VR BOX iPhone 5S fitting help

Q: VR BOX iPhone 5S fitting help

Firstly, sorry if this is the wrong section. An administrator can move this thread somewhere appropriate if they wish. I'm new to this website and I'm desperately looking for help somewhere about my headset which I recently bought.

So, I just picked up a headset called the VR box. Everything is fine, but my iPhone 5S just won't fit. I've placed it inside the holder for the phone but the only thing to hold it that I can find it is a slider at the top, leaving lots more room where the phone is too small to fill causing gaps. These gaps keep making my phone slide out and fall causing a bad VR experience meaning I can't use the headset.

What can I do to fix this? I've tried using it while keeping it in place, but when I look in the headset the view is bad and I can see the top and bottom of my phone, I've tried refocusing it and adjusting the lenses but nothing seems to work.

Anyone able to help? Thanks.

I am running Win7/Pro x64. My System Spec is in my Profile.

I do not have iTunes installed on my desktop. I do have an iPhone 5, a hand-me-down from my son.

Yesterday the phone needed to be charged. I attached it to a USB port. I was asked by the phone if I trusted my desktop. I said yes. I was told that there were no new images on the phone to import, a fact I already knew. I've encountered this dialog before. It seems to be part of the procrustean Apple way of computing.

What troubles me is that a process started about the time I plugged in the phone. At a rate of 5-10 files/sec the 'modified' date was changed on over 3,500 jpg files on my data drive. I've not analyzed the order in which they were processed but suspect that it was A-Z on the file names and also on folder names.

Could this behavior result from iTunes running its 'sync' process? If so, is there anything I can do to prevent it from happening again?

If we have no Apple OS experts on this forum, does anyone know of an 'Apple forum' that is as respected as sevenforums is in the Windows world?

I just got the new iPhone 4S and I have a 3GS as my old phone with no way to transfer my contacts. I was told I could save a backup of my 3GS to itunes, then load the backup onto my 4S.

Well my 3GS won't backup, it keeps saying "iTunes could not backup the iphone because an error occurred" without any error code. I've wiped my old backup, I've cleared sync history. I'm using a PC with itunes with the latest itunes version 10.5.

What can I do to get my contacts over to the new phone?

So I have started modifying and getting new components for my PC, and I have a fanless ATI Radeon hd455x. When the card is plugged into the PCI-E slot (Which I Believe supports 16x, 8x, 4x and 1x) and use a DVI to VGA Adapter to attatch to a monitor (Hanns-G HU196D) nothing appears on the display. I believe my power supply is sufficient enough as I changed the standard 305w powersupply to a 450w powersupply. The PC itself was originally a DELL Optiplex 745 minitower.

I've recently put some more RAM into two systems.
The first system is a AMD 300mhz/ PCi S3 Virge Gfx card which had 32mb and has now been upgarded to 128mb. The board for this machine is a J-542B which is 100mhz . The RAM I put in was PC133! It is running fine and there doesn't seem to be any problems.
The question is: Should I have to assign this RAM in the BIOS or is it simply a case of put it in and away we go?

The second machine is an AMD 550mhz/ AGP Ati 8mb Gfx card. This has been upgraded to 224mb from 64mb. The board for this system is an ATX AL9 which again is a 100mhz board and the RAM I have put in is PC133. This machine is slower than the above system. It has Office 2000 on it (The 300mhz doesn't), would this software be enough to make it slower than the 300mhz system?

Okay, I'm feeling like an idiot right now. I ordered an ASUS P4S800D-X ATX mobo the other day. It arrived today, and I, jumping up and down like a little kid, proceeded to tear open the box. And here's what I found:

The stupid mobo doesn't fit the shell. That is, it doesn't fit the mounting holes, or the back plate.

I don't know if the case is ATX or micro or mini or whatever. I do know it's a mid-tower, but I've seen that some mids are compatible with ATX. I have no idea how to tell what's compatible, just by looking at the dull-gray metal.

My questions--for there are two:

1. Other than looking for 'ATX', is there something I need to know about to make sure the mobo and case are compatible?

2. While I'm trying to figure out what to do next, is there some way to rig up a mount for the mobo so I can test it?

Hi Gang.

