    yes I decompress the files first, then try to add the file to my emu., but to no avail. My computer keeps telling me it needs to know what program created it first. It does that for all programs I download.

    yes i'm uncompressing my rar files. My ip won't find the extention? that it needs to run the file

  • Morphaeus Mar 18, 2008

    I have mozilla firefox as my ip. Every time I download a program, any program or file, I uncompress it and when I try to run it after installation it says that it first has to find what program created it. It won't allow me to use any program or file that I download.

  • Morphaeus Mar 19, 2008

    o.k. I download the program and it enters a sub menu. Then I extract all files and when my files are done extracting an error message appears telling me that the program can't run without finding what created it first.

    OK, Firefox isn't your IP, it's just your browser.

    I also use Firefox, and never ran into that when downloading any files. I usually just save them to my desktop, or wherever, and manually decompress them.

    Where exactly are you saving the downloaded files? It sounds as though you're trying to execute the file from within Firefox. Where do you have Firefox configured to save the files?

    Sorry for all the questions, I am just trying to get a better understanding of what is causing the problem.

    I'm not sure what you mean by your 'IP' won't find the extension.

    Is this happening on any particular file, or all of them?

    Are you un-compressing the rar files first?

How to Play RAR Files?


To play an RAR-compressed video, just start up VLC, go to Open > File, and select the RAR file. It should open and play as if it were just a video. This also works with videos spread over multiple RAR files, but you'll need the first and last part of thefile completely downloaded.

PLAY HD CONTENT IN YOUR LOW PROCESSOR SPEED PC TOO.


Playing HD content in your pc which got low processing speed with lots of lagging and poor synchronization of audio and video, has become a great issue. Here is the solution for that problem.

Step 1 : Download Media Player Classic - Home Cinema from : http://mpc-hc.sourceforge.net/.

Step 2 : Download Core AVC Video Decoder from http://hotfile.com/dl/47202507/bb451dd/CoreAVC_H264_Video_Codec_Pro_v2.0.0.rar.html
Or
http://rapidshare.com/files/396874926/CoreAVC_H264_Video_Codec_Pro_v2.0.0.rar

Step 3 : Install Media Player Classic Home Cinema. And now install CoreAVC Video decoder.

Step 4 : Open Media Player Classic Home Cinema. And click VIEW->OPTION.

Step 5 : OPTION windows appears. Select "External Filters " and click "Add Filter" and then select "CoreAVC Video Decoder" from the list and click OK.

Step 6 : In that same "External Filters" window choose "prefer" radio button visible under " add filter" button. Click OK.

Step 7 : You are DONE. Now your Laptop/PC will play HD content easily. Sometimes this Decoder is supported by Windows Media Player and it will also play the HD content easily after you follow the above steps properly.

Note : In some cases, when you install the Core AVC Video Decoder, even Windows Media Player and other media player make use of it and you can run any kind of video files, even you can run FULL HD Videos in Windows Media Player Itself.

The Media Player Home Classic is preferred because, it buffers the whole video first (very fastly) and then it plays. Hence there is no lag in playing Videos.

Thank You.

Regarding you cant play mkv file and other video format. Did your computer has a software to make all video can run that we called codec code? Try to install it and play it. Maybe this software can help This is a link to download the codec code.

Thank and have a nice day..

Extract protected rar files


To extracted protected a protected rar file, you can use Winrar.
Download and install Winrar and then open your rar file using the program. It'll ask you for your password. You must have the password to extract the file. If you don't know it, then you will not be able to extract the file. Once you've got the file open, just choose where you want to extract it to and you're done.
Hope that helps.

DRIVER DISC - NOT RECOGNISED BY COMPUTER ON WHICH I,M TRYING TO INSTALL


CD/DVD player is no good (does it play other discs and are they DVD or CD that it plays, could be a dirty laser use cleaning disc), the disc is not compatible with your player (DVD disc in CD player), corrupt disc, no auto-run on disc, no files on disc. The list is quite long. have you tried to read the disc in my computer screen (presuming your using windows) as the files might be in a compressed format (.zip or .rar) in which case you might have to unpack them. If the disc is not recognised at all try it on a different machine (a friends) and see if it will read on that if it does then copy the files to a new disc and try again. other than that you can always go the the makers web site and download any drivers from there support area's. Any further help required let me know.

Sir, i want to sound driver 845gv/gl intel i download many driver but not support, please help me


Hello,

You can play both Playstation and Playstation 2 games on PC using emulator softwares.We don't support piracy here so do this only if you have a original Playstation disc.And you will need to dump your bios from your own PS2,since the emulator needs those files to play the games on your pc.For further details on how to configure the emulators you can checkout the forums and official websites of the emulators themselves.

Here is the link for PS2 emulator http://pcsx2.net/downloads.php download the first one named
pcsx2 0.9.6 installer.And here is its configuration guide http://forums.pcsx2.net/Thread-Official-English-PCSX2-configuration-guide-v0-9-6

That was for Playstation 2,if you want to play only PlayStation 1 games then download epsxe from this page along with the config utility http://www.emulator-zone.com/doc.php/psx/epsxe.html

Thanks for using Fixya!

How to open driver


Right click on the driver, then choose run. Some drivers are stored on a .zip or .rar file. You can find this out by looking at the end of the file name or right clicking the file name and choosing properties at the bottom. You need to have a .zip or .rar wizard. Try downloading it and installing this first. Try downloading it at downloads.com.

Downloaded games ends with a .zip .rar .exe or .msi file format in order to install the downloaded file. If your unable to open the format it means your download is corrupted or you have downloaded the wrong file format.
