Get iTunes to remember position in Playlist

Hi, does anyone know how to get iTunes to remember where it was in a Playlist when you shut down your computer so that it starts up at the same place again instead of at the top of the Playlist? It seems capable of remembering which Playlist you were using and also how the Playlist was sorted, so why can't it remember where it was playing?
This is really annoying...
*Apple guys/galls* - if you read this and the above is not possible then please add this feature to the Preferences in your next iTunes update - I'm sure you will please a lot of folks if you do.

I don't think you can do this in iTunes.
You can feedback your suggestion to Apple using this form:

  • I am going to restore my Macbook Pro to it's factory condition. In iTunes I have renamed a lot of my songs. Last time I cleaned off my mac and restored my music I had to rename all those songs again. How do I get itunes to remember all of those names?

    I am going to restore my Macbook Pro to it's factory condition. I do this every once in a while because it seems to improve performance. I backup everything to an external drive and then I restore only what I want from my backup drive. In iTunes I have renamed a lot of my songs. Last time I cleaned off my mac and restored/reloaded my music I had to rename all those songs again. It took me about 2 weeks to reorganize my music. How do I get iTunes to remember all of those names and keep everything exactly the same when I restore/reload the music into iTunes?

    It may seem like it does but it really doesn't.
    Just delete stuff you don't want.

    Use Time Machine, backup everything, do the reinstall (I recommend you don't do it) then restore your user folder with Time Machine.

  • How do I get iTunes to remember my password?

    Every time I start iTunes it asks me for my password.  This began after I changed my mac.com password.  Is there a way to get iTunes to remember my password so I don't have to re-enter every time I get into iTunes?

  • How do I get iTunes to remember to store music on ext. HD?

    I've followed the instructions (http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=301748) on how to store your Music Folder on an external hard drive (my ibook is overflowing with music and is otherwise fine - memory wise - with the music on the external hd). However now that I've done this and add more music it prompts me each time to locate where to store the music. How do I get it to remember where to store the music? any help is appreciated!
    Also, I'm reluctant to update to 7 until I solve the problem.

  • IPhone does not remember song or track or position in playlist or audio book

    I am hoping Apple will fix a problem with Ios7.0.x where iPhone does not remember song or track or position in playlist or audio book.  It worked fine with ios6.x

    Hello SashMir,
    After reviewing your post, I have located an article that can help in this situation. It contains steps to complete a restore on your device. You may want to consider a restore then setting up as "new," to alleviate the issues you've described:

  • How do I get iTunes 11 to work as the old iTunes did in this respect: after playing a song in one playlist, I click on another playlist, highlight a song, press play, and get the result of that song playing & that playlist continuing?

       How do I get iTunes 11 to work as the old iTunes did in this respect: after playing a song in one playlist, I click on another playlist, highlight a song, press play, and get the result of that song playing & that playlist continuing?  As it goes now, one clicks on the song in the new playlist where the arrow is and then chooses 'Play Song Next.'  So, it plays next, but then the song after that is back in the old playlist.  I want to use iTunes smoothly without the extra clicks I've had to do in order to get the playlist to continue.  This is music for background while I play the violin at restaurants, and extra clicks and hassle is quite unappreciated, especailly since it worked fine in the previous iTunes.
       Thanks.

    At the top of the playlist where it shows the playlist title and the number of songs, there are two icons. Click the "play" triangle to add the entire playlist to "Up Next", or the "shuffle" symbol to do the same thing but in random order. But the currently playing track will stop playing, and all the songs in "Up Next" will be removed (replaced by the ones from this playlist).
    If you hold down the "option" key while clicking those icons, the currently playing song will continue playing, and the new playlist will be added to "Up Next" (above the songs that were already there).

  • How do I get iTunes Match to update playlists I change content on with my PC?

    Help! I cannot get iTunes to update one of my playlists (I use iTunes Match). I tried turning Match off to manually sync, but the option to sync did not become available. And after one of the syncs, even with Match back on, now I have lost ALL of my playlists on my iPhone and most of the songs in my library. It looks like all that has synced are purchases I made through the iTunes store. I am teaching Zumba in 1 hour and I need my playlist and songs!

    Thanks, Michael. I'm not sure what network you were referring to. I had my iPhone connected via USB directly to my PC. I am on Cable for internet access and have Verizon as my cellular carrier. I don't know where I would enable "use cellular network"?
    ITM has updated my playlists in the past, usually within minutes of changing them. But this time, hours went by and no update. I finally manged, by rebooting iTunes after turning off ITM in both iTunes and on my phone, to get the option to sync manually to come up. So for now, I have ITM turned off, but I don't know what will happen if I turn it back on. I would like to have the listing of all my songs on my phone again for downloading as desired from my Library. But I need my playlists for teaching, so I can't afford to have them vaporize again!
    Not sure I feel ITM was worth paying for with this aggravation.

  • How can I get itunes on my i pad to play single songs in a playlist without stopping it manually?

    How can I get itunes on my i pad to play single songs in a playlist without stopping it manually?

    To turn on the check marks on, say, 150 consecutive songs in a list, do the following:
    Click on the first song in the list.
    Scroll to the last (150th) song in the list.
    Hold the shift key down while clicking the last song in the list.
    All 150 songs will then be highlighted.  Click the check box in one of the 150 songs and all songs will exhibit the same behavior.

