There can be cases, where when you try to join your client computer to a Domain, it gets authenticated with the Domain Access rights, but Throws error saying “Network Location Cannot Be Reached ”

Microsoft KB says: Enable the TCP/IP Netbios Helper Service  in Services.msc.  But if that service is already up and running, then that KB is invalid.

 

Follow this procedure to isolate the issue straight away. See the below screenshots for precise referencing.

Enable all the protocols for the Network Adapter you are trying to establish the Connection to the Domain.  enable all the Protocols like Link layer topology and others as seen in the 2nd screenshot.

SLM Files

I was asked by many of my Blog Visitors about the SLM file recovery methods. I am very much sorry that I took so much long time to respond with the solution, just because I was bit busy and out of station, to be able to see comments and work on this much demanding Post.

First off, SLM stands for Media File, SLT stands for Thumb nail. So, Thumb nail can be recovered easily with the File extension change technique, however the original Photo; SLM cannot be recovered with the simple File extension changes. So, follow this awesome method to recover all your SLM files to revert back to Original Photos.

[UPDATE – 17-09-2015] Better alternative to PIXRECOVERY Software. Use Stellar Phoenix JPEG Recovery Software to recover multiple SLM Images at once. Test it using below Torrent link. Ensure you buy software once happy with the test results.

Stellar Phoenix Torrent Link

Alternatively you can use old PIXRECOVERY method if interested.

Download PIXRECOVERY SOFTWARE from torrent sites: Full version is available there at KAT.PH Click the left hand Link to visit torrent site . Please Note, I am not encouraging you to use Pirated software, Just navigating you to Use the software before you buy it, for confidence on Software you purchase it prior. If happy with purchase prior testing, you can navigate to this website and Buy it or download a Demo version as well: http://www.officerecovery.com/pixrecovery/

Once downloaded DEMO, or Installed FULL version of PIX RECOVERY. OPEN the PIX recovery and Click on Recover Menu. See below images:

In Either Stellar software or Pixrecovery software recovery methods, you’ll have to rename the SLM File to .JPEG to get image loaded into software. Please Change the View options from Windows Explorer settings in case you have difficulty renaming the file extension – shown below:

Folder Options - Show File Extensions

Folder Options - Full

—-> Must Do – Change the SLM file extensions to JPG   <—- and then open it up in PIX recovery software and it will process automatically the images with individual folders created for IMAGES recovered. The safest way and fastest way recovering corrupted or encoded Images.

Note: SLT is not required to recover SLM files, You can copy and paste all the SLM files to computer and change the SLM file extensions to JPG and start recovering process then on…

PixRecovery_Success_1

Open Pix Recovery Files 1

Change the SLM files to JPG extension and play accordingly, as seen in above images. only JPG, TIF, GIF extensions are supported with 1.0 version of PIX recovery software.

Congratulations on recovering your most valuable images with this technique.

Update: This Method Actually Formats the whole capacity and Will require you to restore your IPOD to factory settings. This is for erasing the Games and some stupid content in IPOD, and freeing up Space for mush desired Music and Videos or required

Hey Guys! Now it’s time to wordpress a situation about Ipod Nano being unrecognized in iTunes or/and Windows Explorer, where nothing ahead we can proceed to make use of IPod. For this process to be able to succeed, we need to see the Device partially recognised, means device is Visible in greyed out or hidden like Volume mounted in Windows Explorer, but when tried to access the disk, it says, Please insert a disk, something like that message. this is to format the Whole iPOD and bring out new fresh IPOD. But if you wish to make use of data in the iPOD, just uninstall the drivers for IPOD in Device Manager and Re-install or scan for new hardware changes being installed itunes and connected to internet for better drivers install.

So, how exactly to solve this problem; here it follows. Once you are confident that the volume is recognised, but cannot access the disk either itunes way or volume way in Windows, you have to go to Command Prompt in Windows by pressing Windows+R key together to start a run dialog box and press CMD in there. or type cmd in Start search box and hit enter. Once you are there at the elevated command prompt type the following commands to check whether your iPOD is recognised as a volume disk or not “cd: F:” Pleas note that, here F is the Disk that Ipod has been granted to mount on Windows. It varies as per your system. To make sure what is your Disk name, check the Windows before connecting IpOD and later , to see the newly mounted Disk. Once confirmed that its the only Disk of IPOD, proceed with the given Disk LEtter

if it says the volume is there but not recognised or corrupted, then with the confident that F or the Given Disk letter, Proceed to format the volume disk with the following commands

“format F:”

Once the command is successfully passed onto IPOD Disk, the Formatting option will start formatting the drive with the New EXFAT file system, that will format the drive and will help you recover the iPOD disk back to working in itunes and Windows being recognised.

Hope this help some frustrated Patrons.

Thank you. any further info or queries, happy to help through comments made here.
