Where are the music?

Just a quick question here. If I'm listening to music in iTunes, where are all the music stored, as in which directory. TIA!

Where the files are that you are playing in iTunes will depend on how you have iTunes configured. If in iTunes>Preferences>Advanced>General you have the boxes "Keep iTunes Music folder organised" and "Copy files to iTunes Music folder when adding to library" checked then the file iTunes uses this file structure to organise things:
User/Music/iTunes/iTunes Music/Artist/Album/File name
There are also folders for compilations, podcasts, TV shows, movies, games, and unknown.
If you aren't letting iTunes do the organising then files you add to the library will be in the folders you originally stored them in. To tell where a file in the library is located, right click on it (hold down Control and click when using a one button mouse or pad) and choose "Show in Finder", this will take you directly to where the file is kept.

  • HT4527 Where are the music I transferred with the Migration Assistant?

    I used the Migration Assistant to move my music library on iTunes to a new one, and both my new Macbook and old computer said the music transfer worked. However, I can´t seem to find the music files on my Mac that I wanted to transfer. Where are they, and how can I move them into iTunes?

    Log out, log in to the migrated account, locate the music, drag it to the /Users/Shared/ folder, and from there to the first account's home folder.

  • Where are the Music Files for Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2?

    I wanted to get the soundtrack from the Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 files using WinRar, and when I went into my Local Disk (c, and pressed program files. Then went to the folder entitled UbiSoft I pressed the GRAW2 folder. I then pressed the data folder, and there are three folders in there movies, settings, and sound. I pressed the sound folder thinking the music would be in there, but it was empty and so is the settings folder. So where did they store the music files for the game?

    Its probably compressed into one big file and decompressed on the fly.

  • Where are the audio files located?

    You know how when your video source is missing, it shows that ! with a yellow triangle around it? Then, when you hover over the !, it shows you where iMovie expected to find the video, and then you can just move the video there and it's fixed. But for audio, it doesn't show you where it is supposed to be located when you hover over the ! in the audio file (music green bar).
    So, where are the music files supposed to be located so that it can find them?

    To the best of my knowledge, iMovie simply links to the music file from wherever it is located in your system. That could be the iTunes Library, your Desktop, an external drive, or other places. So if you move the music to a different location, I assume that iMovie will lose track of it. iMovie doesn't actually import the music to the project - it's just referencing it (as far as I'm aware).
    If you know the name of the track (or tracks, or artists), try doing a search both within iTunes and on your hard drive using Spotlight. If found, the best solution is probably to drag it again into your project, then do the necessary edits if applicable.
    Note that, in iMovie the music tracks are identified by song name - it's shown at the beginning of the green audio bar. So the songs shouldn't be too difficult to track down. It's just a pain having to re-instate them.

  • Where are the pictures found in the Adobe Photoshop 10 organizer?

    Nov. 29, I had my computer repaired from a trojan, & I figured out that everything i've done since Sept. 13th was gone because when the computer guy was fixing it, he tried to put in the new MicroSD card reader, but he had to put an old one back in (from Sept.) as the new one had wrong connections.
    Then, when he started the PC he only had the C drive (& my documents and pictures are on the A drive). He turned it off and realized he accidentally disconnected one of the mirror hard drives for Drive A. He had to turn it off and open it again and reconnect the cable that was disconnected.
    During that moment perhaps a line in the drive had become corrupted. So, I restored through Carbonite, hoping I'd get back almost everything (or at least whatever was done being backed up). However, I lost quite a few pictures.
    Tuesday, however, I noticed that the pictures I lost were imported into the organizer for Adobe Photoshop 10, which is on the C drive, so I'm hoping the pictures are still there, even if they are thumbnails (I assume they would be)! But where are the pictures found in the Adobe Photoshop 10 organizer? I assume in a folder somewhere? Am I able to copy them? (A low quality image, is better than no image!)

