What exactly are the updates good for on an ipod

I ask because mine is windows format, and im having trouble transferring all the metadata off my ipod with senuti to a back up so that i can reformat the ipod to mac and then sync in my senuti backed up library. I was wondering if anyone knows what exactly are the updates that you get. my ipod is 1.2 5thgen.
If i were to have the latest update would i be able to see album cover art view when the ipod is plugged into itunes? I noticed that i can see that view in library mode but not in ipod mode. (my pod isnt synced)...
so what are these updates good for?

hey thanks for your reply.
I do have it set to manual and i can see the art on the ipod by itself, but even with manual transfer itunes wont let me view the artwork modes unless i am playing off my computers library (which doesn't have the songs on my ipod on it). I called apple earlier today and some tech support guy claimed that itunes does not support this feature. Is this correct? can anyone out there see artwork modes on an unsynced ipod through itunes?

  • What exactly are the cron scripts doing?

    Hi,
    Hope the subject says it all: I have searched but not found a detailed explanation as what the cron scripts (daily, weekly, monthly) actually do, and if the utilities (Onyx, Cocktail, Xupport, etc) are doing exactly the same.
    Can someone point to a site or explain?
    TIA
    Dan

    Hi Dan,
    (in addition to Barry's reply)
    Yes,
    1) running the Daily, the Weekly and the Monthly tasks manually with an utility, or
    2) running them yourself with the
    sudo periodic daily
    sudo periodic weekly
    sudo periodic monthly
    Terminal commands
    (or this one: sudo periodic daily weekly monthly), or
    3) leaving your computer running 24/7/365 so that they run automatically,
    all three ways do exactly the same thing.
    --> To see what they do exactly, the best way is to open Console, and in the /var/log section, look for "daily.out", "weekly.out" and "monthly.out".
    What exactly are the "cron scripts" doing?
    (Periodic tasks)
    In Console, you'll find a lot of different files that grow with more and more information every minute, even every second for some of them.
    The three Periodic tasks regularly rearrange them and compresses them so that they don't take too much disk space.
    They also rebuild some system database so that the data never gets unusable by the system.

  • What Systems are the Pros Using for Premier, After Effects, and SpeedGrade?

    I bought the full Creative Cloud in hopes of making a career for myself in audio/visual editing. The problem is, my system doesn't seem to be able to handle the software, particularly when changing back and forth between the three programs mentioned above. Beyond that, my first project failed to export properly. Moreover, all throughout its development the system lagged badly. And this is after having followed all the preferences recommendations available in the Adobe's tutorials and elsewhere on the Web.
    Here's my system:
    SYX-P67A-C43: Intel Core i7 2600 (an 8-core unit) at 3.4GHz, with 8 Gigs of RAM (soon to be 16) with a GTX 550 NVidia Card, 1Gig of RAM.
    As you can see, this is far in excess of what Adobe claims to be the minimum system requirements. It's obviously NOT.
    What systems are the Pros using (like the guys in the tutorials) for Premier, After Effects, and SpeedGrade? Give me the exact machines with all the specs so I can price one up.

    ...although a little " old" now.....the fundamentals of your machine are still OK to get started IF you : 1. INCREASE your system memory to the full 32 GB....should make a BIG difference in performance.....8 GB is NOT enough, it will HINDER performance. 2. OVERCLOCK your CPU !!!.....many owners of your CPU have been safely running at 4.5 Ghz or HIGHER...some at 4.8 Ghz !!! This OC will make a DRAMATIC improvement  as  CPU speed is a huge factor in performance. 3. Improve your video card to a new NVidia 970 with 4 GB of video memory. 4. Check and MAKE SURE the power supply in your machine is ADEQUATE to handle everything, esp. if you overclock the CPU....generally 850 to 1,000 watts of a quality make is good. 5. Use a fast storage system...that means a SATA III SSD as your "C" drive, ( boot drive), being a Crucial M550 series,( or, M600 series), OR, a Samsung 850 Pro series SSD, ( more expensive). Other SSDs are NOT recommended, only these two makes are recommended for technical reasons. On this "C" drive, you should have Operating system, Programs, and Windows page file ONLY !! Your "D" drive can be ANOTHER single SSD to be used as a "cache drive" for all the previews, media cache, and cache files that Premier Pro creates PLUS, it can ALSO serve as the "Global Performance cache" used in After Effects. All your media and project files can go on your "E" drive. HERE you would have LIMITED OPTIONS because your motherboard only has TWO SATA III ports, ( which would already be used b the "C" and "D" SSDs). You NOW have only 4 SATA II ports left ......you COULD RAID 0 four 1 TB HDDs off these ports and have a 4TB backup drive connected to one of your TWO USB 3 external ports.....any DVD or Blue-ray can ALSO go on an external port.
    However, if you are into spending REAL MONEY !!!.....Go Haswell E and X99 all the way !!...THAT will give you great performance !!

