Import Pictures And Video Box Will Not Close


About a month ago i started having a random issue with the "import pictures and video" box. The computer completes the import of pictures and video from my digital camera, a noise tells me it is done, but the box remains on the screen. I click on "cancel" and then "yes" when it asks if i want to cancel importing. Yet the box still remains. It remains even if i disconnect the cord to my camera. I have to end the program using the task manager. I am doing nothing differently to have caused this problem. I import pictures about 4 times a week. Any ideas?

Cannot Import Video

I have a netbook running windows 7 starter. I am trying to use my new sony handycam and so i downloaded windows live movie maker. I had the old movie maker on my dell with xp and it just crashes and freezes constantly. I thought i would try to do it on the new netbook, but when i try to drag or open a video file, it moves it but has a grey screen with a red round dot and x on it. The clips have the right time length but no video footage or sound. What is wrong? Files are . Mpeg i believe which is supposed to be a supported file.

Import Video From Camcorder

I have a sony dcr-trv22 camcorder that connects to my computer via 1394 firewire. I'm using windows 7 64-bit professional. When i connect the camera to the computer, the camcorder shows up under "printers and devices" with the correct name, so it appears to connect ok. However, i cannot do anything else with it. I can't import video using either windows live movie maker or nero software. The import software doesn't recognize the camcorder, even though the computer does recognize it and has installed the windows native drivers for it. Sony does not offer drivers for this device other than those found in the windows os.

How can i import video when the software won't recognize it, but the computer does?

Shortcut Target Box Is Grayed Out, How To Enable Use Of Box?

Every time i try to unchecked the box in read-only then click apply and exit the window but then go back into the window to check to see if it did what i wanted it to do, the read-only box is checked when i want it unchecked. I need it unchecked so i can "edit" a file for a game so i can download all the images and have the game run faster. I've googled the problem for about a day and one solution seemed possible but a error comes up that says that the acl is a invalid structure.

So i googled that problem and the solution came to deleting all the acls' and putting yourself as the only admin or something along those lines. So i was wondering is their a way to get the read-only box unchecked and stay unchecked, so that i can affect the target box since it is grayed out?

Picture Import Settings

I want to change the import settings for my canon camera when importing photos using windows 7. I had already managed to do this once but want to adjust the settings again. However, when i connect my camera to my pc, it automatically starts importing photos based on current settings with no option to change.

The above is from another thread regarding the same problem i have. The dialog box with "import settings" flashes, then goes away before you can make changes. The person above was given a link to a boilerplate answer that doesn't address the problem.

Ie8 Slow To Close

I run vista home premium (32) on an hp pavillion dv6809wm laptop, 3 gig ram. I use ms internet explorer 8 and it runs as well for me as for anyone, most of the time- speed ok, page load ok- not too many issues. But it routinely does something that drives me fugbuck. When i go to close it, it disappears from the screen and from the taskbar, but the shortcut on my dt stays highlighted for anywhere from 30 seconds to >2 minutes, during which time i cannot do anything else.

I can't even open task manager to see if something is eating resources. I regularly clean out temp files and other garbage; i am savvy enough to do all the basic things that are usually suggested first. I also do not enable any add-ons except adobe pdf, do not use yahell toolbar or any other tool bars. Doesn't do it all the time, but at least one time in three. Anyone heard of this one?

Import Favorites Lost Their Icons

I recently installed a new workstation running windows xp sp3 and ie7 (as was my previous workstation1). Can't go to ie8 because it is not certified to run with my company's enterprise software.

I exported my ie favorites from the old pc and then imported them on the new one; all the icons for my favorite sites have changed to generic ones. Why did the icons disappear and how can i get them back to stay? I have visited some of the sites and sometimes the icon comes back and other times it doesn't. Also, the icons don't always remain. Sometimes, for no apparent reason when i launch ie, some of them are back to generic again.

Extremely Slow Music Import

I've got a fresh install of windows 7 on a new system and am adding music to my wmp library. The music folder is around 60 gb and is stored on my whs. The music import has been running now for almost 24 hours and is finally almost done. This seems like a ridiculous amount of time required to import music.

On my older vista system (much lower specs), the same import took way less time ( i think under a couple hours) and i was on a 100mbps ethernet. With the new system, i'm on a gigabit ethernet.

Why would it be taking so long under windows 7 compared to vista?

Note: i have unchecked the check box to retrieve additional information from the internet, and it didn't make a difference

System specs:
Amd ii x2 250 dual @ 3. 0 ghz
4 gb ram
Windows 7 32 bit

Usb 2.0 Tv Box Driver

I bought a new tv tuner card(mron). Installed all required drivers provided by the company. When tv plugged in, the os is unable to detect the drivers. The error msg is "device driver software was not installed successfully". And when clicked on the software it is giving "failed to initialize tv". The same device is working in winxp. I tried to run the tv software in winxp using program compatibility utility from action center. But, that didn't solve the problem. Can some one help me on this.

Win 7 Vs Media Box

I have a generic media box connected to my network and my television. When the video server computer used windows xp mce, the media box connected to shared folders on the computer. When the video server computer used vista home premium, the media box required a user id and password. Entering the same user id and password i used to logon to the computer allowed the media-box to connect to shared folders on the computer.

