Free Burning software

Gone are the days where one would need to pay for “burning” software (i.e. burn CDs, MP3s, etc.) … now you can download it for free!  So without further adieu, here are two that I recommend:

  • Burnaware – a free CD, DVD, Blu-ray Disc burning software. It is ideal for users with basic disc burning needs as backup, creating data, audio, MP3 music, DVD-Video discs and burning disc images. Free, easy to set up, it enables you to save your files to disc quickly and provides clean, flexible interface to help you complete your burning tasks much faster.
  • ImgBurn – a lightweight CD/DVD/HD DVD/ Blu-ray burning application that everyone should have in their toolkit!  I use this mostly for ISO burning.

Happy Burning!

Read PDF files on your iPod

With 4 steps, you can read PDF files on your iPod. To do so:

1. Open the PDF document in Adobe Reader and save it as a text file.
2. Upload the text file to either (my first choice) or iPod Notes Packager to convert it to Notes format, then download the converted file (i.e., zip format).
3. Plugin your iPod and make sure Enable Disk Use is enabled in iTunes.
4. Extract the zip file and place it in the Notes folder.

Viola! Simply navigate to Extras > Notes on your iPod. The whole book will be automatically linked for iPod reading.

This should get you started on reading more.
