  1. I have just discovered the My Alerts feature in iTunes, but don't seem to be able to get it to work correctly. I would like to receive email alerts of new songs/albums from the artists I have added to the My Alerts list, but not from all artists I've downloaded. Is this possible? I can't seem to work out how to do it. If it's not possible, is there an alternative way to do this? Many thanks.

    My Alerts in iTunes

    Yes, this is exactly what I want to do. The problem is that when the top checkbox is unchecked, I receive no emails whatsoever!

    My Alerts in iTunes

    Thanks for your reply. The problem with this is that I still want to receive email updates, but only from my specific 'alert' artists.
  4. I have a Macbook, and I was wondering how to connect this to my television to view video clips etc. ALl I think there is at the back of my TV is a SCART socket. What do I need to do to get video and audio from my laptop to come through my television? Thanks in advance
  5. Thanks so much for getting the tables out of the database for me!! Problem sorted! Many thanks
  6. Basically, I have a database file made in Microsoft Access, and I was wondering if there was any way I could open this to edit (or even just view it) on my Mac? Thanks in advance.
  7. Thank you so much for your kind offer! The database file is an assignment - it's not real data and I don't know how much sense the whole thing makes, but even so, I'd like to be able to open/fix it on my mac. There's not very much data in it - just about 6 tables or so I think...perhaps a form but I'm not really bothered about that! The link is: http://www.fileqube.com/file/IDPoEUV160634 Thanks again!
  8. Thanks for your responses. Neither OpenOffice nor NeoOffice seem to open the file properly - they just open the file in Writer, and it makes no sense whatsoever. Bento doesn't seem to work on my Mac (being 10.4), and the converting thing doesn't seem to work properly anyway for me! But thanks for the help! Any other ideas? Online software/converter maybe?

    Tiger Dock Question

    If you have a folder in the dock, and Ctrl-Click on it, you get a list of the contained files/apps, without having to open the folder. However, I would like the files in this list to be in the order they are arranged in the folder, as currently the list is in alphabetical order. Can I do this? Thanks in advance

    Tiger Dock Question

    Just drag it in - at the bit at the end by the Trash.
  11. I have used Google Mail Notifier for the past year or so, and it has worked completely fine. I turned on my MacBook today, and I just get a yellow warning triangle in front of the mail icon, and when I click on it, I get an error saying: "Can't sign in. See Preferences: Fetch -2" I can't think of anything I've done differently to provoke this response from the application! Thanks in advance

    Google Mail Notifier Error

    Thanks - strangely the issue just disappeared, and I don't remember doing anything to alter these things...strange!

    Google Mail Notifier Error

    Oh and by the way, my Google Mail still works if I access it through Safari or Firefox or whatever.

    Smart Playlist Question

    Thanks, I didn't realise your first suggestion worked in smart playlists, so there's another bit of knowledge for me! However, it doesn't really suit my purpose for this task. I thought about going from oldest first, but some albums (such as those from iTunes when three tracks download at once) don't get added to iTunes in order, which I suppose was a problem the other way round anyway! I suppose this is a kind of solution, and for now it will work, so thank you, but it just means I can't see the most recently added stuff first!
  15. I have a smart playlist for new music, which gives me all music imported in the last month. I would like to set it so that music is removed from this playlist once I've played it ie. when the play count is 1 or more. However, I would like to keep whole albums in the playlist until every song from that album has a play count of 1. Is there a way to do this? Also, I like to sort by date added for this 'New Music' playlist, so I have the newest music at the top, but the tracks are always out of order, which is really annoying! Is there a way to fix this? Thanks in advance

    Smart Playlist Question

    Sorting by the first column just makes everything go a bit weird, there doesn't seem to really be any discernible order at all then! Is there maybe a plugin/script or something that could do either of these?

    Smart Playlist Question

    All albums...The tracks of an album are together, but just not in order together, because the first track is imported first, and the last track imported last, so you get the last track at the top, and the first track at the bottom.

    Smart Playlist Question

    Thanks for your quick reply - I don't think I made it clear enough - the albums are in order, but the tracks within the albums are not!
  19. Is there a widget or other way to listen to Classic FM on my mac that gives a good audio feed, and also allows me to see the currently playing track? There is a widget on the Apple site, but the link seems to be dead.
  20. There is a podcast which I would like to keep, but is there a way to move it so it appears in the music library, instead of the podcast section of iTunes?
  21. Tobz

    Moving podcasts!

    I found out that what you have to do is convert the file to mp3 from the Advanced menu in iTunes (even though it was already an mp3!) and then it appears in the music library.

    Other World Computing

    I would like to buy some products from Other World Computing, but I live in the UK. Anyone have any experience of this, or know how long it would take, or even where to find that info on their site, because I can't see it.

    Convert .nrg to ISO/DMG...

    Thanks, will that convert it? Or will I need to burn it to a DVD or whatever, because that isn't an option I can do.
  24. How do I convert a .nrg file to something I can mount on my Mac? I have Toast 6 Lite if that helps in any way, but I tried using it and when I save the file it just gives me errors.

    Convert .nrg to ISO/DMG...

    I have a demo of Nero on the PC, how do I convert the file to an ISO?
