Music Library in iTunes 2.03 & iPod on OS9.2.2 but I want

to move my library to iTunes 6.0.3 on Mini mac with 10.4.5 and move my iPod (2nd generation) from iMac G3 to Mac mini.
How in the name of Apple Macintosh can I make THIS SWITCH?
I have stored my original iMac G3 HD with 9.2.2 (and iTunes 2.03) on an external Seagate Fire Wire partition that also has a partition for my new Mac mini with 10.4.5 (and iTunes 6.0.3).
Does that help me?

and see if it can be of help.
The procedure I described and tested in that topic will also retain the playlists.

  • IPod touch will no longer sync with my music library on iTunes since restoring to factory settings

    I had to restore the ipod when it locked my son out as he'd forgotten the passcode.
    I have around 1000 songs in my music library on itunes. Sync all songs is checked, but it saying there are 0 songs.
    I'd like to sync all songs to the ipod.  Can anyone help please?

    Syncing is iTunes keeping your iTunes library (or a defined portion of the iTunes library) "in sync" (the same as) the library on your iPod.  And iTunes syncing of content generally goes in one direction only, from iTunes library on computer to the iPod.  That's why, if you want to sync it to a NEW iTunes library, iTunes is warning you that the existing library on the iPod will be replaced.
    So, you cannot transfer song files from iPod to computer using iTunes (except for songs purchased from the iTunes Store). However, there are third-party methods and utilities that can transfer from iPod to computer.  If you do a Google search on something like "ipod transfer," you should get some links.
    Once the song files are on your computer, you can add them to your iTunes library.  Once your iTunes library is consolidated with ALL of your songs, you can sync your iPod to it.
    NOTE:  If you have songs previously purchased from the iTunes Store on the iPod, you can re-download them at no cost, from the iTunes Store Purchased screen.  The link to Purchased is on the iTunes Store Home screen, under QUICK LINKS.

    HHHHHEEEELLLLPPPP!!!! PPPLLLEEEAAASSSEEE!!!!!!

    You buy one and only one download.
    As it should have been transferred to your computer when you synced, you can contact itunes support and ask for an exception.

  • Had to have my hard drive rebuilt in my PC (not Mac). When I reinstalled my music library from iTunes, several of the songs did not download properly - they appear in light colored ink on my library list but the songs will not play and will not synch

    Had to have my hard drive rebuilt in my PC (not a Mac).  When I reinstalled my music library from itunes, some of the songs did not properly download.  They appear in light colored ink, but will not play and will not synch with my iPod.  How can I get all of my songs back?

    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.

  • How do I get the Air to add my music library to iTunes?

    I successfully used migration assistant to transfer all my music from a Windows PC to my new Mac Air.  How do I get the Air to add my music library to iTunes?

    msailar wrote:
    thanks for the hint Chris.  I took your meaning of the word "respind" as restarting my Air after the migration.
    Actually, it was "respond" (to this post).
    If you are not sure of anything below, post back before deleting anything.
    You can simply copy the items tin the migrated user to your current user account.
    Drag the Music folder, Pictures folder and Documents folder to /Users/Shared.
    Then log out of this user and log into your regular user account.
    Open 2 finder windows. On teh Finder icon in the dock, right click - New Finder window
    Open one to Users/Shared & the other to your user.
    On Shared, open Music and drag the contents to your user Music folder.
    Do the same for Pictures and Documents (into the same folders).
    After it finishes copying, open iTunes and everything should be there.
    You can then delete /Users/Shared/Music/ folder.
    Do the same for Pictures & Documents.
    After everything is copied and you are sure it's in your current user folder, go to System prefs > Users & Accounts and you can delete the new user that you did Migration Assistant with.

  • After yesterday's "upgrade", iTunes can no longer find and play my music library.  It points to the correct location in "Advanced", but clearly iTunes is not actually seeing it.

    After yesterday's "update", iTunes can no longer find and play my music library.  It points to the correct location in "Advanced", but clearly iTunes is not actually seeing it.  What gives?  And why does Apple force these constant updates that just screw up everything?  It was all working fine yesterday before I ran the update.

    Does anyone know where I can get support for this issue?

  • Adding existing music library to iTunes from an external drive

    Hello -
    Just purchased my first Mac and have moved from a PC. I have about 200 Gigs of music saved on my external hard drive and would like to import my music library to itunes on my macbook pro without adding to the macbook internal memory. Can someone explain how I can do this? Thanks in advance.

    go iTunes > preferences > advanced and check if there a tick in the box next to +copy files to ... when adding to library+.
    if there is, connect the external to the Mac and, using the finder, drag the folder containing the music files into an open iTunes window *while pressing option on your keyboard*.
    if you want to be able to play the content on the drive, be sure the drive is mounted on your desktop next time you launch iTunes !

  • HT1473 After a catostrophic crash how do I download my music back to itunes from my ipod?

    After a catostrophic crash how do I download my music back to itunes from my ipod?

    It has always been very basic to always maintain a backup copy of your computer for this very occasion.  Use your backup copy to put everything back.
    If for some reason you have failed to maintain a backup, not good, then you can transfer itunes purchases from your ipod: File>Devices>Transfer Purchases

  • Did a full recovery on hp with Vista. Using external HD, I reinstalled my music library, and installed iTunes from net.  Following instructions given in iTunes, I was unable to import my music library into iTunes.  Any advice, comments, etc,?

    After recovery I am not able to load my existing music library into iTunes.  I followed instructions given in iTunes.  Any comments/suggestions?

    Do you see the library and media files on your external drive?
    If you recovered the iTunes folder from <User's Music> in the backup to your current <User's Music> folder then the library should all be there with no need to import anything.
    Depending on how you backed up the data it is possible that the recovered files are missing the security permissions that iTunes needs to access them. See epair security permissions for iTunes for Windows for advice on how to check and reset if necessary.

    Hi, Abril_Perez17.
    This may be related to a new feature embedded in iOS7 that shows all purchased music by default.  Go to Settings > Music, then turn off Show All Music.  See if the issue ceases once the feature has been disabled.  This information is located on page 63 of the user guide below.

    If you do not want the duplicate files, maybe the best thing to do first is to eliminate as many duplicates as you can..
    You can use iTunes: View/Show Duplicate Items
    Or you could use one a script
