  1. Hey guys need some help. My roommate just upgraded his computer and gave me his old 500GB Seagate Barracuda SATA. I was wondering how to go about making this hd a slave to my current 80GB PATA Seagate Barracuda. I plugged it in and neither Windows nor my BIOS recognized it or said anything was even there. What am I doing wrong?

    Avi's On Dvd So It Will Play In Dvd Player

    Unfortunately the media server is not an option. I'm burning some videos to a DVD for my parents to watch in their dvd player. On a side note to CaptainInsano, Generation Kill was crap. It painted soldiers and marines as nothing but mindless Killers. I lost all respect for HBO after they produced it.
  3. So I got another question for you guys. How can I put some AVI's onto a DVD, so that they will play in a DVD player?

    can I put more than one AVI on a DVD or with these programs or am I stuck burning one AVI per dvd?
  6. So you guys have to help me. No. 1, I'm an internet addict and I'm going through withdraws right now not having an internet connection at home. No. 2, and more importantly, I'm being shown up by a Mac user. I just moved into a friend of mine's house and we're trying to set up a wireless network. He has a netgear wireless router and his Mac Mini connected to it instantly after he turned the airport setting on. While my two computers upstairs can see the the wireless connection and say they're both associated with excellent signal strength, they won't connect. Whenever I open Firefox or IE it says that it can't find the page. Any ideas fellas? On another note, there is something weird with the setup of the router, or so it looks to me. The CAT5 cable going from the modem to the router is plugged into the second slot, not the first one. I can't see how the hell the he is connected if the cable isn't plugged into the WAN slot. But it works for him.
  7. Two part question here. First what software do you guys use to rip dvd's? And before anyone says anything, I will only be ripping DVD's I own. Also, what software do you guys use to convert your videos (WMV, MPEG, AVI, DIVX, DVD) to MPEG-4's so you can put them on your ipod? I tried Xilisoft's DVD ripper and Ipod Video converter and they both blew, the audio and video were not in sync at all when using Xilisoft's software.

    See I'm not gonna lie about it, half the stuff you're talking about is going over my head, why would there need to be an intermediate step, and what is SUPER?

    awesome, noticed in your post you didn't say anything about iPods, so I just went with handbrake, I think I'll try both of them on a small file and see which one I like better.

    While breaking encryption for things you own hasn't been deemed legal for all cases look over the case of Kaleidescape vs DVD-CCA, where the court ruled that they were not breaking the law when they broke the dvd encryption when using their media servers. IMO, if you are breaking the encryption of the DVD for your own backup copy or to store on a media server/iPod it is well within your bounds to do so. Show me one case where any one individula has been sued for breaking the encryption to back up their own dvd's and not to pirate them and distribute them over the internet/bootleg them for personal gain. I doubt you will find any.

    It is "Fair Use" to make a backup or convert to another format something you own or have license to play/watch. While illegal to CREATE software that defeats copy-Protection, it is legal to circumvent that same copy protection for fair use purposes. Section 1201 of the DCMA divides technological measures into two categories: measures that prevent unauthorized access to a copyrighted work and measures that prevent unauthorized copying of a copyrighted work. Making or selling devices or services that are used to circumvent either category of technological measure is prohibited in certain circumstances, described below. ****As to the act of circumvention in itself, the provision prohibits circumventing the first category of technological measures, but not the second. **** This distinction was employed to assure that the public will have the continued ability to make fair use of copyrighted works. Since copying of a work may be a fair use under appropriate circumstances, section 1201 does not prohibit the act of circumventing a technological measure that prevents copying. By contrast, since the fair use doctrine is not a defense to the act of gaining unauthorized access to a work, the act of circumventing a technological measure in order to gain access is prohibited. oh and thanks for the reccomendation on what to use.

    Wd Or Seagate?

    OMG. I leave this site for 3 years, come back b/c I'm bored at work and feeling nostalgic, and people are still asking the same questions? hahahahaha. awesome. Oh and btw, Seagate. They are the only brand I will trust. I've had my two seagate barracudas for 5 years now with no problems to speak of. I've had my 320 gig for a little over a year now with the same results.

