I have iTunes match, and deleted all my music on the iPhone, but that had no effect on the phantom playlist that shows up on the PC when I plug in the iPhone to the PC. I cannot manually move songs or playlists from the PC to the iPhone
Help greatly appreciated.

Unplug your Iphone out of your computer and replug it back in. It took me several times before I could do this

    I recently purchased a Windows 8 laptop and istalled Office 2013.  I then installed iTunes. After moving all my music to my new PC I got iTunes to import it, and then synced it to my iPod (3rd gen.) However, I cannot get iTunes to sync my Outlook Calendar or Contacts with my iPod.  When I try it crashes Outlook.  iTunes continues to try to sync, but when it finishes my Calendar and Contents are empty (ERASED!).  I have de-installed and re-installed iTunes (according to Apple's instructions), repaired Office 2013 and Outlook, scanned for viruses (etc), cleaned out temp folders, defragmented, etc., etc., etc. Has anyone seen this before, and does anyone know houw to fix it?  (HELP!)

    You first have to subscribe to iTunes Match through iTunes on your computer and have your music library in iTunes uploaded/matched before you can enable it on your iOS devices (see http://www.apple.com/itunes/itunes-match/).  Without a computer you won't be able to use iTunes Match.

  • I have Itunes Match and want to know how to put music back into the Cloud after I have downloaded it and finished listening to it. I need the space on my Iphone/Ipad back after I'm finished listening to the music I wanted.

    I have Itunes Match and want to know how to put music I have downloaded from the Cloud back in the Cloud for storage after listening to it.

    TThis answered my question - thanks very much

  • I have itunes match and my phone is still filled with songs and have no room for anything else.

    I have itunes match and my phone is still filled with songs and have no room for anything else. Must be a set up issue since I assumed all songs would be in the cloud and not on my phone.

    Match backs up your music in iCloud, it does not remove it from the phone. It still needs to be on the phone if you want to listen to it.

    - The iTunes backup that iTunes makes included photos in the camera roll. If yo go to iTunes>Preferences>Devices what is the date of the backup? Is it when the photos were on the iPod? You have to restore from that backup.
    - What may have happened is that you backup the iPod after you restored the iPod but before restoring from backup. iTunes only keeps one backup and overwrites the previous backup with the changes.

    Start Firefox in [[Safe Mode]] to check if one of the add-ons is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Add-ons > Themes).
    * Don't make any changes on the Safe mode start window.
    See:
    * [[Troubleshooting extensions and themes]]
    * [[Troubleshooting plugins]]
    If it does work in Safe-mode then disable all extensions and then try to find which is causing it by enabling one at a time until the problem reappears.
    * Use "Disable all add-ons" on the [[Safe mode]] start window to disable all extensions.
    * Close and restart Firefox after each change via "File > Exit" (Mac: "Firefox > Quit"; Linux: "File > Quit")

    I have changed my Iphone once last year. My iphone has being playing up for the best part of 6 months. It Keeps deleting all my music of the phone. it freezes and will not allow me to turn it on or off. if i am in the middle of an app it will randomly shut it down and turn the phone off totally (even if it is charged.) It will not charge properly, it has to be in a exact position to charge and even then go's off and on. I thought this my be my charger but the charger works fine on another phone. it will not allow texts to come through properly and sometimes will not not let me ring people it just freezes and i have to turn it off and on a couple of times in order for it to work. it will not let me update apps and the silent button is not silent it still go's of on ringer.The keyboard will freeze up not allowing me to type anything.  It wants me to pay £126.44 for it to be repaire when i have nothing to do with why its not working!

    That is correct.
    That is the price of a replacement iphone once your iphone is outside of the warranty period

    Welcome to the Apple Community.
    Use your Time Machine (or other) back up to return to the point before you deleted them.

