Click the "Advanced" tab.
Click the "Importing" tab.
Under "Import Using", select "MP3 Encoder"
Under "Setting" select the quality you want.
Click Ok
Insert the audio CD.
Click the audio CD in the Source list under "Devices"
Click "Import"
Hope this helps!

  • Problem importing music from audio CD

    I upgraded to i-tunes & since then cannot import audio CDs. The audio cd is recognised in Devices, I can see all the tracks, I can import the tracks, they appear in the Library but they will not play. Each imported track is shown in the library as being 789.57.13 duration. If I try to play the tracks it jumps to the next track in the Library and plays that.
    I ran the CD diagnostics and the results are pasted below. I would appreciate any help as this is SO frustrating!! Thanks.

    Hi there,

    Trouble adding music to iTunes library or importing audio CD
    -Griff W.

  • I purchased a new computer and want to import music from other computers and sources to my hard drive, how do I import the actual songs and not the links?

    I purchased a new computer. I would like to import all of my music from my other computers and external hard drives. I want to only import the physical songs not "Links". Also not duplicates. How do I do this?

    Under Edit > Preferences > Advanced make sure the Copy... option is ticked. This will ensure any files you drag to the library get copied into your library's media folder.
    If the same content appears at more than one location, or you add it more than once, then iTunes will create dupes. There isn't really any way to avoid that, but I've written a script called DeDuper which can help remove them. See this thread for background.

  • Importing music from Audio CDs to iCloud

    I'm brand new to the world of Apple with an iPad2. One of the things that I'd like to do is to import my music CDs to iTunes. Now I have approx 400 CDs, so I'm thinking that iCloud should be where I store all of this music. The question is: How do I do that?

    Insert the Disc into your computer and iTunes will ask you what you would like to do with it or if it doesn't ask choose add to library from the file menu and choose the disc or select specific tracks to add.

  • With Adobe Premier Elements 13 can I add my own audio tracks by pulling music from my files and by using my UBS microphone?

    With Adobe Premier Elements 13 can I add my own audio tracks by pulling music from my files and by using my USB microphone?

    Please remind us on what computer operating system your Premiere Elements 13 is running
    Using your own music.....
    Yes, with important but.....
    If your music is from iTunes, more than likely you will get some sort of error message from the program when you try to import the iTunes music into Premiere Elements (most versions including 13). In that case, please convert the iTunes music to the wav version in iTunes using the following iTunes instructions.
    iTunes: How to convert a song to a different file format - Apple Support
    If you are getting program error message using Premiere Elements 13 Add Media/Files and Folder with other than iTunes music, please give the source and properties of that music.
    Using USB Microphone....Not recommended by Adobe....See Adobe ReMe
    As for Premiere Elements narration clips using the its Narration Tool
    1. Adobe documentation indicates the USB microphone do not work in Premiere Elements and suggest the use of microphones that connect to the computer via computer jack.
    But, there are some scattered cases where the user has found a USB microphone that has worked for him or her.
    2. Be sure to check Edit Menu/Preferences/Audio Hardware ASIO settings to assure that Input and Output are enabled.
    3. There have been reports (Premiere Elements several versions) where addition of narration using the Narration Tool results in loss of pre-existing
    sound on numbered audio track clips and soundtrack.
    ATR Premiere Elements Troubleshooting: PE12: Audio Losses After Narration Addition
    4. In my particular Premiere Elements 13 on Windows 8.1 64 bit, I have found that I need to set the Mic Sensitivity all the way to the left to avoid
    serious audio distortion.
    I have tried to give you an overview to avoid surprises if you have not used the features that you pointed to in your thread question. Please let me know if you need further information.
    Thank you.

  • ITunes freezes when importing music from CD and also when playing,

    Just recently iTunes has started to freeze when importing music from a CD - it just stops and the progress bar remains as it it. The whole mac then freezes and I get the spinning beachball. I can't use any other application. The same thing is happening when I play music - it's ok for a song or two and then freeze and the beachball appears. I've downloaded iTunes again and reinstalled and it's just the same. Using Safari and Mail etc is no problem at the moment.
    I also have a problem getting the iMac to recognise external hard drives - it won't show them on either firewire 400 or 800. I can see my 1TB drive using usb ( it shows up on the desktop, whereas on firewire it doesn't do this) but if I try to open it and see the contents in finder, it opens, but doesn't dispaly the contents of the drive. I can see the disk size but just get a grey spinning wheel in the bottom right hand of the finder window. Timemachine does not work.

    I have had the same problem & itunes crashes when i try to import a file. Now i can't even start itune. I've reinstalled itunes so many times, without a fix, I've lost count.
    I did post and had no reply. I'll watch this post with interest.

    Could you post your diagnostics for us please?
    In iTunes, go "Help > Run Diagnostics". Uncheck the boxes other than DVD/CD tests, as per the following screenshot:
    ... and click "Next".
    When you get through to the final screen:
    ... click the "Copy to Clipboard" button and paste the diagnostics into a reply here. (Use your Ctrl-V keyboard shortcut to paste.)

