Vista shouldn't prevent you from transfering data to a TASCAM Portastudio. The instruction manual shows how to connect the Portastudio to a computer using a cable. The instruction manual can be found on the internet and is called ps5_ref.pdf

If you have a CF card reader you can put the card in that and it will show up in vista as removeable disk. You then use Explorer (windows file Explorer, not the browser Explorer - who knows what fool at Microsoft gave the same name to two different programs) as normal to move the files FXPATCH.PKT, PATTERN.001, and SYSINFO.PKT onto the CF card. You use the same method to transfer your recordings and MP3 files from the Portastudio to the computer if you want to. Just remember to stick to the 8.3 naming convention - that's up to eight letters, a full stop, and three letter extension such as .MP3

Hello i dont know whats wrong with my mp3 from eclips It keeps telling me file system err and it shows none of my music. But when i go into settings and reset it then it will show file system err and then...


You should format the player to clean the file system, **** first you need to backup your data to a safe place or copy them to your computer. To format, you can use the software that came with the device, or if there isint any, you can google for HP format tool, or you can do it the usual way, and its by going my computer (on microsoft pc's) right click on the device name and click format.

What is a GPX?


Hi,


What is GPX? GPX (the GPS eXchange Format) is a data format for exchanging GPS data between programs, and for sharing GPS data with other users. Unlike other data files, which can only be understood by the programs that created them, GPX files actually contain a description of what's inside them, allowing anyone to create a program that can read the data within.
How can GPX help me? GPX lets you exchange data with other GPS users, who might not be using the same software as you. Imagine the following scenario:
You're leaving for vacation tomorrow, and you wonder if anyone has some waypoint data for the tropical paridise you'll be visiting. You do a quick search on the web, and find a data file created by a GPS user who just returned from vacation!
You've found some GPS data you can use on your vacation! Perfect! Or is it?
Without GPX You download the file, Vacation.txt from the vacation webpage, and try to open it with your GPS software. It crashes. Even though your GPS software reads and writes text files, this one is a bit different. You try making some changes by hand, but it's taking too long, and you're afraid you'll make mistakes. You do a quick web search to find a solution, but no converter exists. You end up printing out the text file and entering some of the waypoints into your GPS by hand. On the second day of your vacation, you realize that all the waypoints are off by a quarter mile. It turns out the website owner had his GPS set to a different datum, and you forgot to change your GPS before entering the data by hand.
With GPX You download the file, Vacation.gpx from the vacation webpage, and open it with your GPS software. You're surprised that it opens and transfers successfully to your GPS, since the file was created by a Lowrance GPS user on a Macintosh computer using a program you've never heard of. But since your GPS software supports GPX as well, you now have a complete, accurate set of waypoints for your vacation.
Feeling lucky, you wonder if there's a way to get the waypoints into your new street mapping software, so you can plan a route from the hotel. Your street mapping software doesn't support GPX, but maybe there's a converter available? A quick search on the web turns up another webpage! You wonder how much it's going to cost to buy a program just to do the conversion, but it turns out you don't even have to install new software - the webpage uses a FREE online form to convert your GPX file. You click the Submit button on the form, and your web browser launches your street mapping software with the converted data.
The next day, lying on the beach, you think about how easy it is for GPS programs to exchange data using GPX. While sipping a cool drink, you remember that anyone can write their own GPX converter to transform GPS data into a spreadsheet, a personal webpage, or a data file for their favorite program. And you think to yourself, "GPX really is a better way to exchange GPS data."
What are the benefits of GPX? Here are some of the benefits that GPX provides:
  • GPX allows you to exchange data with a growing list of programs for Windows, MacOS, Linux, Palm, and PocketPC.
  • GPX can be transformed into other file formats using a simple webpage or converter program.
  • GPX is based on the XML standard, so many of the new programs you use (Microsoft Excel, for example) can read GPX files.
  • GPX makes it easy for anyone on the web to develop new features which will instantly work with your favorite programs.

    * If other Digital Music Players are connected to the computer, disconnect all of them from the computer.
  4. Download this firmware file (http://walkman.update.sony.net/fw/pc/DB100/NWD-B100F_V1_3.exe)
  5. Windows Vista users: Click right click the downloaded file and select RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR.
    Windows XP/Windows 2000 users: Simply open the downloaded file by double clicking it.
  6. The program will be started.
  7. Connect the unit to the computer.
  8. If Format Data Area is selected in Download options, the unit will be formatted and all music tracks and data are deleted during the update. Make sure to backup the necessary files into the computer before proceeding to next step.
  9. Click Start.

To smeyer1. Instead of going through windows media player, just try dragging and dropping the files directly into the player on 'my computer'. WMP is pretty touchy these days about DRM issues.

Problems with Vista and video transfer


First, download the latest version of the GoGear software on the Philips website (compat with Vista).

Second, go to the Microsoft website and enter ArcSoft Media Converter in the search box to get addl software that will make it compat with Vista.

Third, check and see if the same file has the same DRM license on both computer. SomeGoGear's only read files with DRM encryption; others only read files without it. Make sure the licesnsing is the same on both computers - the Windows Media Player with Vista may or may not have this feature (if it doesn't get a PlaysFor Sure program for vista on the Microsoft website).

Tascam pocketstudio5


Hello tasbones and razzledog !I expect the following will help you solving the problems with the pattern file of pocketstudio5 (TASCAM):You need the original CD-ROM which includes the pattern file with many different drums and sound stuff. You have to put these data on a formatted cf-card (everytime again if you will use a new card) !This info comes from a german musician who had the same problem 5 years ago.Try the following Link of TASCAM where you can download the manual, an update and the PATTERN FILE !www.tascam.de   --> "Support" --> "download" --> "nicht mehr hergestellte Produkte" --> "pocketstudio5"If this will not work, give me a sign - I will try to send the data to you via mail.freewood/Berlin, Germany
