Applications :: ITunes Not Playing Some MP3s - Unknown Format

Aug 24, 2010

I've searched I've found out that iTunes not playing some MP3s it's some king of ID3-TAG-or-sth-like-that issue, so I downloaded "MP3 Validator for Mac OS X"
And it fixes some of my songs, but not all. It says "unknown format" for some MP3.

Applications :: ITunes 8 Unknown Sound Effect Playing

Sep 17, 2008

I've been stumped lately as to what in the world is playing a strange sound that i think is a product of Genius. It happens when I:

- Navigate to the iTunes store
- Click on any links in the itunes store, search, account, etc
- when the Genius side bar is out, and tracks change while playing from my Music.

I have gotten it to stop the incessant noise making when tracks change by turning it off and hiding the side bar; but it still makes the noise when i click playlists, my iphone or ipod, other directories, etc.

Applications :: Loading MP3s From CD Via ITunes?

Mar 9, 2009

I don't have an iPod, but am considering getting one because I have exceeded the 20GB capacity of my current MP3 player. Although I do multitrack recording on my Mac Pro, I know very little about the iPod, and have following questions:

1. How would I make (if it's possible) MP3's from my CD's so that I can then load the MP3's on to the iPod. Is it possible to put a CD in my Mac, and make the MP3's via iTunes, or does one have to buy (and download) the MP3's from the iTunes store?

2. Is it possible to download MP3's from my PC (yes, I have both) on to the iPod, and if so, can I use the iPod with both my PC and my Mac?

3. I seem to recall reading that if one wants to delete an MP3 from either iTunes or an iPod, one has to connect and synchronize the iPod with the Mac that has the MP3 on it (in iTunes) and then delete the MP3, i.e., you can't delete the file from the iPod without deleting it from same computer from which it was downloaded through iTunes. Is this correct?

Applications :: How To Burn AAC Files As MP3s In ITunes

Jan 15, 2010

I would like to burn AAC files as MP3 in iTunes. I tried checking the option MP3 CD in the burning dialog box but it didn't work, It said something like these files cannot be burned as mp3, these are songs from the iTunes store (aac files).

How can this be done in iTunes if your songs are AAC?

Do I need to convert them to MP3s first? If yes, will this convert my downloaded files (.aac files form iTunes store ) to mp3s as well?

Applications :: ITunes Not Responding When Importing Mp3s

May 27, 2010

I'm a new macbook pro i5 user (first mac). Got it last wednesday..I've gone by with figuring stuff out myself, and browsing for help articles etc. online

I have a Western Digital 500gb fw/usb external harddrive that I used with my pc laptop. It's formatted in NTFS, and filled up with my mp3's. I've tried to drag the whole folder over to itunes, it chokes up and shows the rainbow icon thing both on usb and on FW. Then I tried to choose like 10 folders and import, still chokes up but it did manage to import SOME of those folders. So you can see it'll be a big problem for me to import the whole thing if I have to live with this and do it manually.

Second thing is, the few GB's that it has imported, everytime I open itunes now, it tries to finish estimating pauses and whatever for those tracks, but keeps choking up and get unresponsive. So I have to hard-quit itunes, or quickly hit the X several times to make it stop figuring out the pauses etc.

Wondering what is up with this...brand ned MBP that otherwise runs well, newest itunes that otherwise runs well, no problem with the harddrive...You guys have a solution? Should I format the harddrive to another format, what?

Applications :: ITunes Unknown Error (-3237) On Vista Desktop?

Mar 21, 2009

I just recently had an iTunes Unknown Error -3237 on my Windows Vista Desktop. My iPhone and iTouch doesn't appear in iTunes but show up in My Computer. I plugged it into my sisters Toshiba laptop and it is detected just fine. I plugged it into my MBP and it is detected fine as well. I don't know what the issue is for iTunes. I am running iTunes 8.1. My iPhone is synced with that computer and now I can't sync music to it in fear of losing the current ones I have on my phone. Also I get a iTunes Store error as well.

