Hi all, my first post so hello to everyone

I imported all my music via a direct link from my PC to the Mac. I had to convert all my WMA's to MP3's first and then did it.

Not sure why, but lots of albums only have one track in each folder and loads of artwork is missing. So iTunes looks pretty rubbish when I open it up presently.

I was thinking of deleting all the music and starting from scratch with fresh burn imports on all my music (gulps).

How can I best go about this please?

What bit rate do you advise when ripping and how can I be sure to have deleted all my current music and thumbnails etc?

Would deleting and reinstalling iTunes do this?

Thanks.

Nick

Thank you for the response Chas!

I'll probably go for 256/320 thanks as I just listen on a 2.1 desktop Logitech system. I will stream it to a Logitech squeezebox radio from time to time.

I think then that I just need to delete all my old music and re-rip the new. I have all the original music on my PC still, so no need to keep both for a time.

What about all the old album art, is that worth deleting too, it will it just reintegrate when I rip the new library?

I just like the idea of a clean start I guess.

Many thanks,

Nick
