Applications :: Migrating Avi Movie Library To ITunes

May 6, 2010

I have a question about moving all of my avi movies from the movies folder into iTunes. I do have toast titanium which I was planning on using to convert the files before moving them. I guess my question is would it be possible to convert all of my movies into iTunes and A. Be able to watch them in good quality on my tv and B. Be able to check off which videos I want to ne synced to my iPod to take them and display them on a different tv via the nano. I would just like to hear if anyone has the same setup going on or if it would work better keeping all of my avi movies in a folder and converting them to iPod format on the fly.

ITunes For Mac :: No Longer Add Movie Files But Add Music - Attempting To Copy To Disk X Failed

Jun 29, 2014

I am running OSX 10.9.3 on a 3GHz Intel Core 2 Duo iMac with 12GB RAM, and itunes 11.2.2 (3) 64 Bit. My itunes library is large (approx 1 TB) and contains mostly ripped CDs, vinyl and ripped DVDs and BluRays. I usually add media using the File/Add to Library command. This set up has been reliable for a couple of years at least. 

At time of writing itunes will still happily add music files, but is no longer happy to add movie files. I get a message telling me that the disk which contains my itunes library (I use a 2TB external HD) cannot be written to or read from. Clearly this isn't true as I can write music files to it.  

I tried disk repair in the disk utility and it tells me the drive is healthy. I thought maybe there is a maximum itunes library size. As a check I tried starting a completely new itunes library on a different external drive and the problem persists. 

I have >500GB spare space on the drive containing my itunes library. All my drives are formatted Mac OS Extended (Journaled) so should not suffer any file size limitation.

ITunes :: Copy Library From One Ext HD To Another

Aug 21, 2010

I currently have my Itunes library on an external hard drive. This hard drive (Maxtor) has been giving me problems. I bought another external hard drive and I want to copy my library onto that. My operating system is Vista. When I hook up the new hard drive can I just do the normal procedure that I used to put the library on the first external hard drive? Is it a totally different procedure?

Applications :: ITunes Library Management - Adding Movie And TV Shows

Aug 6, 2010

I now want to add my video media library to iTunes so that all my digital media will be in one place, and I can organize and search shows by genre, artist, etc. First, all my videos are .avi, so I figured that since iTunes accepts only .mp4 I have to convert ALL of them which will take SOO LONG. Any easy way of batch converting? Should I even store my videos and tv shows in iTunes, or do people do it differently? (I want to do something other than just putting them in folders)

But my main question is, because I store all these videos on an external drive, I simply want to link them to iTunes and keep them in their original paths, since they won't fit locally. I can accomplish this by simply un-checking the advanced preference option of copying the files to the default location, but that means I have to turn this off and then back on each time I want to import video. I understand this is not a HUGE deal but wanted to see if this was the proper/most efficient way of going about this.

ITunes For Mac :: How To Copy Library To External HD

Dec 9, 2014

My iTunes Library is too large and taking up too much of my iMac's 1Tb HD.  The iTunes Library is currently at 381 GB.  Along with a healthy music collections, I have a ton of video files.  I recently tried to import more video files and I got a message that there was not enough room on the hard drive.   

I have read up on how to copy the itunes library to an external hard drive, and although time consuming sounds pretty easy.  However I have a few concerns about 'MOVING' the itunes library.  Essentially copying it to the new external hard drive and then deleting the old library on my iMac's HD.   If I do that will I have issues with: 

1.  Using iTunes playing songs, video etc.  Will it have difficulty locating it's new location because it is no longer on the 'local' HD?  Or if it works ok, will it be really slow?

2.  Will my 2 Apple TV's not be able to stream the content?

3.  Will my Time Machine backups automatically include contents of the new external HD?  I am assuming not.    

OR is it just plain easier to leave the iTunes library on the local iMac HD and delete music and video not currently being used?  ie;  add it into iTunes when I want it, and delete it when I don't?

