Connect Camera As Mass Storage Class - Cannot Download File

I have a problem described in microsoft article id: 814390 whereas i cannot download an . Avi file since it is 1. 7gb. The recommended solution is: "you can connect the camera by using usb mass storage class (msc) instead of ptp. Then, transfer large files by using windows explorer. ""Well, that sounds simple enough, " i thought. I've been all around the computer trying to find some way to convince the computer that the camera is a mass storage class. I can't find ptp or msc in the computer anywhere. Even the help and support center (f1) has no record of these terms. I'm stumped. Any help on how to achieve this?

Website Restore Error

So today when i tried to play a game witch i have been for several years on the same computer, it redirects me when i click play now. This redirection says internet explorer has stopped trying to restore this website. It appears the website continues to have a problem.

The thing is its only my computer that this site does not work with, i have tried my brother's computer witch is directly in the other room and it worked fine so therefor it is not the websites problem.

I have tried rebooting my computer using internet explorer fix it and trying another internet source but still no luck, it seems as if something is blocking me from entering the site but i have been on it that afternoon.

I recently posted this on the games forums and it seems it has only been me with the problem people suggested to use command prompt to ip flush and clearing my cache but again no luck. Please help me out here is this a internet problem or is it something to do with my computer.

Unable To Sign In To A Website

A problem has just started in the last few days where i can't sign in to a website i have done so before many times. It's www.Findmypast.co.uk .

I can load the home page but when i click to sign in it simply comes back to the home page and i can't get any further.

I have cleared the cache including cookies but still no luck.
I have the site listed in the trusted zone.
I have contacted the site and they say it is to do with ie8 so can't help.
I can get through on mozilla but don't want to keep swapping browsers and would like to stay with ie8.

Cannot Access Bank Website

Customer having trouble with our web site after getting new computer. I have a customer that has a new computer and tries to log in with his id and password onto our bank site and an error about his browser keeps popping up and not allowing him to access his account information. He has a dial up connection with netzero. I am at a loss with this and he is able to access his account on his work computer just fine. We have been trying to solve this issue for 2 weeks now. I (he) really needs some help with this before he goes to another bank and experiences the same problem.

Cannot Stay Signed In To A Website

First, my apologies if this takes a while to explain. We have 2 laptops. Mine runs vista and ie8. My partner's was originally running vista when he bought it last spring. He recently had it upgraded to windows 7 (64-bit version) and ie8. There is a website that we both sign on to with the same user id/password. I have no problems. He continually gets bounced out and it acts like he never signed in. He tries to look at something and it says he is not a member and to please sign in. Or it says he has been idle too long and to please sign in again (when he's been right there trying to click on something).

Every time he tries to click on something, it bounces him out. You can imagine the frustration this is causing. He did not have this problem until his pc was upgraded to windows 7 and ie8. Has anyone else experienced this? Just for full disclosure this is an adult website and he doesn't have problems with any other website.

Website Screen Is Filling Monitor

Website screen is filling monitor - instead of having access @ top & bottom of screen to other websites/programs. I've lost the screen i usually have - where you have a top & bottom showing all the websites you have open, and on the bottom, outlook, word, etc. None of that is showing up, i just have one big view of my one and only current website page that i'm viewing. How do i get my other setting back where i can access everything?

Website Blinks When I Move The Mouse

I have ie8 x64, and windows vista home x64. Ever since installing ie8 via windows update, i have had a very annoying problem. Lots of websites, including this page where i am submitting this question, blink or flash when i move the mouse. Just the page and elements on it, not the ie interface or windows task bar. I have read some confusing things as to whether this is an adobe flash player problem with ie8 x64 or just a glitch with ie8, but as it is doing it on this page, which from the source does not use adobe flash, i am not sure it is the problem.

Website Text Size Very Small

I got a new dell laptop with windows 7. For some reason, all websites appear with text in a really small font size. I've tried increasing font size and even set it to appear in largest text size. The problem is, then it's way too big and looks cartoonish. I also set it to make pages appear in 125% and 150%, which is also way too big and distorts the page.

I also lowered page resolution, but that doesn't work because the system has it set at the max, which is the suggested setting. Any ideas as to why windows 7 and internet explorer and firefox looks so different than xp or vista, etc?

