    Anyway the new itunes is a shame!

    Very slow!!!! Always thinking....very very slow!

    Non-thought-out concept. I think it does not even mention who designed.

    Why did not exist the sorting options most of view!????? For me it was the best option!!!!

    Why cant see the artwork in the songs view!?

    I planning to backgrade ...where are you going,Apple!!?????

    Big screw up for iTune 11. To my opinon there is now real upgard. They change the look.

    But the took fonctions off like DJ voting option that was great for party.

    They did not bring new thing to it.

    Hey Niall Mallyon,

     

    SO BACK TO THE SAME PROBLEM!!!!

    I don't beleive this. It was the one reason I wanted to upgrade to itune 11.

     

    Ok so my next step after trying every thing possible.

     

    I'm going to make the big jump.

     

    Rebuilt my librairy from scratch by reimporting all my media in a fresh librairy.

     

    I'll keep you posted with the result.

     

    This is my last hope to solve this issue.

     

    GOD SPEED!!!

    Do U use any application or plugin with itunes? I use amarra and I noticed the music is interrupted when itunes generated temp file . The sound is ticking. But when i use itunes alone the problem is disappear.

    So i have two problems : the many temp files and the interrupted sounds.....****

    If U have any result pls let me know!

    thx for your information!

    i have only one folder is shared the dropbox.

    i think the problem is something about the privileges,because the temp file sometimes is lost of my privileges (and than cant overwrite the library itl file) that cause generate a new one.....

    anyway thx your idea i will try it
