Preferred Solution: can cortana write an email or can i use to write with microsoft word?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: can cortana write an email or can i use to write with microsoft word?

Cortana is essentially a search tool. It's a bit of a toy (my personal opinion!) which attempts (sometimes) to give a slightly intelligent answer to a very limited range and format of questions, otherwise simply opening your browser and launching a search.

It can recognise speech as well.

It can also search your indexed files and folders.

It also gives some sometimes amusing answers set up by MS to silly questions.

So no, it's not a word processor, nor is it an email client.

If you're worried about the age of your office suite, I wouldn't particularly, unless there's a particular document type you need which it doesn't support. You can always use one of the free office suites, or one of the many free word processors if you prefer.

I almost never prepare text for emails in a separate word processor, unless it's to be attached as a document.

Hope that helps.

New dv6-7000 laptop (Win7 64-bit) has a problem I can't seem to solve:  When using any SDHC memory card you cannot write or erase files to the card.  You can read the files just fine, but you get a "Write Protected" error when trying to write or erase.   The card is, of course, not write protected, and can be written to in several other laptop/desktop SD drives that I've tried.   And I've tried different brands/sizes of SDHC cards.  Smaller capacity regular SD cards work just fine.   I tried removing this device and rebooting to reinstall the hardware, but no help. The Realtek SD Driver shows as version 6.1.7600.16385 in Device Manager properties, dated 6/20/06.  HP's support site shows a newer driver version 6.1.7601.29005 dated 2/24/12.  When I download and run sp56166.exe to update the driver, it seems to go through the update process successfully. But the driver still shows as the older version in Device Manager.  And, of course, the problem still exists.  Any ideas would be much appreciated!  Hard to believe that a new dv6 laptop can't properly write or erase files from High Capacity SDHC memory cards.   Thank you!

A:dv6-7000 can't write to SDHC cards ("write protected" error)

I understand high capacity SD cards return the message they are write protected in your system.

 

I take it the write protect switch is in the off/disable position on the card since they work in other systems.

 

What is the product number?

NOTE: Do NOT provide the serial number.

 

What brand and model is the SDHC card?

Hey all,

I am having an issue with a Western Digital 320Gb SataII drive that I purchased a little while back. The store I purchased it from insists that there is nothing wrong with the drive, but I think there has to be?
The first time it happened, I was downloading files from a P2P application. Failed to write to disk on the partition and something along the lines of G:/$mft kepy popping up(I guess to do with the boot table on the disk?). Figured that there was just an error, so I ran a chkdsk, but it didn't find anything. I rebooted the comp, and tried chkdsk again, but this time it couldn't access the partition. I had a couple more errors or problems with it (tried partition magic, but that wouldnt even open because the partition table was screwed up or something), so I decided to backup and then format the partition. Great, everything eventually worked again, and I copied everything back.

A couple of days later, I was copying some files over, and I had the same issue again, random popup saying something like "failed to write to disk - delayed write failed" and then my system crashed and I rebooted. Couldnt access the partition when I tried to chkdsk again. However, I still cannot find any bad sectors on it when I finally managed to get chkdsk working again (after a couple more reboots). It also took me three reboots/tries to get an image of the disk because it had problems reading it.

A:Failed to Write to Disk - Delayed Write

Well what you need to do is get a copy of Diskeeper. Go to www.diskeeper.com and get a trial version. Then you open that up, and analize the drive your having trouble with. Soon you can go into your options and run a program in there called Frag Shield or something like that. That will change your MTF size to a proper size (Cheoose Recommended settings) and the problems will go away. I had the same thing happen to my old 250 GB drive. But that should take care of everything.

I don't have any kind of burning software, and am forced to rely on Windows XP's built in Write-to-CD software. The problem is, even with a rewritable CD drive, re-writable DVD drive, and re-writable CD's and DVD's, any material I put on them with the built in Windows XP writing software, becomes write-protected, making it impossible not only to remove the material at a later date, but also to add anything to it. A CD can have over 675 mb of free space that is absolutely inaccessible because of this problem.

Is there any way to reformat these CD's or otherwise remove the write-protect on them? Some of the data on these CD's is not the kind I'd like anyone else to see, meaning that if they are absolutely absolutely ***ABSOLUTELY*** untouchable forever and ever and ever, I would be forced to destroy them altogether (likely breaking them in half or something) and dispose of them as trash (environmentally unsound or not) rather than submit them to a recycling center and risk some noseybody reading what's on them before recycling them.

A:Windows XP Write-to-CD: Write-Protect blues

All CD's are read-only and the contents cannot be changed. Some use packet-writing, but those only erase the previous version and write a new one, so they can't be changed, either. Space is less and gets used quickly.

