  • New itunes wont sync iphone

    i had to get a new hardrive which has wiped off my itunes i redownloaded it but now it wont sync songs i have put on my itunes to my iphone, it syncs it but nothing goes on it, what do i do?

    For managing audio and video contents of the iPod and iPhone you can find some lighter and faster alternatives to iTunes.

  • Syncing iph4 - unknown error (-50)

    I am getting the following error message and my iph 4 wont sync calendars - unknown error (-50). Any suggestions?

    Is this error popping up within iTunes?  A Google search returned this result.

    Delete Storm Video, QuickTime, iTunes, then reinstall iTunes.

  • I upgraded my iphone 5 to iOS 8 and now i get an itunes error message when I try to sync "this iphone cannot be synced. Unknown error.

    I upgraded my iphone 5 to iOS 8 and now i get an itunes error message when I try to sync "this iphone cannot be synced. Unknown error. (-50). my icloud drive was stuck in an upgrade cycle, but i've stopped that and still get the error message.

    I restarted itunes and tried again (based on a similar question/solution from 2012).
    I don't get the error message anymore, but it's really sort of odd that after step one of sync, it looks as if sync stopped, and then all of a sudden you see step 4 of sync.
    Also before the upgrade I had 7+ gigs of space free and after the upgrade I have 10 gigs free. seems like something is amiss, but it's not like I have anyway of determining that.

  • ITunes could not sync ^0 to the iPhone Unknown Error(-19) during 2.1 update

    iTunes could not sync ^0 to the iPhone Unknown Error (-19) during 2.1 update
    Anybody getting this? On a Win XP iTunes 8/ iPhone 3G
    Thanks for any help!

    I got this message. After several hours of frustration...
    I finally did a successful update by following various recommendations in this thread.
    Maybe all or only a combination were necessary:
    1) Deleted my backups. This DOES appear to be necessary, I noticed that the update was always failing when the update was going through the backup process. It was only after I deleted my backups that the update finally worked. To do this, in iTunes go to Edit > Preferences. Click on the Devices tab. Click on (select) the iPhone in the window. Click on the "Delete Backup" button.
    2) Disable automatic syncing for the iPhone (don't know if this was necessary but it's one of the steps I took)
    3) Make sure all your Apps are updated before trying the iPhone update. (Again I don't know if this was necessary but I did it). I updated my apps over wi-fi from the iPhone rather than via iTunes.
    Important!!!!! After you run the update there will be no backup of your iPhone. You need to create a new one. To do this, right click (option-click) on your iPhone in the "Devices" list of iTunes. Select "Back Up" from the context menu.
    Hope this helps!!!!

  • Itunes wont sync music to iphone 5c

    itunes wont sync music to iphone 5c, skips music portion of sync and gets stuck on "waiting for changes to be applied"
    also wont remove cloud downloaded previously purchased songs during sync, i have restored the phone from my old one that was destroyed, but other than that sync pretty much doesnt work at all for photos or anything else.
    plenty of available space on brand new phone
    IOS 7.0.4
    itunes 11.1.3.8

    After days of getting frustrated I finally found a solution: Don't use itunes to sync music. After going through pages of possible solutions (restores, syncing albums one at a time, removing all music, deactivating accounts, making a call while syncing and various other things) as well as trying to contact apple support (Which was a joke--They wanted to charge me $19.00 to get help for a problem with their software), I change my Google search terms to "how to sync music without itunes" and  I found a program called CopyTrans Manager for free. It only took me a few minutes to add the new tracks to my iphone. It automatically organizes it the same way itunes would and you have the option to make your own playlists. Best of all it synced the first try! Itunes is now dead to me. Now I just have to figure out what I'm going to do with all the free time I have since I'm not going to be spending hours banging my head at my computer ready to throw my phone out the window.

  • The iPhone cannot be synced. Unknown error (13019) - anyone run into this?

    The iPhone cannot be synced. Unknown error (13019) - anyone run into this?

    Stephen's got you covered.
    I've also seen the following reported cause/workaround:
    After several Google searches I found the iPad syncing problem to be caused by iPhoto 9.4 not handling the & correctly in names. It's not recognizing them as & which is causing problems with XML. You can manually change them or wait for Apple to issue a fix to iPhoto 9.4. I started to do the manual fix & I just have too many to change.
    (Manual renaming isn't going to be an easy/good workaround for a bunch of folks, though.)

  • Already tried FAQ, keep getting this message on iPhone and computer: iTunes could not connect to iTunes store. An unknown error occurred (11556)

    Only happened after I got a new iPhone *(upgraded from 4 to 5c) and I downloaded the iOS 8.1.2 update.
    I've already tried everything on the FAQ page for this error, and nothing's worked yet.
    Error looks like this iTunes on my computer: iTunes could not connect to iTunes store. An unknown error occurred (11556)
    Also won't connect on my iPhone after signing in.
    Just changed my password so it's not that, and I've already restarted my iPhone twice.
    PLEASE help. I just got an iPhone 5c and I want to download my old ring tones and alert tones!!!
