Batery doesn't last long

Possible the battery life is up if the phone is old, if this is a new one you will have warranty for free replacement for a year and so must contact your dealer

I have a 91 Taurus GL 3.0 V6 w/auto trans. On transaxle half shafts, do I have to take the passenger side off first. Also do I need to use a differential rotator tool to drive out the other half shaft....

You can take out either half shaft first. Doesn't matter. Yes you should install a new axle nut, if you bought new/rebuilt halfshafts they come with one. I have never had to use a special tool to get the shafts out. I also haven't had to replace the strut to knuckle bolt.

I have a pair of atn night cougars and i havnt used them in a year and they needed new batterys so i got some. when i put them in they wont turn on and i cant figure out what the problem is.

if you left the batterys in and stored the night vision for a year the batterys could leak,,,look at the battery contacts inside your units if corroded clean them up they should work then
never leave baterys in the unit if storing it away for more than a month

How do i add album art to iriver x20?

if your using wmp11 you should just be able to drag and drop.
if not right click the song/album and go to advanced tag editor, pictures and then add manually.

half the time it just wont come up because the tag doesn't read properly and the other half the album art that wmp11 downloads and applys automatically will come up!

its kind of up to chance! if you're lucky it works if not live with it its the X20!

ps the iriver plus 3 and itunes also can apply album art
