Question about Dell Dimension 4600 PC Desktop

1 Answer

My Dell Computer can no longer open e-mail files with a mp3 or a wmv ending, when I ask for web help it says I have a cood1197 problem ? Downloading WMP 11 didn't help. My Norton Antivirus allowed the download and said there was no problem with the source ? Can something else be causing this problem. Thanks, Ken

Well, you may still have an anomoly even if you have Norton Antivirus on the system.

Restore to an earlier time when the machine was functioning, and you may be pleasantly surprised on being able to open email files and .mp3 or .wmv files.

Good luck to you.

Hello, I was given this web mail to ask for help with downloading some software I got with my new Dell laptop a few months ago. PLease help. I got this Dell lap top through QVC.


Hello, Deena -

First you will need to know the web site address (URL) from which to download the software. Sorry, I cannot provide that to you. That web page address must have come with the information telling you to download the particular software.

After going to the proper web site, then follow the instructions from the Association of Software Professionals here:
http://asp-software.org/www/consumers/how-to-download-software/

Note: First I save any downloads to my Downloads folder on my computer. Then, I make sure there is a file folder in my C drive (Computer Operating System, Program Files folder) with the name of the software. Examples: Adobe Reader, Norton Antivirus, Dell Updates, etc. Then, I go to the Downloads folder, highlight the download by using a right click with the cursor on the icon for the downloaded software, choosing Cut, moving to the C drive (Operating System), choosing Program Files, then with a right click on the relevant software file name and choosing Paste to insert the downloaded file in the proper software file. You will then need to run and install the downloaded software.

If all of the instructions seem too hard to understand (they can be for any neophyte), if you have a male or female relative of age 12 or older, ask him or her for one-on-one help. If you do that, ask that person to talk you through the steps, with you doing the work on the computer (it is a method for you to learn better.) Plus, ask them to go slowly. through the steps and use a pencil as a pointer to the screen or the keyboard. :)

How to Watch WMV on MAC Easily


<p><span>WMV, Windows Media Video, is a compressed video file format for several proprietary codecs developed by Microsoft. As we know that there are so many videos with wmv formats, sometimes you download them and then open them , but all you get is a lot of crazy code. Are you looking for an easy to watch wmv videos, especially as a mac user ? This article is about how to play WMV files on Mac so that you can watch WMV on a Mac computer, introduces three most popular ways to play WMV videos and some WMV conversion apps.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><span>Tips: If you want to convert WMV videos, a video converter is needed here. <a href="http://www.macvideoconverter.org/">video converter mac</A> can converts video files such as MPEG1, MPEG2, MP4, 3GP, 3G2, AVI, Mpeg, HD video formats including MKV, TOD, MOD, TS, TP and TRP. and output video formats including MOV, FLV, MP4, AVI, and MPG.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><b><span>1. Watch WMV on Mac with VLC Media Player</SPAN></B><br> <p><span>VLC is a media player like QuickTime and Windows Media Player. Many view VLC is a good alternative to the these traditional media players because VLC is available for many different operating systems and is an open source software project that is supported by many dedicated programmers across the world.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><span>Until recently, only experimental versions of VLC for Mac OS X could play WMV videos, but no longer. VLC for Mac OS X now supports WMV video. You can download VLC from the VLC media player for Mac OS X download page.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><span>There are three types of downloads on this page: "Universal Binary", "Intel Package", and "PowerPC Package". The Universal Binary should work on any Mac, the Intel Package is meant for newer Intel-powered Macs, and the PowerPC Package is meant for older Macs that use the PowerPC processor. If you are unsure of whether you've got an Intel Mac or a PowerPC Mac, use the Universal Binary Package.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><span>Once downloaded, double click on the dmg file, wait for a Finder window to open, and then drag the VLC icon to your "Applications" folder. In addition, VLC media Player supports audio and video formats (MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX, mp3, ogg, ...) as well as DVDs, VCDs, and various streaming protocols.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><b><span>2. Watch WMV on Mac with Windows Media Player</SPAN></B><br> <p><span>Windows Media Player is available for Apple Macintosh computers. Microsoft no longer maintains or supports their WMP for Mac software, but they still provide it for you to download. You can download the software at Microsoft's website.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><span>When you go to the Windows Media Player 9 for Mac download page, you'll be given a choice between a .bin file and a .hqx file. If you have an older Mac, you should download the .hqx file. If you don't, then it doesn't really matter. Just make sure you get the English version.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><b><span>3. Watch WMV on Mac with Flip 4 Mac</SPAN></B><br> <p><span>As mentioned in the above that Microsoft won't upgrade windows media player 9, Microsoft did offer an alternative for Mac users: Windows Media Components for QuickTime Flip4Mac, which is developed by Telestream. With this QuickTime component, you can play WMV and WMA files directly in QuickTime Player and watch streamed WMV videos.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><span>If you just want to play WMV files on Mac, you can choose one of the above ways to do it. We recommend VLC player considering its powerful functions. But for converting WMV videos, this video converter mac will be a good choice, it is such an powerful software that it can act as <a href="http://www.macvideoconverter.org/guide/flv-converter-for-mac.html">flv converter for mac</A>, mp3 converter mac, <a href="http://www.macvideoconverter.org/guide/avi-converter-mac.html">avi converter mac</A>, mp4 converter mac, Mac MKV Converter, etc.</SPAN><span></SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN>

