My family is currently using one ID and with iCloud and the automatic downloading of apps onto devices it gets really annoying.¬† I want to create my own apple ID but I am afraid that it will delete my music/apps/etc from my iTunes library and iCloud. Is this true?
Under purchases I'm getting "you have not purchased any apps." Under Itunes in the Cloud all my apps are listed as hidden but when I click "view hidden purchases" it says I do not have any hidden purchases. I have three Macs and all are experiencing the same issue so this is an account problem and not a computer software problem. The funny thing is that it's still recognizing updates.Yes, I've tried signing out and back in to view my account with no luck. The only thing I did weird last night was I disabled the Itunes store and automatic downloading on one computer. This morning when I had the above problem I put all the settings back.¬†
How can I delete Apps and iBooks from iTunes so that do not constantly re-sync with iPad or iPhone even though I specifically un-check them NOT to sync?¬† I have to go thru this every time!¬† I don't even want them any longer on iTunes (or iPad) but I can't find a way to remove them from iTunes! Apple used to be so easy and intuitive but now so much is hidden/fixed).
Info: MacBookPro, Mac OS X (10.7.4), 4GB SDRAM; 500GB HD
I've downloaded 100 Apps since getting my iPhone.†Of which, only 70 I've enabled to be sync'd to my iPhone. If updates are available for the other 30, iTunes downloads them even though I am not sync'ing them to my iPhone. Is there a way to permanently delete these unwanted Apps from my iTunes so that I am not spending time getting updates to Apps I am no longer intersted in?†
Everytime I open iTunes there is automatic downloads waiting for apps that I no longer have of want. I delete them form the iTunes download screen but they come back everytime. How do I permently delete apps from iTunes, and/or my whole app history, form my account?
When I sync my ipod, it will sync and everything. My problem is, is I have old apps that I don't use still on my itunes. It's not syncing to my ipod because they are not checked but they are still on my app summary screen. How do I get rid of them?
Apps that have been closed with the X checkbox. Are they gone forever? I thought they were just hidden and could be brought back. I can't seem to find a way to do that. The problem started because the App Store says I have an app installed when it's not in my Applications folder. Where is it looking to see if an app is installed? There are no receipts I could find.¬†
is there any sensible way to order App Store purchases aside from purchase date, which seems the least useful.¬†
Might seem like a stupid question, but I have an SD card with hidden files filling it up to capacity. I want to delete these but I can't. I can see them, but when I hit delete it makes that noise that says you cant do this, and I cannot drag to the bin either.
Wut up Mac Peeps, pretty advanced Mac user and I just can't figure out how to delete the hidden partitions that Windows 7 creates. I've installed Windows 7 twice on this HDD with Leopard v.10.5.8 on it and now I have 2 small partitions at 200MB each. This means 4 partitions (1 for Leopard, 1 for Windows 7, and 2 hidden partitions). They don't show up in Disk Utility and I tried removing the entire BootCamp partition, then re-installing Leopard just so that I could configure the HDD to "One Single Partition" with Disk Utility on the Leopard Disc while re-installing and THAT didn't work for the hidden partitions either...couldn't believe it...
I'm hoping I don't have to use a Windows DOS Boot Disc to format or something...not sure if they work on MBPs but I would try...I could also use Seagate HDD Tools but I'm trying to keep this simple.

I just went through the process of buying an app as a gift to be delivered via email. Typed my personal message to the recipient, confirmed the delivery address. Got the review screen. Then when I clocked to purchase the app, I got a security screen asking me to select 3 security questions and an alternate email address. Got immediate emails from Apple noting the changes to my account. But I never got an email confirming the gift purchase. How do I tell if it went through? The item is not listed in my purchases, but maybe that's by design?¬†¬† Did the security question dialog hijack the purchase process?¬†
(Also checked my credit card website, and it doesn't look like there's a pending charge yet. But I'd hate to purchase this app twice.)
I have a Macbook Pro and a desktop PC with iTunes installed on each with the same account. However, my iTunes purchases are not reflected the same on each computer. For example, my Macbook has two tv seasons of The Wire that does not appear on my PC iTunes. Also, there are a number of apps on my PC that I don't have on my Mac notebook. This is especially annoying as I sync my iPhone 4 most frequently with my desktop.
I've Googled for apps to do this but all of the ones I've found are out of date. I realize there isn't much of a need for this anymore but I've just discovered about 20 tracks in my library are still protected. This means I can't use them in iMovie for the iPhone. Only about half of them are listed in iTunes as having iTunes Plus upgrades so I'm trying to figure out what to do with the rest.
I get this error message when I try to check for purchases: "Unable to check for available downloads. The iTunes store is temporarily unavailable. please try again later." This has been going on for months. Upgrading to snow leopard didnt change it. Various iTunes upgrades haven't changed it. What can I do? I'm running iTunes 9.0.2, OS X 10.6.2 on a Unibody Macbook.
Our family has 2 i-phones, an i-pad, an i-mac, and 2 touches.¬† We use the same Apple account.¬† We currently have a positve balance on our i-tunes account.Some purchases are deducted from this account while others are put on my credit card.
I recently purchases an IMac and want to transfer my itunes playlists from my macbook to the Imac.I tried sharing but it only lists all my songs.¬†I would like to also have the playlists.How can I to that?
