I have a problem to install window 98 .

Another solution is to download and install Microsoft Virtual PC in XP, create a Virtual PC drive, and install Windows 98 onto the Virtual PC drive. This works fine if you want to run Win 9X programs which don't require access to USB ports on your computer. If you need Windows 98 to have full access to all of the computer hardware, then use palaboy's solution.

Computer does not recognize the cd rom drives on this computer

Hello my name is Tim, It sounds like you may need to reinstall the drivers and get your pc to locate the drives, you can usually get these drivers from the manfacturers website or from for free, if you have the install disks for the dvd burner and cd rom you can use another pc to load them onto a usb drive and then transfer them to your pc that way. You can also go to controll panel, then device manager, and try to locate it there to see if it needs any drivers. I hope this heled you, please feel free to ask more questions and I will try to help.

Pc will not open any disks, software etc

Sounds like you might have an issue with the hardware. I had a similar issue about a year ago. turned out it was just by chance that I lost the DVD drive after I loaded a new software package for DVD movies. So check to make sure your DVD will play any disk and let me know what you find.

Are you talking about DVD Shrink? Actually it is quite simple..

First you open the DVD from the menu list, and it will run through a process of loading the DVD movie.

Then you decide if you wish to extract all the languages. If not, the compression will be less, and the quality better. Just uncheck the languages you do not need.

Then, click the Backup Button. A wizard will come up and you decide where you wish to save you movie. It will compress the movie and save it so you can burn it later. Or, you can burn it right then to another DVD (although I would prefer to do this separately.)

Now, I do not use Shrink anymore, as many protections that the new movies have cannot be broken, and Shrink will not work on them anymore.

Good luck!
