Ipod dock sync problems into G5 / works with Cinema Display

after buying a new printer i had to reshuffle my usb and firewire arrangements, so i moved the ipod photo dock to the usb port on the back of my G5...before it was going into the back of my apple cinema display's usb port.
now, i get the (-36) message whenever i try and transfer songs with the ipod in the dock when connected into the back of the G5. if i bypass the dock and use the usb cable directly into the ipod it works fine, and everything (dock included) still works fine if it's plugged into one of the apple cinema display usb inputs. i just can't use the dock anymore if it's plugged directly into the G5. i do have Isight hooked up to firewire and some of the other ports used, but Isight didn't interfere with anything before this.
anyone have any clue what's going on?

I have been trying (unsuccessfully) to get my iPod to sync. Tried everything that normally cures all problems and quite a few new things. No joy.
Anyway, every so often, due to having to disconnect without ejecting or force quitting applications, my iPod becomes unrecognisable.
What works for me is to boot the computer using my Installation Disk. As soon as you're past the welcome page you will have access to Disk Utility. It always seems to be able to see and repair the iPod. I then cancel the "Installation" and reboot from the System on my Hard Disk.

  • VTBook Card claiming to drive 4 displays! Will it work with Cinema display?

    Will the VTBook solve this problem?
    I am trying to find a solution to using my tablet laptop (Fujitsu T4020 Lifebook) with a 23" Cinema display.
    Here is the problem:
    1. Lifebook as a VGA out only.
    2. Lifebook's port replicator (docking station) has a DVI port (fits 23").
    3. Does not work!
    As I understand it, I need a converter?
    That is supposedly either:
    1. http://www.gefen.com/kvm/product.jsp?prod_id=1310
    at a very steep price, OR
    2. http://www.villagetronic.com/vtbook/index.html
    the VTBook, also at $250+.
    I really thought the port replicator with the DVI out will sort the problem out?
    Help please!

    Hi Roger,
    I admit that I don't know much about your tablet laptop model, but I suspect the inbuilt graphics card is not up to running an extra 23" display (hence the port replicator not working for this display).
    I think your best hope of getting it to work off this tablet laptop is via the Gefen adaptor. See if you can get a returns deal on the adaptor if it doesn't work for you.

  • Any ideas why my ipod nano 6th gen is not working with Sony SRSGU10IP docking station pls

    any ideas why my ipod nano 6th gen is not working with Sony SRSGU10IP docking station please ? classic working fine, so not the fault of the station itself ? it's been bought as a present for my father & he's confused !

    Check the headphone jack with a flashlight and clean it if necessary. The jack on a new Nano is very tight, be sure you push the headset jack all the way in, the plastic on the headset jack should be flush with the body of the Nano.

  • Active Sync certificates no longer work with iOs 4.3

    Existing Active Sync certificates no longer work with iOs 4.3. Can I fix this?

    My results differ from yours.
    With iOS 4.0x, 4.1 and 4.2x my smart playlists with live updating were broken. It would start with track 1 of 5, then 2 of 4, then 3 of 3, 4 of 2, then would generally crash the iPod app. If I left the playlist and re-entered it would have removed the entries already played, but I would find that some of the entries that should have played had actually been skipped in m playlist.
    With iOS 4.3, my playlists are properly working for me again. Now they play 1 of 5, 2 of 5, 3 of 5, ... If I return to the playlist while it is playing, I see that the entries that have already played are removed, and if I leave the playlist to return later, it starts over a 1 of 2, 2 of 2...
    I have posted another thread of how I have my playlists defined, so perhaps that would help you. I do recall that there were some conditions that used to cause problems if used in a smart playlist.

  • Update 10.2.2 older ipod/iphone sync cables no longer work.

    Update 10.2.2. I updated to 10.2.2 and my older ipod/iphone sync cables no longer work. Im talking about the cables with the longer connector and the connector locks not the new style that is a short plug with no lock. Anyone else having this issue?
    Tried normal steps, reinstall restart etc. No change. I'm at work and the cable works fine on something in the update must have changed.

