  • 2. SOT: HP Advisor
    Sorry if this post is a bit off topic, but I have just bought a 64 bit Windows 7 computer. I see there is an application called HP Advisor. I don't see the point of it so far. Does it actually do anything that you would not routinely do yourself, eg Microsoft updates, checking for new versions of programs, checking for new drivers and backing up the computer, to list the obvious? I am tempted to disable this.
  • 3. Libraries?
    I have always put my pictures/videos in the same place since way back and now there is those same places but also Libraries. So where do I store my pictures/music/videos and if still in the old place how do I make Libraries also see it without putting it in two places which I have now. Now each time I open a folder I'm seeing the same dated picture folder twice. I guess I have screwed up so what next?

Go to the Microsoft web site:  www.microsoft.com and enter the error 
code you have listed below.  You can then browse the results and see 
which is most likely to apply to your situation.

Which version of PowerDVD are you using?? I have he same app that came with
my dvd reader a few years back and it wont run either.

I did have success with playback of dvd's in WiMP 9. Can you roll back to
that??

Rich:
WMP9 isn't x64 compatable, WMP10 comes with x64. Power DVD 5 & 6 are 
compatible with x64. Remember this is a x64 newsgroup, what works with x86 
doesn't always work with x64.

Rich:

            Support is available in most areas, it just takes time and 
research. AV form Norton or McAfee is only supported on the corporate level, 
I use Nod32 which in most areas is superior and much less obtrusive. 
Printers are finally coming online with drivers for many models. Web-cams 
are lagging behind. I'm running totally x64 including video capture, 
scanning and faxing, I don't use a web-cam and have been for over 6 months 
without any issues. I started using x64 2 years ago with the CPP releases, 
at that time it was a daily search for functional drivers.

PowerDVD 5 works fine on x64.  PowerProducer installs but doesn't recognise 
any writeable drives.
Read Charlie's blog on whom x64 is appropriate for.   Unless you need it, 
why spend the time and money now.  Stick with what you have and wait for 
Vista.

1.Optical DVD drive quits working and external DVD drive not accessible

have an ASUS G50VT notebook that is 3 weeks old and I am running Vista
Home Premium 64bit for my OS. My ODD was working jsut fine, now I can
not read anything. In Explorer I can see the drive, but it does not read
anything. I have unistalled the drive several times and rebooted, but
did not work, I have also tried to edit the registry, but lower filters
and upper filters are not listed to delete. After reading some other
forums and also talking to Geek Squad they all said that my drive is bad
and needs to be replaced. 

With that thought in mind I have an older external NEC dvd burner that
I hooked up to my new computer and the nc does the same thing with this
drive, but when I hook it up to my old notebook (dell inspiron 1150
using XP) it works fine. This leads me to believe that possibly my
problem is with Vista, but I do not know what to do. Can anyone help me
please.

Thank You

2.Software no longer sees my DVD drives as DVD drives

Maybe somebody here can point me in the correct direction...

OK I had 'DEMO' version of Nero-6 installed and did not like it due to the
way that their media player took over my system and uninstalled the
software. [Did not install InCD]

When I did the uninstall all of a sudden I loss function of my built-in
Win-XP Drag-N-Drop to CD-R/RW media..

Also Windows Explorer only displays both of my DVD drives as CD drives.

Now my "Cyberlink" 'PowerDVD//Director/Producer' software no longer sees my
DVD drives as DVD drives.. will not playback or write to the DVD+R/RW drive!

I have tried a number of "FIXES" from running a patch for MISSING CD-R/RW
drives to deleting "FILTERS" in the registry with no luck.

I have even tried to reinstall NERO-6 using a "OEM" copy that came with my
DVD+RW drive...

Yet I am for a loss..

Nero will burn DVD+ media from DVD files written to harddrive.
Ulead's DVD MovieFactory-2 seems to run just fine... as long as I start up
Nero first and make sure that the "BOOK TYPE" is not set to "DVD-ROM"... if
the 'BOOK TYPE' is set to "DVD-ROM" my set-top boxes do not see the finished
disc as a DVD-VIDEO disc...

This topic has been "talked about" [in the Microsoft Newsgroups] as
happening to a number of users when they uninstall some sort of
CD/DVD-/+R/RW burning software on their Windows XP systems.

Short of doing a reformat of my harddrive does anybody know of any fixes to
correctly identify my drives to all software?

With the large number of sources of information around.. maybe I am looking
at the wrong source 'and/or' using the wrong search phrases in 'Google'

4.Drive acts as DVD drive for cd and CD Drive for dvd off and on

My disk drive says all my drivers are up to date, so that's not the problem. 
I have a brand new Toshiba satellite notebook and I'm running Vista Home 
Premium. Every so often when I put in a cd-rw to copy some files, only the D: 
drive - the DVD burner shows and it formats as a DVD. Vice versa with the 
DVD-RW: it shows only the E: drive - the CD-RW drive. I can't figure out how 
to tell this computer which media it's supposed to be recognizing. Can 
someone help??
