    Okay I know this is in the wrong section I don't know where else to put this so I am putting it here.

    Okay so i updated to iTunes 10.5 and now all the audio I have downloaded on the internet is all "scrachy" and "unlistanable" Kinda hard to explain the sound but yea.. I tried everything from rebooting my computer, reinstalling iTunes, etc... but still no luck. But the thing is the songs I have purchased play fine :confused:

    Anyone got any fixes on this problem?
    Maybe I will just call Apple tomorrow.

    "All the audio I have downloaded on the internet"? Do you mean podcasts? What internet source? Since updating, I put a few podcasts onto my 4g iTouch, but then could do so no longer. Something about the files being unreadable or untransferable.

    Let's see, the content you paid for works. That MUST be an iTunes problem.

    Rip it from your own CD and buy the stuff you like (instead of stealing).

    Funny, but I'm pretty sure pirated content benifits Apple more than it doesn't. I mean, how much does it cost to fill an iPod legally? $5000? $10000?

    Of course, it could be legal, creative commons licensed songs too.

    But I updated iTunes on my other computer which is a Windows 7 and the audio works fine on that.

    So its only stuff you downloaded on internet and not your own ripped cds?I have 8 GS of my own ripped cds in my Mac and will soon be putting it on mobile device.Hopefully the Itunes update will not ruin my ripped cd sound.I get it that Apple wants us to buy from Itunes but to ruin the sound on our own ripped cds is just not acceptable.

    Okay so apparently only MP4 files work now not MP3 files. Weird.

    I have the same problem. Songs from the store work perfectly fine but songs that aren't are horrible.

    ----------

    Songs work fine on a different media player, but no other media player syncs to iOS devices.

    Just because iTunes doesn't play the files properly doesn't mean iTunes damaged the files.

    Wow there is a real need of the proper information here. From what I am reading you are trying to open a codex iTunes will not play. iTunes will play MP3 but there is at least 5 flavors I can think of. The one iTunes will play is MP3 Lame. What you need to do is convert your MP3 music tracks to this format. To all of you with PC's the converter I have used for many, many years is dBpoweramp Music Converter http://www.dbpoweramp.com/dmc.htm
    This converter will convert any codex to any other codex. The Batch converter will take huge files, even whole HDD's and convert them very quickly because it takes advantage of multi core CPU's using each core processor to convert a file, so it will do 2 at once, 4 at once etc.

    Music Problem

    I had a problem playing music after the iOS5 update. Nothing played.

    Windows XP Pro with ipod touch 4 iOS 5 and itunes 10.5.0.142.
    The way I fixed it.

    1. backup all in the itunes directory in case you screw up.
    2. Hope you did step 1. Delete all music from itunes.
    3. Restart itunes and resync until music is removed from your ipod.
    4. Drag drop all music back into itunes then resync to apply to ipod.

    I'm just say what worked for me. Need more people to test on other devices and platforms for more feedback.

    Just make sure you back up your stuff before attempting.