  • Updated to and cannot import music from a cd or from a folder.

    Updated to itunes and now cannot import music from a cd or from a folder.  I ran the diagnostics test, and itunes can find the cd, but will not import it.  Itunes will play the cd though.
    Any suggestions?  Is there a bug fix coming?
    Thank you.

    For general advice see Troubleshooting issues with iTunes for Windows updates.
    The steps in the second box are a guide to removing everything related to iTunes and then rebuilding it which is often a good starting point unless the symptoms indicate a more specific approach. Review the other boxes and the list of support documents further down the page in case one of them applies.
    Your library should be unaffected by these steps but there is backup and recovery advice elsewhere in the user tip.
    If the advice above doesn't resolve things you could try this alternate version:
    iTunes for Windows (64-bit - for older video cards) - itunes64setup.exe (2015-01-28)
    which is a 64-bit installer for the 32-bit version of the core application, similar to previous 64-bit releases.
    Or roll back to the previous build:
    iTunes for Windows (32-bit) - iTunesSetup.exe (2014-10-16)
    iTunes for Windows (64-bit) - iTunes64Setup.exe (2014-10-16)
    You may want to install QuickTime also. Links in the user tip.

  • I can't import music from my computer into Itunes

    I've been trying to import music from my computer into Itunes, And it isnt working
    I have the latest version of Itunes
    When I try adding the files by clicking add file in Itunes or by dragging, it does nothing
    I know it means that the file is incompatible with Itunes, But I have put the same type of file into Itunes before with no issues (MP3)

    Hey Haley.1182,
    Thanks for using Apple Support Communities.
    After reviewing your post, it sounds like you are having trouble importing music into iTunes. A frustrating situation for sure. The first article should help get the music imported. The second article shows what formats are compatible with iTunes.

  • Importing music from CD

    I am Running XP and Itunes 5
    I have been busy importing music from my CD collection which because of lack of space has to be stored away. Recently I have found that when inserting a cd in the cd drive Itunes will not recognise that their is a cd there.
    When using other media players they all recognise the cd, I have removed as much as I can in the way of audio software just in case there is a conflict but to no avail.
    This appears to be intermittent but I have not managed to determine or identify any common thread that could lead to the development of the problem.
    I also appear to be unable to import music files that have been previously stored on my PC. When I open the folder/s they appear to be empty yet I know they contain the audio tracks I am looking for. I suspect it is something to do with the format of the stored files which are either MP3 or WAV files.
    Any help would be appreciatted

    You need to be connected to the Internet and also have iTunes unblocked by any of your security programs.
    Also try:
    - Select (highlight) all songs on an Album
    - Advanced=>Get CD Track Namne
    That will attempt to force a query to the CDDB (Gracenote)

  • HT1473 Is there a way to import music from a cd to an iPad?

    Is there a way to import music from a cd to an iPad?

    Not without going through iTunes... Well, strictly speaking there are other tools that can copy audio files into the iPad's memory, but iTunes is the way that is supported, and using iTunes ensures the device can be backed up. Useful should you need to restore the device in the event of a problem, or a replacement in the event of loss, theft, or damage.

  • Cannot import music from cd

    itunes 11.4 (18)  /  Mac os x 10.9.5
    For some reason, itunes has stopped importing music from music cd's. It will recognise the cd, download the track names, but when I go to import the songs, the import process just skips through the tracks, witout actually importing the music. The my iTunes library will then show that music is in there, but the tracks are all between 10-80kb and contain no music.
    wondering if anybody else is having this issue And / or knows how to rectify it?

    Hello Josh,
    So with songs not importing I can think of two troubleshooting options. The first is change the way iTunes imports the songs; either MP3 or AAC format should work. If that still does not work then I would look at the second article for troubleshooting the SuperDrive on your Mac.

    how do i import music from my iPod nano to my mac desk top then export the music to my iPod touch?

    Hey there Antonio7,
    You can transfer your iTunes purchases from your iPod nano to your computer with this article:
    Re-download or transfer your iTunes Store purchases from an iPhone, iPad or iPod to a computer
    Transfer your purchases to your computer
    Before you transfer your purchases, make sure that your computer is authorized with the same Apple IDaccount you used to make the purchases. Learn how to authorize your computer using iTunes.
    If you bought the iTunes Store content on your device using multiple Apple ID accounts, you'll need to authorize the computer for each one.
    To transfer purchases from your device to a computer:
    Connect your device to the computer. Wait for its icon to appear in iTunes.
    Go to File > Devices. If you're using iTunes for Windows and can't see the menu bar, learn how to turn on iTunes menus in Windows.
    Choose Transfer Purchases from [device name].
    ​​This feature works only for content bought from the iTunes Store. Any items that you imported from audio CDs or received from other sources won't copy from your device to the iTunes library. However, all podcasts from your device's Podcasts app and copies of all PDFs and books from your device's iBooks app will transfer to the computer. Learn how to transfer media to your iTunes library.
    Then you can sync the music to your iPod touch in the same way you sync music to any device:
