How can I switch from Automatic to Manual update without losing songs?

I have on my ipod songs from another computer, however I'm afraid to plug it into my computer because my computer is set to automatic update for my ipod. Is there a way for me to switch my ipod to manual update without losing songs on my ipod when plugging it in? thanks.

Here is what you do:
Open iTunes.
Plug in your ipod.
hold control and shift at the same time. this stops your ipod from updating automatically. Hold this until your ipod is finished docking.
Then go to edit>preferences>ipod
then change the setting from update automatically to update manually.

    how do i switch from automatic to manual download of my songs to my ipad in my itunes library

    You can still manually add songs to the iPad even if the option is not set. Just drag them to iPad same way as when the option is set.
    Select the iPad, click the Summary tab and tick Manually manage music and videos.

    So My question is
    How to switch from auto_login keystore to password-protected keystore ?

    Remove the cwallet.sso file and check the wallet status in v$encryption_wallet.
    If it is not opened, try to open it with administer key statement.
    Check the status again.

  • HT201320 How can I switch from one email user to another?

    How can I switch from one email account to another?

    You have to select between the two accounts in the mail app.
    Say for instance that you are reading an email in your XYZ email account. Tap the button in the upper left corner of the mail app to back out all the way to where you can see all of the email accounts.... Tap InBox, then tap XYZ email Account and that will take you back to the main MailBoxes window.
    Is that what you want to know? There is no way to simply "toggle" between the two accounts.

    I'm overseas and need to sync my iphone with itunes but I don't have my computer. How can I sync it to my friends computer without losing my music and data?

    Why do you need to sync your iPhone with iTunes - for what purpose?
    You can transfer iTunes content and photos from one computer only. When transferring iTunes content and photos from another computer, all iTunes content and photos transferred from a different computer will be erased from the iPhone first with a warning message provided beforehand indicating this will occur.

  • Go from manually update to auto-update without losing songs?

    I was trying to delete some podcasts from my ipod, and was following the directions on the help menu which told me to go to preferences and choose manual update, then delete. I tried it, and it didn't work. When I decided to go back to auto update, I received a message that everything on my ipod would be deleted and the update would be just what is on the itunes on that machine. I have more than one computer, and have itunes on each one. There are different songs on each computer. If I go to manually update on this computer, it will erase the songs I've put on from other computers. All this and I still have the unwanted podcasts. Can anyone help me to go back to auto-update without losing songs? If worse comes to worst I guess I'll have to update, lose the songs, and then re-update at my other computers. thanks.

    Afraid that's not possible. If you go to auto-update, the iPod gets cleared and replaced with the current contents of the iTunes library.

  • MacBook Pro2012 : How can you get hard drive upgraded in Netherlands without losing warranty?

    My MacBook Pro (2012) hard drive is almost full, Apple refuses to provide hard drive upgrade service, how can you get hard drive upgraded in Netherlands without losing warranty?

    Dear Ralph, and All
    My MBP is indeed non-retina.
    I also have Apple care support for 3 years
    I was in touch with Apple suport since last week. Response I got on Phone was pretty astounding (waiting email confirmation). They say following
    - Apple support does not provide such service of upgrading hard drive
    - Doing it yourself means you will lose warranty (due to nature of operation one would need to perform on the computer)
    - None of authorised delars will provide such a service
    So as such there apparantly is no way to get your hard drive upgraded without losing warranty.
    Leaves me a bit perplexed
    I do understand MBP retina (or iPAD / iPhones) are manufactured in way that makes it technically impossible to upgrade certain parts. But why non-retina MBP?
    What do you all think? is this reasonable? is this what a MBP customer would expect?
    Really appreaciate the quick responses i have recieved from you and others on this forum.
    Many thanks

  • How do I downgrade from Lion to Snow Leopard without losing iWork 09?  I upgraded my MBP from 10.5 (originally 10.4) to 10.6, then again to 10.7.  Should I go back to 10.4, 10.5 or just to 10.6?

    How do I downgrade from Lion to Snow Leopard without losing iWork 09?  I upgraded my MBP from 10.5 (originally 10.4) to 10.6, then again to 10.7.  Should I go back to 10.4, 10.5 or just to 10.6? I don't remember which system included iWork 09 and don't want to lose it. Thanks for any help.

    Thanks for the information!  My sister gave me the MBP for my daughter with Leopard installed.  I purchased Snow Leopard and installed it, then my daughter purchased Lion.  So I do have all the installers.  If iWork wasn't included with any of those, I guess my sister purchased it while running Leopard.  I'll have to contact her.  Thanks again.

  • How can I switch from photos saved as MPEG4 in a slideshow to individual JPEG photos?

    When I imported pictures from my camera, I inadvertantly saved them as a slideshow.  In order to be able to burn these to a CD that will play on a DVD player or Windows computer, it seems the pictures need to be saved as individual JPEGs, not MPEG4.  How can I change the format, or switch the view?

    An mpg4 is a movie, you can't break that apart to individual frames, I'm afriad. However, I do not believe this is correct:
    In order to be able to burn these to a CD that will play on a DVD player or Windows computer, it seems the pictures need to be saved as individual JPEGs
    To play on a DVD player you need to use an application that can author such a disk. iDVD if you have it, or Toast. Search on MacUpdate

  • How can I switch from the itunes store and go to my iphone/ipad section?

    If I want to add or uncheck some music. etc..   Right now I have to close out itunes take off my iphone and plug it back in to get there.  Kind of a pain.  In other words when I am at the iphone console and click the store, I can not get back to the iphone console without closing and unplugging and plugging back in, real pain.  Old itunes never had this problem.

    Click Done in the same spot you clicked to got to the store. Another option is to press Ctrl+S to show that sidebar and then the device will be listed like iTunes 10
    Hope that helps
