Itunes on external drive will not open - error message 13014

I have never posted a question here before - just kind of been stumbling my way around the forums looking for answers, which has usually worked for me - until today.  About a year ago, I moved my itunes (music and movies) to an external drive to free up space on my imac - following instructions in one of these forums.  It has been working with very few issues until today.  Suddenly, I am unable to open itunes.  I get the error message 13014. I have tried restarting (several times) and updating itunes with no luck.  I am at a complete loss.  I am afraid if someone asks how exactly I moved my itunes library, I won't be able to answer that.  Until today, I've been opening up my itunes by holding down the option key while opening itunes, and it has worked just fine, but now I am faced with this error message and no itunes.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • My iTunes will not open, error message 13014, help!

    My itunes will not open on my Macbook Pro, everytime I try it says error message 13014, what does this mean? Thank you!

    Hold the option key while starting iTunes and create a new library. Does it start now? If so, it's something to do with your library file. Is there anything we should know about your computer such as you keeping your library on a NAS?

  • ITunes will not open, Error message -45054

    My itunes on my Mac will not open, all that comes up is this message
    "An unkown error occurred (-45054)"
    I can't seem to find the source of the problem and all the drop downs from the menu bar are not able to be clicked on so can't really get anymore informaion out of it.
    can anyone help me out?

    Murray3703, only one other time did this happen to me.  It was over 6 years back when I had an iPod Nano and after doing the reinstallation, it wiped out all of the content and applications and corrupted by Nano to the point Apple said it could not be fixed.  I had no other things corrupted on my laptop.  So, I know it was not a virus.
    I have tried fixing the problem with redownloading and "repairing" the problem but, it did not work.  Since the Nano incident, I am somewhat reluctant to do this for fear that I will loose all of my content and paid applications to apple?  I also have Windows 7. 
    Did you have any issues with uninstalling and reinstalling? Thanks.

  • Quicktime and itunes will not open error message

    I think their is suppose to be two files (QuickTime.qts and QuickTimeVR.qtx) in the systems 32 folder. But there is a quick.ime also in the folder, do I delete it so that my quicktime and itunes work.

    No, quick.ime is not part of Quicktime. Don't delete it.
    If Quicktime will not open, then iTunes can't work.
    Can you give the Quicktime error message in full, and also check in your Windows error logs or Problems & solutions to see if there is more information there.
    You haven't given your Windows version which helps when troubleshooting.

  • Itunes 12 will not open - error Message 2

    I recently purchased an ipod nano for my daughter.  When trying to sync the nano with ITunes.  ITunes was shutting down as soon as I would plug the Nano into my laptop.  I removed ITunes and reinstalled iTunes.  Now, ITunes will not even open and I keep receiving the following error message:
    Apple Application Support is required to run iTunes.  Please uninstall Itunes and re install ITunes.
    Error 2 (Windows Error 2)
    I have tried removing and re installing iTunes several times and I have also followed other suggestions such as deleting bonjour, mobile me and other folders and starting over with a new install of ITunes with no luck.
    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated...
    Cheers,

    jgh
    Thanks for reply.
    I understood that Sandeep Singh helped you with the Premiere Elements issue of the 0xe000007b error, but what about the Photoshop Elements problem that you asked about when you wrote the following?
    Now, all of a sudden, Photoshop Elements 12 will only load the trial version and I loaded the full version from same cd at the same time as Premier.
    That is why I wrote to ask the following, asking
    Have you resolved your Photoshop Elements 12 concerns since your December 12, 2013 post (5)? If not....
    Are you saying that, if you get the Photoshop Elements 12 tryout dialog presented to you,
    a. you cannot ignore the Continue Trial
    and
    b. then use the License this product field to insert your purchased serial number?
    If the Photoshop Elements 12 matter is resolved, how did you do that?
    Thanks.

  • Itunes will not open, Error Message :

    (Message reads) Itunes cannot run because it has detected a problem with your audio configuration.
    This has begun happening on my computers over the past couple of weeks. It first happened on the primary system I use for my Ipod and then today while attempting to get sround this error message I updated my Itunes and the problem is now on both systems. I have changed nothing in my audio configuration and am getting a little fed up at this particular message. My computers had easily and painlessly utilized itunes for nearly a year without any problem anywhere near one like this. My suspicion is there is something amiss with the update.

    Since iTunes uses QuickTime to play audio/video content in iTunes, that error message most likely indicates that there's a problem with your Quicktime installation.
    Check out this knowledge base article for information about the issue:

  • Mail will not open - error message says home directory is full

    I am running 10.4.3 on a dual 800 PowerPC G4 with 1.5 GB SDRAM.
    I also run 10.4.3 on one PowerBook G4 and 2 iBooks.
    I retain on my computer a large number of email messages but have plenty of room in my .Mac file
    I run several hundred email messages per day.
    Three days ago when I attempted to open Mail, I rec'd error message "Mail cannot update your mailboxes because your home directory is full. You must free up space in your home folder before using Mail. Delete unneeded documents or move documents to another volume."
    I have deleted many files from the home folder and moved others. I still get the same error message.
    I have experienced no problems with accessing my mail using my PowerBook G4 with similar config and OS.

