OS X :: How To Drag Downloaded Program To App Folder
I have downloaded two programs "Skype" and printer driver software and no matter how many times I click and drag to the applications folder (as my instructions tell me to do) the programs remain on the top right hand of my desktop. I have tried using "Help" and even surfed some of the Apple all counts I have found I am doing it correctly but its not working.

ITunes :: Using Itunes To Play Music From External Drive / Playlists Show No Music File 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.

ITunes Mac :: Music Folder Versus ITunes Music Folder?
I was going through my music today and saw that inside my music folder is the itunes music folder. Can I delete everything but my itunes folder from my music folder? Does that make sense? It seems like they are all duplicates and if the songs are already in the itunes folder, do I need them also in my regular music folder? Doesn't this take up more space?

ITunes Mac :: ITunes Frequently Loses Links To Music In Music Folder?
I have been using iTunes for years on my iMac - through the various versions - and have always experienced this never-ending problem.(Not just me. My roomate, too, finds this same annoying issue on his Ẉindows iTunes install !): Here is what happens: periodically (about once a month or so)iTunes seems to lose its brains and it loses links to music files that are still in the proper music folder, right where they should be. The iTunes window then shows these broken links as ✓-checked files. Then I have to manually re-find the file for iTunes via the "Find Info" dialogue to un-select the lost tunes and have them available again in the app.

I've tried to fix this in a couple of ways, unsuccessfully :(1) "Restore" my iPod; (2) re-import all songs to iTunes library.

ITunes :: Downloaded An SD Version Of 1080p TV Show?
I am a UK customer, and last night I purchased Top Gear India Special on my iPad, and I chose to download the 1080p version. I'm just wondering why iTunes hasn't downloaded an SD version as well as the HD version, like it always has done previously? I am unable to watch the India Special on my MacBook as iTunes says "This movie requires QuickTime, which is not supported by this version of iTunes."

ITunes Mac :: Why Downloaded TV Show Not Appeared In Library?
I purchased a Season Pass and successfully downloaded the series directly to Apple TV. ITunes has sent me two Season Pass Notifications for new episodes. After downloading these episodes on my Computer, they do not appear anywhere in iTunes. I've tried searching for the show using OSX Spolight without success. When check for available downloads within iTunes, I get a message that all shows have been downloaded. I want to watch these new episodes on my iPod.

Applications :: TV Show Downloaded From ITunes - Only Audio No Visual
I downloaded my first TV show from iTunes for the first time the other day. But, sadly, when I go to play it, all I can get is the audio and absolutely no visual. Nothing happens. Am I doing something wrong? I have iTunes version 9 and use Mac OSX, version 10.5.8. I've already tried downloading the latest version of Quicktime to see if that would help but to no avail.

ITunes Mac :: Bring Video Clips Together Just Like Downloaded TV Show?
I have a series of short videos which are currently in iTunes. Each clip is a separate file but from a series. The files are separately sectioned within iTunes and not under a single entity, like a TV Show is if you download the entire series. I have put in groupings, artist etc, to sort them together, but I was wondering if there was anyway of bring them together under 1 banner, just as if it was a TV Show.

ITunes :: Can't Play Any Of Music Have Downloaded

ITunes Mac :: Music Folder Within My Music Folder
Just upgraded to a new Mac Pro, and moved all my music over. I was combing through my music folder when I noticed that I have a Music folder within my Music folder. I moved all the music out and re-added it to my library in iTunes, but when I went back to my Music folder, iTunes had re-created the Music folder again. I have iTunes set to keep my music organized, but I can't figure out why iTunes keeps putting a Music folder within my Music folder.

There also seems to be no rhyme or reason to what gets put in there. Some is purchased, some ripped and some downloaded appear in both the top level Music folder and the extra Music folder.

Anyone know why iTunes is doing this?

ITunes Mac :: Itunes Using Music And Tunes Folder For Music...
everything has been fine and all my music is normally located and imported to
/users/userid/music/itunes/itunes media/

normally all my music goes into the /tunes folder
but for some reason some of the songs I have been adding recently are being added into a /music folder instead...

this is not an issue with itunes but it annoying and causes problems with other applications which rely on files being located where they are supposed to be, in which case the /tunes folder.

this has only happened since the most recent 9.1.1

I dont know if anyone has had a similar experience.. please let me know if I need to check / change some settings..

ITunes Mac :: Put ITunes Purchased Music Into Editing Program?
How do can I put iTunes purchased music into an editing program? I have several possible editing programs, including Final Cut Pro, but they all refuse to open the music file if it has Apple's copy protection. If it's my copy and I'm not violating a copyright, it seems to me I should be able to alter the music for personal reasons.

Applications :: Reorganizing Music From "Music Collection" Folder To "iTunes Media" Folder?
so here is my problem with iTunes.

I have music with correct IDE tags in a "Music Collection" folder, though they are all unorganized and in sub folders. These folders have names like "Other iTunes", "More Music", "New Music", etc. I would like to reorganize all this music into one iTunes folder. I have gone into preferences and tried checkmarking the boxes "Keep iTunes Media folder organized" and "Copy files to iTunes Media folder when to library". My iTunes Media folder is a fresh new folder in "My Music". When I check that exact location, I see none of my music has moved there. All I see is an empty "Automatically Add to iTunes" folder. All my files are still in the unorganized "Music Collection" folder.

What can I do to literally move all my unorganized music files from this folder to a completely fresh and new iTunes Media folder, all with very organized sub folders categorized by artist and/or album? My main goal is to make an organized and updated library, because I spent a good amount of time deleting duplicates that have not gone to the recycle bin (and it would take FOREVER to find all those duplicates and delete them permanently).

4. Started an entirely new project.

ITunes Mac :: See IPod Songs In ITunes - But Can't Save Them In Library Or Music Folder?
Initially had loaded my iTunes onto a PC and "homeshared" to my Mac. PC died and could not disable homesharing on THAT end. But did disable homesharing on my Mac.

Synced by iPod (appears to be a PC model) and all songs showed up under device in iTunes. But, all songs were downloaded from CDs (not iTunes store). So: tried to select all and save to a new folder under music. No dice.

Tried "Add to Library" from iTunes File Menu...nada. Since the songs were originally loaded to the iPod from a Windows PC, do I need a utility in order to get them uploaded to my Mac? Really don't want to have to re-record them all (>1000 songs) and know I must be missing something obvious here.

It's just like it is frozen when I click on it. Just the canned music from Apple plays. Yuk.I have d'load iTunes music, plus ripped it in from CDs I own, and made several playlists, long and short. But nothing shows at all. All the music is on the same drive iPhoto is... nothing is across a network, a partition or a separate drive.
