my computer crashed and I no longer have the itunes library. i get an error msg that my iphone 3g is synced to another library - how can I get the info from the phone to the itunes library without losing everything? How do I delete old audiobooks from my iphone?

You can transfer itunes purchases:  File>Devices>Transfer Purchases
The iphone is not a storage/backup device.  The sync is one way - computer to iphone.  The exception is itunes purchases.
It has always been very basic to always maintain a backup copy of your computer.  Use your backup copy to put everything back.

  • HELP! My computer crashed and I no longer have anything on iTunes

    Can I transfer my music from my ipod to my computer??? I'm scared to plug my iPod into my computer because I'm afraid it will erase everything. I don't have any hard copies of my music because my car was broken into last month and they took all my CDs. Can someone help me please!

    You can't sync or drag your music back directly from an iPod to iTunes, the transfer of music is designed by default to be one way from iTunes to iPod. However there is a manual method of accessing the iPod's hard drive and copying songs but not playlists back to iTunes on Windows posted in this thread: MacMuse - iPod to iTunes
    If you prefer something more automated then there are a number of third party utilities that you can use to retrieve the music files and playlists from your iPod, this is just a selection. Have a look at the web pages and documentation for these, they are generally quite straightforward.
    iPod Access Mac and Windows Versions
    YamiPod Mac and Windows Versions
    PodUtil Mac and Windows Versions
    iPodCopy Mac and Windows Versions
    PodPlayer Windows Only
    iGadget Windows Only
    If you haven't already done so, change the update setting for your iPod to manual. If you are using the iPod in manual update mode, your iPod is safe from being accidentally erased when you connect to an empty iTunes after reinstalling your operating system. However if your iPod is set to automatically update you will get a message that your iPod is linked to a different library and asking if you want to link to this one and replace all your songs etc, press *No*. Pressing "Yes" will irretrievably remove all songs from your iPod. Your iPod should appear in the iTunes source list from where you can change the update setting to manual.
    You can also use a keyboard command to prevent your iPod auto-syncing with iTunes. While connecting the iPod to the computer on Windows hold down the Shift + Ctrl keys (on a Mac hold down the Option and Command (⌥ and ⌘) keys). This will stop the iPod from auto-syncing with iTunes and the iPod will appear in the source list. Wait until you are sure the iPod has mounted, and that it will not auto sync and then you can let the keys go. This may take between 20 to 30 seconds depending on your computer. Then go to Preferences>iPod and check the "Manually manage songs and playlists" box: Managing Your Songs Manually
    Whichever of these retrieval methods you choose, keep your iPod in manual mode until you have reloaded your iTunes and you are happy with your playlists etc then it will be safe to return it auto-sync again.

  • How can I connect my imessaging from my phone with the imessaging on my macbook?

    I want my imessaging from my phone to correlate to my computer.

    Associate your mobile number with your Apple ID, if you haven't already done so.
    Sign out of iMessage on the Mac:
              Messages ▹ Preferences ▹ Accounts ▹ Sign out
    and on the iPhone:
              Settings ▹ Messages ▹ Send & Receive ▹ Apple ID ▹ Sign out
    Then, on the phone, tap
              Use Your Apple ID for iMessage
    Sign back into iMessage on both devices and test.

  • My iphone recently crashed and i had music i had purchased from itunes that i hadnt yet synced to my puter, how can i get it back without having to buy it again???

    My iphone has recently crashed & i had music from itunes i had not yet synced to my computer how do i get it back without having to buy it again, im in Australia so do not yet have icloud

    Unfortunately you can't.  You could try contacting Apple and asking nicely, but they're under no obligation to help you.  If you can wait until fall*, when iCloud is officially launched alongside iOS 5, you can probably download them all again then.
    The small print at the bottom of http://www.apple.com/au/icloud/ says "some music features of iCloud are available in beta now in the U.S. only"
    I can't find anything which guarantees it will work outside the US after the beta, but it probably will.  iTunes Match is definitely US only, for a couple of years at least until the legal stuff is dealt with.

  • I have windows 8, 64 bit.  I am trying to install ITunes 64 bit installer, but keep getting an error message that says a .DLL file is missing.  How can I fix this?

    After installing, whenever i try to open the application, it keeps popping up that some or the other .dll file is missing.
    When I install that particular .dll file and then again try to re open, it says that someother file is missing. It keeps
    coming all the time.

