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.

Flash Player Download Problem For Win 7

Im absolutely useless with anything technical. Ive got a compaq laptop, with windows 7. It was working fine until a few nights ago, and now when i go on the internet it tells me i need to install a flash player. When i try to do this it tells me this;

Adobe flash player is not supported for playback in a 64-bit browser. However, you can run flash player in a 32-bit browser running on a 64-bit operating system.

I have gone through so many different forums and tried so many different solutions and still have no luck. Its driving me insane. Please can some one help me.

Adobe Flash Player Download Problem

I was told this morning i needed to download the latest version of adobe flash player, which is 10. 1. Upon attempting to do so, i was told i needed to uninstall any previous versions, which i did. When i tried to download the new version, i was then told it failed, and i would have to temporarily disable my anti-virus, which i am not going to do. Can anyone please tell me what's going on here? I would assume adobe is a trusted site-i do have adobe reader.

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.

Sync Playlist To Flash Drive

Is there a way to sync a play list to a flash drive, they play that play list on another pc using wmp-12? When i sync a play list to a flash drive, the play list is not carried with it. Just copying the play lists to a matching folder on the flash drive does not seem to work. It would also be nice to have an option to carry album art with the sync too.

Bsod When I Plug Flash Drive In

On three different windows 7 computers (two of the computers the hard drives were wiped clean of xp by windows 7 home premium upgrade 32-bit, the other a new laptop shipped with windows 7 home premium 64-bit pre-installed) when i plug either of the two flash drives i have, sometimes i will get a bsod for a couple seconds and then it reboots. Not even half the time, but i always wonder each time i put one in, will it happen this time?  If i leave the flash drive in while it reboots, there is no problem using it once i get back to the desktop. I uploaded the 3 mindumps that are on this computer to http://tinyurl.com/ye4zcm2 .

I know the file 020410-28392-01.dmp is from when i plugged a flash drive in, but the other two probably were too, so i uploaded all three. I tried using the debugging tools from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315263 but either it's not working right because i couldn't find a c:windowsi386 folder and didn't find i386 on the windows 7 dvd (though i suppose there's one on the xp disk) or i just don't get what it's telling me.

Flash Drive / Sd Card Removal

Windows 7 professional 64bit - after i use a flash drive or sd card and remove it, i get a message when i log off my user acct "logon ui.exe - no disk - please insert a disk into drive deviceharddisk5dr5. I have had this problem since installation of win 7. This was a new installation. I would restart my computer and the messages would cease after a fresh boot - until i used a flash or sd card.

Now i am getting the messages even after new boot. I have to click the cancel button around 3 times as the message box appears and then my logon screen appears. I then log on and everything is normal until i log off and i get the message box again - even though i have not used a flash-drive or sd card. I have an internal card reader installed which also has a usb port. I get the same message regardless if i am using card reader sd /usb or computer usb ports.

Usb Flash Drive Problem

I have windows 7 on a dell inspiron 1525 (originally came with vista). Every time i use my flash drive to read or play files, or even just view files on windows explorer, it freezes up. The only way to fix it is to unplug it and wait, otherwise it will just sit there with a blank white screen. This never happened on my xp desktop. But what i wanted to do was back up my system. It seems to work until it reaches 25%.

That's when it freezes again. This also happens with a blank cd. The only external memory (besides an external hdd [i never tried that]) that works is a sd card. I don't have a high enough memory card so i'm stuck. I need something to back my system on.

Code 43 And Flash Drive Not Working

I am getting the error reading that my flash drive is corrupted. However, i have tried three different ones with the same message and they all work find on my laptop that is also running windows 7. I have tried uninstalling the device drivers and this has not worked. I have seen that others have had the same problem without much help that worked. I expect it may be a windows 7 bug. Haven't had this problem on any of microsoft's other operating systems and i have used them all.

Cannot Open Flash Drive With Autorun

I have windows 7 64 bit on my christmas present(dell laptop). I work for a company that prohibits use of unauthorized flash drives. All authorized flash drives are password protected and an autorun program runs to prevent access until the password is entered. Someone told me widows 7 does not allow autorun on a flash drive and will not even warn the user of the issues and allow the user to override the prohibition (like pop up blocks). How can i use a flash drive with an auto run program on it when inserted into a windows 7 64 bit pc without modifying the autorun file on the flash drive required by the company?

Flash Drive Is Recognized Then Disappears

I bought a lexar twistturn flash drive in december. It has functioned wonderfully with windows xp and vista, but my computer with windows 7 on it has given me problems. The computer is a compaq that came with windows 7 pre-installed. When i plug the flash drive into any of the usb ports, it is recognized and autoplay starts, but about ten seconds after the autoplay window opens, it closes and the flash drive is no longer recognized. This continues in a cycle for as long as i leave
The flash drive plugged in.

I have googled this problem to death, and have found no solution. I also contacted lexar tech support and was told that the problem is likely being caused by the pre-installed drivers. I have checked that my the os is up to date (it is), as well as trying to find drivers to re-install on the manufacturer's website. They may be there somewhere, but i have been unable to find them.
I'm pretty much at the end of my rope with this problem: please help?

Can't Erase From The Usb Flash Drive

I attempted to install a chrome os(portable) on to my 8gb flash drive, but it didn't work. But i can't erase it from the flash drive now because windows vista recognizes it as a unformatted drive and now reads as 720mb. I did not try to format the drive because i don't know if it will do further damage.

The software i used to install the .img file is win32diskimager (https://launchpad.net/win32-image-writer/+download), i used this software along with power iso all the time so i figured i knew how to install something from a flash drive i was wrong, the only thing i can possibly think of is a software program to decipher the type of .img it is and delete it.

Unable Eject Usb Flash Drive

I've recently installed windows 7 on my system and since then i am having problem in ejecting my usb devices. When ever i click on eject the pop-up notification in the system tray says "your hardware can be removed safely" but the light on the flash drive still keeps blinking and i can still access the drive. Even if i repeat the process of clicking on safely remove hardware at various location(system tray, devices and printers, my computer. ) I am still able to access the device despite the message "you can safely remove the hardware)

My flash drive has even produced bad sectors because of unplugging the device ignoring this.
