  1. Reinstall did not fix

    It was a great idea and all went well but the same thing is happening after the drive reinstalled... floppy drive light comes on while drive tries to read. Then it goes out. Repeat until disabled.
  2. I did not try that. I was not sure if Windows...

    I did not try that. I was not sure if Windows would detect and reinstall it and find drivers, etc. without my intervention. If you think it will, it's worth a try and I will try it after I'm done my...
  3. I don't see any related errors in Windows Event...

    I don't see any related errors in Windows Event Log. And Autoruns found nothing. I do use that to check every once in a while.
  4. Thanks but that doesn't seem to be it. It's more...

    Thanks but that doesn't seem to be it. It's more like a copy\read\other operation failed but the computer doesn't know it and keeps trying.
  5. Why do you ask if I use MS Office? I use Excel...

    Why do you ask if I use MS Office? I use Excel frequently and Word rarely.
  6. Not an app and not boot order

    This started happening after some mis-clicked copy. I was not installing any programs. Yes, it happens after reboots. I did not change the boot order and would never set a diskette in front of...
  7. Floppy (diskette) drive continually accessed

    I ran perfmon /report on my Win 7 machine and it reminded me of a problem I could not solve.

    I forget what caused it and think it was a mis-click when I was copying files, but my floppy drive A:...
  8. Thanks for the info. I still don't know when to...

    Thanks for the info. I still don't know when to use the console and when to use the ISE, but at least I know the difference and can look it up. I appreciate it.
  9. Thanks for your reply and offer. I REALLY want to...

    Thanks for your reply and offer. I REALLY want to spend time getting familiar with PowerShell but know nothing about it at this time so TagLib-Sharp seems way over my head for now.

    I was hoping...
  10. I understand what you are saying and it works...

    I understand what you are saying and it works correctly when I use objFolder.GetDetailsOf(strFileItem, 27) in vbs.

    PowerShell must have a way to access the information. Does anyone know how?
  11. Various PowerShell questions and extended file properties

    Win 7 64 bit.

    I am trying to obtain the length of mp3 and mov files using extended file properties. I created a nasty, but working way using VBS but thought I'd give PowerShell a try and found an...
  12. You are correct, I DO have PowerShell!

    Thanks for that heads up - I never noticed. Probably because I know nothing about it whereas I've written tiny VBS scripts before. If I can figure out how to get PowerShell code to run, at least I...
  13. Tinto Tech - Thank you for this information. I...

    Tinto Tech -

    Thank you for this information. I was hoping for a super-secret DIR flag, but I did a quick test which worked and am certain I can study and scrape together the VBS code that will get...
  14. How can I obtain all displayed info on files from Windows Explorer?

    I would like to find a way to obtain the length (playing time) of mp3 files and have them stored in a text file.

    In other words, when using Windows Explorer to show mp3 files in detail view, I can...
  15. Booting into safe mode (without networking)...

    Booting into safe mode (without networking) worked. Thank you for the suggestion as obvious as it was. Sometimes we just forget to try the easy stuff first!

    I suspect the problem was caused by the...

    I tried that (just now) but No Items matched my search.
  17. How to remove Network Location Shortcut that hangs

    I created an FTP shortcut I cannot delete.
    To create, I right clicked Computer in Windows Explorer, selected Add a Network location and entered the values.
    Now, when I try to select it in any way...

    Are you saying that patches can be different at different times?

    Susan,
    I've been unclear on this point for a long time.
    I understand that when you say to hold off on installing a certain patch, is it often because you are waiting to see how many problems it...
