I'm trying to import my iTunes library into Banshee. Unfortunately, I'm getting a message on a number of tracks that says "Unable to map iTunes URI to local URI."

It seems to be showing up on entire albums rather than random individual tracks.

What does it mean and how do I fix it?

Hello, just throwing this out to you as a comment because I don't use Banshee or iTunes. So, I don't feel like I'm an authority on this but this person got the same error message as you and determined that Banshee didn't have the correct path to the music files. He was able to correct that problem and Banshee was then able to locate his music. Well, hopefully this helps you out! –  matt davis Oct 5 '12 at 21:41

@jimirings Thanks for notifying me. Glad I could help even though I have no idea what I'm talking about! I saw the post referred to xml so I guess you had to edit a config file? –  matt davis Oct 10 '12 at 14:46

I don't use Banshee or iTunes, so I don't feel like I'm an authority on this but check this forum post. This person got the same error message as you and determined that Banshee didn't have the correct path to the music files. He was able to correct that problem and Banshee was then able to locate his music. Well, hopefully this helps you out!

That was indeed the problem. Specifically, the capitalization (or lack thereof) of certain letters. Interestingly enough, I had other tracks with an incorrect path that showed an error message of "File does not exist." –  jimirings Oct 11 '12 at 18:03
