OS X Mavericks :: Location Of ITunes / IPhone / Contacts Files

Aug 29, 2014

Recently switched computers to a MacBook Pro, and have my other iMac's desktop drive now in an enclosure.  It failed while inside the older machine, but seems to operate just fine as an external hard drive.  I would like to access the iTunes/iPhone recent backup/restore files, as well as the Contacts/Addressbook files.  I understand that, using the Finder's "Go," command, and holding the option key, present the crucially hidden "Library" folder... 

Can this be done with an external hard drive, therefore presenting the needed files for extraction, or "drag-and-drop" style, into appropriated folders?  If so, what commands would one use to show these files?  By simple navigation, they are not shown in the main Library- Application Support folders. (I was able to locate and transfer the regular iTunes Library .xml file, for Apps & Music; however, that isn't the iPhone backup files)

ITunes :: How To Import IPhone Contacts

Mar 6, 2012

Using iTunes, I imported my contacts from my iPhone to my Mac. What I should have done is choose the Selected groups option (because I just want my iPhone contacts) but by mistake I chose All contacts, with the result that I ended up with lots of unwanted contacts (e.g. from my work MS Exchange account). So I have deleted all the contacts from my Address Book and want to start the sync process again. 

I want to make sure I don't delete all my contacts from my iPhone. 

If I tick "Sync Address Book Contacts", "All contacts" (all other options are greyed out) and click "Sync", what will happen? Will the fact that I have deleted all the contacts on my mac wipe the contacts from my iPhone when I press Sync? 

If I uncheck the "Sync Address Book Contacts", I get a prompt telling me iTunes will no longer sync with my phone and asking me if I want to remove contacts previously synced to my iPhone. Out of caution I am choosing the option "Don't remove contacts".

ITunes :: IPhone 3G 4.2.1 Won't Sync Contacts On IMac 10.7.3 Nor ICloud

Apr 16, 2012

I have the latest OS X Lion (10.7.3) and iTunes. On iTunes the Sync to Contacts, Sync to Mail, Sync to Calendars and the notes in Others are checked but the boxes in Advanced are not. The iCloud is logged in (in System Preferences) with the default settings.   

If won't sync the contacts from the iPhone to either the Address Book in the iMac (late 2009 model) nor the one in iCloud. I've reported this at the iPhone Feedback page as a bug but I could be doing something wrong.

ITunes :: Could Not Sync Contacts To IPhone - Error Occurred While Committing Data

May 10, 2012

I recently replaced the HD in my MacBook Pro. Just after, I retrieved my old files from the Time Machine backup, which I made just before the replacement. During the first sync of my iPhone via iTunes and while I was trying to sync my contacts I saw the message "iTunes could not sync contacts to iPhone because an error occurred while committing data". After that, I lost my iPhone contacts (I have them only from iCloud). The only problem is contacts, all the others (Calendars, Apps) are normally syncing.

ITunes For Mac :: Location Of Various Music Files

Jun 30, 2014

I've recently purchased a MacBook Pro, I now wish to sort my music collection out and store all music on the network drive which can be accessed via the cloud, not apple cloud incidentally.   The thing is I have a variety if music files in various locations on the pc laptop, the old network drive.   Is there any way I can find the location of the music file through iTunes So I can locate it on the network drive and transfer to the new cloud drive?   I see there is a consolidate function in iTunes, would this do the job for me?

ITunes :: Locating Music Files In New Location?

May 19, 2012

I moved my iTunes Media folder to a second hard drive to free up space. I followed the Apple Support instruction for doing this. I have 200+ missing songs that I have to manually located.  

Is there a way to do a group rather than one song at a time? I have over 2,000 songs, podcast, and movies. I am surprised just these fews can't be located by iTunes after I made the move.

OS X :: Adding Files To ITunes...Does It Copy The Media? Or Just The Location?

May 22, 2010

I am still pretty new to Mac and OSX and i had a question about itunes.

Ok, So if i add say 1 album and 1 Movie. Lets say the the album is in My Music folder and the Movie is in My Movies folder.

Now if i go to add to library in iTunes and add them then i am done. If i go and delete the 2 files from the folders i notice that the album and movie is still in itunes and still playable? How is that if i deleted them from the folders on my Mac?

Does iTunes actually COPY the movie and music i add to its own folder? so that way if i do delete it from my mac, its still in a iTunes folder somewhere?

Like with windows, WMP copies the location of that media, So if i add a album and later delete it from my PC and go and try to play it in WMP, it will say NOT FOUND or just no longer show it.

Reason i ask this is because i do not want to have double of everything on my HD and take up more space then i should...

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.

