The videos are probably in motion JPEG format and it's common for camera and cellphone makers to somehow create a proprietary format for their files. If your cellphone model has a codec for PCs install that and the PC will be able to suss out what to do with those files. What are the filenames, anyhow?

Become more computer literate by installing a program (typically free, e.g. from searching on VersionTracker or otherwise) that identifies file types and you can perhaps find some handy utilities (free or shareware or otherwise) which can help you edit and transcode the video. See also MPlayer HQ. Contrawise you could search for programs that work on your cellphone's application processor to reencode or use data on the phone; you can take a shot of the barcode on some tea for example, and a program would look up whether you (for example) liked it last time or not.

After increasing my vga memory my pc wont work why?


Several things I will have to assume. You have onboard graphics, possibly not enough memory, are attempting to watch high resolution videos, are using a desktop and are running Windows 7 and are watching videos from a DVD.
The fist thing to check is how much memory you have. Any less that 8MiB and your system will struggle. Also give the system a spring clean.
OnBoard graphics has many restrictions because it relies on available resources. To increase it's performance you should shut down every other app that is running, except essential like anti virus and sound of course. if you are capable you could set up a second user that has the minimum running and log onto that for video.
If you are an avid video watcher then an investment in a separate graphics card with its own memory would increase your enjoyment 1000%. The cost can vary so get the best your budget will allow. Even a low end card will make a difference.
The ins and outs on how to do all these things are beyond the scope of this site as it would require many pages and graphics.
As a summary you should.
1. Increase physical memory to 8GiB or more if you are running Vista or above.
2. Minimize resource sharing by closing non necessary apps (including email, browsers, instant messengers)
3. Upgrade to a separate graphics card
4. Download and run CCleaner. It is free and will clean out your system safely.
5. Reverse what you did in the BIOS settings
The other point is if you are watching downloaded videos make sure you choose a Standard Definition copy. eg MP4 or Divx
As far as your CD Drive is concerned it could be a number of things from a damage drive to lack of power source.

Memory card


are you using a multi slot card reader? internal or external? it may show the drives but it will only let you access them if a card is in one of the slots. usually when you put a card in the slot while the PC is on, windows will open a dialog box asking you what to do. from there you can choose the folder to view the data.

Viewing pictures on computer from memory card


When you put the card in the slot, you should see a window pop up. In that window click 'save as' and than name the pictures folder. Take nothe of where the computer says it is going to stor the pictures. Most likely under the 'My Pictures icon.' When you go to craigslist and come to the point when you are ready to upload pictures, click 'add picture' or 'upload picture' or somrhing of that nature. You well be than see a window pop up, navigate to the 'My Pictures' folder or whereever you stored the pictures and click the picture you want to upload.
Good luck, if you need further help, let me know. And please rate my answer.

While the system may be emitting a memory error beep code, that obviously is not the only issue here. If there is onboard video and it isn't working, try this:

1: Unplug system
2: Open case
3: Look for the CR2032 flat watch-style battery located on the motherboard, usually around where the front panel connections are
4: Remove this battery using a flathead screwdriver to push on the tiny 'hook' of metal holding it in. DO NOT PRY THE BATTERY OUT.
5: Let system sit for 10 seconds and put the battery back in.
6: Power the system back up

What this does is drain the system's memory completely. If it was perhaps set to use the AGP video card (which isn't installed, hence no video), this setting should be cleared and you should get onboard video.

Failing this, really, your only choice is a new motherboard, or to install an AGP card and see if it works. If you don't feel like hunting down a replacement board, I'd just order a cheap AGP card. If the AGP card works, use it. If not, then your motherboard is really pooched and you'll need a new one anyways.

About the memory beep issue:

You can google memtest86 and download that program. Burn it to a bootable CD and run the memory test; it should tell you if the memory is good or not.

hope that helps!

Mental problem/insufficiant tec knowledge


Video cards are definitely more for people who are into multimedia and video gaming.

The main reason to upgrade your video card is to take the graphical work that the computer does away from your main processor so it can do other things. Video cards are made up of two things, a processor and memory. So say you are watching a movie on your computer, and you dont have a seperate video card processor or video memory on your motherboard. When you play that movie, all the multimedia information must be processed through your processor and the data must be stored in your memory (RAM). This takes away from other things that your computer could be doing for you while you watch your movie. So by having this extra video card, you are able to run your multimedia information (such as games, pictures, or anything else that you see on the screen) much faster while the computer can focus on other things like running your word processor or your web browsing.

How many photos can be stored on a digital photo frame?


Hi,
I generally depends upon the size of the picture that you are storing and the memory card that in the digital frame.
eg 128 MB photo frame ,would store close to 10 pictures at 8 megapixel resolution

I cant get the pictures to show from the sd memory card to show in the camera


A bit more information might be helpful. Is your problem that you cannot view the pictures on your SD memory card while the card is installed in your camera? If this is the case you might make sure the card is properly installed. Sometimes if the card is not fully engaged in the memory slot the camera will not register it. Try removing the card and reinstalling it.
