iTunes plays the songs back to artists in descending year sorting


I used iTunes in the view of artists, since this version is released, I love the section recently added to the list of artists.

Today, I changed the order albums are presented within the artist, before it has been shown by year in ascending order (from oldest to newest), now I wanted to show them first the most recent album (descending order), so I changed this setting.

When I started playing an album songs in the next room go back, as expected. If I started to play the last song from an album, he would go with the song of last second and so on. Similarly, if I started playing the first song from an album, the next song would be the last song of the album more old (he goes to the rear in the titles of an album, but forward in order of the album).

Here is an image showing the behavior.

  • iTunes crashes after playing the song for about 30 seconds


    I have a problem, I'm fighting currently to solve - iTunes iTunes crashes after playing the song for about 30 seconds.

    I already tried things:

    (2) reinstalled iTunes - not worked;

    (3) removed freshly installed Bitdefender Antivirus for Mac - did not help.

    Can you help me please?


    It seems that your iTunes software seems to be stop unexpectedly when you play the music back after about 30 seconds or more. First, I would check to see if there are errors on the disc that need repair:

    Disk utility (El Capitan): a disc repair

    Once the repair and verification done go ahead and test the issue again. If that fixes it, then great! If this is not the case, however, I would then remove third-party plug-ins that may interfere with the operation of iTunes:

    Test with iTunes plug-ins removed.

    • Quit iTunes.
    • Mac OS X:
      • ~/Library/iTunes/iTunes Plug-ins(The "~" represents your home folder)
      • /Library/iTunes/iTunes Plug-ins
    • If all the files in this folder, move it to the desktop temporarily.
    • Open iTunes and test to see if the problem is resolved. If so, you can leave these plug-ins removed iTunes. If you want to reuse these iTunes plug-ins, check with the supplier of iTunes plug-ins to see if updates are available.

    From: iTunes: may crash when you plug in the iPhone, iPad or iPod touch

    If the problem is still there after removing the plugins or there is none to remove, then you must then create a new library, add content to it and see if the problem persists it:

    Open a different iTunes library file or create a


    1. If iTunes is running, quit iTunes.
    2. Hold down the Option key when you open iTunes.
    3. You will see a message that says choose iTunes library. Depending on what you want to do, choose Create or choose library.

    Now if the problem is still not resolved then you can create a new user admin on your computer and test it there too well?

    OS X El Capitan: set up users on your Mac.

    Add a user

    1. Choose the Apple menu > System Preferences, and then click users and groups.

    2. Click on the lock icon to unlock, then enter an administrator name and password.

    3. Click on the button Add below the list of users.

    4. On the pop-up menu click new account, and then choose a user type.

    • Administrator: An administrator can add and manage other users, install applications, and change the settings. The new user that you create when you set up your Mac is an administrator. Your Mac can have multiple administrators. You can create new ones and convert standard users to administrators. Don't set up the automatic connection to an administrator. If you do, someone could simply restart your Mac and access with administrator privileges. To secure your Mac, don't share administrator names and passwords.

  • Enter a display name for the new user. An account name is automatically generated. To use a different account name, enter it now, you can't change it later.

  • Enter a password for the user, and then enter again to verify. Using an index of password is recommended to help the user remember the password.

  • Click on create user.

  • The result of the new user will determine what we then so let us know how it goes! Thank you for using communities of Apple Support.

  • If I change a file name in my ITunes library, iTunes will find changed leadership and play the song?

    I'm trying to back up my iTunes files, but my classical music has too long file names?  If I abbreviate the names of file, iTunes will find these files and play the songs? Also, what is the best way to change a name of file to an album at the same time?

    I'm not as familiar with the Windows platform, but if your main drive and the system supports file names that are long which is why your backup drive? You use a different format on your backup disk?

    How can I play the songs that are in the format of .wma on my PC using my Desktop Windows XP iTunes app?

    Thank you

    Hello Ristrawn,

    Thank you for your message.  There is no way to play .wma in the iTunes player.  You will need to find a 3rd party software to convert .wma to .mp3 files.  From there, you would be able to listen to the MP3 in the iTunes player.
    Please let us know if it did or did not help to solve your problem.

  • Alphabetically when you play the song on the album

    When I chose to play a song on an album, the next high feature shows the songs in alphabetical order, instead of the next song in the album. This happened after I updated iTunes to the latest version. 12.5.1

    How to disable this option? It's incredibly annoying.

    Thanks in advance.

    I have a similar problem... When you say alphabetical ordered song it is for your entire library or in the album. I have a problem where he plays the next alphabetical song in my library...

    If I have:

    (a) play a song and let it run all the way, the next piece seems to be the next song in alphabetical order in my entire library regardless of the artist/album.

