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 you’ll find it tucked away inside your “~/Music/iTunes/iTunes Music/” folder.

Anything you drag into it will be imported into iTunes immediately – and it’s worth noting that the original file (the one you put into the Automatic folder) promptly disappears afterwards. It doesn’t get trashed, but moved to the appropriate place inside the iTunes Music 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 :: IMovie Won't Import Videos

Jan 17, 2009

I tried to go to iMovie tonight to edit some videos, but when I went to import the video, it wouldn't import them. All it did was say "importing video," then it would say "processing video," and then just quit. It only attempts to import a video for about 15 seconds, then stops.

This is iMovie 08 from the iLife 08 suite.

Apple :: How Do I Import All The Photos That Are In My Aperture Library To Lightroom

Feb 16, 2009

I have used Aperture for quite sometime now and have quite a few thousand photos in the Aperture library from my DSLR, I just installed Lightroom as a trial to give it a whirl and see how it compares to Aperture. My question is, how do I import all the photos that are in my Aperture library to Lightroom? I haven't seem to found a way and links from a google search suggest that the photos that are imported through Aperture are stuck in the Aperture format, so I can only view them through the program itself not as an individual file in Finder, is this true?

Apple :: IWork 2009 - The Future - Why Pages's Import Of Simple Documents Is Off

Apr 8, 2010

I'm thinking about snagging a copy of iWork 2009 because, well, I don't like Office 2008 even though I paid a marginal price for the suite as available from my medical school. I realize that Office 2011 is coming within the next seven months or so, but until then...

I haven't been able to find a thing out about iWork 2010, so I'm assuming I'd just spring for the '09 version. In experimenting with the trial, I've noticed that even a simple import of a text-only .docx is formatted differently; it seems like the line spacing is different, because in the imported .pages that Pages makes from the source .docx I made, there are two additional lines of text on the first page. Why is this?

My big thing is that all created works must be easily taken to a different platform; I like OS X, but I have no allegiance to it or to Apple, and if a solid competitor to the 15" MBP comes along, I would seriously consider switching back to Windows 7. I rarely need to share .doc/.docx (or any other Office suite) files with others for their own editing, so PDF exports would suffice most of the time.

I know that .pages files are essentially archives containing XML data and a .pdf of the document, but I'd hate to have to hand-convert a bunch of XMLs if I did switch back. And sadly, Pages doesn't natively save to a .doc/.docx -- it only exports (though I did read about a hack to change that some time ago). Formatting mismatches for something as minor as line spacing are just concerning.

Apple :: Folder Thumbnails

May 18, 2010

I just migrated from W7 to OS X and love it so far but was wondering if there was a way to have the folders show thumbnails instead of just the plain blue folder. Maybe I'm just spoiled because later versions of Windows had that. [url]

Apple :: Folder File Management

May 13, 2010

how to organize files in folders by date modified by when i modified it. I know that you can right click and use "arrange by date modified" but that sometimes arranges the files when they were modified online and not by me. I know on windows when i use Arrange by last modified it arranges it according to the date when i last downloaded it or opened it, not by when it was modified online. I would like to be arrange by date last opened or used by me.

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 - 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?

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 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.
