How can I copy my music files to my iPAD. The CDs are currently stored in folders on my PC. Note: Synching via iCLOUD won't work because I have VISTA OS and I need at least Windows 7 or 8.

Hi ladextr,
Thanks for using Apple Support Communities.  To sync your music to your iPad, first put your music in iTunes as described here:
Adding music and other content to iTunes
http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1473
Adding content on your computer to iTunes
iTunes helps you add digital audio and video files on your computer directly to your iTunes library. You can add audio files that are in AAC, MP3, WAV, AIFF, Apple Lossless, or Audible.com (.aa) format. If you have unprotected WMA content, iTunes for Windows can convert these files to one of these formats. You can also add video content in QuickTime or MPEG-4 format to iTunes. To learn how to add these files to iTunes follow the steps below.
Open iTunes
From the File menu, choose one of the following choices:
MacAdd to Library
Windows
Add File to Library
Add Folder to Library
Navigate to and select the file or folder that you want to add
If iTunes is set to "Copy files to the iTunes Music folder when adding to library," iTunes will copy all content that is added to the iTunes library to the iTunes Music folder. To adjust this setting or change the location of this folder, go to the Advanced tab in iTunes Preferences.
Once that's done, you can sync the music to your iPad by following this article:
iTunes 11 for Windows: Set up syncing for iPod, iPhone, or iPad

  • How can i copy specific music files to an external hard drive?

    I'm trying to copy selected artists from my itunes music library to an external hard drive.  I don't want to relocate any of my files to the external hard drive for regular use with itunes, I simply want to back up my files.

    Open Finder. Go to Music>iTunes>iTunes Music. The folders are organised by artists. You can copy and paste them to your external hard drive.

    I wonder if we haven't misunderstood what you were asking for. Could it be that you have not a huge file, but just a huge list of names in many small files. If that's the case, you should rather use the following script instead of the previous one.
    Since this script does not rename the files, make a backup of your files before running it.
    set theFolder to choose folder -- the folder containing your text files
    tell application "Finder"
        set theNames to name of files of theFolder whose name extension is "txt"
    end tell
    set theTextFiles to {}
    set theFolderPath to POSIX path of theFolder
    repeat with thisName in theNames
        copy theFolderPath & thisName to the end of theTextFiles
    end repeat
    repeat with thisFile in theTextFiles
        set F1 to open for access thisFile
        set theText to read F1
        close access F1
        set theParagraphs to paragraphs of theText
        set bigList to (a reference to theParagraphs)
        set theNewParagraphs to {}
        set bigNewList to (a reference to theNewParagraphs)
        repeat with X in bigList
            set P to offset of " - " in X
            if P = 0 then
                set Y to X
            else
                set Y to text (P + 3) through -1 of X & " - " & text 1 through (P - 1) of X
            end if
            copy Y & return to the end of bigNewList
        end repeat
        set theNewText to text 1 through -2 of (bigNewList as text)
        set F2 to open for access thisFile with write permission
        set eof F2 to 0
        write theNewText to F2
        close access F2
    end repeat

  • How can I copy or move files with elements 10 organizer ?

    Hello,
    since a couple of days I use Elements10 Organizer under Windows 7 Home.  Since then Im testing how to come along with the product and it's features. Though I had many good impressions of many functions that work excellent I now have severe problems  to organize my workflow. The problem is: I can*t copy or move files or directories with the organizer and worse, I can't find files or directories that where copied, moved or renamed by Windows 7 Explorer even when I import or load the specified directory into the elements10  catalogue again. Off course I understand the elements 10 philosophy to have an image only one time within the data base and to arrange every collecting idea by tags and catagiories. Nevertheless there is a need to have sometimes a copy and also to know where the copy is and to manage it. Right now I find no way to handle these tasks by elements 10 organizer. I am a newbe on photoshop elements.
    I would appreciate if there is anybody who knows a solution to me. Thanks and bye, Woenni

    I am also having this same exact problem. Only some, and not all of the files on my external hard drive will copy. I get the "No Symbol" when trying to copy or move files.
    I am able to duplicate all files. I also can right click on a file and select copy. However on some files, I can't ever paste it (paste doesn't show up or is grayed out), drag it to another folder, or drag-and-copy it to another location or drive.
    The files are not locked and I have read and write permissions.
    The external that I'm trying to move and copy files from is a FAT32. Could that be a problem? How do I get my files off of this drive?
    *PLEEEEASE HELP!*

  • My wife and I share a computer for our itunes accounts. How can we copy our music libraries to each others accounts without erasing the original library? We want to merge our songs.

    My wife and I share a computer for our itunes accounts. How can we copy our music libraries to each others accounts without erasing the original library? We want to merge our songs.

