Applications :: Moving ITunes Files With Artwork And Playlists?

Jun 2, 2009

I have an external drive that has all of my music stored on it. I already have been using iTunes with the external drive and have all my artwork and play lists setup. I want to move the music files to my internal drive on my 24" iMac. What do I need to do in order to move the files and not lose my artwork and playlists?

Applications :: ITunes Won't Apply Artwork To Certain Files?

Feb 12, 2010

I've searched and found others with similar issues, but none of those threads provided a solution.This is happening on just a few TV episodes. I have hundreds that work fine, but on just a few iTunes will not save the artwork. I can add it just like with any other file, either drag and drop, or using the "add" button. It appears in the window, but after hitting "ok" it doesn't apply. Hit Get Info again and there is nothing there.All of these are encoded using Handbrake with the same settings used for everything else

Software :: Moving ITunes Playlists To New Mac

Oct 9, 2010

on my iMac I have a full set of iTunes playlists and songs. I bought a new MacBook Pro today and transferred my entire Music ---> iTunes folder to the Music folder on the new Macbook Pro. My question is, how can I have it so that I have all my playlists from the old computer (I don't want to have to sort through all my songs). Is there a preference file I have to import or is the iTunes folder enough? How should I import it?

Applications :: Where Does ITunes Store Album Artwork Files?

Apr 22, 2009

I can click on the album artwork in iTunes (8.0.2) and it will display the larger version of an album cover, but I can't right click and copy it, or display the actual file in the finder. Sometimes I want to copy the artwork for an email, forum, etc. and don't want to always use Grab to make a screenshot. Where are the album files stored on my Mac?

ITunes :: Artwork Missing After Manually Moving Album To IPad

Jun 12, 2012

I have seen that several people have experienced this, and one 'solution' is to delete the album from the iPad and then move it back from iTunes. However iTunes will not let me move the album again onto my iPad. Why not? (I am having to use manual moving rather than syncing because I have another iTunes on a PC, and the iPad seems to have attached itself to that.)

Info:MacBook Pro (15-inch Late 2011), Mac OS X (10.7.4)

Applications :: Moving ITunes Files From External To Internal HD?

Sep 3, 2010

I recently upgraded my internal HD from the factory 120 gig to a 500. Because my itunes library is so large (250 gigs) I had been keeping most everything on an external WD drive. Now I'm trying to figure out how to move all these files from the external to my new internal drive without having to reset all my playlists and such (I have two iphones and an ipad pulling from certain playlists. It would be a huge undertaking to redo all this).

Does anyone know of an easy way to accomplish this? I thought about just copying and pasting all the music directly to the itunes folder. But then when I go to play the song in itunes it says the file cant be located (the external HD is disconnected) and asks if I want it to search for the song. For a few songs this would be fine. But with 46,000 its out of the question.

Applications :: Moving Individual Song Files Within ITunes?

Jun 10, 2010

I keep my iTunes Media folder on my external drive, but I found that recently iTunes has put several of the albums I've ripped on my local drive (/Users/<me>/Music/iTunes/iTunes Music, I assume that's the default location). Not sure why, though I know there was a time when my drive was inaccessible for some reason, so perhaps I ripped them then. Anyway, point is I want to move them to the external drive where the rest of my music lives. I tried just "moving" them in Finder, and I say "moving" because Finder doesn't really let me move but rather copies to the external drive. Which I think is part of the problem, since I then moved the local versions to the trash bin, from which they still played on iTunes. I guess iTunes (or MacOS in general) tracks where files move. Once I emptied the trash, though, iTunes claims it can't find them. Even though shiny new copies are right there in my iTunes media folder on the external drive.

Applications :: ITunes 10.1.1 Moving Files To Wrong Location And Then Losing Connection?

Dec 16, 2010

This morning I tried to play one of my albums and it told me it wasn't able to locate the files (on my external disk) so I located them manually and for some reason it has created a new iTunes folder in the root of my HDD (even though the iTunes prefs still pointed at the external disk) and moved the files in to that.

I deleted the album from the library and then imported the files from the new folder. It imported them fine and copied them to the exiting iTunes folder in the ext HDD but then immediately copied them back to the wrong iTunes folder. Then it told me it couldn't find them again!

I've now discovered 4 other albums that it's doing the same thing with and no matter what I do I can't get them to import, stay on the ext HDD and remain connected.

I've re-installed iTunes and restored my library file from before I upgraded to 10.1.1(4) but it's still doing the same thing.

Applications :: Moving ITunes To External Hard Drive - Orignal Files Missing?

Jan 15, 2009

I recently bought a 160GB external hard drive, and decided to transfer my iTunes music to it. I followed the instructions in the Help section of the iTunes program. The first time, I mistakenly created an empty "iTunes" folder and put an "iTunes music" folder inside, where i proceeded to copy the files. I had already set the defult location of the library to my F: drive, my external hard drive. However, the original location of the files stayed in iTunes. Again, following the advice of the iTunes program, I deleted the original folders, and I dragged the new iTunes music folder into the window - at which point i had TWO copies of each file - the first one with an exclamation beside it (original file missing) and the second being my new copies.

