Roxio Intermittent Interruption - Cd Drive Unstable

With factory installed windows 7 and roxio 1. 01, when a cd is playing, clicking on the roxio icon causes the music to be intermittently interrupted and the cd drive to go unstable. New dell studio 1555 with factory installed windows 7 and roxio 1. 0. With roxio, when a cd is inserted into the cd drive on the laptop, the roxio icon automatically appears on the desktop, the cd play window appears on the desktop and the cd begins playing.

A click on the roxio icon causes intermittent interruption of the music (about 0. 5 second alternating surges of music and silence. The cd drive sounds like it is switching between speeds at the same rate. Roxio does not open. I downloaded update r226903 for the roxio from dell website. Any fixes?

Network Unstable

1. Windows 7 unable to see other windows although all are set to the same network. But manually typing the computer name on the browser is ok. Its unstable, sometimes can see but most of the time you cant.

2. Printer xerox phaser 3124 connected to win7 x64 & shared out among users. Whenever other win7 prints, after 1 print out it shows off-line. Then we need to go to print spooler to restart but this doesn't happen to other windows.

Disappearing Drives, Unstable Boot Up Process

I've been using the windows 7 on my old asus desktop for a few months without a glitch until recently when the hard drives started disappearing by themselves or freeze after copying large files from the external hd and crashed. I reinstall the windows 7 few times, all of the oldie drivers that came with the pc, and the os updates nothing seem to help.

My pc is set to the s3 mode and three of the four internal hard drives are 1tb in sizes and they are all sata drives. I have a cd drive that is on the pata and it doesn't seem to cause any trouble. When the hard drives went to sleep, they woke up without any problem in the past.

When it was fresh installed a few months back, the windows 7 os was already providing all that was needed to run the pc to communicate with the rest of the internal hard drives for a few months without a single problem. I did use the drivers that came with the pc only to solve the problems but the symptions are persistent. I've been downloading microsoft updates regularly from the ms site so my pc is up to date as far as the os is concern and i wonder if the newer updates are to blame.

The moment the pc is booted up, "my computer" icon would show one or two, sometimes all three hard drives (excluding the main c drive) and when one of the troublesome hard drive is clicked to open, the pc would hang indefinitely. Only shutting down the pc completely (not resetting) would allow the boot up process to continue back but often the pc wouldn't boot up but frozen up on the big windows 7 ms icon at the beginning of the boot process indefinitely. If it was the hard drives problem, one or two, even all three drives wouldn't disappear randomly.

Alternative To Windows Networking - Unstable Printer Sharing

I've been using windows 7 for a month now on one pc. I have a home network for other pc's running winxp service pack 3. I am a very frustrated windows 7 user. My network is unstable, printer sharing is iffy at best and i have to hold my breath whenever i try to use a shared file. Previously, with an all xp network, my network was flawless for years at a time. I've been following advice on the forum trying to troubleshoot the problem, but i have a day job and can't spend all my time booting this and that and trying different combinations of things. My question:

Is there a reliable alternative to windows networking. I have trivial requirements - to use a printer physically connected to one of the xp machines and to do simple file sharing across the network. I am even considering buying a copy of windows xp and doing a clean install on the machine running windows 7, but this would be days and days of work. Any insights for a frustrated windows 7 user?

Intermittent Audio Issue

Jvc camcorder with hard drive saves video files with a mod extension. In the past with xp or vista you simply change the extension to mpg and they play with no problem. However; with win7 they only work about 50% of the time. You have to restart the files several times to get audio, video is never an issue.

Playing files from the desktop whether mpg or mod work about 30% of time when using them through media player. Using media center to run the files yields significantly better results closer to 80%.
If the files are copied to the my video folder they seem to have a slightly higher success rate. Media center is closer to 100%. No matter which format the files are in mod or mpg, they always work in windows live movie maker.

Intermittent Sound Corruption

I have recently bought an acer aspire m3802 desktop with windows 7 64 bit, 8 gigs ram, intel core 2 quad @2. 5ghz. I transferred my sound blaster card from my old computer to this one. It is the sound blaster x fi gaming card. The computer boots up fine and performs well. But at some random point during its use, the sound will get corrupted. There's popping, cracking, and then sometimes silence. Sometimes the sound returns on its own for a little while before going out again. Sometimes i have to reboot the computer to get the sound back to normal. But get this, when there is no sound and i restart the computer, the exit windows sound chimes before shutting down.

I believe that something is conflicting with the sound card or sound driver. This computer comes with on-board sound. I disabled the drivers thinking that was the problem. But the problem persists. I need the sound blaster card for the ability to use asio for music production. Anyone else have this problem? What should be my next step in troubleshooting this?

Intermittent Usb Not Detected Problem

My problem is the following: i have a genius traveler 315 laser mouse which i brought last summer and it worked perfect on my laptop. Recently i have bought a new laptop, on which the mouse does not work anymore.

The problem is very awkward, because the behavior of the mouse on the new laptop is completely random: on several occasions it actually worked perfectly when plugged-in, but most of the times (e.g. After restarting the os or unplugging the mouse and plugging it back) it didn't. This behavior is even stranger because on my old laptop and several others the mouse still works perfectly.

My first opinion was that the problem is with the usb or mouse drivers, but when i tried another mouse and an external hdd on the new laptop, they both worked fine. I even copied the usb-related drivers from my old laptop to the new one, hoping i could solve the problem that way, but the outcome was the same (on both laptops the os is win 7).

Another possibility was that one of the wires in the mouse's cord was broken, but i crossed that out, too, because i tried twisting the cord as much as i could while it was working on the new laptop and it still worked fine. The usb sockets on the new laptop are all working (i tried them all).

