Hi All,
I hope some one can help me with this frustrating problem Iím having with my Pismo.
The problem isÖ not being able to chose an alert sound other than SimpleBleep that will remain after shut down or restart. If I select say Submarine, after starting up Pismo, itís changed back to SimpleBleep . Argh!!! This never used to be a problem and I think it started to happen after installing Iomega Zip drive software of iTunes.
Any thoughts on this matter would gratefully received.
By the way, Iím running OS 9.04. I donít know if this OS has strange preferences to ignore the preferences of itís owner!Hi All,

By the way if any one knows how to remove unwanted ISP names from the control strip short cut for Remote access, I be grateful too.

Many thanks,
DNA man

It sounds like you need to trash your sound preferences file. It may be corrupt. Drag it to the trash, restart your Pismo, empy the trash, reset your sound preferences (in the sound control panel, including your new alert sound), then restart and see what happens on start up.

The only way I know of getting rid of ISPs in your remote access control strip is deleting them. If that's what you want to do, open remote access, go file->configuration... and then delete the ones you don't want.

Hope that helped!

Many thanks Bradoesch, those suggestions both worked a treat! Thanks for your help.
