    2. read how the player will sync your device, which is directly under where you type the name of the device. If storage of the device is more than 4 gigabytes, for example, and your library on Windows Media Player fits on this device, the player chooses automatic.
    3. selection of automatic synchronization means that your device will reflect all your Windows Media Player library and it will do so that whenever it is connected. Click on "Finish".
    4. to synchronize only some of your library when the player chose automatic, you can choose what will sync when you open Windows Media Player. Click on the portable device in the right pane and drag the items you want to synchronize with this device.
    5. selection of a manual synchronization indicates that the player has detected that the portable device has no place for your entire library. Click on "Finish". Open Windows Media Player, select the portable device in the right pane and drag the items you want to synchronize with this device.

  • MP4 does not work in Windows Media Player

    I'm working on a project that has videos on built-in slides.

    When I save the project as a swf or exe file, it works fine. I need as an mp4. When I try to record it in a mp4, it works on a mac computer, but not on a Windows computer. I tried on Windows 7 and Windows 8. On Windows 7, I get a message saying "Windows Media Player has stopped working". On Windows 8, the message says "element not found."

    Some Captivate mp4s works; others do not. I don't understand what the difference is. Videos seem to better operate the videos embedded in the slides.

    I use 6 Captivate. I create projects on Windows 7.

    Thank you

    I got it work. All I had to do was resize the project to a smaller size.

  • Webcam on Satellite A200 does not work with Windows Media Encoder

    Material: TOSHIBA Satellite A200 (1GH) with built-in Chicony webcam.

    When I use the software Chicony webcam - it works allright (video recorded normally).
    BUT: when I have Chicony software from Windows Media Encoder (preinstalled with Vista) - when I try to select the webcam as input device - and closing the error reported is "the device is not ready".

    This error also repeated if I select for driver webcam Microsoft instead of native driver Chicony webcam.


    Download the latest driver Chicony and the software for the Toshiba page and install it.
    Don t forget to remove the old version.

    In addition, if you get the error message like webcam is used by another application or "device is not ready you must start the msconfig and should turn off and turn on webcam chicony and process service.»

    Good bye

    Why CRYSTAL_REPORT program does not work with windows Vista?

    Windows Vista Compatibility Center

    First thing to do is to check its Vista compatibility at the link above, and if not to see what patches/solutions are available from its manufacturer...

    If this is not Vista compatible, read the info on the link above.
    It works for some programs, but not all.

    This applies to software programs, NOT hardware drivers.

    If it's Vista compatible > uninstall it > Re-download/save to your desktop > right click on the setup.exe > run as admin.

    See you soon.
