Just like they will never see white dog poo, or have to find porno by combing hedgerows ditches & railway sidings.

Like FatherTed, I also spotted one of your mystical finds recently but it wasn't the dog poo ;) Not seen outdoor porn for years, made me smile :)

If anyone knows how to transfer ipod contents to your hard drive after wiping clean the hard drive I'd be interested to know.

Officially, you can't - this is what infuriates me. Apple want your music to all be stored on your PC, but will then sell you an iPod big enough to hold it all in one go. But if your hard drive dies and you start your collection again, when you next connect your iPod it'll merrily delete all the stuff on it. There are a few solutions though, EphPod rings a bell as something that supports 'wrong-way' transfer. They're quite buggy though.

I had exactly this scenario yesterday - wife wants to connect her iPod to her laptop; iPod has previously been linked to desktop. Ended up using one of the downloadable 3rd party "wrong way" programs (AVC I think) out there but you have to pay for it (£20) if you want to move >100 tracks. The iPod can be seen as an external drive (usually E:), but you can't ordinarily see the music folders - you can apparently "unhide" them so you can copy them across to the iTunes folder in Windows, but then I think you need to faff about with renaming tracks.

Shiteless for the foreseeable future

Kids will never again see endless strings of cassette tape blowing gently from a hedge whence it has been luzzed after being unravelled by a 19.99 motorworld tape deck.

ha ha, I just LOZL'd at this very poignant observation.

Bought one of these, very surprised by the number of minidiscs available on ebay - bought a load of Jean Michelle Jarre and Art of Noise discs...
Bought a couple of GB discs to put my CD and more importantly my audio comedy stuff on
[Digress mode] Thats a point, was listening to the Navy Lark on BBC7 this morning (on the pink DAB) and before it came on the continuity announcer was apologising for the programme causing offence to anyone with delicate sensibilities as its wasnt politically correct in this day and age - I mean FFS there was NOTHING on there offensive in any way to any minority group, be they black, white, gay, lesbian or a sailor [/digress mode]
also buyying second hand 80 min discs off the bay for a couple of quid for 10 these hold about 10 albums and will be GR8 for C-90 stlye compilation discs - Im so looking forward to a compo disc of say Alice Cooper, Lita Ford and Def Leppers - going to dig out my old computer speakers and wire it up in the car through them - more shite ICE to follow then chaps....

Must say I was reasonably content with the MD playa I had pre-iPod, though the 'NetMD' business of it was a bit of a faff... sure it allowed 8x the amount of music on a disc but took about 4 million years to get the stuff on there in the first place. :lol:

Well, according to the spiel it takes just a few seconds to put an entire album onto a Hi-MD disc, however I expect it will take my steam powered PC several hours to convert the files to be ready to transfer...

Hi-MD is loads faster to transfer than NetMD was, the software can be a bit of a faff, but it does the job once you get the hang of it.

I was happy with just straight duplicates of CDs onto MD, and then manually making MixMDs (not quite the same ring as a mixtape) using the good old 'hover finger over record button, press play on the source, quickly record and then wait for the track to play all the way through' method.I did make an absolute fortune making 80 minute MDs though - back in t'day they cost about three times as much as a 74 minute one but were the only option for recording CDs that were longer than 74 minutes. I had a natty deck which you could put into service mode and 'clone' an 80m one onto a 74m, I was getting about £8 for a box of five that cost me £3 from work :)

Quick udate:Got my Sony NH600 Hi-MD recorder and so far am very pleased, only Star Terk II seems resillient to being transfered onto ATRAC3, not sure if Terry Ravenscroft put some weird copy protection / DRM on it or not, but pretty much everything else going onto the GB discs well - one of them has early 400 hours worth of Hanckocks half hour - everything from 1953 to 1960.But, most pleasing of all is a big job lot of "blank" sony minidiscs bought off th evill bay for buttons which contain shed loads of 80's bilge - all 12" remixes and the like recorded from vinyl to MD in HQ format - currently I have the 12" of Dancing With Tears In My Eyes belting out - and ts taken me back to the south of france and a rather pneumatic young woman called Suzanne.Now saving up for a higher spec Hi-MD as this one is uber uber basic but has made my mind up, this be the format for me - with thanks to all your suggestions, esp Mr Hirst. :wink:

Without being rude, I think you've chosen the 'shite' portable audio format! :)1. It does the job perfectly well, and is available for a low price thanks to everyone else shunning it2. It was all the rage once, but then seemed to die suddenly3. With a bit of love, it'll outlast these modern new cheapy things4. It'll start conversation with enthusiasts.You've got the Allegro of the audio world there :DWish I still had mine, but after I dropped my last Aiwa portable I never found the cash to replace it, and everything I had on MD I had on CD too so the home deck never got used much either.
