Customer Question
I have a Memorex*****and...

I have a Memorex*****and have lost the cd for the install. I no longer have a dvd/cd player in my laptop, but need to use the external drive, which does not play with windows media player. Can I get an exe file by email so that I can use the drive? I'll have to throw it out if that's not possible. thanks.Leslie

Technician's Assistant: Who makes your speaker or sound system?

It's part of an Epson projector system

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your sound system?

Nothing so far, I'm trying to get the ext drive to play with my dell laptop, so we have video. I use Media player from there, and it doesn't see the external drive.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Video Expert to know before I connect you?

I don't think so

Does anything happen at all when you power on the external drive, and then plug the usb cord from the drive into your computer? Make sure to turn up the volume on the computer. Listen for any sounds , and look towards the lower right corner for any action on the screen. Let me know what you see or hear.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