The best way to have read/write access to data is to use an external USB drive or thumb drive.

It is best to stick with the standard ISO format. Save all your changes to a folder untill you are ready to burn the final copies to CD.

I'm trying to understand how fast a DVD burns, I mean in minutes it takes to burn data to the disk. What I want to burn to DVD is actually just data for storage, not movies.

Let's say I want to burn 4.7 Gigabytes of data to a DVD. The way I calculate it, if I burn at 2.4x, it should take about 27 minutes to do this, once the burn is started.

Is that about right?

I have a Gateway Computer running Windows 98. MY problem concerns a Philips 3610 Read/Write - Write CD. It has always been a problem i.e. - balky. I am using Adaptec Easy CD Creator 3.5 software. I can burn a CD but it is only readable on the Philips. I can't get it to initialize on the other CD drive on the computer or on the drive in my wife's Compaq laptop. I had to transfer a 5MEG file to her computer and finally had to install an old Zip Drive to do it. Sometimes (sometimes not) I get an error message after the CD is burned, but it reads OK in the parent drive.

Any thoughts will be appreciated.

Also, went to Philips website to try to find new drivers - It's lousy!

A:Philips 3610 Read/Write - Write CD

I trust you have the updates from Adaptec/Roxio.

Try the Sony CD Extreme software: http://sony.storagesupport.com/dlag...m/dsonyweb/cdrw/SonyCDExtreme1.3.390Setup.exe It should work fine with your burner. If you just select “data” in the opening wizard it will record session at once, close the session so it can be read and leave the disc open so you can add more stuff. Very robust software – make sure you don’t use a formatted CD. If that still doesn’t work I suggest trying some different blank media.

If you are recording to a formatted CD then you are packet writing and it can’t be read on any other computer until you install the reader for it from http://www.roxio.com

I don't know whether to put this in Hardware, or software, guys. Kinda fits both.

I am using an AMD 5000 Athlon X2, 2Gs memory, WinXP, Samsung writer, Nero. Have been using this setup for a couple of years....never any problem writing files to CDs.

I scanned a manual for a piece of stereo equipment recently. Wanted to store it in very good quality, so I saved it to my HD as bmp. files, from Photoshop. About 13 pages, saved to a folder. Approximately 430 Mgs. Every page opens fine on the computer. I decided to copy it to a CD for safekeeping. Nero said it copied, everything looks like it is there in Windows explorer. You can physically see that the files were written to the CD. However, when I tried to open any page in Win Explorer, or in any of my picture viewers, it refuses....the CD writer just sits there clicking like it is trying to open the file. Only way to stop it is to close Nero and force the writer to open the tray. I tried writing one page to a rewritable CD...same thing. So the first try wasn't just a bad CD.

Along about this time a friend asked for a copy. So, knowing something was odd, I tried sending a page to another of my screen names, through Email. AOL email goes through the motions of sending the file, but never comes up with the 'Mail Sent' message. Finally pops up a window saying AOL has encountered a problem and will shutdown, which it does.

Now I want to write something that handles bounces. Therefore, I need to learn how to use functions that get and process email, preferably in POP3 format.

PEAR provides some documentation for IMAP routines that can handle POP. But it looks like a lot of slogging through heavy-duty techy documentation.

Ever find your actual write speed is far less than the selected write speed?
For example I have a LG CD-RW 40x12x40
and use Memorex CD-R 700MB 48x multi speed disks.
I set it to burn regular music CD at 40x and it only writes at 16x
It seems drivers are far and in between and I have the latest so that rules that out...
Hardware getting run down and old maybe? It doesn't get used very often. Maybe easy CD creater is the weak link...
Any suggestions? comments?
 

A:Selected write speed vs. actual write speed

Does it write data at 40x?

It may be that your writing software is saving you from badly written audio CDs and automatically reduces write speed.

Most CD-RW drives fail to produce error free audio CDs when writing at full speeds.

So, I've been trying to fix this problem for months. I have two Maxtor hard drives on the primary IDE channel, one's a 120 Gb(master) and an 80Gb(Slave). Both of them write at about 1.8 Mb/sec and read at a normal rate. I've put a new ribbon cable in it, checked the jumpers, Windows says they're running in UDMA mode 6.

Both hard drives can't be bad, so I've ruled that out for now. I honestly don't remember when they first started running slow, but at least 6 months. I did a reformat about a year ago, and I think it was working well then, but that's a while ago and I just don't remember thinking it was slow at the time anyway.

My McAfee virusscan detected the [email protected] virus. I'm unable to do anything with it (delete, clean, quarantine). I get disk is write-protected error. I try to browse to the directory it's in and I can't see it. I've changed folder settings to show hidden and system files. I'm running XP and still can't see the folder it shows up in. I've run viruscan in normal and safe mode. Still can't do anything with it. I've included my Hijackthis log.
 

