Getting A New iPad 3? Fix Your iTunes Music Before Syncing To Your New iPad 3

If you’re planning on getting the new iPad 3 which is going to be announced soon then you need to know about a couple of things before making the purchase of the iPad 3. You will be able to sync your awesome music collection to your new iPad 3 and unfortunately if your iTunes Music Library is messy, the messy music will be transferred over to your new iPad 3 and this will make it very difficult to enjoy your music on the go with your iPad 3. So it’s highly recommended to fix your iTunes music library prior to syncing to your new iPad 3 so that you will enjoy your music even more on your iPad 3.

A messy iTunes Library means songs that are duplicates, songs missing album cover artwork, music that doesn’t have important song details like artists names, album names, genres, years and more, or songs that are misspelled. These problems exist in iTunes music libraries because most of the time people just import the music into their libraries without thinking of a master procedure of how to import the music and later things get out of hand in your iTunes music library especially if there are too many songs imported. So when this is the case the messyness gets transferred over to your iPad 3 or other iDevice when you sync.

Duplicate Songs

Duplicate songs are if you have more than one mp3 of the same song in your library. Duplicate songs are caused if you have imported an album more than once usually but most of the time duplicates appear because you have the same song in your library from different albums. Those could be greatest hits albums, compilations, singles and the actual album the song comes from. And sometimes you might have received special compilations made from your friends and relatives and if they were imported into iTunes then you could end up having some songs in iTunes more than 5 times. If that’s the case all those extra mp3s are taking up crucial hard drive space that you can use for other songs. Also if you’re syncing all songs from artists to your new iPad 3 that means all those duplicates will sync along and take up the hard drive space on your new iPad 3. See photos below (click to enlarge).

When my Depeche Mode duplicate songs were removed my iTunes library dropped almost a gigabyte of music. It removed almost 100 duplicates from my entire Depeche Mode music collection. This is nice! If you sync your entire Depeche Mode collection to your new iPad 3 then you also will be syncing all those duplicates that you really do not need to have in your iTunes library. Remove the iTunes duplicates now (click the Rinse logo below) with a powerful software before syncing to the iPad 3!

Album Cover Artwork

If you’ve downloaded music from the iTunes Music Store then most likely you’ll have the album cover artwork attached to your music but if you’ve imported your music from CDs then most likely you do not have album covers to your music. And if you have a ton of awesome music imported into iTunes then you should have the awesome album covers artwork along with your awesome music. Later when you sync this awesome music to your new iPad 3 you’ll sync the music without the awesome album cover artwork. What good is an iPad 3 without beautiful album cover artwork? Not good at all. See photos below.

Fix your iTunes music automatically with this powerful software program.

Missing Song Information

When you started loading up your entire music collection (CDs) into iTunes you didn’t realize that you had to be connected to the internet. Because when you were not connected to internet, iTunes didn’t look up the correct CD information and when you imported the music into iTunes you imported music without correct song information. In fact without any song information. Because of this you have songs in iTunes missing crucial information such as missing artists names, missing album names, missing genres, missing years and so on. If you don’t have this important song metadata information in your iTunes then it makes it very difficult to find them and organize them and later sync them to your new iPad 3. There’s a powerful iTunes fixer and organizer tool that can correct this problem for you automatically. So prior to syncing your music to your new iPad 3 run the most powerful iTunes fixer and organizer program (click the Rinse logo below) so that it finds and loads up the correct music information in your iTunes so that when you sync your new iPad 3 you will be able to find your songs in your iPad 3 easily.

Misspellings

Most iTunes libraries are full of misspelled and wrongly named song information and data. This is not good because it makes things very difficult to organize and later sync to your iDevices such as the new iPad 3. Fixing this misspellings by hand takes too long and is a very tedious task. If the iTunes library is too big with hundreds and thousands of songs it makes it take very very long. Luckily there is tool to fix this misspellings problem in iTunes. Just run the software program finds misspellings and wrongly spelled song name, artist name, album name and genre information and fixes it automatically so that you can organize your music much easier and sync the correct music to your iDevices such as the iPad 3 or iPhone or iPod.

Fix iTunes: How To Search, Browse And Sort Music In iTunes

You have ripped or imported all of your CDs into your iTunes music library. You also buy music from the iTunes music store in addition to buying books, movies, podcasts and more and you are addicted to how convenient it is to buy media at your fingertips. So keep adding and adding more media into your iTunes library and keep forgetting where to search and find the music you imported last week or movies you downloaded 2 months ago. So it’s serious time to learn how to organize your media in your iTunes library to make it easier to find them.

Your iTunes music library can hold an infinite amount of songs, movies, books and more but it really depends on how much space you have on your computers hard drive if that’s where you have the files stored or it depends on how much space is on your external hard drive if that’s where you have your media or songs imported to. I prefer the external hard drive, as that’s where I have my iTunes save mostly music (168, 463 mp3s) on a 2 TB (terabytes) size hard drive, which is ¾ full! But if you have a quarter of the amount of files as I do it’s still difficult to organize it since you are dealing with hundreds and thousands of songs. If your iTunes library is increasing at a rapid rate then it’s time to think about organizing it so that it makes it easy to find your music or other media quicker. If iTunes is not organized then even finding a very recognizable song like Vogue by Madonna will be difficult.

How To Browse Your iTunes Library Media

When you have iTunes launched, on the left hand panel (see photo below) you will see options such as Music, Movies, TV Shows, Radio (see photo below)

as well as options for Podcasts, Books, Apps and Ringtones which you can select to either display or not display by going to Edit > Preferences on a Windows computer or iTunes > Preferences on a Mac. Make sure the General Tab is highlighted (see photo below) and pick and choose, select and or deselect the different options you want on or off then save to accept those changes.

