Re: MP3 player not recognized

Oddly enough this is what seems to be happening. The darn thing has been corrupted and is reverting to the charge only setting even though I reset it manually. Did a factory reset and that seems to have fixed it.

MP3 player not recognized (SOLVED)

I had been able until now to load my humble little mp3 player by dropping, dragging, and directly downloading to its internal storage. But all of a sudden I can't do anything because even though it's connected by USB to my machine (I know because it's getting a charge...), and it doesn't get listed ...

It then goes on to ask where my CDROM drive is mounted, and every place it suggests fails. My System Info lists where it ought to be, but when I paste the location in where ...

Re: Installing a win95 game (wine?)

Further details: PlayOnLinux and WINEand the Win95 app do not see the CD ROM drive or anything on it, and there seems to be no way to add the drive or access it in any way.

Installing a win95 game (wine?)/ (ABANDONED)

I'm told that one can install and play Windows games using WINE. How do you do that? I see the game I have listed in PlayOnLinux, but it will not access the CD ROM in my drive. What am I doing wrong? (Be gentle!)

Cinnamon keeps crashing in 19, and I have narrowed it down to the video driver. It crashes outright using the recommended driver for my NVIDIA 340, and only runs in software rendering mode using the open source Xorg driver. What should I do? There used to be more driver selections, but now there's o...

Going into the BIOS, there seems to be no other boot option than the hard drive, and nothing to activate a USB boot option. What do I do now?
