Hey All,

I was downloading a driver from the website, it was going incredibly slow (just another reason I wouldn't get an Acer) and then download stopped half-way through, probably just a connection dropout. Now when I browse to the folder on my USB key where it was originally going to go, it throws up an annoying message saying "Please insert the last disk of the multi-volume set and click OK to continue" - Even though the file has been erased from my USB drive, it still asks for the multi-volume set

Any Ideas?


Answer:Annyoying Message "Insert Last Disc/Multi-Volume Set"

Hi Rome,

Seems you have autoplay enabled. Not a big deal, but whenever you insert your usb drive it will try and read the contents of the files on it. You can temporarily disable autoplay by opening control panel and typing autoplay in the search box at the top right. Click on the line that says "Stop or start using autoplay for all media devices" The next window that opens will give you an option near the top left to stop autoplay. Clear that check box!

Next insert your usb drive and erase the offending files!!

That's it. Hope I helped

I'm not sure if this happened with 5.55, but with 5.56, when I hit the volume up or down on my keyboard to turn the sound down for everything, it turns down winamp's volume bar too. Sometimes I can move winamp's volume bar up and down and it won't even be working. What causes this? It's pretty annoying for the music to turn down twice as fast or winamp's volume bar to not even work at all.EDIT: Moved to a more appropriate forum

so i havent dealt with this in a few years, i have a .rar, i have 81 pieces, i went to the first one,(which is .001) had to add a .rar to the end of it to open it.

then when i began extracting it takes the first one out and asks for piece.r00.

i dont have it, i thought there was a way to fix this but i cant remember, can anyone help me out?


Answer:multi volume .rar archive

There should be a .rar file in it, separate from the parts, that you can extract from.

Edit: Found this tutorial online:


- go into the directory that all the parts are located...
- highlight all the files at once (either hold CTRL and click each one or drag the mouse over all of them)
- right click over once of the files and select extract here
- job done!

I've recently purchase a turntable/software that purports to record LPs (records) into my computer via the USB port. My first attempt resulted in a volume level that is way too low. I need to increase the input volume but can't find the mechanism for doing so.

The install instructions say to select my SoundMax card for playback; to select the USB Audio CODEC device/driver for input. The SoundMax card has volume levels but no line input control; the USB Audio CODEC device has no controls whatsover.

My gut says that the USB Audio CODEC device (which is controlling input) is where I should be able to increase volume but I can't.

Suggestions? Thanks.

when i plug in my memory stick and do a search on it it say please insert the last disk of the multi-volume set and click ok whats gone wrong please

Answer:Memory stick -- insert last disk of multi-volume set?

it could be that the zip file is part of a lot more files. they are usually broken up into smaller parts to upload, and you need all of them to decompress the file.

or the file didnt completly transfer onto the USB drive, or has become currupted/damaged.

Hello there,

I have a bluetooth headset I bought to use with Comcast Softphone VOIP software on my computer. I got bluetooth to pair and connect fine. However everyone says it sounds like I'm in a factory. I'm in an office where typing and the printer are the loudest things near me!

So the mic is way to high. I went to "Manage Audio Devices" and went to recording tab, then double clicked my "Bluetooth Audio Input Device". Once there I wen to the "Levels" tab and changed teh volume to 12. That was the sweetspot that the person on the call said they can hear me well and not a lot of background noise. But as I continue talking the volume keeps jumping up and ends up around 30-50. Which then everyone says the factory sounds are back!

How do I get this volume to lock? It stays at 12 when I'm not on a call using the mic, but then I make a call, use the mic and it jumps up again. I have to keep muting my headset while on a call!

Can anyone help me troubleshoot this? I also did the microphone setup and that didn't help any. I went to "Setup a Microphone Wizard" and used Headset Microphone and spoke the sample sentence to set it up. When doing that I watch the input volume go to 18. Then I make a test call and it jumps back up to 30! WHYYYYY!?!?!? I already returned one headset thinking it was shoddy. But got a Plantronics one (highest rated on Amazon) and it is the same case!