    Power Mac G4   Mac OS X (10.4.3)  

    Try this:
    Try the following:
    With Mail quit and using the Finder, go to Home > Library > Mail.
    Move the Mail folder to the Desktop.
    Launch Mail and a new Mail folder (and account named folders within) will be created automatically.
    All new mailboxes will be empty but if this allows the Mail.app to function properly, you can use the Import Mailboxes feature to import selected mailboxes or manually replace mailboxes from the old Mail folder one at a time to determine which mailbox was causing the problem

  • Compressor will not open - error message

    Error message reads:
    Error trying to open source media file.
    when opening the program. Then after clicking the ok button, the program closes. Is there anything to be done about this? Are there preferences that can be scrapped to solve this problem, and open the program?

    when I try to run the freakin Compressor program, it shows up with an error message saying "Configuration error - This software requires certain hardware or software which is missing. -AGP graphics card." I have to click the "Quit" button everytime.
    Anyone else with this same issue? or advice on how to fix it?

  • Illustrator File Will Not Open -  Error message "Object label badly formatted"

    I have been working on a large image file for one of my classes; it has many layers and custom swatches, no text. I work on Creative Cloud at home, CS6 at school, and I think I had my .ai file saved under legacy file format CS4 trying to be safe (because I was not sure of my school's version and I have had a lot of problems accessing my files at school because of the version differences). I have been working on it back and forth between computers for quite a while, and today--while I had the image on my computer recently--it says "Acrobat PDF File Format is having difficulties: Object label badly formatted" if I try to open it.
    I have tried: updating Adobe Illustrator; creating a new AI document and "placing" the file into it; opening the file in Acrobat (the file opened, which was a step...but it only showed a tiny portion of the artwork and left the rest blank. Under the tools, however, it still showed the image had 15 layers (under the layer menu)--and it had them marked them as "visible"--but there wasn't anything I could do to actually view them; I tried copy/pasting into illustrator from Acrobat; opening in Acrobat and "saving as" a PDF (it said "The document could not be saved. There was a problem reading the document (111)"; and I just did a system restore hoping that could exorcise the demons--but no such luck so far.
    Do you have any ideas? I would greatly appreciate any words of wisdom and support you might have...and chocolate.
    Thanks for reading this.

    We now understand the problem, and are testing a solution. Here's my current understanding of all the elements of this issue.
    CAUSE: The problem occurs in an interaction between Illustrator CS4, Suitcase Fusion 2 v13.2, and having an Illustrator document with one or more text boxes, containing text, which is *completely* off the artboard—not even the bounding box is touching the artboard. *Additionally*, there must also be at least one text box, with text in it, which is *on* the artboard (even so much as having the bounding box partly on the artboard is sufficient, again). When these conditions are met, saving the document *may* (but does not always) cause the problem.
    PROBLEM: Attempting to open an affected document in Illustrator CS4 fails, with an "object label badly formatted" error. The problem can occur with older illustrator documents opened in CS4, as well as native CS4 documents.
    UNAFFECTED: Despite any speculation in this thread, this problem does not affect Photoshop, nor has it occurred with any version of Extensis Suitcase older than Suitcase Fusion 2 v13.2, which shipped about eight days ago.
    SOLUTION: The problem should be resolved by a 13.2.1 dot release. Although things could be delayed if we find something unexpected in testing, we currently expect to have the fix available this week, probably tomorrow (Thursday).
    DOCUMENT RECOVERY: Extensis can fix any Illustrator CS4 document which exhibits this problem. For now, contact Extensis tech support if you need help with recovering any such Illustrator document. Be prepared to send tech support the affected Illustrator file(s). You can use the online contact form at http://www.extensis.com/en/support/contact_prod_support.jsp, or call tech support at 1-503-274-7030.

    My external hard drive will not open and only shows up in Disk Utilities. When I try yo repair it, it give me and error of invalid sibling link. How do I fix my external hard drive?

    Invalid sibling link may not be fixable by Disk Utility. (Disk Utility is very conservative, and will not attempt repairs that might cause you to lose data.)
    It is an indication of serious Directory damage.
    that leaves
    a) third-party Utilities that will take those risks, or
    b) re-initializing the drive (which deletes all your data) and restoring from another backup source.
    c) "Copying off whatever files you can salvage" has gone by, and you cannot copy anything off a drive that will not mount. You may be able to use "rescue" programs such as prosoft engineering Data Rescue to copy files to another drive, but that sounds a lot better than its reality. You may get many files, but not get ANY filenames.

  • Itunes document manager pro will not open a document with .cwk extension. It will catch the document then error message states that it cannot open document. Can anyone tell me what Im doing wrong?

    Itunes document manager pro will not open a document with .cwk extension. It will catch the document then error message states that it cannot open document. Can anyone tell me what Im doing wrong?

    Forgive my ignorance but I have never hear of iTunes Document Manager Pro. If you mean Document Manager Pro, i was able to find that. Back to your problem, have you tried opening one of those files in the iOS iWorks apps? Form the quick read that I did about this, .cwk files can be opened by Pages, Numbers or Keynote, depending on what type of document that it is and those files can be read by Document Manager Pro, after properly saving them. I don't see that you can go directly from the .cwk file in Document Manager Pro without converting them first.
    I took a very quick look at the app, so I may be a missing something about its capability.
