Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

The Memorex 16x-DD6-IN 1A that came with the Dell XPS I bought 3 years ago, has never worked. Dell tried to fix it through telephone call ins, but never got the thing to work. The three year warrenty ran out last May. I tried to get them to send me a new one, but got the runaround till thay no longer had to. Now I have a new Canon digital movie camera, the S100, and it shoots in a format which I still have not found out what it is, and going to the Canon web site was no help and I need to burn a DVD-RW and I need the Memorex to burn it on. Have tried many free software downloads from the internet that change the format of CD's and DVD's, to some other format. None of then worked and most have a banner in the middle of the picture, that rinders the change useless. Sent Canon an email, to find out what the foremat is that the camera shoots in. Right now, I would spend up to $50 on a software program that would do what I want it to do and I still need to get my DVD burner fixed. The programs I have used would find the Memorex, but the burner will not except the change from one format to another. Would it be cheaper to buy a new burner than try to fix the one I have?

Doing a quick search on the camera you mention, the results show that this camera has been discontinued a few years ago, it does not shot movies, the pictures are in JPEG format which can be read and veiwed by any computer.

Are you sure you got the right camera model - is this it?

The Memorex 16x-DD6-IN 1A that - 6931ac9.jpg


As for your drive, are you able to insert an audio disc and listen to music, or insert a software disc and install software?

If you can then you probably just need the correct software to burn a cd or dvd.

Software worth trying is - Nero Suite or Ashampoo burning Suite, which can be bought from any good PC retailer.

Both suites will enable you to create a dvd or cd with video and or pictures for viewing on a consumer dvd player.

Hope this helps.

Given the fact that you have dealt with this issue for three years and spent probably countless hours trying to resolve it - YES. Buy another drive, which will come with software that will operate the drive properly. Just make sure to check for compatibility with your camera. In the long run you will save a fair amount of money, a lot of time, and incalculable headaches!

I bought an xps 210 2 years ago. The power supply is dead


It is possible that you picked up a faulty power supply, slim, but possible. Chances are pretty good that you have one of your components drawing too much current on your power supply. The largest power drain comes from your processor and the graphics accelerator cards, however it could be a faulted motherboard or hard drive. You can replace your power supply with a larger capacity unit from a known good manufacturer. If you increase the wattage capability and look with the side off to see if any component is generating a lot more heat than usual. A larger capacity power supply should be able to handle the unusual current draw.

Need drivers to run windows 98se on dell xps m140


Microsoft (and Dell) stopped supporting Windows 98 a few years ago -- it lasted for over TEN years! So, it is *NOT* likely that you will find drivers for any computer that was "designed for Windows 2000" or "designed for Windows XP" or "designed for Vista".

So, in general, it is a _bad_ idea to connect any computer running Windows 98 to the Internet -- Microsoft has issued many "security-fixes" in the 4 years after they stopped supporting Windows 98 and Windows ME.

As from your question I can say that you are only using windows default copying service. First of all you must try copying the data using some third party softwares such as Ashampoo or Nero. You can try to burn a CD/DVD image with it or simply try to write data using these softwares. Dell has been suspected of having this problem in few cases, so DVD RW drive might also be faulty. Also, there is this microsoft page which can be useful: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=316529

Dell XPS M1330 - Backlight not working


If you are having issues with a backlight I would check the lcd inverter first. It is usually 20 dollars on ebay. I would avoid contacting dell as they are no help to people that are out of warranty.

I have a Memorex U48 Flat Bed Scanner and have bought a new compouter with Vista. I need a driver download to work with Windows Vista. Thanks jreowens@aol.com


get the winXP driver MEMu1.50 (still available), there are no Vista drivers. Run the installation using WinXP emulation in Vista. You must run the installation as if you are in XP, not necessary when using the scanner subsequently. Now the Memorex 48u works on a Dell Dimension, running Windows Vista Home Premium. Hope this helps. I got the scannner for $14 after rebates at Staples years ago, it won't die.
