You mean all yoru CDs are in your iTunes library on another computer.
iTunes library is on your computer and contains music, movies, etc.
iTunes account is used to make iTunes purchases

You don't "unsync" it.
Copy the entire /Music/iTunes/ folder from old computer to /Music/ on new computer and yoru iPhone will sync fine with new computer.

  • Can i transfer music library?

    is there any way that i can move my music library to another computer without having to remove songs from itunes because i dont have enough space in the ipod?
      Windows XP  

    There are a few things you could do, from networking the two computers, using CDs or DVDs as already suggested or using an external hard drive to make the move. Have a look at this User Tip: Migrating iTunes for Windows to a new PC
    If you can network the computers there is also this one: Copying songs over a network to use with iTunes for Windows

  • I bought a new laptop and used Windows Easy Transfer cable and moved all files from one computer to another. I installed iTunes and found my iTunes music Library.  However, when I plug in my iPod it says it is already synced with another iTunes Library.

    I don't see anything in Help that shows when you already have transfered all the files over.  Why would it want to erase and sync when I already have all the music folder copied over?  I didn't have an issue when I had another technician copy from one laptop to another.  Home sharing is also on but not being recognized.

    I suspect you only migrated the media folder instead of the complete working library. Either review the transfer process and copy over the entire iTunes folder from your old profile's music folder or see Recovering your iTunes library from your iPod or iOS device.

    I assume you are talking about iTunes on your computer, if so, you will have to remove all Apple programs associated with iTunes:
    iTunes, QuickTime, Apple Software Update, Apple Mobile Device Support, Bonjour and Apple Application Support (iTunes 9 or later)
    Make sure everything that is by Apple is removed including Safari. You can sort by "Publisher", when you uninstall programs. Make sure you have at least one other web browser (like Firefox or Internet Explorer) before removing Safari. That way you can go back to the Apple web site and redownload iTunes later.
    Reboot the computer then reinstall iTunes. Everything should work normally.

    iPod touches or any iDevices from Apple sync only to one computer. If you sync to a different computer, all your music will be replace with the music from the new computer's iTunes. If the music were purchased from iTunes, you can re-download them again otherwise the music on iPod touch will be deleted. Do you have iTunes backup? 

  • Some how my bookmarks on my iphone got synced to my pc and i dont want that how can i reverse it

    Some how my bookmarks on my iphone got synced to my pc and i dont like that how can i reverse the sync or take them off my comp

    It cannot be reversed once initiated. However, if you also checked the "Notify me when found" option, if it comes online in order for it to erase, you may get notified of its location first.

    I second the whole iTunes folder approach.
    If for some reason you have split the media folder from the library files then the media folder needs to restored to the same path it used to have while the library files can be copied into the music folder of your new profile.
    If in dobut, backup up the entire Documents and Settings folder before wiping the infected drive, but be selective about what you restore as many viruses drop active components capable of reinfecting the compuer in the temp folders and internet caches. It is much easier to backup more than you need than to discover after the fact that you no longer have access to some vital project you'd been storing in a folder on the desktop.

  • What is the Proper Way to "Sync My Music & Apps to a New Computer Using ITunes"

    What is the Proper Way for Me to "Sync My Music, Pictures & Apps to a New Computer Using ITunes"?
    I had to buy a New Computer since my other one went out, but when I log into ITunes with the New Computer using My Apple ID "Nothing is there"...
    None of My Previously Purchased Music or Apps are in My ITunes Media Library; so, I any not sure how to Properly Proceed with Syncing?
    Any Help & Guidance would be Greatly Appreciated!!!
    Thanks,
    Don

    Sounds like something might be wrong there. Years ago I set up the playlists to sync to my iPhone and 'Everything' for my iPod and I've never needed to change or even check it since, ever.
    However, how and why are you 'restoring' the iPod? This is not something you should ever need to do. If you restore back to original settings, then I guess that would throw away your own settings, but as I said, there should be no need to keep doing that. Or at all in fact.

  • New music purchases on my new computer will not sync to ipod?

    How do I get new music purchases on my new computer to sync to my ipod?

    What exactly happens when you try to sync?
    Does iTunes see the iPod?
    Was the iPod previous synced to another iTunes library/computer?
    Have you successfully synced from this iTunes library/computer before?
    If so have you done anything like update iTunes on the computer since it last successfully synced?
    Do the songs play in iTunes?          
    Does any media now sync to the iPod?
    Do you have the right boxes checked to sync?

  • In itunes, when i plug my 16gb iphone in, it says i have 5.8gb of "other" filled on my phone, what is "other" and how do i delete it so i can put more music on

    In itunes, when i plug my 16gb iphone in, it says i have 5.8gb of "other" filled on my phone, what is "other" and how do i delete it so i can put more music on

      I know by the date of this thread that I'm probably too late to help you but I had the same problem and just figured out what the "other" really was. It is application archives.
         I'll explain it if you're curious, if not just skip to the next paragraph. When you sync your device and it is trying to update apps it doesn't want to lose the old app while its doing that. So it uploads an "application archive" zip file. Those files normally get deleted once the sync is over, but If that sync gets interupted you have all those zip files there taking up space.
         You don't have to restore your iOS device and lose all your contacts, messages, app data. All you have to do is use a iOS device file browser and delete some old partial apps from incompleted syncs.
         I use "DiskAid" or "iFunBox" but you can use any app that can change the files on your device. I'm going to tell you how to do it using DiskAid.
         First download and install DiskAid
         Once it's installled open it and plug in your device.
         Click on your iPhone/iPod/iPad then on:
              Storage, then
              Media, then
              Application Archives,
         Then just delete all thos zip files! (they will usually have weird name such as "com.NameOfTheCompanyWhoMadeTheApp.NameOfTheApp.zip" (Except it would have the name of the company and the app instead.
         It won't change anything else on your device. It's perfectly safe.
         I hope this helps you as much as it helped me!

  • If I move my music library to an external drive, am I going to loose my playlists

    Hi,
    I need to move my Music Library to an external hard drive.  Am I going to loose my playlists?

    This User Tip by Terence Devlin describes options how to back up iPhoto libraries,
                     iPhoto and File Management
    The simplest way is to copy the library to an external drive.
    And sure, after testing the copy, you can delete selected events from your original library, then would your backup be no longer the backup, but your only copy of the deleted events. In that case you should use two backups, and preferably on different drives.
    Also, do you know what to do, if I want to keep backing up newer, more recent photos I take into the same older library?
    iPhoto does not support the merging of libraries. You would have to export the photos from th events and import them into your archive library. Or buy iPhoto Library Manager, that supports merging of Libraries.
    Another way to keep your backup in sync with the original would be using clones of your disk as backup or TimeMachine.
