I used a Kingston (I) flash drive to back up my computer in Windows 7 and it worked ok.  I later learned that I should of

used a DVD-R.  I since erased the backup from the Kingston flash drive and was going to use DVD-R to backup my computer.

 

Now I am unable to remove the Kingston from the page, I tried Manage Setting, Change Settings, but I can't change it.

 

How do I remove it?   Adminstrator settings?   Also when I insert a DVD-R in D drive I get the following message when I

Hi -

 

Installation Date: 12/17/2014 7:25:06 AM ??

 

I first thought that you may not have installed it fully, or correctly...........

Have you just fully installed, or reinstalled this system in the past week ??

Was this done with the correct Genuine Microsoft Install Disk or by some other method ??

You need to go to Control Panel > Device Manager, and check that all drivers were installed !
 

We will wait for your answer, and try to download then send us back this log.

 

Please download MiniToolBox  to desktop to run it.
 Checkmark the following boxes:

  • List content of Hosts
  • Flush DNS
  • List last 10 Event Viewer log
  • List Installed Programs
  • List Users, Partitions and Memory size

 Click Go and Copy / Paste the result. (result.txt)

 

 

...................................................................................................................................................................................................................

There is a CD / DVD player listed, but it may be a device that will not record. To replace it is the better current option -

SONY BD-ROM BDU-X10S ATA Device - " Media Type: BD Reader "
Name: SONY BD-ROM BDU-X10S ATA DeviceAvailability: Running/Full Power
Capabilities: Random Access, Supports Removable Media -
It is listed purely as  Read capabilities: CD-R, CD-RW, CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD+RW, DVD-R DL, DVD+R DL, BD-R, BD-ROM, BD-RE
 
It is listed as Drive : D which is normal for a first CD / DVD unit, and that means a USB port would be listed as Drive : E

 

Thank You -

Edited as I noticed a Typo or 2.-

Not sure what this has to do with the fact that you have no CD / DVD writer ?? I know who Brink is and his work.

 

Your main drive is usually : C Any installed second HDD becomes Drive : E  and onwards

An installed CD writer will be Drive D - While Drive I is not unusual for USB Flash Drives

 

We often get 3 HDDs on a single unit, so lettering is only due to when and what is installed.

 

Is this a computer you have just built or what exactly is the problem ??