A:[email protected] and disk is write-protected error

You are using an old version of Hijack This. You are also running HJT from your Temporary Internet Files folder. It will not function properly from there and it cannot create and restore backups from there. You need to create a new folder in My Documents and name it Hijack This. Now Click here to download Hijack This again. Download it and click "Save". Save it to the Hijack This folder you just created. That way it can create and restore backups if needed. HJT will store the backups in the same location that it is run from.

Click on Hijackthis.exe to launch the program. Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log. Click "Save" to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.

Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" then Paste the log back here in a reply.

DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

I just started using microsoft mail for my emails. I used to use outlook and microsoft word would automatically correct spelling and capitalization errors as I typed. This does not seem to be happening now. I searched and it seems like microsoft mail is not using word to edit my emails. Does anyone know how to turn it on? If you cannot is there a way to have my emails automatically correct spelling and capitalizations? thanks for any help.

A:using microsoft word as email editor

Hello Blake,

Welcome to the forums.

I'm guessing you mean Windows Mail. Here is a tutorial on spell check: Windows Mail - Always Check Spelling

If you just want to turn on spell check, Tools/options/spelling tab. It will check spelling when you hit the send button.

Hope this helps.
Gary

Hello.

I was trying to configure Word 2000 to send email, but I can't seem to find the means to configure the bloody thing. I have tried help files, but wasn't much help.

Anybody plz?

Thanks.
 

A:Microsoft Word 2000 aka MS Word 2000 - Sending Email - Need Help Configuring

Word itself does not send (or receive) e-mail messages. You may configure Word to be your e-mail editor, but it still requires an e-mail program (such as MS Outlook) to send messages.

You can send e-mails from within Word by using File, Send To, Mail Recipient (or Mail Recipient as Attachment), but this still uses Outlook to do the sending and receiving.

Hi. Is there a way to preserve the formatting of a document when you perform an email merge without making the document an attachment? If not, is there a program that can do this? Will using Outlook instead of Outlook Express solve my problem?

I need a *.bat file. When launcehd it should delete My Documents folder and close immediatly after that :) I remember smth about deltree <directory> but i won't risk writing it myself :) Please help me!
Oh, did I mention - it should work with WinXP. If not, that's OK too. It should work with win98 then :)

A:Write a *.bat for me :)

Do you really want to delete the actual My Documents folder, or just the contents?

Here's a two line batch job that does it under W98.

DELTREE /Y "C:\My Documents"
EXIT

Note that with XP there is a copy of "My Documents" for each user, so you'd have to specify the complete path to the specific user in question on W2K or WXP. For "Sample User", for instance:

DELTREE /Y "C:\Documents and Settings\Sample User\My Documents"

Of course, you can also right click on "My Documents" and more it anyplace you like, if that has been done, you have to point the batch file to the correct location.

For most command utilities, if you type a /? after the command name, you'll get help. For instance:

c:\>deltree /?
Deletes a directory and all the subdirectories and files in it.

To delete one or more files and directories:
DELTREE [/Y] [drive:]path [[drive:]path[...]]

/Y Suppresses prompting to confirm you want to delete
the subdirectory.
[drive:]path Specifies the name of the directory you want to delete.

Note: Use DELTREE cautiously. Every file and subdirectory within the
specified directory will be deleted.

I have One-Write Plus and Windows XP and i'm an idiot when it comes to computers, well anyway I really need to use this program and its not opening.

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\AUTOEXEC.NT. The System file is not suitable for running MS_DOS and Microsoft Windows applications.

Some time ago I downloaded and tried to install a bunch of different linux distributions (hate the word distro) and nomatter what dist i tried to install I always kept getting a message from my bios telling me there's no OS or something on the drive and I was getting really annoyed by it so I tried installing fedora on my moms computer and I had the same problem, then I found some info on how to install the bootloader manually using the commandline and it worked on my mom's computer, but made no difference on my computer.
I can't remember but I think that it told me it couldn't find fedora (not sure, can't remember).

But in any case I don't really understand why none of the dists couldn't install the bootoader to the mbr, even thought I specified that I wanted one in the dists where I had the option.

Also, when trying to overwrite fedora with windows, it wouldn't put the "windows-nt-stuff" in the mbr. I had to do a fixmbr->fixboot to get it to work.
 

A:Can't write to mbr???

Check your BIOS for virus protection entry. Some BIOSes have options to protect the boot sector and prevent changes.

Otherwise, the HDD may need a low level wipe. Or "zeroing" out the drive. It may not be a true low level format, but if you go to the website of your hard drive manufacturer, they usually have tools for doing such things. Of course, this will erase all data.
