Xcross Media Bar will not show up

For some reason when i power on my PS3 the Xcross Media Bar will not show up. I have a 60GB version with all the latest updates. I can still play games, but the Xcross Bar will not show up when the PS3 boots up. I have no clue as to why this is happening? Any ideas will be appreciated.

Do you have it set to load the game on start? That's what it sounds like. Next time, hit the PS3 button to get to the xcross menu and change this option.

My windows media player xp don`t play


You can update Windows Media Player to its latest version from Microsoft website. Windows Media Player comes in-built in all versions of Windows. However, if your Windows Media Player is not updated you can download and install the latest version of media player from Microsoft website. Before downloading, you should check whether your computer satisfies the basic requirements of the new version or not. After updating the older version perform a restart for the changes to take effect.

My side buttons on my ipod wnt work neither will any of the other buttons you can see the screen only when it one the computer charging


  1. Connect your iPod to your computer and attempt to synch your ipod.
  2. Backup all the files on your iPod onto your hard drive. Restoring your iPod will wipe out all your music.
  3. Download the latest version of iTunes from Apple.com. Since iTunes is set to update itself periodically, you probably already have the latest version already.
  4. From iTunes, click on your iPod name in the left navigation bar. It will bring you to the summary page.
  5. Click "Restore" on the updater and your iPod will restore itself to factory settings (also resulting in losing all of its music).

    1. Click the prompts to indicate that you really want to go through with this. If using Windows, you will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt iTunes to automatically download the latest iPod Software. Holding down the SHIFT key before clicking the Restore button will allow you to browse your computer for version of firmware you wish to use. The 4 possible restore options are:

    2. Restore Option 1: Restore - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod.
    • Restore Option 2: Use Same Version - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod even though a newer version is available.
    • Restore Option 3: Use Newest Version - Restores with the latest iPod Software available.
    • Restore Option 4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest iPod Software available.
    1. If using a Mac, a progress bar will appear on the computer screen indicating that the first stage of the restore process has started. When this stage is completed, iTunes will present one of two messages on screen with instructions specific to the iPod model you are restoring.

    2. Restore Instruction 1: Disconnect iPod and connect it to iPod Power Adapter (typically applies to older iPod models).
    • Restore Instruction 2: Leave iPod connected to computer to complete restore (typically applies newer iPod models).
    1. During the stage 2 of the restore process, the iPod will show an Apple logo as well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display. It is critical that the iPod remains connected to the computer or iPod Power adapter during this stage. Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see since the backlight on the iPod display may be off.
    2. Follow the instructions of the iTunes setup assistant. Let iTunes autofill it with music again and you will be set to go!

    Cannot play 2 song on my ipod


    If you're having trouble with your iPod, try these steps (known around here as the five Rs) one at a time until the issue is resolved. These steps will often whip your iPod back into shape.
    1. Retry your iPod with a different USB or FireWire port on your computer (please note that the latest iPods can only be synced through USB).
    2. Reset your iPod. To reset an iPod, iPod nano, or iPod mini, press and hold the Menu and Select buttons until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 10 seconds. You may need to repeat this step. To reset an iPod shuffle, disconnect iPod shuffle from the computer (if connected), and then move the switch on the back of iPod shuffle to the off position. Wait 5 seconds, and then move the switch on the back to the play in order or the shuffle position.
    3. Restart your computer, and make sure that you have the latest software updates installed.
    4. Reinstall your iTunes software and make sure you have downloaded the latest version. Check your iPod software by connecting your iPod to your computer, and then in iTunes, select your iPod in the Source pane. Click the Summary tab, and the Version section tells you whether iPod is up to date or needs a newer version of the software. Click Update to install the latest version of the software.
    5. Restore your iPod by connecting your iPod to your computer, and then in iTunes, select your iPod in the Source pane. Click the Summary tab, and click Restore to restore iPod to its original settings. Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the restore process. (Important: Please note that restoring an iPod will erase all songs and files on your iPod and restore it back to its original settings. Make a backup of any files on your iPod before restoring it. After restoring, you can transfer your music and files from your computer back to your iPod again.)
    Note: Because Restore erases all of the songs and files on iPod, make sure to back up any files you've saved on the iPod disk. All of your songs, videos, podcasts, audiobooks, and games can be loaded back to your iPod provided that you have them stored in your iTunes Library.

    How to restore your iPod:
    For Windows:

    1. Make sure you've reinstalled the latest version of iTunes.

    2. Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer.

    4. Select your iPod in the source list and you will see information about it appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes windows.
    5. Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt iTunes to automatically download of the latest iPod Software.

    Windows media player can't play .wmv files


    • Firstly a UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterrupted Power Supply - meaning emergency backup power in the event of a mains power failure. This is not a type of PC.
    • Secondly - Windows media player does not support every type of movie format, as Microsoft Update it from time to time, some formats will still not be supported, these are known as codecs.
    • Thirdly, codecs to support your particular format can usually be downloaded and added to Windows Media Player, however i can not think of any reason .wmv files are not supported by Windows Media Player.

    You could try re-downloading the latest version of Windows Media Player from one of the links provided below.
    WMP 11 will support the latest codecs, but if for some reason you find yourself needing the older version, use WMP 10.

    You will most likely have to remove your current version of WMP, and you can do this by using Windows Add/Remove programs.
    1. Click on the Start menu button ( bottom left corner of your screen. )
    2. Click on Control Panel.
    3. Click on Add or Remove Programs.
    4. Click on Windows Media Player in the list.
    5. Click Remove ( right hand side of the listing )

    Microsoft WMP 11 is available by clicking on this link:

    Microsoft WMP 10 is available by clicking on this link:
    http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/10/default.aspx

    WMV 11 is available by clicking on this link:
