Problems with HP TouchSmart 300 and Itunes - not transferring to iphone 4s or the new ipad

Hi
I've got problems with trying to transfer music to my iphone 4s or new ipad with itunes on this computer.  It will only transfer some songs....and what it does transfer is not complete i.e. starts 10 seconds in etc.  It doesn't do this with our ipods, which are both new.  Music transfers fine onto them.  We never had this problem with our old acer laptop.
It also does this with photos, but I bought a camera connector for that problem.  This Touchsmart has always been a bit jittery with itunes, but still worked after for playing music music after launching task manager, and opening again.  This does not rememdy this issue.  I read a while back that people suggested completely removing itunes (and all it's components such as bonjour etc, but I'm not sure how to do this)and re-installing it all again.
I believe this is a HP issue with software compatability with itunes and the 4s and ipad.  If anyone could help - that'd be appreciated, as it's driving me mad!!
Thanks

Hello funcdoc:
         I just got back from speaking with my friend. He said that only mp3 files can be loaded into your Iphone. Yes you can use the windows media center as I mentioned above post in case Itunes software still isn't working for you. I asked him about that also. He will be here on Thursday some time after 3:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. To give you direction on how to load music mp3 from Itunes into your I phone as well. He is going to give you the links for downloading other music websites like you tube. He said you need this software as well. He is a casher was working to night it was to busy for him to write all this all down for you. He has college classes he goes during the day and works at night. He has been doing this since he was 11 years old. Like you he is in to his music.
       I hated it when he would use my computers because all the malware he use to put on my computers and the Itune always updateing pop up would always display. Then he would mess up my settings. This time my computer has software that can delete and fix up his mess he makes. So just relax for now if need be we can go live chat with any messengers you like to use Skype will allow you to view my computer screen. He is an expert using Apple's software.  You have already updated your computer software solution 25 has the one for fix USB and other ports issue you desribe in your second post . You have a fresh copy of Itunes installed so that covers every thing. If he isn't to busy in the store tomorrow I will see if he can write down some of the direction for you. He will be here for sure on Thursday for sure just for you.  Ok. Remember only mp3 music files can be uploaded unto I phones. frrw

  • 101 Problems with my iPod Touch and iTunes...Almost

    It really feels like I have 101 problems with my iPod touch and iTunes.
    For some time now my iPod Touch have been using alot of batterypower and the battery is often discharged very fast. It discharges alot faster now than when I brought the Touch.
    Also when I plug the iPod Touch to my computer it doesn't charge, it does the oposite of that, it's disharges and it does that ALOT faster than normal
    There is also a problem regarding connecting the iPod Touch to iTunes. It doesn't connect to iTunes directly after I have plugged it in. It feels really random and it lives it own life it seems like.
    If I accomplish to connect ut to iTunes it doesn't sync every single time. The computer / iPod Touch hangs and nothing happens. Soemtimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, like I said before - It feels really random!
    Now to a BBIIGG problem. A week ago my girlfriend changed my password on my iPod Touch. When she typed the password into the login screen, it failed, she had forgotten the password / she thought that she picked that password when she changed it. Anywho, I didn't panic becuase I knew that I could lock it up by iTunes.
    But, iTunes gives me a error while trying to restore the iPod Touch saying that there is no update avaiable and after that nothing happens. I tried to do the Sleep / Power + Home trick to set the iPod Touch into a recovery mode but iTunes gave me a unknown error.
    I tried to update iTunes from my version to the new 8.0 version but when I do so it gives me a error saying that iTunes.msi can not be found and it can't uninstall the previous version :S
    So, now I have a unusable iPod Touch, I can't do nothing with it.
    Like I said, It's really feels like I have 101 problems ;D.
    Lucky I have my old iPod so I can listen to Music :P

    Are you running windows xp or vista? I know the solution for vista but not for xp. My mate had the same problem but he has a vista.

    I have the iPad 2 16GB, bought it in August 2011, I worked perfectly but in mid-August 2012 I took her to the store because the microphone did not work reviewed and changed me, but to my surprise that the new iPad had the problem is disconnected WIFI signal I have to be glued to the router, and I did everything he says is supported by the Apple and all other pages and forums regarding this problem is not solved and always disconnects when connected always disconnects again!! passing will be settled as no longer factory warranty although it has neither the three months I renewed new, please help because the investment has been great and I can not use only as "a mirror" I'm waiting a true solution, thanks ....

    This does help me because I am pondering on wether to buy an airport extreme to solve my ipad 2 connection woes.  I have an extremely old router dLink 524....but I have NEVER had any problems with it at all ever.  My xbox connected great to it and netflix ran flawless through my xbox.....now I have an ipad2 and an apple tv and they are BOTH having horrible connection problems.  I have read most of the forums on how to fix it by changing the settings on my router but since mine is so old I couldn't do some of the suggested solutions.  So here I am debating on whether to spend all this $ on an airport extreme?  I am just hoping that if I go and purchase this, my connectivity issues problems will go away like yours did.  Just wondering if you have ATV as well and if the AE solved its problems?  I have read about AE solving ipad2 wifi problems, I'm just hoping it will solve my ATV as well.

    i have problem with Cellular data network it is not apearing in iphone setting so help me how to bring this option in iphone

    What brand/model USB drive? Is it bus or AC powered?
    On Mail...
    First Quit Mail, then I'd backup these two Mail folders, by right clicking on them in the Finder, then choose Archive/Compress.
    Users/YourUserName/Library/Mail
    Users/YourUserName/Library/Mail Downloads
    (Could be a different folder here if you chose such in Mail Prefs)
    Right click on that Mail folder, choose archive, you'll get everything in the folder, and the folder itself in a file called Mail.zip, move it to a safe place, same for the Mail Downloads folder... only the plist is separate.
    /Users/YourUserName/Library/Preferences/com.apple.mail.plist

  • My wife has bought an iPad from a friend. My wife has an iphone with an iCloud account. When trying to connect to iCloud from the new iPad it says her username and password are not authorised. Any help

    MMy wife had bought an iPad from a friend. My wife already has an iPhone, which is registered to iCloud. She cannot acces iCloud from the new iPad. It says her username and password is not authorised. What do we need to do.

