Nikon D60 and Sandisk 4GB Ultra II by eucalypta
Vista Ultimate does not seem to recognize and/or accept my new Nikon D60 camera. Thus I can't transfer the pictures from the camera to the PC. (Connection software installed, card changed to a 2GB, doesn't work either - but works with my coolpix cam) I use a Sandisk SD card - 4GB ultra II, with a Micromate usb adapter - which is not recognised neither in the camera nor in the adapter nor in...

Windows Mobile Device Center work around by exponentpower
Yup, thats what we need to find, a work around. Get rid of WMDC and use stand alone drivers to view and access our PDA's (and other devices). If you want details, please see this thread... 'Unable to connect pda to Vista - Vista Forums' (http://www.vistax64.com/showthread.php?p=771377#post771377) HOWEVER...I am trying to see if, on a more global level, there is a work around to simply NOT...

Reporting a Smart Event by Rancho
I use HP Pavilion Elite running Vista Home Premium which is less than a year old. Without making any recent changes to my system I am getting a message as follows, "A hard drive is reporting a smart event". and this message, "ST3360...... Hard disk failure is imminent. Please backup your hard disk and have it replaced." I did diagnostic test which resulted in status being ok on the ST33360........

Hardware cause of BSoD by PCMentor
I had a tap plug for HDD fan plugged into HDD. I believe it was causing intermittent power to the HDD. I switched it to the CD Drive. Have not yet had BSoD return. I noticed the HDD would not boot immediately also.

Microsoft Sidewinder Precision 2 by J.Peinado
I'm just surprised that my Microsoft Sidewinder Precision 2 joystick seems not to work in Vista x64. I plug the USB and nothing happens, it doesn't detect it. Is any way to have it to work? In Win98 and Win XP I had no problem with it. I didn't even need a driver, was automatically detected. Now, it's like plugging a dead pile of junk.

CD/DVD Drive Error by Baby Aku
I have recently ran a game on my E: drive (CD/DVD Drive). Then came the problems. First, the CD/DVD tray won't open, both when done automatically or manually. Second, It won't read any more CD/DVD. However, the tray can be ejected by using the famous "paper clip method". The error (dialogue box) that pops up when I try to automatically eject the tray showed: "'DVD RW DRIVE (E:)' IS CURRENTLY IN...

Vista cannot start with more than 2GB ram on an Intel DQ965GF motherboard by Andrea Brajuka
It certainly sounds strange, since I'm running another Vista on a 8GB workstation, but on my Intel DQ965GF motherboard neither Vista x32 nor Vista x64 can start or be installed if I add more than 2GB of DDR-2 memory. On that system I'm running a dual-boot with WinXP x64 and Vista x64, and I've been able to use both for a few months with 2GB in Dual Channel mode. But as soon as I've added...

Why does Vista always want to format a blank CD or DVD disk? by Gordon
Vista Home Premium. I have no third-party CD/DVD recording software on the machine. Every time I go to burn files to a CDR, CDRW, DVD R or DVDRW using the Windows burning function it wants to format the disk. If I cancel the format, then the burn is not proceeded with. XP does not do this. How do I stop this infuriating behaviour?

Lost space on 300 gig external drive by rq
I have a 300 gig external drive that I use for backups. When I list the folders on the drive and their size, I come up with just under a 100 gigs of used space. The drive shows that I have approx 23 gigs of space left before the drive is full. So here is the question, which one of you guys has my other 170 gigs of storage space. ;-) Thanks for any help.

Cannot safely remove hardware even when no programs are running by Buzz
I have a recurring problem with USB flash drives and my SD card slot in Vista. When I click "safely remove hardware" I get a "problem removing device" notification along with a message to shut down any programs that might be using the device. However, this happens even when no programs are running. I have tried shutting down and restarting Explorer in Task Manager. This used to work...
