Loading music cd's to My Cloud 4T

Please, I can’t stress this enough: DON’T RIP TO A LOSSY FORMAT.  You have a a 4TB drive. It will hold about 10000 albums ripped to lossless FLAC.

Once you have ripped to a lossless format, you can transcode to your heart’s (or device’s) desire.

My ears are shot due to tinnitus, but I can tell the difference between FLAC and the highest quality, 320kbps MP3.

ps. I have 62 thousand tracks, and counting. Do you realise how long it took to rip them…?  Fortunately, I chose to rip to lossless when I started. I would NOT want to do it again because I chose to throw away quality on a lossy format. Some of my friends ripped to 128kbps MP3, and sorely regret it. They can’t face the re-ripping tasks, though…

If you’re targetting an iThing, look for Apple Lossless Audio Coding, ALAC.


What music do you have and want to load to your Cloud? If it is Apple Music, I am afraid you can’t for Apple Music is DRM-protected. However, if you just use for personal use, there is a way to go. You can use TuneFab Apple Music Converter to remove the DRM so that you can load it. Whatever, I never try this, but you can have a try!

If you can’t load the music, maybe the format is not supported. I encountered similar problem before, but I use the audio to audio converter to convert the songs to MP3, now it works perfectly to transfer the songs.
