ITunes :: Adding New Song To Transfer List Stop The Previous Sync?
Apr 7, 2012
I have a problem with the song tranfert to my ipad 3 and my iphone. When I add new song to a current transfert list, itunes stop and delete the previous download and restart the sync. I think the problem is new because i haven't noticed it before.¬†
Is there anyway to prohibit ichat from posting up my current itunes song? It does it even without my asking. I switch my status to available which makes it go away until the next song comes up at which time it changes my status from available to the current itunes song. Any ideas?
Ok, a few months ago, I posted a problem concerning songs from my ipod that, when played in my car through the car's integrated cable, would suddenly stop playing, even though the song's title and counter were still showing on the dashboard screen. This happened with a 3 year old ipod. After taking the car into the dealer, they found no problem. Subsequently, when driving a loaner or rental, the same thing would happen when the ipod was hooked up with a Belkin cable. So, I bought a new ipod. Guess what? It still happened, AND in other cars. So then I bought a new car (not for this reason; it was just time!), and it still happened, BUT...now it's doing it when I have my iphone bluetoothed!! The songs playing are coming from my iphone, which is connected to the car through bluetooth. So, my thoughts are leaning toward something wrong with my songs, in itunes. This happens inconsistently, and not necessarily with the same songs.¬†
I've already spoken to 2 different people at Apple, spending hours on the phone.
I've been trying to figure out how to sort this for ages now, and I just can't get to the bottom of it to save my life. This is the situation. I've just downloaded an album, and it ended up in my Downloads folder, so I moved it to the desktop, then played one of the songs in the album. s soon as I played the song, it opened up in iTunes and then automatically added the song to the music library. I don't want it to do that, I've spent the last couple of hours sorting out my library, adding album artwork, name changes etc and the last thing I need is things getting automatically added to the music library and cluttering and messing things up.
i bought a song on itunes the other day and i realized that only the beginning half of the song will play and then it will stop for the other half and no sound will be coming out but it will still be playiny. how do i get a refund or how can i redownload the song on itunes?
When selecting a song to play from iTunes library, I continually get an error message indicating the original file could not be found. Then asks, would you like to locate it?I'm not even able to play the songs I purchased due to this error message.

So my dad is finally switching from his beloved gmail.com web app to Mail. There is just one problem. A bunch of his contacts that he normally emails are already in Address Book. However, Gmail has a list of about 300 people that he has emailed in the past. He probably still emails about 100 of them from time to time.. I noticed Mail.app has a "Previous Recipients" list, and you can delete entries from the list or add them to address book. Is there anyway I can manually add some of the email addresses from his Gmail account into that list? In Snow Leopard, the file seems to be located in ~/Library/Application Support/Address Book/MailRecents-v4.abcdmr
I know I can just export all the contacts and put them into Address Book, but he uses his address book's all contacts field on his iPhone, and I don't want to clutter that with those email addresses. Unless there is a way of making an entry that appears in a specific address book group, but not in all contacts.
We have had a software problem with my wife's mac. I set her up as a user on my iMac, then we wiped her machine and reconstructed. Here is the problem. On her laptop now, there are no previous recipients in Mail. As it turns out, she really needs these. They are on the iMac. I need to move that list from the iMac to her laptop.
I have looked in Library/application support, but can find no entry for Mail or Address book. I know that there must be a file somewhere with this data.
I have my own, private, Macbook Air which is not used by my spouse. As a result, I have only configured my own e-mail accounts on this machine. It runs OSX 10.9.4.¬†
We also have a family-used iPad, which is shared between multiple family members, including my spouse. It has multiple e-mail accounts configured, including mine and hers. None of us uses iCloud mail, just mail from external providers.¬†
My wife is used to the auto-fill in Mail on the iPad : Any recipient from the past is used to autocomplete. As a result, she never built an address book since typing most of the names or first characters of her contacts resulted in completing the full e-mail address. The iPad does have an iCloud-based address book configured, which only contains my personal contacts. This iCloud account is also configured on my MBA.¬†
During the past weeks I've put a lot of effort in cleaning up my Contacts, since they were swamped with outdated e-mail addresses. I also deleted the complete Previous Recipient list via Window/Previous Recipients, since outdated e-mail addresses were being suggested while they were removed out of my Contacts during clean up. I cleaned up the previous recipients list, assuming that applies only to the local Mail installation. But it does not.
