My iPod Classic isn't being recognized by iTunes (this has always worked fine until now). I have an iMac. The iPod connects fine and is shown on the desktop, but not recognized in iTunes. My other iPods are recognized in iTunes, just not the Classic. I have reset it, installed latest iTunes, nothing works. The iPod works fine.
I tried to put new music on my iPod. This has consistently been a problem because Itunes says that the ID that i'm getting my applications from is not the same as the one issued to the iTunes application on the computer I get my music from ( because the iTunes on this computer has no purchased music, only free promotional mixtapes, so it isn't linked to any iTunes account). This forces me to have to restore my iPod to factory quality every time I want to apply new music to my iPod.
This time the problem is worse- I updated Itunes earlier to the newest version ( I hadn't updated my music or Ipod software in a very long time), and now Itunes is unable to recognize my Ipod. I get the error message, "iTunes was unable to load data class information from sync services" after iTunes tries to recognize the iPod for a sync for about 30 seconds.
I read this article; [URL] which suggests that I update to the newest version of iTunes, then reset my sync history. The problem now? I can't even get the preferences tab to load. Whenever I try to load the preferences tab, iTunes freezes up and becomes unresponsive. This is extremely frustrating. I have to go through all this troubleshooting, errors, and updating just because my iTunes isn't registered because it has no purchased music?
>iTunes won't respond to my 4th gen iPod
>I get apps from the app store off of my father's Apple ID that I'm posting from
>Causes me to have to restore my Ipod to factory settings everytime I want to get new music for my iPod because my iTunes application on my computer isn't registered to an Apple ID
i plug my ipod into my mac via the usb port as usual, and itunes just sits there with a blank look on its face and doesnt show that a new ipod is hooked up, and therefore doesn't put any songs on my ipod.
Couple days ago I deleted a playlist on my Itunes accidentally. Luckily I have all my music backed up on an External HD. I remade the playlist on Itunes, transferred the music from my Ext. HD to the playlist, connected my ipod to have it synced, then disoconnected my HD and Ipod after sync and when I search the playlist on my Ipod I only get 29 of the 142 songs synced. Can someone please tell me what could be going wrong?
Since yesterday mourning my I-tunes keeps freezing...I tought it was my i-pod so i restore it n now i cant sync the song back to it...I try re downloding i-tunes, but was in vain...so now I dont know how ot reput my song back to my ipod, since itunes keeps freezing every time I try!
I have 100gigs of music so I successfully transferred my iTunes media to an external hard drive, and identified this new location within iTunes/Preferences/Advanced/Location. Everything worked great until I had to shut down and start up.
Now, it no longer recognizes the media library. When I try to play a track in iTunes, iTunes says the original file could not be found. It prompts me to locate this one track, which I do, and that one track will play. All of the other tracks have the (!) sign next to them in my iTunes library.
I have double checked the settings in my iTunes preferences, everything appears to be configured as when I first made the successful transfer (identifying the external hard drive as the location).
I've made sure to restart once the external hard drive is connected.
i recently received an ipod from a friend. It is in windows format and i have a macbook and for some reason when i plug it in to the usb port it will charge but itunes doesnt recognize it nor does it pop up on the desktop.
I have an old macbook that has all my songs on, as well as my iPod. I have recently got an iMa which currently has no music on, how would I transfer the music from the iPod to the new iMac, or alternatively from the old Macbook to the iMac?
Today my ipod started to act up. I cant seem to connect it to my computer anymore. When I plug it into my FireWire port, all it does is charge the battery. I am thinking there might be a problem with the FireWire cable itself (i hope, cause thats a cheap and easy fix). I know it isn't a problem with the FireWire port on my computer, because my CD Burner works fine.
This upgrade sent out 5th/6th February 2010 has caused my family's iPods and my AppleTV to disconnect from the iTunes library and demand a return to factory settings for all units. Still have not got any of them to sync with the library or reload the back-up settings in the case of the iPods
I am running a MacBook Pro 2.8GHz Intel Core 2 Duo with 4GB memory
I own a 5th Gen ipod (clickwheel) that i recently reset, but now it will not charge or sync with my itunes. when i connect it to my computer it shuts off saying, "no battery power remain connect ipod to power." then it goes to a screen that says "wait very low battery." i leave it still plugged into my mac and in a couple minutes the apple logo appears and then "do not disconnect." it appears to be connecting to my itunes and begins to sync, but then it shuts off due to "no battery power," repeating the entire cycle it did before.
