Memory stick contents only briefly display and will not open

Model: Laptop C660D-102
Purchase date: 07/11/2010 - used very little and on very rare occasions, so virtually unused.
Problem: When a memory stick is inserted into either of two usb ports it will not open up on request, although I can see it listed in "Devices with Removable Storage" where it appears very briefly at regular intervals of about 10 seconds. The only occasions when It is available to open is when the laptop is initially switched on but even in this instance it reverts to its regular disappearing act after about 5 minutes.
Is anyone familiar with this scenario.

Is this with multiple USB sticks, or are you only checking one? Likewise, does it work on other machines?
Also, is that a model from the UK? You might try checking their support page.

  • Only one epub file will not open in ADE or on my Nook. The others I downloaded will open on both and will copy to the Nook as usual.

    I download epub books from Overdrive. Only one epub file will not open in ADE on my Mac or on my Nook. The many others I've downloaded will open on both and will copy to the Nook as usual. Using the latest edition of ADE. Could be a corrupted ePub file? Curiously, this is the second time I've downloaded this epub from the same site, and I had no problem the first time. It still has 9 days remaining in the borrowing period.

    Forgot to make clear that on both my Mac and the Nook, attempting to open the epub causes ADE to crash.

  • I installed safari 8.0.1 and now my computer is slow and will not open some pages  can i uninstall

    I installed safari 8.0.1 and now my mac is really really slow and will not open some pages. Can I uninstall?

    Please answer as many of the following questions as you can. You may already have answered some of them. In that case, there's no need to repeat the answers.
    Have you restarted your router and your broadband device (if they're separate) since you first noticed the problem? If not, do that now and see whether there's any change.
    If your browser is Safari, then from the Safari menu bar, select
              Safari ▹ Preferences... ▹ Privacy ▹ Remove All Website Data
    and confirm. Any change?
    If you're running OS X 10.9 or later, select the Advanced tab in the Preferences window and uncheck the box marked
              Stop plug-ins to save power
    Any change?
    Quit and relaunch the browser. Any change?
    Enable guest logins* and log in as Guest. Don't use the Safari-only “Guest User” login created by “Find My Mac.”
    While logged in as Guest, you won’t have access to any of your documents or settings. Applications will behave as if you were running them for the first time. Don’t be alarmed by this behavior; it’s normal. If you need any passwords or other personal data in order to complete the test, memorize, print, or write them down before you begin.
    Test while logged in as Guest. Same problem?
    After testing, log out of the guest account and, in your own account, disable it if you wish. Any files you created in the guest account will be deleted automatically when you log out of it.
    *Note: If you’ve activated “Find My Mac” or FileVault, then you can’t enable the Guest account. The “Guest User” login created by “Find My Mac” is not the same. Create a new account in which to test, and delete it, including its home folder, after testing.
    Enable Private Browsing in the Safari menu. Any change?
    Are any other web browsers installed, and are they the same? What about other Internet applications, such as iTunes and the App Store?
    If other browsers and Internet applications are also affected, follow these instructions and test. Any change?
    If Parental Controls is active for any user, please turn it off and test. Any change?
    If only Safari is affected, launch the Activity Monitor application and enter "web" (without the quotes) in the search box. If a process named "Safari Web Content" is shown in red or is using more than about 5% of a CPU, select it and force it to quit by clicking the X or Quit Process button in the toolbar of the window. There may be more than one such process. Any improvement?
    Open the iCloud preference pane and uncheck the box marked Photos, if it's checked. Any change?
    Are there any other devices on the same network that can browse the Web, and are they affected?
    If you can test Safari on another network, is it the same there?
    If you connect to your router with Wi-Fi and you can also connect with Ethernet, do that and turn off Wi-Fi. Any difference?

  • I purchased an iBook on my iPad air and all software updates are done but the book is listed under purchased and will not open to view

    I Purchased a book in iBooks on my iPad air with all updates complete 8.0.2 and the book is listed under purchased and will not open to view

    Tapping the icloud arrow should get it to download to your bookshelf and it should then get 'downloaded' against it in Purchased instead of the arrow. See if any of the following fix it :
    - close the iBooks app via the device's taskbar and then re-open the app and re-try downloading it : iOS: Force an app to close.
    - soft-reset of the device : press and hold both the sleep and home buttons for about 10 to 15 seconds (ignore the red slider), after which the Apple logo should appear - you won't lose any content, it's the equivalent of a reboot.
    - log out and back into your account : select the Featured tab in the app, scroll to the bottom of it, tap on your id and log out, and then log back in

  • K900 closed and will not open

    k900 closed and will not open I do not get any message when I connect the charger . In the same way there is no response from the phone to the computer bağladığımda problem. What should I do . turkey over the phone , no one has information about I would appreciate if you can help

    I started having the same problem after updating to IOS 8.3 on my IPhone 6.  Phone keeps shutting down and the only way to open again is to hold both the home and sleep button.  Being plugged into the charger makes no difference nor does the level of charge.  Has never happened until today after the update, just randomly shuts down while wearing it on my hip.  All apps seem to work fine while it is on.  I might need to return to IOS 8.2 if this continues to be an issue. Has not done it while in use yet.

