ICloud: Will it work with non-iTunes music, converted MP3 files and manually organized library folder?

I have a small question about the new iCloud that was introduced.
I listen to music both on my notebook and on my desktop PC. At the moment I use an external hard drive that I keep with me so my music library exists on both computers. If I'm correct the new iCloud means I no longer need the external hard drive.
But,
Not all my music was purchased through iTunes. Some things are converted from CD's I bought and the CD is different from the iTunes version. (More songs, other songs,...) What happens with the songs that are different, or music that does not exist (I have a QOTSA CD which is not available outside the US iTunes store, or several LE bonus discs)?
Some local artists are not on the iTunes store. Is it possible to sync those to?
And the most important one, I also listen to my music in my car. It has support for an SD-card but no USB support so I can't hook my iPod. It only accepts MP3 files and it needs correctly filled in ID3 tags to show up nicely. I convert all my music with iTunes to MP3, but I use MusicBrainz to tag my music because I found that the iTunes ID3 tags will not be correctly picked up. I'm quite happy with this approach as it also means that I can organize my music library to my liking instead of the "let's throw all artists in one folder" approach iTunes uses. Is it possible to use the iCloud with my MP3 converted and tagged versions of my Music?
Thanks.

You can only sync to one iTunes library/computer. If you do sync the iPod is erases and its contents replaced with what is in the iTunes library of the second computer.
To avoid that see:
Syncing to a "New" Computer or replacing a "crashed" Hard Drive: Apple Support Communities
Yes, the 1G works with the latest iTunes.
To transfer iTunes purchases:
iTunes Store: Transferring purchases from your iOS device or iPod to a computer
In iTunes 11 use Control+B to show the Menu bar then go to iTunes>File>Devices>Transfer Purchases

  • I bought the Keynote app for my MacBook, but when I open the application and try to install it, I get an error message saying that the application will not work with my MacBook. What gives? And, can I please request a refund? ($19.99 = a week's groceries)

    I bought the Keynote app for my MacBook, but when I open the application and try to install it, I get an error message saying that the application will not work with my MacBook. What gives? And, can I please request a refund? ($19.99 = a week's groceries).
    Thank you for your help! - I did try looking for all available specs about Keynote on the Apple iTunes website, and found nothing that could help me. HELP!

    1
    Close all iWork applications
    2
    Uninstall Keynote; this must be done with an application remover tool to delete the installation properly. Appcleaner is known to work correctly for this purpose, it is free and can be downloaded from here: Appcleaner Download
    3
    empty the trash
    4
    shutdown the Mac and restart. After the start up chime, hold down the shift key until the apple logo appears
    let the Mac complete the start up procedure completely, it will take longer than usual as the hard drive is being repaired
    5
    Reinstall Keynote by logging into the Mac App Store using download / install

  • Restoring from iCloud backup - what happens to non-iTunes music?

    iPhone4, iOS5 and want to restore from an iCloud backup.  Wondering what happens when music not purchased on iTunes (95% of my collection), when I restore from that backup?  I'm thinking it will all be gone and I will have to go through the painful process of re-selecting all artists\songs I want on the phone in addition to re-creating my playlists.
    Can anyone confirm what happens in this scenario?
    Thanks!

    Help??

    Hello nanowillnotwork
    Check out the article below and pick one of them that relates to your issue. What you need to find out is that does the computer as a whole recognize your iPod nano or is it just iTunes.

  • Can cisco MSE(mobility service engine) configured to work with non-cisco access points?

    I understand that access points can be configured to forwards all the probe requests to cisco wifi controller. cisco MSE(mobility service engine) gets the probes from wifi controller to find the location of the mobile devices.
    My question, can cisco MSE(mobility service engine) be configured to work with non-cisco access points?

    No and the reason why is the NMSP communication from the MSE to the WLC. Other vendors don't support this so there is no communication happening.

  • Export Itunes music to MP3

    Is it possible to export Itunes music to MP3 files? If so, what is the process to do this from Itunes. Thanks.
    Mufutau

    I thought that was for importing?
    It's not just for importing. The import setting controls the format available for the convert option. Once converted, move the MP3 files as needed; their location can be found by right-clicking them.

