iTunes "lost" my music library and now upon restoration, my Playlists are all empty

Q: iTunes "lost" my music library and now upon restoration, my Playlists are all empty

Referencing this earlier forum posting and answer:

I followed the same steps as directed and was able to successfully restore my entire music library, which is great! However, all my Playlists are now empty. Did I permanently lose them? I find it hard to believe that they are not mapped somehow and even if the files moved locations that I would lose all the data contained in them.

I have a complete back-up on another drive. How can I move the backed up Playlists over to my main iTunes account? Thank you for any assistance you can provide me to remedy this very frustrating and time consuming problem.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hey guys,

I've experienced a problem with my particular iTunes program in Windows 7. Whenever the iTunes program was running, it gives me an error stating in the form of a dialog(ue) box:

"The iTunes Library file cannot be saved. You do not have enough access priviges for this operation."

At first, I thought there was a virus that could have altered some files, but I've found out that my trusty 'ol AVG antivirus (free version 2012) that was doing a routine antivirus scan and that would have led into that error.

However, when I stopped the Antivirus scan - the error has simply gone away....

I was wondering how can I prevent this particular problem from re-occurring?

A:Windows 7: iTunes states that a "library file cannot be saved - insufficient rights"

it is scanning your library for nasties If you want to take a chance and if you are sure there will never be a nasty from something you may have downloaded and added to the library, you can exclude folders by using the "Scan specific files or folders" scan.

There was a special "code" you could add into your iTunesPref.xml file before that removes the Store Link. I was using that code until the new version of iTunes that now gives you a "Ping" link. Has a code been released for that yet?

If I go to the music library, then Sample Music, which has 3 sample files, it also has a folder named local disk.

Its empty, but right clicking and viewing properties shows it has 3 files and 4 folders, and is 400 bytes in size. It was created during the OSs install date, and is shared.

What is the purpose of this folder? I have hidden files to be showed enabled.

That folder does not belong there. It must have gootten in there with an erroneous manipulation.

Hello All,

I really hope someone can help me with this highly irritating problem.

I have vista home premium. In the regular Windows Media player I have all the proper cd covers. In the Media Center, Music Library, MANY of the cd covers are replaced with "Upgrade to Plus" graphics from musicmatch. I uninstalled musicmatch, but of course the problem didn't go away.. plus there were still folders (now deleted) left behind and a bunch of registry entries (not deleted, but nothing obviously related to my problem) still there.

Please, can someone help me get rid of this musicmatch virus. MusicMatch doesn't offer any support unless you buy the Plus version, which is disgraceful.

Thank You.

A:"Upgrade to Plus" icons in my VMC music library

If the "Upgrade to Plus" is in the mp3 tags, then you're going to have to use WMP to find the right album art and update the tags.

Here's an uninstall guide from MM tech support:

The following steps will take you through a very thorough uninstall and reinstall of Musicmatch Jukebox:

Step 1: Make sure all Musicmatch applications are shut down.
- Close Musicmatch Jukebox.
- Open the Task Manager (use the CTRL+SHIFT+ESCAPE key-combination on your keyboard.)
- Click the "Processes" tab.
- Click the "Image Name" column title to sort the list alphabetically.

If any of the following applications appear in the list, highlight the application then click the "End Process" button:


Note: Ending a process may take several seconds. You may see a message
indicating that the application is not responding during this time. This
is normal. Simply click the "End Now" button if you see this message.

- Exit the Task Manager.

Step 2: Uninstall Musicmatch Jukebox using Add/Remove Programs
- Click the Start button on the Windows taskbar.
- Click "Control Panel".
- Click "Add or Remove Programs".
- Select "Musicmatch Jukebox".
- Click the "Change/Remove" button.
- Select "Yes" if you are asked to verify that you want to remove any shared files.
- Reboot your PC.

