Re: Need Help Using AnyBurn CD Burner

Tom Kaufman
 

Hello Joe and list: Have basically one question: how does one tell (before you start the burn) the size of the MB; this is to say, how do I know if I've gone over my limit? Here's my plan: I have a folder with a hundred and thirty three items in it; my plan is to maybe burn around 65 of these items on to one CD (these items run approximately a minute to a minute and a half! So I need to know if I can do this, or if I'm going to have to make more than two CDs to get this done? Thanks; you've been very informative so far!

Tom,
a couple of pointers below.
Hope this gets you started.

ttom, when the program starts, there are 13 options displayed.
tab to the one you want, let's say urn files and folders, and press space-bar.
The destination cd drive window opens, if you have more than one cd drive, it will be displayed in this combo box.
cursorto the drive you want to use and press enter.
Now tab through the buttons, you will arrive at a list view dialogue, then a list view without the title dialogue. This is the one where you will drop the files you want to write to disk.

Now go to your files using windows explorer.

Highlight the files you want to burn, remembering the disk capacity and the total value of the data to be written.
If you have an 80 minute cd, then 800 Mb is your maximum data size to be written.

When files are highlighted, copy to the clipboard.

Now alt-tab back to the list view in anyburn.
Paste from the clipboard.
Tab to thhe first button outside the list view, press alt-n for the next button, and follow the prompts in the burning property sheet.

The more settings button opens up to allow the change of coppies, and a couple of other items you may like to adjust.

Need Help Using AnyBurn CD Burner

Tom Kaufman
 

Hello List: Am attempting to burn a CD, using a program called AnyBurn; I
have burned one MP3 file, but never have tried to burn more than one file
at a time! Can some please explain to me how this is done? I'm probably
dense, but am just not understanding exactly how to accomplish this! I know
that I can copy one file to this thing and have it burn it. But if I want
to burn many files, how is this done? Forgive my denseness and thanks for
any help or info you can provide!

Re: Winamp issue.

JM Casey
 

This did happen to me for a little while actually -- I wish I could remember how I solved the issue besides getting rid of some plugins. Actually I was, and still am, using v5.666. I thought the 5.8 beta actually got rid of the plugins that were no longer viable. Certainlyt he portable devices plugin was something I trashed. Not sure that was the cause, though...

Winamp issue.

adam morris
 

Hi all,

running winamp58_3660_beta_full_en-us on win10 home.

if I try to play a track by selecting it and press enter nothing happens.

if I open with and select winamp it takes about two minutes for the song to play and during this time winamp isn't visible.

If I make a song play using any other player it plays straight away.

I've uninstalled winamp, removed it from x86 and %appdata% with the same results.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Bowes Mini SoundLink replacement?

Geoff Eden
 

Yes, the Bose mini ii, is the best $200 Canadian I have spent in a long time. For both close listening and it to fill a modest size room, it can't be beat. The pairing procedure is simple, and the book says 10 hours on a battery charge. I can assure you that they must be speaking of relatively high volume, because I frequently get 25 to 30 hours of desktop listening.

They have found an interesting way to get a pack of fairly realistic base punch, and I do mean punch, from a speaker unit that is hardly 8 inches long and 2 1/2 inches on a side. There is a deep enough bottom there to make you think you're dealing with 10 or 12 and speakers, at least down to 40 or 50 Hz.

Mine is 2 years old and I'm not seeing a noticeable difference in the rechargeable battery cycle.

If I remember correctly WavePad decays the quality of the audio each time
you save is it doesn't act on the mp3 frames. MP3Mate sounds like a better

Ordinary headphones have a cone shape diaphragm typically made out of paper, plastic or metal. The techies know these as electro-dynamic Transducers, and they work on electromagnetic principals and basically move Air which arrives at your ears as a sound Wave. Also, electro-dynamic speakers are a point source, meaning sound disperses radially from the speaker's center. Esl's use electrostatic principals to reproduce which are very different from the principals above. Instead of a magnet and cone diaphragm structure, esl's use a large, heavily biased (high voltage) ultra-thin plastic MEMBRANE 'hat' is sandwiched between two conductive stator plates to reproduce the sound. The ESL is a linear source and the music disperses evenly over the whole surface of the diaphragm. They are also dipole, meaning sound waves radiate from the front and rear, and the MEMBRANE is not usually enclosed in a cabinet, thus the thin speaker profiles and unique acoustic qualities.

Re: Query about recording audio cassettes to mp3 via the pc

Steve Jacobson
 

Robin,

Thanks, it is very possible that the microphone and line inputs for the Bose speakers are just alternatives to a USB input and that the speakers are only an output device. One probably couldn't know for sure without the manual, but it seemed worth trying to me. I will be interested in hearing how it all works out.

