Thanks!  I will check her out.  I ordered Jem's CD from her website for $10 tonight (Media Play doesn't have it).

I also heard her on the OC (can't wait till it starts back in Nov.)  I just never thought about checking her out.  

Glad I did.

Tonight I was checking my email using comcast's webmail and they had a link to a new album from someone I haven't ever heard of, Jem

Wow, I'm completely impressed.  I can't really describe her sound and I'm nowhere near as talented as rmorton or trigger at eloquently describing music so I guess you'll just have to check it out for yourself.  

A little more about her from

Billed as a 'Welsh songstress' Jem Griffiths released a 5 song EP last year and garnered critical acclaim. Born in Wales, Jem started writing songs at age 11 and got her first mini studio at 13. While in school, Jem pursued her musical interests by working on production at UK festivals and promoting Skint Records acts such as Fatboy Slim and Lo-Fi Allstars. She then hooked up with DJ Adam Freeland and helped set up and manage the specialist underground breakbeat imprint, Marine Parade. On top of this, Jem started DJ'ing and promoting DJ nights in Brighton and London. After a series of twists and turns, Jem knew it was time to exit the behind-the-scenes side of the industry and follow her dreams of becoming a singer. Her successes during the last two years have shown that she's made the right decision. Jem also co-wrote the track "Nothing Fails" with Guy Sigsworth and Madonna, which Madonna recorded for her American Life album. This new album has become the soundtrack for the FOX network. The album's lead single, "They," is one of several cuts used in the new Friday night series, Wonderfalls, while another song, "Just a Ride," will be featured both on The O.C. and the show's upcoming soundtrack.

I can say that I will without a doubt purchase her CD tomorrow.  Heck, I
would go get it tonight if somewhere was open. smile

Thanks Fox!

This game has easily become my 2nd most looked-forward-to game each year.  Right after ESPN NFL 2kx and right before ESPN Baseball 2kx.

IMO, VC does an EXCELLENT college basketball game.

I can't wait for this one.


I agree lockdown, I'm all over this one.  I don't care for the NBA, but college basketball is a different story.  If only VC would make another college football game using the 2K5 engine.  I would be set smile

The World Exclusive Review of Halo 2: Yes, it's true. Fourteen pages of The Big One. It's the feature you've been waiting to read in a magazine for three years, and we've got it before anyone else. Editor in Chief Rob Smith and I had the unique privilege of doing nothing but play Halo 2 from start to finish in our own little office at Bungie (it was actually The Clubhouse for those of you who watched the Bungie Video Update), and we bent deadlines and sacrificed sleep to do it. We'll certainly start a Halo 2 Q&A thread once you guys start to get your issues, but until then I'll enjoy being the only person outside of Microsoft (along with Rob) to know everything about Halo 2 for another 30 days. =)

-World Exclusive Prince of Persia: Warrior Within Review: Does Ubisoft Montreal do it again? The answer will shock you! It's only in Official Xbox Magazine.

-Xbox 2 Rumor Mole Special!: The facts, the fiction, and the pure speculation!

-Reviews of, uh, pretty much everything! Including: Kingdom Under Fire: The Crusaders, Leisure Suit Larry: Magna *** Laude, Mortal Kombat: Deception, OutRun 2, Tony Hawk's Underground 2: World Destruction Tour, X-Men Legends, ESPN NBA 2K5, and NBA Live 2005. Plus a ton more...

-A Hero's Guide to Albion: The lead tester at Big Blue Box shares some cool stuff you didn't even know you could do in Fable.

-Another amazing demo disc! A play-it-before-you-can-buy-it playable demo of Prince of Persia: Warrior Within, Dead or Alive Ultimate, The Incredibles, Conflict: Vietnam, ESPN NFL 2K5, The Dukes of Hazzard, and a hidden Easter egg demo of a certain Japanese title that isn't coming out here in the U.S. You can probably guess what it is, and I guarantee you guys will be lighting up this forum trying to crack the code to play the game!

2783  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / DVD-R Drive Help on: October 21, 2004, 06:36:57 PM
So I tried it on my lunch break today and it didn't work.

First I made sure the cables were in and everything looked fine.

I uninstalled the drive from Device Manager and rebooted.  XP found new hardware, first saying "Found Pioneer DVR 108", then saying Found CD Drive.  I then launched Nero to see if it worked and it still gets hung up on the "Scanning SCSI/IDE Bus".  I then put CD 1 from Rome Total War in and it wouldn't load.  It spun like it was going to load though.

Do you think I need to reformat?

If so, if the IDE bus is corrupted or something, would I even be able to boot to the XP CD?  

That's the last time I'll ever unhook my components to help out a friend...

2787  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / DVD-R Drive Help on: October 21, 2004, 02:50:13 PM
Quote from: "Jeff Jones"
XP is notorious for mislabeling CD/DVD drives in Explorer, and it usually doesn't matter.

After you make sure the IDE cables are 100% fully inserted ... here's the progression I would take:

1.) go into device manager and remove the device. Right click the Pioneer, and then click 'Uninstall', power off then back on, and let XP add it back automatically.

if that fails:

2) if nothing is on IDE2, put the DVDR on the IDE2 chain. Power up, and see what happens.

Btw ... look at the heads on the IDE cable you're using. Look where the pins are, and make sure there's not lint, or worse, a small metal shaving down in there touching the pins, that can screw things up. I've had that happen before and it drove me nuts trying to figure it out.

If all fails, try the DVD-R in another PC, just to make sure it's ok.

Thanks for the advice.  I'll check it out on my lunch break today at 1:00.  I sure hope it works smile
2788  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / DVD-R Drive Help on: October 21, 2004, 01:25:03 PM
FYI, I took the whole IDE cable out so it's possible it isn't hooked up correctly.

It's on IDE1, jumpered as cable select I believe.   It's the only drive on IDE1, my HD is SATA.  I normally hook another DVD Drive up to the same cable, but I've taken it out of the picture until I figure this out.
2789  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / DVD-R Drive Help on: October 21, 2004, 01:16:56 PM
I have a DVD-R that was been working flawlessly for me since I bought it a month ago.  Last night I unhooked it from the IDE cable, to temporarily hook up a friends hard drive.  

I hooked it back up last night and it isn't working right.  It's getting power just fine, but windows xp sees it as a CD Drive now, where as before the only time it showed it as a CD drive is if a CD was in it.  An empty drive would be shown as a DVDRW, drive with a DVD in it DVD etc.  

That isn't the problem though.  I tried to copy a DVD last night and Nero got hung up on the Scanning SCISI/IDE Bush.  I then tried to put a DVD in the drive to see if it would run. No luck.

I don't think the drive is messed up at all.  It appears to be a config setting of some type that is screwed.  When booting up the drive is recognized as a Pioneer DVDR108 ATA66.  That isn't normal is it?  That speed probably doesn't matter as much on a DVD drive as it does a HD, but I'm almost positive that is normally much higher (133 maybe).

Does it sound like it's hooked up incorrect?  Or I need to reinstall something?  Or am I just screwed all together?  

Thanks in advance for any help smile

I don't think Halo 2 will have a hard time living up to the hype.  Honestly, it's more of the same, with sharper graphics, some new gameplay twists, better designed maps, and live play.  I'm sure MS has nothing to worry about... smile

Killer Instinct will be a launch title for Xbox 2 slywink
