Password Protect Your USB Drive Without Any Software

Posted by Vasim Tamboli 22 Comments
 

You can't call yourself a computer geek if you don't know this trick. It's always a good idea to carry your important files in a usb instead of carrying the whole laptop. But i don't like everyone prying my files on usb. So i use a password for anyone who tries toaccess my ubs drive. It also helps to secure my data from wrong hands in case of theft.
There are lot of softwares out there(most of which are paid apps) to help you with this but if you are using windows you don't need any app. Here is what you have to do to password protect your usb flash drive.

Steps:

1. Plugin your USB, click on Start & type BitLocker Drive Encryption and launch that app.

 

2. Now look for your drive and click on Turn on Bitlocker. Windows will ask you for a password, give it one and click next and save the password somewhere safe if you want.

Next time anyone tries to access you usb, he would have to crack the password.

Adidas Announces New Smartwatch

Posted by Vasim Tamboli

Smartwatch segment seems to be getting increasingly competitive. Latest company to join the fray is Adidas.The list of wearables in the sports fitness space keeps growing. Adidas has taken the wraps off its a new fitness smartwatch during GigaOm's Mobilized conference in San Francisco, telling attendees it will be made available for $399 (£250) on 1 November. 

A watch with a colour touchscreen and built-in heart monitor that studies the wearer's pulse to create training programmes has been unveiled by Adidas.The smartwatch will be designed with the help of Fjord, a design company acquired by Accenture earlier this year.


Primarily aimed at runners, the smartwatch will have GPS to track a user's workout. The device can also provide personalised coaching based on a user's heart rate that can be measured with the built-in heart rate sensor. Unlike most other smartwatches, the device does not need the primary support of a smartphone for functioning.However, this also means unlike its most competitors, Addidas smartwatch lacks the ability to receive notifications for incoming calls and text messages.

Adidas says its smartwatch will be able to track a user's pulse through their wrist, providing details about their workout with the help of motion sensors. Unlike other fitness bands, Adidas's take doesn't want to integrate solely with a mobile device over Bluetooth 4.0, instead the smartwatch's screen will dole out information on its own. A GPS will be found, tracking routes to measure your speed and distance.

How to Convert MP3 Songs to Instrumental

Posted by Vasim Tamboli 2 Comments



Steps:

1) Obtain a music editor that can remove the vocals from a song for you. An example is Mixcraft . Download the program . You can try out the program for free.

2) Install the program onto your computer after it finishes downloading by opening the installation icon on your desktop. After you finish installing, you'll want to grab the Extra boy plugin for the program . A plugin is like an extra piece that helps your program do something special. In this case, it will help you remove vocals.

3) Install the Extra boy plugin, then open your Mixcraft program by double-clicking on the shortcut icon on your desktop. Click on the button to load a song and a browse window should appear. Find the song you want to make into an instrumental on your computer through the browse box and double-click on it.

4) Click on the button marked FX and a new screen will appear. Click where it says Extra_boy. Then where it says preset, select Full Spectrum. You can now play your song without vocals. Use File Render to turn this into an MP3 that you can save.

5) Download a program that can remove the voice track on the song through a karaoke program. This works because Karaoke programs will have a method for removing the voice from your music as part of the process. An example is Karaoke CDG.

6) Install the program on your hard drive by opening the installation file after it downloads. Add a song to the project with the add song button or something similar. Click on the remove coals box and click Next to render the song. You can cancel out of the program after that, since that's all you need. You should now have an instrumental version of your song with no vocals.

Another method:

Try AnalogX Vocal Remover, it works on the same principles that the hardware removers do - that in most instances vocals are equally mixed in both channels, and can identified and therefore removed by simply changing the phase on one channel by 180 degrees. While this won't remove vocals in all instances, it does work in many cases, and can sometimes be used to remove bass or breakbeat sections as well, which I find to be GREAT for sampling! Depending on the effects used on the vocals, sometimes the reverb or ambience of the vocals is left. In order to use the DirectX Vocal Remover, your application must support DirectX Audio Plugins, and must also support either realtime or non-realtime processing (such as Paris, Cakewalk, WaveLab, CoolEdit, etc). Vocal Remover REQUIRES a stereo sound streams, and supports either 16bit or 32bit data types.

In order to use the WinAmp Vocal Remover, you must already have WinAmp installed in your system; it REQUIRES a stereo sound stream, and supports only 16 bit data types.

Fix Appcrash Errors on a Computer

Posted by Vasim Tamboli

When program files or files within your computer's registry have become corrupted, this can cause the programs to unexpectedly crash. When a program crashes, you will likely get an Appcrash error. The error message will say "Windows Media Player (or whichever program has crashed) has stopped working" and then list rows of technical information regarding the cause of the crash. Unless you are a computer programmer, you may never fully understand what caused your program crash, but that doesn't mean that you can't fix it.

Difficulty: Moderate.

Instructions:

1. Delete any new programs that you have downloaded. Often, the cause of corruption in a computer system are bad downloads that bring harmful files onto your computer. If you started to get the Appcrash error on your system after downloading a new program or software from the Internet, it's highly likely you have downloaded a bad product. Use the "Add/Remove Programs" feature in your "Control Panel" to get rid of the program immediately.

2. Uninstall the program that is crashing. It is possible to fix the program's corrupted files while the program is still installed, but to make sure that you clear the program files completely, it is safest to completely uninstall it from the system.

3. Run a full scan of your computer. Your computer should already have antivirus software installed that can scan for corrupted files and either fix them or delete them from your system. If you do not have antivirus software on your computer, that could be a big part of the problem. Purchase and install antivirus software as soon as possible. These are designed to protect your computer from outside threats. Once you have the antivirus program installed, open it and click "Scan Computer." The antivirus scan will isolate bad files and you will be given the option to remove them from your system.

4. Reinstall the program that was crashing. Now that the corrupted files have all been removed, your program should run smoothly after re installation.

5. Check for program incompatibility. If, after a thorough scan and cleaning of your computer and re installation of your program, the Appcrash errors continue, the program you are trying to use may not be compatible with your operating system. For instance, there are some DVD software's, such as Media Now, that do not work correctly with Windows Vista. These lists can be easily found online. If this is the case, you will have to purchase a software program that is compatible with your operating system.Another problem that occurs from time to time is programs that are not able to be installed on the same computer at the same time because of program compatibility issues.
