In order to get record labels on board with the i Tunes Music Store, Apple agreed to develop and implement Fair Play, a proprietary system for controlling access to downloaded content.
i Tunes itself set restrictions on burning CDs and connecting to shared music libraries.
To do this, open i Tunes, connect your device, and click on your device icon.
You'll see a list of tabs for your device's media under Settings on the left(1).
You will also need the following: from i Tunes over to an external hard drive, you should first consolidate your library.
Even if you think your library has all your information consolidated already, it can't hurt to do a manual check before moving any data.
Before we delve into the steps of actually moving your media content, it’s important to explain in some detail exactly how i Tunes handles the management of your media files under the hood, what your options are for relocating these files, and the various pitfalls that you might encounter in this process.
This will effectively merge content of all your devices in a single i Tunes library. Use i Tunes to re-sync your devices which will re-load your content back on to them, and let you add any new purchased or downloaded content to your your i Pods.
My i Tunes Library has folders full of playlists for family, friends, and others along with mixtapes both natively digital and those I’ve reconstructed from actual cassettes.
Today I deleted my entire i Tunes library: music, playlists and all. The only real argument I’ve ever had with i Tunes is DRM.
I do radio shows, sporting events, parties, parades, and yes, weddings.
I’ve saved my playlist from every gig I’ve ever had.