It won't let me onto the iTunes Store. It just comes up with an error saying there is a network issue to to check it. My internet is working fine but I can't figure out why iTunes is freaking out on me ~_~. iTunes Store works fine on my MBP and sister's laptop. My iPhone backups are all on that computer and same for my applications that aren't on my phone. I have tried reinstalling iTunes and it doesn't remedy the issue. I tried turning off iPod Services and starting it back up to no avail.

Applications :: Unknown ITunes Error (-42408) Computer Authorization

Mar 9, 2010

I just plugged in my old iPod (a nano 1g) and iTunes said I need to authorize my computer or 15 songs would be taken off. So I chose authorized, typed in my password, and it gave me unknown error -42408. I tried again a few times with the same results. So I decided to look it up on Apple's support website, and it didn't have anything about it. I also couldn't find it on Google. What the heck does this mean and how do I fix it? Btw I just plugged it in a week ago and it worked.

Software :: ITunes 7.6.2 Distorted With Mp3s?

Jul 4, 2008

If I play the file via preview, or QT, they will play fine. Crossfade, soundcheck, sound enhancer are all off, the EQ is also off. I have also found that that bitrate displayed in the pre-import mp3 is 128... After import the bitrate is 172(VBR). If I convert them to aiff, the distortion is carried into the new file.

ITunes :: Copying Mp3s To SD Card?

Apr 29, 2012

I just purchased a new phone with a SD card (4GB) and copied some MP3 songs to it. The problem is that, after copying, the MP3s are in place but so are 4K files of the same name as the "real" MP3 files. I have to go into the phone and manually delete these small files.

ITunes :: MP3s Made On Mac Don't Play In Car?

Jun 13, 2012

I recently bought a new car (a UK Toyota Auris - might be relevent), which has a USB port built-in for playing music from a USB stick.

"Great", I thought. I'd recently just converted all of my CD albums on my business Mac Pro. "Happy days." However, when I tried to play any of this music, the car's player would either recognise the album, and song title, but not play the song, or, just not recognise the music at all! "No Track" was the most common response.

Sometimes an album would work! But mostly they didnt'! I took the USB stick, and the DVD backup of all my music, and put them both into my home Windows 7 PC.

I copied the relevent tracks from the backup onto the PC, tried them using iTunes (all worked OK), then copied them onto the USB stick (which I'd re-formatted as FAT32, the format specified by the car's player).

But still the music is not reconised. I tried ripping a couple of CD's again, this time on my home PC using iTunes. STILL nothing worked in the car. I even had the car's player tested, and this checked out OK! I then resorted to trying Media Player 12 to rip a few albums. And these worked! I tried a few more. Still working! 

Can anyone suggest to me why the iTunes ripped albums (either Mac or PC) refuse to be recognised by the car's player? And whether there might be a work-around, so that I could use the thousands of MP3s I've already made on my Mac without having to resort to re-ripping them all again on the PC? 

Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

ITunes :: Can't Access My Mp3s From My External Drive

Feb 28, 2012

I've read most of the articles in Support but can't find an answer. I read this too [url]...

I'm running itunes 10.5.3 on my imac. I transferred my itunes music folder to an external drive because it was taking up too much space on my internal drive. Then I went into itunes preferences and changed the location of the folder to the external drive. But I can't access tons of my mp3s now. When I click on a song in my library that it can't access, I get that explanation mark, and a statement asking me if I would like to locate the file. I locate it, and then I can listen to it.

And after I find that missing file for itunes, a window pops up and asks "Would you like itunes to use the location of "-----" to find other missing files in your library"? I select 'yes'. But then itunes can't find the missing files, even if they're in the same exact folder as the last one I found! It seems to me like this function is broken? And I have like 2,000 missing files! I even re-imported my itunes music folder back into my library. But that didn't work and now I have a ton of duplicates.

