Itunes wont play in random

i have always played it in random mode but since the last update it just goes in its normal order. any ideas?

Welcome to the forums.
There can be some goofy stuff with purchased iTunes music. You can make the songs much more stable (and playable) if you create a playlist in iTunes and burn it to disc (CD). If you then import the songs, the new versions will be more stable and they will play on DVDs etc.

  • Itunes wont play anything, windows 7

    itunes wont play anything.i hit play and it goes to pause but does not count guessing it is because of the update that i did to itunes.please help.

    I am having the same problem and that didn't fix it.
    I purchased a new laptop with Windows 7 64 bit. I downloaded the install file. When I double click the icon nothing happens.
    I Downloaded the install cleanup utility and ran that (nothing with itunes in it).
    I Downgraded the UAC to the lowest security setting.
    I re-downloaded the install file and tried again.
    I deleted all the temp files in the user file folder.
    I made the install file compatible with Windows Vista (SP 2).
    Still nothing. I double click (or right click and run as administrator) and nothing happens.

  • Ive lost sound from my iMac, and itunes wont play

    Ive been having trouble with my mac for a few weeks - since losing my Microsoft Office suite and trying to reinstall it.  Wont allow me to as hard drive is full.  Then lost all info on screen - grey screen on lonin - so rebooted in Safety Mode and got most things back, but iTunes wont play and I can't get any sound when playing YouTube videos.  Any tips?

    Also - have checked my System Preferences for Audio input and output - it is saying "No devices found" - I haven't even go the option to click on inbuilt device?  It is not letting me change any of the settings, such as the Mute checkbox.

  • I torrented new songs but itunes wont play them how do i make them work?

    i torrented new music and itunes wont play them saying the files cannot be found the files are still on the computer and i can find them just find but itunes cant. how do i make itunes recognize, find and play my new music?

    I don't think it's your iPod. I reckon it's something to do with the tracks themselves. I've been searching through similar posts and have tried the following suggestions (without any luck):
    - swap you iPod cable to another USB port and re-sync
    - whilst the iPod is connected, deauthorise your computer in iTunes and then authorise it
    - re-created my iTunes library (as your iPod can only sync with one library, it will wipe clean your iPod and re-sync it) -
    - have even restored my iPod
    and still the 3 tracks will not play. However, I have subsequently downloaded another track (different album and artist) and that plays just fine. I have since contacted customer services about this and they have been very quick to respond, but unfortunately the re-download solution they proposed hasn't worked either so they have escalated the problem internally.
    One thing I have tried (and I think it's legit??), is to burn the tracks to a CD. Remove the originals from your iTunes library to another folder. Re-import the tracks back into iTunes and re-sync. I've tried this and the tracks will now play on my iPod. I believe the above process strips off the DRM, so maybe the problem lies with the DRM encoding and your iPod believes you don't have permission to play the tracks when in fact you do. If you don't feel comfortable about doing this, I would contact customer services.



    Hello choefer_fish,
    It sounds like you have some video files in iTunes that do not play when you select them in the program, but do play when you double click the files themselves. I would start by checking to see that iTunes is accessing the correct iTunes library by checking the Advanced tab of its preferences:
    Windows: Choose Edit > Preferences.
    Click the Advanced pane. iTunes shows the location of your iTunes Media folder.
    From: Where are my iTunes files located?
    If the location here matches the location you go to when you double click the files, then I would next use the Consilidate Library command to see if that gets iTunes to see it:
    iTunes 11 for Windows: Change where your iTunes files are stored
    Consolidate your files in the iTunes folder
    You can consolidate all the files in your library in the iTunes folder—for example, to make it easier to move your library to a new computer.
    Choose File > Library > Organize Library.
    Select “Consolidate files.”Files remain in their original locations, and copies are placed in the iTunes folder.

  • Itunes wont play some of my songs...and it used to!

    I had to reinstall windows ... as i have done several times in the past.. and when i added my music folder, which is on an external HD, over 500 songs wont add to the library. they will play in QT and WMP but not in itunes. when clicked itunes will open but then nothing...doesnt even show the song in the list.
    Here is an example of a song that will not play, show up, or anything:
    21 guns - Greenday
    mp3 audio
    8.66 MB
    Protected - NO
    Duration - 0:06:12
    bit rate - 224kbps
    channels - 2(stereo)
    audio sample rate - 44kHz
    i thought maybe something happened to all the songs around the same date but thats a no go. i have advanced mp3 catalog pro to organize my music and it has id3 editor v.2 but i use that for ALL my music not just these songs that now wont play. i tried removing the tag completely and recreating it and that also did not work. i have unintalled all itunes, apple, and quicktime applications and reinstalled ...still nothing. what now?

    If you don't mind a little brute force, convert them to WAV and then back to MP3:
    Use a 3rd party tool such as Switch to convert them to WAV. The conversion to WAV will wipe out every peculiarity of tags, etc (WAV is essentially just pure PCM-encoded music). Put the WAV into your iTunes library, make sure it plays, and then use iTunes to convert it to MP3.

  • Due to a broken laptop I've loaded my itunes from an external hard drive my itunes wont play unless i leave the the exteral hard drive connected. what is the problem?

    My laptop working Vista H Premium broke, I now have laptop working Mindows 7 H Premium. I reloaded my itunes from an external hard drive but they wont play without the external hard drive left plugged in

    The media is on the external drive.  If you want to be able to play it with the extrenal drive disconnected, this will require moving or copying the media off the external drive to the computer's hard drive.
    Importing the media via iTunes may automatically accomplish this, depending on the settings in iTunes.

  • Itunes wont play music after 10.5 update.

    no beach ball, nothing unusual. acts normal just doesnt play. i can scroll through a song or movie and it still wont play. ive reinstalled and it doesnt play. OS is osx lion 10.7.2 itunes version 10.5

    i had this problem and then figured out that i had toggled something to make itune airplay all my music to my living room apple tv -- so music output was going there and not to my computer.  bottom right hand corner of itunes screen there is a box with arrow pointing upwards into it which gives you the airplay options...make sure select to your computer

Now it plays on my home computer where the Itunes is syncd at, however it just wont play on my work laptop. I run Xp. Heres the thing... it recognizes my ipod, brings up my 'name' for it, shows all the songs and all the movies. It just wont let me play any of them. It wont let me select any to move into playlists. Its like Im looking at a pdf or something. Help!

    nevermind. Lock it up. Figured it out. I had to put Manually Manage Music on in order to play anything or create playlists. It got turned off when I installed the new version

  • Itunes wont play movies

    Can anyone help me ? my itunes which is version 11.0.1 wont play movies at all and i dont know why doe sanyone know why this is doing this ?

    I am having the same issue. I just rented Superbad, and now I can't get it to play. I don't even get a window to open like it's thinking about playing. iTunes just accesses the store, then does nothing.
    This is driving me nuts...

  • Itunes wont play the entire song

    I spent loads of money on songs from the itunes store today and the songs wont play the whole way through, any suggestions?

    If your country's iTunes Store allows you to redownload purchased tracks, I'd delete your current copies of the dodgy tracks and try redownloading fresh copies. For instructions, see the following document:
    Downloading past purchases from the App Store, iBookstore, and iTunes Store
    Otherwise, I'd report the problem to the iTunes Store.
    Log in to the Store. Click on "Account" in your Quick Links. When you're in your Account information screen, go down to Purchase History and click "See all".
    Find the items that are not playing properly. If you can't see "Report a Problem" next to the items, click the "Report a problem" button. Now click the "Report a Problem" links next to the items.
