In converting some of my CD's, I had one song with clicks and pops at the end. Of course, it is also present in iTunes. Here is what I did (probably the long way.)<br>First I dragged it out of the shared folder and onto the desktop.<br>Next, I opened it with Quicktime Player. <br>I then did a cut and did a Save As.<br>Here is where I am stuck. I can't seem to convert back to MP3. Did I miss something?<br>Thanks for any help.<br><br>
I don't know what I am doing wrong, but it won't do it.<br>I get the "cut" version and put it on the desktop. I then opened iTunes and did the "Add to Labrary" thing and it did the full version. <br>I think I will have to put up with the pops at the end unless the editing can get a little easier. (I know, I am making it hard for a simple task)<br><br>
In the hundreds of CDs I've transfered to my computer, I found this only twice... One was an 2 CD Collection of Elvis music & I can't recall the 2nd artist...<br><br>When importing/ripping Elvis from my iMac G3 400...it would give me the pops & such. However, when ripping it from my iMac G4 or Powerbook G4 17"...the pops were gone..<br><br>I just assumed it was the older drive technology.. I've had a few other problems w/ the iMac G3 400, like spitting out CDs and not taking them at all...that's happened several times out of hundreds of CDs.<br><br>
It is definitly on the CD. It is pops and shows up on my home stereo as well.<br>I just thought I could edit it out with a little snip in Quicktime Pro. I was able to do it, but somehow not able to get it back into a mp3 file to put back into my iTunes.<br>The option isn't there when I do a "Open With" option either.<br><br><br>
when you do "Add to " with iTunes, where are you directing iTunes to get the file? from the desktop or the iTunes folder? What did you do with the original file? If you don't need it, throw it away so that way you can find the file right away.<br><br><br>My stuff for sale
An easier way to do it would be to select the offending song in iTunes, Get Info on it, click the Options tab, and change the stop time of the song. iTunes will stop playing the song at the time you specify instead of the actual ending point. <br><br>edit: I originally wrote the following but it isn't correct:<br><br>"That would be enough but if you want more, select the song again, choose the Advanced menu, and Convert Selection to MP3/AAC. This will make a new MP3/AAC of the song that stops at the time specified."<br><br>This actually makes a second MP3/AAC that begins at your stopping point and ends at the real end. In other words, for example, you could split a 4 minute song into two MP3s - one with the first 1:30 minutes, the second with the last 2:30 minutes.<P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by JThree on 07/20/03 09:33 PM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>
