Applications :: ITunes Skipping Songs When Listening To Shared Library?

Jul 8, 2009

iTunes skips songs when I try to listen to a shared library from my Mac Pro, on my MacBook Pro.

This always happens when trying to "fast-forward" through a song (it'll skip to the next song).

I'm assuming that this is some kind of networking issue, because if I let the song play long enough, for what I perceive as enough time to transfer the song entirely from one computer to the other, it won't skip to the next song when fast-forwarding.

The two computers are in adjacent rooms, connected wirelessly via an AEBS on 802.11N (g compatibility mode).

Applications :: ITunes Start Skipping Songs?

May 11, 2009

I was playing music on iTunes and one of the songs I was listening to just skipped through - iTunes started skipping, 30 seconds or so at a time, through to the next song. It started to happen around halfway through the song, although exactly where is unclear. Repeatedly pushing the cursor back to where the song was before the skipping starts seems to help, in that the songs only starts skipping again a bit later. The one thing that's changed recently is that I turned on Genius.

In fact, when I turned Genius off, the issue seemed to be fixed, until it happened again. I managed to make it through most of the song, though, but the next few songs all started skipping through right from the beginning. It's now happening with every single song I try playing. I hope Genius didn't actually damage the MP3s; I have no idea what it does. All I know is that my iTunes is officially unusable. Quitting the program and restarting did nothing.

ITunes For Mac :: Songs On It Skipping / Jumping?

Aug 30, 2014

using MacBook Pro os x mavericks / I have had this issue a few times now, I have purchased new CDs and came home to import them to my iTunes library straight away. They import perfectly fine but as soon as they're finished importing to library, I go play the album and a few of the songs skip or jump (like when you play a scratched cd in a CD player) though the cds are not scratched.

I am using the external USB super drive to import as the MacBook has no cd slot built in, I thought maybe I was bumping or moving the super drive while the disk was importing and  this may be effecting songs being imported properly so I deleted the albums and imported again making sure the external super drive was not moved but there is still 1 or 2 songs playing up. 

Info:
iPhone 5s, iOS 7.1.1

Applications :: NAS Shared ITunes Library And Multiple Computer?

Feb 12, 2010

I have my iTunes library stored on a NAS, UNRAID, and I currently do not have my files copied into the iTunes library. They reside on the UNRAID in a movies and movies folder, so the iTunes library itself is fairly small.

However, this is what I would like to do. Since I have several AppleTV and several other Macs running. I'd like to keep one Mac on 24/7 and have iTunes open all the time pointed to my NAS iTunes.

Applications :: Using ITunes With Dropping Connection To A Shared Library On Vista?

Sep 12, 2007

Seems that maybe i had this in the wrong forum so i'm posting it over here...

I have all my music stored on a Vista machine. I share that library with my Macbook Pro. When i open itunes on the macbook it recognizes the library on my vista machine and i enter the password and everything is fine for about 90 seconds. Then it just drops the connection and the shared library disappears. Any ideas? anyone else have this problem? It's not a network problem because i can still access the internet and stuff after this happens.

Applications :: Remove Album Artwork From Songs NOT ON ITunes Library

May 9, 2009

I copied a lot of songs to my cell phone so I can here them wherever I go. However, i noticed that because of the album artwork, I couldn't copy as much songs as I wanted. Is there away I can remove the artwork embedded in the mp3 files WITHOUT reimporting them back to iTunes? I don't want to remove the artwork from the iTunes library, just from the phone card. Is there a separate application that can batch-handle ID3 tags and artwork? i copied the songs from my macbook to the m2 memory stick using a usb adapter so i can use the songs on my ericsson. I think it is really annoying that iTunes requires songs to be in the library to handle them. I could really use a separate application or a script/folder action that would do the trick - freeware or shareware

Nov 16, 2009

Basically somehow my iTunes got jacked up.. just the music part of it.. Anyway, they are all songs from my CDs or mp3's, but just as a failsafe, I would like to backup my entire iTunes library to my external hdd.

I would then like to delete all the songs from my iTunes, and from my iPhone. *edit* figure'd out how to remove all the songs from my iphone.. just unchecked all songs and sync'd.. now I just need to backup itunes and delete everything from it, then reput what I want back into itunes and resync.. sweet

After which, I would like to rebuild my iTunes library using my mp3's and CD's and basically start from scratch.. so that this time around I can properly name songs/albums/artwork/etc

Then I want to take this new iTunes library, and fill my iPhone back up with my new Library in Itunes..

so basically I just want to backup my itunes just incase for some reason I cannot find a particular CD or mp3 in my collection.

Just for the record, I am using a Mac Mini running Snow Leopard 10.6.2, and I have an iPhone 3GS 32GB running the latest 3.1.2 firmware (jailbroken using blackra1n rc3)

Applications :: Is There A Listening History For Radio Streams In ITunes?

Jan 13, 2010

The other day I was listening to a iTunes radio station, and enjoyed it. Like a doofus, I didn't put that stream in a playlist and now I'm left to stare at 395 total streams in that category without a clue as to which one it was. Is there any way to look and see what I was listening to the other day to find the specific stream?

In my search on the internet, I found one thread that referenced listening history back in version 3 and another thread by a person with my same problem that was unanswered.

