Wireless configuration utility will not start up if driver isn’t installed properly. Wireless LAN card might not appear in “Device Manager” or an unexpected mark shows up on your Wireless LAN card. There are some possible causes of driver installed incomplete: 1. Previous version of driver didn’t be removed complete -- Try to install previous driver then run “Uninstaller” to remove it again. After drier removed, reboot your PC. 2. Other Wireless LAN card has been installed on the PC -- Try to remove that Wireless LAN card first or make sure its driver has been removed complete before you install. 3. Hardware Conflict with other device -- There might be some other device, which doesn’t support well of IRQ sharing, shares the same IRQ with your Wireless LAN Card. Then you can try to change your Wireless LAN Card to other slot (PCI) or assign a free IRQ to your Wireless LAN Card in BIOS settings. For more detail, please check the User’s Manual of your motherboard for how to change IRQ settings.

DVD-Video is using MPEG-2 video compression technology. If you want to playback DVD-Video title, an additional MPEG-2 decoder especially designed for DVD-Video playback is need for decompression. And, through the MPEG-2 decoder hardware or software, you may have various settings on your high quality display and sound selections recorded in your DVD-Video disc. E.g. 1) Screen aspect ratio 2) Audio quality change 3) Language option Secondly, you will need to set the region code in your PC system, which can be recognized from your DVD-Video disc, before playing the DVD-Video disc.
UDF (Universal Disk Format Specification) is standardized by OSTA. UDF enable the file interchange among various platform and is optimized for large contiguous files. Further more, since UDF uses the physical block size (2K for DVD-RAM media) as its minimum storage block, it uses a media far more efficiently than FAT.
For playing DVD-Video title, you have to set the region in your PC system after installing MPEG-2 decoder. And the system will be fixed for one specific region DVD-Video playback. Regional Playback Control is required by Hollywood movie industry and defined by DVD Forum. Setup procedure is as follows: 1. Install your MPEG-2 decoder either hardware or software in your PC system. 2. Insert DVD-Video disc, which has the specific region code you want to set for your system, into DVD-ROM/DVD-RAM drive. 3. Start the application of MPEG-2 decoder. Normally, MPEG-2 decoder was fixed for specific region or requests user to setup the region for PC system. The DVD-ROM/DVD-RAM drive only reserve FIVE TIMES changing of the region setting. 4. Please follow up the setup procedure of MPEG-2 application. And set the correct region. 5. After setting, your system will be configured for the specific region. You can start to play the DVD-Video with this region code.
520S DVD-RAM is a rewritable DVD drive, which will enable write function when installed the driver WriteDVD, however, the driver will limit to some of the special DVD titles. To uninstall the WriteDVD will help to avoid the limit
First of all, you need an MPEG-2 decoder specially designed for DVD-Video playback. Then some settings to configure the decorder (either hardware or software) have to be decided, such as: 1) Screen aspect ratio 2) Audio quality change 3) Language option Secondly, the region code of your system has to be set. You can find related information on the package of the DVD-Video disc you'd like to play.
DVD-ROM drives offer several advantages over CD-ROM drives, especially in the area of storage capacity: · Greater capacity: With 4.7 gigabytes of storage capacity on a single layer and 8.4 gigabytes on a dual-layer disc, DVD-ROM offers more than 12 times the capacity of CD-ROM. When information is stored on both sides of the disk a single disk can hold up to 17 gigabytes, which is equal to 26 CD-ROM or 12,000 floppies. · Faster data transfer: A basic DVD-ROM drive offers variable data transfer rate at an average rate of 1, 108 kilobytes per second. · Flexibility: DVD will allow greater use and flexibility of Data Warehousing than ever before possible. One manufacturer has already developed a 100 disk juke box for DVD that can store 800 gig of data in a box only 2 x 2’ · Better Video: Because DVD-ROM has greater storage capacity and a faster data transfer rate than CD-ROM, it is possible to deliver up to full length movies on a one-sided disk using compression/decompression that yields broadcast quality video and stereo sound tracks for use in MS-DOS® /Windows® 3.x. Other operating systems supply their own ATAPI CD-ROM device drivers. AOpen CD-ROM passed the Windows 95 specification and carries the designed for Windows 95 logo.

V.90, K56flex, and X2 are compatible with previous communication standards like V.34, which means that whenever a high-speed 56k connection is not possible, the connection can be established via V.34. For example, a fallback to V.34 can occur if either the client or server side does not support the appropriate 56k modem protocol (for example, a K56flex modem is trying to connect to an X2 modem), or if a combination of network and subscriber loop conditions prevent the utilisation of a 56k protocol. Older protocols like V.21 and 22 are also supported, so the modem can go all the way down to 300baud. Most 56k modems will automatically detect the capabilities of the remote modem and automode to the capability of the remote modem.
If you have a V.90 modem you should be able to obtain a connection greater than 33.6k. You may also obtain a connection speed greater than 33.6 if you are using a K56flex or X2 compatible modem, as Xtras network consists of both types of equipment. Secondly, there may be telephone network limitations that prevent you from connecting at the full 56k, such as the age of the telephone exchange you are on, the distance you are from the exchange, and the nature of the equipment in the exchange. These variables are outside Xtras control, and therefore Xtra cannot guarantee that you will obtain a 56k connection, whatever protocol your modem supports.
56k is available nationwide.
The Xtra Help Desk is available between 7am to 11pm, 7days on 0800 CALL Xtra (0800 22 55 98).
The higher transmission speed is only available for the downloading of data, that is, data received by the customer from the ISP. This is because the ISPs end is the only end digitally terminated and data sent from the ISP to the customer doesn't go through an analogue to digital conversion. Transmission of data from the customer to the ISP still requires an analogue to digital conversion, limiting upload speeds to 33.6kbps. Because traditional Internet access is a highly asymmetrical process in that most data flows from the Internet to the end user (communications from the customer to the Internet is usually button clicks or address entries), 56k modems are ideal for high speed Internet connections.
Traditional modems assume that both ends of a modem conversation (the customer to telephone exchange, and the telephone exchange to the Internet Service Provider (ISP)) have an analogue connection to the PSTN. The conversion of the data signal from analogue to digital and back again whilst it travels over the telephone network causes corruption of the data signal, which limits the transmission speed to 33.6kbps. 56k modems are different in that they assume that the ISPs connection to the telephone network is a digital one, therefore only one analogue to digital conversion is required in the transmission of the data signal. This reduces the amount of corruption of the data signal and enables a higher transmission speed.
Xtra supports the V.90 56k modem protocol. V.90 is the official ITU-T 56 kbps modem standard that enables high speed Internet downloads over standard telephone lines using compatible modems. The previous 56k modem protocols are called K56flex and X2. These are different protocols that do not interoperate. V.90 enables older K56flex and X2 modems that have been upgraded with V.90 software to interoperate. If you have an older 56k modem, which uses one of these protocols, you should contact your modem supplier to obtain a V.90 upgrade.
You can get access to the Internet at speeds faster than the previous maximum of 33.6kbps, making the downloading of graphics-intensive web pages, sound and video files much easier. The higher connection speed will also enhance: ¡P Internet telephony applications ¡P interactive gaming ¡P collaborative computing ¡P video-conferencing And you don't have to pay for special phone lines.
