transfer the music library (not bought) one Apple ID to another

DH has used my iTunes/AppleID account download her CD to the Mac, and then on his iPod.  He recently got an iPhone with its own AppleID.

We would like to have the iPod and put all his music not purchased on his new iPhone with its new AppleID.  How can I transfer his playlist of music not bought at its new Apple ID?

Whenever I have to 'create' a new iTunes Library, even when I'm out of iTunes, it automatically opens with all my music and my iPhone connects via WiFi.


DH has used my iTunes/AppleID account to download her CD on Mac

In fact, he was using your iTunes library, not your iTunes account or Apple ID.  When you import the songs from the music CD, your Apple ID is not involved.

Is "DH", the initials of the other user?  If DH does not have its own computer, create a new user account on shared Mac.  You can do this in the Preferences system users & groups window.  If you are the primary user, you can make DH user Standard (not administrator) account.  In this way, the Admin authorization ("your authorization") is necessary to make changes to the system for the Mac.  Log out of your user account and have DH, sign in to his new account user and things together upwards to use his Apple ID.  When it runs iTunes in this new user account, it's HIS iTunes library, not your library.

Return to your user account, scrunch a new folder (on the desktop) and name it something like the Songs of DH (or whatever you want).  In the window iTunes (with your normal iTunes library), use some view is more convenient to show your library iTunes music.  Dragged the songs of DH of the iTunes window to this new folder on the desktop.  For example, if these songs from music CD, using the view Albums can be more convenient, because you can drag entire albums in the folder.  iTunes copy the song files in the folder of Songs DH .

Once the file has all his songs, copy it to a shared location.  You can use the folder users / shared , which is accessible from two user accounts.  Have DH to connect to his user account.

NOTE: You can enable the fast user switch to keep the two users connected at the same time, to save time when switching.  Password is still required to switch between user accounts, but you can ignore the disconnection and crosses the login screen.

Drag the DH songs folder from the shared location and drop onto the iTunes window, to add songs from the iTunes library.  OR, in the iTunes menu bar, use the command file-> add to library , and select the folder of Songs of DH .  Once the songs in its iTunes library, connect the iPhone and set up the synchronization as you wish.

  • Question about the music library to iCloud (music Apple) and iTunes on mac

    Download I m just of my iTunes in the music library of iCloud library. Since I was afraid that my library of 40000 + titles could get corrupted or metadata could be changed by apple, I downloaded the files from a 'second' machine (macbook) - just to be on the safe side and keep my iTunes library local main on my iMac intact by iCloud (for the moment).

    Now everything seems fine with iCloud music library, but after all the titles/songs are in iCloud now, what happens if I disable the library iCloud music on the 'second' machine and Activate the library iCloud music on my main machine (iMac), which has the same local as my second machine iTunes library? (= the same local iTunes library, which has been already downloaded?)

    ICloud/iTunes will recognize that all songs/files are already uploaded to the music library iCloud and doe 'nothing', or download will process all over again and will lead to 'double' all the files/songs in iCloud?

    The same question arises if we restore iTunes library local on a mac from a backup + switches on iCloud music library a second time... will be iTunes + icloud music library download all the files again or not?

    Unless something is wrong, it should recognize and not duplicate.

  • Bought the new computer windows 10, itunes has changed location of support for external hard drive. The music does not appear in itunes.


    Changing the iTunes media folder location setting affects only where new additions to your library will be stored.  To use a disk external drive to store your library complete (and assuming that you have access to the original data of the library on an old computer) you must copy the iTunes folder, by default in C:\Users\username\Music, on the external drive - structure library and its records should be like this:

    The hold button SHIFT DOWN when you start iTunes and when you see this message:

    Click choose a library... then find and select the iTunes Library.itl in iTunes on your external drive folder.

    I don't know if it just happens to me, but whenever I try to change the current view of my music on the display list, my iTunes (version on a Mac) will not stop loading the library iCloud, which I do not have access because I no longer member of Apple's music (and don't plan to be anytime soon). It remains just try to connect to the music library to iCloud and me without access to my music. The only way I can do this loading screen go away is to exit the application. Does anyone know how to fix this?

  • "the file is not found" after apple update.

    "the file is not found" after apple update.  Before the update, I've drag only the pictures I want to edit iPhoto to lightroom and change them.  However, after I upgraded apple iPhoto photos, there is no connection between my modified pictures and lightroom and I get the above message. I know where the photos are (in the content of the packaging of my iPhoto library).  However, when I try to find photos by clicking on the exclamation mark (on the thumbnail of the photo) which means that the photo can be found, I can't open the iPhoto package content.  does anyone have a solution?

    I recommend that remove you the Photos app entirely.

    File > PlugIn options... > import from iPhoto.

    However. If you want to continue to manage with Photos AND Lightroom, you can create an alias of the Masters record (in the package contents) and place it in a suitable place. Lightroom will be able to see this file in the import dialog box.

    Locate one of the images that is missing and it should be able to locate the others.
