How do you work with iTunes 10.6 and 10.7?

My G5 will not run 10.7 so if I update the powerbook running Lion then will the library on the G5 be able to sync to the iPhone? or will the libraries be incompatible?
beyond that are there any unforseen castrophies which I have not thought of yet?
The photo library had to be moved to the laptop as iPhoto needed to be upgraded so when I sync my iPhone I attach it to the laptop and open the itunes library over the network in the G5 machine.  Then I have to quit iTunes on the laptop and reopen it on the G5.  There is a rebuilding of a file which takes some time afterwards and then iTunes works on the G5 and with my Apple TV. 
Now with iOS6 out I have to upgrade my version of iTunes.  My fear is that this will disable the compatibility of the library which couldn't fit on the laptop any way. 
If I made a new library on the laptop that referenced the files on the G5 would that even work? There would be two libraries to keep in sync which would be a pain, and furthermore, would it matter if I was networked to the G5 over wired ethernet, 802.11n, vs firewire?  I mean, would I have to always have the same scheme for the network and have it function?  Else, how can you have a laptop function on the desk, couch, bedroom, kitchen counter... and have access to all the files that are on the G5 which is essentially functioning as a space heater, sound jukebox with its fiberoptic audio, internet station, and with the ability to store 6 TB of data internally, it serves the media library very well.  The powerbook cannot do this at all. 
Please share your thoughts and suggestions.
Regards,
Tommy

An older iTunes will not open the library once used by a newer version.
iTunes 10.6.3 will work with iOS6 as long as the hardware doesn't post-date the release of 10.7  Use iTunes 10.6.3 on both machines.

  • How to synchronize iPhone with iTunes in Mac and BootCamp.

    Hi,
    I have a Macbook Pro and recently I purchased an iPhone. For work reasons I use windows as well as Mac OS ( I prefeer MacOS by in my company we develop windows software...)
    The problem is that I synchronized my iPhone with iTunes in Windows and I want to use my iPhone with Mac iTunes too.
    I think a possible solution is to use the same library in the two OS, and I don't know if it is possible.
    In Mac OS I don't have write access to BootCamp's NTFS file-system partition, so I use a Windows software to full acces to Mac OS partition. For me the solution would be to place windows iTunes library files in MacOS partition and use these files with MacOS iTunes as library too, but I don't know if it's possible.
    If anyone have any other idea how to solve this problem...
    Thanks,
    Raul

    All your contacts, photos, music etc. should be on your computer, so you just sync the second iPhone to the same computer as the first iPhone.

  • (CRM-) ISA-developers: How do you work with NWDS?

    Hello,
    starting ISA-webapplication-development nearly 4 years ago under CRM 3.0, I used JBuilder 5 as IDE (this was the recommendation of SAP), Perforce for version-controlling and Tomcat as local webapplication-server. It took some effort to build up projects in JBuilder, but after that everything was possible I expect from a modern IDE: coding of java and JSPs with method-suggestion, syntax-check of java and JSPs, building up war- and ear-files, ...
    In the last months my enterprise migrated to CRM 4.0, and now the new development tools are Netweaver Developer Studio and SAP J2EEngine 6.40. And this is the point where the problems begin: In the "ISA Development and Extension Guide" there is only documented how to build up a java-project for compiling your own classes. But compiling java classes is only one of the required development tasks I need. What about JSP development? Why use an external tool as ISA build tool to build the ear-file, then call the external SDM-tool for deploying the new web-application, if this is (theoretically) possible in NWDS?
    Yes, I know that it is possible to setup J2EE-projects in NWDS.
    Yes, I know that there are plugins as wst for doing jobs as JSP-syntax-checking as mentioned above.
    But up to now I was not succesful to configure the NWDS with any plugins (one of the problems: I did only find Eclipse 1.3 plugins which seems to be incompatible with NWDS basing on old ecplise 1.2) or setup NWDS-projects to get the old quality of JBuilder-development.
    So is there anybody out there who extended the NWDS with any plugins and built up succesfully the necessary NWDS-projects for doing all this tasks that effective ISA-webapplication-development is possible?
    With best regards,
    Holger Dittrich

