Limit Windows VCACHE setting to 32 Meg regardless of the
amount of RAM on the system. I suggest you download and install Cacheman (www.outertech.com). This application lets you change the VCACHE settings easily. Set maximum and minimum disk cache to 32768 and CHUNKSIZE to 512.


Also, I got off the phone with the upper level tech of Microsoft and my problem with FA310 is that mine are C1 or C2 hardware versions which are NDIS (Network Driver Interface Specification) 3. WinME needs NDIS 4 and "prefers" NDIS 5. To see what NDIS your network card is go to regedit LOCAL MACHINE>System>Current Control Set>Services>Class>Net>0000>Ndi>Interfaces


You can see if your network card is on the Hardware Compatibility List that Microsoft certifies at: http://www.microsoft.com/hcl/default.asp

There are several ways to achieve this, below I've listed two.
  1. Purchase an external USB CD/DVD Drive.
  2. Create a disk image of the CD, transfer the image to your new machine, then use a virtual disk to mount the image and use it as you would a normal CD drive.
Obviously, the first option is going to be the easiest to do. However, it'll cost you, on average, about $40 dollars.
The second option is time consuming and confusing to a novice or someone who may not have done it before. I'll go ahead and explain how to do it, in case you're looking to save money.
First, we need to create the image file.

  1. Download and install MagicISO on to a machine with an optical drive. (The free version has all the features you'll need, there is no need to purchase it.)
  2. Insert your Quark XPress CD into the systems optical drive.
  3. Under the start menu, find an open MagicISO
  4. With MagicISO open, click on Tools > Make ISO from CD/DVD-ROM
  5. In the Make ISO from CD/DVD-ROM dialog, click the drop-down menu next to CD/DVD-Driver and select the device that has your CD in it.
  6. In the Make ISO from CD/DVD-ROM dialog, click the icon of a folder next to the Output File input field, browse to your Desktop and enter an appropriate file name. (eg. Quark XPress 8.1.6.uif)
  7. Click OK
Now that we've created the image file, we need to transfer it to your new computer. If the Quark XPress 8.1.6 was in-fact a CD and not a DVD, the disk image shouldn't be any larger than 700MB. Therefore, if you have USB Thumb Drive 1GB or larger, you can use it to transfer the image.
Alternatively, if you connect them both to the same LAN (Local Area Network) and transfer the files over the network. To do this:

  1. On the machine with the disk image, go to click Start then type "sharing" and open the Network and Sharing Center
  2. In the left column, click on Change advanced sharing settings
  3. Now ensure that Public folder sharing is turned on.
  4. Browse to your Desktop and select the image file, press Ctrl + X to Cut the file.
  5. Next, browse to C:\Users\Public\Downloads and press Ctrl + V to Paste the image file.
  6. On your new laptop, ensure that you're connected to the network.
  7. Now, open My Computer and in the left column click on Network
  8. The other system should appear, click on it, then open Users > Public > Downloads.
  9. You should now see the image file, select it and press Ctrl + C to Copy it.
  10. Browse to the Desktop on and press Ctrl + V to paste it and wait for it to transfer. Depending on your network speeds, and wireless signal quality, it may take several minutes.
Lastly, you need to be able to install the software. Therefore, we'll create a virtual disk.

  1. Download and install MagicDisk (Freeware)
  2. After it's installed, it will automatically run. You will find an icon of a hand holding a disk in the Windows Taskbar (next to the clock).
  3. MagicDisk should automatically create one virtual disk. However, to make sure, right-click on the icon and hover over Set Number of Drives then click 1 Drive in the sub-menu.
  4. Now, right-click the icon again, hover over Virtual CD/DVD-ROM. One item should appear as a sub-menu, it should say something like E: No Media. Mouse-over the sub-menu, then in the 3rd-tier menu select Mount.
  5. A new dialog will appear, browse to your Desktop and select your image file. Click Open
  6. Your virtual drive should now auto-play the disk image. If it does not, you can launch it manually under My Computer.
As a final note, if you are not on the same network and don't have any physical medium to transfer the files, you can always upload the file to a free file sharing or data backup service such as DropBox (provided that the file is not too large). However, this will likely take a long time as it's dependent on your internet connections speed.

