Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas also uses Securom copy protection software.

Please read the below mentioned. The same solution which I had posted for the game Juiced.

The solution is the same for all games using Securom copy protection software.

Securom is a copy protection software that sometimes conflicts with any background applications,multiple disc drives, virtual drives, USB storage devices (Pen drivesand USB Hard drives).

This however can be solved once you submit a analysis file to the Securom Support.

To extract the Analysis file you can follow the below mentioned.

Open Game folder
Locate "GTA_SA.EXE" file and then right-click on it context menu will appear
Select "Launch Analysis" within that menu
After the selection a disclaimer window will appear on your screen, to proceed, click the "YES" button
This 'analysis' will now generate an 'AnalysisLog.sr0' file within the root directory your C: drive.

Go to your "C" drive to locate the "AnalysisLog.sr0" file and zip the file compression utility programs such as WinZip, Winace or Pkzip

-Submit the Zip file to: support@securom.com for evaluation along with "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas " in subject line.

Securom support will then analyze the file for conflicts and send you a new executable file. Once you have the new file, extract and paste the executable file in the root directory of the game.

Cannot play dvd


Since Windows XP, Microsoft failed to include the necessary codec to read and play DVDs. This was due to a licensing issue between Microsoft and someone else (maybe the people who owned the rights to the MP2 codec, or something like that). Anyway, the quick, easy, and free fix is to download VLC Media player from videolan.org. Just google vlc player, and choose the first hit that is from videolan.org. go there, and download it. Once you have it installed, you may have to tell it to open the disk with File->open disk, or something like that. It is a great player, and will play just about anything.

Having trouble opening Photo Explosion 3


This may be an issue of a losst file or corrupted file with in the program itself. You might try uninstalling it and then reinstalling it to correct the issue. You may also try the following steps to see if it helps the issue.

clear out your C:\WINDOWS\TEMP directory (this is a storage area where files are stored before they are installed). Delete everything in this file, and your problem may be solved completely.
If this does not work, you may also need to clear out your Internet cache (temporary Internet files):
(Internet Explorer)
1. Open Internet Explorer.
2. Click on Tools -> Internet Options.
3a. In IE6 - Click on the 'Delete Files...' button on the Genral Tab
3b. In IE7 - Click on the 'Delete' button under the Browsing History section of the General Tab.
(Mozilla Firefox)
1. Open Firefox.
2. Click on Tools -> Options
3. Click on the Advanced tab -> Network Tab.
4. Click on the 'Clear Now' button under the Cache section.

- Empty your recycle bin

- Run Scandisk
1. Click Start->Programs->Accessories->System Tools
2. Select Scandisk
3. Select your hard drive. If you have more than one, you should scan each drive individually.
4. Click Standard
5. Check Automatically fix errors.
6. Click Start

- Run Defrag
1. Click Start->Programs->Accessories->System Tools
2. Select Disk Defragmenter
3. Select the hard drive you wish to defrag and click ok.

- Before attempting to install the game, make sure that you have no programs running in the background or system tray.
(Windows XP / Vista)
Go to the Start menu, (and choose Run if using XP). Delete anything on the Open line that you'll find there, and type in the work MSCONFIG. Click on OK, and that will bring up a program called the System Configuration Utility.
Look down the list of startup items (not the tab labeled Startup), and choose Selective Startup (if it is not already selected). If you don't see this, make sure you've clicked on General, near the top of the window. Once you've chosen Selective Startup, uncheck 'Load Startup Items', and leave 'Process System.INI file' and 'Process Win.INI file' checked. Once you're done here, click OK, and let it reboot your computer.
Your Windows environment may look different and you may get an error relating to your sound device not working (ignore this for now). Try running the game again. If the game loads and seems to be working, the problem is most likely related to one or more programs you have scheduled to load with Windows. You can then revert the settings back the way they were, and in a trial and error fashion, disable some programs using the startup tab (in the msconfig utility) to try to find the culprit.

(Windows 98/ME)
Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to bring up the close program window. End all open tasks EXCEPT Explorer and systray.

- If you still have problems installing, you may not have the necessary hard disk space to install the game. You will need to clean out unnecessary files on your hard drive or otherwise allocate more space if you wish to install and play.

- Try a safemode install.
1. Copy the contents of the disc to a new folder on your desktop.
2. Restart Windows in Safe Mode.
3. Run setup.exe from the setup folder in the new folder you created on your desktop.
4. Restart the computer in normal mode and try the game.

