ITunes :: Library File: Apple-TV Shows Non Existing Podcasts?

Apr 9, 2012

My AppleTV keeps showing old podcasts which don't exist anymore in my iTunes library. Of course I can't play them because the file has since long been deleted. I don't see them anywhere in iTunes, so I can't delete them from my library. 

I found the reason for this behaviour: those old podcasts are still present in my iTunes library xml file. I deleted this file and restarted iTunes. iTunes will create a brand new xml file from the original .itl file. However, the old non-existent podcasts are still present in the new xml file. So the error must be present in my .itl file.

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.

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?

Applications :: ITunes Library - To Replace Existing Folders'

Aug 13, 2010

I copied my cousin's itunes music folder onto my external hard drive so I could add it to my own.

I dragged the artists into my iTunes music folder.

I was asked whether I wanted to replace existing folders... e.g we both had "Arctic Monkeys" folders.

I CLICKED REPACE ALL... What a mistake.

I'm very much into music and I have lots of songs, whereas my cousin only had a small library.

Now, my "Arctic Monkeys" folder only has a few songs in that she had, and i've lost loads from my library from many artists that both of us had.

ITunes For Mac :: Memory Shows 2x Amount Of Music In Library

Jun 25, 2014

I apparently have 111gb of music on my computer, but only 55.something in my iTunes library. Every time something is downloaded or added, I add it right to iTunes. There is nothing that has been downloaded or ripped and not added to iTunes. Thus, the amount of music in my iTunes library should match what my memory actually shows. 

This is what my memory shows: [URL] ...

And this is what my iTunes shows: [URL] ...

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.

Applications :: Accessing Podcasts Library In External Drive

May 13, 2010

My MBP is running out of space and since I have a external drive that right now I don't use I'd like to move part of my podcasts library in the external HD. I have already copied the podcasts from the iTunes folder in my Mac to the External Drive and I have deleted the local copies. Now, I tried to add them to the library (File > Add to Library) but in this way it copies the file in my local hard drive. How can I keep the files in the external drive but make them accessible from iTunes like they were locally stored?

ITunes :: Unknown Permissions For Its Library File?

Apr 24, 2012

iTunes often tells me it can't save my library file anymore. When I check my itl file in the Finder, it isn't linked to iTunes anymore ("open with") and my permissions are listed as "you have unknown access". If I quit and restart iTunes it says the Library file cannot be found. A simple reboot solves this problem every time, but it shouldn't happen in the first place.

ITunes :: Use One Library.itl File For Two Different Media Folders?

May 20, 2012

Can one itunes library.itl file be used for music in two different itunes media files? I have an Air. Want to have music in MP3 format on the Air and the same music in Lossless format on a large external HD. Would like same playlists etc for both types. Lossless takes up too much room on the Air but for playing tunes on the road, MP3 is fine. Want to keep same music as Lossless for archiving and for playing on very good speakers at times; would be kept on the external HD. Would like to have the same playlists, ratings, etc., for music that is in both MP3 and Lossless format. For example, rating Dylan's Blood on the Tracks album as a 5 for both the tracks that are in MP3 format (that live on the Air) and the same tracks in Lossless format (that reside on the external HD). I realize I could have separate iTunes folders on the Air and the Ext HD but then would have to duplicate all the data on playlists, ratings, etc. for the two independent iTunes folders.

ITunes :: Rebuild Its Library File From IPhone?

Jun 16, 2012

Foolishly, i excluded my ~/music folder from my Time Machine backup, and when i restored following a recent system drive meltdown, i lost all of my iTunes library files - the .itl, the Previous iTunes Libraries, the .xml, everything. However, my media was on a different drive, which is still spinning. Additionally, i had my library synched to my iPhone, and i had Matched what iTunes could Match to the cloud. So i have all of my media locally, i have most of my media in the cloud and or on my phone, and i have most of my playlists in the cloud or on the phone. What is the best way for me to put my data back into iTunes and return to normalcy? In that i have an empty library right now, i have turned synching off on my phone.  What i most want to get back is playlists. What i secondly want to get back are playcounts and ratings.

ITunes :: Cannot Access Its Library File Over Network

Jun 26, 2012

I want to set up my old Mac Mini as a home server for our Apple Tv2 and my Macbook pro, but I am having difficulty setting up iTunes. All of our music is stored on an external hard drive, attached to the Mini and i have set up an iTunes library on the Mini too. So far so good, and I can access this library on the MacBook as a shared library, and the Apple TV through home sharing.

But, I want to go further and add to and edit the shared library (i.e. the one on the Mini) using iTunes on my MacBook. Am I able to also access the library file stored on the Mini from iTunes on the MacBook pro, so I am using the same library file on two instances of iTunes on two different computers?

Currently when I try (by opening iTunes on the MacBook while holding down option, and 'choosing' the library on the Mini, i get the following error message:The iTunes Library.itl file is locked, on a locked disk, or you do not have write permission for this file
