3 Important Tips for iTunes on Windows for the non-MAC users There are times...


3 Important Tips for iTunes on Windows for the non-MAC users
There are times that software would bug down or get messed up. We do not have total control over them. Either software gets infected or damaged by a virus or even for an unknown reason its files just get messed up. Same is true for iTunes.
There are times that we experience doing an upgrade for iTunes and then all of the sudden it stops, crashes or this nasty little error window would pop-up. There are even times that we had to reinstall iTunes and, upon doing so, discover that we have lost our valuable music. This guide is the answer to all that problems.
Tip#1: Make sure that you know where all your data is being saved. For the iTunes Media Folder, the location is in your My Documents Folder ("My Documents\My Music\iTunes" to be exact). And that is the default location unless you changed it manually. Now, why do we need to know this. Simple. If things get messed up, this is where all your precious music are located. This is the folder you need to backup.
Tip#2: How do you make sure that all your music, downloaded or imported, is in that iTunes folder? What you need is to setup your iTunes to copy everything there. The reason why you need to do this is that everything will be organized. You would not have your music files all over the place or in different and random location, which would just give you headaches later on. You would then not need to search all your folders for your music files. Also, this prevents you from having problems during iTunes reinstallation where in most cases a lot of people would suddenly discover that some or a lot of their music is missing right after that process. So, how do you do this? On your iTunes menu at the top, click Edit. Then click Preferences. Click the advanced tab. Here you will notice that you have the location of your iTunes Media Folder. Right below that make sure you have a check on "Keep iTunes Media Folder Organized" and "Copy files to iTunes Media Folder when adding to library." The last item is the important one. This makes sure that all your data is copied to that folder. This item is by default not checked. So, make sure that there is a check mark on it.
Tip #3: What happens if the inevitable happens? If I could not update iTunes or if iTunes gets messed up? What do I do? As long as you have followed Tips #1 and 2, you are safe from the hassle of searching, downloading and importing all your data again. First, go into your iTunes Media Folder and copy all your data to a separate folder. This is your backup. Now, it is safe to uninstall iTunes. After you have uninstalled and reinstalled iTunes make sure that you follow Tip#2 again. Then after that just import them all back using iTunes' import functionality under the File Menu.
Now that you have these 3 steps you are all set and confident that, whatever happens to your iTunes, you will be able to recover all your data.

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.

I want to down load music from windows media player to my ipod but don,t no how to


Hi darin68...
Windows media player will not download music to your ipod...you will have to download and install Itunes to download music to your Ipod.
Windows media player uses WMA files, and Apple Ipod uses ACC files...
You will need to change your songs from WMA to ACC files using this free file converter located on the following webpage.
After you convert your songs and download them to I tunes then plug in your Apple Ipod and Itunes will open and will also recognize your Ipod.

Hi, How to Download Music to the Philips GoGear

The Philips GoGear Micro Jukebox is a portable MP3 player that plays MP3 files and WMA files and also displays photos. Download music, copy it to the GoGear player and enjoy your tunes everywhere you go.

Things You'll Need:

* Philips GoGear and USB cable
* Internet connection
* Online music download service
* Secure method of making online payments
* Windows Media Player software


Download music in MP3 or WMA formats. You can buy songs from many online sources. If you choose to buy from iTunes, be aware that you will need to convert them from the native iTunes format to MP3 files. The iTunes software will do this for you.

Import the songs to your Windows Media Player Library if they are not already there. Windows Media Player can be set to check for new files in certain folders each time it launches, so this might happen automatically.
.
Connect the Philips GoGear device to your computer with the USB cable and click on the "Sync" tab in Windows Media Player. Drag songs you want to copy to the "Sync list" on the right-hand side of the Windows Media Player window.

Click on the "Start Sync" button at the bottom of the list pane when you have all of the songs on the list. You should be able to check at the top of the list pane to see how much space is available on your MP3 player in order to make sure you have enough room.

Wait while the files transfer and then disconnect the player from your computer. You may have to click on "Safely Remove Hardware" in your system tray (usually on the bottom right corner of the screen) depending on your computer.

Have a nice day..

I cant put music on my ipod touch with windows media player


You cannot use the iPod touch with Windows Media Player, you can only use the iPod touch with iTunes. You need to download iTunes and when you install iTunes make sure it is set to automatically search your computer for music. iTunes will find all of your Windows Media Player songs, convert them for use on the iPod and then you can synchronize your iPod with the iTunes software.

How do I download my Itunes onto the sansafuze?


First of all iTunes does not support any product that is not made by Apple, so you won't be able to sync your Sansa with iTunes. But there is another way, first you need to find out if the music in your iTunes library is the format, do this by right clicking several songs and clicking either "Properties" or "Get Info" or something like that. A window will pop up, look under "Kind," if it doesn't say MPEG audio file or MP3 then it needs to be converted to MP3 format. Now in iTunes(if your running windows) choose "File" and select "Preferences," now click "Import Settings" c64a1ba.png and under "Import to" select "MP3 Encoder." 41565a6.pngNow go to music and in the upper right corner of the iTunes window next to search, select the "List" view or click "View" and select "As List." 00e23ba.pngNow highlight all your songs by clicking the top song, holding shift down and hold down the page down arrow until all the songs are highlighted, now right click over the highlighted songs and click "Create MP3 Version" a59eab9.png

Now you just need to move all the songs to Windows Media Player or to any other Media Player that will work with your Player. Once this is done, plug your Sansa into your computer and open up your Media PLayer and sync it!I hope this helps!

Im not sure how to have it work on Window's, but if you have music in Windows Media Player you want on your iPod, you can import them into iTunes. Go to File, then click import. Search for your folder that says My Music (mine is under my documents) and then find the music you want. If it is already in Windows Media Player, it should be in that folder. Just click on the song you want and click open. It will convert it from a WMA to an AAC file.
