Why do I have such problems taking material on CD-RW between machines? I have CDburn on my main machine which has a CD-RW.
I find that discs are not readable on my second RPC, or by VA5000 on a Win2k laptop. However, the same disc is readable on the machine that wrote it - and can be read by PCs, inculding the Win2k side of the aformentioned laptop.
What settings should I use for ISO 9660 naming options and for Extensions? -- andrew.mcmullon@tesco.net

Hello everyone. I have a question about catching a drag and drop event. Although I have programmed in C for a while, I am just learning about WIMP programming (using Desklib). I have set up a simple window and got stuff inside it mostly working. However, I have a file icon and would like to have a handler which is called when a file is dropped onto that icon. The problem is that I can not find a way of doing it - I have used event_claim and then event_ANY for that icon, but no joy for actually d.... read more

My Laser Direct printer is on its last legs and I'm looking at a network HP Laser with a Duplex facility. Also the Colour HP Deskjet 6127 looks very good as I use one at Work. Near silent, good quality text, reasonable speed and it is duplexed and networked as standard.
Does !Printers support this kind of printing? Any ideas anyone? -- Stuart Halliday The Acorn Cybervillage http://acorn.cybervillage.co.uk/ Support us - http://www.cafepress.com/AcornCV/ Remove 'takeoutthisbit' to r.... read more

Hi All, A slightly odd message appeared on my screen when I turned on my VRPC this morning: File '...SpamStamp.Backup' is a file so I started delving around looking for missing emails but haven't been able to work out the whole sequence from download to an email appearing in Messenger.
I also received a debatch failed message from Messenger :( I did succeed in finding a mail which I thought I'd never received back in October though! I wonder if anyone could outline the process fo.... read more

Whilst reading a thread, on broadband I think, I became side-tracked with curiosity when I read of ZFC chat on argonet. It would seem that, in a moment of semi-alertness, I must have subscribed - for I now have 176 more missives to peruse ontop of those from the acorn ng's.
I can't cope.
How do I unsubscribe from ZFC chat? -- Chris. Using British Iyonix and RISCOS! Managers love work! (They'd better; they have to watch it all day.)

Hi All: I had a Netopia router for the ISDN line - worked fine: accessing websites was very fast, and Google, for instance, would start to load after a very few seconds. Sadly, it died.
Now I have a Cisco 800 series router to replace it.
This works fine //once a channel has been opened// (indicated by the orange 'CH1' LED lighting up - green LEDs of 'OK', 'LINE' and 'LAN' are always lit).
On many/most occasions, after I try to initiate some web activity like askin.... read more

I have been happily using Firefox v5 - the Christmas day release version.
But today for reasons best known to itself when I now double click on it all I get is a task window with a revolving list of what looks like commmands - this just revolves till you press alt-break.
I haven't knowingly changed anything that should cause this, can anyone suggest what I may have unknowingly done and what I may do to correct it.
I have tried re-downloading Firefox and also checked the elfloader and t.... read more

I have 3 ANT NICs for RiscPC, 2 of them have EtherB v4.23 and work fine with RISC OS v4.02 to v4.39. The third has AUN Discless Boot RiscPC600 v1.27 and does various nasties which I don't choose to investigate :-( Can anyone tell me where I might be able to get the third card's ROM replaced so it matches the other 2. I'm sure there was a firm that took over RISC OS networking from ANT Ltd but I can't find any link to it.

I downloaded a pdf from the MS Society website for S(WMBO)+(WILAC)to read: http://www.mssocietyalerts.org.uk/cgi-bin/viewoffer.cgi/775109 and loaded it into RiScript 5 to print it. It printed only the MS Society logo at the top of the page, the rest of the page was blank; !PDF printed it without problem.
Is this likely to be a problem with me, !Printers, RiScript or the pdf file? Any ideas would be welcome! With best wishes, Peter.
