It sounds like the guy that put it in your ibook didn't do a good job. Might be loose and needs to be put in more securely.

The unit needs to be put in securely or when the disks spin, the whole unit will ****. That is where you can get your "skips".

How to Play iTunes Music on Windows Media Player

There's a good chance when you buy music from the iTunes Store that the files that you download will be copy protected by Apple's FairPlay DRM system. It's a great system that protects the rights of the artist and publisher by making it difficult for the consumer to distribute copyrighted material. However, DRM can also be very restrictive by stopping you playing legally purchased music on your MP3 compatible hardware. So, what happens if you want to play your DRM'ed music on a non-iPod?

This tutorial will show you a way to produce DRM-free music that doesn't require any special software that you would normally need to buy. All you'll need is the iTunes software, and a blank CD (preferably a rewritable (CD-RW)).

Before we begin, check for any updates that are available for your iTunes installation, or download the latest version from the iTunes website。


Configuring iTunes to burn and rip an audio CD

CD Burner Settings: In order to set up the iTunes software to burn an audio CD, you first need to go into the settings menu and select the correct disc format. To do this, click on the Edit tab on the main menu and select Preferences from the menu list. On the preferences screen, select the Advanced tab, followed by the Burning tab. First, make sure your CD burner is selected from the drop-down menu alongside the CD Burner option. Next, Select audio CD as the disc format that is to be written by your CD drive.

CD Import Settings: While you are still in the preferences menu, click on the Importing tab to access the CD ripping settings. Verify that the On CD Insert option is set to Ask to Import CD. Next, set the Import Using option to a format of your choice; the MP3 Encoder is your best choice if you want to import audio CDs as MP3 files that play on virtually all compatible devices. Choose an encoding bitrate from the Setting option; 128Kbps is the normal setting that is good enough for the average listener. And finally, make sure the Automatically Retrieve CD Track Names From Internet and Create File Names With Track Numbers and both checked. Click the OK button to save your settings.

Making a custom playlist

To be able to burn your DRM copy protected songs to audio CD you will need to make a custom playlist (File > New Playlist). You can add music tracks to a playlist easily by dragging and dropping them from your music library to your newly created playlist. For instructions on how to achieve this, why not follow our tutorial on How to Create a Custom Playlist Using iTunes.

While creating a playlist, make sure that the total playing time (displayed at the bottom of the screen) doesn't exceed the capacity of the CD-R or CD-RW you are using; typically, the total playing time of a 700Mb CD is 80 minutes.


Burning an Audio CD Using a Playlist

Once you have created a playlist, simply left-click it (located under the playlists section in the left pane), and then click on the File tab on the main menu, followed by Burn Playlist to Disc. The CD drive tray should now automatically eject so you can insert a blank disc; ideally use a rewriteable disc ( CD-RW) so you can reuse it multiple times. Before iTunes starts burning the DRM protected songs, it will remind you that creating an audio CD is for your own personal use only; once you have read this notice, click on the Proceed button to start burning.

Ripping an audio CD

The final step in this tutorial is to import (rip) the songs that you burned onto audio CD, back to digital music files. We have already configured iTunes (step 1) to encode any audio CD that is inserted into the CD drive as MP3 files and so this stage of the process will be mostly automatic. To start ripping your audio CD, simply insert it into your CD drive and click the Yes button to start. For a more in-depth look at this process, read the tutorial on How to Import CD Tracks Using iTunes.

Once this stage is complete, all the files that have been imported into your music library will be free from DRM; you will be able to transfer them to any device that supports MP3 playback.

Note:The only downside in using this method is that if you have a lot of files that you need to convert, then it ends up a slow and tedious process. With this in mind, use a legal drm removal tool if you have a large quantity that you need to convert.

Sir i purchace an old ibook g4 but i an not get the password or cd how can i change the admistrative password

In order to change your admin password if you don't know it you will have to re-install your operating system. Without the CD that contains your operating system you'll need to purchase a new one from a near-by Apple Store or order one online. You can order the Snow Leopard operating system from Amazon for about $40 here (a standard 1 user account). Make sure to back up your important files on an external hard drive first though because this will clear your computer's hard drive. Hope this helped!

Most of the songs that I have downloaded from Itunes will not play because it will say lisense problem.

This is due to the DRM (Digital Rights Management) of songs you have purchased through iTunes that are not iTunes+ (DRM Free Files). These Files show up in iTunes as AAC files and have the extension .m4p. These files will not play on any other type of player than an Apple iPod, or iPhone etc. They must first be converted to standard mp3 files. This can be achieved several ways:
1) Burn the songs to CD then re-import them as MP3 Files and copy those files to your device (time consuming)
or
2) Create an MP3 Version of the song within iTunes which is fast and easy:
step 1: Open iTunes -> Preferences
On the General Tab you will see "Import Settings" near the bottom of the window under "When You Insert a CD". Click the button "Import Settings"
Now change Import Using: to MP3 Encoder
Click OK. Click OK again to close the Preferences window.
step 2: Now back in iTunes you will see your music library. Highlight the song you want to play on your Philips MP3 player and click the right-mouse button to bring up the context menu.
You will see "Create MP3 Version" As an option on this menu.
step 3: Create MP3 Versions of the songs that will not play on your player
step 4: Copy the MP3 Version of the songs to your player. You can do this by highlighting the Newly Created MP3 Song and right-click "Show in Finder" or "Show File".

Ibook g4 freez

Freezing is a HD problem. Do you hear clicking sometimes? Sometimes on boot up is there a foler with a questionmark in it? I would get your hard drive looked at, this is the reason disc utility fails. Your hard drive has a hiccup.