    (b) if I start a song playing and press the "skip" button, the next piece seems to be the next song in alphabetical order in my entire library regardless of the artist/album too.

    I turned random and stopped playing the song seems to have been fixed, as if the random parameter was reversed on is off and visa versa... Although random shouldn't be alphabetical?

  • There is no sound when I try to play the songs of desktop PCs.

    There is no sound when I try to play the songs in my library or radio.  The speakers are very well because I can play from iTunes radio on the internet and local music. I've deleted and reinstalled iTunes, restarted my computer and I know that the sound is turned on. Curiously, it seems that the song moving forward and does not in fact (the blue line streaming lights up blue when I select a song or an advance to the next song.

  • music 9 plays the song wrong iOS app

    I have an iPhone 6 s, version 64 GB running iOS 9.3.1.

    I found that very often when I play music in the music app, I'll try to select a song and instead to play this song, it will play the song under him, or the song two or three under where I selected. This isn't a question "you must have shuffle." It seems that other people have had this problem since iOS 7. Music force the application to quit and restart the phone seems to solve the problem for a while until he back randomly.

    There is nothing wrong with my touch screen, it works perfectly fine. The songs are there, I can play if I choose a song, two or three preceding that I want to play or if I ask Siri to play the song. At first, I thought maybe my phone somehow lose data from the music and the song to jump because he couldn't play, but this is obviously not the issue. If people had problems of this kind in the iOS 7 I would have thought by iOS 9.3.1 it was something that's been fixed now.

    Anyone else have any ideas? It's really annoying.

    After some research, I found that somehow the shuffle function has something to do with this problem because it disappears if I turn off shuffle. However, while shuffle is on and sat for a while, he will refuse to play the song as I type, rather play another song usually songs, that I hit the underside of the. If I disable the shuffle, the problem goes away for a while, even though I turn on shuffle immediately. But eventually the phone will not play the song that I select. It's the strangest thing I've seen my phone so far.

  • Play the songs of non-iPhone to Macbook Pro via A2DP


    I've only had my macbook pro for 3 days and I love it! Now, I want to play my songs for Xperia Z2 speaker of my Macbook Pro via Bluetooth A2DP profile. Is it possible to do it without using any apps?

    In terms of Xperia, I could "throw" my songs to the Macbook Pro, but I do not know how. I have no intention to play the songs on my iTunes my Xperia phone via bluetooth-controlled.

    Any suggestions or advice is very welcoming. Thanks in advance!

    In theory, it is possible, although I never did. First step would be to pair your Xperia Z2 to your MacBook pro via bluetooth. The icon located at the top of your screen by the date and time, just after the wifi icon. You may need to activate bluetooth on your Z2. Check out this app for your phone that promises easy streaming


    That's all that I have for now

  • Why Windows Media Player plays the song wrong when I click it in a playlist?

    I did a huge selection automatically (with 145 songs) with five-star is Windows Media Player 12 in Windows 7 on my Dell XPS L702X.

    So, let's say that I want to hear "Everybody Hurts [edit]" r.e.m. I click on n, it starts WMP play "Slips through my fingers" by Agneta Fältskog!
    He plays another song which is 24 positions above!
    At first, it used only for touch me when I was sorting the songs in the playlist by Genre, Album, year, etc... But now, even with the contributing artist, he played another song!
    The only way for her to play the song I want is with some navigation arrow keys or when I clicked on the playlist and I'd get a unsorted list. With the unsorted list, I find the song.
    It's a difficult problem, but I have a temporary solution. But please try to find an answer!
    EDIT: now at random. Unsorted perspective will give me wrong songs and the artist's view contributing sort will give me good music! What a mix! Say that it is a "re - Mix"!

  • Double click in iTunes don't play the song.  Still next song plays.


    I have iTunes on an iMac running 10.10.5 Yosemite.  I have a strange problem where in iTunes, I double-click on a particular song, but the next time song.  The next song played depends on whether or not I shuffle defined or not.  If shuffle is set, the next song is random.  If shuffle is not defined, then this is the next song in the album.  I can double click on any other song in any list, and it will play.  It's the only song that I found that will not play.  Still, it climbs to the next song.  I can be in a playlist.  I can be in 'my music '.  When I double-click on this song, always plays the next song.  A strange thing happened when I was downloading this album on the iTunes store.  My iMac has encountered an unexpected error and restarted itself.  When I logged in, things are although had downloaded all the songs.  But I'm running into this issue with this one song.  This is the first song in the album.  Any ideas would be appreciated.  Thank you very much.

    Hello Wilyd,

    I understand that you have a problem with the first song on the album that you downloaded from the iTunes Store.  The best way to solve the problem is to remove the song and it download on the iTunes Store.  If the second attempt not only success, so I'll include a link to the iTunes Store Support team so that they could watch that particular file.   Here is the information you need:
