no real solution. This pc normally uses a wired connection with no problem.

What should I look at to get this going?

A:Accessing optical drives on external computer?

No, you can't do what you are asking.

Does your Toshiba have an optical drive? If so you'd only need to buy an adapter/enclosure for the zip and floppy, but really I think it probably would cost the same just to buy ones that are already external rather than something to turn your internals to externals.

Hello I am trying to access some files stored on an IDE hard drive in Windows I recently found out about quot drive management quot function which I can use to assign a letter path to the drive - however it now says quot you need to format this drive before you can use it quot and then quot F 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 quot I think it could be something to do with older file systems and compatibility FAT NTFS But I don t know really Maybe I have set it up incorrectly The hard drive is not corrupted as far as I am aware The last time I used it was around a year ago on an older computer which I no longer have access to and it has been safely stored ever since any ideas will be appreciated Thanks nbsp

I have been using a Eminent Network Media Tank with a built-in WD 1TB hard drive that is FAT32 for some time now. As I have some new content I want to add to it I connected it to my notebook. I installed the drivers from the Eminent CD to make windows recognize the drive (a program called IFS drives was installed into the configuration screen). In the my computer screen I can now see the drive with the disk letter I appointed to it (Z) but when I try to open the drive windows says: "Dirve Z is not formatted, do you want to format the drive now?". Evidently I don't want to format the drive, I just want to access it and add new data. Does anyone know why windows says this and (more importantly) how I can achieve my goal without formatting?

I've tried various remedies but nothing has worked. The connection is fine, the hardware is fine. I did recently discover a quirk, however...if I go to a saved link to a login page requesting a password, it not only opens that page, it allows me to continue to use that site once I've entered the password. I only have two such links, so there are two sites I can still access.

Any suggestions? I'd rather not have to wipe the thing and start over... Thanks!

XP operating system, protected disk area . . .

I want to access files in the XP NTFS System (Protected Area). If I do a "Restore" for any reason, I get everything in the factory-supplied partition, which is a nuisance. Periodically, all I want to do is go into the protected area for a file or two. I do not need a whole lot of junk that I will subsequently delete once the "Restore" is completed (such as "Try & Buy", eg, Corel, etc.). The so-called "options" restore menu is ridiculously small and hasn't anything worth restoring from it. I need a comprehensive list of stuff in the 10gig partition. I have an 80gig drive, 10 gigs used for the system itself. Can I use a function to at least do a "copy & paste" from this area?

I have tried 2 different usb wireless adapters on my desktop to "associate" with my westell model 327W router connected (& functioning (from verizon dsl) to my laptop & the ssid is detected correctly but the MAC does not match the router's MAC!

Thanks in advance for any insight!

If you're report is correct, then likely that you are discovering a nearby neighbor's router with the same ssid.

you should use a wire connect, access the router and change the ssid to something

I have an oldish PC (circa 2000) which has died.

It ran Windows ME. The HDD is Seagate. [40GB Seagate St340823A]

I am wondering if I can salvage the HDD, at least to the extent of recovering some data from it.

I realise that one way would be to take another PC, and to add the drive in there.

But I was wondering if it is possible to buy an external hard drive and to use that instead.

Ideally, I'd like to know if there are any which come with spare space which can be easily used.

But failing that, how easy would it be to take the HDD out of an external drive, then temporarily insert the HDD from the old PC (so as to retrieve data) and then put the external drive back to its original condition?

I would treat the flash drive as suspect from here on in. Take it back to the machine where you saved it to the drive and open it there - if you can do this it may only have been a permissions issue but if you can, try another drive. You might recover the drive with a format once you have your file safe.

Both PC's worked fine before going wireless now both have the same problem - I have set IE settings to the minimum on everything but it makes no difference so l am assuming it has something to do with the router settings

A:Problem Accessing Some Sites Via Belkin

Can you check that you definitely have a connection by going to another site that you have never visited before? Sometimes it can seem like the connection is working, when actually its just getting the pages from your cache. (Although, if you posted that message from one of the PC's then you definitely have a connection).

