This is the way to get it to work!
Getting the CineDash Media Console and Launch Buttons working
If you have problems with either the CineDash Media Console or Launch buttons then you will be happy to hear that the solution for fixing these is easy!
The first thing that you will need to do is install the “Launch Manager” which can be downloaded off the Acer website. Go to www.acer.com and click the service support, then driver download. Go to your model. Download the Launch Manager here (hosted here) or go to the acer site and find it there. The filename should be “Kilimanjaro_v2.0.00_Vistax32×64_XPx32×64.zip” the version of Launch Manager under the Windows Vista operating system .This will get the Email, Web and Empowering Technology buttons working with their default settings. If you need to change what the buttons do, you can launch the application named “Launch Manager” in the start menu.
Uninstall any previous version of Launch Manager
The solution to my problem was to get the Launch Manager to run in compatibility mode for Windows Vista Service Pack 2.
Unzip. Explore the new folder and right-click Setup.exe.
To do this go to the Launch Manager Install directory (C:\Program Files\Launch Manager ), right-click on “setup.exe”, select the “troubleshoot compatibility” tab, check the “Troubleshoot program” check box and then click “The program worked in earlier versions of Windows but won’t install or run now”. Then select “Windows Vista Service Pack 2”. Then click “Start” program. Now everything should work properly! It will install. But don’t reboot yet!
Now locate and explore the freshly installed folder in your program files directory – (probably C:\Program Files (x86)\Launch Manager or C:\Program Files\Launch Manager depending on if you are running 64-bit or 32-bit)
right-click on “LManager.exe”, select the “troubleshoot compatibility” tab, check the “Troubleshoot program” check box and then click “The program worked in earlier versions of Windows but won’t install or run now”. Then select “Windows Vista Service Pack 2”. Then click “Start” program. Now everything should work properly! It will install.
Reboot and enjoy properly synced volume, and fully functioning buttons.

I read somewhere else on a forum that getting your battery out for a few seconds and restarting would do the trick... guess what... it works!

How to transfer windows media player muisc to iTunes


You may have some music on Windows Media Player, and you want to add them into iTunes library for your new iPod or iPhone. Or you may want to move your iTunes bought music to Windows Media Player for portable devices such as Zen, Zune, Phone, Sansa, Archos, MP3/MP4 Player, etc. It’s easy to do that. And this guide will show the steps to do the job.

Part1. Transfer Windows Media Player music to iTunes

Step1. Open iTunes and select the File -- Add Folder to Library menu.

Step2. Browse to your Windows Media Player music folder. iTunes will ask you where your songs are located, which by default will be in your My Music folder on Windows XP, or in your Music folder on Vista.

Step3. Convert Windows Media Player songs to AAC format (.m4a). If you have files in WMA format, you will be prompted to convert those WMA files to AAC. This is a necessary step if you want those tracks available to play on your iPod or iPhone. If you have a large music library in WMA format, converting WMA to AAC may take a long time. Plan to do this at a time when you can leave your computer on and walk away to do something else for awhile. You can also import your WMA files as MP3 instead, which also allows them to work with your iPod, but makes them more portable if you buy something else in the future.

iTunes doesn't modify your original music files from Windows Media Player. It leaves those songs in their original location and makes copies in your iTunes music folder.


Part2. Transfer iTunes music to Windows Media Player

Because iTunes music has DRM protection, you can't easily import the music into Windows Media Player by drag and drop. There are two ways to transfer protected music from iTunes to Windows Media Player.

Method1. You can use iTunes to burn the music to a blank CD at first, then use Windows Media Player to rip the music CD, the DRM protection will be remove during the ripping process, then you can rip the CD into WMP library. This way is good for tranferring a few music. For large mount of music, it would take a really long time to transfer music.

Method2. If you don't have blank CD disk or you have many iTunes music need to transferred to windows media player. You can use DRM Media Converter. It can legally convert the protected iTunes music to non-protected MP3 music, then you can easily drag and drop the MP3 music into Windows Media Player.

Step1. Download and install the DRM Media Converter , the file size is about 7 MB. I have scaned it with Norton Virus protector and AVG spayware protector, it's safe without any warning.

Step2. Run the DRM Media Converter, Click Add to import iTunes music, which by default will be in My Music\iTunes\iTunes Music .Or you can run iTunes, click Edit -- Advanced Tab, there you will see where your iTunes media folder location.

Step3. Set the output audio format as "MP3 - MPEG Layer-3 Audio (*.mp3)"

Step4. Click Start to run the conversion, it will take a little bit time to finish the job, then click Browse to located your converted mp3 files, drag them into Windows Media Player, done.

How to Remove DRM from iTunes M4P M4A AAC Music files


M4P M4A AAC are DRM license Protected music files downloaded or bought from iTunes music store, (DRM - Digital Rights Management is a term used to describe procedures which are taken to prevent unauthorized use of the media in question). And if you have music with DRM purchased from the iTunes store, you will not be able to play them on any other media player, other than Apple's players. Because Apple's DRM copyright protection, doesn't give you the rights to do so. This turns out really bad if you want to buy a new mp3 player which is not manufactured by Apple.

In this way we will describe an easy and fast way about how to remove DRM from iTunes music M4P M4A AAC files to play M4P M4A AAC music files on portable devices like Zune, PSP, Creative Zen, Sony Walkman, Cell Phone, Blackberry, HTC, etc without DRM protection.

Then, there are a few steps for you to follow now.

1. Look a the interface, click 'add' button, or double click within the 'Getting Started' area, explore the directory where your M4P, M4A, AAC music files are stored. Usually these files downloaded from iTunes are stored in *.\My Documents\My music\iTunes\iTunes Music\Downloads. If you want to add files in a batch, you can click the triangle besides the 'add' button.
2. Wondershare Media Converter contains multiple functions for customizing your output files. So the second step is to select your output formats. Just click 'Setting' button, audio for audio settings. If you want to edit them in Windows Movie Maker, I recommend you to select MP3 or WAV.
3. Well, you have almost done! The final step is to choose output directory. Please select a path which is easy to remember so you can find it. Then, just click 'Start' button. Enjoy it!

I have a Acer Aspire 6920 laptop with the Cine Dash Media Console. It is no longer responding to touch. It is showing the volume is at its highest setting and the light indicator is on mute when actually...


Wilsonalbany (and all others with this problem),

There is a trick to resetting the CineDash. Remove all power (turn it off and remove the battery) for more than 10 seconds.

That gives it a sort of manual reboot.

*Should* get you back gliding in no time…

My cinedash media console is not working the mute and volume controls are both lit up but no response from either


I've had the same problem with mine and the solution is rather simple. Unplug the AC supply and remove the battery for 10 seconds or more. Next time you'll boot, you'll see everything works just fine. Oh, and it's possible that this problem might reappear.

On my acer 6920 the cinedash is stuck on full volume and mute.


Turn your lappy off, unplug the ac cord, pull out your battery, wait 20 seconds and turn your machine back on, it should be reset.

Functions are activated by simply tapping
the function with your finger, while you can adjust volume by sliding your
finger around the volume meter.
CineDash reacts on commands with a little “lag”, if you use it carefully you can expect no problems, but for nonchalant usage CineDash will not react on every touch. You also have to make sure that it's turned on for it to work.
