iTunes won't download album despite the correct metadata artwork

For some albums, iTunes will not download album despite the correct metadata artwork.

It will download other graphic works (sometimes even when metadata is not correctly match).

Is it possible to determine the metadata that should be used to force iTunes to actually download the art for a specific album of the store?

Or is it possible to download the work of the store to an album without metadata change?

If iTunes works the same as it has for a while, I don't want to download the work manually and then manually associate the iTunes tracks, because that adds a copy of the work of each of the files.  (if iTunes has been changed to not insert a copy of the work in all track files when you manually add work instead of download from the store in iTunes, please let me know)


It seems to be a problem in the interaction between iTunes and the store which results in the failure to return the work even when metadata are matched.  Drawn from here and elsewhere, it started with the release of iTunes 12.2 and the launch of Apple's music and many receive some press releases, pending a fix (which could be an iTunes update or correction for the operation of the store), there is no alternative other than the addition of work from other sources.

  • HP Photsmart 7520: cannot print list albums drop itunes. ITunes won't have access to the file.

    Welcome to the Community Forum of HP.

    You are asking two different questions - and two different approaches.

    iTunes has restriction policies regarding its records - for example, you cannot save data in certain areas of the installation of iTunes, even if you essentially the rights to most of your computer.    You cannot write in protected areas - other areas, you can still access the files or data.

    Maybe you can make a list of the songs you have, depending on how you go about it and save this list to a file - and then save this file in a location on your computer in which you are allowed to save files.

    You can save a list in Office Word (.docx) format, and then save this file in a .pdf format.

    You can then print this .pdf file.

    If you can view the files on the screen - and an image will suffice as a 'list', you can use Snip to create an image of the file and then print as your list.

  • iTunes won't let me use the backup

    Today, I got the 6 s, and I'm trying to restore from a backup of my 5s I made earlier today. However when he gives me the options for backups I don't see that I'm looking for. When I plug the s 5 it is said that the last backup of it was today and when I go into preferences back to top shows there. Is there anyway that I can use the back up? Thank you.

    Chances are your new phone is not being updated, so that it cannot find the backup that you did on your most recently updated device.

    Ex: If only your iPhone's iOS 9.1, backups performed in this version is unusable on phones that are not updated to this version.

    Solution: Update your phone! You will have to set up as new, update, then go to settings > General > reset > erase content and settings to reset the phone to factory settings, and then restore from backup!

  • gotoandPlay won't do not to the correct second time through image tag

    Im having trouble with this simple project, I am working on. Its base all.  There is a back and a button continue at each image. The first picture play until the 50 chassis I have labeled "slideone." The code for this frame is:


    back_btn.addEventListener (MouseEvent.CLICK, backFrame);

    function backFrame(evt:MouseEvent):void {}

    gotoAndPlay ("intro");


    continue_btn.addEventListener (MouseEvent.CLICK, continueFrame);

    function continueFrame(evt:MouseEvent):void {}

    gotoAndPlay ("slideoneend");


    By clicking the button continue, takes you to the next series of images that has two buttons again and the code:


    back_btn.addEventListener (MouseEvent.CLICK, backFrame1);

    function backFrame1(evt:MouseEvent):void {}

    gotoAndPlay ("slideone");


    continue_btn.addEventListener (MouseEvent.CLICK, continueFrame1);

    function continueFrame1(evt:MouseEvent):void {}

    gotoAndPlay ("slidetwoend");


    This happens about 4 times where he buttons are clickable to go to the next series of images, and it works perfectly fine when I ran it the first time, but by clicking on "continue". When I decide I want to go back and watch the previous slides and then click on continue again, he won't have to the frame. It jumps to the next image tag.

    Anyone know why that would happen?

    If this code buttons are continuous along the layer of the timeline (not), they inherit the code of the previous (s) and vice versa.

    What you can do is rather just have a function for forward and a back for the entire timeline and have these functions use variables for image tags.  In the new images of the section, you assign new values to the variables rather than assign the new code for the buittons.

  • iPhone: buying music on iTunes that won't download


    I'm on my iPhone buy simple individual songs and I bought an and now it shows "purchased" in iTunes but when I go to my library of Apple's music, he shows here (in grey), but gives me a "this item unavailable" & «cannot read this article» I restarted my iphone, tried to redownload it but nothing works and I can not even play or buy again.


    Hi elizabethenortega,

    Thanks for checking out the communities Support from Apple! I understand that you are unable to play a song that you bought from iTunes as it says "this item is not available" and "this element cannot be read. I listen to music on my iPhone all the time so I can certainly understand wanting to make sure that you are able to access all of your purchased music.

    You have already tried a few strides to get your work of music! The next step that I recommend trying is to force quit the music app and then re-opening.

    Force a nearby application on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch

    If you still have problems after that, the next thing you'll want to check is that you are connected to the correct Apple in settings > iTunes and App Store. You must be connected to the same Apple ID that you used to purchase the song.

    You can also go to settings > music and turn your music library to iCloud turn off and on. This will refresh your library of Apple's music. Remember that this will delete the songs that you have currently downloaded for offline listening and you will need to re - download it again once you turn it back on.

    See you soon!