If you are definitely connected, but you can't see some specific sites, I would struggle to help. If you don't have any software that might be interfering (pop up blockers / firewall / virus / spyware / adware / cookie blocker / any software that basically blocks a site if it doesn't like something about it), then its most likely a setting in the router. I once had that issue and someone fixed it for me, but I forgot what its called... If I remember, I'll post back.

A:accessing NT 4 server in a 2003 Domain

Try demoting the NT4 server so it is no longer a DC and integrating it through DNS into your network.

Because your NT4 server is PDC, there is alot to do in order to keep the NT4 server as a DC and integrate it into a Server 2003 Schema AD network.
It is really not worth doing to be honest! Your NT4 server should run fine as a server, but not as a DC within your Server 2003 environment.

I've recently gotten a laptop with a combo cdrw/dvdrom drive and I popped the dvd in, went to special features. . . and nothing. .

This is a VPN issue. BY DESIGN, the VPN will take over the default route and send everything (browser, email and share access) to the remote VPN server.

This is done to protect the VPN server environment from the local host being accessed via one of it's shares or other NIC card.

Hello all,
I am new to this site, so please forgive any rookie mistakes. I recently bought a new computer to upgrade from my old one. The old computer then proceeded to completely break on me. I took out the old computer's hard drive and then installed it as a slave in the new computer. Now I am trying to access my files in it. The problem is that the folder I need to get into is the user profile folder in Documents and Settings (I have Windows XP) which says access is denied. Is there a way I can open it and get around whatever type of protection is on the folder? Thanks.

I don't want to CLEAR the temp folder, that's the LAST thing I want to do.

Watched a video online from a website, forgot the website, but when it downloads a big video, it must save it to the temp folder.

I want to keep this video, along with a couple extras, so the question is, how do I extract this video from the temp files and onto my HD as a readable video format such as AVI/MPG, etc.??

Thanks very much for your time,

A:Accessing Firefox temp folder

Normally you don't save files from the Temp folder.
Actually it's not even advised to do ie corruptions so forth

You are best to save the data (movie, whatever) directly from the site you found it on
Now there are many programs to do this with (a lot are not free, depending upon what site etc)

The temp folder can be limited in size, and you are best to clear it regularly

Run CCleaner: to clear up not required temp files

Hi everybody, recently my desktop running on Win xp started to boot very very slowly (unimaginable ... it's not posssible to work !!!! horrible!!!) so I tried to boot into SafeMode. But in safemode after loading some files it displays Safemode in four corners and stops. I've a password protected account and "My Documents" folder is not accesssible to other users. When I try to get the files from "My documents" folder by connecting the SATA HDD to another PC, the folder shows empty and when I try to copy it, it doesn't allow. Pls tell me how to get back the files and folders. After backigup the files I'll format the drive and clean install Win xp. Thanx in advance...

A:Accessing folders/files of Password protected User account in Win XP

Try this on your other pc with the laptops hard drive connected:

Use an Administrators account:

open my computer and from top menu select tools >Folder options > View :

Then scroll to the bottom of the list in window and UNTICK "Use simple file sharing (recommended)"

click apply at the bottom and apply to all folders at the top and click ok:

In my computer note the drive letter of your problem hdd then run: "chkdsk D: /r"
where "D" is the drive letter of your problem hdd.

Let the process finish (might take a long time).

When diskcheck has finished open the drives and go to the folders that you want to access (dont try to open them yet)!

Right click on the folder and select properties then select security tab at the top,
Click the owner tab at the top
then in the change owner to section click to highlight the "Administrators (........)administrators"
(.....just means some chars)
tick "replace owner on subcontainers and objects" and apply. then ok to exit that window.
In the properties window that is still open, Highlight the "Administrators" and Tick the "Full Control" tickbox under "allow" Apply and OK to close the window.

You should now now have full control any data in that folder. Repeat step (2) for all the folders you want to get information from. You can also perform step (2) on individual files if you still cant access them.

If this does not work I'm sure someone else will suggest recovery method for you
let us know your progress please.

