    I just did a quick search and it looks like iTunes 8.2 needs OSX 10.4 or higher.

    Talking

    So when I click on "software update", itunes doesn't come up as an "option".

    I was able to download it by another site.

    Got it now...... and installed.

    Thanks rwm!

    Cool

    Just imported "THIS IS THE MOODY BLUES".
    It's a two disk set .... with all the best songs from the first, second and I believe some third album .... twenty-five songs.
    This is a great remaster cut.

    Thanks for ALL your help!, h

    Question

    Why do you use Itunes 8.2.1?
    I downloaded the combo files ... after they were installed. I did the System update .... which ended-up giving me Itunes v9.2.1.

    I have been using that version.

    Once again, is there a reason why you use 8.2.1 or is it because you never need/use it, because you're on newer boxes?

    This just might be a BS question and doesn't deserve an answer.

    Question

    How would I go about finding out what encoding I used a couple of years ago on some songs?

    I imported the songs into the library, don't know what the encoding would be .... this from a few years ago.

    Thanks, h

    If you right click on the columns (where it says name, album, artist etc) you will get a list of all the different columns you can choose from. One of them is 'Kind' check that and a new column will appear and tell you what encoding you used (aiff, mp3, aac etc.) You can also choose 'Bit Rate' to see the quality level you used.

    Because it's the latest version that my G3s support, and I need them to all be on the same version for streaming music from the G4 tower over the LAN.

    Question

    So, I'm using 9.2.1 Itunes with os 10.4.11.

    The person I'll be giving the burned CD to ... has a Mac Book with os 10.6.x.
    Her Ipod is a couple of years old.
    She'll be 1o.6.x to upload the AAC files.

    Does the Ipod care which operating system is used?
    Are all Itune files universal between operating systems?

    Maybe I should go back to using .mp3?

    thanks, h

    The iPod has it's own OS and cares nothing for what OS may have burned a disk which was later imported by a different OS

    The iPod only cares that the music file is in a format that it can read and since you are using iTunes that is guaranteed.

    If this is older equipment you might want to get cd-r and not cd-rw

    Some older drives disliked the RW media

    CD-R's are usually much cheaper too

    Is there a way to add music from a DVD?
    No video just the music?
    As in a music video ... no movie ...
    Each song and video are separated from one another.
    thanks, h
