I added a bunch of new albums to my music disk. When resizing the main coverart (Folder.jpg) some files are resized (to 500x500 at 500KB), but with some other files I get an error message "Acces to the path D:\Muziek\Rock\....etc. is denied" when trying to overwrite the files to 500x500.

What goes wrong here? scratching

Regards,
Stanley

Insurance is valid for one transport route = one transport document ('Waybill'). The way you suggested requires each person sending the cable ('Shipper')
to request insurance (pay extra premium for it) to cover the goods from loss during transport. If you request 'full insurance', goods value has to be declared
on transport document. Now 'beloved Customs Officers' have easy job.

The other way is your direct contract with some Insurance Company to which you declare shipment of goods and request insurance for it. For the company
this is standard and obvious route for doing business, but for individuals think it is harder or even not possible at all...

Hi Peter,

Do I understand it right when I see this identical with the black wire that we detached in the right portion of the NOS1 (coming from the USB port) and the isolation of the Silverstone USB controller card from the PC chassis ?

Hey George,

As for insurance, think it is better to use PayPal and arrange each new recipient send full cable value to YFS (or VJ?) and YFS (or VJ) return funds to previous
person in the circle, upon new recipient receipt confirmation. Or delivery monitored through courier's tracking system. Here we do not have PayPal option "Send
Money to a Friend" (no P.Pal fees) but think it should be available in most EU countries?

This part is beyond me. Are you talking about ensurance of "not getting lost" by the courier and such ? Doesn't look like it ? Anyway I did ...

Regards,
Peter

There is a possibility for YFS to use "ATA Carnet" and send f.e. cable to you (as Phasure) or any other company. ATA Carnet will allow clearing customs w/out
paying the duties/taxes, up to 12 months. This is normally used for all intl. exhibitions & fairs. Goods have to be returned or duties paid - Carnet closed.

Hahaha, challenged you eh ? Yes, I could have put a couple of beers on you responding first.
But you also touch the subject I wanted to leave out in my post because I thought it would come up anyway. So, those taxes ...

People who ship the cable should take care to ensure the cable for 500 euros BUT not indicate that value. Merely think about 15 euros or so. Now the tax will be free (or otherwise almost be free) while the cable is still ensured for 500. Especially with normail mail this will work, though it may depend a bit on the ensured money. So think like this : I can choose (over here) for standard ensurance (50 IIRC) or "more" and the more is maximised to 500 euros. Costs 10 more for the shipping. When the cable gets lost all can be justified and the how we'll see when it is necessary. One thing to remember : nothing is wrong with this because nobody is keeping the cable; I would be able to deal with this and when in order (when necessary I mean) I will do it.

In any event nobody is allowed to neglegt this or otherwise e.g. we will need to be 80 euros VAT + import duties (something like 14) and this is nonsense in this case. And, it can't be made clear (to customs etc.) anyway so forget about that (really).

Please notice that this will already be in order for when it is shipped from the US to here. And *now* I don't know about normal mail because while it should arrive it can take 4 weeks (but 1 week will be normal). So it's the combination of
a. being able to value it low
b. still be able to ensure that high.
And for example when we ship something this can't be done (this combination) unless it's a gift or repair or something like that.

think it's much easier to circulate the cable inside EU countries only.

Doesn't help, because especially there there's VAT in order (like 21% over here). This VAT will be charged by customs.
Companies can get back that VAT but most of us are not companies.

- Serbia (there it will be lost, so good idea to have that as the last one).
...

Ahahahah  smile
Next time you better spend few cents more and send envelope as registered mail. You know, the ones with big "R" sticker and some numbers on them Happy

Now seriously, since there is no "a" or "B75" NOS1 here (AFAIK), plus Serbia is not member of EU community, there would be additional expense on receiver's
account on import tax + duty fees (approx 30% on goods + transport value) plus additional 'trouble' w/ Customs Officers on returning the goods, think it's
much easier to circulate the cable inside EU countries only.

Brgds,
George

Hey All,

As many of you will know, the middle switch in the NOS1a received the application of lifting a ground wire - the famous "black wire" to the PSU screw in the right leg.

If you did not receive information about this (per the email which announces the new DC Offset etc.) then you will not have this new Sw#3 application. Generally though this has been applied for everybody on the list from of position 12. Notice that all of you received your position when you applied for the upgrade.
Notice that the exception for first serve first come has been new customers, and those who were "above" number 12 on the list because of this are named by initials :
AK
PC
So these two persons did not receive any position, but they don't have the Sw#3 application anyway. Now :

A VERY complicated issue has come up (for me I mean), but when people are comparing USB cables they should do so with Switch #3 Up (off - ground cable lifted).

But to keep in mind - like the email will have told you - it is not guaranteed that this will give a stable situation; think similar as pulling the USB cable with PC and power amps on, that giving an oscillating sound (DC Offset not stable). This implies that you can use all with Sw#3 up, but you should never leave all alone at night etc. because the oscillation may start unexpectedly (and it will not stop automatically). Trying it out is harmless because you will know soon enough when something is not completely right - but be there when it happens (it is quite harmless and I guess we all know about pulling the USB cable from the normal NOS1-USB).

Those who do not have the Sw#3 application can mimic the same by (again) removing the black wire from that PSU screw. BUT they should not do that for the reason just given : you can't easily reconnect it when going to sleep etc.
No worries that you (first 11 + 2 on the list) can not use this. Others will (hopefully) tell about differences and when for the better you can apply the wire to the switch (already there) yourself. I will explain (later) in that case, but then at least you do it for a good reason (USB cables again don't matter much).

Meanwhile please pay attention to SQ in general when you try this. It could be better - it could be worse. A bit difficult when you'd eliminate the USB cable influence at the same time, so try to incorporate (interpret) the actual two changes at the same time.

I also have to notice that Sw#3 Up is consistent with the USB isolation at the PC side but at this moment I can not tell whether it is required to have the isolation at that side. So if you report your findings it is actually worth while to mention whether you applied that isolation at the PC side or not. Just try it as you have it, but report what the situation is.
N.b.: This all is/was about the Silverstone PCIe USB3 card. I myself have this isolated and Sw#3 always up, and nothing ever woke me up. But as said, that is the consistent situation.

Now I am curious ...

VJ,

If this is not first come first serve, then think something like this (I'll name countries with existing NOS1(a) customers only) :

From north to south (for the other way around start at the bottom Wink) :

- Finland
- Norway
- United Kingdom
- Netherlands
- Belgium
- Germany
- Austria
- Switzerland
- France (the one in here will never announce himself)
- Monaco
- Spain
- Hungary
- Serbia (there it will be lost, so good idea to have that as the last one).

All will do fairly well with normal mail and including a 500 euro ensurance count 20 euros for the mail costs per transfer. Shipping will be 2-3 days from each country to the other, supposed that the sequence I mentioned is obeyed.
Not so for Serbia (sorry you there).

And who was the guy I sent something in to in NL for 3 times in a row, all lost ? I forgot (banned it from my mind). So he must be counted out. LOL.

Did I forget a country ? please say so.

VJ, I must say, very nice initiative. I'd also have to say though that if the list grows significantly maybe the manufacturer/supplier can consider two of them to go round ? I suppose he finds it worth while if the list is large enough anyway.

Peter