Best regards,

Steve Jacobson

Hi Steve,

thank you for such a thoughtful reply.  I always try to exhaust all my own resources before yelling for help as it were. So I explored the settings very thoroughly and tried changing various things and then restoring to defaults to no avail. I thought at one time I'd gotten the Bose input jack to work but can't reproduce this so am wondering if I just thought I'd gotten it to work once upon a day as I do not see it as a recording input source anywhere in settings and I have it set to display even ones that aren't available at the time or however it's phrased in Windows.

.

I hope I get it figured out too eventually. ☺

Take good care.

Robin

Robin,

It sounds like you are on the way to a solution, but it is not
impossible that the input jacks on your Bose speakers might work.
However, you will need to explore your sound settings when something is
plugged into that jack. The fact that your speakers are USB speakers
implies that they are already acting as a second sound card. The trick
might be that if they support inputs as well, you will have to switch to
the inputs associated with the Bose speaker in the record tab within the
sound settings on Control Panel. The Bose option, if there is one, may
not be active unless something is plugged into the input jacks. It is at
least worth a try. If you get another sound card, you are probably going
to still need to explore the sound settings to get things to work, so
doing some exploring in case you don't need the additional sound card
won't be a waste of time.

It is also possible that your Microphone input
on your desktop is still set for microphone and that it is overloading.
The sound settings might be able to change the function of that jack to

Microphone dialog has a check box for additional amplification.
Unchecking that box and lowering the volume level associated with it might
work as well. However, sometimes I have found the input jack on the front
of a computer is not stereo. Have you explored the back of your desktop?
There are usually additional jacks. If your workstation is a laptop in a
docking station, that can confuse matters further. Like you, I was more
comfortable when each jack had a function and you new what it was. On my
newest desktop, pretty much any jack can have any function. When I plug
in headphones, a dialog asks which device did I plug in and I select
headphones and then they work. I can use a microphone or headphones in
either of the front panel jacks depending upon how I answer the dialog.
In my case, some of the assignments are not easy to manage because the
dialog doesn't work well with screen readers. Anyway, I hope you are able
to get it figured out.

Best regards,

Steve Jacobson

Hi,,

Awww you made me smile.

actually
when I did try using the mic/line in jack on the desktop tower its
resulting sound was hideous I mean awful which is what started this trek
down the proverbial rabbit trail.  I spotted a reasonably priced sound
blaster USB card which I consider purchasing to use solely for recording I
just hope using such wouldn't impact my Bose speakers which plug into the
pc via USB as well.  In theory one would think that I could keep the Bose
as my default for output and use the sound blaster solely for recording
and such but one never knows with such things these days.

Thanks for your

Re: Query about recording audio cassettes to mp3 via the pc

Hi Steve,

thank you for such a thoughtful reply.  I always try to exhaust all my own resources before yelling for help as it were. So I explored the settings very thoroughly and tried changing various things and then restoring to defaults to no avail. I thought at one time I'd gotten the Bose input jack to work but can't reproduce this so am wondering if I just thought I'd gotten it to work once upon a day as I do not see it as a recording input source anywhere in settings and I have it set to display even ones that aren't available at the time or however it's phrased in Windows.

.

I hope I get it figured out too eventually. ☺

Take good care.

Robin,

It sounds like you are on the way to a solution, but it is not
impossible that the input jacks on your Bose speakers might work.
However, you will need to explore your sound settings when something is
plugged into that jack. The fact that your speakers are USB speakers
implies that they are already acting as a second sound card. The trick
might be that if they support inputs as well, you will have to switch to
the inputs associated with the Bose speaker in the record tab within the
sound settings on Control Panel. The Bose option, if there is one, may
not be active unless something is plugged into the input jacks. It is at
least worth a try. If you get another sound card, you are probably going
to still need to explore the sound settings to get things to work, so
doing some exploring in case you don't need the additional sound card
won't be a waste of time.

It is also possible that your Microphone input
on your desktop is still set for microphone and that it is overloading.
The sound settings might be able to change the function of that jack to
Line in which could clear things up. In addition, sometimes the
Microphone dialog has a check box for additional amplification.
Unchecking that box and lowering the volume level associated with it might

Re: Query about recording audio cassettes to mp3 via the pc

hi, you may have to use an output of the sound card for the speakers, since computers usually don't handle more than one audio USB at a time.

Hopefully the sound card you wish to use has more than just a microphone input as such, or a facility for handling all you desire to use.
