I just got an iphone 4 and downloaded the most recent version of itunes onto my computer because i had a version that was too old. It told me i needed to convert the songs to create an AAC version of my library in order to add them onto my iphone, which i had not synced because i didnt want to lose the existing music. When i converted the files, they copied to the phone, but are greyed out and wont let me play them, could somebody please help?
Try playing the greyed out songs directly on your iPhone. If you cannot do that, do the following.
This should resolve the issue.
I hope anyway who has this 'kind' of problem, greyed out songs. And they like to delete them forever. then continue reading
I don't want to advertise programs but I think it solves it quickly , and yes it really did work for me. I was really fed up using itunes and having those unsynced music. Programm is called 'Copytransmanager. (google it up, read reviews and you'll see!)
With this programm i easily deleted all the greyed out songs, unlike using itunes which I stucked on over 3 weeks. Of course there are plenty other programms to do this, but I read a lot on other forums etc people got this problem. So I'm just post here quickly to help!
I think once you've downloaded it, it's easy to find out how it works. (simple design, though it's not as clear as itunes.
Greetings and I hope a few could use this information. Once again, I do not like to promote/advertise other programs but sync/resync doesn't seem to solve for some.
*Also if you like to keep those 'greyed' tracks, they: make a backup somewhere and you can put them back on with itunes or just CopyTrans again.
