Windvd Audio Problems

Hey I am having trouble importing audio files into my project. I have tried from iTunes and Cd's. Do I have to convert the files to mp3 or wav and if so how do I do that?? When I go into Import media files and find the song I want to import nothing comes up in the file name under audio files and if I try to drag and drop I get this message "Make sure that this is a valid file type and that it's contents have not been corrupted". Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Let me know if you need more info. Cheers!!

You are using windvd so that must mean you use windows, i'm not sure if you have to convert but if you do, (just try)
if you want to use it from a cd, start windows media player, go to the rip menu, and rip the songs to the prefered location

itunes format is probably m4p, m4a or m4b, you can convert these with Protected Music Converter
it's even free!

Any way to remove the DRM from iTunes Apple Music?

Here's one way:
1. Using iTunes, burn a music CD with the songs you want.
2. Import the CD you just created. Use the iTunes > Preferences > Import Settings to set the type of audio file you want iTunes to create when importing the songs.
3. iTunes will import the tracks as "Track 1", "Track 2", etc. You can rename the tracks to the original song titles.

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.

Itunes - is there any way for itunes to pay .flac files? I'd like to be able to download flac files, import into itunes, and stream to apple tv

Yes you can play .flac files in iTunes. Its very easy just download a apple script named "fluke". Download from the following link if you are a MAC user.
http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/28768/fluke/

It's free for MAC but if you are a Windows user you can try the conversion software dBpoweramp (Free limited version will still get the job done) and download the trial version from the following.
http://www.dbpoweramp.com/dmc.htm
This link also gives some explanation on how to use this program and you can directly install it on your Windows computer.

(In order to open the link just hover your mouse on the link and click)

The following link gives the instructions for using Fluke script for MAC users

Why cant I add music.....all suuported audio music files....the program is not recognizing any of my music files as "supported files." ?????

I found the following information on Individual Software's website. Apparently, music downloaded from the Internet, or bought online, for example using iTunes, may cause problems with SlideShow Expressions. I include a link for more reading; go to 'frequently asked questions': http://support.individualsoftware.com.

Here is some of the info:

Why won't my music files work in Photo & Video Expressions? [SlideShow too, I guess]

Photo & Video Expressions is not compatible with audio files that have been protected by Digital Rights Management (DRM) functionality. Most audio files purchased online through Internet music retailers like iTunes, Urge, or Rhapsody are encrypted with some form of DRM. Similarly, audio files that have been extracted from a CD or DVD (the process known as "ripping") using certain media applications (iTunes, Windows Media Player, etc.) often have default settings that encrypt the files extracted.

There is no way to use DRM audio files purchased from online music retailers with Photo & Video Expressions. However, if you want to use music and audio files that you have extracted from your CD collection, then all you have to do is change the ripping setting in your media application before you extract the files to your computer.


Suggestions are given on how to change ripping settings in iTunes and Windows Media Player.


However, it is always good to contact the technical support team at individualsoftware.com. You first have to register your product with them in order to get help, but this online assistance is free and worthwhile trying out.

ITunes will not import music from my hard drive when I copy the music or try to add the music to my library.

Make sure that the music you are trying to sync is not .WMA file types.

To convert other file types into .MP3, please google and install Switch Audio Converter.

After everything has been converted, your songs are ready to be imported to iTunes.

Olympus VN-2100PC exported files

The only way I have found to convert the files is to use Nero or ITunes. Those are the only two methods I've found to read the file. ITunes can both burn them to an audio cd and convert the file to mp3.
