  1. Before you spend $800 or more, I would try to take it to Apple, or an Apple Certified Macintosh Technician, to get it checked out before buying a new one.
  2. I will give that a try, Kirk, and see how it goes. Any help is worth a try. Thanks!
  3. It's probably trying to look at both for booting. I would take out the card, reboot and make sure the internal SSD works before using the card. It really doesn't seem as thought the card is working. Eventually, you will have to have your computer checked out by an Apple support or another expert.
  4. Why use an SDcard, instead of an external SSD? https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Portable-MU-PA250B-AM-Alluring/dp/B073H552FK/ref=sr_1_8?keywords=ssd&qid=1582945609&refinements=p_89%3ASamsung%2Cp_n_feature_keywords_five_browse-bin%3A7688214011&rnid=7688213011&s=pc&sr=1-8
  5. Yeah, I figured as much, but was hoping beyond hope… With the many different versions of some albums, and artists redoing someone else’s work, I wish Apple would make it easier to search. Provide some advanced options that would allow us to narrow down the search. When searching for Prince, the Purple One, I get Will Smith, Prince Royce and a bunch of stuff from other “Princes.” Hence, my gradual move away from iTunes (uh, sorry, Music) – JRiver Media Center, qobuz and an external drive.
  6. For iTunes, there was a script called iTunes PowerSearch. Does one exist for the Music app? I am trying to find particular remixes, but the search on Music is very clunky — at its best! (I did check Doug's AppleScripts, but didn't find anything similar.)
  7. I think Doug might be on to something. I restored and synced, but I still see nothing. I can easily play the music on the iPod, though.
  8. Today, I had some extra time to kill. I spent some of the time syncing an iPod shuffle to Music. While Music told me the iPod software was up to date, it also allowed me to drag some music files to the iPod. (I did not use the Autofill function.) I don’t see them displayed when I look at my iPod under Devices on Music’s sidebar, but I did play them and they sounded as usual. Has anyone else experienced the same results?
  9. Hello Kirk I guess I am mostly there? I checked every box you suggested, but nothing seemed to work. I moved the actual music files to an external hard drive. Then, I deleted the plist files while keeping the boxes you suggested checked. I rebooted and I can now add files to the Music app and they are in the Music folder. However, the Files preferences still has not changed. Yeah, I am wondering if this might work itself out in the future or cause further issues. Thanks for the quick responses!

    Marked as "Read"

    I figured it out! I generally use the Safari Technology Preview browser, and that browser seems to be the issue. When I use Safari, the web site works as expected.
  11. It still stops at Media... Should I toss the plists and start over?
  12. wgscott, I meant that when I initially imported, I didn't have the second box checked. After reading Kirk's reply, I checked the second box as well as the first, and the file I attached previously was the result. For me it didn't work.
  13. Hello Chris, Once I read a post, and then, pick another post to read, I notice neither topic is marked as read. Is this a Catalina issue or a forum one?
  14. Kirk thanks for your response! When I try your recommendations, the Music folder I created remains empty. Within the Media folder,I see the Automatically Add to Music folder while the music files I added are still in their respective folders. The Music folder is there, but it remains empty. I have reindexed, rebooted, but nothing seems to work. Before I started adding files, I did check the Keep Music folder organized box, but not the Copy Files to Music Media Folder when adding to library box. Any other suggestions?
