This might be the most stupid posting I’ve ever written in this blog. Apparently, some people are having trouble downloading SUPER from erightsoft.com. For those who don’t know SUPER, it is a video conversion tool. You may use it to convert videos to your S60 device. It is a good and free conversion tool. Unfortunately, the download link for SUPER is not straightforward. I have no idea why they designed their download page to be so complicated.
- First of all, visit http://www.erightsoft.com/S6Kg1.html
- You should see a link that looks like advertising that says "Download SUPER setup file". It is not advertising! It is a real download link (see screenshot below).
One (may be two) of the most popular postings on this blog is about memory card locking. There are many people are asking me how to unlock password-protected memory card. The problem is they never put any password on it; and suddenly their memory cards are locked.
I have written two postings about memory card locking, i.e.:
Apparently, there are still a few cases where memory card is suddenly locked. My previous colleagues had this problem as well. What is the solution then? Unfortunately, I don’t have a good answer if the two tips above don’t work. My colleague tried to call the memory card’s manufacturer. They said that he has to send the memory card back to the manufacturer. I am not sure whether they will replace it with a new one or do "magic" to unlock the card. They also mentioned this case sometimes happen on certain devices.
Anyone has other idea how to unlock memory card?
Since I changed my job, I take public transportation (read: bus) every day. What I normally do on the bus is listening to my podcasts. That’s why I’ve been using Nokia’s Podcasting application very extensively. For your information, you can download it from Nokia’s web site. Some newer devices have already included Podcasting application as well.
One thing that I was wondering on Podcasting application is how to import OPML file. After googling it, I found a nice article from Symbian Guru, How To: Importing OPML Files Into Nokia Podcasting. For those who have never used OPML, it is an XML file used to exchange web feeds between different application/services. For instance, if you have a list of blogs on Google Reader and want to transfer it to Feed Reader, you can use OPML. You export your blogs list from Google Reader as OPML file and then import it to Feed Reader.
Here is the summary of how to import OPML file to Nokia Podcasting application (for detail steps, please visit Symbian Guru’s posting).
- Prepare OPML file. For example, if you are using iTunes, you can select Files | Export menu.
- Copy the OPML file to your device, either to phone memory or memory card.
- Launch Podcasting application.
- Go to Directories section.
- Select Options | Import OPML file menu.
