  1. I've been using iTune's Sound Check when I import my personal music, but it doesn't seem to be working that well to me. I checked the preferences and made sure that Sound Check was enabled on both iTunes, and iPod, but when I listen to music my on my iPod, the music volume still drastically goes up and down. I then supplemented Sound Check with iVolume, it helped some but I still have to play with the volume button when I'm listening to my music at work. Is there any product out there (either software or hardware) that'll keep my music volume at a consistent level?

    Volume Logic - Moving On !!??

    Here's an update: I got my VolumeLogic working again. Thanks to you Mr. HuskerMn, your link in your response lead me to a source that enabled me to "tweak" the plug-in into life again (at least for a little while longer).

    Burn DVD +R DL, but Unavaliable for Viewing

    Thanks Huskermn. I tried the two previous suggestions earlier today and to my disappointment, it didn't work as well as I hoped. I'll burn another copy with a disk made by another manufacturer.

    Burn DVD +R DL, but Unavaliable for Viewing

    I've had other little nagging issues and it always points to the permissions. Thanks Shepherdboy, I'll give it shot.
  6. I've been running Leopard for weeks now and all of a sudden wierd things are happening!! Last night I created a backup copy of one of my favorite movie DVDs onto DVD+R DL. I burned the disc, popped it in my DVD player to my TV worked fine. I popped the DVD into my iMac to view the movie, it says disc is not supported. How could this be? Is my superdrive failing? It definately burned the movie onto the DVD, but I can't view it on my Mac? Can someone explain this to me? Thanks!

    Mac OS X 10.5 Stutters

    Since upgrading my OS from Tiger to Leopard, I've noticed that my iMac (last model with the PPC processor w/ built-in iSite) occasionally stutters. It seems that something in the background of the OS can't keep up and vapor locks and paralyzes the system temporarily . I have over 1.5 gig of memory. No other apps running except Spin Doctor. For example, I'm in th e middle of recording the ablums, I would notice the vue meters would momentarily stop working and then start up again. While listening to the playing back of my freshly ripped tunes, the music will skip enough times that I will have to either re-record a track or sometimes the whole side of the album. I never had that issue with Tiger. The only thing that I might have done to may have caused this is when I updated the OS, I didn't do a fresh install. Could that be what causing the occasional stutter of the OS? I know it'll be pain, I have back ups of all data, software and everything-should I go ahead do a complete re-install from scratch - start fresh? Thanks!

    How much apple stuff have you bought?

    Since the purchase of my iMac a few years back, I've purchased three iPod shuffles, a Super Mouse, and a iPod Classic 160GB

    Apple stickers?

    I put one on my car (on the side glass on the driver's side), my PDA case and one on my guitar case.

    Word on Mac and images

    I'm with Joshr on this one! Scribus is awesome, and the best part is that it's free! I've used it with Linux, and I've created several user guides and newsletters with it. But I haven't used it in the OS X environment. But I'm sure you'll get professional looking results just as well. There's even a tutorial that'll help learn the application quickly.

    This is a great idea! I mention this to my son's teacher at the next PTA meeting. Both of us were discussing about a anything such as this existed. This a bit of info that I can share with her. Thanks everyone!

    Price Reduction

    I haven't heard anything through the grapevine. But I can probably bet my last dollar that the price will not go down - at least this year anyway.
