...now I don't have the same functionality with iTunes. Basically, I can't use iTunes at all anymore as the interface for my music and videos. Once the external drive is mounted, I can navigate through it and play individual songs, but I can't use iTunes to do that. All my previous Playlists show up down the left side of iTunes, but there isn't any music in them.
I downloaded 2 songs yesterday, made a Playlist out of them, and because the path in the Advanced tab of the iTunes Preferences is correct, it automatically added the songs to the external hard drive. I synced my iPod and it was completely erased except for the 2 new songs. Is there a way to use iTunes to navigate my music like I used to when I stored the information on the internal hard drive but keep the information on the external drive? I have a Mac running Snow Leopard and the latest version of iTunes.

My computer with my iTunes library died.† I bought a new MacBook pro laptop.† I can get the songs I purchased from iTunes on my computer but some songs I have on my iPad were from personal CDs. How do I getthoseback on my library on my computer?
I want to transfer the music from my iPad, most of which is not purchased from iTunes, to the new computer (PC) but getting a message stating that the device is syched to another computer.¬† Anyway to make my new computer the home computer and transfer the non-iTunes music without erasing the content of the iPad?
I have been encountering a current issue that I find to be alarming, and want to know if anyone else knows how to remedy the issue. I have OS X Lion and all my software is up to date; I have an iPad 2 and it is also up to date. There has been an issue when I try to sync my music from iTunes to my iPad. It gets to the final stage of syncing, and then the music starts to download, and then it will only download a couple songs onto the iPad and then the computer will freeze. It forces me to completely shut down my computer, and it is really concerning me now. The whole computer is moving completely slow, almost to the point where a simple click on an application causes the rainbow spinning wheel.
I have several music videos in my iTunes library and for some reason they are no longer syncing to my iPad.They show in iTunes on my computer, and all my music syncs, but the videos do not show in the music location on my iPad, or in the video folder for my iPad.† In the past they would show up in video icon, but now they no longer do.
I obtained a song Banjo from iTunes. Now I want to remove it permanently from iTunes so it will not sync with my iPad or iPhone. I have removed the item from my Music Library and my iTunes Media on my Mac.† Then I synch my iPad and then the song reappears in iTunes.† I would like to remove the song from iTunes and the iPad and IPhone PERMANENTLY.†
A good friend of mine had over 1500 songs ripped from CD on my MacBook. In a hurry before a trip she purchased a new iPhone and new iPad and in the syncing to get Address book and calendar and photos synced up a big change happened on the laptop. All the music appears to be gone.Exclamation points in iTunes and practically nothing in the iTunes Music folder. The macbook is running 10.5.8.I have tried search on the laptop... I cannot see the files. I have tried mounting the macbook as target disk and using Data Recue 3 in demo mode to see if I can "see" the files they do not show up. Somehow iTunes knew they were there before so it lists the songs with the exclamation point and given the huge unused space on the macbook disk it sure seems like the files should be there.
Unfortunately, my friend only has her original CDs as backup.How can I recover the files which were on that disk?† The iPad and iPhone are on the road and we think the music got removed from them as well.

I have one, perhaps two or more problems here.¬† I need more info to even know, but I have a few hundred songs¬† imported from my CD collection into my macbook pro itunes application.¬† ¬†
I now also have an ipad-1 which I inherited from my wife.¬† It makes me wait 90 days to sync from the cloud my "purchased" music, but, putting that aside, what about my songs I purchased outside of itunes and imported into itunes?¬† I don't seem to be able to copy and paste them into my ipad when it is connected to my macbook.¬†
So I already had an iPad mini which was synced to an iTunes account on a Dell laptop running Windows. However, the laptop which it was synced to broke down and I am unable to switch it on so I decided to purchase a 2014 MacBook Pro Retina, which I received a couple of days ago.¬†
I set up the laptop and I created an iTunes account with the same Apple ID as my iPad.
I then purchased a couple of songs on that iTunes account. I then tried to sync the music from my iPad to my new library and visa-versa, but I got the message warning me that it would erase all of the songs on my iPad.¬†
How would I be able to transfer the purchases from my iPad to the library without losing anything?¬†

i don't know what i did in Terminal a few weeks ago and now i'm having problems. I firts noticed this when trying to update my ipad and iphone to ios5.1 itunes kept showing the message "connecting to the iphone software actualisation server" but it stayed this way for hours. I think i touched something in Terminal i didn't had to.Can anyone tell me how to reput iTunes in to its default settings using Terminal?
I'm using iTunes 10.5.3 (3) on Mac OS X 10.7.3¬†When I drag and drop music from my iTunes library onto the iPad the iPad will first start to 'sync' but I'll notice that it immediately starts to try and sync up all of my music (I have more music than I have space on my iPad so that would just fail eventually but it starts the slow wi-fi sync of all my music).¬†I check the settings for the iPad (via iTunes) and I notice that the Music tab's "sync" option has suddenly been enabled again (when I've previously turned it off).¬†
This is very strange and annoying as all I want to do is copy music from iTunes onto my iPad. I can do this no problem with my iPhone (has the same sync settings turned off and that doesn't re-enable the sync setting when I drag and drop music from iTunes to it? The only difference from my iPad is that i have the apps tab 'sync' option turned on - see P.s below for more on that)¬†
if I turn off syncing of apps for my iPad I get a message that tells me 22 apps will be deleted and that all data will be lost as well. I'm assuming because some apps I've paid for and some are free I'll be able to re-download them no problem, it's just that some apps have extra settings/configurations on them that I'd rather not lose and I just don't see how turning off the 'sync' option would affect them? Just leave them on the iPad device and stop trying to sync them with iTunes??

I previously used Windows with my Ipod - they were synced. I have since purchased a Macbook Pro. My previous Itunes playlist (windows) is on the Ipod, but no longer on my current Itunes (macbook). I want to play music from my Ipod on my Mac and possible transfer music from the Ipod to the Mac. I have ticked 'manually manage', when I plug in the Ipod, however, it does not show any music Ipod content on Itunes.
I had downloaded some music from the net and placed it under my home folder, music, iTunes, iTunes Music, Music.¬† Under iTunes Music is all of my music, including the new music I filed there.¬† But when I open the iTunes Program, the new music is not in my iTunes Library there.¬†how I can get my new purchase visible in my iTunes Library in my iTunes Program?¬† All of the other music in the file is visible.

Two songs purchased from iTunes store today.† Download looked OK, new purchases do show in Store>Purchased list.† I added ratings, and songs went to smart playlist for top rated songs.† BUT songs do not appear in Library>Music where all songs are. Search indicates they do not exist. It is from this library I drag to other lists. But without them there I am stumped.† Never seen this before.
When I transfer music from finder to itunes I click and drag the folder (artist) from finder onto the itunes window, but the album and artist don't show up in itunes.¬† If I search itunes for individual songs I find them in "unknown album".¬† Why doesn't the album and artist transfer and go into itunes?
