Motorola Droid M and Skype Video Speaker option

Q: Motorola Droid M and Skype Video Speaker option

I recently downloaded the latest Skype for Android to my Motorola Droid M smartphone. When I make a Video Call on Skype there is no option for a Speaker option so I can only hear via the phone earpiece. I have tried using earbuds but the sound can not be heard. I couldn't find any help on the Skype site and others appear to have the same issue. Does anyone know how I can "fix" this myself or how you actually speak with Skype Support?
Thank you,

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I am with Verizon and my "New every 2" just kicked in. I'm looking at either the DROID ERIS by HTC or the DROID by Motorola but I don't know why I should go with the Motorola one since it is $23 for the HTC one vs $150 for the Motorola one. From what I can tell they do pretty much the same things, run the same apps, ect, so why would I want to pay $127 more? Anyone know?

Hey everyone,
Whenever i try and plug in my motorola droid, i ask windows to locate and install the driver. I have already installed motoconnect and it registers that the phone is connected to the comptuer. I also have access to the SD card located inside the phone. I keep getting this error though.


Can anyone help me with this or tell me how i can fix this?

Thanks so much,

I recently bought an HP ENVY Notebook i7-6700HQ 17 inch with built in webcam.Windows 10 was pre-installed and I loaded Linux Ubuntu 16.04 LTS next to it, as well as Skype for Linux.When I want to use Skype and I select a contact I only have the option for a call without video even the contact is video capable.I checked with Cheese and it detects the webcam on my notebook.With a previous MSI I had to enable the webcam before it could be used.Is this also the case with this HP laptop?Any other suggestion which I might try?

We are looking to move off of our blackberries to one of the 3 phones. I do see where all 3 of them will connect to an exchange server. I have read some where that the Droid X will not allow you to move e-mails to sub-folders. As far as a business phone, which is the best over all and more importantly, which one works the best (or has the most features with) exchange.
 

A:Verizon IPhone, Droid 2 and Droid X

I have the Droid X and have never had problem moving e-mails; however, I believe that either the Droid 2 or Droid Pro are best for business. The physical keyboard makes them better for tapping out e-mails and any other text based communication.

Hi All,I am looking for a cordless speaker phone that I can connect to a old OptiPlex 755. I will use this for Skype meetings only. The OS is Windows 7 64 bit. I have seen a ton of the ones out there using blue tooth but this machine doesn't have a blue tooth interface.

Hi @ZrUlka,Welcome to the HP Support Forums! It is a great place to find the help you need, from other users, HP experts and other support personnel. From your description it seems you are referring to an Acer system with the issue. With that in mind you may want to try out the Acer support site. Acer Worldwide Support - acer.com If on the other hand you are dealing with an HP system, then please post the full product number and operating system in use on your computer. See the following, if you need help with that information.How Do I Find My Model Number or Product Number?Is the Windows Version on My Computer 32-bit or 64-bit? Please let me know how that works for you, and if it does resolve your issue, please mark this post as a solution.

Hello So I've recently built my own PC and now I'm trying to use surround with a set of speakers I have lying around is working in applications that specifically support it such as XMBC where I can enable support in the settings However other applications do not play surround sound So I've tried looking for an option that - option Fill Realtek but Surround no working, Speaker upmixes default sound to however I could not find one Others have suggested to enable the Speaker Fill option but I can't find it anywhere Also this thread Where Is quot Speaker Fill quot Option In The New Realtek Sound Manager Driver - Sri Lankan gaming and e-sports community suggested to use the environments setting but there isn't any in the SupremeFX control panel The sound card is a Realtek one built into my motherboard My motherboard is an ASUS Maximus VII Ranger the control panel for the Realtek card is called SupremeFX I'm using Windows x I'm using the latest audio drivers so I know that can't be the problem Any suggestions If screenshots or further information are needed I can provide

A:Surround working, but no Speaker Fill option - Realtek

Just wanted to say I've found the solution myself after a couple of hours of searching... Turns out you need to enable DTS Connect in the SupremeFX control panel. It's just incorrectly named, but if you turn it on, set the width to max and set it to music mode, everything works fine.

Question:

Where is the Speaker Fill option (play music on all 5 speakers) in the latest version of this driver's HD Audio Manager?

Background:

Recently I updated my drivers from the Realtek website. I have a 5.1 speaker system but the problem is ever since I updated to the latest version, Realtek HD Audio Manager no longer has the "Speaker Fill" option... so basically only 2 of my 5 speakers will play audio!

