I thought itunes was offering DRM Free music as well now. (1.29 drm-free vs .99 drm). Are you able to use those songs, or are they still restricted in some manner?

 

You can for sure use any songs that you have loaded onto your computer via CD's that you own, and are just using itunes as an organizer / player of your music. Navigate to 'mymusic' then 'itunes' then 'itunes music'. All of your music will be located there in folders by artist, etc. If it is a purchased song, that is not DRM-Free, the artist folder will show up, but when you open the folder(s), the song(s) will not appear. For the music you actually own, the songs will be available for selection in the folders

 

Good question. You would have to go to ITunes to see what they say and we would have to see what Roxio says about adding DRM free purchased music from the ITunes library. It depends on how the program was written - to recognize the DRM music or to not recognize any music from the ITunes library.

 

I haven't found the need to use ITunes as a library so I can't comment on that. I organize my own music in my own folders.

How do I import music from my itunes library into a photoslide show? Once I import it, can I edit the length of the song in the slideshow?

thanks!

Unfortunately, you can't :( If you bought the music on line, you signed an agreement to comply with the DRM restrictions. That agreement allows you to copy some of those files to a CD but you cannot just use the files from the ITunes library in this program.

 

Yes, if you use VideoWave to make your slide show, then you can add non-protected music files to one or more audio tracks and edit them for length, placement, fade in/out, etc.

To add to what sknis stated in one of his posts above , "... That agreement allows you to copy some of those files to a CD ...", the iTunes software itself has the built-in functionality to burn audio or mp3 CDs.

Yes I tried burning them to a CD fiost and loading them to 10, but it said there were no files that match. No worries...I need to go to the library anyway, its been years : )

 

thanks again

Thank you everyone! Looks like I am headed to the library for a few CDs...I really don't want to buy whole CD's for a song or two.

I know it is a pain. Have you tried using the "Smart Sound" music? If you are just trying to set a mood, it may be enough.
