No, that's not what I mean. I don't want it to replace it. Ok, when you create an AAC version of a song.. it usually appears right underneath the original song. But mine doesn't. It doesn't show up. I have to search for it every time. I just want the AAC file to appear underneath the original file.. so I don't have to search for it every time I create an AAC file.
moonknight, When a new file is added to the library, whether by conversion or any other means, it will display in the library like any other file.
If your library is sorted by Date Added, the newest one will be right at the top.
If your library is sorted by Name, it will be next to other songs having the same name, which would include the file from which you converted it.
If by any chance you are referring to the song file itself, as opposed to its iTunes library entry, you will find it in your iTunes Music folder, in a subfolder by Artist containing a subfolder by Album. iTunes puts the converted file there, no matter where the original is located. Is that what you are referring to?
No, ok let me try to go through this step by step. I'll give you the song title and everything.
1. I scroll down to my Playlists and select "Ne-Yo"
2. I choose the song "Beacause of You"
3. I right click and select "Create AAC Version"
4. It Converts
5. After it completes, I don't see it anywhere in that playlist.
6. I have to scroll up to the Music Library
7. Then search for the file there.
I think that's the simplest way to explain it. I hope you know what I mean now. Maybe you can follow my steps and see if you get the same thing.
Yes, that is exactly how it is supposed to work. The newly converted file does get added to your Music library but *does not* get added to the playlist. So, if you want to see it, you need to look in Music.
The playlist will continue to have the original song in it. If you want to replace it by the newly converted track, you can do so manually.
