Hi, just updated hubby's iPhone 4 and all of his music has disappeared from the iPhone and from the iTunes library! He does have music still stored on his iPod, but can't get it from the library on his iPod back to phone or itunes. technophobe help pls!

and all of his music has disappeared from the iPhone and from the iTunes library! Luckily he does have music still stored on his iPod, but I can't get it from the library on his iPod back to the phone or to itunes.Please help, but technophobe so put it in simple english please!

Sounds like the music you had on your phone was not the same music on his computer. The iPhone/iPod touch is not designed to be a storage device. When you sync with a computer that doesn't have your music, it deletes your music from your phone.
Was this music you purchased from iTunes? if so, and you are in the US, tap on itunes app, tap updates, tap purchased and tap on the cloud icon to get each song back. If you're not int he us, get iOS5 update later this week and do the same.
But you need to move your itunes library to his computer. Create a user account on his macbook pro for you. From your external drive backup, load your itunes library on it. Then sync as usual! (Don't tell me you don't have a backup for your computer!)

  • Connected to the network, but can't get out to the Internet

    Here’s my problem… After my previous router died, I recently installed a Netgear wireless router (WGT624NA) with 128-bit WEP security, and created a new wireless network. My Powerbook G4 found the network, and I was able to put in my WEP password, and everything seemed to work fine … for a while. In the last couple of days, I can’t get to any Internet sites.
    I’m connected to the wireless network fine, with a strong signal level, and I seem to be able to Ping out. But when I try to go to (any) Internet site on Safari, I now get “Safari can’t connect to the server”. I’ve gone through the Network Setup Assistant, put in the correct WEP code, and after hitting “continue” from the “You’re now ready to try connecting… “ screen, get “Unable to establish a network connection”.
    I seem to be connected, but can’t get out. Help.

    Hi there,
    A UPS (Uninterruptible power supply) is a battery back up, so if you power goes out you can finish up what you're working on and shut down normally.
    I had a similar incident this week, power went out all computers, modem and router went out. After power was restored all started up fine and looked good. Wireless router showed I was connected to the internet but could not surf any site. I had changed my email account password several weeks earlier (email account provided by my ISP) and did not think this had anything to do my boradband connection, but I was wrong.
    To make a long story short, I had to update the password as it related to my broadband connection. The connection was there, it just did not recognize my new password because I had changed it... If you control the account and you've changed any passwords associated with account yu will have to update or your landlord will have to update... make sense?

    1) You asked "Does she need to reconnect to that itunes/computer and if so what do we need to do to remove this folder of pics from her ipod?" Yes, you have to connect the iPod to that computer and go to the Photos pane for the iPod in iTunes and uncheck sync photos and the click on synce/apply. In the future do not check sync photos.

  • Bought a Mac Mini.  at 18 day's old it started to lock up and not function.  Took it in and they wiped and reinstalled it.  Well at 24 day's old it's been sitting in the box not being used.  First and last Mac for me. But can I get something for the junk?

    I have pulled it out of the box and put 2 Mac approved mem sticks in it to boost it to 8 Gigs mem and it still locks up and freazes..  So many people told me Mac was the way to go...  1500 dollers could have bought me a great pc laptop.  Now I have a wirless mouse keyboard and a mac mini (aka Brick) that allowed me to donate money to a cause that is helping buildings and companies out side of the US.  While I have junk..  It's still under warranty and I reinstalled the os after the new mem sticks.  Again.. locks up and does nothing.  What can I do with this?  Toss it in the trash?  Any info on what I might do with it.. Please help!

    It would be most helpful if you updated your system information:
    Please reconcile the following
    at 18 day's old it started to lock up and not function. Took it in and they wiped and reinstalled it. Well at 24 day's old it's been sitting in the box not being used.
    ... I reinstalled the os after the new mem sticks.
    If your Mini is anything less than six months old it would be running Lion, not 10.6.1, nor would it have been necessary to "reinstall the OS". Any help that anyone can provide is predicated on your system configuration so it's important.
    If you are running Lion then boot your Mini while holding the D key. This will load Apple Hardware Test which will enable you to test your memory. "Mac approved" memory is sort of vague, and even memory that is allegedly designed to meet your Mini's specification may fail. There few reputable memory vendors.
    "Apple installed" memory is more meaningful, and indicates Apple has tested it and guarantees its function. Otherwise all bets are off with a claim of "Mac approved". You will have to verify that yourself with Apple Hardware Test.
    If your Mini was running, or ever ran OS 10.6.1 for that matter, it is close to three years old.
    You must clear up these uncertainties before anyone can help.

  • Want to use iphone 4s as ipod but can't get past activation

    My brother sent his iPhone 4s in to have a replacement.  When he got the new one back he never used it and he closed his account with ATT.  He has a work phone that is paid for him now and doesn't need it.  I asked him if he'd send it to me to use.  I wanted to use it as an iPod, but I can't get past the activation.  I'm being told by the phone that I need a sim card to activate it but I don't have a sim and I have phone service already so I don't need to go get it turned on.  It's a perfect little piece of equipment that I'd love to use but I can't.  Can anyone please help me?

    USING AN IPHONE AS AN IPOD
    Restore your phone as new.  Place a SIM card into the phone and connect it your computer with iTunes open and follow the activation assistant to activate the iphone.  Once the iphone have been activated remove the SIM card and turn on imessage in settings/messages.  Only your Apple ID should appear in the “You can be reached by imessage at” and “Start new conversation from” fields.  Read the following article for help http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3406

  • My back button no longer works, all of my bookmarks have disappeared and I cannot add new ones, and all of my history has disappeared.

    I have looked at prior questions, many of which look similar, but none of which are exactly the same. I tried to restore my bookmarks to those available on a prior date, and got an error message saying "unable to process the backup file."

    Figured it out! I deleted the places.sqlite folder by dragging it into the trash, then rebooted. I lost all my existing bookmarks, but that was no big deal.
    To find the places.sqlite folder, go to Help, Troubleshooting Information, click on "show in finder" (under application basics), and the folder is in there. I was very nervous about deleting anything, but Firefox just regenerates the folder when you reboot.

  • My Macbook Pro began crashing when I tried running safari. An error message came up asking that I repair the HD volume. Before I was able to run repair, computer shut down. Now I can not get it to boot. I tried booting in safe mode to no avail. Pls help.

    Can someone please help me with a Macbook Pro booting question?
    Recently, my mid 2010 MacBook Pro has started acting up when I am on Safari. Safari would unexpectedly crash multiple times in a row, then run fine for a while, then again, crash repeatedly. Not long after this began happening, an error message from my Prosoft Drive Genius 3 software, threw out a message that a serious error had occurred and I needed to repair the HD volume. Before I was able to run the software to repair the HD volume, the machine stopped working. I turned off the Macbook and when I tried to restart, it would not boot. I have since removed all external hardware from my machine and tried several times, unsuccessfully, to boot. I have also tried booting in safe mode when also does not work.
    Any suggestions?  Thanks for your help.

    Try SMC reset:
    Plug in the MagSafe power adapter to a power source, connecting it to the Mac if its not already connected.
    On the built-in keyboard, press the (left side) Shift-Control-Option keys and the power button at the same time. (four keys together)
    Release all the keys and the power button at the same time.
    Press the power button to turn on the computer.
