My itunes account was set up under an email account that has been deleted. I started a new itunes account but have the same device as with the old account. How do i keep my music thats on my ipod touch from being deleted when i sync it to my new account?

My itunes account was set up under an email account that has been deleted. I started a new i tunes account but have the same device as with the old account. How do i keep my music thats on my ipod touch from being deleted whin i sync it to itunes after purchasing new music?

I have the same problem (deleted email account). I think I mistakenly set up an account when I was buying an Apple product online, not realizing that it would be the same ID as my iTunes.
What is the way to actually contact Apple?
I have been clicking around in circles for hours! Will I have to pay them to resolve this? I don't have any products still have applecare . . .

  • How do I reformat an IPod Touch for Windows that has been formatted for a Mac?  All instructions I have been able to find use ITunes or Device Manager to reformat.  My IPod is not being recognized by ITunes or in Device Manager.

    I have an IPod Touch that has been formatted for a Mac.  All instructions I have been able to find use ITunes or Device Manager to reformat the device for Windows.  This cannot be done if Windows doesn't recognize the device.  Is there another way to set the device back to the factory settings directly on the device without using ITunes?

    Ipod touch is not formatted one way or the other at all.
    Just sync it to the new computer using itunes.

    Without an iPhone or iPod Touch to restore the backup to, you cannot access the camera roll photos stored in the iCloud backup.  Signing into the account on your computer and enabling photo stream will only allow you to access photo stream photos from the last 30 days, and any shared stream you were subscribed to.
    You can redownload purchased music in iTunes on your computer as explained here: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht2519.

    can you download the same film twice with the same itunes account

    It depends upon which region you are in and the current policy of the copyright holder. Sometimes individual items are exemept even though repeat downloads are generally supported. Any purchased item could be removed from the store in future so you should really maintain your own backup.

  • My wife and I have 2 new iPhones and also have a mac book pro and an iMac. How can we share apps, music and contacts between all these?

    My wife and I have 2 new iPhones and also have a mac book pro and an iMac. How can we share apps, music and contacts between all these?

    Use the same Apple ID and password for purchasing in all these devices.

  • I mistakenly registered my wife's and my iPhone under the same account on the same computer, albeit with different passwords. How do I separate these phones?

    This mistake has confused the account somehow and actions done on one phone often have an effect on the other. I took these phones back to the dealer where they were purchased a few months ago, and they were able to correct some of the issues, but we still have problems. The latest is that my wife password would not work on her Apple ID account so she changed it successfully, but a few days later when I tried to update an app on my phone, and in trying to sign in to iTunes, it showed her name instead of mine, and of course, would not accept my password.
    When we first bought these phones about a year ago, I registered them both inder the name "R & P's iPhone" and tried to assign different passwords for the 2 phones, but as I recall, this was not successful. We let it go at that, inasmuch as we had not explored the phone's features much beyond making simple phone calls. But as time went on, and we began installing apps and using other features, this conflict has showed up more and more often. Now I am told by the dealer that one cannot register 2 phones on the same computer, which sounds odd to me, but whatever, we are prepared to start over & register the phones on different computers, under different names.
    I have an iTunes account, but is this where you make these changes? All I see on iTunes is related to music & movies.
    Thanks kindly for any advice.
    R & P

    I access a personal iPhone and iPad, and a business iPhone with the same Apple ID.
    The iPhone's passcode lock feature is completely separate from another iPhone or iOS device.
    All apps, all paid and free apps include DRM protection which is tied to the Apple ID that was used to download the apps. If some apps were downloaded with one Apple ID and then a new Apple ID is created, in order to download an app update that was installed with the original Apple ID requires using that Apple ID and password.

  • How do I get my music back on my Ipod touch 4th gen?

    I was following the steps on how to sync my musc on to my Ipod touch 4th gen and when i was doing that i lost everything single song i ever had on my ipod (songs i bought and songs i downloaded) except for like 2 songs. How do i get all my songs back on there?

    You can redownload most iTunes purchases by:        
      Downloading past purchases from the App Store, iBookstore, and iTunes Store
    For how to sync:
    iTunes: Syncing media content to iOS devices and iPod       
    Note that you can only sync with one computer/iTunes library. If you switch libraries/computers, the synced media on the iPod gets deleted.

  • When I am attempting to reset my password that has been forgotten through a computer restore, iTunes gives me a prompt to turn off Find my iPad in iCloud settings. This is not possible, as my iPad mini is locked and settings are unaccessible.

    When attempting to reset my iPad mini password that has been forgotten, I am unable to restore my device due to an error message stating that I "Need to turn off Find My iPad in iCloud settings on my iPad mini". This is not possible, as I have forgotten the password and can not open the device.

  • How do I put a photo on to my iPod Touch from iPhoto

    On my Mac Mini, running SL OSX 10.6.8, is iPhoto '09 v. 8.1.2. and iTunes v. 11.0.2. I've got an old iPod Touch 16GB running v. 2.2.1.
    I want to move a photo from iPhoto onto my iPod Touch, which used to be simple. However, now when I open iTunes, the photo option is no longer there, so how do I move a photo on to my iPod now?
    So I need to go back to an older version of iTunes?

