Speaking of SP1.
Any press releases as to when SP1 is scheduled to release?
To re-run Profile Chooser, look in your Start Menu under Datavision or Colorvision or whatever brand the Spyder line was called when you purchased it. I copied that shortcut to my desktop, and I just run it every time I come out of sleep or locked mode.
Found it. But in my version, ColorVision Spyder2Express v2.3.5, I had to go to Program Files>ColorVision>Utility>ColorVision Startup. Click on ColorvisionStartup and that reloaded the profile just like when you boot the computer. Works good, so far. Made a shortcut for further use. Too bad they don't tell you about it at the site.
Thanks, Greg. A great help indeed.
No problem. And sorry about my anti-Vista rants. It's a decent product, with good improvements over XP. I'll just be more satisfied when MS fixes the things that weren't broken in XP.
Here's an amusing take:http://dotnet.org.za/codingsanity/archive/2007/12/14/review-windows-xp.aspx
But did he really say he sleeps with his laptop?
So I have an external drive that has about 400GB worth of movies on it. I'd like to leave them on my HD and just view them vs. burning them and having yet another big disk case.
What are my options to view the .ISO file?
Here's wht I've done already. Went to open the file through WMP and ignored the warning dialog about campatability. (I was able to do this on the older version installed w/ my XP box)
D/L Alcohol 120%. When the installer asked me to reboot to continue installation. I cancelled the install.
*The only reason that an installer needs to reboot half way through the process is because it's adjusting the Kernel. I'm not gonna let an app adjust the Kernel unless I KNOW what it's doing. That's too risky in my book.. Unless someone in here has proven sucess w/ installing alcohol and viewing .ISO's......
I'm trying power ISO now and I REALLY like it in regards to burning disks and creating bootable images. I'm having trouble understanding how to use the virtual drives though.
Here's a link to a video of what I'm doing and what is showing up. Maybe this is due to not having the proper codec? That seems strange since I can watch the same movie through my DVD player when I insert the disk into my optical drive.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6B26asyGKDo
The screen is a little low res so I'll step by step what I'm doing in case it doesn't make sense:
Launch power ISO.
Mount an ,iso file using power ISO
go to File>open
Browse to mounted drive
When I get to this part it lets me open the drive. But then it let's me into the audio/vudeo files instead of having a just letting me double click on the drive and it launch the movie.
Hmm, have you tried any other software other than ultraISO? When I get home from work I'll try out a couple of things and see what I can figure out.
You did say you are able to play regular DVD's on the computer correct? Using the optical drive?
I've tried Dameware and Alcohol 120% you told me about the reboot reason..
Yes, My machine can play DVD's via the optical drive.
My machine runs perfectly as far as I'm concerned.
I finally dumped Norton since it was causing more issues than helping. I read it was cumbersome and slow. Software companies usually don't stay in business if the software is no good and Nortons been around for a while. So I gave it a shot to see first hand if it was junk. It is.
There are several posts in this thread about the different anti-virus software out there, both free and pay. Avast! is one, as is NOD32 from eset. I read Ric Grupe's post here and downloaded the free trial of NOD32 here. Loved it and finally did buy a year license for $40 and it's great. Runs the scheduled scans in the background, unlike Norton, takes up a lot less room and is very fast on my machine. To be honest, I feel better buying the license rathar than having a free one 'cuse then I feel I have a company committed and I have justification for complaining, if need So far, no complaints and I do like it.
I have another question. Which anti-virus software do ppl recommend? I hear avast is supposed to be very nice.
I finally dumped Norton since it was causing more issues than helping.
I also dumped Norton a long time ago, but in those days it was not all that easy to get rid of all of its components--a simple uninstall left a lot of crap on the machine. I don't know whether that's still the case, but you might want to Google it to see whether there are any additional steps you need to take.
