Error - 1310 Writing To File When Trying To Update

Error, "error 1310. Error writing to file: c:config. Msi1658852. Rbf" when trying to update adobe and gets the error for other programs as well. Original title: config. Msi1d4a8da4. Rbf: what is is, why do i apparently no longer have it, and how can i go about installing updates to many, many different programs without it?

Ok, so i've only just recently started getting this problem, but i don't know what to do. I will use the example of an adobe reader update. This is what the update error message said: "error 1310. Error writing to the file: c:config. Msi1d4a8da4. Rbf. Verify you have access to the directory. "If this is actually a thing, i basically should have access to the directory, as i am on an admin profile.

Error Writing Files To Cd, Cd Was Already Finalized

I want to copy a data file to a new cd-rw. I put the cd in the machine and it asked what format i wanted. I chose 'like a flash drive' for adding and deleting files later. After about 10 minutes the cd was ready. When i tried to copy my file, it said i couldn't because the cd was already finalized.
What went wrong? Can i salvage my disc or does it have to be binned? How do i get my file onto a cd?

Disk Read Error And Recovery Disk Not Working

I have a toshiba satellite c650 that has recently come up with a disk read error. I want to access the command prompt to try some potential solutions that i have read about on the internet. I have made a windows 7 recovery disk using my other acer laptop which also has windows 7 installed. When i use the recovery disk and it has loaded the files etc it just brings up a black screen and the cursor. Does anyone have any ideas as to why this is happening? I tried booting my acer laptop from the recovery disk and it worked fine. Also does anyone have any suggestions as to why i am getting the 'disk read error - hit ctrl, alt and delete to restart' message?

Error - Logonui Exe No Disk - Outlook Exe No Disk

I have windows 7 professional running 64 bit. A very annoying error pops up every five minutes or so. The message varies and can read "logonui exe no disk" or "outlook exe no disk" or "your favorite app. - No disk" depending on what i am running at the time. I have looked at many forums and can see that this error occurred in previous windows flavors. Some answers point to malware or infected file, others seem to think it's a corrupt install file. I have a fresh install of win 7. My previous os being xp.

I have reinstalled win7 and tried repair functions. No luck so far.

Error - There Is No Disk In Drive

I am getting this error code any time i turn on my hp photosmart, and also when i close the tray on my cddvd burner. I am running an acer aspire 5920. I did a clean install of windows 7 over my vista home premium. I'm pretty sure that i still am considered a novice user, comparatively speaking.

Read Disk Error

I was wondering if you'd be kind enough to help me? I followed this tutorial after creating a duel boot with windows xp http://blogs. Techrepublic.com.com/window-on-windows/?P=1751 and for some reason i get the read disk error. No matter what i try, nothing seems to work following all the bcd commands, fixmbr and fixboot.

All i want to do is delete my xp partition and start using 7 to it's full on the hdd. I'm sure it's something really simple, but i can't for the life of me figure it out?

Disk Read Error

Well i started a couple of days ago at first when i booted up my computer it came up saying something was preventing it from starting and it could be caused by a hardware change or installed software and it asked me to put in the repair disc. So i did this it managed to fix it for a while then randomly it started again so i repeated what i did last time with out any success so i switched off the computer and tried again same kept happening for about 5 restarts so i gave up and left it. Then the next it works again but when i restart my computer to make sure i get this disk read error with it saying ctrl-alt-dlt to restart so i did this and over and over again it kept coming up.

But then i got the error that i mentioned at the start and so i repeated the process no success but then randomly it works again. This problem keeps on occurring randomly and going away randomly and it is unbelievably annoying as some times it can take minutes to fix sometimes hours. So is there any fix to this problem or is a reinstall of windows 7 the only option.

No Disk Error Message

Both my wife and i are experiencing problems with "no disk" error messages on our windows 7 machines (windows 7 professional). Her error message displays on start up. Mine just pops up randomly. Here's the message she gets:

Userinit.exe - no disk
Winlogon.exe - there is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drivedeviceharddiskdr7

We can get rid of the message after clicking the "cancel" button about 11 times.

Here's the message i get:

Outlook.exe - no disk
There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drivedeviceharddiskdr7

So far, i can close the error message window by clicking the "continue" button. She's been getting the error for a couple of weeks now. I started getting the error yesterday. I've run system and malware scans on both machines, using malwarebytes and microsoft security essentials. Both machines seem to be clean. The messages don't seem to be causing any harm, but are annoying. Any ideas on how we can eliminate them?

