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.
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. I do because I checked out all the folders and they say read and write, plus I can add music to the library from other sources than iTunes store without a problem.
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?
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.
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.
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?
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?
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!
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.
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?
I've got a lot of unorganized music and I don't want to play it with iTunes as it adds to music and this will clutter up my organised iTunes library. What is the best media player apart from iTunes?. Similar to Winamp for Windows.
Finally, I can send and receive media to/from friends!
Also, my iPhone 3G seems to work just fine sending and receiving MMSs, while my girlfriend's iPhone 3GS doesn't seem to work. She can receive MMS, but anytime she tries to send one, she gets a red ! next to the photo saying "Error Sending Message. Try Again". I followed the same procedure to enable MMS as I did on my iPhone. OS 3.1 then updated carrier settings via iTunes 9.0.1.
I just downloaded it this morning. It seems faster than Safari, buts it's not as secure. Better do your banking and the like on Safari. The free WiFi at work is very temperamental with Safari. I'm hoping Opera works better.
I am planning on doing a clean install of windows 7 on my computer but when i do so is it possible that i can just sync my ipod to the empty itunes library and let it put all my ipod music on my computer? or will it ask me if it can erase all the data on the ipod and sync it to that itunes library.
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.
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.
[url] if anyone gonna follow the list, i somehow find this conclusion:
- don't use any function iphone offers...
what's the point of having an iphone then? or why a PDA phone in general..
Optimize Your Settings Depending on how they are configured, a few features may decrease your iPhone battery life. For example, the frequency with which you retrieve email and the number of email accounts you auto-check can both affect battery life. The tips below apply to an iPhone running iPhone 2.0 or later software and may help extend your battery life.........
I know this isn't a cell phone forum but it IS the Apple sub-section so I don't know for a more suitable spot for it.
Anyone have the iPhone 3.0 OS up and running? I just downloaded it a couple of minutes ago and am installing it right now on my iPod Touch to play around with. I'm not sure I want to load it on my phone yet because it states it is impossible (or difficult) to go from 3.0 back to 2.2.1. I am interested in some of the phone features but I believe I will wait for the actual release.
More hits than misses in my opinion but still one feature that I wanted to become built into the "phone" page was voice dialing. Third party apps technically get the job done but I don't want to go scrolling through apps trying to find it. Landscape texting and MMS were my favorite of the announced features.
I bought a used jailbroken 2G iphone for my wife. When I put my SIM card in it tells me to connect to itunes. Will I lose all of the apps and games already installed? Do I need to restore it and start over? I'm completely ignorant on this as I have never even owned an ipod.
Anyone use a third party to get their iPhone battery replaced. Mine's crackerhacked, so I think the Apple option is a no go for me. Unless I'm wrong? My battery is getting pretty bad. I've had it for almost three years. If I take it to work with light usage, it's half done by the time I leave. It used to last five days. It's the 2g so it's soldered. While I'm sure I could do it, I'm not the best solderer. Anyone have any positive or negative experiences?
