    Re: Basic questions for a starter

    Re: Basic questions for a starter

    Other than the checksum option, you can use ALAC and get better Mac compatibility whether using iTunes or not.

    Re: Older Audio CDs

    This shouldn&*8217;t happen by design for CD, but unfortunately some production facilities did have quality issues. You can search a phenomenon known as disc rot. It can happen in some cases, I have...

    Re: Year/Date Tagging philosophies

    it really depends on your player(s) and whether they are able to support the extended date info. Typically the year tag only support the 4 digit year but some software has extended support outside of...

    All of the sort tags (artist, AlbumArtist, album, title, composer) are used as the basis to sort, but the regular tags are what are displayed. Helpful to keep not only artists with last name, first...

    Re: Technophobe!

    If you are going to continue to use iTunes, as well as the iPod, and also want to move to a lossless format, you should be considering ALAC as your format.

    But I&*8217;m not sure if this will be...

    Most car units simply play the files in the order presented, as you have experienced. Gapless playback requires a read ahead function, and isn&*8217;t something car units typically support across the...

    The converter adds the new format version. If you want to then remove the original file you can delete them in the file explorer. Note that converting from one lossy format (wma) to another (mp3)...

    It is really unclear why these files change from m4a to mp3 just through a copy process. Does any other file format change when doing the same thing? Does a Word doc change, Excel, PDF? Is this just...
  12. Re: How to rip directly to external hard drive using iMac

    Not sure on Mac, but I know for the Win version there is not if iTunes is already open. But if it is not running, it does not interfere.
  13. Re: How to rip directly to external hard drive using iMac

    iTunes only has options to Show CD, Play CD, or a few options to Import CD. But there is no option to ignore that would be preferred. Usually when I am ripping I close iTunes to avoid having it poke...

    Re: Add support for Chapters / Markers (dMC)

    Apple recently added support for tags with Work and Movement. I assume that this was for iTunes if you are using ALAC. Are these something you are using in your ALAC files?

    Re: ac3 decoder update.

    I wasn&*8217;t able to find that and get it working with this plugin. But it was just one file I I did get another program to work in this case. Looks like the ac3 support was abandoned.

    What audio format are you using? If you have a lossless one like FLAC or ALAC by nature there should be no gaps. AFAIK VLC should be able to handle this. If using lossy formats like mp3, then there...

    If this is only going to be a one-off conversion, perhaps using Tune Fusion is a better way to go? It will let you convert on-the-fly and dump your selection directly to the USB device you are going...

    The Album Artist has to be the same for all tracks on the Album to keep it listed as one Album.
