    I transferred 13 songs onto my iPod shuffle. When I connect it to the USB it gives me an option to play my songs on the computer. But when I disconnect it I get green AND orange lights when I try to play my music...and of course I hear nothing. It's not my earphones. I tested those.

From Support Website. If the front status light on your iPod shuffle blinks orange and green when you press any button, then your iPod shuffle is experiencing some type of error. Try these troubleshooting steps to resolve the problem. To troubleshoot the iPod shuffle error light: 1. Turn off your iPod shuffle 2. Wait a few seconds 3. Turn your iPod shuffle back on again If this does not resolve the problem: 1. Check to make sure there are songs on your iPod shuffle 2. Use iTunes to add songs to iPod shuffle and try again If your iPod shuffle continues to display a blinking orange and green light, use iPod Updater 2005-02-11 or later to restore iPod shuffle, and then add songs with iTunes. If your iPod shuffle still shows a blinking orange and green light after trying all of the above steps, your iPod shuffle may need service. Best of Luck.

I have just purchased a second hand iDM02 drum set (no instructions) but can't get any sound from it. Tried playing the demo but still no sound. I'm not a techy, any ideas please?

Ensure headphones are connected to the correct socket and adjust volume accordingly. If this still doesn't work, you have a faulty item

Why does my casio p-45 piano only play one demo song? There are 16 available. I followed the instructions in the manual. Any ideas...?

Well friend,
According to page 24 of the manual here
It says
Demo tunes
While holding down the MUSIC LIBRARY button,
press the PLAY/STOP button
.....and try to play a specific demo tune ........
After playback starts, press the tone button that
corresponds to the tune you want to play.from the list.

ALSO in the Troubleshooting section page 35 For DEMO tunes UNPLUG HEADPHONES

If it doesn't work, then you need to get a Technician to look at it.

Hey there 44mag, the solution may be that you need to use a different program to burn pictures. If you are using Nero, open up Nero Startsmart, and choose Nero Express, or Nero vision. The menu should appear giving you options as to which type of file you will be burning. On the left side, choose video/ pictures. Then on the right side choose the option which best suits your need. Read the description carefully and choose accordingly. Simply follow instructions and tips provided along the way. In Nero Vision, you can create your own slideshow on a DVD. I hope this helps. Good Luck!