Step 3: Remove any leftover files that were not automatically removed during uninstall.
- Delete any remaining Musicmatch Jukebox shortcuts from your desktop
- Close any applications that are currently running on your system.
This includes any system tray applications (next to the clock on the Taskbar.)
- Right-click on the Start button.
- Click "Explore".
- Navigate to the folder where Musicmatch was installed:

Example: C:\Program Files\

- Locate the "Musicmatch" directory, highlight it and press the delete key on your keyboard.
- Confirm that you want to delete it.
- Navigate to the Windows Temp directory

Example: C:\Documents and Settings\user\Local Settings\Temp

- Delete the files and folders in the Temp directory. Note: Any files that are in use will not be deleted.
- Navigate to the application data folder on your hard drive:

Example: C:\Documents and Settings\user\Local Settings\Application Data\

- Locate the "Musicmatch" directory, highlight it and press the delete key on your keyboard.
- Confirm that you want to delete it.

Note: Replace "user" with your Windows account name. The Local Settings folder is a system folder and may be hidden. To unhide system folders
follow the instructions at the following URL:

Step 4: Remove leftover registry entries that were not automatically removed during uninstall.
- Click the Start button.
- Click "Run"
- In the "Open" field type: regedit
- Click OK.

The Windows Registry editor should now be open. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU FOLLOW THE NEXT STEPS EXACTLY!

- In the left window pane you will see six main folders.
- Click the + next to the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" folder.
- Click the + next to the "Software" subfolder.
- You will see a list of folders in alphabetical order. If a "Musicmatch" folder exists, highlight it then press the delete key on your keyboard.
- Click "Yes" when you are asked to verify that you want to delete the folder.
- Close the Windows registry editor.

- Restart your computer.

Step 5: Reinstall the Musicmatch Jukebox.
- Please download the setup file from the following URL:

To ensure a successful installation, please save the file to your desktop before running the installation. If the installation is
successful, please be certain to restart... Read more

Just make sure you run it from your local computer and not on a network share...

I wanted to move the "My Music", "My Pictures", "My Videos" folders to another HDD. I moved the "My Documents" Folder to this HDD without a problem but the others I accidentally set the whole HDD as the folder (if that makes sense). So now the music, videos and pictures folders are set to this HDD and dont have an actual folder to change the properties of. Therein lies my dilema.

This is a known issue. It is by design.

As you may know, moving is in its essence an unsafe process. It would be better to use the actual sequence of copy and then delete.

Make sure "Documents" is still named "Documents" and not "Comics" (default name/setting)

Your focus should now first be on rescuiing the files stranded in the failed Recovery. To do this you'll need to boot the installer given in Step 1 of Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 to rescue the files as shown in Step 3.

You can then try unhanging Recovery by entering Device Manager during install to uninstall any Devices in error (likely video) so that Recovery completes: Device Manager - Access During Windows 7 Installation

If this doesn't work then wipe the HD with Diskpart Clean Command to run your Recovery Disks or get the superior Clean Reinstall.

Hello everybody,
I have a some trouble with my computer lately. I've undone some system restorations which has given me some trouble. After the restoration every icon in the start-bar has been duplicated (and tripled because I did another "undo-restoration"). How do I automatically or fast get these unessecary icons deleted?

I, by chance, saw that my free disk space is running down, but that it is doing it on time! 1 minute it says 10.5 GB the next it says 10.4, and so on. I think it might be the Sircam virus, so i'm going to try to remove it. Could it be that? or is it another problem?

Thank you for your help

A:"undo restoration" and possible virus problems :s

m not exactly sure what your problem is with the virus ..
see my sig for free scans + programs to cleane out your computer .. now to rid of the duplicate icons in the start menu , simply right click on the copy icon and select "Remove from list" or unpin or delete .. this should take care of the duplication .

Well I've got a tiny little problem with html etc files not showing up with the proper firefox icon and system restore has not worked remotely reliably on my machine for some time And has not now So one option is to restore or whatever the correct verb is the last Macrium Image I created C OS Drive - which I believe was created at a time before the silly icon problem surfaced As I understand it that should solve the problem However as I contemplate restoring this image it occurs to me for the first time that my C OS Drive will -- as a result of the quot restore Restoration Question A Macrium -- "D'oh" Image quot be rolled back to that image which means - does it not - that all data files which have been created and Macrium Image Restoration -- A "D'oh" Question saved there in the interim will vanish into the aether So this is my quot d'oh quot question part Is the last paragraph above accurate If so then quot obviously quot I should make backups of where I store files on my C drive backup my firefox bookmarks and backup my LiveMail emails and contacts - and save them to a different location Prior to the quot Macrium image restore quot so that afterwards I can make everything hunkey-dorey again So this is my quot d'oh quot question part Is the last paragraph above accurate Sorry for asking what appears to be such a basic question but this will be the first time I'm restoring a Macrium Image to my quot working computer quot and I approach it with a little trepidation Trepidation both because this is after all my quot working computer quot whose OS I am intending to wipe out and replace and because the exercise will be a pain in the ass more than generally might otherwise be the case since the image was taken right after I installed Microsoft Word Office XP but before the deluge of Word updates following that install were themselves installed As such once I get the saved image quot restored quot it will be a bit of work to get things back to normal again and no doubt there are other intervening Windows updates in the mix as well Thanks in advance for your comments responses

