ITunes :: Genius Not Working With New Songs?

Apr 7, 2012

I got iTunes match just before Christmas 2011 and also for Christmas I got a few CDs, these were all added to iTunes and everything seemed to be fine. I would try an use genius to get a random playlist but most of the time it would just say: "You can update your Genius results, which may find new information. If iTunes is still unable to create a Genius playlist from this song or artist, please choose another one."  

So I'd pick another song and forget about it. I've been adding music to my iTunes for the last few months and today I went through every new song since adding iTunes Match and not one will work with Genius.  

I know there have been issues with iTunes Match and Genius on iOS devices but I can't find anything on problms with the Mac. 

Any thoughts on what is going on and how to fix it?

MacBook
Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.7)

Applications :: Genius Doesn't Work For All Songs?

May 2, 2010

I keep updating genius but it still doesn't work for any of my daft punk but it recognizes the lesser known band justice. I mean it works for nearly all my hip-hop and most of my rock.

I only have two imixes so far

Indie Rock- Phoenix,cobra starship, death cab for cutie, the dead weather, Lady Hawke ETC.

Hip-Hip mix- Kid Cudi,Kayne west, wale, etc.

But genius mixes and playlist don't work for certain artist.

ITunes For Mac :: In Songs View Sort By (album) Alone Stopped Working

Sep 4, 2014

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. 

Info:
iMac (mid-2007); OSX 10.9.4, iTunes 11.3.1 (2)

Applications :: Genius Feature In ITunes - Exact Usage?

Mar 20, 2010

I've never even turned on the genius feature in iTunes, because I was put off by the link to the store. I have no intention whatsoever of buying anything from the iTunes store, though I do have an account cause I had to buy something else online. Here's my strong suspicion about Genius - that it's really there just to sell you crappy tracks from iTunes. And I have no use for that noise.

But, I like to keep an open mind. What if I'm wrong, and what if it's actually a cool feature? I remember not being sure about the shuffle function, since I like to listen to albums, so for the longest time I didn't use it. But one day I gave it a go, and what do you know. I liked it, for the most part! Here's one additional complication - I got like 50,000 songs in my library and I listen to all kinds of genres. Tell me about Genius - how do you use it?

OS X :: Drag Songs From Playlists Into Different Order / Itunes Unable To Drag Songs

Feb 4, 2009

So over the past few months I have noticed this small bug/glitch in iTunes... and it is very annoying.

I cannot drag songs from playlists into different order. iTunes just doesn't let me drag at all.

I have to quit iTunes, then restart it. It will work for one time, but as soon as I got back to "Library" and then try to go back and edit a playlist, I have to exit iTunes.

Any fix for this?

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?

I have 2 macs with two completely independent iTunes databases. They are used for differnt purposes and contain different music. I really do not want to merge these two databases.

From time to time I need to selectively transfer some few songs from the one computer to the other one. Is there a clever way I can achieve this? I would like to transfer the files including the metadata.

ITunes :: Songs Being Cut-off?

May 16, 2012

I recently cleaned out my computer and reinstalled all of my applications, photos, videos, and music. Now, some of my songs are being cutoff before the song reaches the end. I suspect this is due to iTunes inaccurately placing gaps between my songs.

Applications :: ITunes Que Songs?

Aug 26, 2010

How come this feature has never been released? How many times have you been listening to music with friends through a stereo, or simply enjoying a good shuffle list, and all of a sudden you're struck with an urging to hear a different song. Problem is, you don't want to leave the one you're on, you only want to listen to it next. And even after you finish listening to it, you want to be able to resume your previous shuffle list. Seems common enough right?

Then why has Apple never released this feature? I understand the ability to make customizable playlists, but we're not talking about lots of songs. Just one single song. And it could be designed to only allow one song to be qued. Not too challenging I would think.

And it would be so easy to implement. Add a button next to the genius button on the bottom of iTunes with a big Q on it. Highlight the song you want, press that button, and BAM. Done. On an iPod touch/iPhone, just swipe over the song you want to que up (like in email), and a red button will pop up saying "que" and done. And on an iPod with a click wheel, maybe hold down the center button and the fast-foward button when you're highlighted over the song you want to que and done.

Applications :: ITunes Won't Add Mp3 Songs?

Oct 5, 2008

This has happened to me many times now. Certain .mp3 songs will not open in iTunes at all. I will double-click on them and iTunes will pop up, but the song will not appear in the Library. I have also tried dragging it into the library manually, but it still doesn't show up.

I have read about this problem before, so it is not an isolated issue, however no one seems to have an answer that actually works. Some suggested changing the file to .mp4, but this doesn't work either.

ITunes :: New Songs Won't Play

Mar 2, 2012

I've recently copied some cassette tapes onto the computer (using Audio Hijack Pro) as mp3 files. *None* of those longer than a minute and nineteen seconds will play past that point in iTunes on Lion. They show up as their proper length (and are *not* set to cut short in options), but playing them, they just skip to the next song at 1:19 as if they'd finished, no error or anything. If I drag the slider to a point past there, the counters stop at that point and it starts the next song when I release it. The files play perfectly well if I press the spacebar in Finder, or if I open them with Quicktime Player, or if I use my iPod Touch, or if I use iTunes in Windows XP, but not on the Mac. Every last one of them... and no others. Older tracks play perfectly, regardless of source or format.

All software is the latest version available. (Within reasonable meanings of "latest" for XP, at least.)
