Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

1 Answer

Media Center Library

Music files were on an external HD (drive H) when Media Center (on drive C) was set up. Now moved to the same laptop (D drive) and when attempting to play files, I'm tod that they are not available - the file location is still quoted as drive H. I've done setup again and trying to add a folder for MC to monitor (d:/music). However, although that folder is listed, the regular emply check box (which I would select) is not there but a faint tick mark is. I'm unable to select D drive and no folder changes are made. The odd thing is that I first moved my photos in exactly the same way and they work fine. I want them both on the laptop so I can easily view them (with music) on my TV.

What to do with the following problem? It startet after installing pinnacle studio HD. I had studio 9 on my pc. Then I brought my extern harddisk to Holland for using the fileditor on my laptop and after...

Hello lilianwijn
I'm not quite sure I have understood your problem .
Probably a compatibility issue with File Editor . While this file is still available, the developer is no longer updating or supporting this product . Runs under 32 bits systems .
Delete File Editor , Pinnacle Studio HD and Studio 9 . Reinstall first Studio 9 . Do not install programs on the external HDD . If situation is returned to normal , try reinstalling Studio HD ( maybe not compatible with 32 bits systems ) .
I hope this will help .
Best regards,
fanaudi .

How to download music on to my i-pod

Downloading music from your hard-drive to you Ipod is done with the program called Itunes. This program comes with your Ipod purchase or can be downloaded at The software is vital because it not only allows you to purchase from the popular Itunes music service, it's also the only way you can transfer songs onto your Ipod.

So let's look into the Itunes software, and more specifically, the Itunes library that is used to transfer songs from your hard-drive to your Ipod. You'll find it on the left hand panel of the program. Your library contains all your songs, movies, and podcast that you want to transfer over. Through the Itunes library, you'll be able to use their drag-and-drop feature for easy and fast transfer to your Ipod.

Before we move one to the next step, it should be made clear that songs that are downloaded from P2P clients might not show up on the Itunes library. You must add them manually, because you will not be able to transfer any songs until they are integrated into your Itunes library. Doing this is simple. Click on file>add file to library, locate the file you want to add, and press enter to complete the process. There is also the 'add folder to library' function which allows you to transfer a whole folder of songs into the Itunes library. This is quite handy to have if most of your songs are stored in one place on your hard drive.

Alright, let's get back on track here. You know the proper steps in which to keep your Itunes library updated now, and the last step is a breeze. Plug in your Ipod to the USB port in your computer, and you'll notice the new option to add songs from your Itunes library to the Ipod. Click and drag your files into the Ipod transfer screen and then you're done! You're now ready to explore the wonderful world of music without the burden of a large cumbersome computer to haul alongside you!

How can i set up what program to use to dowload files or music on vista

In general, this site will answer most of your questions. Third party (non-MS) software that handles music is a user preference, and there are paid subscription services and free software where you supply your own media or pay per download, like iTunes, that work as music managers. You can usually get a free trial for a couple of weeks if you want to check them out.
Depending on your version of Vista, you may or may not have a full media center. Learn to use the WMP, since it's fully integrated. But iTunes also works on windows, and is definitely worth a look. Better radio, and syncs with ipods. Musicmatch was a great jukebox, but I haven't used it since Yahoo bought it, and couldn't say how well it works with vista. Others are winamp, songbird, media monkey, etc., etc. Search media player or music or audio players, you'll find many others.
Once you have installed the software for your player, you can create folders to organize your music yourself, or use the built in tags for genres and so forth to let the player manage your files. Just read the help sections for more on this.
It's a vast world of sound out there. Dive in. Don't be affaid to get your ears wet. The worst that can happen is you lose your files, so learn how to back up your files, and do it regularly. You can't imagine how many times I've seen someone with an external hard drive that crashes worrying about the loss of years of files, whether music or photos. Don't keep it all in one place...
Best wishes.

XP search facility

Hello my friend, how are you? Regarding on your problem, you can do the 1 time search in all your music files regardless of their individual format by using Windows Media Player Software which was pre-installed already in your Xp after you install your OS XP in your computer. Using Windows Media Player you can group all the music files you have in computer per title, artist, album, genre or even date and names. To do that kindly follow the steps below: 1. Open Windows Media Player located at the program files in your computer. In case you cannot locate it kindly click the START BUTTON located buttom part of your scree. Then click ALL PROGRAMS or PROGRAMS then WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER. I case WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER is not their Click ACCESSORIES then goto ENTERTAINMENT then Locate WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER. 2. After you locate and open wWindows Media Player or WMP kindly click the tab Library then suddenly a consule messagebox pop-up asking "Would you like to search music in your computer?" then kindly click YES Button then let the WMP search and gather all the Music files you have in your computer.  3. Next time yo log in WMP you can goto directly to the Library and select the music you want to play which was sorted automatically by WMP.
Hope this solution  will help you solved your problem. if you seek  moreassitance just reply to this post. If you find this solution solved your problem please don't forget to rate this solution. thank you and Godbless.

I want to get rid of the Move Files message...

Just for starters, you might wish to go to windows update and make sure you have the latest version of Media Player. Sometimes that's all it takes to get the bugs out.
The only other thing I can think of is that you've set your library to monitor all files and folders on your computer, so it is constantly trying to gather them all into the WMP library. Go to Tools, Options, Library and see how you've set WMP to monitor folders. Possibly adjusting this will stop you from running into that Move Files box when you open the player.
If that doesn't do it, write back with the version of media player you're using.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread. If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!

Vista home premium

there is no problems about your system. Its maybe your systems is lack media "codecs" that enhance your DVD files or Movies to play. maybe you should download any HD dvd codecs and install to your system. or may search google the "media player classic" and use as your player or VLC player preety cool player for almost movies.
