    Sitting with a few N54L in the wild and they have mainly been trouble free from the get-go. The one Win7 machine presented with XBMC problems last week that turned out to be wacky permission settings that did not allow XBMC to update its own library from some random arbitrary date. Took ownership of the settings folder etc etc and everything was back on track.

    Today I'm contacted because another Win7 machine is not picking up any USB flash drives all of a sudden (open to interpretation). Did the standard trouble shooting over the phone but had to remote into the machine in the end. Images edited as required.

    First did a scan for new hardware:

    But that failed:

    Device manager does pick up the drives ("JumpDrive") but presents with a nice little yellow triangle. Tried to update the driver directly:

    It searched for a driver online, found one, but got this error in the end:
    Name:  Access denied.JPG

    Access denied? A few hours of googling later points me to a ... permissions error. What is it with Win7 and permissions? I checked all the permissions mentioned, and then a few extra, but everything seemed 100% fine. What am I missing here? Anyone ever had a problem like this?
    ic's back, back again . . .

    On a side note, what software do you have to run to participate on the wug?

    Probably been asked a number of times... but is anyone running a TV tuner card in the microserver? Pointers on what to look for/avoid? Moving to a new place now and going to be a drag laying coax to the bedroom. Thinking of getting TV signal to Microserver and then hooking up to that via IP from RasberryPi in the bedroom... Haven't looked too much into this so please don't flame too much if it's a crap idea - just a thought at this stage.

    I don't see any decent usb3 cards in SA for the microserver. Would like to add it on later.

    I've also thought of this and actually tried it, by adding the stream as a channel on plex. Using a USB TV tuner card. Got it semi working and then work got in the way again. Maybe I'll get more time to play this weekend.
    Silence is golden, unless you have a toddler, then it is very suspicious.

    Where do I find the modded bios to enable full speed on the ODD sata? Something reliable with instructions.
