I currently have 3 Picture Libraries showing up on my Blackberry Bold 9900 phone, all with the same pictures.Why is this happening?How do I stop it from happening again?How do I get back to just 1 Picture Library?
I have one computer in the family and 3 devices - an iPod Touch 4G, and 2 iPhone 4S'. I never sync the iPhones to the computer, only the iPod Touch, and I have 3 separate iTunes libraries for each. So today I tried connecting one of the iPhones to the computer, but a message popped up saying that the device was already synced to another library, and I would have to Erase and Sync. I tried looking for the library I made specifically for that device, but when I opened it, the library was exactly the same as the one I use for my iPod! How do I find the original iTunes library I made for the iPhone?
it is possible to transfer your music library from a 1st gen Ipod touch to your itunes library on a Mac book pro. I have alomost 3000 songs as well as playlists on my Ipod and cant find anyway to transfer theses to my itunes library, meaning i can't add them to my 4s.
6 months ago i synced my photos (950 of them) to my laptop. But my laptop crashed and i needed to restore it default, so what i did was i copied all synced photos back to my iphone to act as a temporary storage of my photos. but now im about to sell my iphone 4 and i need to transfer my photos back to my laptop i cant seem to do it!!! and im here and ive spent a good 5 hours researching and downloading third party apps just to do that to no success. Im getting frustrated as this should be a walk in the park but its complicated as **** with this phone. Im starting to hate this phone now as this shoud be very easy (just a copy paste) job for older phones with memory cards. ive used iExplore but it doesnt work it just shows the camera roll pictures which consists of recent ones but not the photo library ones..
I have an iPhone 4S running iOS 8.1.1 and iTunes 12.0.1.¬ When I updated iTunes recently to the new version, 12.0.1 it unchecked the Manually Manage Music and Videos option on my iPhone's summary page.¬ I just want to re-enable this feature without having to spend the time re-installing all my music and playlists.¬ Is there a way to enable this feature without erasing my music and videos?
I had a MacBook Air and a 6 year old desktop PC. Everything I had was on both of them, so they acted as each other's back up. This Sunday evening just gone, my PC finally died a traumatic death, and I can't even get it to boot from Safe Mode. Then on Monday while I was at work, my house was burgled, and my MacBook Air was stolen, amongst many other things. All I have now is my iPhone 4S which was with me at the time. All my music, photos, videos etc are on my iPhone, but I'm very aware that when I eventually get my replacement MacBook from our insurance company (I'm being realistic and accepting that I'll never see my stuff again), as soon as I plug my phone into a blank iTunes library, I'll lose everything that's on there. Obviously I can re-download everything I've purchased from iTunes, though it will take a VERY long time and I still won't have playlists etc, and I can probably either Dropbox or email what photos I have on there, but I have a lot of video clips from over the last few years that aren't on my camera roll - they're in the phone as proper videos, in the video player app, and I can't get Dropbox to view that location, or figure out how to email them. The videos are very important to me and I really don't want to lose them; so much so that I'm thinking of never syncing my iPhone ever again! Basically, what I'm asking is, how can I copy everything from my iPhone into a blank iTunes library?
i am stuck in a tricky situation and would things first i know this is quite a frequently asked question as i have done a bit of searching on the net about it however could not not find anything that totaly matches myproblem, i have recently purchased a brand new laptop which runs windows 7 compared to my old desktop which ran XP, i have tried syncing all of my iphone 4s contents onto my new laptop's itunes library including everything not just music or videos and i got the infamous pop up "The iphone is synced with another Itunes library. Do you want to erase this iphone and sync with this Itunes library" the problem is that my original itunes library does not exist no more as my desktop was completly wiped and had XP redownloaded onto it again because it had a virus, which also wiped all of my hard drive so i cant even get everything i backed up off of my phone from it, i have managed to sign in to the itunes store and allowed my laptop to work with itunes,i have also transferred my purchases from my phone to my new itunes library but this only includes my apps and obviously not my contacts and photos and everything, i still get the pop up if i go to sync my apps from my library anyway, is there any way i can delete my original itunes library without it even existing anymore so that i can just start afresh and sync everything i have on my phone now directly to my new itunes library? or do i need to purchase this iphone rip/backup/store software that everyone goes on about or something? to be honest its really annoying my now as i just want to be able to sync everything like how i used to,
I'm just using the Micro SD card (2gb) that came with my Curve 8530. And as I sync my playlists through iTunes and download apps, obviously it is beginning to get quite full, and I'm actually almost entirely out of space.
How do I transfer what is currently saved on this card and put it onto the new card so that I don't lose any info?
Also, these cards are soooo over priced at Best Buy and other brick and mortar stores.. so if I am in the market for a larger card (probably a 16gb one), where would you guys recommend picking one up at?
