Jul 30, 2014
Problem: Cant transfer files from PC or Android tablet to tablet.
Version(S): PC: Win8.1 64-bit Android tablet: android 4.4 other tablet: Win8.1 not sure bit version
Detail: Need to transfer file from CD to Win8.1 tablet. Steps tried:
-extracted files from CD to .SFX archive and added a copy to PC and Tablet (android4.4)
-tried over cloud, cloud upload failed and retried multiple times for same result.
-tried direct file transfer from pc to WinTablet and from AndroidTablet to WinTablet with the appropriate cables, both times neither device detected the other
-tried file transfer over homegroup, gave error message about "access denied" even after giving access on both devices
-tried email but .sfx was too large (almost 800MB)
-tried over Bluetooth on both devices (PC and android) again transfer failed
-tried over WiFi connection, failed access denied
-tried over Ethernet cable but only PC has Ethernet port.
Tonight when I plugged my LG G-Pad into my laptop it made the usual audible tone but is now no longer visible. Worked fine about 2 days ago, now nothing.. Interestingly enough it works fine on my desktop (Win 7) and my office computer (also Win 7), but all the sudden it doesn't appear on my laptop where I need it most. I considered doing a restore, but it appears I'll have to re-install 8.1 again, and I'm not too keen on that as it was a nightmare in itself
I recently bought a new Windows 8.1 computer to replace my old 8.1 laptop. I was going to use Windows Easy Transfer to transfer all my settings and files, but I accidentally (on my old computer) clicked "This is my new computer" and I cannot change it to old.
I am using a Surface 2 tablet which is RT 8.1. Is there a program to clean up/delete temporary files. I have tried Ccleaner but it says this program will not work on this machine. I have tried to find a way to make it work but could not find a solution. That's why I am wondering if there is a program "somewhere" to clean up those temp files.
I must have made an error upon set-up. Every time I connect a smart phone or tablet, a "windows explorer" window opens, showing the files on the device. I'd like to have the system just do nothing when I connect, but I can not seem to find out how to manage that option. I imagine it would be easy, if I could find it.
I plan to buy a new computer using win 8.1 I currently have a computer using win 8.1 I want to transfer my files from the old one to the new one. Win 8.1 does not have easy transfer so how can I do this. Is there a way to use an external hard drive?
It appears the transfer files and settings is missing from windows 8.1, I don't use the so called Cloud, so I would guess the only way to move my Windows 8.1 installation to a new hard drive is to use the backup image app, or use a backup program. How to make it easier to move to a new hard drive in case of failure.
I need to copy data from a drive which I removed from an old PC (was running XP but no longer bootable, all the data is still there and working though) to Windows 8, however it doesn't work as I expected at all as you need to go through all those permission hassles and in this case there are too many files to bother, and I can't use that Windows Easy Transfer as the old PC is not working, any other ways to go about this?
I was working on a windows 8 laptop and wanted to transfer user files to the new laptop. I pulled the drive from the Windows 8 laptop, plugged it into an open sata port on my windows 7 bench machine (which already contained the files to be transferred) and booted without problem. I assigned the windows 8 drive a letter and opened the drive. All the files of the Windows 8 drive were visible. I opened a directory off of the root, created a new directory and copied the files. No problem. I opened some of the image files and all looked well. I shut down the win7 box, pulled the Windows 8 drive and put it back in the laptop and it booted, no problem.
When I went looking for the files, they were no where to be found! Win 8 showed the "used space" as if the copy never happened. Thinking I made an error on the copy I shut down the Windows 8 laptop and pulled the drive, plugged it back into the win7 box and booted. The win7 boot detected "file corruption" on the volume in question and did some "orphan" recovering and a bunch of other stuff. When it finally finished and booted all the files copied were in a "found.000" directory. I took ownership and repeated. Funny thing is that while the win7 showed the drive with the expected 40gb of data taking up space, the windows 8 showed the "used space" as if the data wasnt even there? why as I try to copy the files from the win7 drive converted to a usb external directly into the Windows 8 laptop.
I don't understand this at all. Why did they take away this VERY important function? You can no longer drag and drop pictures to and from dropbox to a folder on your computer! This is so aggravating that I feel like throwing my computer in the trash. I cannot use skydrive. It won't link to it and it won't let me transfer files to another location on my computer.
There is a "pictures" folder but it refuses to let me transfer files from skydrive or dropbox! This is extremely aggravating when trying to backup four years of vacation pictures. It also disables the drag and drop function from ANYTHING else: CDs, USB drives, hard drives. I'm so angry now that I might consider buying a used computer just to transfer the files.
I used the Easy Windows Backup on my old machine (running vista), saved to an external hard drive. Installed the latest 8.1.1 on a new machine and tried to use the Easy Windows Backup to restore my stuff, but I get this message "Windows Easy Transfer can't transfer files from Windows Vista or Windows XP".
