So you attach an external hard-drive, thumb drive, memory card or a player to you Windows PC, and an error pops out.
There is problem with this drive. Scan the drive and fix it now.
I suddenly got a need for a 3.5″ external drive box, preferably USB 3.0.
All iPads within the same product line share the same platform. That means, that means you get the same performance regardless of the built-in storage flash memory capacity and the 3G/4G modem.
But what exactly are you missing by investing in the cheapest iPad 3 16Gb without 3G/LTE modem?
Many manufacturers finally developed working solutions for automatic driver updates distribution for their gadgets. For instance, Samsung recently released a new driver for USB host controller in their notebooks.
Too bad if you haven’t disconnected your USB HDD while the driver update took place, your external drive most probably has lost all its files.
Sometimes when you insert a flash memory card or plug in a USB thumb drive, Windows installs drivers for it and that’s it. The device never appears in My Computer as a drive.
Sometimes Windows 7 installer pops out the following error:
A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing. If you have a driver floppy disk, CD, DVD, or USB flash drive, please insert now.
But the computer doesn’t even have a CD/DVD drive
Most of console users know that Microsoft gracefully allowed their customers to use USB drives as Xbox360-enabled storage.
However, if your old good NES or Sega had their limitations justified by inferior hardware, modern consoles are so powerful that marketing guys have to impose artificial limitations to force consumers buy proprietary products. That is official Xbox360 hardrives, which cost 3 times more than the very same Hitachi/WD drives they are rebranded from. On non-proprietary USB drives, only 16gb of space can be used by the console, the rest is wasted.
What to do if you happen to get a much bigger drive and want to use its full capacity? Well, here is how.
