Anyways, one of the newest issues I'm having that I know can't be ram related is this one:
I have a lot of audio cds, and I want to rip them using itunes so that I can put them on my ipod nano. Now, I started ripping a few, and then suddenly some discs would not want to be read.
I would put the disc in the drive (a superdrive for those interested) and it would read it for a while and then would promptly eject the disc. With these albums I have no chance of ripping them, let alone listening to them.
I just put the disc in and about 10 seconds later it ejects.
At first I thought it was copy protection, but too many discs are being ejected, and some are from the same record label as others than worked, so I really doubt it's copy protection.
This is just pissing me off. I mean what the hell is this? What kind of shitty drive can't even read a simple audio disc? I really don't feel like having to rip my music on another computer every time, it's just a big hastle. You buy a new computer and you expect it to work, you expect it to do simple tasks such as play audio cds. As things stand, I can't even watch a video in Safari and chat on msn at the same time. As soon as the the safari window is not the one "selected" the video gets all choppy. Even the oldest laptop in the world should be able to handle such a simple task as that.
Is there any way to fix this issue of the audio discs? Firmware upgrade or something... I dunno, anything. I'd really apreciate it. Thanks a lot in advance for any help.
Also, I have a few questions:
1) Is it possible to stream the Nullsoft video codec on a mac? The videos you would stream with winamp, I think they are .nvu or .nvs or something. My life practically depends on this
2) Alternatively, is there a way to make websites that use active x to open a program work on a mac. I have a korean site that uses active x to open its own streaming video program, and I need this badly about once a month or so. I think getting nullsoft to work would be easier though
