    Hi there,



    No, they are not hidden files.

    Tried searching by size.No result.

    Nothing in the Recycle Bin.



    Is it possible for someone to delete it from the outside? Meaning could the computer be infected or hacked?



    Regards,

    S.A

Hi,
The easiest way is to go to START/SEARCH Then type in the file name, and see if it can be found on the hard-drive.

    Hi,

    Folders And Files Don,t just dissapear.

    Have you checked to see if it,s A hidden file.

    Or if you know the size you can search for the size of the file.

    Failing this you deleted it in error.

    Check the recycle Bin.

    Hi,

    depending on the download source, if it was from somewhere like kazaa-morpheus et,c. it could have been a virus.

    which would mean that, when the computer was re-booted, the file could be activated as another program.

    i,d suggest using a good antivirus software, to check your system.

    Recommended AVG Free, also download Spybot-search and destroy.

    I,d also recommend in future, that You create a folder on Your Desktop, and Title It Downloads, then download everything there.

    this way you know exactly where everythings going to.

    Good-Luck.

It seems that this file is corrupted or missing. What you can do is to manually replace this file. Follow the steps below to replace the file.

  1. Download the mscomctl.ocx file to your desktop (right-click on link and choose 'Save link as...')

Converting Movies to Psp Format


Hey again, this is a real quick guide for anyone interested to get a movie onto there PSP without all the fluff I have seen elsewhere. I just watched Aftica the Serengeti on my PSP and here's is the lowdown.

Movie - approx 40 minutes - DVD.
Saved to hard drive - 2.6Gig - using DVD.
Decryptor (free program) try Google.
Transferred to AVI format - 377MB - using Super DVD Ripper (9 FREE trial uses) then you must buy.
Transferred to MP4 - 37MB - using the (basically free) Image Convertor 2.

Average movie breakdown - using above as a guide only.
So i'm guessing the average movie may be 4.5Gig for example saved to 800MB.
CONVERTED TO 70-80MB.

OK, use DVD Decryptor to save the movie to your hard drive eg. c:\africa (it will save it for you as described). When completed find the folder c:\africa on your computer and find the vob file in that folder - generally the largest one and right click and play it with your dvd program to see what part it is. If it's the correct movie part you now know that's the one you need.

Once you have located the vob file you want to transfer open DVD Ripper and go to wizard icon. There you will see an icon of VOB to AVI button. Click it and then it will ask to locate the file. Locate the file and click it. It will SCAN THE FILE (just wait till that finishes) a parameter box opens next and just click the arrow. It then askes to choose output file, click the file icon and locate the correct fob file. It then askes for file compression - choose microsoft windows media and then click ok then press the start button. It will now convert the vob into avi format.
(there are also other options ie:dvd to avi etc.) I have only used the vob to avi for this test.

After DVD ripper has transferred the file it will save it to the same folder as the original move was in eg: c:\africa\viteots. Open the file and you will now see an AVI icon containing the movie.

Make sure you PSP is on and in usb mode then Open Image Convertor 2 and press on movie / add to list. For this example I click on c:drive the found the folder Africa and opened it and there was my converted AVI file. Click the file press ok and it will be transferred to your PSP for viewing pleasure.

****Note**** I only converted one VOB file as that's all there was for this particular movie. If you have more then one vob file you may need to try the dvd to avi when you rip. This is just a guide i worked out to compress dvd into the smallest possible file so you can get value out of a 512 card.

How to download in my pc?


1.

When you download a file-such as a program, update, game, video, or document-you transfer it from the Internet to your computer.

2.

When you download files using Download Manager, they're automatically saved in the Downloads folder. This folder is usually located on the drive where Windows is installed (for example, C:\users\your name\downloads). For information about managing your downloads and changing where they are saved, see Using Download Manager in Internet Explorer

If you're saving a file, you can choose to save it to a particular folder. If you don't select a folder yourself, some files are automatically saved to a folder associated with the file type. For example, if you right-click a picture on a web page, and then choose Save Picture As, it will be saved to the Pictures folder.

HI,
You can download the dll file from this link

How to download from the internet to a folder


Right click an empty space on your desktop. Then from the pop-up window slide down to New and then click Folder. The folder will be created on your desktop. Name the folder Downloads. Now when you download anything place it in that folder. There you can scan the file for virus or spyware with your security programs by right clicking the file you downloaded.

I hv lost the cd which comes with jvc hard disk camcorder gz-mg130e/ek i cannot find it on the net ..where shall i find it??


