Can iTunes handle Online music clips?

by swimdanceski13 / November 22, 2005 12:44 PM PST

I downloaded a couple of clips from my school website, and was hoping to put them on my iPod, but - even though they're not illegally downloaded, the school intends for people to listen to them - being in mp3 format, iTunes refuses to take them. Is there something I'm missing? I'm using a Mac, but if someone has windows instructions, that would be helpful as well! Thanks!

If the file you downloaded is an MP3, then you can put it into the iTunes library without a problem.
In iTunes, on a Mac, go to File/Add to Library and navigate to where you downloaded the MP3 file to. Select it and you're done.
Were you getting some form of error message when you tried to add it to iTunes?
What happens when you double clicked the downloaded file.

No error message... just doesn't show up

In reply to: MP3

I'm trying to insert a file into iTunes on a Mac. When I did what you said (which I tried before), there was no error message. The file just never showed up in my library when I typed in the name into the library search, and in the alphabetical list, it's not there either.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
