I was also experiencing this issue. I had turned off all the auto downloads in iTunes. Then, in System Preferences, I "delete"d iTunes Helper - which did not delete anything and may not have had any effect. I discovered later that it was when I turned on/connected Bluetooth headphones that iTunes opened without any notice in the background. I haven't found ...

I haven't tried the much better sounding answer by @Tesujin. I'm certain his is much faster than what I did do. This "solution" worked for me. It also consumes lots of disk space. However, as an added "benefit," it found several files which were overlooked... Click iTunes > Preferences... Click the Advanced tab. Change the iTunes Media Folder location, ...

Deleting iPod Photo Cache fixed the stuck sync for me. Note this did break the photo-syncing link between iTunes and my devices: I had to reenable Sync Photos for them, and confirm I wanted to replace the existing photo library on the device. Apple bless removing the folder: http://support.apple.com/en-us/HT203156

Reset the iTunes Library Open the iTunes music folder in Finder ( it’s in your home folder / Music / iTunes) and drag iTunes Music Library.xml and iTunes Library.itl out on the desktop. This will reset iTunes next time you start it, but don’t start it yet. We’ll be working on the xml file, while the itl file is just there for backup. Change the location of ...

"It told me to "save the recovery key in a safe place like your wallet" so I just took that suggestion." It also said "You should consider printing more than one copy, so that you can keep your key in more than one place." It also encouraged you to register more than one phone number that can receive SMS messages and made you tick that you understood what ...

In Xcode, browse your files. Under Resources, remove reference to empty.cpp. This file has the following content: // an empty file to have the compiler include C++ standard libraries. Which causes the error. I believe it's an unnecessary cordova file.

Podcasts can be synced to your iPhone when connected to iTunes. These will then be available in the Podcasts app on your phone. When you have your iPhone connected to iTunes view your device page in iTunes. Then click on Podcasts and from here you can manage your podcasts on your phone. I am assuming that you are using iTunes and have an iPhone, you didnt ...

It isn't exactly that you can delete the tracks once they are in iTunes: it's that iTunes' default configuration leaves your original file where it was and makes a new copy in the iTunes music folder. So the first thing to do is determine whether or not this is how your iTunes is configured - whether or not you really have duplicates of the files. In iTunes, ...

As it says in the message Try rebuilding the app with the latest Xcode version.

In the latest version of iTunes, just click this button. This is a facetious answer. Actually it cannot be done, as evidenced by numerous forums on Apple with no solution to this common pain point: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3784727 Apple uses this pain point to force users to upgrade to newer phones and laptops with more storage and/or give ...

Yes- It works on Lion and Yosemite , so I see not reason why it should not work on the OS versions in between those two. The OS requirement can be found here.

The voice memos do not appear under "voice memos" playlist as expected; instead, they appeared when I tried: Click My Device > Music Scroll down the list of individual audio files/songs and voila, there were my memos mixed in with the others. For some unknown reason, the voice memos did not end up in "Voice Memos" playlist automatically; but they can be ...

One thing I can think of that might help is to Open Console.app and filter (upper right corner) for "iTunes". Another thought: Is there an iDevice that is wifi syncing periodically on the same network? Not sure how to test that other than turning off wifi.

I just got my new phone and wanted to sync to the backup of my old phone. The problem was with the apps. I deleted the foreign country's apps that were automatically put on the phone by the service provider (that I was never going to use anyway) and this solved my problem.

You can't recover from an iPhone backup, but there is other way. You can check your apps directory within you iTunes Media Folder Location (under iTunes → Preferences → Advanced). This will tell you where your iTunes are located (example: /Users/username/Music). If you go to /Users/username/Music/iTunes/Mobile Applications you can find that this is the ...

This can happen with many other things on mac, such as your storage breakdown. The simple fix is to restart your mac and open iTunes back up again. Sometimes, macs need to "catch up". Sources: Apple store worker

You can browse any store without an account. If you scroll to the bottom of the iTunes Store home page, there is a link for Change Country. But without an account, you won't be able to purchase anything. See jherran's answer about options for obtaining an account.

The easiest way to to stream it via AirPlay. You could also use a cable to hook up your TV, or stream it from an iDevice. You could also put in on a supported video stream site (like YouTube), and play it from the Apple TV's app. There are more ways then I'm able to list in the answer, so explore!

