Thanks for the link Larry, i may just try 1by1, it sounds like the kind of mp3 player i want:
Quote
1by1 is a small, fast and handy audio player which is not only small: it provides a smart and versatile environment to handle your file collection and listen to your tracks - with no need for playlists or databases.


I am glad someone else likes the idea. Let me know what you think after kicking the tires.

I wanted to let everyone know I finally found what I was looking for. Yes I have been searching ever since the post. I can finally shower and shave!  ohmy

I found this wonderful freeware, yes freeware program that is small, fast and simple.

It is called the Directory Player by 1by1 software http://mpesch3.de1.cc/1by1.html

Thanks again for everyone who takes the time to help out on these sometime esoteric requests.

smiley Try TheDIZs!

Extracts DIZ- and NFO-files from RAR-files.
Place UnRar.exe from www.winrar.com in the same folder as TheDIZs.

You can run it to have it ask for a root folder, or add a folder to the command line.

Well I finally had a chance to try this out (school has been a bitch!) but I am not getting the result I am sure you did.

This is all the text file shows when it is done
Scan started 20080212201023
Scan stopped 20080212201023

unrar.exe is in the same directory as the script.

Any idea?

Thanks!
79  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / IDEA: Batch read nfo files in RAR archives on: February 03, 2008, 09:19:56 PM
I am starting to clean out a bunch of software program files from years ago.
Some are in ZIP format but most are RAR. Inside these compressed files is an information text file with the extension of .nfo.

I would like to be able to copy the name of the archive and the text of the nfo file to a separate file so that I can determine if I want to keep or delete the archive. It is also helpful when I archive to a cd/dvd as a content file.

There are plenty of programs that will search out a ZIP file and do just what I want but not any that work with RAR that I have found. I am willing to use command line batch file if anyone is knowledgeable about the RAR archive program.

As always, many thanks in advance!

you can try this add-on: EZNav

Thanks lanux128. That is just what I was looking for. Works as advertised.

Thanks again!
81  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / IDEA: Incremental update into browser navigation bar. on: December 09, 2007, 10:16:16 PM
I use Firefox as my primary browser.

What I would like to do is be able to increment the URL in the navigation bar on a user defined basis.

Example; www.example.com/1.html "press predefined key and have a new URL as" www.example.com/2.html

In the example above, 1.html was incremented to 2.html. The next one would be 3.html ect. ect.

Some sites have a mix of numbers and letters for the pages. I would need to be able to only increment the numbers of the URL.

There are a few sites that I visit that have poorly setup site navigation. In order to be able to page through the sites quicker, it would be nice to be able to press one key than having to hassle with site's navigation buttons and ads.

Thanks!
82  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: a Profile-able Workdesk Desktop on: November 15, 2007, 10:49:32 PM
I think what psionics is looking for is Virtual Desktops.

A virtual desktop may also refer to setting up separate desktops for different groups of applications and being able to switch back and forth with a hotkey. For example, an architect might have one desktop for CAD and related design programs and another for spreadsheets, word processing and business applications. Grouping applications in this manner keeps the desktop from having an excessive amount of open programs on screen or on the Taskbar at one time.

Microsoft has one that is part of Microsoft PowerToys for Windows XP which can be found here;
http://www.microsoft.com/...owertoys/xppowertoys.mspx

A quick google found this opensource project VirtuaWin - The Virtual Desktop Manager
http://virtuawin.sourceforge.net/

Much easier with XYplorer 6.50 (soon out): define a UDC (user-defined command) that moves selected files to your target folder, and assign a keyboard shortcut to it. If you know how to do it this one-time step takes you maybe 15 seconds. Then start your pre-listening session and hit your keyboard shortcut whenever you want to move a file. Tap, tap, tap, ... done. smiley

Will give it a spin when it comes out.
84  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: MP3 player with copy/move feature on: October 30, 2007, 10:41:00 PM
just found this via Google: WinAmp File Copy. it hasn't been updated for some time but it's freeware (donations encouraged)..

lanux128  you are the MAN! Thmbsup

This is 95% what I am looking for. Works as advertised. A bit of clicking but no dragging and dropping.

