Hi guys, be gentle, your my first stop after 2 days of toil, trying to get this thing working how I want, on my own. I think the best way for me to hopefully get help off you guys, is tell you what I used to do on my PC, and what I now need to do on my mac. but really can not get even close, after 2 days of pulling my hair out. Anyway, I run a successful gaming website that has a weekly podcast, it has been running for 2 years and has a 9k subscription base on itunes. OK, the things I used my old pc for, were the following.... Skype..with the essential "MXskyperecorder", to record the 2 sometimes 3 man podcast show. "Audacity" to then edit the MP3 file, and insert additional jingles , again in MP3 form to finish and finalise the show. NOW what I'm really struggling with on my new mac book, that quite simply must work for me to have made the right decision in moving to a MAC... OK, I have Skype working nicely... However I cannot find a working recorder that will work with sky and let me record in MP3 format.(does mxskyperecorder even do a Mac version?) More importantly, I have just this evening using your forums here, found something out that has caused a bigger problem for me now, and that is, my 3.5 jack mic/headset I see, criminally doesn't work on my Mac, this is a major problem for me, but one could be rectified with a USB headset (I think, please advise on this idea, can I use a standard 2x3.5 jack headset, 1 for headset, 1 for mic on the mac book??). Some minor things I cant get to work either, are my Printer, which is actually connected to my pc, and my wireless network.(this was just hard to get anything done at all, and I gave up) Ipod touch, again synced and used fully on my PC, now just throws up messages on my mac saying its registered to another pc, and the choices are either erase and sync, or check for purchased items, both of which are not what I want, I wanted the stuff that's on there now, 8gigs worth, to literally sync to the mac, and I can then use my mac as its main syncing machine.(is that even possible?) So guys, a lot I know, but I hopefully you guys are going to try and make me feel I haven't wasted a hell of a lot of money...which right now, after 2 days of, nothing but struggling, starting to think like I have......restore my faith guys...lol Thanks in advance for any help.
