Can't burn DVDs or CDs on Windows Vista by Guille
Hi, I have Home Premium 64-bits, installed one month ago and never tried this until now. When I insert a blank DVD or CD, it doesn't show anything and then I got to My Computer and double click the DVD icon and I get the message that "Windows can not read the disk on drive D:\" or something like that. So I went to the manufacturer site and downloaded firmware, updated, rebooted and still...

Ghost sounds by SusanV[_2_]
I have extraneous sounds left over from viewing a Web page video. I have done all the anti-virus/Spybot/reset Internet Explorer tricks that I can think of. Brand new Dell came with Vista. Ignore it? Or anyone have hints for fixing the sound card?

When I "Safely Remove Hardware" I cannot access it again until reb by jodzeee
My PC has several built-in media card readers. When I download photos from them, I click on "safely remove hardware" and successfully (i think) remove them, but then they are no longer recognized if I put another card in the reader. If I reboot I can access them again, but I shouldn't have to do that. Does anyone know why it's doing this or some kind of fix without rebooting every time so...

USB Performance and configuration... by Howard Woodard
I have a Sony Vaio desktop that has 4 USB 2.0 connectors on the back and 2 USB 2.0 connectors on the front. I've noticed that I'm getting nowhere near the 480 mbps throughput of a 2.0 device. In fact, I'm lucky to get more than about 4.5 mbps with 1.5 mbps being fairly common as well. The devices are external USB drives and the performance that I'm referring to is the transfer rate that...

Nvidia Driver on Dell Laptop by Greg
I'm running Vista Home Premium on my Dell Vostro 1500 with the latest drivers from Dell. Is anyone aware of a way where I can config the Nvidia driver to allow me to choose which windows are always on top? I could do this when I was running XP with the Nvidia desktop manager.. But alas...Nvidia drivers for Vista don't have this option. I kind of liked this feature. Thanks, Greg
