ITunes Mac :: Transferring Songs To An Mp3 Player?

I have an Apple IMac with ITunes. Both are the latest version. I transferred (or downloaded?) about 700 songs from my ITunes to a friends's ScanDisk Sansa Fuze 8GB MP3 player. They were only able to hear two of the songs I transferred. The other songs did not play. I since have heard that almost all the songs I downloaded from various sources into my ITunes are not in MP3 format. That songs in ITunes usually are not in MP3 format even though the song file extension is ".mp3". That is why my friend could only hear two songs, because the other songs were not in MP3 format.

ITunes has an "Advanced" label on its tool bar. If I click on Advanced I get a menu which includes
an option called "Create an MP3 version". If I highlight my ITunes songs and then click on "Create an MP3 version" and transfer those songs I now created into my friend's Scan Disk MP3 player, will they then be able to hear and play the songs I transferred on their Scan Disc MP3 Player?

ITunes Mac :: MP3 Player Songs - Transfer Songs?
I think I already know the answer to this one. But here we go, I was wondering If i can transfer all my songs from my MP3 player made by Samsung to my MAC, to Itunes or anything else. When I put in my Samsung mp3 player in to USB on MAC nothing is recognized. As well I tried to install the software by Samsung into my MAC and it does not install. it because MP3 software and player are only for PC? I have lots of songs still in MP3 format on my External, otherwise I have too download another 3000 songs again. Any suggestions or thoughts on this?

ITunes Mac :: Mp3 Player Not Compatible
I've just migrated from pc, and my biggest headache is my Creative Zen mp3 player's conversion software doesn't work on my new MacBook Pro. The player wants mp3 files so a conversion from itunes downloads is required. I also want to be able to move music purchased into my player's playlists while it's hooked up to my mac - so much easier than the alternative. It all worked fine on Windows, but no more. I do NOT want to spend $300 for a copy of Windows for a partition just to be able to do this. Has anyone found some great software that will do all this? I was using Creative Centrale, and it was brilliant, but it will not run on the mac.

ITunes Mac :: Transferring Songs From Desktop To Laptop?
I have Home Sharing on and both my desktop mac and MacBook Pro authorized. I can see all the songs in my desktop from my MacBook but when I try to play any song or transfer any song that is a "Protected AAC audio file", I get a box indicating that my computer is not authorized. I go to the STORE menu and authorize my laptop again, and all looks good until I try to play or download the file again and I get the same box, over and over.

Also, I found a thread that said I should do a "GET INFO" on the files that have this authorization issue and check under the summary menu to see what account name the music was purchased under. I do not see any name at all. When I look under the MUSIC menu in iTunes on my MacBook and under INFO, I see my account name.

ITunes Mac :: Transferring Songs From A Large Playlist?
I'm a DJ and I have 3 large playlists (about 2500+ songs each) in iTunes. I have them organized in such a way that I would be able to drag and drop all the songs from the playlist to a folder and move that folder to a different drive (from my Mac Pro to my laptop). However now that I've spent all this time finally organizing all these songs I have found that I can't select all and drag and drop the songs out of iTunes anymore - can't even drag them from iTunes to a folder on my desktop! Is there a setting I'm missing that needs to be changed?

ITunes Mac :: Samsung Mp3 Player Not Showing Up On Desktop / Connected Via Usb Port
I have recently converted over to MAC. Really happy so far. Everything that i used on my PC has come over fine cameras etc. But i have a Samsung mp3 player. I know that itunes does not use anything other than ipod so i was hoping to just drag stuff into the my samsung. When i plugged it in nothing would happen, my mp3 player would say it is connected and charging but the mac would not say anything. Being a novice i stubbled into System profiler, it names my Mp3 player as being in a usb port. So my mac is showing up there but no where else. I would really like to no what to do next. I would like to keep using this Mp3 player for a little while longer and dont want to have to buy another one just yet. Oh and another thing. My friend came round with his cheap as Mp3 player and it worked fine, it showed up in desktop and i could see all his songs and photos and stuff.

ITunes :: Sync A Mp3 Player To It?
I have an old, 4 GB sony mp3 player, and I'd like to transfer my videos to it. With the music, I can just drag it into the drive that represents the player on the screen, but it won't let me view the movies if I transfer them in the same way. I'm thinking this might be because iTunes has to recognize the device, since the file type is a protected MPEG-4. 

Just fyi, yes the device is m4v compatible. how to sync a non-apple device to iTunes?

OS X :: Making ITunes Default MP3 Player
I searched the forums and couldn't find anything on it. I recently reinstalled Quicktime, now everytime I download an .MP3 file to my desktop or wherever, it has Quicktime as the default MP3 player..... Even when I right click it and do Open With... and select Always Open With (iTunes) it just selects that one file to open with iTunes everytime. I was seeing if there was a way to make iTunes my default MP3 player for all mp3s..... It seems to only be occuring with newly downloaded files. All my older MP3's still open in iTunes.

Applications :: ITunes Won't Add Mp3 Songs?
This has happened to me many times now. Certain .mp3 songs will not open in iTunes at all. I will double-click on them and iTunes will pop up, but the song will not appear in the Library. I have also tried dragging it into the library manually, but it still doesn't show up.

I have read about this problem before, so it is not an isolated issue, however no one seems to have an answer that actually works. Some suggested changing the file to .mp4, but this doesn't work either.

I'm looking at getting an external hard drive in the hope that I can drag and drop from my winXP machine all of my mp3s etc... then plug it into my mac and access them (not transfer back just access)... however, some external drives say they are formatted for different OS's / some say they are mac ready / some say windows ready. What I need.. looking at between 350-500gb of storage required.

ITunes Mac :: Mac Crashed And Lost Songs - How To Recover Songs
After a bad crash caused by memory deterioration, it took 3 days to get my G5 mac back to normal. I used Time Machine for some of the retrieval. I had last backed up on August 15th. Two weeks isn't too bad, considering what it could have been.

I had downloaded 4 or 5 tunes from the itunes store in late August. I'm not even sure what all of them were. Is there someplace i can find an online record of my recent purchases, and sign something or other to get those songs back onto itunes? Or are they gone forever?

I don't know if this will help, but here's the peice I'm interested in turning into sheet music: Dave Matthews Band's #41 mp3. This is for myself only, and I don't plan on sharing this. I understand this is the artist's work, and he should own the rights to it.
