General Chat / Re: Need help copying a large 30GB file
« on: March 25, 2015, 01:43:58 PM »
Mystery solved! Now that I have the flu I had some time to troubleshoot this problem. My pc was overclocked just a tiny bit too much and it was causing errors (probably the cheap USB3 controller I got on cant handle the faster overclocked speeds). I had my FSB at 422 for many years giving my pc 3.6 ghz and ram was at 844mhz. I lowered it to 418 which gives me 3.57 ghz. I have no issues with the 422 with anything else that's why I had it running like that since 2008. BTW. Cpu is Core2quad q9550s (65w TDP)  mobo Asus p5q-em 4 sticks of 2 gb corsair 800 mhz ddr2 ram.

I have no problems copying or verifying small files. it only has a problem with huge ones.
Maybe this md5 app is faulty?

No. 2 brand new drives, both are usb 3. First is a WD Passport Ultra 2tb, second is a WD Green 3 TB that I posted about a while back that I put in a new enclosure that I had to use the GPT partition system. I would like to get some kind of a file copy app that does md5 hash checking and isnt one of the ones I mentioned in the post above. Oh this morning right after I posted here I booted up my Linux mint and did a copy from one drive to the other then booted up windows 7 and did a md5 hash check and still had errors. I tested both drives and checked SMART data and no errors at all.

It seems simple but I cannot get the copied file to match my md5 hash. So far I tried it multiple ways to copy the file. I tried Terra Copy, Total Commander and the conventional windows 7 copy function. I cannot match the md5 of original hash to certify that the copy was exact.

Any Ideas?

I just happen to visit piratebay a few minutes ago and seen this as an error page saying piratebay host is sending error 522. They are using CloudFlare. The Cloud FLare company offers free and paid plans but is this really necessary to have even if its free? Would any of you benefit from this? I don't entirely understand 100% if something like this is worth the time to sign up and set up.

I reinstalled Mint again to get the operating systems to show in Grub but I don't like what this did. The Mint installation modified my Windows 8 hard drive to put some boot files there because if I have the Windows 8 drive disconnected Mint will not start.

I had to type the above commands to get my GTX750TI video card working. Can someone tell me what these do that the default Mint 17.1 couldn’t?

I'm not ignoring your suggestion. I am just waiting to set aside some time to work on this. Thanks

General Chat / New problem (3TB ext drive and new enclosure)
« on: January 10, 2015, 05:54:02 PM »
So I have a WD external drive (3TB) It appeared that it died but luckily it was the enclosure electronics that died as the drive shows fine connected to a pc directly. The problem I have is that now I have a new enclosure and Win7 wants me to initialize the disk before I can use it. Both enclosures are USB3. Last time I did this long time ago with another drive it got wiped. So my question is this. Why the F I can't just swap enclosures and have the drive work normally? I have over 2TB on there and don't really want to lose all that. Is it because I am using the GUID partition type on the drive? Like I said windows is able to see the drive contents when directly connected to motherboard. I also am sure the new enclosure works as I put a 2 TB drive in and also had to initialize and the drive worked after initialization. But I don't want to initialize a a drive with over 2TB on it. I know I can copy from on to the other and then initialize and copy back but there has to be a easier way.

Ok, I got Mint 17.1 Rebecca installed and its fine but I have a question. My Ubuntu used to show my other OSes in the boot menu that shows before the rest loads. How Can I get them to show again?

What is a nice Linux distro now days? I'm totally willing to install fresh to fix this. What can you recommend that is easy to use and doent require much command line work to get it working. Also would be nice if it had all the needed software already in there like flash, media codecs and stuff. I would like to try something other than Ubuntu.

General Chat / Re: How much do you walk in a day?
« on: December 30, 2014, 12:23:11 PM »
I have a pedometer and I entered in my weight and height and it says that I walk about 3.5 miles from the time i leave for work to when i get back home. I keep it in my pocket as I can't have anything showing on the outside of my uniform except the standard issue stuff. 3.5 miles is the average I been seeing and sometimes its less and sometimes more. I take the car to work but then I stand and sit all day but mostly stand except for breaks/lunch and copule other times where I sit.

Mobile Devices / Re: BlueStacks Android emulator for windows.

If you did get it on TPB, you really didn't need to. Pretty popular, and the performance is decent. I just don't care enough about android to run an emulator, haha.

I downloaded the one directly from the site and its a bit different. It has bloatware and you need to tinker around to get rid of the bloat a bit. Also the version takes longer to install as it downloads some files as its installing and then does a "android is upgrading" for a little bit too. Also the site version does not have a superuser app but appears to be rooted as I tried 2 root checker apps and both said its rooted but I didn't get any message about allowing them root access so I don't know if it really is or not. The version I got is just simple to install and comes with some needed apps built in.
I will try the genymotion and see how it works. I just want to use it for some apps that are not available on windows and some that are just too huge on windows. Ever since I got the first smartphone in the last days of 2013 I been enjoying the small and useful apps that google play has to offer.

I got this program a while back and I honestly don't remember from where but probably piratebay. Anyway I can share the install file on dropbox if anyone wants it. Its pretty cool and a good way to use android on windows. It is running Android 4.4.2. It supports most apps except the ones that need gps or the accelerometer or other similar sensors. Installing APKs is as simple as double clicking them from your windows folders. It comes pre-rooted and even has titanium backup pro and a few other pro apps.  Here is some screenshots.
