please don't associate chimby and myself.

obviously there are some users that fall into a category where they can;t eloquently define and explain why OSX is good. i choose not to be one, and defend my choice of OSX in real terms.

some really do believe the hype, no different from anti mac fanbois -___-

If you want CDs to feature text on your CDJ display choose Toast over iTunes & tick the button that says "Display text."

Not an inbuilt straight-from-the-box utility granted, but no different from using Nero or whatnot on PCs.

No point firing up your dusty PC for just burning CDs man, leave it where it is, and maybe do a few small pisses on it from time to time to show it who wears the trousers.

If I burn a CD off a playlist in itunes, the track text on my CDJs looks exactly the same as it does on itunes. Can't agree more with the statement below....

I get no probs. Pretty handy way to get music quickly. Using Mac Book Pro. Its a bit annoying not being able to transfer files to other programs but I just burn as audio and re import as MP3.

goddamn. thank you apple for being a HUGE FUCKING FAILURE and forcing users to encode their mp3s twice, thus losing precious sound quality. not like they care because shitty white earphones are shitty anyway.

^^ what do you mean you can't transfer to other programs?? Just drag and drop and it'll export the original file

Try not to reconvert anything to mp3 more than once as well they lose quality everytime you do

User fail imo drag and dropping will copy the original file out of iTunes exactly as you imported it (renamed to a sensible naming convention)

Nice timed bump as I was having some more iTune issues yesterday...downloaded some new music, and I can't get the files added to the Library...whether I go "Add Folder to Library" or "Add Files" and selected them all, nothing happens...files do not appear in iTunes...double clicking on other folders when Adding Folders works, imports and brings them in and closed the Add Folder window...but when I do the same on this other folder, it just sits there...doing nothing, not closing the window or nothing

Any clues?

not sure if I mentioned it, the problem turned out to be a faulty dvd drive that was only 2 months old if that. PIONEER one too.

GUYS!!!


I'm stuck again. I'm testing out some songs and burning them into mp3 format and I can't for the life of me figure out how to get them to stop burning into individual folders. I normally burn them as audio discs which work fine but that defeats the purpose of just a 'quick mix' at home. Any ideas?

friggin hell... Easiest way is probably to create a new folder on your desktop, drag and drop what you want out of it and burn that entire folder...

Whatever, it didn't work, tried it about 10 times dragging and dropping to different parts of the iTunes screen, the main library list, the "Music" section on the left, direct to the attrached iPod device...nothing happens

It works fine. It's not iTunes that's the problem. http://www.google.com.au/search?q=drag+drop+add+music+to+iTunes&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&hl=en&client=safari look how many results there are about it.

Are you sure the music's not already in the library? It won't duplicate it if it already is.

Bear with me, I will try and explain a different way.
You are going to have to get apple(ie. the FFA) to properly negotiate itunes(stadium) rights with the host computer(Australia/AFL)
