ITunes For Mac :: Screensaver Stopped Working - No Voice Memos
Dec 1, 2014
I have a sizeable iTunes library and enjoy the iTunes screensaver. However, after a recent update (not sure which version of Lion), the screensaver stopped working. At first System Preferences would crash every time I changed to another option and then changed it back (did not get the error message, it was a few weeks ago), but now I just have a black screen that says "Your iTunes Library does not contain any songs with artwork." I have over 80GB and most albums have artwork. My library is not on an external hard-drive, just in the regular Music folder.
I looked at other suggestions online indicating I should delete my voice memos (or at least duplicate ones). I didn't realize I had one, but I deleted it both from iTunes and the folder. This had no effect.
I also used the "Get Album Artwork" function to see if this would work, and nothing changed.
I also deleted com.apple.iApps.plist as suggested by another thread.
Obviously it's not the end of the world not to have my preferred screensaver, but at this point I just want to solve the problem because I've tried so many options.
MacBook Pro (13-inch Early 2011), Mac OS X (10.7.5)
I have about 100 voice memos recorded on my iPhone 3GS and which have successfully synched with my MacBook Pro, which i recently upgraded to Lion. When I open up iTunes, there they all are listed in my Voice Memos playlist.
The voice memos are lists of french vocabulary and so I created themed playlists in iTunes on my mac and arranged the voice memos in the different playlists. When I open the playlists on my Mac's iTunes, they are all there. I have synced them with my phone and the name of the playlists appears on my phone but when I open the playlists, they are empty. I am manually selecting music and playlists to be synced. i have checked the boxes for:
sync music selected playlists, artists... playlists (the specific playlists)
and in the genres topic, i have selected voice memos i created a music playlist just now and that works fine, but not with memos.
How do I move Voice Memos from my iPhone 5 to my MacBook Air, iOS 10.9.4? It does NOT sync Voice Memos when I sync everything else, seems to just ignore the app entirely. I need to be able to access Voice Memos from my computer when my phone is not available.
voice over has stopped working. If I go into system preferences, speech and ask it to play, it crashes and there is no sound for the installed voices. I've tried restarting, disc repair and disc permissions repair. If i go into voice-over utility everything works though. There are no announcements and it wont speak selected text. Im using OSX 10.7.3
I installed 10.5.7 yesterday. Immediately after the installation was complete, my Apple bluetooth keyboard stopped working. Went into Bluetooth system settings, and it said that there was no bluetooth hardware found... (it's built into the machine!!)...
Also, every time I start iTunes, it gives some weird error about Adobe Flash player. I'm not at home now so I don't have the exact wording of the error with me, sorry...
For some strange reason the dictionary screensaver in my version of snow leopard stopped functioning. All I see now when it slips into screensaver mode is "Quartz Composer". I can't even find the dictionary option in the screensaver settings anymore. I'm scratching my head on this one.
I have Itunes for Mac. The sound has stopped working on Itunes only. It works fine on Internet, Spotify Etc. Volume is up in the bar, and the little diamond is moving across indicating playback is happening...
my work MacBook Pro and my own MacBook Air - The media keys have stopped working. Dumping the prefs and restarting haven't worked. The media keys work fine with Spotify though. My software versions are below:iTunes 11.2.2 (3)OSX 10.9.3
I used to be able to sync my iOS devices wirelessly with iTunes. A version or two back, that stopped working. I now have v11.2.2 (3) under OS X 10.9.3..I have tried unchecking, quitting and restarting and rechecking 'sync wirelessly' for each device.
The devices often appear in the leftmost panel when I start iTunes but selecting them causes a progress bar to appear and after 30 secs disappear and the device name is dropped from the list. This worked reliably for many years but stopped some months back after an iTunes update.
I normally prefer to view my songs in iTunes using the 'Songs' view, listing everything with the details shown. I'll usually set it to sort by 'Album'.
Clicking on the 'Album' header used to give me options that I could cycle through, but suddenly it is stuck on sorting only by 'Album by Artist', and I no longer have the option to simply sort by 'Album' alone.
I am unable to restore the ability to sort only by 'Album', have gone through all of the menu choices in how I view or sort my albums.
I have not made any changes to my system software or applications recently that would be obvious causes for this happening. All of my software is up-to-date.
Clicked itunes in dock the icon bobs up and down then nothing. the same thing happens with an album design software supplied by a local photo lab both were working perfectly last week. All other software is fine.I have verified and repaired permissions and disks several time and it say every thing is Ok. No goodI reinstalled both bits of software from new copies. No good.Reinstalled Snow Leopard and up dated as required. No good.Used 3rd party software called Permissions/Preference. No good
I was working on some home work in window Xp and I got the BSOD!!!well I lost my work, but there was a back up that god, know this happened while i was scrolling my mouse, and playing music in itunes as the computer stopped itunes stopped and crashed, Strange?I got a Screen shot of the screen and I'll post it, if any one has a suggestion to help stop this then by all means please help me I suck at windows
A few days ago I began hearing some strange high frequency noises coming from my internal speakers, and even higher noises when headphones or my external speakers were plugged in. A day later, the noise was only coming from the internal speakers and the headphone jack no longer works. I have the speakers plugged in and the sound still comes from the internal speakers with intermittent high frequency noises and whistling. I'm trying to get back my speakers or headphones in working order.
Today I found this cool sreensaver on the net and I downloaded it when I went to try it. It didn't work. I try the test (in preferences) and it works but when I Hot Corner (Start SS) to test it out it load up a black screen with little dots (in the middle top of the screen) then it crush (it just close).
When I leave my clam shelled computer alone for a while, it doesn't start the screen saver after 5 minutes like I set it to. Is this intentional on Apple's part? If so, is there a program I could download to make it work?
during SW to my mini-mac wireless key board the keyboard stop responding. now i have left without an ability to work with my wireless keyboard. is there any why to reset the keyboard to default setting so it will come to live again..
I downloaded the Samantha (same as Siri) voice just for fun. I don't use voice over, and I was just using it for fun. Now I realize it was almost half a gig of hard drive space. Oops. Is there any way for me to delete this new voice on my Mac?
I have an Olympus voice recorder that said it would work on my Mac but it doesn't. So I use it on a pc. But my iTunes is on my Mac and I'd really like to get a recording off of the recorder and into iTunes. I tried mailing the recording from a pc, opening and downloading it on my Mac but it comes up as garbled text.
I have been connecting wirelessly to the same router for about 4 months now, using DHCP, and having the settings on the automatic connection. I left the computer on, but closed, so sleeping, for about two days. When i opened it, the battery did not yet run out but the internet has not connected since.
I have full connection in internet connect to my network. Status says connected. If I have the IPv4 using DHCP, the status says that i am connected but my computer have a self-assigned IP adress. When I put in the IP manually, the Network setting give me a green light on airport and says that I am connected to the network thru airport. Needless to say, no browsers (Firefox, Safari, Netscape, or Internet Explorer) have been able to connect to the internet.
I have tried running Disk Utility for any errors, but there have been no changes.
