I think that the 4,372 photos are all of your photos, as opposed to just photos to be synced. In other words, around 500 photos of those photos have already been synced to your iPad.

For #1, one thing to remember is your iCloud account is different from your iTunes/App Store account. You should not lose any of your iCloud documents because that is stored in the iCloud account. Apple's support page describes the procedure here and you should be able to change it back if you like at a later point. But basically, when you change stores, ...

From near the bottom of Redeem and use iTunes Gift Cards and content codes. You can't redeem purchased gifts outside of the country of purchase. For example, an iTunes Gift purchased in France can't be redeemed in an iTunes Store outside of France. So based on that statement I'd say the answer to your question is no. However I'd contact Apple ...

I'm afraid I've got the same problem. I restarted the Imac yesterday. The close down took more than 3 minutes. This happend before. I forced the closing down by pressing the power button.

There is currently a defect in iTunes which is causing some albums to attain USER ratings (black stars) instead of ESTIMATED ratings (grey stars). When this happens, it causes the album's individual tracks to have ESTIMATED ratings (grey stars), which messes up your smart playlists.

Found a tedious solution on the Internet: Add all downloaded episodes to the new iTunes by copying the iTunes library and then select from the File menu "Add files to library". Go into each podcast's folder and select all files to add them to iTunes. Then iTunes will create the podcast with all these episodes, but you then have to subscribe to it again using ...

Not sure about the legality of this, but there exist ways to transfer non-purchased songs from iPhone to iTunes. If you are on Mac, try Senuti (iTunes spelled backwards, mind the pun). If you are on Windows, try CopyTrans.

You can move the folder to another drive, then use a symbolic link back to the original location, so iTunes can still find it. A symbolic link is a bit like a shortcut or alias, that the system can use to target a file or folder in another location. Because of the rather arcane method you'd nee to employ in Terminal to generate them, I've always used a ...

I was able to free a ton of space by backing up my phone, performing a full reset ("Erase All Content and Settings"), and restoring the backup. This shrunk the discrepancy, but didn't completely eliminate it.

This is a bug introduced in iTunes 12.2 at the end of June. It appears that iTunes has done some sort of averaging of track ratings and written them as album ratings overwriting the original per-track ratings. I've seen this issue with my library of approximately 100,000 tracks and have filed a bug report with Apple in Radar. Removing the album rating data ...

This script will copy the tracks of a playing Genius Mix playlist to a new "dumb" (regular) playlist, which, for example, can be copied/sync'd to older iPods that do not accommodate Genius Mixes. You can subsequently copy the contents of additional Genius Mix playlists to the new playlist, refill it, or create more. (Each Genius Mix playlist only contains ...

Turning off Sync iPhoto will remove any iPhoto images you put into your Photos Library on your phone, but will keep the images on your Mac.

Try Image Capture. In the bottom left is (maybe just a small arrow in a box that expands to) a dropdown titled "Connecting this iPhone opens:". Select "No application." This should disable iTunes, iPhoto, Photos, etc.

You can have multiple accounts, you just have to log in and out to switch between them.

Swipe close your AppStore app, then go into it again. Now you can download apps from your India account.

Recovery mode may not be 'strong' enough to bypass the accident and bring it back. Can't you put it into DFU mode instead to get it back to normal? Link for this: https://www.theiphonewiki.com/wiki/DFU_Mode

Yes, stop using iTunes. Use a separate video program to watch the files and store them in your own folders.

a very unix answer by madmax1 - he is suggesting that you force all file names to lower case on your source disk, then copy .. but his command will fail if both files are in the same folder .. if in different folders on the source disc, no problem. But then, if you copy both files from diff folders on the NAS to the same folder on the destination disk the ...

You can do this in bash to identify which files and folders are problematic: find <path-to-remote-library> | tr A-Z a-z | sort | uniq -d This will output all lower case files and folders that have a duplicate with upper case letters.

Seems not. Best I can find it to just grab the column header & drag it as far to the right as it will go. At least it will stay there.

I reset my iPhone and recover the backup data. My all installed apps and data are seemingly maintained well, but its storage usage became changed: about 7 GB of new free space came out. Also, it’s reported in the same way by both iTunes and iOS settings. I’m still not aware of the cause, but my problem was anyway solved.

I have just experienced the same thing and found that it looks like iTunes Match might have just been renamed and the settings moved. Note for future readers, I am using iTunes version 12.2.2.25 (64 bit) on Windows 10. Make sure you are logged in to the iTunes Store and also make sure your computer is authorized (see the Store menu item), and then try ...

I know this is an old question, but it comes up pretty high on search results for this topic. Most of the time, iTunes initiates a secondary backup prior to restoring a backup (presumably for situations just like the question presents.) If you perform an accidental restore: Go to the iTunes preferences from the menu. On Mac, Preferences is in the iTunes ...

If it's working now, it sounds like a software bug. I'd go ahead and update it iOS 6.1.6, the latest version that the 4th Gen iPod Touch supports.

I just had this same issue, with a 3GB discrepancy between what iTunes and my iPhone were showing as free space. After looking through "Manage Storage" I realized that iTunes doesn't see the space taken up by downloading music for offline listening through apps like Spotify, but your iPhone does. The numbers matched almost perfectly. Hope that helps.

What you're asking, technically, can be done however not automatically. In other words you'd have to add back the songs to the Library and then manually edit the "iTunes Music Library.xml" file to restore the non-encapsulated meta data. I'd first manually restore the hierarchal folder structure as needed, that's missing, into the existing ...

So I found that if I change the media type before iTunes "processes" the file I'm able to set it as podcast. After it's already been processed I'm not able to do it. So I just deleted my file from iTunes, re-added it, and was able to edit the media type.

Make sure you log out of the store after you've used it. Go to Store > Log Out and this should sort the problem.

I was also having trouble with getting rid of the normal Rating hollow stars, as opposed to the Album Rating stars (which I didn't even know they existed). What finally worked for me was to show the Album Rating as an option on the column, then manually delete them off the ones that were showing on the Rating column as hollow stars, and it worked!, I just ...

When iTunes updated, whether automatically or under your permission, it replaced its data which contained information on getting your music. None of the music that you have downloaded via iTunes, or even added into iTunes from a CD won't appear. What only appears is links to stream anything that has been purchased from iTunes, even though it may still exist ...

Your iOS device only syncs with 1 computer, if you gonna sync on a new computer, your music on your iOS device will be replaced with what's in your iTunes Library on computer. You can't sync FROM your iOS device to computer, because of copyright reasons, eg. I buy music and sync them for all my friends' computers. That's a no-no! :P

The easiest way would be to take a screenshot of the image. This is accomplished by pressing Cmd-Shift-4 and selecting the outline of the rectangle that you want to capture with the mouse.

If anyone else needs something like this I wrote a quick piece of code using Qt 5.4 and taglib 1.14.0 that reads the iTunes database and writes the play count and rating into each mp3 file. You'll have to build it yourself or download the binary; it seems to work for me: https://github.com/carlonluca/ITunesEmbed. Backup your library before using it.
