i've got a couple issues i'm hoping someone will be able to help me with, as they've been frustrating me of late. my friend moved to england recently, and we like to do video calls via wlm. for some reason, with this nlited version of windows xp i'm currently running, i simply can't install or use the factory-installed "chicony usb 2.0 camera."
i've downloaded and installed the driver and accompanying software from the toshiba support site several times. then i formatted. tried again. no luck. i'm currently working on a new install of xp so that i can try that, to see if anything from the previous copy i created with nlite might have been left out that may be to blame.
the more pressing issue, however, involves my partitioned hard drive.
evidently, when one deletes the C:/ partition whilst attempting to install windows, the D:/ partition becomes recognized as the only drive and assigns itself boot-drive status. so. what's going on is, i deleted the C:/ partition, then installed windows onto it. somehow in the process, D: became C:, and of course there's no easy way to change the C: drive letter even if it doesn't contain a windows installation.
it's not a catastrophe, but i'd like to have my drives labeled properly. so far it hasn't caused any errors or anything, but the D:/ partition now occupies the first half of my HD and the C:/ the second, and all my junk is on the C:/ drive now which makes it frustrating and confusing; it interrupts my flow while using my laptop.
anyways, if anyone has any thoughts about these issues, i'd love to hear them. thanks again!
ps. my laptop is a toshiba a200 psae3c th108c running windows xp FULLY updated (except silverlight and ms search 4...who the [bleep] needs that garbage?)
