Dvd Drive Problem

22 February 2009 - 03:41 pm

I have recently build a new PC and everything had been going fine. Just recently my Dvd drive has been behaving oddly, the Dvd drive is from the old PC. It is a Toshiba/Samsung model number TS-H552D. The drive was working ok in the old machine.
The problem is the when I intalling certain games I get a crc error or a data.cab error. This happens when I use downloaded games and shop brought games, even dragging the files off the disc gives the same error. These discs works ok on other machines.
The strange thing is that Windows (cough version ) installed with no problems and some other games installed with no problems. The games in Question are Burnout Paradise, Fall Out 3, Far Cry and Rollercoaster Tycoon 2. These have been verified as working on other PC's.
I have a new Hard Drive installed, the same problem happened on the old Hard Drive. I have a second Toshiba/Samsung Dvd Drive (model TS-H652M) and same thing happened on the drive.
Can anyone shed any light on the problem?
Thanks

Broadband speed issues

08 November 2008 - 09:37 am

I am currently getting very very low speeds. I get nearly 7000 kbps around 7 am in the morning and by 10 am the speeds have dropped drastically. Here are my speed test results from yesterday:

07:15 am 6975 kpbs
11:00 am 8.6 kbps
12:00 am 8.2 kbps
13:33 pm 3.70 kpbs
14:25 pm 14.1 kbps

Typically after 5pm I have been getting between 4 and 11 kbps. This has been going a few weeks. I have contacted my ISP and I was asked a few basic things like checking the wire and changing the broadband filter, I was also asked if I was using a anti virus. I was asked to give 6 speed readings took at different times of the day. The last test I was asked to perform was a test under CMD - it was a tracert test. I was told to do a test 3 times and a engineer would call back - that was 2 days ago and they still haven't called back, I ended up calling them yesterday to chase up the engineer and was promised a call back yeasterday and still nothing.

I am currently with Pipex/Tiscali and I can get up to 8 meg from my exchange (across the road from me).

I am using a Belkin Wireless router so other pc's in the house can use the internet, my Belikin has a password on it that other users in the house have to type in to access the net.

At the moment I am ver fraustrated and peed off - I am paying for always on broadband and I am getting a lot less then dial up speed - I do not expect full speed all the time but I am sure that I should get more than 3.7 kbps.

Has any one got any Ideas what the problem might be.

I am looking at moving to sky if I can sort the speed out with Pipex/Tiscali.

I am not a heavy broadband user but I do have 4 PC's connected to the net after 6pm. I have not had any speed issues with my current ISP before until this happened, they said that they are aware of speed problems affecting a lot of their customers and at the moment they don't seem to be in a hurry to sort it out.

Ghost Buster (BWB)

I was having a look through the roms files supplied by Treasure Island (Thanks for these Treasure Island). I spotted a rom called Ghost Busters 2p Sunset.bin.

Is this the rom for Ghost Buster by BWB?