Converts FAT volumes to NTFS.

CONVERT volume /FS:NTFS [/V]

volume Specifies the drive letter (followed by a colon), mount point, or volume name.
/FS:NTFS Specifies that the volume to be converted to NTFS.
/V Specifies that Convert should be run in verbose mode.


convert d: /fs:ntfs - Convert the d: drive which in this example is a FAT volume to a NTFS volume. Note, if this volume is anything other than FAT, such as NTFS or RAW this command will generate an error.

Is there any way to access this info from XP?


A:Accessing NTFS from another drive/install

Do you have XP Home or Pro? If Pro, (at least I dont think it's in Home) then from an explorer window, go to TOOLS>Folder Options...>View. Scroll down the advanced settings to deselect "Use simple file sharing.(Recommended)". Click OK.
Then right click on the folder your having problems with, select properties, security tab, and click add, to add the user everyone and give them full control. And click okay.... see if that works.

A:TSPIP.sys crash when accessing VPN (remote desktop)

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

All your minidumps crash at TDI.SYS. This your Windows TDI Wrapper driver. They all have a bugcheck of D1.

(Click to consult the online Win XP Resource Kit article.)
The system attempted to access pageable memory using a kernel process IRQL that was too high. The most typical cause is a bad device driver (one that uses improper addresses). It can also be caused by caused by faulty or mismatched RAM, or a damaged pagefile.

Update your system to the latest Windows service pack.

Also, go HERE and follow the instructions for testing your ram/hdd/page file.

A friend of mine has managed to "lock himself out" of the original Administrator account of his own XP Pro machine.

Story: He decided to password his machine, but rather than password the original Administrator login he had been using, he opted to create a new user, also titled Administrator with his new password. Now he cannot get back into the original Administrator account, so cannot access his documents etc etc. When he boots up in Safe Mode, he can see the original account, but on logging in normally he cannot access this account. It does not show up on the Welcome Screen.

Any ideas would be gratefully received!

Long story:

I have a HP notebook w/ XP Home installed
I partitioned it with PM V8 into C & D
I tried to make a image of D using DI 2002, couldn't access the image even though I could access the drive. Gave up, I don't like XP anyway.
I reformatted C durning a fresh 2k install and installed drivers.
I imaged C again still using DI 2002,
I STILL can'r access the image file on D

Is it because D was partitioned when the O/S was XP even though it is now 2k?

Hope that made sense.

I don't think Nvidia GTS 450 is an on-board GPU, and I can't see anything in motherboard support site either. You won't find any way to change dedicated memory in BIOS.

Check your motherboard manual's BIOS section for which key to press to enter BIOS.

You can just get a newer GPU like GTX960 which will be a good upgrade. But I will let others to comment.

Hello all,

Over the weekend it seems that one of my Windows 7 computers here where I work lost connectivity with our file server.

Windows 7 Home Premium
Pentium Dual Core

Windows Server 2003 R2 Standard x64
Intel Core 2 Duo

It never had issues connecting with the share before now. Now every time I try to connect it to the share, it tells me that the password for the account is invalid. As the account for the workstation had no encrypted or protected files on the server, I just went and reset the password to make sure it hadnt gotten changed some how. This however did not fix the issue. The computer is able to access the internet and see that the server indeed exists on the network, but for what ever reason is not able to access the share any longer.

Any ideas?

Ive used windows media player to access a favourite site for several years with no problems.
Two days ago when I tried to access the site I got...  'Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The Player might not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file'..
Earlier that morning several windows updates were installed..thinking that might be the prob I deleted them..wasn't the prob.
Checked all settings etc everything seemed ok.
Checked firewall.
Ran Malware bytes and Ccleaner.
Tried several   other players ..same access.
I checked with others who use the site and no one else had a prob.
Did system restore..that didn't help.
Refreshed my computer and did all the luck.
So I am absolutely stumped and hope you can point e to some  setting or something that Ive overlooked  that might resolve the problem :D

A:media players not accessing streaming site

The only thing I didn't see mentioned was rebooting. I'm going to assume that you had to do several in order to do all that you have listed.
Is this the first time you have accessed the site using W8 as your operating system? Were the other users who mentioned 'no problem' also running W8? Have you checked the media site to see if there is an updated codex available for W8?