I don't understand why they would remove this option in the latest version. I could simply refer to an older version but the new version has something I really want which is Secondary Audio Output for Headphones (helps me DJ).

I tried replying to this topic about the same issue but it was too old: working out how to get 5.1 in Vista

Also, that topic did not answer my question because the "Speaker Fill" option is absent from my Vista Speaker control options

A:Newest Realtek HD Audio Manager no longer includes SPEAKER FILL option

you could still use the secondary output for headphones with the old realtek drivers and control panel, just double click on the output from the headphone socket within the realtek panel and click on front speaker out, this will change it to 2 outputs for the same audio, I would upload a pic to demonstrate but I'm not on my pc at the moment, I'm on my G/Fs notebook.

If I turn on the video the people I am talking to say the sound breaks up and is distorted. The sound is good without the video, and the video is good when turned on but distorts the sound. The cam worked fine on my old PC with Win XP. Does anyone out there have a similar problem?

The thread name pretty much says it... Video option is grayed out, like there's no camera in the system.
It is the Dell i5559 laptop with integrated Intel RealSense webcam. Dell diagnostics tool says camera hardware is Ok, and even shows a few seconds of video from the camera when running a test.

A:Skype video problem

Hi Marv,

1. Click on the Start Orb and then click on Control Panel. (All steps have screenshots below and you can click on any screenshot to enlarge it.)

2. Double click on "Problem Reports and Solutions".

3. Click "See Problems to Check" on the left hand pane. (N.B. Your window will not look exactely the same as mine)

4. Under Skype, click "More Details". I do not have Skype in my list, so substitute my Installer for your Skype.

5. Copy everything in the red box on MY screenshot and paste it into a reply to this thread. Alternatively you could make a screengrab of the whole window and reply with that instead.

How to take a screengrab: How to Use the Snipping Tool in Vista

6. Click "OK".

7. Check "Select All" and "Check again for solutions to other problems" then click "Check for Solutions". If any new solutions are found, particularly for Skype, open them up and see what they say.

8. Make sure you have the latest version of Skype installed.

Go here to download the latest version of Skype: Downloading Skype for Windows - Skype

With that seemingly pointless piece of text nonsence, we may be able to solve your problem!

Hope I can help you,

A:Slow IE 7 Video and Skype

Hi - sorry, but I noticed the '5-steps - do this first' link after I made the original post. I've completed all 5-steps as recommended and have the below (and attached) current log files for consideration.

I was surprised that active scan found 2 viruses and 4 spyware files after I scanned with Norton and SuperSpyware.

To fully explain the problem:
- we turn the PC off every evening
- on startup the system seems to take a long time to become fully operable
- despite my best efforts (cleaning the startup directory for all users and configuring the launch setting within individual applications), some programmes insist on launching at startup, these include Skype, the associated USB phone and Adobe photoshop starter.
- Skype is essentially useless. Conversations often breakup or cut out. As an ex-pat living overseas, this is particularly disappointing.
- Most web-based video skips and stalls. VERY poor quality.
- We have two young children who have some games loaded from individual CDs and they also play internet based games. They are often plagued by the same performance issues for their web-based games.
- MS Office applications take a while to initiate (longer than on my work PC at least). This is despite downloading a 119MB update via step 4 of the recommended 5 prerequisite steps.

A:Skype video quality

Has this always been the case?

When you say "video call," do you mean both the audio and video quality? The components you've touched on are probably all fine, working as they should and doing their best for your programs to be top notch fast and capable. These components, however, can only do so much-- the main things you should look at are your speakers/audio card, microphone, and webcam.

Hi Folks,
does using the video call feature in Skype add to my 10gb download allowance?

A:Skype Video Call

Yes, everything you do on internet adds towards that limit. Videocall is somewhat "expensive" in terms of bandwidth, depending on the quality you use.

Hi,

I have just set up skype yesterday.

I connected with a friend with skype to skype. I have an old Logitech Quickcam pro 4000 and she has a new Lifecam HD 5000. The problem is, she says she can see me clearly with good quality but the video I am seeing of her is verry blurry.
I have another friend who I connected to as well and I can see the video of them is much bigger and clearer than the other friends one.

I want to know what exactly is the problem of why I can't see friend 1's video clearly? Her video cam is clearly better than mine so I wouldn't think its the webcam's problem. The only thing I can think of is maybe her upload speed is slower than mine? But even if it's slower, I should still get good image quality just a lot less FPS right?

Hope i make sense....

