Organizing music btwn  iTunes & Touch 3g

Example: Newly added songs are in alphabetical order in iTunes on the Touch they are not in alphabetical order under newly added.
Organizing music btwn iTunes & Touch 3g

A known bug in the Touch's 3.1.x OS. The workaround is to edit the smart playlist and add the criteria "Playlist Is Music", where Music is the general folder in your iTunes library for music items. Do that and re-sync, then you'll have what you want.

  • Organizing music in ITunes by pre-existing folders in Windows

    I'm a brand new user of Itunes, Just got an Ipod Touch for my new car stereo (Pioneer Avic Z110bt) which has a great interface for ipods. I have until now strictly used a program called Winamp to play all my music and I love it. I have organized all my music into folders based on Mood (Relaxing, Popular, Heavy Metal, Depressing, Psyched). Is there anyway to keep this organization in ITunes? I never listen to music by artist or genre. I know I could create playlists of all the folders I have created but that would take forever, unless I'm just missing something. Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Awesome the playlist idea worked very well, I just removed all my music from the main directory and just made playlists, that way no increased space taken up for no reason on my harddrive and no additional unwanted folders Thank you!

  • Organizing music in iTunes

    I apologize if this question has been posted in the past, but I'm having a difficult time successfully searching the thousands of threads here.
    I am a new iPod owner (80gb) and am trying to organize my music. I am running Windows XP and have my mp3s organized exactly as I'd like them on an external hard drive. My problem is that I cannot figure out how to get iTunes to import and organize them the same way.
    An example of how my music is organized (in Windows Explorer on my hard drive) is as follows:
    <folder> mp3s
    --<folder> classical
    ----<folder> bach
    ------*Winamp playlist(s)
    ----<folder> beethoven
    ------*subfolders within subfolders
    ----<folder> brahms
    --<folder> jazz
    ----<folder> charlie parker
    ------*Winamp playlist(s)
    ----<folder> miles davis
    Any suggestions on how to successfully make my iTunes library look like my Windows Explorer library would be much appreciated. I've spent considerable time in the past organizing my files and playlists into Windows folders/subfolders and would like to avoid re-learning how to re-organize everything in iTunes.
    Thank you!

    No, iTunes cannot do as you want.
    It organizes on the drive by Artist -> Album.
    But everything is done in iTunes. so how/where it is stored on the drive is pretty much irrelevant.
    You can maintain your own structure in one of two ways.
    iTunes prefs -> Advanced.
    Uncheck Copy files to iTunes music folder when adding to library.
    File -> Add folder to library and start adding yoru folders. They will go into iTunes but willstay where they are. iTunes will not copy them into the iTunes music folder.
    iTunes prefs -> Advanced.
    Uncheck Keep iTunes music folder organized.
    Drag your music folders into the iTunes music folder.
    File -> Add Folder to library and select these folders.
    iTunes will keep the directory structure as it is and simply add them the library.
    If you later tick Keep iTunes music folder organized, it will move and rename everything according to the ID3 tags into Artis -> Album folders.
    Note that iTunes playlists are not saved as a separate file like WinAmp or WMP. They are part of the iTunes library file.

  • Organizing music in Itunes for Ipod.

    When I transfer a WAV files from my computer all the songs get organized by index number and NOT by artist and album. This just creates a big indecipherable mess when I upload to my ipod. (the files I'm transferring from my have been organized by artist and album title so the info is definitely available)
    Is there any way to organize in Itunes by artist and album? (this seems like a ridiculous question to have to ask)

    try this:
    select the playlist in iTunes.
    right-click the playlist name and select +copy to play order+. sync the Touch.

  • Organizing Music in iTunes

    OK, this may be a simple issue, but it is driving me bonkers. Any help would be appreciated!
    I like to have my music organized by Album in my iTunes window. In the older versions, when you sorted by the Album column, it would then sub-sort by track number. For whatever reason, my music now sub-sorts alphabetically by Artist name. Most of the tim, that's ok on 'normal' albums. I have a lot of compilations however, so this throws the track listing well out of order.
    How can I get my music sorted by album and then by track number?
    Thanks in advance!

    I can see what is going on, this is a multi artist album and when you sort by album, you get Album>Artist>Track number.
    Try filling in The album artist field. You can select all the tracks in the album together, then right click get info.
    This lets you change the album artist field in all the tracks at once. You need to have the same album artist for all the tracks, the field is not normally displayed unless you choose to select the column for display. I am not sure if it is necessary to flag the album as a compilation as well - you can do this in the multi - Get info window as well.

  • Organizing music on iPod Touch

    I don't seem to be able to organize my iPod Touch music via the iTunes window that opens on my iMac when I attach my Touch. I can open the Touch music window, but can only highlite a song, I can't reorder the categories, do a category search, erase a song(s), NADA!

  • Organizing music for iTunes/ipod- help

    Example, I have several Tom Petty songs. However, 3 songs are in one place, 1 song in another place, 7 songs in another place.
    SO.. when I go to play all my Tom Petty, and I hit the Tom Petty song that is in a separate folder it will auto stop after that one song, even though there are 10 more Tom Petty songs.
    How do I place all my singles by the same artist in the same folder so the music continually plays on my iPhone when I look up Tom Petty.

