F8660_fbz_button[type="button"]:active, .ezoic-wrapper . The result was 1 new i Tunes Media folder tree with an incomplete collection. option from the File menu, checked "Consolidate Files", (note: the "Reorganize folder..." is greyed out due to my multiple attempts to currently consolidate my library.) 4. I went into my external HDD, into F: Consolidated Music Library, and the i Tunes Media folder was there. However, not all my files were copied into the newly-created folder. Re-did steps 1-4 after deleting the newly-created i Tunes Media folder. : I just want to have all of my music consolidated in one place so that I can easily transfer my collection and playlists (playlist data saved already on external HDD) to i Tunes on my new Windows 8.1 computer.My solution to this was to back-up my old, pre-consolidation i Tunes library and use both the newly-created i Tunes Media Folder in conjunction with my backed-up i Tunes library. I want to avoid using the copied libraries mentioned in the "Background" portion of my inquiry.I do radio shows, sporting events, parties, parades, and yes, weddings.
I’ve saved my playlist from every gig I’ve ever had.
The result was having i Tunes read all my music from 2 separate locations. i Tunes and Traktor read my music from both locations with ease, no issues. Changed i Tunes Media folder location to F: Consolidated Music Library , aka a specified folder on my external HDD. Checked the boxes for "Keep i Tunes Media folder organized" & "Copy files to i Tunes Media folder when adding to library". The exclamation points on all my music worries me because I know that if I attempt to consolidate again, I understand that nothing will be copied if i Tunes cannot locate any of the music. Apple is EXTREMELY finicky with their data-transfer solutions, I simply cannot risk losing my data by relying on their support.
