Finished Compilations

Dan Audio Projects

I just finished all of the compilation albums. That means all that is left are the musical/show albums, and then I need to re-rip the missing ones that got lost when I had the data error. I should be done by next week!! iTunes status: 3475 albums, 68298 songs, 133 days, 253.95 GB

iTunes sucks

Dan Audio Projects

Yet another reason iTunes sucks: I forgot to turn off “Keep My Library Organized” when I got home, and it rewrote a good portion of the albums I had digitized today, into ONE directory, all under “Unknown Artist / Unknown Album”. Crap. The only place now that has all the pertinant data is at work, so I am there now, re-allocating the files. But I have to do so one at a time, and let it “find” each file, individually. …

Blue Screen of Disappearing Files

Dan Audio Projects

I’m installing the latest round of CDs (song albums now), and iTunes crashes. Hard. How hard? Well, it made XP give a blue-screen of death. Not a good thing, especially during hard drive operations. Oh, and since my Music drive is actually a Macintosh formatted hard drive, it’s using MacDrive to mount it. So hmm – how will this affect it? After rebooting, I got a drive error on the drive when I tried to copy a folder onto it. …

Finished "Z"

Dan Audio Projects

Wow. I finished “Z”. Chris Young and Hans Zimmer were the big ones. I made some serious progress these past two months! I now need to do the song soundtracks, television soundtracks, and compilation CDs. Then I’ll be done. Just in time for me to get my iPod in November. Yay!! iTunes status: 2947 albums, 61833 songs, 110.5 days, 206.7 GB

Finished "W"

Dan Audio Projects

Finished up “W”. Mainly comprised of John Williams, it took about a week. “X” will be super-short, but “Y” will be long because of the Chris Young collection. Should be done with it by next week, though, I hope! iTunes Status: 2779 albums, 55125 songs, 104.4 days, 199.24 GB

Finished "V"

Dan Audio Projects

Well, there was nothing in “U”, and “V” was terribly short, since I already had most of them digitized! I’ll start “W” next week; could use a small break! iTunes Status: 2624 albums, 52126songs, 97.4 days, 185.95 GB

Finished "T"

Dan Audio Projects

Holy crap, that was fast! Pretty much Brian Tyler, as I expected. I don’t have much Tiomkin. 🙁 I would expect “U” and “V” to go very very quickly… iTunes Status: 2617 albums, 51990 songs, 97.1 days, 185.36 GB

Finished "S"

Dan Audio Projects

Finished “S”. Wow!! Silvestri was huge, as was Schifrin and Shore. I don’t think “T” will be very big, except for Tyler. Might be able to get that done by Friday! iTunes Status: 2591 albums, 51422 songs, 96 days, 183.25 GB

Finished "R"

Dan Audio Projects

There was nothing in “Q”. So that took very little time at all. “R” was a bit longer, but it wasn’t too hard to get it done in 3 days (2.5, really), and I’ll be spending a big longer on “S”! iTunes Status: 2376 albums, 46914 songs, 87.6 days, 167.13 GB

Finished "P"

Dan Audio Projects

Finished “P” this week. Lots of Poledouris albums! There are no composers in “Q”, so I’ll be moving on to “R” next week!! iTunes Status: 2265 albums, 44557 songs, 83.4 days, 159.09 GB
