OS X :: Importing Itunes Library From Windows To Mac?

Jun 24, 2009

Is it possible to have all my playlist, ratings and play counts completely intact? I've transferred my library across different Windows computers. Does it work the same way by just copying the data base and xml files?

ITunes :: Importing / Exporting Library With Music Ratings

Dec 16, 2010

I am going to be reformatting my hard drive soon and I remember last time that I reformatted iTunes didn't export my ratings with my music. I have read other places about creating playlists with the song ratings so all songs of a specific rating are in that playlist and then export the playlist. I would like to know if this would be a good way to do this. Also I was wondering if there is any way to retain the dates the songs were added to the library, but I am mostly concerned with the ratings.

Ive just installed Windows 7 via Bootcamp on a MacBook.

Sharing Mac ITunes Library With Windows PC

Mar 5, 2012

I recently purchased a 27" iMAC running OS X 10.7.3. This iMac is now connected to my home network/workgroup.

- I want to build a new iTunes Library on my 1TB internal Mac HD.

- I want my 3 non Mac Machines (1 XP Prof and 2 Windows 7 Home) to be able to view the contents of my new (not yet built) iTunes Library resident on my iMac and of course be able to

- play that content.

- have play counts from my Windows-based be saved back to my iTunes Library.

- be able to rate a song from any computer (Mac or Windows) within this iTunes Library and have that rating saved back to this iTunes Library.

I don't want to have to rely on iTunes "Shared Library" function. In other words I want all PCs to be able to read/write to the same iTunes Library file.Before I purchased my iMac, my iTunes Library existed on one of my Windows-file system external drives. The pre-requisites for allowing multiple Windows PCs to access/share/write to the same iTunes Library was to: 

- share the Windows folder on the external drive in which the iTunes Library file was stored (allowing network users to be able to change the files), and

- make sure all Windows-based PCs ran the same iTunes software version.

I don't want to change the version of Windows iTunes software from the currently installed 10.5.0 version.Can my Windows PCs access and utilize the same iTunes library file that I plan to build on my iMac hard drive? What older version of Mac iTunes software should I install on my iMac in order to allow the Windows PCs to access and use the iMacs iTunes library file?

Applications :: Migrate ITunes Library From Windows XP To MacBoo Pro.

Aug 7, 2010

I have searched and will search more.

I want to transfer my iTunes library from my PC to my MacBook Pro, and then set up my iPod Touch for the MackBook.

Most of the library is on a USB 1 terabyte drive. I am tempted to plug the USB drive into the MacBook and just copy my music directory over. Then make sure the path is set correctly on the MacBook's iTunes.

Is there a better way? I am wondering if this method will cause problems.

After I have transferred the library, I will deactivate my Windows XP pc in iTunes.

Applications :: Windows XP ITunes Doesn't See Library In External HD Via Airport Extreme?

Nov 24, 2010

I attached external hard drive to Airport Extreme, set up home network and mounted the hard drive. My MacBook Pro can see the drive and all contents, including iTunes library. Our home PC which is running Windows XP also recognizes the drive and can see iTunes library in My Computer. Here is the problem. When I try to chose which iTunes library to open (Shift+click) in Windows XP, the library on my external HD is not visible so I cant open it! I see the cover art and music folder, just not the actual library. What am I missing here? I can see it in My Computer, why not in iTunes?! I need to link my external library to XP. Connecting external directly to PC will not work because I have a Time Capsule there.

ITunes :: Importing Into ITunes -- Copy Files To ITunes Media Folder?

Dec 22, 2009

When importing songs into iTunes, the software by default is set to copy the music files to the iTunes media folder and convert them to .m4a format. This, of course, results in having two copies of each song after the import is done. Before I disable this option I'd like to know what you think are the pros and cons of having this option enabled/disabled.

I recently installed MacDrive on my Windows Vista X64 partition so that I could access my iTunes Library on my Mac partition. After installing iTunes on my Windows partition and pressing shift while it opened, iTunes asked me for an iTunes library file ending with the extension ".itl". Now, I do not have any files ending with this extension in my iTunes folder on my Mac partition. Is there anything I can do to make iTunes on Windows to read my music library on my Mac partition?

OS X :: Date Taken Field Not Shown On Importing Photos From Windows

Mar 22, 2010

I am fairly new to the world of mac's and I'm having a problems with my photo's. On my old windows PC I have 1000's of photo's. When I right click on a photo in windows and go to 'details' it will tell me the exact date and time when it was taken. So if I then import them into some library software such as picasa, it sorts it them all out by this date. However, I've now copied all my photo's to my new imac and the 'date taken' field doesn't seem to be there. When I import them into iphoto or picasa etc, they are totally messed up and all over the place.

Why did OSX loose that data? I will try to explain a little better using screenshots. This screenshot is from windows: [URL]. At the top is says 'date taken' and any windows photo library software will sort it by this date. Below are the properties of the same file after it's copied to osx: [URL]. It contains lots of information about the picture but not when it was taken. So software such as iphoto or picasa sorts it by it's created date (which you can see at the top is Monday 12th January). Why isn't OSX carrying over the exif data on when the photo was taken?

Applications :: Itunes Regarding Importing And Duplicates?

Jul 29, 2010

my library has some issues in that it does not register all of my songs in itunes

I know this as when I copied my entire folder to my macbook (minus the library and .xml files) I have a few hundred more songs than I do on my desktop

However, since I did not have the .xml and library folder carry over, I lost all my playcounts, playlists, dates, etc that I like to have.

Is there any way I can reimport my entire library and only add the songs that are not "seen" by itunes at the moment? FWIW, I have thousands of song files and I do not want to manually search for which ones show up in my mb library but not my desktops

ITunes :: Importing Old Folder To New Computer?

Mar 30, 2012

I have a MacBook Pro that I had four multi-user accounts on. One of them got corrupted, so that one was deleted and another account was opened. I want to get all the old iTunes songs out of the corrupted user folder and put them in the new account iTunes folder.Do I just drag the whole old iTunes folder into the Music folder of new user?letting it overwrite the existing iTunes folder? If I overwrite the new iTunes folder with the old iTunes folder, will it delete whatever I downloaded in the new iTunes since, or meld the old and new together? How do I keep from deleting newer songs and still keep the iTunes library or directories, or whatever, intact?

ITunes :: Skips One Song When Importing From CD?

Apr 18, 2012

Occasionally when I import a CD to my iTunes library via the File menu/Import CD on Snow Leopard; iTunes 10, iTunes appears to skip a song and no information appears when I enter the search terms in the search box. This happens even though all title information appears before I click "Import CD" and all the boxes are checked.I've found that if the CD is still inserted, I can import the songs to a single playlist by dragging the titles to it. So apparently the song did import, but for some reason doesn't appear in the library list.This isn't usually a problem, but I'd like to know why it happens and how to prevent it, since I'd rather have the complete information in my library.

ITunes :: Can't Join Tracks When Importing Cd

Apr 26, 2012

Always been able to 'join cd tracks' when importing an audio book. Half way through a book today the choice of joining greyed out and I can't figure out what happened. I have imported literally dozens of books doing this with no problem. I have also tried the solutions recommended on the discussion panel for Windows (got there accidentally) and none of them work. What's happening?
