IPOD songs showing in Vista? by Rod Davies
Can u get Vista to see what songs are on your ipod so you can delete some songs? My Itunes library is NOT auto syncced as I have half of it on C drive and half on D drive of my computer so I manually manage the itunes library. But right now I'd simply like to plug my ipod in, see Drive G which is what it is, AND SEE and delete songs, but whereas videos and photos show up in Vista Home...

Anyone use HIS Video cards by Rod Davies
HIS X1550 PCI has 256mb onboard mem, is Vista certified, compared to my GeForce 5200 (?) which only has 128mb and is my Windows Experience weaklink, so thinking of upgrading. Thoughts? Concerns? And Vista WILL let me unplug old, plug in new video card without going thru re-validation experiences, right? Rgds

Audio Configuration set to Digital Output via Optical Jack by rodders
When the High Definition Audio Device is installed on my ASUS A8R-MVP based machine it only installs the digital output device SPDIF using the optical jack. The problem is that this mobo doesn't have an optical jack, and I just want to connect speakers to the analogue output. Is there any way to install a speaker device?

Vista CD burning tools "missing" from explorer. by RoddyP
Somehow, explorer has "lost" the menu options and tasks for CD burning. This used to work, but now has disappeared - either as a result of upgrading drive firmware, or uninstalling an old version of Nero. I've found a KB article describing how to fix this in XP.. (http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/316529/) ....but it doesn't apply to Vista - the registry entries are all subtly...

Vista keeps changing the positions of my dual monitors by Rodger in SF
I've got a notebook with a second monitor also attached. My notebook Monitor (#1) is on the right and the Second (#2) on the left. So I go into display settings and change it from #1-#2 to #2-#1 and all is fine for awhile. But every five to ten reboots Vista changes the setting back to #1-#2, which is annoying. Frequently this occurs after a software update of some sort - no pattern on...

RTL8029 drivers for Vista? by rodier
Hi all Im searching for drivers for Realtek 8029 (10mbit pci) card for Vista x64. I know many cards have that chipset, and it was native supported in XP, so I dont understand why they removed it in Vista. When I try XP drivers from some manufacturers, it tell me, there is no drivers for that device or its not x64. Anyone know how to solve it? Maybe some trick to force install 32bit drivers? I...

USB Device by Rodrigo
If I connect a new universal serial bus (USB) device to a USB 2.0 hub on a computer, the computer does not detect the USB device. Additionally, other USB devices that are already connected to the computer stop functioning, and I have to restart the computer to detect the USB devices. If the USB device is already installed on start, I have no problem. The Legacy USB Support is disabled.

Intermittent SOUND problems by Rod[_2_]
Hi Intermittently my sound drops out. I play CD on my PCs DVD or CD drive and sometimes I get the sound, sometimes not. I noticed that Vista had, as part of an Update, in fact updated my SoundMax Integrated Sound Driver. But that was on day one of my PCs usage. The dropping out has only happened in past 2 days. Would a newly installed Wacom Bamboo Tablet (and driver) possibly be a cause???

microphone picking up systemsounds by Roedskov
I have a mic problem where the mircophone line acts as a output line like a speaker, u can record the mic and u will hear system sounds (mp3 music, gaming sounds) but not my voice. i have tried 2 soundcards and two headsets, formated 2 times. I think thats vista thinks it has a 7.1 speaker setup so it made the mic line to an outline. it worked 3 weeks ago.

Manually setting and prioritising IRQs in Windows Vista by Rog.
I have what is a simple question, though I have been unable to find an answer as yet; the question is in 2 parts: 1/ How do I tell Vista that I want to change the IRQs that Vista chooses to assign to hardware devices? 2/ How do I tell Vista in what priority order I want these IRQs handled? Strictly the second part is not needed if you can change all the IRQs (and you know their fixed...
