Itunes Help!!!


I know that this isn't a computer forum, but...

I am running Itunes on my PC and am having a problem. Every now and then, random songs will not play. According to Itunes, the song file can't be found. When I go to the album folder where the song should be, it is missing.

Has anyone else had this problem???

most likely a self-destructing .mp4 or .m4a or whatever shared file.
If you dont pay for them they vanish. (aquired from iTunes store) Bu and rip your own CD's and you wont have that problem.

no happens to me sometimes when im playing a music file from a shared computer. or an external hard disk and the device is switched off..then itunes tries to look for the file, and asks to locate it

that was my point exactly - those certain files are not meant to be shared.
I'm not being pompous - you misread my tone. I stay away from those smart files - makes life difficult

these are songs that I ripped from my own CD's so I dont know what is happening. Once again, Apple products prove to be un-stable

i am going to go with user error on this one. I have run itunes on my PC with zero problems.

mdler - ive ran into that problem about a year or so ago on my mac. the problem seemed to be that i ripped music outside the designated folder (home/music on mac and probably my documents/my music on PC) - selective songs from cds ive ripped mysteriously vanished and i didnt know why, and reindexing my drive for those missing songs didnt help. all i did was reinstall and update itunes and allow it to manage all my files and since then i havent had any problems.

mdler: I don't know which programme you used to rip your cds, but if do happen to use itunes for ripping your songs, it should put it in the my music/itunes folder. or what i usually do it just select songs from cd and drag them into the library.

however, if you're positive your songs are still in your disk, what you could do is locate and add them to the library again and use itunes to consolidate your library. it should copy everything to my music/itunes.

Let itunes organise your library (consolidate)

burn/import using iTunes - go through your preferences and select "import using mp3 encoder" sure to get the file names before you import..blah blah blah. I, too have found iTunes and my iPod to be amazing.
