Ca anybody help? downloaded songs from my itunes into a memory stick but when I put into the juke it cannot see them. A friend tried it in his car (which is not a Nissan but a new car never the less) and it played them perfectly!

Doesn't itunes put some copy protection or something on it? I have no idea, I hate the program so tend to avoid at all costs, but I thought it was pretty bad for using proprietary formats.

Hi there..
For the Nissan Connect or Standard Audio to recognise music files on a USB stick they need to be in .mp3 format..
Not sure what iTunes does but it's most likely not .mp3..
Check the extension on the music files on the USB (i.e song.mp3) to see what they are...

I just downloaded my memory stick from windows media player, WMA files works fine in my juke.
Info for all those who have iphones or ipods.
I don't like itunes at all, I load my iphone from Windows Media Player using this niffty programhttp://www.mgtek.com/dopisp/i find it much easier.

Well that's iTunes for you. As with all things Apple they are specific. I think the format is .aac and not .mp3
You can convert them very easily with a simple prog you can download from the Net - or at least I could if I had any.
I wouldn't buy anything iTune, iPad, iPhone wise as you always have to stick to their format of connections and software etc.
Open source software and so on is the way to go. You don't have to pay for any of it and it is backed up by some major players now. I believe some big names are in for a hard time soon because with the advance of the Android operating system (which is probably behind the Juke computer) as well as most smartphones and tablets other than Apple stuff, it is all for our good coz the operating system is free!!!
You could download it today and start building your own software apps for your own electronic gizmo if you wanted. You'll never be able to do that with Apple stuff.
Sorry, going off on a tangent - must be hungry. You should be able to convert your whole iTunes library very easily to .mp3 if you want to.

Sony 'Media Go' is agood free download. It automatically searches for and converts your iTunes to MP3 format.Then it's a simple drag and drop to memory stick (or phone).

ITunes formats are whatever you choose them to be, it's that simple.
As a 15 year Maccer, I'd never, ever, use anything else.
Just burn an MP3 CD straight out of ITunes.
ENJOY :)

Converted to Apple iMac 27 last year as I was so pleased with my iPhone 16/3Gs. Also now have the iPad and 2 iPods in the house.
Not had a virus or trojan or needed to defrag or manage my disc in any way. Sublime. Works straight out of the box and fast. Be brave, change its worth it. Next best purchase after my Juke.
12inch

****, you may want to run Repair Permissions (Disk Utility) now and again to reset/remove outdated library and similar items (I do this religiously after a major software update). If you've never done one, it may take half an hour to complete. Then it's worth doing a Verify too.

Also, in Terminal, type the following :

sudo periodic daily weekly monthly

Press RETURN

It'll ask for your machine password, then run without showing anything in the console.

This just cleans out 'old' caches and such.

True, itunes generally saves music in AAC format, unless you manually save in mp3.

Presently, using a transmitter, in my old car, I just play mine straight off the IPhone (or IPod), then the format doesn't matter.
