I want to create a video with music but i dont know how to download music in my computer.please help me to download songs in my computer ,,,thanks,


You can buy the songs on iTunes, the music bought and downloaded on iTunes should be in your "Music" folder under iTunes library. Or you can buy your music elsewhere, download and save it to your "My Music" Folder.

USE TWO DIFFERENT IPODS AND LIBRARIES IN ONE COMPUTER


Let's say you have one computer and two iPods. It's easy enough to synchronize both iPods with just one computer, as long as both iPod users are happy accessing the same music library or the same set of playlists. But that can get hard to manage, especially if you're manually updating the iPod or adding new music that you'd like to keep separate.

In most cases, the easiest way to keep discrete libraries for syncing both iPods is to create a separate user account for each person who uses an iPod with the computer. The Insider Secrets video shows the steps for doing this using Mac OS X; here's how to create a separate user and share music under Windows XP.

First, click Start > Control Panel > User Accounts (Start > Settings > Control Panel if you use the Classic view). Click "Create a new account," and follow the instructions.

Windows XP kindly provides a shared folder that already includes a directory called Shared Music (find it under C:Documents and SettingsAll UsersDocuments). The easiest thing to do is to copy all the music on your computer into this folder so that all users can access it. Then the lucky owner of the new iPod can pick and choose what music to include in his or her iTunes Library. From the new account, in iTunes, click File > Add Folder To Library, and copy over whatever music you want (make sure to check the box next to "Copy files to iTunes music folder" when adding to library, under Advanced in the Preferences dialog box, so that iTunes doesn't consolidate the files for the music library).

Now both users can share all or part of the same library, add new music whenever necessary, and automatically update their iPods without the hassle of manually sifting through a large shared library.

I have downloaded I tunes & its telling me that I tunes is locked


Sounds like your permissions are a bit messed up. Try this:

In the Finder, use the Go menu and choose Utilities. Look for Disk Utility and open it up. Click on your hard drive on the left and click the Repair Permissions button on the right. After it completes, restart your computer and try opening iTunes again.

Make a back up of your music on an external Hard Drive or Flash Drive


Copy iTunes folder to your external hard drive
To copy all the items in your iTunes library (including the iTunes Library file that holds all your playlists, playcounts, ratings, and other data) to your external hard drive, follow these steps:

Quit iTunes.
Locate your external hard drive.
Mac: On the desktop or Finder sidebar.
Windows: In My Computer
Locate your iTunes folder:
By default, the iTunes folder is located in:
Mac OS X: /Users/username/Music
Windows XP: \Documents and Settings\username\My Documents\My Music\
Windows Vista or Windows 7: \Users\username\My Music\
If the iTunes folder is not in the default location listed above then you can find where the iTunes folder is located by following these instructions:

Open your iTunes Preferences:
Mac: Choose iTunes > Preferences.
Windows: Choose Edit > Preferences.
Click Advanced.
The location of your iTunes folder will be listed in iTunes Media folder location box, as pictured below.


Drag the iTunes folder to your external hard drive. This can take a while if you have a lot of items.


When the transfer is complete, your iTunes Library will have been successfully copied to your external hard drive.

ITunes 9 and the "iTunes Media" folder


Before iTunes 9, there used to be a "iTunes Music" folder that contained all of your music, apps & videos. With the newest version of iTunes, this folder has been changed to "iTunes Media" on new installations. This new folder structure makes much more sense than before, because iTunes is definitely much more than just music now.

However, if you already had iTunes installed before and simply upgraded to the latest version, iTunes will not automatically change the folder structure for you (I guess as to not move an existing user's files around without telling them). You'd have to take a few steps to keep yourself updated.

First, open iTunes, then go to "File > Library > Organize Library". You will be prompted if you want to change to the new iTunes folder structure. However, this will not change your top level folder, "iTunes Music". To do that, leave iTunes running, and simply go to your iTunes Music folder and rename it iTunes Media.

Most of the time this will work fine, because iTunes will detect that there's been a folder change and work accordingly. In case that iTunes didn't catch the folder change, go to "Options > Advanced" and change the location of the iTunes Media library folder manually.

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.
