Basic ?'s from a new mp3 owner (zen

)Is my zen V 2gb? mp3 player battery memory or no memory. No memory means I don't have to worry about losing capacity if I recharge when battery is less than fully discharged. 2)How can I check to see how much recording capacity I've used and how much I have left? 3)Can I label/identify my line-in recordings so I can read on the display the name of the artist or music rather than just getting the player provided info of date and time of the recording?

  • Basic questions from a new mozaic owner

    I have some very basic questions about how to use the new mozaic 2G mp3 player. I bought the Mozaic because it has a speaker and sleep timer, but I'm finding it to be much harder to use than other mp3 players that I have had (Ipod shuffle, clix etc). This may reflect my failure to look in the right place but I have to say the "help" section isn't much help.
    Here goes:
    . I download podcasts to listen to during my morning run. WMP provides an easy to find place in its program, "recently added," which allows the user to just work with those files. As near as I can tell, Creative makes you wade through all of your tracks. Is there some way to create a file to which "recently added" tracks, or specific tracks, can be dumped? How about automatic tagging of these added files?
    2. I have several thousand pictures on this hard dri've. Apparently, the Mozaic Centrale
    Is going to copy all of them, which strikes me as a waste of space. Is there a way to shut this function off? I couldn't care less if a single photo was added to the centrale program (or whatever it's called). Is it really going to duplicate all of the jpg files?
    3. I have the Zen Stone plus speaker which has served me very well. I had similar problems working with whatever Zen was calling its media player and wound up using WMP instead. I"d like to take a run at using the dedicated Zen media player....
    I apologize for the basic nature of these questions, but the answers weren't obvious to me from the materials I was able to locate.

  • Basic time machine question from a new mac owner

    Hello. I have an icon on my computer that says time machine and when i select the open time machine preferences, it takes me to my set up for my airport extreme.. is this correct or is time machine something additional that i would purchase to set up?

    Thanks for the star and no problem, I would recommend that you get yourself an external drive though for backup. With any computer not having a backup system is gamble and sooner or later you will lose. If you do decide on a TM backup drive it would be wise to get one that has Firewire or Firewire 800 connections (for speed) and it should be about 2x the size of your interal drive if possible. Once you connect one TM will automatically back up your system and continue to back up every hour only backing up changes and addtions. So for example if you keep music and pictures and are continually adding material to your computer those are memories that you don't want lost if your machine has a failure, TM will help prevent that from occuring. It is one of the coolest features of Leopard. Two pieces of good news, TM is simple and external hard drives are fairly inexpensive these days.

  • Problem with my brand new mp3 player Zen Stone Plus 2GB ( with built in speaker )

    Hi .
    I have purchased the following Zen Stone Plus 2GB with built in speaker on 24.06.2008.
    From day one, it had a charging problem . Initial charging it'snever go beyond 87%.
    After using it for 2 days, at the time of recharging , I found my player won`t get dectected in my PC .
    I took the set to the vendor for a checkup . He tried to solve it by resetting , formating etc. But he could only able to to format it's sacrificing its 50% of its allocated space.
    My vendor then changed the set with a brand new one, againts that faulty one .
    Now the new one worked well for 3 - 4 days , but it is now totally dead .
    But the set did not give any indication before it become completely dead.
    A few dust particles inside the LCD screen was also observed. I can`t understand how come dust particles can enter inside
    a player which is sealed box pack .
    Next issue is with the battery which CREATIVE promised of giving a backup of approx 20 hrs of continious playback , which with minimal scuffling and with minimal settings lasted for 0 hrs approx ( 50% less than promised ).
    Another thing that i must state is the problem of FM Reception . It is simply terrible . In the same area where my mobile's FM reception is fine , Zen Stone's FM failed to give any reception .
    I came to know about Zen Stone Plus from of my friend , who is using Zen Stone Plus GB without any problem for long time.
    Pls tell me what to do now, since my player is compleately out of order now , and pls suggest me something regarding the issue of battery backup , FM reception ... etc.
    Now i am in a total mess . I just dont know what to do with the set that is few days old .
    Pls help urgently .
    Waiting for any valued suggestion .
    Bye ...

