Applications :: ITunes 10 Removing Album By Artist Column?

Sep 3, 2010

I just downloaded the new itunes 10, and the first thing I noticed was the "album by artist" column under the music library. I don't like it at all. I want to remove it, but I can't! I'm not talking about the "album artist" column. This is totally new with the iTunes 10. When I try to remove it by, it only gives me the option of sort and artwork.

Applications :: Need To Rename MP3s (Artist / Album)

Aug 25, 2010

I'm not sure why I'm having such a hard time finding an app to do this, because it seems like a common task. I have a bunch of MP3 recordings that are untitled. They will all have the same artist and album name. Rather than import them into iTunes individually and entering the same information over and over again, I'd like to find a program that will allow me to assign an artist and album name (and maybe other info, like genre, etc.) in a batch prior to importing the files into iTunes.

ITunes For Mac :: How To Create Library That Is Genre Specific

Sep 5, 2014

I have accumulated a large amount of Christmas music in my iTunes library and am running out of space on my hard drive.  I would like to create a library on an external hard drive that contains only my Christmas music and delete it from my computer.  I have successfully created a library that i named "iTunes - Christmas".  On this  HD there were 64 albums that had nothing to do with Christmas music. 

My question is, how do I get my 758 pieceses Christmas music from my MacBook Pro to my iTunes Library on my external HD, freeing up space on my computer?

ITunes For Mac :: Automatically Changing Genre Metadata?

Jun 23, 2014

MacBook Pro 15-inch, Mid 2012
Processor: 2.6 GHz Intel Core i7
Memory: 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M 1024 MB
Software: OS X 10.9.3 (13D65) 
iTunes 11-2-2 (3)

Why is iTunes automatically changing my genre metadata? For the past couple months I’ve noticed that iTunes has been changing genre information in my music library.  This is a problem because I’ve spent the past decade tweaking the metadata in my iTunes Library to be exactly the way that I want it (particularly with genre and grouping information).   

I have a very large iTunes library and I’ve changed genre and grouping info for organizational reasons.  When iTunes changes the genre of my music, it’s effecting my smart playlists and causing a domino effect of mis-organization.  Tracks and albums are popping up in multiple genres, and things are getting disorganized very quickly. 

I suspect that iTunes is changing the genre info of my purchased music back to how it appears in the iTunes store and that this is going to be a new ongoing Apple issue that is quietly ignored. 

Other notes/observations:

-I am NOT using iTunes Match
-Genius is turned OFF
-Tracks being automatically edited is music that has been purchased from the iTunes Store
-Not all tracks purchased from the iTunes Store is being automatically edited
-If I Command-Info a track that has been edited by iTunes, the metadata changes back to what I had changed it to.  But ONLY when I Command-Info or play the track.  Otherwise the track stays lost in it’s reversed genre and the track disappears from smart playlists that it’s included in.

Applications :: Creating New Movie Genre Thumbnails In ITunes 8

Sep 21, 2008

I saw a couple of other threads talking about this and thought we should have a thread where you can show off and share your own custom made Genre thumbnails. In case your not sure how to do it this is a good guide: [URL]. Basically you need to create a jpeg, put it in the right folder (iTunes>Contents>Resources) with the correct name and then adjust a tiny bit of information in the genre plist.

Its very simple and people who have no experience with this kind of stuff will be able to do it easily. Also if (like me) you are annoyed at the fact that some genres are missing you can add your own in the exact same way as in he link posted. Note in mine that Action & Adventure are now two separate genres and i've added Gangster, Kung Fu, Comic & Anime. Mine are all supposed to be the best films of that genre (ok maybe not Transformers ). Pic link now added, download!

Applications :: Loading MP3s From CD Via ITunes?

Mar 9, 2009

I don't have an iPod, but am considering getting one because I have exceeded the 20GB capacity of my current MP3 player. Although I do multitrack recording on my Mac Pro, I know very little about the iPod, and have following questions:

1. How would I make (if it's possible) MP3's from my CD's so that I can then load the MP3's on to the iPod. Is it possible to put a CD in my Mac, and make the MP3's via iTunes, or does one have to buy (and download) the MP3's from the iTunes store?

2. Is it possible to download MP3's from my PC (yes, I have both) on to the iPod, and if so, can I use the iPod with both my PC and my Mac?

3. I seem to recall reading that if one wants to delete an MP3 from either iTunes or an iPod, one has to connect and synchronize the iPod with the Mac that has the MP3 on it (in iTunes) and then delete the MP3, i.e., you can't delete the file from the iPod without deleting it from same computer from which it was downloaded through iTunes. Is this correct?

Software :: ITunes 7.6.2 Distorted With Mp3s?

