Applications :: ITunes Duplicated Video Files And Hide Them

May 15, 2009

I tunes imported vid files that I had on my hd last year, now, I decided that I didn't want these in ITunes, so I deleted them from ITunes. I then burned all of these files to a DVD and then deleted them from my downloads folder where they were always kept. Today I noticed that deep within ITunes, there is a folder called ITunes music and in that folder there is a sub folder called movies, where I discovered duplicates of the vid files I had previously deleted from my downloads folder which were imported by ITunes last year. I didn't know this could happen in ITunes!

ITunes :: Downloaded And Encoded Mp3 Files - Getting Duplicated In It?

Feb 15, 2012

iTunes 10.5.3 (3). The last group of songs I downloaded and encoded to mp3 continue to duplicate and show up in itunes everytime I sync my iPhone or iPod. I keep the library stored on an external hard drive and always change "iTunes media folder location" to the EHD, which is also annoying. I've deleted the default folder in Lion but the songs keep showing up in m4a format. I then have to start all over. (tags, info etc.) This is the first time I've had this problem and I'd like it to stop.

Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.3)

ITunes For Mac :: Moved Library From PC To NAS - Duplicated Files In Album Folders

Aug 20, 2014

I recently moved my itunes library from PC to a NAS to use with my new Mac. With the exception of a couple hiccups everything was fine. I then asked iTunes to copy all the music to my ipod and convert the tracks to 256mb (I have re-ripped my cd collection as lossless and chosen the option to replace existing copies of the songs which were lossy). 

I have 264GB of music in my iTunes library but when I looked at my NAS just now I saw 540GB of music backed up!! I then looked in one folder and saw every song had been duplicated so songs were named things like "Song.m4a" and "Song1.m4a", but this hasn't happened in every album folder - of course I have way too many to go through them individually. 

How I can stop it from continuing and most importantly how to clear all the duplicates from the folders on my NAS so it only holds the 264GB of music that the iTunes library displays.

Applications :: ITunes, Duplicated And Playlists?

Jun 23, 2010

While getting iTunes ready for my new iPhone tonight I found something strange. I have duplicates showing up in playlists that ARE NOT duplicates in my Music library.

For example, in my Library I show to have 9 albums, 104 items and 892.4MB of Bruce Springsteen.

I created a new Playlist called iPhone 4. This playlist will of course be used for my new device. I'm moving from 16GB to 32GB so I can double the amount of music on my iPhone. Well in that iPhone 4 playlist Bruce Springsteen shows to have 9 albums and 149 songs and 1.22GB. There are several duplicates in there of songs. There are also several others artists with similiar results.

I guess my question is, how can there be duplicates in the playlist, if they are not showing as duplicates in my Library?

MacBook Pro :: Shared Time Machine And Duplicated Files

Apr 2, 2012

I have a new MBP (running Lion) and an older MacBook (running Leopard).  I'd like both to run Time Machine to a shared external hard drive which I think I've worked out.  My question is whether or not TM will store duplicate versions of the same files (particularly photos, videos, etc.) on the external hard drive, thus using up the EHD capacity more quickly, or will one file be saved and just recognized as being on both computers by TM.

OS X :: Cannot Save ITunes - Volume Keeps Getting Duplicated

Dec 12, 2009

Every so often I have iTunes tell me that it can't save because the volume has changed. In /volumes I see that I have Drobo, Drobo 1, Drobo 2, Drobo 3, Drobo 4, Drobo 5. How can I not have my computer create more of these alias that cause me issues. This also gives me issues with Final Cut Express.

OS X :: Safe To Delete Duplicated Applications Folder

May 5, 2009

When I first got my Mac I wanted to put the applications folder in the dock. But I copied it to the desktop first. And then I realized I didn't need to do that. So I put the folder back into the App folder. Now I want to delete them and I need to know if it's okay. Because they seem to be duplicates...but I'm not sure.

ITunes :: Video Files Not Playing?

Apr 4, 2012

In iTunes on OS Lion on an iMac, I started getting an error message that the "video needs QuickTIme and it is no longer supported by iTunes." What gives? The files are m4v and won't play even 5 minutes after I download them. 