    To all,
    First off let me start by saying the the SAP NetWeaver Develper Studio is designed to work more with portals than with CRM and r/3 web apps.  With that said you can confidently do extreme modifications with the NWDS.  IN my environment I use J2EE 6.20 and J2EE6.40 with NWDS CRM and R/3 ISA B2B B2C with the Build Tool and SDM all working without any glitches.  I know, web work with SAP and no glitches but it can be done.
    Use the NWDS for modifcation the Java, STRUT, JSP, HTML, and any other individual files within the web-app root.
    Use the SAP Build Tool to rename and build the ear's that will be migrated through out your infrastructures landscape.
    Use Software Delivery Manager (SDM) for the loose deployment of ear's and sca's.  The SDM configures the library.txt and reference.txt files within the J2EE with the system libraries your version of EAR's and SCA's require.
    J2EE to run the application in testing and live environment.
    Let me answer one very important question.  Why should I use a seperate build and delivery tool when that functoanlity is in NWDS?  Remember the NWDS is designed to integrate tightly into the portals realm.  Portals is a very strict environment while ISA is loose and allows for greatest amount of customizations.  The Deploy and Build functonality within the NWDS are designed to work with portal apps or views not with full blown stand alone web-apps.
    If anyone is interested in how to get all of the pieces to talk to each other J2EE, NWDS, Build Tool, SDM let me know through this thread.  I used to teach this class for SAP America and can provide you with a docuemnt on creating an ISA project with NWDS and exporting to the Build Tool and redeploying through the SDM.

  • Pure Music software player is not working with iTunes 10.4 and Lion 10.7 playing wav. files.

    Pure Music player from Channel D software will not work when playing wav. files after updating to Lion OS. I can open the application as usual but after playing one song it will not advance to the next track either on its own or manually. The scrolling track name goes dim and I cannot get the play button to respond. Has anyone else experienced this problem?
    Ron

    Thanks Limnos, but unfortunately the same error still remains.
    The disk was OK.  Permissions had errors along the lines of groups should be 0, is 80.  I repaired that.  Tried again to open, then reinstalled (new download again), but again the same problem.
    I checked permissions again and some of the 0-80 errors came again, but no clear reason from there I think
    Was also a SUID warning on ARDAgent but I see online that doesn't appear to be something abnormal.
    I tried reloading Lion but the installation came back with software appears to have been tampered with (I think the dmg file is gone as I couldn't find it).  I then went to email to report a problem so I could download again but of course that whole process doesn't work because itunes wont open.
    So Stuck
    if there is anything else I might be missing?

  • How do you subscribe with iTunes to a podcast not listed in iTunes store?

    It's listed with Podcast Alley, and I'd like to have it automatically download in iTunes, feed my ipod, etc etc, all the organization stuff we love about Apple etc. But I can't findinstructions for how to add it to my list of iTunes podcasts and subscribe. Anybody know how to do this?
    thanks!

    Click on the Subscribe button on Podcast Alley, it will take you to a new page. In the middle section of the new page is the basic URL you need to feed into iTunes. Copy that string to your clipboard and return to iTunes.
    From iTunes, select "Subscribe to podcast..." from the Advanced menu. Paste the URL from podcast alley into the box and hit OK.

  • Wifi not working with iTunes, apps store and some, but not all Internet sites....why???

    Yesterday I noticed while browsing Internet that some sites would not open and that some games I regularly play would not open. I also found that I could not open either the apps store or iTunes. Everything seemed to be working the day before and I have not recently upgraded ios (been on version 6.1.3 for a while) or changed any settings on my iPad (2).  With Internet research today I found suggestion that if I switched to 3G I would be able to access these apps and,sure enough, under 3G connection everything works fine. Some other forums suggest changing wifi router settings to fix the issue ....I have not tried this as I wouldn't  like to mess with my router and end up effecting other peripherals/pc's connected to it that are working fine....especially when I am not terribly IT savvy when it comes to hardware settings.  But as I haven't changed anything on my ipad why would my wifi suddenly stop connecting to some apps on my iPad, but not all??? Interestingly I can access many Internet sites (forums) with wifi connection but not the apple forum! To get to anything apple related I have to switch back to 3G ....that includes checking the iOS version I am on via settings!
    I also mention that I have done all the other suggested fixes found on various forums, such as rebooting iPad, renewing wifi lease, clearing cookies, closing all apps etc etc, to no avail. Seems the only suggested fix I have not tried is mucking around with my router which I am very hesitant to do given the **** I went through with my telco when my home Internet connection suddenly stopped working last year. Took me weeks of phone calls to get my internet connection back and being forced by the telco to a more expensive plan, hence very reluctant to start mucking around with that side of things, but why should I need to when it does seem to be working ok with other devices in the home?
    I have started this as new discussion as, even though I am not terribly IT savvy,  I cant see how this could be related to the wifi issues that many on the newer devices (iPhone 5 and iPad mini etc) are reporting as I haven't recently upgraded anything on my ipad and all was working perfectly up until yesterday.
    Any other suggestions on how to get wifi working correctly again on iPad or do I really have to risk the working of every other device in my home and chase it from modem/router side?

