Q: Solved: iTunes Technical Question...

When a song is played in iTunes where does it load to?

Obviously the song is on the hard-rive but does it constantly read it off the hard-rive? Or does it throw it into the page file or ram?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Solved: iTunes Technical Question...

Players usually buffer at least part of what they are playing in RAM to insure a constant data stream and smooth playback. Some of that could end up as paged if the OS needed the RAM for something else, but probably not very often, if at all.

Say I have a song with a 128bitrate, remove it and than add the same one with a 320bitrate...

Will my itunes automatically re-sync the higher bitrate song to the ipod? Or will the ipod just skip it beacause the title and artist are the same?

Also how would this scenero work with joint-stero and stero?

Can I sync back from my ipod (nano 6th gen.) to iTunes?

When preparing to have my hard drive replaced I thought I saved my main itunes playlist correctly, but apparently did not.

When I reinstalled itunes and imported the file I had saved, it only created one tenth of the songs I had on it initially. Most are on my ipod but I want to be sure I won't lose them if I connect it to the computer again. Actually think I did that once - I use the setting about syncing only what's checked and had changed what was checked. Got a shock when I synced next and most of my music disappeared off my ipod. Obviously I don't want that to happen again.

A:Solved: iTunes/iPod - sync question


Use this program to get all the songs off of your iPod, then simply drag and drop the files into iTunes.

Can I change my Toshiba Satellite L305D-S5914 built with a AMD Sempron 3600+ CPU to a AMD Athlon 64/X2 CPU. Toshiba Tech support tells me that the processor is soldered and built into the motherboard but it is not. Both processors are socket AM2

A:Technical Question

The only hardware upgrade that you can usually make to a laptop is to add more RAM - if it supports adding more.

From what I've read so far, that model laptop comes with the AMD Sempron 3600+ 2.00 GHz processor and supports up to 4 GB of DDR2 PC2-6400(DDR2-800) RAM.

I used to find Windows Media Player had a useful automatic cleanup option when 5 or more mp3s were found in the library without an actual mp3 file to relate too....

I want to know why now when i have 7 or 10 tracks that have been removed by myself, when i go to play them (forgetting i removed them) do i no longer get the option pop up asking if i would like WMP to cleanup the library!?!?

I am using a program (which I didn't write) which creates a database driven website. It was working well, but suddenly, when I try to add new records, I get errors. I have the system on a WIN2000 server, and also mirrored on my WIN98 system at home.

On the WIN2000 server, I get this error message: "ERROR: Multiple-step OLE DB operation generated errors. Check each OLE DB status value, if available. No work was done."

On the WIN98 system, I get this error: "Errors Occurred"

In both cases, the record does get added, but it cannot be edited - only deleted.

Since I couldn't reach the guy who wrote the program I was using, I did some research, and found this page over at Microsoft:


It described this error exactly. It said I needed to upgrade my MDAC and JET versions to make these errors go away. I don't really know what MDAC and JET are, but I found them for download on Microsoft's site.

Using my WIN98 system as the guinea pig, I downloaded and installed MDAC 2.6 and JET 4.0 - the most recent versions of both. Needless to say, it didn't fix the problem.

The only thing that changed on my WIN98 system is that instead of getting the "Errors Occurred" message, I now get the much longer error message that my server returns.

I haven't tried upgrading the server because - well - I'm afraid to touch the server, especially when the fix didn't work on... Read more

A while back, I asked a DSL provider about the distance betwween my house and the nearest DSL central office, which is about 6 miles away. Here's the partial response I got:

If the form says you qualify then you should be no more than 18,000 feet from the central office in your area. However, that is 18,000 feet in actual line length, not in walking or driving distance from the CO.Click to expand...

Question #1: How many miles is 18,000 feet? I'm sure it's less than 6 miles.
Question #2: Why are the DSL cables so short?

Today, I ordered it anyway from my phone company, and a technician is coming later this week to install it for me.

After it's all hooked up, if it doesn't connect, I'll have to cancel the whole shebang.

I really hope it works cuz I'm getting fed up with this dialup connection on these very crappy voice-grade phone lines.

I have a client who needs BOTH some PHP and some SSI code in a webpage. The filetype needs to remain as SHTML. I tried making an SHTML page that included PHP, but what happens when I modify the .htaccess file is that one or the other gets done, but not both.

For example, I used this in the .htaccess:

AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .shtml
AddType text/x-server-parsed-html .shtml
DirectoryIndex index.shtml index.php index.html

That does the PHP coding just fine in the shtml file, but not the
<!--#exec cgi="/cgi-bin/Tracking/ax.cgi" --> SSI code
line in the shtml page.

