  • PalmOS Software for DOS MP3 Player?

    Does anyone know of any PalmOS programs that will control any of the DOS MP3 Players? I really like the Winamp/PalmAmp combination as a control interface, but I'd rather use DOS as my OS since I can turn it off without doing a shutdown. Can anyone help?

    I don' think that is possible. To use the Palm you have to have the palm software installed (correct me if I'm wrong) and that software only works with windows or MAC OS 8.5 +.

      Yeah, you are If you want to use the Palm for its normal purpose, it's true that you'd have to use the Palm Desktop software. However, any program that uses serial port communication can interface with the Palm if there's a program on the Palm to communicate back. That's just what PalmAmp does - there's a PC program (or rather, Winamp Plugin) that communicates with a Palm program. However, I know nothing about any DOS MP3 players, so I don't even know if they could use plugins or something similar.

        Hey, give me a tiny bit of credit, I got it half right. (I'm getting ready for school) Seriously though, the place that would have the program that your looking for would be on <A HREF="http://"www.zdnet.com\downloads"" TARGET=_blank> ZDNET</A> or <A HREF="http://"www.visorvillage.com"" TARGET=_blank> Visor Village</A> or <A HREF="http://"www.palmgear.com"" TARGET=_blank> Palmgear </A>. That's probably enough to get you started. If one of these sites don't have it then either you have to pay alot for it, or it doesn't exist.

          I was looking at the TI-85-92 for teh same thing, and if [the palm] can give out standard RS232 signals, you can rig up something like DAMP in order to accept serial-based controls. Hopefully you have the thing to program PALM stuff
          however, if you want to use that spcific program for winamp, that would be tough cuz you'd have to find out specifically what is going on between the palm and winamp. but have fun and explore! A good idea would be to make a frontend shell running on the serial port, and program the DAMP plugins to read the serial port... that should do the trick!
