Default Camera does not start-shut down other applications?

Please Login to Remove!

I just got my pearl today so sorry if these are noob questions. The camera was working, but apparently, I must have opened another program and I need to shut it down before I'm able to use the camera again. How do I know which programs I need to shut down before being able to use camera again?

Also, can I just take mp3s from my hard drive and click and drag them into the microsd or do I need some sort of format?

****lastly, the video encoding is like reading chinese to me. Are there any videos out there that show step by step-how to actually dl, encode, settings, etc? I would prefer the mplayer since that seems to be the easier then Super.


TIA

1. I don't know that there is any program or application on the 8100 that tells you which apps are open and provides the ability to close them.

2. No need to transfer MP3's in a special format. As long as they are MP3's, they will play. Simply put into the music folder on your 8100.

Bonus Tip: Since you have a MicroSD card make sure to turn on mass storage mode on the 8100. This way when you plug the 8100 into the PC with a USB cable, the PC will open the chip as a folder. Transferring files is way faster than doing so through the DeskTop Manager. To turn it on:

Click <settings>

Click <advanced>

Scroll to <media card>

Make sure <media card support> is "on"

Make sure <mass storage mode support> is "on"

And say "Yes" to <auto enable mass storage mode when connected>

After all of the above press escape key [key to right of trackball]

Scroll to "save" and press trackball to save the settings.

From then on, whenever you plug in the USB cable to the Pearl, Windows Xp will recognize the MicroSD as a "drive" or folder and open up Windows Explorer.

3. There are video threads discussing how to convert, etc. See my post where I talk about using Super C.

Also here is a thread where I provide samples for you to put on to the 8100 and try out:

Hold down the ALT button and the BACK button at the same time will show you witch apps are running and from there you can go into each one and close them. Its called the application switcher. You can set either outside button to do this when pressed in the screen/keybored options.