Applications :: Can't Add Own Artwork In Itunes...

Dec 21, 2008

Some of my cds don't have any artwork with them (choir recordings, friends' recitals, etc) so I just want to add my own pictures or artwork in itunes. The images are all under 200x200, all jpeg (though I've tried other formats as well), and when I go into the "get info" part and add it to the artwork pane, it shows up. But when I click "ok", it doesn't show up with the rest of the albums (as Cover Flow or as Grid). I've tried "clear downloaded artwork" and then adding it, but that doesn't help either.

Applications :: Can't Add Album Artwork To ITunes 9

Nov 15, 2009

I've been trying to figure out how to add album cover to .flac and .aiff files for a while. When I try to add it to .flac, it just shows "Album cover not modifiable" and when I try to add it to .aiff files, it does it, but then when I quit iTunes and restart it, it's gone again.

Is this a bug or it just not possible to add album cover to them?

Btw: Audiophile, would prefer .flac or .aiff over .mp3

Applications :: I Can't Get My Mac OS 9 ITunes Playlists?

Sep 17, 2009

I know some of you out there will probably think I'm nuts, but please read the whole message first.

I have been disabled for a number of years, and recently a friend of mine purchased for me a refurbished MacBook Pro 15" 1.83GHz Intel Core Duo laptop, which, as you might guess I love, since my last Mac laptop was the 1999 PPC G3 400Mhz that croaked about 5 years ago.

Fortunately, before that late, semi-great machine died, I was able to copy to an external drive my entire iTunes folder, which contains the "iTunes Music Library" file as well as the "iTunes Music" folder with more than 1,000 songs in it. I do NOT have any written documentation on my playlists.

Now, many years later, I have this great machine that I love, and I cannot for the life of me figure a way to import my Mac OS 9 iTunes PLAYLISTS into Mac OS X iTunes 9. Additionally, the song file folders, structured perfectly in Mac OS 9, now get recreated in truly bisarre ways in iTunes 9, where I get multiple folders by the same artist if that artist has ever done a duet with someone, and soundtracks have been broken out into individual folders by each artist on the soundtrack, instead of all the songs being placed into ONE folder with the soundtrack's name on it, as it is in the Mac OS 9 iTunes Music folder.

All I want to do is recreate my library and playlists as they were in Mac OS 9, using iTunes 9 in Mac OS X 10.6.

Applications :: Only Small Artwork Format In ITunes 10?

Sep 2, 2010

So I got a bit surprised after I installed iTunes 10 that I can't adjust the artwork in list view bigger! Anyone else noticed this? In iTunes 9 you could just drag the bar besides the artwork and it would increase as much as you liked. Now if you click on Album by artist you can choose artwork small - medium - large, but it's not big enough!

Applications :: ITunes Artwork Not Showing In Finder?

Dec 15, 2010

So I've been re-importing my CD collection (now using AIFF) after iTunes deleted most of my tracks.

Once I have imported a CD, I then open the album information tab and locate the artwork. I then go to my iTunes music folder in Finder, but the artwork is not showing in the thumbnail tracks for the albums I have re-imported; the artwork shows in iTunes, but not Finder.

Any idea why and what I can do to solve this?

Applications :: ITunes - Can't Seem To Add Artwork To Uncompressed Audio

Sep 11, 2008

For uncompressed music on my iPod, I drag the AIFF files from the CD to my desktop, then from my desktop to my iPod in iTunes.

From there I am able to use Get Info to edit the artist, album, genre, track info, etc., and that all works fine. But I am unable to associate album art with the uncompressed files.

I copy and past the artwork into the Artwork box and click okay, then nothing happens, it's as simple as that.

I tried selecting a couple uncompressed tracks AND MP3 tracks at the same time and "mass editing" the artwork, and only the MP3 files are changed, not the uncompressed files.

Applications :: ITunes Artwork Displaying Incorrectly?

Apr 21, 2009

I go to preview a larger thumbnail of artwork in iTunes, it does one of two things. It either shows up extremely large only allowing me to view a small portion of the actual album, or a indescribable pixelated position tracker that reflects whats normally shown in the iTunes window at the top. Hopefully that made sense but I'm curious if I have some virus or something. I've got the latest version of iTunes and all.

Lately I've found that when I add artwork to a song (or even change the name of the song), the volume decreases quite noticeably. About halfway through the bar when it is adding the artwork, the volume will permanently go down about 25-30% for the song(s).

Applications :: Manually Download ITunes Artwork?

Jan 12, 2010

One of the drawbacks of Automatically get Artwork function is that even if the proper artwork is in the iTunes database, the program does not download the correct artwork. I've noticed this is a real problem for a number of my Grateful Dead recordings (especially Dick's Picks, and the Download Series). I like the iTunes artwork because it's good quality and properly formatted, in terms of size and how the image displays, for the iPod. Is there anyway to manually go into the iTunes store, and copy and paste the correct album artwork?

Also, I know that I can just go somewhere else to get artwork, and I do when needs be, so please don't just tell me to grab it from Amazon or the like.