  • I have itunes match and i see all my must but half the time it doesn't play,  what am i doing wrong, it's very frustrating

    i pay for itunes match, downloaded all my cd's and i see it on my phone but half the songs don't play,  what am i doing wrong?   i didn't think you had to actually download them onto the phone, this was the idea of not using the storage, right?

    All iTunes Match music is downloaded to iOS devices in order to play them.  They don't stream like services like Pandora do, whch only stream the music to your device without storing it.  With iTunes Match a song must be stored on the device in order to be played.  But here's where it gets a bit confusing.
    If you tap the cloud with the downward facing arrow next to a song on your phone it will download and stored on your phone and this will allow you to later delete it by swiping over the song title and tapping Delete.  In fact, you can later locate all the songs you have downloaded in this way by going to Settings>iTunes & App Store and turn off Music under Show All.  The music app will then only display the songs previously downloaded to your phone, making it easier to delete them to free up space if you no longer wish to store them on your phone.  Go back and turn Music back on under Show All in order to see your entire iTunes Match library again.
    However, you can still play a song by simply tapping the title (without tapping the download icon).  When you do this, the song plays, but is still downloaded and stored on your phone as you listen to it.  The disadvantage of this is that these songs are stored in cache memory and cannot be manually deleted by swiping over the song title.  According to Apple, this cache memory is automatically cleared over time as the memory on your phone starts to fill up (by deleting the oldest and least played songs from cache memory).  If you want, you can still force this memory to be cleared by restoring your phone.
    The main takeaway from all of this is that iTunes Match, while making your entire library available to play without storing the music on it ahead of time, still stores songs as you play them, or as you manually download them prior to playing them.
    If your songs are not playing when you tap them while away from your wifi, make sure you have Use Cellular Data turned on in Settings>iTunes & App Store.  This allows them to be downloaded and played using your cellular data plan while away from wifi.

  • Help: iTunes wants to delete all my music and videos off of my iPhone!

    I usually keep the option to manually manage music and videos on my iPhone. I only use 1 pc to transfer music and movies to and from my iPhone. Recently for some reason when I launched iTunes, an error message kept poping up repeatedly saying "The iTunes Library file cannot be saved." I fixed the error message by adjusting the user access privileges to my music folder.
    Now my music library is completely empty in iTunes, but that shouldn't be a problem because I manually manage my music and videos. However, when I checked the iPhone page in iTunes, the checkbox for manually manage music and videos is unchecked.
    So I went to go check the check box so that I can continue to add some more music and videos to my iPhone, however a message box pops up saying:
    "The iPhone "my iPhone" is synced with another iTunes library. Do you want to erase this iPhone and sync with this iTunes library?"
    I have about 12 gigs worth of music and videos which I have carefully hand picked over a period of about 3 months and now iTunes wants to delete all of it because it thinks I want to "sync with another library". I only hope someone can understand how frustrating this is for me. All I want to do is continue to be able to add music and videos to my iPhone without having to erase months worth of work putting the current music I have on there. Can anyone help me?

    Thanks for your reply. I don't keep all of my music in the iTunes' designated music folder. I don't like the way iTunes reorganizes my songs and I keep all my music in my own self organized music folders as I don't use iTunes as my primary media application. Not to mention allot of my files come from all different corners of my computer's hard drive. It would literally take months to go through over 20 gigs of media files to pick out the songs I have in my iPhone library to rebuild an iTunes library. Like i said, I don't even use iTunes other than to transfer files to my iPhone. I thought the purpose of manually managing the files was so you don't have to sync it with the iTunes library but now it won't give my that option without requiring me to delete everything on my phone I worked so hard on.
    What I don't understand is logically or technically why iTunes HAS to delete all the content off of my iphone. Who's decision in the Apple's software engineering department was to require the one's iPhone to be erased if someone loses their iTunes library? Its frustrating because it makes no sense and I feel as if the software is punishing me for reasons I don't understand by threatening to delete all my content off my phone. Is there absolutely no way to transfer my music to my iPhone without deleting everything currently on and completely rebuilding my music library from scratch?
