I'm working on a multi-cam shooting setup. I have 12 Nikon D5000 targeting one object at different angles. I want all cameras to be triggered at the exact same time. So I have installed Vello Freewave Remote Shutter receivers on every camera and I trigger the shutter with one transmitter. They do all trigger, but sometimes, they are not all triggering at the same time. So 1 try out of 5, one or two cameras have slight shutter time difference with the other cameras. Is the radio frequency to blame? I cannot change it with the transmitter model I have. Would other setups work better?
I have a Toshiba laptop with windows 8 pre-installed in it. I would like to take a system image including OS, drivers and software. After that need to install windows 7 keeping windows 8 as it is. In case of failure, this image can be restored right?
If I want to remove windows 7 only how will I do it to keep windows 8 only.
i just bought my asus vivobook s400ca-dh51t 14 inch touch ultrabook and after a month of using the multi gesture suddenly it stopped working, i checked the mouse setting but i cannot find the device setting for the touch pad..
I have an Epson BX635FWD printer that has and does work perfectly with Windows XP. I have recently purchased a Lenovo B540 with Windows 8 and it loaded the print drivers immediately. I thought how easy it was but have since found that it will not print a multi page document in full, but will suddenly stop halfway through a page. I made do by printing a couple of pages at a time, but then tried to print a 10 x 15 cm photo and it would only print 1/3 before stopping and spitting the paper out. The number of pages it prints correctly before giving an error message and ejecting the paper is inconsistent.
I have reloaded driver 1.32 (for Windows 8) from the Epson site twice and I have also gone back to the disc supplied with the printer and reloaded the driver from there.
I actually have 2 problems. One with the Windows tiles, and the other one with Explorer/Libraries.
- First of all, I start with the small problem. I booted my PC today, and to my surprise, my Windows tiles were gone. Only the Store, Onedrive, Explorer and the Desktop are there. The rest? Gone. Very weird, never had this before.
So that is question 1: How to restore the Windows tiles. It's weird they disappeared, I did nothing with the configuration or something else.
- Second, and this is the main thing.
I have a serious issue with the Explorer/Libraries. My PC has 3 HDD's and 1 SSD. The SSD is, obviously, the Windows drive. Nothing special. The other 3 are for mass storage.
Stock, Windows sets all on the C drive. Like user stuff, install paths, you know. Also the libraries, like Pictures, Videos, Documents and Music. This is the part where it goes wrong.
I don't wanna have all my Music, Pics and the rest on my C drive. Only my Windows installation... So, I put my libraries into the D drive. I made a My documents folder on the empty D drive, and changed the direction path of the libraries on the left to the new My documents map. This goes good, except for the Music map.
The Music map thinks he is Desktop. I've tried to tell him, he's not, but the folder isn't listening. Without jokes, this is a really weird thing.
I tried to re position, but the Desktop and Music folder are thinking they are each other. I don't know how to solve this. The other folders do work, no problem with those. Except for these two.
Bad thing is also, I thought, if I delete the map, and create a new one, maybe that'll work. Not. Instead, Windows decided to delete both maps, Desktop and Music, so now, my icons, and music is gone. It's really weird, as I said, it's happening only with these maps.
Any solution or trick for this? Maybe,I could try and get the whole 'Users' map, from the C drive to D, so it makes one whole?
I recently tried to install Ubuntu 12.10, and lost access to Windows 7 and 8.1, after a LOT of looking for bootable disks and stuff, I did fix it.
After recovering the operating systems (I had to delete Ubuntu partitions and then fix the Windows 7 bootloader, because there was 6 primary partitions), the Windows 8.1 partition says its 10.0GB and empty, but when I double click on it, you can see the files inside.
This is bad, because when I try to boot in Windows 8, it gets to the login screen after a long boot time, then it just shows the time, battery, and internet status, and the rest is a blue screen, implying its broken. I found out this is because some OS files are missing, which might be related to the above paragraph. I have lots of paid software in Windows 8, and it was LOTS of downloading, so I dont want to wipe the drive, or have to touch the data, only be able to boot into Windows 8 again.
When I open in a partition viewer, it shows the 70GB partition as it should, and also
My computer is a Lenovo Y500 with windows 8. A few weeks ago I heard a friend of mine was having BSOD problems and that his computer stopped booting completely.
I brought my computer over and had a nice time, we were attempting to fix his computer by switching the hard drive out and changing his computer form windows 8 to windows 7. A USB device was used for that step. The USB device was not fully working so it was tested on the BSOD computer AND my fully working computer. His computer was fixed shortly after and began running again.
