Back In Business

Well, I bit the bullet and bought a new hard drive for the desktop computer.  Rather than getting some one else to install it and to save money I did it myself - piece of cake.

Long story short, all is working just fine.  Got Windows reinstalled, along with all drivers and most programs I had before.  Touch wood it will continue to work fine.

Just two problems:
1) After a day, I have started getting a problem where is not recognising my external USB hard drive. I had the exact same problem before. Usually I would have to unplug it and then plug it back in OR restart the PC.

2) This other problem is more a nuisance than anything: When I click on a file to play in Real Player (I use this player for my Itunes music downloads - Windows Media Player is set as my default player), it works just fine, but at the same time as it opens and the music starts, I get an error message saying there is no disc in the drive (despite the fact I am playing the song straight from the computer itself).

By the way, am not liking the new look Blogger!!

  1. Wordpress allows seemless migration from Blogger to Wordpress. It's worth bothering, trust me. ;)

    My ADSL2+ router is my current pest... won't log-on every second attempt. I have to switch it off for at least a minute then try again. I think the network card is failing (Windows sometimes brings up a network device error on startup). It's fine connected to the laptop.