When I switch the first two lines, it does the SSI, but not the PHP.

How can I get it to do both the SSI *and* the PHP?

I bought a new Compaq Presario laptop, and the specs say it has 256mb of PC2100, (266MHZ) DDR-SDRAM, with a max capacity of 1G. So I went out and bought 1G (2-512mb modules, same specs). When I opened up the memory compartment and removed the memory the laptop came with, it was marked 256mb, DDR, 333 mhz, PC 2700.

My questions:

Are the two types of memory interchangeable?
Can using PC 2700 333 mhz harm the computer if it is meant to run PC2100, 266 mhz?
If I use the PC2100, 266mhz, will my computer run slower?
What should I do?

Greetings, helpful and wonderful people.

I currently have a 2x2gb setup in 2 of my 4 DIMM slots on my motherboard. The timing is 8-8-8-24. The speed is DDR3 @ 1600MHz, and it is a matched pair. They run at 1.65V,

I am looking to expand this memory, but the pair I have picked out to add to the second bank (the remaining two DIMM slots) has differences in the size, voltage and timing. I have tried my best to research this problem before creating a thread but haven't found an answer detailed enough to explain why this would or would not work. Anyways, here are the details on the second pair.

2x4gb, same brand (Crucial). Timing 10-10-10-28. Speed DDR3 @ 1600MHz, matched pair. Running at 1.5V.

The three differences are the size (4gb vs 2gb per module), the timing (CAS latency 10 vs CAS latency 8), and the voltage (1.5V vs 1.65V).

The motherboard can handle all the specs of the possible new pair. Crucial's website confirms compatibility by suggesting this pair with its scan utility.

HOWEVER, my question is: What will happen in my BIOS configuration when I put this new pair in the second bank?
1. What will Dual-Channel, what will not, and why?
2. Will I have to manually reduce the latency of the second pair, or will I have to manually increase the latency of the first pair, in order to make them match? Will this result in a major speed decrease?
3. Will the difference in voltage be modified automatically? To which? (1.65v or 1.5v?)
4. Is it actually worth it to kee... Read more

Hello you smart computer techies!!! I need a little assistance. I hate Norton as it was hogging up my PC. So I uinstalled it (via the norton uninstall) and went out and bought PC-cillin 2005. I installed it and everything was going fine until I attempted to connect to the internet (via IE). No internet. No email connection either (makes sense since IE and OE 6 are connected to each other. Aren't they?) Anywhoo, I uninstalled PC-cillin pdq, and viola Internet working just fine.

Called PC-cillin cust. spt. a very nice Hindu lady finally helped me disable the 'Personal Firewall' component of the new software after we reinstalled it. She assesed the problem is with my Internet provider. I was asked to call them and ask three specific questions 1. what port number am i using, 2. do they have a firewall up?, 3. any specific password or setting?

Internet provider was very perturbed at first with my three little questions insisting that the problem is with PC-cillin software not with them (the service provider). they answered my questions though, --, no, no.

When I go to my BIOS, I see two hard drives: P0 and P2.
Let's call them as Disk1 and Disk2.

Regularly, I am booting from Disk2.
(By the way, one of the disks is dedicated to operating systems, and the other is dedicated to libraries. I don't know which one is which, since they are identical drives, but as I said regularly I am booting from Disk2).

When I have a boot problem such as "Insert correct media device", I am putting the system repair disc, and (after booting the system repair disc from cd/dvd drive) it gives me the error that "this repair disc is not compatible with your version".
But, when I change the first drive from Disk2 to Disk1 in BIOS, it doesn't give that error and shows me the system repair options.

What does this mean?
Why it is happening like that?
Does it mean that if I remove Disk1 physically or disable it, I can never use any system repair disc?
How can I solve this problem?
What are my options if a system repair disc gives me the "not compatible" error?

A:Technical Boot Question (2 Disks)

It sounds like your boot files are on disk 1, P0, and your OS is on disk 2, P2. You need to have a look in disk management to see whats what. If that is true, you won't be able to boot up to your OS if you remove disk 1.

It says "No Data"
The card is official. I've tried other slots. Other mem cards work, tried turning it off and on, etc. We have a hunch that the problem could be that the contacts on the memory card have been misalligned, however there is no damage we can see without taking it apart.
Is it possible to take it apart or are there rivets or anything in the back end of the memory card that would hold it together?

