The Sansa Shaker is not compatible with iTunes. You will have to use another music service, like Limewire or Rhapsody.

ITunes stopped working.


Search for a folder called iTunes Library - if you find it, click directly on the file inside this folder called iTunes Library.
If you find more than one, select the one you prefer and later you should be able to delete the others ..
If you open iTunes by clicking on the library, instead of just opening iTunes, it should set the library for you in the iTunes Preferences and it "should" stay that way ... just to be sure, close iTunes and then reopen the normal way, just by clicking on the program ... see what happens ...
Be careful not to delete any "extra" libraries that contain music that is not in the library you select - ideally you should have only one library with all the music, videos, etc, in it ...
If this doesn't work, go to Preferences in iTunes and look at the "advanced" tab - look at what it says for iTunes media folder location - make sure this is where your library is ...
This process can be a bit complicated, particularly if you have more than one library, so it's important to find the one library you want to keep, make sure all the music and other things are in it (copy everything in if you have to) and delete any additional libraries ...
Let us know what happens, how it works out. If you have more questions come back!
Once you get it set correctly, don't move your iTunes library if you don't have to, because it is a little confusing to get iTunes to show all your music correctly again ... if you have to, search on Google for "how to move iTunes Library" for help before you do it!

The iTunes Library file is locked, on a locked disk, or you do not have write permission for this file.


1. Open Finder. Goto Music > iTunes > and locate the following files.

iTunes Music Library.xml
iTunes Library.itl

2. For each file:

Right click on each file.
Click on Get Info
Under the Sharing & Permissions Tab: Make all the Privileges 'Read & Write'.
Close the Get Info box

Open iTunes again.
This worked for me on Snow Leopard.

How to use one then one iPod with one computer


Method One
If you share your computer with other people, you can maintain separate user accounts for each person who uses the computer. This is useful especially if each user has different tastes in music; users can maintain separate, personalized iTunes music libraries and can customize their iPods accordingly.

Mac OS X users:
Learn how to set up additional user accounts.

Windows users:
Look in your computer's Help documentation to learn how to set up additional user accounts. To locate this information:

Click the Start Menu, and then click Help or Help and Support.
Enter "new user" in the Search field.
Press Return.
If you create multiple user accounts on one computer but want the same music to be available in iTunes for all users, see iTunes: How to share music between different accounts on a single computer.




Method Two

You may use multiple iPods on a computer without the need to create multiple user accounts. To do this, you can set iTunes to update each iPod with only certain playlists. This method allows you to put all your music on, say, your iPod and keep your iPod shuffle updated with only your workout music. Here's how to do this with iTunes 9:

Create new iTunes playlists that contain all the music that you want to sync to each iPod.
Learn how to Sync your iPod (read the iPod Tutorial Steps section below the video).
Note: iTunes for Windows does not support syncing multiple iPod devices at the same time.



Method Three

Create a separate iTunes library for each iPod. Note: It is important that you make a new iTunes Library file. Do not just make a copy of your existing iTunes Library file. If iTunes is open, quit it.

Mac users: Hold down the Option key while you open iTunes.
Windows users: Hold down the Shift key while you open iTunes.
In the dialog that appears, click Create Library.
Name and save the alternate library file. iTunes opens with your brand new library file.
Open iTunes Preferences. Choose iTunes > Preferences (Mac) or Edit > Preferences (Windows).
Click the Advanced tab.
Deselect the "Copy files to iTunes Media folder when adding to library" checkbox if it is already selected and click OK. This will prevent iTunes from creating duplicates of your existing media files in the new library folder.

Add the specific media files you want on your iPod to iTunes either by dragging them into iTunes or choosing File > Add to Library (Mac) or File > Add File to Library or Add Folder to Library (Windows).

Once you have the iTunes Library just how you want it, connect and sync your iPod.

Once the sync is complete, quit iTunes.
Mac users: Hold down the Option key while you open iTunes.
Windows users: Hold down the Shift key while you open iTunes.
Click Choose library.
Choose your original iTunes Library and click Choose (Mac Users) or Open (Windows Users). You can now switch back and forth between the different libraries for different iPods.

How to transfer windows media player muisc to iTunes


You may have some music on Windows Media Player, and you want to add them into iTunes library for your new iPod or iPhone. Or you may want to move your iTunes bought music to Windows Media Player for portable devices such as Zen, Zune, Phone, Sansa, Archos, MP3/MP4 Player, etc. It’s easy to do that. And this guide will show the steps to do the job.

Part1. Transfer Windows Media Player music to iTunes

Step1. Open iTunes and select the File -- Add Folder to Library menu.

Step2. Browse to your Windows Media Player music folder. iTunes will ask you where your songs are located, which by default will be in your My Music folder on Windows XP, or in your Music folder on Vista.

Step3. Convert Windows Media Player songs to AAC format (.m4a). If you have files in WMA format, you will be prompted to convert those WMA files to AAC. This is a necessary step if you want those tracks available to play on your iPod or iPhone. If you have a large music library in WMA format, converting WMA to AAC may take a long time. Plan to do this at a time when you can leave your computer on and walk away to do something else for awhile. You can also import your WMA files as MP3 instead, which also allows them to work with your iPod, but makes them more portable if you buy something else in the future.

iTunes doesn't modify your original music files from Windows Media Player. It leaves those songs in their original location and makes copies in your iTunes music folder.


Part2. Transfer iTunes music to Windows Media Player

Because iTunes music has DRM protection, you can't easily import the music into Windows Media Player by drag and drop. There are two ways to transfer protected music from iTunes to Windows Media Player.

Method1. You can use iTunes to burn the music to a blank CD at first, then use Windows Media Player to rip the music CD, the DRM protection will be remove during the ripping process, then you can rip the CD into WMP library. This way is good for tranferring a few music. For large mount of music, it would take a really long time to transfer music.

Method2. If you don't have blank CD disk or you have many iTunes music need to transferred to windows media player. You can use DRM Media Converter. It can legally convert the protected iTunes music to non-protected MP3 music, then you can easily drag and drop the MP3 music into Windows Media Player.

Step1. Download and install the DRM Media Converter , the file size is about 7 MB. I have scaned it with Norton Virus protector and AVG spayware protector, it's safe without any warning.

Step2. Run the DRM Media Converter, Click Add to import iTunes music, which by default will be in My Music\iTunes\iTunes Music .Or you can run iTunes, click Edit -- Advanced Tab, there you will see where your iTunes media folder location.

Step3. Set the output audio format as "MP3 - MPEG Layer-3 Audio (*.mp3)"

Step4. Click Start to run the conversion, it will take a little bit time to finish the job, then click Browse to located your converted mp3 files, drag them into Windows Media Player, done.
