I recently updated my e-mail address with apple, but now it does not show all the "purchased" music that I purchased under my old e-mail address.  How can I re-gain access to those hundreds of purchased songs?

You are trying to find a loophole to circumvent a basic rule that prohibits the transfer of purchased content from one Apple ID to another.
Content tied to an Apple ID are bound to that Apple ID forever. You can not merge or trade accounts. Well, not (officially) anyway...

  • Tried to update iPod, failed, no new drivers installed. Now iPod does not show in my computer or in iTunes.

    Anyone know how I can update/unbrick this iPod? It's useless. It's stuck on the screen that says connect to iTunes. iTunes doesn't know it's there. My computer doesn't know it's there. It's not the USB port.
    Please don't direct me here - http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1808 - already tried, no results.
    Last time it was a missing driver for iTunes but iTunes says nothing new is needed. Help appreciated.

    Let me try this again. My computer said my iPod needed an update. I clicked ok. iTunes said it was doing the update. I browsed the internet. I came back to it after it was done, and it said update failed, no new drivers installed. Now my iPod touch is a brick. I cannot use it for anything. You know that screen that shows the usb cable, a white arrow, and iTunes? It's stuck there. No amount of pushing the sleep/wake button and home button will convince it to go to any other screen. When I go to 'My Computer', it does not recognize that there is anything there. It is not the USB port. Everything was fine until the update tried and failed.
    I am not installing iTunes (piece of crap software that it is) on the other computer in my apartment.
    I have exhausted the articles that sort of go with the problems I am having. They all assume a non brick iPod. Mine is a brick and therefore those articles, including the one you linked, are not relevant.
    Not meaning to be rude, but I came into this not caring much for Apple's business model. I've had my iPod for .. a week? Maybe two, and nothing I've seen has convinced me to feel otherwise. Apple's products are supposed to just work. I am not finding that to be the case. Anyone with anything helpful please?

  • Ipod does not show all the songs...

    Hi, I bought a new Ipod G5, I put the songs in the iPod but some artists when you select it, it just go directly to one of their albums without showing any other songs, and when i plug it on the computer, iTunes shows all that all the songs are in there, but the iPod it just not showing them, what's going on?

    Hi i found that if you go into the ipod options in itunes (Ipod must be connected), click on the advanced tabthere is a box you can check that says "keep itunes music organized"
    i checked this the updated my ipod all 60011 song show under artist now without having to put an album in every song-which by the way is waaaaaay annoying when you have over 3000 songs without an album. hope this works for you

  • Iphoto library on external hard drive now does not show all the photos when i access it from macbook

    i backed up iphoto library to an external hard drive.  Deleted photo library on the macbook.  After transferring some new photos to macbook from a camera, when i access the iphoto library on external hard drive only the new photos show up.  Originals are still in files, but don't appear when opening iphoto library on external hard drive.

    Make a temporary, backup copy of your library if you don't already have one (Control-click on the library and select Duplicate from the contextual menu) and  apply the two fixes below in order as needed:
    Fix #1
    Launch iPhoto with the Command+Option keys held down and rebuild the library.
    Select the options identified in the screenshot. 
    Fix #2
    Using iPhoto Library Manager  to Rebuild Your iPhoto Library
    Download iPhoto Library Manager and launch.
    Click on the Add Library button, navigate to your Home/Pictures folder and select your iPhoto Library folder.
    Now that the library is listed in the left hand pane of iPLM, click on your library and go to the File ➙ Rebuild Library menu option
    In the next  window name the new library and select the location you want it to be placed.
    Click on the Create button.
    Note: This creates a new library based on the LIbraryData.xml file in the library and will recover Events, Albums, keywords, titles and comments but not books, calendars or slideshows. The original library will be left untouched for further attempts at fixing the problem or in case the rebuilt library is not satisfactory.

    Hi, M_ghaderi.  
    Thank you for visiting Apple Support Communities.
    If your device is not recognized by iTunes, I would recommend the steps in the article below.  Start with the section labeled Verify that the Apple Mobile Device USB Driver is installed > For Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8 > Update the Apple Mobile Device Driver.

  • A recent Kobo book purchase does not show in the Adobe Digital Editions. What can I do pls?

    There are lots of bugs in ADE2.0 (and 2.0.1).  Try replacing ADE2.0 with the older but more reliable v1.7.2.
    (You can have them both installed at once if you like.)
    Version 1.7.2, it is a little difficult to find, available on Adobe site for Windows and for Mac.
    http://helpx.adobe.com/digital-editions/kb/cant-install-digital-editions.html
    The forum software is sometimes corrupting the link above.  There shouldn't be a blank in 'editio ns.html'.  The following redirects to the same page: http://tinyurl.com/diged172
    Some people have found ADE trying to upgrade automatically. 
    It appears (not 100% sure) that if you install ADE2.0 as a new install (not as an upgrade) that your 1.7.2 will continue to run.
    Probably best to say no if 2.0.x installation asks if you want to migrate your library.

  • Nokia E-5 music player does not show all songs. Th...

    my Nokia E-5 music player does not show all songs. The filemanager does though. have tried every damn thing that i could, from the internet. no solution yet. Nokia wont address it. any solutions? please dont ask me to refersh my music player. nokia now manufactures stupid phones, instead of smartphones..
    can any one help, friends? the last option i have to sell it off and wait for an HTC qwerty mango 7.5 phone

    I perfectly understand that this is frustrating and of course Nokia should adress this.
    I do not work for Nokia so maybe you could contact them. I see you have been to a care centre and reset it, but hopefully by contacting them by email they can log the issue for further work on firmwares?
    I hope this sorts out. Have you btw, tried with some other memory card?
    If it's not too much of a struggle, try backing up everything you have on it and format it, then reboot the phone which will recreate the needed folders and then drag and drop your stuff back to it and check again.
    Hope you get it solved mate!

    hello , why my iPhone'iOs has hotspot befor update to 8.0 , but now it don't be active , by any carrier in our country ...!!! how can i activate it ?

