Mac :: Listening To Itunes Via Earbuds And Phone Rang?
Oct 13, 2009
just cracked my 17" mbp screen. listening to itunes via earbuds and phone rang. got up to answer and laid earbuds down (1 on table, 1 on keyboard). as i went to get the phone, i kicked the magsafe and it spun the mbp and caused the screen to jet closed....right on the earbud, cracking it.should i pay the $700 to replace the screen on my 2+ yr old mbp or just get one of the new ones?
I just got a pair of new standard Apple earbuds with the mic and when plugged into my MacBook (late '08) iTunes keeps randomly opening. Sometimes music starts playing, with the odd pause and restart. Is this a known thing, or are my earbuds faulty?
I have all these albums and songs on my phone and I don't know where they came from. I haven't downloaded them, they aren't in my library and I haven't synced with another computer. I have done a sync over and over anot nothing. I have even done a synch and took all the music off. I think it is 'other' stuff but don't know how to get it off of there.
I want to be able to stream my itunes library outside my network. Like if I am at work or wherever, I can control my itunes library and listen to it over the internet. this wouldnt be public and only I could access it. Is this possible?
I can only use 1 headphone at work, so I'd like to have both the left and right channels come out that 1 earbud, which would essentially be a mono signal instead of stereo.
Is there a way to do this? There's no balance tool in iTunes, and in OSX sound prefs, I can pan the sound all the way to one side, but that doesn't actually combine the channels, it just only plays that one side.
The other day I was listening to a iTunes radio station, and enjoyed it. Like a doofus, I didn't put that stream in a playlist and now I'm left to stare at 395 total streams in that category without a clue as to which one it was. Is there any way to look and see what I was listening to the other day to find the specific stream?
In my search on the internet, I found one thread that referenced listening history back in version 3 and another thread by a person with my same problem that was unanswered.
White macbook pro that was purchased in December of 2010.I was listening to music on ITunes last night, the music stopped and the computer was making some weird noise and froze up. I held the power button to shut it down. Let it sit for a couple minutes and then powered it back on. When it powered it on, it still made the clicking noise, and displayed a blank screen that had a flashing folder with a "?" in it. That's all it did. The noise was coming from the left side of the laptop.
So I checked the threads on here and tried multiple ways and cant figure this out.
I have a MBP, itunes 10.1.1, and a western digital passport essential.
I loaded pictures and my old itunes library off a HP pavilion desktop.
On my Mac, when I try and open my external hard drive off the desktop and click my itunes library file I stored from my old HP it simply wont open. I right click it and click open with itunes and the file icon fades off my screen very quickly like its trying to import it but wont. I have tried dragging it and holding option when opening itunes, which actually does display the playlist but only with explanation points because the files cannot be found.
I just want to be able to plug my external in and listen to my playlist I have stored on the western digital, on my mac book without erasing my current itunes playlist on my MBP.
Keep track of hours of music listened to in say a continuous 2 week span. This can be synced through your ipod and within itunes itself. And give ratings related to how much hours of music you have listened to in the those 2 weeks. So if you've listened to I dunno 12 hours of music within that span, it'll keep track and give you a rating like: 'casual listener' or if you have totaled up 40 hours of music listening you're an 'avid music fan'. I dunno what to call them but I like knowing how much music I've really listened to recently and this would be cool.
Or to take it even further, see what genre (granted you have this organized in iTunes) that you're listening to most and this can go even deeper.
iTunes skips songs when I try to listen to a shared library from my Mac Pro, on my MacBook Pro.
This always happens when trying to "fast-forward" through a song (it'll skip to the next song).
I'm assuming that this is some kind of networking issue, because if I let the song play long enough, for what I perceive as enough time to transfer the song entirely from one computer to the other, it won't skip to the next song when fast-forwarding.
The two computers are in adjacent rooms, connected wirelessly via an AEBS on 802.11N (g compatibility mode).
I think its safe to say that the ibuds are utter crap. I've gone through three pair in 2 years.
I now realize that I end up changing every 5 months because they just don't last.
Granted, I mistreat them. Rolled up in pockets, stuffed in backpack, etc.
But I HAVE to believe that there's a solid pair out there that has the 4 things I absolutely NEED:
b) sound isolation. I'm always at the library to stand my music being heard so I usually keep it very, very low. I'd like to change that.
c) Earbuds...I hate headphones.
d) Nothing too outrageous price-wise.
I had an old pair passed down by the guy who sold me my iphone. It was amazing but unf. i lost one of the earbud cushions (has to be screwed in) so I cant use it anymore. It was azur blue, no name or label on it, white ear cushions, a MICROphone (with just a press 'on/off' and 'mic' on it). If anyone knows this brand I'd love to track it down.
I just received a usb cable to connect my samsung phone to my ibook. The computer does not recognize my phone when I plug it in. Additionally, they sent a mini disc with it. Is there something I am supposed to do to get this to work?
So about a week ago I got a new Macbook Pro with retina. I set everything up on it including Itunes. When I was setting up my itunes i signed into my account then took my iphone and synced my iphone to the itunes on the new computer. Everything was showing up on the computer so I though everything had sunk and was backuped. But when I was going through it today I noticed a few of my artist are missing some songs. I tried backing up and syncing the phone to computer again but NOTHING IS WORKING.
I was in I-tunes just trying to sync my music on my I-Phone and it asked me to upgrade...well when I went to upgrade when it was finished I lost everything on my phone...how do I retrieve this information back?
I would like to change the computers that my iphone is connected with, but itunes wpn't let me do that without loosing all the data thats on my phone and replacing it with data from the itunes acount, even though there is only 5 songs on it?
The music library on my desktop itunes program has all my songs. But I just want some of those songs -- which are contained in a itunes playlist I created -- to be loaded onto my iphone. How can I load only a particular set of songs, or a playlist of songs, onto my phone and not my entire music library?
I freaking hate iTunes. Programs for simple tasks like uploading music onto devices should be efficently coded, not resource hogs that are incredibly unintuitive and needlessly complicated. Why can't we just drag and drop music and videos directly onto our phone like we can with just about every other media player? I already have all of my music organized just as I want it on my computer. Just let me drag the folders I want directly into the iPhone without having to bother with a 100mb download that runs like crap.
There's absolutely no excuse why such a simple function needs such a complicated program. Quote:..................
