    Use one of the several outlined methods in this Apple support document. I personally like the individual playlist set up where you add everything you want to a specific playlist and then set up each iPod to sync that one playlist that contains all the content you would like to be synced to it.

    Is the camera damaged? Could be a hardware problem.
    Try:
    Close the Camera app in the multitasking bar, then try again.
    Restart/Reset/Restore your iPod. In that order.

    I don't want to sync what is on my iPod to my iPad. (I have a 32gb iPod but only 16gb on iPad. The iPod I use mostly for music.) I can't seem to add the films I have downloaded onto iPad to iTunes. If I could do that, I could erase them from iPad to create more storage.
    This is intensely confusing, sorry.

    Question.....
    "I own an iPhone4, an iPod 3rd generation and an iPad 2. I use the same iTunes library but unfortunately synced iPad with a different computer before syncing to my own. Do I risk losing the films/apps I've downloaded onto my iPad if I sync with my iPod?"
    Answer.....
    Yes you will lose the films that you downloaded to the iPad when you sync with your own iTunes unless you transfer the purchases into your own iTunes library. Were these movies that you purchased? If so, you might be able to download them again for free. Do you have multiple computers that you sync from or is this someone else's purchased content?
    You can select whatever you want to sync to all of your devices in iTunes, you do not have to sync the same content to all device.

  • Iphone and ipad are with different carriers, can i use the same apple id on both?

    Hi all,
    I am having some difficulties with setting up my new ipad, i have a different telecommunications carrier for my iphone to my ipad, however my appleID does not allow me to enter another mobile number for my ipad.   When i set up the ipad to my appleID, it automatically registered my iphone # as my contact for messaging.   Is there any way to change the messaging number for the iPad yet still use the same appleID?

    Yes. I use the same Apple ID on four different iDevices. You can sync the contacts with iCloud or with your computer and have them on both devices. You can sync all of the apps as well. If the apps are not in iTunes on your computer - you can download them to the iPad with the same Apple ID. You can also restore the iPad from a backup of the phone to transfer your settings, app data and your contacts.
    iPhone only apps will be half size on the iPad screen but will still work as long - you can enlarge the size of the apps - but they will be pixelated on the screen.

  • Mac and PC  using the same itunes library?

    I have my itunes library located on a NAS hard drive, which I have been accessing from my powerbook. Recently I purchased a Apple TV and was given a Dell desktop. What I would like to know is; is there a way to access one library on both a mac and pc and be able to make changes from either machines? I want the desktop just to run itunes so i don't have to have my laptop open every time i want stream content to the apple tv, but i also want to have be able to view and change my library from my powerbook. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I do exactly this - it's straightforward but the setup will be slow if you have a big library. First point iTunes at the folder on your NAS drive so that anything you rip in Windows will be stored on the NAS drive. Then - this is the slow bit - in iTunes on the Dell, do Add folder to library and browse to the iTunes music folder on the NAS drive and add that. Warning: this takes a long time - I have 7,000-odd tunes and it took - well, at least three hours: I left mine running and went to bed at that point.

  • Use the same itunes library in mac book pro and win xp

    Hi,
    I wish to copy my itunes music, that is on my mac book pro(osx10.5.4), to an external hard drive and play it on my work pc (win xp- ituns 7).of course without loosing my original folder on the mac. can I do it? how? I tried the consolidate option on my mac and the music was copied to the HD but I cant get the win itunes to recognise it even after changing the music folder in it to the external drive.
    thanks

    Windows machines can't access drives formatted in Mac style. This is probably your problem. If the external was formatted to FAT32 then the windows machine could access the drive.

    How do you use the same itunes library for multipul ipods/iphones? >
    First of all, when it comes to music I create playlists. That makes it more easy to handle on different devices.
    When I plug in my iPhone I select the playlists, video or other data I want to have and sync. Same with my iPods. After that I have similar playlists and data on my iPhone and iPods, even calendar and adressbook are updated.
    Hope this helps,

    You created a new AppleID?
    Why not simply update your old AppleID so you have only one iTunes account?

    You might have a little "problem" if your payment were by Credit Card, everytime you try to buy something (I mean, try to download something on your iphone, not from your computer) , your going to need to verify your payment... but if u use iTunes Gift Card, you wont have any problem with that

  • TS2972 I would like to share my iTunes libraries with my Apple TV from both my iMac and Macbook Pro, but I use the same iTunes account on both devices. Is it possible to link my Apple TV to both devices at the same time?

    I recently purchased an Apple TV, and I currently have it linked to my iMac with my iTunes account. I also have a newer MacBook Pro that has some different iTunes media on it than my iMac does, but they share iTunes accounts. Is it possible to link both devices at the same time, have access to media on both computers, and use the same iTunes account on both computers?? It seems Apple TV will only link to one iTunes account per computer, but can access multiple computers if different iTunes accounts are activated on those computers.

    You can share multiple libraries with the Apple TV, they don't even need to use the same iTunes account. Just make sure that you use the same ID for homesharing on all devices.
