Question:

Question: Why am I seeing folders with two letter names or numbers that are empty?

In my iTunes directory, there are a bunch of folders I didn't make, that have two letter names or two numbers, that are empty?


Why does some of newly added music show up in the Music main directory in Finder, and not in the iTunes media folder?


I have Keep iTunes Media folder box checked under iTunes preferences, as well as Copy to iTunes Media folder when adding to library?


Is the iTunes Media folder location supposed to be the folder that the Media folder is in? My preference is that the path is Music/iTunes/iTunes Media/music.

Your iTunes Library.itl database would normally be inside ~/Music/iTunes and the media folder should be the iTunes Media folder inside that.


Make sure that your profile has full read and write permissions to the iTunes folder and all subfolders. Use Get Info on the iTunesfolder in Finder. Click the lock at the bottom right to make changes. Make sure that Locked isn't ticked and that your own account has Read & Write access, then use the gear icon to Apply to enclosed items and confirm.