First of all, if this thread can you help me move it to the appropriate place to be helped.

So I need help selecting a good Microphone and Speaker for Google Hangouts. It is not for a small group. I want the audio to be heard decently loud and the microphone to be able to pick up 2-4 presenters at the front for the viewers on Goole Hangout to hear.

For the microphone I was thinking something like: http://www.amazon.com/MXL-AC404-USB-Conference-Microphone/dp/B001TGTDFM

For the speaker I don't really know yet. I was looking at speakerphones like these clear ones: https://www.google.com/shopping/pro....5&ei=vg6GU-_-O7LksATwy4HIBg&ved=0CIcGEKYrMA0

I kind of don't want to go about maybe $400 max I'd say $500 for both of the products.

You guys got any suggestions? Thank you all in advance.

Hi all,

I been using Skype for a long time now, but have only recently started using the video call feature. I find it quite useful. The problem is that the video freezes after a minute or two when I make video calls. I then have to restart to unfreeze it. I can be a hassle. The video freezes on both sides of the video call. One minute my video would freeze then the other side freezes as well. The audio is fine. There is nothing wrong with my webcam.

I have a Microsoft Lifecam VX 1000. Windows XP Professional. Service Pack 3.
I have version 4.1.0.141 of Skype

How can I make video calls that don't freeze?

Thanks in advance.
 

A:Frozen Video Calls in Skype

My experience has been that if I have too many extra's turned on the camera, it might freeze. I have a Logitech cam, and it has a feature called Low-light boost that sometimes has given me problems. (also accessed through Skype at Tools>Options>Video Settings. Then click on the button that says Webcam settings>Advanced Tab).

Other possibilities:
*Double check your camera driver for the latest version.
*Bad internet connection (double check firewalls, anti-virus etc.)
*Make sure you have the latest version of DirectX
*Make sure the camera application software is running at the same time as Skype.

Good luck, hope this helps.

When making a video call in Skype, I cannot see my aunt's video. We can hear each other; she can see my video; and she can see the video of herself. She is running Windows XP service pack 2 and has the Logitech C250 webcam. I had her download the latest software for her webcam. I had her check to see which version of DirectX she has which is version 9. I had her uninstall and reinstall Skype. I don't know what else to do.

I do not have this problem with other video calls.

Help will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
Kaye

I've been having trouble maintaining 720p chats on Skype lately; apparently the program decides what quality to "let" you stream at based on your connection and hardware, but they may have changed something in a recent update because I've been dropped down to 360p streaming with the same connection and camera.

Google+ Hangouts seem nice but IIRC they don't offer fullscreen, and I tried oovoo but all I saw was ads. Is Skype really the best out there?

Hey, I've been recently encountering some rude disconnectedness during most of my Skype calls. Over the past few weeks I've had about 6 BSOD's and 4 of them occurred while in a Skype video call. The other two were video driver related and haven't occurred since (from what I believe)

Just a warning that I'm not extremely good with Tech vocabulary so dumbing it down a bit will be appreciated.

Hello,

I am having some problems while viewing video over the internet and also when using SKYPE (a particularly frustrating problem since we are living overseas).

I originally suspected some sort of spyware / malware and posted this request to the relevant section of the forum (my first reply is more descriptive than the original post). However, a reply from Ried (who reviewed my Hijackthis log) has my system being clean. Ried suggested I try this section of the forum.

This problem has not always been there - the PC worked fine for a year or two before things started to slow.

Grateful for any help.

Hi i m back here as advised by myrti in post below Posted Yesterday AM Hi parkton your logs are looking clean and I don t think malware is involved I would suggest that you repost your issue in the Windows forum from which this thread was originally moved Please be aware that Hijackthis as well as DDS are used for malware detection only at BleepingComputer which is why your topic was moved to malware removal So when you repost just leave out the log from Hijackthis and I m sure the people in the software forums will get you sorted quickly It sounds like you may have a driver issue On a related mattter if this is a laptop prebuilt PC from a major video BSOD?

Just to recap from Skype video settings causing BSOD? my original post I ve connected up a Trust Primo webcam and installed Skype Webcam and skype both seemed to work before downloading drivers for webcam because i wanted some of the extra features like face movement tracking Only seems to cause BSOD when clicking on Skype tools- options- video settings- CRASH Otherwise i haven t as yet encountered much else other than my HP Photosmart B a wireless printer is disconnected and has apparently lost it s drivers which don t want to re-load Can you advise on what i need to do to fix the problem - as stated above myrti thinks it might be a driver problem Thanks

Any ideas on why the image isn't displaying onto the projector? If I open up the webcam software alone without Skype and video myself, it will project just fine onto the screen.

