iPods for Windows: It's a good thing?

Interesting article, but what are you actually saying? Is this about the Ipod, or a windows bashing article?

Why are you so evangelical about getting people to switch to a Mac?

I’ve used PC’s for many years, managed networks etc.

Your point is?  I am literate, and have read the rest of your posts..Infact you might even notice that I was agreeing with you..until you decided to become personally offensive.

But seeing as your opinion is that much more important and valid than mine, or anyone elses, I’ll leave you to it.  I’m sure there are other forums I can ask my questions in.

You may notice who was the first person to post anything in this thread.

Dude, you’re an SA, that means you get to sit in a little room looking after a bunch of servers.  Not too much social interaction, as you’ve already managed to prove.

iPods for Windows: It's a good thing?

Well, I think you’re overestimating the value of what you’re posting.

We were having a pretty normal Mac/PC conversation - it’s actually not unusual for Mac and PC people to, um, disagree.

You weigh in with your ‘Will you lot please stop this p**sing contest’ (quote), then proceed to say because you support some trading floor application that you must be the expert and we should all listen to the gospel according to Peshman.

Well, I run a network with over 9,000 stations on it. We’ve got PCs, Macs, Unix, Xenix, Linux, IBM and HP systems running in a heterogenous intercontinental WAN. There’s 6 of us sitting here laughing at you waving your little ‘trading floor’ pecker around.

Frankly, your stupid little trading floor system doesn’t impress me. I suggest you get the f

iPods for Windows: It's a good thing?

Jonny!  Can you please try and add something valuable to this thread, if you really can’t manage that then please just go away and play outside with the other children.

Now that we;ve cleared that up, tell me, do you have an answer to the question in my previous post?

This forum is for constructive criticism and help, or at least that is what most of us are posting here for. Please try and add something along these lines.  I can’t ask you any more politely. If you can’t do it, I’m sure the mods would be more than happy to lock you out.

Wishing for a play queue for iPod

Trevor…good post but your examples are a little off.  While they may be true they don’t really apply here.  Since the new iPods have the on the go playlists, Apple obviously has the software code to do it.  All they have to do is take a very small amount of time and do an easy firmware update.  They aren’t doing it because they want people to sell and buy new.  Your examples don’t fit because they are all hardware issues.  This is a software issue and is easily fixed.

How to import CD tracks to iTunes

mkratty and bill (and myself).....

I think I have found a way to get around the deleting of files on the PC whilst retaining them on the iPod issue. I think that if you delete the .mp3 file on your hard disk manually but don’t delete the iTunes library entry, you will get an error (i) icon next to that tune in the library, but iTunes won’t delete the file from iPod when you next sync.

You can also manually sync. instead and and uncheck every file in the iPod, but if you did this and ever re-installed iTunes or updated it etc. it will default back to automatic sync. and the first time you connect your iPod it might delete the lot. It may not, but I don’t know about you but I’ve just spent nearly every waking hour over the last few weeks transferring CD’s to my iPod and I don’t want to risk having to do that again!

Wishing for a play queue for iPod

Damn… I don’t normally post on stuff like this, but I had to get my opinion out this time:  jzero has it figured out.

All of you complaining about a lack of “Play Queue” on the iPod have no right to call yourself “Apple loyalists.”

Apple has created a fantastic product: they’ve made it as easy to use as possible for those that don’t quite understand technology; they’ve updated their firmware as often as possible keeping in mind YOUR suggestions; AND, they sit still while you keep complaining and ripping on them, even though they can’t do anything to fix your problem.

jPod: your example is flawed.  Does my 12” iBook keyboard light up when the room darkens?  I don’t think so.  Am I able to burn DVDs, or communicate with my cell phone via Bluetooth (without the dLink USB transmitter)?  Think again.  I really badly want a new PowerBook, but I bought my computer when that technology was NOT readily available.  Now it is.  Hm… I might as well go and COMPLAIN about it.

Why don’t you all sell your iPod on one of the many wonderful online auction sites out there (try [url=][/url]  I’m sure that someone out there is willing to buy an iPod without a play queue for at least half the price of a new one.  Put that money towards buying another, and less than a week later, you have your paramount play queue. (And hey, now your On-The-Go playlist saves straight to iTunes on Mac and Windows!)

