[Solved] Irfanview "disk is full" error

While using the batch processing of Irfanview you can encounter this error: "disk is full".
The error happens when you've set to overwrite thre previous files (advanced conversion settings) and they are *locked*.
Check if the file can be written by your Windows User, check that the file is not read only, check if the file is not locked by another process.


______________________Remove read only____________________
Right-click on the file.
Click on Properties.
Click on General tab, clear the Read-only check box, and then click OK (confirm also to apply to all the subfolders.

AMD PCNET Family PCI Ethernet Adapter - Windows XP, 2003 Drivers




It could happen that you cannot find the drivers (AMD PCNET Family PCI Ethernet Adapter - not installed) of the ethernet (nic) adapter that is used in  virtualbox.

 PCI\VEN_1022&DEV_2000&SUBSYS_20001022&REV_40\3&267A616A&0&18

I've found also this link https://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/3411 but I was unable to see a working download.


Since the links to the amd websites are failing and it seems that they canno be found website I'm adding a new link.


Here you can download the  Drivers AMD PCNET for Virtualbox

They have been tested with Windows XP 32bit  and Virtualbox 4.2.0 r80737 .
After a bit of time I've tested them with Windows 7 pro 32bit (a slim version) and they work.
They also work on Windows 2003 R2 (thanks to David Acosta).


If you have a direct link to the AMD website or any other good information just add it in the comments.