You camera is apparently/obviously working fine. If it wasn't, they wouldn't be able to see you. You not being able to see them or not being able to see your cam is likely a software or configuration issue.

Meaning you can see your friend, but all he sees is the image provided?

If the image is displayed incorrectly on your PC;
Does other types of media show correctly?
PC Games, Videos, Youtube etc?

If the image is displayed incorrectly on your friends PC;
Try using your webcam to take pictures/record videos directly on your PC, and see if the image contains the same fault as in the printscreen.

Spybot Search & Destroy is not enough realtime protection, especially if you are downloading Torrents. Make sure to install security software. I recommend either of these:Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows coupled with Malwarebytes. Do not start the free trial of Malwarebytes. Just use the standalone version, update it, and scan your computer once a week with Malwarebytes and with Microsoft Security Essentials.

Good and Free system security combination.

After installing your security software, update it, and then run full scans today with each program. Report back the results of the scans.
You have a 0x124 hardware bugcheck. If the system is still under warranty, I would recommend sending it in to have diagnostic tests done and any bad hardware replaced.


   Warning
Before you proceed with the following, answer these two questions: Are you still under warranty? Does your warranty allow you to open up the machine to check hardware? If you are unsure of the answers to these questions, contact your system manufacturer. WARNING: The steps that follow can void your warranty!!!

For your hardware stop 0x124 crash, read through Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try and use the following hardware checks to supplement that link.
If you are overclocking any hardware, please stop.

Monitor temperatures during the following tests. Use the following programs to monitor the temperatures. Real Temp is a good CPU temperature monitor.
Speccy - System Information - Free Download will monitor all hardware temperatures.
HWiNFO, HWiNFO32 & HWiNFO64 - Hardware Information and Analysis Tools can be inaccurate for CPU temperatures, but is a good program for GPU temperature monitoring.
Use FurMark: VGA Stress Test, Graphics Card and GPU Stability Test, Burn-in Test, OpenGL Benchmark and GPU Temperature | oZone3D.Net to test the graphics card GPU. Let it run until the GPU temperatures even out or until the GPU temperatures reach a dangerous level (you can find the max temperature for your card on either the nVidia or AMD sites; if you are not sure, ask us). The goal is to get a steady temperature, find out if the GPU is overheating, or to see if there are any artifacts present in the test itself: look for strange pixelated patterns on the screen or colors that do not look like they belong. Then use the |MG| Video Memory Stress Test 1.7.116 Download to test your graphics card memory. Let the memory test run for at least seven passes; the more the better.

Run Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95 to determine any hardware problems. Run all three tests for a few hours each. If you get errors, stop the test and post back here.

Follow the steps for doing CPU stress test using IntelBurnTest

Run the boot version of Memtest86+ paying close attention to Parts 2 and 3 of the tutorial. Also, in case Memtest86+ misses anything and comes up with no errors, run the extended version of the Windows Memory Diagnostics Tool for at least five passes. These you may want to run overnight since they take a long time to complete (run them an hour before bed each of the next two nights and check before going to sleep that they are still running).

For Part 3: If You Have Errors: If you swap any memory components, follow these steps for ESD safety:Shut down and turn off your computer.
Unplug all power supplies to the computer (AC Power then battery for laptops, AC power for desktops)
Hold down the power button for 30 seconds to close the circuit and ensure all power drains from components.

After reapplying the image and logging into a standard user account, windows re-installed the apps that i uninstalled during the audit process.

How can i prevent these apps from installing on standard user accounts? Is there a local group policy or a script that i can attach to an unattend file that can accomplish this?

If not where are these apps located so i can block them via application restrictions in the local policy.

Hey guys hope you can help me here.
When i'm at any kind of voice overs, in a call on skype or teamspeak it manages to happen a sound crash, but the time isnt certain, sometimes it takes about 10 minutes and other times take 1 hour or more to crash.
When the sound crashes, all the videos freeze. Its like watching a video with super slow motion and no sound.
Only way to solve this is rebooting.

Please do the following.

How to find your Minidump Files:

My Computer > C Drive > Windows Folder > Minidump Folder > Minidump Files.

It is these files that we need (not the folder). Attach to your next post the five most recent dumps. Notice the Manage Attachments button at the bottom when you go to post the next time. You can Zip up to five files per Zip. Please do us a favor and don?t Zip each one individually.

