Syncing Card Reader with WMP11 by miked7928
I have a new machine with Vista 64, which has wmp11. I have a micro sd storage card in my smartphone where I keep all my music. WHen I attempt to sync with WMP11 something funny happens. If the card is installed in my phone and I am have the partnership connected in Mobile Device Manager, WMP11 will see the card and allow me to sync to it. However, the sync speed is slow. So I purchased a card...

Naming USB ports for ejecting by scott needs hel
For either, or ideally both, Vista and XP, is there a way I can name USB ports so that when I click on the eject icon in the task bar to safely eject the device, I don't have to remember what USB drive is in what port? Right now it says something like "*Safely remove mass storage device - drive X*", when I would like it to say something like "*Safely remove USBdrive2- Drive X*" or just simply...

IEEE 1394/Firewire and Vista Ultimate by DaveW[_2_]
I'm out of ideas. I've got a new computer with Vista Ultimate installed and an ASUS motherboard with front and back 1394 connectors. I can't get my video camera (Sony DCR-TRV30) to be recognized by the computer. Here's what I've done so far. Checked the device manager no problems with the driver (no !) Purchased new firewire cables ( 2 new ones) = no change. Purchased a new firewire PCI card...

Desktop Graphics v 3D gaming performance indexes seem at odds by Michael Ward
How is it that my Samsung M40+ laptop with ATI Mobility Radeon 9700 can score 2.0 for graphics, and 3.6 for gaming graphics? Why is there such a large discrepancy? Can anyone explain how the scoring system can produce such different score for seemingly related stats?

very slow ide DVD read in vista x64 by Dean Malencik
::I installed vista x64 ultimate RC1 on a Gigabyte E45-UD3R motherboard with 8 megs of RAM. Everything seems to be working fine except for the DVD read/write drive. Incidentally the hard drives are SATA but the DVDROM is an ide device. If I put in a blank disk and then burn some files to it everything is fine and responsive. However if I put this same disk in at a later time and try to view...

Unable to turn off readyboost by Meta
When I go to the readyboost tab on the properties page for my flash drive to turn off readyboost there is no button to turn it off, it only says that there isn't enough free space on the flash drive and doesn't give me the option of turning readyboost off (I have about 17 mb of free space left after devoting as much of the 2 gb as I could to readyboost).

Terratec Phase 88 Rack Firewire Audio device by Markus Eßmayr
Hello, I own a "Terratec Phase 88 Firewire" audio device which offers 8 simultanious in and out channels. I'd like to use this thing to create multichannel recordings using my notebook.

Flashing Dlink DCM202 Modem by [email protected]
Has anyone been able to flash the firmware for the DLink DCM202 modem. The instructions on the website are worthless. Calling tech support for this problem is also worthless. I have downloaded the latest firmware but a BIN file is not executable and DLink does not provide an executable file for this task. I am hoping to get the firmware up from v1.03 to 2.00 and thereby eliminate all of the...

IDE drive not recognized. by dbacs
I have an Ultra ATA 100 drive that will not install in BIOS or Vista 32 ultimate OS. I have support on my motherboard for 66/100/133 pata (as well as sata II). I have all updated drivers for the motherboard. I'm using VIA's Hyperion Pro drivers. I think my problem is setting jumpers in the drive. I've tried the drive on both primary master and slave, and secondary primary and slave buses. ...

USB card reader works in XP not in vista? by james
I have a SDHC usb card reader like this: http://www.meritline.com/card-reader-high-speed-black---p-18762.aspx It works fine under win XP, but in vista, it's flaky. The LED won't turn off when I "safely remove" it. Sometimes it froze when reading or writing. What could be the problem?

Moive Maker by Tia Rivera
I am trying to download my video from my camera. It appears to be downloading. I can see the picture from the camera on the screen and when I click on 'finish' an error appears and reads: "The video was not imported correctly. Verify that the digital video tape is not blank, and then try again." I try again and the message appears again. The tape is definitely not blank. I am able to see...

need driver for Olympus D-520 zoom camera by ripsnort
I've an Olympus D-520 camera (came across on the Mayflower) and when I insert the Disk, it wants to install Quicktime 5. I didn't know if I should allow that, so I didn't go any further. I've been looking for a Vista compatible driver for this but can't find anything. Can anyone steer me in the right direction as to what I should or can do, other than hurling the camera out to a third world...

I am new to using a Windows Mobile device and Sync Center. I have successfully synced what I needed, but there are times when all I want to do is work with the device in Windows Explorer. However, every time I connect the device Sync Center completes a sync faster than I can turn off the Sync. I have tried to click Stop All before I connect t to no avail. If I end the partnership, all the...

Vista x64 only partiallly wakes from Sleep by mazman
When I try to bring my x64 Vista Ultimate machine out of sleep mode, the power button (which is already blinking) blinks more rapidly, the CPU and case fans go on, the hard drive spins up, but the machine never wakes. There's also no video on the screen. I've tried troubleshooting by disabling screensavers, unnessary services, startup programs, etc. but I still have the same problem. I even...

Suggestion for small office NAS by BrianB
I have a customer that has requested a recommendation for network attached storage for their small office (four computers). I've tried Google but have come up with so many conflicting reviews that it's frustrating. Some say a box is fast, other say the same one is a dog. I'm hoping for some help. They tried a Western Digital My Book World Edition 1TB NAS. It worked fine until they upgraded...

What dvd burner works in Vista x64? by AutoCog
Most posts want advice on how to resolve an issue with existing hardware or software. I'm asking for advice on what to buy to avoid any issues. I need a SATA DVD burner for my new x64 build. So far I just have the case, power supply, and processor. In my wish list is the RAM, MB, HD, and OS. Each has been verified to at least "work" with x64 Vista according to the MS compatibility list. Now I'm...

Preconfigured driver installation by Justin
This is driving my insane. Windows used to be able to automatically locate default drivers and install them quietly in the background. I recently mucked around with the bluetooth stack and managed to install the WIDCOMM bluetooth stack. Now, whenever I plug in a new device, the new hardware found wizard starts, rather than the icon in the system tray simply appearing. When I choose the...

Interpretation of ReadyBoost drive activity by whturner
I have a new Gateway cpu i7 920 Desktop with Vista 64 and 3G Ram. When I borrow my FAST flashdrive from my portable and use it in my desktop, ReadyBoost recommends reserving 3830 Mb for optimum speed. It is apparently useful, as the access light on the Flash Drive shows a fair amount of activity. My questions a 1) Does that activity prove I should increase Ram? I am not a gamer, but I do...