    If the music is on the same computer, import the songs to your iTunes library by dragging them into iTunes or choosing File > Add to Library (Mac) or File > Add File to Library or Add Folder to Library (Windows).  If the music is on different computers you can set up Home Sharing to copy the music from one library to the other (see http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3819 and http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4620).

  • How can I store my music files on an external hard drive and listen to them through iTunes that way?

    How can I store my music files on an external hard drive and listen to them through iTunes that way? At the moment they're both on the external hard drive and also stored on the computer but I'm quickly running out of memory on my iBook G4 so I'd like to only keep them on the external hard drive and, if possible, delete them from my computer's hard drive. At the moment, when the hard drive isn't plugged in a lot of the files won't play and I get the exclamation mark next to the particular song in iTunes, but everything plays fine when the hard drive is plugged in.
    Thank you.

    Sounds like your files are playing from the external drive already.  To check go to iTunes - Preferences - Advanced and check the Media Folder Location.  Change it to the external drive if you need to.

  • How can I copy ITunes music to Photoshop Elements11 slideshow?

    How can I copy ITunes music to Photoshop Elements11 slideshow?

    Plumgirl,
    Use the PowerPoint command Insert > Audio > Audio from file, and navigate to where the audio file is located.
    If you don't know where the file is located, right-click the track in iTunes and choose Show in Windows Explorer.
    Make sure the song you want to use is in MP3 format.  If it is in something else, make an MP3 version, per this document:

  • I have a new computer. How can I save my music from my IPod to the new computer since it isn't in my Library. I don't want to sync and lose music.

    My old computer crashed and I have a new computer. How can I save my music from my IPod to the new computer since it isn't in my Library. I don't want to sync and lose music.

    Then you will need to search for a 3rd party program to transfer content
    Pasted from another thread
    https://discussions.apple.com/thread/2234756?start=0&tstart=0
    One of the most recommended is Yamipod. This is a free program that transfers music from iPod back to the computer. However, it does not transfer playcounts/ratings etc.
    Other free programs are Pod Player, SharePod and Floola and iDump andiPodRobot.
    If you want to recover just the structure of playlists from the iPod (and not the actual song files themselves), there's iRepo for Windows. which I understand has this feature along with all the standard features for these programs.
    iPodRip also has the feature enabling you to reconstruct playlists.
    There is also CopyTrans. This does preserve ratings/playcounts etc if those are important to you but this program is not free. It also supports video transfer.
    More information is contained here.

  • How can I view a PDF file on my IPad? I only get the first page.

    How can I view a PDF file from my Ipad, both in email and Internet links? I only get the first page.

    Support for viewing PDFs in emails and web-pages is built in to the iPad. You need not have bought an app for that.
    There are PDF apps that provide more features than the built-in functionality, but for basic viewing of multi-page PDFs no app is required.

  • How can i transfer my music files from iPad 2 to MacBook Pro?

    hello,
    I got my mp3 files from PC and transfer to iPad 2. it works good.
    And I want to transfer this mp3 files from iPad to MacBook Pro.
    I don't know how to do it and it seems like I should 'buy some tranfer program from other website'.
    Should it word that way? or iTunes program can't deal this issue?
    I have changed some music file information (such as Album, Artist, etc) of mp3 files in iPad from iTune in MacBook. Of course, the iPad was connected to the MacBook. However after I disconnected the iPad from the Mac, those changes were not shown in the iPad (edited album name, artist name...). When I connect the iPad to the Mac again, I can see the changes in iTune in the Mac.
    Another issue.
    Does Anybody know how to set calendar from Japanese calendar to Gregorian calendar in iPad 2? When I setup the iPad first time, I might choose wrong calendar but I can't change/see the calendar option from iPad settings...
    I have been used PC for 20 years but to transfer myself to Apple, it's not easy....
    Issue 1 - music file transfer from iPad 2 to MacBook Pro
    Issue 2 - music file info udate in iPad 2 through MacBook and it doen's implied after disconnected.
    Issue 3 - Change calendar from Japanese to Gregorian in iPad 2
    Please advise,
    Have a great day!!

    A free app that can deal with music files is Songbird.
    There are two paid apps that can transfer just about any type of file; TouchCopy and PhoneView

  • How can I get EVERY music file on my iPod onto my new Mac, not just the songs purchased off of the iTunes store?

    So I've got an iPod classic with songs on it from the iTunes store, from CDs of my own, from free online playlists, etc. and when I plug it into my new Mac laptop the only songs that show up on iTunes are the ones I actually purchased in the iTunes store with my old computer (not a Mac). How can I copy ALL the music on my iPod onto my new Mac?
