I love using iTunes for my music but recently the amount of memory it uses has been causing me an issue. I listen to music when I use photoshop, when itunes it running it can slow down and sometimes crash photoshop. Is there a way that I can lower the mem usage?

You could try opening task manager and lowering the priority of iTunes.

iTunes (at least on Windows) is a horribly optimized piece of crap, and the only reason I use it is because Apple locked the disk mode feature on the iPod Touch, meaning it's now impossible to use WinAmp to sync, like I used to with my iPod Classic.

Yeah, pretty much that. I also don't like the way I-Tunes tries to format a disc for copy either. I've been able to import songs to Nero and get more songs on a disc.

You could try disabling some of the iTunes-related processes in the Task Manager, but apart from that, there's not much that you can do.

Oh yeah. I've had cases where I bought a retail music CD, imported it, and then when I tried to burn a copy later, iTunes couldn't fit it all on one disk. >_

I've only made one CD from iTunes, the only thing I found useful was the track delay. Otherwise, I just use my shuffle on it, that's pretty much all it's good for.

iTunes is the best for importing and organizing a collection IMO. Winamp never impressed me.

foobar2000 is where its at for playback though.

It depends on what settings you import it with.

Imported with the standard AAC rip settings, 128k if I'm not mistaken.