  • A few basic questions from a new user - backups, moving files, sharing

    I'm a Mac user considering getting an iPad. I'm hoping someone can clue me in to some basic aspects of the experience:
    1) are backups easy? can you "clone" it (the way I do with my desktop and laptop) so that everything (content, settings, preferences, etc.) can be restored exactly in the event something happens to it?
    2) how does one move files to it? Specifically, PDFs - I have a ton of PDFs I plan to be reading on this thing. Does it show up as a drive (drag-and-drop) when connected to my desktop machine, or does it work through a special conduit or? Does it have a filesystem we can see?
    3) is there any notion of "users" - can multiple people share it and have their own sets of preferencs settings/content?
    4) is the iPad 2 date still best estimated as April? I need it for a trip in mid-March and I don't want to buy the 1st model if the second is coming out shortly thereafter. Is there any likelihood of having it be available in the first week of March? If not, is there a good place (on-line) to rent one for a week perhaps?
    thanks in advance!

    1, yes they are easy, but they are not a clone. When connected to iTunes on your computer you just tell it to backup. That will backup your notes, settings, app data, but not synced data (i.e. not your music, films or contacts and calendars synced from your computer).
    2, via iTunes, not as a drive. PDFs can be dragged into iTunes and then synced to the iPad to go into the (free downloadable) iBooks app. Alternatively you can buy an app like Goodreader which allows you to transfer PDFs wirelessly from your computer (can also be used to read/store PDFs emailed as attachments).
    3, no. There is only one set of options. If you have children (or even other adults) then you can set a passcode to restrict access to, for example, Safari, iTunes, or the ability to install and delete other apps. But it's basically a single user setup.
    4, speculation as to what Apple may, or may not, be planning is prevented by the terms of use of these forums. All that can be said here is that no new version has been announced, and when/if one is it will be on the frontpage. You should ask yourself whether the current one meet most, if not all, of your requirements, not whether some unannnounced item might.

  • Thoughts on new mp3 player "Zen&qu

    I love the whole design/interface and I'm sure will continue to provide great video playback, music quality with customizable EQs, and good battery life. MY only issue is the space. I will definitely miss out on the 30gig hd space of the creative zen vision m's (I wanted to buy it, but it's not being sold anywhere). I think it was a mistake to discontinue it because people are still willing to buy. I don't mind the bulkiness of it compared to the ipod video because it excels at everything else.
    I guess flash dri'ves are easier to work with for creative (Cnet says that Creative isn't making anymore hard dri've players).
    So far the only creative mp3 player i've owned is the creative zen micro (5 gigs) so I was hoping for more space than 8 gigs (since i'll be watching some videos too).

    No more hard-disk based players from Creative?
    Well, with all the problems their hard disk players are facing, I don't blame them for making that decision. Guess I'm one of the lucky ones with a wonderful 30GB ZVM. 9 Months and still ticking beautifully, although I do admit that syncing is a pain in the ass sometimes as Window$ Media Player would randomly do stupid things like upload the same song twice into the player when I change album or artist name (I make stupid typos like that sometimes, or it would be because the FreeDB/CDDB/Windows Media Online entry has typos), and think that a file has already been uploaded previously even though it's already been deleted. Then again, that would be M$/WMP's fault.
    Anyway, given how the price of flash memory has dropped, I think we would once more be seeing 30GB devices from Creative in the market in the near future. And they would not be as sensiti've to shocks, bumps and drops that plague any hard disk based players.
    Psst, Creative, now that the product's abandon ware, care to tell us how to upgrade our 30GB ZVMs to 60GB? or enable USB host? Message Edited by RAMChYLD on 09-03-20072:9 AM

  • Thumbs up from a new MPB owner

    After 18 months of research, and subscribing to Macworld and Maclife and spending alot of time in my local Apple stores ---- I made the move this past Saturday to a stock 2.16 Ghz MBP Matte display.
    I have been using it every day since Saturday and it runs/looks flawlessly. I just applied all of the latest patches, including OSX, and no problems. It runs quiet like a church mouse and no heat. I don't bang the CPU so I may not be the best to speak about non-heat, but I had it on all day Sunday and the top cover stayed nice and cool.
    I did buy the extended warranty as my sales person put in his student ID to give me a discount, and also .mac as I was using the demo and I liked what it had to offer. My experiences at the Apple stores by me (NJ) are always great, very friendly helpful people, never try to push more than I need. He even said the 2.16 with 1GB of memory would serve me better than the 2.33 model.
    So ---- just wanted to give a heads up that my new system runs like a charm, and I'm very happy I switched to a Mac. I'm a person that likes diversity and I always enjoy using different operating systems. I do like the Mac better than MS though !!

