  • Ut 4000 photos in my iphotos; iPhoto cannot import your photos because there is not enough free space on the volume containing your iPhoto library.

    I keep getting the following error message despite only having about 4000 pics in my iphotos; iPhoto cannot import your photos because there is not enough free space on the volume containing your iPhoto library. I have tried moving my iphotos library to an external Hard Drive and starting a new library but still it will not allow any more to be loaded.

    What version of iPhoto?
    try Back up your iPhoto library, Depress and hold the option (alt) and command keys and launch iPhoto - rebuild your iPhoto library database

  • Why am i getting this warning? iPhoto cannot import your photos because there is not enough free space on the volume containing your iPhoto library.

    I can no longer import photos from my PC because I get this message:  iPhoto cannot import your photos because there is not enough free space on the volume containing your iPhoto library.  How can I fix this problem?

    Option 1
    Back Up and try rebuild the library: hold down the command and option (or alt) keys while launching iPhoto. Use the resulting dialogue to rebuild. Choose to Rebuild iPhoto Library Database from automatic backup.
    If that fails:
    Option 2
    Download iPhoto Library Manager and use its rebuild function. This will create a new library based on data in the albumdata.xml file. Not everything will be brought over - no slideshows, books or calendars, for instance - but it should get all your albums and keywords back.
    Because this process creates an entirely new library and leaves your old one untouched, it is non-destructive, and if you're not happy with the results you can simply return to your old one. .

    I get the message 'your startup disc us full' at random time points. I'm trying to import photos to iPhoto and get'iPhoto cannot import your photos because there is not enough free space on the volume containing your iPhoto library'. This is a new Macbook Pro and all my files were transferred from my old Macbook.

    What size internal drive do you have and how much of it is used?

  • I have IPhoto version 9.5.1. I cannot export pictures, the following message appears: "iPhoto cannot import your photos because there is not enough free space on the volume containing your iPhoto library." What am I suppose to do? I have a Mac mini.

    I have IPhoto version 9.5.1. I cannot export pictures since the following message appears: "iPhoto cannot import your photos because there is not enough free space on the volume containing your iPhoto library." What am I suppose to do? I have a Mac mini which properly used can perform any reasonable task, the problem is I do not know what to do.
    Any help will be appreciated.

    Hmm... that was labelled:
    As a Test:
    In bold and all
    Try repair the main Library:
    Option 1
    Back Up and try rebuild the library: hold down the command and option (or alt) keys while launching iPhoto. Use the resulting dialogue to rebuild. Choose to Repair Database. If that doesn't help, then try again, this time using Rebuild Database.
    If that fails:
    Option 2
    Download iPhoto Library Manager and use its rebuild function. (In early versions of Library Manager it's the File -> Rebuild command. In later versions it's under the Library menu.)
    This will create an entirely new library. It will then copy (or try to) your photos and all the associated metadata and versions to this new Library, and arrange it as close as it can to what you had in the damaged Library. It does this based on information it finds in the iPhoto sharing mechanism - but that means that things not shared won't be there, so no slideshows, books or calendars, for instance - but it should get all your events, albums and keywords, faces and places back.
    Because this process creates an entirely new library and leaves your old one untouched, it is non-destructive, and if you're not happy with the results you can simply return to your old one.

  • HT2635 What does this mean? "I Photo cannot import your photos because there is not enough free space on the volume containing your I photo library"

    I cannot import my pictures and movies from a DVD - What does this mean when I get a computer message on my Mac -
    "I photo cannot import your photos because there is not enough free space on the volume containing your I photo library"

    It means pretty much what it says - your HD is full.
    This can arise because your HD is full - how big is your HD? How much free space on it?
    Or it can be a mis-report due to to other issues.

  • When I am importing photos from DVD rom, iPhoto shows " not enough free space on the volume containing your iPhoto library", but i have over 200G free in hard drive? how do i fix it?

