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?

Slow File Transfers Between Sata, Usb, Firewire

While testing out this new install i am getting very strange drive speed results. A 2gb test directory full of photos will copy in a blazing 10 seconds. Yes, that is cool i say to myself. So i delete the target and try again, where it then takes a minute or maybe even three. Then when it finally gets transferred and i delete the directory, even the delete takes forever.

Then if i try to do other stuff the system will eventually lock up, and about 2 minutes later it will unfreeze and deliver the flood of folders i tried to open in the interim. Looking at task manager i see an enormous number of explorer.exe page fault delta when the slowdown occurs.

It does not seem to matter what type of drive it is. I have checked and everything is current for drivers and updates. Also note, this has nothing to do with the networking (all local drives). I haven't any clues save for perhaps a memory timing problem, but i think i bought some decent memory, and there is plenty of it. The task manager shows very low memory use and no swapping problem. Nothing else is running during my tests. Any ideas?

My system is: win7 on an i7 2. 8 ghz processor on a p6t se asus mb with 12gb corsair ddr3 memory (6x2). 4 identical wd velocirator hard drives set to sata ide emulation.nvidia gtx 470 vid card. Everything set to "auto" (no overclocking/overvoltage). Thanks in advance for any ideas :)

Install Problem With Low Disk Space On Target Drive

I have tried to install an add on to a game segplay and eventually get a message "not enough disk space on target drive. " I have 177g free space on my hard drive, my temp and download areas are free of files. I cannot figure out what the program is. I am thinking some incompatibility between segplay games and vista home premium. Anyone have a suggestion?

Shortcut - Right Click - Properties - Target - Can't Type Into Target

I just purchased a dell netbook, with windows 7. I am installing a game called guild wars. As most fans of the game know, you can download the entire game client and updates, by adding the command -imag at the end of the "target" under properties after right clicking on the guild wars shortcut. I was successful on installing the game, but i can't type in the "target" box in order to type -imag at the end of the directory (c://. -Imag) if anyone can help me with this problem i would really appreciate it. Once again the question is, how do i make it so i can actually type in the "target" box?

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.

Enough Free Disk Space Issue Using Easy Transfer

Why does easy transfer say i don't have enough disk space when i'm trying to transfer 141gb to a hard drive with 585gb of available space? I just purchased an hp pavilion 6347c with windows 7 home premium. I'm trying to transfer data from my old computer with windows xp to the new machine.

Easy transfer works to the point where the actual transfer should be made, at which point i get an error message saying there is not enough disk space. I've called hp tech support, and they told me i'd have to pay for support as this is a "third party" issue.

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.

Obex File Transfer

I have windows 7 home premium 32bit. From time to time i am using usb bluetooth dongle(chipset broadcom 2045), which is without a problem detected and all drivers are installed properly by windows. Only problem which i have is with obex file transfer. I can send to my paired phone(nokia 6300) any amount of files in terms of quantity or size, as far as there is enough space on phone memory card, but not conrarywise - from phone to pc.

Always when i send something from phone to pc, what si larger than cca 300-310kb transfer fails. Has somebody an idea if this is nokia problem or problem in microsoft bluetooth stack? Why is it working only one way, from pc to phonelso is there some way how to browse paired phone through windows explorer the same way like with 3rd party software from widcomm or bluesoleil?

File Transfer To External Hdd

External hdd: adata nh-92 500gb
Computer: asus g51jx

I'm trying to move an iso file from my desktop to the aforementioned external hdd, but when i drag the file over to the hdd, i get a window that pops up saying that "the file is too large for the destination file system. " Is the problem really because the file is too big (7. 86 gb), or is there something that might be wrong with my computer? I think it may be because of my laptop because i got this file from my friend's external hdd, so if he could copy it on to his external, why can't i?

Extract From Easy Transfer File

I upgraded from vista home premium  to windows 7 professional and used the easy transfer to move my files and settings which were saved on an external hard drive.

I made the conversion and everything worked fine. Unfortunately, after the conversion one of my files got corrupted(due to my own mistake) and is no longer available. The file "saveddata. Mig" is still available on my external drive which prompts the following questions: is it possible to extract a specific file from "saveddata. Mig"? If so, how would i go about it?

