ITunes :: Lockdown Folder Missing - Unable To Sync


Since getting my iPhone 3GS just a few months ago, I have never been able to connect to iTunes. I was getting a strange error code, but when I tried again today, I got this message instead, "iTunes could not connect to this iPhone. Could not allocate a resource." I have had this phone for months now, but have never connected it to iTunes, and would REALLY like to so I can back things up. I have tried plugging into EVERY USB on the back of my iMac. The same thing happens in each one. I've also tried unlugging ALL other peripherals, and still nothing. Oh, and FYI, the phone connects just fine to iPhoto.

Read this in Console: "Could not create /var/db/lockdown//SystemConfiguration.plist: No such file or directory." Tried to reset the lockdown folder as described in step #6 of this article: [URL], but it says "The folder can't be found." So, I can't continue on with the steps. Now what?

Applications :: Unable To Sync Mail/Gmail Sent Folder?
I have had a Gmail IMAP account sync with Mail without problems for over a year. I almost never actually log into Gmail in a browser anymore because Mail works just fine.

The other day I was away from my computer so I logged in via a browser and saw that about a month ago, Gmail stopped saving sent messages in the sent section.

Those messages are still in my Mail folder, but never got sent to the server or not saved. I never changed any configurations.

Is there some way to manually "push" those messages to keep things in sync?

I have checked my settings, everything is normal.

ITunes Mac :: Sync Address Book Contacts Option Missing All Groups?
I had a problem with multiple copies of contacts on my iPhone so I deselected the "Sync Address Book Contacts" box in iTunes before synching. The popup said that all contacts would be removed from the iPhone, and I clicked to proceed. When the sync was complete, I verified that all contacts had been removed from my iPhone (they were).

Then I reselected the "Sync Address Book Contacts" but noticed that all 15 of the groups from my MacBook that normally appear in the box with the All Contacts/Selected Groups button were missing. I opened Address Book and they were all there.

ITunes Mac :: Missing / Vanished Feature- Search Function In App Sync Tab
I just discovered that in iTunes 10.x I can't search for an app in the sync app tab anymore.

That's extremely disappointing when you are looking for an app that you want on your iDevice and have to browse through over 400 other apps to find it.

ITunes Mac :: Missing Tracks In Playlist When In The Folder
I have a sound book, I don't know what it is called in english but you listen to the book instead of reading it. I have copied the book to iTunes to transfer it to my iPod. The whole book is one playlist. I put the playlist in a new playlist folder. 13 tracks disappears from the playlist when in the folder but if the playlist is removed from the folder they reappear! Is there any explanation to this?? I don't need the list to be in the folder. But I don't like things like this to happen.

ITunes Mac :: Missing Songs In Music Folder?
I recently found that I have missing files in my iTunes music folder. The missing songs seem to be random. For instance, Abby Road is missing tracks 3 and 6. My music folder is on my main hard drive and I also have a Time Capsule backup.

When I look for the songs in my backup disk, I find I have to go back as far as 4 months to restore some of them and I just now found a song that was there yesterday but gone today. This leads me to believe that a few songs are randomly being deleted every day. Anyone else with this problem?

I'm using iTunes 10.1 but apparently I've been having this problem for at least 4 months now so I believe it was an earlier version when it started happening.

ITunes Mac :: Artwork Missing When Copying From Media Folder (9.2)
After updating to iTunes 9.2, whenever I wanted to copy one song with Artwork to another folder, the artwork is missing as it did not copy anymore. Even if I look at the Preview window, there is no artwork. The original song inside my Itunes Media Folder still has the artwork. This can't be normal. Is there anyway to fix this?

ITunes Mac :: How To Move Mobile Sync Backup Folder
I have an iPod touch 4g and a MacBook. At the moment I have a 40Gb boot SSD and a 500Gb HDD in my laptop. The problem is that the backup of my 32Gb iPod is already taking close to 10Gb of my boot drive and it is not even full (mainly HD videos).

Is there a way to change the setting of iTunes/MobileSync so that it stores the backups in my secondary drive? Or any other clever way of achieving the same outcome?

Or if that is not possible, can I make the backups not include photos and videos?

MobileMe / Sync :: ICal Unable To Sync From MacBook, But Sync From IPhone
I've looked at the recent posts, and it seems there are a lot of syncing issues, but couldn't find an answer to my problem, so I apologize in advance if I missed it.

If I input a calendar item on my iPhone, it syncs with iCalendar and MM no problem. But, if I input an item in iCal, or receive an invitation and accept it (also in iCal) it doesn't show up in MobileMe, or on my iPhone, but of course shows up on my iCal.

ITunes Mac :: IPod Unable To Sync
ok so I just upgraded to SL from Tiger and now along with the plethora if other issues I got, I can't sync my iPod Touch 2g. My iPod video syncs fine (although thats about all it can do with all of its problems that come with smashing the screen). I have sunc my iTouch once since the upgrade, but to do that I had to re-install iTunes (which took hours because SL ruined my internet speed) and restart my computer (I did all of the stuff Apple recommends when your iPod stops working so I don't know what actually fixed the problem) but now it won't do it again. What happens is my iPod charges, iPhoto opens ('08) and growl says that my iPod is connected, but itunes doesn't open if it isn't already, and if it is, it doesn't show my iTouch. I really don't want to have to re-install iTunes every time I want to sync my iPod.

ITunes :: Unable To Sync Songs To 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?

Applications :: Unable To Sync PC/Macbook/iTunes
I have a 30 GB iPod and a Macbook. I have synced my iPod once on my Macbook and it worked fine.

