If I transfer music files from itunes to a flash drive, it works fine but only transfers song name. How can I get it to transfer the band name as well? Thanks.

Don't use WAV files.

You can drag and drop selected tracks or a playlist onto the device.

    Thank you for your prompt response. Can you please elaborate on what you will see and be asked once the Flash Drive is connected to the computer.

    It will not ask you anything.  Just insert the flash drive and double-click its icon so it looks like an open folder.  Then highlight the tracks you want in iTunes and drag them in to the open folder.

    Thank you for your valued help. Please, one more question? It is an 8GB flash drive , if I want to add more music, etc.,  how do you go about openning another folder(s)  and identifying the individual respective folder(s) ? Thank you!

    PE,

     

    Yes, you can add more songs to the flash drive at any time, up to its capacity limit.

     

    It is not necessary to find the song files in the folders on your PC.  You can simply highlight the tracks in iTunes, and drag them to the flash drive.  (If you normally run iTunes in full screen mode, make it smaller so that you can do the drag.)  This procedure puts a copy on the flash drive, and does not change anything in your iTunes library.

    Thank you! Another question, please. Once I have the iTunes playlist on the Flash Drive from my computer, can I then plug the Flash Drive into my Wife's computer (OS Windows XP Pro) and click and drag the playlist into the iTunes program on her computer(Dell Inspiron 1545)?

    Yes. If you want the songs as a "playlist", as opposed to just in the library, then create a new empty playlist before dragging the files onto it.

     

    This will be a randomly ordered collection of files as opposed to inheriting any specific order that may have been present in your other library. Moving an ordered playlist between libraries that don't share a common media folder is a non-trivial problem.

    Yes, but before you do that, go into Edit > Preferences > Advanced on her iTunes, and make sure that the parameter "Copy..." is enabled.  (If you skip this step, her iTunes will only reference the copies on your drive, and once you walk away with your drive she will not have the music.)

     

    As TT2 notes, you can drag the songs into a specific iTunes playlist, or into her Music library in general.

    Thank you! I followed your suggestions and found on my wife's computer I had to enable the "Copy".

    I'm sorry to bother you again, however, I need your valued help. I dragged the tracks to the flash drive and experienced the following:

    First, the songs did not transfer as exactly in the original iTunes song list.Second, they all ended up in Quick Time Player.Third, some songs were just given a track number with no name.Fourth, some are identified as AAC audio, others as WAV.Fifth, I could not click and drag one song because it had an exclamation point in front of it.Please offer some suggestions as to how the songs can be clicked and dragged so that they are exactly as the original version in iTunes.

    Thank you

    Professional,

     

    When you drag tracks to a flash drive, the files are copied exactly as they:  same audio format (AAC, MP3, WAV, etc), the same filename, etc.

     

    If the track has an exclamation point, that means iTunes does not know where the file is, and in that case dragging will not work.
