Ide Hard Drive Connected Via Usb To Ide/sata Adapter

I have an old maxtor 9 1303d6 ide drive which is connected via a usb to ide/sata adapter and an active usb hub. The device worked fine under vista 32 ultimate. After doing a clean install of windows 7 ultimate and subsequent updates, the device is no longer seen in windows explorer. Device manager does see the hard drive, but the usb controller section of devman now shows an unknown device.

(I suspect that this is the usb to ide/sata adapter) the device is accessible using a hard disk recovery utility which can read the maxtor drive. I've tried to unininstall/reinstall and have moved the adapter from port to another on the hub. The device returns a code 43 error and i've tried the suggested kb updates with no luck.

Copy From Ata / Ide To Hdd With Ide To Usb Cable

I am trying to transfer files from an old hard drive (xp, ata/ide drive) to my win 7 machine (w7 pro, dell laptop). I only have the hdd from the xp machine, so i cannot go in and have the user share all files, etc. I do have an ide to usb cable and a means to hook up the drive to a power source. While i was able to copy some files (music, etc. ), The actual documents (drive:documents and settings user-name) are protected. I know the password but i am not given the opportunity to enter it.

When i click on the directory, it says: you don't currently have permission to access this folder. Click continue to permanently get access to this folder. So i click continue and the address bar takes forever to load but nothing comes up. No prompt for pwd, nothing. Any ideas?

My averatec 4200 laptop was just upgraded to windows 7. The dvd/cd drive worked fine when i installed windows 7, but for some reason it is no longer visible, anywhere.

Device manager - nothing
My computer - nothing
Hardware & sound troubleshooter - no device detected

I have tried everything i can think of. The dvd player hasn't been removed physically and reinstalled. Also, when i put in a dvd the player spins, but nothing is detected.

Ide Hard Drive (usb 2.0) Not Recognized At Computer Startup

Ide hard drive in external enclosure (usb 2. 0) not recognized by windows 7 at computer startup, but recognized if it is rebooted after windows 7 is done loading. I have a western digital 500gb pata (ide) hard drive in an enclosure. I leave the enclosure on at all times since it has a cooling fan.

However, if for whatever reason i need to reboot my system, windows 7 never recognizes this drive unless i turn off and on my enclosure. Once i reboot my enclosure, windows 7 recognizes the drive and tries to autoplay. I would like w7 to recognize my drive at startup so that i don't have to reboot my enclosure every time i reboot my computer. What can i do to fix this?

Applications Cannot Detect Dvd Drive

I am having trouble with my cdvd burner, as no applications on my computer recognize the drive at all. The hardware was working fine and was displayed under a list of burners in applications like cyberlink dvd, nero, windows iso burner, windows media player; now it is not displayed at all. I constantly get error messages that "no burners were detected" or to "connect a burner and restart the [windows media] player. " The drive does however appear in windows explorer and i am able to play dvd's from it (although i believe these are stored in a temporary cache).

I have already attempted to reinstall the driver from "device manager dvd/cd-rom drives hp dvd rw ad-7581s ata device" but this had failed. I have also run the online "playing and burning cds dvds and bds" troubleshooted from microsoft; it finds no problems, probably since it did not actually burn any data to test it. I've also downloaded the mats_run. Dvd.exe which supposedly fixes the problem automatically, this just downloaded massive amounts of data and went to the above troubleshooter. I am not able to burn dvds and no applications even detect i can.

Media Center Won't Detect Dvd In Drive

Windows media center won't detect a dvd in the dvd drive. My dvd drive does not show in the device manager. I tried windows mr. Fix it, no help. Before this problem began i recently had an aborted printer software installation. Then i upgraded from windows vista to windows 7 with a full install, no problems. The computer works much better but the dvd problem is the same. I downloaded and installed every ata driver from the dell website to the drivers folder. It didn't help.

Program Used In Win 7 To Open Zip Files

Tried several that were listed with in "open with", but didn't work, and when i browsed, i didn't know what to try. Can anyone help? I have checked out the control panel default settings, but i don't know which one to use to bring back the zip files, so i can extract them.

Trouble Using An Ide To Usb Cable

I just built a new computer. I used an ide to usb cable to upload legacy files to my new hard drive. That worked very well with an older hard drive; my computer saw a "usb device" and enabled drivers for it; i was able to upload the files. After hooking upa newer ide hard drive (the one from my most recent older computer), my computer shows it in control panel as a usb device, declares that "it is working properly";

I even get the "beep" when connecting the usb; but it doesn't show up in windows explorer like the first drive did. I know this one is working; even my computer is indicating that; it just doesn't show up as a drive in windows explorer so that i could pull files across from it. Any ideas?

