Oh & just in regard to saving Playlists within LW.

Point 3 is how you add your songs to the playlist. When you decide to save the playlist (point 7) yo ucan save it as a m3u playlist file. This file can be opened by iTunes, Winamp & most likely most other players that can import m3u playlist files. (Likewise LW can import a Winamp playlist file.)

Transfewr to IPod
Try Red Chair Anapod for Ipod. It works great and is very easy to use, just drag and drop.

Deleting Songs once on mini Ipod
Does anyone have an easy way to delete or remove songs once they have been loaded on to a mini Ipod? I took them out of my library (I think) by clicking on CLEAR becuse my son and I share a playlist. So, either I need to create two playlists (which I don't know how to do) or learn to remove songs that on or the other of us does not want. I am afraid if I plug in his ipod to the computer now, and the songs are not on the list, it'll clear them all off of his ipod. Too confusing? HELP??

iPod Forum (click on link) is a worthwhile place for both Windows, Mac & Linux users of iPod to check out. There's a forum, freeware available to help you, etc. Check it out! There's also iTunes forum sections for windows & mac users.

Worth knowing about is ipod reverse music transfer which is about extracting your songs from iPod back to your or another computer. There's different 3rd party utilities which can do this for mac & windows.
Mac users should see iTunes & iPod issues for Mac OSX

To copy songs to iPod without iTunes: Anapod, or ephPod / EphPod, or MediaMonkey & also see iPod Utilities. WinAmp using ml iPod plug-in. More can be found at the iPod forum.

For videos, they need to be either mpeg 4 or H.264 format. So probably best to aim to get a hold of those video format files. Mac OSX users who have QuickTime Pro can convert other formats easily to either of these formats. There's now other free programs for OSX users to convert easily (search the apple site.) For windows users, see Video to iTunes/iPod. One conversion tool for windows users is 3GP & how to use it & also Videora iPod Converter (free/donateware) & others are in development. Others I've seen are not free & had mixed reports about them. To copy them without iTunes: Anapod is one. But again, either the iPod/iTunes forum is a good place to search for up-to-date articles about this or the apple forum. More about 'how to use' Videora & 'other' techniques of converting video from different sources to iPod see HERE (for links). AND Handbrake (FREE) - MacOSX, Linux & Windows, also MPEG Streamclip (FREE) - MacOSX & Windows are both great converters. Dual-Pass recommended for better quality for each of these & check the option for iPod conversion on each of these programs.

ucats it sounds like you need to manually add & remove songs from your iPod. 'Manually Manage Songs & Playlists.' Did you see the iPod Tutorial I think Lessons 4 & 6 might help you to understand how to overcome your issue. I would recommend EVERYBODY use the manually add & remove songs from their iPod. (Sample image bottom of next page. Manual settings for iPod) No complications then. ;) Tutorial lesson for this is HERE & play the video tutorial to let it show you & click Learn More for more details.

It seems the apple tutorial page has been changed, as have location of some of their other document pages. So I'll add some details here. How to Manually add songs to iPod:
To manually add to your iPod:
1. Make sure that "Manually manage music" is selected.
2. Click Music (below Library, on the left side of the iTunes window) and then drag songs and playlists to your iPod.

QuickTime video tutorials: _ 1. Manual Updating of iPod, _____ 2. Update selected playlists only to iPod
_____3. Add/Play video on iPod/iTunes, _____ 4. Transfer iTunes Library via iPod

How to Share your iTunes songs: _ 1. artist & album organisation ___ 2. How to Share Folders (click on link)

* Warning 'some' of the above QuickTime videos are encoded using H.264 or 3ivx with AAC audio. If you are having problems watching any of them, then use this player: VLC - (click on link) _ (choose nearest mirror site).

I sympathise with this poster as I have a similar query. I am new to LW - so much superior to Kazaa. What's the easiest way to load files into my mp3 player. On Kazaa you just made up a playlist connected the mp3 player to your pc rt clicked each track and it loaded straight in. I have the paid for version of Nero so wondering should I transfer my LW downloaded files to there. Although not sure how to do that.

Lord of the Rings March 15th, 2005 06:45 PM

If you're using Nero as your main player then see: Burning an audio CD from your MP3's which will explain how to get the files to Nero. As for any other type of portable mp3 player, read the manual. hahaha I don't know why you're posting here by the way. Why don't you get iTunes to do your playback. A playlist you must not forget is simply a reference to the songs, so if you move the original location of the songs then that playlist will become unusable. QCD (click on link) is another decent player with in-built codecs & plays ALL music types & is free!

Hollypear March 16th, 2005 04:56 PM

Sorry if I posted in the wrong place just thought my query was similar!!! Read the manual - bought my mp3 player in Tenerife only to find when I got back to Scotland could have got it for 1/4 of the price and the manual is written in gobbledegook. Thanks for the advice on itunes. I thought it was for rich ipod owners so I have downloaded it now.

ipod transfer
Before you all snap at me and say 'read the past posts!!!', I've read them all and followed the instructions. I still can't figure this out.

My Limewire files are in itunes as a shared folder. My problem is I cannot drag them to a playlist or to the main library or to the ipod icon. They do not move like songs in the main library. I know other people are having this problem. I've tried everything I can think of...can someone please help?? I just got the ipod and want to be able to upload my songs!!


Lord of the Rings March 18th, 2005 07:34 PM

Follow direction no. 1 & Add them to your library using the control & O keys & holding down the SHIFT key for multiple selections. This will add the music files directly! The LW list as refered is simply a reference to the files ok! It's a playlist to files that don't exist within LW's library. So follow direction 1 or follow the other suggestions. Hope this is of some help. Unfortunately, the process for adding songs to iTunes library for windows has some significant differences to those of mac. For mac the process is straight forward but for windows is a little more stubborn! So follow those directions on page one! ;)
