One thing I've never understood about buying music on line, if you buy a song, why do you not then save it to your PC? You have to download it to hear it, so why not have a program like Audacity running in the background to save the song for your future enjoyment?

For most people, yes. I wanted to be able to access the iTunes store to see whether my music is actually available for sale there. As far as I know, Clementine cannot do that.
Seems odd to me that they could be selling your music there and you not know about it one way or the other.
Well, the music is sold through CDBaby. I know they submitted it to Amazon (I can see it there), but I don't know whether it was also submitted to iTunes.

No, you can't. The only way I managed to do that is by creating a Windows VM, install iTunes there and only then I've been able to.
Without each other's help there ain't no hope for us :happy:

I think that's too much trouble for me. I don't even know if I have a licensed version of Windows around.