    Hi s.kouris,
    I'm afraid that unless you are able to contact the previous owner and have him wipe the device, or provide you with his Apple ID password so you can delete the iCloud account, you are out of luck.
    With iOS 7, an Activiation Lock was added to deter thieves. This lock prevents anyone but the owner of the device from deleting the iCloud account and restoring the device:
    http://support.apple.com/kb/ht5818
    Unless you are able to reach the original owner and get the device wiped or the iCloud account deleted, you are stuck with a brick.
    Sorry,

  • I changed my browser fill and the update does not show in the preview mode

    I changed my browser fill and the update does not show in the preview mode. I saved and restarted muse but the problem is still there. Any thing else I can do? Could it be something that changed in the file?

    Hello,
    What did you put in the "browser fill" area, an image or a color? WIth gradient or with solid color? Also, does it show fine if you "Preview in Browser"?
    Screenshots showing the Browser fill section (like this: http://screencast.com/t/RHqdVPP4) and the display in Preview mode would also be helpful.
    Cheers

  • I'm trying to purchase Guy Sebastian's (Australia) albums, but I keep getting a link "view in iTunes" which doesn't respond.  How can I purchase music that's a few years old?

    I'm trying to purchase Guy Sebastian's (Australia) albums:
    "Beautiful Life"
    "Closer To The Sun"
    "Just As I Am"
    "Twenty Ten"
    , but I keep getting a link "view in iTunes" which doesn't respond so I can purchase the items thru iTunes.
      How can I purchase music that's a few years old?

    Guy's older albums have been on other countries' Itunes in the past.  I don't know why they come and go.  Guy keeps promising to spend more time overseas, releasing and promoting his music.  I'm sure they'll all become available again then.  You could import CDs, of course, but that becomes expensive.  Online, Sanity and JBHiFi in Australia will mail overseas.

  • Address book of my mac does not show all my contacts in iphone. What do i do??

    Address book of my mac does not show all my contacts in iphone. What do i do??

    iCloud, which replaced MobileMe, requires OS X Lion (10.7.5) or higher.  You will need to upgrade to OS X Lion higher in order to set up iCloud on your Mac.  First check to see if your system meets the system requirements to upgrade.
    Lion system requirements are:
    Mac computer with an Intel Core 2 Duo, Core i3, Core i5, Core i7, or Xeon processor
    2GB of memory
    OS X v10.6.6 or later (v10.6.8 recommended)
    7GB of available space
    Mountain Lion and Mavericks requirements are the same, as listed here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5842.
    If you can run Mavericks, you can download a free upgrade from the Mac App Store.  If your system can only run Lion, you can go here to purchase a redemption code to download it from the Mac App Store.  If you prefer Mountain Lion for software compatibility reasons, you can go here to purchase a redemption code to download it from the Mac App Store.
    After upgrading, you will find iCloud in System Preferences>iCloud on your Mac, and can set it up as explained here: http://www.apple.com/icloud/setup/mac.html.
    Before upgrading, you may want to check the compatibility of your existing applications by checking here: http://roaringapps.com/apps:table.   Also be aware that older PPC programs such as AppleWorks and Office 2004 for Mac will not run on OS X Lion or higher.

  • TS1424 Purchased an album one or more records does not play all the way through. A 13 minute track only plays for the first 3.05 minutes and then stops and the program locks up. Larry

    I just purchased a album and one or more of the tracks does not play all the way through. One track which is a 13 minute track will only play for the first 3 minutes. Larry

    Delete the songs from your iTunes library and redownload them by clicking "Purchased", under Quick Links at the top right of the iTunes store.

    My iPhone was working correctly with FaceTime but now it's not , say (waiting for activiation) what should I do ??  Kindly if you can help!!

    Thanks for your answer...
    My iPhone was connected to a wifi internet when I tried to activate it and when I tried activation by iTunes I was using my laptop with windows 7 which was connected to internet by cable.
    I updated my iPhone to IOS 7 when I was in Egypt and I had no problems with updating it and I can't remember if finding my iPhone option was on or off before updating to IOS 7 and as i understood from searching internet that to use iCloud Finder on web from computer to find my iPhone it should be set up already on my iPhone and I didn't set up iCloud on my iPhone before and my Apple ID wasn't verified for iCloud till today, I verfied it by logging in iCloud from a friend iPad.
    I was considering already the option that my iPhone has been hacked but if this happened so how I would unlock my iPhone and activate it to back to work? who would help me with that? I'm so tired of being without my phone for almost 4 days and I started to consider not having any Apple product anymore... I think that this way to secure the consumer has a lot of conflicts...

  • I recently connected my new ipad to my itunes, but now itunes will not recognise my ipod classic, and 50gig of music has gone. ipad connects ok but no longer ipod which has been there for two years! help!!!

    I recently connected my new ipad to my itunes, but now itunes will not recognise my ipod classic, and 50gig of music has gone. ipad connects ok but no longer ipod which has been there for two years! help!!!

    What happens when the iPod is plugged in?  anything?  any errors?
    Why is 50GB of music gone?  All music should exist on the computer.  Only a fool would rely on a single device which could easily be lost or stolen to store their content on.
