Motorola Atrix 4G :: Sync Phone To Get Music From Itunes?
Apr 21, 2011
I've been trying to sync phone to get music from Itunes. Tried Double twist... when connected my computer says there was a problem and it had to close. Send report...blah blah blah. Okay... so this didn't work. I down loaded tunesync..looks like a great app... somehow I cannot not get it to sync my playlists or music whether using wifi or usb connection. Says it's searching for connection.
I've been having a lot of trouble getting this done, and it's quite frustrating. I want to stream music from my computer to my Atrix phone so I can listen to my computer music library anywhere. That's all. All Motocast USB lets me do is sync my music to the SD card, which I DON'T want to do.
I synced all songs in my iTunes with my new Motorola Atrix 2. It downloaded all the songs to my 16gb microsd card. When I play songs on my music player with my headphones, the music will stop randomly. Some other times it won't stop and will play for a long time. I had a feeling it was somehow related to turning the screen off using the power button after I start my playlist but I am not sure about it. Again with this case, sometimes it stops and other times it would play correct. There are some apps as on my auto-end list but music player isn't one of them
I am using the MotoActv with Mac OSx Lion, all devices updated to the most recent versions. All had been working perfectly until a few days ago. Now, when I plug in via USB port to sync music and run data, MotocastUSB loads, but the message at the bottom of the screen says "Connect your Device" and all of the indicators say 0GB available. When I press the Sync button, I get a Sync complete message with Media sync:failed. Fitness sync: successful. When i then press the Sync History button, I get the message Music:writeCommandToDevice failed. No connection to device. Info for MotoAcrv indicates 10.26 GB of space available.
When I am trying to sync music from Itunes to my Photon through the Motorola Media Link software I get a error message after all the music files have transfered. The message says that the MLL has stopped working. None of the music ends up on the phone.
I have updated the Motorla Media software and as far as I know my phone is up to date.
I just purchased my Atrix phone yesterday. I am a complete newbie. At the store, the sales person moved my phone contacts from my old phone to the Atrix. When I got home I added my Facebook account and the app sync'ed my facebook friends to my contacts. Now I don't see any of the original contacts that were transfered when I purchased the phone.Is this a bug with the Facebook app, have the numbers been deleted or is there a setting that will display them?
I have had my Atrix for about a month. The phone is fast and responsive which is really great after having a dog slow phone before this one. But I have a love/hate relationship so far. One big issue is that my music player will not keep playing, it will randomly stop playing and I half to restart it. Also sometimes the music player will cause the phone to reboot. This problom used to be really bad but I found a bug causing some of the Problems.
1. Removed Battery and waited a few minutes to reinstall battery. No change still reboots after a few minutes of using the Music Player
2. Tried downloading another music player PlayerPro to use instead of the default one. No Change still Reboots
3. Next I tried doing a Factory Data Reset. Now the default music player played for about an hour for the first time.
4. Redownloaded most of the Apps I had (At least the ones I could remember). Music Player still playing.
5. Started modifing a couple of the OS Settings>etc... Player still playing
6. Until I got to the setting Settings>Applications>Development>Check Stay Awake while Charging. Now the phone rebooted two times in less than 15 minutes while playing Music. Went back and unchecked the stay awake setting and the Music Player is playing again.So can this bug with this Stay Awake while Charging option please be fixed. I hate for the screen to cut off while I am reading a book. I can plug it in and leave the screen on as long as I want.
7. Now the music player is playing but still after 1+ hours of play time Randomly the music player will stop and/or Reboot the phone.
I have a motorola Atrix 4G running Android 2.3.4 and I recently wiped all the music off my phone and synced it with my google music. I have all my music set to availible offline, so it is all stored locally on my phone, but the HDMI entertainment app doesn't detect any music, nor does the motoblur music app. I don't really care about the motoblur music app but how can I get my music recognized by the HDMI entertainment system app (is app the right word for the HDMI entertainment interface?), or is there a new app I can get that will recognize the music synced by google music?
Operating latest iTunes and iOS software. iTunes recognizes my iPhone. When I select music to sync in iTunes, when syncing the sync bar skips over syncing music (goes1-2-4-5).
Previously I added one album to the phone. Now today when I attempted to syncmore music the album disappeared from my phone (even tho it was checked to sync in iTunes) and I now have no music on the phone.
