Hello,

The best thing to do when you get a Download window is to select SAVE, especially when downloading large files. It will then open another window where you can direct it to save to a folder or on your Desktop.

I usually save the file to my C:\Temp folder or to the desktop.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for using Fixya.

    Once the file is downloaded, you can use the Start>Run>Browse and then find the file in your folder to access it, or if you downloaded it to your Desktop, it's right there.

Can anyone find a download-able user manual for Samsung lcd LE32A456C TELEVISION AS I CAN NOT FIND MINE AND I AM HAVEING TROUBLE TRYING TO FIND O9NE ON THE INTERNET


Hi there,

You can download the full user manual in English from the Samsung UK website by clicking on the link below. You may find this slightly more useful for your purposes than downloading the DoC (Declaration of Conformity) from Samsung, Spain.

How to download music video from pc to mp4?


Hello

The Internet is full of great places to find MP4 downloads. Check out sites such as iTunes to find a video or file you like, and then click the download button.

A dialog box will appear reading, "You are about to download the file "name_of_file_you_are_downloading _will_appear_here", are you sure?" Click "OK" to start downloading.

A File Download pop-up screen will appear again, asking "Do you want to open or save this file?" Click the SAVE button to save the file to a specific location on your computer (be sure to remember where you save it!).

Once you've saved the file to your computer,connect your mp4 player to your computer,go to "my computer"you will see your mp4 player among the list of drives.Click to open the drive then you can click on the file you downloaded and drag it to your MP4 player and enjoy!

If the file you've downloaded isn't in the correct format for your player, you may need to convert it before adding it to your MP4 player. Basically, you'll repeat Step 3, and save the download to a file on your computer, then convert it and add it to your MP4 player. See your instruction manual for details, or search the internet for a free MP4 converter to reformat the file. This process is quick and easy and should only take a few quick mouse-clicks.

Good luck

I RECENTLY INHERITED A BERNINA 1630, BUT WITH NO INSTRUCTION MANUAL. I JUST NEED THE OPERATING MANUAL.


Hi,

OK, I managed to obtain the manual for free! I have uploaded the file to Rapidshare for you to download:

http://rapidshare.com/files/432227587/Bernina_1630.pdf


Click on the above link to open the download page, then scroll to the bottom right hand corner of the page and click on "Slow Download". You will have to wait for up to a minute before the download commences. After the clock reaches zero, click "Download now!" and a box will appear asking you if you want to "Open" or "Save" the file. Click "Save" and save the file to an easy to remember location on your PC e.g. your "Desktop" or "Documents" folder.

If you have a rapidshare account you can use the "High-Speed Download" option after logging-in, but you have to pay for this and I'm assuming you don't have one.

Depending on your browser security settings, the Open/Save box may not appear. If this happens, you will need to click on the gold bar at the top of download page and choose the "download this file" option.

Once you have saved the file you can open it from the location you saved it to and print if required or simply . If you are unable to open the file after you have downloaded it, you may also need to download Adobe Reader:

http://get.adobe.com/reader/

I'm sure you already know how to download and save files, and I don't wish to be patronising, however it's better to include all the relevant information, than be asked for it later when things don't work as planned.

I have downloaded the manual myself and I verify it is virus-free.

If you need any further assistance or, after following the instructions above, you are still unable to download the file, please post back and I will provide an alternative method for downloading / obtaining your manual.

Regards,
BElectric

I have downloaded the software for the canon pixma780 to my mac. How do I open it? I cannot find it. I am wanting to scan a picture. Thanks.


Procedures for the download and installation

The software are compressed so you will need to follow the instructions below to install them.

( 1. Click the link, select [ Save ], specify "" Save As "", then click [ Save ] to download the file. )

2. The downloaded file will be saved in the specified place in the self-extracting form ( .exe format ).

3. Double-click the downloaded EXE file to decompress it.
Look in your "downloaded program files" or "my downloads" folders and also in the "zipped" folder to see if the file is there.

If you cannot find it but can remember what it was called put a search in for the file on your computer.

If you cannot remember what the file is called (or part of it) then I suggest you download it again and save it to your desktop so that you can find it easily.

Cant download videos


Even though the file may be linked to your movie player, when the movie player is trying to access the video, its simply not finding it where it is suppose to be.

I'm not sure how your downloading convention is, but how I do things is when I get an attachement, picture, or video... I usually almost always Right-click on it once and do a Save As... Then I'll specify a folder to save it into (usually easiest saving it to the Desktop and create a folder there, example: Movies) and hit Ok.

I'm not sure if you're opening these movies directly from your source and its streaming and not downloaded OR if you did download them, it is not finding the files in the designated space that Windows Media Player is trying to find it in. Like when you may put a screwdriver on the shelf versus the drawer... when you go back to find the screwdriver and look in the drawer (where you've always put it) its not there.

As far as opening files, it may be that you need a certain codec to open up that particular file. I find that most videos accessed online need the DivX codec that you can download for free from the divx website. Remember to look for the codec itself and not the player. Be sure to read all the install screens and only select the things you need instead of hitting OK on all the screens.

If you don't remember where you put those downloaded movies, I would do a search of the files and folers on the hard drive. Especially if you remember what the file name was called, that'll help immensely. Simply press on the Start > Search, and then put in the file name.