Thanks in advance for your help.

I have Xonar D1 with Windows 7 x64 using Sound Forge 9.0e to capture audio from Line Level inputs (LPs played on stereo system).

The recording level maxes at -12Db to -15Db. This of course artificially restricts the dynamic range. All settings are maxed in the Xonar D1 control panel as well as the Windows Sound control panel.

All drivers are current.

This problem has beem reported by others on the internet with Xonar cards.

I have searched and tried many things suggested. None have worked.

Any ideas?

Answer:Line Level Input Recording Volume LOW / QUIET

-12 to -15 should be more than adequate for recording. I generally record in that range in my recording studio (using Sonar X1). This allows headroom for whatever I want to do. Sonar has the ability to raise the levels as I need them for final mix and exporting.

Record in 24 bits if you can (and then export/save the final file as 16 bit).

I'm attempting to record some video game footage for fun using Fraps but I have a serious problem with my headset.  I've disabled every audio input device except for my headset, which is a Logitech set (I don't know which.  I doesn't have a model number on it, but it's one of the fancier ones with the mute switch on the mic). My problem is that when I record the game, my voice is just completely out blasting the game and I can't get the game volume high enought to compete with it.  The Fraps sound is maxed. 
I discovered the problem to be the fact that lowering the volume slider on the mic doesn't affect the volume input of the mic for some reason.  Even when I set the volume slider of the mic to 0, the mic still stays at the same volume.  When I test it on the device screen, it will indeed show no voice coming through.  None of the bars will light up on the bar scale, but when I go back into the game and start playing again, it will record my voice blasting over the game audio as if I hadn't even touched that volume slider. 
All other recording devices on the computer are disabled so it's not a case of another device piggybacking off of this one.  Is there some other setting that I'm missing that makes the microphone ignore the volume slider?  I've been an electronic musician for years using my computer for audio recording and I've never seen an issue like this.  My only thought is that there's something in...

Answer:Mic headset input records at same volume no matter what the slider is set at.

I have problems with an application written in Visual Basic. The application is supposed to be able to control the volume of different output channels of the sound card RME Fireface 800. Within the VB application direct sound is used to control the volume.

However, volume control changes work for some of the assigned channels but not for others. Looking at Window's volume control mixer it can be confirmed that the output channels are correctly assigned to the application but the volume control changes are ignored for some of the channels.

The application and the volume control changes worked fine with the same application and sound card on a Windows XP machine.

I'm thankful for any suggestion on how to solve or work around the problem.

Second when I am at the Bitlocker PBA screen inputting my PIN\Password the computer will randomly shutdown.  From researching online this seems to be a problem with other make \ models and could be an issue with the BIOS.  Are there any plans to release an updated BIOS that might help fix these issues?

So I have a Blue Yeti, and I'm an online animator/voice actor. Whenever I record audio on my Blue Yeti (OR any other mic) I record about 4-6 inches from the mic, and turn the gain down enough that the audio doesn't peak as I yell or whatever. This is what you're supposed to do if you don't want your audio levels peaking and making your recording sound horrible and corrupted. However, afterwards, it means I have really quite recordings. Not a problem right? Now that it's recorded right, I can boost the volume of the entire clip afterwards right? WRONG. I'm not an audio expert so I must be missing something. But why in GODS NAME would the audio distort and peak AFTER it's recorded successfully? It's all there, it's all clean audio. If I turn the volume on my speakers all the way up it sounds CRYSTAL CLEAR! All I want to do is do that INSIDE the computer so that when I upload it to youtube people don't have to turn their speakers so far up. But if I increase the clips volume in the computer, it distorts! It sounds awful! Why?! I tried in Sony Acid and Audacity and they both do the same thing! Why?! I seriously don't understand what I'm missing here! I can take sound effects, and recordings made by other producers and crank them up nice and loud, but mine just fall apart! If anyone understands audio stuff, please tell me what I'm doing wrong.

