2. Select the album-tracks you want and drag them into the playlist (works best if you order by artist/album)
3. Klick on your playlist

Hope this helps!

You can just do steps number 2-3. But I'm not sure if this is the original question. I think he wants to IMPORT his playlists from Windows.
post #122 of 404
Importing playlist is even easier (at least with my old winamp playlists).
Drag n drop into itunes is all I had to do.

It may help others if they have the same problem...

Agreed, and agreed.

Talk about mixed up signals... \
post #125 of 404
I'm honestly not sure.

I just turned it off, disconnected the computer, took out the RAM, put the RAM back in, turned on the computer.....and it worked.

Maybe it wasn't properly connected. I honestly don't see how it wasn't...because I snapped it in the same way the 2nd time (that's why I was really surprised when it worked).

Right, I know of that method...

Hehe....but that's really a pain to do for all my albums.

Not only that, but I have mixed lists of different songs from different CDs.

That's the biggest problem.

Like for Ben Folds, I removed all the "filler" songs and made a best hits list. Etc.

Back to the (cough) topic, I ordered 2.0/250/X1900XT/Bluetooth/802.11g on August 13th, and my ship date has been an unwavering September 20th. Oh, cruel BTO.
post #128 of 404
yeah i ordered mine on the 8th--the day after it was announced. hopefully im high in the priority list

All I see is a x1950xtx. Why not list the card they're shipping as a 1900xtx if they planned on bumping it up?

Yeah - I've got Airport, Bluetooth, a smaller harddrive, and the x1900xt. And I ordered a week and a half late. I won't see it forever.

I feel your pain Zack. I went with quad 2.0GHz with Airport/Bluetooth and the X1900XT. I just ordered it on August 19th and its expected SHIP date is sept 19th. add another 4 days or so for shipping. the wait will kill me as I am currently without a macintosh for the first time in many, many years.

oh come on its not that bad. did you really need to upgade further? another $100? maybe even $200 with apple? did you really need the GDDR4 memory, at 2ghz? no way. its as big a difference as they make it sound... the card you got is nearly top of the line 8)

lol just trying to make you feel better

It's just the fact that by the time it ships, the X1950 XTX will be shipping. Keep in mind that at the price Apple is charging for the X1900 XT upgrade, they could provide the X1950 XTX.
post #135 of 404
why in the hell would they charge +350 for the x1900 and not charge more for a better card? or maybe i misunderstood your comment, but the nvidia is way more even yet, so sure they could offer the x1950.. doesnt mean i need it though

Just placed my Mac Pro order. It should be shipping in a month...grr.

Dual 2.66GHz, 1GB RAM (plan on upgrading, of course), base video, BT+Airport, and single 250GB drive.

Looks like I'll finally be able to semi-retire my G4 400 to server duty. Anybody want a 8600/200 + assorted trimmings?

The Wife just got a black macbook yesterday, I'm waiting on NewEgg to get their 100G momentus drives in, and just bought 2GB of RAM for her.

Both of us are belatedly leaping into the 21st century with abandon, it seems.

Yeah! This kind of thing is the reason we can't have nice things.
post #142 of 404
Why in the world does the Apple site list shipping as 3 - 5 business days for BTO? Seems like 3 - 4 weeks is what everybody is reporting.
post #143 of 404
I guess it depends on the BTO. You can add Bluetooth or RAM for no real delay, and switching HDDs is apparently likewise not a big deal. It's supposedly just graphics cards and airport that cause the delay.

What's your configuration?
post #148 of 404
I ordered 8th August and the shipping date went from the 18th sept to 21st just this afternoon. Ordered 2.66/1gb/250/ap/x1900.
They must be pushing all the dates back to torture us or something.....

Same specs, same order day. Shipping has been the 13th and hasn't moved... yet...

It's probably because you and I ordered early.

EDIT: Huh, I wonder what made RBF617's ship date later than ours even though all three of us ordered the same config on the same day.

I never updated my response in this thread. I actually got the Mac Pro on 8/16, after ordering it on 8/8. My order was stock other than 3.0GHz CPUs.

So I've been using the Mac Pro for about 9 days now and it rocks. The stock video card is fine for desktop use, although I will want a "real" card if I play games with it or do some OpenGL modeling... although $500 for the Apple card is just silly.

The real trick is that I'm waiting around for some big manufacturer to start putting big heatsinks on their FB-DIMMs. Don't feel like paying for Apple's RAM, either (or OWC's). I guess I could attach some VGA heatsinks to some NewEgg Kingston RAM and be done with it. The Mac Pro really needs more than the stock 1GB.

Get a gigabyte of Crucial's RAM (two 512MB sticks with Apple-style heatsinks) for $200. There's also a few other places offering it now such as TransIntl:

and OWC.

If you have the 3.0 gHz, how about giving us a benchmark on the threadedFactorialHighRes app? The best we have is 2 seconds per processor with the 2.66 gHz models.

Attachment 123

Run it without arguments, and it will do 50 million calculations. Then run it with 2 billion calculations by typing

./threadedFactorialHighRes 4 2000000000

See if it can beat 89 seconds for 2 billion. That is what the 2.66 Woodcrest gets.
