comment Are external USB hard drives meant to be connected all the time?
@Breakthrough Although it covers very similar grounds, I think this post is relevant and worth reading: Dr. Strangedupe: Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying And Love Duplication

comment Are external USB hard drives meant to be connected all the time?
@Breakthrough I can see the similarities, but I don't consider it a duplicate. I'm explicitly asking about an external USB device (HDD), whereas that question is asking about an entire computer with access to larger fans, and is generally accepted to be left on 24/7. External HDDs generally have their own power source too. The hardware is a different beast altogether, so to speak.

comment “Invalid MS-DOS function” error message when copying a file
I updated my question. The DVD contains other mp4 files which copied over just fine. The DVD is full of mp4 files I made a while ago.

comment How to get Quadraphonic audio channel option in Speaker Setup?
@emb1995 I have tried all of those, and those drivers do not work. I have drivers that work, but I cannot get the rear speakers. I'm not even sure if trying to find different drivers is even the heart of the issue or not. I'm looking for a solution that will add Quadraphonic into the Speaker Setup, maybe through some kind of setting.

Ok, I was able to find it here: support.creative.com/downloads/download.aspx?nDownloadId=10964 but I'm getting error that it was unable to find a compatible device to install on, even when running in Vista mode.

Is the model number right on the physical sound card?

comment How to format linux filesystem within Windows 7?
@freethinker the BIOS did show the hard disks, but they were disabled somehow. That was the problem.
