Brief Notes on Importing CDs in the New iTunes

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year!

It's just my luck that I wrote my lessons for December before the new iTunes was released. This version is dramatically from the last release, and it's been a real bear getting things done.

You might feel the same way, having gone to the trouble of learning iTunes. Generally speaking, the new iTunes feel like it was meant to be easier, particularly for Old People. When you open the program for the first time, take a moment to use Apple's tutorial. (It will be awhile before I post again.)

Here is the biggest change I noticed, which will help you: The library and devices are at the top left and right of the program. I received two CDs in my Christmas stocking, and set about importing the music to my library.

The CD appeared in the program when I put it in the computer. If you want to import your music, click IMPORT CD at the top right of the screen. You'll see the title of the album in the TOP LEFT. If you click the title, you'll be able to access your library.

That's all I have for now; hopefully a Young Person is nearby to field questions. That's what they're here for, right?

For le record, I hate the new iTunes. I probably won't hate it when it becomes the old iTunes and there's a new iTunes for me to hate, but this version is the proud recipient of my vitriol for now.