And please don’t complain to me about the price: as a fifteen-year-old who worked all summer and all winter break to buy a 30GB iPod, I don’t want to hear it.  Plus, Apple is rumored to be coming out with brand new cheaper, smaller iPods in just a couple of days… hell, you just might have money left over if you take the eBay route.

Good luck… next time, show some more respect to Apple, please.

How to import CD tracks to iTunes

Oh yeah, little addition to the previous post, the reason I want to rip cds with iTunes so badly is because I’ve been using winamp, and it only does 112kbit ripping.  iTunes can do higher quality, and it’s soooooo stinkin easy to use….alright….thanks…........

How to import CD tracks to iTunes

Yeah, so here’s a couple question for the iTunes for windows users.  Love my new 20gb ipod, thing rocks, but when I put cds into my comp, itunes doesn’t recognize the cd at all.  I’ve been considering reinstalling itunes, but I have 3500+ songs loaded into it, and since adding them, I’ve modified much of their information (track name/album/artist/etc.)  Will exporting the list of songs be sufficient to save my current settings for a fresh install and then importing that list?  Thanks…....

How to import CD tracks to iTunes

So there is no way to download right onto the iPOD. I have a really old computer (only 4GB h-drive) and no more room for CD’s. Received 20GB iPOD for Christmas and was excited at the prospect of being able to carry every CD I own on it. From what I’m reading, that doesnt seem possible. Which really really sucks. Already had to purchase Windows XP (originally running 98) as well as a bunch of other crap to make this work, and now I don’t want to have to buy more h-drive space or a whole new computer. PLEASE HELP!!! This is becoming really expensive and is bumming my girlfriend out since her generous gift is not turning out as she had hoped.

How to create playlists in iTunes

This is a really simple question with hopefully a really simple solution.

How can I get my iPod playlist to be in alphabetical order by song title?  I have it sorted that way in iTunes but it doesn’t seem to want to update the list order in iPod when I synchronize.

Can anyone help, please?

Thanks and happy new year!

How to import CD tracks to iTunes

Hi, I have a few questions bout the advanced options in the mp3 encoding options menu. I choose the custom option and go for 320kbps. There are 4 options there - sample rate, stereo mode, smart encoding adjustments and filter freqs below 10hz. Normally i leave the settings as auto, joint stero and the other 2 options checked. But im not sure how this affects the quality of the ripped files. Could you please advise regarging how changing these otions would affect my output file ? Many thanks

How to import CD tracks to iTunes

simon lay, your question seems a little vague but i will give it a go. i think what you are trying to achive is impossible with itunes as all itunes really does is sync the ipod with the library and you may want to switch application if your using windows. consider choosing a program which allows you to manually transfer your songs which will alow you total control over your ipod unfortunately the compromise is ease of use. sorry i couldt be of more help. if you discover a better way of doing it please tell me!

How to import CD tracks to iTunes

stephen w… go into itunes and make sure can see all your songs. click edit > then select all. then right click on 1 of your songs in the library (they shud all be blue) then click clear. be sure only to clear it from the lirary and NOT from the harddisk. (it will ask u wat to do.) itunes shud be almost reset (just clear up any playlists etc.) as for the ipod just restore it using the ipod update v2.1 which is avalible at they shud both b bak to almost default settings. (i have not actually tried this solution as i have not wanted to clear itunes and ipod but i am sure it will work. feedback appreciated)

How to import CD tracks to iTunes

Is there anyway of starting from scratch with the IPOD and ITUNEs ?
I have removed ITUNE several times and re-installed it but it still defaults to a library that was created when I first installed the product.
Similarly wit the IPOD - is there a way of clearing everything and starting again ?

How to import CD tracks to iTunes

I have a 40GB iPod but I can’t spare 40GB on my Hard Disk. Also, I want to use my iPod with both my desktop and laptop PC’s.

So I want to stop iPod from deleting tracks that aren’t on my Hard Disk but would like to retain the ease of automatic updating. Any ideas how I can achieve this?
