I have about 500 songs. Everything worked well unti I decided to make them easily accessible. Since starting this I have not had time to listen to music. I have been asking How To questions. I think its time to ask “What type questions.”
What does protected mean?
Most of the songs come from CDs I purchased. For example, I bought the entire O’Neil Brother’s collection of Irish music, about 150 songs. Frequently, when see a live performance, if there is a CD for sale I buy it. I have one CD that a friend gave me. It has his son playing the quitar. Also, I once paid for a membership in a Music Club and downloaded old favorites of mine like Eddy Arnold singing Make the World Go Away, and Billie Holliday, etc. I like to burn a CD of Irish songs for senior citizens. And I have a girl friend who likes Classical music and Jazz. I make playlists for her and copy them to her iPod. I am not selling any music. Am I violating any copy rights? What does protection mean?
What determines easy access?
My idea is to store the songs on a workstation connected to the gateway device on a LAN with a etho cable, in the Shared Music folder in the All Users account. I want to control access through a firewall from notes books connected locally and remotely. Is there a better place?
What format should I use?
iTunes prefers m4a. Nero doesn’t recognize m4a. Should I use mp3? It seems that when I use old software to convert from a new format to an older one, I am going backwords.
What should I do … Go to the Monkey Farm and …See no evil, Hear no evil, Speak no evil.
