Re: 98fe pc problems
Connecting your old computer to your laptop is actually very easy.
You will need to go and buy an ethernet cable But. you must buy what is known as a "crossover" cable and NOT a normal straight cable. This cable will simply plug into the ethernet port on each machine allowing them to create a small simple network. You can use the "Create a small office or home network" wizard to do this or better still if you have an actual XP installation disk you can create the network using it.
This is an example of a crossover cable: http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=3756907

Similar problem except worse. Can't even burn anything. Furthermore, disks inserted in the drive are not appearing on the desktop or anywhere. The drive appears in disk utility. It also seems to cause a host of other problems, various burning applications are CRASHING and not even responding to force quit (haven't tried to kill from terminal yet). We've had to reboot several times.
So far experience is awful. Going to return this if it computer keeps crashing everytime the drive is plugged in.
hi..the solution is u need to re-format your system and Hard Drive and re-install a new OS..i think your system is a lot of Bugs/error came from virus or worms...but b4 format back-up your files using like,USB flash drive or external Hard Disk/Drive..Good Luck mam/sir...God Day and God Bless..^_^
Try using device manager and deleting the CD from it, then reboot and let windows do its thing with intalling it again. Let me know if windows does NOT try to reinstall the CD drive or you get any error messages
You can download the autoplay repair wizard from Microsoft if thats the main problem, but it may be on its way out, you can also try a lens cleaner cd, but i dont think it will make a difference.
The life span of recorders is getting less and less, perhaps because of inferior parts being fitted to keep the prices down.
Go to my computer on your desktop, then right click and down to properties,then hardware tab, then device manager.
Click on the '+' sign on the DVD/CDROM line, right click on your DVD Rom and click uninstal.
Restart your pc and let Windows find your DVDROM again.
Just double check that autoplay is set on the drive by right click on my computer, down to explore, right click on your 'D' drive (if this is your DVDROM) down to properties, then click on autoplay tab, and on the drop down box, highlight what files you want to autoplay.
If no joy there is an autorun fix programme on the Microsoft site here.
