DOSBOX THREAD ISSUE

I, have a game called, WINGNUTS on CD-ROM, it came out in 1996, it's a WW1 dogfighting game. However, I, have a XP laptop, and a brand -still in the box VISTA gaming desktop too, but anyway, I'm trying to use DOSBOX emulater to play the game, but as soon as it starts to load up , it will show the logo and start up bar; Then I get an ERROR message saying: "THREAD HAS WENT TO SLEEP". I, have a computer company called: My Computer works.com; One of the tech's remotely logged on my laptop, but he couldn't figure it out. Do you think you can help?

P.S. I, have a region free DVD/VCR combo, but I'm very unhappy with it. I, had to exchange this one at least once and another one I have (JVC-DR-MV77S) once, or twice. So, I saw a blog about hacks for region locked DVD players/recorders, in particular, I was thinking of getting a SAMSUNG DVD-VR375, but I was told by a person on the internet that is a representive of a online company that sells DVD unlock codes that, because SAMSUNG has been sued over the past few years, that they will no longer sell machines,(at least the newer ones) that can be unlocked in the US-region 1. However, the man tells me that units sold in the UK, and Europe can be ulocked. So, if I where to go buy the Samsung model-will I be able to unlock it using the procedure givin on the FIXYA blog?

Also, is it possible to get a converter box that will automatically make ANY and ALL DVD players/recorders able to play ANY and ALL DVD discs? Can you recommend a brand, and or model?

Cheers!

    I'm STILL having problems using DOSBOX . I'm STILL getting an error message-"THREAD WENT TO SLEEP" when I'm trying to run A DOS/ windows 95' compatible game called Wignuts.

    Can ANYONE please help me with this?

    Is there another DOS emulator that's better, and easier to use?

    Should I buy a Windows 95' modem?

    Sincerely,

    Bob Napper

1.
Right-click the program icon on your desktop or the shortcut on the Start menu for the program you want to run, and then click Properties.
2.
Click the Compatibility tab, and change the compatibility settings for your program.

    encountered the exact same problem when my kids tried to run an antique
    DOS-based game (ID Software's Commander Keen). Not long after the SP2
    update, the game stopped working, complaining that the Autoexec.nt file
    "is not suitable." A quick look at the C:\Windows \System32 folder
    revealed that the Autoexec.nt file had totally disappeared. The
    contents of the file don't necessarily matter, but if it's missing,
    you'll get a problem. Fortunately, it's easy to replace.

    Launch Notepad, enter "@ECHO OFF" (no quotes), press Enter at the
    end of the line, and save the file as C:\Windows\System32\ Autoexec.nt.
    When saving, put the filename in quotes; otherwise Notepad may give it
    the filename Autoexec.nt.txt. Now try the program. If it still doesn't
    work, reopen the Autoexec.nt file and add the following lines:

    lh %SystemRoot%\system32\mscdexnt.exe

    lh %SystemRoot%\system32\redir

    lh %SystemRoot%\system32\dosx

    SET BLASTER=A220 I5 D1 P330 T3

    That should do the job

Go to control panel---programs---programs and features... you will see "use an older program with this version of windows"
Select that and run the wizard... look for the program that is giving you problems and run it as xp compatability... or possibly and older operating system... experiment till you find the one it needs... or if you have the box for that program it will say what requirements it needs

You can not. You need a multi region player or by the specific region player

CD Rom does not work HELP!


Typically these drives don't need an extra driver, as windows detects them automatically. The first thing I'd recommend trying is to right click it's entry with the exclamation mark and uninstall it. Once uninstalled, reboot the pc. It should install correctly then. If it doesn't, there may be an issue with the IDE controller it's connected to (usually a bios setting determining raid/ide mode).

I just bought an LG BD-550 and I want to make it region free. How?


Hi.

Try the solution below:

"To set DVD Region to "any", download file "6000.zip" (often also called "LG6000.zip") from this link:

http://www.multi-region.net/_media/6000.zip

Save the file and then unzip and extract it to your hard drive. Now burn the subdirectory RMTM0000 and its contents (not the text file) onto a CD-ROM (ISO format, "closed" CD-ROM). Insert CD-ROM into the LG BD 370 P player, and when the Region Management System screen is displayed, set the Region Code to "0" using your remote. Once done, press "PAUSE" on you remote to save, and you're done!"

I can't get Terminator Salvation Blue ray to play on my LG BD370


Its a known issue. There is a firmware update available from the LG website. Download the file LG_BD_370M_UPG_LG_V7154.zip and follow the instruction from the website. It solved the issue for me.

Firmware update for Element Blu-ray player


Sorry to bring up an old thread but I couldn't solve the problem with these solutions. I tried a DVD, I tried 3 CD's burned from 2 different computers, I waited for 5 minutes, I waited for 5 hours. Nothing worked. So I used my work computer that is running XP and it worked perfectly. So if you are burning the disk from a vista computer I don't think it will work.
