Hello to all and my apologies if this question is so simple to answer that it insults your collective intelligence.
I have an hp iPAQ h4345, which I know is not the latest thing but it only cost me £28 on eBay. Before switching my Laptop to Windows 7 I had no real problems, or at least none I couldn't work out. I had wanted the PDA mainly for using as a mobile chess engine and database, for which it still works well. When I discovered I could use it as a sort of clunky iPod that was a bonus. As for the video capability well, have you any idea of the number of good quality instructional videos on various websites? I was a happy man, though still not much of a chess player, sadly.
Now, however, I only seem to be able to download the videos as MP4 files which the Windows Media Player 9 Series for Pocket PC installed on my PPC won't even acknowledge.
Any and all help/advice will be gratefully received though the less technical the better. It isn't that I'm not clever enough , more that I am inherently quite a lazy person. I have already found advice on this site to be very helpful without having to pose a question myself so I have great faith in you all being able to show how stupid I have been in missing the blindingly obvious- you can even give me abuse if you can solve my problem!
(But stick to the site's rules, obviously!!)
My only complaint about this community of techno-brownies is that you didn't bring yourselves to my attention sooner!
PS; a Brownie is a mythical Scottish creature who helps out around the house when nobody is looking. I was going to use the word fairy but some people can be so touchy...