  • What exactly ARE the .pkg files that collect in the 'Receipts' folder?

    Hi there all.
    Those .pkg files that collect in HDD>Library>Receipts. What exactly ARE these packages for? How do they tie in with Disk Utility's 'Repair permissions' option? Why do we need to keep them?
    It's all Unix to me ;0)

    I used to delete .pkg files after I'd installed an application. I thought i was just the electronic equivalent of throwing away the empty box after I'd bought something.
    The "cardboard box" icon encouraged me to think that.
    Then someone said you should never throw away those.pkg files.
    So I stopped.
    But the only thing that has ever happened is that during permissions repair, I get a few lines here and there that say "could not repair permissions".
    I have experienced no other problems of any kind over about the last 2 years. All applications running normally, nothing weird happening.

  • Are the Imacs good for Graphic Design/Illustration work?

    I work as a digital illustrator so I spend all day at a monitor. I'm thinking of replacing my powerbook and am leaning towards a 20" Imac.
    Does anyone else here use their Imac for professional graphic design or illustration work? How does it measure up?
    I've seen many posts about poor screen quality. Should I steer clear of the Imac, or are the screens adequate for design work? At the moment I use a 17" Apple studio display (the old stripey framed kind) which is fine for my needs. How does the Imac screen compare to this?
    Is it easy to connect an external monitor (I'd use my Apple Studio Display as a 2nd screen) and can you set them up so they create a giant screen area - i.e. not just 'mirrored'? I already have a VGA to DVI adaptor so presumably this is all I'd need to hook up my 2nd screen?
    Is the 24" Imac screen quality much better than the 20"?
    Sorry, so many questions! Any advice or opinions much appreciated - Many thanks.

    To answer your first question yes they are great for digital illustration. However this will depend on how color accurate your work requires. The only downside I have found with the 20" iMacs is narrow viewing angles. This will be nothing new to you since you have the older 17" studio display. The 24" iMacs are all around absolutely stunning and have much better viewing angles however I have seen a lot of them(including mine) that have some degree of uneven back lighting. If you live anywhere near an Apple store or reseller I would recommend that you go into the store and actually use both of the machines for some period of time and see for yourself how you like it. Bring some of your illustrations from home on a flash drive to see how they look. Otherwise IMO these machines are superb. I love my 24" and it runs CS3 Apps amazingly fast.
    If your 17" studio display has the ADC(Apple Digital Connector) then you will have to purchase the power supply adapter to make it work. If you are unsure if it qualifies or not just look and see if your display has it's own power plug. If not then you will need this adapter for $99. IMO it's not worth it as you could put the $100 bucks toward a new display.

  • What units are the frequency values for the filter VI's in?

    Yesterday I was messing around w/ the butterworth filter and wanted to filter out low end noise < 30 Hz from my daq inputs.  I put in 30 for the frequency and it didn't work the way I explected.  Are the input units for frequency Hz?  I ended up messing around w/ the value until I put in 0.5 and it worked properly.

  • Direct Access Management Servers, what are the entry good for?

    In the advanced Direct Access setup wizard you have the ability to enter your management servers. I haven't been able to find an explanation of why, what is it good for? If I understand everything correct DA gives full access to the subnet so why is it of
    interest to list some servers as "management servers"?

    Hi,
    Management servers are servers that you are able to access from the da client Before logged on as a user.
    Your domain controllers are by default infrastructure servers, but in many cases you want to add for example SCCM, NAP and other servers to be accessable prior logon.
    If you are using the manage-out functionality in DirectAccess, and want to access a client prior anyone is logged on, the management server is also needed there.

  • What Vaio Models Are The Updated Drivers For Windows 10 Going To Be Compatible With?

    I have a Sony Vaio (Model Number: VPCEJ16FX) and am wondering what models of Vaio will be supported by the updated drivers?