Have you ever had any music, video, photo, or document files you wished you...


Have you ever had any music, video, photo, or document files you wished you could share easily between the various computers in your native Mac OS X network with ease? How about if you could share files just the same with a mixed network consisting of Macs and PCs? Or vise-versa?

Well now, there is a simple tool you can use, where you don't have to look so far or spend enormous amounts of time and energy, setting up complex file sharing infrastructure within your network. Well.. I mean you can if you want to...

But if you like, me, with a mixed network of Macs and PCs I could do that, but I don't really want to contribute that time unnecessarily.

That is how I found Dropbox.

Dropbox, is an online backup and file syncing service, that is quite easy to setup on any computer or laptop you have, Mac, PC, Linux, or even the iPhone. Once you have downloaded and installed it on your computers, literally in less than 5 minutes for each computer, you will be sharing files in no time.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
So how do you get started in Dropbox?

It is an extremely simple 4-step process.

1.) Go to the website and you will immediately be greeted, with a landing page, that automatically shouts "Download Me Now!" to you.

Download Link: http://www.dropbox.com

Once you visit the home page, this is what you will see:
98b8454.png


2.) Download Dropbox

3.) Install Dropbox

4.) Start dragging files, folders and applications into Dropbox

It is as simple as that!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Once Dropbox is installed on your Mac or PC, just look on the Apple menu bar (for Mac) or the System Tray (for Windows) and you will see a small distinctive little box which looks like this:

dadc6e9.png


But that little box, leads to ways of being able to do big things for file sharing and even backing up some key files or folders from your Mac. Very easy to open and access...

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} This window, all you will need to access and use your Dropbox:

79a4513.png

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
To get a Dropbox account, all you need is an email account to setup Dropbox on your computer or laptop.

You are even able to setup a free 2 Gig account and if you feel you will need more space, because you enjoy using dropbox more than you realized, you can upgrade to the monthly Pro 50 (50 Gigs of space) or Pro 100 (100 Gigs of space) Dropbox plans, for low prices ranging from $9.99 to $19.99 a month respectively.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
For now however, just to get a feel of this great online backup and file syncing service, try the free 2 Gig plan and see for yourself, why I am recommending this service as a great solution to your file sharing woes between your computers within your network.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Since using this sharing application, I have not had any issues with sharing files, folders or applications of any kind with any of my computers with Dropbox installed.

Real case and point:

At anytime, if I want to drop a movie into my daughter's Dropbox on her Power Mac from my iMac, I simply drop the movie into my Dropbox folder and let her know. She then checks her Dropbox and in moments, she has her movie to now watch at her leisure.

NOW HOW SEAMLESS IS THAT?
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dropbox is simple to use and surprisingly fast in transferring files.

Of course the file transfer from Dropbox is contingent upon the power and RAM capacity of your Mac(s) or PC(s) as well as your network bandwidth and connection speeds, but once you experience Dropbox and its file sharing efficiency for yourself, you will get the full picture.

I hope this Mac OS X File Share tip from Fixya support will prove beneficial to you. However, if you don't try Dropbox, how will you know what it can do to enhance your general file sharing experiences positively?

Thanks for reviewing this Mac Fixya Tip!

Just got new HP laptop and i'd like to transfer photo's and some files from my old HP desk top computer. What do I need to do this?


If the old computer still works, see the following. Otherwise look for the * for a solution further below. If the old desktop has Windows XP SP3 or newer, you can use the easy transfer wizard. It is included in Windows 7.

If the old desktop has a network connection, you can use an ethernet switch to create a network to share files. Once both computers recognize the switch, set up a network. If you have Windows 7 on one computer and do not have it on the other, do not use the Homegroup network. This may come up automatically; otherwise, use the Network Control Panel and add a network. Start the Easy Transfer Wizard and set this computer as the new computer. There may be an option to get the Transfer Wizard to copy and install to the old computer. Note the code for the Easy Transfer Wizard. Then install the Windows Easy Transfer Wizard on the old computer and launch it. Set this computer as the old computer. Use the code given in on the first computer to synch the transfer. Go through the settings to select the files to transfer and then start the transfer. Prepare to wait a while for the transfer.