Answer:Soft Recording volume with Blue Yeti, increasing volume distorts audio

I have a home recording studio using Sonar X1 software.

I don't know about Acid, but it should allow clean recordings. Audacity the same way.

I record, generally, in the -10 level with my recording program, at 24 bits/44.1 Khz. At -10, I have plenty of headroom and can then adjust the levels after the recordings and at mixdown. I export the mix as a standard 16 bit/44.1Khz wav file and then "finalize" whatever I want to do to the song, including levels, with "Goldwave" (an audio editior).

I assume you are converting the audio to MP3? If that is the case, that may be where the distortion is occuring? I find that 128Kb MP3's are very poor and at a minimum use 198 Kb MP3's.

This on is quite perplexing to me. This is stemming from a volume problem that I had posted before. I have more detail and have narrowed down the problem but not the cause of such. When ever I click the volume control in winamp, not adjust necessarily, just click, my wave setting in my volume control (pannel that comes up by double clicking the speaker in the tray) drops. Of course this affects my overall volume. It is sparatic and does not drop the same amount two times in a row but will drop everytime I click volume in winamp. I am running winXP pro and have not installed so much as an update since the last time this was happening. The only thing I did change is I set up voice recognition in Office XP but I was having this problem before that. I have uninstalled and cleaned out all winamp files and reinstalled. Any suggestions? Winamp is the only player of any kind that this currently happens with.

Also, whenever I am using winamp to play an mp3 or streaming audio and I open another program, any program, or even just minimize/maximize a window, the audio starts cracking. This also has never happend before except of course when there is a heavy load on the system. As I said I am running XP pro, and FYI a Duron 900 cpu and 448MB RAM. As I am having these problems I am using 5% to 10% of my cpu and have 21000k physical memory availible according to task mgr.

Hi all,

I have Toshiba Portege M800, and I have a problem with the volume wheel.
If I try to increase or decrease the volume by this volume wheel, it will change, but the volume not change linear.

For example, when I increase volume from 0 to something, volume is changed, during rolling, e.g. from 0-1-2-3-4-5-3-8-6 (thats just an example).

Why doesn't it change linear, e.g. 0-1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8 ?
Is it caused by software or it is hardware problem?

Could I claim the goods?


Answer:Portege M800 - volume wheel issue - volume level jumps


I have had a similar issue with the volume level on my Satellite notebook.
I tired everything; updated the BIOS, sound driver? I have also reinstalled my OS using the Roecvery disk but I didn?t notice any improvements.

Finally my ASP technician checked the volume wheel and cleaned the contacts and removed some dust.
This was the key?
The dirt affected the volume wheel functionality?

In my cases this helped but this does not mean that this will help you as well.
I think you should also update the BIOS and should check if you could update the sound driver.
If this will not help then it would be recommended to contact the ASP technician for opinion?

Windows XP Home
RealPlayer 10.5

Ok, I used to have RealPlayer and all it's junk till I wised up
and removed it from my system over a year ago.

However, I recently installed the basic RealPlayer (that is...only allowing
the features that I needed for video/audio) in order to watch NASA TV
e.g. DEEP IMPACT and today's DISCOVERY launch.

My question is regarding why, when I mute or adjust the volume on
the RealPlayer, that it also does the same to the computer's Volume
Control (Speaker Icon in System Tray...Wave setting).

I had been viewing on the RealPlayer, muted the sound and then later
was wondering why I was not able to hear any of my videos, music, etc.
The thought occurred to me to check the Speaker Icon and, sure enough,
there was a check at Wave>>Mute.

Is there a setting I can check/uncheck that will allow RealPlayer and
Computer volume to be independent of one another?

