Ipod Classic shows in My Computer and Itunes, but I cannot find the list of contents in Itunes?

My Computer and Itunes recognizes my Ipod Classic, but Itunes will not show "what's on this device". I can download (audiobooks) and when I disconnect, they are on the ipod.  I just can't see or delete, etc. anything, because the contents are not showing in Itunes.  I have reinstalled the latest Itunes and restarted the Ipod.  Now what?  Thanks!!

How can I fix this song in iTunes?

I recently bought a song on iTunes. When it began downloading, it would say "7.4/7.4 mb completed" but then start downloading all over again. It will continue to do this until a message pops up and says "error=1000 file may be corrupted". I have tried deleting it off the downloads but whenever I reopen iTunes, it comes back. How can I fix the song or delete it forever?

Regarding the itunes ringtone capabilities... Answered

I've noticed you can create ring tones from your favorite songs in iTunes if they were bough through the iTunes store. I'm not great with computers, so please keep it simple. :) I want to know: 1.) Will it work on any computer? 2.) Cost? 3.) How do you transfer it to a phone? 4.) Can you put the same one on multiple phones for no extra cost? 5.) How's the quality? 6.) Is it only for the iphone? Or can I use it for my T-Mobile Gravity? Thanks for your input!

iTunes controller?

I'm not sure if I was searching for the right key words, but I was planning on building a desk with all of my computer components built into it, save the monitor keyboard and mouse, and I wanted to make like a little controller for iTunes that controlls random, repeat, next song, previous song, pause, and play. Like, would it be possible to take apart a spare remote control and use the circuitry and buttons from that to do it? Is it even possible? Also, this will be on a Windows 7 PC

iTunes suxxors

I'm just going through my music now and I removed my entire library so I could go through my music and delete duplicates and whatnot without iTunes shitting itself because it's missing files. For this example I'll use my Tupac Shakur discography as an example. I had downloaded two Tupac discography's to go through and mix and match them (Example: Albums I don't have, or one discography has a high bit rate version of an album then what's in my music folder). That all done and said, which took a while, I dragged just my Tupac folder (updated one) into the itunes window, it says I have 1.83 gigs of music (remember just the Tupac stuff) yet the finder says the folder weighs 2gigs exactly. There's quite a difference between 1.83 gigs and 2, roughly 240mb or more. Anyone else notice this problem with their library, another reason to hate apple more? All together my music folder reads 9.96gb but in itunes it only comes to like 6.52 something? I call fuckin shenanigans, anyone else? Grab your pitchforks...

iTunes keeps "Re-buffering stream"?

Hello! lately i have had a lot of troubles with iTunes, mostly it doesn't want to load or won't allow me to purchase things. i've tried reloading Itunes twice and that works for a day or two then its back to not working. i have got the latest version and a good internet connection. the most common problem lately is when i try to listen to a preview of a song it will play it for a few seconds then stop and say "opening URL Re-Buffering Stream" and that happens on every preview I've tried? it continually does it, saying that every few seconds... it worked fine yesterday and i was able to listen to previews without any trouble but this morning its back to the Re-buffering thing? i don't really want to call Apple help as there doesn't appear to be a section for this kind of thing and they ask for personal information... has anyone else had this problem and know how i can fix it? thank you! from AAG

I need an iTunes-style database solution for all my videos...

Hello, Newby to Instructables, read about it in the newspaper today.  Looking forward to some help/input on this project of mine... I have a huge (and growing) volume of video media. pushing 5 TB, and I'll be buying another 2 TB drive before autumn.  Now, having all this media at my fingertips on my PC without having to rifle through my DVD library is great, but it's only half the battle.  What I really want to be able to do is search through all my videos and TV episodes with the same ease that I go through my music library in iTunes. So, what I need is some way to list each video, and list each "tag" that applies to that video (SciFi, TV, comedy, romance, etc., you get the picture).  So, Excel serves well enough for that part, though I'm not married to it as a long-term solution. And, Excel fails completely as a searchable database, where I can just type in, say, "SciFi" and get the database to present me with every single Start Trek, Stargate, B5, etc. TV episode and movie that I own. So, can anyone suggest a program that would already be able to do this for me? iTunes itself isn't a solution, because although I could  make a plethora of empty MP3 files, import them into iTunes, and assign all the metadata I want to them, there wouldn't be anyway to click on the empty MP3 entry and have the movie/video pop up and play. Also, my videos are either direct DVD rips or mkv files, so I can't import either of those into iTunes either. Thanks in advance!

iTunes help? Answered

Hey- random question out there but i have a quick question. Can i share my iTunes with more than 5 computers? I have read a few papers saying you can only authorize 5 computers to use itunes (for your account). We have 3 computers so far connected to iTunes, but i want to use a computer upstairs with it, and i also know we will be eventually expanding to more than 5 computers. I was thinking of using a hard drive transfer (as we have no internet jack close upstairs, and its not wireless so we cant use home sharing easily. i do have a 50 foot Ethernet cable that would work. hehe), and just copying the entire itunes library to a portable hard drive, copying it over to the computer, and selecting it from the library in itunes (would i have to authorize to use it?), and going from there. Its a mac-windows transfer, so not sure what would happen there.  I was thinking after transfer (and possible authorization), could i just de-authorize the computer, and still play the music?? Is it legal?

Free Music or a Way to Get iTunes into Final Cut Express? Answered

This is one of my major pet peeves. I'm growing tired of searching for back ally sites to convert music from one source (ie YouTube) to MP3 files, then download it (with a free virus as a bonus), all to get a song I already bought on iTunes into my videos! iTunes makes it impossible for anyone to do anything with their songs other then listen to them on ipods, which I don't even do. Personally, I think it's silly that I can't do anything with the songs I bought, it's a terrible waste of money.So, does anyone know how to bypass this, or know of another converter site. The one I used is no longer working. I'm making a video for AV class, but it won't be very effective without the music. Don't reduce me to recording the music off of my laptop speakers with a camcorder!
