My Tunes Wont Work It Says I Need To Add A Liabry?From Music & Music Players Forum:
My tunes wont work it says I need to add a liabry? I click to open up my tunes but all it says is "Itunes needs a library to continue. You may choose an existing Libra or create a new one" anyone know how to do this? Hey thanks Eric but my tunes wont open up at all. I click on the in tunes but that message pops up I click OK and then that's it. Thanks anyways!
Answer: you need to look in the tunes folder on your hard drive and REMOVE any files saying library before restarting tunes (the files have be com e corrupted) start tunes again then add music to the library manually. When you add songs to tunes you don't add the actual song - just a link to it's location. The "!" means that that song is no longer findable . For example the memory stick has been removed. To avoid this you need to do the following:- In tunes preferences set both "let tunes manage my music" And "iTunes keeps local copy in music folder " - the exact wording and location in preys will depend on version of tunes you are running Once you have done this, plug in your memory stick again and add the tracks again to The library (this time the screen in tunes will say copying songs briefly). Then to let tunes manage your music select "consolidate library " from Either the file or advanced menus again this depends on The version of tunes you are running . Your music is now stored as links in the library plus the actual files are in Your tunes music folder and to be safe you should back up the contents of your tunes folder on my music

How Do I Make My Tunes Music Folder Organize My Files Automatically?From Software Forum:
How do I make my tunes music folder organize my files automatically? I'm using tunes, and for some reason when music files go into my tunes music folder, it won't organize it into artist automatically even though I enabled that option in the tunes preferences. Instead, the file just sits inside the tunes music folder unsorted.
Answer: Hello, my impression is that you are wanting to have the tunes folder on your computer (in the file browser) to appear organized and not within the tunes interface itself. If that is the case then you may have to do a few more steps to get your folders into organized heaven. iTunes automatically organizes music based on the I'D tags stored inside your music. These are things like Artist, Album and what-have-you. If your music came from the tunes Music store, then this music should be already organized, however if your music has come from your private ripped music collection and you didn't fill in this information or it was not able to be downloaded automatically from the Internet, then you are going to have to fill this in yourself. This can be true if you get your music from "other sources" and the people who ripped those didn't do a great job in labelling the tags. Anyhow, how you fix this is to look in your library for songs that don't have the Artist and Album information added. An easy way to do this is to create a Smart Play list. Go to the File menu and select "New Smart Playlist…" then create a play list with the following rules: "Artist" "is" "" (basically leave the text field empty to look for all Artists who's name is blank.) Click the + to create another rule: "Album" "is" "" (to look for all Album who's name is blank.) Change the conditions of the rule from "Match all of the following rules" to be "Match any of the following rules". Leave Live updating checked and the other two unchecked. Click OK and name the Play list "Songs to tag" or something like that. You will then have a Smart Play list that lists all of your songs that need fixing. Just ignore the videos in your list if you don't care about those. Now that you've identified the trouble songs, then next step is to fill in the ID tags. Click on the first song in your list and then from the File Menu do a Get Info. Fill in the correct Artist and Album information and when done that song, click the Next button below. Feel free to fill in any other information for the some such as year or track number that you know and assign a Genre. But the main ones are Name, Artist, and Album. You also will see a check box "Part of a compilation". This means that your song is from a CD or collection that is a mixture of artists. An example would be a CD "Best of the 70's" or a Movie Soundtrack this may include songs from various artists but are all from the same album. If this box is not checked you would find that you would have 10 or so "albums" with the same name all with just one or two songs in it. To get them all into the same album a check on this button will combine all the artists into one album. Once you've done all this and you have no more songs listed in your "Songs to tag" Smart Play list, you should have a neat and tidy tunes Music Library folder! Hope that helps, let me know if you need any more clarification. Cheers, Skip.

How Do I Get Tunes To Refresh Its Database?From Music & Music Players Forum:
How do I get tunes to refresh its database? After installing tunes and loading up my new pod, I discovered that my I'd tags were a mess. I used an external editor to do batch changes (the godfather), and things now appear to be much cleaner. However, tunes does not reflect the changes that I made.
