HT1923 I just installed itunes on my new Asus laptop computer (Windows 8).  Cannot find itunes now.

I've looked in program files but I do not see itunes anywhere.  This is my first time having Windows 8.

I have it now that I've installed itunes again.  Having some trouble trying to import my music library from external hard drive now.  I only see "add file to library" but it won't allow me to add folders.  I have numerous folders in my music folder on external hard drive.  I was able to add all of them when to itunes in another windows computer when itunes was in a previous version.  Now I see no way to add folders.

  • I recently installed iTunes on my new HP laptop computer, authorized it according to the instructions, but now can't get past a screen that tells me that I need to authorize the computer.  I purchased an album and it's in the library, but it won't sync.

  • How to point Itunes to a new location where music is stored Cannot locate music now it is on an external drive PLEASE HELP!!!!

    Background Info
    i have recently got rid of my Windows machine an am now using my MacBook as my main machine  
    On the old windows Desktop   i had my music set up as follows  
    Itunes libary information:
    C:\Documents and settings\Lee Robinson\My Documents\My Music\
    all of the Music files were stored on the PC as follows  
    G:\Music\My Music
    Before i got rid of the machine i backed up all of my music and my iTunes libary files as follows to a External USB Harddrive that is now connected to my mac
    Music Located @
    /Volumes/AFRO-PORT/My Music
    the iTunes Libary is located at the following  
    /Volumes/AFRO-PORT/My Music/iTunes
    what i then did was to copy  my itunes libary files at  /Volumes/AFRO-PORT/My Music/iTunes  to my local Mac machine .....
    /Users/Afroboy/Music
    Problem
    Now when i fire up Itunes, i have all my playlists, ratings abum art etc...... but the problem i have is that itunes cannot locate any of the files. I guess that this is because my entire libary is still pointing to
    G:\Music\My Music -  as on my old windows PC
    How do i tell itunes that this is no longer where i keep my music and for the actual MP3 files itself it needs to look at the following path
    /Volumes/AFRO-PORT/My Music
    ... all file structures within these 2 file directories remain the same  
    I would really appreciate the heklp-  my music collection is quite big and i dont want to loose any of the work i have done building it up over the past 5 years  
    Cheers
    LR

    Hi  - thanks for the response  
    yes thats right, i have always kept my itunes folder and the directory containing all of my actual media seperate  
    all of the Music files were stored on the PC as follows:  
    G:\Music\My Music
    Itunes libary information:
    C:\Documents and settings\Lee Robinson\My Documents\My Music\
    Your quite right, doing the above method that i have, turns it really messy when you  when you try to move your entire collection. i saw this article earlier today 
    iTunes: How to move your music to a new computer - http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4527
    ..........wish i followed it before hand  
    The only Semi work arond i have found is to go to File> Add libary.... and brows to what is now my new external drive with all my music on  /Volumes/AFRO-PORT/My Music/ .
    Once the import was complete it effectivly dupicated my entire libary -  So i then went to
    File > Display Duplicates to show duplicate items, sorted by date and removed all the duplicate items  
    .... So far seems to have worked ok however i have lost my play lists, their all on my iPod anyway so all seems fine now  
    As you said iTunes wants you to do thinngs in a certian way and it certianly makes you pay if you dont. So now my question is, so i dont have this problem in the future..... do i
    A) Manually move all of my Music files to my iTunes Liabry and have everything in one folder (If i move manually where do i need to copy all my files to?)
    B) Start from Scratch and let iTunes do it, so i have everything on the external disk

  • Trying to update my iTunes.....keeps telling me it cannot find iTunes.msi

    I have iTunes 11.1.3.8 and when I try update iTunes it is looking for iTunes.msi and can't find the file. I have searched around is there something I can do to fix this without reloading windows. I am also concerned about  loosing any information if I install on a new load of windows. How can I ensure I don't wipe a device. The iPods used to get wiped when connected to a new computer. Do the iPads and iPhones get wiped when connected to a new computer.i have iPad 4 iPad Air and iPhone thanks for any help

