Default itunes

Anybody having problems uploading more than 1 or 2 cd's in a row? I can do 1 maybe 2 and then it freezes up (itunes) and I have to ctl-alt-del to close the program. Then I have to shut the machine down to get itunes to even load. I have a pc running windows xp. I don't want to get into a mac since it's not used at work.

just a guess - try and slow down the burn time in prefeneces - I think you're overloading the memory cache....

Thanks Glen. I'll try half the cd instead of the whole thing. I want to fill it up before I go out so I can fish to some decent music. I like your idea on the ipod setup on the boat. I just need some time to get used to it.

Thanks for the help - I'll let you know if that works.

Get into a Mac. You can do your work (PC) stuff at home on it. Then no more itunes problems, or any other typical PC problems for that matter.

Better yet, toss the iPod and get yourself a Creative Labs Zen media player. A hell of a lot easier to use than an iPod, a hell of a lot better quality audio and video, has an FM tuner built in with 32 station preset you can program.

Open your Zen in one browser, open your ‘My Music’ folder or CD drive in another browser, then just drag and drop any/all music into or out of your Zen. It is that simple. But first, go to the control panel, click on [remove programs] and get that iTunes garbage off your computer. It is just plain stupid to require special software to be able to use an MP3 player. There is no need for it.

The only thing I‘ve found easier to use than my Ipod is my dork.

Ray, you are spending entirely too much time in the house. You need to get out more often, do something that requires both hands.

I got an ipod for xmas and I miss my creative zen. Ipod/itunes is easy to use and works well, but once there's a problem, your f%&ed. I had a drive failure and tried to recover my music from the ipod. That was a god awful nightmare. The end result was a complete mess. Everything is way too locked down with zero flexibility. The whole ipod, apple, itunes thing is great for the average user, but if you want to do more with your computer, the PC world is still king.

Can you download your iTunes library to a new iPod? from the same PC?

Eyeball, Size requires both hands. You are right though, I gotta get out and go fishing.

I personally don't like a .mp3 playerthat has to be tied to a software; but thats me. I have a cheapo RCA Lyra that I use that shows up in Windows Explorer as just another drive letter. Makes it easy to drag and drop anything to it--not just .mp3's or wma's--think of a thumb drive that plays MP3's.

One day, we won't need a separate .mp3 player; they will be ancient history. All you'll need will be a thumb drive--whether that is USB or firewire that plugs into the main stereo (car or boat).
