If you see Devices in the big list on the left-hand side of iTunes, it should show the name of your iPhone right below it. You can right-click (or hold ctrl and left click) on the name of the iPhone there, and choose "transfer purchases from iPhone".
If you're on iTunes 11, you won't see the big list of the left until you go to the View menu at the very top (where you see iTunes/File/Edit/View/etc) and choose Show Sidebar. Then do the same thing: right-click or ctrl and left-click on the iPhone's name below Devices and "transfer purchases from iPhone".
It'll ask you to authorize the computer for your Apple ID if you haven't yet; to do that, you just type your Apple ID and password in when it asks. If it says you are not authorized but doesn't automatically give you an option to do so, then you can go to the Store menu at the very top and choose "authorize this computer".

  • My laptop hard drive crashed - when I go to sync my iPhone it says that my phone is already synced with another computer and can only be synced with one computer at a time.

    My Dell laptop hard drive crashed - when I go to sync my iPhone it says that my phone is already synced with another computer and can only be synced with one computer at a time. When I hit sync is says it will erase my phone and sync with the new computer which is blank. How do I get my phone to sync my contacts, pics, apps etc. over to my new hard drive without losing anything.

    Yes, so what's confusing... Did you not restore the backup of your data, contacts, pics, apps, music, etc. to the new hard drive after you replaced it or reformatted it or whatever you did? If so, then you can just sync your data back.
    If not, please try searching the forum. This has been addressed hundreds of times here.

  • I bought a new computer, and i have transfered everything using home share, file transfers, etc.. yet still when i go to sync, itunes tells me ipod can only be synced with one computer... is there a way to retire the relationship with the old computer?

    i bought a new computer.  the itunes app allows for home shareing, file transfers, etc.. but i want to discontinue the syncing with the old computer and sync my ipod touch now only on my new system... but i cant seem to disconnect that old relationship at all.. when i try to syncit says that my ipod is already synced with another computer, do i want to discontinue that and only use the new informationon this computer?  i dont want to do that yet because it doesnt seem like everything has come over, and i am afraid of losing songs that i downloaded from cds, etc..

    if you don't want to sync it because you don't think that everything has been transferred then i would check first if you can, before you commit to used only the data from your new computer.
    though, im not sure if this is true, but i think that when you sync your ipod to a new computer it will take the items from your ipod and put it on itunes, like when you purchase something on your ipod and it gets automatically transfered, but don't take my word for it.

  • GroupLayout can only be used with one Container at a time

    Dear all,
    I am a beginner so please don't throw rocks at me...
    I have created two frames with NetBeans. One is the main frame (extends from JPanel) and the other frame I put it to be started when pressing a button from the main frame (the second frame extends from JFrame). Both frames are created using the designer in NetBeans, so the code for creating the GUI is automatically generated by NetBeans, so both frames use the same layout (GroupLayout).
    Here is the code of the button from the main frame to start the second one:
    private void manageCustomersActionPerformed(java.awt.event.ActionEvent evt) {                                                
            // TODO add your handling code here:
            CustomerGUI custGUI1=new CustomerGUI();//CustomerGUI is the second frame
            custGUI1.setVisible(true);
    }When I press this button from the main frame I get this runtime exception: Exception in thread "AWT-EventQueue-0" java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: GroupLayout can only be used with one Container at a time. The second frame is not opened.
    How should I handle this?
    What I want to do: I want to have a main frame, from which I can start additional ones (the main frame must be always opened, while the additional ones can be closed after performing certain actions). I read a little about internal frames and I think this can be a solution, but I must edit the existing design...
    Thank you
    With respect,
    Don

    There are those that maintain that JFrame should never be extended. I am not convinced, but most cases where a JFrame is extended would be better coded as simply configuring the JFrame within the main(). GUI builders such as found in NetBeans seem to extend JFrame as a matter of course.I too am not rigorous or religious about this either, but try to adhere to this as a matter of practicality and convenience, I find that if I don't extend a JComponent but rather use composition rather than inheritance, it's much easier to use objects of my class when programming in Eclipse. For instance in Eclipse (and in most IDEs), if I type my object name and then a period, it will show all of the method's available for me to use on this object. If I subclass JPanel or JFrame, I'll see a gazillion methods most I don't want to see, and thus most are clutter. On the other hand if I use composition, I'll only see a small number of methods and these will be only the methods that I want to see and need to use.

  • My computer was stolen and I cannot transfer my music from my Iphone to a new PC with I-tunes.