Thank you,

So I installed some new Windows updates today (whatever was available via Windows Update). I restarted my computer to enable the updates. When it came back on, my task bar was white for some reason. I solved that problem using the first solution I found here: [SOLVED] Taskbar is white

Well I didn't change my volume before doing that, so I don't know if it worked before I followed that solution. I do know that after following that solution, my volume meter no longer shows up when I change the volume via the keys for it on my keyboard. This is pretty annoying because it was convenient to always see my audio level when I adjusted the volume.

I am on a HP Pavilion dv7-6c95dx with beats audio, running Windows 7 64-bit. When I changed my volume, the beats audio logo with a volume meter under it would pop up, but it no longer shows up. I haven't noticed any change in the quality of my sound, and I can still actually adjust the volume level. The problem is the volume meter no longer displays to show me the volume level.

If anyone has any clue as to why this happened, that would be great!

Answer:Volume meter no longer displays when I adjust volume level

I only have another drive D:, which is also a Primary partition and 200GB in size.

I need to create another drive. So, I use 'Shrink Volume' on Drive D: and free 30GB.

Then 30GB become free space and when I right click on that, I choose to 'Simple Volume' and then format it as NTFS and assign the drive letter E:. All of a sudden after I did that, all the partitions(C: and D now no longer say "Primary Partition". The blue color on top of the partitions also changed to a yellow/brownish color. My guess is that they have been converted to a Simple Volume too.

Well, then I just restart my PC and astonished that my windows 7 can't load. Only a blank screen come ahead to me. No error message given.

I've seemingly tried all combinations of settings for the volume sliders/adjustments, including:

1) The volume knob on my speakers
2) The RealOne Player volume slider
3) The Windows volume control panel "Volume Control" slider
4) The WIndows volume control panel "PC Beep" slider

Even when the "PC Beep" volume slide is set to maximum, and the "Volume Control" slider is set near minimum in the Windows volume control panel, the PC beep is virtually inaudible when the background music is acceptably quiet (by adjusting the RealOne volume slider and/or the volume control on my speakers).

Am I doing something wrong? Is there some other way that I'm not thinking of to boost the volume of the system sounds my PC makes, while keeping the RealOne music volume low?

I have a problem with adjusting the volume. When I adjust the volume using the button on the left side of the laptop, I only can choose 3 "loudness levels":

No volume, very silent volume, and maximum volume (to loud).

Is this normal, doesn't anyone have problems with this?
I expect the problem is because of the digital volume adjuster. The adjuster doesn't register the exact position of the volume button. Every time when I get a phone call at work (I listen to internet radio), I turn off the radio using the adjuster on the side of the laptop. When I end the phone call, I always need to open the laptop and adjust the volume in the windows task bar, because when I use the volume adjuster on the left side of the laptop, it just immediately goes to maximum volume.

It?s very strange that your sound volume control contains only 3 volume levels?
I have noticed that Toshiba has released a new sound driver (v. on the European driver page.

So how about the sound driver update?
The sound driver controls definitely the sound volume and in my opinion it?s a worth a try.

Good luck

I can?t see the volume display bar when I increase / decrease volume by Volume Wheel which I have got in my Toshiba Qosmio F20. It used to work but not working since I re-installed my WinXP MCE 2005. Actually it was not working when I installed xp first time 2 years back, but I re-installed my sound driver or hotkeys or something else (which I don?t remember) and then it worked.

Hi, I'm in Hell!

I've recently built a new Windows 7 box, not my first computer built, but the first in a few years. Every step of the way has been problematic, and now that I finally had all the hardware issues sorted, I of course had major problems with Windows 7!

When I started up the system, I just got a black screen with a blinking cursor immediately after the bios screens. No ability to boot into windows at all. The Repair tools from the Win7 DVD said Everything's fine. I went through a dozen options in the console and finally broke my mirrored drive up and installed windows again on one of the drives. I still have the second drive, which should have my original install and all my data but won't boot on it's own. So I want to boot into the New Win7, and Repair the other Win7. When I start the DVD, it just goes straight to installing a repair onto the new install. Can you help me?