    Make a smart playlist.
    Artist contains Tom Petty.
    Didn't you ask this same question in another post?

  • Organizing music with iTunes Problem

    Hi, I had downtime today at work, and I decided to organize my iTunes library. However, some tracks are showing up on the same album, but not grouped together. I have selected every option possible in the Get Info menu. I have done all I can think of, yet these tracks still remain separate
    Here are some picture examples:
    Like I've said, I've checked at made sure the tracks for the albums all have the same Get Info information. Help?

    Oh, that always works for me. Do you set Album Artist? If not try setting that as well - either to the artist or if a compilation set to, say, 'Various'
    Or the site turingtest2 links looks like it'll help

  • I used to download music from Itunes to an Ipod nano.  How can I get my music on my new Ipod Touch???

  • I have music on iPod touch that isn't listed in iTunes, can't seem to "manage" the content

    Sheesh. I know it's supposed to be simple & intuitive, but I can't quite figure some things out.  Now, I may have reloaded iTunes since I had to rebuild my PC.  Fortunately, my library of music - mainly from CDs - was saved on a backup.
    1.  I have some music that isn't quite listed in iTunes
    Creedence Clearwater Revival album Chronicle Volume 1 also shows up as Chronicle, Vol.1 on the iPod
    but it shows up only as Chronicle, Vol. 1  in my Music Library.  How did it duplicate itself and how do I get rid of the duplicates?
    note that these duplicates do not appear in iTunes, so clicking on Display Duplicates does not find them.
    2.  I cannot remove the rogue versions of songs either directly from the iPod or from iTunes
    3.  I cannot adjust the columns or sort order when viewing my iPod's Music in iTunes
    4.  Sync is not checked for any of the categories in iTunes
    if I check the Sync box for music, it states it will wipe out my music and replace it with my library.  My whole library won't fit on my 8 GB iPod.  How do I pick and choose what goes to the iPod.  Do I really need to wipe out the contents of my iPod first?
    5.  Last question - Can I assign the album art that was ripped from my CDs to the albums/songs imported from My Music in Windows to iTunes? 
    So I'm a bit frustrated but very open to solutions.  My iPod touch is maxed out and I want to adjust what content - pictures, apps, music & playlists only - gets loaded on the iPod.
    Help!  Help! Thanks!!

    - From your description you did something to iTunes on the computer such that the iPod sees ythe iTunes library as a new library.  That is why you are getting the message about erasing when you try to sync.  Yu can, as you are doing, managing music with the computer since you can do that among different conputer.  See:
    Using iPhone, iPad, or iPod with multiple computers
    - If all music, apps, sysnced photos are on the computer you  need to:
    --- Make a backup of the iPod by connecting the iPod to the computer and right clicking on the iPod under Devices in iTunes and selecing Backup and then restore the iPod from that backup.
    - You can transfer iTunes purchases to the computer by:
    iTunes Store: Transferring purchases from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod to a computer
    - You can transfer non-iTunes purchaed music by using one of the third-party programs discussed here. Some of those may also do synced photos.

  • Please Help Me. iPod Touch 5th generation will not download music from itunes

    My son has an IPod touch 5th generation that he got for Christmas (3 months old :(!  All of a sudden if he is on iTunes and buys a song it won't download. It will say its already been purchased but its not in downloads.  I have soft reset and now finally did the erase all data and settings.  When it started up and i signed into icloud everything started downloading but the music.  If I go into the iTunes app and hit purchased music I can see all the music but when I go to hit specific artists it sits and loads (circle is circling) and won't show me the individual song titles.  I'm sick to my stomach that the iPod is not fixable because I can't afford to buy my son a new one and I haven't finished paying this one off.  Can anyone help me please?   I can add music from iTunes on my computer directly to the iPod when plugged in. So I am assuming this means something is wrong with iPod.    Any help will be appreciated.  Thank you.

    First, don't obsess over it.  If, in fact, there is something wrong with the iPod, it's still in warranty.  Now, I don't know for certain what will fix this for you but here are some suggestions, beginning with one that's quick and easy.
    First, try a system reset.  It cures many ills and it's quick, easy and harmless...
    Hold down the on/off switch and the Home button simultaneously until you see the Apple logo.  Ignore the "Slide to power off" text if it appears.  You will not lose any apps, data, music, movies, settings, etc.
    If the Reset doesn't work, try a Restore.  Note that it's nowhere near as quick as a Reset.  It could take well over an hour!  Connect via cable to the computer that you use for sync.  From iTunes, select the iPad/iPod and then select the Summary tab.  Follow directions for Restore and be sure to say "yes" to the backup.  You will be warned that all data (apps, music, movies, etc.) will be erased but, as the Restore finishes, you will be asked if you wish the contents of the backup to be copied to the iPad/iPod.  Again, say "yes."
    At the end of the basic Restore, you will be asked if you wish to sync the iPad/iPod.  As before, say "yes."  Note that that sync selection will disappear and the Restore will end if you do not respond within a reasonable time.  If that happens, only the apps that are part of the IOS will appear on your device.  Corrective action is simple -  choose manual "Sync" from the bottom right of iTunes.
    If you're unable to do the Restore, go into Recovery Mode per the instructions here.
