HT5661 I have my moms old ipod and I have been trying to put my itunes purchases on the ipod and it keeps telling my I have to wait 90 days before I can do this.  Is there are way to get my purchases onto the ipod??

My mother gave me her old ipod since she has an iphone.  I reset the ipod and signed in under my apple id but the ipod tells me I can't download my previous purchase music because I have to wait 90 days.  What can I do instead of waiting 90 days to use the ipod?  This is the 3rd generation I think without the camera.

You have to sync them from a computer that has those songs. You can't redownload for 90 days
This describes the 90 day period

    Create a dummy contact on your new PC in Outlook.  In iTunes, elect to synch your contacts with Outlook.  You will be prompted to "merge" your contacts.  Once done and all your contacts are on your computer in Outlook, you can delete the "dummy" contact.

  • I have an 06' macbook and I just bought an 07' macbook.. The 06' has os x 10.6 but the 07' has 10.5.. I no longer have the disk for snow leopard. Is there ANY way to get snow leopard from the old computer to the other without having to buy it again?

    Technical issues aside, there's still a legal issue.
    Neither 2006 nor 2007 MacBooks shipped with Snow Leopard 'factory' installed. OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard became available in September 2009. So you purchased and installed a Snow Leopard upgrade disc on the 2007 system at some point.
    If your Snow Leopard upgrade was a single-user copy, then legally, you need to purchase another one for the second computer. If your Snow Leopard upgrade was a Family Pack 5-user license, then you're good to go.

    If you have an active MobileMe account, Apple was giving away a single-user upgrade copy of Snow Leopard for a limited time, and you should have received an email with a link, or been offered the opportunity when you signed in to your MobileMe account on the web:

    Worst case, single-user Snow Leopard upgrade discs are $29 retail, direct from Apple. I'd hate to have two computers and no OS installation CD's for whatever version I'm currently using.

  • I have an iPod whose contents I want to transfer to a newer Ipod.  At some stage I lost the music files from my library.  Is there any way to get them back from the older iPod and put them onto the newer one again?  I stupidly synced the wrong one.

    Have you not got a backup of your content on, for example, external drives ? If not then you could have a look to see if any of the utilities mentioned in this old post still exist and work : https://discussions.apple.com/message/11014893?messageID=11014893#11014893

    Thanks but have tried that - When I try to restore I get a -50 error and into a loop of taking another back up.  I took a copy of the back up before the IOS upgrade and have it stored on my desk top but I cannot get Itunes to restore to that back up
    Any ideas how I can do this?

    Nope, it either needs to be plugged in or turned on with the power button.
    A replacement iPhone 4 is $149, but at least the whole phone is replaced.

  • Is there a way to get a log of the bluetooth devices my iphone has been connected to?   My Bluetooth car speaker phone was recently stolen from my car and appears to be on Craigslist.

    Your contacts should still be on whatever program you sync your iphone to (i.e. Outlook, address book).
    The iphone is not a stand alone device. It is designed to be synced with a computer. If you have not been syncing with a compatible program, then you are out of luck. Your contacts are not included in the back-up because it is meant to be synced with your computer.
    "Although iTunes backs up most of your iPhone and iPod touch settings, downloaded applications, and other information (Contacts, calendars, notes, images in the Camera Roll), your audio, video, and photo content are not included in the backup."

  • HT204409 I am trying to log onto my wireless connection but it keeps telling me I'm unable to locate any wireless network.  I know there are several networks nearby. Is this a problem with my phone or my router?

    I am trying to log onto my wireless connection but it keeps telling me I'm unable to locate any wireless network.  I know there are several networks nearby. Is this a problem with my phone or my router?

    I found a solution that has worked on both iPhone 4's I have that have had the same issues, and also including not being able to download updates in the App store.
    Go to Settings > WiFi and turn it OFF.
    Next go to General > Cellular > Cellular Data and turn it OFF
    Next go back to Settings > WiFi and turn it ON, (wait a few seconds for it to sync with your network)
    Finally go back to General > Cellular > Cellular Data and turn it ON.
    I had the same issues on both my wife's phone, and my own, and it fixed it immediately without changing any proxy settings or reboots, (which I did try on my phone and did not work, but did not try on my wife's phone)
    Hope this helps!

