OS X :: Genius Is Taking Ages To "send Information To Apple"?

Sep 10, 2009

Since Genius Mixes we're announced yesterday, I wanted to try them. I downloaded iTunes 9, and saw that in the Genius section of the left-hand side toolbar, Mixes was not listed. So I turned Genius off and then on. I got the start-up dialogue, I was prompted for my password and I accepted the terms of service. Then it went onto the list of steps. It completed step 1 in less than a second but then it goes onto step 2 and that never ends! It gets stuck there.

PS: I've restarted my Mac and installed all the software upgrades. but still no success.

OS X :: Genius Versus Genius Mixes - Finding Difference

Oct 29, 2009

I keep reading about this new ability to do "Genius Mixes".

On my iPhone I click the Genius icon (which is too large IMHO) and it makes a playlist. Are Genius Mixes any different?

I have Genius playlists on my ipad2 that I do not want. I would like to get rid of all Genius suggestions and have viewed many suggestions; one being to go to the store tab and click turn off genius.

ITunes :: Genius Not Working With New Songs?

Apr 7, 2012

I got iTunes match just before Christmas 2011 and also for Christmas I got a few CDs, these were all added to iTunes and everything seemed to be fine. I would try an use genius to get a random playlist but most of the time it would just say: "You can update your Genius results, which may find new information. If iTunes is still unable to create a Genius playlist from this song or artist, please choose another one."  

So I'd pick another song and forget about it. I've been adding music to my iTunes for the last few months and today I went through every new song since adding iTunes Match and not one will work with Genius.  

I know there have been issues with iTunes Match and Genius on iOS devices but I can't find anything on problms with the Mac. 

Any thoughts on what is going on and how to fix it?

Applications :: Genius Feature In ITunes - Exact Usage?

Mar 20, 2010

I've never even turned on the genius feature in iTunes, because I was put off by the link to the store. I have no intention whatsoever of buying anything from the iTunes store, though I do have an account cause I had to buy something else online. Here's my strong suspicion about Genius - that it's really there just to sell you crappy tracks from iTunes. And I have no use for that noise.

But, I like to keep an open mind. What if I'm wrong, and what if it's actually a cool feature? I remember not being sure about the shuffle function, since I like to listen to albums, so for the longest time I didn't use it. But one day I gave it a go, and what do you know. I liked it, for the most part! Here's one additional complication - I got like 50,000 songs in my library and I listen to all kinds of genres. Tell me about Genius - how do you use it?

ITunes :: ITunes Not Reading Any Of Track Info

Oct 31, 2009

I have a lot of CD's that are compilations made in my friend's iTunes, but for some reason my ITunes is not reading any of the track info. My buddy says this is a very rare event for him and no suggestions as why I am not getting the track info. I've already tried unchecking the "search the internet for info" option.

ITunes :: It Get CD Info Then CD Disappears?

May 10, 2012

OS 10.6.8 with iTunes 10 I have been importing my CD collection into iTunes for about the past month. i have already imported over 500 CD's with no problems.This morning I have a new problem, I insert the CD, iTunes accesses Gracenotes to get the CD info. If there's only one choice of CD info the CD immediately disappears from iTunes and the desktop. If there is more than one choice of CD info as soon as I pick one the CD disappears from iTunes and the desktop.

In either case I can eject the CD with the eject button on my keyboard and when I reinsert it it comes up in iTunes with all the CD and track info I previously selected and then I can import.Why does the CD disappear the first time? I have unchecked and checked preferences in iTunes to "show CD when inserted" as it has always been.One thing I should mention is that right before this behavior started happening I checked and repaired disc permissions for my HD, could this have anything to do with it?

Applications :: Getting ITunes And TV Shows And Their Info

Sep 28, 2010

I have a large collection of ripped (TV-on-DVD that i own) mp4s. I want to add these to my iTunes library (space is a non-issue). I import them by adding them to the "automatically add to iTunes" folder. iTunes auto-magically adds them to the "Movies" section. At this point i can group-select, hit cmd-I, and change them to TV Shows. Easy! The only other piece of meta-data I would like to add is the episode number. Is there a quick way to do this? Or do i have to hit cmd-I, add episode #, hit OK button, select next episode, repeat....?

OS X :: ITunes Missing Track Info?

Oct 20, 2010

I have been using iTunes with PC for about 5 years or more and never really had any problems ripping my CD collection, even when I switched at one point to using dbpowerAMP and then importing into itunes manually. I'm using itunes to rip again now.

Now I have my first mac (mac mini 2010). I am starting to import parts of my CD collection that I never had room for on my old notebook PC.

So before I went to bed last night I tried to rip and import 3 CDs using itunes exclusively now to do the ripping because I have come to the realization that itunes plus AAC is good enough for my ears and especially my equipment (ipod classic 160gb & Senn PX-100's). Now these 3 CDs I know for a fact the iTunes Store sells and definitely has the artwork and track info for.

