Problem with ITUNES (yeah, another one)

I haven't used my ipod mini in about six months, at least. I just built a new pc, got my external HD networked (which has all of my music), and downloaded itunes. I used to be able to run this setup on an old 400 mhz p2 with 512 ram and a crappy graphics card with no worries. I've got a much nicer system now, but still old. So I loaded itunes, connected the ipod, opened the music folder, and click and drug about 500 megs of music over to itunes, and the shit locked up like a bank after six.... It wanted to download album art, and find titles and cd information, and connect to the net to do all kinds of crap.

RECAP: iTUNES wants to do a lot of crazy shit now, and it's too slow to pull all of my music over so I can just listen and transfer it. What are the best settings to turn that crap off, OR, is there a patch or anything for winamp so I can use that to put songs on the ipod? I've got no problems with winamp, but I need to be able to put music onto the ipod.

Thanks H/A

    You could always go to oldversions.com (i think thats what it is) and download an older version of iTunes provided that It will work with your current ipod.

    That way you can simply have the version of itunes that you had on your old computer

    well, I'd like the ability to hit up the music store from time to time, or even start getting the PA podcast, but it's like what AIM or google has become, it gives you the program you want, and 40 features you dont. I just need to know exactly what settings to turn off to optimize performance and not have it look up album covers and stuff. I changed a lot in preferences, closed itunes, reopened it, disconnected from the net, loaded the songs, and it worked fine, till I went back online. I'm missing something

    Oh, also, I've completely removed it, so I can start from scratch with the settings...

    [edit] Nevermind me, we're not talking about running this on the 400Mhz system. :oops:

    I'm pretty good at fine tuning a machine. I had wow running at more than playable fps, including pvp,(never tried raid though) on a 633 celeron, with 374 megs ram, and a 64 meg radeon 7500 (second gen radeon)

    I just had to downscale all the slider settings, and it worked like a charm. I could even run teamspeak in the background without any real hiccups.