  • Is there a way of getting your songs off your ipod?

    Okay, so i have my ipod synced with a computer that i'll never see again. It was my ex boyfriends...is there a way of getting my songs off my ipod and on to my new computer or am i basically screwed if i want to add new songs?

    Connect your iPod to your computer. If it is set to update automatically you'll get a message that it is linked to a different library and asking if you want to link to this one and replace all your songs etc, press "Cancel". Pressing "Erase and Sync" will irretrievably remove all the songs from your iPod. Your iPod should appear in the iTunes source list from where you can change the update setting to manual and use your iPod without the risk of accidentally erasing it. Also when using most of the utilities listed below your iPod needs to be enabled for disc use, changing to manual update will do this by default. Check the "manually manage music and videos" box in Summary then press the Apply button: Managing content manually on iPod
    Once you are safely connected there are a few things you can do to restore your iTunes from the iPod. If you have any iTunes Music Store purchases the transfer of purchased content from the iPod to authorised computers was introduced with iTunes 7. You'll find details in this article: Copying iTunes Store purchases from your iPod to a computer
    The transfer of content from other sources such as songs imported from CD is designed by default to be one way from iTunes to iPod. However there are a number of third party utilities that you can use to retrieve the music files and playlists from your iPod. You'll find that they have varying degrees of functionality and some will transfer movies, videos, photos, podcasts and games as well. Have a look at the web pages and documentation, this is just a small selection of what's available, they are generally quite straightforward. You can read reviews of some of them here: Wired News - Rescue Your Stranded Tunes
    TuneJack Windows Only
    iPod2PC Windows Only
    iGadget Windows Only
    iDump Windows Only
    iRepo Mac and Windows
    iPodRip Mac & Windows
    YamiPod Mac and Windows
    Music Rescue Mac & Windows
    iPodCopy Mac and Windows
    There is also a manual method of accessing the iPod's hard drive and copying songs back to iTunes on Windows or a Mac. The procedure is a bit involved and won't recover playlists but if you're interested it's available at this link: Two-way Street: Moving Music Off the iPod
    Whichever of these retrieval methods you choose, keep your iPod in manual mode until you have reloaded your iTunes and you are happy with your playlists etc then it will be safe to return it auto-sync. I would also advise that you get yourself an external hard drive and back your stuff up, relying on an iPod as your sole backup is not a good idea and external drives are comparatively inexpensive these days, you can get loads of storage for a reasonable outlay.

  • Just downloaded itunes on new computer, is there a way to get my purchased folder back?

  • Is there a way to get lightroom to search the computer for catalogs like aperture does?

    Is there a way to get lightroom to search the computer for catalogs like aperture does? I've switched over from Aperture to Lightroom, and i liked how in Aperture when i went to open "other library" it would basically scan all connected drives for them, and show me when last opened and what version. Is there a way to do this with Lightroom, either in program or by a third party app?

    The user interface is on a level of elementary PC software
    something I have deteced till now
    no free moving workspace windows
    no search function for the whole catalog
    no support of mpg files in the archive
    no chromatic appararture correction
    second screen sometimes gets lost, when moving between screens
    no automatic creation of collection ( very risky direct interfacing with the original file system )
    wrong counting of objects in catalog folder when creating virtuel copies
    What worked good is the import of the APERTURE Archive ( 40000 objects ) took me one night and its there with the above obsticles!!! I am using just three days and I have to say
    not user friendly
    not workflow supporting
    risky user interfacing with masters
    As JimHess stated, there is no risk working with the masters.
    Chromatic aberation correction is available in Lightroom, searching the entire catalog is available in Lightroom.
    With regards to your other comments, the idea that Lightroom should work the same (or very similar) to Aperture is one that you should remove from your thoughts. It will only get you into trouble. Lightroom is not Aperture and will not work the same, and has different underlying principles, and so its pointless to think you will be able to do everything the same way you did it in Aperture. You need to be open to Lightroom's features, and Lightroom's way of doing things. I agree with JimHess that it takes most people a while to learn Lightroom's way of doing things, but your patience will be rewarded.