A:Technical Question about ComboFix and the AMVO malware

amvo.exe) is a backdoor Trojan that is installed with other malicious files. Backdoor Trojans, IRCBots and Infostealers are very dangerous because they provide a means of accessing a computer system that bypasses security mechanisms and steal sensitive information like passwords, personal and financial data which they send back to the hacker. Remote attackers use backdoor Trojans as part of an exploit to gain unauthorized access to a computer and take control of it without your knowledge. Read Danger: Remote Access Trojans.If your computer was used for online banking, has credit card information or other sensitive data on it, you should immediately disconnect from the Internet until your system is cleaned.

You should change each password by using a different computer and not the infected one. If not, an attacker may get the new passwords and transaction information.

I understand USB flash drives are composed of two components, the memory part that retains the data and the controller that regulates the writing and retrieval of the data. I alo understand there are different types of the controller components.

Also, I've learned that some machines will see just about any USB flash drive; but, I occasionally see some machines that will recognize one of my flash drives and not the other. I suspect this is because of the different controllers in each of the USB flash drives.

Here's the question: Is there a way to determine which USB flash drives contain which controller components?

The reason I'm asking is that I have two USB flash drives, a 16-Gig and a 32-Gig. The 16- is getting too small and I'm going to retire it in favor of a new 32- or 64-Gig and I don't want to end up with two that have the same controller component and then run into a machine that will see neither.

Yesterday morning I restarted my Dell Inspiron 6400 to finish installing an update to my virus protection software (McAfee Plus), and as the computer was shutting down my external HD became disconnected from the laptop. Since then, however, my computer has failed to start. It gets to the very first screen, with the manufacturer's logo and progress bar, then moves to an error page.

On that page, "Windows Boot Manager" informs me that failed to start. "A recent hardware or software change might be the cause." To fix the problem, they recommend I insert my Windows installation disc, follow the repair process, etc.

I do not have this DVD, as it never shipped with my laptop. They recommend, as an alternative, to contact my computer manufacturer. I've done so, and checked through Dell's support site. Their FAQs told me to contact their support department. However, my warranty has also ended. Simply to contact them to find out what my recourse is will cost $49. I'd prefer not to do that unless I know they'll send me some sort of repair DVD.

So, a few questions, more to your experiences than to the software itself:

1. Is it likely that Dell will provide a Windows Vista DVD to a computer past warranty? I doubt it sincerely, but perhaps there's a chance.

2.If that doesn't work, I presume I'll have to buy Vista. Being as I had Home Basic before, would I be able to purchase and use an upgrade disc, or would I have t... Read more

Hi there, I have a T400 running Windows XP Professional that's in pristine condition, that I'd like to upgrade to Win 7 Prof + an SSD + 8GB of RAM.  It came with a Window's 7 upgrade DVD (and companion DVD) with instructions that note I will need to do a clean install since I have XP. I specifically had this system downgraded from Vista when it was shipped to me in 2010.  The Upgrade DVD says "Win Vista Bus to Win 7 Pro UPG Fulfill Lenovo" on it. I'm okay with the clean install since I'm running XP, but my question is: if I'm already going  to swap out the HDD to an SSD and I need to do a clean install anyway, can I just remove my old HDD, F1 boot from the disk and then install Windows 7 straight to my new SSD?  Or will the "Upgrade" version of Windows 7 look for something on the old HDD to give it permission to install? Thanks for any advice.  So essentially

Hi folks,

I'm having trouble with a couple of technicalities and was wondering whether you would be kind enough to try and help out...

The first is that my MP4 player isn't recognised when I plug it in any more. I've checked the wire and USB socket are fine and ran through info on the manufacturer's site, but it still won't "Beep-beep" on plugging it in and let me sync new songs to it with Windows Media Player because the device isn't found (bizarrely, it does make a "Beep" sound when I unplug it). Also, for some odd reason, the device has started appearing in a box titled "Safely Remove Hardware" (perhaps this is relevant to situation).

The second issue is even more of a problem the fact my computer won't play DVDs any more. Players no longer recognise DVD information and a box pops up on WMP (the player I use most often) after a while saying "DVD Playback Graph has not been built yet".

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Now I have a technical question about how TeamViewer works. It connects to remote systems across the internet not by an IP number that I enter but rather by an arbitrary nine-digit number assigned to the system when the program is set up. It connects so quickly that I know it cannot be scanning every IP address on the 'net looking for a TeamViewer connection at every one of them. So, I have deduced that there must be a server out there somewhere that stores TeamViewer information.

