Moderators

There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.


The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.


Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

If you have the latest software, then they will normally show whether your burner can burn cd's/dvd's, etc.

Certainly the earlier combo's were just cd burner & dvd player only. Some of the later ones can burn both. But if you bought yours cheaply, then probable chance is you only got a cd burner & dvd reader as Murasame suggested. Just like my partner's computer.

AFAIK All dvd burners nowadays will read & burn cd's also. I haven't heard of anything different. But research what you're after. I'd recommend something that can burn & read both DVD+/- R/RW media.
For some basics on dvd's see http://www.answers.com/topic/dvd
eg: You can go to a site like cdfreaks.com to find particular models & what tests have been done to check their reliability & their effectiveness with particular brands & particular types of dvd media. eg: my present burner which I bought quite a while ago http://www.cdfreaks.com/article/204

If you find out about a particular burner, always research it on the net before you buy it. Find out what it can or can't do. Find out about user feedback both positive & negative feedback. Google can be a great help there.

* But also check your dvd player. When I bought my player, I took in different brands of dvd-/+ r/rw media to make sure it would play back those burnt by my player in various formats suggested including vcd/svcd & more such as divx, mp3, m4a, wmv, etc. My player can also playback dvd DL disks (8.5 GB disks.)

Default A Little Help For Those Of You Confused

Here's a fun fact! can't find the files you downloaded? well here let me help First Start Up Limewire, then go to tools, then click on options, Then go to saving, then click browse, there will be a little folder with an up arrow on it click on it until it is unselectable, then click select, AND BADA BING!!! all downloaded files will be sent to the desktop!

If you see where are my files downloaded? as pointed out, the desktop is not a wise place to have as a downld location. If you should accidentally downld a virus, then your entire desktop could become corrupted, not to mention lack of security. By default your downld folder is shared. So that would mean your entire desktop & all folders within would be accessible to anyone.

If you want easy access to your downlds, I can think of 2 options; 1. create a shortcut & place it on your desktop. 2. Go to your LW Library window, select Saved Files folder & press the Explore button. Sample image here: Using Library Explore button to access downld folder (click on link)

Look that's the reason why you should, first of all ALL FILES will be at your desktop, second of all you should have your antivirus be on the look out on your desktop so you have less chance of that virus taking charge, and third of all i know what i am doing please don't think i am just a basic computer noob, i've learned things you would never understand, and just to let you know LimeWire basic is illegal in the government standards as well as bearshare and all the other filesharing programs so you just started forums of illegal stuff, because i've seen people get LimeWire Pro off of LimeWire basic, which disgusts me because they are pirating software they should have not messed with! so if you really think i don't know what i'm doing ask the 100 people who asked for my help on their computers ok? And learn how to spell download!

why so hostile? speaking of viruses, i think i just had one. I downloaded some things that didn't exactly say what they were just 2006, yeh i can be stupid sometimes. ne how, i previewed some and delete some. The next day i try to get on the internet thur internet explorer and it keeps redirecting the address to this jiberish nonsense, it basically looked like the alphabet gone wrong. i tried everything i know to fix it and believe me that isn't alot cause i don't know much about computers. i have norton anti virus and thought i was safe but it could not find anything wrong. Meanwhile my computer is going slower and slower and starting to freeze up at the simplest of things pretty soon certain things will not even run. I had to start over, thank god for backups! while i was tring to fix things myself i came across something i'm not sure about. Does anyone know what P2P networking is and does it have anything to do with limewire? change subject, so putting downloaded material in a folder on desktop allows everyone to view everything? Is there anyway to only share what is in the limewire library while still have some downloaded material on the desktop in a folder? and how can keeping material in the library help on virus protection ? how dumb is it to download things that can not be verfied by bitsy. well i guess i've sounded as dumb as i feel like sounding for today. sorry about all the questions but i dont completely understand how a computer works and have decided after recent fustrations that advice on safer downloading and keeping is completely necessary. As always any advice however hostile or nice is greatly appreciated.

I have no problem burning CDs from Limewire. I usually put a blank CD-R into my CD-RW drive and select the songs I want to burn to CD. I burned a CD that was over an hour long, and it contains songs which I downloaded from Limewire. I just hope what I'm doing isn't considered illegal, that's all.