A:Macrium Image Restoration -- A "D'oh" Question

Sorry, but I am not sure what your question is. You are correct in that it will restore the image to the way the computer was at the time the image was taken. The procedure is quite simple and quick with Macrium. It is quite easy to restore your files and folders after the backup. Just make sure to back them up first. The only issue will be the programs you installed since the image was taken and yes the updates too. I hope these answered your questions.

BTW, In the future, to avoid these issues you should consider making frequent backups. I make a backup every day. I also backup to an internal hard drive and 2 external hard drives. You can never trust a hard drive. I learned the hard way. There is also a simple program that will backup all of your user folders. Microsoft Synctoy. I use that daily. User files, to me, are the most important. You can reinstall the OS and programs if necessary, but you can't replace many documents, family photos and the like. I hope this has helped. If not write back and I will try to answer your questions.

First off this is my work laptop.

I have my standard Music library, which is a directory directly off the C drive.

When I download or move into that "Music" directory the directory I moved has a lock icon on it.

In order to get rid of the icon, I need to add "Authenticated Users" to the list of groups, and then I need to take ownership of the directory under my account in order to to do anything.

If this directory is in my download directory, it's fine...but as soon as I move it there the above situation arises.

What have I messed up?

A:Need To Add "Authenticated Users" Every Directory Within "Music"

I used the search function for directory permissions, ownership and inherited permissions and they all led to the Security forum. I'm pretty sure file security and permissions falls under OS security.

A friend's computer... total nightmare... she doesn't know much about computers, and it seems thoroughly messed up. Tried installing Windows Defender, and it couldn't find her "My Pictures" folder so it didn't install. So I looked under her My Documents folder. It's missing the My Pictures and My Music folders. Plus, the other folders that are there, such as My Videos, etc., their icons are not special, they look like ordinary folders.

Her computer's "Shared Documents" section looks fine, with all the usual folders with special icons, etc.

Any thoughts?

A:How to fix "not responding" problem in all programs and "lost updates"

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

That temp file that you mentioned, is it in the root of the system drive?
In other words is it located here: C:\1ee10074....

If that is where it is, then it could be from a .NET update. They do not always remove that randomly named folder. Don't delete it just yet, go inside of it (say continue to the permissions security pop ups). If you find several folders with 4 numbers for the name, then it is probably from an update. Those numbered folders are for different languages. You can delete the folder if you want or just leave it. The folder is not the cause of your problems.

Try a scan with this:

Hello, my father's computer is running EXTREMELY slow. I am very techy and pretty much narrowed it down to being old and not kept up with over the years.

If it were my personal computer, i would back up what i need, then full wipe and reinstall windows.

However, he had thousands of files and important work documents that MUST not get lost or destroyed.

What i have in mind is this:

Resize the current partition.
Install windows onto the newly created partition.

What my difficulties are:
How can i have the old programs still working since its booting from the new partition?
How can new programs which are installed be placed on the old partition?

What i pretty much need is to reinstall windows without losing anything.

Give me some ideas geniuses :)

Help anybody? My operating system is Windows 10 and I am using the latest iTunes version, 12.3.2; the problem I've encountered is that with some CDs, when I download them into iTunes and call up the downloaded file, only one or two of the tracks are shown in black whilst the rest are greyed out. This doesn't prevent the greyed out tracks being played in iTunes, but if I try and burn those tracks to make a compilation CD, they wont burn. There is no such problem with the tracks shown in black (on the same CD). I've tried re-downloading the CD, but it makes no difference. Any ideas how to resolve this problem gratefully received.

