Acer has a program on most of their laptops called Crystal Eye or something.

Check in your programs list for it.

Just run the program and there should be a record button somewhere.

Sorry I can't tell you exactly what to do step by step since I've never owned an Acer.

Afterwards use Windows Movie Maker and import the video into the program. Now you can edit the video, add music, etc.

Let me know if you get stuck.

Best of luck!

    What's the exact model of your laptop?

    Your laptop isn't supported by Acer offically.

    These were a pain to find. Hopefully one of them will work for you.

    Copy and paste the above addresses into your browswer than download, unzip the files and run the setup or install files.

    Let me know what happens.

    Sorry man, this is what happens when new operating system's come out, slowly but surely users are forced to use them or end up with problems like yours.

    You can try using the windows update "custom" search. Drivers might pop up under the hardware section.

    If not, try again in a month or so and hopefully someone will by then will have found a compatible driver.

    Take it easy,

Whenever I play a DVD, the playback seems a slow both sound and video. Not sure if I need to clean it or what? I have a Lenova 0769 running XP Pro Version 2002 SP 3.

If it is your cd-dvd rom, or your dvd's, your movies would skip, freeze, like any other movies players such as a scratch dvd played on your home dvd player. So,
did this happen before any updates to your o/s, such if you are using windows media player to play your movies?? If not, it could be a software issue, where some updates will bring your programs up to date, but uses more cpu/memory and even your GPU (graphic processor) and thus cause your movies or video to play back slowly because your computer hardware is underpower to handle the up to date versions., or it could be vise versa where your program will needs an update to the newest version to play. (Usually like adobe, java to watch youtube or online videos). You might want to see if you can play with another program and see if you get different result, or maybe undo your update to previous version.

Not enough video memory to play a DVD?

Go to download their Advisor program and run it on your machine

It will report how much memory you have on board

1gb is the bottom line for running XP, 2gb for Vista

Using XP and a DVD player it is a 2gb application

3gb if you are running Vista.

Some laptops allow you to limit how much Ram Windows can steal on start up

Problem in operating system

Hi So when you insert a DVD in your drive your computer probaly starts the default software to see that DVD. So if you installed any movie viewer recently uninstall it. You may need also to update your windows media player to the latest version. Of course i bet you already tried more than 1 dvd but i suggest that you try to insert a data/backup/game dvd anything that would not start the movie player software, and see how it goes. About your movies folder, it could be an old problem i had many years from now, about some video codec messing up the XP thumbnails. To fix this i had to find and remove that codec. now i use VLC as my video player and no need to install a million codecs anymore. So it could be related to the first problem, a video codec is messing with your video player. Hope this helps

On aspire one what is the name of the icon ?

You didn't mention which OS you're running (XP or Linux) so I'm going to assume it's Windows XP. Follow this link to download Windows Movie Maker.

Playing movies on laptop

Download latest Windows Media Player

Try also one of the players in the following website, in case your system is malfunctioning with Media Player:The Alternative | Replacements for Windows Media Player

If that does not fix the problem, then you may need to add more RAM memory to your system.

If your computer has these hardware specs:

Windows XP with Service Pack 2 or higher, or Windows Vista; Internet Explorer version 6 or higher; Windows Media Player version 11 or higher; an active broadband connection to the Internet; 1.0 GHz processor; 512 MB RAM; 3 GB free hard disk drive space.

you should be ok with the movies download and watch.

Other wise you will probablt need new hardware which is really tough to upgrade on a laptop.

Making video

Hey cheekybum27,

If you have Windows XP, you can use Windows Movie Maker!

Start > All Programs > Windows Movie Maker

Just go to Capture from device, and voila! You can pick the webcam. You can also record sound if you have a mic.
