You can move your iTunes library.. Apple have explicit instructions to do it. If the library is moved to the TC and accessed over wireless, the efficiency of the whole system will drop dramatically..
A file you download goes.. Modem---TC--Laptop--Back to TC--Store on disk. Double looping the wireless slows it dramatically..
As far as using TC for your iTunes.. you CAN.. but SHOULD YOU?
Store files on the TC.
https://discussions.apple.com/message/24380694#24380694
This is asked several times a day.. obviously people are struggling with their latest SSD being too small.
The TC is not suitable for network file server.. but many people having no choice press it into service as such.
It cannot be partitioned. It was and is and ever shall be a backup device for Time Machine.
Major issues.
1. No backup.. no way Time Machine can backup a network drive. No place to backup to.. So all your files will be at risk. And you will need to buy a third party like CCC to do backup.
2. The TC cannot be partitioned and mixing TM backups and data is not great.
3. The drive is slow to spin up and quick to spin down.. there is no controls.
4. iPhoto in particular can easily corrupt its entire library with wireless networking causing a disconnection to one photo. Even if you do this;;; do not move your photo library... you have been warned!!
5. iTunes will constantly lose connection to the library. The disk is too slow to respond.. itunes on the computer will constantly spit out errors. Even in the midst of streaming the TC can spin down the disk due to caching.
6. Do not use any live files on the TC no matter what else you do.. if you edit files in whatever program the file must be on the local hard disk.
7. The only suitable location for most libraries is a computer. You can plug in an external hard disk.

    Go to Settings, Store, Apple ID, Sign out and then sign back in again and have another go.
    Also, try a Reset [Hold the Home and Sleep/Wake buttons down together for 10 seconds or so (until the Apple logo appears) and then release. The screen will go blank and then power ON again in the normal way.] It is app and data safe!

    We are fellow users here on these user-to-user forums, you're not talking to iTunes Support nor Apple.
    Do you have a credit card, or a different debit card that you could try (some are apparently still accepted in India) ?

  • HT204266 I can't get any updates or download new apps because I "cannot connect to the iTunes Store" yet I am able to do other Internet related things. Please help!

    I can't get any updates or download any new apps from iTunes because I "cannot connect to the iTunes Store" or sometimes it says server. I have no trouble getting my email or surfing the Internet, so it is a problem specific to accessing iTunes. Incredibly frustrated! Please help!

    Saw this on another post.
    Applecare Senior Advisor Txx Bxxx (I have his contact info in an email he just sent) just confirmed with me that the problem people are having with the App Store not loading is an apple issue with there servers, ITS NOT YOUR IPAD so don't go restoring it!   It's not happening to everyone however but they are looking into it, its really hit or miss.
    In the meantime ...........

    Try this first - Reset the iPad by holding down on the sleep and home buttons at the same time for about 10-15 seconds until the Apple Logo appears - ignore the red slider - let go of the buttons.
    This works for some users. Not sure why.
    Go to Settings>General>Date and Time> Set Automatically>Off. Set the date ahead by about a year.Then see if you can connect to the store.

  • Help - Cannot play music purchased from iTunes store

    HI,
    Hoping someone can help me. I cannot play any music I have purchased from the iTunes store on my Macbook Pro or iMac at home however I can play the tracks on my iMac at work. This occurred after I reinstalled Leopard on my main iMac at home. Here are the steps I have taken so far to try and resolve:
    1 - Deauthorized all computers
    2 - Reauthorized all computers
    I recently copied the music library from my home iMac to the work iMac and laptop they are all the same files now, not different versions. Essentially I'm playing the same file on each machine and all machines are authorized.
    If I select a purchased song at home or on my MacBook Pro, a window opens saying I am not authorized, blah blah blah. I input my details which I know are correct. The message tells me the authorization was successful but if I click on the song, the window opens again telling me I'm not authorized - ARRRGHHH!!
    BUT the weird thing is, the files all play on my work iMac. This is the only device that hasn't changed recently - the home Mac is a new OS restore and the MacBook Pro is about 2 months old, but if I've authorized them I don't understand why they won't play.
    Trying to contact iTunes support it impossible so I thought I'd see if anyone else has suffered a similar experience?

    I have the SAME problem and it's driving me INSANE!! I contacted an iTunes person and she's trying to help me but it didn't really help much... The stupid authorization prompt won't stopp popping up and I'm about to throw my computer out the window... It will sync and everything, but before it's done it will say some of my songs weren't copied to my iPhone because I'm not authorized, even though I AM. It's highly depressing... I really want to fix this problem. I thought it was just my computer because if just recovered from a major virus that we fixed, but what you explained is Identical to my problem. If you find a solution, please tell me! Thank you very much.

