Apr 23, 2012

I've been working on this powerpoint (2010 mac version) for days now, and all of a sudden, right before I'm about to submit it to my professor and class, the slideshow crashes. Non-stop. I have audio attached to every slide as aiff files, and the crash always comes when the slideshow goes from the first slide to the 2nd. Powerpoint simply freaks out.

ITunes :: Converting Files When Importing - AIFF To AAC?

Jun 5, 2012

I was working with my brother import his cds into Itunes on his new Mac. I told him to import them as AAC files, but unfortunately he thought I said AIFF. He has imported his whole collection at CD quality, but now his computer is nearly full with his Itunes library. Is there a way to move the files to another hard drive, then create a new Itunes library, and have Itunes convert the AIFF files to AAC files when you drag and drop them into a new library? Or does he need to re-import his whole cd collection?The other option I thought of is to export as AAC from Itunes?

ITunes For Mac :: Convert Playlist To AIFF And Then Find Files

Jun 23, 2014

I have a playlist of 28 songs that are various file types.  I would like to convert them to aiff.  I went to the playlist and selected all, right clicked and selected Create aiff version.  It made them but I have to search for each one and then put it in a new playlist. 

Is there a way to make iTunes put them in one folder or a better way to gather them all to the new playlist then clicking on Music on the left and putting the title in the search box and dragging them one by one to the new playlist?

ITunes :: Won't Import/convert AIFF Files With 5.1/24bit/48kHz

May 7, 2012

I have ripped a Audio-DVD with 5.1/24bit/48kHz to FLAC some time ago. Now I want to import them into iTunes. So first I tried Max and XLD and converted them to Apple Lossless format. But iTunes just ignores them when I drag them over the library. 

Then I thought, maybe the converters can't handle the extra channels. So I imported the files into Cubase and converted them to AIFF. Then the same procedure as before. This time, iTunes accepted 10 out of 14 tracks. Why the remaining tracks weren't imported stays a secret to me.

Now, since AIFF files aren't compressed, I tried to convert them to Apple Lossless from within iTunes. But this time it hits me with an unknown error -50.

OS X :: Burning Audiobooks From ITunes To Audio CD?

Mar 12, 2009

I just recently purchased two audio books from iTunes store and I'm having a problem backing them up. I know I can make a data DVD, but that is not what I want to do, because they are audio files. My main issue is that I want to burn the audiobooks to audio CD, but the quality always comes out very poor. I have been searching around to see if there was a way to make itunes burn to a disc image, but I was out of luck. Basically, I only have CD-RW and DVD+R DL and DVD-R blank discs, so I would need to go out and buy CD-R, if it were my only option. So far, I have tried to burn to CD-RW at both maximum possible and 2x, both of which had poor audio quality, when I tested in VLC, since iTunes would not play any of the tracks straight from the disc. How can I burn audio CDs to CD-RWs from iTunes without the resulting audio having static sound, or is there a script I can type up to have iTunes think a disc image is a blank disc, or should I just buy CD-Rs?

Applications :: Conversion AIFF To Apple Lossless In ITunes 9.0.2

Dec 28, 2009

I still have a great number of AIFF files in my music library.

I'd like to convert them to Apple Lossless, as it's the same sound quality at half the space.

I know you can create a copy of any file in another format, but it sounds quite complicated. First you have to create a copy, and then you need to delete the "original" AIFF file.

Can't I just convert an existing file without a copy, keeping also the play counts?

Applications :: Convert ITunes Songs To AIFF - Option Missing

Jun 4, 2010

I regularly receive songs in WAV format. In the past, I have always converted them to AIFF to overcome tagging limitations with WAV. Up until recently, I converted songs from WAV to AIFF by right-clicking them in iTunes, then choosing "make AIFF file" (that's not the exact wording, but similar). Just tried to do so today and found that this option is now missing! Was this removed in the latest version of iTunes [I'm running 9.1.1 (12)]? Could it perhaps be restored by some command-line entry in Terminal?

ITunes :: Lag When Playing Audio Files From NAS?

Mar 12, 2012

Setup : Itunes 9.0.2 on a Macbook 5,2 running OSX.5.8. Audio Files on NAS (brought there using "consolidate library" in itunes), libraries still on main drive. I created a NAS account with the same ID as my admin one, and connect to it with a script executed on startup. I can do exactly the same things as when audio files were on my drive. The only problem is lag, when I play next track, edit metadata,...I checked wifi, ethernet, different cables,... didn't change a thing.Moreover, I can browse through all my tracks with VLC without lag. Last evening I ran idefrag for a totally different purpose and found 'itunes music library.xml" was fragmented (≈20 MB in 7 parts), "Itunes Library" too.

