Question about Dell Inspiron E1505 Notebook

2 Answers

ITunes Library this isn't for me...for my daughter in college. Her internet explorer corrupted according to dell. She was losing files or they were hidden. After hours, they got her files back and told her to switch to Mozilla for a browser. Trying ot make a long story short, two more calls to get her firewalls back up and access to her own computer. She was told to back up her files on external drive and reset computer to factory settings. That all seems fine. She transferred her iTunes library and she SAID the amount transferred was the same. She tried to load it back onto her computer, and it looked like it was there but she gets a message not found. How to transfer iTune back to her laptop OR is there any reasonable solution to upload everything on her iPod back into her library...sort of a disaster recovery type thing. Could really appreciate the help. It is an 80G iPod, and as you can imagine, we have a lot of time and money invested in that music library.

If the music was backup'ed on an external hard drive all she would have to do is Reimport the .mp3s (or whichever audio files she has) into iTunes after copying them from the external BACK to the new computer itself.

If that doesn't work, she can always pull the music back off her iPod with YamiPod: http://www.yamipod.com/main/modules/home/ . IMPORTANT: Just don't sync with iTunes when you connect the iPod to the computer as it will ERASE the iPod.

Good Luck,

How to re-create iTunes library


Follow these steps:

1. Quit iTunes.

2. Locate your iTunes folder.

For Microsoft Windows XP and 2000 the iTunes folder is stored in

System drive\Documents and Settings\username\My Documents\My Music\

For Microsoft Windows Vista the iTunes folder is stored in

System drive\Users\username\Music\

3. Open your iTunes folder.

4. Drag the iTunes Music Library.xml to the Desktop

5. Drag the following file from your iTunes folder to the Trash:

Microsoft Windows: 'iTunes Library.itl' (in versions of iTunes prior to 4.9 this was called 'iTunes 4 Music Library.itl')

6. Open iTunes.

7. From the File menu, choose Import.

Note: Do not add any music into iTunes at this point.

8. Navigate to the iTunes Music Library.xml file on the Desktop.

9. Click Open.

After re-creating your library, any devices that you sync with iTunes (Apple TV, iPod, etc) will see your iTunes library as a new library and will completely re-sync.

Itunes wont open


A corrupt iTunes library prevents the iTunes program from opening and prevents Apple device synchronization. According to Apple, the iTunes library must be rebuilt, which resets the library and removes the current content in the media manager. Back up your media prior to recreating the library, as the recreating process erases all content and your Apple device will synchronize with the blank, recreated library and erase the device's information.

Insert the DVD-RW disc into the computer's DVD-RW drive, and open iTunes. Click "File," "Library" and "Backup to Disc." Select the iTunes library and playlist backup and click "Next." Eject the disc after the backup completes, and close out of iTunes. Move "iTunes Music Library.xml" from your iTunes folder to the desktop. Right-click "iTunes Library" and click "Delete." Launch iTunes and click "File," "Library" and "Import Playlist." Locate and double-click the iTunes Music Library.xml file. Insert the burned disc into the DVD-RW drive and click "Restore." or
Fix iTunes if It Won't Open on Your Computer b> You've clicked and clicked and clicked some more, but iTunes just refuses to launch. A non responsive program is frustrating to any computer user, but especially if all you want to do is listen to some music or download a new album. If iTunes isn't opening, there are many possible causes for this error. None of these fixes will affect your current music collection. Though you may need to tweak or reinstall some software, your MP3s will stay right where they are.

Confirm that your Apple device is connected securely to your computer. If you are not trying to access iTunes via an Apple device, or if your device is connected correctly, continue to step two. Configure your firewall to allow iTunes to connect to the Internet. Many firewalls block software programs' ability to get online as a security precaution. This is because some spyware and malware is designed to transmit personal data from your computer. Making iTunes a trusted program within your firewall software is necessary for it to function properly. Create a new iTunes library file. An unstable or corrupted library file can cause iTunes to suddenly quit or not open at all. Recreating a library file is a lengthy process that depends heavily on the operating system you are using. See the iTunes Support page under. http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1451 Reinstall iTunes on your computer. If no other troubleshooting steps are successful, then the fastest way to solve the problem is to start from scratch. Hope this helps.

