Customer Question
In iTunes, I now have...
In iTunes, I now have lots of duplicates. My playlists also contain many songs with the ! designation. I need to devise a strategy for printing out problems (like a complete listing of playlists), then erase/merge duplicate and restore the playlists. The best would be if there is a merge function which would include playlist ties. Oddly, the unfindable songs are still playable on my iPod. Is there a way to transfer them back to the computer?

Hi,

 

Yes you can transfer back them to computer, there are two ways:

1. Using a software like copytrans: http://www.copytrans.net/

2. Without using any software: http://lifehacker.com/105256/how-to-copy-songs-from-your-ipod-to-your-pc or

Hope this helps, let me know if you have further questions.

This is not an answer to my question. I asked you the following:

 

1. How can I effieciently print out lists of my playlists? I have about 50 of them and don't want to print them one at a time.

2. Is it possible to merge duplicate songs, maintaining the existing linkages to playlists?

 

I would be willing to purchase special software to aid me in these tasks as long as it is guaranteed to work. I have about 5,000 songs and many of them are duplicates and triplicates.

Sorry but you asked "Is there a way to transfer them back to the computer? ", thats what I answered. I am opting out and releasing it for other experts.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