My brother just downloaded a bunch of mp3s into my Music folder in my new laptop. I recently bought a 5.5 gen Video iPod and decided to include all these new songs in it. By dragging and dropping them into the iTunes library, they all went in.

That´s what I thought! When I saw the Library list, it was much shorter! I tried to manually drag-and-drop specific mp3s that hadn´t been copied onto the Library list. The ¨plus sign¨ icon indicating a file is being included showed up, but the file is not in there.

I have checked the properties in these files and they are the same as others in the Library, why are they not going thru?

A:Transferring iTunes music library to new PC

Delete your iTunes Library.itl and iTunes Music Library.xml from the computer with the problem and then re-add the music. They are normally stored in the My Music\iTunes folder but I don't know where they would be stored on your machine. It sounds like you copied the library files over from the computer with all your music on the C drive so the new computer will look for the files on the C drive. The only way to stop this is to delete the library and have it re-find the songs.

Maybe this might help you out. One option that I did was that you take all the media in your iTunes library and choose to delete them, iTunes will then ask you to either remove them from the library or move them to the recycle bin. Just click remove from the library. Then go to File -> Add Folder to Library. Browse though to find your folder that you've kept your music on and your library should be restored. Hopefully this helps.

So what I'm wondering is... can I back up all that music on 3-4 700mb disks as a data disk instead of making a 70 minute music disk?

I have Sonic RecordNow that I use for music burning and data backup. I'm just wondering if it is possible to back up 1/3 of it in a folder as a data disk, and do the same for the other parts.

Possible? Would this work?

It would make much more sense to have 4 disks that although you could not PLAY them in a CD player as the songs would be stored in a folder on it, to just be able to copy them out onto another computer instead of making 20+ audio CD's.

Would my idea work? Help me out guys...

Hello I have created a library called integrate I view? Question: Can "Arrange the by Library Folder" quot America quot and put folders into it quot East quot Library Question: Can I integrate the "Arrange by Folder" view? quot West quot quot North quot and quot South quot Each of these regional folders real folders not libraries contains a separate folder for each state in that region Thus the quot West quot folder contains folders called quot California quot quot Oregon quot etc Lastly each state folder contains all types of files pertaining to the specific state When I open the quot America quot library I would like to see an integrated and alphabetized listing of ALL the state folders quot Alabama quot quot Alaska quot quot Arkansas quot etc However when I configure the library to sort by folder it sorts the state folders by name but only WITHIN their respective regions That's not my vision I'm looking for an integrated A-to-Z list of all the folders across all the regions Alternatively if I select the quot Sort by name quot option then all the state folders disappear and they are replaced by a very long list of all the component files -- it's an integrated alphabetized list good but of files bad not the state folders that contain them Can anyone suggest a clever tweak to move me closer to my vision Thanks Jay

I know you officially dont recommend 'registry cleaners', but if we do use them, is there a good place to find out what some of these messages mean in terms of ok to delete such entries (besides asking the WRC people) ?

A:Asked 3 weeks ago- only got partial answer to multiple "Library" ?s

Those are configuration files and basic script. They are inocuous and can be deleted without worry. To stop them from appearing if you feel you need to, remembering they're not harmful and will be regenerated by whichever program uses them, you will need to disable or uninstall the likely culprit. Right click one of the icons with a gear on it ( a config. file) and select edit, post a screeny of the contents, you might have to do that with a few before anyone can tell what created them.

Overall though it's nothing to worry about.

I clicked on "restore settings" in my pictures library mistakenly thinking it would make the changes I made to the navigation pane go back to the way I had it a moment before(like an undo button) but it totally messed up the organization of my photos. They now show as folders even though the view is set to large icons. They are no longer organized by month but by when they were downloaded to my computer. Photos are a high priority for me. I'm sick about it... I read something about a systems restore button in the control panel, but I'm scared. I don't want to wreck anything further.


A:clicked on "restore settings" in my pictures library, oops

Hello, and welcome to Eight Forums.

By default, the Pictures library is:

Arrange by -> FolderView by -> Medium iconsSort by -> Folder pathGroup by -> Folder path

You can adjust these to how you like. You may need to play with it a bit though.

