Applications :: Time Machine Transfer Of ITunes Error Between ITunes Versions?

Feb 21, 2009

I am a new mac user (total convert--am on my second iMac in a month and am about to buy a macbook), and am having trouble with my itunes service. My first 24" iMac developed a clicking HDD, so I was lucky enough to be able to bring it back to the shop for a replacement iMac. I made a time machine backup of the first Mac and copied directly to the second one (which was come I haven't been using macs prior to now? I've lost dozens of backups on PC). The only issue I've had is with iTunes--I keep getting an error that the iTunes library is newer than the version of iTunes on the computer. Is there anyway to fix this without losing my entire library of songs? I did make up a physical copy of the iTunes folder on my first Mac, just in case, so I assume that I could delete iTunes and reinstall a fresh copy, update it, and then copy the iTunes folder over to the new version. But this is a Windows approach to the issue and there is probably a simpler way of fixing this. Alternately, I could do the same but sync my iPod and copy everything to my library that way.

Applications :: Can I Have Two Versions Of ITunes At The Same Time

Jan 23, 2010

I once accomplished this before on my old iMac G3 because I had two installations of OS X running on seperate partitions. I was able to run either version when ever I wanted. I want to do this again, but not have to have two OS X installs. Here's my reasoning I need iTunes 9 to sync my iPod because I have a touch, however I hate the bloat and would like to use iTunes 3 or 4 for just casual MP3 listening. I tried using Pacifist but iTunes 3 refuses to run. Was it my method or is it something to do with iTunes 3 not liking Leopard?

Applications :: How To Stop ITunes From Downloading HD Versions

Sep 21, 2008

Every time I buy a TV show which has HD, I downloads two versions. I don't even want the HD version as I watch the shows on the way to work with my iPod. When I simply 'delete' the HD shows from my downloads list, they show up again whenever I turn on iTunes or check for old purchases. How can I stop iTunes from downloading the HD versions?

Applications :: ITunes - Receive Error Every Time - Update IPhone Apps

Oct 18, 2010

I receive this error every time I tell iTunes to download the updates to my iPhone apps. Funny thing is, I only get the error once, if I click Update All again it goes through without a problem. This has been going on for almost 6 months through multiple versions of iTunes, iOS and a whole new iPhone setup from scratch.

Applications :: ITunes Library - Maintaining Multiple Bitrate Versions

Feb 7, 2009

I have iTunes set to rip at lossless, which is fine, as I am willing to add terabytes of storage to my library if necessary. I have a 120 gig classic, I don't mind the fact that I can fit less songs in a higher quality bitrate on this device. I also just got a 8 gig nano, and I would like to upload everything onto it in 128 instead of lossless. I don't want to convery my who library as I would prefer to preserve it is lossless.

Applications :: ITunes 9.0.3 Loses Apple Lossless Versions After Conversion?

Mar 1, 2010

It used to work: You highlighted the songs you wanted to create an Apple Lossless version of, and they would show up underneath the AIFF version.

No longer.

iTunes 9 still could do this.

iTunes 9.0.3 loses them. It processes them, puts them into the right folder, but you can't see them in iTunes.


1. Can I downgrade to iTunes 9.0 where this bug wasn't present?

2. Or do I have to manually import into iTunes? (This would erase the playcount, I suppose)

Or is there any other way around this bug? (or isn't it a bug, but a feature that has been disabled by Apple for whatever reason?)

PS: I found a place where I can download iTunes 9.0.1 for OS X. Are there any possible problem when installing an older version over a newer version, e.g. in regards to the library?

Applications :: Time Machine Keeps Backing Up ITunes Library

Sep 19, 2010

I'm having a problem with time machine repeatedly backing up my /~/Music/iTunes directory. Everytime I plug in my drive, I get a 192Gb backup which will loop continuously. I've confirmed that it's this directory using BackupLoupe and have reset time machine, repaired the disk with no errors, completely reformatted my time machine disk, and continue to have these issues. Console shows no real issue, backupd process simply requests a 192Gb backup and proceeds with it. While I cannot be sure, this appears to have started sometime after the 10.6.4 update.

