I am having my friend USB, which contains the error while Formatting, copying, deleting, renaming, moving files from it. The error is `"The Disk is Write Protected"`, I don't Know why this all happens? I try to repair it with the google help and find some common solution and tried too But I failed (i.e. that's don't work for me) My Work (My trials) Regarding the hotfix, I think you can install it directly. The hotfix will replace/update some USB related system files which would be helpful for USB related issues. Actually, I have had this type of issue before …

Hi I am trying to salvage user data from a hard drive that was installed in a Dell laptop. I have plugged it in to a Dell 490 workstation running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit using a USB connection kit - leads and power supply. First I used Chkdsk, it ran for over a week but failed after the PC rebooted due to a MS update. I tried again and Chkdsk completed checking the disk in a shorter time span. Several errors were found and repaired, 25 index issues and a bad cluster. However, I couldn't access the drive's contents. …

Hi all! I have a USB Modem (dongle) made by ZTE. I normally use it for connecting to the interent. It also came with a dashboard/software that I can use to send & receive SMS and even make a call. I want to make an application with VB.NET that will use this USB MODEM to send and receive SMS to different mobile carriers. I want it to send SMS using the SIM Card inserted into the USB Modem. Is there a way to accomplish this from VB.NET? I have seen people talking about doing the same with GSM Modem and …

It's not often I start a new thread, but I've hit a bit of an unusual problem...Admittedly one of my own making... I have a laptop with a completely dead HD, which I've been using for a while with Ubuntu 9.10 installed on a bootable 8Gb USB stick with approx 3Gb of persistent storage. I've been using it for a little while now and everything was going rather swimmingly until I ran Bleachbit to clear some space by cleaning some of the caches, but somehow it completely borked the install so it won't boot fully. (Not sure exactly how I …

Hello. I have just purchased a Lexar JumpDrive S50 32 gigs and I am having trouble accessing the USB. The USB shows up in the my computer window with a grayed out icon and when I double click it it states "Please insert a drive". The same statement is displayed when I try to format it. I am using a Windows 8 as my main computer, but I have tried it on a windows vista and windows 7. So far I have tried updating the drivers (through device manager and through Lexar's website). I have also reinstalled the usb drivers. …

Hello everyone. Hopefully somebody can help me. I have an old 250 GB external HDD which I used to use for data storage. It's a fairly old model (bought it in 2005) and the USB port on the caddy seems to be broken. At first, I could have the HDD connrcted if the USB cable was in a specific position but that no longer works. I was wondering if someone could tell me if this particular external HDD is, like most, an internal drive in a shell or an actual drive. Unfortunately, I don't have the model number but it's …

I'm having problems reading or writing files in my C++ program. I'm using Fedora 16 on a USB stick and Eclipse for C/C++ developers. Here's snippet of code from my program. fp is always 0. I've also got other code that is loading files (which always fail). I've tried running Eclipse using 'sudo' but that doesn't help. I don't receive any error messages. [CODE] FILE* fp = fopen("test.xyz", "r"); if(fp) { fprintf(fp, "test123"); fclose(fp); } [/CODE] Any help would be great. Thanks! Chris

I'm unable to get any new USB devices to work with my Fujitsu laptop. Devices that I've been using for a while (such as keyboard, mouse, printer, ext. hard drive) still work. Whenever I try to connect any new device (mouse, USB stick, ext. hard drive) it immediately recognises what it is in the pop-up balloon from the system tray but then starts up the Install New Hardware wizard which fails every time. The devices themselves work in other computers and all of the ports work with other devices. I'm running XP SP3 and I think it's an OS problem. …

Recently I have been learning about the socket module and how you can create networking applications using it. I was curious if it would be possible using the socket module to either: Set the port as a USB port to trick the computer into thinking a USB is plugged in and 'fake' incoming data from the port allowing you to manipulate data and relay it through the usb port. or, Set the port as a USB port and relay the information from the usb, directly to the application and then manipulate it and then send it to the computer. So …

Hi, I have been advised by an HP chat technician that My laptop (Vista, 32 bit, < 1year old) a. will not access more than 320Gb via USB b. will not accommodate more than 320Gb internally Both he attributes to mother board limitations. Now (b) I'm willing to accept, althought disappointed - my laptop's under a year old- but (a) surprise me. What limits the size of external drive you can access? a. USB2 limitation? - but there are bigger drives on the market b. Windows limitation c. motherboard limitation (even though it's connected by USB In other words, should …

Hello, recently i found one of my old USB devices but when i plugged it in and tried to delete a file it told me it was write protected. Now i have decided to format it but it doesnt let me because it is write protected. It doesnt have a slide button to turn off write protection, and ive tried multiple low level formatters in vain. I also tried to delete partition, and to change the regustry value to 0, but that doesn't seem to work either! The USB is 1GB and it isnt a brand name USB as far …

i recently found out i had the virus called RECYCLER, and that it had infected my usb and hard drive. So the first thing i did was end the process called ctfmon.exe, as i read it was part of the virus. I also ran a program called combofix with a script that was supposed to kill the virus completely from my usb and my harddrive. However i went to check my processes again and found a few peculiar processes - csrss.exe, smss.exe, lsass.exe, slserv.exe, catchme.tmp, x2 dllhost.exe, plugin-container.exe, msdtc.exe, jqs.exe, sched.exe, and finally the ctfmon.exe had returned. How do i …

Hi, I spent a lot of time searching for a solution to a problem I was having getting into CMOS with my USB keyboard, which is connected to a KVM switch. All of the USB options were enabled in Integrated Perpherals, but the keyboard wasn't functional until after the boot sequence and DOS started up. The solution was to make sure the USB cable was plugged into USB port #1. I found this suggestion in a paper in the MS Knowledge Base regarding USB/Motherboard HID compliance. Regardless of whether your keyboard is connected to a KVM or directly to your …

I'm currently re-writing a bit of code and i'm in two minds about which way to take it. Advice would be greatly appreciated :) The application is used to control a USB circuit board. The board has 32 analog outputs. The outputs are switched on and off by sending a 32bit integer to the board. So to turn on outputs 2 and 4 you send it the number 10 (10= 0101) or to turn on 1,2 and 3 you send 7 (1110) etc. This part is outside my control. I currently set the outputs usign a simple math equation: [CODE]Output1 …
