HT201210 I get an error message saying that my firmware is not compatible with the update.  How do I resolve this?

I am trying to download and install the newest OS update for my iPhone4.  The install fails and I get an error message saying that my firmware is incompatible.  What do I do to resolve this?

Let's try a repair install of iTunes.
Restart the PC first.
If you're using Vista or 7, now head into your Uninstall a program control panel, select "iTunes" and then click "Repair".
If you're using XP, head into your Add or Remove Programs control panel, select "iTunes", and click "Change". Select "Repair" and click "Next" as per the following screenshot:
Can you launch your iTunes now?

  • I made the mistake of resetting my iPod to factory defaults. Now it will only partially sync to my music library. I continually get an error message saying that certain songs are not authorized for my computer. Any ideas?

    I made the mistake of resetting my iPod to factory defaults. Now it will only partially sync to my music library. I continually get an error message saying that certain songs are not authorized for my computer, although they are in the iTunes library on the computer and will play. It's these songs that won't transfer to the iPod. I have deauthorized and re-authorized the computer but no joy. Any ideas?

    Hello there DesertRat71,
    I was thinking that some of the songs in your library may have been purchased under a different apple id. You have already done the first thing I would have done by de authorizing and re authorizing. To verify this, highlight one of the songs that will not sync over and use File>Get Info. Here is the help menu link for it if you need it help://bookmark='https://help.apple.com/itunes/mac/11.0/help/index.html?localePa th=English.lproj#itns2937'
    In the Summary section there will be an Apple ID entry. If it shows something different than what you are currently using then I recommend signing into the Apple ID it shows and authorizing the computer for that one as well.
    All the best,
    Sterling

  • I am unable to back up my iPad on my pc. Message says backup was corrupt or not compatible with the iPad.

    I have been unable to sync my iPad with my pc since November 2013. The message that I receive is that "iTunes could not back up the iPad because the backup was corrupt or not compatible with the iPad. My iPad is running the most current update and my iTunes program is also the most recent update. What could be the reason for and solution to this problem?

    You might want to try deleting your old backup. That could be the source of the problem.
    Launch iTunes and go to Edit>Preferences>Devices>Your backup name. Click on your backup to select it, and then click on Delete. Click on OK.
    Connect your iPad to your computer and try again.

  • I get a error message saying that a song could not be copied to my Ipod

    Hi Everyone, I get a error message from itunes saying a song could not be copied to my iPod because it could not be found but the song is still on my iPod. Has anyone else had this problem and what can I do to Fix it. I am using the latest version of iTunes.
    I would appreciate any help,

    If you click on your iPod's name in the source area of iTunes, and click on the "Music" tab, what syncing option are you currently set for?
    If you're set for "Sync Music" with selected playlists in iTunes, be sure to double-check that the playlist(s) that are being synced to your iPod currenlty contain that song(s) that are having failure to sync to your iPod.
    If that isn't the case, go to your iTunes library, and click on the song that isn't syncing to your iPod.
    If there's no exclamation point next to it's name when selected, try playing the song and see if it plays; also, right-click on that song, click on "Get Info".
    Check and see if the source of the song on your computer is correct or not. (i.e., see if there's even that song title in the "iTunes" folder, or if it is corrupt).
    I hope that all makes sense.

    Trying to upload pictures to a website, but it doesn't work. After going thru the whole process, I get a message saying; the server attempted to redirect you. Server redirection is not supported. This only happened after I updated Firefox. Never had this problem before.

    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 another cable
    - 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.

  • I am trying to restore an older iPod Touch, but do not have the passcode.  I am getting an error message saying that I need to free up some space, but I cannot because I don't have the passcode and have never synced this device to my account.  Help..

    I am trying to restore an older iPod Touch, but do not have the passcode.  I am getting an error message saying that I need to free up some space, but I cannot because I don't have the passcode and have never synced this device to my account.  Help..