I took my computer back home and immediately noticed a slow down so I reformatted my computer.....it still seemed really choppy and laggy and froze alot. A day later I begin to get blue screens out the A$$ and eventually it comes to a Automatic repair loop. I had to order a recovery disk because my one key recovery no longer worked. I Ordered the recovery disk and bam my computer seemed to be working again after a long recovery process.
Foolishly I took my computer back to the place it seemed to work fine. Upon coming home again. I begin to notice problems and bam my computer tells me that It is in danger back up files or you may possibly lose them.
Another friend buys a new computer and he takes it to the BSOD house. Guess what he got? The BSOD he was using the flash drive used to add windows 7 to a friends computer to add windows 7 to his new laptop when it happened 6 times in a row. He recovered his computer and it seems to be working fine for now.
However my computer isn't; even after recovering it. While yes, it is moving fast and working great. The computer STILL gives me the warning that i must back up my files and what not. I also tried the CHKDSK in command prompt and it froze on 27% so I stopped it. I checked the D: and C: drives from my computer and going to properties but it said there are no problems.
The program that DOES let me know the problem still persists is the constant reminder telling me that their is a problem with the Device. Also my Intel rapid story device places an exclamation point on the HDD and says that one or more events, and data may be at risk. I do not know what to do...I feel that it is either a virus from the flash drive or possibly a Hardware problem caused by a surge in his house, but if that was true 2 of my other friends laptops would be fried as well.
It seems that this slowly happens over time each time I recover my HDD. The blue screens barely come. Its when I notice Games, and programs malfunction that the blue screen begins to show again.
I want to install a multi-boot W 8 / android and I've already boot on "android-x 86-4.2-20121225" (without install) with my W 700 but the wi-fi is not recognized. how to find a version of android who recognized the wi-fi card of W 700?
When I am watching a movie via Media Player Classic, I would like to use my phone to operate as a remote. So it requires a program loaded, like Unified Remote or the like. Would it be possible to load it automatically and unload it when I exit the movie player?
I am running windows 8 professional on my home PC and running windows 8 home on my Venue 8 Pro. I downloaded the remote desktop app on my Venue and setup a connection to my home PC. It was very easy and worked (at least on my home network) Now the first time I tried to access the computer outside my home it says that it can't find the PC. Is the connection only good with me being on the home network? Do I have to install some third party VPN to access it?
I have a new Windows 8 pc and I need to connect to our website's remote SQL Server database. Everything works fine on our older Windows 7 pc's, but on Windows 8 I get a "The server was not found or was not accessible..." error.
Our hosting company has us use a VPN in order to connect to SQL Server and the VPN shows that it is connecting fine so that should not be causing this problem. We have a MS Access front end application that we use to view and edit data and I have tried using that to connect and I have also tried using SQL Server Management Studio 2012 and they both return the same above error. Both of these options work fine on my Windows 7 laptop.
We have Norton Internet Security installed on all of our pc's here and I also tried disabling that, but I still got the same above error so I don't think Norton is causing this problem either. I believe this must be something related to Windows 8.
I've been researching this online and I tried to ping our server and it worked from a Windows 7 pc right next to me and timed out on my Windows 8 pc. Unfortunately, this is not my area of expertise so I don't really know what that means.
I have 2 systems, 1 running Win7 (HP i5, quad-core, 8GB 2.5Ghz) and the other is running Win 8 (Acer AX series, AMD processor, quad-core, 8GB, 2.2Ghz) acting as my HTPC. How can I remotely access my Win 8 system (in living room) through my Win 7 PC in my computer room?
I've also read somewhere that using WOL feature on Win 8 is difficult. Is that true? How can I get through this issue?
New desktop computer. She will use it only to connect to her office using Remote Desktop Connection. All the software she will be using is on that server computer. Does the processor power make much of a difference, or is it using the processor on the server computer for most of the heavy lifting? I am looking at Lenovo desktops, wondering if the Intel I3 processor (6GB RAM) is good enough, or if an I5 (8GB RAM) will give better performance.
Potential client running Windows 8.0 (trying to avoid 8.1) Pavilion g6
Potential host running Win7 pro (fully updated) and the same desktop is the host of the wifi I'm using.
So far working: -Remote desktop from Windows 8 into win7 (wireless). -Folder sharing both ways (no homegroup, but direct sharing) (wireless).
Allthough, while uploading from Win7 into Windows 8 it occassionally looses connection, failing upload. However downloading same files from Windows 8 using same network works flawless. Also again using win7 sometimes doesn't find folders until using premade shortcuts. Maybe relevant, or not.
Problem: While trying to use Remote Desktop from Win7 desktop into Windows 8 Pavilion laptop I get that "...one of these reasons" error.
This while rightclicking on the Windows 8 pc in the win7 view of the network (choosing remote desktop option), so I know that the name is spelled right, it's in the network!!!
