Until now, I have imported music into my iTunes Mediathek in two ways: buying directly in iTunes or downloading from my CDs. No problem with this...

 

My question: Is it possible to buy music in other format (e.g. mp3 from Amazon) and download it in iTunes or am I going to have compability problems?

 

Thanks in advance!

    Amazon uses a proprietary downloader and you simply need to copy the files from their download folder to your iTunes, either by moving them to the library folder and adding them, or dropping them directly onto iTunes and letting iTunes add them to the folder.

    or setting the Amazon downloader prefs to automatically add them to iTunes.

    They just released a new downloader, "Amazon Cloud Player" and I tried to set it to do just that (like I could with the old one). No luck. The preferences are set to Export to iTunes,

    but the CD just downloaded to the Amazon folder and there was no export. I had to drag the files to iTunes myself.
