Create multiple iTunes profiles

If you have several devices, then when you connect to iTunes, the content (programs, games) of the device that was last synchronized will be displayed. If you connect another device, then the synchronized programs will be programs from another device. How not to mix those programs / games with programs / games of another device and not to delete all the content in one fell swoop? Easy...
There is an item in the fake, but there is no description of how to create a media library.

There should be nothing in the program field before synchronization. If there are programs from the iPad, which has just been synchronized, then something is done wrong. If in this case, press the sync, then iTunes will want to completely clear this iPhone and say "Do you really want to remove all programs and install new ones?" ...Strictly deny this action .
How to get around the problem with the removal of programs, we read at the bottom of this topic.*
The correct result should be two profiles. The iPhone was last synced, so when you connect the iPad to iTunes, the programs and games of that iPhone will be shown. To avoid this, we connect the iPad, launch iTunes in the computer, immediately press Shift and see the familiar window.
We press "Choose ".

When you sync, iTunes deletes applications installed via Installous.

The reasons :
- Included item in Installous - Settings - iTunes Sync.
- when synchronizing in the iTunes window, which asked about the transfer of programs from the iPad, it was set to "Do not ask again."
We win the disease .
1. Turn off auto-sync - uncheck the item "Sync" in the "Programs" tab in iTunes.
2. Turn off iTunes Sync in Installous settings.
3. We reset iTunes warnings: we connect iPad ->In the list of devices on the left, click on it with the right mouse button ->Reset alerts.
If everything is done correctly, then there will be no more confusion.
If something is wrong and the message appears again, then click to cancel the synchronization and check whether you are in the correct profile! Maybe go to the profile of the iPhone with the device iPad. Or right-click on the name of the device (left in the column) - Transfer purchases.

Sort content in iTunes

Total information
With iTunes, you can conveniently organize your library for quick navigation through it. The program uses content ordering system by tags, playlists, smart playlists, playlist folders.
Each file has its own set of data, and it is for this data that further navigation is possible.

What to donot necessary(Not recommended).
  • No need to try to manage iTunes files from the file manager. This may disrupt their structure and data. All data in the library is in the iTunes Library.itl database, which is located in the iTunes library.
  • No need to add files to the library by dragging them from any folder into the program. At the same time, they can be saved not in the iTunes Media folder, and accordingly, it will be much more difficult to manage them. If such actions were carried out earlier, go toFile ->Media Library ->Organize a media library ->Collect files.

Migrate content to iTunes library
To copy a file from your library on your computer to your iTunes library, go to Settings:
Windows : Edit ->Settings ->Additionally.
Mac : iTunes ->Settings ->Additionally.
And enable these options:
Attached Image

Tags and work with them
Each file in iTunes is assigned a huge number of various parameters by which files can later be organized. Some of them are placed on the top panel of the library:
Attached Image

Here is the complete list:
Attached Image

Most likely, your media library before adding to iTunes was not organized by tags. Adding tags can be done:
Manually . To do this, select the name of the song, right-click, go to Details. There you can fill in all possible information:
Attached Image

Automatically . To do this, you need to use third-party programs:

Sort and search
Sorting occurs as in most file managers - by clicking on the desired tag. Sorting can be in ascending or descending order.
Search is carried out through the corresponding iTunes window:
Attached Image

Playlists are the same folders in a regular file manager. They are created by the user. You can create a playlist in several ways:
  • Through the menuFile ->New ->Playlist.
  • After selecting several tracks and moving to the menuFile ->New ->Playlist of selected.

To add music to the playlist:
  • Select the file, right-click and click "Add to playlist".
  • Drag the file to the playlist (when you start dragging, the playlist menu will open on the side)

In the playlist can be both individual songs, and entire playlists (that is, nesting is supported).When you import a separate folder from the computer, it automatically turns into a playlist.

Playlist folders:
To add music from specific playlists, a playlist folder is created (File ->New ->Playlist folder). Only playlists or other folders can be added to the folder.

Thus, thanks to the system of folders and playlists, you can create a file system familiar to many users without losing the ability to sort by tags.

Smart playlists
Smart playlists, like Smart Folders in OS X, is a fixed set of filters by which you can instantly find the necessary songs.
To create such a playlist, go toFile ->New ->Smart playlist.
Attached Image

Consider all the parameters of the playlist:
Attached Image

  • 1 - the conditions under which the songs will be added to the playlist. All conditions are not tag based - a tag must contain a specific set of characters or characters that the user enters.
  • 2 - The maximum number of files in the playlist, how these files will be selected (if the maximum number is greater than the set).
  • 3 - additional parameters (selection only from previously selected objects and the ability to add to the playlist without notifying the user.
