I Need An ITunes Replacement For Windows XP

by tombauman / July 14, 2011 3:20 AM PDT

I have an IPOD Classic and use ITunes to sync on my Windows XP PC.

When I copy my files from the C:/ location to ITunes I lose the filenames which I have meticulously created.

I need to get a program that links to and monitors select locations on my hard drive.

I've tried several but they don't recognize the M4B format for my extensive collection of audiobooks.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Wouldn't this question be better asked

in the XP section.

You are not likely to get a recommendation for a piece of Windows software (other than iTunes) in a Mac forum.

just as a matter of interest, why not meticulously create those file names after you have copied them into iTunes?

I can only guess you unchecked any feature iTunes has to move and rename files?
