How can I copy mp3 files from my Itunes library to an SD card for use in a non-apple phone?

How can I copy mp3 files from my Itunes library to an SD card for use in a non-apple phone?  I can physically copy the tunes as mp3's but the phone does not seem to be able to play all of them.   Do I need to copy an entire album or can I just pick & choose individual songs?   The phone is question is an LG running who knows what for an operating system.

AAC is Advanced Audio Coding.  Basically it's a format that sounds better than MP3 but doesn't take up as much space as a lossless format (like you'd have on a CD).  More than likely you've had that encoding turned on when you ripped your music into itunes (it's the default encoder).  Therefore your LG phone won't play them.
You need to turn off the AAC format by going to the iTunes menu, Preferences, General (at the top), then clicking the "Import Preferences" button.  Change the AAC Encoder to MP3 Encoder.  After that you'll have to make MP3 copies of your songs by right clicking them and selecting "Create MP3 Version."  You'll get a copy of the song that should transfer to your SD card and have MP3 encoding.  Hopefully your phone will play that.

  • How can I delete orphan files from my itunes library all at once?

    My itunes library has 0ver 200k files and about 30,000 were on an external drive that crashed leaving me with 30,000 orphan files that I want to delete from the library. Too many to delete one by one, how can I either sort them by this field to select all with shift click or is there a script to delete them?

    I don't think you need Preview.
    Select the image and use File->export and you have full control over the size and compression.

  • How do I copy some music from my itunes library to a MP3 player?

    I have a Sandisk clip sport MP3 player and would like to download files from my iTunes library.  Do I have to use the sync?  If so, how do I enable sync on my Mac?

    Drag the songs from the iTunes library or iTunes Music folder to the device in the Finder. If it doesn't show up there or that doesn't work, check the device's documentation.

  • Can the aTV read files from an iTunes library on my nas drive without my computer being on

    I have my itunes library on a My Book Live nas drive that contains all of my digital movies and TV shows. I want to be able to watch my movies from the library without a computer running. I understand that Apple has chosen to chain you to the computer and your itunes account through Home Sharing but I can not see why they couldn't allow you to access a nas drive without a computer running because your aTV is tied to your itunes account also so why do they force you to run a computer 24/7 365 in order to access the files you have bought and paid for.
    I have a love/hate for Apple because I love the quality of the products they make but I hate how they make all of the digital files you purchase only accessible through a computer running Home Sharing even though the files are not stored on the computer.
    I have tried several things to get this to work without a computer but no luck. The only way I have found to be able to do this is to Jailbreak your aTV and install 3rd party software (which I don't want to do) that will allow you to by pass the computer and Home Sharing (which is dumber than ****) because that is all I want to do is eliminate the need of a computer running wasting electricity (I thought Apple was supposed to be an enviro friendly company, guess not). I am not trying to steal or give someone else my purchased movies and using the aTV and an internet connection they could still be able to tie your media to your itunes account so I just don't get there thinking, or lack of thinking I should say.
    Is their a way to do this without Jailbreaking or modifying your aTV?
    If not is Apple ever going to wake up and allow there customers to actually USE the media they purchase from them without Home Sharing and a computer running?

  • How can I get my music from my Itunes library after I replaced my hard drive?

    How can I get my music from my Itunes library (purchased and downloaded (CD)) after I replaced my hard drive?  Same account name.  My other computer see's old and new music.  Can purchace new songs.  They show up by themselves.  Can connect IPOD and old songs show up.  Seem's like they are defined as different accounts.

    They will only be where you put them.
    It has always been very basic to always maintain a backup copy of your computer.  Use your backup copy to put everything back.

  • I can't copy certain songs from my iTunes library to my iPhone despite repeated attempts

    I can't copy certain songs from my iTunes library to my iPhone despite repeated attempts. These are songs I copied way back when from CDs onto my computer.  I can play them on my computer just fine in iTunes too. Status bar says "Updating files" and "Preparing to Copy" but nothing actually copies to my phone. My phone shows the songs greyed out and circles to the left of the song in the Store column and the songs never get copied onto my phone.
    My guess is that there is something I am missing or something I am doing wrong.
    Any advice/help is appreciated.
    Thanks.

  • Can't Autofill [Transfer] Files From my iTunes Library to my iphone?!

    Hello, there
    I'm facing an issue, recently I can't autofill music files from my music library into my iphone.. and the strange thing is some music files I have managed to autofill
    them to my iphone... I tried to uninstall and install itunes again no use.. I have the latest version
    when I do autofill a song to my iphone there is a circle next to the title of the song in the playlist of my iphone in itunes and I can't play it
    I tried in the music library in itunes to make an AAC version of the mp3 song then autofill it and it worked some times
    here is a pic of the problem...
    anybody has a clue?

    AAC is Advanced Audio Coding.  Basically it's a format that sounds better than MP3 but doesn't take up as much space as a lossless format (like you'd have on a CD).  More than likely you've had that encoding turned on when you ripped your music into itunes (it's the default encoder).  Therefore your LG phone won't play them.

  • Can I copy mp3 files from my PC to my iPhone4?

    I have an extensive music collection that I've already digitized from vinyl and reel to reel tape. I have a file structure on my pc and don't really want to use iTunes as a player or download app; and I'm don't want to have iTunes on my pc re-organize my music collection. Any advice on how to copy mp3 files to my iPhone 4 will be greatly appreciated.

    The iTunes Music folder is on your PC. It's where iTunes will download things from the iTunes Store, and where it will by default store music you rip from CD or import. That's why you turn off that setting I gave above when you want your track files to be kept where they are.
    Can I attach my iPhone via USB cable to my PC and simply choose which music files to copy, and if so is there already a file structure on my iPhone?
    No. Tracks need to be listed in iTunes to be able to be synched to your iPhone.
    Regards.

  • How can I copy a file from adobe reader to my contacts

    How can I copy a list of names and addresses from Adobe Reader to my contacts

    you can buy imovie or other 3th party apps to edit videos
    they will then let you import the movies to iphoto if you have osx
    and access the files from my computer where the ipad show up as a camera in windows
    you can't access the ios devices filesystem directly and they can't access something like an external harddisk themselvs
