I have several albums in my library that do not show the album artwork.  It states it is not available in the iTunes store.  In the past I could copy and past album artwork.

I have Windows 7 on my laptop and the latest version of iTunes.  I have several albums in my library that do not show the album artwork.  iTunes states that it is not available, even though the album is available on iTunes.  In the past, I could copy album artwork and then paste it on my albums in iTunes.  In the lates version of iTunes, a past option does not seem to be available.

JPGronek,
There are 3 ways to get custom art into the Artwork box:
copy/paste
drag-n-drop
Add from a file location.
In various iTunes releases, it is common that one of the the three is broken.  Try one of the others.

    I loaded iTunes on a new laptop. I copied and pasted my albums to a 4G stick and down loaded them to the new laptop. Placing them in, Libraries – Music – iTunes and than in Itunes used File – add file to library. So far so good. For what ever reason one of the CDs would not load onto the stick. I got the orginal CD and loaded directly to Itunes. Now when I look in  Libraries – Music – iTunes it’s not there but it is in and plays in iTunes. What should I have done or should I be doing? Thanks.

    It's not a unique situation - happens all the time, smaller hard drives getting filled up.
    It's also easy to fix. I just moved my itunes content to a bigger hard drive.
    First I made a backup of the itunes database file - iTunes Library.itl. Just in case anything went wrong.
    Nothing did go wrong, but I'd have it in case anything DID go wrong. That file holds ratings, playcounts, Date Added, and other metadata.
    Second, in itunes change the preferences > advanced tab to tell itunes to put everything on G:
    Set the itunes folder location to something like G:Media or G:iTunes
    This will affect all FUTURE additions to itunes and not do anything to the existing locations.
    Make sure the checkbox for "Keep itunes organized" is NOT checked. I also left the "Copy files when adding" unchecked.
    Third, to move all the files to G: without itunes losing the paths, run the File > Library > Organize > Consolidate command. This will need to run a while, so be patient as it copies all the files to the new G: location. This does NOT delete the originals. You will have to do that.
    Fourth, make sure everything in itunes is OK and you can play stuff in your library. If you're really cautious you can run a script to check for missing/dead tracks.

  • I have a second generation nano. I have several podcasts in my library that will not sync to the nano.  These podcasts all have a half cirlce icon to the left of the name in my itunes library.  Whats up?

    I have a second generation Nano.  I have several podcasts in my itunes library that will not sync to the device.  These podcasts all have a half circle icon that appears to the left of the title.  Whats up?

    Well I could do that but that kinda defeats the purpose of paying $600 bucks for this piece of **** that I'm supposed to be able to dump 32 gigs (well u know what I mean) of music on and manage automatically the through this supposedly wonderful piece of software that's supposed to do most of that for you. Okay I get that computers are only as smart as the people using them... Which apparently is not that smart in this case... But ya thanks for the advice that my two year old daughter could have given me. Anyone else?

  • I attempted to purchase u2's new album - songs of innocence at the itunes store. The icon says "purchased" yet I am quite sure I have not purchased it. There are no songs in my library nor is there any record of the purchase in the account history.

    Everyone was given the album. It was a gift from U2 and Apple. You can go to purchases and download it to your device.

  • HT4914 I have several songs in my ITunes library that show as ineligible to be uploaded to ICloud, even though most of them were purchased through the ITunes Store. Has anyone else experienced this and figured out why?

    I have several songs in my ITunes library that show as ineligible to be uploaded to ICloud via Match, even though most of them were purchased through the ITunes Store. Has anyone else experienced this and figured out why?

    I had the exact same issue!! Seriously p*ssed me off when I checked out my ITunes purchased items (via my computer) and noticed that most of the additional tracks listed on my IPhone playlist was listed there too. However, I never authorized any purchases!!  (I have actually written Apple Support asking for a full refund of all tracks listed on my purchased list)
    Be careful when you swipe your finger to the left/right on those "additional" tracks on your IPhone playlist... I'm pretty sure that the cloud symbol is an option to download or automatically buy those tracks.
    Solution for the problem:
    1 - go to your IPhone settings
    2 - choose "iTunes & App Store"
    3 - go to "Show All" & "Music"
    4 - turn off "Music" by moving the bar to the left (it should be a white color once you turn it off)
    Should solve your problem :~)

  • Unable to copy and paste a phote from my photo library to another photo album

    iphoto 6.0.6 unable to copy and paste a photo from my main library album to another photo album.  why does the copy and paste function not work for these albums.  I have tried to drag it and drop it into the album, but nothing works.  it this a bug?  When I created the album several years ago, I was able to copy and paste photos into it, but now when I try to copy and paste nothing happens.  Again I ask, is this a bug?