    Trying to download photos from IPHONE, IPAD to IPHOTO in IMAC after installing new hard drive.
    How did you import the photos to iPad and iPhone?
    If the photos have been synced to the iPhone and iPad using iTunes, you cannot sync them back.
    See this document:  http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4236
    You can't reimport pictures synced from your computer to your device back to your computer. You can only import pictures in the Camera Roll or Saved Photos from your device to your computer. If you need to retrieve synced photos from your device:
    If your photos are not in the Camera Roll on your devices, save them to the Camera Roll, share them to the Photo Stream, mail the photos, or, if you have iPhoto on the devices, use iTunes Photo Sharing.

    Save photos to your computer using iTunes
    Connect your iOS device to your computer.
    Tap a photo, album, event, web journal, or slideshow and tap Share> iTunes.
    Tap Selected, or change the photos you want to save (if you are saving a slideshow skip to step 4):
    Select different photos: Tap Choose Photos, tap one or more photos, and tap Next.
    Select a range of photos: Tap Choose Photos, tap Range, tap the first and last photos in the range, and tap Next.
    Select all the photos in an album or event: Tap All.
    In iTunes, click the button for your device and click Apps at the top of the window.
    Below File Sharing, select iPhoto (in Apps).
    Select the Shared Photos folder under iPhoto Documents.
    Click Save To and select the location on your computer where you want to save the items.
    To view your photos, go to the Finder and look in the location you selected above.

  • How do I get iTunes to recognize my Library, my songs, and my playlists?

    I moved my iTunes folder to an external hard drive (or had iTunes move it, I forget exactly how it was done, with a friends help), then erased the iTunes folder on my internal drive. Everything worked fine until I forgot, and started iTunes without having turned on the external drive. I can still tell iTunes to look for the folder on the external drive (it seems to see it according to what I do in preferences), but It still will not show my songs or playlists. Anyone able to help?

    I was able to get iTunes to recognize the library and the individual tracks, by copying the iTunes folder from the external drive back to the internal drive. Preferences didn't seem to do it for me. I still wonder how to get the library to work from my external drive, though. I'd like help with that!

  • Can't get iTunes to Autofill from a Smart Playlist

    I think the subject line says it all: I can get iTunes to Autofill my 1GB shuffle from a manually created playlist, from the main Library, or from my Purchased Music but if I use a Smart Playlist as the source of the Autofill I get nothing but a blank stare--nothing changes--it doesn't even flinch. What am I missing?
    I have restored the shuffle using the 1.1.2 firmware update and it still doesn't work. It has been this way with every version of iTunes I've used since I got the shuffle up until the current version, iTunes 5.0. I'm currently running Mac OS X 10.4.2 with 1.25GB of RAM on a PowerBook G4
    Any help would be appreciated.

    I have practically the same problem, but only with podcasts. From a smartlist having all my podcasts, autofill only puts two onto the shuffle. From a normal playlist, none. I can drag them all into the shuffle. I'm on an iBook with Panther, iTunes 6, September 2005 iPod updater.

  • How do i get itunes or any other program for ipod to play one song and then stop instead of contiuing playing. I need it to be in the same playlist and ready to play the next song when I press play?

    how do i get itunes or any other program for ipod to play one song and then stop instead of contiuing playing. I need it to be in the same playlist and ready to play the next song when I press play?

    Good luck.  I tried to do this to cue sound effects for a theater, and never found anything.  iTunes will definitely *not* do this, nor was I able to find any player that would play one song at a time in a single playlist. 
    In my case, I ended up using AutoHotkey to tie individual tracks to the keys on an external keypad. This was an excellent solution for my problem, but I don't think AHK runs on Macs.
    One workaround is to make a folder, and fill it with *shortcuts* to the songs you want (ie, the actual files).  You can change the names to start with numbers to get them in the right order.  Then if you double-click on one it will play just that song.  You'll still have to double-click on each song.
    Might be a good time to learn AppleScript   It would  also be pretty easy to write a Java app to do this.

  • I cannot get iTunes 10.5.1 (windows) to burn a playlist to CD. It cancels immediately

    I cannot get iTunes 10.5.1 (windows) to burn a playlist to CD. It cancels immediately with an Unknown Error 4251 message.
    I am running iTunes on both 32 and 64 bit versions of  Windows 7 and get same result on both machines.
    It used to burn perfectly using previous versions of iTunes.
    Any suggestions?
    Thanks

    The 4251 isn't all that common (relative to other reported import/burning messages). So to be getting it suddenly on two different PCs suggests a conflict with something you've got running on both machines.
    Could you post diagnostics for both PCs, please? (Fingers crossed there might be some commonalities in the two sets of results that might lead us to the cause of this.)
    (No need to put both sets of diagnostics in one reply. Posting each set in a different reply will quite probably be much easier for you.)
    In iTunes, go "Help > Run Diagnostics". Uncheck the boxes other than DVD/CD tests, as per the following screenshot:
    ... and click "Next".
    When you get through to the final screen:
    ... click the "Copy to Clipboard" button and paste the diagnostics into a reply here.

  • TS2776 I can't drag songs from my iTunes Library to create a Playlist: I get a 'cancelled circle' icon over the song title as I try to drag it.

    When I try to drag songs from my iTunes Library to create a playlist, nothing happens. The title appears to move but it has a 'cancelled circle' icon superimposed on it and nothing happens to the Playlist. It almost looks as if the Playlist is 'greyed out'??

    I have had this as well, since updating itunes and it is a normal playlist. I have been able to add 2 but all the others I have tried come up with the cancelled circle and it is very frustrating as I used to be able to create playlists and drag whatever I wanted into them!
