IPhone 5 :: IOS 8.1 / How To Prevent It From Syncing Music Out Of Order
Nov 30, 2014
So for the past month or so, whenever i tried to sync my iPhone 5 to my iMac, my music would end up out of alphabetical order on my iPhone.
The majority of music would end up under '#' on my iPhone even though its perfectly organized on my Mac and i would have to resync my phone multiple times to get at least some of the music up the list alphabetically.
Although it did have some affect, the problem still persists with a '#' ending up under every couple letters.
Is there a way to resolve this or should i restore my iPhone?
just synced with laptop and to my horror now have every photo from laptop in albums on my phone which i cannot remove. Have gone back into sync mode and it wont let me access the albums on phone to delete. Such ridiculous situation not to be able to delete by choice on phone. Sync only repeats the process. Not a happy iphone user. remove the albums. Also what to do when syncing to avoid happening again. When syncing, I dont seem to be able to access my iphone or chose what sync processes i want as the sync only happens as one process including the photos. Is this a fault?
I am trying to get a definitive answer as have been researching this for weeks and despite my best efforts still have no solution.I am using the fantastic N900 (well done Nokia!) and would like all my music on the device. All efforts so far have transferred music ok but album tracks always appears in alphabetical order in the music player as opposed to the album track order(not much good). This is despite careful tagging and trying with Windows Media Player, Media Monkey & Songbird to see if any work best.
I found out today that this might be due to the file being a .wma file. All my music is ripped to my PC in .wma as in my experience I find the quality vs file size is great and better by far than .mp3.Today I ripped a CD with WMP as .mp3 and after sync the track order was correct (although I do not want to use WMP through choice and certainly not .mp3, let alone re rip my entire CD Collection), my preference would be Media Monkey or Songbird with .wma.
Is this a bug or N900 problem? (I know they are different but it worked fine on N97 and N95 8gb previously with MM and .wma) Can anyone help? or even offer a recommendation or suggestion as to what they think is best format, application or way to have music on the N900 etc.
In the latest build of iOS 8 (and in previous builds of iOS 8 but for me not in iOS 7), the music app is sorting Albums in the wrong alphabetical order. (The problem doesn't affect the Artists list, for example.) I get pages like this (see below), where the As are interrupted by an L and then returns to As, only to be interrupted by a P later on. As you can see, the album under the interrupting "L" has no Ls in it by which it could be sorted under L, but even if it did, why doesn't this album then appear below with the Ls instead of sorting here oddly among the As?
The problem seems to be limited to the A section as far as I can see. This problem also makes the alphabet side scroll not work at all, so you have to manually flick through a long, long list of albums. I've tried deleting and resyncing all the music from iTunes, but this didn't fix the problem. I also tried tweaking the settings in Settings>Music (e.g., activating and deactivating Group By Album Artist), but this also didn't fix the problem.Â I assume this is a bug in iOS 8.
So, got excited about the MotoACTV this past Saturday and bought online through Motorola. Realized soon after that my local REI had it in stock and I had a xmas gift certificate. Went to REI and purchased it - (Canceled my order for the Garmin 910XT in the process) Went back to the site to try and cancel my order but the 'Cancel items or order' button on my order page wasnt' functional. No biggie, I'll call. After being passed around to the same 3 depts TWICE, I was finally told the ecommerce section was closed for the weekend. Once again, I understand that.I then call on Monday, they tell me the order hasn't yet shipped but I'm not allowed to cancel it at that point. Don't quite understand and getting a bit frustrated at this point but whatever, I'll deal. Customer rep tells me that they'll issue a return slip and email it to me.
