ITunes :: Itunes Won't Open - Stuck On Box With Apple - Acting Like Starting Up

Jan 21, 2009

I have an iBook G4 that runs on OS X. Today, my software update box popped up, and I downloaded the new version of itunes. It worked. Then the other update didn't finish. I'm not sure if that's connected. Now, my itunes won't open. When I first tried, nothing would happen. So I restarted the computer, but it wouldn't full restart (stuck on the box with an apple, acting like it was starting up but never did). So I did an archive install with my discs. That worked. But now when I try to open itunes, a box pops up and says that "you cannot use this application with this version of OS X." What?? I feel tricked and panicky. What can I do?

Applications :: ITunes Store Acting Very Slow?

Oct 15, 2009

I was wondering for any of you in the US if the iTunes store has been acting very slow (for about the past day)? It takes forever to load pages and it takes 3 hours to download an HD show when it should be taking 10 minutes tops. I know my internet connection is fine because everything else is working at its normal pace, but for some reason, navigating the iTunes store and downloading has been quite sluggish.

Hardware :: Apple Earbuds Open Up ITunes

Jun 28, 2010

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?

MacBook :: Why Isn't ITunes Starting

Jun 23, 2014

I have a Mid 2007 MacBook (Core 2 Duo, 2.20 GHz, 2GB, OS X 10.6.8 Snow Leopard) and I am having a problem with iTunes.  I have a fresh install and was going to sell the computer to a client when I realized that iTunes had a serious problem.  Whenever I go to launch iTunes, I click on the dock icon.  It bounces multiple times on the first attempt, but the program never launches by showing "iTunes" in the top menu.  The little light never comes on beneath the icon either.  Also note that on each attempt afterwards the icon only bounces once and then stops.

OS X :: ITunes Starting In 32bit Mode

Jun 2, 2010

I was messing around with Audio Hijack and it was working just fine. But now it seems iTunes always starts in 32-bit mode (even without audio hijack running). Also it seems to take quite a while to open the app. If I log in as root (or via a Terminal) I can open iTunes just fine, 64-bit and it opens instantly. Also when I log out OS X hangs a while on the screen you get when he's logging you out (the blue-ish screen).

Applications :: Damaged ITunes Files - Starting Over

Oct 9, 2009

So the last couple of days iTunes has been hell for me. Couple of days ago, when I opened iTunes like any other time, I was presented with an error message saying my itunes library was damaged. Anyway, long story short, I've started over and created a new one and imported all my songs, podcasts, videos etc in. That all worked well, but I was still missing my precious play counts and ratings, though I was able to import my playlists. So what I did was import one of the itunes database files from the "previous itunes libraries" option. What happened then was that it removed all the files that I purchased after the date in which the database file was created. Annoying as I can't remember every song I've purchased.

The 2 main problems at the moment is that the files I purchased are already in my iTunes media folder, I found that out by just searching some songs I remember, but the matter of remembering each one is impossible. I contemplated the idea of "Add to library" but I think all that does is import everything again into the library rather than find any ones that aren't already in it. Is there anyway to get iTunes to automatically find the files that aren't already my library and just add those? Second problem is I have is the dreaded '!' next to many of my songs, again I am sure that I have these files in my media folder (I've checked), iTunes has just (for some reason) not found those files. Again, is there a way for iTunes to automatically find those files? As opposed to me finding and clicking on everyone of those '!'s and locating the files manually?

Applications :: Starting Fresh With ITunes 9.0.1 - Importing Music?

Sep 24, 2009

Had some library troubles with iTunes 9, and decided to do a clean install of not only the program, but of Snow Leopard itself. I was waiting on an iTunes update to come out before I decided to re-load my library in, since I didn't want to risk repeat problems (I've always been one of those bleeding edge-ers, and this is the 1st time I've ever had a problem/held back...guess I learned my lesson). 9.0.1 is out and seems to address the problems I'd been having, but I caught the "start fresh" bug and I want to start over with iTunes. No playlists, play counts, etc need to be saved.

