ITunes :: Lost Music - Get The "can't Be Located" Error

Jun 29, 2012

I used the apple tutorial regarding using my ipod to transfer all of my music from my pc to my mac mini. It worked, had everything up and going. Erroneously deleted the file containing the music, so now I get the "can't be located" error. All of the music is still on my ipod, and I think it should still be on my pc. Is my best bet to redo the tutorial? Or is there a way to use what is on my ipod and put the folder back onto my mac desktop? Nothing was backed up, and trash is emptied.


OS X :: Itunes Music Files Cannot Be Located?

Dec 12, 2010

Ok so yesterday I logged into my account on my computer and clicked itunes to open it. Instead of going to my library it said It cannot find my music library and told me to locate it. I clicked "Locate" and it went to my finder. We have had an external drive for the the past 6 months and I had been storing all my itunes on the external drive AND on the normal hard drive. So when I clicked the locate button, I chose the itunes library in my external library. Now my library is setup like it was about 2 years ago, complete with ipod nano games, playlist, and songs I have deleted. when I click a song to play it says "Cannot locate file." If i go into the finder and find the normal hard drive, and go into itunes media, I can double click the songs and play the songs in itunes. So I have no idea why all this happened but Is the only way to get all my songs back, to delete all the songs that cannot be l0 located and drag my whole library thats stored on my normal hard drive into itunes?

Applications :: ITunes Purchased Music Error?

Nov 16, 2009

So had just sent in my MBP with dead logic board. Got it back. Everything works great except all my purchased music on iTunes needed to be re-authorized. No problem, I know the password. (By the way the account is an AOL account) So I type in my password, it recognizes it as being correct but would like me to update my account for use with an Apple ID. This is also fine (although I remember doing this a few months ago already. Whatever I'll do it again.)

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

Aug 6, 2010 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 :: Music Won't Play On My Itunes

Jun 17, 2012

So I was in my room in the dark for like two seconds, and i tried to switch the sound on the computer, but I couldn't really see anything.Then I decided to stop listening to music and just closed my computer. Next morning, no sound comes out of itunes. Even with earphones

(and I know it was a bad idea) but at full volume. Did I press a bad combo of keys that would mute itunes? (Youtube works) I can buy songs at the itunes store, and they'll look like they're playing, but no sound comes out.

MacBook Pro :: Music Cd's Are Not Recognized And Won't Mount In ITunes On It

Mar 27, 2012

When I insert a music cd into my Macbook Pro, the cd spins for a short time, never shows up in iTunes or my Finder, and then is ejected. Curiously, I can insert a blank cd and burn a playlist to it in iTunes. I can then re-insert the burned music cd and the Macbook Pro recognizes it, opens it up in iTunes and asks if I want to import it.

ITunes :: It Can't Find Some Music

Apr 27, 2012

I get an exclamation mark in a grey circle in front of some of the songs in my "Music" library. When I try to play the song I get an error message: "The song could not be used because the original file could not be found. Would you like to locate it?" I have put all my music on an external HD. In the Advance Preferences I have changed the "iTunes Media folder location" to the external hard drive and there are check marks before "Keep iTunes Media folder organized" and "Copy files to iTunes Media folder when adding to library". Why does it not find some songs?

ITunes :: Can't Import Music Into 10.6.1

Jun 8, 2012

Any type of audio track I attempt to import into 10.6.1 is not showing up. There's a similar thread here and it was determined that turning Match off then on fixes the issue, but I don't subscribe to Match so that doesn't work for me.

I've tried adding tracks to the main music library and to a playlist by dragging into iTunes, open with, double clicking on the track, and dragging the track onto the icon in the dock. Nothing. I've tried numerous different tracks, all of which play fine in Finder.

OS X :: Lost Everything On Media Drive - Music - Photos - Movies

Aug 30, 2009

in prepartation for snow leopard I decided i better do a backup of my drive. I turned to trusty old super duper. i did a backup using "smart update" which in the past has left all my files on my external drive intact and copied over my main drive. however today it decided to simply erase the drive and then do a backup. It's NEVER done this before in the past, and i've now lost everything on my media drive: music, photos, movies, everything. can i recover what was lost? or am i completed effed in the a? the irony: doing a backup and in the process losing everything that counted.

Applications :: ITunes Deleting Music That's In A Playlist?

Jan 24, 2009

I have a fair bit of music in iTunes, and it has bugged me somewhat that often when I want to delete many files something it's easier to go into a playlist to find them. But when I delete them from there it only removes them from that playlist, not the computer. I guess this makes sense, and I suppose nowadays space isn't often a problem.

In case this isn't clear, what I want to do is go into a playlist, then select songs, then delete those songs from my hard drive.

Applications :: ITunes: Update Music's New Location?

Jan 12, 2010

I need a tool/method that does only two thing:

- rename a folder containing music files
- report the changed location to iTunes

If I rename the a folder by hand or with a tagger, iTunes won't know the music's new folder name.

How can I rename a folder and report iTunes the new location for the media files?
