Hey, where's the hardrockin' music?....The FLip does a pretty nice job there. Nice color in the sky. Nice weather too. I'm here feeling sorry for the posters with WA on their avatars but your sky looks much better than ours. It's pouring here!

Like the ez traffic there. If it were like that here, I'd ride even more!

Hey Beanz, where is a good place to get tunes for this stuff?
Been pretty wet up here the last few weeks! Was nice to get a day without it. Roads are pretty nice up here, just gotta watch out for farm dogs, they're quick!

I'm thinking most people get songs from Itunes and simlar sites. But I have over 200 CD's in m collection so I downloaded a free cd-ripper online and convert my music to mp3 format so that I can use them with the Flip.

Very easy , I was hesitant cause I don't know squat about computer stuff. I downloaded the program.

Insert cd into computer, Open program, select track that display when you enter cd. select rip----> to mp3. Places file on desktop (easy to find)

then when creating a movie with the flip, select music from files.

EEEEEZZZZZZEEEE!


free program...................http://www.freerip.com/download.php....heck, If I want, I can make a cd with a gang of mp3 files and play in my truck sonce my stereo plays mp3 files. My last stereo did too. I had about 10 cd's on one disc . mp3 files are small so you can fit a bunch on one disc. 4 or 5 hours of music on one disc.

Easier than carryign around 10 cd's.

Whne you selct the music in the flip, make sure you choose the option of play music higher or lower than the video. Low is very low and louder is what I use. That's if you aren't familiar with the flip program yet.

Of course! Do double the mileage, half for me since it's pouring and we won't be out for a while!
