HT4972 I replaced the computer I originally used to synch my iPhone. I get the message stating that my content will be erased, even though this is the computer I now synch with. Is there a way to make the update recognize the new computer?

I replaced the computer I originally used to synch my iPhone. When trying to update to iOS5.0, I get the message stating that my content will be erased, even though this is the computer I now synch my phone with. Is there a way to make the update recognize the new computer so that my content will be kept?

The best option is to copy your entire iTunes folder from your old computer to your new one using one of the methods described here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4527.  This will allow iTunes on your new computer to recognize and sync with your phone without deleting content.  You will also need to copy over any other synced data not in your iTunes library such as photos synced to your phone, calendars and contacts.
If you can't do this, these articles will help you start syncing with your new computer with minimal or no data loss:

  • Is there a way to make Illustrator save in the background, like Photoshop?

    Out of Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator, Illustrator is definitely the one I have most problems working with, due to small UI differences and ways of handling things
    Like the fact that you can't drag next to a number to change it, like in Photoshop. Or the fact that I can't sync my settings (it only says "Signed in as:", and when I press Manage Account, I'm taken to my CC files in Safari).
    But most annoying is the fact that whenever I'll save a document in Illustrator, a dialogue box opens letting me know the progress of the saving. Not only does this make me unable to continue working on the document (if the file is large, it takes some time), the app icon starts jumping in the dock if I switch to another program before the box appears.
    So, is there any way to make it save in the background, like in Photoshop? I'm running OS X, with Illustrator version 17.1.0.

    This really frustrates me, small differences between the apps that shouldn't be there.
    I understand you can't change the keyboard shortcuts to be the same/similar, but this is totally different. Let's hope it changes soon.

  • Is there a way to make comments "move to the back", behind the text and lines?

    Is there a way to make comments "move to the back", behind the text and lines?
    I am using Acrobat X Standard to "highlight" lines using comments lines at 12pt width and 50% opacity on DWG files converted to PDF.  The opacity setting makes the text and lines readable behind the highlighting, but the colors do not print well.  Moving the highlighting behind the existing text and lines would allow me to use 100% opacity with more vibrant colors.
    Before, we highlighted by hand, but those colors do not scan or copy well.  Digitizing the highlighting is cleaner, and can be edited without starting over.  The "comments" lines can be applied by Acrobat Reader, Acrobat Standard, and Acrobat Pro, so there's an advantage.  Even more important is that the average file size of an 11x17 print that is highlighted and scanned in color is 1000 KB, while doing it this way, they tend to be 100-150 KB, and the text remains searchable. If there's another system that people use, I'm open to that instead.  I haven't looked in to doing the highlighting in AutoCAD.
    Naturally, everything I'm doing is protected, and cannot be shared, sorry.
    Thanks.

    No, that's not really an option.

  • Is there a way to make all page margins the same?

    I've exported a book file from indesign. Since the pages were in a book-type spread, the odd and even pages have different margins. The odd page has the bigger margin on the left, while the even has the bigger margin on the right.  Is there any way to make these identical after the fact. I can't go back and redo the indesign file.

    Thanks, there are 382 pages. Can't do them one by one.  And I purposely made the margins different in indesign, to give people more space in the middle.  The margins are as follows:
    But when I try to reverse the inside outside on one page of the spread, just reverse them, so the dimensions are the SAME, all the text and photos move.

    Put the device back into discovery mode and the iPad will see it again. Make sure the Bluetooth is ON in Settings and look at the devices seen.

  • I have downloaded the HD version of a movie from itunes, but when I sync it to my iPad 2 it will not play. It appears that it is on the iPad, but it will not play. Is this because it is HD, and if so is there a way to change it from being HD? Thanks

    I'm having a similar problem ... just used my iPad 2 to purchase the Bourne trilogy and it downloaded fine but I did not try to play it right away.  Then I plugged the iPad into the computer and it downloaded the SD versions of the movie and I used iTunes to sync my movies.  Then I tried to play it and it said it could not open the movie.  I then did a full iPad restore and did a fresh sync and now I get the Cannot Opne pop up.  Did you ever find an answer to your question?

  • HT4528 Howdy.  I keep getting a message stating that my apple ID has been disabled.  I recently contacted my CC company, AMEX, for several fradulent iTune charges, which is probably where the problem first originated.  How can I resolve this issue?

    Howdy.  I keep getting a message stating that my apple ID has been disabled.  I recently contacted my CC company, AMEX, for several fradulent iTune charges, which is probably where the problem first originated.  How can I resolve this issue?

    I had to dispute several unauthorized charges to itunes. My apple id was disabled after that. I followed jarnoldus's (older post) advice and it worked. Im duplicating his entry here with a few modifications. I hope this works for you.
    1. Go to https://getsupport.apple.com
    2. Choose your product (mine was ipad)
    3. Click the "iTunes, App Store or iBooks" icon
    4. Click "Apple ID account security"
    5. Type in "apple id has been disabled"
    6. Choose your country (mine was US)
    7. Choose the "talk to apple support now" option
    8. Provide the info they request (name, email, phone number)
    9. They will call you right away.
    Explain your apple id has been disabled. The rep will connect you to an iTunes rep. He/she will look up your account. You will be required to answer your 3 security questions. You MUST get a minimum of 2 correct. If you succeed they will enable your id. Good luck!

    Sounds like Firefox is "hanging at exit". That problem is frequently caused by an Extension or a Plugin. Read all of the following articles.<br /><br />

    the apps will not be deleted if the itunes is authorised for the apple id from which you downloaded the apps.
    for the songs if you have downloaded it from a store other than itunes an app "TuneAid" will help you. download the full version then you can copy all the songs on the ipad to ur itunes library

    Can't install itunes on windows 7 machine. I keep getting A message stating that I don't meet min. requirements, but the machine has more than enough. What do I need to do to correct this?

    Are you trying to install the 32-bit version on a 64-bit machine, or vice versa?
    For general advice see Troubleshooting issues with iTunes for Windows updates.
    The steps in the second box are a guide to removing everything related to iTunes and then rebuilding it which is often a good starting point unless the symptoms indicate a more specific approach. Review the other boxes and the list of support documents further down the page in case one of them applies.
    The further information area has direct links to the current and recent builds in case you have problems downloading, need to revert an older version or want to try the iTunes for Windows (64-bit - for older video cards) release as a workaround for performance issues or compatibility with third party software.
    Your library should be unaffected by these steps but there is backup and recovery advice elsewhere in the user tip.

  • I had photoshop on my hp and it stopped working, it says error 16. I already tried uninstalling and reinstalling it and nothing works. Also I just bought a Mac, is there any way i can transfer photoshop to my new computer?

    I had photoshop on my hp and it stopped working, it says error 16. I already tried uninstalling and reinstalling it and nothing works. Also I just bought a Mac, is there any way i can transfer photoshop to my new computer?

    Look at this guide:
    Configuration error 16 | CC, CS
    I don't know what version you have, but you cannot install a Windows edition on a Mac, you need the Mac edition.
    If you have Photoshop CS6, you can swap it for a Mac version, otherwise you would have to purchase a full Mac version ($700) or enroll in the $10 per month Photography program from Adobe to use Photoshop CC.