    On your computer go to the control panel (hover in the lower right corner) then programs, add/remove programs
    Uninstall iTunes, Apple Mobile Device Service, Apple Application Support then go to apple.com and redownload and reinstall iTunes and try again.
    You won't lose any content, you're not deleting that, just the programs that access them.
    What is thought to happen is that sometimes a new version of itunes doesn't update the drivers in those other two programs. The only way to update the drivers is to force it by uninstalling the programs which allows itunes to write the correct ones.
    My iPad and iPod did exactly the same thing and this is how I fixed it.

    Hello, Pete. 
    Here is an article I would recommend going through when an iPod is not recognized by iTunes or the computer.
    iPod not recognized in My Computer and in iTunes for Windows
    Usually the resolution is updating the Apple Mobile Device Driver.  See 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.

  • I have an ipod that is synced with an old PC, and now I have a Mac and I want the ipod to sync the photos on it with the Itunes on my Mac, but it says it was synced with another ipod.  How can I accomplish this?

    I have an ipod that is synced with an old PC, and now I have a Mac and I want the ipod to sync the photos on it with the Itunes on my Mac, but it says it was synced with another ipod.  How can I accomplish this?

    Is it the same user/iTunes account or...?
    Syncing to a new computer should give you the opportunity to replace the exisiting contents with the new.

  • Imac [plus 2nd display - can you work with one display rotated 90 degrees?

    I'm thinking of getting a Dell Ultrasharp 24" monitor to use as a 2nd screen from my iMac 20". The Dell screen seems to rotate 90 degrees so you can view it landscape or portrait. If you're working with 2 displays functioning as one giant desktop, can you rotate the 2nd display 90 degrees, and still use the 2 monitors as a giant desktop?
    Any advice much appreciated - thank you!

    Leopard has a built-in feature for rotating the display. It's in System Preferences Displays pane. You can select to rotate the image 90, 180, or 270 degrees. It even works for my massive 21-inch CRT that I use with my iMac as the extended desktop, although it would be very difficult to physically use that monitor in portrait orientation.
    So what you are describing should work.

  • Vga to dvi with cinema displays?

    are the aluminum apple cinema display DVI-I or DVI-D? we have some extras and some people with vga computers (analog out) want to use the monitors. will a vga to dvi-i adapter work with these displays? or are they dvi-d (digital signal only)?

    DVI-D digital only. A cheap VGA to DVI adapter won't work. You would need an expensive VGA to DVI converter, such as

  • IPod touch sync problem with iCal

    My iPod touch (3th gen) doesn't sync any new appointment with iCal anymore (and vice versa). He only sync the older appointments, even when replacing all data from iCal to the iPod. I think the problem started since installing OS X Lion. I do not work with MobileMe, but directly via iTunes. How can I solve this problem?

    Did you try to click either "all" or "selected"? If you click "selected" you need also to click on the different calenders that you set up. For example, if you have djm027 calender (that is calender for yourself), another calender for sister, another calender for your brother and so forth. You need to click them all if you want to be seem on your iPod Touch. And if you only want yours then you just click djm027. I am not sure if this help. This is how I fix the problem myself.

  • Need help with ipod itunes syncing problem just occured

    i restored my computer to factory settings and when i did that i lost my itunes and when i reinstalled it and tried to sync my ipod to the new installation of itunes it said that my ipod is synced with another itunes and that to sync it wiht this itunes it would delete and replace all data on my ipod with data from my itunes which is nuthing please help i dont wanna lose all my songs and apps an all that

    You should have created a backup of your Itunes library before your computer restore to factory setting so that you can copy them to your new iTunes.
    Sync is only oneway, from PC to your device. Unless you have the music on your PC, iTunes is going to wipe out what you have on your device if you are syncing to a new library.
    You can only transfer Purchased music over to Itunes on your PC.
    iTunes Store: Transferring purchases from your iOS device or iPod to a computer
    As for you own music, you may have to use a third party software to copy over. A good Free one is called Sharepod which you can download from Download.com here:

