ITunes :: Library Over 500Gb How To Split And Still Sync With IPhone And IPad

Jul 5, 2012

i have a large network with three 3TB TimeCapsules and a load of other stuff. On one of the drives is my main iTunes library which is now over 530GB in size. 

Backing this up alone takes over a day to complete and I am restricted by the way that the iPhone and iPad operates in that I cannot make multiple libraries and have them sync successfully.  

There is also the issue of the sheer value of the library which makes me concerned for its safety.  

Is there a way to split this library up into say music, TV and Movies that would still allow me to sync my iPad and iPhone to the relevent bits that I want or am I stuck with this ever-growing monster!?

ITunes For Mac :: Cannot Sync All Songs In Library To IPhone 6 And IPad Air 2

Dec 1, 2014

I have over 10,000 songs in my iTunes library--about 7,000 are songs I ripped from CDs and about 3000 are songs purchased through the iTunes store.  I am able to sync all the songs to my iPod Classic without any problem.  However, only about 7,000 songs are synced to my iPhone 6 and iPad Air 2--a mix of all the songs purchased and some of the songs ripped.  How can I get my complete library synced to the iPhone and iPad, both of which are 128 GB and have plenty of room for the songs.

Info:
iPhone 6, iOS 8.1.1

Applications :: IPhoto And IPad - Can Sync IPad And IPhone Without Having To Create A New Library

Apr 27, 2010

Also, is it possible to share an iTunes library between my MBA and my PC so I can sync my iPad and iPhone without having to create a new library? The library file is currently on the NAS and just wanted to use the same one. Would it allow me to sync my iPhone with the PC and the iPad with the MBA using the same library on the NAS? I know this is more of an iTunes question, but figured I would post it here instead of starting another thread.

ITunes :: Sync IPad 2 With Media Library On MacBook Air

Jul 4, 2012

I am not being able to sync my iPad, after having been using it for more than a year now! I had been syncing my iPad2 with iTunes on my Windows Vista machine. After my Windows Vista Laptop crashed, I replaced it with a Macbook Air 128GB (MBA). Since hard disk space on the MBA is at a premium, I transferred my iTunes Media Library to a 64 GB USB drive.

Now I tried to sync my iPad with iTunes on my MBA. iTunes on MBA saw my iPad: sync started: backing up completed without any hitch: and then came the error message "The iPad 'Rishav's iPad' cannot be synced because there is not enough free space to hold all of the selected items (additional 7.88 GB required)".I checked the available memory on my MBA, USB and iPad.

Details:
a. HDD of MBA: 86.6 GB out of 120.47 GB Free.
b. USB Drive where iTunes Media Library is located: 39.93 GB out of 64 GB Available.
c. iPad 2: 7.7 GB out of 58.1 GB Available.

Despite this availability of free memory, the sync is not going through.The memory utilization within my iPad, as seen graphically on iTunes on my MBA (when iPad is connected to MBA) is as follows:

a. Audio: 8.10 GB
b. Video: 7.30 GB
c. Photos: 7.50 GB
d. Apps: 14.00 GB
e. Books: 1.01 GB
f. Others: 2.60 GB
g. Free: 17.94 GB

How I can carry out my sync.

MacBook Air, Mac OS X (10.7.4), Also involves iTunes

ITunes :: ITunes Now Dies When Attempting To Sync IPhone Or IPad?

Mar 13, 2012

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.

ITunes For Mac :: Recent Video Content On IPad / IPhone Reloading During Sync

Jun 20, 2014

Recently purchased video content is reloading to my devices even though the same content is already on the device. 

Can successfully remove the video, and that stops the reload during subsequent syncs.  If the content is put back, the reloading starts again in subsequent syncs.   

Not the worst problem, but a big time and data consumer, and very annoying. I have tried the following without success of stopping this behavior;

1.)  Deleted the video in question from my library and downloaded it again from Apple.
2.)  Downloaded/Reinstalled iTunes from Apple on my laptop.
3.)  Device soft reset.
4.)  Device factory reset and restored. 

My current system is;  OSX 10.9.3 and iTunes 11.2.2 running on MacBook Pro, while OS Version 7.1.1 resides on my iPhone 5S and iPad2.

ITunes :: Cannot Sync IPhoto Library To IPhone

May 27, 2012

When I plug my iPhone 4 into my Mac to sync, iTunes does not appear to detect my iPhoto library. Activating the "Sync Photos from 'iPhoto'" option does not allow me to select individual albums, faces, etc. to sync. Attempting to sync result in the error "iTunes cannot sync photos to the iPhone 'Kyle Cunanan's iPhone' because your iPhoto Library could not be found. Open iPhoto to create or update your iPhoto Library." Opening iPhoto shows no problems. All my photos are still there, just as I've left them.

ITunes :: Apps Already On IPhone And Sync Music With A New ITunes Library?

Jun 12, 2012

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 had recurrent kernel panic attacks on my Macbook pro runnig 10.4.7.  This seems to be OK once rebooted in safe mode but I can find the underlying software/hardware problem.  The logs are not helping me with this issue.

IMac (Intel) :: FaceTime Sync To IPhone And IPad Air

Jun 5, 2014

I setup my new iMac (purchased 14 May 2014) with a whole bunch of FaceTime contacts.   These are there in my FaceTime pane. I bought an iPadAir last week and also have an iPhone. On both these Apple devices I also entered some FaceTime contact data, tried both out and they worked just fine; that is they talked to each other and other people. As this information was slightly different on all three devices, I wanted them to automatically follow what I have on my iMac, so I plugged them both in to the iMac. I then (separately) did a Sync of both devices from iTunes, and all the data for FaceTime in both cases instead of being updated and streamlined/synchronized with my iMac has been wiped. automatically rather than have to enter and re-enter all the data again and again each time I do a Sync. 

Note:  when I did the Sync the music I added today went where it should, so there's no problem with connections, etc. On the Info page I've clicked on "Sync Contacts" which would seem to be what was necessary. Now when I try to Sync either of these devices, the Sync process goes on and on and never stops. I can't see any way of stopping it other than doing a Force Quit of iTunes - which is pretty useless as I will obviously want to Sync these and my other Apple devices again in the future. As a result of this neither of these devices will now Sync with my iMac, other than locking themselves into a cintinuous loop. As I've just bought both the iMac and the iPadAir I could contact Apple direct, but I thought I'd try here first.

Info:
iMac, OS X Mavericks (10.9.2)

Applications :: Sync IPad On Mac / Windows PC And Share Library?

Is it possible to sync my iPad on both Mac and Windows, and to share the same library for both devices. I constantly switch between my desktop pc and Macbook Pro and it would be handy to get the same apps/music/movies on both, and being able to either sync my iPad on the pc or Mac depending on which one I'm using that day. Is this possible? Or can I only sync my iPad to one iTunes installation?

ITunes :: Split Library Across Two Hard Drives?

Jun 25, 2012

I am busy ripping my huge movie collection into an iTunes library, so I can play through my new Apple TV to my HDTV. Trouble is, it looks like I'll probably need at least 4TB's of HD space before I'm all finished. What I would like to do is to buy an external HD unit with two 3TB drives, and split my iTunes library across them, while still being able to view all of the movies on both drives all of the time, and give me lots of extra room for future expansion. 

Is this possible? If not, does anyone know of an aftermarket Thunderbolt 4TB external HD? I found a 4TB drive, but not with Thunderbolt.
