Random Tunes

Q: Random Tunes

Hi;

Not sure if this question can be answered to my satisfaction or not, but here goes and please excuse the ignorance. I have a whole bunch of songs downloaded in one of my Vista folders and I want to randomly put them on a thumb drive rather than in the alphabetical order they are now in (artists alphabetically). I realize my playback device should have a random button as well to mix them up every time should I choose, but is there a way to put them on the drive in a random fashion just in case the playback device doesn't have the button I'm looking for? thanks in advance.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Random Tunes

Other than changing the filename, no.

for example you add 001 - filename.mp3, then the next one 002 - filename.mp3 but then it will be in that order all the time. I would be very surprised if you don't have a randomizer/shuffle button.

Hey guys.
My i tunes and quicktime are both upto date, but when i try accessing the i-tunes store i get a Microsoft Visual C++ runtime error and it then closes I-Tunes.

I can access my currently downloaded music, apps etc.... if i click on the x when it says i-tunes store is loading, and can rome through i-tunes fine.
It will also play all my music with no problems.

Have done a registry clean, Virus Scan, Disk Check, Disk cleanup and Defrag and still no luck

It does however come up every now and again, and can access it and download music, apss and things.

Any advice on how to get proper functionality out of it, as it is really bugging me.

Thanks in advance.

(P.S. i have looked at previous topics and non display all the same characteristics i have)

I transfer old audio cassettes to CD-R's for family members and friends using Audacity, Been doing this for well over a year now.
Copy the media right over to the hard drive, save as an MP3 and burn it to disc using either WMP or Win Xp's feature.
Daughter got an upgrade to her I-Pod stuff and Quicktime.
Now I can only burn with I-tunes' (slower than molasses) software.
If I use WMP, a dialog window opens and say, WMP can't read this file, It's not an MP3 or is missing a codec, or something to that affect.
If I use Xp, it copies but it sounds like "ZiiiipZiiiipZiiiip". If that's a sound.

Can anyone tell me what happned?
Thank, Jeff

edit.
I should add this is not copyrighted material I'm copying to cd's. It's family stuff like Grandma playing the piano or little Johnny reciting a poem.

Just wanted to be clear.

I have a CD I burnt about 10 years ago. This disk will play fine in any player I put it into. However, I pop into my PC, and nothing. I want to rip my song back off this disk for my MP3 player, but I can't seem to to access it. If I look at the drive in Explorer it shows that it's an audio CD. if I open the drive, it shows nothing. Note: i have 2 drives, both DVD drives, one Sony and one LiteON. WMP 10 doesn't recognize it as an audio CD.
So, I decided to try to copy the disk. Roxio Disk Copier says this disk is "Reserved by Roxio Drag-To-Disk Kernel"...it says this in the Copier windows, below the source drive, as it's content. This disk was burnt using whatever drag-to-disk version (by Adaptec) was out 10 years ago...prolly like 3 or 4 I guess...Anything I do here?
Thanks,

Q: I Tunes

Hi
I am new to the board. I would like to know more about I Tunes. What are the advantages of downloading i Tunes? I am keen to get an iPod. Thanks
 

A:I Tunes

The only real advantage to using iTunes is the iPod .... you have to use iTunes to load music on to it. Like most of the media players out there it does a decnet job and has become my player of choice (because I own an iPod and can't be bothered mucking about with more than one media player). iTunes music store is another thing though. I hate it, mainly because they use their own proprietary format to copy protect the files and other than the iPod there aren't many players out there that support it.

I just bought an ipod and have my music collection spread over 3 computers work/home/notebook.

Help
 

A:i tunes help

Ipods will only sync with one music library, so unfortunately you need to transfer all music to one pc and sync from there... it's to do with copyright.. like if you could sync with any pc you could theoretically distribute purchased music to anyone. bad. they only want your ipod to sync with one library.
there could be ways to get round this... but i;m sure we wouldn't be allowed to discuss them on TSG

What settings could I have fouled up?

A:I-tunes Library

Actually you can't BUTI'll assume you've got a regular ipod and windows. When yuo first connected the ipod to the first PC the ipod called that PC 'Home." Each time you connect it will download the library on it automatically. When you connect the iPod to a different PC, that ipod asks for permission before synchronizing with this music library. If you choose Auto-sync, your ipod recognizes the second PC as its home PC and breaks the original PC link. If you do not choose Auto-sync, the ipod switches to manual update mode, allowing you to select and drag songs, albums, or playlists from the second PC to your ipod. BUT you can copy it with your ipod this is the how to from appleSynchronization occurs only in one direction, from your computer to your iPod. This means you cannot transfer music, automatically or manually, from your iPod to a computer, and you cannot use iPod to copy a music library from one computer to another. But, if you legally are allowed to copy music files, you can configure your iPod as a hard disk to move music files. Click here

Also, when I reorganize the Itunes folder through "my computer", then go to play them in Itunes they won't play because they have been moved from there orignal loacation. Is there a way to resink the library w/out having to search for each song individually?
