We need a bottom rung in everything, If beats did not exist, we wouldn't have anything crappy to compare our gear with.

Doesn't mean that the bottom rung has to be $500 and sound worse than $8 IEMs. (Monoprice 8320)

Convert your thumb drive to FAT32 format instead of NTFS, since MacOS doesn't recognize NTFS-formatted drives. That's the only thing that comes to my mind.

no wonder my pendrives come standard in that format.... that format does not allow for files more than 4gb in size though so i reformatted it to NTFS

It makes sense though since NTFS is developed by Microsoft. And stuff made by Microsoft generally doesn't play well with MacOS, like how the Zune player will never ever get detected on a Mac, don't know if they fixed that already.

Apple does play nice with Windows though, so you have iTunes on Windows and Windows on Mac. Bootcamp will even guide you through the process of installing Windows. I think it just comes down to the fact that Windows is still the more popular platform.

 

iOS vs Android is very much the same except Apple is playing Microsoft's role. They dominated the smart phone market for quite some time before the first Android phones came out. The Google Maps drama mostly was caused by the fact that Apple Maps turned out to be garbage, while Youtube can still be downloaded as an app, just that iPhones don't come preinstalled with it anymore.

 

Also you know you're an audiophile when your family tells you to buy less headphones :D

When I try to put the music on the USB from the Mac it doesn't go on
Do I format the USB after putting on the music? I did it before

Maybe some of your files are more than 4GB like streetdragon said so maybe check that? That's FAT32's limitation.

(but i highly doubt a single song file is more than 4gb)

to wolfetan44:
do you have a pc to test the format of your usb?
and no, formating a usb is like cleaning a canvas, erasing everything. so you should format it before putting the music in.
if you can put the music in it already, then there is no need to format it thentongue.gif
