I looked and the files that were imported into iTunes are in .m4a format.
M4A (file extension. This is an AAC file) is the default format for importing CDs into iTunes.
How do I convert the .m4a files to .mp3 so that I can get them to view in iTunes and ultimately on my iPOD Nano?
You don't need to convert them to mp3 for iTunes to use them. They will work just fine as AAC/MP4.
I've been adding my CDs to my iTunes library. However, most of the albums I've been adding aren't showing up under "music".
Are they showing up in iTunes anywhere?
Katrina S, thank you. That worked well.
Chris, the songs are showing up in iTunes under "Recently Added" +along with every other song/CD that I've added to iTunes.+ But most of the CDs that I've been adding are not showing up as albums in the Music area of iTunes.
I now changed the preferences and tried the right click on a group of songs and have converted them to .mp3. Now the songs for the album are showing up as an album in the "musica" area of iTunes.
Could very well be. I find it a very complicated program and most of the time end up with 2 or even 4 of the same song in the library, and I can't figure out why either.
After I installed iTunes the only thing I had changed was to put a check mark in the box to keep the iTunes folder organized. I had left everything at default install. Now I've changed it to import as .mp3. Those are the only changes that I have made to the iTunes settings.
Now that I have the settings changed to import as .mp3, as soon as I finish importing a CD the album shows up under the Music Library area inside iTunes and I can import the cover art.
Before the album wouldn't show up under the Music Library when iTunes was open, it would only show up under "Recently Installed Playlist".
