Music folder Erased after delete any song.

I use a MacBook Pro with Mac OS Snow Leopard 10.6.8, I always used a External HD to hold my iTunes files. But now, I dont know if this is because of iTunes 11, I use the organized files option checked and the iTunes organized it in artist names subfolder. This is ok.
But, when I try to edit a album name or delete any song and select DELETE FILE instead of KEEP FILE, the MUSIC folder disappear from ITUNES MUSIC folder.
Why is it happening? I try to copy any times and restart MACBOOK and the HD itself but it doesnt work.
I am using a External HD in Ethernet cable (crossover). The HD is a LACIE NETWORK SPACE 4 Tb.
Please I need some help.
Thank you!

Therefore, is there a way to mass delete all of these song names in iTunes?
Yes, you can simply highlight all the songs with the exclamation point at once and then RIGHT CLICK and choose DELETE. This will remove them from the iTunes list all at once.
(then I can copy and paste the actual files into the "Automatically Add to iTunes" folder and the path to the file should work? (THEORETICALLY OF COURSE)
Yes
What would cause such a random error?
Either the patch was disconnected somehow during the upgrade OR user changed the music's location (which in this case you did not).

  • Since updating to IOS 7.1.2 I can't delete any song from my iphone

    Since updating to IOS 7.1.2 I can't delete any song from my iphone (except 1 by 1). I've tried all the options in itunes (uncheck and manage my music manually) and in the phone directly with Settings/General/Usage and delete. Nothing works....

    First off, you might describe what happens when you try and answer a call. Then, let us know what user troubleshooting you have tried.

  • Music streaming stops after a few songs

    I've read posts here on similar Home Sharing issues, here's mine. My iTunes library is on a networked HD, while iTunes itself is on a Windows laptop. The laptop and ATV are connected to the network wirelessly. The ATV usually finds my library, but when streaming music it stops after a couple songs. The only option is to then back out to the menus and reconnect (then, again, it'll play a couple songs and stop). If I connect both the laptop and ATV via ethernet and take it off wireless, will that help? Any other suggestions?

    I am hardwired to my network. After an hour or so my ATV Gen 2 stops streaming from my Imac Itunes? Under my computers on the ATV the library disappeared. If I down power the ATV it reappears and will eventually stop streaming and disappears again. I have home sharing turned on and have tried other things people have said on discussions. I have the firewall turned off, I have opened the necessary ports on my router ( D-Link DIR 825), turned off sleep mode on ATV and Imac, turned off screen savers on Imac. I can't understand why it would stop if it can connect and stay connected. It is as if there is something timing out.

  • Why can't I delete any songs from my library??

    I saw this question was posted but no one had an answer even though it was marked as "solved".
    I can't delete any songs from my library whether or not they are starred. None of the songs are on my playlists. When I right click on a song, the delete option is in gray so I can't select it. It's driving me crazy! Please help me! :catmad:

    That fixed it. I've had this problem for MONTHS and I couldn't find a work around. This comment made me finally think to just delete the songs on the playlists and that FINALLY removed them from my library. Thanks so much for the heads up!

  • How do I remove song files from my iTunes Music Folder that are deleted?

    Hi,
    When I deleted unwanted songs from my iTunes Library I selected the option to Keep Files instead of Moving Song to the Recycle Bin. As a result I've now got a load of unwanted music files clogging up my music folders.
    So how can I identify music files that are in my iTunes Music Folders but have been deleted from the iTunes Library and then remove them from my hard drive?
    Cheers,
    Andy.

    Here's a thought, have you added any new items to your library recently?
    If you add your iTunes music folder to your library, anything not already in your library will be added.
    Now go to your library view and make sure you have the date added column visible. (Right click in the header row to get a list of columns that can be selcted).
    Now sort by date added and everying you just added will be together and can be easily identified for deletion.
    Note this only applies if files are in the iTunes Music folder, files in other places have to be deleted in Windows Explorer.
    PS iT is usually a good idea to make a copy of iTunes Library.itl before experimenting. Copy it from your iTunes folder to somewhere else.

  • Podcasts Still in Folder Even After Deleting

    Hi, I'm having a problem with itunes retaining podcasts, even after I delete them. I always click the option "Move to Recycle Bin," but a recent cruise through my itunes folder under My Music revealed that many of the supposedly deleted podcasts are still there. This has happened several times, and it gets to the point where I run out of hard drive space if I don't go to the folder and delete the old podcasts. I understand that this should only happen if I click on "Keep Files," so why is this happening even though I tell it to delete the episodes? It seems to be just random ones, too, with no rhyme or reason to whether it decides to keep an episode I told it to delete or not. Any ideas or suggestions? Thanks.

