Well, it took me about 9 days, but I’m finally done importing all my CDs into iTunes. I had previously only imported a small number of CDs ( 340 ). Talk about monotonous. When I would have rather been spending my time doing “cool stuff” with my new PowerBook I was sitting there loading/importing/ejecting CDs. For over a week!
Here are my details:
- 4414 songs, 12.4 days, 20.37 GB
- 15 Genres, 298 Artists, 337 Albums
- I imported everything as 160 kbps AAC
Also, I loaded my iPod with a big chunk of my library and timed the transfer to get an idea how fast firewire was. I moved 11.6 GB worth of music (2544 songs) to my iPod in 25:43. That’s obviously damn near exactly one song per second. Pretty damn fast!
I am a moron. Somebody pointed out to me that the 25 minutes 43 seconds it took to transfer the 2544 songs isn’t 1 song per second. That 25:43 is actually only 1543 seconds meaning that the transfer rate was .601 second per song. MUCH faster then I initially reported. Man, I am a moron……