  • My actual InDesign File has become an alias and will not do I fix?

    My actual InDesign file (61MB) is listed as an alias in the Finder and will not open in InDesign. This has happened since upgrading to Mavericks. This is a critical file to me; how do I make it just a standard InDesign (.indd) file again? Changing the filname extension does nothing. Help!

    OK so I’m late contributing to this thread, but this issue has recently started on one of our SMB shares and has been plaguing me for 6 weeks. I spent some time trying to find a fix and found any number of users who have had this issue, I tried a lot of 'fixes' which I'd cut and past into a text file from various user groups and cannot remember where I picked this one up so apologies to the orginal poster.
    I’ve also posted this fix in a number of forums so hopefully others searching for a fix can find it.
    You may need to download and install Codekit, I already have it installed and forget sometimes that some of these ‘hacks’ only work with it installed.
    Launch terminal and use this command /usr/bin/SetFile -a a followed by the path name to the damaged file.
    Something like
    /usr/bin/SetFile -a a /Volumes/YourServer/ShareName/FileName.alias
    The  easiest way to get the correct path name is to launch Terminal and drag  the damaged file to the command line, Terminal will create the correct  path, now all you need do is paste the command in to the Terminal  command line before the path and hit return.
    I  don't expect you will have this issue with InDesign files stored on  your local HD, it only seems to occur with files stored in a share on a Windows server accessed via SMB.

  • HT1277 my email displays but will not open, just the spinning icon

    My email displays but will not open in my laptop or ipad.  I just keep getting the spinning icon.  I can recieve emails on my iphone.  Any suggestions?

    If will launch on OS X and you can get to the Preferences settings and related, see the Apple troubleshooting article for some suggestions.  From there, get that working, then compare the differences between what's working and connecting, and what's not — the Connection Doctor and the Activity window should give you a pretty good idea of where things are hanging up — if not directly what's wrong — when troubleshooting the OS X connection.

  • Address Book 'Frozen' and Will Not Open

    My Address Book has completely frozen and will not open. Whenever I try to open the application, it just 'hangs' there, without actually opening. It was working fine only a few hours ago.
    I've tried the following:
    *Restarting my MacBook 3 times
    *Restoring Address Book from Time Machine
    *Deleting Address Book and reinstalling from the Leopard Installer disk
    Nevertheless, Address Book will not open. Any suggestions?

    I fixed the problem! I'm including the solution here, in case anyone else has the same problem.
    It appears that my Smart Groups somehow caused my Address Book to freeze up. Unfortunately, you can't delete your Smart Groups while the application is open. Instead, try this:
    1.) Close down Address Book
    2.) Go to Applications/AppleScript/Script Editor
    3.) Enter the following into Script Editor, replacing NAME OF SMART GROUP with the actual name:
    tell application "Address Book"
    delete group "NAME OF SMART GROUP"
    end tell
    4.) Click "Run."
    5.) Reopen Address Book. This should fix the problem. At least it did for me.

  • Please help! My Itunes says corrupt file and will not open (IMac 2010). I couldn't fix it by reinstalling so I moved it to trash. It will not delete from my trash as it is saying "Japanese.lproj" is in use. I can't delete or open to close it, what do I do

    Please help!
    My Itunes says there is a corrupt file and will not open (IMac 2010). I couldn't fix it by reinstalling ITunes so I moved ITunes to trash. It will not delete from my trash as it is saying "Japanese.lproj" is in use. I have never opened or used "Japanese.lproj". I can't delete ITunes or open ITunes to close the Japanese.lproj, what do I do? Thank you for any help you can provide..

    It will not delete from my trash as it is saying "Japanese.lproj" is in use. I have never opened or used "Japanese.lproj".
    Interesting. This sort of thing is more common on Windows systems. Taken at face value, one of the iTunes program files (one of the Japanese language resources) is damaged.
    I'd try running your Disk Utility over your startup disk. Does it find/repair any damage? If so can you empty your trash and reinstall your iTunes successfully now?

    Some work networks block sits like social sites.

  • Firefox suddenly crashed and will not open

    I am having this problem as well. I believe I have the latest version of FF. It was working fine all day then all of a sudden just crashed and will not open. I first kept getting a window stating"
    "Firefox had a problem and crashed. We'll try to restore your tabs and windows when it restarts"
    I submitted the crash report all 3 times it crashed successfully. But now, Firefox will not open at all,not even in safe mode.
    I have looked through any suggestions and nothing works. I can't even get the profile manager to open to test it.
    I would like to roll back to a previous version, IF that will solve this problem,but it's my bookmarks that I want to save. I don't want to lose them. But how can I import them if I can't even get FF to start?
    I did see a folder called bookmark backups or something, but for some reason it isn't showing all of them.
    Also, I was in a live chat with someone trying to help but they just left :( I was able to see my crash report via the instructions on this site, but now what? What do I do with it?
    Please can someone help me?
