    It's semi portable yes, but it's not that bad at all actually unless a person has like toothpicks for arms or something. I carry it around the house under my arm and have a Dicota case to take it outside which I have yet to do.

    When that happens, delete the folder of the driver in Swsetup. Run the actual softpack again. In this case SP45058.exe.

    Yes, I regularly use WLMM, but with wmv and avi input formats. I have never tried vob in WLMM and doubt it will open them. But if your input is in wmv, the conversion to other playback resolutions/bandwidths is straightforward. WLMM comes with a number of pre-defined profiles, including one for small screen mobile devices, and can even automatically convert and upload to youtube.

    It's from an HP notebook, Matsh!ta/Panasonic UJ-220S with frimware 1.01. I've rooted around for newer firmware but I could only find Sony updates that won't work on The Dragon.
    All types of burning tested except Blu- Ray (waiting on blank media arriving). Blu-Ray playback fine in PowerDVD 9 after the update patch.

    It may be a little dishonest, but the intention was always to send one of them back once tested.

    The 's' in 220S means most likely it's a Sony pull. HP would also put a sticker with their logo on their drives--they have been doing so consistently. For Sony's 220S, the latest firmware (runs on our HP HDX) can be obtained from their support sites. Without it you will have problems running some newer interactive blu-ray titles and possibly also issues (speed or complete failure) with some burning projects/scenarios.*

    *Edit: *esp. if your drive's production date is pre-2008. (You can find production month/year on the drive's sticker).

    Oui c'est sur mais passer de 20,1" à 15,6" il faut en avoir du courage ... :p

    On est d'accord ! ;)

    "200 ou 300 euros les deux" intéressant c'est de l'occas. j'imagine ?

    Pour répondre à tes questions :

    J'ai démonté entièrement mon HDX9050EF [HD2600] et mon HDX9270EG [8800M] et je peux te garantir que TOUT (plasturgie, dissipateurs, écran, son, wifi, etc.) est similaire mise à part la carte mère (même si similaire visuellement, j'imagine que le chipset ne doit pas être le même) et la carte graphique bien entendu ...

    Bien pour le proc, tu l'as acheté quand, où, à combien et dans quel état (neuf/occasion version définitive(retail)/prototype(Engineering Sample) ?) si c'est pas indiscret ?

    Et pour le 20" je partage le même avis ! :)

    PS : tu t'es décidé alors pour l'upgrade ?

    New GPUz .0.3.8

    Has even more metrics than the previous version such as:

    % GPU load
    % Memory controller load
    % Video engine load

    Merci pour ces précisions, ça me rassure :)

    En effet la carte mère compatible avec la 8800m gts ainsi que la CG , c'est de l'occasion.
    J'ai eu la CG sur ebay;
    http://cgi.ebay.fr/Carte-Graphique-Nvidea-pour-HP-pavillon-HDX-9000-series_W0QQitemZ160383253873QQcmdZViewItemQQptZFR_GH_Informatique_Composants_Cartes_Vid%C3%A9o?hash=item2557963d71

    Concernant la carte mère je vais la commander ce week end aussi sur ebay pour environ 200 euros:
    http://cgi.ebay.fr/Hp-Pavilio-HDX-HDX9000-9100-9500-464591-001-motherboard_W0QQitemZ280420450650QQcmdZViewItemQQptZMotherboards?hash=item414a5c815a

    Concernant le CPU T9500 je l'ai eu aussi sur ebay il y a environ 6 ou 8 mois pour environ 200 euros.Il s'agit d'une version définitive (occasion). J'ai toujours été méfiant avec les ES :).
    J'aimerai te donner le lien mais je ne l'ai plus.


    Voila tu sais tout, j'ai hâte de tester la 8800M GTS car il parait que par rapport à une 2600 xt c'est pas mal.






    Encore merci et à bientôt.

    PS: Est ce que tu sais si dans ce forum, quelqu'un parle des drivers compatibles avec win7. Je voudrais passer à win 7 mais je suppose qu'il faut jongler avec les drivers :)
