I don't have a 93 years old goat needs to answer. I want to buy an external dvd drive, but don't know which is compatible with Windows XP, any help would be appreciated

I don't have a DVD player on my computer, check the Net tells me tht I would need an external DVD drive that must be compatible with my computer which is Windows XP. I'm pretty stupid on computers and since I'm home linked to diabetic neuropathy, a broken femur that stands with 4 screws a nd a replacement hip and you tell the truth, I don't know what allI must tell you as I said I'm stupid on computers. Please let me know what else, or how I can find something else that you need. Thank you for your help.

Hello

Most of the USB 2.0 DVD burners will be compatible XP (be sure to get a burner so you can make CD
and DVDs and not just play).

A very good source of information would be supported by the manufacturer of your system and their forums (if any).

Another good source would be your local computer store or even a major retailer like Best Buy
or the FRY.

This is good, but there are many good brands.

  • Muse and Business Catalyst not synchronize and I don't know how to solve this problem. Any help would be appreciated.

    I have a site that is hosted by BC and built in Muse. I invested a little time he gets the State that it's but for some reason any, when a change is made in British Colombia, it will not be synchronized back to muse and I get these errors.

    "A framework of Muse matching text not found for text '{module_contentholder, name is '_U999'}' on this web page."

    Is there a formatting issue that I don't see? It seems to me that once it downloads on BC, things are converted and will not be converted. It is vital that I can make changes to both the browser and the master file without interruption of the site as a whole and without having to redo work hours which is done via the browser in the editor.

    Thanks in advance for any help that can be provided.

    I spoke with business catalyst support and we have determined that the problem was not with the software but with the process. I just change each page through the site manager and not through the edit tab that was causing my whole question. I appreciate all your help!

    Open Adobe Reader application

    Go in Edition > Preferences > accessibility

    Uncheck the option "Always use the Zoom setting" under the component "substitute the Page Display.

    Then go to the Page display

    Select 100% for the Zoom drop-down list in option at the top

    then click OK

    Check if the PDF files open to 100%. If this isn't the case, then please share a PDF file.

    How to choose a program to open my photos when inserting my SD card because it does not give me options of this program to use differently than before, why, I don't know, so any help would be appreciated.

    I know what it is, and I'm trying to answer it... will keep you posted
    your original question in a forum of Vista.

    OK... you are running XP and your computer has a media player you
    Insert the card in?

    If you go to... Start / my computer... There should be one or more readers
    listed as... Removable Disk... These are the slots of the media player.

    If you right click on the removable disk representative the memory card
    and in the menu... Choose... Properties / Autoplay tab and open the fall
    window and select pictures. And... ICT... "ask me each time to choose
    an action "." Maybe this will restore the AutoPlay window when you insert
    the map.

    You could also try... on the left by clicking on the button "Restore default settings" / apply / OK.

    And it may be worth trying to run the AutoPlay Repair Wizard.

  • My up asking me if I want to restore my Active Desktop and when I press Yes thinking it press I Yes. Any help will be appreciated and thank you

    Hello, I have Windows XP Professional on my computer at home and a week ago I noticed a new icon on the screen that says 'New Briefcase (2)' start. I'm not this letter from the computer where I can go and start trying to remove this or that and I would like to know what would happen if I chose to delete it? The other thing that has changed is the color of the background, it used to be the old blue startup screen and now it is white and a box asking if I want to restore my Active desktop. When I pressed yes thinking it would take me back to the old blue screen that nothing happens, so I end up going to the Panel and the opening of the office and when my old screen appears, I grow well and he is back to normal, until the next time that I start. What would cause that new icon to just pop as he did and why the white of the screen with this question? I did something that would cause these changes. Any help would be appreciated and I thank you for your time and your help.

    [Moved from comments]

    Hello

    The new Briefcase (2) is probably empty and may have accidentally created by a right-click on the desktop > New > Briefcase. You can safely remove. It is not necessary.

    For the question of Active Desktop, try this...

    Right-click on the desktop > properties > Display Properties > Desktop > customize > Web, uncheck whatever the page is listed or add a new Web page and uncheck the box, then OK your way out. That should disable Active Desktop.

    Then... Right-click on the desktop > properties > Display Properties > Desktop > select a color.

  • Hi, I use Lightroom4 and I can't seem to make one of the photos in the book that I am trying to download on Blurb.  I used the same photo before in other books.  Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi, I am trying to download my Blurb photo book and it does not work.   I use Lightroom4 and recently (and successfully) use the same picture in several other books.  I get an error message that says that the photo cannot be returned.  I don't know if it would work with the rest of the photos, because the one who gets the error message is only the third of about 40 images.  I would appreciate all the advice really.

    Thank you

    As I said, I'm never comfortable with special characters like slash, and colon (exception is the underscore), although I have no direct evidence that there is a problem.

    What happens if you rename the photo (using your operating system) to be lake_clouds2.jpg, and then she would have the question mark in LR 4 and you reconnect to the it in LR 4? Renders the picture then?

  • I need help showing an email to users when they connect. Any help would be appreciated!

    Hello

    Now that I'm able to view username someones after they connect by using the code below, how in the world do a page to show their email. For example, when they change their e-mail addresses in the settings said beside the form "your current e-mail address is defined as...". "How do I show?

    Code user name:

    <? PHP echo $_SESSION ['MM_Username'];? >

    It's like in all this?

    Thanks for any help.

    Well, if yes then u just pull the email from the recordset variable. To make the Recordset, go to server behaviors > recordset. The field filter, choose the user name > session variable > MM_Username. Then, towards the face u can see "Bindings", click it and click on the recordset that you did before you see all the variables in this Recordset (click more +). Then you just have to drag this e-mail on your page variable. It's done!
