Dearest Technologocally Knowing Peeps,

As a sheepy I of course luff to make sweet muzak !...I also luff to blatantly copy it and make ' cough cough ' backups and give them to all my friends !!

See this disc ?




I used this disc to successfully ' backup ' an audio cd recently.

Now then, I-Choons could not make the copy backup successfully and said there was not enough space on the disc...however Windows Media just happily copied backed up the entire contents of the original disc onto it.

How come ?.
..before ewe ask I can confirm that the burn rate was exactly the same in both programs !


so...I know I wont be using I choons again but wondered why Windows Media was able to fit it on the whole disc where I choons could not ! ?


whajafink ?


Neil

In my experience iTunes is the world's second most aggravating piece of software (after the Windows OS).

itunes is principle developed in unix and hence has less access to Windows compression codecs. Windows has always been reasonably good on keeping quality of audio and visual except dang "Paint"(even Paint .NET has had its problems).
The itunes program could be out of date or not geared for windows codecs well enough.
