Where is the firewire port?

I've got a Sony DVD burner in an External "Galaxy" box and it can use either USB or Firewire. It came with a Firewire to USB cord, which seems to defeat the whole purpose. I'd like to use a Firewire to Firewire. The port on the external DVD is large, but I don't see a similar port on the R15. Is the firewire port on the laptop the small hole labled I S400, next to the Secure Card slot? The Galaxy Meal Gear Box says it has IEEE1394-5.25". There is nothing in the very sparse Toshiba R15 "Resource Guide" about Firewire at all.

Where is the firewire port?


Confirm that the laptop has a PCMCIA card slot. If so, you can get a Firewire PCMCIA card and communicate at near bus speeds on the laptop. That will be a lot faster than the USB port. Almost any Firewire PCMCIA will work. Just make sure that slot is in your chassis.

A very common laptop problem, but not always easy to rectify. Usually, the smallish receiver portion is fastened onto the mobo which means a total or near-total disassembly of the laptop. The part is rather inexpensive, but the labor to change it is not.

My Toshiba Satellite R15-S822 has been working slower and slower


Some computers can be slow or short of hard drive space for quite simple reasons. Windows and other program hide temporary files in lots of different places The best option is not always a program or utility and if you want to do as much as you can for FREE like I do then you have a few options.   1. First you need to be in windows explorer.   2. Click TOOLS and FOLDER OPTIONS   3. Now click the VIEW tab   4. Tick the Show Hidden Files And Folders option Unpick Hide Protected Operating System Files (it may warn you but you can ignore it)   5. Click APPLY then OK   6. NOTE some files may not delete this is OK Also DO NOT DELETE the folder itself where mentioned for cleaning.   7. Using windows explorer go into the WINDOWS folder and look for a directory called TEMP (it is possible there may be more than one)   8. Select all the contents and delete them. Do the same for any other temp folder e.g. temp000   9. Now navigate to Documents and Settings There are quite a few folders in here that can be cleaned up   10. Look for folders named "Local Settings" In there you will find more TEMP folders that can be cleaned out   11. Now look inside the Temporary Internet Files. Delete anything EXCEPT cookies. Otherwise passwords for some sites you have stored may need you to type the password again.   12. Do this for each user / profile you see.   13. Now check the C: drive itself and see if there are any Temp folders and clean those out too   To prevent accidental deletion of any files windows needs you should go back to step (4) and change the two settings back to their original

Recovery Problems I need to perform a a recovery on this tablet laptop but the problem is the firewire cd/dvd drive doesn't work. I have two of thes Acer external firewire drives and neither works so it is probably the firewire port on the unit but the wires on these drives are notoriously flimsy. I tried doing a restore from the hidden partition drive that is on every Acer but the Alt F10 function does nothing. I even purchased a usb cd/dvd drive to try to boot the recovery CD from it but it won't recognize the drive. I was thinking I might try making a bootable usb thumbdrive from the recovery CD and then using the bios to boot from it. Running out of ideas though. The machine is still working pretty well it has ton's of corrupted installs on it and needs to be flushed. Can't find the handle though. :-)


The Tablets can be quite difficult to perform a reimage or recovery on as most bios versions on them do not recognise a USB device as bootable. My recommendation would be to obtain a Bootable Floppy disk that contains an imaging program. (GHOST. Powerquest etc). From here you may have 2 options available to you.1. Attempt to recover using the hidden partition on your hard drive.2. Recover from an image located via the network. You will need to ensure that a driver for your network card is also bundled into this install. Once this boothdisk has been created you will need to create a "shared folder" on another PC which contains the image you require. Once the bootdisk has loaded point yourself to the shared folder.Lastly - You may be able to find an updated bios version that allows boot from USB device.
