I had not tried to access it using Windows 7 before, and when I did, I thought things were okay initially: Windows gave the typical “installing drivers …
ready for use” messages when I connected the drive.
My computer is a Dell PC running Win 7 Professional (and, no I do not want to downgrade to Win 7 home premium on my PC as it has a business program that requires Pro version).
Doing things virtual for install stuff looks unstable to me from what i can see.(Far more system resources used and glitch prone)?
I'm writing a Windows device driver for a custom USB device, but am having trouble opening the device from my user program (using Create File) when the user program is run as a domain user.
Or are there any other solutions to this problem (such as connecting to the driver as a service and then accessing this service from the user program)?
I have a USB disk (Fantom 1.5 TB “green” drive) that I share with multiple operating systems: OS X, Linux, and multiple versions of Windows.
) but still get Access denied on the other drives (Compact flash, sd/mmc, Ms/MS PRO, SMx D picture usb) but at least there was progress, so maybe did help some.
I was able to find this link about access to drives when Acronis is installed 1st which I have. I am going to do a new Sfc /scannow before the reinstall to see if that is any better. j Let us know how it goes,ive just been playing around with this cos i needed to make a usb installer for this netbook, Quite simple and works fine.
But from there things got a bit strange: Windows gave the drive’s NTFS partition a drive letter and knew how much space on it was used and free, but when I tried to access the drive’s data via an application or Windows Explorer, I got the error: “[My disk label] is not accessible.
Access denied.” I started poking around with ownership and permissions, but this resulted in odd “you are not the owner” errors, or even worse: messages that claimed that Windows could not determine the owner of the device.
I didn’t want to hose my entire drive, or to mess up the disk’s partition table so that my other machines wouldn’t be able to access its existing data.
The solution was to download a free partitioning product called Partition Wizard Home Edition, and to have this application simply scan — not edit anything, but just — the existing partition table on the drive.
I fixed it am am back online, but it didn't fix my access issues.
