I resently bought a song on itunes and it wont play on my computer, a message pops up and says that i cant play songs on this computer and asks me to authorize the computer, after i type in my info another message pops up and says that the computer is already authorized, i have the most recent version of itunes and the song will still not play.
I wonder how I can recover the music and Apps that I already bought from iTunes store. I lost my iPod and I want to check for the music and the Apps I bought since I am thinking in buying a new iPod, but there are not in my iTunes. I tried all I could try to get them back but nothing. I check the list of the thing I bought from Apple Store through iTunes and some of the music and Apps are in the list, couldn't find how to downloads again, but not all the music or Apps were there.
Info: MacBook Pro (15-inch Mid 2009), Mac OS X (10.6.8), iTunes version 10.6.3
I recently got a new iMac and find to my chagrin that I cannot open any of the music I bought under two older emails whose passwords for my apple id at that time I cannot remember. This seems completely unfair. I have spoken to apple and they have given up. The files are still in my music library, but the new iMac is not "authorized" to open them. Only files I have bought in the last few years will open.
...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 transferred all my itunes library to an external hard drive.I had all my songs in itunes and then went to "preferences" and set itunes to look on my external hard drive for my itunes. Then I went to "library" and then "consolidate", and it moved all my library over to my external. I can verify that my songs are all there on my externalHowever, now, itunes won't play any songs of mine. I double click on the song in itunes and it just wont play. There's no error message, there's no exclamation point, it just won't play. Any idea what is goign on? Preferences still shows that my library is directing to the external
I've recently copied some cassette tapes onto the computer (using Audio Hijack Pro) as mp3 files. *None* of those longer than a minute and nineteen seconds will play past that point in iTunes on Lion. They show up as their proper length (and are *not* set to cut short in options), but playing them, they just skip to the next song at 1:19 as if they'd finished, no error or anything. If I drag the slider to a point past there, the counters stop at that point and it starts the next song when I release it. The files play perfectly well if I press the spacebar in Finder, or if I open them with Quicktime Player, or if I use my iPod Touch, or if I use iTunes in Windows XP, but not on the Mac. Every last one of them... and no others. Older tracks play perfectly, regardless of source or format.
All software is the latest version available. (Within reasonable meanings of "latest" for XP, at least.)
I'll be going thru my list clicking a bunch of songs, say making a playlist for example, and often when I click on a song, it gets renamed (artist, song, album). 90% of the time, the song/album gets changed, but the artist stays the same. But sometimes it changes it to something new altogether. The kicker, though, is that the new song/artist/album is ALWAYS a duplicate of something I already have. This has happened without me clicking on songs as well. I just went to Show Duplicates and iTunes it appears iTunes has renamed about 200 of my songs. Often I don't even know what song I'm hearing, and if the lyrics aren't on google, I have to leave the song and artist as UNKNOWN. This problem has only started in the last few months.
I noticed this about a year ago. So, there are some songs that I cannot play in iTunes, on either my laptop or home computer. However, I can play them on my iPhone 3GS and my 3rd Generation iPod after being sync'd. A friend thought that it was perhaps these songs/albums were not "official" Apple iTunes downloads or not direct downloads from CDs. This is not correct, random songs from random mp3 sources including iTunes (Apple iTunes Store), and even complete albums (from CDs) are affected. Why is this? how can I correct this?
I'm still learning new things with my MBP. I have some mp3s placed on the desktop and I know there's a play arrow in the middle and I can play them. Well I stumbled upon a way to play the song without iTunes opening, but it had what looked like a real music player with play, FF, RW. I'm guessing I used some finger gesture to get it to do that, anybody know how I can recreate it? I tried searching, but can't figure it out. As I said, still learning all the cool tricks with the Mac! Anyways, to clarify, it did NOT open iTunes, but had an mp3 player. Also, it was not quicktime player. It was bigger than just a tiny rectangle with RW, Play, and FF. No software was opened, but there was still a big rectangular box that opened.
I am unable to play certain songs since itunes wants me to authorize the computer with an old email address I had when I first bought the songs. I don't remember that password and when I use my present Apple id and password it doesn't authorize the computer to play those songs. How do I get these songs authorized since there are a lot of them?
I have been trying to import music from an audio CD into my itunes library.All the files appear to be imported but all the timings are missing and when I try and play, the play symbal jumps about from one track to another and won't play any of them.This is about the third time I have tried to import it.he CD will play on an up to date CD player.
why is my iTunes not playing any of my songs in my song library and when i click any song, it tells me the song could not be used because the original file found not be found and will also asked me if i would like to locate?
Downloaded an album from iTunes, and it plays all songs except one. Error message says that I need to authorize the computer. It is already authorized, but even when I re-key the user name and password I refuses to play that one song.
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?
this is starting to bug me, so hope you can help. Currently, I only have a 16GB iPhone, and so in order to get my music on there, I have to select the 'only import checked songs' and select them on my iTunes playlist.However, when I'm listening to music on my iMac, I cannot listen to an un-checked album, it just skips over to the next checked song. Is there something really simple I'm missing here? Is there an option to play all songs, regardless of whether they're checked or not? Or is there a better way to sync my music? This is doing my head in.
not sure if this question belongs in the applications section, but I have a problem/question with Itunes. I have all of my music on an external hard drive. How can I get Itunes to play the songs directly off of the external hard drive without copying every song onto my computer's hard drive?
I have done this:
1. File > Add to Library > Selected my external hard drive to add everything on it to my library
Result: At first it says 'Adding Files: Processing...' That process takes a few minutes considering I have a lot of songs. Then it says "There is not enough room to copy all of your songs onto the Mac OSX Hard Drive, but iTunes will copy as many songs as possible." or something along those lines. So then iTunes starts copying every single song from my external hard drive onto my computer's hard drive.
2. File > Import > Selected my external hard drive
Result: All of my songs are in hundreds of different folders for each album and artist they are in from when I imported those songs from my CDs. I cannot select my external hard drive as a whole, meaning I would have to go into each folder individually and manually (which would be ineffective and take hours) in order for the itunes library to have all of my songs.
Is there another way to do this without filling my computer's hard drive up with songs?!
I want to burn some songs for a friend with iTunes 10.6.1 that will work on her CD player. I am new to this, and the CD-R I made this morning will work on my Mac and Windows computer, but not the CD player. How do I troubleshoot this?
I am using iToons !0.6.1(7) on a MacBook Pro Running OSX 10.7.4.I cannot get my playlist to play the songs sequentially.All songs are checked, the suffle is off, and there is nothing in the info. For example, when I try to play the first song it just skips to the second. Sometimes it skips many tracks.The songs in my playlist were ripped from my CD.
Info: iPhone 4S, Mac OS X (10.7.3), iMessage, iPhone
