ITunes error message (-50) The iPod "[name]" could not be synced...

To clarify the message
-50 The iPod "[name]" could not be synced. An unknown error has occured
This happens to me all the time AFTER I sync all data onto my iPod. Everything syncs on it, and then at the end, it displays the error. Even though all data is on it. This just happened now that I updated iTunes to 8.2 and put the iPhone OS 3.0 (iPod version) on my touch

13019 appears to be related to Voice Memos. Remove (don't delete) all the voice memos then reimport them (they'll be in a "Voice Memos" folder in your "iTunes Music" folder) and you should be in the clear.

  • What does "The iPod "Buttons" could not be synced...." mean?

    Everytime i plug my iPod in to my computer this warning comes up:
    "The iPod “Buttons” could not be synced. The required file is in use."
    (Yes my iPod IS called Buttons, sad I know).
    What does this mean, does it mean that it isn't updating it?
    Does anyone know how I can get rid of this warning?
    Or make sure my iPod 'is not in use' when I try to update/sync it?
    1.9Ghz PowerPC G5   Mac OS X (10.4.9)   30GB iPod video

    Update means going from ver. 1.0 to 1.0.1, which is why my App Store app reflects that I have an update.
    Tried about 15 times after doing various things such as correcting permissions and reinstalling the 10.7.3 combo update.

  • Trying to uninstall and reinstall iTunes on Windows 7, but half way through getting error message saying the older version could not be removed. I have uninstalled everything that goes along with it

    I also get a message saying:

    When I click OK, get a message daying:

    I have no idea what to do!! Any help??

    Download the Windows Installer CleanUp utility from the following page (use one of the links under the thingy on the Major Geeks page):
    http://majorgeeks.com/download.php?det=4459
    To install the utility, doubleclick the msicuu2.exe file you downloaded.
    Now run the utility ("Start > All Programs > Windows Install Clean Up"). In the list of programs that appears in CleanUp, select anyiTunes entries and click "Remove", as per the following screenshot:
    Quit out of CleanUp, restart the PC and try another iTunes install. Does it go through properly this time?

  • Error message says"the document Web could not be saved" help Please

    After spending hours on the final tweeking of my iWeb site I go to publish it and get the message the document could not be saved. Is there anyone out there knows how to get this program to save I have tried everything and nothing. And as luck would have it I didn't keep a back copy of what I put into iWeb. Please help
    thanks Jeff

    Well I encountered the same problem and I had to quit and lose the changes but there is a way to save the information.
    What you should do is first back up the domain file.
    then before you quit and lose the changes, PRINT the pages as a PDF that way you save the information.
    Then I reopened and started to match the pages in iWeb to the PDF's
    Though I found out that when I copied some text into a Podcast page filler text from one of the PDF's it caused the same error.
    So to get that piece to work, I deleted the text box and retyped that part and Presto!

  • I tried to play my iTunes and suddenly get an error message that says "The song (name) could not be used because the original file could not be found.  Would you like to locate it now?"  It happens on all my tunes and each one I select ends up with a "?"

    I tried to play my iTunes and suddenly get an error message that says "The song (name) could not be used because the original file could not be found.  Would you like to locate it now?"  It happens on each tune I select and a "?" appears beside the song.  Does this sound familiar to anyone?

    I was not complete clear.
    Since you never changed the settings in the advanced section of iTunes preferecnes, you have to chech that your music is really in the location setted in the folders reported in the advanced section.  If not you have 2 ways: reset the position of this folders or in the actual disk organisation or in the pointing on the preferences.
    If you press the reset button you just give to itunes its default setting as for the position of the music files: probably this will be a good choice if you have never changed any default preference.
    But before I would check the folders and see if the songs are really there
    In my iTune I have this, and I believe it is the default.

    B-rock, thanks for posting the above.  I actually have the same issue, running Windows XP and I don't have that backup location, \Application Data\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup\.  When I go to Documents and Settings\(username)\ there's a AppData folder followed by:\LocalLow\DataMngr\ .
    I have the latest update, 5.0.1 and I have the iPod Touch 3rd gen.
    I have tried removing itunes and all that is associated with it then reinstalling and keep getting the same message.  I've reset my ipod thinking that would help but still, no backup.
    In iTunes, Edit, Preference, Device there are no backups.
    What am I doing wrong, can you help? 
    Thank you!

