I love the new iOS4 capability of making and naming playlists on my ipod touch. I hate when I sync to iTunes on my computer and it wipes them all out. I have iTunes set to 'manually manage music and playlists' for my touch because I add/manage music on my touch from multiple PCs. If I check the checkbox to 'sync selected songs/playlists,' it tells me that all of my music will be wiped out. Is there some way to allow my playlists to be kept on my device and preserve my ability to manually manage music without having to wipe out the entire music library

Yet another Itunes Library question! I started a new Itunes library on a new Macbook Pro because my old Mac died. I finally got around to moving all the old Mac's mp3s into the new library, and I would now like to import the old library file (leaving my current playlists intact) to recreate the old Mac's playlists. I did this once before, so I know it can be done, but I can't remember how or find the instructions I used. Thanks!

I have iTunes set to both “Keep iTunes Media folder organized” and “Copy files to iTunes Media folder when adding to library.” Somewhere along the way I deleted songs from my library without also deleting them from my computer, which means I have a 14GB discrepancy between the files in my iTunes folder and the files actually included in my library.

My Mac won't allow me to access iTunes Store anymore...What's going on? [more inside]
I have two kids. Each has an ipod touch. Planning on adding two more to the household (mom and dad). Problem: I created an itunes store ID for each kid. Looking backward, wouldn't it have been smarter to create ONE Apple ID for the family, so I can see what is being purchased? I had a recent breach in my credit card and had several unauthorized purchases from Itunes...having one account might have led me to see this fraud a little sooner. (apart from checking my credit card statement daily) What do you multi-iphone-Touch families do? one account? If the devices all get registered to one account, can one transfer a paid app from one device to another? Will apps already purchased be lost if I consolidate the devices under a different username? Any family Apple device strategies appreciated.

Why does iTunes hate me? Not me specifically, but my iMac G4? Twice in the past month, I have had to wait as my entire iTunes library loads, as if it is loading for the very first time. iMac G4, 1GHz, 1.5Ghz SDRAM, OS 10.5.8. iTunes 9.1.1 just installed. 235Gb music files on 750Gb USB external drive. The "loading iTunes library" becomes a two to three day affair. [more inside]

Windows Vista no longer recognizes my iPhone 3Gs as a drive and I can't sync with iTunes. When I connect the phone it appears in the iTunes sidebar but no longer appears as a drive in Windows. My phone says it's syncing (set to manual, not automatic) but nothing syncs. So far I've tried: changing the USB cable and ports, reinstalling iTunes, hard booting computer and phone, and installing new iPhone driver. Any ideas? Thanks.

I sometimes rate songs on my iPhone or computer. I would like these ratings to persist in the cloud (e.g. independent of any particular computer).

iTunes will not download the latest podcasts from my subscriptions. Even if I unsubscribe and delete all my podcasts and then subscribe again, it won't download the latest ones. This happens for multiple podcasts. I've uninstall/reinstalled iTunes and the same thing. If I go to the podcast directly in the iTunes store, I can click on the specific episode and download it but it won't update in iTunes even if I try to manually update. Any ideas? It's driving me crazy and Apple won't help. My settings haven't changed. I have it set to check every hour and download the most recent one and to only keep unplayed podcasts.

There seem to be some interesting plugins for doing tedious library management chores (like say, TuneUp or TidySongs). Googling produces tons of non-reviews reviews and noise, and I don't feel like messing my stuff (and time) with lots of try-and-see's, not to mention you have to pay for them (yes, I'm ok with paying for a couple of these things if they are worth it but not just to experiment). So if you're so kind to share, tell me your personal experience and recommendations for iTunes plugins, for Windows. If your experience if s of something so vile I should run away from it, do tell too!
