Question about Samsung DVD-VR375 DVD Recorder/VCR

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,

    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

Cant enter the game on pc


First here are the minimum requirements needed to run it:
  • Windows XP
  • Pentium III 800 or AMD Athlon 700 MHz processor or faster
  • 256 MB of RAM
  • 1.1 GB free Hard Disk space
  • 8X CD-ROM drive or faster
  • 32 MB DirectX 8.1 compatible 3D Video Card (64 MB recommended)
  • DirectX 8.1 compatible Sound Card
  • DirectX 8.1 or higher
  • 56 Kbps or better Internet connection or LAN multiplayer


My guess is you are trying to run it on vista or windows 7 though and since this game came out in 2001 it's a pretty old game and if you are trying to run it on Vista and Windows 7 you will encounter problems. Download a copy of Dosbox or Virtualbox and use it to run your games. They work very well for older games..

I have lighthouse/darkbeing 1996 and it will not install on my computer I have windows7 on mty laptop


This is an old program (DOS/Windows 3). It will not be compatible with a Windows 7 computer. (If you have the 64-bit version, you probably will have even more compatibility issues.)

Try using the program DOSbox, a DOS emulator: http://www.dosbox.com/download.php?main=1 . Download the Windows version (it will work under Win7 x64 and 32-bit). Install the program then see if you can install the game. If that doesn't work, you will need a program that can make a .iso (image) of the CD. A possible option is MagicISO Maker: http://www.magiciso.com/download.htm . Save the iso to your hard disc and then mount the image in DOSbox . This is a two-step process much like in UNIX. You will need to mount the hard drive and then mount the image. The commands would look like: mount c "c:\images"
imgmount d "C:\Lighthouse.iso" -t iso
Then go to the D drive and run the game as you did when you played on your previous computer.

I hope this helps.

I now believe that my problem could be that my 14 year old golf game requires a Vesa driver which is not on my HP pavilion zd8000 laptop with XP. Although vesa is supplied on the CD golf game I cannot get...


You could try running the game trough DosBox, which is a good way to get older games to run, or VDMSound, which lets you run them in a windows dos shell.
Hope that helps.

I have a copy of starcon 3 but it won't install on my computer my os is windows 7 but it says that the game isn't compatable with my version of windows


Hi, welcome to Fixya. I hope my info helps you.
What it said is true. Starcon 3 is an OLD game, with compatability with win 95, and DOS. I think there may be a way for you to get to work though, right click on the installer program, and put the program in compatability mode, and tell it win 95 for the o.s. If that doesn't work, then download a program called DOSBOX, and run the installer with it, Dosbox is designed for just this sort of thing.
I hope that you do get it to work, as Starcon 3 was a really good game when it came out.

Cant run Sierra, Lighthouse: The dark Being on my laptop. i have a Vista ops. Ive tried using dosbox but cant get passed installing it using that. and i get and error 142: when just using windows


Hello, You can play the Lighthouse game on Vista / Seven by installing this software :http://www.squirtthecat.com/games/lighthouse/index.html

I used it but at one step of the game, the sounds bugs and I get an error.
So I used the DOSBOX version, installed with this link :http://www.sierrahelp.com/Files/NewInstallers/LighthouseForDOSBox.exe

I managed to install Lighthouse for Dosbox (I had the ISO, not the CD), chosing "local install", and mounting the iso on a F: virtual drive. Then I had to change a line in the dosbox.conf file :in [autoexec], old line : mount d -t cdrom -ioctl
new line : mount d F:\ -t cdrom -ioctl
Now I can play Lighthouse on Vista ok.
Good luck !

Lost Mind of Dr Brain


There is a simple solution to this problem, making the game runnable on any current windows operating system.

Simply insert the CD into the drive. Then open My Computer, right click on the Dr. Brain disk and click open. After you have the game files open, right click on the executable file named "DRBRAIN3.EXE" and go to properties.

Click the compatibility tab at the top. Finally check the box that says run in 256 colors and the problem is solved.

You should only have to do this one time.

Cheers!