Info:iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.8)

ITunes :: Cannot Preview MP3s Directly From Finder

Jun 17, 2012

Since a few months, I just can see mp3 files as an icon with the itunes symbol in it. Before, there was previews from the album cover and every time you click on it, the music was played in preview mode directly from the finder.Just a few minutes ago, I updated the version of my itunes to the currently newest one. That didn't give me a solution indeed.

Applications :: Convert Existing AAC To MP3s?

Jan 25, 2009

I am facing the fact that if I want the most versatile for my music library it is MP3. Now I have more than 200gb of AAC formated music that I want to convert to MP3 and maintain the best quality sound I can.

Older version of iTunes (pre v8) I could go to Advanced > Importing > Convert Selection to ___

Now I cannot find the Convert Selection to ___ option anywhere. In fact when I look at the help file, it refers to the same location as I was used to going to... but the import tab is no longer a tab.. its a button on the General Tab.

Applications :: ITunes 10 - Not Playing Any File?

Oct 8, 2010

I woke up this morning and used my apple remote to wake my MacBook, then hit play again to start iTunes playing. Nothing happened.

I verified that the sound was turned up, to maximum. And on closer inspection found that iTunes had started to play a song, but was making no progress in actually playing that song - the progress bar was stuck at 0:00 and skipping songs or scrubbing within a song makes no difference.

Restarting the application made no difference.

All of my music is 128kbps m4a and I also attempted to play m4v files, with a similar lack of success.

I am running iTunes 10.0 on OSX 10.6.4, and I have modified the .plist to restore the coloured icons, as well as using the terminal hack to restore the traffic lights to the correct orientation.

Applications :: Need To Rename MP3s (Artist / Album)

Aug 25, 2010

I'm not sure why I'm having such a hard time finding an app to do this, because it seems like a common task. I have a bunch of MP3 recordings that are untitled. They will all have the same artist and album name. Rather than import them into iTunes individually and entering the same information over and over again, I'd like to find a program that will allow me to assign an artist and album name (and maybe other info, like genre, etc.) in a batch prior to importing the files into iTunes.

I've had iTunes 10 on my PPC Mac crash twice in the past hour while playing SD video that worked fine in iTunes 9 here. The first time iTunes itself crashed. The 2nd time it caused a kernel panic. Has anyone else had any issues playing video with iTunes 10, particularly under Leopard or a PPC machine under Leopard? I'm about ready to go back to iTunes 9 at this rate.

Applications :: ITunes Not Playing Music Imported From CD

Jan 21, 2009

I imported several cd's and tracks into iTunes last night and there were no problems while importing. I was able to listen to my music in the iTunes library up until this evening. When I click on a song, a box pops up saying "Connection Failed: The server may not exist or it is not operational at this time. Check the server name of IP addres and your network connections and try again." So I press "OK" and another box pops up saying "The song "(name)-(artist)" could not be used because the original file could not be found.

Would you like to locate it?" I click on "Yes" and see all my songs listed under iTunes/music but all of the songs I have listed in the library are gray and I cannot click on them. I have checked that I am connected to my home network/internet because I am able to share/listen to my iTunes library located on my Windows desktop as well as browse the internet. The only other thing I could think of doing was downloading the new iTunes 8 which I did, and nothing has changed.

Applications :: ITunes Crashes Constantly On Playing CDs

Oct 30, 2009

iTunes has been crashing for months when playing CDs (but it's fine for DVDs and the audio files on iTunes). ppc G5 iMac, 10.5.8. Twice on inserting a CD, again when the CD concludes, and often during playing, or when I try to adjust volume. It did this with a LaCie external drive and now that I've installed a new replacement Toshiba internal superdrive it still does exactly the same thing. After reading about the many bugs with v9.0.1 I obtained v8.0.2, deleted everything to do with iTunes and reinstalled the older version. However, the crashes continue unabated. Have run Disk Warrior, Tech Tools Pro5, reset the hardware pulling the AC plug etc., run Permissions over and over, thrown out prefs files, etc. No improvement. AppleCare on iMac is expired and no other forum has helped. Couldn't find another ap just to play CDs or I would use it! QuickTime doesn't work.
