Adding my podcast to iTunes

Is there a process for getting Apple to add a podcast I've created to iTunes? I'm working with someone who has some national recognition as a motivational speaker and we'd like to expand his message to a broader audience.

You can use software to create an iTunes compatible podcast. The software will automatically encode the podcast feed for you. I would suggest FeedForAll, there is a free download at http://www.feedforall.com (there is both a Windows and a Mac version).

There is a tutorial that will walk you through setting up an iTunes compatible podcast - http://www.feedforall.com/itunes-tutorials.htm

Goodluck!

How to Create a Playlist in iTunes


For many of us, using an iPod with iTunes is simple and second nature, but for a beginner, iTunes can be a confusing place. For this reason, I have created this how-to of how to create a playlist in iTunes. <br /> Playlists are easy and fun. They allow us to have a good mix of songs to work out with, do household chores with, or just hang out with. Here is how to create a playlist in iTunes. <ol> <li>First, you must open iTunes</li> <li>Once opened, click "File" &gt; "New Playlist". For those of you who prefer to use command keys, you can press Ctrl+N, and it will do the same thing.</li> <li>You will be taken to a screen with no songs listed on it. This is your new playlist. It is titled "untitled playlist," and the title is highlighted. To change the title, simple type the desired title and then click anywhere else. If the title is no longer highlighted because you clicked elsewhere, simply click the title twice (slowly), and it will once again become highlighted.</li> <li>After the playlist is titled, you are ready to begin adding songs. To do this, simply go to your music collection by clicking "Music" on the left column and selecting the song you want from your collection. Once the desired song is selected, simply drag it on top of the playlist title. This will add the song to the playlist.</li> <li>Once multiple songs have been added, you can drag a song up or down in the list to change the song order.</li> <li>After all of the desired songs are in the playlist, simply connect your iPod and sync it with iTunes. Your playlist is now ready to be listened to.</li></ol>

Most of my itune shows are frozen only a few play fine.I deleted quicktime and itunes then reinstalled and nothing changed!!Please help


It could be that you have too many programs running, even ifyou don't know they're running.
If you're goingto update your iPod,close all other programs except your iTunes, and then right click on the toolbar at thebottom of your desktop and click task manager. Go to the processes tab and thenclick the user name tab at the top of the list. Anything that says owner exceptexplorer, task manger, and iTunes can be closed. That might help it to work alittle faster and not freeze for so long. Also, make sure you have the most upto date version of iTunes.

ITunes takes forever to load on my Windows 7 PC (e.g. 10 minutes) - what can be done to fix this?