I have a problem with windows saying my 1TB WD HDD isnt there. When I boot my computer up i can see it on the boot menu, but when i log into my computer an error message pops up and says "error: core library not found", and my D: is gone. I boot off of a 64gb SSD. It also seems the problem is getting worse, earlier I could access the HDD but it would randomly disconnect sometimes, and a restart would solve the problem. Awhile after that (few hours or so) it would disconnect whenever i tried to access it. And when i rebooted I could see it again, but if I tried to access it would continue to disconnect. Now whenever I boot I can see it in the boot menu but when I get into windows I get that error message.

After slaving away at a hot CD cleaner (the MadCatz one to be specific), I found that my Windows XP Pro CD still had several light scratches here and there. Despite this, I was able to reformat my HD with it, although I had to skip the copying of several files along the way (scrobj.dll, script.dll, script_a.dll, some others). With about 15 minutes left in thecd key-entering part of the setup, I get this error:

Windows cannot load the Internet Configuration library (ICFGNT.DLL). The following error occurred: The specified module could not be found.

Setup continues smoothly when clicking "OK," but I can't connect to the internet when setup is complete, nor can I install my nVidia nForce Network Access Manager/Firewall. The error for that goes soemthing along the lines of, "Runtime Script could not be found."

Open the relevant library folder, then open the flash drive in a new window. Select all of the files you want to copy (or do them one at a time if you like) then right click and hold, drag to the library folder, release right click and choose 'Copy here'.

Example below, substitute 'Gav's Pictures' for your flash drive and my F: drive as your destination library folder.

HELP!! I got tired of all the clutter in the "Documents" section of the Libraries. I created a new Library for my client files. I included a folder and many sub-folders from deep within the Documents library. It is working properly, the files and folders are now available in the new Library.

GREAT, BUT!!! Now every file (even I.E. favorites) that was in the Documents library is listed removed from their folders. This is over 13,000 files! In the "Documents" Library there is still "My Documents" file (I came from XP), and the files and folders are properly displayed there.

How do I get the Documents file to not show me every file I have removed from their folders?

A:"Not enough space left to complete backup" on 4GB empty memory stick?

Best to make a full copy (image) of your hard drive, to recover. The Windows backup only backs up certain files. You are still left to reinstall most everything (including Windows). The Marcrium Reflect (a UK company), free version, will do nicely. But, you need something more than a disc or flash drive. A USB connected hard drive would probably be best.

But when clicked on that file and choose "Open file location" it redirects me to proper file and then I can open it no problem.
All "good files" will show up without .jpg extension in search window that will open perfect.

It happened maybe with 50 pictures already.
Windows is up to date and Index data was rebuild with same effect.
Could be something screwup in the registry?

A:Windows Search brings 0 bytes "not" empty files

Welcome to the Forums.

I have a feeling the "over 100,000" may have something to do with it.
For NTFS partitions Everything Search is free and lightning fast. It uses the MFT info to speed thngs up(which is why it only works on NTFS.)

Hi All, This happened today I think. I right click a file in WindowsExplorer, roll down to the "Send to" and I get a small empty white box. Where did all my "Send to" options go and how can I get them back? Things like "Desktop (create shortcut)" etc. All gone. I did a search here but I could not get it to consider "Send to" as a single search phrase, it returned stuff for "send" Thanks

I move files from anywhere to the recycle bin (clicking delete or dragging,) but the icon does not change. If I right-click the icon, "Empty Recycle Bin" is grayed out. Clicking "Refresh" does nothing.

Here's the odd part: opening the bin/folder or deleting files with the folder open will change the icon in the way that it should.

Emptying the bin changes back to the "empty" iicon as it should.

A:[SOLVED] "Full" Recycle Bin icon shows as empty

Hi, go to start, search and type:- cmd, right click on the returned, cmd.exe and select "run as administrator" at the prompt type:-

rd /s /q C:\$Recycle.bin
( press enter)

I hope someone can help.

I upgraded my trusty old (very old) Dell small form factor PC to Windows 7.

All seemed well, until I tried to burn a Dual Layer DVD+R with Nero.

I got the message that the disk is not empty.

Tried again with ImgBurn - same message.

I've tried lots of disks, same issue. Have over 500 to use up which is the problem!

Does work with a Verbatim SL DVD+R disk

It's a TSSTcorp DVD+-RW TS-L532B ATA Device

Anyone any ideas?

I'm guessing I've either asked the wrong forum, or there is no answer?
