I was having this same problem and I followed the advice from coliff (which I will paste below) "Go to iTunes > Preferences > Store and then untick the 'Always check for available downloads'. Tick the 'Shows iTunes in the Cloud purchases' too, if you purchased on your Apple TV." Except when I got to that point the 'Always check for available downloads' ...

I found a solution to the grey circles next to 60% of my songs that worked for me, based on some of the suggestions here. I planned to make all new playlists but started with one as a test. I made a playlist, copied and pasted the songs from the old one, and deleted the old one. I re-synced the phone - it worked. It worked for all of them just by ...

One reason the Add Artwork button can be grayed out when selecting a song in iTunes and then Get Info, is the file does not have write permissions set. Select the song in iTunes and then right-click it, then select Show in Finder. In Finder select the file and then right-click it, then select Get Info. Under the Sharing & Permissions: does it show ...

Just to make sure you have all the necessary settings turned on, make sure you have: The latest version of iOS Navigate to Settings > Music > iCloud Music Library and turn it on; Also, make sure you are connected to a WiFi network (the default behaviour of Music app is to only allow music downloads through WiFi). If you don't have a WiFI ...

For me, it was because I had a Pimmsleur language CD in the CD player. So... it kept seeing a CD and turning iTunes on, playing whatever my last playlist was (weird). This happened randomly, it seemed to me, but especially if I was scrolling or start/stopping a Youtube video with my touchpad. I like being able to leave a CD in, so, I went to my computer ...

Tried this with a number of tracks, no short version appears in iTunes. Create new version only allows creation of MP3 version. For the record I'm using Windows 10 and iTunes 12.3.25

Use either Audio Hijack, SoundFlower, or Loopback.

Your first sync will bring items from your iPad to your iTunes library. Once that is done via iBooks on your mac drop the PDF into that app. Then when you sync again that PDF will show up on your iPad. Or you can just email (iMessage, AirDrop) the PDF to your iPad and then open it and save it into iBooks. If the iPad already has media content then you ...

Unfortunately, the option mentioned in the other answers is no longer present on iTunes. Instead, the OSX solution is now similar to the Windows one: Open System Preferences Select Users & Groups Select your user profile if not selected already Go into the Login items tab Select and remove iTunes Helper from the list Log out and back in, or restart OSX ...

Yes. Follow this guide or any other after getting the song from ~/Music/iTunes/iTunes Music. Select and edit a song The first thing we'll need to do is choose a song in iTunes to use as a ringtone. Open up iTunes on your Mac or PC and click on the My Music tab. Choose a song that's on your hard drive then right click on it, choose Get Info, then ...

The answer is mixed. While the iTunes app store can be signed into with a separate Apple ID, there will be some data (naturally) stored on the second account you use. The device will not be added to their My Apple Devices, though it will become an Authorized Device in iTunes Store. As such, some level of data will be held in the Apple Servers to facilitate ...

You can't, it's up to the app developer to implement the feature.

For some reason iTunes photo sync (iOS Device -> Photos) is quite restricted regarding what you do with those photos after they are on the iOS device. Even Apple specifically says that you can't sync those photos from your iOS device to your computer. As a result, I suggest trying iExplorer to copy the photos from the iPad to your computer. If you had ...

I've had several people ask for help with Apple Music and this has helped them - hopefully it's what you're looking for. Stars are tracked in your music library - so if you are playing songs from the cloud - it's a bug if you can input stars for tracks that are not part of your actual library. One you add a song/album to your library - the stars should be ...

The answer depends on how your phone is configured for synchronization. Note: If you back up your content from the phone to the local new computer first, then though some data will be erased, it will then be copied right back on to your device. Entertainment files: In most all situations, your music, movies, podcasts, books, and TV shows will be lost as ...

I finally found a solution to this. If you sort by song you can see a check mark next to most songs but the greyed out ones won't be checked. Just make all songs checked and they work again. Hopefully this helps you and others with a similar problem.

I just removed it. And you must deactivate it from music, movies and TV for it to remove it

I have the same problem. It seems you need to redeem iTunes gift cards on the child's device NOT your computer or device. In other words whichever Apple ID you use to redeem the gift card is who can use it. You have to go into iTunes Store on the device you want to use the gift card and use the redeem function.

I believe the "Never Play This Song" applies to just the one station. Apple clarifies this in their page for Apple Music Radio - https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204944 "While listening to your custom station in Apple Music Radio, tap or click the star icon star icon to fine-tune your station. Tap or click the star again to tell us to Play More Like ...

It sounds like the sidebar preferences got reset when you upgraded to El Capitan. If that is all that is going on, it should be simple to fix. The sidebar is just a list of shortcuts to where the folders actually are, so we just need to put the shortcut back. First, make sure that Finder is the application that you are working in, either by clicking the ...

Music is a default folder under FAVORITES on the Sidebar of Finder and you should be able to select it and then see your iTunes Folder. If the Sidebar isn't shown, click Finder > View > Show Sidebar. If Music isn't in Finder's Sidebar then go to the menu bar Finder > Preferences... > Sidebar and click the checkbox by Music to have it appear in the Sidebar. ...

