    Itunes does not start automatically when I plug in my iPhone.  When I start it manually, it never recognizes the phone although it does ask if I want to download pictures etc.  Many albums have no art work that use to.  iTunes completely unresponsive to the mouse.

    I run itunes on Windows Server 2003 which worked fine for three years. I know it is officially supported on XP only.
    I deinstalled itunes and reinstalled afterwards no change. The windows event log shows some erors
    Faulting application iTunes.exe, version, faulting module shell32.dll, version 6.0.3790.2662, fault address 0x0015af84.
    Any other idea?

    ok, so I am not sure if this is legal or not, but there is a site called oldversion. Go there, and you can get past versions of applications such as aim , and in this case, itunes. just uninstall your other itunes first.
    Sometimes different versions of appications run better on different computers. this new itunes probably just has something the last one didnt that cant run with what you have on your computer

  • ITunes does not start automatically when iPod is connected

    iTunes used to start automatically when I connected iTunes. It no longer does. Can I fix that?

    Connect your iPod and open iTunes. Towards the bottom of the iPod screen, there are four check boxes. The top one says "Open iTunes when iPod is connected." Check that box and click apply. If it is checked, uncheck it and click apply, eject and reconnect your iPod, then recheck it and click apply.

  • ITunes does not recognize ipad when connected

    When I connect my iPad to the computer, iTunes does not recognize the iPad.  I have had the iPad for several months now and have not had the issue.  I checked the cable with the charger and that works fine.  Went through what Apple suggested to no avail.  Any ideas?

    Did you try the steps contained in the attached link?

  • Computer does not start up when connected to My Book 4TB

    When I connect MY Book (4TB) to my computer before turning it on, my computer does not start up.  I only get a black screen.  If I disconnect the My Book and then first start up my computer, I am able to plug in My Book and read all the files, backup, etc.  Why won't the computer start when My Book is connected???

    ??? Wrong Forum? This is for "My Book Live" vs "My Book"... How to tell? Easy, MBL (NAS) does not have USB, MB (USB HD) does...

  • ITunes won't start up when connecting iPhone

    My wife has been having this trouble for awhile, and now I started having the same trouble too. She has an iMac G5 running latest versions of Leopard and iTunes. I have a Power Mac G4 (Gigabit Ethernet model) running the latest version of Tiger and iTunes I also have a USB 2.0 PCI card which has already been tested and is operating properly. Both of our iPhones are the original model running iPhone 2.0, but this problem was happening on her setup before the 2.0/MobileMe fiasco.
    Basically, iTunes won't start on her machine when she sets her iPhone into the iPhone Dock, even though it does show that it is charging. When she clicks iTunes, it syncs new data from her iMac to her iphone, but new data on her iPhone doesn't transfer to her iMac (remember, this is BEFORE the MobileMe/2.0 update). I've tried different sync cables, plugging it in to different USB ports, and always it's the same- it may work properly when I unplug the cable and plug it back in again, but after I remove the iPhone from its dock and set it back in, it malfunctions the same as I just described. It initiates a sync if iTunes is running, but not if iTunes is shut down. The crazy thing is, her syncing was working perfectly both ways until about two months before the MobileMe/2.0 switch, so I know it has nothing to do with that.
    Today, my Power Mac and iPhone started displaying the same symptoms, but with a twist- I put my iPhone into its cradle, and nothing- no charging screen and tone, no syncing startup, nothing. I turn iTunes off, pull the iPhone out of the cradle, and set it back in again- nothing. iTunes won't even start up; and when I start it up myself, it still doesn't recognize the iPhone is there. I plug the iPhone into a wall charger using the same cable I sync with, and it starts charging with no problems. I plug my iPhone cradle back into my external USB hub, connected to one of the USB 1.1 ports, and the syncing/charging works flawlessly. The weird thing is, my 4th Generation iPod Photo is on a different dock with a different cable, plugged into the same USB 2.0 card, and iTunes starts and syncs with no problems with that iPod every time.
    I've taken my wife's iMac, her iPhone, and her iPhone dock and cable in to the Apple Store's Genius Bar, but they weren't able to figure out the problem. They tried to redirect the syncing issues by trying to demonstrate iPhone 2.0's wireless push/pull capabilities, but they couldn't get that to work properly, even though all the settings on the imac and the iPhone were correct. All they could suggest was that I must have had a "bad upgrade" when I upgraded to Leopard (6 months ago?!?), and that I should try an "Archive and Install" of Leopard again to see if that sorts out the issue- something I do not really have the time to do (and my wife can't really be without her Mac for that long since she uses it for work).
    I see a lot of similar issues on Apple's iPhone support pages with iTunes not recognizing iPhones when they're plugged in, or not charging when plugged in, etc. I've spent a lot of money on our Macs and our iPhones based on the idea (from Apple's own marketing) that Apple's products "just work". And darn it, with all the money I've invested into these products I just want them to WORK- EVERY TIME, without fail! These are the kind of problems I left behind in the Windows world, and I don't want their ugly heads to surface here too.

