Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Somehow the DCIM and MISC folders on my camera memory card have become .scr files, and in 'TYPE' it says "DWG trueView Script". I have no idea why, and they will not open or copy to my computer. There are probably about 2000 photo's on the card (2mb) which I can view from the camera. All I want to do is get the images on to my computer. Please help! Thanks Nick

    It's a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS3.



    Yes I still have the CD that the camera came with, it contains a program called photofunSTUDIO for viewing, an ARCSoft software suite, quicktime and adobe reader, but this hasn't helped me so far.



    Initially they were not SCR files but folders containing JPEGS, somehow they have changed and I'm not sure how or why.

    Thanks, your right I got them imported. Had just never encountered that before, always thought you could just copy them over without the software, pretty dumb on my part, cheers.

    try to re-install the stduio software. it should rev back to Jpeg files.

    .scr is screen saver files.

    go to the vendor web site, find the software for the camera and download the image files.

    the files in your camera did not change. just the software that reads the file changed.



    did you try to put one of the pic on the desk top????

Acer aspire t 180 cant get pc to recognize digital camera photo memory card


Has the computer recognized the memory card in the past? If so, try download and reinstalling the memory card driver.

Get online and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "Acer Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Download and install the Card Reader drivers.



If after installing the drivers the reader still does not work, you can purchase a multi format card reader that will plug into you usb port from Tiger Direct for less than $15. at



http://www.tigerdirect.com



When the site comes up just put in the search at the top "SD Card Reader or XD Card Reader" depending you your type and press GO. You can sort the returned results by Price Low to High.



Do you have a USB Cable that came with the camera that you can plug into one of the usb ports on the computer? If so, try that. It's another way of getting pictures off the camera. Plug the cable on the camera and into the computer then turn the camera on. The computer will recognize the camera and install the drivers. You can navigate through the camera folders just like you do any other device to find the pictures.

Removing Write Protection


Trouble:
In the past we had received so many problems from the readers who have a problem in copying files on their USB portable devices like pen drives, memory card and iPod etc.
usbdrivewriteprotected_thumb.gif
According to the mails we had received about this problem, people have seen the following errors when their thumbs drives, memory card etc becomes write protected.
  • Cannot copy files and folders, drive is write protected
  • Cannot format the drive, drive is write protected
  • The disk is write protected
  • Remove write protection or use another disk
  • Media is write protected
Some times people say that suddenly their drive become write protected and they are not able to delete any files and folder on the drive and also not able to copy new files and folder to USB portable drive.
Let’s see how can you remove write protection on your portable devices like pen drives, memory cards, iPod and other USB mass storage devices.
Fix:
Write Protection on any portable USB Device can be applied by the physical lock provided on the card adjuster or some times provided on the pen drives, so make sure to make your drive not write protected by moving the lock in right direction.
But even after moving the physical lock for write protection the problem can happen due to some virus action. This happens when some virus or script which applies the registry hack to make any drive write protect when connected to the computer, In that case follow the procedure below to remove write protection from your pen drive.
1. Open Start Menu >> Run, type regedit and press Enter, this will open the registry editor.
2. Navigate to the following path:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies

Note: If the registry key StorageDevicePolicies key does not exist, you will need to create it
Download this batch file called add.bat from here, and double click after download the key will be automatically added to registry.

3. Double click the key WriteProtect in the right pane and set the value to 0 in the Value Data Box and press OK button disablewriteprotection_thumb.png

google_protectAndRun("ads_core.google_render_ad", google_handleError, google_render_ad);

4. Exit Registry, restart your computer and then again re-connect your USB pen drive on your computer. That is it, done.
In case you still find an issue, please leave a comment below.

