Loaded itunes and its blank (like a brand new user), all my files are not showing!

Loaded up my PC this morning and then started iTunes as per normal but itunes loaded as if It was the first time I have used it, nothing at all (I have 15,200 songs along with all my iphone data ). I use iTunes every day, last time was yesterday afternoon. iTunes does show me logged into with my account and i can access the itunes store. I have restarted the computer and nothing changes. I have not done any system updates on either the PC or iTunes. Im not going to re sync my iphone or ipod incase it syncs with it and removes all the files/data.
Any suggestions please!!

Empty/corrupt library after upgrade/crash
Hopefully it's not been too long since you last upgraded iTunes, in fact if you get an empty/incomplete library immediately after upgrading then with the following steps you shouldn't lose a thing or need to do any further housekeeping. In the Previous iTunes Libraries folder should be a number of dated iTunes Library files. Take the most recent of these and copy it into the iTunes folder. Rename iTunes Library.itl as iTunes Library (Corrupt).itl and then rename the restored file as iTunes Library.itl. Start iTunes. Should all be good, bar any recent additions to or deletions from your library.
See iTunes Folder Watch for a tool to catch up with any changes since the backup file was created.
In the unlikely event that your media has been wiped from your computer see Recover your iTunes library from your iPod or iOS device.
When you get it all working make a backup!

  • Cityville: Since switching to the new beta, my facebook friends are not showing up in the friends list. When the page loads the list is blank. I can't send gifts or requests. Anyone know of a solution (short of uninstalling)?

    It will load Requests page, but there aren't any names showing in the box (you have to choose the friends name in order to send them something). Can't send gifts or requests because of this.

    You are waiting for an apology to something that happened over a year ago? Really? This is why there is a manager in the store. You have a problem with an employee you speak to the manager. Just like you did on the phone. You would have gotten your apology in July 2013.
    Here is the information about your upgrade fee.
    Upgrade Fee
    It is because when you have a problem you (customers) go running to the store and want to take up the time of the reps to fix it. Other carriers have third parties that deal with technical support and those locations are few and far between. VZW provides this directly through their stores. Also, when you subsidize a $650 and pay $200 VZW has to pay $400. Your monthly service fee doesn't begin to scratch the surface of paying that back. Not with all the money that is put into the network and its improvements.
    Then over a year later you get someone on the phone who apologized and offered to waive the fee on your phone and you didn't take it? That offer won't come down the pike again.
    One thing you should know is that all these employees are people and as such they sometimes come off cross. I doubt that you speak to everyone so sweetly all the time. Cut them a little slack and put this whole thing behind you after 15 months. Either upgrade with VZW or move on.

  • New Episodes of my Podcast are not showing up in the iTunes Music Store?

    this isn't really an "itunes for mac" question, but since i do my production on a mac, i'll ask it here!
    i produce and record a weekly podcast (about 2 hours each week) which has been listed in the iTMS since it started (last february)
    this last week we recorded episode 31 and uploaded it to my .mac account, and all went well... the new episode is downloading to anyone who already has subscribed to the rss feed (homepage.mac.com/airplayradio/podcast.xml), but it hasn't shown up in the iTunes Music Store... the software i use to upload the shows generates an automatic ping, and i've done a manual ping a couple of times a day since wednesday, but nothing...
    any ideas? absolutely -nothing- (software/hardware/etc.) has changed since i uploaded episode 30 a week ago, and that showed up within an hour...
    many thanks for any advice!
    PowerMac G5 Quad   Mac OS X (10.4.8)  

    well, i never got a reply directly to my question, but i was directed by email to post my problem within itunes... go to the podcast page of my podcast and then select "report a concern"... i always thought this was to report offensive podcasts, but if you click on that button you'll see a pull down list with a bunch of problems... i selected "difficulty downloading" and then explained the problem completely... as i said, i never heard back from anyone, but about 4 days later my podcast episode showed up... and this past wednesday we uploaded the latest episode and it showed up in the iTMS almost immediately... go figure?!
    if anyone's interested, the podcast name is Schnauzer Logic and its comedy and talk and music and pop culture (i used to be the host of a morning show)... good for a giggle once a week for a couple of hours.

  • EJB deployment problem --New remote interface class files are not loaded

    Hi, I face a problem while deploying an ear file in oc4j. I basically get some problems like the method in the remote interface is not implemented in the EJB class. But the implementation is actually available in the EJB class.
    We get this problem when we actually change the signature of the EJB remote methods. The new methods are not referenced by oc4j. Only the old version of remote interface is referenced by oc4j. But the latest version of EJB class is taken. I am using 9.0.3 version of the oc4j. Could you pls help me regarding this problem ?

