OS X :: Transferring ITunes Content To New Account On Same Computer?

Feb 9, 2010

I recently had to create a new account (admin) because of problems with the old one. I've now been using the new account with no problems for a few weeks, and am ready to ditch the old one completely. I've got everything organised except my iTunes content. iTunes on the new account behaves as if there's nothing there, so I can see I've got some work left to do.

I authorised iTunes on the new account for both the iTunes store (was told it already was authorised) and for my [URL] account. I changed permissions to read and write for everyone on iTunes in the old account, but that didn't help anything.

Is there a simple way to do this? Once this is transferred I want to delete the old account completely, so setting content up to share isn't the best solution for me.

ITunes :: Hacked Itunes Account And Downloaded In-app Content?

Apr 3, 2012

I don't usually check my itunes account, but today I actually decided I wanted to buy music. I put a $100 gift card I got from buying a Mac for college in a few months ago, and bought like $9 worth of stuff and just left it idle. It says that about 2 weeks ago there were purchases made to download an app and then some gem **** (in app content) that cost $80 ******* dollars that was bought. I'm not worried about my personal information because i don't use a legitimate adress and only buy gift cards, because I like to live off the apple grid i guess...w/e, WHO DO I EMAIL TO GET THAT MONEY BACK!!!

ITunes :: Can't Log Into Account Information Or Purchase Content

Mar 19, 2012

I'm on my 14th email to iTunes support and after 14 days of not being able to log into my iTunes account, I'm getting a bit desperate. Every time I log in, I'm redirected to the login screen that asks for my account name and password. I've reset my password 4x and Apple has done it twice. Still no change. I'm not getting any response that my password is wrong and I'm allowed to fill in my credentials as many times as I want. It's just redirecting me to the login screen and asking me again. If I log out and back in, it tells me after login that I need to press "ok" to verify my account information, after which it redirects me to... the login screen.

ITunes :: Transferring Library From Old Computer To New

Nov 6, 2010

I had ITunes on Win XP, desktop. All my selections have been downloaded to my IPOD. Have now purchased new laptop but had problems transferring ITunes library from old computer to new so just recreated Library from scratch on new laptop by copying my CD's but did not have all CD's as some were borrowed. In other words, I now have songs on my IPOD (and on old desktop) that I was not able to reload onto the Laptop.

I want to make sure that when I plug my IPod (which now has all the songs on it from my desktop) into the laptop, I don't lose those that are not in my Laptop library. Do I have to upload into the laptop from the IPOD those which have not been duplicated? Or make CD's of the songs on the desktop that I couldn't load in, and upload them to the laptop?

ITunes For Mac :: Transferring Library To A New Computer - Error (-50)

Dec 3, 2014

I recently purchased a Retina iMac running OS 10.10.1.   My previous computer is a Mac Pro (2006) with 10.7.5 (latest OS it will support).  The Mac Pro has iTunes 12.0.1 with the database files on the system hard drive and the media files on a secondary internal hard drive.  getting my iTunes library on to the new iMac. 

Migration Assistant doesn't work.

Open Migration Assistant on the iMac and it finds the Mac Pro and offers a code which should be verified on the Mac Pro.  Open Migration Assistant on the Mac Pro and tell it to "Transfer to another Mac" and get the spinning gear.  Left it on all night, they never connected. 

Consolidating my iTunes library back to the Mac Pro system hard drive doesn't work.

Following the directions from Apple Support, I pointed my current copy of iTunes (on the Mac Pro) to the default Music folder in order to consolidate the library all in to one folder so that I could transfer it at once to the iMac (iTunes > File > Library > Organize Library).  After about 20 minutes I got an error message: "Copying files failed. An unknown error occurred (-22)".  I assume there is one or more files screwing this up, but can't figure out which one(s). 

Simply copying the entire iTunes media folder over my network from the Mac Pro to the iMac doesn't work.

Error (-50) and the copying fails before it gets more than 50 mb.  I'm currently attempting to copy one folder at a time.  But I don't assume that I'll be able to rebuild my old library on the new machine this way. 

The current iTunes library is about 250 GB.  It is slow, but works on the old machine.

Software :: ITunes Is Not Opening/different Account On Computer?

May 21, 2010

Here is my problem, iTunes does not open for me. It bounces for a while, and stops bouncing, but does not open. I open the Force Quit window, and it says iTunes is open, even though iTunes does not have a shining circle next to it. I force quit it, and after about 5 minutes, iTunes is gone from the Force Quit window. I tried removing the preferences and receipts for iTunes, reinstalling iTunes, repairing permissions, and repairing my hard drive, but nothing seems to work. iTunes does work on a different account on my computer, so the problem must be with my account.

I am using Mac OS X 10.5.8 and iTunes 9.1.1.
