I do not know why some of you are having problems and others not. I
suggest you try again and once more. Also open the sound in different
I have been using two methods to get the cassette sides to
FileFactory. The slowest is using the Web itself. The other is
to use FTP. I have four pieces of software to accomplish this. One is
Windows itself using DOS commands. I have managed to get this to work
but it would be quite time consuming. The second is provided by
Panix.com, called SecureFX, which I haven't persisted with long enough
to tweak it, though I use its UNIX shell method for e-mail and the Web
with great satisfaction. The third is with PowerDesk, a terrific file
manager. Drawback is that the files go to a generic folder called
FTP_Uploads. I then have to click individual files and move them to the
M-sets folder. A fourth is with FileFactory's own recommended freeware,
called FileZilla. It is easy to use and can upload a huge number of
files. (I am loading 1500+.) But I still have to check.
All of these suffer from what I think are broken Net connections.
I have not kept track of which method I used, but those using
FileZilla may be the culprit. Under edit|settings|transfers|file types,
the default is "auto." I can insist on ASCII or binary, if I wish. This
menu also says it "will treat the following filetypes as ASCII files."
The dropdown list does not include mp3. Two options are clicked by
default. One says "Treat file types without an extension as ASCII
files." The other says "Treat dotfiles as ASCII files."
Shall I take one file and send it in multiple ways and get several of
you to report back?
If you report that I should have been using binary, I'll have to redo
everything, since I don't know when I used FileZilla. This will be easy
to do, though long and tedious. And I still have to check to be sure
all files have been placed in the M-sets folder.
Meanwhile, I thought to arrange all the files by length and found there
were three that were ridiculously short. I got down the Ion Tape2PC
hardware, redid them, uploaded them, and moved them to the M-set
folder. (Actually, one is still in the works.)
And while fiddling, I restored one instance of an unissed M 108. This
is Stoky's Brahms 4th on 7-10" discs. Bill didn't specify his source,
though. Stoky's first issue of the music was with the All-American
The other aborted M 108 did get released but not in the U.S. It
was Casal's Beethoven 4th, with the Orquestra Pau Casals of Barcelona.
It is okay but nothing more than that. He became a great conductor only
in his old age. I used to have an LP of this, but it wasn't among the
usable tapes in Bill's collection.
I have found a few little errors in my spreadsheet and shall send a
Regards my not taking opera with Mr. Kitson: at Fountain Valley School
(a boarding school outside Colorado Springs) there were a large number
of optional "minor" courses, which met only twice a week. One history
teacher would concentrate on some historical personage, the physics
teacher would always teach a course in the Civil War.
But two were taught by faculty specializing in them. One was Walter
Wilson's art courses, the other Mr. Kitson's music courses. Everyone
was required to take them in the ninth grade, but it was optional in
later years. Jack Lane (who went on to direct the Brooklyn Art Museum,
the San Francsico Museum of Modern Art, and, until he retired, the
Dallas Art Museum) and I signed on for music together for the next two
years. But I disdained opera, leaving only Jack with Mr. Kitson in the
Of course, I regret not taking it now. I have disdained opera to the
present day, but I think it very likely that Mr. Kitson would have
shown me how to appreciate it.

take a look at this then
i have to change the file extension to mp 3 because there is no file
extension on the file
When I clicked on the first link I was led to a screen which required
$179 for the privilege of downloading cassettes of stuff that has
already been released on CD (ie: all of Stokowski's 78rpm sets).
Hmmm ... forget it.
if you click on Frank's first link, you get a list of files, click on
any one of those and go to the bottom of the screen. you get a "slow
or Fast" download option. Select Slow and you get a two word window
which you transcribe the words in the picture to the entry area and
then click on the submit button. you will have to wait 25 seconds or
so, then the screen is updated with a click here to download button.
Click on that button and then the standard gray download/save popup
will appear. select save and the data transfer to your PC/laptop will
commence. No asking for $$ no torrent message/window.
