How to copy a file from CD to ipod without the use of computer?

Asked by vicky.s1 8 years ago


Feature request - copy step.

Could you add the ability to copy a step from one instructable to another? For instance, I do a lot of work with the ATtiny chips. Each instructable has the same instructions telling how to load the chip definitions into the Arduino IDE and program the chip. Without this the instructable would be incomplete, and it is a lot of work to copy it every time. Thank you JRV31

Are you allowed to copy contents

Hi, I just glanced through the Terms and Conditions and I am trying to understand if people are allowed to copy authors contents on this site, to published on places like my blog. Or do you need a written consent from Instructables. Thank you

Photos copied from other sites

I came across this instructable. https://www.instructables.com/id/Watermelon-on-Grill/ The images are copied. I doubt if the author has really done this recipe. Found the same photos in the link below. http://www.polywoodinc.com/blog/food/bizarre-b-q-grill-recipes-that-are-surprisingly-delicious/ I am not sure how it got featured.

Unable to use CRTL+C/CTRL+V when creating a new instructable!

 Hello there, I am trying to create a new item in Instructables. I have already made a document for the work instruction and thought I'd just use copy/paste. For some reason I am unable to do this. Any reason for this? Is there something I should check? Share & Enjoy. Zippy. OKAY ME MUPPET. The reason that I couldn't do CRTL+V was something to do with the browser. I was initially trying to do it in a basic Chrome browser. When I went to firefox I was able to do it no problem. Share & Enjoy. Zippy.

Clone comments

Recently, when replying to multiple comments on the same page, it started copying my first comment into my second, for example: First comment "Yes, I recently became Pro" Second Comment Should say: "Hi, how are you doing today?" Instead says: "Yes, I recently became Pro" ______________________ That was the best way I could explain it, although it doesn't happen with the sampled comments, it happens with all the comments on a page. It says what I intended when I type it up, but changes only after posted. It doesn't behave this way if I refresh the page after my first comment. I don't think it's related to my Specs, but here they are... FireFox 3.6.3, Windows 7

Startup file to copy a picture

I have a school tablet that was forced upon us by my school. The IT department at my school insists that the computers stay 'uniform' by having the same background for desktop and log on etc. As the mischief making students that we are, we quickly tracked down the destination file and replaced the image with one of our own. But the IT found a way to stop this by changing the file back every few times we boot. So I was wondering if I could get some help with the coding for copying a file on boot. All help is appreciated.

Instructable images on another site

I noticed a spike in youtube views the other day.  Based on YouTube analytics, the views were coming from a buzzfil.net site out of France. I went to the site and notice that  the images and new text (love google translate) were pulled off one of my instructables and placed on that site.  There is no credit (or link) given to instructables.  In addition, the adsense revenue was zero since the banner ads don't show up.   Here is the original: Part 1: https://www.instructables.com/id/Planter-Box-from-Pallets/ Part 2: https://www.instructables.com/id/Hanging-Basket-Column/ Buzzfil Version http://buzzfil.net/article/11630/c-mignon,non-classe/il-ne-savait-pas-trop-quoi-faire-avec-ses-palettes-en-bois-mais-son-idee-est-hyper-genial-9.html Is this pretty common?

To be or not to be upset

So, with recently finding out that tons of people's instructables had been published without their permission on a paid subscription site, I decided to google my username and see if anything came up. This is obviously something everyone should do from time to time, and I figured it was time to give it another go. In the image search, I found an image I didn't recognize and clicked until I found the source of the connection to my username. A seemingly reputable website has written an article on one of my ibles. At first, I was excited. It was cool that someone saw my work and thought it cool enough to write about it. However, that joy turned to turmoil when I realized that the article wasn't a short description accompanied by one or two images. It is a full rehash of my ible. Basically, anyone that sees the article can follow the links to my version (there are several), but the author of the article has really not given them any reason to do so. They've taken most of my images to re-write my ible without asking or notifying me. They didn't break the CC license by writing their own version, but I believe they did when they took all my images.  What do you think? Would you be upset and ask them to change or remove the article, or chalk it up to promotion and be excited to see your work spread? By the way, there have only been 138 hits on my ible from that website. The article My ible

Name brand vs generic dremel? Answered

I'm doing a project that involves grinding PCB slots off of an aluminum enclosure and making everything fit right - due to the shape of the enclosure it looks like I will need a flexible shaft in order to get into the case. A Dremel seems to be a good tool to use, however I am looking for something that will be able to grind aluminum fairly fast. Dremels, at least with flex shafts, are expensive. I'm looking for around $40, and this seems to fit. Has anyone had any luck grinding aluminum with a non-name-brand dremel? What about Dremel branded accessories vs ebay accessories?

I have laptop with a dying seagate drive, and before it dies completely, I got a hitachi drive as a replacement. My question is, how can I copy the disk exactly onto the new drive, keeping all files and programs intact so I don't have to re-install windows. I'm guessing I can't just copy and pasts, but maybe using xcopy? I have plenty of other computers and cables to use for transferring if needed.

Rip-offs from designers

We've all seen it, and for a lot of people, it's why we're here: simple, neat, easily-executed ideas presented as high art or grand design, and sold at jaw-dropping prices. The latest example I've come across is these coat-hooks.  Cut from brass and stainless steel, they are going to be "launched" at the London Design Festival but Visuallyod. A launch event.  For coat hooks? Cut and bent from a bit of brass sheet? I shudder to think of the price as well - there's no price on their own website, but they charge £490 ($750) for some sticks cast in pottery and tied together with old string. Anyway, rant over (for now).  What examples of rip-off design have you seen?  What examples have you copied? EDIT: Sudden thought - even if you haven't made them yourselves, what are your favourite examples of Instructables recreating designer rip-offs at budget prices?

How can I get my Sony PlayStation2 Game Saves Transfered to my Laptop?

NO I DO NOT WANT TO MAKE A FLASH DRIVE OUT OF MY PS2 MEMORY CARD!!  What i want to do is maybe create an adapter that will plug my ps2 memory card directly to my laptop by USB?? like if possible a total plug & play type hack...  Be able to transfer my game saves to my laptop and also transfer other saves from my laptop back to the ps2 memory card so that it will still work and play when i go back to playing a game on the Sony PlayStation2.  Kinda like how i can plug my Verizon LG cellular phone from its charging port with the USB wall wart adapter to my laptop port and i can straight up just move/copy/transfer files around instantly and it still functions. **I've bought a PS2/PS3 memory card adapter unit from store and it did nothing, I tried on my friends PS3 to see if anything can be done there. thought for what I want/NEED it to do it WON'T so thats just a waste.  I've also seen somewhere someone posted a simple hack of a PS2 controller pinout to some other PC Port dunno if maybe can do similar for my purpose... pic included..
