After changing laptops, i am unable to add songs into my iPhone 4. The song appears in the library but not in the device. Help!

I have not been able to add songs into my iPhone after switching computers. The mp3 format of these current songs are in the old laptop and i am unabe to retrieve them. In the new laptop, i am unable to add songs to my device, only to the iTunes library.

Best route here is to focus initially solely on the iTunes Library.  Once it has all the Songs that you want, turn off iTunes Match, sign out of iTunes Store and restart the computer from cold.
Moving to the iPhone would suggest a restore and fresh link to the library post the following steps.
1.  Sign in to iTunes Store;
2.  Turn on iTunes Match - allow 3-step process to run to completion;
3.  Make secure backup of library;
4.  Force iPhone in to restore mode - hold down 'power on/off' with 'home key' for 10 seconds
5.  Attach iPhone via USB to computer and follow 'restore' instructions in iTunes
6.  Once complete synchronise with library as required
At this stage all required Songs should be on the iPhone - post iPhone back-up a good point to fully enable iTunes Match on the iPhone if required.

  • When syncing my iTunes to my iPad from the laptop, I get a list of missing songs; they are in the library, but not in the music folder on my HD. In particular, I uploaded 3 CDs at the same time, all are in my library - but two are missing from the folder.

    When syncing my iTunes to my iPad from the laptop, I get a list of missing songs; they are in the library, but not in the music folder on my HD. In particular, I uploaded 3 CDs at the same time, all are in my library, and all synced to the iPad - but the music from two of them are missing from the music folder. Questions are (a) where might they have gone? and (b) is there a way of "reverse loading" them back to my hard drive from the iPad? Thanks in advance!

    Hi dones49,
    It sounds like your issue here is that iTunes can not find the files for some of the songs you have brought into it. This happens occasionally even if the songs have not been moved from the location that iTunes places them on import or purchase. When you try to use the song, iTunes prompts you to find the file, as you have seen.
    To find the file, use the information in this article to navigate through the iTunes media folders -
    Locate and organize your iTunes files
    If you are still unable to locate the files, you may need to download them from the iTunes store again, or rip them from your CDs. See this article for assistance with downloading your past purchases -

    Thanks for using Apple Support Communities.
    Best,

  • I want to remove the header and footer when printing from my mac, i can do this in the Page Setup on my PC but not on the Mac. I can do it each time I print but then it resets. How do I make a universal change?

    == This happened ==
    Every time Firefox opened

    Go to the "File" menu, then "Print." The window that appears will have three drop-down menus at the top.
    The first is labeled "Printer",
    The second is "Presets".
    The third is unlabeled but has "Copies & Pages" selected by default.
    Click on that third menu and select "Firefox" near the bottom of the list.

  • Why do podcasts I add appear in music library but not in podcasts ?

    I personally find iTunes to be deeply counter-intuitive and confusing, so this maybe a simple user error. I'm adding podcasts from a hard disk. They were downloaded some time ago, under linux, from BBC Radio using the 'getiplayer' app. They exist as mp3 files on my harddisk, within a 'My Music' folder (my mistake).
    When I add music files to iTunes from 'My Music' the podcasts are addded to the music library. When I delete them from that library, sending the files to trash, then add them from the original source to the Podcasts library, they appear back in the Music library but are not listed under Podcasts
    What am I doing wrong?

    There have always, well for the past few years, written installers that just create a mess.  All installed applications should appear in Finder, Applications.  Not all of those will appear in Launchpad.  When you encounter one that does not appear in the correct way, all you can do is manually move things around so it is consistent with the way apps should work.

    thank you in advance.

    Your suggestion worked perfectly.  I can't believe there is nothing in any of the instructions I have seen online at the Yahoo and Apple help sites about the making sure the right default account is checked.  I don't think I was even aware there was a "default account" setting.  Thank you so much.

