Question about D-Link DCS-5300W Network Camera

1 Answer

D-Link 5300w incorrect URL

I have my 5300w configured, but to view it I have to type

At which point it gives me the login prompt, I enter my details and it takes me to a white page with 'return page' on it.

I then delete from the url to leave cgi-bin/camctrl.cgi?

to leave and it lets me in, whilst this is not a problem as such, it is when I want to watch remotely as the forwarding forwards to the address it should be ie but on the other end it does not recognise it without the extra /cgi-bin/camctrl.cgi?

Very annoying, can anyone help?!?!

I have read the manual and it looks like the problem can be fixed by using a paper clip or something about the same size and resetting to the factory defaults. Then go through the setup again and that should clear it up. Also to facilitate remote viewing and control from outside the local network it would be a good idea to go into the router configuration for your home network and assignee a fixed IP address to the camera and then forward the ports needed by the camera to the new fixed IP. The procedure for configuring your router will vary by manufacturer so consult the manuals. Or send a new request with a model number and I will try and help. The camera manual is available at if you need, along with some helpful tips. Good Luck

I have a Creative Zen V plus 2 gig mp3 player. i reloaded the firmware recently because the player lost all the music tracks and stuff. but when it was connected to the computer i could click on the player...


Support site for the Zen V Plus, see:,VARSET=CategoryID:213

The player can be reset when the screen freezes, using a thin pointed object, gently pushing the reset button on the left side with the display showing upwards:


The player needs regularly clean up when files are transferred to the player or put back to the computer.
Clean up is also advised before formatting the player or before doing a firmware reinstallation.
See next link:,/%3fst=408,e=0000000000741586241,k=9944,sxi=15,case=obj(64068),kb=ww_english_add,varset=ws:

For a clean up the Recovery Mode must be accessed:,/?st=395,e=0000000000741591988,k=9944,sxi=16,varset=ws:,case=64069