  • How do I convert my music to an mp3 file and then email it?

    Hi!
    Can someone tell me how to convert my music I loaded on itunes to an mp3 file, and then how to email this file,
    so someone can open it and hear it, e tc?
    thanks!

    Set the iTunes Import preference to MP3, select the track, and then choose the Convert menu command. Then attach it to the email using whatever method or command your email application uses.
    Note that it will be illegal to send this track to someone else unless they already have purchased a copy or it's a track that you composed and performed yourself.

  • My wife and I have separate Ids but all our music is in one library. How will this work with iCloud?

    My wife and I have separate Ids but all our music is in one library. How will this work with iCloud? i'm trying to download past purchases from her id, but itunes is saying that I can't because the computer is associated with my apple id. Can I associate the computer with both ids for the purpose of identifying all of our music with both or just one of our ids? Is there a good way to do this? I'm sure we're not the only people with this problem...

    You cannot merge two separate libraries across user accounts. Photos does not have the function of merging different Photos.library files. If you have Aperture then you can merge the two before migrating over to Photos.

    No, your Yahoo account is not in iCloud (which only handles iCloud mail), it is in Yahoo, and the Yahoo mail account is on your iPad.
    But the MacBook Pro will have none of it! I write this question now as I fear that I will be totally demented very soon and unable to formulate my thoughts clearly!
    Get the correct settings for your account from Yahoo and set it up manually.
    By the way, I also find the "password" issue problematical. It seems Apple want my Apple password rather than my eMail password. All very confusing.
    That would depend on what you are trying to do.

  • My work computer runs Outlook 2003, which I know will not work with the iCloud, so I hard sync.  But then the new info on my iPhone does not backup to iCloud.  Is there a solution?

    I have a Macbook and iPhone and like to back up to iCloud.  However, my work computer runs Outlook 2003, which I know will not work with the iCloud.  The company has no plans to update anytime soon.  Since the calendar and contact list on my office computer are my primay ones, I hard sync through iTunes.  The problem is that any data synced from Outlook 2003 to the iPhone from iTunes does NOT later backup to iCloud.  Is there a solution?

    I have the same problem with Outlook 2003 and Win XP which the multinational organisation I work for standardises on and will probably stay with forever!

  • ITunes will not work with my computer.  iMac G3 processor, OS 10.4.11

    Original message posted about a week ago - I have an iMac, OS is 10.4.11. I just updated my Quicktime software to 7.5, I also updated my iTunes to 8.2.1 (I think, it is definitely higher than 8.0). When I would open up iTunes. I would get this message. (We could not complete your iTunes Store request. The iTunes Store is temporarily unavailable. Please try again later). This was happening before I did the current downloads. I had no trouble about 3-4 weeks ago. I was able to get into the iTunes store and download song. I am pretty annoyed to say the least. Apple makes it so difficult to get information, unless you do endless searches. Trying to contact customer service is a whole other nightmare. They offer this software for free, yet they want you to pay for everything. As you can imagine, I am not happy and venting is helping. So I am hoping there are some other people out there with similar problems who can help. Nothing has been changed or altered on my computer. I have no problem connecting to the internet. No passwords or ID's have been changed. As mentioned I updated my software to the highest, most current software available that my operating system can handle. So if anyone out there knows what is going on, or can help. Please advise. Thanks, from a very frustrated apple user! You can email me direct too <[email protected]>
    Updated message 12/9/10 - I updated my iTunes version to 9.2.1. Now my iTunes will not open. When I do try to open it, It says that this program will only work with G4, and G5 processors. I don't know what to do. I can't afford a new computer right now. Any suggestions???? PLEASE HELP!!I am so frustrated!!! Thanks for your help.

    OK - to answer my own question, Apple recommend 8.2.1, but you can install 9.1.1 and it will run on a G3. Very slowly. Looks like this is the only option. Get it here: http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1036. You need OSX 10.4.11 or later though....