I've just purchased a Pioneer DVR-107D DVD Burner. I wish to keep my existing CD Burner as well. The burner came with instructions on how to fit it but not the wiring of the damn thing.

When both my burners are connected the computer refuses to load up to the windows page.

But with one disconnected it works fine.

Could someone point me in the right way for a web site that may help? Or if anyone on here could help me out?

Is it to do with the Bios set up? Thought i'd better ask before messing around with it.

Hello again..

I've been working for the last couple of weeks transfering some of my VHS tapes to DVD. The most I've been able to fit on a 4.7 GB DVD is about 1 hour and 10-15 minutes. The image is not as clear as the original VHS when playing thru the TV. The DVD says it will hold "120 minutes of video".

What am I missing in the conversion from analog to MPEG that causes the file to be too large to fit on 1 DVD? Am I correct in using the 720 x 480 DVD MPEG setting? Is that overkill for VHS quality and perhaps causing some of the "pixelation"?

I'm using an ATI all-in-wonder 7500 with a 1.6GHz P-4 processor and a Memorex DVD burner.

The ATI came with U-lead Video Studio 5.0 which works very well for editing.

The Memorex came with PowerDVD, MyDVD, ArcSoft ShowBiz, and Nero. The ShowBiz software is the only program that allows me to transfer the edited MPEG to DVD. No matter what I load into MyDVD, it says the file is too big.

If anyone can help me with suggestions on what settings I could change to get a 2 hour VHS to fit on a 2 hour (4.7BG) DVD, I would appreciate it.

I've done a lot of looking on other sites, but have yet to find the answers.
Thanks in advance for your help...

Ok, I have six 3.5" bays in my computer and five 5.25" bays. I have 6 HDD's currently and am looking at adding more. I know there are simple metal holders that will hold one 3.5" disk in one 5.25" slot, and that there are things like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817332011 which hold five 3.5" drives in three 5.25" slots. However, I don't want to pay 120$ and i dont need all the hotswap/power buttons/etc. (though a fan would be nice). SO the question is this, is there a plain metal rack, at a resonable cost, that will hold 5 HDD's in three 5.25" (possibly with a fan)?

Can anyone explain in clear language how do I replace a cd drive with a dvd drive, will the existing cables do? Is it a job that a newcomer like me should tackle. I only have room for one drive. Thanking you in anticipation, aberhosan

A:fitting a dvd drive


You can do it easily.

In Simple Language here are the steps.

Take off both sides of your case. Normally there are screws on the back of the case. Sometimes they can be hidden by a removable panel on the front though.

Find your cd drive, it is held in place by 4 screws normally.

Remove those screws, pull the 2-3 connectors out of the back of the cd drive.

Insert DVD drive, plugging in wires exactly where they were on cd drive, if its a thin one with a black or white connector that came from the cd drive doesn't fit in the dvd drive then dont' worry, its just the audio for cds, XP doesn't even need it.

Replace the screws.

Replace the side panels of the case

Boot up computer.


Edit: Oh I forgot, Check the jumpers on the new DVD drive. You need to set it to Master. You will see a plastic thing covering 2 pins on the back of the drive. Normally there is a diagram on the drive showing you where the jumpers go for certain settings, Typically MA is master SL is Slave and CS is Cable Select. Put the plastic thing over the 2 that correspond to MA. It is likely on that one or CS initially.

You can actually leave it on CS if its on that one, but I myself have never used any drives on CS.

I'm rebuilding an old PC from bits and have found a problem I didn't know could exist.
I fitted an Intel LGA1155 to an ASUS P8Z77-V LX m/b. I went to fit an INTEL cooler fan assy to the m/b and could not get the holes on the m/b to line up with he Intel fan probes.
I found another, smaller, fan and had the same problem.

Surely this fitting is a standard and all m/b will support all sizes and specifications of Intel fans.

Or is it me?

A:Fitting Video On DVD

You have to adjust the bitrate the bitrate calculator loacated here: http://www.videohelp.com/calc.htm tells me you need a bitrate of 2400 to fit on a 4.7gb disc.

Trouble with that is 2400 isn't sufficent for 720x480 so you also need to adjust the resolution to 352x480. Otherwise tyou're going to get macroblocking.

If you tell me the properties of the original video I can elaborate a little more. What's the resolution, filetype etc.