I brought my iPod to work (which only has PCs), and I've been charging my iPod on the PC. The PC doesn't have iTunes, so the PC treats the iPod like it's just a mass storage device but it still charges fine. Also, the "Format" label under the settings in the iPod now says "Windows."

Now I am wanting to re-sync my iPod to my Mac to add more music, but when I do, the Mac doesn't acknowledge that the iPod is even connected (not even in the Finder window).

ITunes :: Unable To Sync Over WiFi With New IPad?
I have a Mac running Lion 10.7.3 and iTunes 10.6.1 and I have a New iPad that I just got yesterday.  It has been updated to IOS 5.1.1.  I can get it to sync only with the USB cable.  I have verified that the iPad is on the same WiFi network as my Mac, and that Sync over WiFi is enabled on both the iPad and in iTunes.  I have three other IOS devices that are syncing over WiFi without problems so I beleive I know what I'm doing.  Maybe I missed a step?

I've just had the logic board on my MacBook Pro replaced under the dodgy Nvidea 8600 extended warranty scheme.

When I first reconnected my iPhone, I had to re-authorise my music etc but now iTunes wont backup or sync.

iTunes could not back up the iPhone "xxx iPhone' because the backup session failed.

iTunes could not sync information to the iPhone "xxx iPhone" because a connection could not be established to the iPhone.

ITunes Mac :: IPhone And IPad Unable To Sync To IPhoto?
I'm getting a "The iPhone/iPad 'name iPhone' cannot be synced. An unknown error occurred (1139)" when syncing my iPhone or iPad. This only happens when I have the "Sync Photos from iPhoto" selected in the "Photos" tab. Another thing I noticed is that, in the photos tab in iTunes, the option to sync selected albums is greyed out and cannot be selected. And I can't see any of my iPhoto albums.

None of my photos in iPhoto will sync with either device. I've done the iPad and iPhone restore and no change.

I believe this is an issue between iTunes and iPhoto because everything else (videos, music, apps, etc.) sync fine. As long as the sync photos option is not selected, the error does not occur.

ITunes Mac :: Unable To Fully Sync With IPhone, IPod?
That's the thing that's being going on for while but I haven't had the time to look it up. Basically I've noticed that my iTunes library has lost some tracks (I can't remember which for sure, but I know I had more music than I currently have) and that seems to have happened because I did transfer my library several times (from one PC to a Mac, then from a Mac to another Mac and then to a third Mac). On top of that, some playlists do sync fully either with on my iPhone or iPod. For instance: I have a playlist here that has 11 tracks on my Mac, but in my iPhone it has only 8. I've resynced a few times and still, it doesn't sync. And its the same with several playlists, so recreate them would not be practical. I haven't rebuild my iTunes library (trying to figure out how to) but is there anything else anyone would suggest?

ITunes :: Unable To Sync Purchases To IOS Devices From Macbook
So Apple sells ebooks and audio books through iTunes to people on their Macbooks. RIght? And when you go to sync these purchases to the Apple IOS devices you are told that you can not sync them to the Apple IOS device without erasing all of the rest of your music library on the same IOS device. Right?

I have to stop right here because thoughts of "class action",  of feeling having been defruaded, of having been taken for a ride. If I had nown before I bought my iPhone 4s that I would have to purchase all kinds of third party help to make it work only seemingly correct I would have never bought one. If I knew that when Jobs died this was going to happen I would have sold my Macbook right then and there. Tsk Tsk Tsk Mr Cook. So is Apple going to drive 10 hours from the nearest Apple Store to me and hand me a new Macbook without all of the bugs? Will that make me happy? No.

ITunes Mac :: Unable To Sync Playlist Content To IPhone 3GS?
I got a new MacMini to replace and old Powerbook. I moved the library over, ran iTunes which updated it. It didnt require me to reeastablish the iphone/itunes link. I thought everything was good for a while.

I created a new playlist and set it to sync. It syncs the list name, but not the songs. Removed the playlist, synced, re-added with a different name, synced, same outcome.

Wiped out iTunes library on Mini, then it made me reestablish the iphone/itunes link, then synced, it removed all songs and playlists from iPhone as expected. Added all songs back to iTunes library and rebuilt newly named playlists. synced. All playlist names synced, but still i have two that wont sync the actual songs.

ITunes Mac :: Unable To Sync With Ipad / Shows The Rainbow Busy Disc
iPod classic 80GB on a macbook with iTunes 10 and snow leopard with all the latest updates. 50GB of music content, no other content.

Have tried resetting iPod several times but didn't fix. Was hoping the last iTunes update would fix but it didn't. Been having the issue for several weeks.

If I leave mine syncing overnight then it will finish, but doesn't actually add the newly downloaded tracks. Otherwise it just continually says Syncing ipod step 2 of 2 determining tracks to sync. Every few seconds iTunes shows the rainbow busy disc.

This is in my opinion a catastrophic failure and should be no. 1 priority for apple to fix. I don't listen to music on my mac, I listen on my iPod or iPod dock, so now I have purchased genuine iTunes songs which are of no use to me until I can get them onto my iPod.

I have also tried to restore my iPod which worked fine, so now I have no music on my iPod at all and iTunes still won't sync anything to it.

This seems to be affecting a lot of users as I've seen various other posts with the same issue.

I also read on a forum somewhere probably this one, that uninstalling and reinstalling iTunes doesn't solve the problem but I don't know if anyone has rolled back to version 9