Thanks again for looking around and finding this gem. It will save me a lot of time when I make mix cds.
85  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: MP3 player with copy/move feature on: October 29, 2007, 10:34:59 PM
when i'm creating a mix CD for my mp3 player, i use DC's own Random MixTape Maker. you can drag and drop the files from the playlist into another folder/drive..

Now we are on to something. If I could have a basic program that would take a group or folder of mp3 files, play them one at a time with a click of a button, (send them to windows media player would work) and then be able to click on another button to move the desired file to the desired folder, this would be what I am looking for.

I wonder if a AHK script could be used?
86  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: MP3 player with copy/move feature on: October 29, 2007, 04:18:23 PM
Here's how that could be done with XYplorer:
You open 2 tabs, one with the initial folder and one with the folder where you'd like to move the songs. Then, open the preview tab and when you select one, it starts playing. If you'd like to have that on the other directory, drag and drop it to the other tab.

I bet there should bet some program out there that'd do this in less steps.


I could do this with any mp3 player and windows explorer but as you say, there has to be a way to do it with less steps.

Thanks again for trying to think of ways to do this "off the shelf."  smiley
87  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: MP3 player with copy/move feature on: October 29, 2007, 04:16:20 PM
Using Foobar2000 you can drag and drop songs to (another/several other) tabs - you can then select several/all songs under a tab and run a file operation like copy or move on them. Just to clarify, tabs are basically playlists and when you drag-drop a song it's replicated on the target playlist.

I was looking at foobar 2k but did not know if it would do what I wanted. This answers my question.
88  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: MP3 player with copy/move feature on: October 27, 2007, 05:50:45 PM
What I want to do is select a bunch of mp3 songs. Listen to them and then sort them by being able to click a button to copy the song being played to another predefined directory.
89  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / IDEA: MP3 player with copy/move feature on: October 26, 2007, 11:56:08 AM
When I am making compilation disks of my music to listen to in the car, sometimes I will play the songs before I copy them to make sure I like them or I am not tired of listening to it.

What I would like is a MP3 player with a button that would allow the user to move or copy the music being played to another directory.

The player just needs to play/skip/stop/copy/move MP3s. No other features needed.

Thanks!
90  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Use scroll lock LED as hard drive indicator on: October 21, 2007, 09:21:24 PM
That leaves me with DriveGLEAM that has way too much overhead involved just to intercept the
hard drive activity.

Hi, I'm the author of DriveGLEAM. How can you justify this? exactly what are the overhead? are you experiencing slowdowns? if so please enter a bugreport here: http://forum.dirtcellar.net
DriveGLEAM is one of the fastest free (and non-free for that matter) software HD LED indicators available. If you are still running on a 100mhz pentium you can set the pollrate if neccesary.
Just compare DriveGLEAM with other simmilar tools and check the resource usage by your self.
...as you can understand this post really provoked me and I just had to blow off some steam Wink

Hi Waxhead,

I apologize if I offended you or your program!

Maybe the term "overhead" was used in the wrong context.

I am looking for a simple program to just blink the scroll lock LED without any other features.

I appreciate programmers like you who work hard to put out quality programs for free. I have tried your program and found it to work as you have stated without any issues on my computer.

Again I sincerely apologize if you took offense to my statements.

By the way wetsmellydog, make sure you did what I said above before running the AHK script, otherwise you will get random readings.

(Just ONCE though! thumbs up)

According to the help file on diskperf.exe, it is not necessary to run the script in XP.

See below

Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
(C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.

C:\Documents and Settings\Mr Comp>diskperf.exe -y

Both Logical and Physical Disk Performance counters on this system
        are automatically enabled on demand.
Raw counters are also enabled for IOCTL_DISK_PERFORMANCE.

