Sync .m4b playlist with iOS 7

I think this is yet another issue with iOS 7s handling of audiobooks but... On my iPod 4th gen I can sync the audiobook playlists (.m4b files NOT .mp3) but they don't sync with my 5th generation iPod.  I make the playlists for books with multiple novels (like a trilogy) so they will play one after another so if I'm driving when one ends the next will start automatically... So anyone know? Is this just another poor change (like the lack of chapter-lists) to iOS 7 or is there a work-around I haven't yet found?  Will manual syncing allow me to do this? (I doubt it but...) .  This is on a Windows machine, iTunes 11.3 BTW, but I don't think that matters..

In iTunes on computer try changing the Media Kind (iTunes>Click on Get Info for the item>Option. It should them move to your Music library

  • I can't sync my playlists with ipod classic or a new ipod touch.

    I have been having problems with my iPod Classic in my car.  Colleague used his iphone with no issues. I reset my iPod classic to original factory settings but now when I sync my playlists with iTunes are not included.  Very strange.

    I'm having the same problem with my 30GB U2 iPod. I used iSquint to convert my video, and it plays perfectly fine on my iTunes, but it just goes to a black screen when I try to play it on my iPod. The movie is in Mpeg-4 format, which is supposed to work on the iPod-- right?

  • Syncing smart playlists with location set to "on this computer"

    I have a ton of playlists with multiple creitera that after the upgrade to iOS7 just stopped working entirely. It turns out that when I added "location - on this computer" as a filter to avoid seeing everything in my icloud, that no longer applied to media synced to iOS devices.
    I guess that makes sense, except the precedent was set when it worked in iOS6, and more importantly there isn't a filter setting for "on this computer and/or synced devices". There's just "on this computer" and "in the cloud".
    I can't be the only one annoyed with this. Can anyone think of a filter that would work for me?

    Bump? This is still driving me nuts.

  • ITunes - syncing over WiFi with iOS 7

    Ever since upgrading two phones to iOS 7, iTunes is spamming the console with constant disconnects:
    [date] server iTunes[pid]: Entered:_AMMuxedDeviceDisconnected, mux-device:id
    [date] server iTunes[pid]: Entered:__thr_AMMuxedDeviceDisconnected, mux-device:id
    etc etc
    This goes on for a while, about every 2 minutes, until iTunes hangs.
    Originally, I'd set up these phones to sync over WiFi. After switching this off – only for the devices on iOS 7 – the above errors stop ocurring. Again, this doesn't happen with iOS 6 devices.
    Running a Mac mini with Mac OS X 10.7.5.
    Any ideas beyond switching off WiFi syncing  – which is really inconvenient...

    Thank you very much!

  • Why can't I sync a playlist with only podcasts in it (to my IPHON4)?

    Made a playlist with specific podcasts in it. (my weekly show series I like to listen to)
    But, it will not sync the podcast shows. It seems like I can only sync the 10 or 5 or xx latest shows. Seems kind of dumb that I can't create a list to be able to listen to several podcasts in a user defined order....
    Grrrrr Steve....

    Are any of the podcasts video podcasts? If I recall, that will cause a problem.

  • Sync iTunes Playlist with other Mac

    Hey everybody!! I have an iMac with a 20.000+ Song Music Library which I do most of my work on. I also have a 128GB macbook air which I use for DJing.
    Is there any way that I could wirelessly sync the playlists I make on my iMac with my Macbook Air?
    I would be using iTunes Match but the problem is that matched songs are only available in 256k and I need them in 320k.
    Thanks in advance!

    do you mean "grind" as in a genre or something else? <<</div>
    "Grind" as in a Playlist change to your play list
    "FLASH:Grind:" as in the location your your flash drive "LEXAR MEDIA:Myfolder"

  • How do I sync a playlist with no name to iTunes?

    I created a playlist on the iPad itself and when the window came up to enter a name for the playlist, I hit down without typing anything. When I synced my iPad to iTunes, the unnamed playlist did not show up. Is there a way to rename this playlist or somehow get it to iTunes, or copy its content into a new playlist with a name?

  • Syncing ovi playlists with N8 device

    Is there a way to sync the playlists i have in my ovi suite with my N8? Dragging and dropping only copies them.
    Go to Solution.

    The OVI music player is of no use either. It does have an auto-transfer option. But it failed to copy the playlists to my device, leave alone syncing. Finally i had to settle down for drag n drop with OVI suite. But when i change the playlists then the trouble will start. Would have loved a sync option (which i gather, was in the earlier versions of OVI suite). Nokia, plz take notice...

