Whoever told you CDex doesn't work under Windows 10 is wrong. I have used it many times in the past year, which is as long as I've been on Windows 10, and it works just as well as it ever did.

Hi,

 

Not sure if this is possible but is it possible to recover a document created in note pad?

Re: ripping audio cds to the pc

Michael Boyd <mike122061@...>
 

 

You can use Windows Media Player to rip a CD to mp3 files. Insert your CD into the drive, open Windows Media Player and switch from the library tab to the Now Playing tab. You will see a list of files which are the tracks on your disk, but are named Track 01, Track 02, etc. This can be edited if you wish. Make sure all tracks are checked and press enter or the space bar on the Rip button. The ripped albumn can be found in your “My Music” folder on the C drive\users\your users name\music\...

Ya know, this whole thread is very confusing. CDex doesn't burn

anything; it's a ripper. That is, it reads CD's and turns their contents

into .WAV or .MP3 or .FLAC or .OGG or .M4A files. If you want to burn,

as in make, a CD from audio files such as .WAV or .MP3 or .FLAC or .OGG

or .M4A files, you need a program like CD Burner XP, where the "XP" has

nothing to do with Windows XP. Here are the download links for the

current version of both those programs.

This sounds like a program I rather not use. So is there a better program with windows! Or does windows10 have a program like windows7 did. I do not do this a lot like I said it was like 8 or 10 years ago the last time I converted a cd to mp3 and I was able to ridd myself of all my cds and now I usually get cds with mp3 files on them or the files come to me off a thumb drive!

Almost every time I see a statement on any computer blindness list I'm on that starts with, I heard, I'm told, or equivalent, it is completely wrong or so misleading it might be.  Don't believe any such statement unless it comes from a person with a proven record of reliability.  You can use CDEX.  It has to be the latest version.  It is bundled with unwanted programs.  Use the portable version, which you don't install to avoid these unwanted programs being installed.  the rejection notice is not accessible in the installer.  I don't use the program and I don't have the link to download the portable version.  Someone else very likely does. 

 

also, as I recall, the web site says that the portable version, when you run the installer for the portable version, which doesn't install the program but places it on your machine and probably assigns short cuts such as on the desktop if you want them, uses the program's actual installer but doesn't access the Internet and doesn't install the programs.  It says that it may set off antivirus programs.  Check the site to make sure I am right.

 

I don't recall if it's the actual CDEX site or if another site, such as portable apps, is where you get the portable version.  I saw this notice on whatever site it is.

Are the tapes good quality or are they just spoken word tapes or of low quality so that good reproduction doesn't matter?  Most of these conversion machines are cheap walkman type units.  If you want really good reproduction, you have to get a better conversion machine or, if you have a good deck or player, it's much better to use that than most of these cheap inferior machines.  I don't know anything about the machines you are asking about.  But what is the material and what is its quality?

If you save large amounts of messages in Outlook Express, corruption may result.  and, as I discuss later, corruption may result in this version of Outlook Express when you compact folders, at least based on the very little I've read about this, especially when there are a lot of messages in folders. 
 
That's one reason to stop using this archaic program.  It is more subject to corruption of message folders than other e-mail programs are.  If you don't want to loose messages, save them outside of the program.
 
You don't compact folders just because you place messages in them.  Compacting folders is done over time as you move and delete messages.  In Outlook Express, when you delete a message, it is still there, but the program doesn't have access to it.  Compacting removes the messages and makes the folders smaller.  It also moves information around so it isn't fragmented, thus saving disk space.  And when     you compact folders, especially, from the little I've read about this, using the Windows 7 and higher compatible version of Outlook Express, that may corrupt folders and it is more likely to happen with this version than with the old XP and lower version from Microsoft.  If you have no specific reason to use this program, using something else is a better option.  Why do you want to use it?

Ctrl-d didn’t work either.

The folders may need to be compacted because I downloaded 5 months worth of messages about 2 weeks ago, but unless there’s more than one place to compact folders I did that and I still can’t delete messages.

That's one reason to stop using this archaic program.  It is more subject to corruption of message folders than other e-mail programs are.  If you don't want to loose messages, save them outside of the program.
 
You don't compact folders just because you place messages in them.  Compacting folders is done over time as you move and delete messages.  In Outlook Express, when you delete a message, it is still there, but the program doesn't have access to it.  Compacting removes the messages and makes the folders smaller.  It also moves information around so it isn't fragmented, thus saving disk space.  And when     you compact folders, especially, from the little I've read about this, using the Windows 7 and higher compatible version of Outlook Express, that may corrupt folders and it is more likely to happen with this version than with the old XP and lower version from Microsoft.  If you have no specific reason to use this program, using something else is a better option.  Why do you want to use it?

Ctrl-d didn’t work either.

The folders may need to be compacted because I downloaded 5 months worth of messages about 2 weeks ago, but unless there’s more than one place to compact folders I did that and I still can’t delete messages.

Hi all,

Okay the password problem was solved by reinstalling and checking that box, but now strangely enough when I hit delete when highlighted on a message nothing happens.  Of course that should send that message to my deleted items folder but it doesn’t.  Any ideas?  Btw this on my laptop using a USB keyboard that’s plugged into it, and this is the only thing that doesn’t work with this setup.

Re: Need key stroke for finding inconsistencies in Word doc

Hi Bob,
 
when in a 2010 Word doc, with Jaws keyboard help turned on, if I press, Windows key, Alt + I, Jaws reports, moves the cursor to the next inconsistency.
 
Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

I thought the way to search for inconsistencies in a MS Word doc was with
"Windows key, alt key, I" But this is no longer working. A bit of help would
be appreciated.

That's good that you solved the problem.  I wasn't sure if that was it.  I don't know why delete doesn't work.  perhaps the DBX file is corrupted.  You can try deleting that DBX file and seeing if it recreates an uncorrupted version.  Or, unless you don't want to remove deleted messages immediately, you can use shift delete, which bypasses the deleted messages folder and deletes the message.  You have to answer yes when doing this because you are deleting the message, not sending it to another folder. 
 
I haven't done this sort of thing for years and I expect others have instructions for how to do this.

Re: burning audio cds to the pc

Almost every time I see a statement on any computer blindness list I'm on that starts with, I heard, I'm told, or equivalent, it is completely wrong or so misleading it might be.  Don't believe any such statement unless it comes from a person with a proven record of reliability.  You can use CDEX.  It has to be the latest version.  It is bundled with unwanted programs.  Use the portable version, which you don't install to avoid these unwanted programs being installed.  the rejection notice is not accessible in the installer.  I don't use the program and I don't have the link to download the portable version.  Someone else very likely does. 
 
also, as I recall, the web site says that the portable version, when you run the installer for the portable version, which doesn't install the program but places it on your machine and probably assigns short cuts such as on the desktop if you want them, uses the program's actual installer but doesn't access the Internet and doesn't install the programs.  It says that it may set off antivirus programs.  Check the site to make sure I am right.
 
I don't recall if it's the actual CDEX site or if another site, such as portable apps, is where you get the portable version.  I saw this notice on whatever site it is.

Hello, I have not done this in say six years or so. I was told cdex does not work anymore with windows10. So is there another program that one can suggest? Mom wants me to burn all her 50 to 60 cds to her external drive! Thanks cheers Heather
