ITunes :: Doesn't Wake External Drive With Library In Case If Remote Access

May 29, 2012

I have latest iTunes 10.6.1 and its library located on external drive, connected by FW800.

System properties -> Energy saver -> Put the hard disk(s) to sleep when possible is On  Everything works perfect in case of local access.

Also in case library's drive sleeps, it takes just several seconds more in order to wake drive. But remote access works only in case the drive is waked somehow. I.e. if Home Sharing is enabled and drive sleeps I cannot get access to the content from remote iTunes or Apple TV. 

I think it is a bug, remote access shall be not broken in case the drive is sleeping. Also it is known, some forums explain that you shall never put external drives in sleep mode in case this drive used for iTunes Home Sharing [URL]

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Best Application For Remote Access (including Wake From Sleep)

Jun 28, 2012

I will soon be getting a new macbook pro ret (soon) and will leave my macbook (13-inch, Aluminum, Late 2008) in the office where I am situated in university. I am looking to ensure that I can leave one at office and one at home. Yet keep access to both, I have seen "logmein pro" and seems to look good except one problem. It says to wake from sleep you need a computer on network running logmein. This I cannot guarantee as it is a university network. It also says that it will need to be linked to the network through cable to wake from sleep.

I will also need to close the lid of the laptop (or leave it open and risk trashing it) and have a password/login lock incase someone decides they want to be naughty. Anyway, I need a program that i can use over wifi (not highest priority) that WILL wake my macs from sleep (highest priority) and WILL (essential) allow me to have full remote access to computers including drag and drop. I dont care about accessing from my mobile as have drop box.

ITunes :: Can't Access Its Library On A Shared Drive

Mar 16, 2012

Here is my problem: I want to access my iTunes library from a shared drive.

Here is my equipment:

1. Imac running iTunes 10.6

2. 1 week old Macbook Air running iTunes 10.6

3. 1 Timecapsule that is 1 day old, bought with the express purpose of putting my extensive iTunes library on it, and was assure I would be able to stream it.

4. An Airport express hooked to my stereo.

The concept was that the Air doesn't really have the capability to hold all my music, but I want to use it as a "remote" to select songs through iTunes and play them on my stereo.I did NOT want to leave my iMac on at all times and do homes haring that way.Therefore, I followed intructions fonund else where and moved my iTunes library from my iMac to the newly installed shared drive on the Time Capsule.I went into iTunes on the Air selected preferences, advanced, and changed the location of the Air's iTunes library to that of the one on the Time Capsule. It sees all the music. I close preferences.

ITunes :: How To Access Library On A Second Hard Drive

May 31, 2012

I installed a 128MG SSD, which is too small for storing my iTunes library. My iTunes library is on a second hard drive (my Mac Pro has four internal hard drives). I went to iTunes Preferences. Under Advanced Preferences "iTunes Media folder location" I selected my second hard drive and found my iTunes folder. But iTunes continues to show only the (few) songs on my SSD, without the (many) songs or playlists from my second hard drive. How do I get iTunes to shows the songs and playlists from the iTunes folder on my second hard drive?

Applications :: Windows XP ITunes Doesn't See Library In External HD Via Airport Extreme?

Nov 24, 2010

I attached external hard drive to Airport Extreme, set up home network and mounted the hard drive. My MacBook Pro can see the drive and all contents, including iTunes library. Our home PC which is running Windows XP also recognizes the drive and can see iTunes library in My Computer. Here is the problem. When I try to chose which iTunes library to open (Shift+click) in Windows XP, the library on my external HD is not visible so I cant open it! I see the cover art and music folder, just not the actual library. What am I missing here? I can see it in My Computer, why not in iTunes?! I need to link my external library to XP. Connecting external directly to PC will not work because I have a Time Capsule there.

ITunes :: Can't Access My Mp3s From My External Drive

Feb 28, 2012

I've read most of the articles in Support but can't find an answer. I read this too [url]...

I'm running itunes 10.5.3 on my imac. I transferred my itunes music folder to an external drive because it was taking up too much space on my internal drive. Then I went into itunes preferences and changed the location of the folder to the external drive. But I can't access tons of my mp3s now. When I click on a song in my library that it can't access, I get that explanation mark, and a statement asking me if I would like to locate the file. I locate it, and then I can listen to it.

And after I find that missing file for itunes, a window pops up and asks "Would you like itunes to use the location of "-----" to find other missing files in your library"? I select 'yes'. But then itunes can't find the missing files, even if they're in the same exact folder as the last one I found! It seems to me like this function is broken? And I have like 2,000 missing files! I even re-imported my itunes music folder back into my library. But that didn't work and now I have a ton of duplicates.

OS X :: To Existing ITunes Library On External Drive?

Jan 6, 2010

I have a Mac Mini connected to a Lacie external HD that houses all of my iTunes library. I've just bought a new iMac to replace the Mini and want to keep the iTunes library on the external, just point the new machine's iTunes to the existing library on the external.

How best to do that? I don't want to restore from TM because I want to start fresh from this Mac and there really isn't a lot to keep other than the iTunes (most of it is on the external). If I point to an existing location, I don't need to Consolidate, do I? Any risk of losing the library? Do I need to unlink the library on the existing Mac?

