A good OEM (yes, they exist) will include the right drivers, utilities, and hotfixes for your system to ensure that every feature on it works correctly.

I had to download and install two updates from Sony (under the Windows Vista category) to enable the flash memory card slot and the Firmware Extension Parser, labeled as unknown devices Choosing this option also gave me the freedom to reformat the hard disk and blow away the unnecessary recovery partition. Ah ok. Strange but true.

If you happen to know why my hard drive runs non-stop, please advise. I rejected the first option, which was to upgrade this machine from Windows XP Professional to Windows Vista Business and then to Windows 7 Professional.

It was working perfectly untill I installed the following using Windows Update: Update for Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 (KB910393) Windows Media Connect 2.0 (KB909993) Microsoft Base Smart Card Cryptographic Privacy Policy | Cookies | Ad Choice | Advertise | Terms of Use | Mobile User Agreement Visit other CBS Interactive sites: Select SiteCBS CaresCBS FilmsCBS RadioCBS.comCBSInteractiveCBSNews.comCBSSports.comChowhoundCNETCollege NetworksGameSpotLast.fmMaxPrepsMetacritic.comMoneywatchmySimonRadio.comSearch.comShopper.comShowtimeTechRepublicThe InsiderTV.comUrbanBaby.comZDNet Topics All After careful consideration, I finally decided to go ahead with the upgrade, taking careful notes and snapping lots of screen shots along the way. But you are a lifesaver.

I have noticed that other references to this "latest" release seemed to reference successful installations on XP Pro.   I guess I will just have to live with the problem a while longer.

Thanks. KB910393 is a Media Player hotfix, not a Media Center one, so I wasn't involved in creating it like I was for the Media Center hotfixes like KB908250. The PCmover program has been around for a few years, but it needed a major rewrite for Windows 7. The line starts with C:\documents etc.

This is quite a nuisance as you can imagine, and I was wondering if you have any feedback on how I can go about finding a resolution. I had a chance to think about this question twice over the weekend.

Or why isn't it in some 5 or less minute video?Bob Flag Permalink This was helpful (1) Collapse - now I'm really confused! In broad strokes, the process works like this: After installing PCmover, you run the Upgrade Assistant on the PC running Windows XP. Then do a clean install of Windows 7, restore the files and settings using Windows Easy Transfer, and reinstall any necessary programs.

Windows XP and in fact all versions to date can be damaged by an untold number of things. reading anything I could. Do you have any Media Center add-ins installed, and have you recently uninstalled any add-ins? this page Choppy video and audio playback and sometimes Media Center would slowly grind to a halt and completely hang the PC.

I had entries in event log like Ereignistyp: Fehler Ereignisquelle: DCOM Ereigniskategorie: Keine Ereigniskennung: 10000 Datum: 09.12.2005 Zeit: 07:37:00 Benutzer: NT-AUTORITÄTNETZWERKDIENST Computer: D8250 Beschreibung: Ein DCOM-Server konnte nicht gestartet werden: {73E709EA-5D93-4B2E-BBB0-99B7938DA9E4}. Media Center component registration may have failed.   Click on Setings and TV and: "Critical Process Failure"   A critical Media Center process has unexpectedly failed. There will be some new critical updates available that are only offered after you install Update Rollup 2. i will address that, but at least i can watch tv now.
