  • HT203175 I plugged my iPod into the computer and it says that my iPod is synced with another iTunes library, but it's not. So all my music and apps are gone. What can I do to remind the computer its the right iTunes library and get all my stuff back?

    Same as you would if you bought a pc; copy everything from your old computer to your new one.  Then you can just sync everything from the new computer, as you did with the old one.

  • My itunes says that my ipod is synced with another library when it is not and cannot update or sync without wiping it and all its data

    Can anyone help me

    Syncing to a new iTunes library or computer will erase your ipod. Only if you back up your iPod manually before syncing, you can restore your device from that backup again. A manual backup does not include the sync process.
    Do this:
    Disable autosync in iTunes, connect your iPod to your new computer and right click on it in the device list and choose backup. iTunes will backup your iPod without syncing.
    Transfer your purchases the same way, choosing "transfer purchases" this time.
    All media content will be erased during the first sync, 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 ipod for the first time.
    Music is one way only, from the computer to your device, unless you bought the songs in itunes and transferred your purchases.
    There is 3rd party software out there, but not supported by Apple, see this thread:http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=2013615&tstart=0

  • TS2776 My itunes says that my ipod is synced with another library when it is not and cannot update or sync without wiping it

    does any one know how to fix it

    The ipod touch will sync with one comptuer at a time.  Syncing to another will indeed erase the current content.
    Redownload the song on your ipod.
    Downloading past purchases from the App Store, iBookstore, and iTunes Store

  • Itunes is telling me that my iphone is synced with another itunes library, how is this possible if i only have one computer?

    The "manually sync music" box is unchecked and it wont let me check it without deleting the music currently on my iphone.

    That is true.
    You can either manually mange or sync, not both.
    If you change from one to the other, then it will erase the current content and replace with the content now selected.

  • Ipod is synced with another library.

    I rarely ever automatically sync my Ipod but decided to sync only one of my many genre's and received a message that my ipod is synced with another itunes and asks the question do I want to erase my ipod and sync with the current computer. Of course the answer to this question is heck no. I have music on my ipod that is not in the current itunes folder and I would lose it forever. So, how can I sync my ipod with the current computer. The previous Itunes is gone and its not going to ever be accessable to me again.

  • ITunes 8 - thinks my iPod was synced with another library

    Installed iTunes 8 - no issues with installation.
    Plugged in my iPod - message pops up that my iPod is synced with another library (which it has not been). Choices are to Erase and Sync, or Transfer Purchases.
    If I Erase and Sync I'm going to lose all of my playlists.
    But if I Transfer Purchases won't I lose anything I've downloaded since the last time I synced?