All the iTunes content is inside the directory: ~/Music/iTunes more precisely: /Users/<your_user_name>/Music/iTunes. You can use special application tool like DaisyDisk to locate some particular content inside your Mac computer.

The Sidebar is just a handy place to find stuff. If an item has been removed from the Sidebar, it is easily put back by dragging its icon from its source location on the drive. In your case, open the /Users/your_user_name folder from the HD and drag the Music icon into the Sidebar. This Support Document at Apple may help in greater detail.

You can try to download the file from your email to Mac(book). Then open iTunes (login with Apple ID if required). Then add downloaded file into iTunes library and sync with your iPhone. It worked for me. Hope this will help. 🤓

OMG I figured out what's happening, and I'm horrified. If the song in question is available in Apple Music, then that song will be automatically treated AS an Apple Music item and therefore will NOT be able to stream even after being added to the iCloud Music Library, on any device running an OS older than 8.4. So to be clear... music that I created myself ...

I think you should spell the artist name the same as what Apple's servers are using. In my case, I have a lots of songs by "Linkin Park" and still the artist image is the from cover of their album "Hybrid Theory". When I browse Apple Music their artist name is "LINKIN PARK" (all caps) so I renamed all my LP's songs, restarted the music app and connected to ...

I have found a workaround in that using another app to play the music you have from Apple Music / Music.app bypasses all streaming. Cesium Music Player by Mike Clay The interface is refined / simpler visually than Apple's new interface and it lets you control a bit more of the UI than Apple's app does. I find myself using it to only play songs that are ...

You don't say what version of iTunes you have, the 3gs won't upgrade past iOS 6.1.6 This surprising page still hosts a 6.1.6 security update on the Apple website. This even more surprising page has iTunes version 9.2.1 which was contemporary with your 3gs. It's possible that the newest iTunes don't have the needed package for your old phone. Apple, after ...

It's not possible... hoping Apple allows this in a future release.

This might be an Authorization issue since this is a new computer. Open iTunes> In the menu bar select, "Authorize This Computer"> Enter your Apple ID credentials (linked with the purchases you are attempting to download) and click "Authorize".

A day later it managed to fix itself. Looks like the problem may be caused by some cache that is cleared when reboot.

I think in "Waiting for item to Copy" process iTunes scans the items that are to be copy , counts items and calculates the estimated time of the copy. As many as files to be copied , the waiting time is increased.

Open the iTunes list of items, then click on the name column. This will sort tracks by alphabetical/ reverse alphabetical order.

I had this same problem. I discovered that at some time in the past I had created another AppleID. My iPhone was "logged" in using one ID, I was trying to sync iTunes using a different ID. Go to Settings> iTunes & App Store and note what your AppleID is. Now in iTunes check to see if you are logged in (upper right near the search box) under a different ...

I kind of fixed it. I signed out of iTunes, then my music appeared! It seems to remain in place when I signed back in, so maybe, all is good

Do you have other Apple IDs linked via Family Sharing? I would try deleting the offending app, and re-downloading under her ID.

The iTunes Library .xml file located at ~/Music/iTunes/iTunes Library.xml contains location information for your media files. I just checked and I can pull up locations (or last known locations) of all my tunes from there, even if the files themselves have been moved.

I ran into this myself, came across your question while seeking the answer, but have since figured it out. https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204926 The key is to enable iCloud Music Library under Edit > Preferences > General in iTunes. That then enables the "Add to iCloud Music Library" right click option over albums and individual files. Items you "add ...

There is no 'official' way to pull music from any iDevice back to a computer, but there are many unofficial apps that can do it. The basic idea is that you get the music off the iDevice & into iTunes, from where you can then keep it or re-sync it to your own device. I know of no way to do this directly from phone to phone, you must have a computer as ...

That is odd. The only thing I can think of is that perhaps the start/stop times of some individual songs have been changed. Try this Find a song that this happened to Get Info on it (right click on the song in iTunes and select Get Info) Click the "options" tab near the top of the Get Info window Check and see if the start and stop times have been changed. ...

You could delete the duplicate playlist from the iPod, but the actually music files shouldn't be duplicated anyway. Nevertheless, if you would like to delete all stored music (not including what's in the cloud), you can (on your iPod) navigate to Settings > General > Usage > Manage Storage (For Device Storage, not iCloud) > Music > Edit and tap delete next ...

This is currently impossible. You can share downloaded audio with many apps - Dropbox, Google Drive, or the one I use most often for learning music and the like, forScore. But you can't share it with iTunes. Although, songs purchased on your phone can easily (or automatically) added to the libraries of your other Apple devices via Settings - iTunes & App ...

I finally found the easy way to do this - on the top right corner you have a drop down list often set to 'Songs' or 'Playlist'. Just enter this menu and you can see the option 'Sort by'. Select 'Playlist order'. That should do it!