Well, the first 2 CDs loaded artwork and track info fine after I remembered to check in the settings about the artwork anyway..

Then comes the 3rd and newest CD I tried, Eagles OF Death Metal's "Heart On". I stick it in the mac mini's slot *giggles* and then the iTunes pane at the top center of the screen keeps scrolling and saying something like "searching for grace-note whatever".. Then after about 2 or 3 minutes of that it just gives up and acts like it doesn't know the CD and lists the songs as "track 1, track 2" etc..

Now this CD is immaculate. It has been ripped before on my PC with no problem. I double checked to make sure the iTunes store sells it because in the past I've had to download my own artwork if it's something they don't sell in their store.

So I'm at a loss here I don't want to have to enter all this info manually as I have about 500 CDs to rip and only being on number 3 I didn't know if it was just this one being trouble, or what to expect how many are going to do this?

OS X :: Changing Song Info Without ITunes?

Dec 7, 2009

I'm sure this is a ridiculously easy thing to do, and that I'm just being exceptionally stupid, but I've not been able to figure it out, and Google is as unhelpful as ever.

As a new PC to Mac convert, occasionally I stumble on something in OS X that baffles the heck out of me, and inevitably discover that it's typical ex-Windows stupidity on my part, and I'm hoping this is just another example of that. I'm looking for a means of changing song information (track number, album, year, genre, &c), without having to use iTunes. I hate iTunes at the best of times, and really don't relish the thought of being forced to use it every time I want to switch two letters of a mislabelled album title or re-number a track (I should also point out, my iTunes library is taken from an external harddrive for the sole purpose of putting that music on my iPod (the only reason why I use iTunes), whereas the songs I want to relabel are on my MBP's harddrive for the purpose of listening to from the computer itself, and are currently not in my iTunes library in any form, nor do I wish to put them there).

In Windows, you could just pull up the file information and change track number, album, year, &c &c &c from within Explorer... but when I try to do the same in OS X by hitting "more info" in Finder, there's no option to change any of the details I'm after. Is there a simple way of doing this that I'm just blindly missing by sheer stupidity, or does song information have to be edited through iTunes or not at all?

OS X :: ITunes Song Info Drop Down?

Jan 4, 2010

I lent my old MacBook to my brother for awhile. I have it back now and iTunes is doing something peculiar, and I can't figure out how to make it stop. Every time a new song starts to play a little black box drops down out of the right hand side of the taskbar with the song name and info. It's just a minor annoyance, but I'd really like to figure out how to make it stop. I can't seem to find any program or anything that is making it happen and my brother says he doesn't know what he did. Hopefully this picture will make things more clear.

ITunes :: Can't Change Billing Info

Feb 9, 2012

I just moved back from USA to Norway and I need to change my country and billing information. iTunes is denying me this because I still have store credit on my american account. It's just $0.28 left and there is really nothing I can buy. My american visa is terminated so I can't buy anything with greater value that the credit I have left.

ITunes :: Change Tag Info On Songs?

Feb 12, 2012

A few of the thousands of songs I have loaded into iTunes don't have track numbers embedded in their tags. 

I've just migrated from PC to Mac and have a nice new MBP and am discovering a few differences between the two platforms. grrr 

I want control of tags - is this possible. When I get "info" for a particular song their is no reference to track numbering available? 

There are other things I'd like to be able to tweak as well. Like just pulling up a particular genre - I used Media Centre on my PCs and had amazing control of everything. It behaved like a well constructed database.

ITunes :: Changing Info About Songs

Apr 28, 2012

I was trying to change the info on all the songs in my iTunes library yesturday to try and get all the songs from some albums to be together rather than seperated when different artists were performing by changing them all to 'Various'.  Unfortunatly I typed 'Various' into the Album box by mistake and now all my songs have the same album name.  Is there any way of undoing my mistake or am I going to have to go through all 17 days worth of somgs and change them individually?  I haven't got a recent back up off my computer, but I do have quite alot of the music stored on either my iPad or my iPhone

Applications :: Where ITunes Library Info Stored

Feb 14, 2009

I have just had occasion to restore the disc containing my XP operating system (yes, I am a PC person too). iTunes Library is stored on a big FireWire box, and was not restored.

The date of my last XP backup was 19/1/09, and iTunes Library knew of nothing I had done since that date, in other words, the song tracks are kept in the iTunes directory, but the library clearly isn't. This is really strange. All the tracks I had added were there in the iTunes library physical directories, but their importing into the library had disappeared. As had some Smart Playlists.

So where is the library actually stored? I note that there are some odds and ends of unrecognizable stuff along with the executable in the XP Programs... directory, presumably this stuff includes the library?

Just to clarify. The executable is on my C drive in the default location, and the iTunes library is on H:iTunes.

I was exchanging music with a friend who has the Zune software on his computer.And there was one thing that I would really like that his software had, and that was the Find Album Info.

This was able to simply find album artwork, track names and other details for the music.So my question is, is there any additional software for iTunes that does something like this?
