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.

Sony PS-LX250H Player arm won't set down to play


Have you made sure the "up/down" button is not depressed? It's the furthest button to the right of the player if you are looking at it head-on. If it is depressed, it will cause the needle to simply hover above the spinning record. A good thing if you want to "pause" your musical experience, but not much help if you are trying to enjoy some sonic sensations.

EZ Audio Converter does not export files to iTunes


I've had exactly the same problem, and so far no resolution from Ion. A small bit of good news: the .wav files are on the hard drive, although without any track info. At least on Vista, they are in username/AppData/Local/Temp. The files are name Temp0, Temp1, Temp 2, ...

You can use iTunes to add these files (File/add file) and then convert them to .mp3s, or whatever format you prefer. Or you could convert them first using the tool of your choice, such as Audiograbber.

This is inconvenient, but a lot better than re-ripping the vinyl after EZVinyl hangs.

Ambient sound is louder than the music


Hi,
I have a Mac (OS X 10.5.7) and had the same problem with the Ion TTUSB system picking up room noise. This seemed to fix it: 
In System Preference, under Hardware, choose "Sound".
Choose "Input".
Under "Choose a device for sound input" choose USB Audio CODEC  type: USB

I hope this helps,
Cheers!

Thorens TD 126 Mark III - Motor will not run with belt attached


Maybe next time you might turn it OFF before handling the belt.

Try this with power off - manually rotate the turntable and look for where drag might be. You should be able to feel the drag. It is possible you didn't route the belt properly.
