What is the best software to recover deleted photos? 

by on June 30, 2010

Q: I have a Panasonic DMC-TZ5 camera with a 4GB SD card. There are some photos on this camera which were deleted almost 2 years ago which I really could do with getting my hands on. I have run several demo versions of retrieval software and each returns approx 300 files after scanning 20% of disc then no more. The interesting thing is the files recovered vary in date deleted from late 2008 (before the photos I need were deleted), early 2009 (around the same time as the ones I’m looking for) and more recent. Is there any chance my photos are still retrievable with better software? I don’t care how much I have to pay.

 
 

Are 3.5 inch floppy drives being phased out? 

by on June 30, 2010

Q: Are A drives being phased out? From my own experience 3.5″ floppy drives ARE very reliable and you can put small amounts of information on them and take your business work home to work on later. Larger floppies are not as reliable and very cumbersome to work with. Some people do not need 750 MB, when 1.4 will do.

2. Recently, a lot of people mysteriously can not find their A drives on their computer. Is Microsoft behind this?

How come my DVD drive stopped working? 

by on June 30, 2010

Q: I have a problem with a dvd drive. It’s an ATAPI DVD A DH2OA4H and of course it’s just past the warranty. About 6 weeks ago it decided it didn’t want to burn dual layers anymore. Now when I insert a dvd loaded with files,movies,games,etc it tells me they’re blank discs. I put the same movie disc in my dvd player (TV) and they run perfectly.

Sometimes when I reboot & there’s a disc in the drive, it won’t boot up until I remove the disc. I’ve taken the thing out & put it back in 3 times now. I updated the firmware for it. There’s no driver update available. I’ve taken this computer completely apart and put it back together again in the past, so I’m not “computer impaired”. But this thing is driving me nut. I need to access these dvds.
