...now I don't have the same functionality with iTunes. Basically, I can't use iTunes at all anymore as the interface for my music and videos. Once the external drive is mounted, I can navigate through it and play individual songs, but I can't use iTunes to do that. All my previous Playlists show up down the left side of iTunes, but there isn't any music in them.
I downloaded 2 songs yesterday, made a Playlist out of them, and because the path in the Advanced tab of the iTunes Preferences is correct, it automatically added the songs to the external hard drive. I synced my iPod and it was completely erased except for the 2 new songs. Is there a way to use iTunes to navigate my music like I used to when I stored the information on the internal hard drive but keep the information on the external drive? I have a Mac running Snow Leopard and the latest version of iTunes.
I just purchased a new Imac and am looking to sell my old 17 white intel Imac. I have all the updated software(snow leopard, Ilife 09). I was going to sell on craigslist to stranger but now looks like a family member will buy. What is the best way to delete my info but being able to keep 3rd party programs and music on the machine. Also if I just choose to do a complete install instead do I use the snow leopard disc or the disc that came with the machine which it had Tiger on it.
At the moment most of my music is either stored on my Macbook or on an external hard drive. Is it possible to transfer all my music and videos to an external hard drive and then sync it with Itune so that every time I plug it in I can access them?
I have transferred my itunes music on to my external HD. The music is there and that is fine. I then deleted the old itunes folder from my actual HD. I have now wanted to access the music on the external HD, and have attempted to select the new music file location on the external HD via the itunes/preferences/advanced window,selected the new file path and it will just not show in itunes!
I used to have all my data on my MacBook and since I bought the Air I started transferring everything to it. Everything was fine until I tried to hook my iphone on the usb and sync it. The iphone drops the connection with the itunes and the whole syncing progress cancels. I've tried every possible advice I found in other forums but nothing worked. I uninstalled and reinstalled itunes, I tried installing earlier version of itunes, I restored my iphone (on my other mac), I manually deleted some itunes program files before reinstalling the new itunes....nothing nothing nothing. I keep getting error messages like:
"ITunes could not connect to the iphone because the pairing record is missing" "Application AppleMobileDeviceHelper quit unexpectedly" "ITunes could not connect to iphone because an invalid response was received from the device" And every time i try to restore iphone from the air i get an error(6).....
While everything works great on the old Macbook, the Macbook Air seems to have problems connecting with the phone. The funny thing is that even if the connection between iphone and itunes drops, I can still manage to "see" the iphone from "iphoto" and import pics on my Air. I really don't know what's going on here and there seems to be no one that knows what I should do. Furthermore, when i plug my scanner on the air, it doesn't respond at all. It's as if the usb slot ain't powerful enough to connect with those devices. The scanner also works great on my old Macbook.
i am trying to make a compilation in itunes as a christmas present..i was hoping to create a whole new "album". but every time i try it either 1. puts the songs in alphabetical order 2. changes the original album file. Is there a program out there i can use to create a digital compilation? I have a hankering to make a mixed tape - but somehow do it in the digital age.
I have some old music that I bought under an old iTunes account and it asks me for my password to play the music. That account is no longer active, how do I list the music under my new account so I can play it?
After reverting back to my old ID (url...), I cannot get the screens to change to allow me to log in with this apple ID. I have gone to the apple store to log in with this ID, changed the log ins at the apps and iTunes icon login screens, and zapped the PRAM. Yet, my old ID, digidov, still pops up.
I am living in South Korea, and have been collecting Korean DVDs for the last year. I'm planning on leaving Korea, and would like to take my collection with me, so I don't have to deal with the region coding issues back home.
I have used Handbrake to rip a couple of my DVDs with subtitles embedded, but I would like to get them into .avi files for easy use with USB ports on DVD players back home.
Is there a way to get Handbrake to rip the DVDs into .avi format? or do I need another program to convert/compress them into .avi? Is there a good freeware program to convert/compress?
I have a question about using my new samsung tv as a monitor for my macbook. I have all the cables and such and my TV reads the computer. It actually shows the desktop background, mouse, and the toolbar on the tv... BUT....when i try and open a program such as safari or itunes it does not display the program on the monitor but rather on my macbook screen. It shows the program open on the tv monitor but it shoots off the screen and then opens on the macbook screen.
Also the mouse disappears from the tv monitor screen on the left side only, and when it does it becomes visible back on the macbook screen! Any tips or suggestions on how to get the programs to show up on the monitor instead of the macbook screen?
I am running Windows XP on my desktop. I have been using Itunes for years and it has worked fine till about two weeks ago. I had been having issues with my computer being very slow so I began using several freeware programs to clean up my computer. I used Repair Doctor, AVG PC Analyzer, PC Pitstop, Glary Utilities, and Advanced System Care. I discovered that ITunes was no longer usable after using AVG PC Analyzer. I have gone back and reversed all the changes that I made using PC Analyzer and have also used Windows System Restore to go back to a time previous to most of the clean up activities. I have uninstalled ITunes several times and then reinstalled using various combination of installing ITunes and QuickTime. QuickTime is working fine, but ITunes is not working. I click on the ITunes icon and nothing happens.
My church is in the process of opening a coffeehouse to the public, in order to support some of our projects, and in order to do so, we will need to keep track of all sales for tax purposes. I'm looking for a simple point-of-sale freeware to do this. Can anyone point me in the right direction.

I have a new-to-me MacBook (running Lion) and I just downloaded all my music into iTunes. I had been sync'd with an old PC laptop previously. If I choose to sync my iPhone (4S) with iTunes on the MacBook, will it delete my apps and data (as the warning in iTunes leads me to believe)? I do use iCloud backup on the iPhone, and I've got all kinds of apps installed (and arranged to my liking). What's the best way to have my music sync with the MacBook without having to reinstall my apps?
find some burning software or freeware . Also the software that gives you the specs of your battery and one that tells you about the wi-fi signal if it is strong or weak . And any other free stuff that I should have for the mac..
(1)Are there any particularly good Mac freeware program websites (and, alternatively any that are best avoided)?
(2)The system on my ibook G4 is Tiger 10.4.11 - can I only use programs that specifically say they are for 10.4.11, or I am correct in thinking that any program said to be for 10.4 will work on 10.4.11?
Also, would a program said to be for the Tiger 10.4 range work on the versions before mine (e.g., 10.1 Puma) and after mine (e.g., 10.5 Leopard)? For example, on the Truecrypt website it says the 'latest Stable Version - 6.2a' is for 'Mac OS X 10.4 and 10.5', so I assume this will work on my 10.4.11 system. However, for example, if it only said '10.5', I assume I should not download/install this for Tiger?
