Cant' figure how to hook to internet connection

My dad has cancer in his hips and can't get around very well. He has been given a laptop to put his cad pro program on it is this Dell latitude cpi-r series the problem is there is no cd drive and it is also windows 98. the software is compatible with the windows 98 but not the vista that I have on my computer. I have a flash drive and was hoping to transfer the information thru this device. keep in mind i am no computer guru by any means. as i said i have windows and i am sure there is a way to update this software I just figured it would be so much easier to do this at work where i still have xp and is also compatible. Now for my question how do I hook the computer up to the internet for one thing there is a 56k global modem pc card but i can't find a actual port to hook up. I have a wireless router and tried that also with no luck. I am needing to download a driver for the cruzer flash can you help?

It seems you have several questions. Some programs must be installed from a cd some don't.

1. You can try copying the contents of cd and pasting it to the flash drive then to the laptop into a single folder and run the install/setup program from there. This may or may not work.

2. You can install Magic Disc to your computer and the laptop.
With this program you can copy a cd or dvd into one file.
Then this program can take the file and load it as a cd rom drive.
You can download the program from this link.
http://www.magiciso.com/tutorials/miso-magicdisc-overview.htm

Once you have the program installed you should see you have a new dvd-drive in my computer and a new icon on the taskbar. The icon will have a hand holding a cd disk.
Right Click on it and select make cd/dvd image.
Select the drive where you have the cad cd.
Select where you want it saved on your computer. Make sure you click on the folder type a filename and click save or it will put the file in some strange place, and make sure you take down where it saved it to.
Keep the .uif format don't change it.
No need to make a password.
Click OK
Let it do it's thing.
When it's done you will have the .uif file on your hard drive you can run as if it is a cd drive without a cd drive.
To do this right click on the magic disk icon in the taskbar and select "Virtual CD/DVD-ROM", select No Media, select mount.
In the "Mount CD/DVD" window select the .uif image file you created.
The cd file should load just as if you had inserted a cd into a real cd drive.
To do this on the laptop first copy the installation file for magic disc to the laptop then intall it. Then copy the .uif file to the laptop and mount it the same way I said on xp.

I've use this program a ton and it works great. My kids can't ruin cd's this way. :)

Note: If your flash drive isn't big enough you can use a program like winrar or file dicer to break the .uif file into smaller pieces and move it over piece by piece.

How do i use internet on my smart tv


There are two possible ways. Use your laptop and connect it to the TV so that the TV displays the Internet, or use a device from to hook the Internet up directly to the Internet. The first is great if you use a wireless mouse and keyboard. The second makes the Internet much harder to use as they till insist you use a "remote" to move around....I hate it!.

The device is around $35.00 while a cable to hook up your laptop video port is about $15.00. Of course, if you are using you laptop to cruise the Internet on your TV....you can't use it to cruise the Internet at your desk...so there is that downside to be considered.

good luck

How to creat hiphop beat


I will walk you through standard hip hop beat construction and give you some sound development and production tips. There are two basic parts to a typical hip hop song: The Beat and the Vocals. Each consists of several tracks. While this article focuses on the construction of beats, lets lead off with a description of all the elements of a hip hop song so you can see how the beat fits .
This is the most important term to understand in Hip Hop construction, cause if you don't know it, you'll never understand what people are talking about. The Beat is basically, the whole song minus the vocals. It usually includes the following:
MIDI Drum patterns or audio drum loops, which comprise the complete drum tracks
A Bassline (MIDI sequence typically)
Supporting Orchestration (could be synth pads, string sections, horns)
Dubs and snips (samples that accent and give character)

Laying Down A Melody- This is where most hip hop beat-makers have the most trouble. Because most eat makers can't play the keys. For starters, you might want to learn basic keyboard skills. The major thing you need to learn are, major and minor scales. After you learn that, try and do different combinations and patterns with the drum beat you have made. Use an instrument like, a lead guitar, horns, clav, something that will stand out. Your melody can be however you want it, but for starters, you could do a 4 bar melody, or an 8 bar melody.

Hardware samplers have been making Hip Hop beats since the beginning. Those outfitted with "pads", like the MPC and MV8000, are convenient to use. However, software samplers, like Kontakt 2, Battery, Halion, Gigastudio are just as good and can offer more flexibility if your computer is strong enough to run one inside a sequencer. You can use a control pad surface like the Akai MPD16 to give you some hardware control over your software.
Hardware or software synthesizers can be used for constructing basslines and other elements of orchestration.

The Bounce- Now that you made you're beat, Its the hottest hip hop beat ever, you want to put it on cd or upload it to the internet. When you're exporting a beat for cd, Use .wav file. 44.1 16bit. If you want to upload to the internet use, 320kbps (the highest .mp3 quality) or 128kbps. Most websites wont accept 320kbps because the file size is too big. So go with 128kbps.

If you're running a wireless network, make sure all computers on the network use the same network name, for instance "My network" Home Network etc. one can't say "MS HOME" and the computer you're using say "My Network"
