The link is to a discussion started on 12/18 in the FiOS Internet forum.  Here's the link I get now, however it is different than the link I pulled a few hours ago.  If this system changes the link again, it may not work.

You can also look for the topic, "frustration and just confused" in the FiOS Internet forum.
Here's a link that is in the thread that gives more detail.

    I have seen the Apple webpage suggesting the "five R's" (including restore).  Before doing anything, I want to be sure that restoring or any other action is not going to delete or risk my data. 
    I would be very grateful if anyone can suggest a fix for this problem, in a way that will not risk my data. 
    Thanks in advance!

    Did you try a hard reset with the iPod still connected to your PC?  Have you tried multiple USB ports, preferably high powered USB 2.0 ports?
    To do a hard reset, first make sure the hold switch is in the Off position, then press and hold both the Select (Center) and Menu buttons together long enough for the Apple logo to appear.
    Have you also worked through each and every single troubleshooting suggestion in this Apple support document?

  • I have a Mac G4 with a 10.3.9 OS and I want to update without losing any filters from my Photoshop 7. Should I go to 10,4 or higher?

    I have a Mac G4 with a 10.3.9 OS and I want to update without losing any filters from my Photoshop 7. Should I go to 10.4 or higher?

    Why do you need to update at all?
    In order to upgrade you will have to purchase a retail copy of either Tiger or Leopard neither of which are easy to come by, and they tend to be a bit expensive.  And, there's no assurance that the version of PS you now use will be compatible with a newer version of OS X.

  • I've had my new iPhone 6 Plus for about a month now and I'm just now syncing it with my computer to put music on it and it has been on Step 5 of 5 for hours now.  I have reinstalled iTunes to see if that was the problem with no luck.

  • HT201269 About transferring data between different devices, is it possible to swap memory chips between iPhone 5s's without losing any photos or info?

    I have an iPhone 5s and shattered its screen. I backed up its data to iTunes and manually replaced the screen myself. When I try to turn on the phone, it doesn't turn on. When I plug it into an outlet, it just makes a noise every five seconds. I purchased a new iPhone 5s and I tried to restore the data, but I couldn't retrieve it, just settings. I had a ton of important photos and songs I wrote....gone. Is it possible to simply swap the memory chips (both 16G) without damaging either devices or losing any data? Someone help me please!

    iPhones contain no user servicible parts.  IF you were to open the device, you would void any warranty associated, and Apple would no longer offer ANY service on the device (including out of warranty service).

  • Just got a new computer and I want to hook up my itouch and treat it just like i did with the last computer, without losing any data. What can I do?

    Help me please! I'm a new college student trying to make my new computer just like the family computer, which has all of my itunes, ipod sync "station", and etc.How can I hook up my iTouch to this new computer and treat it the same as i did on the old?
         P.S.-and just like everyone else, is there a way to do it without losing all my hard earned data?

    Make sure you cpt the iPod backup file from the old compouter to the new one.  That file is located here:
    Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup/
    Windows XP: \Documents and Settings\(username)\Application Data\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup\
    Windows Vista and Windows 7: \Users\(username)\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup\
    - after you move the other stuff to your new computer, connect the iPod to the new computer and restore the iPod from the backup you just added to the computer and then sync.

  • How to sync my iphone 4 (which is synced on my laptop currently) with my home computer where I also sync my iPad 2 without losing the data on my iphone 4?

    Hi there.  I have an iphone 4, which is currently synced with itunes on my laptop.  I also have an ipad 2 which is currently synced with a more powerful and storage capable home computer.  I would like to know if there is a way to sync my iphone 4 with my home computer, without losing my messages, apps, and other info.  I am using Windows 7 on both machines.  I don't know if there is a way to "merge" both itunes libraries for this?  Any help will be appreciated.

