HOW DO I LOOP A SOUND FILE TO KEEP PLAYING TO THE END OF THE SLIDES WITHOUT EXTENDING THE TIME OF EACH SLIDE?


1) File > New > Presentation > Create (new presentation with all default settings)
2) Panel at right: Slide Transition > Modify Transition > Sound = "apert" (fourth in the drop down list)
You should hear a short (~2s) sound at this point, as the effect is "previewed". If you don't hear it, try the "Play" button at the bottom of the Slide Transition panel. If that doesn't work, then OOo is not able to play sounds and you have to fix that before proceeding.
3) Slide Transition > Modify Transition > Sound = "Other sound" > (select your long music file).
You may or may not hear the preview for this, it depends on whether your music file has a quiet leader at the beginning. If the audio starts right away, you should hear it. If the audio starts after 1-2s of silence, you won't hear anything.
4) Click "Slide show" (bottom of the Slide Transition panel) or F5.
You should hear the music start. It will continue to play even after you advance to the next slide (which is the black "End of show" screen. Advance again to end the show and the music should stop.

i have connected my psp to pc through data transfer usb cable, when i connect it my computer recongize the psp as a storage hardware but i cannot see the components of the psp when i open it. and wen i transfer amusic video to psp i cannot find it in the memory card. help me out


The only thing that the psp allows you to see when you plug it in is the contents of the memory card. To be able to view videos and music on the psp the mp3/mp4 files must be put in the /MUSIC/ or /VIDEO/ folders (without the / 's ) on the root of the memory card, otherwise the psp cannot see the files.

unable to put music on my mp4


The Sansa Clip can only recognize certain file formats (mp4 is not one of them). Your best bet is to only download songs that are in mp3 format. iTunes format will not work. Some WMA's will work, but others will not - it all depends on whether the WMA files has a fixed-term license or whether it has a license that allows transfer to portable devices. Songs in mp3 format will never give you trouble.

wont turn on or off


my firend had the same problem, he lost his charger, so he brought it over to my house, and it seems that it took about 7 minutes for the "e.m.h.i.m." screen to get off and actually start charging, so just plug it in and go do something to amuse yourself for about a half hour and see if anything changed from when you plugged it in, if you still need help, email me at videogamedominationmaster@yahoo.com

Hi,


Yes, you would need an iPod to RCA Cable that will connect to your iPod and to the RCA Auxilliary input of the Yamaha HTR-5790 7.1 Channels Receiver. Similar to a Cygnett Groove Transit - MP3 Phone to RCA Stereo Cable or an iPod to RCA Retractable Cable.


Good luck and kind regards.
