I-tunes and other issues

Q: I-tunes and other issues

My I-tunes started acting a little funny two days ago and the problem seems to be consistant with all of the media players on my computer (Windows Media Player and Windows Media Center on Windows XP). I am also running with the most updated versions of all of the players.

The sound is breaking up causing the track to sound like it is skipping and when I try to watch a film or a music video the picture and sound are not synched up. The soundtrack also sounds like it is breaking up. It also does this if I try to watch a video on the internet as well.

Thank you for your time,
Misty!

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.)

Hi all!!
I am experiencing a problem when I click on i-tunes store , as soon as it opens not even before I try to hit on one of the Movie Trailers, it crashes my WXP SP3 OS.
The same happens when I am listening to a song and I hit on the i-Tunes view> "show visualiser" option, my system crashes and I have to restart it.
Is there a way to work around this problem??

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 had access to my base computer (Vista) from my laptop (Vista) although with a few hiccups, but after installing i-tunes on the base computer I am shut out of even the my picture, music, video folders on the base computer. It will not allow me in with the "owner" signed in even though both the owner and a second signon are listed as administrator. I simply can't get into that and several other similar folders. I discovered that I could get in if I went through the shared network tab on another computer that was was previously mapped, but not from the "my documents" on the main system. I have had many security issues with Vista, as I am running XP on three other systems and Mac OS on another laptop. It seems as though i-tunes has moved the actual picture and music files and the shortcuts and pointers are not working!

This is in a list of the security and access related issues I have had. Is there way to create a superuser who have override the general system security are do I just suffer??

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.

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 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?

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

Yes, it is still quite true. The only media player that will work with songs purchased through iTunes, is an iPod product.

veribestteac said:

There is no legal way of directly converting DRM protected iTunes files into files that can be imported into Windows Media Player.

All is not lost though. The iTunes software allows you to burn music CDs filled with purchased music. Windows Media Player (WMP) should then be able to convert the contents of the music CDs into WMP compatible files. You will loose all song title and artist information in the process and have to manually re-enter them in WMP.

I would leave your music in folder on the external drive
then remove the music from itunes

then add the files from the external drive - NOTE however, each time you plug in the external drive there is always a chance that the DRIVE LETTER will change and this will upset itunes

Just curious if anyone else have experienced this with the loading of I-tunes, and what followed which was Qttask and Bonjour Service.

After install it really dragged my system down, so I have prevented them from starting in MSCONFIG startup and services, but I just discovered that it apparently shut off my windows firewall and autoupdate functions. Not only did it shut down those important functions, I-Tunes and Bonjour added there-selves to the exceptions list on the firewall. I've unchecked them from the exceptions list. I know I had the autoupdate and firewall on and didn't personally turn them off. Wow, scary... I dealt with qttask in the past on a different win98 computer and it was evil to keep in check.
