  • Turning Wheels 'Digital Library' USB flash drive

    October 2017 I bought the USB stick with the Turning Wheels Digital Library. It was a lot of reading. I read all from 1963 until 1971. Last year I made a break from reading from the USB flash drive. In the last TW there was an interesting article in the Co-Operator about Bell Housing runout and correction. There was a reference to September 2001 TW. What a luck I have the USB I think. But when try reading that file in the USB the computer says that the file i corrupt (?)!
    The same goes for almost any other file I tried. Have anybody else experienced the same? I know it is difficult to file a complain on bad quality after 2 years, but I must say I am very disappointed.

    Are you using the same computer and viewing package that you were using back in 2017? That might make a difference.

    Has the flash drive been subjected to static discharge sparks?

        Yes I had an older laptop than today, but I don't understand why this will make a differens. I can open other PDF files that is older on my computer. And no
        the flash drive have not been subjected to static discharge.

            Hi. I am glad to hear you found the info you needed.

            Something to consider for down the road... When I receive data on a stick drive, CD, DVD or simple download I ALWAYS save it to any number of other locations. This could be copying to another DVD or thumb drive or putting it in a folder on one the multiple portable USB drives I have connected to my computer. I never rely solely on the original media my data arrives on. I then do put the original media away somewhere safe so I can loose it all at once, but at least I have a backup! Food for thought.

              Often, when computer's update or you change operating systems, an older file may not work correctly. I have had to go back and download files to allow the older files to open on a newer system. This may be your problem with your stick drive. If you're not comfortable or don't understand this procedure, most computer repair shops will do it for a minimal charge.........or ask a 9 year old that doesn't know how to use a dial phone, but can whiz through computer problems. I often "Google" the problem and several solutions show up and often a "Youtube" video that takes you step by step.
