General Computer Support / Hard Drives
« on: August 06, 2018, 12:30:55 am »
Hey guys I just bought a ASUS ROG Desktop. It came with a 250 GIG SSD and a Seagate 1tb SATA Drive. All work great. I bought a 2nd 4 TB Seagate SATA Drive and hooked it up to the 2nd sata channel and neither drives show up or sometimes only one of the sata drives show up in file manager or disk management. If I hook them up by themselves they work fine. I have contacted ASUS and they told me to update the bios to version 305 which I did. Still does not work and trying to get a straight anser from them is impossible. In the bios the drives show up when only 1 sata is hooked up, but does not when both sata are hooked up. Any ideas guys ?

Hi guys have Internet Explorer, Explorer, Crashing on me and Windows Live Mail Crashes/Freezes when i send mail (i can receive mail no problem) Ran SFC and it found corrupt files but cannot fix them, says to read the cbs.log file but the sucker is huge and i cannot understand it. Have run the tweaking program. Still not good. I just download the latest version and am trying it again. Any suggestions?

General Computer Support / Cannot see Port error in Bitcomet
« on: November 19, 2017, 09:16:17 pm »
Hi guys, got a problem, I installed 3 different VPN free softwares and I could not get any of them to work so I un-installed them and ran ccleaner to remove what was not removed and deleted references to the programs in the registry. Now when I load bitcomet it says "Can not listen to port 25615, (25615UDP)" I am dual booting with windows 10 so I booted into 10 and installed bitcomet and it works fine. So the vpn software has screwed up settings for bitcomet, I checked windows firewall and it is being allowed to send data out. Am stumped.(:

General Computer Support / RAID
« on: April 13, 2017, 10:08:18 pm »
Hey guys i just bought from ebay a couple of RAID Cages with drives. They are a SANS DIGITAL TowerRAID TR4M eSATA 4-drive tower JBOD/RAID w/Four 2TB Hard Drives (Setup up using JBOD), this connects through a ESATA card and a OWC MERCURY ELITE-AL PRO Qx2 - 8TB OF STORAGE (4 2 tb drives)(Setup up as RAID 5), this connects via USB. When i am fully booted up my mouse is acting jerky and i sometimes get the blue screen of death in Windows 7 Home Premium. Can these 2 cages conflict with each other. Also the Sans sometimes locks up when i try to run a chkdsk on drives 2 3 4. I copied over 1tb of files to drive 1 with no problems. I have taken the drives out and connected them to my docking station and all loaded fine and checked out fine using chkdsk. Any suggestions ????

General Computer Support / WDTV (Western Digital TV Box)
« on: October 06, 2016, 11:04:18 pm »
Anyone have one of these? When I first got it I could access all usb drives connected to it from all my pc's and imac. Now only the imac can see the usb drives and copy from them. I cannot write to them from the imac (drives are NTFS). On the pc's now I only see a WDTV listed under networks and when I click on it it loads the WDTV web page to logon and edit the settings for the drive. Before there was also another wdtv and when I clicked on it it expanded to show all drives connected to the WDTV. Am confused as to why all of a sudden this has happened. All the usb drives have sharing set via windows 7.

Hi shane working on a friends computer and it will not do the updates. I have ran your tweaking program and Microsoft fixit and numerious other programs to no avail. How do I fix this? I am trying system restore right now and that is taking forever. Also he has a SATA Seagate Barracuda LP hard drive and it is making a beed noise on power up, am thinking the armature is stuck and I need to take the drive apart and set the arm back to the home position. Any suggestions? Also where do I go to download Windows OEM disk to do a system repair.

Hi guys, does anyone own a Boxie and if so have you installed the Boxie+ hack, have you had any problems with it. Have you also tried the XMBC program and do you have to leave either of these programs on the usb stick when you turn boxie on. The Boxie+ one installs. Also having problems on getting the boxie to recoginize some of the moves and tv shows, any suggestions would be helpful :)

Hey guys is there a program out there that works and you do not have to be a rocket scientist to figure it out to get the poster artwork and metadate for the movies that the boxie does not correctly identify. I have played around with Plex server and Meta server. I just want to add this info to my movie and tv show data base so my boxie will read it.

Does windows 7 keep a log or history or your file directories and if so how do i access it. I need to see the file tree on my 5 tb drive that died. AM hoping that windows 7 saves it on the c drive.

General Computer Support / Hard Drive Died

Hey guys, i bought a 5 terabyte drive (seagate) back in october, worked great until now. Was transfer 250 gigs of files to it. Let it run over night and when i checked it the next day it was still working fine. Checked back a few hours later and i have a duplicate file message so i told it to overwrite the file. After 30 minutes of waiting it was still showing the busy icon. Computer was locked up could not do anything, not even ctrl alt delta would work. I had no choice but to power off via power button on computer. Now the drive light is flossing fast and i cannot see the drive on any on my computer (both pc and MAC). Seagate tells me it is an internal power problem, yet i can see the drive listed in sea tools but i cannot run any of the tests, that all fail. Is the a way of getting into this drive. I have tried different USB cable with no luck. I want to get the data back. That is 2 seagate drives that have bit the dust on me.:(

Hi guys, Rick back again with another problem, not as bad as the last one but serious. My seagate 1 TB drive is maligning clicking noises which tells me it is crapping out. Now the drive tells me it is in RAW format and i cannot get the files from the drive. What program can i use to rescue the files and dump them to another drive? It show the directories in file manager but when i try to change into my movies dir it says I/o error.
