Soritng songs on iTunes

I'm trying to sort my music library in iTunes by Album, with track numbers in order. Most albums do it when sorted by Album, but some albums don't. Is there any foolproof way to make that happen?

In what format have you imported the Music in your iTunes Library ?
If its Apple Lossless Encoder then it will take space more then a Regular Mp3 Songs which you might have Approx 150 Songs in a GB with a Low Bit Rate.

  • HT201272 I purchased songs from iTunes Radio on my iPhone, but now the only place they will show up is in the iTunes Store app on my phone, even after syncing to my computer a million times, the songs do not show up in my library or anywhere else.

    I purchased songs from iTunes Radio on my iPhone, but now the only place they will show up is in the iTunes Store app on my phone, even after syncing to my computer a million times, the songs do not show up in my library or anywhere else. My phone is not syncing properly, I wanted to add another playlist to it that I created on my Mac. I pluged in my phone and made sure the playlist I wanted to add was checked to be on my phone when I synced.
    The playlist I wanted to add was "Country." It is clearly checked. I also wanted to add the "Recently Added" playlist, which I also checked before sycing. Currently, my phone only has the "Purchased" playlist and my "All Songs" playlist on it. When I hit sync, iTunes added another playlist automatically added another playlist to the list above and checked it. It was titled "ALL SONGS 1" and had ten fewer songs in it than the playlist I had created, "ALL SONGS" had. This playlist, however does not show up on my phone after syncing, nor does "Country" or "Recently Added." (Every time I sync, another playlist is created as "ALL SONGS 2, 3, 4, etc.") One of the songs (I have not, yet checked the other songs) that I purchased from within iTunes Radio shows up in the "ALL SONGS 1" on this screen:
    But does not show up anywhere else. This playlist does not show up anywhere but the two screens above. The ALL SONGS 1 or 2 playlists do not show up here:
    When I search for those song in my library, it shows that I do not have them:
    But if I go to the iTunes store, I get the play button and not the price of the song:
    This is what things look like from my phone's side of things:
    "Summertime Sadness," one of the songs I bought from iTunes Radio, does not show up in the iTunes store under purchased "All" or "Not on This iPhone"
    But, it does show up under "Recent Purchases"
    Also, this is what playlists are on my phone after syncing a million times:
    Only what was on there before I started any of this. "Summertime Sadness" and the other songs I bought from inside iTunes Radio, do not show up in either of these playlists. Please, help me.

  • Is there a way to make YouTube download my selection completely before playing (like you can do with songs on iTunes)? I'm getting sick of start and stop during viewing!!

    Apparently I typed my entire question into the subject line without knowing what I was doing!
    I want to FULLY download selections from YouTube before attempting to view them. Just like you can select to fully download the samples of songs from iTunes. I am sick of the **** YouTube video going in and out, especially when I'm also downloading something else at the same time!
    Please tell me how to set this 'preference,' if there is a way!
    Thanks !

    Sounds like you did this on the fly.
    MM is supposed to open the Marker Panel Dialogue
    M just sets a marker
    Not sure if either are intended for on the fly during playback .
    There is also a Marker Icon on the Source Window Pane  >>

  • My husband and I are using the same computer. He has a ton of songs in iTunes that I don't want...but when I sync my iPod I get all of his songs too. Is there a way of setting up another ITunes account without having to untick all of the ton songs iTunes

    My husband has a ton of songs in iTunes that I don't want on my iPod nano. Is there a way to set up a separate account on the same computer in iTunes? Do I have to un-tick all of his songs (would take forever!! And then he would have to tick them again)....when we sync our iPods?

    No. Its not possible.
    Alternatively, create another user account in your computer. Install iTunes in that account with the library you wish to sync.

  • Purchased Songs from iTunes will no longer sync to iPhone 4s.. any help on this ?

    . All that music is in Music library on iTunes and plays well has been purchased with the same Apple id. On Windows -7, iTunes 10.5.
    . Under previous purchased icon on iTunes all music shows downloaded.
    . Unchecked music Sync from iTunes > removed all songs from the phone.
    . Tried syncing manually just 1 song and got the same error "1 item could not be synced check iTunes for explanation " and there is no message on iTunes.
    . We deleted all the Songs from iTunes and now re-adding.
    . If this does not work then I will be testing with re-creating a new Library and testing in a new user account..
    Does anyone have a better idea...?

    Hi firmflange,
    That definitely sounds frustrating! I have actually encountered this same behavior in the past, and switching out the USB to 30-pin cable was the resolution (hardware issue with the cable). Does the same behavior occur when you use a different cable?
    If so, we may need to troubleshoot the USB connection on your computer. Refer to this article:

  • Importing songs to itunes folder from dvd's

    i have a data dvd backup of all my 1400 songs from itunes folder. i tried to import it into a newly dowloaded version of itunes on my laptop with new hard drive.. it placed all the song info in the library, so i connected my ipod and directed it to this new library. it updated ipod successfully. but when i tried to play, i realized that i had only imported the song titles, etc. into itunes folder and subsequently onto ipod.. and because i directed to this "new" library, i lost all 1400 songs on the ipod.. pls help. how do i get my music from data dvd backup to library and to ipod. and do i have to import each song separately.. there are like 25 different folders on the dvd of albums, and downloads from itunes store....i just want what i had before my hard drive died. forgive me if i didn't post this right, my first time...

