I have my iTunes music folder stored on an external hard drive.  I recently purchases a new Mac.  After attaching the external hard drive, all songs imported without a problem except my playlists.  Any clue about where they are or how to revive them for use on my new Mac?
Thanks!

To retain your playlists, artwork, play counts, etc, you need to move the entire iTunes folder, not just the music files..
Correct.
After that just select the new folder location in iTunes> Advanced settings.
Incorrect.
Hold Option and launch iTunes.
Select Choose library and select the iTunes folder.
This will read the iTunes library.itl file in this folder and the library as it was previously will be opened.

    This can be a problem with the file places.sqlite that stores the bookmarks and the history.

  • I recently purchased a new mac computer and would like to sync the music off my iPhone to my new mac.However, my phone and my new mac have different apple Ids.The PC which my phone is synced and has the same apple ID but does not let me transfer the music

    Hi I recently purchased a new mac computer and would like to sync the music off my iPhone to my new mac.However, my phone and my new mac have different apple Ids.The PC which my phone is synced and has the same apple ID but does not let me transfer the music. Home sharing is not working. How do I successfully transfer and sync the music off my ipone 4 to my mac book pro if they have different Apple IDs? Thanks!

    What do you mean the PC won't let you transfer the music? Save your entire iTunes folder (this is assuming that you have all your music stored in your iTunes folder) to an external hard drive. Connect that hard drive to your Mac. Copy the iTunes folder to your computer. Hold down the option key while launching iTunes on your Mac. Select the library you just copied when it ask you to select which library you want to open.

  • I have an old Mac book pro which had hundreds of photos in iphoto. recently bought a new mac book air. now my iphoto library on the old mac book is gone!!!!

    I have an old Mac book pro which had hundreds of photos in iphoto. recently bought a new mac book air. now my iphoto library on the old mac book is gone!!!!

    now my iphoto library on the old mac book is gone!!!!
    How did you search for the iPhoto Library?
    What do you mean by "is gone"?  Is the iPhoto Library missing from the Pictures folder?  Or does iPhoto launch and show and empty library, and you assume, that the library is missing?
    Which version of iPhoto is installed on your old Mac?
    Search with Find Any File for iPhoto Libraries -  download Find Any File here: The trial is free:
    http://apps.tempel.org/FindAnyFile/index.htmlhttp://apps.tempel.org/FindAnyFile/index.php
    You can search everywhere with FindAnyFile, where Spotlight will not search. 
    I learned this  from Old Toad , see his post here:
    Re: My iPhoto Library disappeared...how do I get it back?
    Download and run Find Any File to search for a file with "ThumbJPGSegment" in the file name. These are files common to all versions of  iPhoto libraries.
    FAF can search areas that Spotlight can't like invisible folders, system folders and packages. If there's a library hiding somewhere on your hard drive FAF will find it.

  • I recently purchased a new Mac Pro and have been trying to back it up on my Time Capsule for the first time.  However, it says there is no available disk space. This time capsule was used with my old Mac Pro that had a Home vault open on it.

    The time capsule was used with my prior Mac Pro laptop that unfortunately had the home vault active on it.
    My new Mac Book Pro does not have home vault open.  But I am unable to back up my new MAC pro laptop because it says there is not enough storage space available.  Therefore, t there any way to just completely delete all the old backup data out of my Time Capsule from my prior Mac Laptop? 
    When I go into the time capsule - it shows me NOTHING as being in the backup datas.  So, I don't know where to begin to delete all the old data off the
    time Capsule and start with a completely empty machine. 

    Therefore, t there any way to just completely delete all the old backup data out of my Time Capsule from my prior Mac Laptop?
    Here is how to do this:
    Open Macintosh HD > Applications > Utilities > AirPort Utility
    Click Manual Setup
    Click the Disks icon at the top of the AirPort Utility window
    Click the Disks tab below the icons
    Click Erase
    The "Quick Erase" option will only take a moment or two
    Now you can backup your MacBook Pro. If you connect an Ethernet cable from the MBP to one of the LAN <-> ports on the TC, the first backup will go 3-5 times faster than wireless.
    Once you have the first backup done, you can use wireless for subsequent backups since they will only take a few minutes

    Wow, Karan Taneja, you've just embarrassed yourself on a worldwide support forum.  Not only is your post ridiculous and completely inappropriate for a technical support forum, but it also shows your ignorance as to whom you think the audience is.  Apple is not here.  It's users, like you. 
    If you would have spent half the time actually reading the Terms of Use of this forum that YOU agreed to by signing up to post, as you did composing that usesless, inappropriate post, you (and the rest of us on this forum) would have been much better off.

