I have itunes set up to sync with my Ipod Touch and my Ipad.  As of today, it keeps looking for an iPhone to sync with and give me an error message.  I don't have an iPhone and don't know how to stop it from popping open with this error message.

I have Itunes set up to sync with my Ipod touch and Ipad.  As of today, iTunes has started searching to sync with an iPhone, which I don't have and pops open with an error message stating it cannot locate the iPhone to sync.  I have looked in devices and only the iPad and iPod Touch are listed.  Any ideas on how to stop iTunes from searching for any iPhone it is never going to find? It is annoying to have it popping up all the time with the error message.  Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

You should really read the manual.
"How do you restore from backup? "
Restore.  When given the choice, choose to use backup.
"And how can I check to see if the pics and videos are on my computer somewhere first??"
They would only be where you put them.  What program did you use to import them?  Pics/vids taken with ipod are not part of the sync process at all.  You should be importing them just as you would with any digital camera.
If you did not import them, then they are not on your computer.

  • I have a Macbook with Tiger 10.4.1 and I am thinking of buying an Ipad .  Can I plug in my Ipod touch to my Ipad to transfer my music as I understand Tiger will not sync with Ipad

    I have also been told about Itunes Match but again I dont think this will work with Tiger

    You can't connect an iPod to an iPad to transfer content between the two - the most that you might be able to do is to copy photos from an iPod Touch to the iPad via the camera connection kit, but you can't tramsfer music. The minimum specs for syncing from a Mac is OS X 10.5.8
    The minimum requirements for iTunes Match for a Mac are (from here) :
    Mac OS X v10.6.8 or later
    Windows Vista or later
    iTunes 10.5.1 or later
    iOS 5 or later on iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S iPod touch (3rd and 4th generation), iPad, or iPad 2

  • I have an Ipad and several Ipods. We have deleted some songs from our devices but they still show up gray shaded. They don't play but I'd like to know how you remove them from your devices completly?

    I have several Ipods and an Ipad. We have all deleted music from our devices and the problem we are having is the song itself is gone which is what we wanted but the song title is still on the devices. It's grey and it won't play but I want to know how to remove the deleted songs completely off my devices.

    - Reset the iOS device. Nothing will be lost
    Reset iOS device: Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at
    least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
    - Unsync all music and resync
    - Reset all settings      
    Go to Settings > General > Reset and tap Reset All Settings.
    All your preferences and settings are reset. Information (such as contacts and calendars) and media (such as songs and videos) aren’t affected.
    - Restore from backup. See:                                 
    iOS: How to back up                             
    - Restore to factory settings/new iOS device.

  • Problem with my iPod touch: Frozen screen, unable to access anything as slider does not work, will not accept a full restore.  Apple Store advised that it is a 'hardware' problem and I could trade-in!

    I am a relatively 'new' user.  Touch was a gift, I used it in a simplistic way - listened to music took a few photos, added a few calendar events.  After a year I then decided to be more proactive and found a few free apps (Solitaire) - then had a the frozen screen problem which I though was connected to low battery, but it wasn't.  I recharged it, still could not access, then tried a full restore and got an error message.  Took it to a Genius Bar and was told it was a hardware problem and as it is out of warranty  I could trade in or just buy a different product.  As this is my first Apple product is this usual?  Do Apple products have a very short shelf life - I anticipated that it would last me longer than a year!  Has anyone else had this problem?  Was it able to be resolved? Or is it worth trying to get it repaired - and if so who can do it - Apple  Store did not offer that to me as an option?

    Sure sounds like a hardware problem. It happens some times. The iPod is just an electrical device.
    Apple will exchange it for a refurbished one for this price. Apple does not repair your iPod.

  • How to transfer contacts from LGENV2 (maybe with USB)?

    We recently purchased smart phones for our daughters.  They were very quick to get their phones out of the boxes and activate their phones.  Well, they hadn't backed up their contacts (or anything on their phones) before activating their new phones.  We now can't find a way to use Backup Assistant from the old phones (all are LGENV2s).  We do have the USB cable to connect the phones to our PC.  We'd appreciate any help.  Thanks.

    Thanks.  I paired them, and tried to send "namecard" (checked all the contacts), but the other device (iPhone 4s) isn't connecting.  Any ideas?

    You can actually use Bluetooth to transfer contacts! Just make sure they are paired together.

    Hi TakesTwo2Tango,
    Thanks for using Apple Support Communities.  It sounds like you should definitely be seeing a plus sign after tapping Edit, so I would try a couple relatively easy things (closing the Music app, resetting the iPhone):

  • I have an iPod touch and an iPad4. iTunes lets me work with the iPod Touch but won't show me what's on the iPad. Any ideas?

    I have an iPod Touch and an iPad4. iTunes recognises both items and lets me work with the iPod Touch but won't work with the iPad. In fact iTunes does not respond to clicking on anything in the iPad window even though it knows that it's connected. Any ideas?

    Look her and it may give insite on what is missing. Otherwise:
    Apple will exchange your iPod for a refurbished one for $99. Likely not worth it for a your iPod. They do not fix yours.