If I download them to my MacBook then access them through the shared media, they will play and become part of the library on the iMac. Seems like a lot of bother just to watch a video.  

Anyone have a clue about what's going on?

OS X :: How To Hide Hidden Files

Aug 2, 2010

I was messing around in the Terminal and accessed root [sudo -s]

I assumed root access would end upon closing the terminal, but I guess not.

I can see all my hidden files (e.g., mach_kernal). How do I disable root and get back to not being able to see my hidden files?

I've learned my lesson - never mess around with things you don't understand.

OS X :: How To Hide Invisible Files On Leopard 10.5.7

Jun 25, 2009

On Leopard 10.5.7, I had to unhide my invisible files for some job using the command:
#defaults write AppleShowAllFiles YES
#killall Finder

I am trying the reverse commands but the Finder still shows files what are supposed to be hidden.I tried:
defaults write AppleShowAllFiles -bool false
defaults write AppleShowAllFiles NO
followed by a killall Finder and even reboot.

I would like to avoid a re-install. Who can confirm a working solution as some in this forum suggest that the above reverse commands are no longer effective on Leopard?

ITunes For Mac :: Video Files Skipping Frames - RAM Not The Reason

Sep 6, 2014

MacBook Pro
13-inch, Mid 2009
Processor  2.26 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
Memory  8 GB 1067 MHz DDR3
Graphics  NVIDIA GeForce 9400M 256 MB
Software  OS X 10.9.4 (13E28)
itunes version 11.3
160gb rotational hard drive w 75 GB free space 

my problem is that tv shows and movies downloaded from the iTunes store skips frames (stutters, pauses call it what you will) every 5 or 10 seconds while playing. The sound continues but the video stutters. The problem appears after watching for about 5 minutes, its fine until then, sometimes it gets a bit better but it never goes away.The movies are not HD, they're standard definition files. 

I've tried many different movies and tv shows purchased from the iTunes store and its always the same.It happens in full screen and half size. It happens when i open the files in quicktime player as well. I have no other applications running while the problem happens. It does NOT happen when I put the files onto my girlfriend's iPad, they playback no problem. 

This problem did not happen when I first purchased the laptop, it has only appeared in recent months. At first I thought it was a RAM issue as I only had 2gb of RAM so I upgraded to 8gb and while my computer is much faster in general the problem has not gone away at all, it's exactly the same. Then I thought it was because my hard drive was full, (which it was) so I cleared some space and now have 75gb free on a 160gb drive. Still skipping frames.  It does not happen when I play video files not purchased from iTunes store in quicktime.

OS X :: How To Hide Files That Are Located Besides User/Username... In Terminal

Jul 13, 2009

I've been wondering, if there is a way to hide files that are not located in "User/Username/...." in Terminal?

The command I use to hide the files for example is: chflag hidden ~/Desktop/*

However, if I the file/folder I want to hide is not in 'User/Username..." I will not be able to hide it... So how do you change it so that you can hide the folders that are not located in "User/Username"?

Also, I've ran into a problem!

My "Username" that one that has an house icon is missing when I access it from Machintosh HD --> Users Folder.

I guessed that it was hidden somehow but not too long ago it was in the User folder... So I typed in "defaults write ShowAllFiles True" and I found a bunch of weird files on my Desktop and my Machintosh HD... and I found the Username house icon... I do not know what I did in terminal that hid it.

OS X Mountain Lion :: Can't Hide Folders And Files That Are Usually Hidden

Sep 8, 2014

This past weekend I transferred my OS and apps to a newly installed SSD drive.

During the process I had to move some files around in order to get The OS and Apps on the SSD.

I used a technique that utilizes the Terminal and the chflags command.

My issue is now I can not hide the files and folders that are usually hidden.

I can't remember the exact method I used to unhide hidden folders and files. I can't even find a reference to it in my web browsers history.I have searched on the web for solutions along these lines: defaults write AppleShowAllFiles -boolean FALSE ; killall Finderchflags hidden sudo chflags hidden 

But none of these approaches have worked. I have downloaded Onyx, TinkerTool and Show Hide Invisible Files.

I have used them as best I understand to hide the normally hidden files and folders, but nothing has worked.