    When you plug in the iPod open up Iphoto on your Mac and then in the left hand column under devices you should see your iPod. Click on this then you will see all the photos on your iPod. Click on the photos you want to transfer and Voila there you go.
    Besides,there are some articles about iPod Photo Transfer, which can help you transfer pictures from iPhone.
    For Mac:How to transfer photo/picture from iPod to Mac
    For PC: How to transfer or copy photos from iPod to PC
    No need for any other progs Hope this helps

  • Lost all my music on my iPod touch. Now I can't reload it from my computer because it states that it is in the cloud. How do I get my music back on my iPod touch so I can listen when I'm out of wifi range.

    I was trying to fix the "ghost" songs on my ipod touch 4th generation today. Somehow I ended up deleting all my songs from the touch. Now when I try to get them back from my computer it states that they have to be downloaded from the icloud first. Don't know how to do this or why I can't just drag and drop the music from the computer back onto my ipod touch.

    Follow the instructions here:

    Are you confirming your POP account is selected as the sending email account before the message is sent?
    And regardless if the email is a new email or is replying to or forwarding an email received by the POP account and cofirming the POP acconut is selected as the sending email account, the message is sent by the Gmail account?
    All message sent by the POP account are sent by the Gmail account?
    If so, delete the Gmail account from your iPad and test if a message sent with your POP account which will be the only email account available with the iPad's Mail app is recieved from your POP account/address.
    If not, something else is wrong or on play that has nothing to do with the iPad.

  • How do I unlock iphone 5 that has been completely disabled, tried going to itunes?

    How do I unlock iphone 5 that is completely disabled?  It says to go to itunes, when going to itunes it says I need to have phone unlocked!  Thanks!

    If you mean your passcode lock:
    If You Are Locked Out Or Have Forgotten Your Passcode or Just Need to Restore Your Device
      1. iTunes 10 for Mac- Update and restore software on iPod, iPhone, or iPad
      2. iPhone, iPad, iPod touch: Wrong passcode results in red disabled screen
      3. iOS- Understanding passcodes
         If you have forgotten your Restrictions code, then follow the instructions
         below but DO NOT restore any previous backup. If you do then you will
         simply be restoring the old Restrictions code you have forgotten. This
         same warning applies if you need to restore a clean system.
    A Complete Guide to Restore or Recover Your iDevice (if You Forget Your Passcode)
    If you need to restore your device or ff you cannot remember the passcode, then you will need to restore your device using the computer with which you last synced it. This allows you to reset your passcode and re-sync the data from the device (or restore from a backup). If you restore on a different computer that was never synced with the device, you will be able to unlock the device for use and remove the passcode, but your data will not be present. Refer to Updating and restoring iPhone, iPad and iPod touch software.
    Try restoring the iOS device if backing up and erasing all content and settings doesn't resolve the issue. Using iTunes to restore iOS devices is part of standard isolation troubleshooting. Restoring your device will delete all data and content, including songs, videos, contacts, photos, and calendar information, and will restore all settings to their factory condition.
    Before restoring your iOS device, Apple recommends that you either sync with iTunes to transfer any purchases you have made, or back up new data (data acquired after your last sync). If you have movie rentals on the device, see iTunes Store movie rental usage rights in the United States before restoring.
    Follow these steps to restore your device:
         1. Verify that you are using the latest version of iTunes before attempting to update.
         2. Connect your device to your computer.
         3. Select your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch when it appears in iTunes under Devices.
         4. Select the Summary tab.
         5. Select the Restore option.
         6. When prompted to back up your settings before restoring, select the Back Up
             option (see in the image below). If you have just backed up the device, it is not
             necessary to create another.
         7. Select the Restore option when iTunes prompts you (as long as you've backed up,
             you should not have to worry about restoring your iOS device).
         8. When the restore process has completed, the device restarts and displays the Apple
             logo while starting up:
               After a restore, the iOS device displays the "Connect to iTunes" screen. For updating
              to iOS 5 or later, follow the steps in the iOS Setup Assistant. For earlier versions of
              iOS, keep your device connected until the "Connect to iTunes" screen goes away or
              you see "iPhone is activated."
         9. The final step is to restore your device from a previous backup. If you do not have a
              backup to restore, then restore as New.
    If you are restoring to fix a forgotten Restrictions Code or as a New device, then skip Step 9 and restore as New.
    If you mean unlocked from your carrier, then contact them as they are the only ones who can unlock the phone.

  • HT4962 i got an ipod touch from a friend when i connect it to my computer it doeas not connect to itune store or open anything what do i need to download

    I got an Ipod touchfrom a friend and when I connect it to my computer it does not open anything or acess the itune store. Where can I dowwnload new apps for it.

    You should install iTunes.
    Go and get it on the Apple website:

    If you have WiFi you can download apps directly from the iPod touch - go to the App Store application.