    I had all my music in my I-tunes library of a computer that was stolen. I bought a new PC and installed I-tunes. Even if I log in with my apple store account this new I-tunes does not accept a transfer between my iphone and my pc. And I cannot add new music to my i-phone from this new computer using I-tunes. I can do it using another software, but since we users of Iphone are stuck with Itunes, I want this new Itunes to recognize my iphone music library and let me use it.
    Is there any way to do this?
    Thanks.

    When syncing your iPhone to the new computer, it will want to erase and sync. This is because an iPhone can only be synced to one computer at a time. You can attempt to transfer purchases from the iPhone to your computer, but keep in mind that this will only transfer the music that was purchased from iTunes. Any other music that you have on your device will be lost during the syncing process. If you wish to transfer that music from the iPhone to the new computer as well, you will have to browse Google for some third party software that has been designed to do this. iTunes does not offer this ability, as this is to prevent digital piracy.
    Hope this helps.

  • HT1229 How do you transfer photos to external backup and keep the photos in events with event name or with description name. Each time I have tried to transfer them they only transfer with a jpg number so you don't know what photos are what.

    How do you transfer photos to external backup and keep the photos in events with event name or with description name. Each time I have tried to transfer them they only transfer with a jpg number so you don't know what photos are what. When you have several thousand photos it is difficult to determined what is what.
    Why does iPhoto have the ability to put photos in events and to give them descriptions if it doesn't transfer this info with the photo. I want to back my photos up to an external drive.

    The simplest way to achieve what you want is to back up the iPhoto Library. That will get everything.
    You sem to be exporting from iPhoto to the Finder. The Finder does not have the same organisation capabilities as iPhoto. If you're going to do that you need to understand some of the differences between the two.
    Event Name will become  Folder Name.
    'Description Name' I guess is the Title you give the Photo
    Jpeg Number is the File Name assigned by your camera.
    So: File -> Export
    Set your Kind to Jpeg
    Select your preferred Quality
    Check the Boxes at 'Titles and Descriptions' and Location Information
    Under FIlename select 'Use Title'
    Click on Export. In the Next Window choose a New Folder as your export destination and then Name that as you prefer
    Regards

    I upgraded my new iPad (iPad 3) to IOS 6 and everything went well except Siri won’t launch apps. When asked say “launch Facebook” Siri responds with “it doesn’t look like you have an app named Facebook” and I get the same results when trying to launch any app. Siri works for everything else it just won’t launch apps. Any ideas? Thanks.

  • I accidentally deleted my whole i tune library. I was able to retrieve the entire library, but all my play lists have dissapeared and iTunes says that my ipod is not synced with this computer. Can i sync my playlists from my ipod to my itunes?

    i accadentally deleted my entire library (over 10,000 song) when i was trying to delete an old back up file off an external hard drive. Now when i open I Tunes and connect my ipod, a message says tht my ipod is not synced with this computer. This is the only computer this ipod has ever been synced to, so i don't know how to reconnect the two. I was able to restore all my music to the itunes library, but I lost all my playlists. I spent considerable time creating the playlists and they are stll on my ipod. Can I somehow sync in a way that my ipod can give the computer my play lists?

    With your iPod connected to iTunes right->click on it's device name in the left hand pane of iTunes under devices and select Export Playlists.

  • I have an IPhone 5, and of course I have used ITunes. My Computer has been completely destroyed, so I have to Purchase a new one. How can I transfer my music from my iPhone to my New PC?

    I have an IPhone 5, and of course I have used ITunes. My Computer has been completely destroyed, so I have to Purchase a new one. How can I transfer my music from my iPhone to my New PC?

    The way I do it is I hook to my windows computer, it will pop up iTunes. I click iTunes off. The phone will show as another drive on your computer. Click it open then migrate to the photos folder from the iPhone.
    Then select all, cut then right click on your pictures folder on your computer or make a new folder on your desk top like I do and right click on new folder and select paste.
    Photos will be gone. Just remember to turn off the iPhone sync in your photos folder on the phone or they will come back
    Good Luck

    Hi,
    PSC 1315 no longer supported for scanning since Mac OS X v10.5 or while using any newer OS, there is no scan software provided by either HP or Apple (Image Capture)
    You may find this information stated below for Leopard, the same apply for any newer OS version:

    Image capture will not recognize your device as well, only print is supported as you may find listed for teh PSC 1310 Series below:
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3669#HP
    Although there is no official scanning support for your device you may still try the 3rd party VueScan software which list your scanner as supported and compatible with Mountain Lion:
