Itunes won't save my library

I have an itunes library and so does my daughter. I just created a new library for myself because my original one got tired and left, not sure if it will be back. So when i go to choose my library from the drop down box, my newly created library isn't listed. Also, how do i get rid of all the old libraries listed in that drop down box?

    No I haven't. Just wondering why it won't recognize my new library. I open iTunes with the shift key held down, then the box comes up to choose a library, it is at that point where my new library is not found. If my daughter chooses her library, then I will have to download all my songs off my ipod again. As it is right now, when I open iTunes without holding the shift key down, it opens the previously opened library, which is my new library.

Its really tough when you have multiple IPods going on one computer. The best bet is to take a library and add every song into the computer available. Then create a seperate playlist for your daughters songs and one for yours. Then use the playlists to add to the Ipods in the future. That is really the concept to the library in the first place.

How to Turn on Genius
The iTunes Genius feature suggests and recommends new music, movies, and television shows based on your device's music library and playlists. The Genius feature can automatically create new playlists for the user to enjoy and will do so based on the different genres and styles of media already present in the library. Using Genius, you can discover new music that's interesting to you.

Instructions

2Click the "Store" menu link then click "Turn on Genius."
3Click the "Genius" entry in the iTunes sidebar to the left then click "Turn on Genius."
4Select a song in your iTunes music library and click the Genius icon located at the bottom of iTunes. The icon is represented by an atom.


f you are using iTunes for the first time, you will see Genius listed on the left side of the iTunes window above Playlists. Click Genius and then click Turn On Genius to start using Genius. You can also start Genius by choosing Turn On Genius from the Store menu in iTunes, or by selecting a song from your library and pressing the Genius button at the bottom of the iTunes window.
When starting Genius, you'll be asked to sign in with your Apple ID or create a new one and agree to the terms and conditions.* iTunes will then proceed to gather information about the contents of your library, send this information to Apple, and download Genius results. The time to complete this process will vary depending on the size of library information and the amount of traffic on the iTunes Store. At any time during this process you can use iTunes to play music or other content.
To turn off Genius, simply choose Store > Turn Off Genius in iTunes.

How to Dock & Synchronize multiple iPods / iPhones


<p>Many people have more than one iPod or iPhone. Some families have several members who all have their own separate iPod / iPhone. The iTunes software is configured to synchronize content with one player, but the software can be configured to synchronize multiple players on one computer. To synchronize multiple players, you can set iTunes to a different library for each user to create. This will allow each user their own music and video libraries, which he then syncs with your players to adjust. Or you can set iTunes to share it with the same content for each user. <br /> <p><br /> <p>Configure multiple libraries on the same computer <br /> <p>1. Hold down the "Shift" key on your keyboard when you open iTunes on your Start menu. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Select "Create Library" dialog box that appears. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Name the new library or an alternative that opens (for example, the library iPod Jake). <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Select "Edit" in the iTunes interface, and select "Preferences". <br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Click the "Advanced" tab and check "Copy files to iTunes Music folder when adding to library." Press "OK". <br /> <p><br /> <p>6. Add specific files to iTunes library. Click the "File" menu and select 'Add File to Library ". After you have added your particular iTunes library, connect your iPod / iPhone to your computer with the USB cable and download files manually, or auto-sync. <br /> <p><br /> <p>Share iTunes library content with multiple users <br /> <p>1. Quit iTunes, find the iTunes library folder on your computer. Click the Start menu and select "Computer." Double click on the "C" drive. Select "Users". Click your username. If no username is set, click on "owner." Select "My Music". Double click on the "iTunes" folder. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Drag the folder to a public place. For example, you can drag the folder from the current location and put it in the Public Music folder. To find this folder, click again on "Users" and select "audience." The Music folder in Public. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Open iTunes and select "Preferences" from the Edit menu. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Select "Advanced". <br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Click "Change."

Downloading music from Itunes


If you really like your music, buy the CD. iTunes is horrible, copy protection etc. It's much better to have an original CD just in case you lose all you iTunes library in an 'unfortunate' power surge.

Don't know how to download from computer library to ipod


Connect your iPod to your computer with the USB cable. Start up iTunes (if you don't have it you can download it for free from http://www.itunes.com.

Once you start up iTunes click on File -- Add to Library

Then select the music you want in your iTunes Library. Once it's loaded you'll see your iPod listed in the left pane and you will be able to drag and drop any song you want onto the iPod.

Or you can create a playlist in your iTunes library and drag the entire playlist to the iPod.

Click on your iPod in the left pane and you will see a page that will allow you to manually update music or let iTunes sync automatically. If you choose the automatic function and you have more music than will fit on your iPod then iTunes will pick random songs to fill it.

I am computer illiterate so this may be a long one. I have a Sansa Fuze MP3 Player 8gb Silver. Also I already have a Itunes account and library can I drop library into the Mp3 player or is their a website...


It is my understanding that downloaded iTunes music only works with iPod products. However, you can create your iTunes music into MP3 format in your iTunes library. Your MP3 player should come with the software needed or tell you which application to use (ex. Windows Media Player). After you've created an MP3 version you can import/export into the proper media application then sync to your MP3 player.

Info I found on the web about your MP3 player:

Compatible Formats

The player supports MPEG4 video files and audio files saved in MP3, secure and unsecured WMA, WAV, Audible, and Overdrive file formats.

Simply connect the player to a PC, and start dragging files from your Windows Media Player 10 or 11 applications.

How to download itunes to thumps


create a playlist in itunes then put the songs you want to add to your Oakleys in that playlist.  Then, burn that playlist to a cd.  after you burn it eject it then re-insert it and transfer the songs from the cd to your itunes...i typically just add them as a new playlist called for my Oakley.  once you do that you can drag those songs to your oakleys...all you are doing is changing the format from m4p which are basically songs you purchase via itunes that are protected for apple products; ipod, etc., to m4a format...you don't have to go thru all that if you didn't purchase the songs via itunes...hope this helps..