ITunes For Mac :: Move Location Of Library Music Files From Time Machine

Jun 23, 2014

I want to move the location of my iTunes library music files. At present they are all on my time machine . I want to move them all to my imac. Can I do that and keep all my playlists and play counts?

its 1000s of songs . Originally I used the time machine as a networked drive but it can cause the songs to pause so I'm thinking it would be better to have the songs on the internal imac drive

how can I move the songs so I can re-open iTunes and the playlists (with plays in the 100s) find the song in the new place?

ITunes :: New Library Created New Music Subfolder And Imported Files Will Not Go Into New Designated Location?

Apr 13, 2012

I'm using iTunes 10.6 and Lion. i have a two problems. i recently moved my iTunes library to my portable hard drive. i have changed the new location under Preference/Advanced to "/portable drive/MUSIC". I have checked 'Keep iTunes Media folder organized" and unchecked 'Copy files to iTunes Media folder when adding to library. 1) After moving my music and and consolidating, some of my music are in the right  folder, which is in "/portable drive/MUSIC" folder, but a majority of the music are created into a NEW SUBFOLDER music folder. e.g.: /portable drive/MUSIC/music/  ?? Why is that happen and how can I move tell iTunes to just put it in the main and 1st MUSIC folder. Do you know why it creates a subfolder name music? 2) When importing new music, it doesn't automatically go into the designated folder but instead retains in the original folder that was imported from? e.g.: i import music from mac hard drive  into iTunes and when I click on Get Info on the track, the location is still at /my mac hard drive/duran duran instead of /portable drive/MUSIC/.   How do I get it to organized the music into /portable drive/MUSIC/

ITunes For Mac :: Media Folder Location Keeps Reverting To Old Location?

Sep 6, 2014

I moved my iTunes media folder to an external hard drive to free up space on my iMac's hard drive.  The new one is located on a hard drive attached to my Airport Express.  Since then, I keep getting messages stating that certain items weren't copied to my iPhone because the originals couldn't be found.  When I check, the iTunes media folder has reverted to the location on my iMac's main hard drive. 

How can I prevent this?  At best this is annoying, but it also is using up hard drive space unnecessarily.  Is this behavior avoidable, or is it something that goes with the territory when you move your media folder to an external hard drive?

OS X Mavericks :: Contacts App Has Suddenly Become Incapable Of Accessing Contacts In ICloud

Aug 22, 2014

It seems that the contacts app has suddenly become incapable of accessing my contacts in the cloud.  Its fine on icloud.com, its fine on my phone, and its fine on my ipads.  However, I'm getting an error message right now which I think must be to do with an update to Little Snitch which I did almost immediately before, and which necessitated a reboot.  Since the reboot, I am seeing the following

Of course, this also means Messages doesnt work. LS is not blocking any icloud things, and calendars and mail are still working with no issues.

Software :: Converting .mkv Files For ITunes/aTV/iPhone Compatibility?

Dec 27, 2008

Yes I know all about Visual Hub, Handbrake, ffmpegX, etc, etc...My question isn't about what tool should be used, but more along the lines of how to use that specific tool as effectively as possible, given that which is most important to me (which I've listed below)...

Without complicating the issue, consider this...

If you had 10 .mkv files (Matroska Multimedia Container files) ranging from 4GB - 7GB in size, and you wanted to convert these files so that they could be viewed in iTunes, on your Apple TV, and/or on your iPhone, how would you do it?

Additional criteria that matters to me:

I don't really care if the movies show up in ultra mega super-duper hi-def in iTunes or on my aTV, just so long as it looks pretty darn good I would really like to avoid having each of these files show up as 4GB m4p files on my iPhone, so that I can avoid having 3 or 4 measly movies taking up all the space on my device...My ideal size range would be anywhere between 500MB (on the very low end of the scale) and 2.5GB (on the very high end of the scale)...somewhere right in the middle would probably be best... I would like to have a single file that was compatible with all of my devices, as opposed to having an aTV version of a movie, and an iPhone version of the same movie

I'd really appreciate any help anyone can offer with this issue (which is completely subjective I realize...but for this reason, the more input the merrier)...and please be as specific as you can regarding the precise settings you would choose for your chosen app, and why you would use them?

I know how to do this about 10 ten ways, and that's the problem...I'd like to know "THE" way (that works best for me of course, and with your input, hopefully I can figure that out!)...

Software :: Files Disappearing After Copying / Newly Copied Files Missing From New Location

Dec 25, 2010

This only happens when she copies files between internal hard drives. After copying the files, she verifies that files exist in both locations. She then deletes the files in the old location. Then, newly copied files are missing from the new location.