No the video server computer uses windows 7 home premium, the media box requires a user id and password. Entering the same user id and password i use to logon to the computer does not work. Creating a new user account does not work. Removing the password does not work. Changing the network security settings so that no password is required does not work. The windows 7 computer's network settings are:

Turn on network discovery turn on file and printer sharing turn on sharing so anyone with network access can read and write files in the public folders media streaming options are 'allow all' enable file sharing for devices that use 40- or 56bit encryption turn off password protected sharing use user accounts and passwords to connect to other computers. I use an xbox 360 to show avi videos, pictures, mp3 music, and recorded tv, however most of my videos are in vob format. I realize that i could convert all of my vob files to avi files, but i would lose the dvd functions, and i have a lot of videos in vob format.

I used to have the functionality i wanted in windows xp mce, and also in vista (even though it required a logon). I would like to have exactly the same functionality using windows 7.
My preferred option is to disable or completely remove the windows 7 network security, so that a shared folder is totally unsecured as it was in windows xp.

Changing Import Destination In Outlook 2007

When i import messages from outlook express 6 to outlook 2007, all messages go to outlook mailbox, by default. Is there a way to change the destination folder? I want the messages to go to an archive folder (. Pst file), not the mailbox folder, because service provider has a size limit on the mailbox folder, and the number of messages to import is quite large. I've tried exporting from oe 6, and importing from outlook 2007. Neither approach allows me to select the destination folder. Please help out.

Import Scan Error Access Denied

Hp scanjet 4600 scans and imports ok in admin user account but not in my personal one that is also admin account. Scan proceeds ok until import is attempted. Subdirectory and file name is created (visible in windows explorer) in the target location but the wizard aborts before completing the save and indicates that the import could not be completed: access denied. The only way to get out of this loop is to cancel and answer yes to delete the file. Any ideas what is causing this or interfering with the import function?

Import Storage Folders In Live Mail

I am transferring data from an old hard drive to a new hard drive. I "exported" all my messages, which included a lot of storage folders from the old drive to disc. Now i am trying to "import" the messages and it tells me the folders "are empty or in use by another program". They are not empty. I can clearly see that the date transferred correctly. How do i get the storage folders and messages contained therein imported in to windows live mail on my new hard drive?

Unable To Import Outlook Express Mail

I have a new computer running windows 7. I used outlook express on my old xp computer. I found the file on my old computer with emails, folders, etc. And have it on my new computer under documents. I tried to import the folder and i get an error. I have lots of sub folders and so i decided to import them one at a time. I was able to import one folder, but i can't find that folder now in live mail. I get an error when i import the inbox, too.

So, where do i find my imported mail and any idea on the inbox import error. It doesn't say what the error is, just says an error has occurred.

Error Message - Program Is Not Responding Close Down Anyway

Error message "program is not responding close down anyway" while using music programs, playing game and during system shutdown. Audio glitch with freezing - please helpthe other day my 64-bit windows 7 started messing up with audio. The moment i try to play a song on itunes it freezes and stays on the 0:00 time mark. I have to ctrl+alt+delete it to get it to close (it registers as "not responding").

Same thing happens with youtube, and any game i try to play. Even when i shut off my computer it has the "program is not responding close down anyway?" Prompt for the little audio noise when its turning off/logging off. When it has to play a sound for a usb being plugged in, it just plays really low static. Unfortunately, i am an idiot and don't have a full backup, only an online backup of about 2 gigs and i haven't updated in a while. I have a physical external hard drive now and backed it up, but obviously if it now working now, that wont do much.

How To Find And Close A Program Using Mirror Drivers?

Aero troubleshooting told me that "a running program uses a mirror driver (a type of display driver) which is not compatible with the aero desktop experience. To allow aero effects to be displayed, close any programs that use mirror drivers, such as windows remote assistance and windows live mesh. "

Aero effects were working fine earlier in the day. I had to get help from hp for some printer problems and i allowed them access to my computer and they removed and then reinstalled the printer files and that works fine now but the aero effects do not.

I would appreciate any help.

Disappearing Buttons Minimize, Size, Close

I installed windows 7 64-bit version a few days ago and i have a problem with minimize, resize, close buttons. When i am opening the new window, browser etc. Buttons are visible, but when i am hover (in fact onmouseout event) they are disappearing. I didn't erase also any drivers, however i installed the newest nvidia graphics driver. It is still the same problem.

Minimize, Maximize And Close Button Disappears

For some reason the minimize, maximize and close buttons disappear on top of my windows. This is so for all applications. The buttons are not visible, but they still work. For instance, if i click in the top right corner of the application, the application will close.
 
I don't know what causing this. Sometimes it happens just after i started my pc. Sometimes it doesn't occur for over an hour. I've tried to detect the reason, but i wasn't able.
 
I've surfed the internet trying to find a solution, but couldn't find anything that works (they speak of nvidia drivers often, but there isn't a nvidia driver in my laptop. ) Does anyone have a solution for this problem?
