How to Avoid itunes and nano Wipeout in Move to Mac?

I have a new Mac and transferred over all of my itunes files from the PC to the Mac, and both the PC and Mac are both set up and are within the limit of 5 computers. My nano has been used with the PC and has all of those files on it. Now I want to start using the Mac instead with the Nano.
1) How do I now sync the Nano with the Mac for the first time?
2) If I sync the Nano for the first time with the Mac will it wipe out what is on the MAC or overwrite all of the files I transfered to the Mac?

I have to answer your questions in reverse.
YES, it will REFORMAT the iPod, erasing EVERYTHING.
In iTunes, click on your iPod icon on the sidebar and click on the RESTORE button. It will reformat your iPod for use on Mac. If you are using iTunes 6 or older, then use the iPod Software Updater.

  • How do I play and then copy DVD movie to mac for film editing

    I have just come home with my new mac book pro.  As recomended by the reseller I have connected an external  slim portable DVD writer/reader so that I can view, ...DVD's.  I am unable to view or copy the file contacts to the mac so that I can then later open the file in imovie for editing and clipping.
    I would very much appreciate your assistance on this.  I am trying to make a home movie of old cine films that have been converted to DVD.

    You need to use a video encoder such as Handbrake (Free)
    https://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/12987/handbrake
    or
    iFFMpeg - Shareware ($20.40)

    Once encoded you can edit using Final Cut or iMovie

  • How to uninstall itune and reinstall it again?

    how to uninstall itune and reinstall again?

    Before you try un-installing iTunes you need to de-authorize the computer (otherwise, as I found out the hard way, iTunes will think that you've got 2 authorized computers on your account instead of just one).  You should also make sure that you have full backups of all your media content.  You can also back up the iTunes library file which contains your ratings, play counts, etc... which, depending on the size of your library, will save a bucketful of time after the re-installation.
    If you've on a pc then the uninstall itself works the same way as if you were uninstalling any other software: go to Add or Remove Programs, select iTunes, click "Remove"... and wait (it'll take a while to complete).  Then go to the iTunes website and download it.
    After that, you can re-load your media files, and import the library, from your backups.  iTunes should work just as well as it did before the re-installation.
    Hope this helps!

  • ITunes:  I just redeemed a gift card in iTunes and then rented a movie.  I want it charged to the gift card but think that it was charged to my credit card.  How do I ensure the charges are against the gift card?

    iTunes:  I just redeemed a gift card in iTunes and then rented a movie.  I want it charged to the gift card but think that it was charged to my credit card.  How do I ensure the charges are against the gift card?

    I took this straight from the help menu.
    You need to set up an Apple ID for use with the iTunes Store before you can redeem anything in the iTunes Store. You don’t need to enter credit card information to redeem only the amount of a gift certificate or card.
    Hide 
    Use an iTunes allowance, gift certificate, or iTunes Gift Card
      If you aren’t already signed in to the iTunes Store, choose Store > Sign In, or click Sign In at the top of the iTunes Store window. 
      Below Quick Links, click Redeem, and follow the onscreen instructions.
    The amount in your account appears to the left of your account name. When you click the Buy button to make purchases, the amount changes to show how much money remains in your account.
    You can use a gift certificate only in the iTunes Store for the same country in which the certificate was purchased.

  • WHAT THE HECK! eversince I updated my itunes... My laptop keeps on crashing, i try to change the volume on itunes and it doesnt even move, and I quit Itunes but apparently it won't ever quit... I lost all my  paper work cuz it crashed 4 times this week.

    Try disabling the computer's antivirus and firewall for the network problem.
    Also for the original problem try the following if Ana's suggestions does not work
    Try:
    - iOS: Not responding or does not turn on
    - Also try DFU mode after try recovery mode
    How to put iPod touch / iPhone into DFU mode « Karthik's scribblings
    - If not successful and you can't fully turn the iOS device fully off, let the battery fully drain. After charging for an least an hour try the above again.
    - Try on another computer
    - If still not successful that usually indicates a hardware problem and an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store is in order.

  • How do I hide and unhide photos in Photos for Mac

    How do I hide and unhide photos in Photos for Mac ? Also, how do I delete an Album ? It appears that Photos is a work in progress that is only about 10% done. The Help in Photos is essentially useless. Where can I find the equivalent of a manual or instruction book?

    How do I hide and unhide photos in Photos for Mac ?
    You can hide photos in the Photos view, but not in the albums:
    Select some photos, ctrl-click, select "Hide".  Unhide from the Hidden Album.
    Also, how do I delete an Album
    You can only delete albums that you created, not the built-in albums.
    Select the album in the Sidebar. Ctrl-click it. Select "Delete Album".

    All of my music files are on my external hard drive. I moved my itunes media folder to my external hard drive. I have 150 gig of music and only 25 gig free on my macbook, so I'd like to put it all on my ipod without putting it on my computer, as there isn't enough memory. Every time I try to move the music from my external hd to itunes it starts adding music to my computer's internal hard drive- i thought this would be solved by having my media library in my external hd but it isn't I'm not sure how to get around this.

  • How to play iTunes and music from external hard drive?

    I recently back up all my music from my old computer on to an external hard drive. I have a new computer but don't want to store all the music on the computer's hard drive. I would rather play iTunes and all the music straight off of the hard drive. How do I do this?
    I already downloaded and installed iTunes on my external hard drive and my music is on a separate folder. When I open iTunes it says that I have no music in the library. How do I tell iTunes to use all the music from the external hard drive? I do not want to save anything on my computer's internal hard drive if possible because I do not have enough space.
    Thanks for the help. Also, if I should clarify anything else then please just let me know!