I purchased music on itunes on my iphone and the songs won't show up in my music library on the phone. They are on my computer itunes library but it won't let me transfer the purchases back to my phone (which I have never had to do before). Never had this problem before this week when purchasing music on my iphone.My Itunes library on my laptop is slightly different from my Iphone library so I don't want to erase and sync the entire library.
My brothers computer broke. It was a PC. But he had his iPhone synced with it. So now he wants to get the music he lost in that computer to download to his new computer. But the music he purchased is on his iPhone, and the computer wont let him transfer the music from his iPhone, to his new computer. It tells him this music was synced with a different library and won't let him transfer the music.
Does anyone know a work around for this. I know he is using a PC, but I figure, and Apple user, who brakes his Laptop(I'm not talking about crashing, I am talking about actually braking, it was smashed basically), would run into the same problem, your iPhone has Music that was synced with another Library, and it wont let you move the music to the new library. Even though this music was all purchased with the same Apple ID, that doesn't seem to matter. Now, I know that one of the new features of iTunes lets you re-download music you purchased and may have lost, without having to purchase it again. But none of the music from that broken laptop appears in that list of re-downloadable music. All was purchased from iTunes.
I was trying to autofill music from my music under Library to my iPhone. I have done this before, but just tonight it has not worked. The message I get is "iTunes cannot add any songs to the iphone "iPhone" because no songs in your iTunes library could be found.
I am trying to erase all the music from my iPhone and then load a new music library. In iTunes I go to¬ Music > Sync Music > Entire music library, then attempt to Sync. I get the "this will erase all the music on the iPhone" message, I say OK. I then get a dialog "The iPhone cannot be synced because there is not enough free space to hold all the items in the iTunes library....."
The new library is about half the size of the library on the iPhone, so it is obviously not erasing.
I will soon be getting a Retina MBP, and would like to keep my entire music library on an external HD.
When keeping all of my music on an external drive, and leaving none on the rMBP, there comes the issue regarding music management on my iPhone. Presumably, in order to add music to the phone using this system, I would have to make sure that iTunes on the rMBP reads from the iTunes folder/library on the external HD, at which point the music files would become visible in iTunes and I could then add music to the iPhone.
Info: MacBook Pro with Retina display, Mac OS X (10.7.4), 2.3GHz quad-core Intel Core i7
My wife use the same pc and account, we have no need for separate accounts on pc.is it possible for us to each have our own itunes library that we can access maybe holding down shift or something on start up? we both have an iphone each but have two very different tastes in music and apps so we are curious cna the one itunes program have two libraries as to which we can sync our own iphone separately.
I'm able to create as many albums as I want under the main camera roll. from what I can see, I can add photos from my camera roll to an album but the two images are connected. so what happens is when I try to create albums according to event or subject, if I wanted to delete the original from the camera roll, it also deletes the copied image. What gives? Is there a way to have multiple albums on iphone where images won't be deleted?
We have purchased a new computer and have relocated our entire music collection onto it, however we can no longer drag and drop music onto our iPhones at will. Two phones were used with the library and we've previously had no issued with dragging and dropping onto everything, however even though they both have the 'manually manage music and videos' boxes ticked we can't do this any more. When dragging and dropping, the cursor turns into the red circle and the file is not transferred.
I have tried disabling the automatic syncing features on the phones so that it stops interfering with manually trasnerring files, but it gives us the error message 'all existing apps /music and their data will be removed' which is far from ideal.
How do we enable the manual file sharing without having to delete everything from the phone? I'd ideally like the two phones to not be synced with any library so that we can freely connect them to any itunes on any computer and drag and drop the files we need, since there are multiple computers in this house and only being able to use them with one of them is a huge inconvenience. Mainly though I would like the ability to drag and drop files to be restored.
I used to have a pc and set up my iphone on that device. The PC is now gone so the only place I have the music and my play lists exists on my iphone 4. How can I get the music onto my imac and subsequent iproducts, Ipad, Iphone 4s?
from several months I've a problem with my music player. i can't listen my songs, they don't appear in my music library and when I enter in it - ''General: system error". Instead of song I've got ''qtn_lgal_list_title_..." ..i tried to delete them but i couldn't. I updated software,but the problem doesn't disappear.
When i removed my usb cable, the phone said device error then when i went to playlist all the music were gone. If i try to refresh nothing happens, i have removed the data from the card, and put it back still nothing. When i connect with usb cable i can see and even play the music on my laptop. There is still nothing under my playlist the music is still playing under tones but its not showing in my music files and not refreshing.
It seems that the Music Library in my iPhone is messed up: some songs do not play, when playing others they jump to a different one, etc.....while others play ok. Everything is ok though in my PC (iTunes) and my iPod. I would like to completely erase the Music Library from my iPhone and sync it back again after.