OK, I'm good with that.Wednesday comes and still no email with return slip. I call, go through the same 3 depts again and get someone else who tells me that it takes a while to get the return slip but I'll have it within 24 hours.24 hours goes by, I call again and get hung up on 3 times in the process before I can ever get to anyone. Once I get someone on the line, they tell me that it should be to me within the next couple of days... A RETURN SLIP?Once I finally lost my temper a bit, they said it would be 'escalated' and that I should be receiving it within a few hours... we'll see. They also let me know that I could not return it without the receipt.Meanwhile, I've completely soured on the one that I purchased and I'm considering returning it as well and changing my order back to the Garmin. By the way, I called Garmin's support team just to compare... night and day!
ordered an iphone 4s yesterday, but i've still got no confirmation mail. is it because it's weekend? i admit i'm starting to get a bit nervous, because when checking my order list there are no orders on my user neither. though, i signed up when completing the order of the phone. did it take a while before you got the confirmation mail or did I really mess this up?
I ordered this on the 15th at about 5:30am, a little over an hour after it was released. I printed out the confirmation page and I have the confirmation page. Nothing shows up in my orders, and when I type to search my order using my phone number or order number, nothing comes up.Has this happened to anyone else?I have to call them when they open!Also, I don't have a confirmation e-mail, because it's a different account owner with a different e-mail.
I have a Bold 9780, I have added a playlist of 31 songs to the media player using the desktop software. When I try to play the playlist in the media player, it seems to play the songs in a random (or what seems to be random) order. Is there any way to stop or correct this from happening?
How do I change the order the music is played in? When I sync a playlist from iTunes, the music does not play in order. I can't seem to figure out what order it IS playing. No where do I see playlist options.
For some reason quite a few of my recent purchases are not syncing to my iPhone 4S. They were fine up until recently when I had the handset replaced through Apple Support because of a SIM tray issue. Now however, I can't sync my more recent purchases to my device via iTunes, but I can re-download them through the iTunes app on my iPhone.
How to resolve this, or is it just a glitch that came up when my music player updated to the current version attached in the photo below??There's no repeat or shuffle turned on
After about 20 plus songs or so, the playlist starts all over again from the very top.... In some rare occasions, the list even starts auto shuffling itself even though shuffle isn't turned on >.< It's annoying as I have to keep going back to where I last stopped again everytime it does that. Is there any way to fix it??? I've tried turning my phone on and off and soft resetting my phone already but the problem still persists
The last time I updated the music player with the version number
I love car mode on my S5, except for this stupid bug where it plays music in alphabetical order instead of track order when you ask it to play an album. If I say the same command using the "OK Google" feature outside of car mode, that works just fine. The metadata on the mp3 files have the correct track info.
So after what felt like eons, I finally went from an 8gb 2G iPhone to a 32GB 3Gs. Since I live most of the year outside the US, I bought it used via craigslist ($500 if you're curious, 3 months old).
My nephew 'tested' it for me for a week or two before my parents brought it to me here in India. When I plugged it into my Mac for the first time it asked me if I wanted to restore. I did so and all settings and address book have come across. But the music and apps are not syncing. I guess it's still associated with a previous owners' iTunes (probably my nephew's). How do I overcome this?
Recently I had my iphone replaced with a new on as the old one had a software fault. Now I have received the replacement and have restored it from my icloud it first downloaded everything but the next time I used it I had lost all my pictures so I restored it and tried again but still cant retrieve them and now it wont sync all my music to it. I've tried and tried to just plug it into my computer which has my itunes on it and sync all my music but it will only do 200 of my 1000 old songs it has plenty of space but wont do it. what do I do?
I have an iPhone 4, since the beginning I have had trouble getting all of my music to sync from iTunes. It seems that the music I imported from CD format are not syncing, though I can listen to them from my laptop. I have gone through and deleted all my music and made sure to check the music I wnated but still am having this issue. These CDs are not even showing on iCloud. I am getting VERY frusterated with this!! How can this be fixed?
I just bought a new Mac Book Pro and have already started getting new music on it. I want to replace the old music on my iPhone with the new music on my Mac Book but everytime I sync it, it doesn't work. How can I replace the old music on my iPhone with the new music on my Mac Book?
I'm syncing my iPhone to iTunes and I'm ending up having music on my phone that, according to iTunes isn't on my phone. Or do i just reset the phone to factory settings thereby deleting all music? And doing that, what's preventing me from having the same issue again?
