I transfered Itunes music to a flash card as a back-up. They moved as albums which is wha

Resolved Question:

I transfered Itunes music to a flash card as a back-up. They moved as albums which is what I wanted. When I later tried to transfer some newly added albums, they transfered as single files not as albums. What happened? I want to transfer them as albums. (I am using a Mac)
When I highlight "Music" in Itunes and try to export it it exports as a txt file, and library as an xml. file

iteachmac : Hi to copy a mp3etc from iTunes , just select the track in iTunes library .
iteachmac : Then use right mouse button , on the file in iTunes.
iteachmac : A menu pops up
iteachmac : Choose show in finder
iteachmac : A finder window opens . The files are with it , this is the album folder . You can copy the files from inside to a back up or copy the folder and all to make a backup.
iteachmac : This is how to copy single songs and albums to a backup etc .
iteachmac : Thanks.
Customer :

When I right click on "Music" the default is Music.txt which gets only garbled text sent. But, under "Format" i find these choices: Uncode text (default), XML, M3U, M3U8.

Customer :

When I right click on "Music", I find "exprt", then "Music. txt (Text), but under "Format" are choices: Unicode text (default), XML, M3U, M3U8. What do these mean? Which do I choose?

iteachmac :

Hi , no.... in itunes , in the music library , have the library listed in standard list , pick your song or MP3 etc from within itunes . . .then right click on the song etc to gain the contextual menu , see show in finder or show in finder window from the contextual menu . all will now make sense .

iteachmac :

You can then copy the files to where you wish , as shown in this video :-

iteachmac :

Thanks.

iteachmac :

You can also find you songs or mp3 by hand , in the Finder :-

iteachmac :

Open Mac HD / Users / Your user / Music / itunes / itunes music / Artist folders should be in there .

iteachmac :

Ok thanks.

Customer :

Well, I just got back to following your advice.. I dragged three albums to the flash card, I got the downloading message, etc., but I could not find them on the flashcard. Then instead of scrolling down to look for them, I scrolled up. There they were. Many thanks for solving my problem. I could not find where the mac was storing itunes. Now I get it. Thanks again. Phew!

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
