BTW, I found this while trying to find a registry entry to turn off the bloody clicking noise made when you tap the screen (it can be turned off with the ezex mute, but then you lose everything.) I think the sound is made by the driver rather than by playing a wav file (I searched the epods for wav files, but didn't find any that matched), so it would probably have to be a registry fix to get rid of it. I'd like to be able to take notes in class while secretly listening to mp3s via an earbud headphone without having a click sound every time I do anything.
A couple other related questions:
1. Anyone know how to save a playlist with Xaudio? It seems to be busted in that respect. Oh, if you have Xaudio installed to a storage card and want to associate it with mp3 files, you have to change the registry key HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Xaudio.MPEGAudio.Layer.3.File\shell\Open©ommand\default to *"\Storage Card\Xaudio\xaudio.exe" "%1"* <- you need to copy everything between the *'s. The default way it associates files gets fubared with the space in "Storage Card," so you need to pop some quotes around it. Fun eh?
2. The calligrapher sketchpad is good enough for notetaking, but there was a thread earlier about something better... unfortunately no links were provided and a search was futile. What are you all using? I can't see anyway to move the .ink files in a readable format to my computer, and they can't be printed from the epods, and I'd like to be able to print out my notes. I was really suprised at how easy note taking was with this thing - plus I can switch over to tetris (errr blocks) when it gets boring. Unfortunately playing chess with the person next to me is a little too overt :)
3. Still looking for a Kansas City map for Pharos GPS... you still around epoderone?
This thing is much more useful now that I've got a transfer cable that functions. At least radio shack is good for one thing. Now I just need to pick up a cheap pcmia network card to get transfer speeds greater than 1/3 that of my modem. Of course, I could go all out and get a wireless setup and tap into our airport network in the journalism room, but that would take some cash. Plus the shoddy range of it (can't really blame Apple, the school has 8-inch-thick concrete walls and lots of windows) would only let me get reception for a couple hours during the day. I need to convince the journalism teacher to let me install a range extender on the airport UFO (errr station.)
