  • Camileo S10 - Arcsoft doesn't recognize not all files on SD card and internal memory

    I just bought a Camileo s10 camcoder.
    So far, I was pleased with the product until I connected it to my pc (vista compatible with recommendations).

    I installed the Arcsoft software, but I've never had any file import because * the program recognized the sd and internal memory as void * (I could read the files in the drive of the camera, as well as my pc card reader).

    I have used other similar suites with no luck. Then I tried to format sd hc 8 GB card and restore my files but unfortunately I noticed * video/foto files not recognized at the time, even from the camera *.

    Another concern is that I had a trailer (720 p) hd .mov file in my memory card and the camera could not see (+ I wanted to use the camcorder as a player HD plugged into my sony full hd tv +).

    I looked for answers almost anywhere, but so far I have had no response

    Hello nikfam,

    I also have a S10 Camielo, installed the software Arcsoft on Windows Vista and I am able to see images and mov files if I connect the cam via usb cable or if I insert the sd card into the card reader.
    He shows me the internal memory and the data stored on the card (Class6) 8 GB SDHC.

    Maybe you need a card with a higher class. Where did you try to format the sd card? On the inside of the camera or on your pc?
    Please take a look at the right format.

    Have you tried another usb port? If you use a hub, check that there is enough power.
    I downloaded both trailers 720 p and saved on my sd card but my S10 couldn t see too.

  • My Windows 7 computer will not find the networks wireless after a system restore.

    My Windows 7 computer is not find wireless networks after I did a system restore. It was perfectly good wifi before the system restore and other members of my family have a great connection except me is not a problem with my router. I think I know what the problem is, but I just don't know how to fix it. So there you go. I did my restore system about 2 days after that we moved on the provider of internet/tv "Comcast" to the tv/internet provider "Verizon". what I think has happened, is that I restored my computer to the point when we had no Verizon so that he could not find the network. Now, since we have Comcast it won't identify this network either, so maybe some of you out there could help me. : D

  • Had a project done with first elements 11.  All media files and PRE files were in the same folder on an external hard drive.  Received a new computer, loaded first items 11 (which of course doesn't recognize not all previous projects as it is)

    Had a project done using first items 11 (the file exported and posted on youtube).  All the media files and PRE files associated with this project were located in the same folder on an external hard drive.  Got a new computer, responsible for first 11 elements (which of course doesn't recognize not all previous projects because it is a new installation) and now cannot open the original project to make some adjustments (connected to the external hard drive of course)...  Even tried to open the last saved auto program as well, no luck.  Just get a shell of the original project, but no real media file is passed in. Then get a prompt asking you where the file "rendering-3090026..." (20 More digits) is located.  Looking for C drive and external hard drive without success. Help!


    Which operating systems are involved - old and new?

    The external drive has the same drive letter on the new computer as it did when it was used on the other computer?

    Where are the video preview and the old led, Audio preview files compared to new? See Edit Menu/preferences/Scratch discs?

    Are all the place where is the file... messages just to render files? If all are for rendering files, what happens if you click ignore for their

    messages? Can you enter into the project and render it again if necessary and proceed with the project?

    Please see the bulletin. With the above information, we will decide which way to go? It seems that a media disconnect situation has developed in

  • I am owner of Dreamweaver 8 comes with Macromedia Studio 8. I'm getting worried about the age of the machine which is on. Is there a way to upgrade a laptop Windows 7 which does not involve a monthly rent and allows to work on my website source

    I am owner of Dreamweaver 8 comes with Macromedia Studio 8. I'm getting worried about the age of the machine which is on. Is there a way to upgrade a laptop Windows 7 which does not involve a monthly rent and allows to work on the source code of my Web site completely offline?

    Thank you. Last time I looked into things with the description "Cloud", it seemed to me that you either need to be logged to the software work (possibly validate the rental date?) and/or your content of current things was 'in the cloud '.

    While I don't like the rental model, if I can make it work offline that may be an option.

    Fortunately, the machine still works, so I have little time to decide. It is likely that my existing sites in Dreamweaver 8 will be compatible up with current versions?

  • Belkins wireless adapter recognizes not all wifi networks

    Laptop?  If you know that there is a wireless network in your home because the other computers are connected to him, the most likely cause is that the wireless adapter is disabled (a physical switch or a combination of keys Fn + Fkey).

  • Windows XP, you see only not all files in Windows 7 shares

    I see an embarrassing problem that occur on two different sets of machines on different networks.  The initial symptom that led me to study was that software synchronization third laptop XP Pro SP3 computer a user has acted improperly, saying that some files in directories on a Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit computer were gone, but they really were.

    I traced the problem in several directories on the Windows 7 machine display incomplete content seen on the XP machine network.

    For purposes of explanation, //Desktop/Folder is a share on the Windows 7 computer, which has 167 files it contains.  If you open this share on a networked XP Pro computer, it shows only 140 files.

    For example, File1.doc and File2.doc are both in this shared directory on the Windows 7 computer.  However, on the XP machine, File1 does not appear in the directory.

    On the Windows 7 machine, File1.doc and File2.doc are identical regarding permissions and attributes.  The only differences are the size and creation date.  Look at the rest of the 27 "missing" files in this folder, the results are the same - I see no difference.  The files are not password-protected.

    I have reproduced this exact behavior with the same data on different machines with the same operating systems.  All machines are completely up to date with respect to updates.  There is no detected malware on any of them.  They are on the same workgroup.

    This change in behavior has happened apparently quite recently that the user had no problem with the synchronization software for laptop until last week.

    Can anyone suggest what could happen here?

    Thanks for your reply, Jonathan.

    I traced the problem to Avast (any flavor).  It turns out that it's a known problem, but not a single notice of too many people.  It is really so when you try to run the software of synchronization between two networked computers and directories that you synchronize are affected by the bug of Avast as the synchronization software performs a very detailed comparison.

    When I uninstalled Avast on the source (Windows 7) XP machine could see all the files in all the network shares.  When I reinstalled Avast, the problem returns.

    I have a ticket in Avast on this problem.

  • Windows Media Player will not play files .avi or .mpg - Error Message: C00D1199

    Windows Media Player won't play .avi or .mpg files; files which I know to be readable by Windows Media Player. In addition, this program has played these accurate files in the month of August. The files are readable on other programs. I searched other forums, but it is impossible to find an answer to this problem, except the recommendation of a codec - although I don't know how I have "lost" the codec in the past two months. Today, spontaneously and erratically, Windows Media Player recognizes the .mpg files, but not the .avi. Microsoft Security Essentials have installed and up to date, if it is not a virus. Have problems in other programs with the recognition of previously readable files. Not sure if it's related, so I'll post in separate... forums but I'll give you a link if you want to. Your help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.


    Other players, such as iTunes and QuickTime, have been known to corrupt some files that
    then will cause this error.

    You received the C00D1199 error message using Windows Media Player. What follows
    information to help you solve the problem.

    For 32-bit use these - OR the 32 bit ones listed above which I prefer.

    K - Lite Codec Pack 8.1.7 (or newer)

    Use them for 64-bit:

    K - Lite Codec Pack 5.6.0 (64-bit) (or newer)


    You know that you use WMP 32 or 64

    Change, change or set 64 - Bit Windows Media Player 11 (WMP11) in Windows Vista x 64 as default


    VLC needs, of no use so usually Codec as a backup when asked to support associations of files just say no.