I've never heard of this happening before, except for with improperly unmounted external drives. I have run disk utility and verified that there are no problems with either drive.

Software :: Files Disappearing While Copying / Newly Copied Files Missing From New Location

On several separate occasions, one of our users has had trouble with files "disappearing."

This only happens when she copies files between internal hard drives. After copying the files, she verifies that files exist in both locations. She then deletes the files in the old location. Then, newly copied files are missing from the new location.

Could anyone help explain why this is happening or how to prevent it?

MacBook Pro :: Added A New Network Location, & Now IPhone 4 Won't Connect To Wifi?

Apr 6, 2012

I've got a macbook pro which was working fine via wifi …. We had a power-cut last week and things have now gone rather mental. When trying to connect to the internet via wireless, it kept coming up with “Wi-Fi does not have an IP address and cannot connect to the Internet.”

So I ran a search on google on how to try and sort it. I followed the following instructions : Add a New Network Location & Renew DHCP LeaseLaunch “System Preferences” from the  Apple menuSelect the “Network” panelClick on the “Location” pull down menu and choose “Edit Locations…”Click on the + plus icon to add a new network location, give it a unique name, and click “Done”Back at the Network panel with the newly created location selected, click on “Advanced” in the bottom right cornerClick on the “TCP/IP” tabClick on “Renew DHCP Lease” and wait for the numbers on the left to repopulate, then click “OK”

I was absolutely thrilled as it worked!!! … and continues to work ... The only problem now is that my Macbook is the only one in the house that can connect to the internet wirelessly. When I try and connect my iPhone 4 it asks me for the Password then says “Unable to join network” and also my mums laptop refuses to join wifi …. She’s not happy with me as she now has to run it via ethernet. I tried to set up my iPhone manually, but with no joy as I'm not sure what I'm doing

ITunes :: Changing Storage Location With Media In The New Storage Location?

Jun 30, 2012

Equipment: Mac Mini (Early 2009), Intel Core 2 Duo, 2 GHz, 4 GB RAM, Lion. I started noticing my Mac Mini was having trouble reconnecting my Bluetooth mouse and keyboard, slow processing (spinning pinwheel of death), and programs freezing. I did a recovery within Lion from the recovery drive and it seemed to work for a week or so. It started acting up again. So, I decided to erase the HD and reinstall Lion. I basically use the Mac Mini as a server for all my iTunes content.  

My iTunes default save location is to my Drobo storage unit. Now that I have reinstalled Lion, I am looking for the easiest, most convenient, and safest way to change the default save location in iTunes and then importing the media. It would be nice if it was possible to just simply change the default save location to the folder I previously had all my media saved in and it would just magically appear in iTunes. Everything was organized perfectly, which took hours of time and attention to details.

OS X :: Sync Iphone Contacts To Mac?

Oct 26, 2009

I have an Iphone and I have a macbook pro. Now, I used to have at my work Hosted Exchange were all my contacts were on. Now, lost my job and now I want to delete the workaccount (mail). When I do that, my Iphone erases all my contacts on my iphone, which i don't want of course.

Now, what i did, I have tagged all the boxes in entourage to sync with Icall, etc. BUT when i do a sync from Itunes, it whipes away all my contacts again, because it probably takes it from the empty folders. So that's a big issue. I'm not able to get all my contacts into Entourage or I call. Normally when you put the cable in, it should sync everything from the iphone to your mac right? Well it doesn't. It doesn't even asked the question. I have no clue what to do anymore or how to get my contacts into my entourage, so i can make a new e-mailaccount (personal one) and link everything together.

Hardware :: Using Time Capsule To Store ITunes Files (IPhone Sync)

Jun 15, 2010

I have a macbook and an iMac, I am using a Time Capsule to store files that I may want to access on both (within the home). I have put all my iTunes on it as a 80g HD is not enough on a macbook for all the songs, vids, etc. It worked when a wired HD was with the iMac but now its wireless iTunes seems to forget some of the songs. Not all of them just some of them. It happens when I Sync my iPhone with the Macbook. The capsule has been on the whole time and I just leave it on all the time so its on before the macbook or imac. When I click "get info" the file path is the same as what I would manually enter, so why cant they be found?

OS X :: Two Finger Scrolling Like IPhone's Contacts?

Feb 21, 2009

After getting my Macbook Pro, I found out about the two finger scrolling feature on the trackpad and it had made browsing around a lot more easier.

While scrolling, it reminded me of my mother's iPhone scrolling while looking for contacts, where you do a finger gesture and it continues to scroll down even though your fingers are off it already.

Is there are feature to be used with the Macbook Pro's trackpad?

Edit: I think I found an existing answer after playing around with keywords in Google