    I understand that Sony is not to support endless models of the computers that have been placed by them out on the open market, however Microsoft itself has found a need to include windows 7 computers within their list of computers eligible for a free upgrade. As such, when Sony tells us that they will not participate in the upgrade, they essentially tell me that if they create a product that fails, that they will not support it at all, and leave all their loyal customers to fend for themselves. I have been a long time supporter of Sony and have unbelieveably been an ambassador for their company, for years since I was a child, I owned Sony Walkmen, minidisc players, DVD players, televisions, ALL OF MY COMPUTERS EVER WERE SONY, sony rewards, sony wheelers (wheel of fortune) club, Countless car stereos, home stereos, Sony dream machine alarm clocks in every room, playstation, PS2, PS3, periferals, cases, Imagestation, Sony eMarker, many of which have failed, and we accepted those failures in fact and still continued on supporting your innovation and knowhow because you continued support or somehow some way still found a way to make things right, KEEPING OUR LOYALTY!!!! And now we find ourselves here, a company that's failing little by little, when I see that they do not support drivers for computers they built NOT THAT LONG AGO, and which Microsoft themselves will support, it makes me wonder. Why should I continue with a brand that keeps facing triumphant failures and doesn't seem to care anymore about the people reliying on what products the company has put out on the market? Is this the beginning of a trend we will see from now on? I REALLY REALLY hope not. You make great products but when something goes wrong if you do not support it and make it right, you're worthless. Why? Because something eventually goes wrong with even the best of things, and you need to learn again how to make things right. Windows 10 has been in the works for some time now, and I know that Sony still had access to developer models for almost a year now, and yet still we have to wait another month. I expect nothing but the best from this company, because they set the standard so high. Glass half full, you built me a fantastic computer that still works great everyday! You need to support and recognise that, use it as a testament, an advertisement that you build great things, keep your flame alive, keep supporting, improving, developing and innovating, and you will find your numbers will turn around. I hope to see some Win 10 drivers, patches, SOMETHING available in the not too distant future that somewhat mirrors what microsoft is ready to support. Thank you. 

  • What exactly does the AppleCare cover for MacBook Pro with Retina Display?

    I purchased the extended protection plan for my MacBook Pro with Retina Display 15" and my question is what exactly does it cover in what kind of situations (i.e. viruses, damaged ports, damaged charger, etc.)? I want to be able to take full advantage of the protection plan since it was a pretty big whole in my wallet.

    AppleCare covers all the problems you have with your MacBook Pro with Retina display and the peripherals which came with it (your charger) if you have a hardware problem that you didn't cause. For example, after 2 or 3 years and 1000 charges, OS X says that your battery has to be replaced: in this case, you have to pay for the battery, because batteries have got a lifetime, and Unibody Macs batteries have got an average lifetime of about 1000 charges.
    However, if the RAM gets damaged and you haven't done anything to cause it, you will get your computer repaired or replaced for free. AppleCare in a MacBook Pro with Retina display is very important, because near all the parts are soldered into the logic board and repairs are expensive

  • What else are sample CDs good for?

    Newbie question here. This is what I know about software samplers like EXS24. You have sample collections that you load into the sampler, and can play back the samples with your MIDI controller. You can take individual drum sounds (kicks, snares, etc.) from sample CDs, built your own drum kit for MIDI programming, and save them as custom kits. Samplers like EXS24 have presets that come with the program that have both drum kits, pianos, strings, synths, etc.
    My question is, in order to get a bigger library of sounds and instruments, what exactly do you do with the other components of sample CDs? If they come with individual sounds, that makes sense—you put 20 of those together as a custom drum kit. But what about the strings, Rhodes, piano, basses, etc.? They usually come in loops and you’re supposed to chop them up into individual samples? I see the use of that as well, but what if you like the way a particular Rhodes sounds and want a complete scale across the keyboard—C1, C2, C3, etc? Can EXS24 do that, and if so, does it ruin the musical integrity of the sample to have it run across octaves?
    I do know there are sample libraries like Steinberg’s The Grand, which have all the individual notes (C1, C2, C3, etc.) as samples. Is it just that a sample library is what I am looking for, and a sample CD is more limited in what it can do? Thanks in advance.