Disk Read Error On Loading

Yesterday, i was working on windows 7, not overloading or something, but suddenly i heard the sound of the hdd that you hear when it stops (when you shut-down), and the pc stopped responding except the pointer. I restarted, and it gave me:

Disk read error
Press ctrl+alt+del

I restarted, it sort of booted giving me the 2 choices of windows 7:

-Start normally
-Launch repair

In start normally it loads up the boot screen but just after that it restarts. It restarted and read the hdd like "bzbzbzbz" after post. I entered bios, it read it as 571 gb and some weird stuff.

I happened to have live cd of linux on my usb flash (on which i'm working now), i mounted hard disk drives, they all work! But the "documents and settings" folder is empty.

This problem happened before and i don't know what the cause is?

Is it the mbr, track zero or sata controller? And please tell if i could do something through my usb flash (like launching a specific test or fix)
Hdd: western digital 160 gb 7200 rpm sata

Motherboard: gigabyte, chipset: intel 945g
Os: used to be windows 7
Ram: 1 gb ddr2

Easy Transfer Error Enough Disk Space Available

I recently upgraded my xp to windows 7 and during the process created a windows easy transfer file. The file created without any trouble and i saved it to an external hard drive. When i went to reload it back, after installing windows 7, i got an error - isn't enough disk space available to transfer files and settings. My hard drive is currently in two partitions - c: (20gb) which contains my operating system and d: (200+gb). The c: drive is full and when i go to advanced in the windows easy transfer. It looks like it is trying to transfer data there. I am not sure what to do next.

Live Mail Disk Space Recovery Error

I use wlm to read alt. Binaries newsgroups. I frequently delete message bodies. I'm convinced there is a bug in wlm unless somebody can help me. When i go to close wlm, it asks if i want to recover unused disk space. I assume this is like the old oe "compact" feature. I say "yes" and wlm immediately tells me it is in use by another program. This isn't true as it is the only program running. Since alt. Binaries are huge, i can't decrease the size of the database, and when it approaches 2 gb, wlm becomes totally unresponsive and i have to resubscribe and re-download every again, terrible wast ot time. Any experts out there who can help?

Disk Read Error Win 7 Wont Load

On monday my computer worked fine in the morning, and then i drove 5 hours back to school and when i attempted to turn the computer on i got a "disk read error press ctl+alt+del to restart"today, i burned a copy of the vista recovery disc to a cd and booted from there and ran a repair. I then also followed instructions from a forum on here that said os was not listed when he ran the repair. That cleared up the disk error problem. However, now my computer will still not load windows. It keeps loading to a windows error recovery screen and i get the options to start in safe mode, normally, or last known working stage and i have done all of those and they attempt to run and then the computer shuts down and restarts itself.

Just wondering if anyone has any ideas, i am running to recovery disk again now to see if my operating system can be located. Bout 3 weeks ago the hard drive that came with the computer crashed and we ordered a new one. It seems unlikely to me that the hard drive could have failed in such a short amount of time. I am running windows vista home premium 32 bit on my dell inspiron 1525. Edit 1217 csti am currently running the recovery disk and my screen is at system recovery options and it still appears that my os will not be listed.

Intellitype Pro 7.0 Issues - Error - Itype.exe - No Disk

I've recently done a clean install of windows 7 professional 64-bit on my pc, which is great, but i seem to be having a few issues with intellitype. When i restarted the computer i got the following error message: "itype.exe - no disk". As such i decided to remove intellitype and install it again, assuming it was a problem with improper installation. I removed it in add/remove programs then downloaded the windows install cleanup utility and removed it from there as well. I also went into program files and deleted the previous installation folders. Then i restarted. And yet, somehow, it claims intellitype is still installed it won't even let me run the installation files because "this software version is already installed on this system". What have i missed? Intellipoint is working perfectly thus far, but intellitype is proving to be almost more hassle than it's worth.

Easy Transfer Wizard Error - There Isn't Enough Disk Space Available

Easy transfer wizard error: there isn't enough disk space available to transfer your files and settings. The transfer file size is 40gb and i have a c: drive that says it has 280gb free and a d: drive that has 298gb free. I did a successful save of the easy transfer files to an external hard drive. Previously this computer was running vista for over 1 year with no problems.

