You can use iTunes to create your own personal digital music library and easily organize and listen to your collection of digital music files. You can also create your own custom audio CDs and transfer your music to an Apple iPod portable digital music player. If you are installing iTunes for use with an iPod, after installing iTunes, use the cable that came with your iPod to connect your iPod to your computer.

What’s new in this version:

iTunes 4.6 includes support for playing your music wirelessly using AirPort Express with AirTunes.  It also includes a number of other minor enhancements.

License: Freeware
System Requirements: Mac OS X v10.1.5 or later,
Mac OS X v10.3 required for AirPort Express OR Windows XP or 2000

Thats okay because I dont plan on buying any more songs from iTunes after this although Ive purchased over 240 to date. Im tired of this moving DRM target. There are legitimate reasons to unprotect iTunes songs and HYMN allowed that to happen w/o removing ownership tags; i.e., the reason for copy protection intact. But that wasnt good enough for Jobes, he wants more. So Ill go back to buying CDs on sale (still often cheaper than iTunes) or download from other services. In terms of iTunes and their continuing efforts to control what I do with music I legitimately purchase, Im looking at alternatives. Im also steering others away from iTunes and even suggesting iPod alternatives.

Everyone complaining about the Hymn files no playing:  There is a new version of Hymn which fixes this.  Also, there is a way to fix previously Hymn’ed files - See

Just Google for “hymn iTunes 4.6” and you’ll find lots of stuff.  There’s even a Mac script to fix all your files at once in OS X.

itunes gapless MP3 playing is not possible by setting the cross fad to ON and with zero time. It just does not work.

Gapless must be a MUST to solve in the new firmware of the iPOD. It makes no sense for opera lovers to suffer these continuous interruptions….

i agree with Walse wholeheartedly… but opera lovers aren’t the only people who need gapless playback. if you have encoded a seamlessly-mixed dance-oriented CD that has been separated into tracks for convenient CD navigation, iTunes can be fudged with crossfade, but iPod gaps them… the only workarounds are for people who have the attention, tools, and skill to stitch the tracks back into one long AIFF and then re-encoding. a task that is *so* the opposite of iLife as advertised.

*second*.  just think…kicking back, listening to Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon, where almost every track seguays into the next, and you hear that stupid hiccup! it’s heart rending.

after giving iTunes abother try with 4.6 I am going back to the media centre. iTunes was great out of the stall but has singularly failed to advance much the past year. It’s still bugyy and slow, and the lack of gapless and crossfading options really bugs me.