C:\Documents and Settings\Mr Comp>diskperf.exe /?


DISKPERF [-Y[D|V] | -N[D|V]] [\\computername]

  -Y  Sets the system to start all disk performance counters
      when the system is restarted.

  -YD Enables the disk performance counters for physical drives.
      when the system is restarted.
  -YV Enables the disk performance counters for logical drives
      or storage volumes when the system is restarted.
  -N  Sets the system to disable all disk performance counters
      when the system is restarted.

  -ND Disables the disk performance counters for physical drives.
  -NV Disables the disk performance counters for logical drives.
  \\computername        Is the name of the computer you want to

SoftLeds can also use the ScrollLock led on your keyboard to display the disk access on all the monitored drives. See http://xfx.net/utilities/softleds/index.htm.

I am looking for a small program without extras. The AHK script would have been great if it had worked.
93  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Use scroll lock LED as hard drive indicator on: October 17, 2007, 01:17:26 PM
What do you mean when you say "did not work reliably"? I am running it right now (gotta love the blinking lights Kiss) and it seems to work fine (wired keyboard, didn't touch a line of code within the script so it is as-is from the net). Very handy for me, I didn't even have a mobo LCD to show HDD usage. smiley

I compared the HD light on my computer and the Scroll Lock LED. They rarely matched. In fact, the scroll lock LED would blink even when there wasn't any indicated activity from the computer.

I am using a wired Logitec keyboard.
94  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Use scroll lock LED as hard drive indicator on: October 16, 2007, 06:24:12 PM
OK, I tried the AHK script and it did not work reliably.

That leaves me with DriveGLEAM that has way too much overhead involved just to intercept the
hard drive activity.

Any other ideas?

Thanks!
95  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Use scroll lock LED as hard drive indicator on: October 13, 2007, 07:08:50 PM
What I would really like is just a stand alone program that would do job without all the bells and whistles.
Doesn't that ahk script do just that?

It depends on aht to run.
96  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Use scroll lock LED as hard drive indicator on: October 13, 2007, 02:12:51 PM
I tried to find something like that a few years ago and discovered that there's something about my USB keyboard that doesn't like having its LED toggled numerous times a second.  Either the LED would get stuck in a particular state, or the keyboard itself would go nuts requiring a reboot.

I gave up and ended up using FloatLED: http://www.stone-oakvalle...os.com/index_software.php

I had spent long hours searching for a solution and after I post this message, I find a couple of software solutions.

FloatLED is based on this software DriveGLEAM found at http://www.dirtcellar.net/
What is cool about this program is that you can hook up and control LEDs from the
parallel port.

I also found an autohotkey script at http://www.autohotkey.com/forum/topic17954.html

What I would really like is just a stand alone program that would do job without all the bells and whistles.

97  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / IDEA: Use scroll lock LED as hard drive indicator on: October 13, 2007, 12:04:04 PM
Years ago I found a program that allowed you to use the scroll lock LED as a hard drive light indicator.
I have not been able to find it again after numurous pcs and HD crashes. I tried searching the net and
have not found a replacement either.

This was WAY before motherboards had integrated hard drive controllers. I think they were intercepting
hardware int15.

There is a software version that sits in the task tray but I find that one annoying.

Thanks!

That was disheartening ! Sad but thanks for the appreciation.

I might not be able to use it but it looks like you have a lot of other fans that will.
Thanks again.

Here is a new build.

+ Status Indicator on Title (Waiting, Activated and DeActivated)
- Activation Nag Popup
. Many other enhancements and optimizations

Please report bugs if any.

Hi destiny_ruler,

Thanks for jumping in and supplying another option.

Unfortunately I am unable to run your program at work since they do not have .net installed on the computers.

Thanks for the hard work.

Sorry I haven't uploaded yet but real life got in the way today, I'll work on it some more this evening.
BTW my version requires no framework to operate.

Hi Cpilot,

Been using your program for the past few days and it is working great. No need to rush the changes.
