Ok, nothing really to get worked up about in the Jobs call- nice to see tracks will remain at .99 though...<br><br>Something bothering me, though, about iTMS- where the heck did they put the 'New releases' and 'Just added' buttons?<br><br>[color:red]You slap my back, I'll slap yours!</font color=red>
"-The 'iMix' feature looks neat- Fun way to share playlists (of course they have to be iTMS-purchased songs only)...wish I could test it here, but no iTMS purchased songs on my machine as of yet. I gave Steve Job's playlist 2 stars. I'm no suck up."<br><br>No, they only have to be available for purchase on iTMS. Make a playlist with whatever you want, and it will edit it down to songs that iTMS carries.<br><br>"-One free download from the iTMS in honor of the anniversary. How big of them, a song I already own."<br><br>Actually, I believe it is one free track every day for a wwek, and then one free track per week after that. Nice of them.<br><br>"-Don't see the options for printing CD inserts- hmmmm...."<br><br>File > Print
I guess I am disappointed. First of all, iPod doesn't connect to iTunes any more except to start it. When I get to the usual update/restore options, it doesn't see the iPod. I have run Disk Warrior and attempted to upgrade my Quicktime Pro. <br>The system is fine, the connections are direct (not daisy-chained,) the iPod image is sitting on the desktop as another hard drive.<br>Anybody have the same issue? I really don't want to start from scratch and wipe the iPod. It has much more music than the computer.<br>EDIT: I didn't mean to hijack the thread.

Did you run the iPod update released today as well? I believe you need to do that to make your iPod compatible with the new version of iTunes ...<br><br>=)<br><br>***matt<br><br>Turn up the signal, wipe out the noise ...

I had the same problem after upgrading the iPod software, iTunes 4.5, and QT. iTunes couldn't see the iPod at all. Even though my iPod displayed the Do Not Disconnect, as though it were updating, it sat like that for over ten minutes so I knew something was wrong.<br><br>iTunes didn't recognize the iPod and it never showed up on the desktop. <br>I futzed around with the preferences, dumped plist files and still no iPod.<br>I launched iSync and the iPod mounted. iSync could see the iPod!<br>iTunes eventually locked up the computer!<br>After restart and I relaunced iTunes my iPod showed up in the Playlist window and it now has an eject button, which now when I press it, my iPod ejects from iTunes and the Do Not Disconnect finally disappears after a second. Whew!<br><br>All of this transpired over the course of a half-hour. I can't tell you what I did and nothing I did makes any sense. What I do know is that my iPod is finally back and functioning properly.<br><br><br><br><br>[color:blue] “Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel,” Samuel Johnson</font color=blue>

<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>- Subtle little feature that some people might miss- little arrow graphic next to certain songs in my library, and when I click on the arrow iTMS does a search on that song in the store. Will certainly prove useful when I'm looking to replace some of my pirated MP3's later on, instead of having to manually type them into the search field.<p><hr></blockquote><p><br><br><br>In the meantime, until you are ready to purchase, you can turn this feature off in the preferences for iTunes under "show links to music store".<br><br><br><br><br>[color:blue] “Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel,” Samuel Johnson</font color=blue>

"In the meantime, until you are ready to purchase, you can turn this feature off in the preferences for iTunes under "show links to music store"."<br><br>Damn straight. I also removed the Party Shuffle crap.<br><br>Still no graphite variant for iTunes.<br><br>
'Nother neat feature I found- I can keep the tunes I want to eventually buy in my cart, and then buy them one song at a time from there...<br><br>Previously, I would have to buy everything in the cart, or remove anything I didn't want to buy at the moment...<br><br>[color:red]You slap my back, I'll slap yours!</font color=red>
