Control Panel. Add/Remove programs, Select Itunes. Computer may want to restart.

Reinstall ITunes. Computer may restart.

Go into ITunes. Select add folder. Select your mp3 folder from your H drive. Library will rebuild and for that many songs it will take about 30 minutes to do. Make sure that when you purchase new songs that the folder is mapped to your external hard drive as well. I made that mistake of not doing it and it made a big mess.

Make sure your IPod is set for manual music management.

Click on one of your purchased songs from ITunes and login to your account using your ITunes user id and password. That will enable you to play your purchased musice from ITunes. If you have activated your ITunes account to play on more than 5 computers, you will have to get a hold of tech support to reset your computer count.

That should fix the problem.

    The other issue had to do with making the IPod a USB drive. That will slow it down because Windows likes to scan it for pictures and other files. Removing that feature will speed it up.



    This external drive that the Ituens is coming from isn't networked is it?

Before proceeding however, you'll need to make hidden files and folder visible in Windows. Follow steps 1-5 in iTunes for Windows in Windows Vista doesn't open after upgrading.

  • Remove iTunes Preference files
    Some of the files that iTunes uses to store settings and preferences may be unusable and cause issues. iTunes has two folders where preferences are saved. Move one of them to the desktop and test to see if the issue persists. If it does, move it back and remove the second folder. The location for the two preference folders are:
    • C:UsersusernameAppDataLocalApple ComputeriTunes

  8. Choose an artist, album, or single song to add the to the library
  9. Wait for iTunes to successfully add the songs to your library and perform the gapless playback scan.
  10. If successful, continue adding back more songs to your library.
  11. If there is an issue with one of your files, you will notice your issue reappear after you attempt to add it to the library. At this point you should repeat these steps being careful not to add the files that cause the issue to occur.
System-wide troubleshooting When troubleshooting system-wide issues with iTunes, there are a few different suggestion to try.
  • Check for viruses
    Windows viruses can interfere with a variety of computer functions including iTunes. Make sure that you have current anti-virus software installed with updated virus definitions and use it to scan your system.
  • Check for anti-virus and/or Internet security software
    Internet Security software itself can sometimes cause iTunes to quit unexpectedly. Try disabling the Internet Security software temporarily or exempting iTunes from any active scanning done by such software. If this resolves the issue, check with the maker of the software for an update to the software or its virus definitions. See the following article for more information: iTunes for Windows: Troubleshooting security software issues.

Im trying to reinstall my itunes library to my desktop


With the newer versions of iTunes, you would no longer need to copy your library to your desktop. iTunes has this capability to Share your collections. All you need to do is look for the SHARED Item on the left side. Somewhere below the Library. Click on Home Sharing. Then you would notice that you would need to login to your itunes account. Also make sure that all your computers would use the same account. Login. Then click on Create Home Sharing. You could turn on all your computers to have home sharing. After that you will notice that you already have a shared list of your items from other computers in your home network. Home Sharing is for personal use only and also you can choose which items you want to share.

Can not hook up my ipod


You need to download iTunes and create a library. Once you have iTunes installed...follow these steps.

  1. Add music to your hard drive by inserting CD's into your computer. When you put in a CD it may ask you to import the music into your library, or you may have to click the button on the lower right that says import music. iTunes generally finds the song titles and CD name by itself, but if the CD is obscure or a local band you may have to type it yourself.
  2. iTunes will automatically add the music you took from the CD to your library.
  3. You can also add music you may already have on your computer by going to File> Add file to library or File> Add folder to library. Once you have added all of the music you want to put on the shuffle, go to step 4.
  4. You can now plug in your iPod. iTunes should recognize the iPod pretty quickly. You will see it under a tab on the left called devices. Once it finds the iPod, you should be able to select music from your library and drag it directly to the Shuffle.
  5. You can click on the iPod's icon in the left side column and do several different things. But mainly I would just use it to see how much space you have left for your music.
It's as easy as that! Comment on this post if you need more help.
