A few things that might help get those questions answered faster.
Be specific when you are talking about something - "my mp3 player is broken HALP!?"
- What kind of mp3 player, (brand and model)
- What isn't is doing now that it was before (the reason it is "broken")
- What were you doing to it last, right before it broke.. Did you maybe drop it?.. get it a little wet? try to flash the firmware?!

These all help in determining what can be done.
These rules do not just apply to MP3 players.
Just be as specific as possible and don’t leave stuff out, we want to be helpful here, try not to make it a scavenger hunt for clues!
These same rules apply for other situations like “I got a new motherboard and now my computer doesn’t post!”
-old motherboard model
-new motherboard model
-ram (speed)
and any other component you might have in there (most of the other stuff usually won’t matter but list what you know.

I don't know if it's still the case, but back when I was taught electronics they covered house wiring as part of the curriculum. I'm going to guess they don't do it anymore, because everyone younger seems shocked that a geek like me knows house wiring...

Hey, quick question, which is a smarter buy?NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Ti 3GB GDDR5 or NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 - 2GB Dual cards?

Anonymous 14/04/20(Sun)23:50 No. 21097 ID: e9ee54

I always opt for a single faster card.

Hello, /halp/
I bought a refurbished Nintendo DS and well, look at the GIF attached. I can't fucking tap the right button for shit. It's not just the cheat screen, because earlier I tried looking through some CG in a game, tapped the bottom left one and got the top right instead. I tried recalibrating and it works just fine, PictoChat responds fine too so I don't know what the fuck is wrong. Do you think it could be my old R4 or was it just refurbished shittely?

Installed wood? If not go for it. GBAtemp should have the most up to date shit there.

Anonymous 14/04/20(Sun)11:59 No. 21095 ID: 1b2b61

Nope, I've got kernel 1.18 and it worked for me before. Since there were no answers, I bought a R4 that should arrive after Easter.

I made an 910mb encrypted .rar archive roughly 4 years ago, so probably version 3.90, gave it a file name to serve as a reminder to the password, and of course promptly forgot it.

I'm in the process of brute forcing it, but unless I get stupidly lucky I won't be getting access anytime soon.

Is there anything that I could do that would expedite the process?

Anonymous 14/03/13(Thu)06:16 No. 21019 ID: e9ee54

You could always try a different cracker. There's quite a wide range of performance.

I don't remember what I used last time, but I remember I had to download it its source and compile it by hand since they didn't provide a prebuilt executable optimized for my CPU.

It looks like this crazy bastard wrote his tool to run on a GPU, if you have access to a decent GPU this could be a faster option:

jack the ripper could probably do it.. but haven't cracked archive in many years so there could be something better.

now you know that passwording a rar is asinine and you got what you deserve

visual boy advance question

i'm trying to play pokemon ruby but when I load it, the screen is white and won't run. i've tried sapphire and emerald too and same problem. I tried googling for answers but none of them worked.

Anonymous 14/04/17(Thu)04:39 No. 21090 ID: 75756b

It's caused by issues with the 'internal clock' and savefile.

Switch the internal flash from 64K to 128K then reset.
Options>Emulator>Save Type>Flash128KB

Should do the trick, if not you'll need to search out a pre-existing save game file and save state, load the game with the save game file in the right place then load the save-state to circumvent the bug. Depending on what version you use you might be forced to boot using the save-state every time.

Hello, /halp/
I've got an A-DATA 750GB DashDrive Durable HD710 and it works weird with NTFS when it comes to copying/moving files from my hard drive to the external drive. The larger files SEEM to send very fast, but then they freeze near the end of completion, at about 90% or something. They eventually unfeeze and go where they were meant to go, but I'm just wondering what the fuck? They work fine the other way around (copying/moving from external drive to hard drive)
Everything works fine under exFAT but I can't defragment or schedule disc check.
I didn't give my PC details because I tried it with another PC that has a different OS.

that's sometimes a sign of fragmentation and a drive near capacity
it copies the early portion into free contiguous areas, then it tries to fit the rest of the file into thousands of 1KB gaps whereever it can find them on the drive
if you have a graphical defrag like XP's it can tell you how fragmented it all is.

anti-virus can do that too (scan the file prior to completion of write)

Anonymous 14/04/16(Wed)18:57 No. 21086 ID: 4947a5

Oh well, I guess I'll just stick with exFAT. Thanks for your help though.

