    Thanks for the answer.

    I have copied 'WFTVFM' folder to C:\Program Files\ in my new HDD. When I click 'WFTV.exe' in this folder, it gives me a message: 'Cannot find any video capture device'. Do you know what it means and how to fix it?

    Which one is the TV Tuner drivers as you mentioned in your response?

Open your program files on your old HDD, Find your Tv Tuner drivers in there, Now you can either drag them onto your new hard drive or copy them into the Program files on your new Hard drive. Make sure you have them in you new one and then unhook you old HDD and Open TV tuner Files should self install. Or you could also, If you know the name of the tv tuner model and series go to Add New hardware Icon in your control panel. Do it from there when it wants you to install from a specific place choose that option then the name of the device should be there under the network option, find your device and install it from that location I sure Hope that Helps you out

    Is your camera plugged in when it tells you there in no capture device, Its searching for a camera. Did you use setup files, you should be able to work your camera if all the software is installed, and you cam is plugged in. I am also sorry about tell you that they would be in the network option, It would be under Tv tuner Output. What kind of device are you using tv, cam, ect. I will try to help you some more if I can just give a little more about what you need, I will do my best to do what I can...

Replace hdd in acer aspire rc500

Replacing a hard drive can be time consuming, but you gain knowledge in the process. Is it a newer SATA or SATAII drive or the older IDE drive? They're both pretty easy as long as you set up for an external boot device before you pull it out. We'll have to go more into specifics when I hear from you next.

Upgrading the Acer Aspire 3050 80GB Hard Drive to something bigger??

Hey there gothicarcher, this is possible to do on your own. you will need to purchase an external drive case, that does exact copies of drives. You can also use this as an external drive when you are done. You could buy a kit for upgrading that also provides the external drive case and the data copying software you will need ( EZ Upgrade kit ). Next cleanup your old harddrive of any unwanted files, and defragment it. Next, mount the new hard drive (ensure it is compatible with your laptop) in the external case. Connect it to the laptop and transfer the data. Next turnoff laptop, remove battery, and following instructions in your manual, open laptop to access the hard drive. Remove it paying extra attention to the way it mounted and any guides that may be attached. Switch guides from old to new and place new hard drive ensuring all connections are made. From here you are good to go. The old harddrive can be mounted in the external case and used. By the way, you can run programs fom an external, but they still use up some admin space on your main hardrive and the speed of the program can be hindered due to the limitations of the connection, causing the occasional stall. Good Luck! p.s. ensure you have the manuals necessary and follow all software recommendations. Lost data can hurt. Back up on disk anything that can't be replaced easily
