ITunes :: Everytime Plays A Song?

May 29, 2012

I have a Mac Pro 5,1, 16 GB, 2T Startup Drive & three other drives for additional storage and Time Machine. 

My finder & Dashboard quits and re-starts every time iTunes plays a new song.  The screen goes completely gray & blank under whatever I may have open.  It lasts only momentarily, but is quite annoying.  As part of the troubleshooting, I ran Disk Utility.  Checked permissions which were OK.  Checked verify disk & got result that the disk is corrupt & should be repaired.  When I tried to start my computer from the Recovery disk (using the Option key), it would not start (going instead to a gray patterened screen).  I tried this several times & one time it did go to the screen showing the Recovery disk and my startup disk.  But when I selected the Recovery disk, it went to the gray patterned screen again.  I then connected my Mac Pro to my MacBook Pro & booted the Mac Pro to Target Disk mode.  When I ran Disk Utility Repair Disk on the Mac Pro's startup disk, the result showed no problem with the disk.  I'm not sure where to go from here, so I can use some help.

Song Plays In ITunes / But File Does Not Show In Finder

Jun 16, 2012

My 26,000+ song iTunes Library lives on an external LaCie drive. All the songs play fine in iTunes (and I can hear the drive spin up when I go to play them). However, for a few thousand of the songs, the song's file is not in the physical location where iTunes shows it to be.An example is below these are two song file locations from the 'Master Tune Library.xml' exported from iTunes.Both of these files show in iTunes, and they both play just fine from iTunes (no exclamation mark next to the song names). Yet only the first file (one ending in 1219.mp3)is at that location.The one ending in 1249.mp3 does not show in that location, either via Finder, or via Terminal.

From Terminal I get no results from "find /Volumes/LaCie500 -name espace_20101103_1249.mp3" (without the dbl quotes) But if I run the same command for the 1219 file, it does find it in the expected location.Really stumped as from where iTunes is playing 1249.mp3. [code] iTunes Media folder location is /Volumes/LaCie500/myTunes Both options underneath for "organize" and "copy files when adding to Library" are checked.

Applications :: Batch Rename Song Names To (Artist - Song Name) Within ITunes?

Apr 28, 2009

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

SONG Samuel Barber- Adagio for Strings

ARTIST Classical Chillout

ALBUM Classical Chillout

Applications :: How To Line Up Next Song To Play After Current Song In ITunes?

Dec 2, 2010

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?

ITunes :: Exclamation Points On Every Song - Can't Locate Song?

May 31, 2012

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!

OS X :: Stutter In ITunes When Clicking Song To Song?

Dec 11, 2008

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?

ITunes :: Syncs The Same Songs Everytime

Mar 26, 2012

iTunes 10.6 with new iPhone 4S 

When I sync my iPhone everything syncs normally but about 120 songs keep syncing over and over.  I did a little research and it appears that it's the ID3 tags need re-doing to fix it.  The problem is it scrolls thru it so fast it's next to impossible to get the songs with the problem.

ITunes :: Opens And Plays Certain MP3 Files Automatically

Feb 3, 2012

This just started in the last week or two, but my itunes will be completely closed, and suddenly it opens and play a certain mp3 file, then the next then one more. This isn't any particular playlist or anything. The files are probably all in my download folder and it just goes in order. This happens many times per day. Often times my computer was actually asleep and it wakes it to play these files.

Looking at my console log, I get the following two things right when it happens.
2/3/12 8:48:09.366 AM [0x0-0x1f11f1].com.apple.iTunes: Returning 0x0. Advertising wake service for libraryIdentifier "EA6D19640E6DBDE0".
2/3/12 8:48:20.346 AM [0x0-0x1f11f1].com.apple.iTunes: Version from driver for Certificates 1

So I'm assuming whatever is happening has to do with these log items. How to stop this? It's very bothersome when I'm in the middle of a business call, etc. I need to keep my MBP volume up as well because I have various alerts I need to hear.

ITunes :: Have Downloaded A Song And When Go To Play It, It Bounces Off Of It And Will Not Play The Song

Jun 13, 2012

I have downloaded a song and when I go to play it...it bounces off of the song and will not play.  I have iTunes 10.6.1......Apple charged me for the song already.  I went to Support but could not find a solution specific to my issue. I have downloaded over 2500 songs and this has not happened before.  This song was one of nine other songs I downloaded that evening...all others came through successfully.

Applications :: ITunes Automatically Plays Unrelated Songs?

Sep 26, 2010

This has happened for a few months now, ever since I upgraded to iTunes 8 I believe, and now that I'm using iTunes more often it's starting to get annoying. I will play an album in iTunes. Once the album finishes, instead of stopping playback, iTunes will play an apparently random song from my library (though each album seems to be linked to a different song, which changes every now and then. I've been unable to find any pattern). Does anyone know what I'm talking about or have any ideas? I don't think this is just a problem for me - it happens to some friends who have iTunes as well. I've searched on Google and on this forum and couldn't find any solutions.

ITunes :: Window Pops Up When Music Video Plays?

Jun 8, 2012

When a video track begins, the iTunes window comes up, even if I've got iTunes hidden.  (Note: it doesn't bring the iTunes application to the foreground; it just shows the iTunes window behind my current window.) 

Clearly, this is not the behavior I want when it's _hidden_!  ...But I can't find any way to stop this behavior

P.S. This is iTunes version 10.6.1(7) on OS 10.7.4.  Also, I'm running SizzlingKeys 3.3.5, if that matters (there doesn't seem to be a preference in this app to control window behavior...).

ITunes For Mac :: 11.2.2 - Why Doesn't Number Of Plays Get Synced From IPod

Jun 5, 2014

ipod shuffle, the little square one, 4th or maybe 5th generation.

Mac OS X 10.7.5

itunes 11.2.2 

I listen to something on my ipod. I plug the ipod into my computer. In itunes, on the ipod, I can see the track I listed to has number of plays 1. That track in the library on the computer fails to get any plays next to it. Why? Why does this stuff never really work properly? I'm sure it used to work, but I could be wrong. It's not working now. Plays on/from the ipod don't get registered on the computer. This means I don't know which tracks I've listed to and which I haven't.
