Has anyone had trouble uploading the mp3s from the Christmas album from iTunes to their iPod? Although the mp3s play fine in iTunes, iTunes lists the sample rates as "Unknown", and thus they can't be uploaded to an iPod.
I'm sure that when the CD is released, cophying them in the usual manor into iTunes and then onto the iPod will work just fine. Also, while the titles show up just fine in the file names of the pieces, and the mp3s seem to be tagged properly, a couple of the titles do not show up in iTunes, and just the generic track number appears.
The workaround I've found that solves this problem is to convert the files to another format such as AIFF, and then load them into iTunes. iTunes must retag them or something, but then the sample rate is shown and they upload to my iPod just fine.
I hope this helps anyone who might be having this problem. I use a little shareware program called Switch. It is for both Mac and PC. It's a jem of a little program and is under $30. Here is a link.
