Luddite

Recommended Posts

I have succesfully managed to download 'Real player' onto my work computer.

I have two questions.

1) Can I store the records I manage to download (about 10% so far) anywhere? And is it easy to get them, like a juke box.

2) I am changing jobs, and therefore computer, although I will still be at same company, using same email and packages etc. Does the 'Real Player', go with me to my new computer, or stay with this computer.

Sorry if they seem silly questions, but I see computers as a working necessity, and a wonderful link to sites like this.

I generally have absolutely no interest in their workings, so switch off immediately someone starts getting technical.

I promise to listen to any advice in this instance.

TIA

Mikey

Firstly No the Real Player stays with the PC

secondly when you get your new PC you may want to consider downloading Jet Audio instead ask Chalky it's much better ;o))

Thirdly i would save all your downloaded music in a file in My Docs/My Music you can then sort them however you want and transfer them into your media player to set up playlists etc

Fourthly get a grip you gloucestershire carrot cruncher ;o)))))

Firstly - Darn it

secondly - I will do that. After I have settled in. Probably best not to abuse the system until maybe the 2nd or third day ;-)

Thirdly - Sounds complicated. Is My docs on the computer or with the download? I really have no clue as to how these things work.

Fourthly - Where do you think my red hair came from? The milkman??

GRR had to stop playing a track I had downloaded. Tried downloading it again, no joy. Went to real player. It is stuck there and wont play again.

#### it. I'm going to stick to buying the ####ing songs.

I will see if the office budget will stump up for a record player and ear phones.

Firstly LOL

Secondly are you saving the files you download in a file specified by you? or are you just downloading them to a default temp file?

My Documents is a folder on your C drive that you can save all the stuff that is just yours rather than shared documents etc you can easily set up sub folders within My Docs should already have a My Music folder in there as well as a My Pictures etc etc

Thirdly do work really allow you on a computer LOL ;o)))

Fourthly if you are still stuck PM me and i'll give you my phone number and i can talk you through it

Fifthly i though you had gone to bed with wet hair and the next day it had gone rusty??

get yourself a copy of cool edit from the web

you can then play tracks through real player once , record them in cool edit and turn them into mp3 format so they will play on any player ie winamp , windows media , music match jukebox etc

then save them to disc or pc or whatever

Thats nice innit, I dont even know who that man is! lol

As for being a luddite, you cant be worse than me. I downloaded Realplayer the other day because my computer made me. It took an hour and I still dont know why. Mind you Ive been lost in the forum for 3 days now and I cant find the same thing twice. A tackle n tools section would come in handy for me too, and all those closet luddites who pretend they know what there doin.
