Itunes For Windows XP: How To Use Itunes And Your Ipod On Windows XP & Vista

Mar 20, 2008
When iTunes is mentioned it can refer to the software or the music store. For Mac users, iTunes is like what PC users have, the Windows Media Player. However, when the iTunes music store was launched Apple started offering iTunes for Windows XP. This was, of course, logical since Apple knew how small of the market share Mac users are. By offering iTunes to everyone including PC users, the market of iTunes have of course broadened as well.

iTunes for Windows XP Enhances iPod Use

If you are a PC user and you have an iPod, you can easily sync your iTunes playlist to your iPod as often as you want. You can buy individual songs and albums from the iTunes music store. The more songs you have on iTunes the more enjoyable.

Well, using iTunes is easy because it's easy to navigate and its interface is very straightforward. And yet it still comes stylish and easy to the eyes. There are actually three parts of it. On the left side, you'll see your music library and playlist tools; then the main part of it in the middle is the list of the songs you have in your PC. And on the top, you have your playback and search tools. You will truly appreciate the ease especially when you have hundreds or thousands of songs on your playlist.

Buying Music through iTunes Means Buying Better Music Quality

On the other hand, what's good about the iTunes music store is that you can listen to a 30-second sample of a song first before you actually buy it. This is quite a very useful tool so you can ascertain for yourself if you will really like the song. While some would argue that hearing the complete song first is needed, the 30-second sample is highly appreciated by most. Another thing you have to really like is that songs bought from iTunes can shared up to 3 computers in your local network. You can also copy the song to and fro your computer and your iPod as many times as you like. Not only that you can burn them into CDs up to 10 times.

When you buy songs from iTunes, they come in good sound quality because they come in Advanced Audio Codec (AAC). It comes clearer than MP3s. Still MP3 can be included on your iTunes playlist. And aside from AAC and MP3, iTunes also has Apple Lossless which is said to be even better than WAV. What is not supported though is the WMA (Windows Media Audio). But PC users shouldn't be discouraged because you can always convert WMA files to AAC. You will still be able to listen to these songs and you can still load it to your iPod.

So what iTunes for Windows XP really offers is being able to play, to shop and to enjoy music with ease and control. Even if you are not a Mac user, you can still take advantage of the quality of music experience iTunes can bring. And with your iPod, iTunes really then gives you portability.