    Hello, KokoMerlin. 
    Thank you for visiting Apple Support Communities. 
    I would recommend doing a complete uninstall and new install of iTunes as outlined in the steps below.  Uninstalling iTunes on your computer will not alter your iTunes library.
    Removing and reinstalling iTunes and other software components for Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8
    http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1923
    Since you are receiving an error that a .msi file can not be located, you will need to process the steps in the article below for any component that gives you this error during the uninstall process. 
    "The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable" alert appears when you remove Apple software in Windows

  • I just tried updating ITunes to the new version and it will not completely download and now I get an error message of MSVCR80

    I just tried updating ITunes to the new version and it will not completely download and now I get an error message of MSVCR80. Is there a problem with the new iTunes version?
    Now ITunes won't open.Help!!!

    Go to Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs (Win XP) or Programs and Features(Later)
    Remove all of these items in the following order:
    iTunes
    Apple Software Update
    Apple Mobile Device Support
    Bonjour
    Apple Application Support
    Reboot, download iTunes, then reinstall, either using an account with administrative rights, or right-clicking the downloaded installer and selecting Run as Administrator.
    See also HT1925: Removing and Reinstalling iTunes for Windows XP or HT1923: Removing and reinstalling iTunes for Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8
    Should you get the error iTunes.exe - Entry Point Not Found after the above reinstall then copy QTMovieWin.dll from:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Apple\Apple Application Support
    and paste into:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\iTunes
    The above paths would be for a 64-bit machine. Hopefully the same fix with the " (x86)" omitted would work on 32-bit systems with the same error.

  • Why I can not install the iTunes to my new 64bit laptop??? I have never had this kind of problem before on my 32 bit old laptop...

    I would like to get a help... I can not install the iTunes to my new (64bit) laptop... Why??? The installation stops somewhere after a few minute, looks like trying to install but can not go through until the end. I had my old (32bit) laptop and i have never had any problem with the installations... My new laptop is Asus (64bit), and the operating system just upgraded from Win8 to Win8.1....

    Hello rafaelfromweymouth
    Start with the first article and clear out any files in the Temp folder. You may need to remove iTunes and its related software and finally make sure that you have the 64-bit version of iTunes downloaded to install.

  • I just installed iLife on my new Imac version 10.8.2 and now I can't open my iPhoto app.  It says that I Photo is damaged or incomplete.  What do I do to restore my iPhoto and pictures!

    I just installed iLife on my new iMac 10.8.2 version and now I can't open my iPhoto app.  It says it is damaged or incomplete.  What can I do to get it back along with all of my picutures?  I was told by an Apple employee at my one to one training that it was OK to install iLife to get the iDVD that I wanted. Help!

    I have installed iLife a few times and because of photostream, the version on the disc must be updated.  Software update usually takes care of it.  It sounds like you installed an old version over a new version.  I've not tried that.
    You have a late 2012 machine, if you open the Mac app store from the dock, you should be able to go to the purchased tab and download/install the right version of iphoto.  Honestly, you should not have used that disc on this new of mac or at least only installed iDVD & iWeb but not garageband, iphoto, and iMovie.
    If the Mac App Store shows iphoto as installed already, drag the app from your applications folder to the trash and reinstall it again from the Mac App Store.  That is the version you need.  You may find garageband and imovie have similar problems.
    good luck.
    PS.  your photos are in your photo folder in your home folder.  don't touch those, I'm talking about the app "iphoto" in the applications folder.

  • I just installed Firefox on a new HP 600-1120 with Windows 7 and it is only running in "safe" mode. Why? How do I get it to run in "regular" mode? How does "safe" mode differ?

