Hi All,

I have got a new laptop which is running Vista home basic. I have tried, (without success!) downloading music from HMV and keep getting the message - 'The Background Intelligent Transfer service needs to be enabled'

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Many thanks

Start> Run> Services.msc, double click BITS and set it to Automatic, then Start, then Apply.

Youch. Right. If you go to Services, and press the W key you will see all the Windows Services. Try making sure that all the ones about Media Center and Media Player are active.
