My sylvania 7 inch netbook youtbe videos will not play

You have to use thw application that came with the netbook for "YouTube" If you try to hook directly to youtube by ask for url, it will throw you into the large page that has so much data to render that your netbook cannot handle. CE operating makes it into a smart phone and you have to access the abbreviated smart phone site which the included application will go to. You will not be able to access many sites that do not recognze the Win CEsystem as a smart phone and automatically send you to that network.

When i use youtube on my Sylvania Netbook, it keeps popping up with a tiny box saying error code when i try to click on a video. Help me out please?

You are restricted to using the "YOU TUBE" icon on the desk top as that will connect to a server that can handle the restricted CE displays. If you try and go around that and ask for it will give you an error code. Many sites cannot recognize the CE format as that is somewhat restricted to "Smart Phone Usage" in the past.

I cant download adobe flash player onto the netbook

Hello, there's loads of help, info, and advice of the type you need, on Just do a search for your Sylvania G-Netbook on here and be prepared to read loads as it appears you're not alone out there with Netbook issues.
p.s. the bottom line is that you can't install flash as the Netbook isn't Intel-based. You have to run the mobile version of youtube, which I understand is available as an icon on your desktop. Windows CE itself is a version of Windows 98 specially ported to run on the processor used in your Netbook.
Also check out this link to some video reviews of the product which explain things really well.
