Problems with consolidating itunes library
If you let i Tunes organize your music for you, all the tracks you add to your library will be copied into A useful function in i Tunes is Consolidate Library, once you've been collecting music for a while, you might find you have files spread over your hard drive, on your desktop, on external hard disks, etc.
This function copies all the files in your library into a single file structure.
My setting is still the same as before it use to be like this: |--| |* | Keep itunes organized |--| |--| | | Copy files to i Tunes music folder when adding to library |--| should I check the second one to?
Everyone knows that i Tunes is a great platform that provides a lot of stuff regarding entertainment and fun.
This will stop i Tunes from creating duplicates of your Audio Files when importing them into i Tunes.
To change the encoding settings, i Tunes Setting: Custom.
These settings would be best for Serato users: Stereo Bit Rate: 320 kbps Besides the encoder and it's settings, the other option which simplifies importing CDs is the second check box: "Automatically retrieve CD track names from internet".
you can prevent this from happening by knowing what files SSL is keeping track of and seeing if those files are in the locations you plan on importing.
if you use i Tunes import in SSL, what i'd suggest doing is turning it off in SSL. if there are still files in SSL, make notes of where these files are are your drive and make sure i Tunes isn't also handling some of those files.
