  • My laptop died so I've installed itunes onto another PC and my music is all on an external hardive which is connected to the new PC. How can I sync my ipod with the new itunes and get all the music onto itunes?

    You might consider itunes match for moving CDs you've copied into your itunes library if you dont have a way to use home sharing.
    iTunes match is an optional service offered by apple that costs about $25 a year.  It scans your music library and if it finds music that is already in apple's itunes catalog it'll automatically "unlock"/"store" these in the cloud for you.  Items that it does not find in the catalog it'll upload and store these in the cloud for you and you can download them on your devices.  See http://www.apple.com/itunes/itunes-match/

  • Had to buy a new PC as the hard disk of the old one broke and lost all purchases, but still have them on the iPhone. How can I sync them back to the new PC in iTunes?

    Had to buy a new PC as the hard disk of the old one broke and lost all purchases, but still have them on the iPhone. How can I sync them back to the new PC in iTunes without losing them?

    You should be able to:
    Backup the device to the new installation
    Transfer your purchases into a newly authorized library
    Recover any other media using third party tools as suggested in this post from forum regular Zevoneer
    Restore the device from the backup
    This process should switch the association of the device to the new library, preserving the data and settings in your apps.
    May also be prudent to attempt a backup to iCloud directly from the device before you start... Settings > iCloud > Storage & Backup > iCloud Backup > On. It won't save any media but it would preserve the general account settings and documents in case anything goes wrong while you are trying to extract your other data.
    When you get it all fixed, make a backup!

    iTunes: How to move [or copy] your music [library] to a new computer [or another drive] - http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4527
    Quick answer if you use iTunes' default preferences settings:  Copy the entire iTunes folder (and in doing so all its subfolders and files) intact to the other drive.  Open iTunes and immediately hold down the Option (alt) key (shift on Windows), then guide it to the new location of the library.

    There is no Info tab in Mavericks

    how can i sync my iPod with new iTunes on new computer without losing my old library? There is no backup iTunes/iPod files available.

    If you connect your ipod to your computer then look in the hidden folder labeled "iPod_Control" . (This is on a Mac version, but i think it's the same for Windows) and in "Music" is all your music mixed up in different folders. Just drag the MUSIC folder onto itunes then BAM! It's done ;D

  • How can I sync my iPad with a new laptop (same itunes account) and not lose all my app data, i.e. games data stored on the ipad, not the app itself?

    I want to sync my iPad with a new laptop, so I can get rid of the old computer.  I have already downloaded all the itunes content on the new laptop, but when i go to sync, it tells me that itunes will erase and copy all the apps from the new library.  The 2 computers are on the same account, so is there a way to copy the apps (including app data) onto the new laptop, instead of vice versa?

  • Can't sync a blackberry with the new Macbook

    I'm asking a question for a friend of mine who bought the new MB. She can't get her blackberry to sync using either pocketmac or missing sync. She's been talking to folks at Apple stores and pocketmac, and they've said it's a known hardware issue. So far none of the updates have made a difference. I haven't seen any posts about it here, but am wondering if anyone is aware of a solution.

    see text from e-mail I received after my inquiry.
    We've been hearing from customers like you that they had trouble
    synching their BlackBerry handhelds with new Aluminum MacBook laptops.
    They also reported trouble synching their new BlackBerry Storm.
    The Aluminum MacBook issue appears to be caused by a change
    Apple made to some of the hardware and software for that new model.
    We recommend two items that you should download and install to
    better assist with connection and synchronization:
    1. Apple OS 10.5.6 Update
    2. Blackberry USB Driver Patch/Upgrade (available at the bottom
    of this email).
    Please run Apple's software update from the Apple icon ---
    Software Update. After the Software Update searches for new software.
    Mac OS X 10.5.6 software update should be available in the download
    list.
    Please install this update. It's large and will take several
    minutes to complete. After successfully installing the update, please
    restart your Macintosh and continue with the instructions below...
    We've just released a new, free patch is to support synching the
    new BlackBerry Storm, the BlackBerry Bold 8900 and connections to the
    new
    MacBook Aluminum. This patch supports both Mac OS X 10.4 ("Tiger")
    and Mac OS X 10.5 ("Leopard").
    At the bottom of this email, please find the download link for
    this new update.
    However, please download this USB Driver ONLY if you have one of
    the following items in your operating environment:
    *You have a NEW Aluminum MacBook.
    *You have a BlackBerry Storm 9530
    *You have a BlackBerry Bold 9000
    Please download this update at:

  • How can I sync my iPad3 with my new computer's itunes without deleting all my music?

    When I try to sync my music from my iTunes to my iPad3, itunes says that it will delete all my music, movies, etc currently on my iPad with what I have on my current iTunes. I have music and movies on here from at least one other computer using the same Apple ID. I was able to just highlight and drag all my music to my iPad (which caused a lot of duplicates), but my itunes really just does not want to cooperate with my iPad. Everything I try to do it just wants to either delete what I already have or not work at all.

    You can sync your iOS device with a single iTunes Library. So if you sync your iPad with your present iTunes library all the music and videos would be deleted.
    You can always transfer the media from your old iTunes library to the new one if they are on different commuter using a USB drive and then add those media to the new iTunes library and sync your iPad then.

  • HT1420 Can't sync my ipod with my new computer without it prompting me to erase files on my ipod

    Everytime I try to connect my ipod to my new computer with the usb cable, it says this ipod is already synced to another computer and asks if I want to erase files already on my ipod or play songs authorized for this computer.  I have a lot of music on my ipod that isn't in my itunes library, and I don't want to lose those songs.  I there anyway to unsync my old computer without having to turn it back on?  It crashed on me a while back and can't be used anymore..

    Yes, it will. You need to move your iTunes folder from your old computer to the new computer. You will find it in the /Home/Music/ folder. Copy the entire iTunes folder to an external drive then restore it on the new computer to the same location (overwrite any existing iTunes folder there.) iTunes will now find your old library in the expected location.
    If you migrate your old Home folder to the new computer then this will assure that everything continues working as it was on the old computer.