  • I'm trying to restore my phone from back up but am being told the file is corrupt or incompatable with the device, but it's the only device I have! Am quite desperate as I lost all my photos and have no idea where they went or how to get them back.

    I was trying to copy the photos from my iphone onto my laptop, had them selected and then the laptop froze. Was also doing a software update on iphone (which I thoughi had finished). When I went back to the phone the photos were gone. I was also unable to find them on the laptop :-( (they were all of my new little baby)
    On trying to restore from previous backup, I got a message that the file was corrupt or not compatable with the current device, but I only have this phone to use and no other devices.
    I am unable to find any appropriate help topics on apple support. Any advice would be really appreciated

    Because it says it's incompatible when it can't be, I got hope. I get error messages all the time with my iPod and iPhone that it cannot sync and that 'this device is not capapble of connecting to iTunes' stuff. I literally forget that happened, plug it in again and it works, I later realize that iTunes made a mistake, they do that.

  • I can't import vertical photos to my iPad using the camera connection kit. Horizontal photos import without a problem, but verticals have a red exclamation mark. Help?!

    I can't import vertical photos to my iPad using the camera connection kit. Horizontal photos import fine, but verticals have a red exclamation mark, and do not import. Help!?

    I have the same problem and apple needs to fix this - but in the mean time you can manually select the vertical photos then "import - import selected" and you can get your verticals. We need a better fix. THIS IS A BUG!

  • I have recently purchased a new Mac...

    The Apple store transferred all of my applications to my new laptop. Ever since I cannot launch my Adobe products. Even when I try and open a pdf, I get the error message that I need to first launch another program first like Photoshop before launching Acrobat. Very frustrating.

    Adobe products cannot be transferred, they need to be installed using installation files.  Uninstall, use the CS Cleaner tool and reinstall.

  • Recently purchased a new mac and now my camcorder (PV-GS300) which worked with a firewire connection is no longer available on the new mac ports - they are thunderbolt - how do I download my videos - I do not want to purchase a new camcorder?

    Went to Apple store and the "genius" was no help - Spent $70.00 for 2 cords - 1 that is the thunderbolt connection and the 2nd was for a belkin cord that was suppose to convert and make my old firewire cord compatible - when I went to hook everything up there was no way to attach my old cord and the new belkin cord converter is not with my camera - extremely frustrated

    Sorry. Answered while my coffee was brewing and didn't read your post carefully enough.
    I guess you can consider my replies as bumps then.
    Hopefully someone with a better idea will see it because I have none now.

  • I purchased four new MAC's one month ago; I was promised 'the Cloud'.  Now I can't load it.  Where do I get10.7.2?  I am running10.6 and have todays updates but no 10.7!

    How do I get 10.7.2 to load on my brand new MACS!?  Thanks for your help folks!
    David

    First you need to update your Mac's to Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, you can download it a the app store.  If you purchased your Mac's a month ago the download should be free take a look at this link, http://www.apple.com/macosx/uptodate/  After you updated your systems to Lion just click on the Apple menu item and click on software update it will update your version to Mac OS 10.7.2.  Note: The last step is just incase the latest version of Lion is not at the App Store. 

  • Missing Songs in iTunes Music folder.

    I recently found that I have missing files in my iTunes music folder. The missing songs seem to be random. For instance, Abby Road is missing tracks 3 and 6. My music folder is on my main hard drive and I also have a Time Capsule backup.
    When I look for the songs in my backup disk, I find I have to go back as far as 4 months to restore some of them and I just now found a song that was there yesterday but gone today. This leads me to believe that a few songs are randomly being deleted every day. Anyone else with this problem?
    I'm using iTunes 10.1 but apparently I've been having this problem for at least 4 months now so I believe it was an earlier version when it started happening.

    redcore,
    I got an answer from AppleCare on this one and it seems to be working as I have not noticed any more lost songs. The first person I talked to had never heard of this but his boss had and told me I needed to create a new iTunes music folder. This is a bit of a pain, but not as bad as going through TimeMachine to replace all the random, missing files (that part took a while).
    You have to Option-click (hold option while you click) on the iTunes icon and then click "Create new library". Name it something different from your old one and then drag all your old content into the new library. You will have to do this with the music, apps, movies, etc. Also, keep in mind you will have to export all your playlist info to the new iTunes as well. I didn't export them all so I'm not sure how, or if, you can do them all at the same time. I did File/Library/Export Playlist in the old iTunes... Than had to do File/Library/Import Playlist when in the new iTunes I had created.
    Hope this helps
