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.

Default How do you convert limewire files so they can be played on a CD player?

How do you convert them? I think limewire is amazing...just the fact that all the music I download is in MP3 form really, really sucks. Can I get some help? (Please don't use some other language that only a computer nerd can understand)

Hiya...

(notmysticks, huh ? )

I moved your post here to the Tips & Tricks forum because it is not really a LimeWire issue or thing...


And, please tell us what you have for
a computer
the Operating System
CD-ROM type of drive(s)
and loads more !


In order to transfer an .mp3 file to a CD that will play in 'normal' CD players, you must convert the .mp3 file into a different format generally called .wav
Then you need to burn the .wav file(s) to a CD....

The type of CD you need to do the burning will depend on what type of CD-ROM drive that you have...
Different drives have different 'abilities'...
Some can burn to nearly all types of currently available CDs meant for burning.
The main differences between the CD-ROM drive types is whether or not they can record to CD-R/W disks or only to CD-R type...
CD-R/W means basically, 're-writable' (you can 'format'/erase it and use it again). CD-R means recordable - One time only.

Speed is also important in terms of what type of disks will actually work in your drive(s)... The latest high-speed disks will NOT work in older drives.



You need other software in order to do the file type conversions and the burning.
Some programs do all of the steps separately and are really only for the more experienced...
Other programs have many functions and, to varying degrees of success, are actually easy to use to do all that you want.


This is not a subject that can be covered in a few short posts where all will be revealed !!!

The first step that I normally recommend to people who are really new to all of this is to
install Musicmatch Jukebox...
There is nothing else available of even remotely equal all-around quality and ease of use.
But, it is for Windoze only.

Now, for the counter arguments about that last bit...

Yes, but first they themselves must want to change !

It has been suggested that a serious session with missionaries may also be attempted.

However, if you want to do the burning of your files within a reasonable time it is probably better to use software !

Sure wish you'd try out Musicmatch Jukebox first... A LOT easier to do all of it when you are just starting out.

Right...try not to use remarks that I can't understand. Plain and simple.
Now that I have Musicmatch jukebox...how do I convert my limewire files? And will the ones on the jukebox download as .wav files?

Man! Musicmatch costs money! Screw that. Peerless, since you seem to be of some help without advertising anything, if I make it as an audio CD, will it change them to .wav files?
