    Hi friends

    I have recently purchased ipod touch, I need info on the following as I could not get from online manual and even details displayed in "help" on the itunes is not woking some how:

    1. Creating folders - i created folders under playlist and wanted to drag files from the music library to the pointed folders as directed by "help", it is not working.

    2. There is just one option in itunes (drop down menu) to convert audio file type to AAC, where can I convert into mp3?

    3. Videos - Using "advanced" drop down menu, I converted a DAT video file into ipod compatible form, it worked but there is no more audio in there.

    4. In the itunes library, where can I place photos as there is no folder.

    Thank you so much, I appreciate your assistance.

    1. I don't understand what you mean.

    2. iTunes only converts it so it's compatible with your device. So it won't convert it into anything else. Basically, you should find another seperate program for comverting files.

    3. I also suggest another convertor.

    4. You don't put photos in your library. You can sync them to your device by clicking on the device in iTunes then clicking on the Photos tab. The rest should be easy.




    ALSO, welcome to the site!

    Welcome to iPodTouchFans. Atl answered your questions above, just wanted to add on to #2.

    2. iTunes songs are DRM protected; and they don't want you converting them into .mp3 files because you can then use them on any MP3 player; and share your music easily. MP3 is the most common file extension for songs, so they want to keep them in iPod format only. But, if you use a program such as SoundTaxi, you can "strip the DRM" and convert them to .mp3 format. But, I shouldn't be discussing this here, so I'll leave it at that.

    I just realized you said "Hi friends" and thought that was pretty funny.