    I changed laptops and went from Vista to Windows 8. It requires icloud. I did icloud setup but it will not allow me access and wants to give me a new password. That is OK but it will not send me the promised password even though itunes recognizes my password

    This has been posted for almost 2 weeks and not one reply. Thanks a bunch! As a newbie to OOo and Mozilla, I am not impressed with responsiveness to support needs with either. So, the future of my new experiment with going non-Microsoft remains an open question.
    Oddly enough, the problem mysteriously went away. I have followed the same routine and changed no settings. Suddenly all of the downloaded spreadsheets were no longer read-only. So I consider the matter resolved.

  • Unable to add videos into itunes?

    I am unable to add videos into itunes?
    pls advise.
    Rgds,
    Kesavan.R

    We will need to know full details about your issue -  format of the videos, version of iTunes, and what exactly happens when you try to add them - before anyone can be of any help. If you're referrring to iTunes on your computer, you may be more likely to get a quick and useful suggestion if you ask the iTunes forum appropriate for your computer platform (Mac or Windows).
    Regards.

  • After updating iTunes to 11.0.1.12 and updating Apple TV to 5.1.1 my Apple TV is no longer picking up my photo library. It just keeps saying "loading library" but never brings the pictures up. This didn't happen with previous versions. Any ideas?

    After updating iTunes to 11.0.1.12 and updating Apple TV to 5.1.1 my Apple TV is no longer picking up my photo library. It just keeps saying "loading library" but never brings the pictures up. It also tells me that home sharing isn't on even though it is and then I have to turn it off and on on the PC so the Apple TV even recognizes the photo library. These issues didn't happen with previous versions. Any ideas?

    Update on my previous comment. I have solved my issue. Issue was with Windows 7 firewall not operating correctly. I was unable to add itunes to the 'Allow programs to communicate through windows firewall'. Found the following page useful http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-security/windows-fire wall-cant-change-some-of-your-settings/514d78fb-39e9-47b1-b561-bc49cbdad904
    Followed the instructions to the foot of the page, restarted PC, normal service resumed on windows firewall, added itunes to list to communicate through firewall. restarted itunes, restarted appletv, success!!!
    Hope this may help somone else.

  • I am getting an error when trying to download  the new Game of Thrones shows. The error is err = -61 You do not have the privilege to make changes. (err = -61) you do not have the privilege  to make changes. I have not had this problem before

    I am getting an error when trying to download  the new Game of Thrones shows. The error is err = -61 You do not have the privilege to make changes. (err = -61) you do not have the privilege  to make changes. I have not had this problem before

    Solution:
    Open Disk Utility.
    Select your external hard disk and run a “verify” on it. After a few minutes (depending on the size of your drive), you should be good to go. You don’t need to run a “repair” on it... (at least I didn’t have to). See photo for reference.
    This should fix the permissions issue, because on my Mac running Mountain Lion I was unable to edit the permissions in the get info dialog window even after "unlocking" the drive.

    In System Prefereneces, when I am in Desktop and Screen Saver, I am unable to remove folders. I can click the "-" and the folder appears to be gone, but when I close and then reopen System Preferences, and open Desktop and Screen Saver, the folder reappears in the list. I have tried deleting preferences "plist" but I am totally unable to remove the folders.

    I've seen one other report like yours, and I think the issue is caused by a bug, but I don't know what triggers it.
    Please read this whole message before doing anything.
    This procedure is a diagnostic test. It’s unlikely to solve your problem. Don’t be disappointed when you find that nothing has changed after you complete it.
    The purpose of the test is to determine whether the problem is caused by third-party software that loads automatically at startup or login, by a peripheral device, or by corruption of certain system caches. 
    Disconnect all wired peripherals except those needed for the test, and remove all aftermarket expansion cards. Boot in safe mode and log in to the account with the problem. Note: If FileVault is enabled, or if a firmware password is set, or if the boot volume is a software RAID, you can’t do this. Ask for further instructions.
    Safe mode is much slower to boot and run than normal, and some things won’t work at all, including sound output and  Wi-Fi on certain iMacs. The next normal boot may also be somewhat slow.
    The login screen appears even if you usually log in automatically. You must know your login password in order to log in. If you’ve forgotten the password, you will need to reset it before you begin. Test while in safe mode. Same problem? After testing, reboot as usual (i.e., not in safe mode) and verify that you still have the problem. Post the results of the test.