  • Can't add songs to existing playlists with iOS 7.1

    Yesterday, I downloaded the new iOS 7.1 update.  Tonight I tried adding songs to an existing playlist, and they aren't there.  I went though the steps.  From Playlists, I tap edit, tap (+) to add songs and then tap on the songs I want to add.  Then I tap Done.  When I go back to the playlist, they aren't there.  Is this a glitch with the new update? Or is there a step I am missing?  Please help!!

    thanks for the info on the checkboxes.  They just seemed redundant to me
    If you use this feature, as shown in my previous screenshot, then unticking a song will cause it to be removed from your iPod at the next Sync, but left in your Library. Leave the ticks turned on.

    "By the way, on the right-click/Add to Playlist, the Playlist Folders are also listed, but you cannot add a song to a Playlist Folder."  If that's the case, what function does that option on the menu perform?
    The Playlist Folders are a method of grouping Playlists together, making them easier to find. The reason they are shown in the right-click is to make the Playlists easier to find. Look at the screenshot below, all the "Sleep" Playlists are in my "Sleep Time" folder.

    As to dragging a track to a playlist, what view lets you see the playlists and songs at the same time?
    If you have the Sidebar on (CTRL+S), the Songs View:
    ... and simply drag the song to any Regular Playlist.

  • ITunes library not syncing on iPhone4 with iOS 7.0.4

    Since the update to iOS 7.0.4, iTunes on my iPhone4 will not sync. It says it's syncing (I've tried syncing both wirelessly and with USB cable) but nothing changes. I've tried making a new playlist and moving songs, toggling things off and on, rebooting my MacBook Air, rebooting iTunes, and rebooting the phone, but it's not syncing. My iPad music library is syncing just fine since the iOS update so this seems to be a problem with the iPhone4.

    I have this EXACT same problem and have since the latest IOS upgrade last week.  No changes to the iTunes Library on a Windows 7 PC  are syncing to the iPhone 4.
    I've been able to get added songs to sync by UnChecking " Sync Music" in the Music tab, then hit Sync.  That will wipe out the music on the iPhone.  THEN , recheck the Sync Music and Sync again.
    The Sync is ignoring what has been "checked" in the iTunes library on the PC.  It will only Sync what has been selected in the Sync options when the iPhone has been connected and the sync function launched.
    Apple ???   Are you listening ???  

  • Why wont my iPhone 4 sync certain playlists? iOS 5.1.1 and iTunes 10.6.3

    Recently, my iPhone 4 wont sync any new playlists. When I tick the box for the playlist I want to sync, the data boxes move and the song count increases, but when I click sync, it does nothing and the playlist isn't visible on the iPhone.
    So far, I've completely wiped the iPhone (doing a full restore) and tried to sync from scratch, but it seems only to be syncing the ones I had on already before I wiped it, which is very odd. Any ideas anyone?

    Well, you have to minimally upgrade to Snow Leopard 10.6.8:
    Upgrading to Snow Leopard
    You can purchase Snow Leopard through the Apple Store: Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard - Apple Store (U.S.). The price is $19.99 plus tax. You will be sent physical media by mail after placing your order.
    After you install Snow Leopard you will have to download and install the Mac OS X 10.6.8 Update Combo v1.1 to update Snow Leopard to 10.6.8 and give you access to the App Store. Access to the App Store enables you to download Mountain Lion if your computer meets the requirements.
         Snow Leopard General Requirements
           1. Mac computer with an Intel processor
           2. 1GB of memory
           3. 5GB of available disk space
           4. DVD drive for installation
           5. Some features require a compatible Internet service provider;
               fees may apply.
           6. Some features require Apple’s iCloud services; fees and
               terms apply.
    But this costs money, so you can't do it. That means your are stuck where you are.

  • Can't get WiFi sync to work with iOS 5 devices

    I have an iPad 1 and an iPhone 3GS, both running iOS 5.  I can't get either device to synch to my iTunes library wirelessly.  I have seen the procedures in the KB, but the part that I am missing is that neither device has the "Sync with this iOS device over WiFi" option in the device summary in iTunes, even though I am running iTunes 10.5.  Is this because I am running OS X 10.5?

    Oops, she rebooted and problem solved.

  • Address Book Server will not sync all fields with iOS client

    I am getting really frustrated with my Mac Mini Server.
    Apparently, the Address Book Server DOES NOT sync all fields.
    Only standard vCard-fields seem to synced.
    I have not successfully synced user-defined fields, such as an additional date.
    Any ideas / infos on how to achieve this if this possible at all?
    Thanks for the input,
    One thing: I posted the same question in the "Lion" (non-server) discussion - sorry for any confusion.
    One thing I noticed:
    All changes made on the server in the OS X Address Book are distributed to two iOS clients (iPod 4th Gen iOS4 iPhone 3GS iOS 4).
    Any help is appreciated.

    Sorry for answering myself...
    I just found out that after editing the newly distributed entry on an iOS4-Client, some fields on the server are deleted!

  • ITunes wifi sync not working with iOS 7.1

    After upating my (2) iPads and iPhone to iOS 7.1 none of these devices will sync with iTunes version 11.1.5 via wi-fi.  Is there a fix for this?