It depends on the country you will plan to open the account on. For example, if you want to open an account on US or UK, you could select None as payment method. Payment methods you can use in the iTunes Store, Mac App Store, App Store, and iBooks Store, same website for UK. If you want to open in in Spain, you don't have this option. ¿Qué métodos de pago ...

I just ran the standard disk utility and restored permissions on the tome which contained my iTunes library. That took about a minute and fixed the problem for me.

Select a song from the album, then press Command+I to view/edit the song's metadata. There is a field in there called "Album Artist". Edit all the songs so that they have the same album artist and they will show up as one album.

I've had the same issues of purchased songs not showing up on all devices and being "greyed-out" in the iTunes store. I found that for some reason the purchases were hidden and I think I've corrected that. Go to your Account Info. Scroll down to see if any of your purchases are "hidden." I found that over 100 albums had been hidden and correcting it was ...

I found this software. There is a demo version. Since the software does more than unfreeze phones, I'm hopeful it will unfreeze my iPad in the demo version.

This worked for me: Make a static playlist called “All Live Files” and copy your entire library into it. Make a smart playlist called “Missing Files” with the rules set as ‘Playlist’ ‘is’ ‘Music’ and another rule set as ‘Playlist’ ‘is not’ ‘All Live Files’ The broken songs will not transfer and “Missing Files” will contain all those broken songs. ...

Go on your iPod to SETTINGS > SAFARI > FRAUD WARNING and if it's turned on, turn it off. Then go to ADVANCED > WEBSITE DATA click edit, scroll to the bottom and click remove all website data and you are ready to go.

I use Photo Transfer app http://www.phototransferapp.com to transfer photos and videos between my iDevices and my Mac, though I admit I haven't tried to transfer as large a file as you need to do. It supports lots of formats and preserves the metadata, too. It uses WiFi or Bluetooth.

The stream you are listening to does not provide artist/title information. I confirmed this by playing the stream in VLC. VLC (and iTunes) both show artist/title information when playing a stream from CRIK FM, for example.

you should shift+push the restore button, then choose the .ipsw file you want to download and it should download. (note - if you are trying to jailbreak your iPod, it might work, but not all the times)

You can just drag and drop the .ipa from your Mobile Applications folder to the Applications page listed for your device in iTunes, provided you keep the .ipas that iTunes now auto-Trashes. Check your Time Machine backup, if you don't make a habit of removing these from the Trash. However, there is a checkbox within the iTunes device settings that ...

"This afternoon I received an email with an audio attachment, which I played." Did you double-click it, or Open, which would open it in iTunes? Once you've set iTunes going it will then follow its pre-set behaviour, which includes playing the following song. If you don't want to bother iTunes at all with the audio file, you can simply select it & tap ...

All the answers so far seem to lead to some 35 dollar purchase - for what is all probably the same software in different wrappers.... It can be done for free, quite simply & easily.

That recently happened to me but the way I fixed it. I went on Settings> General> Usage> [The app you want] then delete app. Then go onto the home screen and the app should be just a blank white icon with lines going across it. Hold onto it and you should be able to delete it by tapping onto the 'x' button. There you have it! You could reinstall it to use it ...

If you have the music on your computer, connect to iTunes and sync again. If this appears, you should download all music from iCloud. Good Luck!

You should try the following: If you have it, do try with iMovie. (Menu “File” -> “Import Media…”) Try AirDrop. You have to be on iOS 8 and Mac OS X Yosemite for AirDrop to work between an iPhone and a Mac though. If you can successfully make a backup of your iPhone using iTunes, I can walk you through the retrieving of the video from the iTunes backup. If ...

You might want to try iExplorer. Because it can directly access your iPhone as a disk device, iExplorer may be able to move the movie file to your Mac without any of the problems associated with other apps. iExplorer can also open and read iTunes backups, which may be another way to extract the movie. My wife inadvertently wiped her iPhone a few months ago, ...

Try a peer-to-peer file transfer service to move the video directly from your phone to computer, like BitTorrent Sync. This would be faster then using a cloud solution like uploading to Dropbox or YouTube and then downloading it again. It's very simple to use too, just download the BitTorrent Sync app on your phone and Mac, turn on the Camera Roll backup ...

I find Hazel to be a very useful app for this and many other tasks. It works similarly to Folder Actions, only it has more flexibility and actions, uses less resource, and it actually works. On Mac1, I assigned the Sync action to each of the iTunes folders I want to keep in sync. (I advise against syncing the Applications folder. It requires user ...