    CU prof's essay sparks dispute Ward Churchill says 9/11 victims were not innocent people By John C. Ensslin, Rocky Mountain News January 27, 2005 A University of Colorado professor has sparked controversy in New York over an essay he wrote that maintains that people killed in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks were not innocent victims. Students and faculty members at Hamilton College in Clinton, N.Y., have been protesting a speaking appearance on Feb. 3 by Ward L. Churchill, chairman of the CU Ethnic Studies Department. They are upset over an essay Churchill wrote titled, "Some People Push Back: On the Justice of Roosting Chickens." The essay takes its title from a remark that black activist Malcolm X made in the wake of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Malcolm X created controversy when he said Kennedy's murder was a case of "chickens coming home to roost." Churchill's essay argues that the Sept. 11 attacks were in retaliation for the Iraqi children killed in a 1991 U.S. bombing raid and by economic sanctions imposed on Iraq by the United Nations following the Persian Gulf War. The essay contends the hijackers who crashed airplanes into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on Sept. 11 were "combat teams," not terrorists. It states: "The most that can honestly be said of those involved on Sept. 11 is that they finally responded in kind to some of what this country has dispensed to their people as a matter of course." The essay maintains that the people killed inside the Pentagon were "military targets." "As for those in the World Trade Center," the essay said, "well, really, let's get a grip here, shall we? True enough, they were civilians of a sort. But innocent? Gimme a break." The essay goes on to describe the victims as "little Eichmanns," referring to Adolph Eichmann, who executed Adolph Hitler's plan to exterminate Jews during World War II. Churchill said he was not especially surprised at the controversy at Hamilton, but he also defended the opinions contained in his essay. "When you kill 500,000 children in order to impose your will on other countries, then you shouldn't be surprised when somebody responds in kind," Churchill said. "If it's not comfortable, that's the point. It's not comfortable for the people on the other side, either." The attacks on Sept. 11, he said, were "a natural and inevitable consequence of what happens as a result of business as usual in the United States. Wake up." A longtime activist with the American Indian Movement, Churchill was one of eight defendants acquitted last week in Denver County Court on charges of disrupting Denver's Columbus Day parade. His pending speech at Hamilton has drawn criticism from professors and students, including Matt Coppo, a sophomore whose father died in the World Trade Center attacks. "His views are completely hurtful to the families of 3,000 people," Coppo said. A spokesman for Hamilton College released a statement noting that Hamilton is committed to "the free exchange of ideas. We expect that many of those who strongly disagree with Mr. Churchill's comments will attend his talk and make their views known." Controversial statements In his essay Some People Push Back: On the Justice of Roosting Chickens, CU professor Ward Churchill argues that:

    so your saying that we should back down everytime someone does something to us in retaliation for something they don't like? why should we pressure them into giving up land that was given to them to form thier own country or make them give anything up to someone who is killing their people? thats the point though they do want us there now. Yes they may not at the beginning but they didn't know what freedom was, now its a free country. They can do what they please and not worry about someone saying do this or die or just mudering tons of people because he doesn't like your ethnicity.

    not a native american. he claims to be a native american. but the tribe he supposedly belongs to says he's not of their blood. They say he traced his ancestory wrong. he is the only one that bleives he is an indian. I think he's just a crackpot that doesn't know when to keep his mouth shut.

    oh Jesus, and what I suppose would you have to peacefully to aprehend osama bin laden? the one who has taken responsibility for killing thousands of innocent people. someone who hides in caves surrounded by tons of armed men. I don't think talking to him is going to help. I don't think playing loud music outside his cafe till he comes out is gonna help. and we are not terrorists to the iraqi people. terrorists are not wanted. they want us there, they are happy to have the bath party gone and be able to elect their own leaders now.

    my point exactly its people like you that get a thread locked for no reason just because you don't like the topic, i'm just trying to see what everyone thoughts are go have a beer and chill....Cheers! Also if anyone is wondering about the title, this plague on society that calls himself Ward Churchill claims to be an indian but his tribe says he's not. So I stole the term from Michael Savage because he's a fake indian.
