I've had my external HD for a while now (Rock mobile disk). Last time I tried to access the data in it was a few months ago without issues. I tried using it yesterday and started to have issues. I have 600GB of data that needless to, is very valuable. It doesn't matter what machine I plug the laptop to (Vista, 7 or 8.1) I have a hard time getting them to read the HD. Once it finally decided to show up, I cannot do anything with the files. What I have done: [\*] Uninstalled drivers [\*] Ran windows Fix …

We all know technology is moving at an unprecedented pace, but it takes todays anoucement of a new range of camera from one particular brand to realise just how much. Especially when you think it wasn't that long ago that we were still using 35mm film or the Kodak Advantix (what ever happened to that?!?). We are now moving towards an age of 'everything digital', where we expect nothing less than our household appliances and everyday gadgets to be smart, intelligent and litterally ready for anything. And where if it isn't Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or has some smart party trick - …

So it would appear that the long and bloody war between the next-generation of high definition DVD formats is coming to a close, with word on the grapevine suggesting that the HD DVD commander-in-chief Toshiba is ready to surrender. While there will be the inevitable continuation of small skirmishes, mainly amongst geeks in both technology and home entertainment camps, the consumer should be greeting this news with open arms. After all, we have pretty much had enough after a couple of years of not knowing which format to buy, not knowing which format will be, for all intents and purposes, …

The DVD format war continues, with neither side determined to give up. So who seems to be winning now? Well, this article [URL="http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,1895,2104850,00.asp"]seems to claim that Blu-ray is winning[/URL], and will soon displace HD-DVD, as were a number of other articles I read in the last few days on the internet. This particular quote stuck out at me:[I]"[/I]Within three years it will just be Blu-ray." So says Frank Simonis, the Blu-ray Disc Association's European chairman, at the CeBIT trade show. I find this kind of amusing. Well, I'm not totally saying that Blu-ray is unable to outsell HD-DVD and win …

In response to [URL="http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,241557,00.html"]this article[/URL], claiming that the DVD format war may soon be over, I highly doubt it. In the article: [quote]The high-definition DVD format war, which has slowed consumer acceptance of the new players, may soon be over.[/quote] They go on further to state that hybrid players coming from Warner Brothers and LG will bridge the gap between Blu-Ray and HD DVD. Well, it's just not going to happen. There's several reasons. First of all, what is one of the most determining factors of a format war? In other words, what is it that makes it a war? …

Nikon seems poised to be the first company to bring 'cordless' digital still cameras to consumers, it seems. The Coolpix P1 and Coolpix P2 cameras will use 802.11 Wi-Fi technology to transfer images to your PC or printer. The cameras are due to arrive in retail later in September. The 8 megapixel P1 and 5 megapixel P2 will sell for $550 and $400 respectively. Both will offer 3.5X optical zoom, have the capability of transferring images to PC immediately they are taken (handy for laptop users) and be able to connect either directly to a single PC or to a …
