  • Double post, but I can't edit previous post. A few tips for the aspiring 2k user: If you plan on using CS6 programs DO NOT install this "Windows2000-UpdateRollup2-x86-ENU" It will cause CS6 to generate application errors preventing it from r…
  • @Bry89 I had to manually extract the msvcr 2005 setup files with 7zip to get it to run. Otherwise it would complain about needing msvcr90.dll... It needs msvcr90.dll to install msvcr90.dll? Paradox.
  • @win32 Strange, the only way I could get CS6 was to install the international version because North America (as recommended) kept complaining about system requirements in the error log. Then again I don't have extended, so.... It's a wee sketchy…
  • I don't do 3D stuff in Photoshop (I have dedicated programs for that) and half the time (more like 99.99%) I don't use bridge, I drag and drop what I want and Camera Raw does it faster than bridge. This is the first time I've done this "extending…
  • Hmmm, I guess taking a detour through windbg may be the only way then. That's all I guess?
  • Meh, reran setup with SP4 slipstreamed. This time around setup loaded when I selected "Advanced Configuration and Power Interface PC." So I blame using the files off my d600's OEM disc. It only comes equipped with SP2, so I installed SP4 after Win2k…
  • 2000 on Ivy Bridge x230t. Certainly not the newest hardware one's tried to install 2k on, but it certainly was trying. But there's a problem. After installing Extended Core and booting the system with halacpi and ntkrnlpa (turn on acpi), the sys…
  • I turned that featured thing off. It was painful.
  • So you're trying to make a Windows 1.0 Program? See: https://www.transmissionzero.co.uk/computing/win16-apps-in-c/
  • Give yourself credit, you got it working. Albeit briefly, but working. Hopefully you gain some lifelong experience that may help you in the future when troubleshooting other related things. Be glad your camera didn't need extensive modification t…
  • In my opinion, though, it may serve as a method to bolster sales of their own garbage pixel. I'm surprised Google hasn't made some special "Pixel Optimized" thing to advertise it more. But I do agree. Paypal and ebay of all companies offer call-i…
  • You can probably find a cheap Android for less than 20 bucks on ebay or get a prepaid+phone plan at a supermarket for a slightly more. But you get a plan with it so... I'm starting to see budget Androids getting into the cheapness realm of flip pho…
  • And then there's those Wabash disks. Someone handed me a set of 5.25 they wanted me to archive for a fee, and I turned it back. I told them, they can't pay me enough to deal with those disks. There was already shedding in the jackets.
  • To me, 7 will always look like a blander Vista. Only during its development when it had that beautiful overlay blur colorization across everything composited and had the colorful auroras everywhere did I find it attractive. (build 6730) RTM 7 only…
  • Toshiba T3100SX German model OR at least the first computer we had I was alive for and remember. Original Specs were: Intel 16Mhz 386SX No Maths Coprocessor Conner 40mb hard disk Citizen 1.44mb 3.5" floppy drive 2x Serial ports and a bidirec…
  • Firmware: https://mega.nz/#!aHwkRSBL!uUku1o2BbqDjc3nph6nkKV8s5KMVhqtB4stVqtmndRk It appears removing and reinserting baterries is the method of resetting the camera.
  • See if you can find a firmware update and reset the camera to factory settings before (and if that doesn't clear it) update the firmware. Maybe try a factory reset after the update as well.
  • Zip250 drives are backwards compatible, so yeah they'd work. 750s can only read (and not write to) 100s, but this isn't a 750. Awfully strange choice on Iomega's part not to make it a 750.
  • Yes, but for advertising. With all those fancy big screens in vehicles and all sorts of connectivity, it is only a matter of when that telemetry will be used for profit.
  • @Windows99SE said: @yourepicfailure said: Uh no, that's not how it works. You haven't seen what I've seen happen mechanically to cameras. But I'll tell you, tapping or bopping almost never works to fix mechanical faults. …
  • @Windows99SE said: That would require tapping or bopping the camera until the thing is in the right place. Uh no, that's not how it works. You haven't seen what I've seen happen mechanically to cameras. But I'll tell you, tapping or boppi…
  • And a good idea is to make sure your batteries are fully charged. Some circuits may tolerate lower voltages (like the onboard computer), but something like the CCD & drive circuitry will not.
  • The problem is driving a CCD sensor (your camera has a CCD sensor, not CMOS) requires a lot of energy and precisely timed analog signals. Believe it or not, driving one of these is based on driving a image capture tube (e.g. Vidicon or Image Orthic…
  • Miscommunication between camera and sensor, didn't initialize the sensor correctly. Happens periodically with those digital sensors, as they have a specific procedure to initialize and control sensor, like a CPU. Pull out batteries, wait a bit, put …
  • @win32 I wouldn't be surprised if we had Win10 iot wheels, with the way things are going. Oh and iot connected vehicles. With all new telemetry collecting information about where, when, how you drive to deliver superior advertising to your car. …
  • In reality, I really was considering it. A year ago I actually evaluated how well Debian with CDE (don't ask, I have my reasons) would work for my application. The 3D programs had Linux versions, and it worked very well thanks to their universal lib…
  • Along the lines of ending support, I am surprised Microsoft grouped Vista Server (2008R1) with 7 server (2008R2) in terms of support. They supported both this long even though they have their differences. I will continue to run 2008R2 on my rende…
  • The reason for a loss of resolution is how the camera handles zooms beyond its hardware/optical zoom. As you noticed. This means that the lens&mechanism allow the camera to produce a true 3x zoom at max. However, to provide that advertised "s…
  • Well that was a suggestion to help your camera focus on something better. Most cheap P&S cameras that era use that as a de facto method. Some pricier ones had multi-point, and most ones today have it as well.
