I have a new IPOD shuffle (4gb). The on-line instructions says I can drag & drop music from my computer to the I Tunes Liabrary so I can install on my IPDO Shuffle. DOESN'T WORK!

Does anyone know how I can get music I already have on my computer to the I Tunes Liabrary so I can install them on my IPOD Shuffle?

If you have a link to instructions that WORK, I'd also appreciate that.

Thanks

I'm not an expert on Itunes, but I do use it. These existing songs -- are they all in the same folder, or are they distributed in several folders?

I've just tried moving (dragging) one song from one folder to the I Tunes liabary
and nothing happens.

Do you have the latest version of iTunes? As stated it should be just drag and drop. ( you have to be in the music section of iTunes to be able to do that) :thumbsup:

Take a look here: Adding Music to iTunes from your computer

I have ITunes version 10. Tried everything you suggested but still can't get a file in the I Tunes /music/library from my computer music folders.

Thanks for your suggestion anyway.

What's the file extension of the song you're trying to move: .mp3, .wav, etc?

That's a Real Media audio format, isn't it? I doubt that an Ipod could play it -- and that may be why Itunes won't add it to your music library.


Actually, just Googled and it looks like that is indeed your problem.

Thanks,

I'll try to get them converted to .wav, or mp3. Which do you suggest for getting the best music?

:thumbsup:

I believe that format is already compressed, so I don't think there's any advantage to using the .wav format -- I'd go with .mp3 at 160 or 256 kbps. The files should be a manageable size and the quality should be very good.
