LPs to CDs via a computer

by jwubbleyew / September 17, 2009 4:17 PM PDT

I recently bought a Digitech Model GE-4059 turntable player with USB port and find the accompanying instruction manual is of little help in commissioning the unit. I "save as" an iTunes project but cannot find the recorded music in my iTunes library.

When I click on "Recent Files" in Audacity, the file name I nominated ending in iTunes appears and I can play the track. I need to get technical help from someone who is conversant with the technology and understands why I'm stuck.

Regards,

John Whelan

Have you tried . . .

Open iTunes. Click File, Add File to Library, then navigate to where your new music file is located. Then add/import.

LPs to CDs

Thanks very much for the two replies, one from Corphaeus and the other from lacsr. I clicked on "Add files to library" but couldn't and still can't locate 'add/import'? However I went into iTunes and clicked on 'Recently Added" and there was my file which I was able to play and hopefully burn to a CD or copy to my iPod.

There is one other question if I may. Can the names of individual songs be inserted so that they appear on my iPod as they do when you copy a CD to an iPod?

Many thanks for your help.

While in "Recent Files"

Make a note of the path for the file. It probably needs to be moved from the place it is and put in your iTunes folder. Either that or the file does not meet iTunes definition for file types and needs to be modified. If Audacity is actually putting the file in the iTunes folder, then try having iTunes look at "All Files" to see if it there.
