    I have these loops that were in .wav format. I put them in the Apple loops folder with all the other loops that GarageBand has. They didn't show up in i converted them to aiff with iTunes....still didn't work. So I converted them to MP3....still didn't work. all the real loops in the folder are in .aif format, but the pic shows a quicktime image and says "aifc". So how to I get all my loops to this right format. Or am i just doing something wrong with the other formats?

    Garageband is compatible with the Apple loop format and Sony's Acid loop format.

    You install loops by opening Garageband and dragging the loop (or folder of loops) onto the loop browser window of Garageband. Garageband will then add the loops to your library. I'm not sure what type of loops you are trying to install, but if it's a standard .wav sound file (not a loop) you can drag and drop them into Garageband's timeline where they will appear as any other real instrument track. Once you've done that you can then convert it into a bonafide Apple loop if it works as a repeatable loop. Just go to the edit menu and select "add to loop library" fill in the loop info and click create.