    I synchronize my contacts and calendars across multiple computers (and iPhones) via iCloud, but all of the devices end up with the same versions.
    I don't want our different mail accounts synchronized between computers, so I don't sync that with iCloud, but you can (I don't recommend it with your work computer).
    You should be able to sync the music with iCloud.
    Give it a try and see if that works for you.

  • How can I back up my iPhone and iPod to a new iCloud account without losing any data?

    Hello
    Before Mountain Lion comes out I want to create a new iCloud account because I don't want to use the @me.com email that I created with my current iCloud account. I want to create an entirely new account with a new @me.com email address. I use iCloud to back up my iPhone, iPod and am signed into it on my mac. Basically I want to back up my iPhone and iPod to a new iCloud account and not lose any data. Is there any way to do this?
    Thanks so much for any help.

    Before you connect to a new PC, make sure that autosync is disabled in Edit/Preferences/Devices, otherwise your phone will be wiped during the following sync.
    Then back up manually:
    Disable autosync in iTunes, connect your phone to the new computer and right click on it in the device list and choose backup. iTunes will backup your phone without syncing.
    Transfer the purchases the same way, choosing "transfer purchases" this time.
    When you connect your phone for the first time, all media content will be erased. But you can restore your settings and app data from your manual backup afterwards.
    Don't forget to set up at least one contact and event on your new computer to be able to merge calendars and contacts when you sync the phone for the first time.

  • HT5621 I have 2 email addresses ( 1 mac. and 1 blueyonder.) with separate Apple IDs for each ( again 1 mac and 1 blueyonder). This has consistently given me problems with passwords and I would now like to combine them into one account to help overcome thi

    I have 2 email addresses (1 mac.and 1 blueyonder.) each with separate identities and passwords. I am forever getting asked to verify identity and/or passwords and having these refused and me then having to set up new ones. Can I combine my email addresses to a single Apple Identity and Password? If yes then How?
    Any help much appreciated as this is driving me crazy!

    Depending on what you're asking...
    There is no means to merge Apple IDs.  You can change the mail address assocaited with your Apple ID, so you might switch to using and purchasing from one email address, and using the second as a backup.  (There's no means to merge the purchases, and related baggage.)
    While I'm guessing this was about Apple IDs, for completeness...  Combining the mail messages involving multiple email addresses is separate from the Apple ID; that is usually done with some combination of notifying the senders or with the forwarding of messages from one mail server to the preferred server.  Or running multiple mail accounts in parallel, depending on what you are up to.

  • How do you unsync your phone and sync it with another computer without losing any data?

    How do you unsync your iphone, without loosing any of the music etc? As I have a new laptop and my old laptop is not working.

    You need to transfer the data from your old computer to your new computer.  Surely you have a backup of your old laptop.  Use this and move your data to your new laptop.

    Greetings,
    AI Waveform Scan.vi and AI Sample Channel.vi each have a Channel(s) input. You do not have anything wired to these inputs. By default, these inputs are both Channel 0. You should wire "0" to one of these inputs and "1" to the other.
    Good luck with your application.

  • How can I take multiple Firefox bookmark libraries and combine them all on one computer without losing any? (importing results in an overwrite)

    If I have multiple saved Firefox bookmark files how can I combine them all into one?

    If you have JSON backups then easiest is to have two profiles open at the same time by using the -no-remote switch to open a second instance with its own profile.<br />
    Then you can restore the JSON backups in one profile and copy and paste the bookmarks to the Library of the other profile.

  • Can I set up I Cloud and change my mind without losing any data or photos?

    I have the Iphone, Ipad2 , and Macbook Pro and want to set up ICloud. I read a post that said, should you decide to NOT use it, you will lose all of your data and photos. Is this true?

    I set up an iCloud account and only use it for certain things. I do not use it on my Mac, even though I can, but I have chosen not to do so. I sync bookmarks, reminders, app data and documents (for Pages) but I did not setup an email account nor do I use Photo Stream. You can pick and choose what to want to sync to iCloud.