They've supported exFAT defragmentation since Vista days.

I'm trying to connect a wiimote to an adroid tablet (version 4.2.2) but it requires a PIN and the wiimote doesn't have one. I've googled it and all answers seem to be that it's impossible. but, is there anyway to create a pin for the wiimote so it will work?

The developers of the utilities that work under 4.1.2 and have said they're going to update them for the new stack... but it's been a while.

Apparently if you can change the MAC address of your BT interface to 30:30:30:30:30:30 you can use the PIN 000000 and it'll connect under 4.2 and up, but without the utilities to configure buttons, dpad, etc. people are claiming it's unusuable (though about half of them are claiming it doesn't work because the lights constantly flash, which is normal for a non-Wii connection).

Anonymous 14/04/11(Fri)11:00 No. 21078 ID: c29d11

can you use a generic gamepad to connect to an android device if it has a PIN?

Anonymous 14/04/13(Sun)04:24 No. 21079 ID: e9ee54

You should.

The reason the Wiimote doesn't work is because it's not technically supposed to work with third party systems, but developers had written apps to take care of compatibility issues.

Might do, depends on your Router, what model is it?
One of us could do a probe to see if your line/ISP supports Dynamic or if it's static only.

Go to:

Post your:
Current IP
Proxy Status
ISP (this will likely be different to who you're contracted to)

Don't bother doing an IP-lookup it won't be of use unless you want some script-kiddie trying to DDOS you.

Anonymous 14/04/10(Thu)06:03 No. 21076 ID: 9a2f15

my router does is already DHCP enabling
and my ISP is cox communication which supports dynamic IP
for some reason although even when I have my TCP/IP changed to obtain an IP and obtain DNS automatically my DHCP is still not enabled

Anonymous 14/04/10(Thu)07:10 No. 21077 ID: e9ee54

>my router does is already DHCP enabling
Does the IP address assigned to your router's WAN Port begin with 192.168, 10., 172., or 169.?

If it does, your router is not getting a public IP address, and nothing you do on the router matters.

If the IP address assigned to the router's WAN port matches the IP address listed on whatismyip.com, then you can try this:
1) Perform a DHCP release on your router's WAN port. This means releasing the DHCP address assigned to the WAN port, not the DHCP address assigned to your computer. If you don't know what this means, then reply with the make & model of your router and maybe someone will be kind enough to read the manual for you and tell you how to do it.
2) Disconnect the ethernet cable connecting the cable modem to the router
3) Remove power from the cable modem. If it has a battery back up (e.g. integrated phone) then remove the battery from the cable modem too.
4) Wait 5 minutes.
5) Reconnect the cable modem to power. If it has a battery backup, reinstall the battery first, then connect it to power.
6) Wait for the cable modem to boot, usually takes a few minutes
7) Change the MAC address assigned to your router's WAN port.
8) Reconnect the router to the cable modem

Glass desks, do you guys think they're any good? Surely they'd shatter when you lean on them right? I'm just so sick of these fucking chipboard desks.

Thanks for the answer anons. To answer 21061 I do want to get something high quality but I shift around a lot so I like to keep things lightweight to save on space and it sucks seeing expensive stuff gets scuffed during shifting.

There are two things about the observation of mice and interacting with glass surfaces. I have had a glass (tempered) desk for the past four or so years, and I like it, but I have found that quite a few quality mice will actually work on the bare glass, and some will even advertise that capability. Also, there are some glass desks that advertise having "optical mouse friendly" glass if I remember correctly. And a final word on the durability of the tables, like I said, I've had my desk for four years, heavy daily use. But just the other day, it had it's greatest test. My idiot friend threw my keys onto my desk, and they have a carbide tipped blade sharpening tool that can be used to cut and shatter tempered glass. Well, it ended up dinging the glass (and I ended up "dinging" my idiot friend for giving me a heart atack) but still did not shatter into those million tiny freaking pieces. So yeah, glass desks are pretty cool.

If they can take the force of a BBW porn star being pounded harder than an inmate at Guantanamo, I'm sure they can take the weight of you and a computer without much of an issue.

Hello, /halp/
What are the differences between USA and Europe game releases for PSP and NDS?

Anonymous 14/04/09(Wed)10:26 No. 21068 ID: e9ee54

Not much. Multiplayer is locked to the region the game is from.

Note that some DSi and most if not all 3DS titles are region locked.
