How to Share Your iPhoto Library From Networked Storage MacLife. Nice writeup. Easy to follow if you need to have this functionality.
Apple – Support – Discussions – iphoto doesnt work …. Terence Devlin solution worked!
1. Put the iPhoto.app 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
If you purchased an iLife Disk, then iPhoto is on it.
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
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
Apple – Support – Discussions – iPhone 4 iTunes Unknown Sync Error 13019 …. According to krisvannest the solution is:
(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:
(7) chose FILE/DISPLAY DUPLICATES
BTW I also found similar info at following link, not sure how accurate/source but seemed to corroborate what others posted here/above:
Clever. Great find!
Fun info about how old technology compares against current technology.