Also...

1. Are you attempting to connect to Skype with an integrated webcam in your system or is your webcam a separate one? If separate please tell us your make and model.

2. For clarification is your XP updated to Service Pack 3?

3. What security software are you running?

4. When connecting to the internet are you wired or wireless?


Edit Update: My gut tells me it isn't Skype per se but your webcam drivers or your security software, but hopefully the minidump files will give us a definitive cause.

Skype / Messenger Live video call voice quality (fixed)

Hi All,

I am having a few problems with webcam calls with my folks.

I have installed the latest versions of Skype and Windows Live Messenger on both machines but when using either one for webcam video calls their audio and video coming to me is absolutely fine and so is my video to them however my audio to them is delayed, juddery, and robotic/gravelly (as if i have a sore throat). It is the same in both programs.

Zone Alarm on both machines is configured to allow these programs to run as they wish but still the problem persists.

We both have broadband at speeds usually no lower than 3mb.

Any help apreciated.
Rob
 

A:Skype / Messenger Live video call voice quality

skype is heavily dependant on bandwidth. I use it here in Iraq and with phone calls can be garbled if bandwidth is insufficient. However, it would seem in your case, the problem may be firewall related. I would ensure that all your ports are open for skype. I don't recommend zonealarm as it interferes with many programs.

I have the network speaker connected wirelessly to the laptop already, so it can pull music files from it using DLNA through Windows Media Player 11. Now I want to be able to play a DVD on the laptop and have the sound simultaneously play on the network speaker. I know WMP12 on Windows 7 has the "play to" feature, but how can you do it on Vista?
 

A:How do you push audio from video playing on WMP11 on to a wireless network speaker?

I'm afraid you can't do it on Windows Vista. You need to upgrade to Windows 7 since that's the only version on which WMP12 will run, and the feature you want to use only exists on that version of WMP.

A:Why isn't the Dedicated Video Ram option available in my BIOS

You don't give details on which Acer Laptop model you have but the BIOS is probably locked by the OEM due to configuration limits. The OEM settings will most likely provide the best performance available for a given model. If there's an available slot, you may be able to add a video adaptor to increase video performance. That will depend on what model you have.

I have had two video cards in this machine (Windows XP Home SP2) in the past for a dual screen setup..
Today I put in a 2nd video card again (as the one that was in there previously has gone walk-about) but I dont have the option in windows for the 2nd screen.

Everything appears fine in device manager (the screen that is working is the PCI ViRAGE one), as for the GeForce - well the light on the monitor comes on but doesnt display a picture, but in display properties there is no option for the 2nd card. (see attached screenshot)

Any ideas? - I've tried uninstalling/Reinstalling the Geforce, and the ViRAGE, but I cant get it work..

Any Suggestions to why the option isnt appearing?
 

A:2 video cards, but no dual screen option!

I did a search for this and got this:

To install additional monitors
Turn off your computer.
Insert your additional Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) or Accelerated Graphics Port (AGP) video adapter into an available slot.
Plug your additional monitor into the card.
Turn on your computer. Windows will detect the new video adapter and install the appropriate drivers.
Open Display in Control Panel.
On the Settings tab, click the monitor icon that represents the monitor you want to use in addition to your primary monitor.
Select the Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor check box, and then click Apply or OK.
If the check box is not displayed on your computer, it may be because your video adapter does not support multiple monitors. See Notes for information about compatible hardware.

Notes

To open Display, click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Display.
Selecting the Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor check box allows you to drag items across your screen onto alternate monitors.
Or, you can resize a window to stretch it across more than one monitor.

To use the multiple monitor support feature, you need a PCI or AGP video adapter for each monitor. If you have an onboard video adapter (one that is not a plug-in card but is part of the motherboard) that you want to use as part of a multiple-monitor configuration, it must be set as VGA.
To find hardware that is supported by Windows operating systems, visit the Windows Catalog on the Microsoft Web site.

If your computer doesn't recognize your second monitor, click Display Troubleshooter for more information.
The operating system always needs a VGA device. The computer's BIOS or EFI detects the VGA device based on slot order, unless the BIOS or EFI offers an option for choosing which device is to be treated as the VGA device.
The VGA device cannot be stopped, which is an important consideration for docking units.
The monitor that is designated as the primary monitor will display the logon dialog box when you start your computer. In addition, most programs will display windows on the primary monitor when you initially open them.
If you are using Dualview, skip steps 2 and 3 above. Just plug your second monitor into the video out port on your portable computer, or into the second video out port on your desktop computer. When you turn on your computer, it should recognize the second monitor. Follow steps 5 through 7 to extend your display to the second monitor. If the second monitor is not shown on the Settings tab, you might need to update your display driver.

