I have a Mac mini running Mavericks. 8 gig ram which I am setting up as a media centre but iTunes keeps pausing every 6 -8 seconds. I have tried other players that read my iTunes library and they work. I have a large collection of 20,000 tracks so I want to use iTunes. Any ideas

No, not without more info. For starters, how full is the hard drive?

I'm a little unclear on whether you're saying this problem developer AFTER the Mac was "wiped and Mavericks loaded," or if you mean that since I wrote my last post you have done this. If the latter, did that solve the issue?

ITunes pausing

Hi it was a Mac mini I got from a friend, a 2011 i5 model. It was wiped before I got it and still had mountain lion on it. I upgraded it to Mavericks and upgraded the ram to 8 gig then loaded my music library. It was only after that I found the problem with iTunes pausing. I have loaded other media players that play the tracks fine but iTunes keeps pausing. Nothing else is running. I have checked to see if anything was hogging the processor but not that a could see. Occassionally when it pauses the beach ball starts spinning as if it is doing something but I can't see anything.

I have rebooted, verified the disk verified permissions etc but nothing solves it. I even did a recovery and reloaded the OS but still not solved.

Any ideas?
