    But if they're gone, then why is the available/free space on my HD exactly the same? I had a LOT of movies, music and photos on my HD. There is no way that the space on my HD would be the same if they were gone.

    Hi Lee, I tried using the advanced search options and no go. I know all the filenames and I tried doing the case sensitive thing, but again no luck. Please don't give up on me, I'll try just about anything. I had so many photos, my resume, no to mention music, I'm so angry at myself because I'm no novice, I should have known better. I know all about backup and I guess I was just panicked about the stupid mistake I made with disabling the remote access.

Hi
You have a point about the free space.
Why don't use the search utility to search for your missing files, if you know the names of them which i'm sure you will do, just type the file name in the search box, click on all files and folders, then click on advanced options, select it to search in hidden files and folders and see what happens, if it finds some then you will have a general idea of where they are.

Let me know how you get on.

I try to add music to my picture movie through windows movie maker but each time error:0x87160129 keeps popping up.movie will play but without music.Please help.


Program requirements before music, videos are displayed together on a computer
1. A music editing software separaly installed on the computer
a. the music files would be extracted from disk mediums by music editor software.
b. a versatile music editor software would provide format conversions
c. a music editor software that makes possible clip extractions to be integrated onto another program

2. A movie editing software separately installed on the computer.
a. a software that recognise verious file format in music and videos
b. a versatile video editor software would intergrate music from another software


Important notes
1. Music file formats are selected compartible to the video editor software on which to be integrated
2. Files have to be edited and stored at a separate computer folder like my documents, my briefcase, or personal file folder

Initial diagnostic checks
1. The music file is in an incompartible format, performing a file format convertion should resolve such an issue
a. software multimedia converters are acquirable to be installed separately
2. the music file is corrupted, selecting another would resolve the issue
3. performing the video creation precess altogether would fix any error. Discard the video created, and rebuild a new compilation of music and videos.
a. notice any file errors requiring fixing

Windows Media Player 11 recognizes and plays MPEG-4 just fine but WMM doesn't recognize them. I would like to import some MPEG-4 files into Movie Maker and work with them - is there a codecs or something that allows this?

I'm sure I can find a program to convert MP4 into a format MM will recognize but if possible I'd like to just skip the conversion step and work with MP4 directly in MM.

Thanks!====================================================
Movie Maker is not compatible with MP4 files...
best bet would be to convert them to .wmv.

The following freebie might be worth a try:

Format Factory
http://www.pcfreetime.com/

All to MP4 / 3GP / MPG / AVI / WMV / FLV / SWF.
All to MP3 / WMA / AMR / OGG / AAC / WAV.
All to JPG / BMP / PNG / TIF / ICO / GIF / TGA.


You need some software to convert the protected M4P music file to unprotected MP3, WAV etc first, then you can import the mp3 files into Windows Movie Maker as background music.
TuneClone is such a software to convert the M4P music file to MP3, WAV easily. You can click here to download TuneClone and convert them to MP3 files and then import the music files into Windows Movie Maker project.


TuneClone uses a virtual CD burning technology to simulate the burning and ripping process and can convert M4P files to MP3 without any CD-R disc and do this work quickly. TuneClone installs a virtual CD-RW, it helps you burn any unprotected or DRM protected M4P, M4a, WMA music files onto the virtual CD, rips tracks on the virtual CD, encodes tracks onto MP3, WAV or WMA music files. It can repeat this audio converting procedure until your whole music collection is done.
Since the virtual CD emulates your computer RAM and hard disk as erasable CD-RW drive (Virtual CD-RW), the converting speed is faster than any other m4p to mp3 conversion programs.

Windows Movie Maker is video creating/editing software that is included in recent versions of Microsoft Windows. It contains features such as effects, transitions, titles/credits, audio track, timeline narration, and Auto Movie. New effects and transitions can be made and existing ones can be modified using XML code.

I have downloaded a movie but cannot played.


They are lots on downloaded movie that are not played, the reason is there are some movie are are needed to have Codec Pack.
What is exactly a Codec?
-> is a technical name for "compressor/decompressor" and "code/decode". These variations mean the same thing: a codec is a computer program that both shrinks large files, and make them playable on your computer. This programs required for your media player to play your downloaded music and movies.

Why do we need these codecs?
Because video and music are large files, they become difficult to transfer across the internet quickly. AVI is not iself a codec, it is a common "container format" that many different codec can use. Your Windows Media Player will often try to communicate the specific code it needs.

The file you saved just tells your computer where to get the picture files and sound files on the slower computer. You need to copy those files also. The program should ask you where you saved the picture and sound files on the faster computer.

Cervical Cushion- Pillows for Neck Pain Are you a very sedentary person? Do you have a classic office job and are 8 hours or more sitting in front of a computer? Then you most likely suffer from cervical pain. Cervical pain means having severe pain in the neck area because of an incorrect position of our cervix for quite some time. The cervical block or its numbness is due to the unnatural compression of the vertebrae. In this guide you will find all information about cervical pain, how to prevent them and how to cure them, but above all you will learn how to choose your cervical cushion that will help you lessen the pain or make it disappear completely. In the following table you will find some models of cervical pillows that can be found on the market, along with some of the major features that distinguish them. How to Choose a Cervical Cushion Since on the market you can find a great multitude of cervical pillow models, choose the most suitable one and certainly not a small business. First of all, choosing the most appropriate one is to understand what pathology you are suffering from. Although we often call it neck pain, cervical is not always the same in all cases. In this regard, it is understood that not everyone can use the same cushion. There are cases where the patient needs a more flexible pillow, others where there is a need for stiffer material, so before buying your new cervical cushion it would be interesting to consult your trusted physician, who can visit you and decide for you what is best suited to your pathology. Another factor could concern the price, but being in the medical field I recommend closing an eye on this item, ten euros more or less are nothing when it comes to health. Moreover, the price is directly proportional to the quality of the material used and of course there are materials that cost more than others. So as you see there are several factors to consider. Take care of all the advice you'll find on these pages and you too will be able to make the right choice. What is cervical pain and remedies? The area of ??the cervical vertebrae is that portion of our body that accuses so-called cervical pain when our neck or our head is in an incorrect position for several hours. This area is very important for our health and our well-being. In practice it connects our body and especially the spine to the head, with all the nerve endings that pass right in this particular area and very sensitive. When this area is subjected to a continuous stress, we do not only pain neck pain, but we also compromise the proper functioning of the head movement. Very often the pain becomes so strong that besides affecting the neck, it moves to the upper shoulders and joints, causing the famous head turns and also nausea. In the most severe cases a capatina is recommended by your doctor. Among the various factors that can trigger these severe pains are incorrect posture or an improper pillow. At the origin of this evil, however, there are also muscle contractions, trauma and stress. For this reason, the cervical pillow was born, which relieves the pain and allows the neck to be in the correct position. Structure, shape and material are designed to fit perfectly to the shape of the neck, sustaining it and giving it relief.