  • I would like to change my back ground color in one frame for a logo that i am using I am able to change it on the canvas but not on the timeline?

    I would like to change my back ground color in one frame for a logo that i am using I am able to change it on the canvas but not on the timeline?

    Are you using FCPX? It doesn't have a canvas. Do you really mean one frame, like 1/30th of a second? Add a custom generator underneath the logo. Make it whatever color you want. Make it however short you want.

  • I attached my HDMI cable to my Samsung Tv. The "classic" apple screen comes up, but not the screen on my MacBook. Therefore I can't access my laptop.

    I attached my HDMI cable to my Samsung Tv. The "classic" apple screen comes up, but not the screen on my MacBook. Therefore I can't access my laptop.

    You have the display set in Extended Desktop mode with the MacBook as the main screen. The Menu Bar and Dock will be on the MacBook display and your background screen on the TV but you can move the cursor onto the TV screen.
    In System Preferences>Display on the MacBook screen there should be an Arrangement tab when you have the MacBook hooked up to the TV and both screens working. When you click the Arrangement tab do you see two monitors side by side? One of them will have a Menu Bar at the top. Just click on the Menu Bar and drag it to the second monitor. That will make the second monitor your main screen.
    The TV will now have the Dock and Menu Bar and windows will open on it. But you can move the cursor to the MacBook screen and move windows from the TV over to the MacBook screen.
    You can now use your MacBook in Clamshell Mode with a wired or Bluetooth keyboard and mouse.  http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3131 When you disconnect from the TV your Menu Bar will automatically change back to the MacBook.
    Or if you want to work on the MacBook screen while showing it on a TV you can check the Mirror Display box on the lower left hand side of the Arrangement tab under the two monitors box. That will give you the same screen at the same resolution on both the MacBook and the external monitor.

    How do i change my security question? I tried to buy music on itunes and it asked for verification i can not answer the security questions correctly...

    Reset Security Questions
    Frequently asked questions about Apple ID
    Manage My Apple ID
    Or you can email iTunes Support at iTunes Store Support.
    If all else fails:
      1. Go to: Apple Express Lane;
      2. Under Product Categories choose iTunes;
      3. Then choose iTunes Store;
      4. Then choose Account Management;
      5. Now choose iTunes Store Security and answer the bullet questions, then click
          Continue;
      6. Sign in with your Apple ID and press Continue;
      7. Under Contact Options fill out the information and advise iTunes that you would
          like your security/challenge questions reset;
      8. Click Send/Continue.
    You should get a response within 24 hours by email.
    In the event you are unsuccessful then contact AppleCare - Contacting Apple for support and service.
    Another user had success doing the following:
    I got some help from an apple assistant on the phone. It is kind of round about way to get in.
    Here is what he said to do and it is working for me...
      a. on the device that is asking you for the security questions go to "settings", > "store" >
          tap the Apple ID and choose view"Apple ID" and sign in.
      b. Tap on payment information and add a credit/debit card of your preference then select
          "done", in the upper right corner
      c. sign out and back into iTunes on the device by going to "settings"> "store" > tap the
          Apple ID and choose "sign-out" > Tap "sign -in" > "use existing Apple ID" and you
          should be asked to verify your security code for the credit /debit card and NOT the
          security questions.
      d. At this time you can remove the card by going back in to edit the payment info and
          selecting "none" as the card type then saving the changes by selecting "done". You
          should now be able to use your iTunes store credit without answering the security
          questions.
    It's working for me ...I just have to put in my 3 digit security pin from the credit card I am using.
    Good Luck friends!
