Moderators

There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.


The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.


Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

Have you perhaps considered the fact that iTunes may not support audio books? What format are they? .mp3?

Have you tried playing it on another player (like Quictime) just to see if it works? I don't even know how an audio book works. Does it have chapters and stuff or does it go straight thru?

Go to the Shared folder (remember, not the one in the Library, but in the Home directory on the Finder, eh?) and select one of those files, press Cmd-I (the Cmd key is the one with the Apple in case you don't know) and click 'Open with'. Choose the right application (iTunes) from there and see if double-clicking will do the job.
Otherwise, go to iTunes and press Cmd-O. Try adding the file like that.

Yes, Audio books are just like any mp3 file / song, they act exactly the same.

And this same problem also vexes me. Mac OS.10.2.8 / Limewire 4.2.6 ( I have 4.3.3 beta but it won't mount in disk utility).

- iTunes (under Limewire prefs) is checked - and applied

- Many many other mp3 files have downloaded and played, and imported to iTunes. large and small.

- I have changed the file name (not the ext.) to reduce the amount of characters, still no change.

- I have manually "dragged & dropped" the file from "shared" directly over the iTunes library. Nothing.

- I have attempted to open /add file from iTunes side (version 4.7.1.), still nothing.

- file never said it was corrupt. File downloaded and verified. File icon is not blank. It looks like any other file.

- I've read pages and pages of threads in many forums, and the problem doesn't look to be addressed fully (case in point the response to this old thread). I assume this is another kink yet to be ironed out in future Limewire products. I don't have Limewire Pro, however I fail to see how that would help. If so, please explain.

I'm still open to suggestion, if anyone has ideas. Thanks in advance.

Futhermore, (I wanted to "edit" but I will need to register, which I'll do momentarily) I have downloaded other audiobook / song mp3 files after the other files didn't add to iTunes library. The others worked.

In short, it seems I get 7 or 8 out of every 10 files I download. So, it's not a matter of just getting any files to iTunes, but rather those specific troublesome files to iTunes.

I suspect the files in question, in some way unknown, are corrupt (though they show no signs to that effect).

Well I guess I'll just start over.

I was hoping for a way to save the "completed files" that are in my shared folder. Perhaps some way to convert, or still be able to transfer them to iTunes. It took a long time to get these files and I'm not ready to trash them just yet.

I will search for the files and download them again. Perhaps downloading twice will do something. I'll just check the dialog box to rewrite it. I admit, I do have a lot of files like this (completed but never went to iTunes). Dozens of hours of mp3 files.

(I just hope the data that isn't working for me - being shared - is also not working for others). If I can't get them to work I might have to tag them as "incomplete" to warn others using my shared folder.

I'll post my results.

First, LW Pro would indeed not affect anything on thr problem at hand AFAIK.

Next, have you tried playing said troublesome files on another player (Quicktime, anything?)?
