  1. Add Your Comments, Request, General Discussion, and so on.

  2. I want to hear some of the Inspector west stuff on my I-Pod (5th Gen) but don't understand how to download via I-Tunes. What format should be chosen, what is meant by 'embed' etc.
    Your help for a computer illiterate person (Windows 7 (64 bit) ) is involved.
    Please help,

  3. @Robin

    MP3 is generally the format you may find here; to embed simply means code that will put a player or other material from this page onto your own website.

    I've read there is a drag-n-drop feature in iTunes preferences that allows you to drag and drop MP3 files from Windows to iTunes. You're looking for your iPod to show up as a drive when plugged into your computer.

    Similar to my Blackberry phone, iTunes relies heavily upon properly formated tags (ID3,etc.) so that you can find the files on your iPod once cataloged - otherwise they may show up in an (Unknown), unsorted listing.

    [This should not be quite so complicated, and you'd think if you transferred the file to iPod that you'd be able to access it by the same name as you saw on your computer. This isn't the case, as a tag system "catalogs" audio files as Artist>Album>Title, etc using the contents of the file "tag"]

    Hope this helps?

  4. just found ya ,,, love dat ol tyme countrythanks joeeastern shore  va

  5. LOVE old time radio shows!!!!

  6. Love your shows. Unfortunately, for the past two weeks or so, the shows are turning off about ten minutes in to them. Doesn't matter what show, it does it to them all. Sometimes twice a show. Does this on my laptop and my desktop. Never did it before.

    Hope this isn't a permanent problem.

  7. I am trying to join the site, but not having much luck. I clicked the "Join" button, but received this message:

    "We're sorry...

    We were unable to handle your request. Please try again or return a bit later."

    If anyone can help, it would be appreciated! Thanks!
