    Hi. I have a question with iTunes. Is there a way to just export the music files, without the artist and album?

    My PSP only recognizes songs that are /Music/Artist/(mp3 files). However, if i copy from the iTunes library, it would be /Music/Artist/Album/(mp3 files).

    Could you just copy the music files?

    *Please see post #7*

    if you want to just get the files out of the library the easiest method i would think would be to just drag them out of itunes to where ever you want them to go, and it'll just create a new copy there. at least thats what i do rather than dig around in the hierarchy for files. not that i have a PSP or know if this is what you're looking for, but i hope it helps.

    no problem. you can select multiple ones that aren't side by side by clicking on them while holding the command/apple key too. :)

    iphoto can make slideshows without a problem. if you want more advanced than what iphoto offers (not sure what the options are as i haven't played with them) i think there are apps out there just for that. i haven't tried, but if you look at macupdate or version tracker you might find something. oh and frontrow might work too.

    I never actually noticed the play button! Stupid me.Haha.

    Was just wondering, apart form rebuilding the LaunchServices Database in Terminal, does TechTool which came with AppleCare do the job? Or does Onyx do the job? Or could you recommend one?

    I don't really like to mess with Terminal. Hahas.

    no idea on this one. new thread might help to find someone who does know. or rename this thread title and include the question in the first post. so people find it and answer it. good luck.
