How to store the original and to remove some duplicate songs in iTunes on a PC Win7, which took place after iTunes to scan for music during a re - install?

How to store the original and to remove some duplicate songs in iTunes on a PC Win7, which took place after iTunes to scan for music during a re - install?

I recently had to format my hard drive and reinstall iTunes 12.3.2.35 on my Win7 PC. As part of the re - install iTunes, I clicked on the button scan for music.  This has created duplicates several of my songs.  I deleted then the duplicate songs from iTunes, but when I went to play a few songs a pop-up said "the song would not be because the original could not be found.  You want to locate? "When I tried to locate the song it is not found, but when I pulled the songs out of the trash they could be found.

How can I keep the original and remove any duplicate songs in iTunes on PC Win7 which took place after iTunes to scan for music during a re - install?

iTunes can create duplicates if the same content is added several times from outside the media folder when it is about to make copies of everything that is added to the library, or is added from an external drive that hosts the press kit that was disconnected during the launch of iTunes.

Official notice of Apple on the duplicates is here: find and remove duplicates in your iTunes library. This is a manual process and article fails to explain some of the potential pitfalls such as the lost coast and membership of playlist, or sometimes the same file can be represented by multiple entries in the library as well as a removal and recycling the file will break all the others.

Use MAJ > display > show items to reproduce exactly to display the duplicates because it is normally a selection more useful. You must manually select all but one of each group to remove. Sort the list by Date added can make easier select appropriate tracks, but it works better when executed immediately after the dupes were created.  If you have several entries in iTunes connected to a same file on the disk hard then don't not send to trash.

Use my DeDuper script (Windows only) If you are not sure, do not want to do it by hand, or want to maintain ratings, play counts and playlist membership. See this background thread , this post for detailed instructions and Please take note of the warning to back up your library before deduping.

(If you don't see the menu bar press ALT to temporarily view or CTRL + B to keep displayed.)

The latest version of the script can put away the dead links as long as there is at least a double live to merge his stats and membership of the playlist and must deal wisely when the same file has been added through multiple paths.

    No, I loaded 7 a window in one of our systems.  I want to change the IRQ and address some of the COM ports and were not too.  In the pasted, you can enter the Device Manager and click on the device, then go to the "resources" tab.  There, you can find a box that allows users to disable "USE AUTOMATIC ADJUSTMENT", which would allow you to change the IRQ and address.  But for some reason any box is not highlighted so you can not.

  • HP50g: HP50g - how to combine the programs and data of some units?

    Like some people on this forum, I have a few pieces of HP50g. On each article there are data and different programs. I'm tired of this mess and want to combine all the programs of all the units in a BASE directory and install the same programs on each unit. As I'll probably do this opreation from time to time in the future, I'm looking for an effective and convenient way to do it. Using the IR ports and programs sending one unit to another would be very slow. Backup on card standard SD also would not be useful in my view (make a backup of each unit, copy on the PC, but what then?).

    Someone on this forum would have hot suggestions to make?

    Hello

    Although you cannot select HOME directory as such, but you can select and copy some or all the elements in the HOME directory and copy only once on the SD card.

    In the FOLDERS menu go to the HOME directory and select the first item and press ENTER, the element highlight will receive a number 1 next to it. In addition to the selection of items with the button ENTER will be number 2, 3 etc. According to him.

    When you have selected all the items you want, COPY and select destination (SD). Unfortunately the built-in FILES does not select the subdirectories of the SD card, but I think that can SDFILER: SDFILER 1.3

  • Restoration of openers program: how to restore the original program of opening such as internet explore and itunes instead of notepad ++

    on my computer, I have somehow changed the settings for applications on windows 7 open with notepad ++ how to restore the original program of opening such as internet explore and itunes instead of notepad ++

    I've seen this happen when opening a program via a shortcut (for example. LNK file), you are asked what type of program to open it with. After selection of Notepad ++ (or another program) via the Select a program from a list of installed programsand checking the always use the selected program to open this type of file, document or program referenced by the shortcut of origin opens in Notepad ++ as it should.

    The problem is that now all shortcuts (for example. LNK files) on the desktop or in the browser will want to open Notepad ++ and use the icon of Notepad ++ to display the shortcut no matter what shortcut was originally intentioned to open. This is known as a file association and the default icon.

    The good news is that a small free utility was written to cancel the. LNK file association was created. There is also a registry hack to achieve, but I recommend the utility unASSOC for its ease of use.

    A utility to Unassociate Types of files in Windows 7 and Vista

    Just download and then use the utility to unassociate the. LNK files. Manual is available on the web page above (the same place to get the utility). Quite simply, you run the program and wait for the list of the types of files to complete. Select. LNK in the list and then click delete the file type.

    Can I know how to restore the original interface?

    Also, how do I drag videos to the timeline when it doesn't have any audio or video track line that I can work with, unlike the CS6 version I was using?

    Hi Erica,

    To restore:

    In the menu items, choose window > workspace > reset Workspace

    To add the video to the timeline:

    • Select file > new > sequence and create a sequence. Drag the video to the new sequence.

    or

    • In the project Panel, drag your video to the new article . This will create a sequence that best matches your clips properties.

    Hello

    I'm trying to follow the steps described in the following link:

    How to set the Date and time on a remote target in Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX)?

    It is said

    The software on the target currently supports only the time zoneand deletes the old files?

    I need set the date and time

    and remove all the old unwanted files

    the calendar was gray does not allow me to change the current date.

    Anyone know how to change

    Hi all!

    According to this the below Knowledge Base article, Remote Configuration System Support must be installed on the target for time settings to change in MAX.

    http://digital.NI.com/public.nsf/allkb/FAB0EC4D6E5EE0F386257738005733A3?OpenDocument&MeTC=max_MAXDat...

    If you don't know what version of the system supported remote Configuration software that you have installed on your device target, it is likely that it is not yet installed. Add this software by clicking below your target to the MAX software option and selecting "Add/Remove Software". This is where you will install the System Configuration Remote Support software.

  • I didt create a disk recovery for windows 7 Home premium, and I lost the original and the recovery partition

    I didt create a disk recovery for windows 7 Home premium and I lost the original and the recovery partition, but I have still the product key and the same laptop that was originally installed with windows 7 copy and now im turning my laptop with a fake copy, how to restore the original copy of windows 7?

    Hello

    You have certainly reduced your options

    The only legal Windows 7 download available is now Microsoft, as Microsoft has stopped DigitalRiver Windows 7 ISO downloads.

    http://www.Microsoft.com/en-us/software-recovery

    But Microsoft only provides these downloads for Windows 7 keys to selling product at retail, not preinstalled OEM product keys (Dell, HP, etc.).

    As you have licensed preinstalled OEM (Dell, HP, etc.), contact the manufacturer of your computer to order recovery media that they need to provide for a fee, if they still have them available.

    Or you can also borrow the same exact retail edition DVD of Windows 7 and use your product key to reinstall.

    See you soon.
