My problem is how to download a song in a usb please cmplete instraction


I am assuming you are trying to download the song onto a USB Drive or USB Music Player so when you Download the song all operating systems are slightly different as are browsers so I am giving these instructions based on internet Explorer and Windows 7. Click to download then you will get a popup in the bottom of your internet window asking if you want to run or save or cancel. Next to the Save button is a small arrow click the arrow and move down the drop down list to SAVE AS and click on that a new windows browser window will open and you can sellect what to name the file you are downloading and where to save the file, on the left is a tree view of the files folders, ect on your PC if you scrol to and click on computer it will then list all the Main Drives ie: Hard drives cd/dvd rom drives and all removable media/Drives including your USB drive Click on that and click OPEN/SAVE if it was open then it will open and list anything already on that drive just click SAVE now to add your new file to the drive. Alternativly You can download onto your PC anywhere then open the File location and alongside that window in a new window open your USB drive to view the files Then just drag and drop or Copy and paste the desired files to the USB drive
Hope this Helps!!!

How to download in my pc?


1.

When you download a file-such as a program, update, game, video, or document-you transfer it from the Internet to your computer.

2.

When you download files using Download Manager, they're automatically saved in the Downloads folder. This folder is usually located on the drive where Windows is installed (for example, C:\users\your name\downloads). For information about managing your downloads and changing where they are saved, see Using Download Manager in Internet Explorer

If you're saving a file, you can choose to save it to a particular folder. If you don't select a folder yourself, some files are automatically saved to a folder associated with the file type. For example, if you right-click a picture on a web page, and then choose Save Picture As, it will be saved to the Pictures folder.

3.
Open Download Manager

  1. ?id=microsoft.windows.resources.shellexecutetopiciconClick to open Internet Explorer.

  2. Click the Tools button getcontent.aspx?assetid=448ef968-d58a-43a2-b0cc-f396f4024f2c&documentset=en-us&prod=win700&market=us , and then click View downloads.

***************************************************************************

Right-click a file, and then click this

To do this

Delete File

Delete the file from the computer.

Copy download link

Copy the link you used to download the file. You can paste the link, and then save it or send it to someone else.

Go to download webpage

Open the webpage where you downloaded the file.

Open containing folder

Open the file's location on the computer.

Report that this file is unsafe

Open a SmartScreen webpage where you can report malware (malicious software).

Rerun security checks on this file

Run all security checks, including SmartScreen filter, on the file.

How does download work?


A download is when you retrieve a file from an external storage location. This could be a local drive you have or from a provider via a website. Typical downloads are those that are music files, drivers for devices, and documents. There are also voluntary and involuntary downloads. Voluntary is when you choose to add a driver or document to your device. Involuntary is when a cookie or other file is added to allow functionality of a program or website. Usually to download any of the above (except involuntary) you will be given a DOWNLOAD button to click on or otherwise choose. If operating a Windows based operating system you will be asked to SAVE or RUN the file. Saving the file places a copy on your computer to be opened, ran, etc. at a later time. Choosing RUN places a copy of the file in a temporary location on your PC and then executes the action such as installation of a program. When the installation is done if you chose RUN then the temporary file is automatically deleted. If you chose SAVE then even when you execute the file action the file stays on your computer. Be careful of what you download and the source of the file. Some downloads contain virus or other malware that will negatively affect your computer. If you utilize virus software the best option is to SAVE the file and then scan it via the antivirus software prior to executing the action. Final comment... Limewire, Youtube, Bittorrent etc are notorious for INFECTED downloads... you should be very cautious if you use these sites. Manufacturer sites like HP, Dell, Apple and sites like CNET are safe bets for files and drivers.

Need soft ware for model T-6000U. Can I download


Drivers for DigiPro T-6000U graphics tablet,

http://www.uc-logic.com/download/download_driver.htm

The download file is in ZIP form.
(ZIP files are used to send a file that is large in size, more easily over the internet)

When the small window comes up, Left-click on the empty circle to the left of - Save File
Another small window should come up, with a download progress bar.

