I use iTools program (exists for Mac and Windows) to copy my MP3 files to my iOS device without completely synchronizing my music library. No existing files will be deleted, just new files will be added.

This Apple KB article solves the issue for me: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT6202

The fantastic thing with iExplorer is that it not only transfers and imports your media data into iTunes but also imports the playlists. And you can access all data, even the preferences files from the apps. And you can make backups on your own on app basis if you like. :) Great software, fully worth the ~ 35 dollars.

I've used PhoneView a couple times and I love it. It would do this for you. http://www.ecamm.com/mac/phoneview/

iTunes can't, but some third-party App let you transfer music from iOS device. For example, iExplorer 3 app specializes in this and makes iTunes media transfers incredibly quick and easy. It has an Auto Transfer feature which will rebuild your entire iTunes library from any iDevice in a single, one-click transfer and include your playlists, play counts, ...

I had the exact same issue when setting up a new computer—frustrating. What's happening is that iTunes sees that the current songs on the iPhone are taking up a lot of space, but iTunes is unable to figure out that many of the songs that are already on the iPhone are the same ones that are in your iTunes. Instead of syncronizing it to make all the songs ...

I got this error just now. My Mac mini was connected to my LAN via WiFi and also via Ethernet. That was working ok, but I was trying to get the phone to sync via Wifi (still can't get that working). Anyway, I pulled out the Ethernet cable. Plugged the phone in via USB and when I clicked Sync I got the (-50) error you describe. My solution was to exit ...

Just a follow-up on this. I wouldn't say that I have fixed the problem, but closing and opening the Notes app seems to enable syncing again. It continues to stop syncing automatically, however. I am not sure if this happens after wakening the Mac up from sleep, which I do a lot. Nevertheless, restarting the app seems to work so far. Also, make sure that you ...

Setting up Google to sync calendars will sync only Google calendars. Your local calendar on your iPhone remains local and is only synced if you choose to do so through iCloud.

It sounds like you mean 2nd generation iPad vs 3rd generation iPad, both of those models do use the older 30 pin connector. 3rd generation isn't new tho so maybe you mean iPad MINI... the mini 2 and mini 3 both use the newer smaller lightning connector. If it does go from 30pin to lightning tho, apple does have 2 different style of adapters avaialble. ...

It's easy, try Coolmuster iPhone to PC transfer, we can use it to move iPhone music to PC in 2 simple steps, and you can also use it to move other things from iPhone to computer.

Essentially - you don't. iTunes is the master, the iDevice is the slave. That's the way the system is designed. It works on the assumption that you will always have plenty of room on your Mac to store data that there is no room for on the phone, so you can add it back to the phone at any time in future. I suppose it's legacy behaviour from before iCloud ...

You will need to connect the device over USB the first time before you can use iTunes Wi-Fi Sync. For installing an IPA on your iOS device, iTunes manifests can be used to install IPAs directly on the iOS device. Alternatively, the developer can distribute the app to you using TestFlight.

If you have installed a version of a product in the past, that is not supported anymore, iTunes should know that and allow you to later download that older version of the product. I have done this with 'Find my iPhone' and 'Find my Friends': Trying to install a fresh iPhone-4 with a new Apple-ID, it didn't let me install those apps because the minimum ...

I thought I would add that I found I could simply add a return to the end of each note in iPhone that was not showing up on my Mac and it automatically synced the note the the Mac. Not sure why it worked but it was easier than copy and pasting every note.

I had the same issue with syncing notes. The copy paste method worked perfectly I opened the iPhone note that I wanted to appear on my macbook, copied the note, went back into the iCloud note folder, opened a new blank note in the iCloud note folder, pasted the data (previously copied from iPhone note) into a new note. It appeared in the cloud note folder on ...

I was getting the error message that there were 2 items that could not be sync'd. For me it was ring tones. In the "Tones" window in iTunes the "all tones" button was selected (probably a default). There were 7 ring tones in iTunes that were checked but only 5 tomes physically on my iPhone. I selected "only checked tones" and then unchecked the 2 tones ...

It's a bit difficult to diagnose this with the info you've given but from experience I've found that you are able to reliably "force an sync" with any sort of iCloud data by going to System Preferences and signing out + signing back in (it'll warn you about removing iCloud data from the device, etc.) As said in the previous answer, make sure you are ...