OS X :: Ehd Crashed - Copy Itunes Library From Back Up?

Mar 30, 2009

my ehd crashed (the one that I was using for my Itunes library) fortunately, I did a CCC to a separate EHD last summer so I have most of the music. I know how to do CCC and I know how to MOVE my itunes folder and consolidate. But now, what I want to do is COPY my itunes library from my current bootable EHD (from the CCC) and move it back to my main HD. But I do not want to "move the library" and consolidate. I want to keep a back up on the EHD in case this happens again...

Applications :: Copy And Convert ITunes Library From Mac To PC

May 31, 2009

having spend days reading various iTunes HowTo's and guides, I still do not know how to accomplish this: My family's CD collection comprises about 700 discs. All of them are in my Mac's 240GB iTunes library as Apple Lossless files. My dad uses a PC (urgh) and wants to have all of the songs on his hard drive, too, to be able to sync them with his iPod. His iPod, however, only has a capacity of 120GB and he has got a 160GB external hard drive for the music files, which is why I cannot simply copy my Lossless library to his PC.

So the callenge is not move the entire library, there are tons of guides to do this. Instead, I want to convert the music to AAC on my Mac first and then only move these files to his PC's external drive via network. As I have put a lot of effort into my Lossless library, I do not want to take any risks (however, I do have a time machine backup).

My thoughts:....................

Applications :: Copy Entire ITunes Library?

Jul 1, 2010

I have my iTunes library stored on an external hard drive when using with my MacBook. I've just bought a Mac Mini and want to copy the entire collection over to my Mini's hard drive, but using File > Library > Organise Library and Consolidate files doesn't appear to work. Most files are copied, but some, randomly, aren't. Most of my purchased songs don't get copied either. What's the best way to ensure all of my music files are copied over to my HD so I can copy to my Mini?

ITunes Doesn't Copy Media To Library

May 6, 2012

I have a number of iTunes libraries, and for the "supplementary" ones, I set the preferences so that iTunes does not copy the media to the Library, instead it just references it.Usually the original media is on a disk other than the one the Library is located on.However I have noticed that when I do this, and add media to the Library, it changes the modification date of all the original media files. This is very impolite and improper behaviour. Why does iTunes change the modification date? For a start, all my backups are made out of sync, because they now think these files have been changed when they haven't.Is there any way to stop this and make iTunes play nice?I haven't tried making the files "read only" but frankly one should not need to do that to avoid the problem (and maybe iTunes would spit the dummy with read only files?).

Applications :: Restoring ITunes Library From Straight Copy

Feb 28, 2009

I did a fresh install of 10.5 in my iMac (which was previously in 10.4.x) recently. I backed up my important stuff (photo and music libraries) by simply copying the libraries (entire folders) to an external drive.
Then I simply copied back the iTunes library to my folder and started iTunes. Unfortunately, iTunes does not seem to show any of my music library content :-(

I know, I know... I should have backed up using the backup feature of iTunes. I promise to learn from my mistakes. However, is there any way I can restore from the straight copy of the iTunes library (incl. several of my iTunes purchases).

ITunes :: Sharing The Movie File On Two Ipods?

Mar 31, 2012

i thinking of using two ipods on one itunes because my movies are stuck to my itunes music files.  

itunes music file has a movies file that you can't seem to move. movies are mixed in with music files.  

this all started because brian wanted to share some of my movies. because it's stuck to my itunes music i'm not sure how to do this.  

before i had brian on another account on my imac.  

i could try and switch my movies file to shared, but i have no luck with switching files to shared.

Applications :: Itunes - Copy Music To Library But Not Video Option?

Aug 6, 2010

So I love keeping all my music in Itunes, well organized and on my local machine, so I have this checked in preferences. I however never want iTunes to save videos in the libary.

I have a large external hardrive that I am using to backup my entire DVD collection in friendly .m4v format. Playing them on my Mac however opens iTunes and copies a file that is nearly 1GB to my local hard drive.