    a piano shifted up 5 semitones
    usually sounds worse than a synth waveform shifted to
    the same amount
    Acoustic piano purists bring this up a lot. A piano's (actually all stringed instruments') harmonics change from one note to the next, and even in the same note at different velocities; because the string tightens when it bends. Shifting the sample up one semitone shifts all the harmonics up by the same proportion, and they don't line up with the actual harmonics.
    Interestingly, an octave on a piano is not exactly one musical octave; they're tuned so that the clearest harmonics are an octave apart. That's why piano tuners make so much money I guess.
    A synth oscillator is an electric circuit that does not change its resonant frequency when it gets louder, at least if you believe the math. So shifting the fundamental by one octave will shift all the harmonics by one octave as well, and since this is what transposing a sample does, it doesn't sound as bad.
    I realize this doesn't answer the original question but it may shed some light on the issue if anyone is interested in building a sample collection.
    I have some sample cd's with really awesome moog and oberheim samples on them. Unfortunately they recorded some extraordinarily cheesy phrases with them and didn't give me any raw notes, so they're almost useless.

  • What exactly is the Default Image for?

    I have finished my first iPhone app and am planning to upload it soon to the app store. One of the many questions I have encountered is the Default Image, I know how to create it, just make a screenshot in Organiser, and then use the Save as Default Image option, but what is this? Is it a splashscreen? I have looked at a lot of the apps on my iPhone that I have downloaded over time but none of them seem to have anything I could recognise as a default image, usually they just open to the main screen.

    Hi Copernicium, and welcome to the Dev Forum!
    Yes, you can think of the Default image (usually Default.png) as a splash screen and you've probably been seeing that image in most of your downloaded apps without knowing it.
    The purpose of that image is to provide something other than a black screen when the app is loading. I.e. you don't bring it up with your code, the system looks for Default.png when the user touches your icon on the home page. If the file is found, the system displays that image until your app is up and running.
    You're free to use almost any image you want as the Default, but the guidelines recommend an image that transitions smoothly into your first screen, or better yet an image which is identical to the first image your code brings up. When you're unaware of the transition from the default image to the application launch, that generally means the developer has done a good job.
    The purpose of the +Save As Default Image...+ button in the Organizer is to make it easy to install your startup screen image as the Default. If your startup image is static it's easy. You just capture that screen, hit Save As Default and you're done. Note that if your screen capture includes the status bar, it will be masked by the real status bar when the Default image is displayed. So just two clicks in the organizer can produce and install a Default screen that's identical to the actual startup screen.
    If your startup image is dynamic (e.g. the "real" splash screen), but always begins with the same view, you just need to set a breakpoint in your code so you can capture that very first image.
    And yes, you'll have a better app if you add Default.png to the bundle before you upload to the Store. When last I looked, that wasn't a requirement, and there are still lots of apps that load with a black screen. But I wouldn't be surprised if Default.png is now or soon will be a requirement. It certainly helps to placate the user when your load time is anything over the absolute minimum.
    Hope that answers your questions!

  • What exactly are the "Share to YouTube" Settings?

    Hi-
    I'm just curious as to what the settings are in FCS 3 (or QT X) for Sharing to YouTube. What I mean by this is, what are the equivalent Compressor or QuickTime Export settings that this feature uses?
    In QT 7, I would normally export as an H.264 wrapped MPEG-4 file using a 2500 data rate so that my videos would appear on YouTube as HD, and in relatively great quality without a large overall file size.
    Other suggestions always had me converting to a QT mov file (H.264) with 2500 data rate.
    I want to know what is the best and easiest way to get to YouTube so that I can inform others of the proper steps to take. The Share to YouTube function would be easiest now, but am still curious about the settings that it uses.
    In a related note, the Share to YouTube feature is not letting me use the 3-D tags (yt3d:enable=true yt3d:aspect=16:9) because it contains tags that are not letters or numbers. Is there a way around this?

    Great, thanks David. So whenever I see an export template setting out of something, it's pretty much the same setting as in Compressor? Like when I do an "Export to Web" from QT 7 and choose the iPhone preset, that is the setting that they have in Compressor?
    Also, any idea about the "TAG" problem in FCP?

  • Where are the updates located for Software Update?

    I was downloading the recent software update (Ilife support, digital raw compatibility) but closed my mac while it was in the middle of downloading. I opened it up later and tried to download the updates, but now it says that there's an error. I assume that I have to find the updates themselves and delete them, but i dont seem to have the "updates" folder in the library? Would appreciate help, thanks!

    the updates downloaded via SU are put in /Library/Updates before they are applied. but they are automatically deleted from there after they are applied. so look in that folder. what do you have there? btw, that's the Library at the top level of the drive, not in your home directory.
