HT4527: iTunes: How to move your music to a new computerLearn about iTunes: How to move your music to a new computer
Thanks for your reply,
Seems I wasn't clear. I haven't moved my songs to another pc, I updated iTunes and now I can't locate any of my music when I try to play them. They are listed, just unable to play . If you can help that is great
Where are the tracks? Where does iTunes think they are? Use CTRL+I to Get Info. on a broken track, say No when prompted to locate and look at the summary tab. The location will begin file://localhost. Now find out where the file really is, just search for the filename & extension, e.g. 01 Help!.mp3
It may be possible to move a section of folders to where iTunes expects to find them, or correct a preference file if the difference between paths is an additional \Music folder. Alternatively, I have a script called FindTracks that may be able to relink the media if pointed at the folder where the files are stored.
Hey i did what you told me to do but i can't find the file that it is directing me to. Funnily, I can access all my music through my Iphone, but not on my PC. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Can you post back one of the paths beginning file://localhost? It may give me clues as to what has happened. Have you searched the entire computer for a target file name? You may need to jump through some hoops to get Windows to search properly... Did anything happen prior to things going wrong like a crash or working with another media player?