  • "Photos have been found in iPhoto library that were not imported" .. There's no Import Folder to delete

    Please read the entire post prior to giving a response.
    Our 2011 MBP has had this problem for a while.  15 photos have been found in iPhoto library that were not imported (twice .. every time).  I've seen several posts that all have the same answer .. find the import folder in iPhoto, remove it and all will be fine with the world.  Some say, it's importing folder, some say auto import folder, but all say it's a folder.  Problem is, there is no such folder.  I've looked throughout the computer .. applications, iPhoto, right click to show package contents, searched and searched .. nada.  NO such folder exists.  There are quite a number of files labeled "ImportPanels.nib" and "SelectiveImport.nib" all under "Other".  There are also a number of import.tiff files with various names under "Preview".  But NO folder with IMPORT in the name.
    So, how do I get rid of the never ending 15 photos have been found in iPhoto library that were not imported?  Help that doesn't repeat what's already been noted above in other posts would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.
    (BTW .. it has Mavericks installed and everything is currently updated.)

    I have no idea where you are looking.  I have nothing even similar to that.  When I go to Finder and click on Applications and then right click iPhoto (not iPhoto Library .. I have nothing with that name) and click on Show Package Contents, I have just one folder "Contents".  That opens to _CodeSignature, _MASReceipt, Frameworks, Library, MacOS, Plugins, Recurces and XPCServices .. no other folder exist.
    (I have show .. iMovie, iMovie 9.0.9, iPhoto, iTunes, iWork '09, Keynote, etc ..  No iPhoto Library Folder is listed.)
    If I go to Launchpad and right click the iPhoto icon, it opens iPhoto.  You say not the application, but I have no idea were else to find this other than Finder which is only the iPhoto application and the icon in Launchpad and the Dock.
    When I click the Library folder, the only folder is Loginterms which opens to iCloud Photos.
    There isn't any folder names Auto Import or anything close.  Searches don't help as they only find files, not folder names.
    In your picture, it shows iPhoto Library as the header .. mine never shows that, it's always the folder name.
    Where is the iPhoto Library Package?

  • The control click and external mouse right click no longer works when copying and pasting album art within itunes. Ex. Hit get info for one song to paste to the rest, copying the artwork wont work when it used to.

    You can try requesting that it be added to the US store, but ultimately it's the record company that will have to grant Apple a license to sell it there : http://www.apple.com/feedback/itunes.html
    Is it available on any other music purchase download sites that you have access to ?

    I really want to purchase music albums from iTunes store. but the payment option is so painful. I have a SBI ATM *** Debit Card. So please do something on Indian store payment option. At-least create a alternative payment, like Internet Banking...

    We are fellow users here on these user-to-user forums, you're not talking to iTunes Support nor Apple.
    Do you have a credit card, or a different debit card that you could try (some are apparently still accepted in India) ?

  • Hey everyone! i have a external hardrive i keep my itunes library of songs on and it wont sync with my ipod touch inless i copy and paste it into my ipod device when thats conected. i dont want all the songs on there only checked ones. help plz!!

    im having trouble with syncing my ipod touch with my itunes library that i keep on a external hardrive. when i plug up my external hardrive that has all my songs on it, it doesn't sync to my ipod correctly. i have to copy and paste the songs to my ipod device when its connected. i dont want all the songs on there and i want to be able to manually control whats on my ipod. and id like to take some songs off of the ipod also but i want them still in my itunes library though. i usually check the songs i want on the ipod but it isnt working that way maybe because its a external hardrive?? i never had a problem with past ipods with my library on itunes but i ran out of space on my computer and had to transfer all of the songs to my external hardrive. please someone help me!! i thought it would be simple! but it isnt the case! i plug up my hardrive then my ipod, i press sync and nothing gets transfered unless i copy and paste them to the ipod. even though it says ipod syncing in progress! this is really confusing! please help me!! sorry if this is jumbled up and confusing..

    Correct. When you update via iTunes all synced media that is not in your iTunes library will be lost.
    As IO said before:
    You can redownload most iTunes pruchases by:
    Downloading past purchases from the App Store, iBookstore, and iTunes Store
    I do not think it included audio books.

    You can only join tracks when importing from a CD and likewise, the Options button is also only visible when importing from CD.
    When the CD is in the drive and showing in iTunes, you will see Options, CD Info and Import CD choices. If you select Options, the Join CD Tracks option only appears when you have two or more adjacent tracks selected. See the screenshots below:

  • HT1349 I have suddenly lost the whole of my iTunes library, with the exception of music that I have bought and downloaded from iTunes Store.  It was all there yesterday and I haven't altered anything, as far as I know!

    I have suddenly lost the whole of my iTunes library, with the exception of music that I have bought and downloaded from iTunes Store.  It was all there yesterday and I haven't altered anything, as far as I know!  I hope it's something quite simple?
    Apologies, but none of the communities listed seems to fit this question - so I'm taking pot luck!

    For music that you've purchased from Apple that are on your iPhone you should be able to copy to your computer's iTunes via File > Transfer Purchases. Also if you are in the US then you should be able to re-download past music purchases for free : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2519
    For your own music that you've copied, then if you haven't got a backup on, for example, external drives or CDs/DVDs then you could see if any of the utilities mentioned in this old post still exist and work