Hello everyone Just so you have a little bit of info on what is going on My uncle has a co worker who purchased a gateway all in one zx g Problem bios accessing from a pawned shop everything was fine she was using the computer and her nieces was using it as well to play games I am assuming one or the other might have turned off the computer incorrectly Problem accessing bios since the boot file is now corrupt She asked if I wold fix it for her which normally wouldn't be a problem I have a windows computer also and have already created a usb boot and repair for it However upon attempting to go into bios I found that it is password protected I am assuming the previous owner might have password protected the bios I have already tried the standard passwords such as password admin owner cmos administrator etc I have been doing some reading and found some articles speaking of getting the hash code and finding the password this way Is there anyway of doing this I know I could flash the bios but I am still learning so I did not want to attempt this yet Is there anyway of getting the hash code or a work around to gain access to the bios I cannot boot via usb or disk right now

So I've had this toshiba external for some time now.  When I first started using it, it was fast and I could access my files and folders without much wait time.  I had changed the letter (path) of the drive from the usualy F to Z and after doing so, it made accessing the drive much slower so I changed it back to F thinking that was the reason but it's still really slow.  When I try to open a folder, it will take 5-10 seconds to open and has the loading icon next to the mouse for the duration which used to not happen before.  Anyone know what it could be?

If at all possible I would backup anything on it first then run chkdsk on it to see if you start finding bad sectors possibly

Renable from C windows system config When I try to click on the config folder it displays a warning message telling me if I should go into that folder and of course I said continue and yes and whatnot Now everytime I try to access that folder there is no warning message anymore Basically I want that warning message re-enabled How do I do that The reason why I was checking for something like that is because there is always a blue screen during a chkdsk scan with error code c with a registry file failure that involves these files so I want to check Renable warning message when accessing config folder from system 32. if it is missing or not I forgot what the warning message said so I decided to do the same thing on my windows laptop It basically says you don't have permission to access this folder with the option to continue or not Renable warning message when accessing config folder from system 32. I basically want that message to popup again when I try to access that config folder on my windows vista laptop If I click continue I would have permanent access to this folder which I probably should not have done so I want to know how to go back to the way it was before where when I try to access the folder there is this popup message saying if I should have permanent access to this folder I checked the ownership of that folder on my windows laptop and the owner is SYSTEM Does changing the ownership to SYSTEM re-enable that popup message when I try to access that folder The one on my vista laptop says that config folder belongs to administrators

