    what is it, this XL-550
    google shows vast things made with the model, I can not see it nor guess what it is or what it does or makers name;.
    scale, or sewing machine or welder.

    It must be a toy that is USB connected or something that has CD
    a talking digital bathroom scale?

    if yes have friend with real PC and read the CD and copy it to uSB thumbdrive.
    then using that load the software.

    or is a Singer sewing machine
    ok I give up , and is not failing PC
    and no PC told at all nor OS you run
    so I do give up.
    learn to google
    learn to google makers name + model + support.
    and find your own software from the maker.


    SInger (wild guess this) is it?
    SEWING?

    buy $15 cd/dvd external USB drive cheap
    ebay.com or amazon.com. or any where that sells them.
    not be helpless?
    some things like this have COA license keys to run the software, so the CD may be super important if true.

I can't believe that a Windows PC does not have an optical drive! You can download the software.

    VAST Loptops had no CD/DVD drive.
    it was an option on all old laptops.
    just like wifi was, an option. too. then.
    and now GONE.
    on all.
    w10 will run on a 2008 PC with no DVD.
    no PC told by OP so no savvy answers
    the full model number of the PC will contain, the code for DVD (ODD)
    or if dell PC, the service tag tells you all things opted in or out of the PC day one new.
    or has brand new Laptop and thin laptops
    are too thin to have any CD drive.
    cracker thin I call them. HP X360

    there are 3 cures
    get the software from the maker online
    or copy the CD to USB thumb drive
    using a real PC. with CD drive.
    or buy the $15 USB ODD drive. best IMO.
    always have one for days like this. $15 bucks.

SOURCE: I haven't cd with software

You can download the current versions of all (free) Nikon software from
http://support.nikontech.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/61

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use Nikon Transfer or any other photo cataloging program.

SOURCE: hi i have a western digital wd1600 160gb hard

Have you tried setting the jumpers on the new drive to CS (cable select) If you use that setting, the position of the drive on the cable determines whether it is master or slave. For example, the plug at theend of the IDE cable is the master and the plug in the middle of the cable would be slave. Just a suggestion. If you are using SATA, this does not apply.

SOURCE: I have lost my cd to download to another computer

The easy solution is to buy a small "card reader" that you stick your card in and then insert in a USB port to read it. You can check the site for drivers in their support section if you still want to use a cable.

Not download xp


Step 1:
SP3 is the third and final service pack released for Microsoft Windows XP, and it eliminates many of the security holes that previously affected XP. While Microsoft recommends that users download SP3 using Windows Update, some users are unable to do so. However, it's easy to create a Windows XP SP3 installation CD; it requires only that you download the pack from the website and burn it to a CD-R/DVD-R using an ISO burner program.
Download the SP3 installation ISO by visiting the first link listed in the "Resources" section of this article. Save it to your Desktop. Download ImgBurn and save it to your Desktop. Double-click the installation executable for ImgBurn and click "Next." Follow the remaining onscreen prompts and click "Finish" to complete installation of ImgBurn. Insert a blank CD-R/DVD-R into your DVD drive. Open ImgBurn by going to "Start," "Programs" and "ImgBurn." Click "File," then "Browse for a source file." Navigate to your Desktop and select the SP3 ISO file. Click "Open." Click the blue "ISO to CD" button located on the bottom left of ImgBurn. The program will begin creating the Windows XP SP3 installation CD. This process may take anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes to complete depending on the speed at which the CD-R/DVD-R is being burned. Click "OK" once the CD-R/DVD-R has finished burning. You've successfully created a Windows XP SP3 installation CD.

My laptop does not have a cd/dvd drive, how do set up my laptop to download pics from my panasonic dmc-fz45 to my laptop via the cable?


You haven't to configure the your pc to download the photos, you need only the usb cable, usually provided with the camera; the cd is for the software of the Lumix to view and edit videos or photos, but you can use any other software you want.

Disney mix max problem


Connect your player to the USB port on your computer using the USB connector on the Mix Max. A 'MIX-MAX' window will appear in your My Computer folder which is the player's internal memory. To add more files and songs to your player simply drag and drop MP3 or WMA files from anywhere on your computer into the 'MIX-MAX' window.

For Windows XP, you can utilize Windows Media Player 10 software to convert music on an audio CD into MP3 or WMA format as follows:

Open the Windows Media Player 10 Browser, then click on the 'Rip' icon on the top tool bar. Insert a Music CD into the CD-ROM drive of your computer.
Click on the 'Tools' menu option at the top menu bar, then click on 'Options'; the Option setting menu will appear. Click on Rip Music and set the Rip music to the desired location on the newly ripped music (MP3 format or Windows Media Audio format). Adjust the audio quality as desired. When finished, click 'OK' to confirm the settings.
Click on the 'Rip Music' icon to start ripping the music to your computer.
When the music tracks are ripped; connect the player to your computer. Open the 'MIX-MAX' window and open the ripped music location window.
To add the transferred/ripped music file/songs to your player simply drag and drop the MP3 and/or WMA files into the 'MIX-MAX' window.
When the files are finished loading into the player, follow the 'Safely Remove Hardware' procedure as shown below.
Note: For Windows 98SE, Windows ME, and Windows 2000, please use the Windows Media Player 9 to convert music on an audio CD into MP3 or WMA format.

Downloading WMA files with DRM using Windows Media Player 10 (for Windows XP)

Denpa drivers required for online download


Depends what OS you are using. If you are using Windows ME/2000/XP/Vista then you do not need drivers for device to be recognized by PC when it is connected via USB cable (operating system will automatically work out what drivers are needed and configure so that the PC 'sees' the device - once seen it will show up in my computer as 'removable disk' icon).
If you are using Win98 then you need to install the driver. I haven't found anywhere on the Web where the files are located but they may be on the Windows 98 CD itself (they are identified as HB_UDISK_DRIVERS).
For example, from the installation CD the full path would be:
D:\HB_UDI~1\WIN98\HB__UDISC.INF where the CD-ROM drive is called the D drive (depends on hard disk configuration).
There is another question on here where someone has posted a link to a site to download software...not sure if the device driver files are available there. Note that the drivers merely enable your PC to recognize the device - the won't be any use in encoding/decoding/editing the files; that's done by separate software programs.
Good luck. Repost if you're having no joy...I may be able to dig out my installation CD and burn/mail you a copy. I'll check back in a week or so.
