I have a large amount of Wondershare tunes that are in a folder "not added to itunes" no matter where I drag these, to the desktop or to itunes...they will not be accepted anywhere? I open "Get info" and they play. But cannot place them in any folders. What to do? Please help?
Hello Patrick, could you try re-downloading and re-installing the program? Nothing is changed and it works according to our tests.
Guys your free trial looks nothing like your youtube video. Its black and i dont see the paste url or convert to youtube. Did you change it?
Mine says my preferences keep me from downloading it, anyone know how I could change these settings?
Hi Roy, if you use the Mac version, there will not be an "Add to iTunes" button. But you can press Control and click the song at the same time. In the drop down menu, please choose "Show in folder", then transfer to iTunes manually.
I downloaded for Mac, and put some tunes in there from youtube, but the icon is not there to transfer to iTunes as shown above. I'm using the trial version. Is this feature blocked in the trial version?
