I had a patron ask if he could download his 3 Freegal songs onto his iTunes account - from a patron computer. Any ideas?


  1. Of course!

    Karen and Kristen also had this same question today...

    Just dowload the song, save it to the desktop, right click on the mouse, select "open with" iTunes (which is already loaded onto our computers) and it will start playing from iTunes.

  2. Well, yes and no. Freegal mp3s will open in iTunes, but the files will be saved to the local computer. In other words, when the patron goes home he won't have those songs on his home computer, even though in both cases the songs were added to his iTunes "account."

    Apple will introduce this option later this year when they launch their "iCloud" service. It'll cost iTunes users $25/year to sign up for it, though.