    Sweet Bob, have fun and enjoy! Check out the speck case, the snap on, to protect your investment! I love it and it make it more tolerable to have on your lap when working, and being lazy!

  • Some question from a new N97 owner

    Hi all,
    So I just got my new N97. I have a few questions:
    - Configure home screen: So far I can add 2 shortcut bars (each can contain 4 application). I want to add more short cut bars, is there anyway? In the selection list when choosing the bar item to place on the home screen, there is no "shortcut 3" item.
    - Screen saver: So far my N97 locks key and screen becomes black and locked very fast (about 10 seconds) no matter how I try to change to settings. Actually there is nothing displayed (back screen) at all. And to wake up, I have to use the lock/unlock slide on the side. Is this normal? I can't touch the screen to wake it up? I got to Menu > Settings > Phones > play with settings there but no use. Do I need an application to have the screen saver feature? Is this a device flaw or do I have to change settings somewhere else?
    Thanks in advance.

    hmm i have a n85 as well hence my response to you in regards to the screen saver. yes it shows those options but eventually it does go all black. unless i missed something with my phone. which is possible as i no longer use it as my primary device. the only option right now for you to customize home screen is to wait for n97 app MyPhone that hopefully will soon be released for your model. nokia phones have never nor will they ever behave in a iphonish fashion hence no possibility to set apps up as you would like. n97 is full of customizations just not exactly how you would like them to be who knows perhaps with future updates it will become even more flexible but for now its either that or waiting for MyPhone to be released. sorry. 
    ps. i am greatly surprised that n97 would not have a screen saver options at least similar to the n85 that worries me as i am also awaiting arrival of my brand new n97. so hearing all kinds of news makes me a bit concerned about this new phone. time will tell. sorry i dont have anymore news for you.  
    You know what I love about you the most, the fact that you are not me ! In love with technology and all that it can offer. Join me in discovery....

  • Basic question from a new buyer

    Hi everybody,
    As a lifelong musician, I've used "Finale" in the past, to generate music based on musical notation as the input. From Apple's ads for Logic Express, it's not clear to me if music can be entered that way. (although it looks like it can be output that way) Can I write music using standard notation in Logic Express?
    Thanks in advance.

    I also am very comfortable working with notation. You may have figured it out by now, but below the Arrange area is the Editor window. One of the buttons is labeled "Score", and clicking that gives you a notation window. When that is open, a Part Box also opens on the left of the screen, and you can drag and drop items from there onto the score. There are also keyboard shortcuts, and it's worth digging around in the manual a little bit to find out about how to work in this editor. It's very versatile, and I use it all the time.
    Happy writing!

  • 2 questions from a new Mac owner

    Hello everyone,
    I just recently purchased my first Mac (Macbook Pro) and am really enjoying it. I have 2 questions that I cannot seem to find an answer for.
    1: Is there a way to reverse the FN keys ( I dont like having to hit FN + F9 to use expose, i hardly ever use the those keys except for volume). Is there a way to make it so when i press the keys i get the normal key and if i want to use the features of the key hit FN + Key? I cant find any way to do this, weird because the documentation for Leopard never mentioned anything about me having to hit FN+F9 etc to use the features
    2: Whenever i reboot into bootcamp and start to play a game, the notebook fans start going crazy and it heats up considerably fast. I usually stop playing after half an hour out of fear i will overheat. Is this normal behaviour for this to happen or could there be something wrong with my notebook?
    Sorry if these sound silly, I am new to all this

    1. I don't think you can since the keys serve two purposes. However, an intrepid programmer may have written a utility for that sort of thing. One never knows. Search at VersionTracker or MacUpdate.
    2. Yes, that's normal because Windows does not have any fan control implemented. I don't think there's a solution for this common problem.

