    How to enable missing prefrences in itunes 8
    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:

    Code:
    defaults write com.apple.iTunes show-genre-when-browsing -bool FALSE
    If you want to reverse this in the future, quit iTunes, and repeat the above command but replace FALSE with TRUE.

    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:

    Code:
    defaults write com.apple.iTunes show-store-arrow-links -bool FALSE
    If you want to reverse this in the future, quit iTunes, and repeat the above command but replace FALSE with TRUE.

    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:

    Code:
    defaults write com.apple.iTunes play-songs-while-importing -bool TRUE
    If you want to reverse this in the future, quit iTunes, and repeat the above command but replace TRUE with FALSE.

    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:

    Code:
    defaults write com.apple.iTunes load-complete-preview-before-playing -bool TRUE
    If you want to reverse this in the future, quit iTunes, and repeat the above command but replace TRUE with FALSE.

    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.

    Preferences->General->Import Settings.
