MacBook :: Why Isn't ITunes Starting

Jun 23, 2014

I have a Mid 2007 MacBook (Core 2 Duo, 2.20 GHz, 2GB, OS X 10.6.8 Snow Leopard) and I am having a problem with iTunes.  I have a fresh install and was going to sell the computer to a client when I realized that iTunes had a serious problem.  Whenever I go to launch iTunes, I click on the dock icon.  It bounces multiple times on the first attempt, but the program never launches by showing "iTunes" in the top menu.  The little light never comes on beneath the icon either.  Also note that on each attempt afterwards the icon only bounces once and then stops.

ITunes :: Itunes Won't Open - Stuck On Box With Apple - Acting Like Starting Up

Jan 21, 2009

I have an iBook G4 that runs on OS X. Today, my software update box popped up, and I downloaded the new version of itunes. It worked. Then the other update didn't finish. I'm not sure if that's connected. Now, my itunes won't open. When I first tried, nothing would happen. So I restarted the computer, but it wouldn't full restart (stuck on the box with an apple, acting like it was starting up but never did). So I did an archive install with my discs. That worked. But now when I try to open itunes, a box pops up and says that "you cannot use this application with this version of OS X." What?? I feel tricked and panicky. What can I do?

OS X :: ITunes Starting In 32bit Mode

Jun 2, 2010

I was messing around with Audio Hijack and it was working just fine. But now it seems iTunes always starts in 32-bit mode (even without audio hijack running). Also it seems to take quite a while to open the app. If I log in as root (or via a Terminal) I can open iTunes just fine, 64-bit and it opens instantly. Also when I log out OS X hangs a while on the screen you get when he's logging you out (the blue-ish screen).

Applications :: Damaged ITunes Files - Starting Over

Oct 9, 2009

So the last couple of days iTunes has been hell for me. Couple of days ago, when I opened iTunes like any other time, I was presented with an error message saying my itunes library was damaged. Anyway, long story short, I've started over and created a new one and imported all my songs, podcasts, videos etc in. That all worked well, but I was still missing my precious play counts and ratings, though I was able to import my playlists. So what I did was import one of the itunes database files from the "previous itunes libraries" option. What happened then was that it removed all the files that I purchased after the date in which the database file was created. Annoying as I can't remember every song I've purchased.

The 2 main problems at the moment is that the files I purchased are already in my iTunes media folder, I found that out by just searching some songs I remember, but the matter of remembering each one is impossible. I contemplated the idea of "Add to library" but I think all that does is import everything again into the library rather than find any ones that aren't already in it. Is there anyway to get iTunes to automatically find the files that aren't already my library and just add those? Second problem is I have is the dreaded '!' next to many of my songs, again I am sure that I have these files in my media folder (I've checked), iTunes has just (for some reason) not found those files. Again, is there a way for iTunes to automatically find those files? As opposed to me finding and clicking on everyone of those '!'s and locating the files manually?

Applications :: Starting Fresh With ITunes 9.0.1 - Importing Music?

Sep 24, 2009

Had some library troubles with iTunes 9, and decided to do a clean install of not only the program, but of Snow Leopard itself. I was waiting on an iTunes update to come out before I decided to re-load my library in, since I didn't want to risk repeat problems (I've always been one of those bleeding edge-ers, and this is the 1st time I've ever had a problem/held back...guess I learned my lesson). 9.0.1 is out and seems to address the problems I'd been having, but I caught the "start fresh" bug and I want to start over with iTunes. No playlists, play counts, etc need to be saved.

I do have a full backup of my previous system and I'm wondering what the best way to get all of my music back into iTunes is.
- Do I use the Finder to simply drag the contents of my old "iTunes Music" folder into the new "iTunes Media" folder?
- Do I drag the whole folder and drop it onto the iTunes window? (I'm worried this method won't put iPhone apps, ringtones, audiobooks and podcasts in the right place).
- Do I use the import function?
Prior to making the backup, I did upgrade to/select iTunes Media Organization

ITunes :: When Press Pause, The Song Keeps Starting From The Beginning Again

Apr 26, 2012

Basically, when I manually (and using keyboard) press pause when playing back a track, each time I press play again the track starts from the beginning. It has never done this before, ever. I need to find a way to fix it in order to work.

