There are some limits on older systems, please tell us something about your system and the harddrives (which windows, which harddrives, capacity...). Maybe we have a more clear picture about your problems then.

For all the people who are good with VLC media player, please help me if you can.

I never had a problem with the program EVER, until today. Whenever I open a file - *any* file, I get the stupid Windows pop-up saying that there is some error with VLC player and it needs to shut down. Basically whenever I open something with it, it decides to be an ass. I checked on their forum but I didn't find anyone with my problem or anything that could possibly help me. I wanted to re-install it with a different language, but after doing that I still had the same language... but that's not the problem obviously, it's just that the errors occured after that new install.

I tried re-installing but it still gives me errors. Any help?

queenie : did you uninstall it before reinstalling it ? or did you install it over the existing installation ? [i.e. try to perform a repair ?]

also, which version are you using ?

The first time I did it, I forgot to remove the previous install, but as I tried to install it, it gave me a choice of first removing the exisiting version and then installing the new one, which I did.

Then I tried re-installing again, and this time I first manually uninstalled the exisiting version and installed the new one.

I did the same thing one more time as I was still getting errors.

I believe I'm using the latest version. Mine is 0.8.5 which according to their site, is the latest version:

Latest packages (0.8.5)

Maybe the configuration of VLC is damaged. Try resetting the settings and cache files:

Either run the shortcut that says "Reset VLC defaults and quit" from the start menu or run this on the command line ("Start", then "Run") toward your VLC installation:
"C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe --reset-config --reset-plugins-cache --save-config vlc:quit" (without the quotes)

HTH

I'm sorry it didn't work. Let's try another way:

- First, configure the Windows Explorer to show hidden files.
- Click on the Start button and select "Run".
- Type in "%APPDATA%\vlc", without the quotes, and hit Enter.
- Now you shold see one folder "cache" and one file "vlcrc".
- Delete these folders & files, they'll we be recreated when VLC starts.
- Run the "Reset VLC defaults and quit" from the start menu again.

If this doesn't work either, consider downgrading VLC:

As suggested here, sometimes older versions are more stable than newer ones.
Uninstall your current version, reboot, and try the older version. You can find 0.8.4a here or here.

Good luck

my sentiments exactly. try an older version queenie. did anything strange happen on your pc before the program stopped working ? perhaps an installation of a new program ?

midori what would you like to know about iso files ?

what i know about them is that theyre usually cd images of programs. if you use a burner like nero, you can burn the iso image to cd and use the cd as if it was an original of the program.

- Or you can download a program called "Daemon Tools". With that you can create "false cd-drives" to where you can mount different image-files, like .img, .bin, .iso and many others. They will act as if you had a cd in a cd-drive ... but you don't have to use a cd, just use Daemon Tools. The different amound of cd-drives you choose to create will show up as normally in "My Computer". That way you can install games and programs as if you were doing it from a cd. You most often need to use a crack with it tho, but what do we have internet for?

Daemon Tools are free for download. Search on www.download.com and you shall find

- Another way of "checking what's in the iso" is by installing WinRAR. It can open and use .iso-files. I dunno if the built in zip-program in WinXP deals with .iso-files. I prefer WinRAR anyways. You should be able to find an annoying trial - which you can use forever - on www.download.com. Hehehe.

I'm with dradeel! Daemon Tools made me happy playing The Sims 2 when I actually had space on my computer. It's a fantastic program.

I think you have following problem: Your harddisk and the partition table tell Partition Magic different values about the volume. So it doesn't touch the partitions. There is presumably an unallocated area which causes that problem. All windows partition managers I know produce this crap sometimes.

You may get rid of the problem with 'testdisk'. http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk
In most cases it can repair such things.

This will probably be impossible to sort out, but I'll give it a go anyway (nothing to lose, right) The thing is, one of my harddrives is not being recognized by my computer. It was fine until my dad had to remove something inside my computer that had melted (...long story) and when he put it back in, it did not work anymore. The harddrive isn't damaged at all and it works perfectly fine on my father's computer, but not mine. Any ways I can fix it, or is it just doomed?

Check following:
1. Jumpers: last one on the cable = Master, the other = Slave
2. Check the IDE - cable: Steal daddies cable and try it. If it's o.k. then you need only a new cable
3. Does the BIOS recognize it? If yes, then you have only to look into the drive manager of your system administration
4. Check, if pins are o.k., especially those on board, if the power cable is firmly attached.

Queenie - When that thingie in your computer melted, could it have damaged the IDE-cable that connects your harddrive to the motherboard? Or perhaps it's even the cable from the PSU. However if you've tried different cables then I have no idea.