Ie7 Not Receiving Website Content

Running windows xp, using mozilla firefox as main browser and avr virus protection - no problems here at all. I originally installed ie8 but every time i tried to open would get "data execution prevention" message which would shut me down. Eventually set waiver for ie8 but same result.

Eventually removed ie8 and installed ie7. Now program opens but after typing any site address in address bar, tab appears with site name (eg. "Msn"0 but no content on page. On all occasions (whatever site i try to visit) it seems to be trying to contact "127. 0. 0. 1"

Is there a solution or should i simply forget about ie altogether. Problem is that the reason that i am using avr anti virus is that i need ie to install mcafee anti virus.

Website Links Incorrect Operation

I am having several problems with my windows 7 oem on a newly purchased dell desktop commuter and a windows 7 upgrade from vista on a dell laptop. Every time i go to the windows 7 pages and ask a question about one of the problems (like the fact that settings change back to default, sound, mouse, etc. ) I am directed to a page that has answers for windows vista. That does me no good obviously, and so i become frustrated and wonder about the product which will not perform successfully and the proper availability of help.

Website Member Login Problem

I have membership to a football website i.e i have been supplied with a member user name and password. When i go the log-in page and put my details in and hit log-in, the user name and password i have entered just disappear and i cannot access the subscriber only content. The webhost has checked my log-in details from his computer and can navigate the website. Why won't my log-in work on my computer. I use internet explorer 7 and have no problems logging into ebay, hotmail etc. Is there something that needs to be enabled? The webhost can't replicate the problem, so can't really help me. He says it must be a fault on my computer. Any ideas?

Upgrade Option Program Website Error

I bought a copy of windows vista home premium 64x. When i go to the website and put in my product key it says i do not have a valid copy for update. That is jus tthe thing, i bought vista home premium 64 just to upgrade. I know it is valid because i bought the package from compusa brand new on 10/2/2009. I get validated updates and i have my copy registered. Any tips on how to get the website to accept my valid copy? I used caps and dashes exactly how it looks on my sticker.

I tried three times and then had to wait for two hours to try again. I can not get it to work. I am frustrated because i want my free copy. I paid for it when i bought my specific brand of vista. I bought the operating system "in the box". Please let me know what i should do.

Note; i did not buy the software from a computer manufacturer, i bought the system in the box. I realize this means i have to use the website located at; http://windows.com/upgradeoffer         however, it is not working. It keeps giving me an error screen. Help?

Stops Opening Pdf Files From Website

My customer runs this site built in frontpage and maintained by godaddy (http://courthousecowboysrunamuk.net/) about 2 weeks ago the page started freezing up after opening and closing pdf documents. Only after about 5 or more times of trying them. Random links from the site. Not the same one every-time. The customer is running xp. The problem does not occur on other sites. I have uninstalled and reinstalled adobe reader. I have disabled and re-enabled the add on in ie.

I booted with all but windows processes disabled and startup extras disabled. The problem still occurred. I made sure all windows, ie, and adobe updates were present. I tried the same on another xp pc and the same problem occurred. It does not occur on windows 7 computers. Do not have a vista in the office to try. Am going to uninstall updates from an xp computer to see if that fixes it, but any other ideas?

Cannot Download Anything

I have windows vista office ultimate and am using ie8 as my browser. I can't download anything. Anytime i try to open/run/save a file it just disappears. When downloading it will go 99% and then just go away. I don't know when the problem started exactly. I take online classes that require me to get files through internet explorer to do my coursework. I've tried everything i knew how to do (short of just completely reinstalling my operating system). I'm not the greatest with computers so please try to use "layman" terms.

Re Download Drivers

When i download a driver and try to expand/install it and it says down load error - down load again, which i download again but because the driver was downloaded before it does not actually download again, but shows in a split second that the driver has downloaded as (1). When i click the new downloaded driver it shows the same download error message. This is because the download begins from where the download stopped and not from the starting again, showing the same file from the hard disk.
Please tell me how to delete the cache file and re-download a fresh driver.

