problems viewing training videos
« on: November 07, 2009, 08:10:11 PM »
Hi
I am completely new to cnc, can't wait to get going, I bought my mach 3 licence but currently I am working overseas so I have not yet got my machine set up. I thought I would put my time away from home to good use viewing the training videos and generating some g-code.

My problem - When I view a video I don't get the whole thing only about 20%, when I try and down load a video after a very short period I get a 'timed out' message.

I know nothing much about computers, is there anything I can try to overcome this problem, I have spent a frustrated day making many attempts with out success. I am using a laptop with vista, I am working in Malaysia, my connection is a mobile broadband which is not particularly fast but generally does not give me trouble.

Thanks for any help

Nigel

Just had a look at the videos and the first few seem to be working fine for me. Have you tried downloading direct from the ftp site?

Hi Hood
Yes I had been down loading from the ftp file however, I tried your link and using google chrome instead of windows explorer everything suddenly works great, I can download and view no problem and it seems quite fast. Guess the problem must have been windows explorer? Thanks for your help, after so much frustration I can now start the learning.
