ITunes :: Transfer Playlists Between 2 Different Ipods?

Apr 17, 2012

I have two iPod Nano (3 gen). One of them my daughter happened to drop into a pool so the screen stopped working.Is there anyway to "copy" a playlist from the "broken" iPod to the other fully functional iPod?

I have tried to use the "Export playlist" / "Import Playlist" option but that dosent work at all? Or is itunes so (sorry) "Stupid" made that we have to make new playlist on the fully functional iPod and ad song after song, it will take hours to make the lists identical, there must be som easier way?

ITunes For Mac :: How To Transfer Music Ratings And Playlists From IPhone 5c

Aug 29, 2014

My iPhone 5c used to sync with my old Windows laptop via iTunes and both devices held all music information on them such as iTunes rating, playlist information and the selected songs to be synced (there are more songs on my iTunes on my laptop than my iPhone).   All of these songs are also saved on an external hard drive.  None were purchased through iTunes.

When my old Windows laptop died, it died abruptly so I did not have chance to consolidate the iTunes media folder.  I have now bought a new MacBook Air to replace my old Windows laptop.

When I plug in my iPhone 5c to my new MacBook Air, when iTunes offers to sync it advises all information on my iPhone will be lost.

Is it possible to transfer the ratings and playlists from my iPhone to iTunes on my MacBook Air, at least for the corresponding songs that exist on my iPhone?  Note I have the original songs on an external hard drive so the song files themselves do not have to copy across.  All the files in the iPhone exist in the external hard drive.

ITunes :: Deleting Tracks From Library Within Smart Playlists

Apr 17, 2012

I use iTunes 10.6.1 (7) on Mac.I spend some time googling and searching for solutions for my problem, but everything is either outdated or simply doesn't work.I have a smart playlist with all songs that are matched on iTunes Match, but which are below 256k bitrate. I want to delete them from the library, so I can download new 256k versions of them.This is supposedly possible by using Option + Delete, but that doesn't work for me. I also tried all kinds of other combinations like SHIFT + Option + Delete or CRTL + Option + Delete and none of them work.

Applications :: How To Delete Itunes Tracks Directly From Playlists And The Library

Jul 22, 2010

If I'm playing some music from a playlist, and I decide I want to delete it from my entire collection, I can't don't it easily. Deleting it right from the playlist doesn't remove it from my library. I have to go hunt it down in the main "Music" folder which is a pain in the ass, especially with multiple tracks. Is there some way, when looking at a track in a playlist, that I can delete it from my entire library and put it in the Trash?

ITunes For Mac :: Transfer Huge Library Of Non-iTunes Songs To PC?

Jun 1, 2014

I have a Macbook with about 5,000 songs on it, all of which are burned from actual hard copies of CDs that I own. Rather than re-burning each CD to my new Windows computer, I would like to see if there's a way to transfer all these songs from Mac to PC using an external hard drive. 

The real question is how can I format my external hard drive to be recognized on both a Macbook running Snow Leopard and a PC running Windows 7?

OS X :: Itunes Library -unable To Transfer

Nov 1, 2010

So a few weeks ago I bought an external hard drive to put all my music (from multiple computers) on, with the plan of making it my itunes library that I would then only access from my macbook pro. Everything was working great. I got all the songs onto my macbook pro, and then began consolidating my library to the external hard drive. My plan was then to go into my macbook pro after everything had been transferred over to the external hard drive, and delete everything in my music folder to free up space.

Well, during the consolidation we must have had a power failure or something, because the computer shut down and thus stopped the transfer. Now, itunes is looking to my external drive for my music (some of which is there), but since the transfer stopped at some point before it was complete, there are a bunch of songs that didnt move, and therefore it can't "find". I havent deleted any of the stuff from my macbook pro music folder, so everything is still all there, but it is not looking there for my music.

I'm thinking of completely uninstalling itunes, reinstalling it, directing it to my macbook pro music folder (which in theory still has all my stuff) and then reconsolidating to the external hard drive.

OS X :: How To Transfer Itunes Library Onto External HD

Dec 28, 2010

I understand how to move the whole library onto an external HD, moving the media folder location on itunes preferences etc, but say i wanted to move the library (which is about 60 gigs) to my external HD but keep about 10 gigs on my internal drive? How do I do this, assuming the amount i want to keep is too large to manually drag and drop each song/album fro my external drive onto my internal one.

Also my itunes says my library is about 52 gigs, but in finder it says my songs are about 65 gigs, why is this and how can i delete the extra gigs? I'm in Home/Music/Itunes/Itunes Music incase thats the wrong location.

OS X :: Complicated ITunes Library Transfer

Jan 25, 2010

I have two separate iTunes libraries, saved on an external hard drive, from two Macs that no longer work. These libraries are completely different from one another and I also still have both of their Library.xml files saved.

I want to finally bring these two iTunes libraries and upload them into my current Mac's iTunes library, however, I also want to retain the metadata (play count, ratings, etc.) from them. All the information I've come across only shows how to do so with ONE previous iTunes library and importing it into your new Mac with an empty iTunes library. Would this even be remotely possible or will I just have to bring them over as new files into my current existing library with no metadata?
