I wanted to get a clean install of Windows 7 via a USB drive/stick, but for some reason the official Windows USB/DVD Download Tool wouldn’t accept the ISO I selected.

So, then it’s time for Unetbootin.

Selected the ISO, selected my USB drive, waited for a couple of minutes and I had a working USB install drive. So I thought…

I booted the USB and got into a Unetbootin boot manager, but it wouldn’t go anywhere from there. So I read up about this and it turns out I had to format the USB drive in NTFS to get it to work.

Cheapest Sportscam with External Mic Available!

…but is it decent? I think it’s fairly okay. The video isn’t the best but I think with a better mic the audio will be pretty good. Having the mic in the back of my helmet gives it the best quality it seems.

They’re available on DealExtreme:

Mine didn’t come with a manual unfortunately.

I’ve happily used Videopad for editing my videos, but with the latest version (3.14), it crashes whenever I want to import a video.

I’ve made a video (not using Videopad) to show what happens:

Does anyone know how to fix this, or what the issue is?

One thing that frustrates me when I want to select parts for my possible future pc is to match the memory speeds/bandwidth. Typicaly you see them either as PC-XXXX (like PC3-16000) or in MHz (like 2000MHz), but I lose track of the different formats.

So, here’s a convert table:

Bandwidth Speed in MHz
PC2100 266 MHz
PC2700 333 MHz
PC3200/PC2-3200 400 MHz
PC2-4200 533 MHz
PC2-5300 667 MHz
PC2-6400 800 MHz
PC2-7200 1066 MHz
PC2-8500/PC3-8500 1066 MHz
PC3-10600 1333 MHz
Bandwidth Speed in MHz
PC3-12800 1600 MHz
PC3-14900 1866 MHz
PC3-16000 2000 MHz
PC3-17000 2133 MHz
PC3-17066 2133 MHz
PC3-19200 2400 MHz
PC3-21300 2666 MHz
PC3-22400 2800 MHz

Recently tried I installing Xubuntu 12.04 on one of my machines, but at some point of the installation it crashed. Or it appeared to have crashed. I’ve got 2 graphic cards in that machine, one on-board (ATI), one dedicated (NVidia), and had a hard time figuring out how to get through the install.

It didn’t matter if I set the dedicated or on-board graphics card as the primairy one in the bios. So after a lot of switching around, turning off the on-board graphics and so on I finally figured it out.

I had to use both of the graphic cards, both connecting to my monitors. After completing the installation I plugged both monitors into my dedicated graphics card, and could configure them properly with the nvidia configuration tool.
