ITunes :: IPhone Showing As Over Capacity When It Isn't
Jun 9, 2012
When syncing iPhone 4, the "capacity" bar in iTunes show's as over capacity, it gruntas and graons for 5 or more minutes, then suddenly drops down to normal (meaning it was NOT over capacity), then it syncs normally. How can I get this to stop. Everything is updated to current.
I ran into this problem when trying to add a Ringtone to my iPhone 5. ¬†
In some views, iTunes shows all the storage in "Other" with some free space. In other views, it shows Audio, Apps, etc. and Other. But the Other is equal to all the storage used, so the Apps, etc. are getting double counted. And, iTunes thinks the iPhone is over capacity. ¬†
The net result is that the Sync process believes the double counted total and refuses to add the ringtone, or any other media files to the iPhone. But, I can add/delete Apps at will.¬†
I reset my MacBook Air yesterday and have plugged my iPhone 5 into the USB port. It did not show up in devices and I am unable to sync it. I have rebooted both devices several times and used two different USB leads and have seen no difference. How can I get my iPhone to show up in iTunes on my mac?¬†
I am using version 10.8.5 of OS X on my MacBook but am not quite sure what I was using before the reset.
Until recently, when I downloaded an app update on my iPhone, it would automatically - without syncing - remove that same app update on iTunes and vice versa. Now it does this only when I download the update to my iTunes and then sync using USB.†When I do a wired sync. I can't figure out how to make it do it again automatically.
I just secure erased my Time Capsule disk through AirPort Utility to set it up with my new iMac. After erasing the 1TB disk, AirPort said that the disk capacity is only 931GB even though the Time Machine preferences displayed 998GB available prior to me initiating the first backup. Does anyone know why this discrepancy exists? It should be noted that the previous backup on the Time Capsule disk from my old Mac took up about 68GB so is AirPort Utility just struggling to show the new capacity after the secure erase?
I bought a 3rd party battery for my MBP. I put it in and after cycling the battery i noticed that the full charge capacity was only 3990mAh (supposed to be 5500mAh). I returned the battery today and got and an upgraded replacement. this shows the full charge capacity at 4995mAh (supposed to be 5600mAh).
is this normal. Do I just need to give it some time or is it something with the batteries.
How do I stop the contacts from my iPhone from showing on the contact app for my macbook pro? I have gone into system preferences and tried to stop it there but to no avail. This is a shared Mac so i don't necessarily want my contacts showing on there ...

I've been running all of my emails through my iPhone since it was released. Just recently I picked up a new Mac Mini as a work machine, and I set up Mail to handle all of the same accounts as my phone, with the thinking being that I can read and respond to messages when I'm at the computer, and when I step away, be able to read the remaining emails on my iPhone.
What my problem is, however, that both my Gmail and Hotmail accounts don't seem to "sync" properly between the phone and the computer, meaning that mail that I've read or deleted in Mail on the Mac Mini don't show up as being read or deleted on the iPhone, and vice versa.
I don't want to have to delete a message on my phone if I've already taken care of it in Mail.
Recently I got a 3Gs and loaded it up with my old 3G backup. All the music was gone. No biggie, I just re-added it all. Then I upgraded to 3.1 and i noticed that in my iPod on the iPhone some of my albums were showing up as multiple entries. The difference is, it seems it would make a new album entry for every artist on the album. It's annoying because I used to just have one album but now its like 15 entries and i have to scroll through them all when they should all fall under that same album. WTF 3.1
I added about 20 new contacts and edited about 10 other contacts on my iPhone since the last sync. I just hooked my iPhone up to iTunes, went to "Info" and checked the sync contact field. Then I synced it, but no matter what I do, the new contacts dont show up on my Address Book on my Mac. It asked me for one duplicated entry, where I had to choose one and I choose one. It even says Sync Okay in iTunes.
I've taken a load of photos on my phone and have placed them in an album within my photo stream, they are now showing up on my iPad but not on my mac which is where i really want them. I've tried turning the wifi on and off again, I've tried turn the devices off and on again. nothing is working! all i want is my work backed up.
After a full migration from my 2006 Intel iMac to a new 12.1 21" iMac, I I tried to change some playlists and download other podcasts ect. on my ipods and i pad 2 on my new iMac , but the bar at the bottom of my sync window does not show the capacity bar along with the† Revert and Apply buttons. Everything else looks like it should and I don't get any error messages.
I unfortunately lost my whole itunes library that was on an external hard drive. I was able to download my music and apps stored in icloud. I want to sync my iphone and ipad to itunes for mac without erasing everything on these devices. can this be done keeping all my apps, music, folders intact on these devices.
I was looking to access the file sharing functionality of one of my apps (AV Player HD) in iTunes 12 and wasn't able to find out where or how to do this in the new version.¬†
After a bit of searching on the internet I gathered I needed to select my device (iPad in this case) from the devices drop down, then on the left hand sidebar under the menu heading 'On My Device' I should see "Apps" listed there along with Music and Movies etc. I have:
Music MoviesTv Shows Books Audio Tones
and then some music playlists..That's it.¬†So my questions are:
1. where is 'Apps'?
2. how am I supposed to access file sharing on AV Player HD if I can't see this menu item?¬†

I am running an approx 2 year old Macbook on my wifi network and have noticed that the download speeds are very slow all of a sudden.Testing with speedtest.net I am only getting 0.5MB/s compared to normal speeds of 2.5MB/s.I don't think it's the router because my iPhone is consistently showing 2-2.5MB/s.I have run software update to ensure everything is up to date.
I've been syncing my devices for years, but after I updated to iTunes 10.6 then attempted to sync my iPhone 4, iTunes aborts and does not complete the sync.¬† I tried my iPad as well with exactly the same results.¬†So, I expect that something has begun corrupted in iTunes and I tried to revert to the previous version of iTunes with Time machine, but the Mac reported that I cannot remove iTunes.It could be a library that is corrupt or a cache of some sort, but I can't tell.¬†
I have a new-to-me MacBook (running Lion) and I just downloaded all my music into iTunes. I had been sync'd with an old PC laptop previously.¬† If I choose to sync my iPhone (4S) with iTunes on the MacBook, will it delete my apps and data (as the warning in iTunes leads me to believe)?¬† I do use iCloud backup on the iPhone, and I've got all kinds of apps installed (and arranged to my liking).¬† What's the best way to have my music sync with the MacBook without having to reinstall my apps?¬†
I have Itunes on my Win7 computer and on my Macbook running snow leopard 10.6 and the latest Itunes and neither computer will connect to my iphone with the usb cable.¬† It did with the previous version of Itunes.If I can't get an answer I will go back to the previous version of Itunes
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.
Why are tags now showing up as they were before I re-tagged them in Itunes when I open them in other players e.g. VLC ?I'm sure it wasn't like this before? Is this happening to anyone else? Is there a fix or an explanation as to why?I spend ages getting the tags just how I want them which is great for itunes but when I open them in other softare the old tags (how they were before I used itunes to re-tag them) show up instead of the new ones I wanted.

I have tried importing this CD as Apple Loss-less, .mp3, etc and it doesn't ever show up in iTunes. I found the music with the finder but when I drag it to iTunes, no go. I right click and say open with iTunes, nope. I go through iTunes and use Add to Library, it still isn't showing up. No error message is displayed, it just simply doesn't add it to the library.
