Serato won't recognize my music files

I have tried numerous times: I drag the files to the *A and into a Crate followed by IMPORT, but the system won't acknowledge the music files. I'm not sure why this is happening and have become very frustrated. I also went into my iTunes and changed the encoding to support Serato and again, the system would not recognize my files either out of iTunes or even off of my recorded CD files. I have a 2G system with Vista. What do you suggest?

    Just to explain on Mids advice, he is referring to the iTunes DRM protected MP4 music files that are often sold on the iTunes store. All these files can only be played in iTunes or iPod authorized with the Apple Account you have set to iTunes. Certain CDs have this feature as well when you import them into iTunes and you won't be able to play them with anything but iTunes.

    There are not many easy ways to remove the DRM, and legally the process is questionable. When you buy digital music make sure there they're not protected with any DRM features. Beatport, mp3 and others tend to avoid the DRM nonsense since it makes many people unhappy.

    Good luck.

Use a program called NoteBurner to emulate a CD burner, it'll take the iTunes songs and convert them to .MP3 burner so that you can use them with Serato without wasting a bunch of CDs.

Your using itunes and trying to export your library that is the problem it has metatag encoding which at this time is not supported by serato and says it all over there sites forum. There are ways to do it but none of which i know that are legal or condone. Your best bet is to not use itunes as many djs acknowlodge that since you cant use itunes to dj with, even in your bedroom as stated in there terms of service that it is not worth using itunes. I use other types of music collections on like such as mp3.com and rhapsody or dancerecords.com to download all my music to dj with.

The computer recognize my sansa clip+ device, i add my music directly to the sansa music folder, following the guide instructions and after all i can't find my music on my device after disconnetcting it...


Greetings Greif - Is it possible that your music files are missing the necessary file extensions at the end of the file names, for example song1.mp3 or song2.wma, as needed by the player?

It's also possible that the file system on the Sansa is damaged and might need to be reformatted (after you've moved the important files back to the computer).

Regards and Thanks for using Fix Ya.

Distorted sound, Low signal, unable to use deck with serato.


Hi there,
I just want to clarify the way you have your gear set up.,
Normally this is enough to annoy anyone.

Having set all the equipment up,this is what I would do.....

Try without Serato

Firstly I would set the records & platters and then the counterweights,
Then I would do an audible check.Headphones,Monitors and then front of house system
If this passes I will then set the room levels for comfort and then the eq band gets a tune up for the room,

If this set up procedure works then connect Serato,
If problems persists then Uninstall Serato and Reinstall.

Try Again if all else fails ......

www.serato.com they have a contact us,report the problem.

Hope this helps ,If you need more help please let me know,Misterdj

Can not hook up my ipod


You need to download iTunes and create a library. Once you have iTunes installed...follow these steps.

  1. Add music to your hard drive by inserting CD's into your computer. When you put in a CD it may ask you to import the music into your library, or you may have to click the button on the lower right that says import music. iTunes generally finds the song titles and CD name by itself, but if the CD is obscure or a local band you may have to type it yourself.
  2. iTunes will automatically add the music you took from the CD to your library.
  3. You can also add music you may already have on your computer by going to File> Add file to library or File> Add folder to library. Once you have added all of the music you want to put on the shuffle, go to step 4.
  4. You can now plug in your iPod. iTunes should recognize the iPod pretty quickly. You will see it under a tab on the left called devices. Once it finds the iPod, you should be able to select music from your library and drag it directly to the Shuffle.
  5. You can click on the iPod's icon in the left side column and do several different things. But mainly I would just use it to see how much space you have left for your music.
It's as easy as that! Comment on this post if you need more help.