A while ago, my laptop (Dell Vostro 1310) encountered a blue screen "Unmountable Boot Volume" error.
Due to it being a second hand laptop, I do not own a Windows XP disc to fix it.
I have a new laptop now, so I'm not really too fussed about it, but I wouldn't mind getting my old stuff back from my old notebook.

Is there any way I can fix this without an XP disc?


I read somewhere that you can take the hard drive out and use it as an external hard drive for my new computer. Is this advisable? I'm not sure if "Unmountable Boot Volume" is a problem that concerns the hard drive.

I have a truecrypt encrypted volume which is my entire hard drive.  This contains the windows OS and my files(one of many backed up encrypted copies).  I would now like to implement a 2nd truecrypt volume inside this present truecrypt volume.  Truecrypt calls this a hidden volume.  The idea is that at boot-up, you can use one of two passwords.  The one you choose dictates which (the primary or the hidden) volume.  The easy way to do this is to do it when first creating both truecrypt volumes but I did not realize I wanted to create this hidden volume until now.  All of the instructions I have seen require you to dismount the encrypted volume which will host the hidden volume first.  However I can't do that because I need that volume decrypted in order to run the truecrypt software which performs the function.  
Any ideas other than decrypting the encrypted volume and starting from scratch?

So I restarted it and I've had two options for windows 10 for a while now volume 1 and 4 I don't know why, I've always used 1 but now when I click 1 it just goes to black screen, monitor is awake cause my light turns blue when it is, I pressed windows key with something I forgot what button while in black screen and sound was coming through. So I restated again and went on volume 4 and that worked fine out dated stuff since I haven't used it but it was working. I would like to get back on my main volume, or at least know what the issue is.

i did a Nvidia graphic card update a day or two ago as well.

Hello melb1946Does your keyboard have volume buttons? I know in my experiences I have sometimes run into similar scenarios. In my case the problem was accidentally hitting the volume button on my keyboard. How is your sound setup in Windows 7? Is your monitor set as the default sound device? Do other sound devices increase their volumes?Probably one of the best ways to isolate the problem would be to put the monitor on another computer and see if the sound continues to appear and go up.

Hi I seem to be having a really bad problem at the moment...

Here is what happened: Yesterday I was playing a game and suddenly my PC decided to crash, I simply figured that it simply ran out of virtual memory. No, I got my favorite error "UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME". This isn't the first time I've encountered this error and I'm truly effin sick of it! I cannot afford to lose all of my files
After a few hours of screwing around I finally got my windows XP disk to work, so I ran the repair. I typed CHKDSK /R in the command prompt which repaired the drive then I did FIXBOOT to repair the section that was broken.
Afterwards, according to every help article I can find out there says 'Oh it'll boot fine' Yeah.. not the case, infact, it wouldn't boot up windows without the disk in the drive. Why is this happening? why doesn't it just fix it the way it should? Do I really have to reinstall windows and lose all my files because of this?

But it gets better!

For some odd reason when I started my computer up it would act as it was about to enter installation of XP but instead it would load windows off of the disk in my drive allowing me to go on as like nothing happened. Although, it seems to be that my computer decides when it wants to allow that, I got on twice, reset once, used system restore now I can't boot up, it goes right to setup.

Hi everyone,

Although I have spent a lot of time researching my problem on forums and through search engines I really couldn't find a relevant/understandable answer

when I boot up my computer I get a blue screen right after the win XP black loading page that states "unmountable_boot_volume, stop: 0x000000ED ( 0x87124C08, 0xC0000006, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

This happened right after i stupidly force-turned off my computer. From what I've read this seems to be a very common problem, and there are instructions on the MS website on how to solve it.