  • Brand New to Creative Zen Vision M - Basic Query Re Music Playback

    Hi - bought this MP3 player 2nd hand having seen good reviews. I'm really a Samsung devotee, but couldn't seem to find anything from them in the 30gb range and my 8gb was getting too restrictive (I vaguely remember something about a court case with Apple ... did they stop them from making/selling new MP3 players, or something?). Anyway - now with a CZ and trying to get to grips with basic functions all over again (I'm nearly 50 and a female with no kids to quiz on this kind of thing - it's tough, but I'm getting there!). What I'm particularly keen to do are two things: 1) select a whole album to play, either in sequence or random tracks, and 2) select an artist and set the player to randomly play only their stuff from all the available tracks stored. These things were so simple to do with both the Samsungs I've had, but I'm completely stumped with my CZ (and, yes, I've read the downloadable manual). Hoping these things are possible ...

    O God - 16 views so far and no one can answer? Doesn't bode well. Anyone want to buy a boxed Creative Zen Vision M in very good nick?

  • Basic questions from techie thicko with 'new' G4

    I've looked but can't find the answers to these basic questions.
    My new (reconditioned) computer as below came with just the operating systems and something called 'Cloner' plus some Utilities.
    A) What is the best way to switch between OSX and Classic?
    (It defaults to X on start-up and I can get to X from Classic by re-starting pressing 'x'. If that's the right way to do it, what is the approved way of getting into Classic?)
    B) I'm not sure (after reading about it!) what I can do with Cloner and how.
    C) I have AppleWorks on OS9. Can I update this for OSX? Failing this, is there a Software Download that will give me a basic DTP facility until I can afford to buy an advanced programme? I also have Pagemaker 7 in Classic.
    D) I have been transferring stuff to Classic from my iMac DV 9.2.2 with my card reader and this seems to work well. Anything to watch out for?
    There's more but I can't impose on members' kindness too much!
    For future reference, is it possible to post pictures on these boards and if so how please? I have Photoshop and hosting sites.
    Sorry to be a pain but I really am an idiot about techie stuff.
    Thanks for any help.

    I'm not sure what Cloner does. It sounds as if it may clone the hard drive, a bit like Carbon Copy Cloner:
    I'm wondering whether it was just used to put the operating systems and utilites onto the drive in the first place when they reconditioned the computer. Perhaps they use a 'master' drive and just clone it to the drives in the computers they're reconditioning, rather than installing everything separately and repeatedly.
    I think version 6 of AppleWorks runs under both OS 9 and OS X natively. If you have an earlier version, I'm not sure whether it's a free downloadable upgrade or whether you have to pay for it.
    I'm sure the card reader works fine, although you could network the two computers together with an ethernet cable and create a small network. With two computers you just need a crossover cable to create a crossover network:
    If you're thinking of keeping your iMac, that may be a better long term solution. You could then use the iMac as your OS 9 machine and the PowerMac as your OS X machine if you wanted to.

  • Suggestion for new mp3 player (had a creative zen mic

    Well time for me to get a new mp3 player. Because Creative wasn't very good at honouring my warranty (four players didn't work properly and they wouldn't replace the fourth) I am reluctant to get another creative. But if you guys tell me they have come along way AND I can use my previous charger with a new player, then I'll consider it.Suggestions?

    i have the zen v plus and i am quite happy with it, i just updated to the latest firmware, it charges by plugging into your computer USB (cable provided) its a budget nano competitor that has great user interface and i personally thing the design is really cool and it plays videos, but im trying to get creative to include compression video support in future firmware cause the video it supports is like 4 MB to 8 seconds of video :| the sound quality is pretty good, but then again i dont know your standards it has an inbuilt FM receiver and line in/mic recording
    im really happy with it.

    I am a new iPad owner.  How do I move my email contacts from my gmail on my PC to the iPad??

    You can't save a PDF directly to the photos app, but if you can open the PDF in the mail app and get the entire PDF to appear on the screen, take a screenshot of it and that will be saved to the photos app camera roll.
    Hold down on the sleep button and the home button at the same time briefly until you see the white flash on the screen and hear the shutter sound. That's how to take a screenshot.
    You should probably tap and hold down on the PDF in the mail app and select it to open in iBooks or another PDF app that you might have on the iPad.