So far tried: Setting up Windows 8 to receive remote desktop as given here in these forums, allthough while on SystemProperties-->Remote-->Advanced I do NOT get the remote desktop menu view, only Remote Assistant settings with hour setup and such.
Tried to connect: -Both firewalls down, also client Avast down. -From the network with right mouse click. -Manually inputting the computer name into Remote Desktop
These PC's are not on the same WIFI, only same network. I Don't know how to get the network host into it's own wifi network. For example, I can't get my iPhone to connect wireless into iTunes because they are not connected into the same wifi, only Windows 8 is "connected" in the wifi, win7 is "merely" sending it, at least that's how I've understood the problem why I must upload/download stuff with manual wire connection with my phone.
I recently bought Dell Inspiron with i5 4th generation and preloaded Win 8 on it.
I upgraded it to Win 8.1. Am trying to login to my works station through IE11. am able to successfully login to web vpn website and when i try to give my IP and hit submit,
Java tries to load for a brief moment and am getting a message.
Error: click here for more details in a split window.
However am able to launch remote desktop using IE8 from my XP box. IE11 does not support.
1) make remote desktop work on IE11 or 2) in installing IE8 on Win 8.1
Stuff tried so for, for making it work:
-uninstalled IE11 and tried installing IE8 (failed) IE9 (it says already installed though it is not) -tried developer tool and changed browser mode to IE8 ( internet stopped working- unable to load any page from internet.)
I want to be able to remote control my moms PC. Both our PC's are Windows 8 pro. I used a pro android app called jump remote desktop from my android tablet which allowed me to control my moms PC but it logged her out of her PC so she got a blank display while I controlled it. If I use the integrated Windows 8 pro remote desktop would my mom also be logged out and get a blank screen? How about the chrome web browser remote desktop extension? Am I right this is the only way that I can control her PC while she can still see what I'm doing. Does chrome extension log her out of windows? Another problem with having her log out of windows is then the next time she turns on her PC she will be asked for windows password even though we have it setup to start windows without asking for sign in info. Is chrome extension best solution for me? Easy to setup?
I have a strange problem with Remote Desktop on Windows 8 RTM. I have two servers at home, with several virtual machine on them, and only uses Remote Desktop to connect to my servers and VM. I'm using Windows Server 2008 R2 on my servers and Windows 7 on some of my test VMs. I have no problems at all connecting to all my servers and VMs from my Windows 8 computer.
But I can not connect to any of my Windows 8 VMs. I have enabled Remote Desktop, I have added my user, I have set password in Windows 8, I have opened the firewall. But still, I can't logon from my Windows 8 Enterprise computer. It's only says that I use the wrong login info. But I use the right one.
Another strange thing is that I can connect from any other Windows 8 virtual machine to one of the Windows 8 VMs with Remote Desktop enabled. So I know all the settings is correct. And the issue is not on my Win8 VMs, but on my computer.
I have tested this issue on two computers now, one with Windows 8 Enterprise and one with Windows 8 Pro. I have found out that if I use a Microsoft account as user on my computers (not local account) I can't connect to any other Windows 8 computer. I can connect to Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7.
If I use a computer with a local account, I can connect to all types of Remote Desktop, also Windows 8 (all versions). I'm using Remote Desktop allot, and had plans for setting up a Windows 8 RDC VM on my server to use for my "desktop". But since I'm using Microsoft account on both my laptops, RDC do not work against Windows 8 RDC.
If I use a Microsoft account on my virtual machine, with the same logon info as my laptops, I can connect from my laptops also. But I do not want to use my e-mail and password on every virtual machine I setup, and I wont use local accounts on my laptops.
I'm looking for a Metro app that would allow me to remote control a music software program residing on the Win 8 desktop machine. I'm not looking for a music app that will stream music residing on the PC, just a remote control (via wifi home network), preferably for foobar2000 as it's my main player of choice. There are heaps of apps like this on the android platform and iOS and I'm guessing this is the first hurdle i've come across with the Windows Store.
I have a Windows 8 laptop. Windows 8 came pre-installed means it is Windows 8 Core/ OEM version, if that matters.
my other two laptops are Windows 7 laptop and Macbook Pro plus android handset.
sometimes all the three laptops are ON and operational and are connected through WiFi.
I have Remote Desktop Sharing enabled in my Windows 7 laptop I have installed third party RDP server in my Macbook Pro I have enabled Remote Desktop Sharing in Windows 8 laptop

Ping works just fine in both ways.
Now, One thing is clear. something is wrong in Windows 8 settings or something.
assuming that Remote Support is allowed in here... is there something I am missing in Windows 8 configuration?