Easy File Transfer Problems

I was converting from windows xp to windows 7. I ran 'easy file tranfer' and copied my 'setting' to a usb stick. They were saved as a folder with the name 'usmt2img. Dat'. This apparently contained no files, but has a size of 353, 724. I ran 'easy file transfer' and copied settings and files to and external hard drive. These were save as a folder usmt2. Unc containing the files  'img00001. Dat', ' img00002. Dat', 'img00003'. Dat and another file of 1kb called 'status'.
 
I installed windows 7 and ran 'easy file tranfer' to restore my settings. It ran until i indicated where the files were located on the usb stick, and the files did not appear in the open folder.
I then tried with the external hard drive, and again in ran  until i indicated where the files were located on the drive, and the files did not appear in the open folder. This time when i typed the file names into the space provided, easy file tranfer' started to run, then said  'cannot open files'.
 
How can i recover my settings? (I have the 'my documents' files backed up at another location, but i need my old e-mails and address book particularly. )

Windows Easy Transfer Can Not Open File

I used vista 32bit windows easy tranfer version 6. 1 to save files to a usb disk drive. I set an encryption password. Transfer completed successfully. 17 mig files created (. Mig, . Mig01-. Mig16).

I tried to recover the files on a new system (64bit windows 7 home premium and again with 32bit windows 7 professional). Wet accepted password, but both attempts fail with the same message "windows easy transfer can not open file".

Old system: 32bit vista home premium service pack 2
New system: either 64bit windows 7 home premium or 32bit windows 7 professional (which ever works with wet).

File Size Limitations And Transfer Problem

I've recently upgraded from vista 64 to windows 7 64, but have encountered a very annoying problem. I can't seem to edit files (mainly . Wav) without the error message saying i don't have enough memory. This is not true seeing as i got 2x 1 tb hard drives and 8 gb of ram. Also transferring files to, for example, my iphone will only work if the number of files is lower than 200 mb in total. The transfer usually stops and i get a time-out message on my phone. As i said very annoying. Has anyone encountered this as well?

Undo Windows Easy File Transfer

Somebody asked about reversing windows easy file transfer and the answer was simply to delete the files that were transferred. My question is - when the transfer was made did any of the files make changes to the system. How about using restore instead?

Usb External Hdd File Transfer Stops

I have a dell xps m1530 laptop. I upgraded to w7 pro 32 bit via a clean install from vista home premium. My external usb  hdd (freecom toughdrive pro 320gb) used to work fine, and still does on other computers, including xp, vista and another w7 desktop machine. On my upgraded laptopi get problems transferring large files from the usb drive, the drive light goes out (but i can still hear it whirring), the copy operation hangs, and i can no longer browse through the drive in windows explorer. Bizarrely the drive still shows up in "safely remove hardware".

It also shows up still in device manager, with no warning symbols next to any device. I've tried seeing if the drive shows up in disk management, but that won't start unless i unplug it. My problem seems similar to the well documented problem with external drives on w7 64bit and nvidia chipsets with over 4gb ram. That issue has a hotfix. My system is 32bit though. I tried the hotfix just in case but to no effect. Any ideas microsoft?

Easy File Transfer Won't Open Files

I am upgrading from xp (32 bit) to win 7 home premium (64 bit). I downloaded easy file transfer for xp 32 bit and put my files on a jump drive. I installed win 7 and ran easy file transfer and tried to get the files off the jump drive and it tells me easy transfer can't open the files. Also, i have a clone of my win xp on another hd can i use win 7 easy file transfer to get the files directly off that hd? If so, how? I don't see an option for that in easy transfer.

Pc Only Starts Up In Safe Mode After Running Scan Disk

I was running scan disk to attempt to speed up my son's computer. I also got rid of some files that he had on it. The files were for his old apple ipod and he doesn't use it anymore. So i figured it couldn't hurt anything. The file were "safari", "bonjour", and some other apple files. I also removed a program for my old samsung camera. I tried to do a system restore from before i removed these programs/drivers. But that didn't work even though it said the restore was successful. I am at a lose of what to do and school is just starting. I hope he don't need it soon. Can anyone help? Thank you for you time and any help you may be able to give.

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.

