My ps3 isnt registering my game even though it is inside of it and it freezes all the time and now i cant even play online. What do i do?

Yes this is the freezing error and also sounds like you may have the problem with the drive not reading discs. If you have these what you can do is send it in and they will fix it for you.

I have CRE and when i back up after clicking open

depending on the size of your backup, it might take several (and seemingly long) minutes to backup your entire database. when it's done backing up, it will pop up a message such as "backup saved successfully." you may also want to try calling up their support to get their automatic backup solution setup. it's comes with the software as an optional add on, but it's free and works behind the scenes on a schedule, it's been a real life saver for me!

My ipod isnt conetting to itunes

1. Reset or restore your iPod for a try, this can fix many general iPod problems. 2. You may try this iTunes alternative, I always use it to upload music and video to my iPod once my iTunes can't recognize my iPod, my friends recommend it to me, it's safe and works pretty well, you can also use it to copy music and video from ipod to computer for backup, it's useful when you lost your iTunes library. 3. Upgrade or re-install iTunes for a try, this is the method that I got from Apple technical support. Hope it helps. Contact me if you have any other question.

Im having problems registering my motorola_hs850 (bluetooth)

if you're searching for devices via bluetooth, then make sure the device(s) are on/and in pairing mode (usually done by holding down a power button, or combination of buttons) and also sometimes have a setting to become discoverable -make sure thats on too.

Once you have the device in pairing mode, then search from your Asus

Well, in most calculators, the action of taking out the backup battery practically clears the whole thing. Memory, everything. I myself have a Ti-89 and have not yet experienced this problem, but I have on an older Ti-82 and removed the backup battery and the whole thing is dead now, or at least nothing happens when I turn it on, even after replacing the batteries again. If you still have the manual, I would check out the troubleshooting. If you don't have it, try to find it online. And if you have done both of these things, try getting hold of technical support through Texas Instruments.

Wolverine ESP 80 GB Portable Multimedia Storage Player

Very Simple,

Turn on the ESP,
Make sure you are on the Home screen that shows Pictures, Music, Video, Backup, etc...
Insert the camera card.
After the ESP identifies the camera card a Pop-up will display Full Backup,Photo Backup or No Action. Select Full Backup and push the joystick in to execute.
After downloading the card you have the option to Open,Close or Compare. All files will be backed up in the Backup Filder on the ESP.
I do suggest reading the manual or contacting myself for professional help with this device if you are having any issues.

Thanks Rico,
