  1. I don't know what the problem is.

    I restored the computer back to an earlier point and this allowed me to reinstall the firmware onto the mp3 player. I removed the player as one of the devices associated with the computer and then I plugged the player back into the computer and I was notified that all the necessary files needed to run the device would be installed.

    But, the device is still not recognised by the computer. I am not sure what else I can do with this player.

  2. Sorted it!!

    I needed to go into the device manager and select the problematic entry in the manager for the portable device. I selected to update the driver but, rather than me letting the PC sort it out itself (this failed several times before), I selected "let me pick from a list of device drivers an my computer".

    I found the option for a 'mtp USB device', selected that and - lo and behold - things seemed to sort itself out.

    Just a shame that I now have to re-add my 1600+ songs back onto the player!

  3. Use your daughter's PC to update the firmware?

  4. My son's complaining that Windows Explorer is no longer showing any of his music, document or video files. In fact, when I click on the specific folder I see in Windows Explorer, the program tells me that it cannot find the folder (even though I can see it in the folder tree.

    Anyone any advice on how to link everything together again?

    David says that the remaining space left on his hard drive suggests that the files are there but cannot be seen nor accessed.

    At the moment I am doing a system restore back to a point before a Windows Update, and after which the problems seemed to start (he said that a similar thing happened a week or so ago but he found the files in another part of the hard disk, then he moved them back.)

    Thanks.

  5. Well, CMD won't work on its own device but what about doing a Scandisk run?

    Perhaps too much files in one folder? It could be useful to check in a command console.

  6. Thanks everyone. I think that what happened was some sort of a touchpad mishap.

    The folders were in a weird desktop folder and it wasn't an obvious place to look.

    crazy How in blazes do I turn the spell check back on. Apparently one of the updates from Microsoft turned it off. Plus I'm having issues with Wordpress. Anyone else?

    does spellcheck have anything to do with word?

  7. If you are using Word at the time then yes. What version of Word are you using?

    There must be something to turn on and off.

    Tom, try the following:

    1. Click the File tab when you have a document open and then click Options
    2. In the left-hand column click Proofing
    3. In the right-hand section there should be a section entitled When correcting spelling and grammar in Word
    4. Make sure that the Check spelling as you type check box is ticked

    I have the default setting of all the check boxes ticked for the following options in this section:

    - Check spelling as you type
    - Mark grammar errors as you type
    - Frequently confused words
    - Check grammar with spelling

    The Show readability statistics check box is not ticked.

    Hope this helps.

    (BTW, when I put the following into Google - spell checker in word enable - the above help was top of the search results.)

    You couldn't find the file tab? Then how do you open a Word document whilst using Word if you don't use the File tab?

    And when was there a spell checker for this site?

  10. There is a spell checker for FireFox and possibly for other browsers.

    I open using the program window which lists all of my programs. As far as I know I had spellcheck on many websites as well as outlook, my email program

  11. What browser do you use? Perhaps a recent update to the browser has messed up the browser's spell checking function.

    If you use Chrome as your browser try checking here:

    Searching for other browsers and spell check should help you check if the native spell checker is enabled?

  13. More related to online shopping.

    Has anyone had the experience where they have found a digital album on somewhere like Amazon only to find that, when you go back later in the day, it's gone?

    I am wondering whether I am just unlucky and it was pulled from the store between my visits or whether the title is somehow being masked by my browser or some other weird thing. (I don't suspect the latter much.)

  14. Does anyone know of the best way to edit a video for free?

    I used VLC to capture a 4-minute video but I need to edit 30 seconds from the start because the program had audio and visual issues that meant that there's a sequence that's useless before I get to the part I want.

    I uploaded it to YouTube and tried to edit in the Creator Studio(?) aid but that seemed to squash the aspect ratio so everything turned d tall and thin. I can't think of any other route I have to hand except for Microsoft's Movie Maker - that I have yet to try.

    Thanks for any help.

    Microsoft's Movie Maker is the way the go for quick (but quite good looking) edits. It's very basic, but has everything 99% of casual editors would ever need.
    If I need to do some very tricky, complicated eding I'll turn to (very much NOT free) Adobe Premiere, but in most cases I'll just use Movie Maker.

    Yes, happens a lot: Amazon gets these things well upfront of the actual launch date, and quite often publishes them before they're due. So then they retract them again.

  16. Hitfilm Express 4 is a nice (free) video editing program that's a bit more powerful than Movie Maker, but for what you're trying to do the latter should be quite sufficient.
  17. Movie Maker worked a treat. Thanks again.
