    There have been a rash of complaints about this model of netbook on FixYa. The netbook is apparently a piece of junk.

    I sugget taking it back for a refund and buying an Asus netbook instead. I'm serious here. This Sylvania netbook is apparently garbage.

Toggle to "downloads". Follow directions to re-install Win CE 6 on a Sylvania Netbook that came with Win CE 6. Also join:

If you actually have the G-Netbook you need to contact digitalgadgets tech support.

Is there a adobe flasher for my slyvania netbook?

If this is a SYNET07526, then NO! as adobe is made for Win XP and Up only. Your system has WIN CE 6 which will not handle Adobe Flash.

My daugther has a sylvania netbook and I cannot get her usb to read her removabale cd drive? please help

If youare referring to the Sylvania SYNET07526 using Win CE 6, then a CD player is not recognized by the operating system, so you can not add this to that machine. It does recognize memory devices such as thumb drives and USB drives of most sizes that can be used to store anything you download. The application Media Player can play some files from the internet. that is just about all it can do.

Trying to download flash for the sylvania 7inch netbook. it uses windows

You cannot use Flash as that program is for Windows Xp,or Win7, there is no port of it that will run on a CE machine. For that matter you nhave to usewhat was supplied with the machine untill the seller decides to upgrade and include other apps that are written specifically for Win CE.

I have a sylvania netbook for my kid and cant download adobe flash player help?

Adobe FLASH Player will not work on a Win CE operating system, of which your netbook has. You are limited to using the applications that you have on your desk top as no one has as yet ported Adobe to this system

Cannot get adobe for Sylvania 7'' netbook

No you cannot, as Adobe has not seen fit to develop a system to be added to CE. The Win CE system was really developed for embedded low memory systems such as telephones tablets etc. The Adobe products take a very large amount of memory and large fast processors, of which the 8505 found in most CE systems is not very fast, nor can handle any thing outside of it's embeded software. You have to stay with in the confines of what you have until some programmer decides to add a workable system to the CE system.

I have a brandnew 7'' Windows CE Sylvania NetBook, but, I can't download a newer version for internet, and for youtube, it lets me go to youtube, but won't let me watch the videos, and to download my mp3...

No you can not. You are stuck with what was incorporated into Win CE that you have on the system. You can use what you have but cannot add to it. See for a review of the machine.

I went to thesylvanna website and downloaded the update and it wiped all the programs. I can;t do any thing on it.

This up date is a total port of the Win CE 6 OS, and there are specific things that you have to do in order to flash your system. see my TIP at

All is not lost, if you follow the detail exactly you can re-flash the system

The Sylvania 7" G-Netbook PC uses Windows CE. The only way to install SOFTWARE (not spyware) on it, is downloading only software for Windows CE.

You can find software in internet using google: "windows ce download shareware"

I would like to know if you can use MAGIC JACK with this netbook?

Is this the Win CE Netbook? If it is, the answer appears to be no. The 7" Win CE book apparently will not install 3rd party applications. It will accept a Wifi driver update I downloaded from digitalgadgets tech support though.
