Switching from MP3 to AAC Without Losing Your Mind

Ha Ha, the problem I was having was that I have 2 CD/DVD drives (one being the CD-RW), so I couldnt see the CD from Itunes. Put the CD in the other drive and now I am happy importer. Doh! If only I can work out how I get sound back….........

Hmm, it should work with no tinkering.  I am not insulting your inteligence, but you did highlight them all before ripping?  Have a look at what your settings are in case there is something squiffy.

MusicMatch?  I never got on with it.  iTunes just appears to be a whole new concept!

*** PROBLEM RIPPING with iTUNES 4 for WINDOWS ***

I tried ripping one of my commercial CDs on my Windows XP PC, using iTUNES 4 for Windows.

On popping the CD in the drive, iTUNES recognizes the CD/songs correctly and lists all of them.

However, when I click on the"IMPORT” button, it just “steps” through every song on the CD quickly and just creates 4KB files on my hard disk (instead of actually converting them to AAC or MP3)!

Do I have to install something else or do something else to rip my CD collection using iTUNES?

By the way, MUSICMATCH rips these just fine to MP3!

iPod Adventures in the Middle East: Part I

Thinking about investing in an iPod. Can you record CDs on to them? Does it take long? Or do most people download songs from the internet?

Yeah you can, I have not found anything that it can’t do (well I have - more about that later).  To rip CDs, first, select the file type with Edit -> Preferences -> Importing.  Then slip your CD in, and iTunes should detect it and get the titles from CDDB, then highlight them all, right click and “Convert selection to ***”.  Dead easy.

The only thing I feel iTunes is lacking is the ability to delete music files directly from your hard drive instead of only from the database.

R O C K   O N !

All a bit new to this IPOD/ITUNES etc. Am I right in saying that I cannot RIP my comercial music CD’s to AAC/MP3 using ITUNES 4 (on windows XP) ??
If thats correct, what is a recommended way to do this? Music Match, Nero 6?

Thank you inadvance,

“How did they fit all that in there? That’s the first question you’ll ask after checking out the new co-branded Samsung Napster YP-910GS player/recorder ($399 street). This latest addition to Samsung’s YEPP line of digital-audio devices is roughly the same size as the Apple iPod, but the YP-910GS manages to cram in a lot of extras

Karma Pluses

OGG, FLAC support
Supported by a variety of WMA pay services
Slightly lighter and smaller than the ipod
Supported by All major Oses (OSX, Linux, BSD and Solaris with the lite version of the media manager software)
Ethernet Sync Dock
Jog Dial Interface

> AAC works a treat with Windows

This is true. I play AAC files on Windows using J River Media Centre.

iPod Adventures in the Middle East: Part I

t-slice
When Apple announced the first iPod I was serving 24 days of reserv (Israel Defece Force, I’m a veteren) on the Jordanian Border. So I took one day off, went 2 the bank, changed money and gave it to my girlfriend’s father.
When I got home, after 3 weeks I had one of the firs iPos in the ME (If not the first).
Murfy Law… My iPod was 4 sure the first broken in the ME. It was connected while my Mac went on sleep mode (Don’t try this at home!).
It still works but jams and skeeps alot.
Loved Your article, R u planning on continue it?

P.S. to all of those who jums: Me, Beeing In The Army Is NOT Political. It’s Mandatory. PEACE, SALAM.

“Our conclusion is that the Creative Labs Zen NX is the best-designed portable player around. Its perfectly acceptable size, gigantic storage capacity, good looks, good ergonomics and, above all, outstanding quality playback make this the best device of its kind on the market.”

Switching from MP3 to AAC Without Losing Your Mind

I have windows, and iTunes for Windows, and a LOT of mp3’s but now am starting to get a few files in AAC through iTues. I’m thinking about buying an iPod, but it says that it doesn’t support AAC from windows, is that true? So is there any way to switch from AAC to MP3 if it is?

iPods for Windows: It's a good thing?

no comments actually needed for this article, which hs proved itself terribly wrong. iPod now comes with USB 2.0 and iTunes is avaliable for Windows. “iPod for Windows exists, but real iPod users own a Mac” ?? Oh please, don’t be so colse-minded. I used to salivate for a Mac, but I no longer do. I want to be able to upgrade my PC slowly, without having to buy a whole new machine when some utility gets old. As far as I know, with Macs this is far more expensive (and with less choice) than PCs - if not virtually impossible. I want an iPod (will get mine in a short time) but I would certainly not switch to Mac because of it. I want my PC as well.
