Re: How To Create a System Image With Macrium Reflect Rescue Disk In Linux Mint.

VirtualBox has nothing to do with this Tutorial...Macrium sees Physical Drives not Virtual ones. Have you tried to create a System Image of your HP ? If so did you see at the end...Image Created Successfully ? You said the Rescue Disk doesn't see the External HDD on your Dell...have you tried creat...

Re: How To Create a System Image With Macrium Reflect Rescue Disk In Linux Mint.

I can only reply as a newbie. I seem to remember being told that either linux or virtual box could see a flash drive but not both at the same time.
But i don't know how it gets removed from Linux so that virtual box can see it.

Re: How To Create a System Image With Macrium Reflect Rescue Disk In Linux Mint.

I have at least half a dozen external USB hard disks and tried them all. WD Elements USB3, WD My Passport USB3, Sandisk Sata SSD in USB enclosure, Samsung Sata mechanical in USB enclosure and others too. Linux Mint sees them all and automatically mounts them. The only thing I can think of is that Ma...

Re: How To Create a System Image With Macrium Reflect Rescue Disk In Linux Mint.

Thank you Bob. After reading your reply I tried another couple of times with no joy. The only thing Macrium PE could see was the Linux Mint partitions and the CDRom drive containing WindowsPE. When I searched the "alternate locations" it could only see something called BootX which did not contain my...

Re: How To Create a System Image With Macrium Reflect Rescue Disk In Linux Mint.

I followed Bob's instructions to the letter and, yes, Macrium Windows PE did boot up. However, it did not see my external hard drive that I wanted the image saved to. I tried multiple times, and thinking it was a USB 3 driver issue I created a personal wim file containing the whole of Windows 7 WinP...

Re: How To Create a System Image With Macrium Reflect Rescue Disk In Linux Mint.

Thank you Bob. I'm going to have a go at following your tutorial tomorrow. I'm too knackered at the moment after spending about 7 hours to do a simple backup. I first used redobackup which was a dismal failure because it failed 5 times creating a usb bootable disk and on the 6th attempt it said succ...

Re: How to connect to a compatible Samsung laser printer

I know I have a different printer to the one being discussed

My printer was a Samsung ML-2525W (Wireless Printer) the driver was installed by Linux Mint but it would not print.

I seem to remember there were two models listed and I changed from PXL to 2.0.0 after which it worked correctly.

Re: Program to split mp3 audiobooks in 15 minute files

Try installing a virtual machine of Windows to run your program. I use Oracle's VirtualBox. I installed Virtual box but it won't start. It says VT-x is disabled in the BIOS for all CPU modes. I looked in the BIOS for this HP Elitebook 2570p but cannot find any setting for VT-x. This HP has a strang...

Re: Program to split mp3 audiobooks in 15 minute files

All my audiobooks are in the mp3 format. AudiobookCutter will split an audiobook that is many hours in length very quickly in one go. I choose 15 minute splits but you can choose what splits you want. It does not re-encode so the process does not cause the files to lose audio quality. If the book is...

Program to split mp3 audiobooks in 15 minute files (SOLVED)

I have only one application that I will miss (AudiobookCutterPro) and I can find no Linux app that can compare. I have tried it in Wine but it complains that it cannot find the audio codec although it does split the first 15min of the audio which plays perfectly. (I like my audiobooks split into 15 ...

I know where the printscreen key is on my keyboard and I used it. It was the "paste" bit that I couldn't do. There is no "paste" involved; the screenshot should appear in your Pictures folder automatically. "Paste" after a screenshot is a Windows habit. :wink: So this issue is solved? If you feel t...

What are the weird files? Please run this and post the results:
ls -la ~
The weird file list has already been done albeit typing all the filenames myself!

Thank you for showing me another useful terminal instruction that I shall add to my list.
