still can't get youtube.com to work

Hi everyone, I still have had trouble getting youtube.com to work in terms
of playing the audio to videos.  When I first found the page and would
click on something I had found it was no problem, but now something may
come up with no sound.

accessible hd or solid state recorders?

hello list,
does anyone know of any accessible hard disk or solid state recorders?
am preferably looking for something at least reasonably portable, but not microscopic, that will record stereo high quality audio, and take external mics. it should be able to record at least 4 hours of high quality stereo audio, and be able to download it to a computer with out having to send it in real time via the sound card. if possible, I would prefer something with manual record levels, and would like to be able to tell for certain if the machine is actually recording, paused or what ever, and I am totally blind. I am not that bothered about whether or not I can edit on the machine, but it would be a bonus if that side of it was accessible as well.
thanks in advance for any help received on this.

scheduled tasks on systems with no password


Hi all,

I am trying to schedule a task which will run a backup of my hard drive.  Task manager seems to be insisting on the account having a password.  My system has no password.  does anyone know if there is a way around this?

Thanks.

Windows Media Problems

I am having problems with Windows Media.  I have been trying to get my player to work, but each time I hit enter on it to play something, it says default view.  I have even tried to remove it, but it isn't in my add or remove programs.  I  have tried to download an earlier version, but it says that a later update is on my computer.  It will not let me download a later version, because it says that my computer has to be validated.  I tried to validate, and I got the message that my computer couldn't be validated.  Can some one please help me with this problem.  I cannot do anything at all with Windows Media Player.

Skype Problem, Need Help

Hello All:

I'm having a problem with Skype and I think this might be my own doing
to some degree as I was messing around with the audio settings on my
computer.  .  I need help fixing it.

I'm running Skype Version 3.0 on my desktop PC at home.  When I use the
Skype Call Testing Service, I very very faintly hear my voice when
recording the test message.  I cannot get the volume of my voice up to
an acceptable level where I can hear it; I only hear it faintly when I
turn my speakers up real loud.  Here are the settings I am using:

Windows XP SP2 on a Dell system running Window-Eyes Version 6.0.  I have
Skype set files installed.

In playback control under audio settings, I have playback control volume
set to 250, Wave/MP3 volune set to 0 (which is loudest), and microphone
muted.  I've also tried it with the playback microphone volume unmuted.

In record control, I have the microphone volume set to 0, highest it
will go.  I have the first check box after microphone volume selected,
the one I get to when tabbing away from Microphone Volume.

Anyone have any suggestions or thoughts as to what might be going on?

Thanks,