When you’ve selected MUSIC basically you’ll be seeing the music that you have imported into iTunes or purchased music from the iTunes Store. When you’ve selected MOVIES on the left panel of selections (see photo above) you’ll be seeing the movies you’ve purchased and downloaded from the iTunes Store. Now if you don’t have any movies then you wont see anything in there. And the same goes with TV SHOWS, PODCASTS, BOOKS, APPS, RINGTONES and so on. Each selection will display that particular media that you have available in your iTunes.  So we’ll be focusing on these section and mostly MUSIC because iTunes is mostly for music but you have the options of adding additional media that you can enjoy on the computer or take with you on any iDevice such as the iPhone, iPad or iPod!

When you have selected MUSIC you can browse all your music using four different browse modes. (see picture below)

Cover Flow Mode (my favorite – far right button) allows you to browse through your music with the album covers nice and large. It helps to have your album covers added to all your music. If you’re looking for an automatic album cover adder check this out software program that adds all the album covers to all your music automatically. Because what’s the point of the Cover Flow Mode if you don’t have any album covers to look at? But having the album covers is not just for the Cover Flow Mode it works for viewing your songs in every mode. It just helps to have those beautiful album covers present in your music in iTunes. (see picture below)

Grid Mode (next to the Cover Flow Mode button) allows you to browse through your music as just album covers just as quick thumbnails you can click on and listen to. Each song will have it’s own album cover thumbnail that you can click on. You can change the view here and view the music as Artists as it’s defaulted to Albums and also have options to view Genres and Composers.

Album List Mode shows your music sorted by album along with the album cover art as a small thumbnail. This unfortunately is my least favorite mode In iTunes.

List Mode is your default view mode in iTunes and basically it lists all songs in a row and you can view/sort your music as albums, by dates, by artists, by genre’s, by bit rate, by date added or date modified, track number, in alphabetical order and so on. It’s my favorite browsing mode and I use it most because Cover Flow Mode even though I love slows down the computer with my quantity of songs.

So this is it you can start enjoying your music however you want using iTunes, the most advance music player application around.

iTunes Duplicate Remover – Automatically Free Up Gigabytes Of Hard Drive Space!

If you’ve stumbled and have gotten frustrated while playing songs in your iTunes because you keep running into the same songs over and over again then there’s certainly a very nice solution to take care of that problem instantly and automatically. It’s a certified, industry recognized software program that’s hands down the best iTunes Duplicate Remover around ever!

You may have run into a built in solution in iTunes that finds and recognizes all the duplicate songs in iTunes but to be honest it’s not something I would recommend as it’s not only time consuming to go through the list and because it does not remove the duplicate songs in iTunes automatically. On top of that it’s not so efficient in doing the task of finding the duplicate songs in the iTunes music library.

It’s such a tedious task of going through and manually removing and deleting those unwanted duplicate songs from the music lover’s iTunes song library.  And with our very busy lives these days who’s got the time to sit through and recognize which duplicate song to remove and which duplicate song to keep. If your iTunes library is quite huge then it’s even more of a problem of sitting through and sifting the songs that are duplicates and keeping the good ones and deleting the iTunes duplicates that need to be deleted!

If your computers hard drive is also on the brink of filling up because of duplicate songs then the iTunes Duplicate Remover is the solution.

Duplicate iTunes Songs Problem gets worse w/iDevices like iPhone, iPod and iPad!

Because we are auto adding songs to our iDevices such as our iPhones our iPods and our iPads when duplicate songs are in the iTunes library then they will most certainly end up in our iDevices as well and fill up the iDevices much quicker. When they are out of the main iTunes library on the computer they wont end up on our iPhones, iPods and iPads! And because we can add many more songs and have more music to enjoy on the go.

How Does iTunes Duplicate Remover Work?

iTunes Duplicate Remover scans the entire iTunes music library and marks all the duplicates it finds. Depending on how many actual songs are in iTunes this may take a bit of time. It’s quicker for smaller iTunes libraries and slower for much larger libraries. If you have a really huge iTunes then set up and go do something rather than wait for it to finish. So once it’s ready it will, Compare Songs, by comparing the

-Name, Artist and Album

or

-Just Name and Artist (Your Choice)

Later … once it’s done that step:

When duplicate songs are found it will either keep the song with:

-The Higher Bitrate

or

The Longer Length (Your Choice)

Later again …

With each duplicate songs it finds:

-Remove it from iTunes Song Library

-Add “Duplicate” to it’s name so it’s easily found (Your Choice)

It’s as simple as that for the iTunes Duplicate Remover to work. You’ll be quickly on your way to a better iTunes!

Makes It Easier To Organize the iTunes Library With The iTunes Organizer That’s Built Into The iTunes Duplicate Remover.

Once the iTunes duplicates are removed you have more choices of organizing and fixing the library. It’s simple to use the program again and it’s all automated. Best of all the hundreds and hundreds of useless genres that your music is tagged with can be condensed down to only the main genres that are in existence and the ones you really want and make sense to you. For example Beats can become Hip-Hop, Shoegaze can become Alternative or Rock and so on. Once this is done it’s very easy to organize your genres and find the songs because now your albums or songs marked beats which should have all along been tagged Hip-Hop are in Hip-Hop and when you can create smart folders those songs will be in the Hip-Hop smart folder and not be left out. Or when you change Shoegaze to Alternative and you create an Alternative Smart Playlist those songs marked Shoegaze will end up in your Alternative playlist. So just consolidate those unwanted genres and get your iTunes organized to enjoy it even more.
