Most usb modems are set up for windows by default so you have to ask the usb modem provider for the ubuntu driver..

I cannot get Ubuntu to load onto my Vaio PCV-RZ10. I have already partitioned the HDD with 30 Gig, loaded the OS (Ubuntu) I get a (Not Support) error message. Any ideas?


The problem is your computer is not compatable to run the Ubuntu operational system, it comes up not supported. But you can go online to forums that deal with these types of problems, because there are a lot of people out there that swear by this system.

I have windows os and there is a autorun.inf something hidden file in my all drives.my avira antivirus has blocked that file.and i want to know that is the file safe or it is going to harm my pc.what...


Autorun.inf is the primary instruction file associated with the Autorun function. Autorun.inf itself is a simple text-based configuration file that tells the operating system which executable to start, which icon to use, and which additional menu commands to make available. In other words, autorun.inf tells Windows how to deal open the presentation and treat the contents of the CD.


That being said, it would depend on what it is trying to run automatically. If it is trying to run iTunes automatically that is one thing, but if it is running a virus automatically it would not be safe.

You can right click on the file, and edit it with notepad/wordpad to find out what program it is trying to run.

Run or install??, on what type of PC???, from what media to what kind of media???, usually you download the .ISO file from the UBUNTU web site, burn it to a CD or DVD (the version suitable for your type of PC) than you BOOT the PC with the LIVE CD you created, and VOILA! UBUNTU is RUNNING... Don't forget grate power comes with grate responsibilities...

CD html presentation-hyperlinks don't work with other pc's


To create an Autorun-enabled CD-ROM, proceed as follows:
  • Create an Autorun.inf File
    Autorun.inf is a text file that is located in the root folder of your application CD-ROM. It provides to the computer the name and the location of the startup program for your application that is installed when the CD-ROM is inserted. The Autorun.inf file can also contain optional information including the following:
  • The name of a file that contains an icon that represents your application's CD-ROM drive. This icon appears in Windows Explorer instead of the standard drive icon.
  • Additional commands for the shortcut menu that appears when the user right-clicks the CD-ROM icon. You can also specify the default command that runs when the user double-clicks the icon. Autorun.inf files are similar to .ini files.
  • The [autorun] section contains the default Autorun commands. All Autorun.inf files must have an [autorun] section.
  • icon: Specifies the path and the file name of an application-specific icon for the CD-ROM drive.
  • open: Specifies the path and the file name of the startup application.

Autorun.infThe following is an example of a simple Autorun.inf file. It specifies Filename.exe as the startup application. The second icon represents the CD-ROM drive instead of the standard drive icon.
[autorun]
open=Filename.exe
icon=Filename.ico

Autorun.inf doesn't open file in internet browser


Hello ksharp628,

I use a program called autorun.exe One limitation of the standard AutoRun facility is the fact that it will only run executable programs; it will not by itself open document files such as web pages or text files. AutoRun.exe is designed to circumvent this restriction: it will open any number of document files or start executable programs. Moreover, it is smart enough to use a sensible fall-back strategy if no documents can be opened, perhaps because the target system does not have the required support for those document types.

example of my autorun.inf
[autorun]
open=autorun.exe msn.html
action=Run MSN.com
icon=msn.ico

in root of thumb drive I have Autorun.exe Autorun.inf MSN.html and my ICON msn.ico wich i did a search for on my computer

I hade t make and msn.html

my edited msn.html file open in txt format
<meta HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" content="0; url=http://www.msn.com">

You can replace with what ever website you want and rename it to that.

This autrun.inf setup will popup the autrun box and ask you pick an option. this is as close to running the webpage when inserting the usb drive. The program comes with a .pdf on many options wich can be used with autorun.exe.

the link to the autrun.exe program is found below.

Hope this helps you, take care.

I want to connect a ZTE MF626 USB 3G modem to a linux system. How can I do It?


New to linux and having a few problems despite a very good tutorial here for u.

I am only seeing the usb drive with 3connect software in it - this 3connect usb drive that I can see has the windows installers and autorun files in and also has a folder called LINUXFILES which does have and .rpm package in.

I received the ZTE MF627 today from 3 UK, the customer service people and technical support all told me it worked on Linux but I was a little sceptical.

Amazingly I plugged it in and it does have Linux drivers on the USB drive - and they work in Ubuntu!

There's no instructions however, and I am certainly no Ubuntu expert but I managed to get it working in about 30 seconds. As I said though, I am no expert so you may want to get confirmation from someone else before following what I did but it is up to you.

I copied the Linux files across to my Desktop, then opened a terminal and navigated to the folder on the desktop:

cd Desktop

cd LinuxUI

One inside the folder I noticed a file named install.sh so I did something that I remembered from another Linux installation years ago, I am not sure if this is how you are meant to do it on Ubuntu.

sudo sh install.sh

That installed the drivers and the little 3 UK program under Applications>Internet>3UK.

I plugged it in ran the program and it works perfectly. I don't think you can use it as USB storage though.

have a gr8 day ahead.
