  • After the purchase of CS5, update online to CS6, I reimagee the hard drive. How to return to CS6?

    After the purchase of CS5 converted (boxed), CS6 update online, I had to reimage my hard drive. How to return with CS6 5 without the physical copy?

    you need not install cs5 in order to install your cs6 upgrade.

    After starting the installation of the cs6, you will be asked your cs6 serial number.  the installation program recognizes who is a serial number update and search your system for your cs5.  failing to find that it will ask for your serial number cs5.  After the introduction, the installation will pronounce.

    If you wanted to install cs5 and cs6, you can:

    If you follow the 7 steps you can directly download a free trial here: http://prodesigntools.com/all-adobe-cs5-direct-download-links.html

    and activate it with your serial number.

    If you have a problem from the download, you follow the 7 steps, or your browser does not accept cookies.

    the most common problem is caused by failing to meticulously follow the steps 1, 2, and/or 3 (which adds a cookie to your system, allowing you to download the correct version of the adobe.com site).

  • Edition of the details on songs in iTunes does not appear on the Windows song

    Here, I'm just change in some missing details on songs I have on iTunes, as fill for composers, missing the album artists, genre, etc... However, when I close iTunes and look at the details of the song in my folder on Windows 10, details I have briefed on iTunes isn't there, so it is always white.

    When I opened iTunes again, details, which I have added to these songs are still showed it. I tried to delete the songs in the iTunes list and still adding them and I always see these details, but I still don't see anything on the file when he looks in the Windows folder.

    I opened the song on Windows Media Player and Microsoft Groove, and the details are not there. How can I fix? I want to add these songs on my Android phone as well, but it includes also the fixed details, I put in the songs on iTunes.

    Several tags (Mp3 files only)

    The ID3 specification allows files to have several tags in different versions and languages, but iTunes does not work properly with simple tags. When multiple tags are present it can sometimes do not apply updates to the tag that reads back (probably update one of the others in the file) and it is also possible that the iPod and iTunes may have different rules for the tag that they give priority to. This could lead to situations where everything is properly organized in iTunes, but then inexplicably collapses on an iPod, or tracks that display different information in Windows Explorer or another media player. There are tags 3rd party editors that allow to manipulate several tags, but I don't have a casual recommendation. A workaround in iTunes is to use the context menu convert the ID3 Tags... > None a few times to remove all the labels, then convert ID3 Tags... > v2.3 to build a cool tag with information still held in the iTunes database. I've read in the past that iTunes is not completely compatible with the specification v2.4, although this may be the case, support is more however for v2.3 is widespread, then I would say using v2.3 to v2.4. All embedded work will be deleted so it must be replaced if wanted. For Windows users running a script named CreateFolderArt before and after the cleaning process tag should handle this.

    I've just updated to Firefox 13.0 (I use a MacBook OSX 10.5.8 running). She started very well, but my favorites are now gone. When I opened the menu bookmark is completely empty - as if I just started to use Firefox for the first time. Is there anyway to get back them? Or find a backup on my computer somewhere?
