May 26, 2010

Itunes randomly closes when opened. Virus scan came back negative and all of the file seems to be standard. version number 9.1.1 (12) of itunes and OS X 10.4.11. Anyone have any idea what the problem could be? Also updated Java, but it did nothing.

Apple :: Macbook Pro - Randomly Going Into Sleep Mode

Feb 2, 2009

I have a Macbook Pro (17" Penryn model just before the unibody one) and it's been working great so far until recently...

Lately it's been randomly going into sleep mode and waking up just as randomly as if nothing happened. Someone told me its a RAM issue, but i'm sure it cant be that since that will usually shut the mac down instead of putting it on standby.

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: T420s Is Randomly Crashing

May 29, 2012

Lenovo T420s is randomly crashing. There is nothing special in the Event Viewer. Only that the PC was not turned off properly. Not exactly BSOD.
Error video on YouTube

Usually happening under some load (eg. game) but I have seen the same  running only MS Office. No Macros or special calculations.

I would say this happens due to overheating. This is my second T420s I have same problem with. I work as 2nd. lvl IT so I know other colleagues are experiencing the same.
Frequency decreased once performance settings in power management were switched to balanced mode. Not solved though.

Apple :: ITunes To Mp3

Oct 12, 2009

What do you all use to convert itunes music to mp3 format? Is there an automator action that can do that? Or what third part software do you use?

My daughter just got an mp3 player, and I want to easily get music onto it as it doesn't support the m4a files in our existing iTunes library.

Apple :: ITunes And External HDD

Jun 25, 2009

I am trying to help my parents with their CD collection. A couple of years ago, my dad bought this ridiculous CD player that holds 400 CDs. What should have been a foreseeable problem is that there's really no real way of having any idea which CDs correspond to which numbers. As of right now they lined up the cases and made a photocopy and then numbered the paper printout, but it's just silly and I want to make it simpler.

What I want to do is just put everything into an iTunes library, but since I want it all at audio quality (which iTunes can do, yes?) then I need to keep the library on an external drive. How do I set this up, so that uploaded CDs are automatically store on the external HDD?

Apple :: ITunes Sync Between PC And Mac

Jun 23, 2009

got a 13" MPB, 2.26GHz.

I have a Dell Inspiron desktop that has a couple of files I want to keep in sync with the Macbook Pro.

I have one hurdle already down with Dropbox - I sync my important documents/files between the desktop and the Mac. However, I would really like to have my music synced between the two iTunes libraries as well. I did a quick Google/forum search on the issue but it seems like people haven't arrived at a conclusive answer or it involves programming with rsync, which I'm not familiar with at all.

Apple :: ITunes Organizing

Apr 17, 2009

Is it possible to make iTunes store different artist, but same album into 1 folder instead of spreading it out? I hate having multiple folders for the same album in my library. I makes it so confusing when looking for my music.

Apple :: ITunes - Name Change

Feb 14, 2009

With the application store for the ipod touch and iphone, full blown movie store with TV shows and rentals... the iTunes Store is kind of busting out of its name by the seams, is it not? What is needed here? a new name for iTunes that represents this? nothing splitting up iTunes into multiple apps?

Apple :: 3.0 Ipod Software W/9.0 Itunes

Sep 23, 2009

I didn't pay for the 3.0 software for my Touch because it wasn't (and still isn't) worth it to me. Everything was fine until the latest update to iTunes came out. Now Yahoo IM, Twitterfon and Facebook won't appear on my Touch. Is my only option downgrading iTunes?

Apple :: ITunes New Column Browser

Sep 12, 2009

Anyone else dislike the new column browser? In previous iTunes, the bar was accross the top; access to Genres, Artists, Albums.....

Now, down the side (taking more space away from my collection views), and I have to go to a menu to select between the different options its lists.....

Honestly Apple, why? Its crappy, out of place and makes me scroll accross because before I actually had enough room to get all the info I needed on my screen (track, artist, album, track number).... now.... not so much!

Apple :: How Do I Transfer My ITunes Library

Jul 7, 2009

I'm getting a new computer. My old one is at my parents house and has my entire iTunes library on it. I know I can't just plug my ipod into a new computer and upload the songs onto it, but I'm sure there's a way to transfer the library from my old computer to my new one.

How exactly can I do that? I assume it has something to do with an external hard drive, but I'm not sure.

Apple :: Itunes - Two Instances Of The Same Song

Jan 2, 2009

Forgive me if this a stupid question. I'm a Mac newb. In windows I had my music sitting in my "My Music" folder and Itunes pulled from that. If I deleted something out of there I couldn't listen to the song.