Here's the thing :When I defragment these two files at startup, and then launch iTunes, the lag issue disappears.When I quit iTunes, the library files are saved but written in parts again, and the lag comes back.Finally, if I defragment the files between a quit and a start, they must be edited again because they're split up again and the lag is still there.Since I didn't add new songs, itunes must be saving stuff like playing counts, which is useless to me. Make the library read-only?

OS X :: How To Burn 700MB+ CD-R

Jun 14, 2010

A friend ripped a few CDs for me, but some of them don't fit on a standard 700MB CD-R disc. The additional data is usually negligible in size... say, 715MB total.

Is there anyway to burn these CDs on a single CD-R disc using Toast Titanium? I can't figure it out and I'm starting to get a headache..

ITunes For Mac :: Play Single Or Small Set Of MP3 / Other Audio Files And Then Stop

Jun 26, 2014

I download an mp3 file.  One of them is for a class I'm taking that has audio files as part of the course.  If I double click in Finder on the file, it begins playing in iTunes and when done, iTunes goes on to play something else.  While online is a live class, I did this and iTunes picked up a recording of a discussion I had recorded and played it aloud with my live mic to the entire class.

There are a number of things I hate about iTunes, this is but one.  In general I use it without trouble.  However, if I construct a playlist, when that list is exhausted it in some fashion known only to iitself and the developers chooses somewhere else to continue.  It tends to think of itself as a super large iPod and keeps playing until I manually stop it.  Since I have many days of audio in the library, this is not particularly sensible. What is the best way to play a single or small set of mp3 or other audio files and then stop?   iMac with Mavericks 10.9.3

Applications :: Convert SWF Files To MP3 - Free Audio Extraction Or Video / Audio Converter Exist?

May 29, 2010

I want to convert some video files (specifically swf in this case) to audio files so I can listen on my iPod. I looked everywhere and can't find some free software that does that. There are tons that have trial periods with lots of limitations (like it won't convert anything larger than a 5k size file) so I don't want those because I won't know if the thing works well unless I pay for it. I'm not opposed to paying for a converter IF I know it works awesome on a Mac.

OS X :: Burning Music Files To Disc?

May 7, 2009

I have a new macbook with the latest OS, I'm burning my itunes music folder to a disc. I notice that the folder burned to the disc is slightly larger (in bytes) than the original folder in itunes. It's still the same 4.18GB size, but if you notice the bytes on the burned dvd compared to that on the original itunes folder, the dvd bytes are higher. I even tried burning a second one, after restarting the computer, and the bytes match the original dvd I burned. Why the discrepancy between the original folder size in bytes on my computer and then one I burned onto a disc?

Software :: Burning Individual Files To A DVD?

Dec 7, 2009

I've downloaded a Linux Distro known as a Live DVD in ISO format. I want to burn this to a DVD for future use but would like to change what is in the ISO before burning. There are several files that I would like included so I won't have to have a second CD/DVD later.

DiskImageMounter does a great job of opening the ISO but it is readonly. If I copy the files to a directory, make my changes and then burn the DVD, the disk isn't bootable. And I am at a loss about how to continue. Can I burn individual files to a DVD and specify that the DVD will be bootable? Is there a software tool that will take the individual files and folders, and make a new ISO file that would be bootable?

I guess you can see where I am going. When I google for it, I find results for creating a backup of the Leopard install DVD.

MacBook Pro :: Burning Media Files To A CD?

Mar 6, 2012

I have a bunch of media files (videos) that I want to store onto a CD-RW so I'm not wasting any unnecessary HD space on my Mac. However, when I attempted to do so it created a seemingly permanent file directly on my desktop with those videos that I cannot delete without compromising my ability to ever view those files again.  In so doing, I seem to be unintentionally duplicating media files and decreasing the space on my HD as a result. How might I save video files to a simple CD without having to have a copy on my system to be able to view them?  The file in question has the "burn" icon on its cover.  You see, just to test myself, I tried to delete it in my trash can, and it wouldn't allow me ti view those videos and movies without first re-instating that duplicate file.  The filre originated as a CD until the burning phase was completed.

OS X :: Video Files On The Disc Are Unplayable After Burning?

Apr 30, 2009

I recently burned a couple of .avi and .mpg video files to a dual-layer DVD+R as a data disc (DVD-ROM) using the program "Burn" which is, in essence, a nicer front-end to Mac OS X's burning capabilities.

However, after burning, the video files on the disc are now unplayable. It seems like they are corrupt.

Am I doing something wrong? Do dual-layer discs need special settings to make it work as data discs?
