I have two quick questions: 1. Why does iTunes(v188.8.131.52) mysteriously delete the album art i put for some CDs i import a few weeks after i have imported them and place long strings of numbers in the 'comments' column? (this has been driving me crazy!!!) and also... 2. Is it possible to encode mp3s with iTunes without having to import it directly from a CD? Any help for either of these would be greatly appreciated... thanks in advance!