After doing a custom install (i wanted to start with a clean install) of win7, everything is working. I installed windows/office updates and all of my other program files. When i run transfer wizard, it locates the "old computer" transfer file and reads it ok, showing the users and a transfer file size of 40. 1gb. When i click transfer button, i get the error: there isn't enough disk space available to transfer your files and settings. However, i have over 280gb free on my c: drive.

What disk is it looking at and what do i need to do to get around this. If i cannot get my files/settings back, i am going to be a very unhappy customer.

Dvd Drive Wont Read Disks - Error Please Insert Disk

I recently upgraded to windows 7. The drive worked fine as i used it to install the os. On start up windows wouldn't recognize the drive. Finding that this was a common problem on dual boot win7 x64 i tried the 3 standard fixes (f8 on start up, change letter of drive, upper and lower field reg edit) i briefly had the drive working but after about 10 minutes (while i was using the drive) it crashed and disappeared.

I went to the manufacturers site and downloaded the latest software for it, windows installed this and said it was working fine, i can now see the drive but it wont read anything, every time i put a disk in (any disk) it tells me the drive is empty when it isn't and spits it out. I have tried the windows troubleshoot program from the support site, it detects a problem but cant fix it.

The device manager shows the drive as installed and working. The lens shouldn't need cleaning as the drive is less than a month old. Please help, i've run out of ideas.system - dual boot xp / win 7 x64, xp on samsung 1tb hdd win 7 on maxtor 200gb hdd, 4gb ram, intel core 2 duo 3ghz, asus p5g43m motherboard, nvidia 8500gt gpu

A Kernel File Is Missing From The Disk

Windows 7 installed perfectly. I have 2 hard drives. One 500gb which is my primary where windows 7 is installed. And another 160gb which was my old primary hard drive that contained win xp 32 bit. The 160gb hard drive was partitioned into 2 partitions and i wanted to merge those two and make it to one partition. But i had to format both partitions.

I formatted the second partition easily but the partition which had the windows xp didn't allow me to format it. So i used a gpart bootable disc and then formatted the two partitions again. That's where the problem started. After i restarted my computer, "a kernel file is missing from the disk. Insert a system diskette and restart the system. " Appeared. And i can't boot to windows 7 no matter what i do. I'm really desperate to make use of my windows 7 pc again.

File Transfer From Mac In Target Disk Mode To Win 7 Via Firewire

i'm trying to transfer my music collection from a mac running osx onto my windows 7 laptop pc.

Have just forked out for a firewire cable and am trying to get that working.

Have switched the mac into "target disk mode" which makes it behave just like an external hard drive and plugged it into my laptop via firewire.

Windows 7 recognizes an "sbp2 compliant ieee 1394 device" has been plugged in.

However - i cannot browse the mac's files. Under devices and printers the h: drive appears but it is not browsable.

Have tried all three ieee 1394 drivers, and interestingly "1394 ohci compliant host controller (legacy)" driver is the only one where a "browse" tab appears in the devices and printers bit. However when i open the drop down, a h: appears, but it is greyed out and not clickable.

Any ideas?

Error - This File Does Not Have A Program Associated With It

Error box: "this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the set associations control panel". I am using desktop pc: hp windows vista hompe premium 32 bit. (Service pack 2) and my pc is updated with all the latest updates. My problem: when some one email me an internet link and i try to open the link in my internet mail, then this "set associations control panel" box appears on my screen.

I have tried everything to 'set this association' but i am unable to do it, because when i= click on start= open default programs= set your default program. I do not see my internet explorer in the default program box. Also, when i click on "default programs"= and open : " set program access and computer defaults"= my setting is checked on: "custom"= at: 'choose a default browser' the "use my current web browser" is checked. = 'choose a default email program' the "use my current email" is checked.

When i experienced this problem, i had windows explorer 7 on my vista (32 bit) and i downloaded internet explorer 8 and i thought that it would solve the problem. But it didn't. I still cannot open any internet website links that i receive in my email letters. (I do  not have any problems to open my internet explorer when i click on  my internet explorer link or to surf the web) my problem is only when someone send me email with a link to a webpage, on the internet (any webpage) then i cannot open the link from my windows mailbox.

Also when i open software like powerdirector 7 and when i want to create a 'menu' and i want to click on the "download more menu templates from directorzone" that will link me to the website on the internet the same "this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action.

Create an association in the set associations control panel" but again, internet explorer 7 (and now i downloaded ie 8) does not appear in my default program box that enables me to set an association. What can i do? Will the program "hijack this" help me in some way, to give you more information about this problem?(I do have firefox on my computer as well).
