Chrome doesn't use Windows as the operating system.  Therefore, definitely not.

Re: A problem with an SD card in a VR Trek

Kay Malmquist
 

Ok, I can find command prompt, but it has been a long while since I have used it.  You said to type:
chkdsk /f /r e:
I totally get the chkdsk, which is to check disk but now to understand the rest.since my drive is the E drive, I assume that I change the /f to, /e?  Then what is the /r e: for?  And lastly, do I leave all the spaces in there as you have them?  Thanks for any help.

Yes, you can.  However, I haven’t seen XP in so long that I can’t remember how to get to the command prompt.  I seem to remember that it is located under accessories.  Maybe go to the start menu, go to all programs, and I think accessories was near the bottom of the list.  Once you get to the command prompt though, you can type chkdsk /f /r e: or whatever your card’s drive letter is, and chkdsk will try to find and repair bad/corrupt sectors on the card.  It seems to be worth a shot anyhow.

Good morning Kay.  I had an SD card do that to me about a month ago.  My computer wouldn’t let me open it, and I couldn’t get JAWS to read the actual volume label.  I was able to get at my documents and make the card work again with the repair functionality of chkdsk under Windows 10.  First, make sure that you know the drive letter of your card; for example, f:.  Do Windows key X, then arrow down to Windows Power Shell Admin, or instead hit the letter A.  A command prompt will open.  Type chkdsk /f /r f: and hit enter.  I don’t think it can do any harm, and it may work.  It takes a while to do its thing.

Hello,

I added a couple of .docx to the text files folder of a card that I have been using for quite some time.  Now when I try to put it in my VRTrek,I get a media 3 error.  So I tried another card and all is fine with that.  So, I decided to put it back in to my computer and the disc name does not come up on the list of drives.  It just says the drive name.  When I press enter on it, I am asked if I want to reformat?  Ok, if it is corrupted is their any way to salvage what is on there?  I have a ton of notes that I really need for classes and things like that.  I have a san disc utility but I don't think that does any salvage functions.  any thoughts?  I have at least 30 GB of books and other things.  Please if you have any ideas, let me know.

Chromebooks have their own screen reader. It’s called chromevox. To launch it, hold the control and the alt key, then press the letter z. You can run chromevox from the initial set-up screen. The set up of the chromebook with chromevox is accessible.

converting .html files from my stream to .txt files

Keith S
 

Hello,
 
Anyone know how to convert the .html files my VR stream saves wikkapedia nd wictionary look-ups  as on the stream.  I move them to the external SD card, but my computer takes forever to open the files.  would be nice to just review them as .txt files.
 
Would like something to be able to batch convert the files as well, instead of simply opening a file, copy and pasting the info onto a wordpad or notepad document and then saving it.
 
Thanks
 
Keith

1. Open up your Run Dialogue by using the Windows key+R keystroke.
2. Type exactly (what is below) and press Enter
mmsys.cpl
3. This should honestly take you to your Playback Tab where your various
speakers are available.
4. So you will want to ControlTab once to the RecordingTab where you will
adjust your microphone accordingly and OK it when finished.

Good Morning,

I run Win 7 and System Access.

I sometimes need to adjust the mic volume. I open System Volume and tab to
the Mic volume. I set it to where I need it.

Unfortunately there is no Apply button or OK. This means that when I shut
down and restart my computer, the mic volume is what it had been before I
changed it in the previous session.

How can I keep this from happening?

Thank you very much.