    I have found the solution :-)
    You must add to the ejbCreate() method of the bean class throws javax.ejb.CreateException

  • I'm editing a video in imovie '08 and adding iphotos to the movie, but some of the photos are not showing. Help

    I'm editing the video of a presentation one of my clients has delivered, I'm adding the  slides of the presentation in as photos from iphoto, the problem is that some of the photos are now showing up in the video even though they have been added. Also where photo number 7 should be it is showing photo number 12? I really need to sort this out and need help. How do I get the photos to show and show properly in the right place?
    Thank you in advance

    I've got a list of things to look at and tryout to see if we can narrow down what's happening. Try any one in any particular order see if the problem keeps happening.
    1. What format are the original photos in?
    Are the all the same?
    If they are different, do some work and others do not?
    File formats that are “raw” may be a problem.
    File size may also be a problem if they are very large files.
    2. Duplicate the project in the Project Library
    Try dragging a photo into that copy of the project
    Any differences? If you can import photos into the Duplicate, try copying then pasting into the original and see if the image shows up.
    3. Duplicate a picture inside of iPhoto
    If you want to have a particular picture and can find it within iPhoto try making a duplicate.
    Does it show up in the Photo browser? And can you drag that duplicated picture into the project? What do you see, what result do you get?
    4. Clean the iMovie cache
    Quit out of iMovie. Then go to your Movies Folder > iMovie Events >  Project folder name
    Drag the folder "iMovie Thumbnails" to your trash. Then open the folder "iMovie Cache" and drag the file "Cache.plist" to the trash.
    This should regenerate any cached thumbnails for the project, may be helpful.
    5. Try tossing out the iMovie preferences
    Quit iMovie.
    Open a Finder window to your user's Home folder>Library >Preferences folder. Find the file named "com.apple.iMovie.plist" or "com.apple.iMovieAppl.plist" and move it to the trash.
    Try opening iMovie again, then opening the project and dragging a photo from the Photo Browser into the Project timeline.

  • I have itunes 11 and that cloud thing got my music onto my computer, but all those apps are not showing up. How do I get them?

    So yeah, basically ^^^^^ Please help!

    call the APPLE store, even though it reconize you purchase them already, APPLE will charge you again.  it happened to me.  when u call them they can resend them to your phone FREE of charge. It makes no sense, i mean they know you already purchase them, then y dont they just allow us to redownload them free of charge.SMDH

  • I didn't safely eject my external hard-drive and now my files are not showing up on my other computer?

    I didn't safely eject my external hard-drive as my imac was in sleep mode and I thought it was shut-down. Now I have turned up to uni and plugged my hard-drive into the uni computers (apple) and the word document I was working on last night (before my computer went to sleep mode, and it may still have been open, I cant remember) is gone.....
    I have phoned home and got a family member to try and recover the file. They said they can see it when they open Word under recent documents, however its "ghost" and nothing happens when you click on it.
    My question is, when I go home and plug my hard-drive back into my imac, will I be able to recover this word file? or have I lost it forever?

    I only saved it to my external hard-drive and saved it at the completion of working on it. However left the document open, went to dinner, and this morning pulled the hard-drive out, whilst the computer was asleep not shut-down and now the file doesn't appear.
    I thought when I clicked save then it saved straight away, therefore anything i do after that point (ie a un safe ejection) shouldn't make a difference. Clearly, no matter if you saved the document, if you un-safely eject the hard-drive then the file is lost anyway?

    - iOS: Not responding or does not turn on
    - Also try DFU mode after try recovery mode

    - If not successful and you can't fully turn the iOS device fully off, let the battery fully drain. After charging for an least an hour try the above again.
    - If still not successful that usually indicates a hardware problem and an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store is in order.

  • I tried to play my iTunes and suddenly get an error message that says "The song (name) could not be used because the original file could not be found.  Would you like to locate it now?"  It happens on all my tunes and each one I select ends up with a "?"

    I tried to play my iTunes and suddenly get an error message that says "The song (name) could not be used because the original file could not be found.  Would you like to locate it now?"  It happens on each tune I select and a "?" appears beside the song.  Does this sound familiar to anyone?

    I was not complete clear.
    Since you never changed the settings in the advanced section of iTunes preferecnes, you have to chech that your music is really in the location setted in the folders reported in the advanced section.  If not you have 2 ways: reset the position of this folders or in the actual disk organisation or in the pointing on the preferences.
    If you press the reset button you just give to itunes its default setting as for the position of the music files: probably this will be a good choice if you have never changed any default preference.
    But before I would check the folders and see if the songs are really there
    In my iTune I have this, and I believe it is the default.

  • When I upgraded to win 7 I was told to uninstall iTunes and its helper programs. Now when I try to install it I get this message that it's not part of the original program.

    When I upgraded to Windows 7 I was told to uninstall iTunes and its helper services. Now when I try to install it I get a message that says "the files I'm trying to install are not native to this program. Is this being blocked by Windows 7 security that I'm not used to.

    I understand where you are coming from.  I had the Ultimate Tier at one point, but I didn't watch alot of those channels so I downgraded. 
    Another problem with changing my tier back up to Ultimate is that I was told I would lose the discounts associated with the package I have now.  The discounts won't transfer to the new package and they can't give me an equal amount of discounts with a new package. At least with the Sports Pass, it is an add on like HBO, so you can cancel at anytime with no penalties or changes to your plan.
    Verizon does advertise the Sports Pass on its website.  Here are the channels.  The only ones I would be interested in would be beIN and ESPN Classic, since I will be losing that channel sometime in May since I only have the Extreme tier.
    beIN Sports HD
    CBS Sports Network
    ESPN Buzzer Beater HD