I've pretty much decided that after my recent increase in work hours that it is time to treat myself to something, and I'd like to pick up a 32GB 4th-gen iPod Touch. However, I've seen enough posts regarding peoples' issues with iTunes on Windows machines, in various forums, that I'm a little leery of it.

I've had a pretty good streak of not having any problems with my computer, and I would like to keep that going.....so iPod owners out there, anything specific to watch out for? I know I would need the 64-bit version....I guess basically I'm asking if I am worrying needlessly or not....lol. I tend to over-think things sometimes, and this may well be one of those times.

A:The iTunes question......

you are overthinking this one.

itunes 10 (latest ver is 10.1.1, i think) on 64-bit is just fine - no issues.
it installs bonjour (you can disable or set the service to manual if you dont need it - you only need it for apple specific stuff, air speakers and what not) and a couple of other services and a couple of registry RUN key items (leave those since you need them for your device)
(once bonjour is disabled, restart itunes, it'll complain that it's turned off, hit ok and continue as normal, even on minor / major upgrades)

you have to install quicktime with it (which installs a qtboottask.exe in your registry RUN key - that entry you can safely delete - and go into the quicktime settings to make sure that the load in tray on windows start is disabled...something along those lines)

(you will have to re-remove that entry each time you update quicktime...)

what else... that's it. reboot is optional.

oh yeah, once you add your music into itunes, everything is selected by default. uncheck what you need and create playlists - then sync those playlists to your device to have itunes copy the music over to it.

i sync an iphone 3g and itunes is most well-behaved.
only suggestion i'd make would be about moving the folder out of 'my music' to elsewhere (which is as easy as pressing shift and launching itunes...serious)

other than that, itunes is awesome.
if you have an apple device and want to use something to sync your audio, you need itunes.
if you are us... Read more

Hi, I have just purchaced an ipod touch for my son so Im new to itunes, and I dont think I like it.

I installed itunes and it searched and transfered all my songs to itunes, but instead of keeping them all neat and tidy in the folders I had them in, it has put them all together in one list, is there a way I can have them all organised in itunes the same way I have them in 'my music'?

I've been usng MediaMonkey as my MP3 player but it breaks a lot so I'm shopping for a new program. I know nothing at all about iTunes. First of all..Is it good downloading album art, and when it does, does it embed it into the MP3file?

Can you play any of your MP3's, wherever you got them on iTunes. I mean it won't give you a hassle about digital rights and usage or copy writing will it?

Finally...Does it try to get you to sign up for paid services and stuff?

Hi, I am totally new here and have a question. When I install Itunes onto my Vista machine it makes my CD/DVD drive stop working. When I go to my device manager and look under the CD/DVD drive section...double click on it...go to the drive, there is a yellow triangle with a exclamation mark in the middle of it. Can anyone tell me why this happens?

All help is appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

That means something is missing. Try to update the driver and if that doesn't work search for them manually on the internet.

Months ago, I let someone "borrow" my iTunes library by giving her my password. I did not exactly regret it because she's a relative but how can I make sure that I am the only one authorized to access my iTunes?

What bothers me is I told her NOT to share my library with anyone, but one time, I was examining my iTunes and said that it was being accessed from 3 other computers. That really bothered me but I never confronted this person.

I just want to make sure that I am the only one who can access my iTunes library.

I have XP.

Thank you.

A:iTunes Question please - HELP

Well, of course, we don't condone the action of sharing as that is pirating. However, I'm sure you learned your lesson from the experience.

You should just change your password. If they don't have the password then they can't access your account.

I have downloaded a podcast from one of the podcasts I subscribe to. I do that by clicking on "Get".

Now I would like to download that same podcast again but don't have the option of the "Get" icon.

A:ITunes question

That's been one of the greatest flaws in iTunes for a long time now because I've had truncated downloads and iTunes thinks its got the whole thing and provides no options that I can find to download and replace the file.

You can delete or move the file in question and then close iTunes and delete the iTunes Library file, restart iTunes and let it build the library index file again and then because that file is missing, the Get button comes back and functions for a new downoad of the same file.

I just received my laptop, and I was wondering when I install my iPod and iTunes, will all my songs transfer from my iPod to my new computer, as well as information as the playcount and other things like that?

Thank you.

A:iTunes Question

I plugged my iPod into my new laptop, and it deleted all my songs. Then, I decided to plug my iPod back into my original computer, only to find that those songs were deleted too.

I still have my playlist on the other computer, so now my question is how do I transfer that playlist to my iPod?

Thanks again