    For general advice see Troubleshooting issues with iTunes for Windows updates.
    The steps in the second box are a guide to removing everything related to iTunes and then rebuilding it which is often a good starting point unless the symptoms indicate a more specific approach. Review the other boxes and the list of support documents further down page in case one of them applies.
    Your library should be unaffected by these steps but there is backup and recovery advice elsewhere in the user tip.

  • I still have my iPod Nano 3rd generation, but my old computer crashed and I did not have itunes backed up, so I lost my library. Is there a way to get the songs from my old ipod to new computer library and then on to the new ipod?

    Save all the photos from your Droid into a folder on your computer.
    Connect your device to your computer. On iTunes left Pane, select iPhone under 'Devices'; then on the right Pane, select PHOTO tab.  Make sure Sync Photo box is checked, and "from" box selected the folder that has Droid's photos.  Then click the SYNC or APPLY button on the lower right window.

  • I have a new computer. How can I save my music from my IPod to the new computer since it isn't in my Library. I don't want to sync and lose music.

    Then you will need to search for a 3rd party program to transfer content
    Pasted from another thread
    https://discussions.apple.com/thread/2234756?start=0&tstart=0
    One of the most recommended is Yamipod. This is a free program that transfers music from iPod back to the computer. However, it does not transfer playcounts/ratings etc.
    Other free programs are Pod Player, SharePod and Floola and iDump andiPodRobot.
    If you want to recover just the structure of playlists from the iPod (and not the actual song files themselves), there's iRepo for Windows. which I understand has this feature along with all the standard features for these programs.
    iPodRip also has the feature enabling you to reconstruct playlists.
    There is also CopyTrans. This does preserve ratings/playcounts etc if those are important to you but this program is not free. It also supports video transfer.
    More information is contained here.

  • I wiped my ipod classic and then my computer crashed, so i no longer have the songs i purchsed from itunes on my ipod or computer! I have a new computer now with itunes installed, can I get the songs purchased previously from itunes somehow?

    I wiped my ipod classic and then my computer crashed, so i no longer have the songs i purchsed from itunes on my ipod or computer! I have a new computer now with itunes installed, can I get the songs purchased previously from itunes somehow?

    Yes, you can!(:
    STEP 1: Open iTunes
    STEP 2: Navigate to the "iTunes Store". It can be found under the "STORE" tab.
    STEP 3: On the right side of the store there should be a "Quick Links" Section. Click on the "Purchased" link.
    STEP 4: Navigate to the "Music" tab and click on "All Songs". Then at the bottom of the screen there will be a button that says "Download All". Click the button and your songs will be begin downloading!
    NOTE: This will only work with songs that you bought from the iTunes store, if you imported them from a CD, you will have to do it again.
    NOTE: You can also do this with Apps, Movies, TV Shows, and Books.
    NOTE: You may have to sign in with your Apple ID to verify the download.
    Hope this helped! Enjoy your music!(:

  • I have a library set up for my i-pop touch, how can my wife set up her i-phone on the same pc?

    I have a library set up for my i-pod touch, how can my wife set up her i-phone on the same PC but with a seperate library location?

    You can sync multiple iPods and iOS devices with the same iTunes library on one computer. Each device has its own sync preferences with iTunes and iTunes creates and updates a separate backup for each device.
    Under the same computer login account, you can have separate iTunes libraries which will require manually having to log in and out of each one with iTunes which isn't necessary.
    If you want separate iTunes libraries for you and your wife, probably best to create a separate computer login account for your wife where her iTunes library is completely seperate along with the rest of her data on the computer.

  • I upgraded to Mavericks from 10.6.8 and I no longer have any of my mail folders in macmail. If I look up an email via spotlight, I can find it, so it's in there. How do I restore my folders?

    I upgraded to Mavericks from 10.6.8 and I no longer have any of my mail folders in macmail. If I look up an email via spotlight, I can find it, so it's in there. How do I restore my folders?

    As an update: I was able to find my archived boxes and emails on my hard drive by doing this:
    Open a Finder window.
    Select Go | Go to Folder… from the menu.
    Type "~/Library/Mail/V2".
    Once I was able to get my macmail working properly, most of my mailboxes appeared, however not all and only a few recent emails are in a few of the boxes.
    I really need to move the emails from the archive back into my macmail. When I try to import using the mbox method, it doesn't recognize the .mbox even though they are .mbox. Other than re-emailing each individually to myself, I don't know what to do. Does anyone out there have any suggestions as to some easier solution?
