** Win98 Gold (First Edition) vs 98SE won’t matter - except you may need some updates (CSP1, etc - i can point you to them) …the only thing SE can do that Gold can not - is ICS (don’t worry)
Start menu | Run DXDIAG
use ALT + PrintScreen to capture to clipboard, open MSPaint and Save as JPEG if necessary - but PNG is preferred, yet you should have IrfanView installed or similar to do the conversion…don’t need MSPaint if IrfanView is installed - it’s free
– save as a PNG file and post the screenshot (using Manage Attachments once you click “Go Advanced” in the Message box area) - choose Browse to your saved file and choose it and click Upload
** Fat32 file size limitation is 2GB on 98, and 4GB on Win2K/XP systems (not GHz)
** 188.8.131.52 - > Do you have a DVD codec installed ? (DVD Player software ?)) - this is necessry to even watch DVD-ROM on your PC
** Dunno about the “Files you need to update” yet - but if you tell us “which” files it says you need - we can point you in the necessary direction be specific here.
** my version 184.108.40.206 came bundled with my CDRW drive when purchased
** My system was built with a DVDROM drive and came with DVD player software and the necessary codecs.
** I think i recall ONE decent free codec - will find it if necessary - but post back the files Nero says it needs (and any error messages)
** HOld onto 5.5.10.x - we’ll get it installed - and Tell us your intentions, as far as burning only CDs – or DVDs as well, and if you have a DVD Player app installed
BTW - there’s a FREE built in DVD player on the 98 CDROM , do you have a 98 OEM CDROM, or Full Retail version - or just an Upgrade version ? you still need that Codec though, but i can find it if necessary. I’ll tell you how to extract and install the DVD player later after we sort out these issues a bit - and you post back detailed answers