    > So now my question is, how can i fix this problem?
    Use the Toshiba recovery disk or the Toshiba HDD recovery option.
    If you dont have the Toshiba Recovery disk try the HDD recovery:
    http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/HTD1303440001R01.htm
    This works only if the recovery image files from Toshiba are still on the HDD:
    If you installed the system using another disk as Toshiba recovery disk, this recovery option will not work.

  • Why isn't itunes 11.1.3 installing on my new VAIO laptop with windows 8.1 (64 bit)?

    I am trying to install itunes on my new VAIO laptop 64 bit with Windows 8.1 operating system. At the end of the installation, as soon as itunes is trying to open, an error message comes up, saying "an error has caused the program to stop running." I tried the compatibility troubleshoot, it says "incompatible program". Does that mean, even latest version of itunes can not run on windows 8.1? If there is any solution, please advise. By the way, I have tried to run it on compatibility mode for windows 7 , windows vista etc, no luck.  Thank you.

  • Hi there, I have installed iTune on my new Toshiba laptop which runs on Win 8.  I can update itune on Toshiba laptop, sync but the iphone Apps still showing app to be updated.  Restarted both Itune

    Hi there, I have installed iTune on my new Toshiba laptop which runs on Win 8.  I can update itune on Toshiba laptop, sync but the iphone Apps still showing app to be updated.  Restarted both Itune and iphone....reset phone backup....to no avail.....HELP!

    I have removed now all bloatware from laptop, CCleaner run and some more stuff: installed Libre Office, Free Avast, Mozilla Firefox - Spotify was preinstalled. And now this is even better - really simple and fast.
    I also removed Ethernet completely, as I don't want to be locked at one place. It's not cool to use laptop on divan sofa. So tired after hour of sitting in uncool position. Wifi speed loss is almost 50%. 95 Mbps I get from 100 Mbps at Ethernet and on Wifi in laptop I get at max 50 Mbps. It's only for end this year this way, then I will slow down my connection anyway as for one person and laptop/smartphone it's way too much of speed for 40 €. With 27€ I can get the same 10M/10M and it will be more than enough. Now I have 100M/10M.
    I'm also considering about 50M/10M option for 32.90 €, but I will see what I do. I download now test file 10GB and it loads 30-40 Mbps and sometimes even as fast as 50 Mbps. It depends on server also, but ebven on Google, which works on Ethernet at 95 Mbps, it is on Wifi nothing more than 51 Mbps.
    It's also 10GB of 1,100 Offlined tracks, I tested it now. So on trips 32GB card should be enough for my phone. I'm going to one soon :)

  • I have just installed PE13 on a new Mac. When I try to open photos it crashes. Help!

    I have just installed PE13 on a new Mac. When I try to open photos it crashes. Help please.

    If you haven't already done so, then try closing the Message app via the taskbar and see if it works when you re-open the app : from the iPad's home screen double-click the home button to bring up the taskbar, then press and hold any of the apps on the taskbar for a couple of seconds or so until they start shaking, then press the '-' in the top left of the Message app to close it, and touch any part of the screen above the taskbar so as to stop the shaking and close the taskbar.
    If that doesn't work then try a reset : press and hold both the sleep and home buttons for about 10 to 15 seconds (ignore the red slider), after which the Apple logo should appear - you won't lose any content, it's the iPad equivalent of a reboot.

    Hello RogerfromCoulsdon,
    In order to resolve this issue where you get the popup message to connect to iTunes to use push notifications, please reset your network settings.
    Reset iPhone settings. Go to Settings > General > Reset, then choose an option:
    Reset Network Settings:  When you reset network settings, previously used networks and VPN settings that weren’t installed by a configuration profile are removed. (To remove VPN settings installed by a configuration profile, go to Settings > General > Profile, select the profile, then tap Remove. This also removes other settings or accounts provided by the profile.) Wi-Fi is turned off and then back on, disconnecting you from any network you’re on. The Wi-Fi and “Ask to Join Networks” settings remain turned on.
