Why can't i pull up anything that is downloaded on my proscan 7 inch android tablet

The file is corrupted; try re-downloading it. Possibly, you don't have a program installed that can read that specific type of file; install a compatible program.

Why cant i watch the vids i downloaded onto my coby mp3? i downloaded them to the vieos... ????

Check the specification of your MP3 player to determine the type of video file format it uses. Most common video files that MP3 players use are, AVI and WMV, there may be others such as FLV, MOV and DivX. If your player cannot play a video then it is an incompatible video file format, then you need to convert that video file to a format that your MP3 player uses. After video conversion then copy the video files to your MP3 player using the USB cable from your computer. Click on this link for instructions on converting video files for MP3 players :-

When i plug in my usb stick to my laptop and place the watch near same it will transfer the data but how do i read that data (which is now on the usb stick) on my computer? Have the product registered...

It depends on what type of data that is, there are files that can be read by a certain program such as .pdf file it can be read by adobe acrobat.
what is the file type you will need to find that out first to be able to determine what program to use to be able to read the file.
to find out the file type you can right click on the file then select properties check what is the file type then, you can google and search for a program that opens the file from your watch.
also if you watch has a disc that came with it possible that it may have a program that can help you read the file from it.
you menyioned it is in a USB stick try putting the file on your desktop see if it can be read by adobe reader, or right click on the file and select "open with" this will give you the option to select a program to read the file, try using notepad see if it will open in notepad most files will open in notepad if not then try opening the file with adobe or word.

My nokia n66 memory card is always corrupt. And I have many important things there. How to be solve this problem without format??? Please!!! help me...

try using a reader for the card (you can get a fairly good one at wal-mart or k-mart for about $12 USD) and try to copy the files into a new folder on your desktop, then try to read them, if you can read them on the computer, then you can format the card and reload the files back to it.

watch out for files that are named something like "ignore my files . ***" or similar (the *** is just for any file type that is there) if you see them, take them out of the folder and be ready to erase them.

Cannot delete file.

Most PMP's come with a format option in the settings menu. Back up any important files (if any) and format your player. This usually fixes most hard drive related problems.

Computer video problem

Hi there

This is something you can try.

Go into My Computer.

Right click one of the video clips.

Select "Open With", then "choose program".

Now you should get a list of programs you can play the file with, the best ones are at the top.

Select Windows Media Player or Real Player.

Click OK.

Now if the video clip works OK....

Repeat the procedure, but this time check the box below that says "always open this type of files with the selected program".