- If all else fails, your game disk may be scratched or damaged.
1. Inspect the underside of the CD closely.
2. If their are any smudge marks, dirt, or scratches, clean the disk.
NOTE: When cleaning CDs, wipe from the center of the disc to the edge using a soft, lint-free cotton cloth. Do not use a circular motion. Also, do not use paper cloth which can scratch the plastic and leave streaks.
3. Insert the CD and try installing again.
NOTE: Many common install problems are caused by scratched or damaged disks. If you think your game disk is damaged and needs to be replaced, please contact a Support Representative (Ask a Question tab above) to obtain replacement information as well as an RMA number.

I hope this answers your question.
Thank you for visiting FixYa for your solutions.

Im trying to download music creator 4 into my comp and when i put it in nothin happens. what am i doing wrong?


Well, this is a simple problem.
You probably have auto-run disabled. So, go to "computer" and you should see your hard disk drives, and anything else connected or inside your computer. Once Music Creator 4 appears, double click it and it should run. Hope I helped in some way. :)

You laptop may need a upgrade and may not have the recommended hardware, space e.t.c. look on the back of the game box and see if your laptop meets the requirements, if not then you will need to upgrade that part in order to get the game to work.

First of all, you should not even mention that is a cracked version, I will fake I did not hear that. I am sure you installed the pirate version only to test it on your computer, and you will buy the original if this works.

Regarding the games here are the specification:

Minimum System Requirements:
You must have these minimum system specifications for the game to function correctly. We do not provide support for configurations that do not meet the minimum requirements.
  • Operating System: Microsoft Windows® 2000/XP (Windows 95/98/ME/NT Not Supported)
  • CPU: Pentium 4 1.5Ghz or Athlon XP Equivalent
  • RAM: 512MB
  • Graphics: 100% DirectX 9.0c compatible video card which supports Hardware TnL and Pixel Shader 2.0 (GeForce FX / Radeon 9500 or higher)
  • Sound: 100% DirectX 9.0c Compatible Sound Card
  • DVD-Rom: Quad-speed (4x) Dvd-Rom Drive
  • Hard Drive: 5.0GB free disk space
  • Input Devices: 100% Windows 2000/XP compatible Mouse and Keyboard (Gamepads and controller are not supported)
Recommended System requirements:
  • CPU: Pentium 4 2.4Ghz or Athlon XP/64-bit equivalent
  • RAM: 1024MB
  • Graphics: ATI X800 series, Nvidia GeForce 6800 series or higher video card
  • Sound: 100% DirectX 9.0c Compatible Sound Card, Sound Blaster X-Fi series
  • DVD-Rom: Eight-speed (8x) DVD-Rom drive or faster
  • Hard Drive: 5.0GB free disk space
This game requires a CPU of at least 2.4 Ghz and a powerful video card, such as
ATI X800 series, Nvidia GeForce 6800 series or higher.

You also need
DirectX 9.0c installed, that may be the reason why it does not start.
Try downloading
DirectX 9.0c here, if it does not work, then, providing that CPU is good enough, you will need to upgrade video adapter or get a new computer.

Download from here and install:
Download details: DirectX End-User Runtime
or
Download details: DirectX 9.0c Redistributable for Software Developers

Sometimes you need an overpowered computer to play latest games, standard computers are usually not powerful enough for new games, that is the reason why they invented Xbox and PS.

No audio when i try to play tunes in itunes


FIRST try the simple solutions. Check if your speaker wires are plugged into the proper ports.
If you are unsure, it won't hurt to try different configurations.
(If you hear sound from other devises such as plating a CD of the "Microsoft Sound" when starting up or shutting down, then the speakers are wired correctly.)
If this is OK then try...
Go to your "Device Manager" (Right click on  'My Computer', select 'Properties', click the 'Hardware' tab, click the 'Device Manager' button. Click the "Sound video and game controllers"). If there is some kind of a "Warning" icon superimposed on the 'speaker' icon there is your problem!
If no "Warning" icons then try...

One at a time...
Double click on each of the devises that have 'Audio' in the listings.
Click the "Properties" tab, look for any "Warning" icons
Uninstall the DRIVERS for THAT DEVICE only. See instructions below.
Click on the faulty devise and hit the remove button, follow the instructions given by the program.
Shutdown, restart, the device will automatically reinstall by the "Found New Hardware" program.
