Hi

 

Could someone walk mw through the process so I can copy tracks from iTunes onto an sd card?

 

Would be much appreciated!

    Insert the SD card into your computer, and then double-click its icon so it looks like an open folder.

     

    Highlight tracks you want in iTunes, and drag to the SD card.  This places a copy of each file onto the SD card, and does change anything in your library.

     

    If you normally run iTunes in full-screen mode, make it smaller so that you can do the drag.

    Many thanks, Ed2345.

     

    I have managed to drag the items into the SD card folder, however, my car stereo only seems to want to play the mp3 files and not the mp4 files from my itunes.

     

    Any suggestions as to how I can change the file type or convert them somehow so the stereo will play them all?

     

    Cheers

    Chibbchi,

     

    In your iTunes library, look at the "Kind" for the files that will not play.  If you do not see a column for Kind, enable it by going to View > View Options.

     

    If the Kind is "AAC audio"or "Purchased AAC," you can convert the file to MP3 by following this guide:  http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1550

     

    If the Kind is "Protected AAC," the file cannot be converted.  Upgrade it to iTunes Plus and then follow the above guide.

    When I open the SD card, it looks more like a file with multiple folders: Android, DCIM, Browser, email, etc. Do I just create a new folder for the music from iTunes?

    Yes, create a new folder for Music.

    I am copying tracks on to an SD card, however when the tracks get on the card they have numbers before them. As an example, Blowing in the wind, Bob Dylan. When it copies to the SD card it now reads 1-14 Blowin in the wind. Where did this 1-14 come from and how do I copy and avoid tis number showing up?

    Thanks

    perhaps you can help me too with getting music onto an sd card in order to play in my car.

    my sd card is usually used in the Kodak camera i inherited.

    it currently has two files--DCIM & Misc.

    When i try to drag mp3 files to this sd card, it says "cannot be modified."

    in Get Info it says the format for this sd card is MS-DOS (FAT16)

    under Sharing & Permissions it says "read only"

    suggestions?
