Switching from MP3 to AAC Without Losing Your Mind

I have Windows XP and had problems running Musicmatch, so I downloaded iTunes and it works the same as the iTunes in my iMac.

I tested ripping “Don’t Panic” by Coldplay both in MP3 at 192 Kbps = 3.3 Mb
and AAC at 192 Kbps = 3.2 Mb

People couldn’t tell me which sounds better.

A look at the iPod mini

So have I got this right, iPod mini is currently available in stores in the US? My friend is going to LA next week, do you think he will be able to get one for me or have they sold out or something?

(i’m from sweden and they are not available here until april and then it’s probably cost more than $349)

The iPod mini Reaction Roundup

Griffin iTrip, please! The old one works, but it looks awkward.

Ideally, make it blend into the body shape like a fitted white cap, same width and thickness as the mini. I guess it would have to be taller than the regular iTrip, since it couldn’t be as wide. (An overhanging T effect wouldn’t look too good.)

How to import CD tracks to iTunes

azdude_15gb: thanks.

I also just saw the reply up at the top of this page that answered my question days before I even asked it… Maybe I should look more carefully next time!

Yes.  That option is in the Importing tab of the Preferences window.

How to import CD tracks to iTunes

I am using PC (Windows) to upload my cd’s to my iPOD.  Everything works and it’s all pretty straight forward except, I’m not getting the CDDB to upload my track lists, it’s like it does not link up at all?  Any suggestions on what I’m doing wrong?

really? i thought you would’ve been happier getting a 15GB iPod for the same price.
BTW jogging with a hard-drive based player is not cool, no matter how good the player looks.  just get a small flash player that takes memory cards.

Dont think that there is any difference to the skip protection…  it will still skip after 20 mins… 

Apple really needs to fix that!

iPods for Windows: It's a good thing?

Ephpod or Itunes will do just fine.  BTW why can’t you use MusicMatch “Junk"box that comes with your iPod?

Read some of the other posts and make a choice..Musicmatch is big and slow. but pretty easy to get to grips with… personally I prefer Ephpod.  iTunes is pretty, and eventually you’ll be able to purchase legal downloads through it too.

Hope this helps.

How to create smart playlists in iTunes

I have a 20gb 3rdG iPod arriving from the USA on wednesday. I have been using RealOne Player (previously real jukebox) for years, have in excess of 5GB of music which is constantly being added to. I like to keep my music very well organised, in folders by artist/album etc. When my iPod arrives, im reluctant to stop using RealOne Player, as i am very used to the interface. Could someone with experience of both RealOne Player AND iTunes advice me on i will miss any of the functionality, organisation and interface of RealOne if i switch to iTunes. And does iTunes restrict any of your rights to use/transfer mp3s which you already had on your harddrive. Also, i am running windows xp, is there any reason to run musicmatch jukebox instead of iTunes? Thanks to anyone who just read through that, and even more thanks to anyone who responds.

How to import CD tracks to iTunes

I’m sure I saw the answer to this somewhere on this site but I can’t find it now so apologies for repeating the question…

I’ve now got my iPod and I’m ploughing my way through a pile of CDs ripping them to iTunes. Is there any way to automate it so that it automatically starts the import and then ejects the CD at the end? I’m using iTunes on WinXP.

Thanks

How to create smart playlists in iTunes

azdude,
thanks….but does this “preference>importing” on Itunes convert from AAC to MP3 or does it just import straight as MP3.  I’ve heard when converting from AAC to MP3 there is a slight loss in quality.  If I do change over to Itunes so I can create smart playlists, I have 2 questions:
1)  DO I definitely have to uninstall my MMJB (which I’m in for about $70 w/upgrades) in order for my IPOD to be recognized?  (I had problems before)

2)  Will Itunes automatically recognize “my music library” that was in MMJB, and put it in Itunes?
I appreciate the assistance.  Thankfully we have these forums.

It should be called the chavpod or the pauperpod, bringing out a cheap version is like bringing out a budget version of a Jaguar car.

Apple, Noooo!

How to create smart playlists in iTunes

OK, it just clicked. I was trying to add to the playlist already on iTunes before I had gotten and added my iPod. Now I see with the iPod connected the new playlist are on the iPod it self and thus music can be draged and dropped on it.

A look at the iPod mini

After seeing the 1GB Microdrive in the posts above, I still think Apple made a HUGE mistake in making a 4GB Mini as the first model for $249.

I understand about selling coolness and size and agree that the mini vs. 15GB is a stupid argument.

I have owned two 10GB iPods, Gen 1 and Gen 3, and when I was at Macworld if Apple introduced the Mini in a 1GB size for $169 or less, I would have bought one on the spot for it’s small size and form factor.

I have a 10GB 500mhz iBook and a 867 Quicksilver and use a keydrive to move small files and use the iPod to move larger files and to sync documents.

If I could have a 1GB firewire Hard Drive that is SMALL and PLAYS MUSIC, for less than $150, I’d be in HEAVEN! 

They should have used the 1GB micro drive at a sub $200 price point and introduced the 4GB later.

Think of the ads, 4 times the space for only $50 more! Everyone would have been happy including those who argue about the 15GB vs Mini.

A look at the iPod mini

If Apple intends to market the mini to people who work out with it, my question is this:  Are there any improvements in the skip protection with the new one?

Until I got an armband for my 3G iPod, it was somewhat useless while wearing it on my belt, as after 20 minutes or so into my run, it would skip badly.  If this deficiency was improved, it might motivate me to get one.

Does anyone have any info about this?