IESHIMS.DLL error opening file


This is a Internet Explorer Compatibility Shims, and a part of Windows Internet Explorer developed by Microsoft Corporation. It is basically a system and hidden file, usually located in the "Program Files" subfolder and its usual size is 196,096 bytes. The Ieshims.dll is a 32/64-bit Dynamic Linked Library of code components for a graphics User Interface style application. This process is safe and disabling it is dangerous since programs in your computer need it for working correctly. There is no known risks associated to this file unless it is modified by virus. It can be downloaded from the internet.

Common Causes of ieshims.dll Errors:
a. This file was removed when a program was uninstalled.
b. Overwriting of this file with an older version or with a version that is incompatible with other programs.
c. Incomplete or unsuccessful installation of a program.
d. Corruption of the file due to virus infection or hardware failures.

Caution: Installing / uninstalling software and modifying system components may leave your system registry fragmented with obsolete, corrupted or harmful files.

Download Mozilla Firefox onto a Flashdrive from a friends house, or the Library, etc. You could even download flashplayer onto this and bring it home and install.....

Itunes file twice the size as library


when you add music to your itunes library, it copies them to the itunes music folder for itunes to manage it or itunes has every song twice in its library, to check whether itunes has not copied your music twice, view your music in LIST VIEW in itunes and if you see some songs has been copied twice delete on of them.
You can also delete the songs on your music folder to save disk space or you can leave them if you use another music player other than itunes.
But I think you should delete the files in your music folder.

Itunes transfer of music


hi there,
you can use software to do this task which takes less time to get done :-
http://www.transfer-ipod-to-itunes.com/showproduct.aspx?t=a

or

Follow the steps outlined :-

1. You need to connect the iPod without iTunes doing the auto-sync.
  • Hold down the Shift and Ctrl keys while connecting the iPod to your computer.
  • Don't let go of Shift+Ctrl.
  • If iTunes doesn't open automatically open after connecting the iPod, open iTunes.
  • Don't let go of Shift+Ctrl.
  • Wait until the iPod comes up in the Source list under DEVICES (it may take a while, but don't let go of Shift+Ctrl)
iTunes may pop up asking you to choose an existing library or to create a new one. Click Create a new one so that it can just open.
Once it shows up, close iTunes.

2. Now find the songs on your iPod and copy them to a folder on your computer.

  • From the Desktop, go to My Computer and click once (or select/highlight) on the iPod, (usually drive E:, F: or G:)
  • Go to Tools > Folder Options.
  • Click View tab > scroll to Show Hidden Files and Folders and select it. Click OK.
  • Look in the iPod drive, and find a folder called iPod_Control and open it.
  • You'll see the Music folder. In it will be folders and files named F00, F01 and so on.
To see the original name of the song/file, just mouse over it.
  • If you need all the contents of the iPod on you computer, copy the whole Music folder.
  • If you only need some of the files, look through the Fxx folders until you find the files you want and copy.
  • To copy:
    • Click once on the folder or hold down the Ctrl button and click once on each of the folders you want.
    • Go to the Edit menu and select copy.
    • Minimize all windows, right click over a blank area of the desktop, select New > Folder (name it Songs).
    • Right click over the Songs folder and select Paste.
      • Depending on the number of songs, this may take a long time to complete.
All the hidden files that are on your iPod are playable on iTunes once you transfer them to your computer's iTunes.

3. Now have iTunes import that folder to your music library
  • Open iTunes (if needed) and go to File > Add Folder to Library.
  • Select the folder you want to import and click OK.

Error message when I try to play a cd,dvd or rip


Before we try blaming a faulty cd/dvd unit lets check out faulty Windows Media Player Software. Is Media Player up to date? Try installing iTunes set as default. That will force the cd/dvd association to iTunes. See if the player works or what the error is...If it works...Then re-open Media player make it the default again and see it what it does. or This is from the Microsoft site: Windows Media Player cannot find the file. This error message usually indicates the link from an item in Media Library to its associated digital media file is broken. Items in Media Library are links to digital media files that are stored on your computer, a network drive, a removable storage card, an Internet server, or another location. Links can be broken for one of the following reasons: * A link to a temporary file from the Internet cache (for example, a file from the Temporary Internet Files folder) was added to Media Library and that file was later deleted. * A link to a digital media file was added to Media Library and the file was later deleted. To repair a link Do one of the following: * If you deleted or moved the file, replace it to its original location. * If you moved the file, right-click the item in Media Library, click Error Details, and then enter the new location of the file. To delete a link Do one of the following: * Right-click the item in Media Library, click Error Details, and then select the Remove file from Media Library check box. * Right-click the item in Media Library, and then click Delete from Library. Good Luck, Tim
