Classical Music on an iPod - 2

This post goes through some setup steps before we can start importing CDs.

Get the view of your library that you need for classical music.

Click on Music under Library at the left side of the window. Click on the “View” menu and then on “as list”. Click on the “View” menu again and then on “Column Browser” and then on “On Top”. Your iTunes window should look similar to this image

The number of columns and some column headings may be different on your screen..

Hide the sidebar panel on the right side of the iTunes window. This will give you more room to display columns.

Slide the mouse pointer over the vertical line at the left of the file list. Hold the left mouse button down and drag the vertical line to the left to get more room for the file list area.

Right-click on the upper set of headings (Artist, albums, etc.) Be sure the following tags are checked: Genres, Composers, Artists, Albums.

Right-click on the lower set of headings above the file list. Be sure that the following tags are checked: Composer, Album, Artist, Name, Time and Genre. After you have all the tags checked, you can rearrange the columns by holding down the left mouse button over a tag name in the column name and dragging it to the left or right. You can adjust the width of columns by dragging the vertical dividers between column headings to the left or right.

Your iTunes window should look similar to this image.