ITunes For Mac :: Disabling From Automatically Starting When Headphone Plugged In

Dec 3, 2014

I have a Macbook Pro running OS X Yosemite Ver 10.10.1. Whenever I plug in my Apple headphone it in, the iTunes automatically starts and I would like to disable the same. I am talking on FaceTime using my head phone, (I am guessing some small movements of headphone triggering this) the  iTunes starts automatically and the songs start to play during the FaceTime call. 

Does any one know how to disable the iTunes from not starting up automatically, whenever a Headphone is inserted into Mac. I can start iTunes whenever I want like any other application. But I just don’t want any automatic starting of iTunes, when I plug the headphone!

Mac Pro, OS X Yosemite (10.10.1)

MacBook Pro :: Last-FM Keeps Starting On Its Own?

Jun 20, 2014

I've had Last fm for a while, and whenever I plug in my iPhone or iPad, it will randomly start on its own, even after I force quit the app, it keeps doing it, and it drives me insane, it'll start up in the most inconvenient times, and I have to quit it at least three times before it finally stops starting itself. Is there a way to fix this, or do I just need to uninstall it and be done with last fm ?

MacBook :: Starting Up But Not Booting?

Apr 17, 2010

so I have read most of the start up problems, and mine is different. Whenever I shut down and try to start my computer again, I am not able to get my computer to turn back on. I hit the power button, and hear the computer humming, but not the typical hum-hum that usually occurs. My screen remains black with no activity. After 5 to 10 attempts at this, the computer starts up fine, and I have no problems with it running. I do not have this problem when I use the restart function, say after I download a software update. This problem is driving me nuts as I am afraid I can not shut off my computer!

MacBook Pro :: Beeps Instead Of Starting Up?

Feb 29, 2012

When i try to start my macbook pro 13" (early 2011) I get a black screen and it beeps three times.  Based on internet research it appears to be a RAM problem. The closest store is 2 hours away and I don't want to send it away.

MacBook Pro :: Not Starting Up Or Booting From CD

Mar 14, 2012

Yesterday my MBP suddenly froze while starting Google Sketch. Not just the program, but the entire computer. After a few seconds the screen started flashing like crazy. I waited a minute or so before I forced it to shut down.

After doing so I turned it back on and now it will not start up. I can turn it on, but then I will only see the turning wheel thing you always see. After a few minutes of turning wheel the wheel will freeze.

Talked to my local macstore and they told me to try and reinstall my entire system before sending it to a repair guy. And here is my problem.

It will not boot from a Cd or en usb with Lion on it. Not when holding "C", shift or any of the other keys down.

This morning I managed to boot from the system CD and erase my harddrive and start installation but, then it froze for an hour andIi had to shut it down again. Now I am back to not being able to boot from my system CD.   

Is it a hardware error or what. My Mac is pretty old. It is the one just before the current MBP design came out. But have another computer, but I use this one a lot, so it is really frustrating that this should happen just before a possible new Mbp design..

MacBook Pro :: System Not Starting Up After Upgrading RAM

Dec 10, 2010

I upgraded my MacBook's ram tonight and now when I turn it on the Apple logo an spinning thing come up then after a bit the screen dims and it says, "you need to restart your computer. Hold down the power button untill it turns off, then press the power button again." I had two 1gb sticks and I put in a 2gb so I'll have three. I put the new one in the top slot but accidentally poped up the bottom one too. I've tryed about four times and put the original one in and get the same results. Could it be that I didn't push it in enough. If I can't get it to work tonight can I take it to the Apple store for them to see, and will I still be covered, I know they don't cover the new ram.

OS X :: Macbook (2007) Leopard Not Starting Up?

Jun 28, 2009

I bought my 13" Macbook Sept 2007 and I've cleared it off and reinstalled everything once since I bought it just to keep it clean.

I haven't had any problems until yesterday (June 28, '09), I tried to start it and it won't go past the gray screen with the logo and spinning disc.

I've tried these suggestions:


None of these have worked. Tried the PRAM, taking out the batter and adapter and holding down the power key etc.
