Devices attached to computer (Tech Vanity)
June 23, 2008

Posted on 06/23/2008 11:27:00 AM PDT by processing please hold

I'm trying to download a picture of an M-14 I got for my birthday to my hard drive and I keep getting the message: "We've detected several devices attached to your computer, please select the device you want to get images from."


TOPICS: Chit/Chat
KEYWORDS: getamac
When I go to get images from my camera it shows E:\. That's the only option that is clickable on the screen. Please help if you can.

Shoot the computer with your M-14 and get a new one.

Just kidding.......

Did you try to unplug the USB port that the camera is attached to, re attach it and let the computer find it?

It's sweet. Hubby took off from work early and brought it home to me.

Did you try to unplug the USB port that the camera is attached to, re attach it and let the computer find it?

I'll try that now, thanks.

When I did that, this came up : Destinations: 'The feature you are trying to use is an CD-ROM or other removeable disk that is not available.' And beneath that it says: insert the 'Destinations' disk and click ok.

Everything must have gotten changed around when I was making photo montage.

First of all, make sure you’re logged in

I’ve downloaded literally hundreds of pictures from my memory card that I insert into my (here comes my tech language) little white HP contraption that always immediately posted the pictures to my computer.

This is Windows XP, correct? If so, right click the “My Computer” and choose Manage.

Click on Disc Management. You device may be in there, but has a ‘drive letter’ conflict. You can change the drive letter here, and you’ll be able to access the usb device.

It’s XP. I clicked on ‘my computer’ but it doesn’t have anything that says manage. My Kodak camera is set on E:\.

Well, if all else fails, I guess you could try to do a system recovery to a point when it worked.

I’ll try that. If it doesn’t work I’ll go whole hog and do a system restore.

You're missing a connector. You need one of these:

Once plugged in and Windows finds the device, just be careful where it's aimed, ok? Happy to help. :)

Ahh the memories. Except for the different flash suppressor it is a reminder of the reliable M-14 I had through most if my Marine enlistment. I do wish I had kept the walnut stock that I had polished to a high shine. I sold the stock to a barracks mate for $25 (a nice piece of change in 73) and turned it in with a standard plastic stock.

Ok. That was a bad move. A very, very bad move, the system restore. It got rid of half my programs I had to do an ‘undo’ to get everything back.

I have a whole drawer full of stuff that I don’t even know what it’s for. I think I even have one of those. I’ll be very careful with my aiming.

However this works out, CONGRATS on the M-14! You are fortunate, and “hubby” is a good man!

That's good, because you never know when 'Windows Update' might decide to update your house with a clip full of fresh M-14 ammo, LOL

God must truly love me when it comes to computers. I always mess everything up by poking and clicking where I shouldn’t and he comes along and fixes my problems the same way. I couldn’t tell you how I fixed it if my life depended on it.

Four clips is enough for now. I'm not about to ask for more - I'll let some time go by first. LOL

Reading your thread brings this song to mind:

Well I met her out at Murphy's restaurant

She said she was fresh from the farm

And I remember thinkin' for a country girl

That she went pretty well armed

We sat there talkin' by the lobster tank

I ordered her a slow gin fizz

And when them chicken fried steaks arrived

She said I like living like this

And I mean this with respect.

I like that. Sounds like good livin' to me. ;)

FWIW, We're off to the steak house, T-bone, tonight, chicken fried steak for another time. Good livin', my cup runneth over.

And I mean this with respect.

And I took it that way.
