Here is a list of ways to do thing for itunes 8 that was available in version 7 by default. Just they were taken out of version. But terminal comes to the rescue.
1. Show genre when browsing: This feature is set to “yes” by default, so if you’d rather only see Artist and Album in the browser, use this Terminal command:
defaults write com.apple.iTunes show-genre-when-browsing -bool FALSE
2. Show links to the iTunes store: This feature is set to “yes” by default, so if you’d rather not see these arrows, use this Terminal command:
defaults write com.apple.iTunes show-store-arrow-links -bool FALSE
3. Play songs while importing or converting: This feature is set to “no” by default, so if you’d like to automatically listen to what you’re importing, use this Terminal command:
defaults write com.apple.iTunes play-songs-while-importing -bool TRUE
4. Load complete preview before playing: This feature is set to “no” by default, so if you’d like to automatically listen to what you’re importing, use this Terminal command:
defaults write com.apple.iTunes load-complete-preview-before-playing -bool TRUE
5. Editing the rate at which you want to rip tracks in itunes 8 has moved since version 7. Here is where it is in version 8.
