    Make Win7 see USB flash drives as fixed disks (w/o flipping RMB)?

    Well ChipGenius helped me find the vendor tools for my drives and after some intense google-fu I got them of a russian site :D The tool happily flipped the RMB on the drives and yes, they come up as fixed now, but....wait for it......win7 won't use dynamic disks over USB....aaaargh! Though it'll...

    Make Win7 see USB flash drives as fixed disks (w/o flipping RMB)?

    What are you? Twelve? Cut it out both of you. Back on topic. In the mean time I found some new tools: Chipgenius Really useful tool for usb storage, but to get most of it you need access to a chinese forum,, which are pay/invite only :( Gives you very useful info, though. usbview...

    Yes, it would help if you read the Opening post. Lay of the booze :toast:

    Make Win7 see USB flash drives as fixed disks (w/o flipping RMB)?

    Formatting and partitioning have no connection to my question, unfortunately, though yes, you can't partition a removable drive with Winows LDM, but it's easy to sidestep.

    That's a fake photo right there. Here take a look at my collection :D Could not be bothered to find the rest.

    Ahem, no they're not. These are Microdrives: and high-res Right.

    Make Win7 see USB flash drives as fixed disks (w/o flipping RMB)?

    Um, ever heard of USB hubs? As long as you know that it doesn't make sense, right? :twitch: Get some Microdrives then, they are proper spinning HDDs the size of a type II CF!

    Make Win7 see USB flash drives as fixed disks (w/o flipping RMB)?

    Ah, there is no conflict, just plug them in :) But you need to flip the RMB (ReMovable Bit) on the drives or else you can convert them to dynamic drives, which you need to use Windows software RAID. Well it is kinda dumb, I agree :laugh: ;) Flash drives make sense cause of their lack...

    Make Win7 see USB flash drives as fixed disks (w/o flipping RMB)?

    Hi! Been looking into making USB flash drives come up as regular HDDs in Win7. The easiest way would be with the Lexar Bootit tool, but it doesn't support flipping RMB for my drives :( For XP there is a trick with the old Hitachi Microdrive drivers where you hack the .inf file so that it...

    Is my GTS 250 dying?

    Well, I did reapply the paste, the original one was some dry sh*t, it took a while to remove. Didn't change much, maybe a tad lower temps, that's all. But I did find out the cause: clocks....I lowered the clocks until I got rid of errors. What's funny, the clocks which work perfectly are...

    Is my GTS 250 dying?

    Just played half an hour of Crysis:Warhead. Everything seemed fine, if a tad smoother than my last card (9800gt 512mb). Put most of the things on the highest level and the temps on the GPU kept around 65C.

    Is my GTS 250 dying?

    Seems reasonable :) I was planning to do that, but heck, I'm lazy. Hmm, did you enable error checking in OCCT:gpu? Ah, it's still under warranty for a few months, but the store is out of country. Though I wonder how they'll react: Look the card runs everything you throw at it perfectly...

    Is my GTS 250 dying?

    Well, your reply makes sense, but consider this: a) there were bugs like this in OCCT:gpu, I've read up their forums. b) all the people experiencing these kind of errors had instabilities already (bsods, graphic drivers crashes and such) c) the errors point to the gfx memory failure, yet...

    Is my GTS 250 dying?

    Well it's not overheating, if you've read my post. If anything it's cooler than normal thanks to good cooling. The other thing is that outside OCCT:gpu and GPUTool there are no instabilities or artifacts of any kind and I have another user run the tests with he same results. Runs games...

    Is my GTS 250 dying?

    I just got a second hand GTS250 1gb with Zalman VF1050. It's working fine in Win7 x64 on the desktop and in a few games I tried (Assassin's Creed 2, Dead space). Found some time to test it out with GPUtool and OCCT. What happens is I get errors reported on default clocks as soon as temps go...

    need a volt mod for Galaxy 7300gt 128mb DDR3

    :cry: Just tested it with my venice 3200+@2.6. 630/792 => 5163 3dm05 :banghead: This isn't working as advertised :( Have to figure why later, it's kinda late here... If you would be so kind to test at 630/792, so I can compare, I'd be grateful.

    need a volt mod for Galaxy 7300gt 128mb DDR3

    Well, I went ahead and dropped r451 700->686 translates to 1.42v for the GPU. That got me to about 630MHz for the GPU. :/ What bothers me is that 631/800 got me 4940 05 marks, compared to stock 500/700->4150? This is tested on a sempron64@2.485? Is the cpu holding it back? I don't have time...

    need a volt mod for Galaxy 7300gt 128mb DDR3

    That r451 resistor?I tried to pencil mod it, but do I measure my pencil modding? Can I just measure its resistance? Or do I have to power up the card and measure the volts? I managed to get the resistance from 700 to 692 I think, how does that translate to voltage for the gpu?

    x850xt vs 7600gt? help me choose

    Guess again :) The cheapest 1950pro here is $290 I listed some local prices in the thread. I know that somewhere in the developed world I can get stuff cheaper, but for now I have to stick to what I can get here in my banana republic. Now, on the bright side, I just bagged my self a nice...

    x850xt vs 7600gt? help me choose

    2x $96=$192 :) But after talk with a friend who runs a HW store, I'm not so hot on the prospect of any SLI :/ Says he had many problems with all the SLI setups he sold. Same with another friend who works at a different HW store. :/ Well, I'm off to buy a multimeter, and hopefully tonight...

    x850xt vs 7600gt? help me choose

    Well the plain old 7300gt ddr2 can't quite compete here cause its stock 350/325 clocks (and ddr2). Compare it to the 7300gt ddr3 stock 500/700, you get the idea...And 7300gt ddr3 OC just nicely :)

    x850xt vs 7600gt? help me choose

    Depends on what you define as optimal? Optimal investment? 3dmark for buck? But yes, it sounds fun :roll: This all started cause I can sell mine x850xt and get either one 7600gt or 2x 7300gt dd3 for that money. And no, I'm not in the mood for spending a dime more on gfx. Some fun...

    x850xt vs 7600gt? help me choose

    These are Galaxy 7300GT ddr3 :) I'm getting 4800 '05 marks with just one. But today I hope I'll go me a multimeter and volt-mod it. I've seen ppl get over 7000 '05 marks with these. Will keep you posted about the volt-mod :) Yup, NF4 here. But I don't mind, if it weren't for these...

    x850xt vs 7600gt? help me choose

    I get about 6400-6600 '05 marks with mine. BTW I got this one a year ago, labeled as x800GTO (also it was a reference card sent by ATI to a review site) :D I knew that the guys got it wrong, so I had to flash it, and yea, now it's a normal x850xt, all 16 pipes and all :toast: It can go...