  • IPod Classic Sync Problem - iTunes 11

    I was having issues with syncing my iPod today. Multiple problems led to me having to uninstall iTunes on my PC and I also had to restore the iPod a couple of times. Once all was said and done, I could not sync my music to the iPod. It usually automatically synced when plugged in, but since the restore and reinstall, nothing happened. Even clicking sync with my iPod pllugged in didn't work.
    SOLUTION (with the help of Apple tech support):
    1) Connect iPod to computer (make sure iTunes is running).
    2) Click on iPod name (mine is called Owner's iPod).
    3) At the top of the screen, next to "Summary", click on "Music".
    4) To the left of "Sync Music" there is a little box. There should be a check in it. If not, put a check there.
    5) The number of songs ready to be synced should appear.
    6) In the lower right hand corner, click on "Apply".
    I saw in another forum information that I needed to find the box to select to sync songs, but the information was a few years old and I couldn't find it according to the directions. This should work for those with ver. 11.
    If anyone else has sync problems and you HAVE A SOLUTION please share it here. Thanks!

    Hi black3793,
    Welcome to the Apple Support Communities!
    I know it can be both frustrating and concerning when iTunes becomes unresponsive when you connect your iPod. In your situation I would start by isolating iTunes by uninstalling it and all of its components in the correct order and installing fresh. Please follow the steps in the attached article for removing iTunes and its components. 
    Removing and reinstalling iTunes and other software components for Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8
    Remove iTunes and related components from the Control Panel
    Use the Control Panel to uninstall iTunes and related software components in the following order and then restart your computer:
    Apple Software Update
    Apple Mobile Device Support
    Apple Application Support (iTunes 9 or later)
    Important: Uninstalling these components in a different order, or only uninstalling some of these components may have unintended affects.
    Have a great day,

  • New Ipod Classic syncing problems, restoring problems

    Just got my 80gb Ipod Classic yesterday, and have had syncing problems, and now Itunes does not recognize it at all.
    I'm using the latest version of Itunes (
    Ipod Firmware 1.1.2 (or whatever the newest is)
    Windows XP Pro
    I'm a long-time user of a 5g 30gb Ipod and never have had issues like this. I am syncing to the same Itunes library as my old Ipod. Connecting my new Ipod Classic, I updated the firmware, and tried to sync. Halfway through the sync, I got an error. I disconnected the ipod and reset it. I tried syncing again, and again it would hang at some point, had to disconnect, and then it said my ipod had no music, but with 60gb free only. So obviously a database problem on the ipod and some mp3 files that my new ipod classic didn't like (though my old 5g ipod has no problem with this library).
    Next, I connected and did a Restore.
    I removed the culprit mp3 files from Itunes Library, attempted to sync again. Again, it would freeze at some point during sync. Had to disconnect Ipod while Itunes was frozen. Again, Ipod says has no music but with only about 60gb free.
    So Ipod is corrupted again. The problem is when I connect it to my PC, Itunes no longer recognizes it, so I can't do a Restore. What do I do?

    Just wanted to post my results, for future users benefit:
    Putting my Ipod into Disk Mode, connected to computer, Itunes recognized it, performed a Restore.
    Still had syncing/freezing issues.
    Decided that my Itunes library database was corrupted. Went into My Documents > My Music, and deleted the Itunes Folder, except for the containing Artwork Folder.
    Have been rebuilding my Library from scratch since, and have had no syncing problems yet again.
    Only problem is that in the outermost Podcast menu, it is always empty. The only conveninent way to access my Podcasts is to make a playlist and put them all in it.

  • Universal Dock's remote doesn't work with iPhone Photos

    Has anyone tried Universal Dock's remote with iPhone Photos? I can't get it to work.
    The remote does work with iPhone music and video though.

    i just bought this dock as a car dock. I have it hooked up to power 12v and output to 1/8 into head unit. Now, I have to be in iTunes music to get it to work and it only allows volume, playing of files in a playlist and to next song. Are any of you guys having issues with VERY limited use of the remote and lack of really a benefit from using a remote because you have to touch it anyways to change through songs or video??? Are you guys wondering why you even bought it if the remote is not supported as a functional addition?