Is there any way I can recover my files from the Easy Transfer Backup?
I have been trying (without success) to transfer my e-mail folder files from my old computer (Dell Inspiron 530 using Vista) to my new computer (Sony Vaio using Windows 8). The transfer is from Windows Mail to Windows Live Mail.
The recommended method on the old machine using a flash drive is as follows: File-Export-Messages-Microsoft Windows Mail-Select Folder (K:New Folder)-Next-Select Folders-Next. At this point the folders should transfer to the flash drive. Unfortunately I keep getting and error message that says that "Export did complete successfully and Windows Mail was unable to export all messages" - (in fact only a few messages were transferred) The message then goes onto say that " your disk may not have enough space (it is a 32GB flash drive and has more than enough space!) or that some messages may be corrupted. Run disk clean-up or delete some files and try again". I have done this without improvement. Another approach that was recommended was to find all of the e-mail files (.eml files) and copy them to the new computer via the flash drive. I can copy them to the flash drive without problem but am not sure how/where to import them into the C: drive of the new computer.
I am totally unhappy about windows 8. Many good features from earlier windows are missing such as -
1) You can not pin "Calculator" to the task bar. In earlier versions you could open the calculator, over other windows. 2) While scrolling to folders / files in Explorer or any software, the screen jumps abruptly to up or down. 3) While transferring Images from camera. You can not select part images for transfer along with renaming. This feature was available in Windows XP.
About half the time I use Windows Easy Transfer, it fails to transfer the setting in Outlook, which is a huge hassle... I back everything up, but I have problems with Outlook. I do the same thing every time and sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't... very frustrating! No error messages or anything like that, it just doesn't put the account settings and folders back in Outlook...
I have two laptops made by the same manufacturer and same year, but one is a dual core laptop with an SSD harddrive and the other is a quad core laptop with a regular hard drive. Both laptops run Windows 8.
I would like to transfer my programs and files from the dual core to the quad core. However, obviously the quad core has different hardware.
I am wondering if I simply remove the SSD from the dual core and put it into the quad core (replacing the quad's primary hard drive with the SSD) and simply boot up the quad core, would that be sufficient? Will the quad core recognize the hardware mismatch and automatically correct the drivers, while keeping my programs and files?
Or is there some other, efficient way to make the transfer?
I'm trying to use Windows Easy Transfer to rename my user profile and change the folder name to match however in Windows 8.1 that feature seems to be missing. How would I backup my files like I did in 8.1 and restore it to a user account?
I'm not sure when this problem started happening, but recently, when I plug in or unplug the power of my Galaxy S4, the computer will wake from sleep. I'm running CyanogenMod 11 on it, which is based on Android 4.4.2. I haven't installed or configured any apps on my PC to allow for this, nor any apps on the phone. How I can stop it?
From time to time I'm required to use USB Tethering to connect my Nexus 4 (Android 4.4.4) with my laptop so I can access internet (either mobile data or wifi from the phone to the laptop (because sometimes it gets better from where it is)).
The thing is that in around 95% of the times I tether the two systems I get a BSOD with the Watchdog Violation.
In attachment I've added the dump files as I saw in the forum faq.
I wanted to play around with Android some and I got this problem when i try to first open up the Android virtual session. I'm not all that familiar with the BIOS. I know how to navigate the BIOS, how to get to the BIOS, and I know it can mess you up badly if you do the wrong thing! (i.e. BIOS drivers)
It's about the ASUS Transformer AIO. It runs in Desktop-Mode with Windows, in Remote Desktop-Mode with Windows and in Tablet-Mode with Android. Is it somehow possible on the tablet (32 GB eMMC flash memory) to delete Android and install Windows?
Is there any chance of dualbooting Dell Venue 8 Pro with Windows 8 and Android? I like Windows 8 but would also like to be able to use Android on this awesome tablet.If not dual boot, is there any other way of using Android as virtual machine or something that provides full touch and other sensor's support?
I want to install a multi-boot W 8 / android and I've already boot on "android-x 86-4.2-20121225" (without install) with my W 700 but the wi-fi is not recognized. how to find a version of android who recognized the wi-fi card of W 700?
I actually installed the Android on Intel Architecture onto my Samsung xe700t a few times over the last few months, adjusting windows 8 or android options to suit my needs, but a few days ago I decided to format my laptop and reinstall Windows 8 and reinstall Android as I have previously, I am now getting this error message at the very end of the android installation process:
I have updated the bios, I have made sure my laptop is in UEFI format, I have made secure the BIOS isn't in secure boot, I have tried various USB sticks, I have also made sure the USB stick is first in the boot order.
So why I can't install Intel Android onto my pc anymore ...