How to play wmv files


Windows Media Video, or WMV files, is a type of video that can be played on your computer and portable media players. In the past, computer users have been known to have difficulties opening these files due to a flaw in Windows Media Player or the WMV file. These issues have since been resolved with the newer versions of Windows Media Player and other similar media players. WMV files should now open and play with ease.

Begin by downloading the latest version of Windows Media Player (see link in Below). http://www.filewin.net/Windows-Media-Player/download/?p=AU-DNM Windows Media Player is the default player for Windows Media Video files. If you have just purchased a new computer, the computer probably already has the latest version of the program. Right click on the WMV file you want to play. Select "Open With." Several different programs will appear in a small box. Choose "Windows Media Player." Windows Media Player will then open on your computer. Wait for the WMV file to load. When it does, a message may appear in Windows Media Player informing you that the WMV file is missing an extension. Click "Yes" and Windows Media Player will still attempt to load the file. The WMV file should then begin playing in Windows Media Player. Hope this helps.

How do I open a PDF file on my Coby MP-707?


You will need to convert the PDF to a txt file to open the file on the Coby MP-707. You can carry it on the MP3 player to open with a computer with Adobe Reader or any Office Suite that handles pdf conversion. For example, Open Office will import pdf files if you add the pdf extension - the pdf will end up in Draw, IIRC.

I do not know how well the PDF to txt converters work. Here is one program, http://www.pdfzilla.com/zilla_pdf_to_txt_converter.html, that doesn't require you to upload the file to the internet first. Additional options can be found by google: enter PDF to TXT conversion.

This MP3 player can read MP3, WMA, MPG, VOB, MP4, AVI, FLV, WMV, JPG and TXT files. The Coby Media Manager included on the MP3 only player converts audio and video files.

I hope this helps.

Cant convert video to my philips sa3020 or 3021


Unlike most devices the Philips 3020 will only play videos that are converted using the software that came with it and it will only open wmv files. So these are the steps that you need to do to successfully to play video on the 3020:

1) convert video into wmv format using any wmv converter (unless it is already in wmv format). I use WinAVI video converter and it works perfectly.

2) after the file is converted then you need to open up the Philips media converter that came with your MP3 player and add the files that you just converted to wmv format and then hit convert. If you can't find it here is a link to the download http://www.p4c.philips.com/files/s/sa3020_37/sa3020_37_mcs_aen.zip


3) After the second conversion process then connect up your 3020 and drag and drop the files.

** The Philips media converter will only accepts files im wmv format so that is why the first conversion step is necessary. If you try to open any other format it will not respond.

Hope this helps!
