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 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.

  • 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?

  • Why does my iPhone say that certain songs are not on my iPhone when they clearly are?

    Using the new "Purchased" button on the bottom of the iTunes app on my iPhone, when I tap "Not On This iPhone", it lists songs that are definitely on my iPhone. Is there a way to fix this?
    Furthermore, there are 47 pending downloads that I want to clear from the Downloads list. Is there any way to clear them or am I going to have to download them all and delete them?

    The "streaming" that iTunes Match does is not the traditional streaming we are used to. iOS 6 actually downloads the song to non-permanent memory on the iOS device in a cache. The advantage of this is it then makes the tracks available for listening to again without having to stream it again. You can clear out the cache by either power cycling the device or disabling/enabling iTM. I prefer doing the former.

  • I get an error message saying that the original file could not be located on about half the songs in my library. Not all but half.

    I'm unable to play approx. half the songs in my library. I get an error message saying that the original file could not be located. I am asked if I want to locate the file, I click locate and get  a screen with a list of confusing looking files and nothing seems to solve the problem. As is probably apparent by now I am not particularly computer literate. I don't understand why this problem occurs on only half my library.

    This "original file cannot be found" thing happens if the file is no longer where iTunes expects to find it. Possible causes are that you or some third party tool has moved, renamed or deleted the file, or that the drive it lives on has had a change of drive letter. It is also possible that iTunes has changed from expecting the files to be in the pre-iTunes 9 layout to post-iTunes 9 layout,or vice-versa, and so is looking in slightly the wrong place.
    Select a track with an exclamation mark, use Ctrl-I to get info, then cancel when asked to try to locate the track. Look on the summary tab for the location that iTunes thinks the file should be. Now take a look around your hard drive(s). Hopefully you can locate the track in question. If a section of your library has simply been moved, or a drive letter has changed, it should be possible to reverse the actions.
    Alternatively, as long as you can find a location holding the missing files, then you should be able to use my FindTracks script to reconnect them to iTunes .

  • I was trying to sync my itouch with my new mac, and some songs won't download because they are not authorized for this computer. But even after my computer was authorized they still won't sync. How do I fix this?

    I have the same problem. It is only with tv shows and only with programs I have downloaded after the software update.
    Apple support sent me the above link too....but it doesn't solve the problem...my computer is authorized and the content is in my library and will play on my Mac air, but it will not sync the tv shows, it keeps saying my computer isn't authorized for it.
    No answers here, but you are definitely not alone with this issue.

    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

    Hi Hans - I'll do my best
    First I assume you are logged in as adminstrator on the computer you are using. You mention only seeing Mojo Pac in your Program Files, but there would be far more programs listed there. There are several ways you can find your Apple Application Support file folder.
    For Windows XP - How to Search for a File or Folder
    To search for a file or folder:
    Click Start, and then click Search.
    In the Search Companion dialog box, click All files and folders.
    Type part or all of the name of the file or folder, or type a word or phrase that is in the file.
    So in your case it would be Apple Application Support.
    If it doesn't show, you will need to make sure that you have enabled the search for hidden files or folders.
    To search for hidden or system files in Windows XP:
    Click Start, click Search, click All files and folders, and then click More advanced options.
    Click to select the Search system folders and Search hidden files and folders check boxes.
    Then search again for the Apple Application Support folder.
    I'm assuming that you will locate it. Once you have done so - click on it to open it in Windows Explorer.
    Then you should locate libxml2.dll - right click on it and select (left click) Copy
    On the left side of the window, under Apple Application Support folder, you should see Mobile Device Support - Right Click on it - Select (Left Click) on Paste.
    Start your iTunes programme.
    Good Luck and let me know how you get on.

  • 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.