When I got my Mac I moved all my music to the "Music" folder. I then dragged them into Itunes. Some time later I noticed the mp3s seem to be duplicated in the "Music" and "Itunes" subfolders.

My question is: Can I clear out my "Music" folder?

Apple :: ITunes 9 Auto Import Folder

Sep 10, 2009

Saw this tip on another site and figured others may find it useful and wanted to pass it along.


Tip: Using The New Automatic Import Folder In iTunes 9

10:26 am, September 10th, 2009, Giles Turnbull

iTunes 9 has neat little new feature: it will automatically import any music or videos you throw into a specific folder.

That folder is called Automatically Add to iTunes, and after installing iTunes 9 youll find it tucked away inside your ~/Music/iTunes/iTunes Music/ folder.

Anything you drag into it will be imported into iTunes immediately and its worth noting that the original file (the one you put into the Automatic folder) promptly disappears afterwards. It doesnt get trashed, but moved to the appropriate place inside the iTunes Music folder.

Apple :: ITunes AppStorehow To Redownload All My Purchased Apps

Jan 23, 2009

my Dad has this issue with his iTunes.

We just did a clean install of Leopard and authorized the computer and all that, you know sign in the account in iTunes and all...

Anyways, my Dad has this list of purchased apps in his "purchase history". However, when clicking "Check for available downloads" iTunes reports that all the apps have been downloaded.

And no, my dad doesn't have them on his iPhone anymore because it's a jailbroken one and I had to wipe out everything and make it new again.

How do I re-download all his apps (that he bought) from iTunes? and by the way, there's no "Applications" in his sidebar in iTunes, because he has none on his HDD.

Apple :: Did My Itunes Sync Erase My Pictures On My Iphone

Apr 4, 2010

Originally i had photos from my iphoto synced up to my iphone. This was when i had the original drive on my mbp. Since then i upgraded to a SSD but i didn't restore from time machine. Recently i synced up my phone again to the new machine and since the photo album didn't exist in the new SSD, itunes erased the album. I don't have the photos on the old drive anymore since i formated the drive. Itunes made a backup of the phone before it synced but i looked through the backup and can't find the photos.

Apple :: IPad Users Targeted By 'iTunes' Virus

Apr 26, 2010


Apple iPad users targeted by 'iTunes' virus

It may have only been on the shelves in the US for a few weeks but the Apple iPad has already been hit with a virus.

BitDefender has reported that it has found malware links are being sent to iPad users which disguise themselves as an iTunes update.

The malicious link comes in an email, explaining that if you update your iTunes you will be given "best performance, newer features and security".

Once clicked, any sensitive data stored on the users' iPad may be used for exploitation.

Backdoor man

BitDefender said about the virus in a release: "Identified by BitDefender as Backdoor.Bifrose.AADY, the piece of malicious code inadvertently downloaded injects itself into the explorer.exe process and opens up a backdoor that allows unauthorised access to and control over the affected system.

"Moreover, Backdoor.Bifrose.AADY attempts to read the keys and serial numbers of the various softwareinstalled on the affected computer, while also logging the passwords to the victim's ICQ, Messenger, POP3 mail accounts, and protected storage."

The dodgy link is primed for the iPad as it seems that Mac users are unaffected by the link.

The Apple iPad has a delayed UK release date of 'May' hopefully without a virus.

When I click "download all free updates" it says that they cant not be purchased because i do not have write access to the iTunes media folder.

Apple :: ITunes - Can I Import A Bunch Of Songs From Different Folders

Jun 12, 2009

Can I import a bunch of songs from different folders instead of having to drag and drop each individual music file? Like drag and drop the entire music folder into iTunes instead of having to go into each individual artist's folder and dragging and dropping?

Also, is it possible to clear all registered machines to an account? I just went through my third computer and forgot to de-authorize (un-authorize?) my account, again again.

Apple :: Macbook V Macbook Pro (My Short Review Based On 2 Hours At PC World's Stand)

Feb 5, 2009

To start I should remind everyone that i'm not a mac user. I have never owned a mac or used OSX properly before today. As such, my opinions should be taken as coming from someone who has much knowledge and experience as far as PC's are concerned, but who is a total mac n00b.

First Impressions

When I first walked over to the Macbooks I was quite taken aback. The build quality is out of this world. In fact, I immediately walked over to the latest PC laptops to compare and immediately thought "manufacturing FAIL". Really, the Macbooks are italian sports cars, and PC's are 30 year old farm tractors to use the typical "car analogy".

The Macbook

I really only had any interest in the Macbook when I first went to the Apple stand, but came away with the intention of buying a MacBook Pro. Let me explain:

The MacBook's build quality is awesome. It's solid, no creaking plastic or flexable build, completely and utterly solid. Awesome.............
