Ok, how's this then.

Take a working system on the samsung laptop.

Close down the emulator
Rename the file hd4.hdf to AAhd4.hdf
Copy file to data stick
Rename copy on data stick back to hd4.hdf
Move stick to Sony Vaio
Delete the existing hd4 file on the Vaio
Move the data stick version into place on the vaio
ie. Program files(x86)/RPCEmu
Run emulator on Vaio   *** It fails disc not understood ***
Copy this new failed version back onto the data stick
Move data stick back to samsung and copy hd4 into RPCEmu.
RUN Emulator on SAMSUNG.   Works fine.

This after I've twice re-installed the emulator.

After months struggling with the networking on an XP machine to realise it
would never be reliable or even approach it, to now get this I'm really
starting to think this is a wind up.
