    Since Nero became such a bloated monster I have been searching for some simple (meaning "non-bloated") and free burning program.
    A few days ago I found InfraRecorder. It can do everything I need, it is free and it takes only 7 MB.

    Give it a try:

    Unlocker is good but doesn't always work. I had some files in a folder that became corrupted when restoring from an external backup HDD. I couldn't delete the folder or files at all. I am the admininstrator for my PC but I was unable to access the folder!!! The only way was to go boot into Linux, change the permissions and then delete.

    On the whole though - Unlocker is an extremely useful little tool :)

    I don't have a link, just search for it, don't think he has a website, but the program "dr delete by jdong" is a very good program to delete files that you can't delete them in other ways. Use it for a long time now and at worse it will require a reboot, but always deletes the file. Always.

    I highly recommend Crossloop.

    It is way better than RealVNC, UltraVNC, LogMe-In, Hamachi and the likes. I've been using it for months now and have help a handful of folks on their computer problems from across states and half across the globe in real time.

    It is freeware and it has file transfer capabilities. Check site for more details. It is a certified PWNaGE software.

    WOOT! 1st post

    iPod Music Liberator 4.9 for Windows

    Posted this in the Apple Macintosh forum, thought I'd put it here as well so that its easy to find when you need it.

    Download iPod Music Liberator 4.9 Free Trial - Copy music from your iPod to any computer - Softpedia

    I'd like to point out this is shareware, it only copies 5 tracks off at a time you have to buy the full version for more usability and it is an alternative to Mac programs like Senuti for Windows. If you want it for mac:

    You could but I'm too lazy to bother. :)

    I have a very very meticulously arranged very big library, with equalizer presets and that kinda stuff which took me a very long time to set up so basically for me a program that gets them out of my iPod as is is a must.

    Edit: It doesen't copy the presets, volume leveling and things like that, only the file names, putting the files in a folder which if you still have the files in your iTunes library can be used to save such information by replacing the files in the folder they were in before (artist>album).

    i don't know how many of you already know this or will be interested in this.

    anyways, i just found out today that the Seagate's Disc Wizard software has now been powered by the Acronis True Image version 10.0 Build 5028. you can download this free software (DiscWizardSetup.en.exe 102 MB.) at the Seagate websites.

    this version of True Image supports Windows Vista x86 (not sure about x64 based one), as well as XP x64.
    as far as i know (so far), in order to meet the Seagate's requirement, and to use the software in Windows, the system must has at the least one installed Seagate or Maxtor hard disk drive.

    [​IMG]

    and the software does not (designed to) detect Seagate's drives that are in RAID-0 set ups, so you will need to install on the system, another Seagate or Maxtor in a non-RAID drive configuration, so that the software can detect and allows its program to start.

    The Seagate Disc Wizard has the same functions a the True Image only limited to Seagat/Maxtor drives? That's great. I was wondering why the application is so big. Thanks PangingJr.

    my friend sent me the software i just installed (and removed it after, since i have the full retail version of the True Image) it to see what it's all about the software,
    and i surprised to find it's actually, and a quite up-to-date version, of the True Image software.

    however, i have not tested using it yet, and this due to all of the system's hard drives are in RAID, the software could not detect that the system was actually, had Seagate's drives.
    however, it allowed me to build a CD version of the software, and the CD version has both True Image (full version) and True Image (safe mode), which is very good,
    the True Image (safe mode), when booting into it, it can detect my Intel RAID configured drives, and that i can use it to perform backup or restore the system.

    Great ipod/motorola phone management utility/itune replacement. Runs on the ipod, copies music to anywhere, rips and converts video (using FFmpeg), and does tons more. Worth checking out to anyone with an ipod.