Ide Channel - Dma/pio Status Check

I have been trying to check the dma/pio status of my system, but i couldn't find anything that mentions primary/secondary channel under "ide ata/atapi controllers" in device manager. From what i read in various forums, that is the way to do it, and also i noticed that a few people couldn't find the "primary/secondary channel" thingy as well. (But i couldn't find the solution to the issue)

My problem is that a couple usb ports (2 out of 4) that i normally used went slow when i transfer data to/from external hdd. Now i've been switching to the other 2 of the usb ports, and i could see the difference in transfer rate. This happened before with my xp system, but i could access the primary/secondary channel and switched them all back to dma, which is something i can't do now with my other system of vista. So now i would really like to check on that, and i need some help to do so.

My system:
Windows vista (up-to-date with all the windows update)
Intel core 2 duo p9600 2. 67ghz
4 gb ram
Nvidia geforce gtx 260 - 1 gb memory
Realtek/creative soundblaster

320 gb hdd (well, it's almost full, leaving about 20 gb of free space, but the problem i mentioned up there already happened when i still got 60 gb of free space like a couple months ago) it would be great if someone can help me enlighten my days here. I'm not a computer geek, but definitely not an illiterate as well.

Boot Failure On Moving From Native Ide To Raid

Moving from native ide to raid onchip sata type causes windows boot failure.

I installed windows 7 a few months ago and the install went rather well. I installed windows 7 on a dedicated sata hdd (c drive) and i have another sata drive that i keep my audio and video files on (d drive). Well. . . Today i decided to make a change.

I bought two new hdd's that i'd like to run in raid-1 that will replace my current d: drive. So, i crack open the manual for my motherboard (gigabyte ga-ma78gm-s2h) and it says i need to change the following in the bios:

Under the "integrated peripherals" menu set "onchip sata controller" to "enabled" (it was already enabled), secondly set "onchip sata type" to "raid" (it was "native ide"), lastly set "onchip sata port4/5 type" to "as sata type" (it was unset).

So, i've noticed that after i change "onchip sata type" to from "native ide" to "raid" and reboot my pc that windows doesn't load :-/  instead, it loads the "windows startup recovery manger" which runs for a while and then indicates that it cannot repair the problem. Going back into the bios and changing the  "onchip sata type" back to "native ide" allows me to successfully boot windows 7 again.

So, what gives?  I really don't understand what "native ide" means, or for that matter what "onchip sata port4/5 type" means in the bios, but i need to change these settings so that i can build my new raid-1. Can you tell me what's going on and how i might progress. . .

I think that maybe i need to install the sata controller driver from the motherboard manufacturer so that windows 7 can recognize the hard drive. . . But that's just a guess. If that's the case i guess the question becomes, how do i install the sata controller drivers after windows 7 has already been installed.

Error - Windows Needs Driver For Device [primary Ide Channel]

Upgrading to win 7 32-bit from xp sp2 on dell desktop, when trying to custom install of windows 7 32-bit to upgrade from xp, i get an error message at any partition of: "windows needs the driver for device [primary ide channel]" i don't understand what it is looking for or where i would find the proper driver. Should this be on my xp discs that came with the computer? Also, i get an error every time i try to run the compatibility advisor.

Cannot Locate Driver Files For Ide Controller During Upgrade Installation

I just bought the windows 7 home premium upgrade family pack which entitles me to upgrade all three of my computers, i was told. I have installed it successfully on my gateway desktop with vista home premium without a problem. I anticipate putting it into my l vista laptop.

I've tried to update another xp dell desktop, but keep running into a wall. The installation program asks me to choose a hard disk partition onto which i should install the update. One of the partitions is marked "reserved", so i choose the other. But i can go no further in the installation until i locate driver files for the ide controller.

I've tried finding such files on the windows xp disk, in cwindowssystem32drivers (since that is where device manager says they are) and on the windows 7 disk itself. So far, no matter what driver file location i have tried, i cannot get beyond that point in the installation. I realized that upgrading windows xp to windows 7 would mean losing my data and other installed programs and am willing to do so because i'd like all my computers on the same os and the use of 'homegroup'. Please advise on how to get beyond this point in the installation.

Standard Dual Channel Pci Ide Controller Driver

I am attempting to install the windows 7 rc onto my pc. The compatibility check is fine so i try the install. I choose custom because i want a fresh start, not an upgrade. When i select the hard drive (one drive, one partition), it says that "windows cannot be installed on disk 0 partition 1". The details say:

Windows cannot be installed to this disk. Windows needs the driver for device [standard dual channel pci ide controller]. Click 'load driver' and load the required device driver. I tried copying the drivers that xp pro is using with no luck. I copy them to a flash drive and then select them in the install ui. It then just goes back to the same message.

