This is a modem error code. Are you connecting through a modem? Do you have a modem on your computer?

comment TP -Link powerline adapters randomly disconnect
If you have received a resource CD with the adapters, install the Management Utility from it as explained in the manual and start it up and it will do the firmware upgrade for you as explained in section 4.3 in the manual without needing to download anything. Otherwise, demand the resource CD from the shop. For more info about firmware installation see this guide.

comment Is is possible to get a virtual disc drive to mount over usb to another machine's motherboard?
I'm referring to just using an external portable hd. I don't understand why you can't name the files whatever you like.

comment Backup system image Windows 8.1 fails
See if in the Event Viewer you have a useful error message when the backup fails. I also do not counsel using Windows Backup - too many gotchas. Are you interested in alternatives?

Why do you reject the non-hardware solution of keeping the master images on an external disk?

If you have not deleted the library that is the source of all these links, it might be worthwhile to try ldconfig which re-establishes all links. You could use the -v verbose parameter for more info.
