Question about Compaq Armada E500 Notebook

1 Answer

Wondering about DVD

Is it possible to have my pc man install a DVD Player on my Compaq Armada E500? Also I have heard the Armada is for Gamming not pictures. I am not going to be doing any Games. Which Compaq Notebook is good for pictures and DVD ? My son in law gave me 2 extra memory chips. Can I save those for when I get the other Notebook for Pictures and DVD.

How do i connect crw-785 to compaq armada e500


This e500 has USB1.0 and transfer rate will be slow. If you use Win 98 then install the USB driver (get on web) first. Install software then plug in the USB lead from the crw-785 and don't forget to plug in the DC adaptor for the drive, (e500 USB port does not have enough power to run external drives other than some older thumbdrives).

Windows 98 se, xp not installed to compaq armada E500 pc notebook


First, format the hard drive and make sure it is in FAT or FAT32 for Windows 98 install. Then do your partitioning etc and should work. If it doesn't, it is possibly a hardware fault.

Here is the site for the drivers for the laptop :

Very little information hadeks. You inserted a DVD & formated it or inserted a DVD/ RW disk & formated it. Burned some music/video to it & now it does not play. The only type of DVD that needs formated is a DVD/RW.

Make sure your PC supports the format. If your PC does not support the format, music or video your PC will not play it.
ex: mp3, wma, avi & mpeg ect.
Take a look at these two links. They may help you to understand formats for DVD's.
