OS X :: Syncing IPod Touch With Multiple Computers?
Sep 10, 2010
I have an aluminum Macbook, eMac and ipod touch. I would like to be able to have iCal and Address Book synced together so when I edit/change information on any of the three devices, the other two devices will be updated the next time it's synced with the ipod or computer. I do not want the music to be shared, because I'm trying to keep the eMac hard drive lean to keep it running as quickly as possible.
I have recently formatted my computer and put all my mp3s back on from my backup on time machine. I am now trying to transfer a playlist to my ipod touch but not all songs are syncing from the playlist? I have authorised the computer for my purchases. Any ideas?
I can't seem to find a way to continue to sync my iPod Touch to my Mac without it automatically syncing over the iPod's Safari bookmarks to my Safari on the computer. I want to keep this bookmarks separate but every time it still wants to sync the Safari data on the iPod to the Safari data on the Mac.
Is there an easy way to keep my ITunes libraries in between two computers (MacBook and IMac), and my iPhone in sync? I've been having a bit of trouble, particularly with my IPhone - if I'm on the road, and download new podcast episodes daily, and then get home at the end of the week and plug my IPhone into my iMac, rather than syncing the new podcast episodes to the IMac, the IPhone gets wiped out and only has the podcasts, songs, etc that were on the IMac. Is there any easy way to keep the libraries on the two computers and my IPhone synchronized?
Just upgraded to the iPhone OS 3.0 on my 1st gen iPod Touch and when I turn the volume up whilst it's in the iPod Hi-Fi, the volume dips when I've finished turning it up... When I push the volume up again the volume slider on the iPod touch then moves down to where it dipped.it's quite hard to explain! Basically, when I turn the volume up to 50%, the sound dips to 25%.... the slider still shows 50% until I press the volume up button and it would move the slider to 25%. (If I wanted to play my music at 50% I would have to turn it up to 75% and wait for it to dip to 50%!)I have reset the iPod touch and restored it but the problem still exists. OS 1.0 and 2.0 didn't have this problem. Does this happen to anyone else? Is there a solution?
I recently received a 15" Powerbook G4 with Leopard installed on it. I was trying to move some iTunes files when I realized that my 2nd Generation iPod Touch was not being recognized on the Desktop or Finder. The catch is that iTunes did know my iPod was hooked up. Anyone got any ideas on how i can make the iPod visible on desktop?
So i decided not to sell my free ipod touch, however my mbp won't recognize that i've plugged the ipod touch in. I spoke on the phone with applecare and was able to restore the touch but neither the laptop or itunes will even recognize it's there. However, applecare is closed now and i would really like to be able to use it for work tomorrow.
I know my usb ports work, i've tried 3 different cables, tried restarting the touch , the ipod touch charges but since it's new the startup screen telling me to plug it into the computer, is all i can access on the touch. I just updated itunes and restarted my mbp and still nothing.
When I plug in my Ipod touch, Itunes does not recognize it as a device. I can get the Ipod to charge and be recognized as a camera for iphoto, but nothing from itunes. My apps, that I previously had on itunes and my ipod are also missing. I've already tried all the trouble shooting tips?
Info: MacBook (13-inch Early 2008), Mac OS X (10.6.3), ipod touch, itunes
Can we run our applications from our iPod touch on our MacBook Pro? I have several games on my iPod I would like to be able to play on my MacBook. I tried looking them up on the app store on the computer, but they don't appear in the options list. Also I tried running straight from iTunes, but that also does not open the application.
Info: MacBook Pro, I am running the new version of Lion.
I have a brand new ipod touch running iOS 4, but I can't get pandora to keep playing music in the background. When the pandora app is opened and playing music, I hit the ipod touch button, the app closes, and the music stops playing. How do I make it play music in the background?
My iPod Touch only turns on when its docked on my radio/ipod dock but will immediately turn off as soon as I take it from it. It won't even turn on and sync when connected to my macbook. The iPod has never had battery problems or anything else wrong with it.
I was wondering if any of you iMovie experts could come up with a way to create the same effect of the 2nd generation ipod touch advert.I have iMovie '09 and need to create an advert for an iPhone for my school project. I was going to use the same sort of method but for things such as the phone and texting.
I bought Myst from the app store on my iPod last night, and when I plugged it into my computer, it attempted to sync Myst to it but it wouldn't make any progress. Was taking an impossible amount of time, so I canceled it. Now iTunes won't recognize it. I can't see it in Disk Utility either (although I'm not sure that is possible)
Anyway, I've tried restarting iTunes and the iPod and neither has resulted in success. Ideas?
I plug in my iPod Touch and it always opens iPhoto. I took off photo syncing with iTunes and did nothing. I have iPhoto v6.0.6 and I could not find a "disable sync" anywhere in the preferences. I fond the application image capture but when I open it, nothing happens (the menu switches for a split second from finder to image capture then back to finder). I heard you can disable it through image capture but since the program seems to be faulty and does not open so I dont know what to do.
im trying tio sync my old ical and notes from my old ipod touch/mac to my new ipod touch/mac however to begin i cant figure out why my old ipod wont sync its notes and ical with my old mac? basically the old mac has older versions of ical and notes then the old ipod does!
I press the power button to put the screen of my iPod to sleep and nothing happens, I CAN, however, use the power button to turn off the iPod. It just won't go into sleep mode with the power button. It will still go into sleep mode if I wait long enough.
-The button still works, just not for sleep mode. Actions taken- I've reset all the settings, and erased all content and settings. I'm on a dialup connection so no software updates are possible at this time, but still suggest them and I'll get them later...
How do I transfer my iPod Touch songs to my MacbookPro through iTunes? I stopped it from syncing, but I have no songs on my MacbookPro and a bunch on my iPod. I got my iPod songs from iTunes on a PC. I want to plug my iPod Touch into my new MacbookPro and transfer the songs from my iPod to my Mac.
i had to change my password to my ipod, and then i forgot it. i was wondering if there was a way to change the password with out restoring it. because my desktop computer is really slow and i dont have the time to restore it, and i need to update it.
Is there any free way to lock or logout a Mac using an iPhone or iPod touch? Maybe using an AppleScript and the Bluetooth built into both devices (when the iPod goes outside of the Mac's range, the computer could lock)?
I have a 16GB iPod Touch that connects to other networks just fine, but it won't connect to mine. I've tried restarting the router and the ipod, and nothing seems to work.
Would it have something to do with my network being password protected? I enter the password on the ipod and it all works just fine, and it connects, except I can't actually use the network to do anything. I just get the error message "not connected to wireless network"
If you order a macbook pro, will you be able to get the new iPod touch or the old one?I tried making an order and it looks like it links to the old one, I just wanted to know if anybody is in the same boat as me.
