    Transferring MP3 Files From Tablet to iPod Touch

    Forgive my ignorance never having used an Ipod etc. and happy to either use the MP3 players provided with the Android or Windows or my own programs such as a random tune selector. But cannot any of the many ITunes Apps from Google Play Centre solve you problem?

    Touch Screens

    Well it seems to back up the claims of the supplier it should work on any PC or Laptop or Tablet, the latter if you can gain access to the system. As it seems the moderators of this forum do not like URLs posted, so run a search on EBay for Android OS CD and it should show the one for £2.75...

    Touch Screens

    My £2.75 CD has arrived from EBay with an Android OS that appears to work on almost any Desktop PC or Laptop even if like mine it does not use a touch screen. I only tested it on a Desktop PC with 1 Gb of RAM using the first option to run it temporary in RAM, rather than option 4 installing it...

    Transferring MP3 Files From Tablet to iPod Touch

    A 'naughty' trick I have used to overcome any restrictions is to first open up a Sound Editor like Goldwave and click Record before you start playing any music etc. Thus making a MP3 etc. You may need to first run a short test to get your sound levels correct. Beware you are not making an...

    Touch Screens

    Thanks. My next question is I have an old Dell laptop with WiFi is it worth trying to install Android using one of the CDs on EBay as it has a CD/DVD drive. If all fails I imagine I could install a Windows again.

    Touch Screens

    Mainly out of curiosity someone suggested the Android OS would still work OK with a mouse on say a Laptop that used and ordinary screen instead of a touch screen. But here is some doubt how it would cope with pinch, expand and the opening wipe needed.

    Wine for Android

    Such does not bother me either which it why I am happy to use Facebook. But what does annoy me is having to put up with the 4 Gb folder $Windows.~BT massive folder when I have no intention of ever using Windows 10. I am tempted to remove it using a temporary Linux in RAM.

    Wine for Android

    As you are a keen user of Windows 10 you might like to see these warnings that seems to come from an expert in the US Windows 10 Information There is way of reverting back to the previous Windows at http://www.howtogeek.com/220723/how-to-uninstall-windows-10-and-downgrade-to-windows-7-or-8.1/...

    Transferring MP3 Files From Tablet to iPod Touch

    I would have thought almost everything today has a USB port. So why cannot you copy all the MP3s onto a Flash drive then to the iPod?

    Wine for Android

    My initial reason for only buying a fairly cheap refurbished Android tablet is I have been using Windows for nearly all the time since the first Win 3,1, except for testing my programs converted to run on a Debian Linux such as on Mint. So I was wary of spending a lot on an untried OS. But now I...

    Wine for Android

    Thanks I agree in fact I doubt I will ever use Windows online again once MS refuse to support Win7 and 8.1 any more. I see you can buy a nice Android 10 in laptop for a fraction of the cost of a Windows laptop. But if you look at my site you will see I have developed a number of little Windows...

    Wine for Android

    As I expect many of you are aware, there are many versions of free Wine Software allowing us to run a variety of Windows programs on such as the MAC PC and many versions of Linux. A search shows there is a version for Wine claiming to run on a Tablet using Android, but as often the case many are...

    Help for Apps

    Thanks the two Apps I had to install that cause me the most trouble are for photos with the Camera where icons vanish after a second and one icon for the Quick Video. None give any indication of their purpose. Also I can find no indication where they originate such as a web site among the Apps...

    Help for Apps

    I never cease to be amazed how unlike Windows often, at the massive amount of free and apparently safe Apps available for Android Tablets. However the one thing I do find difficult is finding any help such as on all the functions of many of these Apps. For example I was obliged to install an...

    Home Made Apps

    Thanks for your advice, it is obviously way beyond me being a simple amateur programmer only using various versions of BASIC. I only managed to compile some programs in FreeBasic to Linux by using a simple online compiler on a site. If anyone wants the FB code for all my efforts to do as they...