OS X :: ITunes 10 Deleted Library - Did Time Machine Backup Prior To ITunes 10?

Sep 7, 2010

I just updated my iTunes but it appears it deleted my library. This sucks because I have spent HOURS upon HOURS sorting it, renaming crooked song titles, finding covers and all that stuff. I used time machine to back up my computer like 5 days ago, but I can't figure out how to use it. I wish I could just select that given day (when I made my last backup) and make it turn everything back to what it was back then.How do I do this exactly? I don't care at all if I have to go back to the old iTunes (obviously they will fix this eventually!) - I just want it to look like it did a few days ago.

Applications :: ITunes Empty After Restoring From Time Machine Backup?

Sep 19, 2010

When I was setting up the MBP, I opted to restore from a Time Machine backup and expected everything to go off without a hitch.

When I opened iTunes though, everything was blank -- no songs or videos were listed at all. My playlists were still there though but also blank.

When I checked my Music folder in Finder, everything was still there so I tried manually adding one mp3 to see if it would show up on iTunes. iTunes just played the mp3 but it still wouldn't show up in the Music list.

Applications :: Time Machine Error - 43/since Updating To 10.5.5

Jan 14, 2009

I have updated 2 iMacs and 1 Macbook to 10.5.5 recently and all three of them have started giving this Time Machine error occasionally (every few days). The Macbook and 1 iMac are backing up to an AEBS disk, but the other iMac has a direct attached USB disk (both are WD MyBooks). I have never had a Time Machine error on any of these machines before. The most recent error from the iMac with the attached drives is:

Applications :: Time Machine To Airport Extreme Data Transfer Rate?

May 25, 2009

I am doing an initial back up for Time Machine. I've got 56Gigs worth of data to back up from my 2Ghz Uni Body MacBook (with 4gig of Ram & running OS 10.5.7). I have a newly purchased Airport Extreme base station to which is connected to a Western Digital 1 Gig External HD. I am getting a transfer rate of about 1 gig per hour. Is it really this slow? I am using a 5Ghz network to reduce interference and they are very close to each other.

I tried connecting the WD drive to the MB. After I switched off Virus Barrier V5 and stopped Spotlight indexing it was quite fast. However there didn't seem a way of tricking this backup to think it was done via Airport Extreme. How could this be done?

It looks like my MB is going to have to be left on and stay at home for the next couple of days!

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Does Time Machine "restore" Change All Subsequent Versions

Apr 24, 2012

This evening I some how accidently "restored" a document I had been working on to a version I started about a month ago.  I honestly have no idea how this happened since I hadn't even opened Time Machine when noticed the document was the old version (the program and document had been open on my laptop for days). Anyway, I thought maybe I could just go back to the version from yesterday or a few days ago, but it seems that once today's version is restored to March 28th's version, all subsequent versions are also restored. If there is any way to find a previous version of this document (that is not the March 28th one!), I would be estactic.

ITunes :: Transfer Its Library From Laptop To External Drive Connected To Time Capsule?

Jun 26, 2012

I have a 1TB Time capsule, I would like to attach a USB drive to the Time Capsule and transfer my iTunes Library to it so I can run itunes from wifi. I am new to network stuff. My current iTunes library is on a USB drive velcro'd to the back of my Macbook - rather inconvenient, the USB port is loose. The music files are external but the library files with ratings/play counts are in the iTunes folder.

ITunes :: Unable To Download SD Versions When Purchasing HD Shows

Jul 4, 2012

Previously buying an HD TV show gave you the SD download too, so you could playback on older devices not HD compatible, or perhaps more importantly sync smaller files to iPhones/iPads if you wanted to get more content on sacrificing the resolution. Last few TV shows I've bought only the HD downloads, and no matter how much I fiddle with Prefs and the 'prefer HD when available' checkbox in iTunes Store 'Purchased' I cannot seem to get the SD to download.