  • HT201272 how do i access the cloud i have downloaded some tracks on some albums but they dont play so i deleted them  i went to download them again but they are album only tracks so itunes store wont let me how can i get my tracks back? please help

    how do i get tracks back that i deleted that are album only tracks, i downloaded it and it would not play now i cant re download it please help

    About a minute and a half into some tracks it skips to the next. Not on all the tracks but on most of them.
    Try again, just redownloading the tracks which are skipping. (The servers for the Store seem to have been a bit extra-cranky with this over the past day or so in particular ... some folks have had to try redownloading again a couple of times.)

  • PLEASE HELP ME....DOWNLOAD MOVIE VIDEOS FROM ITUNES STORE

    Hi, I am trying to buy and download movie's from the itunes music store. Is this possible or can you only purchase music? How do I do it? I went through the full tutorial for itunes and it only talks about music and podcasts...Can someone help me...thanks

And then you can convert the movies to the ipod format and then sync the video files to itunes and sync them to your ipod. I dont think that i ned to name places where you can purchase movies right?????? That said then you will need to convert the movies.
    First you will need to tellus what operating system your using before we offer solutions for you.

  • HT1373 I have a new Ipad with retina display but two issues with itunes 1) I can not syncronize films&music with the library on my mac and 2) When I download music or films from itunes to my ipad from itunes store the download never finishes. Any help??

    I have a two problems with my new Ipad 2 operating system iOS 6.1.3
    1) I can not syncronize with my itunes purchaces that I have on my mac book pro (operating system mountain lion)
    2) When i purchase items from itunes store the downloads never finishes
    I have tried starting and re-starting. Resetting the Ipad to original settings and non of this have worked. Any idea to what I should do?
    Thanks a lot, Josephine

    That's one of the weird things.. it recognizes it maybe 10% of the time. And usually, only after I do the two-button reset. Problem is.. since it won't charge above 2%, anytime I try to do a restore or anything like that using iTunes, my device shuts off and I lose whatever progress I'd made.
    So, an update... after reading through a bunch of similar complaints (there are literally 1000's of them so there's NO WAY this isn't somehow ios7 related, thanks a lot APPLE ) I decided to try a restore in recovery mode. After 3 hours and several disconnections... I ended up having to just set it up as a new iPad, as the restore did nothing. Weirdly though... as I was doing the restore in recovery mode.. I noticed I'd gotten up to a 10% charge.. higher than it's been since September, so after setting it up as a new device, I turned it off and plugged it in using the wall charger. 2 hours later and I was up to 38%. Still not great, as my iPad, before ios7 could've fully charged twice in the amount of time it took for me to now get 28% more of a charge. And that's with a fully cleaned out device.. so that really ***** and I'm now more confused than ever.
    But I'm gonna leave it overnight charging and see what I come up with tomorrow. Sadly, when I paid $600 for it in February, I never expected to have to play "wait and see" with it...

  • Help! I can't transfer music videos from my mac to my iPad.

    Help! I cannot transfer music videos from my mac to my iPad. I simply want to transfer individual music videos from my Mac, but my iPad will not allow it. As soon as I check the box that says 'include music videos' my ipad says that I do not have enough space, which would be true if I wished to transfer all my videos. However, I only wish to transfer a few, something that I have done many times before. I then unchecked the 'include music videos' box, and of course, I could not transfer a single video, despite having plenty of free space. Please help!

    Wendy-
    All of my digital cameras seem to work OK with the iPad Camera Connection Kit, but I've read several similar reports here.  One thing to consider is whether your camera's battery is fully charged.  I doubt it matters, but might explain if it works sometimes and not others.
    I suggest you use a camera card-to-USB adapter to do the transfers.  I've tried several that worked.  The ones that drew too much current were the "universal" types that have several different card slots.  A camera store should carry an adapter, and may let you try it.  The ones I tried that draw too much current, were bad even without a card connected.

  • Hi, I just started a new movie and the program is running very slow. Is there a way to clean up my iMovie program so that it goes faster? Please help.

    Hi, I just started a new movie and the program is running very slow. Is there a way to clean up my iMovie program so that it goes faster? Please help.

    There is nothing you can do with iMovie program itself.  Slow response in usually due to a shortage of system resources (CPU, RAM and disk space).
    How much free disk space do you have on your boot drive and what is the capacity of the drive?
    You can check memory utilization while running iMovie using Activity Monitor (in Applications/Utilities).  What does the Memory tab show for Swap used?
    Are you running many other processor-intensive applications a the same time?
    If you have a lot of events and projects, it will help a bit to hide the ones you are not using by moving them from your iMovie Projects and iMovie Events folders into an enclosing folder so iMovie doesn't load them.

  • How do I transfer my checked songs from one computer to another - tried exporting library playlist etc but no luck! Please help! I have 26,000 songs - 17,000 are selected and I can't run down the list on my new computer and re-check 17,000 songs! Thanks!

    Make a smart playlist of your whole library but only checked songs - #4 on  http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1801
    Highlight all files in that playlist, then drag to the other drive.  This isn't preserving any playlists or whatever, just copying files from one drive to another.
    You might want to delete the smart playlist this once you are done because it will probably gobble up resources with that many files.
