Archived - iTunes 1.1: Information and Download

This article has been archived and is no longer updated by Apple.

This article contains the About iTunes 1.1 document and a link to the iTunes 1.1 software.

iTunes lets you create your own personal digital music library, allowing you to manage and play your collection of high-quality MP3s with drag-and-drop simplicity. With a supported CD-RW drive, you can even create your own custom audio CDs for use in your car or home stereo system.

Mac OS 9.1 and a supported CD-RW drive are required to create audio CDs with iTunes. All internal Apple-supplied CD-RW drives work with iTunes. For important information about using other drives, see "Using non-Apple CD-RW drives", below.

What's new in iTunes 1.1

This version fixes conflicts with some USB peripherals and improves overall stability. Additional options and keyboard controls for the built-in visual effects generator are now available. For a list of the keyboard commands, turn on visual effects, then press the ? key. You can also choose to always display track information with the visual effect. Turn on visuals, then click the Options button.

You can now record audio CDs using external CD-RW drives. For more information, see "Using non-Apple CD-RW drives," below.

A development kit that programmers can use to create additional iTunes Visual Effects plug-ins will be available from Apple Developer Connection. For more information, see http://developer.apple.com/sdk/.

Using non-Apple CD-RW drives

This version of iTunes allows you to record audio CDs using several non-Apple CD-RW drives. To see if iTunes works with your drive, open iTunes then choose Preferences from the Edit menu. Click the Advanced tab. In the CD Burning section of the Preferences window, check to see if your drive is listed. If it is, iTunes recognizes and works with your CD-RW drive. You can use it to burn audio CDs.

If your drive is not recognized, you may not have a supported drive or some other CD driver software is preventing its use. If you have installed other software that burns CDs, use Extensions Manager to turn off its extensions. See Mac Help, available in the Help menu, for information on using Extensions Manager.

These CD drive mechanisms are supported:

  • LG (CD-RW CED-8042B)
  • Matshita (CD-RW CW-7121, CD-RW CW-7586, UJDA310)
  • Mitsumi (CR-4802TE, CR-4804TE)
  • Philips Iomega (CDD4801 CD-R/RW, ZIPCD 650)
  • Pioneer (DVD-RW DVR-103)
  • Plextor (CD-R PXW1210A, CD-R PX-W8432T, CD-R PX-W8220T, CD-R PX-W124TS)
  • Ricoh (CD-R/RW RW8040A)
  • Samsung QPS (CD-R/RW SW-208B)
  • Sanyo LaCie (CDBP-121032, CDBP-161040, CRD-BP1300P)
  • Sony (CD-RW CRX140E, CD-RW CRX700E, CD-RW CRX140, CD-RW CRX145, CD-RW CRX160, CD-RW CRX700, CD-RW CRX10U)
  • Teac (CD-W24E)
  • Yamaha (CRW4416, CRW6416, CRW8424, CRW8824, CRW2100)

It is recommended that you use your computer's internal Apple CD drive for importing songs or playing CDs since you may experience poor playback when using other drives. If you create an audio CD and it seems to play incorrectly, try playing it in your Apple CD drive or stereo system.

Important: With FireWire and USB CD-RW drives, you may not be able to use third-party CD burning software after you install iTunes. Contact the manufacturer of the CD burning software for updates that resolve this problem. To avoid this problem, when you install iTunes choose the option that does not install the CD authoring support. You will not be able to create audio CDs with iTunes, but your third-party CD burning software will continue to function.

If you have a USB or FireWire CD-RW drive and have installed other software that burns CDs, use Extensions Manager to turn off the extensions for the other software. See Mac Help, available in the Help menu, for information about using Extensions Manager.

If you have a USB or FireWire CD-RW drive and are experiencing problems using other CD burning software, use Extensions Manager to turn off the extension "USB Authoring Support" or "FireWire Authoring Support", as appropriate for your drive.

FireWire and USB CD-RW drives must be connected to a built-in port on your computer. Drives connected to expansion cards are not supported.

If burning a CD is unsuccessful and your external drive becomes unresponsive, turn its power off and on to reset the drive.

If you receive an out of memory error when burning a disc, increase the memory allocated to iTunes, or turn on virtual memory. See Mac Help, available in the Help menu, for information about managing memory.

QPS Que!Fire Drives - If your drive has a Plextor mechanism and you experience poor playback performance, you may need to update the drive's firmware. Contact QPS for information on upgrading to firmware version 1.0.7 or later.

Updating your CD firmware

On some computers, the iTunes setup assistant will notify you that an update is available for the firmware that controls your Apple CD drive. This update will improve the speed at which iTunes extracts audio files from your CDs. If you see this message in the iTunes setup assistant, you should install the update. A copy of the firmware upgrade is included on the iTunes CD. It can be downloaded from the iTunes Web page at http://www.apple.com/itunes/.

IMPORTANT To install the update, you must copy the installer to your hard disk and open it from there. You cannot install the update when your CD drive is in use.

Using other CD programs

You can continue to use other programs that play CDs. However, only one program can control the CD drive at a time. For example, iTunes and Apple CD Audio Player cannot both be used to play a CD at the same time.

Creating CDs

When you insert a blank CD, make sure iTunes is the active application. Otherwise, the blank CD might not be recognized by your computer.

SoundJam customers

If you have SoundJam installed on your computer, opening CD tracks in the Finder will open SoundJam instead of iTunes.

Playstation discs

On some Mac OS 9 systems, you may be unable to use Playstation discs, and other discs that are in both ISO-9660 and Audio format, after installing iTunes. This problem does not occur with Mac OS 9.1. For information on updating to Mac OS 9.1, see http://www.apple.com/macos/.
