ITunes :: Syncing To New Computer Without Loosing Data?

Apr 14, 2012

My dell computer has recently crashed, so I purchased a Mac mini hoping it would last. Now my problem is that I have to sync my iPad to my new computer, without loosing any data that I have made I have spent over a year using my iPad and would not be a happy camper if I lost my app data and music. So how would you sync it to do that? I know you can do it I have done it before I just forgot how to do it though.

iPad, iOS 5.1

ITunes For Mac :: IPhone 4s Filled With Other Data Instead Of Music After Syncing

Jun 21, 2014

After syncing my iPhone (4S, 32GB, iOS 7.1.1) with my iTunes (iTunes 11.2.2) on my MBP, iTunes said:

The data on the iPhone is corrupt, restore it (or something similar, my iOS is in German). iTunes did not even recognize my iPhone anymore. 

So I did restore the iPhone from the last backup from a few days ago. Everything looks fine during the backup process. iTunes resets the iPhone, then syncs all my music (about 16 GB or some 4,000 titles). 

But after completing, the  music is not there! The iPhone's memory is filled with 18GB "other data" (the yellow one, you know), and when I open "music" on the iPhone, it is completely empty.  

Obviously iTunes DOES transfer the music files to the iPhone, but they do not "arrive" there properly.

Applications :: Syncing To ITunes On New Computer - How To Fix It

Jun 10, 2010

I just got a new MacBook Pro and transferred all my music/movies/apps onto it. However I haven't synced my phone to it yet.

I'm worried something will go wrong or all my apps will be rearranged which I really don't feel like dealing with right now.

Before I go and sync it does anyone have any advice? What should I expect? Once I sync it, can I choose to sync it to either computer?

ITunes :: Syncing Multiple Devices To One Computer

Jun 4, 2012

We have one mac book, two iphones and an ipad and are having trouble syncing them all to the one computer.I have set up a different user account (with the itunes library shared across all users) for one iphone and ipad (who belong to the one person). However when we connect these devices it states that they have already been synced with an itunes account and will need to erase it to do so. They iphone was set up with an old computer and the new ipad through icloud. I have selected to manually manage the music (both with the old and new computer) but itunes keeps telling me it will have to erase the iphone/ipad to sync with this computer - all we really want to do is put music on the devices but definitely don't want to loose the contacts and all the other information.

I recently partitioned my harddrive for windows xp to be installed with bootcamp but now I would rather run VMware fusion. I haven't yet backed up my hard drive. Is there anyway to return to previous settings without losing it all? I have a lot of stuff on my computer is why I ask. Also, if I made a backup of my computer now, will that not work because I am doing so with a partitioned drive?

Applications :: Way To Transfer Master Playlist From Itunes To Another Computer Without Losing Data

Nov 15, 2010

migrate my music to another computer, but I'm afraid of losing what I have checked and unchecked in "music" library.So let me explain a little more, not a created playlist or smart playlist. If you were to go through every single song you have and uncheck what you don't listen to this is the "master list" I'm referring to.

ICloud :: Syncing Documents And Data Between Macs?

May 10, 2012

What exactly happens if I checkmark "documents and data" in the iCloud preferences on both my Macs?On iOS my understanding is that developers can build support for iCloud right into their apps, and so, only those apps that are coded to support iCloud syncing will be able to do it. However on the Mac, documents are not stored in an app-centric manner (and I'm glad because I loathe the app-centric document storage aspect of iOS).

So, I'm not clear what happens if you choose to sync "documents and data" over iCloud. Currently I use Chronosync to sync my documents folders between my desktop and laptop. However, this is a fairly hands-on process, and while I still plan on using Chronosync between my computers for several purposes, I would be happy to have iCloud sync certain documents and data between my Macs.

For example, I'd like iCloud to sync my Stickies, Downloads folders, and certain folders of documents like scanned receipts and saved web archives, etc. However I am scared to check the "Documents and Data" checkbox because I don't know what the heck it does. Is it going to scan my computer and upload everything in my documents folder? Or what?I read Apple's iCloud set-up guide but it did not give me a clue regarding this, and I didn't see any links to an advanced manual.

Applications :: Removing ITunes Movies Without Loosing Purchase

I want to remove a movie from my iTunes library to free up the 1GB of space, but I purchased it and do not want to loose the ability to copy it back to watch it again. That is, I'd like to copy it to an archive disk, but am afraid that I might get locked out of it forever, etc. Does anyone know how this can/does work? Is there protection, or other files I need to copy with it etc.

ITunes :: Any Way To Prevent Music From Syncing

Oct 9, 2010

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?