    Hi there,
    You mentioned that you have tried a few troubleshooting steps already, but you may want to take a look at the article below, specifically the section titled "If you are unable to access the Internet while connected to a Wi-Fi network"

  • Ipod Classic 160 6th g. doesn't sync w/Imac g5 non intel OS 10.4.11. This is a replacement for same ipod which was stolen recently. That pod worked fine with Itunes 9! Now this pod says it only works with Itunes 10.7. ***!!!! Why has Apple screwed up?

    My ipod classic 160 6th gen. was recently stolen. It had 3000 tunes on it and it synced perfectly with Itunes 9 on my Imac G5 non intel OS 10.4.11. So I recently bought same model and guess what, it doesn't sync at all. Now message says it only works with Itunes 10.7 and up. I certainly cant afford to buy a new intel based Mac and I really dont need a new pc. It feels like Apple has dropped the ball on its long time users and tough luck to you and all the $$$$$$$ spent on downloading songs and buying ipods over the years! I AM SO ANGRY THAT I CANNOT BRING MY MUSIC WITH ME ANYMORE. I dont know if there is any solution to this except being extorted to upgrade to new tech! I have been trying to get answers to this issue but nothing seems to work. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am not a tech genius so extremely techy solutions will be in vane.

    one more detail, after a restore, when I attempt to reload music to the ipod, if I try and move, say, 20 files, the transfer seems to work as it should but then stalls on the last file.  Eventually, the status will change to "Updates Files on (my ipod)" a and suggests the iPod is syncing  even though I have the auto sync feature turned off.
    This process eventually works itself out, and seems to take longer relative to the number of files I attempt to transfer.   Once done, howver, if I try and eject and dismount the iPod, iTunes stalls with the spinning pinwheel and I am warned that the iPod is syncing again with the spinning candy cane status bar.     Eventually thisd works itself out and the iPod dismounts from iTunes and the desktop and eventually the iPod is free to disconnect.
    Then if I try and play the music I just transfered, the iPod says there is no music loaded.
    Ideas?

  • My iPod Classic is seen by Windows but not by iTunes.  I have reset it, gone to disk mode and it won't show up in iTunes.  There appears to be music on it in a file called MUSICSAVE.  How can I get this to work with iTunes again?

    1. Update iTunes to the latest version. Plug in your iPod. If iTunes still can't recognize it, then in iTunes in the top left corner click help> run diagnostics. On the box that comes up, check the last two things. Click next and it should identify your iPod.
    2. Click on your windows start menu. Type in "services". Click on it and when it pops up, on the bottom of it click on "standard". Now Scroll down to find "Apple Mobile Device" Right click it when you see it and click on "Start". When it has started, close iTunes and replug in your iPod and it should show up.
    3. Check the USB cable
    4 Verify that Apple Mobile Device Support is installed
    5. Restart the Apple Mobile Device Service and verify that the Apple Mobile Device USB Driver is installed.
    6. If you just want to add some photos, songs and movies from computer to your devices, you can use an iTunes alternative to do the job
    7. Check for third-party software conflicts.

  • How do I make my iPod classic work with iTunes 9.1

              How do I make my iPod classic work with iTunes 9.1?

    You are correct in some of your assertions, Limnos but, if I were to follow Apple's wishes, I would have to purchase the latest and greatest Apple product every month!  I refuse to do that.  I understand that my G4 is old but, it does what I need it to do.  To answer your question though, I purchased the iPod classic as a refurbished unit, about 5 years ago and had it replaced three times, since then so, there is no way for me to know how old it is.
    From my knowledge of how the Classics work(which is extensive.)  It is basically a hard disk.  There should be of performing a low level format, plug it back in and the G4 should recognize the ROm and automatically search for the correct software associated with that version of iPod and load it but, Apple will most likely no longer carry the software on their servers anymore!(surprise,surprise.)

    An icloud account is designed to be used by one user.  That user can have all his/her devices synced with the same Apple data (email, contacts, calendars, notes, reminders, etc.) .  When two people use the same account, then problems usually occur when one user edits data that the other user doesn't want changed on their device.  You can continue sharing the same ID for the itunes account in order to share the purchased music, apps, etc.  itunes accounts and icloud accounts are different.
    It's by far better that each user has his/her own icloud account.
