troubleshooting Question

issues with iTunes slow

I just purchased an Apple iPod touch, downloaded the Apple iTunes software which is version 10 and installed the software on my Windows 7 pc. I have been using WinAmp v5.58 and have converted all of my cd's with it.
Now with iTunes, when I start it up and select a new folder (500+ songs) in each one, it takes forever to go through and add them. The first message that I see is something about "downloading album artwork" and then it goes on to state "determining gapless playback information"

My WinAmp never does this and works flawlessly BUT it doesn't see my Touch.
Question 1: is there a way to turn off the garbage in iTunes?

Question 2: is there a way to use WinAmp instead of iTunes?
