Question about Apple iTunes

Open Question

ITunes occasionally dumps my entire library, playlists, apps, everything and when I open iTunes I get the bare-bones program. Also, the iTunes Library Extras & iTunes Library Genius files are in my Recycle bin! When I restore the 2 files, they simply get binned again when I open iTunes again. Help, this is doing my head in..... It has happened 3 times now in the last couple of months and I can't see a pattern to help me work out what's happening to make this wierdness happen. Cheers

SOURCE: Playlists & thousand songs dissappeared from itunes

if you synch it yes it will wipe it out - you can get software to back your ipod back to your computer so I would personally delete all the play lists and re do it. your music will be in my documents --> music --> itunes so you can re add it that way and re sort the playlists.

If its on mac os then it will be under your music folder ( macintosh hd --> users --> your username --> music --> iTunes

It may be that your itunes library file may have gotten corrupted so once you have gotten it sorted out close down itunes and go back into your music folder and itunes folder and make a backup copy of your itunes library files.

Assuming your not moving your music files around in side of the music or itunes folder it should be fine.

I will go for putting things right in the Itunes ..and after that sync again and this way you will no longer have the duplicates in ipod also ..
for to get rid of the duplicates use the software I just linked...they say it works great wit itunes..and this will clean your library of any duplicates...and after that when you will sync.you will have only the good stuff in it ..
You may even delete all things in ipod..just to be sure it do not mess with the sync..and reload the duplicates...by sync-ing the itunes with your ipod instead of the other way around ..
So ..first make a sync .to be sure you have all the files in itunes..even if you have them in double ..
after that use the software to get rid of the duplicates..
after that format the ipod ..and remove all files..
Make a sync again ..and have only one instance of the files ...
If you have a great deal of songs on it ..and it is a lost of time to sync it again ..try t see if the software works on the ipod also ...I am not sure but only about itunes..

Transfer playlist from Itunes to Ipod Nano


Open iTunes and plug in your iPod. On the left sidebar there should be your iPod name (If you can't find the sidebar, go to iTunes menu bar, under View, select Show Sidebar), go to your iTunes playlist and drag the songs you want to your iPod. For all of the songs, go to your iPod music library, even if you don't have songs, and on the bottom there should be a blue-ish bar. There might be a box saying "Autofill from iTunes library" click that ONLY if you want ALL songs from your iTunes to your iPod.
If you want to know how to put video or DVD movie onto iPod, I think this step by step guide would help you.

Are you an IPod greenhand or new user to iPod? Are you annoyed with how to transfer iPod playlist to iTunes? So, how do you get iPod playlist to iTunes? Factually speaking, it's not difficult to do it. All that we what we have to do is to make sure your iPod connect to your iTunes and that you follow the instructions below.
But, just like everything surrounding the App Store, there is always an "App for that". iPod to computer is one of those apps that provide you a fast way to transfer iPod playlist to iTunes.

The iTunes program servers as both a media player and a database for the content you've added to it. The program window lists your songs and videos so you can see what you have, but the actual files themselves are stored elsewhere. In the default location, your files are nestled inside subfolders within the iTunes program folder on your hard drive.
If you're like a lot of iPod listeners, one of your favorite things to do is make up new playlists. You might spend hours each week working on making up new lists for different occasions. You've probably got a list for doing homework or work, a list for working out, a list for driving in the car, and a list for a romantic date. Having all these playlists can be a lot of fun, and sometimes making them can be a little addicting, too.
This is why many people love the on-the-go playlist making application on their iPods. With this application, you can put any song on your iPod into an impromptu playlist. Maybe you want a brand new list to express your mood for today. Maybe you're just on a roll with discovering new music and are making a fantastic playlist for a friend. Either way, making these lists can be fun and interesting.
The problem, however, is that you can't save or label on-the-go playlists. If you leave them on your iPod, they'll just be named on-the-go and called by the order in which you made them. You won't be able to rearrange them or fine tune your playlist making skills like you can when you're actually making a list in iTunes.
If your iPod is broken and all you want to do is that transfer all the files to iTunes? How can you to transfer then? Maybe you are worried about these problems and think that it is hard to do it because the restrictions by apple. Here I want to say it is easy now as longs as to use a software to help us and then we can get what we want easily.
Here I want to choose Cucusoft iPod Transfer according to the long-term good test.
Before you run our program, please be sure you have installed iTunes on your computer, and you can manage your ipod device with no problem.
Step 1. First connect your iPod to your computer via USB cable. Then install and run iPod Transfer. After done, the playlist will be shown on the main interface as below. All the playlists and other files will be shown on Cucusoft transfer below.
Step 2. Copy the playlist and transfer into iTunes library from iPod.
Step 3. Click the "Export" button and start to copy ipod playlist to itunes library right now. Choose Export to iTunes and OK.
Now you have successfully copied ipod playlist to itunes!

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.

How to transfer playlist from itunes to ipod model a1236 4gb


As is known, iTunes helps to sync media files and apps. when users are about to sync music to their iPod, they'll find the option of syncing playlist. When the users check the playlist to sync, they will sync the whole playlist to their iPod.
  1. Connect your iPod to computer, and launch iTunes if it doesn't open automatically. As is shown, all the playlists on iTunes are on the left side.
  2. Then, click "iPod nano" on the top of iTunes. Some of you may prefer the old look of the iTunes. If so, go to the View menu and select Show Sidebar to show the left side of the window that displays all media libraries.
  3. Click Music, then choose "Sync Music", "Selected playlists, artists, albums, and genres" and target playlist > Click "Apply" below to transfer playlist from iTunes to iPod.

Wiped my entire music library.


You're ok as long as the music is still on your iPod.

There are a number of apps which will help you recover your music from your iPod to your PC.

The most advanced ones will allow you tu recover absolutely everything (playlists, playcounts, meta data, ratings, videos, etc.)

I personally prefer:

CopyTrans (http://www.copytrans.net) : $19.99
or
SharePod (http://www.getsharepod.com/) : Free
