    Hi

    I recently installed Tiger on an old Powermac G4. It had an old iTunes version on it. I've updated it to iTunes 9 which works. Also installed VLC Player, which works fine as well.

    BUT

    I have an external disc which has lots of music on it. I connected it and when I started adding songs to iTunes, the sound started to come out scrambled. Like listening to a Transformers soundtrack ;)

    When I play the same songs with VLC, same problem! But when I watch a movie with VLC, no problem, beautiful sound.

    So the problem ain't my soundsystem, it ain't my mac output, must be something with the audio or the players.. Am I missing some kind of audio codec (if that even exists)?

    That's weird...

    Did you just add the songs to your iTunes library or did you actually copy them over onto the Mac? Just adding songs to the library doesnt ean you copied them to the Mac. Try copying just a few songs over to the Mac and see of they play right.

    Do you have another computer to try them on? Just trying to narrow this down.

    Hmmm, has to be an issue just with the powermac then... :confused:

    Maybe someone could shed some light on this?
