Pandora timeshifting guide for XP and Vista.


Recommended Posts

I have recently spend a few hours trying to make a guide on how to rip songs from Pandora on Vista and XP.

You will need:


Any version of firefox. http://getfirefox.com

Flash Player 8

1.) Download ripping client

The only one that i found that gets ID3 tags and album art is 'PandoraRip'

You can get it from http://www.geopacket.com/PandoraRip/.

There is more information on it at http://forums.hak5.org/index.php/topic,8024.0.html.

2.) install FLASH 8

I got it from http://kb.adobe.com/selfservice/viewConten...rnalId=tn_14266 (adobe).

Close all browsers.

uninstall all earlier versions of flash.

Extract the fp8_archive.zip to a folder.

Install flashplayer8r22_win.exe and flashplayer8r22_winax.exe under .fp8_archivefp8_archiver22

3.) XP SP2 Compatibility mode and administrator. (VISTA ONLY)

Go to properties on PandoraRip-1070.exe

Set Compatibility mode to 'Windows XP (Service Pack 2)'

Check 'Run this program as an administrator'. (needed to read firefox cache files)

Go to properties on Firefox

width=321 height=550http://32bites.com/img/firexofproperties.png[/img]

Set Compatibility mode to 'Windows XP (Service Pack 2)'

width=472 height=535http://32bites.com/img/firexofproperties2.png[/img]

4.) Run PandoraRip

Run PandoraRip-1070.exe.

Go to the 'Terms of Service Tab'.

Check 'I accept and agree to be bound by the Terms of Service EULA'.

Click 'Rock On'. (minimizes it to system tray)

5.) Open firefox.

Open firefox and go to http://pandora.com/

PandoraRip will tell you when you download new songs.

(Pandora must stay open for it to keep getting songs)

6.) Engoy the music.

Your music will be in the 'PandoraRip' folder on your desktop.
