    Moving iTunes from Win XP to Win 7?

    I was a happy camper running iTunes on my Win XP box until the motherboard blew out. Too expensive to fix, so I bought a new box with Win 7. Fortunately, 4 days before the XP box died, I had made a full backup of the XP system! :) Now, on to the win 7 box. Not seeing that there was a 64 bit...

    New iPod replacing dead iPod... help

    I just got a new iPod to replace my old one that died. I have 60Gb+ already in iTunes from the previous iPod. Can I just attach the new iPod move all my content to the new iPod or do I have to do something special? Is it really just as simple as to sync the new one and go on my merry way, or is...

    Let me set the scenario. My daughter had a 20Gb old iPod and my son had a 4Gb Nano. My son got an iTouch recently and my daughter's iPod died. My daughter doesn't have the $$ to replace hers right now. My son's Nano still has the music on it that he likes, but doesn't want to empty it. My...

    Folder icon?? Help! Please!

    I have an iPod with the 4 "buttons" above the wheel (I believe its 3rd Generation). Anyway, just recently, all I see is the Apple logo as it starts up and then the Folder icon. After some disk churning, it goes back to the Apple logo. When I connect it to a Windows PC, windows does not...

    How do I pull together a split library?

    My daughter's entire iTunes library was on my external drive H. Once, unknowingly, H was offline when she used iTunes. She then proceeded to import a CD. Since iTunes didn't see the H drive, it reverted to the "standard" Drive C, under her My Docs / Music / iTunes. Consequently, she now has...

    Music in the wrong place!

    When I moved my iTunes and music to my new computer, all of my music was on my external "H" drive. iTunes was happy as it new where everything was and all was well. I went to play around and see how much hard drive I have left and and noticed that some of my music was not in the "H" location. I...

    Stop the buying!

    Is it necessary to keep the iTunes software "logged in" to an account name when in use locally? As it is now, my daughter has free access to downloading songs because iTunes is logged in. How do I make it so that iTunes ALWAYS asks for a password prior to buying a song? thanks.... ---Paul
