No Kevin I do not know, nor was I referring to your mother's maiden name, just to the fact that you do not need a password to transfer files from an SD card to a PC. I assume you know the password, if one is set, to your PC start screen.

If you need a password to back up files to  third party storage system, then that's another story. Personally, I never use third party hosting, as I like to retain control of who can find access to my files, but levels of personal data security is for everyone to decide for themselves.

The 'cloud' is simply someone else's computer storage system. I prefer to use my own drives (storage) which are generally not subject to interference from hackers.

Also, not dependent on having an Internet connection. One can access the images anywhere they have their computer.

Hi Jeff.  Thank you for your reply. The point is that “ I don’t know much about converting my Terrier to DCC “ let alone adding sound. And I even know less about my Laptop as I have been using my iPad. And we:off topic   have taken the wrong path .   Best wishes Kevin

One thing at a time Kevin. Plan the 0-4-0 decoder installation, assemble everything you need and then do it.

With a good plan and everything laid out ready, it will done in no time and give you the confidence for others.

In the meantine, put the Terrier out of you mind. It's not going anywhere.

Bill

Hi Bill.  Yeah. If I could only stick to that practice, I would have progressed much further along the track. I always have more than one job on the go at any one time. Leaving so many projects waiting on the side lines.Best wishes Kevin

Then just do it Kevin and once completed, give yourself a pat on the back and you will avoid a great deal of frustration for yourself and everyone else!

Hi Kevin,

Still not done yet? Just to get you going, take 5 over a cuppa and write a list of what you need and status - you have it, you need to find it, you need to order it or go shopping. Piece of paper, stick it on the fridge door, doesn't need an iPad, laptop or cloud, or passwords for that matter.

Nigel

Hi Nigel. Thank you. The password thing came into it because backup was mentioned, and if I have to stop half way through an email or a YMRC message it disappears and I have to begin again. And that is a right PITA .  Best wishes Kevin

Hi Kevin,

Probably best if you start a new topic on your computer issues as they have little to do with how to to put a decoder in the Terrier or the Pug.

Did you find that missing decoder or get a practice one?

Nigel

Hi Nigel.  Thank you. With regards to computers, the topic got derailed on” Post 54 “. The missing Decoder wasn’t missing after all, I just kept passing it by.   Best wishes Kevin

Hi Kevin,

Game on then! Is that is the decoder for the Terrier or for the pug? I wouldn't advise on using an expensive sound decoder for a first try at wiring in a decoder. Cheapo Digitrax or Bachmann/Hornby.

Nigel

Hi Nigel.   Thank you. This Decoder is a digitrax dz126,  Nothing fancy I will investigate the Terrier first as I know that it has been done . But if I was an expert I would try Sounds as well , and there is a L&Y Pug on a YouTube video, with a very impressive sound job .  Best wishes Kevin

'Not guilty your honour', I think you'll find it was post 50 Kevin, not my post 54 response in trying to help you!

I know that rule one applies to most everything, but why have we been talking about a Pug at some length?

Oh well, the Terrier it is then, bon courage yet again,

Bill

Hi Bill, the Terrier got sidelined about post 30 due to a missing chip, the Pug was introduced as a temporary replacement service and given the green light but the missing chip was found and the Terrier seams to have returned to the main line and the Pug returned to the sidings with its body off. .. . The sound chip was in the 08. . . Oh no Nigel was talking sound not you. . . 
 Keep up man !    :mutley


Cheers

Matt

Well that's easy for you to say Matt, but my brain hurts. Perhaps I need a re-chip to decode this thread. Now where's the nearest Curry's?