How can i fix my ipod? i do not own a separate power charger for the ipod and unfortunately the nearest apple store is four hours away.I also don't understand why it won't charge while connected.
^^ Basically says it. I just installed Leopard today and plugged my touch in for the first time since then. Itunes won't detect my iPod though. iPhoto tries to import pictures from it and it charges but iTunes won't detect it.
I have an older iPod that has some playlists on it that are not in my iTune library. I want this same playlist on my iPhone but when I do an 'export' then try to drag and drop into my phone I get a message saying it did not copy because 'it cannot be played on this phone'. I also cannot drag and drop it into iTunes anywhere either. All of these songs are in my library, I just don't want to have to go through and remake this playlist to add to my phone.
A month or so I got an iMac and it's been pretty awesome, despite two dead pixels! Today I wonder if perhaps I'm beyond help, and how in the world this could happen. This story begins with me using my Logitech MX Revolution mouse. It's a nice mouse, I really like it! When I first go the mac I promptly went to Logitech's site and downloaded the official logitech control center and everything worked out fine. Until a day ago, when I read that the logitech drivers are sort of sloppy, and using an utility such as USB overdrive, or steermouse would be better. (I decided to go for steermouse, as it looked to be more recently updated)
I uninstalled the logitech pref pane, and installed steermouse. This is where my troubles began. I couldn't quite seem to get the mouse to work properly, no matter what I tried on the menu. So I decided that, well, I guess this program is crap, and uninstalled it. When I went to reinstall the logitech pref pane, things started getting weird......................
I have a 12" G4 Powerbook model A1010. It has the 1ghz 1.25Mb Ram 40GB HDD. I turned it on and I get the blinking question mark and mac folder. Went to Apple store, they told me I had a bad HDD. I replaced the HDD with a new one and it does the same thing. I booted from a leopard disk and it wont recognize any HDD i have installed. Now when i turn it on the fan kicks on overdrive and doesnt stop. Could I have a bad logic board? or a bad cable?
I have a pretty old (4-5 years old?) PowerBook G4, running 10.4.11. Recently the superdrive quit playing commercial DVDs. It will recognize CDs without a problem, but when I insert a DVD, the drive makes noises like it's reading the disc for maybe 20-30 sec. and then ejects the disc. I also tried to install Photoshop, but the drive wouldn't read the instal DVD either.
I have a WD Passport 100Gb, USB, external hard drive that was being used on a windows pc as a back-up drive. I have since, successfully formatted it for use as a back-up drive on the Mac via Disk Utility and have been using it with Time Machine without any problems. It has proved to be a little small as a backup and has been replaced by another larger ext drive which is working fine. I now want to re - reformat the smaller WD disk back to be recognised on my Windows machine so that I can use it like a large memory stick and move Windows files (not Mac files) back and forth to work from home. I don't need to use it on the Mac again.
I have been singularly unsuccessful in getting the Windows machine to load the drive and recognise it. I feel sure that I have successfully converting the drive back to MS-DOS Fat32 format from Mac by using Disk Utility, but the Windows XP Home machine just refuses to recognise the drive even after repeated attempts to set it up as a Fat32 drive with one partition, set with a Master Boot Record 'scheme'. When I plug it into the Windows machine, it ticks like a clock and is recognised in Device Manager as a drive, (but not Explorer) and appears with an Error triangle, and in the 'properties' of that the drive is noted as "cannot start".
i have a internal HD (WD CAVIAR) from an old windows computer that i decided i wanted to try to make as a EXT HD. so i got a USB to SATA connector that came with the power supply cable to the wall. so i plug in the connector in the HD then the usb into the computer then the power supply into the HD then the wall. then connector lights up and in system profiler it recognizes the usb to ATA bridge but disk utility doesnt recognize it. only once the HD showed up in disk utility but when i went to erase, a problem came up.
I have recently purchased my first MBP (13 inch). It is my first Mac notebook, but not my first laptop. I tried to transfer pictures from my sony cyber-shot still digital camera, but neither Iphoto nor Image Capture recognize the picture format (JPG) and does not allow me to transfer it.
The device also does not show up on the desktop and I have set finder preferences to show every device on the desktop. I have tried everything with my limited knowledge, but as a new mac owner.
