Drivers/Hardware :: Lightscribe Drive Won't Write Labels

Sep 7, 2015

Normal PC that was running win 7 Pro. Had an HP 1260 Lightscribe drive. Burned CDs, DVDs AND Lightscribe labels... Worked perfectly. Worked for years. I know how to use it.

Upgraded from Win 7 to Win 10 Pro. Concurrently, my hp 1260 died and I bought a TSST L632M USB Lightscribe drive. I plug is into a USB port AND IT WORKS. It burns CDs. It burns DVDs. It does NOT burn Lightscribe labels. Drive is clearly marked "Lightscribe". The Internet SAYS it's a Lightscribe drive.

The Lightscribe service is running. The Lightscribe Control Panel SAYS IT'S THERE. The DISK is a TDK and clearly marked "Lightscribe". As near as I can tell, it should work.

The Lightscribe template labeler goes through the WHOLE process of "writing" with the animation showing the text being written. BUT, the drive LED never flashes, and nothing gets written.

I tried it on a SECOND machine - one running Win 10 HOME. Same result. Unfortunately, I've upgraded all four PCs to either Win 10 Pro or Win 10 Home, so I no longer have a Win 7 PC to try the drive on.

WHY this thing won't do what it's clearly marked to do? Driver of some sort?

Drivers/Hardware :: Cannot Format HD

Dec 4, 2015

I have a 4TB HD that was previously formatted that I've put into an external hd bay. When I go into Computer Management/Disk Management the hd is not listed in the top section and in the bottom section it is split into 2048 GB and 1678 GB, both "Unallocated". I want to reformat the hd into one partition but the only available option when I right click the larger partition is "New Simple Volume" and for the smaller partition there are no options available at all. Nowhere does it give me the choice to delete everything or just reformat the entire drive.

Drivers/Hardware :: Cannot Format Brand New HDD

Nov 25, 2015

Purchased a WD 6TB Blue yesterday, ran disk management and created one partition using NTFS. Formatted and did its thing but it just displays the total size of the partition with RAW next to it. Tried reformatting again to NTFS but I get the error; "The format did not complete successfully".

Deleted the partition and tried to create a 2TB partition out of the drive with the exact same scenario happening again. Tried swapping between GPT and MBR with no success. Also tried a different SATA port with a different cable and same thing.

Ran Windows error checking and WD LifeGuard on Extended Test over night and both came back with no errors.

Ran Disk Part in cmd, after entering in clean i get the error; "DiskPart has encountered an error: The device is not connected. See the System Event Log for more information."

Drivers/Hardware :: Cannot Format External Hard Drive

Sep 26, 2015

When I plug my external into my pc it tells me it's unable to use and to format the drive. So I try to do so, and Windows tells me that there's a program using the external drive.I attempt to format anyway since I know there's no programs using the drive, and after a minute the formatting comes to a stop and I get a message saying it's unable to format. I've tried formatting it via 'This PC' and DIsk Management in Windows 10. Tried Quick Format as well and nothing is progressing.

Installation :: Keeps Reverting To Password Protected?

Jan 14, 2016

How do I get rid of the password when I start Windows 10? I have successfully done that a few times but it keeps reverting to password protected. I have used windows+R to get to netplwiz.exe and when that didn't work, I went on to regedit and followed the directions at [URL]..... It worked initially but now I'm back to having to use a password after the computer was put in sleep mode. Why does it keep reverting?

Accounts :: Password Protected Login Feature

Jan 5, 2016

So I have Windows 10 and want to get rid of the password protected login feature. I found some steps on this site which are vaguely "On your windows 10 Start menu window, right click at the Win logo > select Run option > in the Run box type netplwiz > OK > follow the prompts. Restart Win 10."

Did that. On restart, I didn't need a password. Naturally, I thought the problem was solved. Nope. When the computer goes to sleep, I need to enter a password to re-open it; when it is turned off or restarted, I don't need a password.

Networking :: Turning Off Password Protected Sharing On Private Network?

Nov 6, 2015

I have a Windows 10 PC, with one of it's functions being that of a file server/NAS for my home network. I set it up with password protected sharing and a user account/password that everyone knows and uses to access it. I didn't really have any reason to use password protected sharing at the time, but it was the default so I left it.

Now I have a couple of network streaming devices that can't handle password protected sharing, so I was considering turning it off. Is there any reason not to turn off password protected sharing on a private network? Obviously I don't mind everyone on the network having access, but I was wondering if it had any other potential security benefits that I haven't thought of.

Performance :: Cannot Edit Or Write To Registry

Feb 10, 2016

I have been working with windows 10 X64 PRO for a little bit now. I can still not figure out why my scripts (.vbs) or .exe that I push to or use on my domain machines will not edit or create keys in the registry. The only way i can do it is to full kill UAC then reboot then make changes then turn it back on then reboot again. Listed below our the UAC settings we have set for our select few windows 10 machines. We have UAC fully off in windows 7, but it is needed in windows 10 to have apps run.


[Code] …..

What I need to do so i can make registry change on the fly. This going to be a big deal breaker for us to move to Windows 10 if i can not change values.

Can't Write To Folders From Network After Upgrading

Sep 15, 2015

I upgraded a workstation to Win 10 Pro. The system, System X, has two admin users, A and B. A is logged on to System X. Volume C is shared from the root on System X, and all admins on the system have permissions to Share C with full control. B is logged on to another system, System Y (Win 8.1). B can access (read) almost all folders on System X from System Y, but cannot write to the folders as he did in the past. I included a screenshot of the sharing options, which are the same for all networks, though Network Discovery is off.

Networking :: Can't Write To Unix CIF Shares

Jan 4, 2016

I have a Freenas Server (based on FreeBSD Unix) connected to my network. I can't get it to show up in file explorer untill I type "//" (it's IP address). When I try to drag a file to the window CIF shares (Permissions in Unix are Allow Guest Access and Recursively set sane default windows permissions on share) I get the error "You Need Permission to Perform this Action". Both of these features worked on Win 7 Pro before I did an upgrade to Win 10 Pro. I also did a fresh install of Win 10 Pro and it made no difference so I restored a Macrium image of the Win10 Pro Upgrade.

Cannot Write To Documents Folder After Upgrade

My standard Documents located in C:users...documents is no longer a writable folder following upgrade to Windows 10. Affects Visual Studio, Outlook and some other software. eg for Visual Studio 2013: CurrentSettings.vssettings cannot be written.

I am administrator but this doesn't useful. Also logged on as a local user instead of Windows Live account, but same results.

Games Cannot Write Save Files

Oct 16, 2015

As described above, I have games with varying degrees of the problem. Some cannot save settings, still some other cannot save game progression, the worst has it both. I was able to do various workarounds that let me partially solve the problem.

However, I hit a block with my newly installed Metro Last Light Redux, it doesn't write any saves anywhere. I Googled my problem and no solution fit me, I tried writing an "attrib" modification on "My Documents" using an elevated command prompt to rid the "Read-Only" attribute but that still didn't work. I tried taking ownership of the folders in question but still nothing.

Torrent Program Can't Write On Disc

Aug 8, 2015

I have only one active account on Windows 10, and it xy -> account type is administrator. My UAC settings are set to never notify. Now every program that i run is not run as admin (as was the case on windows 7) but rather as normal user account. Is there a way to change that globally?

Some problems that i have because of that: Torrent program can't write on disc (first time i see this), all games can't update and write to disc, they run fine tho. I usually let BSPlayer to download subtitles and write them in movie folder that doesn't work as well. If i right click -> run as admin program s work fine but it's a hassle i want to avoid.