    Mac Pro Book
    Mac OS X 10.7.5
    iPhoto 11 9.4.2
    importing photos into iphoto, shows "Photo cannot import your photos because there is not enough free space on the volume containing your iPhoto library."
    tried creat new library, same thing.
    currently only has 2,500 photos in iPhoto
    Importing about 500 photos, but cant do it due to the message showed above.
    Who knows how to fix it?

    How much free space do you have on your hard drive?  Try the following:
    1 - delete the iPhoto preference file, com.apple.iPhoto.plist, that resides in your
         User/Home/Library/ Preferences folder.
    2 - delete iPhoto's cache file, Cache.db, that is located in your
    User/Home/Library/Caches/com.apple.iPhoto folder (Snow Leopard and Earlier).
    or with Mt. Lion from the User/Library/Containers/com.apple.iPhoto/
    Data/Library/Caches/com.apple.iPhoto folder
    3 - launch iPhoto and try again.
    NOTE: If you're moved your library from its default location in your Home/Pictures folder you will have to point iPhoto to its new location when you next open iPhoto by holding down the Option key when launching iPhoto.  You'll also have to reset the iPhoto's various preferences.
    NOTE 2:  In Lion and Mountain Lion the Library folder is now invisible. To make it permanently visible enter the following in the Terminal application window: chflags nohidden ~/Library and hit the Enter button - 10.7: Un-hide the User Library folder.

  • Had to reinstall my operating system, so basically i got a new computer...reinstalled itunes and now my iphone 4 will not sync. it connects, then backs up then starts sync and says "cannot connect because there is not enough free space on the phone."

    There is enough spacde on my phone. It is the exact same itunes library because i saved all my music before i reinstalled windows. So i just put all the music back onto itunes. It asked me if i wanted to erase and sync because it was a "new computer" and i said yes because it is all the same music so it should just re sync all the same stuff. But it wont do it. It just keeps saying there is not enough space on the phone, and my phone has 5 GB left on it.

    Maybe iTunes is calculating it like this:
    5 GB left, but if you sync your music (from the new PC) to it it will be full. It's maybe syncing the new content and then deleting the old music.
    Try this: Deselect "Music-Syncing" and let him delete the music from your iPhone. (the other stuff, photos, cal, contacts should stay untoucht if you don't deselect it) After iTunes deleted the music from your iPhone (by letting the other stuff untouched) try to reselect "Music-Syncing" and iTunes will sync your music to your iPhone.

  • The media on this iPhone cannot be backed up because there is not enough free space on this computer to hold all of the backed up files

    I am trying to update my software to v 5.0. I have over 1TB available on my external drive, where my itunes folder is stored, but itunes is trying to backup to my system folder (even though I have set it to go to my external HD). What am I missing? 

    I had this problem too, but found a fairly easy fix, at least on windows 7.
    A little background first though, I have my OS(win7-64bit) installed on a 40GB SSD, and then everything else including my program files and user folders are on a second, 3TB hard drive.  I'm using symbolic links to make this all work well, cause windows has a hard time when it doesn't see the program files and users directory on its install drive, even when you change the registery settings for them.  So iTunes incorrectly thought it was trying to backup to my SSD drive due to the symbolic links, when in reality it was trying to back up to my 3TB drive.
    The fix is to change the registry settings for the "AppData" folder that itunes backs up into.  In windows 7 it is quite simple to do.  You don't even have to directly touch the registry.  The steps are as follows (for Win7):
    1. Navigate to your AppLocal folder.  To do this simply open a folder, and type in "applocal" in the location bar and hit enter.
    2. There will be three folders.  Do the following for all three folders(Local, LocalLow, and Roaming):
         1. Right-click and select properties
         2. Select the "Locations" tab on the uppper left of the window.
         3. Change the location to where you have more disk space.  For me it was as simple as just changing the "C:\" portion to "D:\".
         4. Click apply.  At this point windows will ask you if you want it to copy the data already in the App folder to the new location.  If the data isn't already in the new folder you selected, then say yes, or many programs won't work correctly.  If, like me, you are using symbolic links and just selected the folder that the orginal pointed to anyway, then you can hit no.
         5. If windows had to copy anything, wait for the copy to finish.
    3.  Restart iTunes if it is still open.
    4.  Try again to upgrade and it should now backup without complaints.