A2c Files Downloaded As Zip Files

If you go to alice.org and try to download one of their image files, ie8 changes the extension from a2c to zip making the file unusable unless the user manually changes the file extension.

http://alice.org/index.php?Page=gallery/amusement park/index

In our school network users are not allowed to change the file extension so that does not work. I found that the user when downloading has to change the file type to all files and change the file extension then. This is a bother to have to remember. When i tried with a different browser (chrome) the a2c file was recognized correctly. The computers in my school are laptops running windows xp. At home my desktop runs windows 7 and the problem is there as well. There was no problem with ie7.

Docx Files Downloading As Zip Files

I am having an issue with docx files turning into zip files when i try and download them in ie8. I have done alot of research on this problem and have looked into the 2 main solutions to this problem: 1) set security settings to "open file based on file content, not file extension" to disable  2) check the mime type table on the web server and make sure the office 2007 extensions are added.

The first step i tried and the file was still trying to open as a zip file. The second one i was only able to ask the vendor because the web server does not belong to me, but the vendor said they were able to get the same exact docx file to download as a docx file and everyone on their end was able to. I am able to save the zip file and rename the file extension to docx and open it, but sadly this will not be an acceptable answer.

I've tried adding registry settings to allow it to open with docx files as well with no success.
I am curious if anyone has any other suggestions for me?

Dual Boot 7 On Internal Hdd And Xp On External Usb Connected Ide

One of my laptops is an old acer aspire 5610. I want to have a dual boot system, 7 and xp, but 7 on the internal hdd and xp on the external usb-ide hdd, and by that, i mean a 100gb ide hard disk placed into a hdd enclosure, connected to the computer through usb. It also has separate power supply. The internal notebook's hdd is also ide.

I have read that installing windows on external usb-ide hard disk may be possible, depending on my mainboard configuration. I have already checked my configs and it *does* support usb-ide boot up to be first priority. Anyway, since testing it would be really time consuming (to try to dual boot, and if failed, roll back everything) i want to ask your opinions, do you think is that even possible?

Win7 Will Not Detect Second Monitor

I have a pc running windows 7 professional and windows vista ultimate with a dual boot setup. I have two screens pluged into an nvidia gts 8800 video card. The first screen is an hp 22" lcd which is plugged directly into one of the two dvi outputs on the video card. The second screen is a sharp 52", 1080p hdtv which is plugged into the second dvi port on the video card via an hdmi cable plugged into a hdmi to dvi adapter.

Both monitors work perfectly when i boot to windows vista but when i boot to windows 7 the 52" screen is not recognized at all. If i switch the cords plugged into the video card the 52" will work and the 22" will not be detected.

Cannot Detect Wireless Connection

I have a wireless modem set up and other laptops in my house can get a signal but my own personal laptop cannot. The wireless network list on my computer shows that the network is detected and that i am connected. Despite this, the signal comes in and out and tends to be very weak. The signal on the bottom right shows full bars so the signal is supposedly very good but somehow i cannot get on the internet. I have tried multiple websites and the message that internet explorer cannot open the web page comes up.

Win7 Does Not Detect External Monitor

I have just upgraded to win7 home premium 32 on a sony vaio laptop. Previously i was running vista business. I was happily using an lg1512s monitor plugged through the vaio docking station.
Post the win 7 install, my laptop does not recognize the external monitor. I have gone on to the control panel all control panel items-display-screen resolution and the multiple screen dialogue does not appear.
 
I have with no success:

· Clicked detect in the control panelall control panel itemsdisplayscreen resolution
· Clicked the f7 monitor on/off button.
· Plugged the monitor directly into the vaio (i.e. Not through the docking station)
· Used windows-x and tried to use the mobility centre to connect the external monitor.

Meanwhile i have plugged the monitor into another laptop i use that is running vista home and the monitor lights up so i know the monitor and the cables are ok. The problem is that win7 is not seeing the external monitor. Any ideas?

Macbook Does Not Detect Wireless Network

Window 7 installed on macbook - does not detect any wireless network/connection at all only on windows os system side. I have installed windows 7 on my new macbook, so my macbook operate both on apple macos and windows os. However, my windows os side does not detect any wireless network at all. When i switch back to apple os, there is no problem connecting to the internet and there is no connection problem at all.

But for some reason, my windows 7 does not detect or show any available wireless network. I use linksys wrt-110, and i don't think it is my router problem because it works perfectly on apple macos system. Does anybody have any solution? I am not very tech-savvy, i.e. , I need step-by-step explanation as to how to tackle this.

System Wont Detect Cds

After performing a clean install of windows 7 pro my computer wont detect music cds. It will play movies with its corresponding audio. But it wont play regular music cds originals, burned or from any file extension of music cds it wont just detect that the cd is loaded in the cd rom tray.

I already tried  windows trouble shouting and nothing. Checked file extension association and everything appears to be in order. I also ran drm. Also perform cd, dvd region check. Lastly i also perform a system check from the windows command prompt and found nothing either.

Anybody have any other ideas?
