Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I have an Archos AV500, and sometimes (increasingly often) when I try to copy large avi files (>1GB), it comes up with an error saying it cannot copy the file because "the device has either stopped responding or has been disconnected". I can always predict when this is going to happen, as when I initiate the copy from the PC, using Win Explorer, the HDD light blinks rapidly on the Archos, then stops blinking, and I never get an estimated copy time in the copy dialog on the PC; if it is going to work, the HDD light on the Archos stays just about ******* and I quickly get up a copy time estimate. I have applied the latest firmware to the Archos. I am running Vista Business on the PC. Small files seem to copy OK. I copied one >1GB avi from the Archos to the PC (no problem), then tried copying it back and hit the error.

I dont know how well this will work but you can always archive it using WinRAR or 7-Zip or something to make it small enough to copy over? If that would work it seems that it might be one of the only solutions.

Increase gmail account space ....




How to find large e-mails/attachments in GMail and delete them easily?

Many a times, you are struck with a scenario that only a last few % of free space is avilable in Gmail. Though GMail has been growing everyday (or every 2 seconds) in increasing your online storage space - but yet for a person like me who has been using GMail for more than 5 years now as a primary e-mail account, it does become full at many a times.


Today my Gmail account read as "You are currently using 6538 MB (88%) of your 7429 MB.". Now that was a bit worrying for me and decided to bring it down atleast by 5% and here's what I did for it.


Head over to the search bar on top of your Gmail account and type as "has:attachment (*.mov || .mp3 || *.wm || *.avi || *.wmv )" and the results you get could be the large file attachments that are sitting in your GMail account and making it bulky. Evaluate if you need it else you can select them and delete.


To find large zipped attachments use this search option.
has:attachment (
.zip || .rar || *.7z )


To find large pdf / doc / xls / ppt / docx / pptx / xlsx attachments use this search option.
has:attachment (
.pdf || *.doc || *.docx || *.xls || *.xlsx || *.ppt || *.pptx )
Usually ppt / pptx are large culprits too.


P.S: After you delete the mail and attachment, it still remains in your GMail Trash folder. So go over to that folder and hit "Empty Trash". Now you can finally see some very good increase in the storage area of your Gmail account.


As for me, it went upto "You are currently using 6138 MB (82%) of your 7429 MB." which was a pretty good increase for me.

A large percentage of the time that a computer "blue screens" is because the RAM (memory) has gone bad. Sometimes it's an indicator of a failing hard drive, cpu, or several hardware failures. Can't really say for sure without actually taking a look at it. The cheapest and easiest way is to start checking your RAM. I suggest buying a 512MB or 1GB stick of ram, and then try replacing the existing RAM. If you aren't confident in opening up your computer then I would take it to a shop for them to check it out. madhattercomputers.com

New computer dell inspiron 570 running windows 7-connected for 3 days. came back to use it this afternoon and the media player has lost it's sound and you can hardly hear the PC -the system tells me =media...


Microsoft Windows Media Player is a free media player software that comes with the personal computer version of Windows operating systems. The software supports basic file formats such as WMV, WMA, AVI, MP3, and ASF. The player included in Windows XP gives you the power to create your own CDs, search and organize digital media on your PC, and copy files to portable devices such as CDs and pen drives.
Fix Windows Media Player Problems
Corrupted and missing DLLs files, incorrect registry entries, and outdated files are some of the causes of Windows Media Player errors. Covered here are a few steps that you can take to fix common problems.
C00D11CD: Unknown Error
C00D11CD errors occur when an operating system component or some other program encounters an error and does not communicate it to Windows Media Player. Due to its generic nature and multiple reasons for occurrence, there is no specific solution to this problem.
If you encounter the error when trying to play an AVI or MPEG 2 file, then most likely, you do not have the correct codec version installed on your system. To fix a Windows Media Player problem related to codec, search for the required codec on the Internet, download it, and update it on your system to play the required file.
Windows Media Player uses Digital Rights Management (DRM) to authorize copying files to a CD or to download them from an online music store. If you do not have DRM authority to copy a particular song, you will not be able to play it and the error will pop up.
Windows Media Player uses the wmadmoe.dll file to encode files. If something goes wrong with this file, you may get the c00d11cd error when you try to copy songs from a CD to your hard disk. To fix a Windows Media Player problem in this situation, you must register the DLL file by running the command ‘regsvr32 wmadmoe.dll’.
80040155: Interface Not Registered
If this error occurs when you try to burn songs into a CD, then the most probable cause is that the required player files are no longer registered on your system. To fix this error, try to reinstall your Windows Media Player or download and install a newer version of the player, if available on the internet.
800C2EE2: Action timed out
This error occurs when your Windows Media Player is unable to connect to a server due to problem in the network, and therefore cannot play protected audio/video files that you download from an online music store. Incorrect Internet Explorer security settings might be the cause of this problem. To fix this, open Internet Explorer and select Tools-Internet Options-LAN Settings. Next, clear the Automatically detect settings check box.
C00D0FAA: Cannot rip the files
The error usually occurs when you try to rip CDs to MP3 format. Existence of entries from an earlier player version in the registry might be the reason behind this problem. One way to fix this problem is by adjusting the audio quality. However, if you want to maintain the audio quality, then to fix this Windows Media Player problem, open the Registry Editor by running the Regedit command and navigate to the subkey given below.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Sett ings\MP3Encoding
Here, open ‘LowrateSample’ and delete the value displayed in the Value Data box. Select OK and exit Registry Editor.
Many times errors also occur when there are corrupt files on the system or there are invalid DLL entries and other related incorrect entries in the system registry. For this, you must try to download reliable registry cleaner software from the Internet and scan your registry for invalid entries. Using registry cleaner software, you can easily and efficiently fix Windows registry problems, and make your PC free from irritating errors.
Errors can occur in Windows Media Player due to outdated files, missing or corrupt DLL files and incorrect registry entries. Most of the time, you can fix Windows Media Player problems by updating missing files or by upgrading the player to a later version. Additionally, to prevent registry-related problems, you can use a registry cleaner software to regularly scan the registry and eliminate invalid DLL entries and corrupt values from it.

I want to burn some CDs), but I can't copy the files, I keep getting a message that windows is having a problem copying the file.


Hi,

These 2 articles from Microsoft should give you all the info you need :)

Read this one first:

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/setup/learnmore/bott_03september16.mspx


If the above does not help there is a more advanced article here:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/324129

In summary free up at-least 1gb of hard drive space and set your burner to a lower write speed, If this doesn't work it may just be that your burner is getting old and needs to be replaced.

Also the program "NERO Burning ROM" has an option to verify the data after it has been written, I recommend you get a copy of this and use it instead of the Windows XP burning because of this feature.

Hope this helps :)

Good Luck.

Live. Love, Laugh.
