meaning what? when you run the vcd file i have sent you, what happens?

be aware, you have to extract the file to a separate folder and run it as administrator or better yet, take ownership of it before running it.

let me if it doesn't work, i'll try to make am image of the full vcd and send it to you

hi when i run the vcd file you gave me it brings up the virtual cd on the hdd which now has a copy of windows 8 on......and i cant re attach the file you gave me instead of windows 8 because its decided that the vcd cant be written over .......so how the hell did i do it in the first place ..........so ive been on line and bought the same drive and im gonna try and see if when i install the lifestudio software if it picks this hdd up again................hope this makes sence........;0)

yes and it now wont re-write.............i thought if i created a new vcd and then tryed to find the hdd it might find it or if i could re-write it with your file then the hdd would be found but it wont allow me to redo it and from what i have seen it wasent supposted to in the first place...........