Resolution Create a New User Account When troubleshooting a variety of issues, it can be useful to determine if the issue affects a specific Windows user account or all accounts. Follow the steps below to create a new user account in Windows Vista or Windows 7:
  1. From the Start menu, choose Control Panel.
  2. Open Add or remove user accounts (If using the Classic View in Windows Vista, open User Accounts. Then open Manage another account).
  3. Select Create a new account and follow the instructions to complete the account setup process.
  4. Once the new account is created, choose Log Off from the Start menu.
  5. Log into the newly created user account.
  6. Open iTunes and determine whether the issue you were experiencing persists in this new user.
If you see the same issue in the newly created user account, proceed to the System-wide troubleshooting section below. If you do not experience the same issue, consult the User-specific troubleshooting section below.
User-specific troubleshooting If your issue only happens in one particular user account, some of the suggestions below may resolve the issue. Before proceeding however, you'll need to make hidden files and folder visible in Windows. Follow steps 1-5 in iTunes for Windows in Windows Vista doesn't open after upgrading.
  • Remove iTunes Plug-ins
    Third-party iTunes plug-ins can cause many issues, particularly if the plug-in has not been updated to be compatible with new versions of iTunes. iTunes plug-ins are stored in the following location:
    C:UsersusernameAppDataRoamingApple ComputeriTunesiTunes Plug-ins
  • Remove iTunes Preference files
    Some of the files that iTunes uses to store settings and preferences may be unusable and cause issues. iTunes has two folders where preferences are saved. Move one of them to the desktop and test to see if the issue persists. If it does, move it back and remove the second folder. The location for the two preference folders are:
    • C:UsersusernameAppDataLocalApple ComputeriTunes
    • C:UsersusernameAppDataRoamingApple ComputeriTunes
  • Create a new iTunes Library
    1. Hold the Shift key while opening iTunes. You will be prompted to Choose iTunes Library.
    2. Choose Create Library to create a new one. In the following window you will be prompted to select a location to save the new iTunes Library.
    3. Click Save. iTunes will open the newly created library. After closing iTunes, you can always select the original library by using the Shift key when opening iTunes.
  • Recreate your iTunes Library
    If you iTunes library has become unusable, rebuilding it as described in How to recreate your iTunes Library and Playlists may resolve the issue.
Check for content files with issues
Sometimes a certain audio file can cause iTunes to quit unexpectedly or stop responding when it is analyzing gapless playback information. To determine which file(s) may be cause the issue follow the steps below:
  1. Quit iTunes.
  2. Navigate to the iTunes folder:
    • Windows Vista - C:usersusernameMusiciTunes
    • Windows 7 - C:usersusernameMy MusiciTunes
  3. Move the iTunes Library.itl file to your desktop
  4. Open iTunes. You should not see any content in iTunes.
  5. From the File menu, choose Add Folder to Library.
  6. Navigate to the folder where your music is located. Typically this is
    • Windows Vista - C:usersusernameMusiciTunesiTunes Media
    • Windows 7 - C:usersusernameMy MusiciTunesiTunes Media
  7. Note: This folder may be called iTunes Music if it was created with iTunes 8 or earlier.

  8. Choose an artist, album, or single song to add the to the library
  9. Wait for iTunes to successfully add the songs to your library and perform the gapless playback scan.
  10. If successful, continue adding back more songs to your library.
  11. If there is an issue with one of your files, you will notice your issue reappear after you attempt to add it to the library. At this point you should repeat these steps being careful not to add the files that cause the issue to occur.
System-wide troubleshooting When troubleshooting system-wide issues with iTunes, there are a few different suggestion to try.
  • Check for viruses
    Windows viruses can interfere with a variety of computer functions including iTunes. Make sure that you have current anti-virus software installed with updated virus definitions and use it to scan your system.
  • Check for anti-virus and/or Internet security software
    Internet Security software itself can sometimes cause iTunes to quit unexpectedly. Try disabling the Internet Security software temporarily or exempting iTunes from any active scanning done by such software. If this resolves the issue, check with the maker of the software for an update to the software or its virus definitions. See the following article for more information: iTunes for Windows: Troubleshooting security software issues.
  • Conflicting processes

    My Ipod nano contains all my music. Unable to transfer to laptop


    Unfortunately iTunes doesn't let you transfer anything other than your iTunes store purchases from your iPod.

    Totransfer all your iPod content, all your music, playlists, videos,podcasts and photos to your new iTunes library you will need todownload software like TouchCopy.

    Here is how to use TouchCopy

    1. Download and Install TouchCopy. Downloads are free and are available for both PC and Mac.
    2. Start up TouchCopy by double-clicking the TouchCopy icon on your desktop
    3. Connect your iPod or iPhone to your computer. TouchCopymay start iTunes - don't worry, TouchCopy has fixed it so that iTuneswill not sync music or video with your iPod while TouchCopy is running.These changes are restored when you quit TouchCopy.
    4. Now select which songs you want to copy into iTunes, if you want toselect all your music, select "Music" from the list on the left andclick on "Copy to iTunes" button in the TouchCopy control bar. In a similar way, you can also use TouchCopy to copy your playlists, videos, podcasts, photos, contacts, calendars and notes.
    5. Whenyou are satisfied that all your iPod content is safely in iTunes, useiTunes to re-sync your iPod which will enable you to add new content toit.
