Here it is:
Since I had bought the game at BEST BUY I took the second game down there and marched to the GEEK SQUAD counter and told them THE sales people said this woould work on my Windows XP computer. (Obviously it didn't I said.) I told them to take the disk and check it out and TELL me what I needed to do and what the problem was. They did and it loaded on their computer beautifully! WHAT WAS THE PROBLEM? Answer: I needed a DVD DRIVE. HOW DID I SOLVE THE PROBLEM?...I went to OFFICE MAX and they told me to buy the EXTERNAL DVD RECORDER for $99.00. It would then load up and play my game. It did just that and I love the game SO much....I am now going to go back to best buy and buy the Card games and the Boardgames!!!! I DID NOT NEED TO PURCHASE YOUR ANSWER FOR THE $9.99 price. I HOPE THIS HELPS EVERYONE WHO IS HAVING THIS TROUBLE WITH THESE GAMES...INCIDENTLY, I figured how to get administrator's priviledges to play the new games. AND it's not a little picture with your name and computer administrator under it. It will say ADMINISTRATOR in big letters and you log on to this....the trick? As soon as you turn the computer on rapidly keep pressing F8 until you get to a message screen that says safe mode...arrow up to this, click on it, and then do what it says on the screen..................

Vizio vbr210 error 11000404 How do I update firmware to watch newer blu ray movies?

I had the same problem -- we even returned the disc and got a new one. Go to the Vizio site and download the firmware for your player. Put it on a USB stick and plug it into the player. Follow the onscreen instructions (basically just press OK). The entire process takes less than 5 minutes from download to finish.

The Hunger Games works perfectly now.

I tried to play the Casino Royale Blu Ray disc. Disc reads and plays the included promotions for other movies. When I get to the opening screen for the actual feature, none of the buttons on the remote...

so long as its not a burned disc, in which the copyrights may have not transfered, it should work. However, try another blu-raydisc in player, if that works, its is the format of the disc. ask someone you know if they have the casino royale blu-ray and try their copy. try to isolate the issue as to the disc or player, if its the player, then contact the mfg. tech support.

I have a xbox 360 DG-16D2S 74850C i tried flashing it and lost my firmware now it lock cant gey the tray to come out


The reason your tray would not come out is because the firmware is lost now its controls are not functioning.

Try to download the games firmware on a computer and transfer it to an external hard disc.

Connect the external hard disk to your console and try to update the firmware on to your xbox.

Then you Turn on your Xbox 360, it will start automatically, press the "Xbox" button and then "Y" to go to the Dashboard.
Go to the "My Xbox" tab.

Scroll to the end and select "System Settings.
Scroll to the bottom and select "Initial Setup." Confirm that you wish to run the Initial Setup utility. Once the program completes, your Xbox will restart. You may need to perform a firmware update to play games or to connect to Xbox Live.

You can also try this if that does not help,

  1. The first thing that you want to do is restart your console. If you can't restart, simply unplug your console, and plug it back in.
  2. The next thing you want to do is check all the cables on the back of your Xbox. If you have to, pull out each one, and put them back in place.
  3. The next step you'll want to try is by removing the hard drive, and putting it back in. If you have another one laying around, try placing that one instead to see if that works.
  4. If you've been trying the open disk error with the same game, try putting in a newer game. It may be the game's problem.
  5. The last thing that you want to try BUT keep in mind that it's going to void your warranty, so do it at your own risk! You'll want to open up your Xbox, clean out the dust on the inside, and clean the DVD lenses with a Q TIP, or a cotton bud.
You can also open it manually, by doind the following;

urn off the Xbox and unplug anything that is hooked to the front of the Xbox like a memory card or controller, don't worry about the cords on the back.
Remove the ,face plate of the Xbox by pulling from the notch at the end of the Xbox if it were upright (see picture). Pull gently fromt he notch until you fell some tension then put a little force into it, it will feel like you are beraking it but its fine.
Insert your wire, like a folded out paper clip, into of the holes in the picture depending on what type of Xbox you have. It takes a little bit of pressure to hit the button. The tray will pop open and want to close really fast so you might have to grab it.

Take care

My purse was stolen yesterday at San Manuel Casino it had all my info in it including my SSI card and DL, and ID card how do I protect myself and where do I go report it?

Same thing happened to me at a different casino. Report it to hotel security, file a police report, contact all your credit card companies, your state's DMV, your bank, cellphone operator, etc. For your SS number, call the credit reporting bureaus (Experian, TransUnion, Equifax) to set up a fraud alert.
Make sure to follow up with the casino, the police, and all your companies. Don't give up because in my situation I didn't get answers or action on my case until I spoke with at least five different people and kept pursuing it.
Good luck!

I had to reinstall windows xp and now when i scroll up or down my screen is doing this rippling thing

That is because you haven't reinstalled your Video Driver, and the screen refresh rate is slower than normal.
A simple video driver install will cure that.

I know there are games in my psp but the psp is not showing them

you have to save the games in your PSP/GAME Folder. The PBP Files should have its own folder under the GAME Folder and the games should appear when you click on it in the XMB Game Menu.

New Sharp BD-HP16U won't play Blu Ray Discs

You need to force the player to the the Top Menu of the disc.
The way to do this is: load disc, wait until it says "Reading Completed" (about 1 minute).

Wait for the PLAY icon ">" to show in the upper right corner (this may take up to 30-40 secs).

Once you see the ">" Hit the STOP button on the remote to get to the player's splash screen.

From the Sharp splash screen Hit the "Top Menu/Title List" button on the remote and wait for the circulating dots and then the disc menu appears.
Play the movie from the menu and you should be good to go.