Jul 4, 2008

If I play the file via preview, or QT, they will play fine. Crossfade, soundcheck, sound enhancer are all off, the EQ is also off. I have also found that that bitrate displayed in the pre-import mp3 is 128... After import the bitrate is 172(VBR). If I convert them to aiff, the distortion is carried into the new file.

ITunes :: Copying Mp3s To SD Card?

Apr 29, 2012

I just purchased a new phone with a SD card (4GB) and copied some MP3 songs to it. The problem is that, after copying, the MP3s are in place but so are 4K files of the same name as the "real" MP3 files. I have to go into the phone and manually delete these small files.

ITunes :: MP3s Made On Mac Don't Play In Car?

Jun 13, 2012

I recently bought a new car (a UK Toyota Auris - might be relevent), which has a USB port built-in for playing music from a USB stick.

"Great", I thought. I'd recently just converted all of my CD albums on my business Mac Pro. "Happy days." However, when I tried to play any of this music, the car's player would either recognise the album, and song title, but not play the song, or, just not recognise the music at all! "No Track" was the most common response.

Sometimes an album would work! But mostly they didnt'! I took the USB stick, and the DVD backup of all my music, and put them both into my home Windows 7 PC.

I copied the relevent tracks from the backup onto the PC, tried them using iTunes (all worked OK), then copied them onto the USB stick (which I'd re-formatted as FAT32, the format specified by the car's player).

But still the music is not reconised. I tried ripping a couple of CD's again, this time on my home PC using iTunes. STILL nothing worked in the car. I even had the car's player tested, and this checked out OK! I then resorted to trying Media Player 12 to rip a few albums. And these worked! I tried a few more. Still working! 

Can anyone suggest to me why the iTunes ripped albums (either Mac or PC) refuse to be recognised by the car's player? And whether there might be a work-around, so that I could use the thousands of MP3s I've already made on my Mac without having to resort to re-ripping them all again on the PC?

Applications :: How To Burn AAC Files As MP3s In ITunes

Jan 15, 2010

I would like to burn AAC files as MP3 in iTunes. I tried checking the option MP3 CD in the burning dialog box but it didn't work, It said something like these files cannot be burned as mp3, these are songs from the iTunes store (aac files).

How can this be done in iTunes if your songs are AAC?

Do I need to convert them to MP3s first? If yes, will this convert my downloaded files (.aac files form iTunes store ) to mp3s as well?

Applications :: ITunes Not Responding When Importing Mp3s

May 27, 2010

I'm a new macbook pro i5 user (first mac). Got it last wednesday..I've gone by with figuring stuff out myself, and browsing for help articles etc. online

I have a Western Digital 500gb fw/usb external harddrive that I used with my pc laptop. It's formatted in NTFS, and filled up with my mp3's. I've tried to drag the whole folder over to itunes, it chokes up and shows the rainbow icon thing both on usb and on FW. Then I tried to choose like 10 folders and import, still chokes up but it did manage to import SOME of those folders. So you can see it'll be a big problem for me to import the whole thing if I have to live with this and do it manually.

Second thing is, the few GB's that it has imported, everytime I open itunes now, it tries to finish estimating pauses and whatever for those tracks, but keeps choking up and get unresponsive. So I have to hard-quit itunes, or quickly hit the X several times to make it stop figuring out the pauses etc.

Wondering what is up with this...brand ned MBP that otherwise runs well, newest itunes that otherwise runs well, no problem with the harddrive...You guys have a solution? Should I format the harddrive to another format, what?

ITunes :: Can't Access My Mp3s From My External Drive

Feb 28, 2012

I've read most of the articles in Support but can't find an answer. I read this too [url]...

I'm running itunes 10.5.3 on my imac. I transferred my itunes music folder to an external drive because it was taking up too much space on my internal drive. Then I went into itunes preferences and changed the location of the folder to the external drive. But I can't access tons of my mp3s now. When I click on a song in my library that it can't access, I get that explanation mark, and a statement asking me if I would like to locate the file. I locate it, and then I can listen to it.

And after I find that missing file for itunes, a window pops up and asks "Would you like itunes to use the location of "-----" to find other missing files in your library"? I select 'yes'. But then itunes can't find the missing files, even if they're in the same exact folder as the last one I found! It seems to me like this function is broken? And I have like 2,000 missing files! I even re-imported my itunes music folder back into my library. But that didn't work and now I have a ton of duplicates.

Info:iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.8)

ITunes :: Cannot Preview MP3s Directly From Finder

Jun 17, 2012

Since a few months, I just can see mp3 files as an icon with the itunes symbol in it. Before, there was previews from the album cover and every time you click on it, the music was played in preview mode directly from the finder.Just a few minutes ago, I updated the version of my itunes to the currently newest one. That didn't give me a solution indeed.