    "Move to Recycle Bin" doesn't work if the file is active; that is, if you have just finished listening to it and it is still the active track in iTunes with the little speaker icon next to it. Start to play something else, then go back and delete it. That's probably what's happening.
    A less likely reason is that you had moved the podcast file from where iTunes deposited it. ITunes can only erase files that are in the +iTunes Music+ folder to begin with. So if you downloaded the file in iTunes the moved it, or (this just occured to me) got the file from some other means and imported it to iTunes without saving it to the +iTunes Music+ folder, iTunes won't move it to the RB.

  • Missing artwork for songs still on iPhone 4s after deleting those songs from my mac

    When I delete songs from iTunes on my mac, the next time I plug in my iphone 4s (for a manual sync) my iphone loses all the album artwork for any songs no longer on my mac (that are still on my phone).  How do I stop this from happening and restore artwork to my iphone without having to manually reapply the artwork to each song? 
    My best guess is that iTunes is syncing the song information/tags on my iphone to match the information/tags on my macbook each time I sync.  Whatever the reason, I should be able to import CDs, transfer them to my iphone (with artwork), delete the files from my computer (leaving them only on my iphone) and not have problems losing the artwork from my phone.  If it was there in the first place, it should stay there.  Help?

    I had same problem and took half a day to figure it out... I tried everything i could think or read here and nothing worked. So i decide to restore my iPhone 4S and configure it as a new one. But before, i did some copy/paste of my photos/video folders from Windows Explorer then i've select all then tried to delete it from windows explorer..after few deleted i got a message saying that the device wasnt responding or was unpluged. But wasnt.
    some files was not deletable. And in my iPhone the pictures wasnt there too but files was listed in windows explorer....
    So, i did a Photos sync but choosing the Windows Sample folder only. It wiped out all my photos folder and did new one, then all my songs were synced again and all is back and playable.
    I suggest, look if you have photos, videos, apps that isnt working or not deletable.. then wipe it out by an iTunes sync (unselecting sync those things or sync completely different apps or folder)
    It worked for me... Hope you get it fixed too.

  • Music folder empty after update to iOS 5/Musikordner leer

    After an update to iOS 5 no music is shown in the music folder of my Ipod touch 4 (64 GB) any more.
    But the titles are shown in ITunes on my mac when I link the pod. So, they are all there but they are not shown.
    A new synchronisation does not help. Who can help?

  • How can I manage my music without erasing all of my songs?

    For reference I've had iPods since about 2005 and I've been through this many times. My harddrive in my computer recently crashed and I had to replace it. Now all of my songs are gone (other than the ones I got on iTunes obviously). About half of my music (near 500 songs) are off of old CD's that I have since thrown away since I figured I had them saved on my iPhone and my laptop. Reference again: I had this happen when I had an iPod touch also with another computer. With my iPod touch, I was free to manage my music manually without erasing all my songs that were on my iPod. Now why can't I seem to do this now with my iPhone. Please help! I can't loose 500 songs! That's $500 that I DON'T HAVE to spend on music that I've already bought! P.S. I just need to know how to manually manage my music without erasing all my music!

  • HT1473 Can I delete any song from iPod shuffle I decide I don't want to listen to?

    Husband doesn't like all the songs I down loaded for his iPod touch.  Can I delete any of these?

    Hello Queen131,
    The iPod Touch can be set to 'manual mode,' which will allow for specific control over which songs are synced to the device, and allows for specific tracks to be removed.

  • Is there a way to mass delete any song with an exclamtion point next to it?

    All of the sudden after resetting the sync history in iTunes (while trying to troubleshoot the fact that the upgraded OS4 was only syncing about 25% of my total music library), all of the sudden all of the tracks that it didn't sync (the other 75%) all have exclamation points next to them in iTunes, which for each song indicates "The song can not be used because the original file cannot be found".
    Therefore, is there a way to mass delete all of these song names in iTunes? (then I can copy and paste the actual files into the "Automatically Add to iTunes" folder and the path to the file should work? (THEORETICALLY OF COURSE)... and... What would cause such a random error? (So frustrating because iTunes can locate where the file is when I click the button "yes" to the question "Would you like to locate it?", but at the me time two seconds earlier it's telling me "The original file cannot be found". ????????????????????????????????????????????????
    Truly RIDICULOUS apple. It's like DUDE, ***? Is this some kind of strange gliche with the new piece of crap OS4 (which I don't even need because I didn't get one of the "four" iPhone 4's that were released)?

  • ATV2 music drops out after 2-3 songs, withou fail.  Restarted/rebooted everything and my router shows no signal drops, suspect it is the home sharing but can't get into it to fix it. Am at my wits end.

    Recently bought the ATV2, all working well until 2-3 songs played and it drops out and returns to the main menu.  I have rebooted/restarted everything, and checked the event log in my router which shows no drop outs in WiFi connection.  When I tested it with a movie, it worked, ran for the length of the movie, but when I put on music it did it again. Suspect problem is software, maybe the home sharing and the time until it drops out is close to the same each time.  I am at a complete loss, and at my wits end.  Please help
