Itunes 10.6 crashes on sync with all iPods. Never had any problems with this on earlier versions. Any one else have the same problem or know how to fix. Sort it out Apple - this is not good enough! Have already reinstalled iTunes and rebuilt library but nothing has worked.
Itunes used to work fine, but now crashes every time I plug my iphone in. It gets partway through the sync, then quits with no error message. If I stop the syncing, itunes is fine. If I then select my iphone in the left hand column, iTunes crashes. My iphone is set to wirelessly sync. Am I supposed to affect any change if itunes won't allow me to change any syncing settings. Really, if it is wireless, it needs to be configured from the phone, not itunes...
I have a 2gb iPod shuffle, but whenever I try to sync music to it all of the space is already taken up by "other" I don't have anything in my iTunes library besides music, so I don't understand why this would happen. I try to sync 1.9 GB of music but only 0.17 GB syncs because there "isn't room for anymore" this is because all the other space is inhabited by the yellow 'other' section. How can I eliminate the other, and just sync the music?
I have two iPod Nano (3 gen). One of them my daughter happened to drop into a pool so the screen stopped working.†Is there anyway to "copy" a† playlist from the "broken" iPod to the other fully functional iPod?†
I have tried to use the "Export playlist" / "Import Playlist" option but that dosent work at all? Or is itunes so (sorry) "Stupid" made that we have to make new playlist on the fully functional iPod and ad song after song, it will take hours to make the lists identical, there must be som easier way?
On my setup on Windows it loads the playlists fine, the newest first in Itunes 9 itself but dis-ordered on my ipods. On the Ipod touch v1 with 3.1.1 Firmware I can't fathom how it's sorted, it's totally scrambled the order but on the Ipod Classic V1 160Gb it appears to be sorted via artist. Even if you re-sort it by clicking the date added column the order of the playlist and resync it makes no difference to either of them. Neither does deselecting, resyncing, unplugging -replugging adding back and syncing again.
Anyone else have this issue or am I in the minority of one?
EDIT: Looking at the Apple Support Forums it seems like Smart Playlists are broken for many users on both Windows and Mac. Itunes 9.01 will be on it's way shortly!
iPods have been out for years now. Shouldn't they have come down in price some? I realize the iPods of today are better than the iPods of 2 or 3 years ago. But I'd be happy to have an unused old one for $50... or $80 even.
I some local internet streams which I listen to, when I added them a long time ago I couldn't add them to the itunes radio tab :-( but created a playlist.I would like to have those streams available on my laptop but since there is no "music" it does not sync.¬†Is there a way to do this? It would be nice to have them on the idevices as well but there i just use a radio app.¬†
I bought my first iMac yesterday and am slowly getting to grips with it.¬† I seem to have got totally stuck trying to connect my iPhone or the kids iPods.
When I connect by the cable, the phone charges fine.
The computer doesn't recognise that the phone exists though - either in uTunes or when i look in Finder.
I checked in system information, under hardware - USB, and it listed the phone there fine. (under the USB 3.0 high speed hub)¬†
I have tried putting making the sidebar visible on iTunes and this made no difference.
It doesn't even register it as a camera or external storage in Finder¬†
It's an iPhone 4, and I haven't updated the OS recently so it is still on iOS 6.
I've also not been able to get the iMac to recognise my printer throughout the wifi - I'm not bothered about fixing this just yet - just concentrating on one w=thing at a time, but mentioned it incase it's relevant.¬†
I have been using iTunes for 5+ years on my PC. I recently bought a macbook pro and, with help of Belkin switch-to-mac able to transport all my music, documents and photo's. However it did not sent the playlists and ratings.
I have a newer Mac. iTunes on my iPod recognizes my older Mac.¬† How do¬† get iTunes to recognize the new Mac to be able to transfer the files from the iPod to the computer and new Apple username/password? I don't want to lose purchased files.
Only problem is i feel like im going to have trouble syncing my iphone with itunes as my iphone is synced with my PC version of itunes. Is there any way to move my data from PC to Mac without looseing anything? All my apps an music are on a external HDD anyway, but i have nearly 1000 albums all with album art and perfectly named etc... many sleepless nights doing that!
i just bought a new mac, and i have attempted to sync my iphone wireless.¬† the "sync now" under itunes wi-fi sync does not , or will not work.¬†both the mac and the iphone are on a shared home wifi. is there a setting im missing in which my phone has to be "authorized"?