If you can't use the Easy Transfer Wizard, set the hard drive on one computer to Share (click Computer (My Computer) and right click on the hard drive and select Properties. Then choose the Sharing tab. Enable Sharing by clicking the Share button.) On the other computer, map to a network drive and locate the Shared drive. Drag and drop the files to the new computer.

If you already have a network connection to a cable or DSL router, you will be asked about "New network found" and to define it. Make sure to make it the home network on both computers. (If you were directly connected to a cable or DSL modem, then you will again get this question. Note the switch will not let your computers talk to the outside network without a router though.)

(Alternatively, use a cross-over ethernet cable with the direct cable networking option.)

Other options: use the Microsoft Easy Transfer Wizard to put the photos and files on a DVD, external hard drive or flash drive with sufficient capacity. You may need to download and install this program to the old computer. For the optical drive option, you need a DVD-RW drive on the desktop and a DVD reader (minimum) on the laptop. (You can use an external optical drive, if you have one.) Another option is a USB file transfer device. Some of these come with the Easy Transfer Wizard on their install disc.

*If the old computer will not turn on, take the hard drive out of the computer and use a USB to IDE/SATA adapter. Follow the directions for the device and attach it to a USB port on the laptop. See if the drive mounts (is listed when you open the Computer File Explorer). Then drag and drop the files from one drive to another.

Note you may need to change the owner of the files on the new computer. (This doesn't apply with the Easy Transfer Wizard if the old user is made equivalent to the new user in the setup of the wizard.) To change the owner, right click on the file in the File Explorer and choose the Security tab. Select the Advanced settings.

I hope this helps.

Speed up viewing shared files across networks


Speed up viewing shared files across a network

Windows 2000 & XP machines delay as long as 30 seconds when you try to view shared files across a network because Windows is using the extra time to search the remote computer for any Scheduled Tasks. Here's how to prevent this remote search for Scheduled Tasks:
Open up the Registry and go to :

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Explorer/RemoteComputer/NameSpace

Under that branch, select the key :

{D6277990-4C6A-11CF-8D87-00AA0060F5BF}

and delete it.

If you like you may want to export the exact branch so that you can restore the key if necessary. This fix is so effective that it doesn't require a reboot and you can almost immediately determine yourself how much it speeds up your browsing processes.

Purchased a gigaware cat5e crossover network cable to transfer files from one older computer to a new one. Cant get it to tranfer info.


So that you will be able to transfer your file from one PC to the other you have to share your folder first.
1. Share your folder in your old computer. Right click the folder then click Properties and Choose Sharing Tab. Check Share this folder (For windows 7 or vista you have to click Advance sharing button first) 2. Open your explorer from the other computer and Choose Network. Now, you should see the shared folder where your files are. Then start copying the files to your new computer.
*Note: you can also delete the files from the other computer by setting permission of the folder properties.

My pictures transfer to the computer too slowly.


If you are transferring Tiff files or video clips, you can expect the transfer to take much longer than it does for JPEG files, due to large file sizes. If your system has less than 32MB RAM, the transfer speed may be slower.

My pictures transfer to the computer too slowly.


If you are transferring Tiff files or video clips, you can expect the transfer to take much longer than it does for JPEG files, due to large file sizes. The transfer speed is especially slow when you are using a serial connection. If your system has less than 32MB RAM, the transfer speed may be slow. Try using virtual memory. See your computer documentation or system help for more information. Check the port setting in your Windows Control Panel. You may need to set your port to a faster speed. See your Windows documentation or help system for more information. If you're transferring pictures to an application through EPSON Photo!3 and you use the PhotoEnhance(tm) feature, the transfer will take longer. Try transferring without PhotoEnhance.