Hi. I recetly bought HP envy note book .The product specifications are as follow. As you can see the my laptop has integrated amd card with almost 4GB of ram. But surprisinlgy, I am not able to play even COD 4 (modern warefare) on it. Weird, isn't it?Then I dive into the hardware information and have found that only 768MB of the grahpics card is being used. Please refer the following image.  Now, I am trying to find a way to increase this allocated Ram but I can't see any such option in BIOS.Note: This notebook doesn't have any dedicated graphics card. So my only option is to increase this adapter ram.How would I do it?

A:Increase AMD video memory but there is no option in BIOS

Hello @awaise17, Good to see you back on the forums.  Now lets take a look at your video memory issue.  Thanks you for the pics by the way.  It is nice to have a visual.  Now the memory that you where pointing at in the second pic is dynamic.  So at that moment you system was using that much video memory out of the possible 4GBNow as for you COD modern warfare issue.  I am note exactly sure why this would happen.  I know myself I have a notebook that i can play WOW on and have it cranked right up.  Now when I tried to install and play Splinter Cell, it would not run.  Yet when I installed Battlefield that game ran just fine.  I thought maybe it was the copy of Splinter Cell was a bad copy so I went and picked up another.  Same issue.  Another issue I have run into with gaming is with my one computer I upgraded to windows 8.1.  On this computer when i run the install it goes all the way through but when i go to actually run the game i get a black screen with a cursor and nothing else. So I found a little helper out there called Can You RUN it.  it will allow you to test your specs and find out if your game will run or will not run.  Here is the link CAN YOU RUN IT! With this you will find out what the issue is.  You can have all the memory in the world but that is only the tip of the iceburg when it comes to playing games. I hope this helps.  Please post back and let me know. Thank you and have a great day

When I click on System updates, it says your system is currently up to date. I went to androidcentral.com and followed the instructions to push the update. The phone said that the file was not supported, and would not download, on all 3 download links. Any thoughts or help?
 

A:Droid update

Hi,

Both me and my roomate have droids, his auto updated 2 days ago, and mine updated this morning, so give it some time, they are doing it in "waves" and no telling what phone is in what wave of update.

Hope this helps

Is it possible to run Windows Backup, and put the files on a smartphone? I have a Motorola Droid, and I am simply curious if it is possible.

A:Can I Backup Windows 7 On The Droid?

You might be able to store files on the Droid (I don't know how). I believe it has a MicroSD card, so that can be written to by a computer.

It also depends on the size of the files. A complete backup of Win7 will take about 15gB

I need help. I recently bought a new droid 3 and most of my contacts are missing. I am getting close to what happened (not how). When I go into my gmail contacts online they seem to all belong to my brother. On my new phone, I have those contacts plus what seems to be transferring from Facebook, but I only have phone numbers for people who have them on FB. I still have all my real contacts on my old phone (the original Droid from Verizon, if that helps). Is there any way I can get my old contacts from my original phone back onto the new one without having to re-enter them all? BTW, Yes I did check that I was logged into MY account on google and not my brothers.
 

A:HELP! Droid / gmail contact mix up

Yes you can, if you go into your contacts on your old phone, you can press the menu button and then select "Import/ Export" and you can export a copy of your contacts to the SD Card in the phone. Do the same process again to Import them into your new phone.

I always use gmail to keep my contacts across phones, but exporting them is a good back up solution.

Is there a list or something someone can link me? How much does 2.2 use? 4.4?
 

A:How much CPU and RAM does the Droid's operating system use?

Roughly, the Android OS uses 7GB. The CPU usage as well as the RAM usage depends on how many downloads and apps are running at a given time

Our daughter recently bought a Droid phone and is emailing us video clips of our grand daughter. Whether we use Windows media or Quick Time, we can't get any sound. We have no problem viewing and hearing other video clips, e.g. from YouTube. We have a Dell XPS M1330 laptop and Windows 7. What could be the problem and what is the remedy? Thanks!

A:No sounds on Droid downloads

Hi Renald,
You could try other players. I found out (Google) that VLC player and HandBrake should work with Droid videos. They're both free.

The only way I found is to go into trash folder and touch the check box next to each email you want deleted then press menu and delete....