Normally I have my music stored on an external HD. When I sync my iPhone the music is synced with the content of the external drive. Were I not to have the drive turned on during the sync, iTunes would delete the music on my iPhone as it would sync the "no music" on my pc with the music on my iPhone. Now I am traveling and will be away from my external HD for about a month. I would like to add some apps to my iPhone but if I do a sync I will lose all that music until I can get back home. Not what I want to have happen. Is there any way to prevent iTunes from syncing the music, i.e. just letting what's there alone and syncing the rest of the content?
If I get a conventional mp3/aac player that uses standard USB storage, if there something I can get that will sync it with my Itunes collection? I figure there would be two ways; it could just copy the Itunes directory which always has things sorted by artist, or it could try and duplicate my playlists as folders. I'd prefer the latter. Does anyone make software that does this?
I have one song that will not sync to my iphone. It is a 43min long Nike running track which itunes gave away for free last year. I would love to listen to it as I run but I can't find it on my iphone. It is checked in itunes and I have it set to sync my entire music library so it should be on there. Any ideas?
If it matters I have changed my email address that I use for my itunes account since then but to my knowledge all of the older music I bought with that account still syncs perfectly fine.
Also it shows up that it is on my iphone when I look at it in itunes but not on the iphone when it is not connected. I watched it sync saying updating that track on the phone too.
I used to sync on an office pc with my Iphone.¬† All music was fine but now I no longer work there and want to sync all music on phone to mac PLUS when I downloaded a purchased cd to my mac it wont go to my Iphone.¬† Any ways to make this all happen?
My laptop got stolen a few weeks ago, i've replaced it with a new MBP, and fortunatley I done a full backup at xmas time, so my computer is just like it was on the 23rd of December 2011. However, my iphone has a ton of new photos, music and playlists on it since that date.
Now I want to keep all these tracks, playlists and photos, but i don't no how to go about it.
If i plug it in to the MBP now, won't itunes back sync and delete all the new stuff?
How do i go about keeping the recent stuff on my iphone?
Sync'd my iPhone with iTunes on my mac and lost all imported ringtones. I go to reset the alarm ringtone for example and cannot find any of my imported ringtones. My default imported ringtone for the phone still shows, but if I go to edit it, none of my imported ringtones show up as options. This has happened since the last s/w update for my iPhone (didn't happen before)...
I have just downloaded, and updated iTunes to 10.6.¬† ¬†Now I only get a beach ball in iTunes (which can only be force quit) when doing any kind of sync with the with 5th Gen Nano.¬† I can no longer delete or add songs or movies.¬† The Nano still works perfectly. ¬†
Is the 5th Gen Nano no longer supported by Apple?¬†
Info: iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.3), 27 inch iMac, 4GB, 5th gen Nano
having issues syncing movies/TV shows (bought off of iTunes) to their iPad/iPhone/iPod? I've bought a season of a tv show and 2 movies that will not transfer period, yet I can watch them just fine on on my Mac Book and Apple TV. ¬†Currently running off of Mac Book Pro (version 10.6.8 - software current), iPad 1 (software current), iPhone 4 (software current), iPod classic (software current), and iTunes 10.6 (40).¬†
I have a HD movie that I bought from iTunes and when I want to sync the movie to my 4S, it only shows the SD version in itunes under the iphone 4s movie sync tab. It shows the HD version if I launch it from my imac, but for some reason I can't get it to sync the HD version to the 4S.¬†
I did originally buy the HD movie on my 4S but had to download it at home on my mac due to large file sizes.¬†
Any reason why my imac can see the HD movie but neither my iphone 4s or ipad 2 can sync the hd movie?¬†
I am beyond frustrated right now. So far my transition to iPhone, iPad, and OS X has been really pleasant and convenient. This is just so beyond stupid though. Here is what I would like to happen:
I download podcasts on my phone while on the road, and I listen to them and delete them at my discretion. When I sync my phone to my computer, iTunes doesn't download any of the podcasts from my phone to the comptuer, nor does it delete them off my phone. That's ALL I want to happen.†
Instead, I download podcasts on my phone, listen and delete them at my discretion, and that works fine. But when I sync to my computer, it is just an exercise in frustration. It downloads the podcasts from my phone to my computer/iTunes, even though I have gone through every setting to make sure "sync podcasts" is off. I do not want the files transferred to my limited desktop space. Furthermore, it sometimes decides to just delete the podcast off my phone entirely. I like to leave old podcasts on to re-listen to sometimes.¬†