    Note - You don't need to copy them to the HD first,
    as btabz suggested.
    There are different ways to import music. You can copy them (the music files) onto the HD wherever you want and then import into iTunes, or have iTunes import directly off the DVD and put the files in the iTunes Music Folder. Both ways get the music into iTunes and stored on your HD. It depends if you want the music in the iTunes Music folder or not. With the way I suggested, the music is placed where you want, instead of having iTunes put it where it wants.
    Both ways will work fine though.

  • Downloaded song from iTunes, now iTunes can't find it!

    I just downloaded a song from iTunes. It was hanging on the download so I cancelled, then went to Store >> Check for Available Downloads. Song finished downloading and processing, and it displays under Purchased songs in iTunes.
    Here's the catch...now that pesky exclamation mark is displaying next to it, saying it can't find the file and would I like to look for it. I've never had this happen with a song purchased on iTunes before.
    Thoughts? I looked through my iTunes Music Library folders and didn't see anything there for the artist.
    I'm running iTunes 10.
    Thanks.

    Wound up just buying the song again.

  • My matched songs in iTunes on my computer show the artists, but some do not show up on my iPad or iPhone?

    My matched songs in iTunes on my computer show all the artists, but most artists do not show up in Music on my iPad or iPhone? I recently fixed the song titles coming back from Match update changed to Track ** by going thru every song's info (command i) and typing in the song title manually (fortunately I had a hard copy of all my song titles and artists and only had about 160 songs to do) and that fixed the problem. Now, both the song titles and artists show in my iTunes, but NOT on my ipad and iphone Music (There are a few that show up). I tried to test my "re-typing artists" into info manually on a few, but it didn't work. I also tried adding "Single" or "None" to the albumn title, but no go. Any suggestions?

  • TS2818 I have purchased songs from iTunes and when I sync with my Ipad only some are imported....then it says contact Itunes as to why your songs are not being synced.

    I have purchased many songs on Itunes and then I sync to my Ipad. Then it tells me so many songs cannot be synced.  Why? I also attach my connection and it is now saying this iphone is not connected when it is an Ipad connected to my MacBook Air.  I also think that when you have an account with Apple they should honour your email to all your music and not just your laptop as I now have to use my old laptop which is about to die so what happens then. 

    What is the exact wording of the error message?
    Were all songs purchased by the same iTunes account?
    What did iTunes say when you contacted them?

    If you are now in the US then you can only use the US store, so you should update the address on your account
    Changing country : Change the country of your iTunes Store, App Store, iBooks Store, and Mac App Store account.
    Had you copied the songs over to your computer's iTunes library, do they show in the Music section on it ? You can copy purchases that you still have on your iPad over to your computer's iTunes library via the File > Devices > Transfer Purchases menu option

  • I started downloading a song from iTunes and then stopped it in the middle of the download cause it froze, but when I tried to redownload it, iTunes said the song was already downloaded. But it does not show up in my music library on my phone. Help?

    I bought a song on iTunes and it started downloading but then about half way through it seemed to stop downloading so I pressed the square stop button in he middle of the downloading circle so that I could try and restart the download. But when I went back to iTunes, instead of having the cloud and the arrow to let me download the song from the cloud next to it, it said "Play" as if I had already downloaded the song. So I went back to my music library to try and find the song but it's not there and iTunes isn't letting me download it cause it says I already have it. Please help.

  • I've purchased songs thru iTunes Store and they will not sync to my iPhone 5.  They show up as if they are in the cloud but wont download to my iPhone, Why?

    So some of my purchased songs from iTunes are not syncing to my iPhone.  Is there a setting or format issue?  If so, how do I change it?  The songs show up on my iPhone as if they synced, but do not play.  There is an icon to the right saying it needs to be downloaded from iCloud and when I click it, it wont download.

  • Bought 5 new songs on itunes. ipod syncs but songs do not show up on any playlist

    Bought 5 new songs on itunes . ipod syncs but the new songs don't show up on the play list that is on the ipod . the do appear on itunes library. what am i doing wrong ?

    Was the iPod previous synced to another iTunes library/computer?
    Have you successfully synced from this iTunes library/computer before?
    If so have you done anything like update iTunes on the computer since it last successfully synced?
    Do the songs play in iTunes?          
    Does any media now sync to the iPod?
    Do you have the right boxes checked to sync?
    iTunes: Syncing media content to iOS devices and iPod       
    Try syncing using the manual method

    Do you have any Restrictions (Settings>General>Restrictions) set that would prevent syncing those songs? (iTunes purchases only)