    Hi yesy
    If you are sure you disabled your AV/antispy and you get the flash of a licence it sounds like you may have a malware infection. Look out for posts by b noir and get hold of ewido - its a free AV programme - google and you should find.
    BTW, you may be in Florida and I'm in the UK, but don't shout - you're just next door in cyberspace!:) I understand your frustration coz I've been in your place. There are some really helpful folks on this forum - seek, and you shall find!

  • ITunes does not start up when iPod attached

    This is a new problem. Don't know why. I have to start iTunes manually when I plug in the iPod. It then sees the ipod but does a very quick update. I don't know why itunes won't start up by itself anymore. Any yes, the box telling it to do so is still checked.
    Any thoughts?

    Try giving your iPod a reset. Hold in the menu button and center button at the same time until the Apple logo appears.

  • ITunes does not start up when plugging in iPhone?

    I wonder how to get iTunes start up automatically when I plug my iPhone in to my MacBook. Right now, when I plug in my iPhone the iPhoto starts up instead. This is strange because I thought that iTunes should be the one starting up. Anyone knows how to fix this.

    I found this thread trying to figure out the opposite: disable iTunes from starting up every time I plugged in my iPhone. The UI flow doesn't make it obvious either way.
    If auto sync is disabled globally in itunes/settings/devices, the sync option in the summary pane/advanced section is unchecked and grayed out.
    So by checking the global disable option, iTunes will always automatcially start up (by not sync) when I plug in my iPhone regardless.
    By unchecking to "enable" automatic syncing (double negative UI options FTL), that enables the summary pane/advanced section where you can now uncheck the automatic sync option for the device, which will then also keep iTunes from popping up.

  • After install of the last version, iTunes does not start anymore ...

    Symptom : described in the title.
    Everything has been working for years, and after upgrade, just nothing happens.
    I can see the iTunes + iTunes helper + iPod services processes in Task Manager, but no window appears.
    Even after killing all that & start again, nothing happens.
    I just bought a second iPod and I need iTunes to get working!
    Prompt help would be appreciated.

    I just realised you are using XP here is a fuller method for Troubleshooting silent launch failure in Windows XP
    Before checking if iTunes works, restart your PC or close the iTunes.exe process with task manager if it is running.
    A couple of simple things to try:
    Stop the bonjour service, this FAQ has instructions:
    But usually it is due to a problem with cryptographic services.
    Check to see if you have your smart card service and that it is not set to disabled. For some reason iTunes needs it.
    you should find the smart card service in the list. Report back with your findings.
    Malware can interfere with cryptographic services and also prevent a resolution so it is important to check that your system is clean before proceeding: Run a virus and spyware scan with up to date definitions.
    Then work through *Method 4* in the following link:
    You should be able to copy and paste the individual lines to save on typing.
    Make a careful note of any error messages you get, they are important for diagnosis. Report back any error messages especially the names of any dlls mentioned.
    If there are no errors try starting iTunes.

  • Itunes does not start playing when I insert a cd

    iMac won't let me sellect iTunes in the CDs & DVDs preferences section, under the "when you insert a music CD" - open iTunes is grayed out.

    Hello, try this...
    First, Safe Boot , (holding Shift key down at bootup), use Disk Utility from there to Repair Permissions, test if things work OK in Safe Mode.
    Then move these files to the Desktop for now...
    Reboot & test.
    PS. Safe boot may stay on the gray radian for a long time, let it go, it's trying to repair the Hard Drive.

  • After installation of 10.2.2 iTunes does not start up anymore

    I updated my system to 10.2.2. today. Now itunes does not start anymore. I receive an Error Message saying "iTunes was was not installed correctly. Please reinstall iTunes Error 7 (Windows Error 998))" I reinstalled iTunes - same effect. Even a complete reinstallation of the entire .NET Framework 2, 3.5 and 4 did not help. Could anyone help please. Honestly spoken I am quite upset since I do not have access to my library anymore.....

    If it isn't the .NET thing, and you aren't getting an additional message mentioning a specific filename, then it's probably damage to one of the software components installed with iTunes, Holger.
    Usually it's a damaged Apple Application Support, but I've seen it produced by a damaged QuickTime in some contexts too. So it might be best to do a complete reinstall of iTunes as per the instructions in the following documents.
    If you've got a Windows XP system, see:
    Removing and Reinstalling iTunes, QuickTime, and other software components for Windows XP
    If you've got a Windows Vista or 7 system, see:
    Removing and reinstalling iTunes, QuickTime, and other software components for Windows Vista or Windows 7
    Does that fix the error for you?
