WZZZ has the solution.


You can request a rebuild of this cache by issuing the command:

sudo update_dyld_shared_cache

You can also do the following, which will force a rebuild even if the system thinks everything is up to date:

sudo update_dyld_shared_cache -force

Then reboot.

Apple – Support – Discussions – iphoto doesnt work ….  Terence Devlin solution worked!

To re-install iPhoto

1. Put the in the trash (Drag it from your Applications Folder to the trash)
2. Go to HD/Library/Receipts and remove any pkg file there with iPhoto in the name. On 10.6 those receipts may be found in the Finder using the Go menu and selecting Go To Folder

In the resulting window type


3. Re-install.

If you purchased an iLife Disk, then iPhoto is on it.

If iPhoto was installed on your Mac when you go it then it’s on the System Restore disks that came with your Mac. Insert the first one and opt to ‘Install Bundled Applications Only.

Apple – Support – Discussions – Every reboot Library is corrupted ….  Katrina S has the solution.

Some other software is probably conflicting with itunes saving its database.
As a workaround, start saving the ITL file in another folder before you restart your laptop. Create a new special folder just for this, something like C:\iTunesBackup. Better yet, put it on a USB thumb drive. After the reboot, you can copy it back to the correct place.
(side note: I back this file up weekly, more often if I have done a lot of additions/editing in itunes, and ALWAYS before an itunes update. I have 5 years of ratings, play counts, and play lists I do NOT want to lose)
Then it is up to you to find what software conflicts with itunes. Some programs posted here have been
IO bits
Windows Live One Care
Uniblue Speed up my PC

That is a short list. There are dozens of programs that could be doing this, and we don’t know what you have installed.

But basically, you need to tell whatever software it is, to not scan or monitor the itunes library ITL file or even this entire folder:

C:\Users\ username \Music\iTunes

iPhone 4 iTunes Unknown Sync Error 13019 …

Apple – Support – Discussions – iPhone 4 iTunes Unknown Sync Error 13019 ….  According to krisvannest the solution is:

I also experienced this error, but didn’t want to delete my voice memos so went this route:

(1) opened iTunes
(2) clicked Music
(3) searched for Voice Memos
(4) right-clicked on one Voice Memo and chose Show in Finder
(5) right-clicked my Voice Memos folder (in Finder) and chose “compress” to make backup
(6) back in iTunes, I re-ordered my Voice Memos by length… with the idea that the same length ones might be duplicats… then played same-length ones back-to-back to make sure they were duplicates and deleted the 2nd (or sometimes more) duplicated file

Of course then (after!) I found the following command in iTunes that can probably more reliably display dups, and you may be able to delete by playing back-to-back to confirm:


BTW I also found similar info at following link, not sure how accurate/source but seemed to corroborate what others posted here/above:

Great tutorial and lots of discussion about this process. Nice work!

How to move your iTunes library from PC to Mac Introduction Today I have been looking around the Web for tutorials about how to move my iTunes library from the old PC to the new Mac.