Let the file download all the way.
Where will the file go?

If you have your downloads set to save to your My Documents folder, (Documents for Vista), it will go there. (Start>My Documents)
It may go to a sub-folder within My Documents called Downloads.

If you do Not have your downloads set to save to your My Documents folder, this file will go to your desktop screen.

When you see the file - Driver 5.02.zip
double-click right on it.
The Installation Wizard will open up.
Go to the upper far left of the window, and left-click on - Extract All Files

This is the Instruction Manual. It's in PDF file form,

Unable to open downloads


I'd say, offhand, that you are looking in the wrong place for the stuff you downloaded. Otherwise, Windows would try to open it and if it couldn't, you'd get an error message.
Try this: What I always suggest to my clients is to create a directory called something like "download" under the root directory (e.g. c:\download) Save your files to that directory. The system should remember this and always save there.
Now all you have to do it go to that directory and you'll be able to see the files and run them.

Cant download videos


Even though the file may be linked to your movie player, when the movie player is trying to access the video, its simply not finding it where it is suppose to be.

I'm not sure how your downloading convention is, but how I do things is when I get an attachement, picture, or video... I usually almost always Right-click on it once and do a Save As... Then I'll specify a folder to save it into (usually easiest saving it to the Desktop and create a folder there, example: Movies) and hit Ok.

I'm not sure if you're opening these movies directly from your source and its streaming and not downloaded OR if you did download them, it is not finding the files in the designated space that Windows Media Player is trying to find it in. Like when you may put a screwdriver on the shelf versus the drawer... when you go back to find the screwdriver and look in the drawer (where you've always put it) its not there.

As far as opening files, it may be that you need a certain codec to open up that particular file. I find that most videos accessed online need the DivX codec that you can download for free from the divx website. Remember to look for the codec itself and not the player. Be sure to read all the install screens and only select the things you need instead of hitting OK on all the screens.

If you don't remember where you put those downloaded movies, I would do a search of the files and folers on the hard drive. Especially if you remember what the file name was called, that'll help immensely. Simply press on the Start > Search, and then put in the file name.

If you have access to another computer with internet (friend, relative, neighbor, etc...), get a USB flash drive or thumb drive (2 or 4 GB can be found for around $10 - $15), then follow these steps:

1. locate your express service tag code, usually found on a sticker somewhere on the computer's case, and write it down.
2. go to Dell's support website: http://support.dell.com
3. Click "Drivers and Downloads"
4. Choose "By Service Tag"
5. Enter your Express Service Tag and click GO
6. Scroll down to "Network"
7. Download the "Recommended" driver and save it to the USB flash drive.

Take the USB flash drive back to your computer, open it in Windows Explorer, then double click the downloaded file and follow the installation directions from there.

You could also do the same with a CD-R if you don't have a thumb drive, but it's a bit more involved.

Hello i want software to use my scanner bearpaw1200cu


Download Instructions:


1.
Make sure you have disabled your antivirus and firewall, if you have them, BEFORE you begin the download as it may corrupt the files you are going to download.
2.
Click on each "Download" button listed for your operating system. Each time you click on "Download" a window will pop up asking "Would you like to OPEN the file or SAVE it to your computer." Click on Save.
3.
Then another window will pop up asking where on your computer you want to save the file to.
4.
Save them to your "Desktop" so you can find them when you're done downloading all of them.
5.
Get off of the internet.
6.
Click on the first file you downloaded. It should have an ".exe." extension or a "blue" folder icon. That will begin the installation of the driver files.
7.
Follow the instructions for the install as they come up, reboot when asked to.
Make sure the device is not plugged into the computer during the drivers install. After all the files are installed plug the device into the computer. DO NOT PLUG DEVICES INTO "FRONT" USB PORTS ON THE COMPUTER AS THESE ARE "HUB" PORTS AND the system may not "see" the device.