I know that the easy solution is to buy another mouse, but i rather figure out what is wrong with this one (or with my new laptop) than to spend money to replace a mouse that i know it is functional because i feel that that money would be wasted, i have no guarantee that the new mouse will work (if i'd buy a new one i'd still go for a genius) and, besides, i would be really glad if i could solve this awkward problem.

I have a dell precision m6500 laptop in a docking station with a usb keyboard and mouse attached running win 7 pro 64-bit. Most of the time, the machine works fine without any issues but occasionally, windows goes into this tight loop where every few seconds, it pops up the dreaded usb device not recognized balloon-even though i have not added/changed and usb device on the machine. I have tried disabling the device, uninstalling the driver, etc. But nothing i do seems to correct the problem. Please help because this is driving me crazy.

Or alternatively caused by driver ataport.sys

Ms Wireless Keyboard / Laser Mouse 5000 Intermittent Problem

I have an intermittent problem with my ms wireless keyboard and laser mouse 5000. Windows is not recognizing the receiver in "device manager" and will not allow any updates due to compatibility issues. My ms wireless has worked then when i re-boot, it will not work. I cannot find anything consistent about the problem so i can't troubleshoot the issue.

The only consistent thing is that when the device manager is reading a failure on the receiver, i can change ports and it doesn't change anything. I tried removing the drivers, and installing new drivers but nothing seems to help. What do i do to get win 7 device manager to recognize my wireless keyboard and mouse receiver?

Win 7 Fails To Assign A Drive Letter To A Usb Drive

Windows 7 fails to assign a drive letter to a usb drive (in this case an olympus ls-10 recorder). I have a plug and play ls-10 recorder. It works fine on all of my xp systems. When i plug it into my windows 7 64 bit system, "nothing" happens. Upon further investigation, the disk manager sees the drives (there are 2), but no letter is assigned. I tried assigning, but i keep getting a message that asks me to refresh, restart or reboot, none of which works. I have tries to uninstall and install the devices - same result. I tried to assign the drive letters in command mode, but i get a "no volume" error. Ny suggestions?

Bootable Flash Drive Or Hard Drive To Install Win 7

estimating windows 7 wim file sizes - ufd too small for image. I was trying to capture awim file for windows 7 to a bootable ufd, but the 16gb ufd was too small. I reran and directed the capture to a usb hard drive. Is there a tool to estimate the ufd size required? Is the fat32 format a constraint?Can i build a bootable usb hard drive and capture the image to it so that if i boot from the usb hd instead of the ufd? Can i install from a usb hard drive instead of the ufd? Then i would not be limited to the usb size of 16gb or 32gb.

Can't Eject Usb Hard Drive, Drive Always In Use

I have a 500gb maxtor onetouch 4 external usb backup drive that is set to do weekly backups with windows backup. This works great except that everything and their grandmother wants to spin the hard drive up whenever possible. This is not an ideal situation: with exception to backup, this drive is not used for anything. So i had a great idea, i'll keep the drive unmounted until i need to backup which then a newly created scheduled task would mount, backup and unmount when done! Well, turns out, windows doesn't think so. And this makes me a sad panda.

I Get Drive Full Error When The Drive Is 90% Unused

Reported used space on drive c continues to climb, but no data is actually added; ultimately i get drive full error when the drive is 90% unused. I recently upgraded to windows 7 from vista home premium (64 bit each). Other than that, i don't believe there has been any hardware or software changes in months. My c drive (sata ii, ntfs format) has a capacity of 500 gb, although i don t have more than 60 gb of material on it, which is the amount reported on bootup.

However, after some usage, the hard drive "appears" to be adding data at the rate of 50 gb an hour, as if some video is being recorded to the hard drive, which it is not. In fact, if i disconnect from the internet, the reported disk usage still continues to climb. Within a day, i get a disk full error and i cannot save anything. In other words, if i right click on the drive c icon after booup, then click properties, i see that the drive will be 60 gb used, or a11% of so, but an hour later it will report drive use at 20%, or 100 gb, and an hour after that it's showing 150 gb of hard drive use, etc.

If i re-boot and then check the hard drive usage again, properties will report only the actual 60 or so gb of use, but an hour later, i'm back up to 100 gb and so on until disk full appears again and i can't save a simple word document. Ideas on what is causing this?

Secondary Drive Or Any Usb Drive Is Not Accessible

After installing windows seven on my primary drive (followed the installation procedures for 7 on 32 bit xp pro) all works fine except my secondary drive or any usb drive is not accessible.get error message they are not available. They are in the setup bios and in devices, but in my computer if i left click i get the error message.

However my secondary disk is a sata 500 gig drive. Windows 7 will recognize dvd/cd drive but only the "c' drive (of hard drives)> i have tried usb drives in addition to the sata but it does not read them, only tells me they are not accessible. The one exception was the windows easy transfer data sent to a usb disk made prior to loading windows 7.

Remove Boot Drive When Win7 Is On Different Drive

I want to change out a drive, "f", but some how the windows boot manager is listed here on the drive i want to change. I tried swapping this drive, "f" but i cannot boot into win7 on "h". If i just remove the earlier version of windows xp using bcdedit(easybcd) would this work, i'd hate to do this and not be able to boot to anything. The output from bcdedit and easybcd is listed at the end of this posting.

As an added note you'll see that my win7 boot drive is listed as "h", i've no idea how this happened so how would i go about changing this back to "c" and whats the implications, i know i may have to reinstall some apps but anything else?
