How to import CD tracks to iTunes

Nick—I think that’s my problem as well.  iTunes does not support *.wma.  A different thread suggested for software options to convert *.wma to *.mp3.  You could also simply re-rip into iTunes.  Finally, if you don’t have the source material, you can burn from *.wma to CD and then rip back from the CD into iTunes.  None of which are easy answers.

How to create playlists in iTunes

@brucepiv : Your problem is, that iTunes rips music by default as AAC (m4a) format. This format is understood by the new iPods. For the 1G and 2G iPods you have to update the iPod software to V1.3. Another (but not so preferable) method, is to change in iTunes to .mp3.

Hope that helps

How to import CD tracks to iTunes

I am using iTunes 4.2. I am getting very slow CD importing speed (maximum of 4X). A single CD import takes more then 15 minutes. I am encoding MP3 format.

On the same machine MusicMatch can rip CD in 5 minutes. 

Am i missing something.

How to import CD tracks to iTunes

Hi, does anyone know if it is possible to transfer .wma files from the hard drive to itunes. I have a large collection which I imported via Windows Media Player. Do I have to import my whole libray again onto itunes?

Wishing for a play queue for iPod

Thank you, MLWings.  I believe that I understand your side of the issue more clearly now.

It seemed to me that some people thought their iPod was a terrible piece of machinery, just because it didn’t have a play queue.  Although it was a huge mistake of Apple not to implement this feature, i intended to point out that they put a lot of work into an otherwise awesome MP3 player/calendar/addressbook/gameboy/notepad/etc.  Sorry if I got carried away (which I most certainly did.)

I still would be interested in finding out if Apple really can implement On-The-Go playlists in the older iPods.  I don’t know if it is very fair of us to be complaining if there is in fact a piece of hardware that limits the capability (it doesn’t make sense to me, either, but…)  I would think that Apple would think twice about abandoning their older iPod userbase, as it is currently their flagship product.  If the hardware doesn’t pose a problem, then I say that Apple Quality Assurance most certainly has one.

Craig, I do agree that Apple seems to be forgetting about those of us that own their older products.  Personally, I think that the $129 upgrade price for EVERY new version of Mac OS X is disappointing.  But that is besides the point.  And thank you for the lemming reference: it reminded me of the failed “1985” commercial, and the revision to the “1984” commercial today was particularly coincidental.

It was simply my intent to point out that it seems some posters are getting too worked up about the lack of play queue feature.  I know it is a nice feature, but the iPod so worthless without it?

How to create playlists in iTunes

Hello IPOD/Itunes users…..

Where in the computer are Itunes’ playlists saved? 

And can you specify where you’d like the playlists to be saved?

Thank you.

How to create playlists in iTunes

While I love how Itunes (Windows) works with my new IPod, I’m having some issues with using it with my old/“scroll wheel only” Ipod.  Specifically, songs that I imported to my library via Itunes by dragging from CD can not be moved into my old Ipod (but can be moved into my new one).

Any suggestions on how to resolve this problem would be greatly appreciated.

How to create playlists in iTunes

I’m new to iTunes. Found a problem when copying songs (from CD 2 itunes) that merge into each other. Solution:
Before copying highlite the songs and under “Advanced” select “Join CD Tracks”.
You can re-label the song to reflect this action e.i. “Shoo Be Doo/Candy-O”

How to import CD tracks to iTunes

I think someone has already asked this but I’m not sure if it got answered.  I’m soon to be the proud owner of a little white bundle of joy and was wanting to know if there is another way of putting music on to your ipod rather than ripping it onto your computer.  I’ve got a pretty big music selection, and unfortunately I’m not in the position to be able to keep 20 gigs worth of ripped music on my hard drive.  Any suggestions?

You’re an SA too. The fact you need to brag about this is, well, actually I don’t know why you need to brag about it.

It adds no weight to your argument. I was just pointing out that if we’re going to use our networks as a benchmark of our credibility, mine is probably more than 20 times the size of yours.

But we’re not doing that, are we? that would be retarded.

I’m sure you’d be much better off on slashdot or something. I’m sure those geeks would be much more impressed by your mighty trading room system.

Anyway, gotta jump. Sometimes when you’re supporting 9000 users you have to go and interact with people.

Trevor, I think you’re confusing the word “loyalist” with “lemming”. Apple exists to serve us, not the other way around.

How to import CD tracks to iTunes

Also, an easy way to import multiple CDs into iTunes is to go to Edit -> Preferences and check the Import and Eject option under Do This When CD is Inserted.  Creates a great assembly line—when 1 pops out, put another in and it imports it.  REMINDER - change the setting once you’re done b/c you probably don’t want this to be a permanent setting.

How to import CD tracks to iTunes

My problem is that I have previously ripped CDs and songs purchased from that I can’t seem to get into the Library.  They are all in the folder structure under iTunes, but not in the Library.  When I try to Add File to Library or Add Folder to Library, nothing happens.  When I try to Import, there are only 3 suffixes to choose from (*.txt and 2 others).  When I purchase stuff from iTunes, it gets into the Library and when I now import from CDs, they’re fine.  Help?

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

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.

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!
