The CD is 25 years old

Did you realize that the CD turned 25 on August 17th?

I didn’t realize that they’d been around that long, but then again it also feels like they’ve been around forever.

I remember when they first came out. It seemed like an alien idea and I’m sure that many people thought they wouldn’t last. Well they did. I just wonder if they’ll continue to be around now that iPods and other forms of portable multimedia players have become so popular.

The CD gave us higher quality sound. CD’s are smaller than records so they took up less space in our homes.

All we had to do was figure out what to do with our record players. Do you still have a record player? I do.

Need a program to convert audio files?

I’ve found another audio converter that I think those of you who enjoy working with different audio files might want to try.

The product is called total audio converter and I think that any digital music lover will want to have a copy of this software.

What is the total audio converter? Well it’s a software program that will help you convert files between different audio formats. Not only does it convert files, but it will also allow you to rip CDs, and play songs.

MP3, WAV, APE, and OGG are just a few of the many formats that are supported by the total audio converter. What’s more, the program is very easy to use. You’ll be converting files from CD’s and then playing them on your MP3 player in no time at all!

Exchange audio and video files from one handheld device to another

Earlier I spoke about the wide assortment of audio and video related software that can be downloaded from AVS4YOU. I’d just like to take a moment to tell you about one particular software product that I think you’ll find extremely useful.

I think I must be one of the few people in the world that has yet to buy an iPod. Isn’t that terrible? However, with iPods being all the rage these days I really do think that you will like using the AVS iDevice Explorer. You can do so many things with this software.

You can use the iDevice explorer to synchronize and exchange all of your favorite videos and songs between multiple ipods.

What if you want to exchange music and videos between other multimedia players and mobile devices?

You can.

This compact application will allow you to exchange files between popular products such as Sony PSP’s, Apple ipod, Samsung YP-T9, SanDisk Sansa e200 series players, Archos DVRAV500/AV700, 404/504/604, iRiver H10 player, Epson P-2000/P-4000, mobile phones for GSM and CDMA networks, and Portable Media Players (PMP).

You can exchange files between all of the above listed devices simply and easily without copying them to your computers hard drive.

This screen shot shows how simple it is to view the files on one device and select them to be copied and or exchanged with those on another device:

You can watch and manage the transfer of files from one device to another, as well as manage the file and folder structure on your portable device using the AVS iDevice software.

Another thing that I like about the AVS iDevice is that it supports cross-format conversion. What that means is that it will automatically convert a media file as it’s copying it from one device to another into the receiving handheld devices accepted or supported format.

You can use the standard USB connection, Bluetooth or IrDA to exchange files between mobile devices.

So how much does this great program cost?

Well, the AVS iDevice Explorer is part of the AVS4YOU.com package that I mentioned in an earlier post. For the low cost of $29 you can download and use all 27 software tools in the AVS4YOU.com package.

You’ll be able to download software, as well as get patches and upgrades during the year if you choose the $29 subscription package. If you purchase the $59 lifetime AVS4YOU package you’ll be able to download all of the AVS tools for an unlimited amount of time.

Read the AVS4YOU post that I wrote earlier and you can learn more about the 26 other AVS tools that will allow you to edit, convert and rip audio and video files, as well as create ringtones, burn DVD’s and a whole lot more.

I’m impressed with the line up of products that AVS has produced and I’m considering registering with AVS4YOU as I do quite a bit of audio and video editing for my websites.