Hello Computer Bleepers I recently fixed a problem on my computer involving an infection by a rogue software called quot Windows Vista Restore quot Version June and eight infections including Rootkit TDSS After restoring the visibility on my hard and documents files accessing when "Access Denied" drive my files were visible but still in quot hidden quot format "Access Denied" when accessing documents and files Now that I ve unhidden them I get an quot Access Denied quot message whenever I click on them but I can still access MS Word documents directly through Word images directly through Paint etc The following is a list of procedures I went through You may skip this section and go directly to helping resolve the problem if you wish When I was browing the Internet one of my windows suddenly displayed a rogue error message saying that my computer had suffered a quot Hard Drive Failure quot I left my Internet on for minutes not realizing there was a problem before I came back and shut off the computer Next I went to a different computer in hopes of finding a solution The infection itself tried to lead me to the website by windows-vista-restore com and the company claimed to be SecurePay INC However no other websites were accessible Getting back to the infected computer the screen was black and half my files were hidden away and the computer tried to restart itself Error messages and the typical quot infections quot kept popping up I tried to restart my computer myself and switch to safe mode which was unsuccessful because of an existing screen display setting So I bypassed the recommended Safe Mode and worked on the problem in regular mode First I unplugged my Internet and went to the Registry Editor as indicated on multiple websites a risky procedure and deleted items including Advanced quot Hidden quot which resurfaced and Advanced quot ShowSuperHidden which remained deleted After restarting my computer again I turned on Windows Task Manager which was unaffected by the malware I shut off a few running programs including one with the name quot SwPGvtLdJxoV quot which later turned out to have an associated symbol identical to one used by the rogue software After discovering this I deleted this file from the RegEdit which temporarily solved some problems It turns out that online instructions asked to delete Run quot Windows Vista Restore exe quot but in the same location the random-character file was found There is not much info available but it looks like the new version of the program used a new name to hide its identity I ran MalwareBytes on my computer which took minutes for a quick scan and discovered Rootkit TDSS I quarantined that infection then restarted my computer Upon doing this however I ran another scan and this one took two hours It discovered seven infected items which I again quarantined and later deleted Afterwards I ran the in-built Vista System Restore feature which had a name similar to the rogue software After backing up the system to a previous date my files appeared to all be deleted yet they were accessible from the program itself ie Word The System Restore stated that my documents were unaffected Browsing through my files again I discovered a folder that had a strange alphanumeric name and contained the file quot spclite quot This was created during a previous infection by a rogue software named quot Vista Total Security quot which I had removed the month before After searching through the Internet I deleted this folder After changing a few configurations all my files were now visible but in a faded-color quot hidden quot form I could open them easily but they were hidden Several more scans using MalwareBytes revealed no problems I used a cmd script attrib -h quot C quot s d to unhide my files which worked in that they now all had a normal color However this is when the quot Access Denied quot error message kept showing up even though I was fully able to access my documents through Word No...

Have you connected any new hardware recently?
If so, uninstall and reinstall that to see if that solves it.

I was having a conversation on skype and firefox open but not browsing So only this app running Suddenly I saw the effect when you open a new window but in fact it didn't appear anything So I opened Kaspersky Internet Security - and watched the processes on Network Activity It was showing Skype and Windows Windows ip accessing External Explorer? my Explorer The strange thing is that Windows Explorer was making activity downloading and uploading just a few kb from an USA ip Then after minute Windows Explorer went away from Kasersky List and remained only Skype I want to add some additional details about my friend I was talking in External ip accessing my Windows Explorer? skype He is not from USA and he was using Skype on Android smartphone Was my Windows Explorer remote controlled by someone else Is my pc infected Is it normal for Windows Explorer to make network activity Or there is nothing to worry about Is the ip related to any update server from Microsoft or any other software My system Win bit Modem UPNP Unchecked Skype use port and connection Unchecked Protection Kaspersky Internet Security

A:External ip accessing my Windows Explorer?

That IP is an Akamai one. It could be one of many programs accessing one of Akamai's servers to check for
updates, etc. You can read about Akamai....Akamai Technologies - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I have my computer connected to a modem/router (Residential gateway) with an ethernet cord.

I then have a WAP also connected to this RG with an ethernet cord in order to get stronger signal downstairs.

What i want to know is, how come I can't access the WAP setting usings its's ip with the computer i have connect to the RG, but i can connect to the WAP with any other wireless devices (mobile phones/ laptops)? Why doesn't my computer see the WAP?

I'm asking this because my printer is connected to the WAP but my computer cannot use it because it cannot find it. Please help.

What do you do when you have an account with Google which you haven't used for a long time and you forget your password but to get a accessing problems accounts new password they require another email address for them to contact and you give them a non-Google email problems accessing accounts address Yahoo but they reject that saying it must be an account you can access which you can Then you give them another non-Google address and they accept that but require you to tell them the exact last time you accessed your Google account and the exact time you created the account and you don't recall either one What do you do when you attempt to create an alternate Google account but to do so they require you to give them your current email address and you give them a non-Google address Yahoo and they say a user with the email address you specified already exists So you give them your other non-Google address mail com and they say you cannot create an account with this domain name And they also require your nonexistent mobile address And when you try to create a second Yahoo address Yahoo also requires your nonexistent mobile address How is it possible for anything to be so stupid Am I missing something
