    External DVD burner and external DVD player no longer work

    Hi David, you don't seem to be having much luck with DVD drives do you ? :) Two different drives not being recognised - could be linked to the USB port itself. 1. Do you have another USB device that you can try - to see if that works. Also - try a different USB Port. If it does then it is...

    Password Protect a Folder on Win10 PC

    Hi, Win 10 Pro does have a method of locking a FILE [ not a folder as far as I know ] However, Wn10 Home does not. It is possible to hide folders but it is just as easy to make them visible again. If you want to try this click here There is another way. This is done by denying access to your...

    Need help

    It has been a while since you posted. If you do read this - you need to backup any files / photos from the clicking drive that you need. A clicking drive is usually a failing drive.

    Faster Powerline!

    It really depends on what you want to use your system for. If it is doing what you want, without problems, then there is no need to go to the expense of upgrading just for the sake of it. I see what you mean - the AV2000 is over £100 here [ probably nearer to 120 Euro ] :(

    Faster Powerline!

    Hi, You should be getting better than 30Mb/s from your 600Mb/s but there may be reasons why you are not. This article - click here - explains. Referring to your original question: Should you upgrade. The article suggests that AV500 system is faster than an AV200 system [ as you would expect ]...

    Faster Powerline!

    Hi, Your AV500 units are capable of up to 500Mb/s over a wired network [ house wiring ] and 300Mb/s over a wireless network. As your ISP has upped your connection from 30 to 600 Mb/s your AV500 unit should give you faster download speeds. You should see some improvement without upgrading.

    Access denied in safe mode

    As you are a new member we don't really know you. You could be anybody. We cannot take the risk of supplying information to by-pass passwords just in case the pc isn't yours. I am not suggesting for one minute that this is the case - but you have got to see it from our point of view. I am sorry...

    Unable to get past Command Prompt

    Hi Kev and welcome to FpcH How do you know this? Try netstat -a If your machine has been hacked you will probably need the help of one of our security specialists. I will ask Starbuck to take a look at your system.

    Can someone advise me about viewing photos on a dvd player?

    I find this VERY odd. You have burned a DVD with photos - you get " photo error" You have put the photos on a Memory Stick - you get "photo error" You have used an older DVD and this plays OK Is all of this correct ? If you want to see the photos on the TV there is another option - NOT using...

    Free alternative to EaseUS todo PCTrans

    I tend to agree with you re: moving 25GB with a free software. If you are moving large amounts of data / software then you are probably best biting the bullet and going for the software that you know and trust.
