Hello Richard,
Some of my alphanumeric keys are not function properly, every time I press SHIFT to have a question mark, it will show  ;   for double quotation.  I set my keyboard in English not French.  Can you show me how to fix them,  Thank you

     When I click onto 599CD all I get is a black frame.

Reply from Richard Rost:

It's probably an issue with your Windows Media Player. Try using the Theater and switching to the Flash player (option in the bottom-left corner).