Since the iCloud based contacts are shared between mail clients, the Previous Recipients list is as well, which was a nasty surprise. Apparently my wife can no longer experience any of her contacts being auto-completed on the iPad or other Macs in our house. This is a big issue (marital crisis) and I want to restore the previous recipients list. In the pre-iCloud days this was possible by restoring the correct file via Time Machine (which I use). But in the current iCloud days, the previous recipients list is, as far as I know, completely in the cloud. There is no (known) way for me to revert to a previous version.¬†
How to restore the iCloud-based previous recipient list? can I restore a local copy that overwrites/syncs correctly with the cloud-based copy?¬†
I have song compilation albums in itunes. I prefer to seach by Artist, not album. Compilation albums often assign a different artist for each song. I don't like this, as I end up with thousands of artists, each with only one song! Here's an example:
I copy "Classical Chillout" compilation album to itunes. 30 songs show up, each with their own (new) artist name, song name, and all within the album "Classical Chillout.
Instead of having:
SONG Adagio for Strings
ARTIST Samuel Barber
ALBUM Classical Chillout
I want to batch rename all songs so that the Album name becomes the Artist and each "Artist" name is inserted into the "Song" name
I know you can use iTunes dj to "play song next" or whatever but I don't like iTunes DJ for the fact that you don't have 100% control over what songs are playing if you want to pinpoint certain songs, etc..
Is there any way that I can line up a song to play after the current song without interrupting the current song and immediately playing the song I want next?
I purchased a song on itunes but only half the song downloaded. When I go to quick links and select purchase, I see the song as purchased but it wont download. It is behaving like a song you would listen to on itunes. It has the arrow with blue back round still. What can I do to get my song completely downloaded.
This is SO frustrating.¬† I bring in my new iMac for the techs to move my iTunes over, I bring it home and have not been able to listen to one song.¬† I double click on it and it says "Cannot find file, locate?"¬† I say yes, it brings me to the album artwork. I am not at all comfortable yet with the iMac environment so need step by step instructions!¬†
I cannot play a song on itunes by double clicking the song. I can only play a song by fast forwarding or fast backing from the original song played to the next song I want to play. I can then hit play and the song will play. what is my problem other than general ineptitude?
I want my Mac to stop opening all previous files when,say, opening an application such as Word or Pages.†I want I want my Mac to stop opening all previous tabs when opening Safari from new.†I looked in applications' Preferences and Mac System Prefs
I am a Mac new-boy (3 weeks total Mac ownership in 3 days time) and I have happened upon another situation, in which I would like advice. How do I add things to the right-click list. Specifically when I have a screen-grabbed file, or other text/picture hanging about on my desktop which( contrary to my PC ownership experience of the last nearly 20 years) I have become quite fastidious about keeping icon free and want to put it into my documents how do I set up such an occurrence so the option for it is found on my right-click menu? How do I add a send to documents option to my right-click menu?
I have a decent size music library(40+gig) on my late MB and i find that iTunes is slow to load when I open it and sometimes when im clicking around songs there is a half second pause before the song is highlighted and then starts to play. Since the program is pulling the info off the HD im thinking that if i got a higher capacity 7200 rpm drive that this would help (currently my stock 150gig only has 50gigs left) with this stutter or would upgrading to 4gig ram?
This is my biggest software design pet peeves. I hate when applications make too many choices for the user. Don't get me wrong, I don't like when a program asks the same question over and over again either. So I'm using firefox and I had about four or five windows open. And it froze up for over five minutes so I force killed it. When I opened it again it automatically tried to open all those websites I had open before - all at the same time. This isn't even a bug, it's the designers bad choice. I don't even need them open. I was only still using one. And I don't know which one caused the freeze (probably a flash heavy website like abercrombie) but I certainly don't want to open that one again. I'm trying to get Firefox to not do this anymore.
I'd like to add more then 10 items to my recent application stack list - any terminal script that can implement this - ideally I'd like 20 items in the list. To avoid confusion the screenshot is the stack list I am referring to.

I was reviewing audio books on my wish list and the list just became empty.¬† I have stopped and restarted iTunes and I have manually re-logged into my apple account but the list keeps coming up empty.¬† I have tried both the shortcut on the top right and from the drop down on the top left but nothing.¬† Is this a temporary issue with Apple..I'm on a Mac running OS10.9.4 and iTunes 11.3.1¬†