The software that comes in the box with the camcorder is a Cyberlink Bundle of Power Producer, Pwer Director and Poxwer Cinema... Power Cinema allows you view your DVD's while the other 2 allows for editing and production of you movie title and backing up and browsing your titles Pics and movies..... Unfortunately you cant download this software anyware on the net for free. On the Cyberlink.com you can download a free 30 day trial to the software but would eventually have to purchase a new copy.

There is an alternate way to access you mivies in the meantime... by changing the the file extension to .mpg after you drag and drop your files off you computer to you desktop or selected folder.

Steps:

1. Connect you usb to you computer and camcorder
2. Camcorder ask do you want to playback, backup, create dvd, direct print.... Choose playback
3. Option pops up on your computer.. Select "Take No Action"
4. Go into My Computer and open the E: or Everio_HDD
5. >>For movies- Select SD-Video - Folder PRG002 or PRG001 are where your movie files is located
Drag and drop .MOD files to your desktop **.MOI files are indexes of the .MOD files and will not convert **

>>For Pictures- Select DCIM - Folder 101JVCSO or 100JVCSO - Drag and Drop to desktop - NO FILE CONVERSION NECESSARY

6. Change the file extension to .MPG

** If you find yourself haveing issues changing the file extension, open my computer... select tools... go to folder options.... uncheck "Hide extension for known file types", check it back when your finished if you have kids.. I do for my computer.***

**You are simply creating copies of your files when you drag and drop you movies and pics***

These step will allow you to view back you movies using Windows Media Player until you get your software.

Hope this helps

File/Folder Permission Message in Pinnacle Studio 11 Plus


Hello welcome to FIxya!

Here you can check this procedure on how to open your files again.

"1) Check your Recycle Bin
2) Do a Folder/File Search for each of the Grey Folder Project names. This will display all Folders & Files with that Project Name. You are looking for an .stx File. If it's there, right-Click on Project Name / Open Containing Folder & Copy it to your My Projects Folder. Then you should have both the Grey Folder & .stx File for the same Project name, showing in your My Projects Folder.
If the Search doesn't display a .stx File, you can create a new one, by Opening a New empty Project, which will create a My Movie Grey Folder & a My Movie .stx File, Save to your My Projects Folder. Delete the My Movie Grey Folder & Rename the My Movie .stx File to the same name as your original Grey Folder."
So ...after finding my "lost" movie file, with its file name, under Documents\Pinnacle Studio\My Projects i then went through the following procedures using your great advice Colour;
  1. Make a copy of your found "lost" movie grey film icon file by right mouse clicking on your lost file and choosing "copy". Paste the copy into another folder in Documents where you can find it if need be
  2. Then go back to Documents\Pinnacle Studio\My Projects and right mouse click onto your grey film icon. Choose "rename". Then rename your "lost" grey film icon to a new file name but do not put .stc at the end of the file name, if you are operating VISTA and Pinnacle 12. This is important because Pinnacle 12 won't recognise the file later if you have .stc in the file name
  3. Open Pinnacle and go to the File Menu
  4. Click on New Project
  5. Open File Menu again and click on Save File as
  6. Give the file a name such as "Movie 7" and save it
  7. Close out of Pinnacle
  8. Open up Documents\Pinnacle Studio\My Projects and observe that you now have 2 new files there ...a grey film icon file saying Movie 7 AND a coloured Pinnacle icon file saying Movie 7
  9. Delete the grey icon file with the file name Movie 7
  10. Now give your coloured Pinnacle icon file the exact same rename as your precious "lost" renamed grey movie icon file, using the right mouse click on rename proceedure as explained in No.2 above.
  11. Close out of Documents file
  12. Now open up Pinnacle again
  13. Go to Menu and choose Open Project
  14. There you will see the coloured Pinnacle icon file with the new name of your "lost" movie file.
  15. Click onto its coloured Pinnacle icon, and watch your "lost" movie come into view again

Downloading off the internet


It depends on the website you visit.Some sites will have specific download buttons to click on & some other sites are not so obvious. I like to tell novices that the easiest place to download files to on your computer is your desktop. You can create a folder called "downloads" for the this use.

Example 1 with a specific download button. Select that button, when asked what do you want to do with this file use the drop down menu that is part of the pop-up window asking you what to do with this file. Scroll to the top of options list & find the folder you created on the desktop, click on that & then click the save button. Once downloaded you gain access to the file by clicking on the "downloads" folder.

Example 2 without the download button. When find a picture you want to download, right click on the item & you'll see some options. Click on the one that says "save as". Then you'll use the drop down menu like in the first example to select the folder where you want to save the picture.You use this technique for almost any type of file. If you need additional help, please respond to this post. Good luck!
