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 http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

So I bought a new laptop (windows 8) and transferred my music library (about 7,000 songs) from my old laptop (windows 7) to my new one. After installing i-tunes, I was surprised to see that about a half of my songs have some aspect of their song-data missing (album, artist, tack title, year, artwork, genre). A few hundred songs have all their data missing except for their track name. I looked at the file properties on windows and all the data is inserted correctly, also windows media payer displays everything fine, but i-tunes messes everything up. I've tried several things but nothing works (re-installing i-tunes, updating to the newer version, adjusting all library settings in the preferences). I've deleted my library and tried to re-transfer my songs, but the same thing happens to the same songs. When I enter the data into the "get-info" it does remain, but I really don't want to manually enter all the data over again. Any ideas of what to try next?

Hey guys.
My i tunes and quicktime are both upto date, but when i try accessing the i-tunes store i get a Microsoft Visual C++ runtime error and it then closes I-Tunes.

I can access my currently downloaded music, apps etc.... if i click on the x when it says i-tunes store is loading, and can rome through i-tunes fine.
It will also play all my music with no problems.

Have done a registry clean, Virus Scan, Disk Check, Disk cleanup and Defrag and still no luck

It does however come up every now and again, and can access it and download music, apss and things.

Any advice on how to get proper functionality out of it, as it is really bugging me.

Thanks in advance.

(P.S. i have looked at previous topics and non display all the same characteristics i have)

I'm really stumped on this one. Last week I went to rename one song in my Windows 7 Music Library folder. I clicked 'rename' and put the cursor inside the blue highlighted name field. When I clicked to start typing the new title, all 80 songs were renamed to the same title. When that happened I did see a very brief green loading bar (?) appear at the top of the screen. All of the actual songs are intact and have not been affected; only now all the songs in this folder have the same name. Any simple soluitions? I'm guessing I must have had a finger-slip on the keyboard somewhere. I am a novice. Thank you very much. larryk

A:Went to rename a song in my Music Folder;now every song has same title

Hello Larry, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It sounds like you had selected all of the files when you renamed it causing them all to be renamed.

Right click on an empty area instead the Music folder to see if you may have a Undo Rename option to click on. You can also press Ctrl+Z for this.

I transfer old audio cassettes to CD-R's for family members and friends using Audacity, Been doing this for well over a year now.
Copy the media right over to the hard drive, save as an MP3 and burn it to disc using either WMP or Win Xp's feature.
Daughter got an upgrade to her I-Pod stuff and Quicktime.
Now I can only burn with I-tunes' (slower than molasses) software.
If I use WMP, a dialog window opens and say, WMP can't read this file, It's not an MP3 or is missing a codec, or something to that affect.
If I use Xp, it copies but it sounds like "ZiiiipZiiiipZiiiip". If that's a sound.

Can anyone tell me what happned?
Thank, Jeff

edit.
I should add this is not copyrighted material I'm copying to cd's. It's family stuff like Grandma playing the piano or little Johnny reciting a poem.

Just wanted to be clear.

Hello,

Yesterday I upgraded my iTunes to the newest version (7.1.5 i think), and ever since, whenever I open iTunes and click on a song to play my iTunes freezes up and then crashes. I'm thinking about just rolling back to my last version, but if there's any way to fix this, then I'd rather do that.

Thanks!

Same problem. Some songs work, some cause a crash. Incidentally, all the songs I've seen that cause crashes have artists that begin with A. Other artists that begin with A, however, have songs that play just fine. So that may not be helpful.

How do I fix this? Like 80% of the songs in my music library cannot be played by Cortana either by voice or typing a command in (I just get told I need a subscription when I already HAVE the song--only a few songs play properly via Cortana).

A:You need a subscription to play <song> by <artist> on Groove - Cortana

I can't tell by your screenshot what the format of the song is. If it is MP3, you should have no problem. But if you have a file saved in a type that requires a license and it's not on this PC, you won't be able to play it.

I'm using Powerpoint 2013 on a Windows 7 system. A productivity killer for me is in editing sound files. For example, if I have a presentation with fifty slides and I have a sound file that starts at Slide #15 and runs across slides till it ends at the end of Side #22 which has a duration of, say, ten seconds. If I want to have the slide change at the last beat of the song I need the timing exact. To make an adjustment, if I play Slide #22 I don't get sound; I need to start the show at Slide #15 then run through all eight slides during the song to get another shot at an adjustment. I really hope I'm missing something here and would love to have the option of just playing Slide #22 for ten seconds and have only the LAST approx. ten seconds of the song play so I can see the results of my previous adjustment...
 

A:Solved: Editing of Sound Files without having to play whole song

I don't think there is that option.
If you know the song length and the timing of the slides, surely you have all the information you need to get the sequence working?

Hey Gary,

Check to see if Windows Media Player is running when you're experiencing the issue by right clicking Taskbar - Task Manager - Processes and see if WMPlayer.exe is already running hidden. If so end process on it. Then re-boot the program. Does it re-create the error?

Problem is, when it opens iTunes to play my recording, it plays that recording and then proceeds down the list to play the next song and the next and so on.

A:i tunes help

Ipods will only sync with one music library, so unfortunately you need to transfer all music to one pc and sync from there... it's to do with copyright.. like if you could sync with any pc you could theoretically distribute purchased music to anyone. bad. they only want your ipod to sync with one library.
there could be ways to get round this... but i;m sure we wouldn't be allowed to discuss them on TSG

Q: I Tunes

Hi
I am new to the board. I would like to know more about I Tunes. What are the advantages of downloading i Tunes? I am keen to get an iPod. Thanks
 

A:I Tunes

The only real advantage to using iTunes is the iPod .... you have to use iTunes to load music on to it. Like most of the media players out there it does a decnet job and has become my player of choice (because I own an iPod and can't be bothered mucking about with more than one media player). iTunes music store is another thing though. I hate it, mainly because they use their own proprietary format to copy protect the files and other than the iPod there aren't many players out there that support it.

I want to rip my song back off this disk for my MP3 player, but I can't seem to to access it. If I look at the drive in Explorer it shows that it's an audio CD. if I open the drive, it shows nothing. Note: i have 2 drives, both DVD drives, one Sony and one LiteON. WMP 10 doesn't recognize it as an audio CD.
So, I decided to try to copy the disk. Roxio Disk Copier says this disk is "Reserved by Roxio Drag-To-Disk Kernel"...it says this in the Copier windows, below the source drive, as it's content. This disk was burnt using whatever drag-to-disk version (by Adaptec) was out 10 years ago...prolly like 3 or 4 I guess...Anything I do here?