OS X :: Cover Art In Front Row From Shared Itunes Library

Mar 28, 2008

How about fixing this one apple, when viewing/listening to a dvd/cd from a shared itunes library via front row, the artwork (CD covers/DVD Box Art) is blank. This worked in the leopard betas' but never has worked since release. I thought Apple was all about the experience, I guess they don't care about Front Row and shared libraries.

ITunes :: Can't Access Its Library On A Shared Drive

Mar 16, 2012

Here is my problem: I want to access my iTunes library from a shared drive.

Here is my equipment:

1. Imac running iTunes 10.6

2. 1 week old Macbook Air running iTunes 10.6

3. 1 Timecapsule that is 1 day old, bought with the express purpose of putting my extensive iTunes library on it, and was assure I would be able to stream it.

4. An Airport express hooked to my stereo.

The concept was that the Air doesn't really have the capability to hold all my music, but I want to use it as a "remote" to select songs through iTunes and play them on my stereo.I did NOT want to leave my iMac on at all times and do homes haring that way.Therefore, I followed intructions fonund else where and moved my iTunes library from my iMac to the newly installed shared drive on the Time Capsule.I went into iTunes on the Air selected preferences, advanced, and changed the location of the Air's iTunes library to that of the one on the Time Capsule. It sees all the music. I close preferences.

Applications :: Using Itunes For Listening To Music Off External Hard Drive On MBP?

Jan 14, 2011

So I checked the threads on here and tried multiple ways and cant figure this out.

I have a MBP, itunes 10.1.1, and a western digital passport essential.

I loaded pictures and my old itunes library off a HP pavilion desktop.

On my Mac, when I try and open my external hard drive off the desktop and click my itunes library file I stored from my old HP it simply wont open. I right click it and click open with itunes and the file icon fades off my screen very quickly like its trying to import it but wont. I have tried dragging it and holding option when opening itunes, which actually does display the playlist but only with explanation points because the files cannot be found.

I just want to be able to plug my external in and listen to my playlist I have stored on the western digital, on my mac book without erasing my current itunes playlist on my MBP.

Applications :: Finding ITunes Recommendations For Listening Stats - Hours

May 20, 2009

Keep track of hours of music listened to in say a continuous 2 week span. This can be synced through your ipod and within itunes itself. And give ratings related to how much hours of music you have listened to in the those 2 weeks. So if you've listened to I dunno 12 hours of music within that span, it'll keep track and give you a rating like: 'casual listener' or if you have totaled up 40 hours of music listening you're an 'avid music fan'. I dunno what to call them but I like knowing how much music I've really listened to recently and this would be cool.

Or to take it even further, see what genre (granted you have this organized in iTunes) that you're listening to most and this can go even deeper.

Software :: Shared ITunes Library Between Users - How To Use On Other Computer

Jan 11, 2009

My wife and I have both just got iPhones. I have created a user account for her on my intel iMac and want to use the iphones on the one computer.

I need to share the iTunes library (and iphoto eventually) so I dont have to double-up everything.

I have tried dragging the Itunes Music into the shared folder... and creating aliases as described in various places on the web and in magazines, but this simply does not work. No tracks appear in my wife's itunes. There is not even 'shared library' icon on the left hand side.

ITunes :: Songs Don't And Won't Appear In Library

Apr 16, 2012

I'm having problems with songs I've loaded into iTunes not appearing in my library, even though they're on the hard drive, and properly filed in the iTunes folder. 

I ripped all of my Beatles CDs a couple years ago, and now that I'm looking at them again, certain tracks are missing when I search under album, title, or artist. 

Strangely enough, they ARE on the hard-drive, properly organized in the iTunes folder. 

Even more strangely, when I try to drag the file into iTunes again, it STILL won't appear, though it WILL play.  However, even when it plays, the library still does not show that the song exists. Do I now have to somehow rebuild the library?  It seems like that's what's called for. 

Info:
iBook, Mac OS X (10.3.x)

ITunes For Mac :: Transfer Huge Library Of Non-iTunes Songs To PC?

I have a Macbook with about 5,000 songs on it, all of which are burned from actual hard copies of CDs that I own. Rather than re-burning each CD to my new Windows computer, I would like to see if there's a way to transfer all these songs from Mac to PC using an external hard drive. 

The real question is how can I format my external hard drive to be recognized on both a Macbook running Snow Leopard and a PC running Windows 7?

Software :: ITunes Won't Add All Songs To The Library?

Aug 9, 2009


I have an iPhone and 8000 songs in mp3 files. I had the iPhone perfectly syncronized with iTunes in a Windows XP PC but i decided to buy both a new PC and a Macbook, so i saved ALL the 8000 song in several DVDs to backup them.

Unfortunately I had to re-syncronize my iPhone with the new computer (this time i used the mac with Leopard, iTunes 8).

First I copied the music (all the 8000 songs) to the HD on my Macbook. Then I opened iTunes and added the whole directory but ONLY 5000 SONGS WERE ADDED! I tried to manually drag the songs missing...but iTunes doesn't add them either.

I believed this was a problem with the Mac, so I sincronized my iPhone with the PC (Windows Vista, itunes 8.0) and when I tried to add the same songs (previously copied to the HD) ITUNES ADDED JUST 5000 SONGS AGAIN!

Then I tought that the problem were the mp3 files (bad burned) so i tried adding them to Windows Media Player and MusikCube, and all the 8000 songs were added without a problem!!