A:Fitting SSD 3 to old Mobo

The motherboard has SATA 3Gb/s ports so while it will limit the maximum potential read/write speeds, to about half, it will still be massively faster than a mechanical drive.

You could get a PCI-Express SATA 6Gb/s add-on card to run the SSD, you just need to be sure it's a card that supports booting from and that the motherboard can be set to boot of an add-on card which I think it does. Most of the cards don't seem to give performance equal to a motherboard with built in SATA 6Gb/s though.

I am new to this forum and hope it can be helpfull...I have a few questions

I am wondering if Frame Relay and ATM are only for businesses who need some virtual circuit and am i right in thinking that they would either use T1/E1 or Fiber Ethernet carriers for this?

Or is Frame Relay and ATM used in all types on WAN technologies, so for example my DSL or cable modem is connected to some multiplexer and after that it will use Frame Relay or ATM using a T1/E1 carrier...and after that probably a T3/E3 carrier and probably after that on the internet backbone SONET using an OC? Also since SONET is protocol neutral, SONET would still use either Frame Relay or ATM or MPLS?

Is it the likes of Frame Relay and ATM that will get replaced by MPLS.

The thing is i know how all these technologies work but im trying to get my head around how they all fit together?

If anyone can help me out to give me an insight of how these technologies fit together...maybe a diagram or link to a good web page?

I'm getting around to building my own computer, and need some help with processors ans and motherboards.

I found a nice Soyo ATX motherboard, and I need to know if the processor I found will fit it. The motherboard says it supports AMD Athlon? 64 socket 754 processors, and what I found doesn't say anything about 64 socket or 754. The processor I found is an AMD Athlon? XP Processor 2800+, and in the specifications, it says it's socket A. Is that the same thing? They're both from the same website.

Please help me, and here's a reference to the items.

CPU: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage...t&productCategoryId=cat01070&id=1058188520438

No, that AMD socket A cpu wont fit in a socket 754 mobo.

Only the Athlon 64`s socket 754, and some AMD socket 754 semprons will fit in a 754 mobo.

Make sure that when you order the cpu, you get one that is socket 754.

Or of course you could go and buy the newer socket 939 mobo and Athlon64 939 cpu.

  I am currently considering updating my computer by installing a gtx 1050ti single fan gpu. Everything is stock on my computer except for the gt730 discreet gpu (which i plan to remove to install the new gpu). My 2 concerns at this point is power consumption and actual physical size. Measured the clearence for the gpu at about 6inches eyeballing it which is why im opting for the single fan which is smaller than the standard sitting at around 5.7inches. Also read about the card fitting into a 500-223w which seems to be the intel version of my computer. If anyone could tell me definitively if it will physically fit that would be much appreciated.   Looking at multiple power consumption calculators the range seems to be 250-350w running range. Building an almost identical computer on pcpartpicker.com has it running around at 237w (with the graphics card already in the build).  under load id expect it to spike to around 289w  which is slightly under the stock 300w psu which is living a bit more dangerously than i would like ,so im looking for reccomendations for a "better" psu to protect the parts of the computer from the laws of if something can go wrong it will.

I have a 'Crucial' brand SSD on it's way. I note the manufacturers advice to touch (ground) myself with the pc prior to handling the SSD.

I see on Amazon that they advertise metal, plastic and aluminium 'platforms' or mounting brackets to install the SSD onto. These are usually to mount in a HDD bay.

I have taken apart an old floppy drive and by drilling 4x holes in the sturdy floppy drive metal base plate, I could (preferably would), mount my SSD in the old floppy drive slot using this metal base.

So, I would be grateful if anyone could please clarify whether it is (or isn') ok to do this, because the SSD would of course be 'grounded' to the pc casing. Is that ok? i.e. it won't damage the SSD please?

Also, I read something in a closed thread about enabling AHCI to use an SSD. I don't know at the mo if mine is enabled, but all being well, I will enable it in the BIOS if it exists (it's not a new machine, lol).

My question re that is: assuming I enable AHCI, can I stil use a normal sata HDD as a second drive? If so will it be affected in any way by AHCI?

I have read about getting the SSD tweak utility to help out.

Thanking everyone in anticipation of some clarification on the above points please. Plus of course, any other tips that members may like to inform me of.

Many thanks,
