Delete Duplicates Songs on iTunes, Repair Music Info on Mac


If your iTunes application on Mac have updated to Version 11+, you can use the method Apple supported to show all duplicate items in your iTunes library. From the menu at the top of your computer screen, choose View > Show Duplicate Items. And then manually delete unwanted ones. Or if you are a Windows user, Hold down the Control and B keys on your keyboard to open the iTunes menu bar. Choose View > Show Duplicate Items.


Matches are based on the song name and artist. If you have multiple versions of the same song (for example, live and studio versions, or versions from different albums), hold the Alt or Option key (Mac) or the Shift key (Windows) and choose View > Show Exact Duplicate Items. This will show only the duplicate songs that have the same name, artist, and album. The information in the other columns, such as Time, Release Date, or Genre, can also help you determine which item to keep and which to remove. For example, the Plays column shows which version of the song you've listened to more.

Switch off laptop, turn it on again songs no longer in itunes library. please help?


Your library lists songs detected by the laptop but not on your laptop. It might be detecting your home network or a music player.

1. Launch iTunes.
2. Click the iTunes drop down menu at the top of the screen.
3. Select "Preferences"
4. Select "Advanced". Its icon is a gear, at the far right of the window.
5. Select "Copy files to iTunes Media Folder..." in the upper middle of the window.
6. Select "Sharing" at the top of the window Its roughly in the middle.
7. Select "Look for Shared Libraries."

Syncing iPod with iTunes, infamous (-69) problem


just
This error occurs when iTunes tries to send files to your iPod, but a file (or files) is unusable (something is wrong with it).
To figure out which file (or files) is causing the error, update to the latest version of iTunes and then do this:
  1. Control-click (Mac) or right-click (Windows) on your iPod icon in the iTunes Source pane, then choose Sync Songs from the shortcut menu.
  2. Watchthe display at the top of the iTunes window while your iPod is beingupdated. The name of the problematic file should appear in the displayright before the error appears. Then remove the bad file from the listof songs to be synced to your iPod.
  3. Select the iPod in the iTunes Source pane.
  4. Click the Settings tab.
  5. Selectthe "Only sync checked items" checkbox (please note that this checkboxis only available for an iPod configured to update automatically).
  6. Selectthe appropriate item under Library in the sidebar and find the bad filein the list. (For example, if the file in question was a song you wouldselect Music in the iTunes Source pane. If it were a video you wouldselect Movies or TV Shows in the sidebar.)
  7. Deselect the checkbox next to the file name.
  8. Repeatsteps 1 and 2 to update your iPod. If you have multiple problematicfiles in your iTunes library, you may need to repeat the other steps toremove them too.
To prevent future issues, you should delete the unusable files from your iTunes library, then restore them from a backup or reimport them from a CD.
If you're not able to isolate to any single file or if another iPodworks with the same songs, then disconnect any other devices connectedto USB or FireWire and try again. If the issue continues, then then tryresetting your iPod. If the issue continues, then restore your iPod.

Your library needs to be rebuilt to version 8.0 before ITunes will work. Once the database is rebuilt, your songs will reappear in Itunes for use.

Give Itunes the library that your files are in using the folder options. Itunes will rebuild the library off of those settings.

Backup your purchased songs asap.
