Can I transfer playlists from my iPad to my new mac?

When I sync my iPad with my new mac I get a message that suggests that I can only transfer to the iPad from the mac.  I have playlists on my iPad that I would like to transfer onto my new mac.  Can this be done? And how?
Thanks

You can transfer the playlist (the actual list), but you can't make a copy of the music from the iPad to iTunes, unless they were purchased via iTunes.

    One way would be to e-mail them from yourself to yourself. That would totally avoid the different ID issue.

  • How can i transfer songs from my iPhone 4s to new mac

    I recently got a new MacBook (My first one ) but the problem is my old PC crashed and I lost all of my songs that were on that computer. The only songs I have left are on my iPhone. Is there anyway I could simply transfer the songs on my iPhone to my new MacBook? of course, when I go to "sync" my phone to my new iTunes, which is my old account, it says that everything will be erased and what is in my new iTunes library (which is empty) will be transfered to my phone.
    Please help!!!! I am still learning this MacBook so please forgive my stupidity! Go Team Apple!

    Re-downloading all your purchased music (apps, ibooks, videos, everything) is easy if you purchased them from Apple. Assuming they are still available, you simply download them again: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2519
    Retrieving music that you copied from CD or other sources is not easy. Music is supposed to go from your computer to the iPhone, not the other way around. Moving its content to a computer is contrary to the design.
    I wish I had a dollar for everyone with a Windows PC who asked this question. Given their predilection for attracting viruses and other sordid malware, Windows PCs crash with disturbing regularity. Now that you made the wise decision to replace it with a MacBook, get an external backup disk (external hard disk drive, or Time Capsule) and simply use Time Machine. Plug it in and Time Machine does the rest. The drudgery of backing up your system becomes painless and totally forgettable, and recovering from a crash becomes a non-event.
    Here is some guidance retrieved from an old post. Since it is old, some of the links may not work:
    For everything else (music from CDs, other downloads etc) there are a number of third party utilities that you can use to retrieve the music files and playlists from your iPod. You'll find that they have varying degrees of functionality and some will transfer movies, videos, photos, podcasts and games as well. You can read reviews and comparisons of some of them here:
    iTunes & iPod software
    Wired News - Rescue Your Stranded Tunes
    Comparison of iPod managers
    A selection of iPod to iTunes utilities:
    TuneJack Windows Only (iPhone and iPod Touch compatible)
    SharePod Windows Only (iPhone and iPod Touch compatible)
    iPod2PC Windows Only
    iDump Windows Only
    YamiPod Mac and Windows
    iPod Music Liberator Mac & Windows

    iRepo Mac & Windows (iPhone and iPod Touch compatible)

    There's also a manual method of copying songs from your iPod to a Mac or PC. The procedure is a bit involved and won't recover playlists but if you're interested it's available on page 2 at this link: Copying Content from your iPod to your Computer - The Definitive Guide

  • Can't transfer files from my PC to my new Mac over our wireless network

    I have a Linksys WRT54G router connected to a cable modem, which is connected to a desktop PC. I have a Dell laptop connected to the internet wirelessly, and my MacBook Pro is also connected to the internet wirelessly. No problem there, the internet works on both.
    However, I'm trying to transfer my files from the Dell to my new MacBook, and I get to the point where it asks for my username and password. I've typed in everything I can think of, and the Mac gives me Error -43, 'something or other is not found'.
    I don't remember ever assigning myself a username or password when I set up the wireless network. I've had no problem connecting to the Internet with the Dell laptop, but have never been able to share files or a printer with the desktop PC to which the router is connected.
    What's going on here?

    That would be the username & password of the user account on the Mac.

  • How do I transfer photos from an iPad to a new Mac?

    I had my previous Mac stolen when my house was broken into.  Luckily I had all my photos backed up on my iPad but I am now having problems transferring these photos onto my new Mac (since my iPad is still tied to my stolen Mac).
    Any suggestions?  Many thanks!

    The transfer of photos from your computer via the iTunes sync/transfer process is a one way transfer process only - from your computer to the iPad. The iPad is not designed or intended to be a backup storage device. Photos transferred from your computer are optimized for viewing on your iPad - the resolution of most or all of these photos is reduced on your iPad, which is why transferring these photos in the opposite direction is not supported.
    There are some 3Rd party paid utilities that provide for transferring these photos in the opposite direction, but such utilities are not supported by Apple and the original resolution of the photos will be lost. Here is one such utility that is Mac compatible.

  • Can I transfer pictures from my pc to a new mac via an ipod touch?

    Hiya
    So my new macbook pro is on it's way and i was trying to think of some easier file sharing from my old pc to my new mac than a thumbdrive back and fourth x amount of times.
    My Pc's wireless card burnt out or something like that happened that makes it impossible for the pc to connect to my wireless network unless i take it into a shop and pay x amount of dollars ha.(X this eliminates the possibility of my using dropbox or icloud to transfer files.
    So i was wondering if i could take a 3rd generation ipod touch, and download the pc's photos with itunes to the ipod then from the ipod to my mac with iphoto without losing quality?
    If theres any other ideas other than thumbdrives, and burning discs it'd be much appreciated
    Mainly i'd like to know if transferring files using my ipod touch would be a good idea or not? and if it could be done without losing quality.
    Thanks

    You should ask in the iPhoto and Ipod Touch forum areas.

    Is your music in your iTunes library on your PC/Mac?
    If so, you can sync the music to the new iPad using iTunes.
    If the music is not in your iTunes library but was purchased on the iPad you can transfer it to your iTunes library via iTunes Transfer purchases when your old iPad is connected to iTunes.
    If you have other music on your old iPad you can transfer it to your iTunes library with a third-party PC/Mac App like Senuti.

  • How can I transfer information from one ipad to another?

    how can I transfer information from one ipad to another ?

    What kind of information? You can sync things like Contacts and Calendars by using iCloud. You can backup one iPad to iTunes on a computer and then sync the backup to the other iPad. You can configure your iTunes content and sync the same content to both iPads.
    It is based on what you want to do. Or are you looking for a way to send files from one iPad to another wirelessly? There are apps to do things like that, as well as cloud services, such as DropBox.

  • Can i transfer everything from one ipad to another so both have exactly the same things

    Can i transfer everything from one ipad to another so both have exactly the same things?

    Yes. Copy your apps and other iTunes purchases/downloads to your computer's iTunes via File > Transfer Purchases (File > Devices > Transfer Purchases if you have iTunes 11 on your computer), then backup up the first iPad and restore that backup onto the second iPad.
    Backups and restores : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4079
    Things that aren't included in a backup include the contents of the Music and Videos apps (but they should be on your computer's iTunes) and photos that were synced from a computer. Also you will need to enter your passwords (email, wifi, website) on the second iPad - they won't be restored onto a different device, only back onto the device that the backup came from.