  • I can no longer play my music from iTunes on my computer.  i get the error prompt: The song (name) could not be used because the original file could not be found.  What do I do?

    not sure what to add other than to repeat myself.  ive lost ability to play music from my iTunes library on my computer.  Everything is there but i get an error message that says '"The song (name) could not be found.  Would you like to locate it?   Then it gives me the option to locate or cancel.  i can't do that for 3800 songs!!  i have all my music in separate folders by album and all individual selections in an external hard drive.  i can play from there but thats clicking on one number at a time.  i lost my capability in the process of Microsoft correcting a problem with my outlook program.  Why, i haven't a clue.   help!!

    This 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 keep getting the follow error messages when I try to sign into iTunes store or redeem a song code: We could not complete your iTunes store request. The network connection could not be established. There was an error in the iTunes store, please try again

    I keep getting the following error messages on my Mac when I try to redeem a song code: "We could not complete your iTunes store request. The network connection could not be established. There was an error in the iTunes store, please try again later."  and then, "We could not complete your iTunes Store request. An unknown error occurred (-50)."

    Hello, constance132. 
    Thank you for visiting Apple Support Communities. 
    Here are some troubleshooting steps that I could recommend when receiving error -50. 
    "Error -50," "-5000," "8003," "8008," or "-42023"
    These alerts occur due to timeouts or conflicts trying to write a file during download.
    If you encounter this issue while accessing iTunes Store:
    See iTunes 9: "One Moment Please" or "Error (-50)" message when accessing iTunes Store
    If you encounter this issue while while downloading something from the iTunes Store:
    Delete your iTunes Downloads folder, located in:
    Mac OS X:
  ~/Music/iTunes/iTunes Media/Downloads   Note: "iTunes Media" may appear as "iTunes Music. Also, the tilde (~) refers to your Home directory.
    Windows Vista:
  \Users\username\Music\iTunes\iTunes Media\Downloads\
    Windows 7:
  \Users\username\My Music\iTunes\iTunes Media\Downloads\
    Windows XP:
  \Documents and Settings\username\My Documents\My Music\iTunes\iTunes Media\Downloads\
    After locating your iTunes Downloads folder:
    Quit iTunes.
    Delete the Downloads folder on your computer.
    Open iTunes.
    Choose Store > Check for Available Downloads.
    Enter your account name and password.
    If you encounter this issue while while downloading Digital Copies using Windows:
    Use MSCONFIG (directions for Windows XP and Windows Vista/Windows 7) to disable conflicting software.
    If using MSCONFIG steps resolves the issue, you may want to use the System Configuration Utility to turn on the third-party System Services and Startup Items one at a time (restarting your computer after turning on the item or items) to identify which System Service or Startup Item is causing the conflict.
    You can turn all of them back on by selecting the Normal Startup option under the General tab of the System Configuration Utility window, but please note that this may cause the issue to reoccur.
    If you are able to isolate the issue to a particular third-party software, you may wish to contact them to let them know of the conflict.

    Error 1 or -1
    This may indicate a hardware issue with your device. Follow Troubleshooting security software issues, and restore your device on a different known-good computer. If the errors persist on another computer, the device may need service.
    The "device may need service" means a hardware problem. in that case make an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store.

  • My iTunes parent control keeps giving me the same error message. "Parent control preferences could not be unlocked. You may need to reinstall iTunes. "I have uninstalled ant reinstalled iTunes that 4 time now and I still can't get on. Can anyone help?

    My iTunes parent control keeps giving me the same error message. “Parent control preferences could not be unlocked. You may need to reinstall iTunes. “I have uninstalled ant reinstalled iTunes that 4 time now and I still can’t get on. Can anyone help?

    Experimental advice ... but, plausibly, the preference files containing the parental control setting may be damaged. If so, removing the iTunes preference files may help.
    For the basic technique, see the "Remove iTunes preference files" section from the "User-specific troubleshooting" section of the following document:
    iTunes for Windows Vista or Windows 7: Troubleshooting unexpected quits, freezes, or launch issues
    To see those folders, you'll need to first set your PC to view hidden files and folders
    In your Start menu, open Computer.
    In your Organise menu, select Folder Options.
    In the View tab, make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is selected, and Hide extensions for known file types is unchecked.
    Click OK.
    Prior to doing the preference file rebuilds: Best to make a note of any custom preferences you have set up for your iTunes. (Rebuilding pref files returns preferences to their defaults ... so you'll likely have to set some of those custom preferences up again from scratch.) Also make a note of any third-party plugins/add-ons you have installed. You may have to reinstall those after the rebuilds.
    Things to watch out for during the rebuilds
    Rebuilding the preference files in the \Local\ location causes the iTunes license agreement to run. So you'll need to agree to that again.
    Rebuilding the preference files in the \Roaming\ location causes the iTunes Setup Assistant to run. When prompted to do so, do not add files to your iTunes library. (Otherwise you'll end up with a library full of duplicates.)