Mini Dv Firewire Capture

I recently installed windows 7 rc on my computer; upgraded from windows7 build 6800 and suddenly i cannot capture video from my mini dv camerea (panasonic_ professional dvx-100b). I had no such trouble on windows 7 6800, but now no such luck. On 7rc i hear the magic noise but nothing ever pops up and asks me if i'd like to capture.

I am using sony vegas 8 or 9 to capture the video, though i also tried to use movie maker, but also to no avail. I did a clean install and still nothing. The video camera is even recognized in the device manager, but does not work. Please help if you have a solution or an idea.

Usb / Firewire Combo Card Does Not Recognize External Hd

I recently installed a new usb/firewire combo pci card on a i7-920 win7 professional based computer. The usb part works fine but the firewire does not recognize external hds. However external hds were connected to the firewire port on the motherboard, it worked fine. Changed firewire driver to legacy driver that came with win7 pro did not solve the problem. Moving the card to a different pci slot does not solve the problem.

Now under the device manager, the driver is "working properly" but the card just won't recognize the external devices. Is this a driver problem (i.e. Need a newer or win7 pro specific driver)?  If it is, where to get it?  Have searched internet and numerous websites (including card manufactuer) but cannot find an answer. Is this card defective?

Can Xp Mode Base Vhd File Be Moved?

I told it to put the vhd drives on the physical "d" drive where there is more space. I had no idea this new-fangled windows virtual pc would ignore my clear instructions and waste space on my system drive, dropping files and folders from the virtual stuff on c: instead of d where i told it. I guess i'll do a system restore, put the old file in the c:program files folder from the last backup and then go through my usersdarryl folders (all of them) to find stuff the test install i just did got dropped on my physical system. Maybe i'll see if i can run virtual pc 2007 or sun's virtual box or something that listens to clear instructions!

Directory Paths And File Access In Xp Mode

Hi all, i recently became a windows 7 user when i bought a new laptop. For many years i've been using an old 16-bit program (foxpro for windows 2. 6) under various versions of windows, up through and including xp3. It didn't work under win 7, so i purchased the online upgrade from home premium to professional so that i could download windows xp mode. This all worked well, and i'm able to use the old foxpro when running a virtual session of xp in a window. The only issue i'm having now is that i'd like to create an icon for the program on my windows 7 desktop so that i can run the program without the intermediary step of starting an xp mode virtual session. It appears from the documentation that this should be possible. But i'm having trouble with the directory paths under xp vs. Win 7. In windows xp, i store foxpro's program files in c:program filesfpw26, and i store my scripts and data files in c:documents and applications[me]my documents xyz. In xp, i created a shortcut to the executable, and under properties created a "start in:" path with the path above to the script and data files. I copied the shortcut icon over to the windows 7 desktop, but the "start in:" reference did not make it across.

So i entered this pathname again in properties for the shortcut on the windows 7 desktop. Unfortunately it isn't recognizing this; i can start foxpro from the windows 7 desktop, but it acts as if it's in the directory of its executable files under c:program files. I wondered if there was a way to describe a windows 7 version of the pathname for the script/data file directory, but i couldn't figure out how to do this. So i have three questions:1) how can i pass a pathname in the "start in:" field under properties for the foxpro shortcut icon on the windows 7 desktop to make it recognize my directory of scripts/data files that exists under my documents in the virtual version of xp?2) if i can succeed with this, is there a way to access the directory of scripts/data files from windows 7 (for example, to edit them with a text editor) without needing to start an xp virtual session? In other words, are the xp directories visible from win 7?3) alternatively, would it be feasible for me to put my directory of scripts/data files under my documents in the windows 7 directory tree, and is it possible to pass foxpro a parameter to tell it to "start in" (and act on) that directory?

Cannot Find 3rd File To Install Xp Compatibility Mode

With windows 7 in a brand-new pc, i went to http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx after confirming that my pc will handle the software. One must enter their os (windows 7 64-bit ultimate) and language (english), after which 3 blue boxes appear. The user is told to download file#1, install it, then file#2 and then file#3. Everything works fine with #1 and #2, but the blue box for #3 on that page is not a hyperlink (as are #1 and #2). It says, "**enables windows xp mode for pcs" - and i suppose that it would, if it was a live url. It appears that someone has updated the webpage and inadvertently messed up the hyperlink. Either that, or i'm a dummy. Maybe both.
Any help appreciated.