    If it is asking for the screen-lock passcode then:
    Place the iOS device in Recovery Mode and then connect to your computer and restore via iTunes. The iPod will be erased.
    iOS: Wrong passcode results in red disabled screen                         
    If recovery mode does not work try DFU mode.                        
    How to put iPod touch / iPhone into DFU mode « Karthik's scribblings        
    For how to restore:
    iTunes: Restoring iOS software
    To restore from backup see:
    iOS: Back up and restore your iOS device with iCloud or iTunes
    If you restore from iCloud backup the apps will be automatically downloaded. If you restore from iTunes backup the apps and music have to be in the iTunes library since synced media like apps and music are not included in the backup of the iOS device that iTunes makes.
    You can redownload most iTunes purchases by:
    Downloading past purchases from the App Store, iBookstore, and iTunes Store        
    If problem what happens or does not happen and when in the instructions? When you successfully get the iPod in recovery mode and connect to computer iTunes should say it found an iPod in recovery mode.
    Otherwise follow varjak paw recommendation

  • I bought the Keynote app for my MacBook, but when I open the application and try to install it, I get an error message saying that the application will not work with my MacBook. What gives? And, can I please request a refund? ($19.99 = a week's groceries)

    I bought the Keynote app for my MacBook, but when I open the application and try to install it, I get an error message saying that the application will not work with my MacBook. What gives? And, can I please request a refund? ($19.99 = a week's groceries).
    Thank you for your help! - I did try looking for all available specs about Keynote on the Apple iTunes website, and found nothing that could help me. HELP!

    1
    Close all iWork applications
    2
    Uninstall Keynote; this must be done with an application remover tool to delete the installation properly. Appcleaner is known to work correctly for this purpose, it is free and can be downloaded from here: Appcleaner Download
    3
    empty the trash
    4
    shutdown the Mac and restart. After the start up chime, hold down the shift key until the apple logo appears
    let the Mac complete the start up procedure completely, it will take longer than usual as the hard drive is being repaired
    5
    Reinstall Keynote by logging into the Mac App Store using download / install

  • When I download photos from a flash drive,everything is fine and they show in Events and Pictures, but when I click on the individual pic I get an error message saying that it cannot locate the JPG. Any thoughts?

    When I download photos from a flash drive,everything is fine and they show in Events and Pictures, but when I click on the individual pic I get an error message saying that it cannot locate the JPG. Any thoughts?

    It sounds like your iPhoto Advanced preferences are set to not copy photos during import, i.e. a Referenced library:
    Check your Advanced preferences to see if that's the case. If it is the best solution would be to select the checkbox to copy the photos and reimport the photos from the flash drive.  Then check the new import. It it was OK you can delete the previous event with the "missing" photos.

  • I need help! when I am importing my NEF files from my D3300 camera into lightroom 5 and try to use the "copy as DNG" button I always get an error message saying that "saying the file is not recognized by the raw format support"

    I need help! when I am importing my NEF Raw files from my D3300 camera into lightroom 5 and try to use the "copy as DNG" button I always get an error message saying that "saying the file is not recognized by the raw format support". The whole purpose of that button is so that the file can be recognized... How can I make the "copy as DNG" button work as it is supposed too?? Thank you

    Thank you for responding. So I essentially will never be able to use that button in lightroom 5? do I need to get LR 6? Will there ever be an update for LR 5 that will enable me to use it?
    Does DNG Converter work within LR or do I have to upload pictures to my computer and then make a second copy in DNG format. and then go into LR and use them?
    Thank you @dj_paige

  • When I try to download the latest update for my ipad, I get an error message saying that the internet timed out.

    When  I try to update my ipad with the latest software, I get an error message saying that the internet timed out.  What can I do?

    The update file is around 700 megs so if you're on a slow connection it does time out. You can also look into your anti virus software or firewall, it might be blocking the file. Also if you're trying to download it over 3G it won't work. There's a 20 meg cap on all 3G downloads.