  • "no photos were copied to the ipod because there is not enough free space"

    i've been trying to download photos on my nano for weeks and i always receive this message :
    "no photos were copied to the ipod because there is not enough free space on the ipod to hold your photos and albums."
    the weird thing is that there IS free space; i actually made some (there are 18 available MB right now on my nano). and the folder containing the photos i am trying to download is far from 18 MB. but i still get the same message.
    anyone knows what i could do?? thanks!!

    R U sure you have enough space? Double check to make sure you are only trying to upload the pictures you want on your ipod not all the pictures on your computer (more than 18 MB).

  • Lost my contacts and calendar since update and statesThe iPhone cannot be synced because there is not enough free space to hold all of the items in the iTunes library (additional 1 MB required).e

    I lost my contacts and calendar, and photos since the iOS update and and it states that my iPhone cannot be synced because there is not enough free space to hold all of the items in the iTunes library (additional 1 MB required).   Also it shows that I am over capacity on my Capacity ruler but how do I unload some of that stuff so that I can increase my capacity and perhaps get this synching to work again. 
    So frustrating!!

    On your iPhone go to settings>general>about and next to "Available" if you dont have much space then you will need to delete stuff on the phone to make room to take photos by deleting stuff on the phone.
    In terms of syncing change what you are syncing and decide what you would really want and not want on your phone which would make what is syncing to the phone smaller.

  • Cannot sync because there is not enough free space to hold all of the items in the iTunes library

    On my last attempt to sync my iPod Touch with my laptop I got the following message:
    The iPod "*******" cannot be synced because there is not enough free space to hold all of the items in the iTunes library (additional 3.18 GB required) 
    My iPod is the basic 8 GB version with 6.8 GB capacity.    I have cleard most of my photos off the iPod.   I have 536 MB available. 
    How do I get the iPod to sync?

    I found it!   There is a note in the help pages.   Basically turn off all sync options in iTunes.  Apply that change.   Then go back and turn sync's back on.  WARNING..   Take note of how your sync's are set up before you turn them off.

  • The iPad cannot be synced because there is not enough free space to hold all of the items in the iTunes library (additional 2.53 GB required).

    I purchased some children's books from iTunes on my Mac computer and then tried to sync to my iPad and received the note that " The iPad cannot be synced because there is not enough free space to hold all of the items in the iTunes library (additional 2.53 GB required)."
    I do not know what steps to take to be able to free up space so I can sync these e-books to my iPad.  I do not know how to find the iTunes library on the iPad to identify what I would need to delete.
    Thanks for your guidance.

    How much space is your Other using? You may be able to reduce.
    How Do I Get Rid Of The “Other” Data Stored On My iPad Or iPhone?
    http://tinyurl.com/85w6xwn
    With an iOS device, the “Other” space in iTunes is used to store things like documents, settings, caches, and a few other important items. If you sync lots of documents to apps like GoodReader, DropCopy, or anything else that reads external files, your storage use can skyrocket. With iOS 5, you can see exactly which applications are taking up the most space. Just head to Settings > General > Usage, and tap the button labeled Show All Apps. The storage section will show you the app and how much storage space it is taking up. Tap on the app name to get a description of the additional storage space being used by the app’s documents and data. You can remove the storage-hogging application and all of its data directly from this screen, or manually remove the data by opening the app. Some applications, especially those designed by Apple, will allow you to remove stored data by swiping from left to right on the item to reveal a Delete button.
