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?

How to create playlists in iTunes

I’d like to clear some songs out of my library, but keep them on my iPod the next time I do a transwfer. Is this possible?

A look at the iPod mini

For all those of you wondering who Apple is marketing to….
I’m in my mid-thirties.  I just figured out what an iPod was over Christmas.  I really don’t listen to that much music.  I would like to have an iPod for at the gym, beach, and for jogging.  That’s about it.  It will look great matching with my designer handbags too.  There you have it.  All I want is a cute little music machine that can stick with me for exercise, etc.  Oh…the downloading of songs off the internet sounds easy too.  I’ve never downloaded a single song yet.   

For those of you who love music….buy the more expensive ones.  I’ll be waiting for my mini in Feb.

A look at the iPod mini

After grabbing some thick cardboard and cutting out a piece 3.6 X 2.0 it is only then that you truely realise what a mini marvel this is going to be. This will overtake it’s big brother as Apples No1 selling player. I own the 5GB and 20GB model and will be adding this beauty to my collection. Well done Apple!

Am I right in thinking the UK won’t get it until April 2004?

If that’s the case, then I will be calling on some of my American buddies to ship one out to me immediately.

Jeezus.  If YOU don’t like it, DON’T buy one.
I have talked to MANY people who are/will.
I am one - my wife didn’t want an iPod until now.
I paid $500 for a 5GB model.
I just paid $225 for a new pink Mini.
I’m happy with every iPod I’ve bought owned.
If you think it’s stupid, STFU and don’t buy one.

Simple, eh?

How to create smart playlists in iTunes

Am I missing something? I have alot of musuc loaded on my iPod and have cleaned out the library on my desktop. How can I create s
Smart Playlists with the music on my iPod. Do you have to do this before you transfer the music to the iPod or can you upload the Smart Playlist to the iPod to organize what is already on the iPod. I tried drag and drop and could not get it to work.

A look at the iPod mini

However, upon reflection of the product and the company in general, Apple has the ability and an obligation infact, to price the ipod mini at the price it is at, as these products have a powerful brand image, and the pricing strategy maintains this.

But that doesn’t mean I have to buy one either…^_^

“After all, many have been paying $200 for a 256MB player”

This may be true but was a better product out on the market at the same time?