I do have a full backup of my previous system and I'm wondering what the best way to get all of my music back into iTunes is.
- Do I use the Finder to simply drag the contents of my old "iTunes Music" folder into the new "iTunes Media" folder?
- Do I drag the whole folder and drop it onto the iTunes window? (I'm worried this method won't put iPhone apps, ringtones, audiobooks and podcasts in the right place).
- Do I use the import function?
Prior to making the backup, I did upgrade to/select iTunes Media Organization

Basically, when I manually (and using keyboard) press pause when playing back a track, each time I press play again the track starts from the beginning. It has never done this before, ever. I need to find a way to fix it in order to work.

ITunes For Mac :: Disabling From Automatically Starting When Headphone Plugged In

Dec 3, 2014

I have a Macbook Pro running OS X Yosemite Ver 10.10.1. Whenever I plug in my Apple headphone it in, the iTunes automatically starts and I would like to disable the same. I am talking on FaceTime using my head phone, (I am guessing some small movements of headphone triggering this) the  iTunes starts automatically and the songs start to play during the FaceTime call. 

Does any one know how to disable the iTunes from not starting up automatically, whenever a Headphone is inserted into Mac. I can start iTunes whenever I want like any other application. But I just don’t want any automatic starting of iTunes, when I plug the headphone!

Software :: IBook G3 Stuck On Starting Mac Os X?

Nov 25, 2009

My Mom recently purchased an ibook g3 (700mhz 256mb of ram) running Mac os x 10.4.11 off ebay as a Christmas present for my sister and I checked for updates the first chance I got. It showed two updates, quicktime 7.6.4 and some security update labelled 2009-005. While these updates were downloading/installing I noticed iTunes was version 8 and so I told it to install 9.02 but nothing seemed to happen, so I decided I would just do that when the other updates were done. Well the updates finished installing and it said I needed to reboot. So I did and when it got to the "starting mac os x" screen it stopped once the blue bar filled. After about 10 minutes of waiting I held down the power button so I could reboot. When I rebooted the same thing happened again. I do not have the install disk as it did not come with the computer.

MacBook Pro :: Migration Assistant Stuck On Starting Up?

Dec 2, 2014

I have an early 2011 15'' Macbook Pro. 

I recently purchased a 250GB Samsung 840 EVO SSD and used Migration Assistant to transfer my HDD data to it. After installing

the SSD into my computer, I booted up and have been stuck on the following screen for about a couple of hours: 

I'm not sure what to do at this point. I'm afraid that if I hold the power button down for a shut down and restart, this process will start all over.

IMac :: Not Starting Up And Disc Stuck Inside System

Feb 5, 2009

has all my art course work on. When pressing the power button there is no start up, screen stays black. There is a noise from the Disc Drive, when you put your ear close you can hear the Disc spinning, occasionally it starts to make a loader noise like its trying to spin to full speed maybe, but stops before it can. Green light can be seen from bottom, tried unplugging and waiting, tried pressing the cmd R-P keys down at start up. Also tried as suggested on the apple website to use a paper clip to manually eject the disc.

OS X :: Stuck At The Starting Login Window - Normal Boot Halts

Apr 15, 2005

I installed all the Software Updates available, including the iSight and Airport updates (mainly to get rid of them, and I may add these later to my G5 iMac), and now when I reboot, I get no further than the "Starting Windows Login" part...

I have to assume its something to do with adding the updates as it was all working fine before then...

I can start in Safe Mode fine, and I get in OK, but normal boot halts (no errors, mouse works, just goes not go any further) at the "Starting Login Window"

Any thoughts on how to either A) Reverse the Updates B) Get around this?

Applications :: Why Am I Stuck With ITunes

May 16, 2009

Recently, a few of my friends have switched over to Songbird, and I am really tempted to use the program now. I have my own reasons for switching, and I really would prefer it if people did not tell me that iTunes has all the features I need, etc. Why does Apple force me to use iTunes? I love my iPod touch, but I'm beginning to see that there are other programs, such as Songbird, that suit my needs, unlike iTunes. Does anybody know if Apple will get rid of this restriction any time soon?
