Try breaking the ITL file & make iTunes rebuild it First, move the existing iTunes Library.itl to the desktop, just in case. Don't touch the .xml, just the .itl file. It can be found in ~/Music/iTunes/ Then… Delete the existing ITL if you left a copy in the iTunes folder. Open Terminal & enter this touch ~/Music/iTunes/iTunes\ Library.itl That ...

Mac or PC? It makes a difference. Recently on the PC my wife was having a similar problem. The phone will sync everything in the pictures folder. So I created a sub folder called iPhone and set the sync in iTunes to only sync with that folder and not the whole pictures folder. Now she just has to move the pics she wants on the phone to that folder. On the ...

If you plan on converting your entire library, you can select all tracks and hit file then create new version then create mp3 version. Once it is done you can sort by date created then select and delete all the tracks older than the new mp3 tracks. Note that you must have date created selected from view options.

As someone's said, the square button that says 'automatically fill space with songs' has to be ticked. I spent two hours trying to work out what was going wrong before finding this answer on here. The labelling of the button is misleading - iTunes only puts the songs you have ticked on your device, it doesn't randomly fill the whole thing.

Cmd+K does not work (you can't get to any settings menu), but Cmd+arrows does work with Yosemite. But the next fastest speed seems about 2x, which is hard to listen to.

What I would do is create an Apple ID for her without a credit card, along with creating an Apple ID for yourself (hooked to a credit card). Without a credit card, the only way to purchase something would be for her to: Have a gift card (you still couldn't control that spending) If she wants to buy something, she needs to come to you directly. You can go ...

I'm not sure why this is happening, but you can fix it by clicking on a track, going to File > Get Info (or ⌘ Cmd-I) and changing the track numbers back to the correct information. To get the correct track number, you can try googling the album. Somewhere will surely have the titles and track numbers.

If you're using a Mac, it may be saved in Keychain. Per Apple's support article: Open iTunes Preferences and select the Devices tab. Note the time of the device’s backup. Right-click the desired backup and choose "Show in Finder". Finder should now be open, showing the backup selected. Click the Edit menu and choose Copy. Open Keychain Access from ...

If you have a password encrypted backup you can't restore it without the password. If you could it would be no use of encrypting the backup.

A simple (but rudimentary) workaround that I use is to set the remix artist as the artist and set the original artist as the composer. I also parenthetically note the original artist in the track title for easy visualization. So Get Info window in iTunes looks like: song name: some track title (somebody 1) artist: somebody 2 composer: somebody 1 year... ...

I may have a solution with the already described way of re-importing transferred playlists and songs from the device to a Mac to put them onto another device. That includes a 3rd party software. When I get a new MacBook Pro at work, I use the software "iExplorer" to transfer all my contact data from my iPhone 5 back into the new Macbook Pro. That also does ...

In Itunes, create a Smart Playlist and name it purchases. (File Menu, New Playlist... Smart Playlist) In the search parameters of the smart playlist, Choose 'Purchased' and 'IS True'. That's the closes you'll get to sorting out your purchased items, but it doesn't allow you to sort by apple ID. Since iTunes doesn't allow you to search the 'Purchased ...

Go to: ~/Library/Containers/com.apple.BKAgentService/Data/Documents/iBooks/Books and make a backup copy the file Books.plist.

The transfer purchases part should be your least worry. This only backs up the purchased apps and music (occasionally people also have videos - I don't). All this extra information backed up in general takes up much less space on your PC than the app contents (think spotify) and camera roll photos which are backed up by default by iTunes to your C drive and ...

Try to put your device in DFU mode, then restore it via iTunes. This method should work with you.

You'll only lose something if you had a purchased medium (music, app, ...) on the device that was taken down from the iTunes Store in the meantime. For example, if a developer deletes their account, all their apps will disappear from the store and they won't be available through your Purchases section ever again, so if you don't have the .ipa, you can't ...

iTunes doesn't move to the next song by default, it moves to the next checked song. If all are unchecked, that's your issue. To recheck, in 'Songs' mode, select the top one, scroll to the bottom, shift/click the last one. Right click > check selection. [it might say 'tick' not check, I'm not sure if that's input language-dependant… US check == UK tick]

I understand the apprehension! In reality, though, you do not stand to lose anything. The only reason to transfer those purchases to your computer would be to save bandwidth and time by not re-downloading everything. You will still lose associated app data (e.g. login information, cache, etc.), but that would happen even if you did back up those apps to ...

I encountered this bug with... my iPad. The solution was to restart the iPad. Before that, these tries had failed : Relaunching iTunes. Restarting the Mac. Using another cable. Using another USB port.

The only way I know short of scrolling with the mouse is, after having pressed Command-L, you can press the following key sequence to get to All Artists: Tab, Tab, A, ↑, ↑ This assumes you have an artist's name starting with the letter A. If not, then substitute A with the first character of the artist's name that's directly under Compilations in the ...

Your Apple account may be compromised and some (not so smart) idiot logged into it and enabled Home Sharing, that causes his media library to appear on your side and most likely yours also appears on his side.

According to your screenshot, your sort order is with the numbers (position). I feel bad to ask, but what happens if you clicked on the header for "Name", "Artist" or "Album"? Does that sort them by name, artist and album respectively?

This is an application-specific question regarding the app "Share It!", which I do not know myself.

Okay, so this is weird... OSX suddenly started to be unable to copy and paste in certain applications (Sublime Text 2 could cut/copy, but wouldn't paste anything, couldn't cut from Chrome then paste in Sublime, etc).

posted as answer to add pic… This tells me it's shuffled right now; click it to turn off again. Re-ordering should be as simple as dragging to a new position, but whilst it's shuffled it will appear to ignore you, as it's unlikely to recalculate the shuffle at that point.

It appears to simply use Logical AND if you stack like that eg vs Using Any switches it to using Logical OR, so you could, with a bit of juggling get a combination of the two, AND & OR Edit - I found an example

From Apple's "How iTunes Store purchases are billed": How are Family Sharing purchases billed? When you initiate a new purchase, it will be billed directly to the family organizer's account, unless you have gift or store credit. First, your store credit will be used to pay the partial or total bill. The remainder will bill to the family organizer. ...

If you're willing to go the two Macs route you might want to look into using Rsync and either cron or the new lauchd. First I'd suggest doing a man rsync Rsync will allow computers to mirror the iTunes libraries-- even deleting old files. Cron is outdated, but, it allowed you to schedule a task at a time. Lauchd is a .plist file -- which can run a ...

Does your Mom have an MP3 CD capable player? How many tracks are you trying to burn to the CD? If you burn it as a standard audio CD, it will hold a little over an hour of music.

It will only erase the media items synched with the previous library. I just tested this on iOS 8—it absolutely does not affect anything else (settings, etc.) on the phone. It took two seconds and my iPhone 6 didn't even flash its screen.

If you've added custom artwork to an Artist, it will replace the individual Album Artwork that iTunes had previously set.
