How to import CD tracks to iTunes

CD Rip protection? How does iPod handle that? There are a number of new CD’s out, the Dare Devil Soundtrack I know off hand, that has a special CD Rip Protection code on it that prevents successful “ripping”. It’s been one of my biggest pet peeves about this sound track. (Think of it as a VHS movie fading in and out on playback of a copy).

Will iPod successfully rip this CD into MP3 or even AAC format correctly with out the distortion in the songs (fading, beeping or ‘scratch’ sound).

How to import CD tracks to iTunes

hi. . HELP! i’m not sure if what i’m about to ask has already been posted, but there are just too many comments for me to read. anyways, i’m having a hard time with my iTunes because since most of my cd’s are writable, iTunes doesn’t recognize it, so i have to tag each and every one of the songs. but the hard part is looking for the album title. does iTunes have a program or something which will recognize the song and artist then will provide the album where the song is from? i tried the search engine but it usually ends with a “none” or “no search is found”, i wrote finger 11 and they didn’t have finger 11. i’m looking for something like the “look up tags” from musicmatch, or whenever you play a song in realone player, the album where it’s form is shown. i hope someone out there understands me. thank you.

How to import CD tracks to iTunes

Hi - New to ipod and itunes and I’m having the same problem EnderWiggin is having. I put the CD in, try to get track names… but nuthin. And the times are all screwed up too. I have a cable internet hookup that on all the time so it should be connecting to the CDDB no problem. I’ve tried re-installing itunes with the same result.

Any ideas? Thanks.

I really want ot love this great gift my wife gave me but so far just frustration…

You can set it up either way.  Come to the forums, and we’ll help you to set it up the way you’d prefer it to be.

Iain…I don’t see where you are getting the rudeness from, but ok

Bernell Dorrough your little bit on supply and demand are a bit off. That is not how supply and demand works. Sorry. If more people want Apple products the price will go up unless supply goes up with demand. It’s confusing, but what you said made little economic sense. So i guess it’s not a simple principle after all.

How to import CD tracks to iTunes

Maybe a very silly question, but is each song “stored” on both the i-pod and the PC or just on the i-pod?

How to import CD tracks to iTunes

Yay! I didn’t realize that you could crank the bitrate so high. I figured that 128 kbps was the max for my CDs when ripping. I’d always used WMP for ripping, and converted later, but my new 320 kbps mp3s are audio bliss. mmmm…...

How to create playlists in iTunes

To brucepiv: If u’re not using the “Latest” of Apple upgrades on software, run and download ‘em now. I had similar problem. Upgraded my ipod now everything works as advertised. I was also told to delete any software u may have loaded out of box. U only need the latest version of itunes and your ipod period.

Steve: That CD might just not be in the Gracenote CDDB. You can search for it to confirm by using this link:

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 [url=http://www.wma-mp3.com]http://www.wma-mp3.com[/url] 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

Hi,
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”