    This could be a couple different things.
         The device is not authorized to the Apple ID.
             Continue setup for the ID on the device.
      There is an account issue
            Is she able to get signed in at
                   Appleid.apple.com
                       and manage the account
    Can she get signed in at

             How many devices are registered to that Apple ID?

  • Odd problem with iPod 5G 30G and iTunes 8...

    It freezes when I plug in my iPod.
    I've tried with my friend's iPod Nano (newest) and my iPod touch 8G and it works properly...
    But iTunes freezes when I connect my iPod 5G 30G on Windows Vista.
    Funny thing (annoying) is that it (my iPod) works properly in another laptop with Windows XP and iTunes 7...
    So it seems something is wrong with the last update... Because it used to work...
    Any solution to this...? Do I have to borrow my friend's laptop to change the music of my iPod or install something like Rockbox ...or even iTunes 7?
    Does it means I have to buy a new model to keep compatibilities with the software?
    Thanks in advance for the info.

    Nothing?
    Isn't this the support forum?
    I must be doing something wrong...
    Guess I'll go and ask the scene...
    Thanks anyway
    ... let me see... apple.com... support... yes... odd thing... :/

  • What is the deal with OS X Lion and iTunes not launching

    I installed OS X Lion and loved the new features. The second day I wanted to launch iTunes and got an error. I had to remove OS X Lion and re-install Snow Leopard so I can get iTunes to run.

    iTunes runs just fine on Lion.
    Since you've reinstalled Snow Leopard we can't help you diagnose your issue.

  • I´m having some problems with dates intervals. It´s not working well. I inserted the correct date between the right interval but the system refers to incorrect date? What shoul I do?

    Mensagem editada por: Mauricio Galletti
    It seens that there´s some problem with the specific date of 19/10/2014? Don´t know why? I just remove this date from the interval and the problem gone.
    What´s wrong with 19/10/2014?

    Hello Galdr,
    Welcome to the HP Forums.
    I see that after doing some updates, you've lost the use of switchable graphics in your Notebook. I will do my best to help you with this.
    You can try is to use the HP Recovery Manager. This will allow you to "recover" the Notebook and reinstall the original drivers. This document: Using Recovery Manager to Restore Software and Drivers (Windows 7), can assist you with that.
    Once the drivers are "reverted", then if you wish you can attempt updating.
    This first thing I will provide you in regards to updating is this document: Switchable Graphics on Notebooks Configured with Dual AMD GPUs. There is more general information than anything, but you may find it useful.
    When going to update you will want to use the website or the HP Support Assistant. These are the recommend ways to update. When using AMD's (or other OEM utilities) they will look for compatible drivers for the component, but not necessarily ones that work with your Notebook. What most likely happened, only one of the two drivers were actually updated.
    Here is a link to the newest driver provided by HP: AMD High-Definition (HD) Graphics Driver. Also, here's a link to using the HP Support Assistant: Using HP Support Assistant (Windows 7). (in case you wanted to learn more/use this method).
    I hope this is able to help you get back to "state 1", so that you may be able to update correctly and have full functionality of your switchable graphics again. Please let me know how this goes for you. Thank you for posting on the HP Forums.
    I worked on behalf of HP.

  • HT4557 My new Apple Mini IPad has a message box and is froze and will not let me click OK.  The message: iPad Not Backed Up; This IPad hasn't been backed up. Backups happen when this IPad is plugged in, locked, and connected to Wi-Fi.

    My new Mini IPad is frozen with a message (IPad Not Backed Up) and does not respond when I touch OK.  What must I do next?  I cannot find the correct ITunes page to sync IPad to Computer ITunes.

    Try this now.
    Reboot the iPad by holding down on the sleep and home buttons at the same time for about 10-15 seconds until the Apple Logo appears - ignore the red slider if it appears on the screen - let go of the buttons.

  • Permission problems with my Drobo 5N and iTunes library

    Hi I have my iTunes library located on my Drobo 5N. My problem is when I try to access it from my other Macs I get an error saying it is on a locked disk. I attempted to check permissions from finder nod the Drobo iTunes folder and it indicates owner unknown and no access for everyone else. There is no little lock at the bottom where I can go in and try to fix it.
    Does anyone have any advice?
    Thanks
    Herbert

    Ok, I have encountered this problem also.   Not only with iTunes librabry, but also with my iPhotos library.   I'm not certain what the cause is, yet here is how I have been able to resolve my problem:
    1.     Shutdown/quit all applications from all machines (including any mobile device) on the network that access files the drobo 5N.
    2.     Properly power down the drobo 5N as instructed by drobo instructions.
    3.     Property power down the router and then restart it again after a few seconds of waiting.
    4.     Once the router is fully up and running, check your wifi network connection to your PC or Mac first.
    5.     Then power up your drobo 5N.
    6.     Once the drobo 5N is fully powered up, try accessing your iTunes library file again from one machine.
    Please note: I recommend that you do not attempt to access the iTunes library file residing on the drobo from multiple machines at the same time.  I believe that you would need an "iTunes Server" for this capability to be available.  The drobo 5N does not offer an "iTunes Server" app at this time.
    Let me know how it goes.
