NO! what is loaded on the netbook with CE is what you are stuck with unless you are willing to re-flash the operating system.

Can not get the flash player to download on this sylvania window embedded ce 6.0.

Windows CE has absolutely nothing in common with the real Windows except for the name - only programs made especially for it will run and Flash isn't one of them. Actually no program made for any Windows version will work in CE so if you hoped to use it as a laptop you're out of luck - it's effectively useless.
Return it and get a real Windows pc, even a 10 year old one that you can buy from a liquidation or pawn shop will be better than this junk.

I can't download Adobe Flash for my Sylvania & inch mini-Nebook

That is because your netbook runs Windows CE, that is totally different from all other Windows Os's - they have absolutely nothing in common, just the name. Almost no program made for other Windowses will work in CE , so no Flash either.

I have a mini 7" laptop with operating system

There are supposedly ways to do it, but they require using TCPMP like you said. I will post the exact instructions below. Windows CE is actually what is used on PDA's and Phones and isnt ideal for a mini laptop or netbook. Do you use your netbook for mainly light stuff like internet and word processing? I would suggest going with a Linux OS like Ubuntu, it runs very fast on light resources and you can load everything you need, and for free. Here are the instructions for TCPMP if you want to try it again:

  • 1

  • Download TCPMP on your Windows CE browser (see link in Resources section).

  • 2

    Double-click the file once the download has finished to begin installing the media player to your Windows CE device. If prompted for an installation directory, click "Main Memory."

  • 3

    Download FlashVideoBundle (see link in Resources section), then double-click the file to install it. Choose the same location to install this file.

  • 4

    Turn your Windows CE device on and off. Click "Start," then "Programs." Click "Video Sites" to load up a list of compatible video sites (including YouTube). Click "TCPMP" to load the settings for your player. Change any of the settings to your personal preference, then click "OK."

    Watch YouTube videos on your Windows CE device as you normally would on a full version of windows.

    I \n having a problem that I cant download adobe shockwave or flash player please help?

    Those particular netbooks are loaded with versions of Windows CE which is very very different from the other versions of Windows, so prgrams that you could just download for like windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, won't necessarily work on a Windows CE machine. Windows CE is a small embedded operating system that can have very specific features. The main issue you're going to encounter is that Windows CE can be "tailor-made" for each company that orders copies of it, so you will have to contact Sylvania and find out the exact features of the Operating System that they ordered from Microsoft. HOWEVER, I have heard rumors of Flash Lite for the Pocet PC working on the Sylvania netbooks, so you can attempt to download that.

    Hope this helps, if not, please comment back and let us know!

    Bought a sylvania netbook while in the usa but unable to download a version of flash player that works with windows ce any help would be appreciated

    It is my understanding that Flash Player only works with certain versions of Windows. Check the Microsoft website to verify whether or not it supports Windows CE.

    How to get correct codec

    For simplicity depending on your Windows Operating System(OS), easiest is just to install "K-Lite Mega Codec Pack or K-Lite Codec Pack" codec. These packages are compatible ot OS(XP, Vista & Win7 - 32bit(x86)). If your system is 64bit(x64), you can also download & install the 64bit version too. You can install both 32&64 bit versions together if your OS is 64bit.

    Hope it helps.

    To list your CE version, you can go to the Today screen and select the Start button to pull down the menu. Select Settings (not HP settings). From the Settings screen, select the System tab at the bottom. At the top of this page, select About. This will list your CE version. Mine is Version 3.0.9348 (Build 9616). It also will list the Processor (SH3) and Memory (15.87 MB).