Since downloading IOS 5.1.1 my selected music in iTunes will not download to my iphone 3GS. Never had this problem before. The itunes library shows all the albums I want to sync checked off and even when I connect the iphone with the sync cable the songs will not be synced. I've looked at all settings and everything looks the same as it always has. I did get a new iphone 3GS recently to replace a stolen one but all settings remain the same other then the new software 5.5.1.
Info: iPhone 3GS, iOS 5, Main syncing computer is MacBook
After jailbreaking and getting my phone exactly the way I want it, I've decided I don't want to have to use iTunes to manage my music and Apps. I just reformatted my PC, and now iTunes wants me to totally wipe my iPhone and start over - this is unacceptable.
So I would like to manage my music outside of iTunes, but prefereably still using the iPod app as opposed to a third party one. I did a quick search and found nothing on the forums. Googling has led me to a few ideas, but they all seem dated. I am not familiar enough with SSH to figure this one out by myself.
Apps may be trickier, but there are a number of apps I have downloaded through Cydia, etc. that I would need to re-download if I wiped my phone.
Any tips or advice would be great here. Each successful thread I post takes me one step closer to leaving Big Brother out of my smartphone experience!
My new iPhone 4S (iOS 5.0.1) won't sync apps or music from iTunes in my win7 operating system unless if they downloaded from i tunes store, and the sync does't work if the source of apps is a CD or DVDs!
I have purchased 4 MP3 music albums from Amazon. Their MP3 downloader software automatically ports the music over to iTunes, and the tracks appear in my iTunes library on my PC. However when I synch my iPhone this music does not move over to my iPhone.
My iPhone options include "manually manage music and videos" - is this a possible factor? When I check under Music, there is an unchecked box by "Synch Music." However if I check this box it will synch the entire music library.
My music from iTunes downloads or CD imports has always synched with no problem, so I am wondering if this problem has to do with the source being Amazon.
Doubletwist even though it claims mtp support my htc one can't get songs sync perfectly. Try using doubletwist and sync a playlist and tell me they don't receive an error? Htc Sync manager takes forever to load and the playlists it imports from itunes duplicate everytime I start the program. Any other options besides drag and drop? I prefer not to use google music as I want my tracks coming my my itunes.
I'm not sure when this started but I've been putting up with it for a while. Most of the time when my iPhone 4s (iOS 5.1) syncs with iTunes (always running the latest version on Win 7) either via USB or WiFi, the songs I didn't purchase from the iTunes store (i.e. ripped) disappear from my iPhone. I have to then uncheck the box to sync music in iTunes and then recheck it so it copies all 2500+ songs back to the iPhone. I probably have to do this 2 times a week and would turn off syncing if I didn't have a need, but I do need it. This happens far more often on USB than WiFi but it's driving me crazy. While working with Apple support to troubleshoot another issue, I completely removed and reinstalled all Apple software and reset content and settings on my iPhone in the past 3-4 months.
I sync IPhone 4 to my itunes for the 1st time to upgrade the IOS and now it wont show my music it says i have it but I can't find it also when I plug it into my tahoe's radio and I try to listen to the music it automatically stops and i have to unplug it and try to play what ever again it won't ring at times and I haven't even wet this phone or drop it.
I am so tired of Apple screwing up my iPhone either with iOS or iTunes updates. This time I updated iTunes to 10.6.1, synced my iPhone, then I got a call and I notice that the ringtone wasn't the one I had set up as the default. I started checking and all my ringtones and music playlists were gone.
Info: MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.1), 2011 15", 2.3 GHz i7, 8GB RAM
I accidentally synced my iphone 4s to my sisters computer and now my computer won't recognize it and allow me to download music and photos etc. Is there some simple setting In need to do to allow my computer to recognize my iphone again?
I am trying to upload music to my iPhone 4 from iTunes. I can see my iPhone under the Devices section and can browser through the various tabs "Summary", "Info", etc. In the Music tab, I check the box to "Sync Music" and opt for "Selected playlists, artists, albums, and genres". I make my selection and can see the Capacity updating with the selections made. But then the only option I have is to click "Revert". I can see the "Apply" button, but it is greyed out - and cannot be selected. No "Sync" button appears.