ITunes :: Library Is On An External Hard-drive?

my itunes library is on an external hard-drive.  I have another external harddrive that is portable and I'd like to have this one to travel with and be able to update it from the main library on the other ext. hd.  Right now I have just copied over the entire library of music - no itunes involved - but I realized that this doesn't work for me as I want to be able to update that music file with the newer stuff found on my other main ext. hd.

ITunes :: Repoint Library To External Drive?

May 26, 2012

I have had a series of hard drive issues.  My iTunes library is kept on an external drive.  This is the second one that failed.  I am unable to copy the files enmass from one drive to the other using the normal method for relocating an iTunes library (due to drive errors).  However, I was able to do a folder-by-folder finder copy from the failed drive to the new external.  Then, I went into iTunes preference and repointed the iTunes Media folder location to the new drive.  I had the "keep organized" and "copy files to library" boxes checked.  Then, iTunes wanted to update the files, which it did.  However, all of my file paths in iTunes still point to the old, damaged hard drive.  How do I get them to have the correct path to the new drive?  I had this situation once in the past, but I cannot remember how I solved it.

ITunes :: Move A Library From One External Drive To Another?

Jun 8, 2012

I need to move my iTunes library from one external disk to another, because the original disk is about to fail. So, I went into iTunes Perferences --> Advanced, and set the library to a new, empty folder on the new drive. Nothing changed. I expected all my music to vanish from iTunes, so that I would have to re-import it. However, all the music remained, still on the old disk. At this point, if I were to recreate the library on the new disk, I would have all of my music twice. Is it possible to move an iTunes library from one external drive to another, or am I stuck with my original choice until I buy a new machine? If I can move it, can one of you clever folks explain how it could be done?

ITunes :: Library To External Hard Drive?

Jun 24, 2012

So, my iTunes library is getting too large for my computer's storage capacity. I'm thinking of moving some of my library to an external, USB hard drive. However, I've never done iTunes through an external hard drive before and I have some questions. Can I copy new discs (import) straight onto the external hard drive? Or do they need to go onto my computer first then get transferred to the hard drive?Can I still use iTunes Match and pull songs from the library on my hard drive and from the main computer?To partition a library between a computer and an external hard drive, do I need to activate sharing or anything special? Or will the computer/main iTunes library just consider the external drive to be a different location for some of the tracks?How would I backup the external hard drive? Would Time Machine (running off a separate hard drive) back up another external hard drive if they were both plugged in?Can you burn the entire library to data discs anymore? Or do you need to make a playlist of your entire library? If the latter, is there a way to turn off the message about iTunes in the Cloud playlists only accepting songs matched or uploaded? I have some songs that erroneously did not get matched or uploaded. If I try to put them in a playlist and burn it to a data disc for backup, iTunes won't do it.

Applications :: Copying ITunes Library From One External Drive To Another?

Dec 18, 2006

I want to copy my iTunes library from one external drive (currently connected to an iBook) to a 2nd external drive (connected to an eMac). The library is almost 60GB and so can not fit on either machine's hard drive.

The music currently plays through the iBook from the first external drive.

I want to be able to play the same music on the eMac (through the 2nd external drive).

Which is the best way to go about this?

Should I:

a) Connect the 1st external drive to the eMac and manually drag and drop the music from there to the 2nd external drive, or

b)Use Silverkeeper Basckup and do a backup of the Music folder in the 1st drive to the 2nd drive, after connecting the 1st to the eMac?

or is there not much difference in doing either? Or is there a more efficient option using iTunes?

Applications :: How To Import ITunes Library On External Drive ?

Nov 1, 2008

I just bought a MacBook Pro. I have my iTunes library on an external firewire HDD. I want to keep it there, but have iTunes on my new Mac access it. However, even though I have put the path to that drive in iTunes Preferences, the songs there don't show up in iTunes.

The new Mac is authorised, and I have bought a song on the iTunes store, which was saved to the external drive.

So what do I need to do? Do I get one of the library files copied over from the old machine (also a Mac)?

ITunes :: Transfer Old Podcasts To Another Library On An External Drive

Mar 17, 2012

I have two itunes libraries, a library of current podcasts and music on my internal drive (ID) (which runs the operating system)  which is running out of space, and an external drive (ED) with old music (from CDs) that I keep in stoarge for special occassions when I am away from home and I want to play music. 

The ID and the ED have their own itunes library.   

I am running out of ID space, so I want to move all my pre-2012 podcasts from my ID to my ED.    I will then have the podcast when I am away from home and I want to play them for myself or others.

How do I transfer just the podcasts dated prior to 31 December 2011 from the ID to the ED?   After I transfer them, i can delete the podcasts from the ID and get more free space.

ITunes :: Library - Moved To External Drive And Now Apps Are Gone?

Jun 22, 2012

I moved my iTunes library to an external drive, but now my apps are gone? I do have iTunes match and iCloud, so my songs are all on the cloud, but none of my apps are showing... I copied everything over, consolidated, but I must have messed something up as I think I have too many library files on the external drive now. I can see all my files on the external drive, but they are not showing up when I open itunes. It looks like it linked to a new copy of a library as only my most recent apps are showing, nad none of my existing ones are on itunes. What should I do to fix this? How do I know which files to delete?

iMac, iOS 5.1.1