    The thumbnail cache is separate and lives in the system files.
    You could try a new catalog - it doesn’t involve any duplication.
    Click: File >> Catalog
    Click the New button
    Give your catalog a name e.g. My Catalog2 (or whatever you prefer)
    Check the box Import Free Music - that will bring in the Adobe MP3 tracks used in slideshows
    Then click OK
    When the new blank catalog opens click: File >> Get Photos and Videos >> From Files & Folders
    Navigate to your root folder (normally Pictures or My Pictures or wherever you put your photos) then press Ctrl+A to select all sub folders or make sure the checkbox is marked.
    Click Open or Get Media
    Wait for Elements to complete the import, accept all keyword suggestions (select all) and then wait for thumbnails to finish generating.
      N.B. You may not get all the metadata (keywords etc) but in view of the problems you have had it may be your best hope.

  • Where are the local radio playlists/charts in the new iTunes

    Q: Where are the local radio playlists/charts in the new iTunes I like to see what the local radio stations and surrounding markets are playing. I used this feature all the time in iTunes 6.
    A. I just found the answer, but I'll post this anyway. The "Radio" link was moved from the iTunes store home page. From the iTunes Store homepage you have to click on "Music" in the "iTunes Store" box. Then, go to the "More In Music" box and click on "Radio."

  • Where's the music on iTunes, and what's with the quality and compatibility?

    I'm just curious as to whether anyone else has had this issue or not: Does anyone else feel like, after searching for specific songs, there's just little to nothing in the database? I feel like most of my searches are pointless because iTunes has either no data of my requested search and/or only has bits and pieces of it.
    Another question I have: After having a slightly successful search, why am I left with low quality tunes? I mean, you can hear the compression... badly. (I know it's not my speakers)
    Last question: If I'm paying for the song, shouldn't I be allowed to download a universal file? iTunes uses a unique format that no other application uses. In other words, more money has to be spend for m4a to mp3 converters (unless you're a cracker [not a racial comment]).
    To me, I value iTunes and its team, so I'm sorry if I've offended anyone. I understand there are contracts involved with the artists and it's hard to please ALL of the subscribers. But seriously, where's the music on iTunes, and what's with the quality and compatibility?

    Today I thought of finally putting lyrics on my songs. So I've been quite some time busy doing that, then I tried it on my iPad (2) and I can't find them. Just as the people above say. Then I went to search where I can find them and I found this page. I'm really dissapointed and I don't understand how something like this could happen. So I hope Apple will fix this soon.

  • Convert to MP3 - where are the files?

    Just imported a CD (my own recording = no copyright protection) into iTunes and need to convert it to MP3. Changed the iTunes importing preferences to import using MP3 encoder and the files play in iTunes ...
    ...but where are they?
    Where are the actual MP3 files?

    That's what's so strange ... there is no "Artist -> Album" folder.
    I placed the CD into the Mac & it asked if I wanted to import - said yes & the tracks popped up in the "recently imported" menu choice on the left. I created a playlist & drug all the tracks to the playlist.
    I can't even find any evidence on the computer that any files were imported from the CD. The tracks play fine in iTunes, but there aren't any corresponding files on the computer I can see - MP3 or otherwise.
    I'm looking in Music -> iTunes -> iTunes Music
    (There are several folders in there, but they are MP3s that I manually put into that folder so they'd appear in iTunes. It's the reverse I'm having trouble with - when you import music from a CD where does it store those files?)

    Welcome to the discussions,
    Your music and movies should still be part of the iTunes library on your computer. See if your movies are listed in "movies" in the left window in iTunes.
    Photos you took with the phone are part of the last backup, if you did not sync after that. If you did, the data got overwritten.

  • Where are the drivers?

    Alright it's probably a stupid question but I just bought a new mac that came with leopard.I used boot camp to partition and install windows vista on my new mac. Everything worked fine until I had to install the drivers.I don't know where the drivers are. They supposed to be in the leopard dvd that i don't have. Where are the drivers?

    Hi Obe7,
    the Mac OSX install disc that you used to install Leopard on your Mac is a 'hybrid'-disc, which contains an OSX part (only visible while in OSX) and a Windows part (only visible while in Windows).
    The BootCamp 2.0 drivers are on the Windows part of that disc.
    While in Windows insert that disc and usually the driver installation starts automatically.
    If not, use the Windows Explorer to navigate to the disc and start the 'setup.exe' file manually.
