Why is iTunes so picky?
« on: 11/02/2009 13:31:47 »
Hello techmeisters 

I want to put a song onto my ipod, but it's not a compatible file for iTunes...  is there any way I can change that...


(I have tried 'save as' but it does not give me the right options...)

Thanks

Yes. If it is MP3, then it should be compatible.

iPOD compatible files

If they are already mp3, then there is another problem....

Hmmm... That certainly should work with iTunes.

Does the file play in anything else?  WMP, Winamp etc?

If not, it'll be a file issue.  You may be able to re-encode the file in something like Audacity, that may fix it.