Updated on 28th May 2009
After a lot of user comments telling that the above method does not work for them, we tell you another method which you can follow to solve the “Pen Drive is Write Protected” problem.
If the above method does not work for you, follow the below steps:
1. Copy all the important data from this drive to your computer because this method will format the drive and erase all the data on the pen drive.
2. Now download the Apacer Formatting Utility, Unzip this utility to a folder on your hard disk, preferably on a folder on desktop screen for easy access (Do Not Try To Save it on pen drive). Keep your pen drive plugged in, and double click on the Start.bat file in the folder where you unzipped the above utility. This will start formatting your pen drive, wait till the formatting completes and the LED on your pen drive stops blinking. Remove your pen drive after than and plug it in again.
The above two steps will solve the problem. If you still face the problem, follow the below steps:
1. Goto Start > Run, type cmd and press enter, this will open command prompt.
2. Type the following command on the command prompt replacing X with the drive letter of your pen drive.
CHKDSK X: /F
The above two methods will help you fix the problem.
Note: For all those who are out of luck in fixing the problem with their portable drives, I would suggest you to get your drives checked or replaced by the manufacturer to fix it for you

I put my memory card into laptop, message says my card is full, and yet i delete my pics from camera., do i have to delete from memory card also, if so how do i do that.


Did you delete the pictures from the internal camera memory and not the SD card? An easy way to solve this problem would be to insert the card into your computer and open up "My Computer". In here you should see your memory card mounted as a usable drive. Open up the SD card, select everything in it by pressing "Control" + "A" and then hitting delete. This will clean everything off of the card. If you want to save the files from the card first, simply make a folder somewhere on your PC and drag all of the files from the SD card into that folder after pressing "Control" + "A". If you are still getting an error stating your card is full after removing them this way you may need to re-format the card or it may be malfunctioning.

I need to down load pic of my camra


Was there are cable came w. camera? Usually a mini usb cable... don't have to be the original cable as long as they are the same type of connectors. Connect the camera to pc w. cable and power up the camera.. that should start up Microsoft picture import or external storage. If it opens MS picture import follow the direction on the pop up window. If exteranl storage, open folder to view files, then select and copy paste to your pc. If all your pictures are saved on memory card, you could just pop the memory card out of camera and insert to mem. card reader in your pc or laptop and copy and paste or move them. this won't do anything or pictures save on cameras built in memory.

How to write script in 2003 domaincontroller


lease follow steps to resolve your issue

First, open "Active Directory Users and Computers" on the domain controller

Now right click on the user you want to have the logon script and select the properties menu.
A properties dialog like the one shown below will appear. Select the ‘Profile’ Tab

Here is the confusing part. If I just put any old batch file name in the logon script field, where does windows try to find it from?
Lets find out. First, type in this field ‘logon.bat’
Click OK.
Now, we need to find the folder where the server loads logon scripts. It follows this format:
\\(SERVERNAME)\sysvol\(DOMAIN NAME)\scripts
So, if my server was named DCServer1, and my domain was intelliadmin.com, we would browse to this path:
\\DCServer1\sysvol\intelliadmin.com\scripts

Now that we know where to put it, creating the script is easy. Just open up notepad, and write your batch file. For our test batch file we will put in a line that loads our profile generator for Microsoft Outlook XP

We are done with the script, so we save the text file as:
\\DCServer1\sysvol\intelliadmin.com\scripts\logon.bat
Now, the next time this user logs in, they will load the login script.
hope it can resolved your issue
thanks

I can view my pictures off my memory card from my cell phone but i cannot view or even access any videos stored on my memory card. I want to watch the videos. Help please and be specific because i am not...


The videos are probably in motion JPEG format and it's common for camera and cellphone makers to somehow create a proprietary format for their files. If your cellphone model has a codec for PCs install that and the PC will be able to suss out what to do with those files. What are the filenames, anyhow?

Become more computer literate by installing a program (typically free, e.g. from searching on VersionTracker or otherwise) that identifies file types and you can perhaps find some handy utilities (free or shareware or otherwise) which can help you edit and transcode the video. See also MPlayer HQ. Contrawise you could search for programs that work on your cellphone's application processor to reencode or use data on the phone; you can take a shot of the barcode on some tea for example, and a program would look up whether you (for example) liked it last time or not.
