Sounds a little like a Dr. Seuss title doesn’t it? I wish it were that simple and that funny. Oh, I so wish it were and then I would not be in this predicament.
I finally had a chunk of time this week and decided to take the bull by the horns and get this damn book done as per Catherine’s suggestions on her latest post I re-blogged a few days ago. I really didn’t have that much left to finish. For two days I worked and did some editing and adding to. I was on a roll, on the downhill slope, and I could see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Then suddenly and I mean suddenly – my USB storage would not open when I tried to save some changes in a chapter! WTF?! The little blue light was on. The icon was there. I tapped save and again got this message –
Please insert a disc into Removable Disc (E:).
Looks just like that picture up there if you replace the G with an E. Under properties my used space and my free space both say 0 bytes. I know that’s wrong!
At first I panicked. Then I gathered my thoughts – as small and jumbled as they were in this hour of need and I called my friend V. She always knows how to fix any technical problem I have. She walked me through a few things. I shut the computer down and re-booted – twice. I tried different drives. I googled and found some scary stuff. I moved to my desktop computer and still nothing. Same error. Nothing. Absolutely Nothing! I inserted a differ USB storage and Voila! It opened right away meaning it wasn’t my drive or my computer. The problem was my disc!
V’s talking to her tech guy at the bank for suggestions, but I haven’t heard back from her yet. So what do I do? All suggestions will be taken seriously!
I know I should have saved that in more than one place and I always meant to. It just never happened. Actually, I am a lot calmer than I seem at this point. I have faith I will get that disc to work….someday. 😦
!!!!!!!!!!!DON’T LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOU!!!!!!!!!!