Download Error

I've downloaded (bought) windows 7 home premium yesterday, and the download (with microsoft download manager) went fine, but when i tried to open the file called windows 7 home premium (it's a 3-part download (setup1, setup2 and "windows 7. ")) A loadingbar comes up on the screen, but it only complete a litle bit (think it needs to unpack, so the thing thats supposed to happen is that you click on the windows 7. File, and then it'll unpack automatically, and spread files all over the folder, witch i btw placed on the c-drive) and then it says, that there's an error with the file, and that it may be damaged.

And if i try to open on of the setup-files, it tells me to choose a program to open it with, and i've tried word, adobe, internet and thinks like that, but nothing works. So that don't work either. ?

I've tried to download the files 3 times now, and i've also tried to download the 64-bit windows 7 - but same problem.

It's a litle - well, very complicated, but please help me, if you know what to do, or have a idea (any ideas will work!)  - I've payed 100£ for something, so it would be nice, if it would work.

Cannot Download As Administrator

We received two brand new hp6241f pcs running windows 7 from future shop here in canada. I got home tonight from work and found my dad still sitting in front of the first, trying to get it set up. At that point he was trying to activate the 60-day ms office trial but every time he clicked the link to get a key he'd get a message saying he wasn't connected to the internet. I confirmed that he was; we can totally surf.

I found another way of getting the key but kept getting redirected to a bing page that said "we are unable to find [url]. "

I tried a few times, figured it was a bad link and decided to move on. I went to download windows live mail.

Same stupid thing. The download page would load, the download would be about to begin and the redirect would happen again.

I've tried downloading firefox and ccleaner - same problem.

I've browsed forum after forum and answer after answer. There's only one user and she's identified as administrator.

I played with security settings up the yin/yang. I do hi-speed internet technical support for a living so i can easily disable common stuff. I followed some instructions to make changes of the user controls but full control is already enabled.

I'm at my wits end and hating win7. There are too damn many security options, if you ask me. Too many to find, apparently, because nothing i've done is working.

Opk Download

For the past several days, i have been trying to download the win 7 opk (oem pre-installation kit) with no luck. Have downloaded all the relevant docs & videos then started the opk download. It did request that i use the bits ie plug-in, which was done, but i find that it doesn't seem to work with win 7. The 1st download ended after only 17% stating that it was not downloaded due to the connection to the server being reset.

Tried again late last night hoping that it would be completed by the time i get back to it today, but found it failed again after 60% with the same failure. Any idea as to how i can get a complete download of the opk?

Error - You Need To Download Flash

Windows 7 on a 64 bit system thus all ie games just error message " you need to download flash. Just click here. " Abode does not have a flash for 64 bit sys _susann_love my new 4g win 7 hp laptop. The games impacted, on my system and it seems to be related to the 64-bit sys i bought, are on gsn.com & comcast.net games:

1. I ran the troubleshooting option, as these games worked on my xp system, with both service packs 2 and 3, which were downloaded immediately.
2. Java uploaded a patch immediately as well.

All seemed well with the world until this morning when i launched a trivia game on comcast and got that same error message. The troubleshooter did not recognize the program, tried to fo its thing and ran a check and said try the online support group. Basically i think comcast games may have some funky code - that it my interpretation, not microsoft.

Fyi - pogo.com games were always 100% ok.

Ie And Bing - Can't Download

I am unable to download most files when i try to access by ie (vista home premium, ie7). Downloading works fine in aol, google chrome and opera. The latest 2 are ad-aware update via cnet and my audible books from audible.com, although it has happened every time i try to download since bing infested my computer. It doesn't matter whether i press a "download" button or am auto directed, it goes to bing and thinks it's a search (see below messages). I contacted the bing help and they said this is an ie problem.

Download Win 7 Isos

Bought the ultimate disk from newegg as a preorder and wrote it off as a business expense. Almost 4 months down the line, i found the disk was scratched when i cleaned out my disk storage drawer. Was going to upgrade my hard drives today, but don't want to risk an operational system if the disk can't be read during installation. Is there a way to download the disk w/o relying on torrents or pirate sites. I already looked at microsoft.com, but it looks like i'll have to purchase a full disk from them and newegg doesn't do windows downloads from what i've seen either.