The thing is I can't repair XP from the XP CD as it is usually suggested, because I don't have this "repair" option. My recovery console just won't load and the same blue screen keeps showing up.

Since a long while ago I've been having some weird issues with audio on my HP Netbook. Whenever I listen to audio on anything that has a separate volume slider (e.g. Youtube videos or iTunes) the volume is always at maximum. If I slide the slider back to minimum the sound slowly crawls back up to maximum while the slider stays down at minimum. Strangely this only seems to happen when using headphones/earbuds. I tried recreating it without headphones but it does not appear when using the laptop speakers. I also tried changing earbuds/headphones but to no avail, the sound kept playing on maximum volume. Also to make clear, the windows volume sliders work just fine. When at minimum the sound stays at minimum. It's only on separate volume sliders that are embedded in programs themselves. Julliath

The volume button became temperament to control volume. Sometime working, mostly not. should i manage to use button to turn up, id find within minutes it was back at zero volume. Also due to having to constantly turn phone up therefore due to this and also having to press button very hard, the components in and under button have broke. Love n need this phone (birthday pressie this year (April 2014) from my son, so my phone only 7 months old.

Answer:Is updating the volume button the only way to control the volume?

Unfortunately that's the only option available today. There are workarounds but they can only be used to get the job done, not quite a user friendly feature

I'm using a Logitech 35 headset on Windows 8.1 64-bit and all drivers are updated but when i want to adjust the volume, the volume mixer becomes unresponsive and stops working and my headset stops receiving sounds.

Answer:Volume mixer becomes unresponsive when I change volume

The G35 headsets I found, doing a search, are 7.1 surround sound headphones, USB connected and with a volume control in the headset cable. Is this what you have? If it is you should apparently be controlling the volume from the headset's volume control and not the PC???

Hello, Ten Forums!

I was wondering whether it were possible to open the volume mixer instead of the volume control when left-clicking on the volume icon in the tray. At the moment I have it set to open the old classic menu, but not the volume mixer.

So, is it possible?



Answer:Is it possible to open the volume mixer instead of volume control

All i see is right clicking to do this. What do you mean by classic menu ?

I use W7's volume control for the studio monitors I use. It's not practical to use the knob on the monitors since it is located in the back.

The max volume (100%) in W7 is not loud enough while the minimum volume (0%) still makes sound when Id like it to be mute if it's at 0%

How can this be done?

I've had this problem with Windows Vista Ultimate 64, Windows 7 64 7077, and Windows 7 64 7100.

Basically, the volume starts out at normal level, then all the sudden it will be real quiet. It stays quiet and no matter what settings I adjust, I cannot get it to play louder again. I would really like to disable all of the volume controls in windows and run Bit Perfect audio....

Sound Card: Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS Gamer
Audio Rig: B&K 7270, Emotiva DMC-1, Polk LSI-25

That amp is putting out nearly 400 wpc (weighing nearly 100lbs O_O) to each speaker... My normal listening volume is -46 db (on my DMC-1)... now I have to put it on -17Db to get the same listening level. Something is wrong, and it's definitely the settings in windows.

I noticed the change immediately while I was listening and accidentally adjusted the bass settings in windows sound settings, the sound level fell instantly, and never returned...

any ideas?

The issue I am having is in a way similar, it goes loud and the base starts to distort...very minimal, hardly noticeable on most songs. I am running the 32bit version on a ROG X-Fi MB which uses the SoundMax AD2000

Completed the Cyan update to my ATT Lumia 920 and now I can only get a maximum of 10 for volume where before update i could get up to 30 for volume. Any fixes or suggestions?

Answer:Lumia 920 -- Volume Only Goes to 10 After Cyan Update - How do I Get to Volume at 30?

do you have any rock music loaded on the phone? if not, possibly try putting a spinal tap album on and that should at least take it to 11
if not a reboot will usually fix it, i have had that happen on my 920 even without cyan, it comes and goes.
