I called Apple support, and they almost immediately established there was an error in the setup of my accounts. They fixed this, and everything works well.

I had the same problem. My new iPhone SE won't sync with my old 2009 Macbook and I get the same message to download the new iTunes although I already downloaded it. Instead of having to buy a new Macbook, I subscribed to iTunes Match for $30 per year. It uploads all music, even the music that wasn't bought from iTunes into a cloud. My new phone can now ...

Press the three dots right next to the name when you select the Podcast row. Select (-) Delete. That will delete the row. Then on the main Podcast, right-click and select "Refresh podcast". The row will re-appear with a little cloud next to it. If the publisher has deleted the Podcast from their library, I guess you cannot recover it. Hope that helps.

I had the same problem. You have to go into your device menu in iTunes (not the library page showing what you've got.) Then click on Podcasts on the left. Then in the big page on the right you should select automatically sync podcasts, but then the big issue is scroll way down on that page and you have to actually tick the box on the playlists you want to ...

Easy to EDIT playlist and put in order downloaded or whatever. Click DONE and will put in new order. My problem is I have to do this every time I open iTunes. I agree it won't "stay" in the order set. Especially a problem for downloaded books. Need to make sure each playlist is in correct order before you sync.

In answer to whether a 64-bit installation shows up, listed as 32-bit in the Task Manager, per https://discussions.apple.com/message/18034729#18034729: That's normal on a 64-bit version of iTunes. (It's a mix of 32-bit and 64-bit componentry, and the itunes.exe is 32-bit.) Is your iPodservice.exe running as 64-bit? If so, and your itunes version is 9.x or ...

Assuming there is nothing wrong with your setup and that there isn't anything causing additional delays to your sync, you might want to consider two things that impact the iTunes sync speed: Encoding of audio files as they get loaded on to your iDevice. Speed of USB 2.0 interface @ 480Mbit/sec. The first one would only apply if you are syncing new audio ...

And for you humans out there that don't write code... This happens with movies as well. Ex. I play Lord of the Rings, I get The Martian. Has gotten buggier and buggier since (not too soon) Tim Cook took over. So now we pay Apple prices for Windows performance. Thanks Obama...I digress. Quick trick works for me. Using the example above, intentionally ...

As I wasnt here for a longer period of time, here is what did I do to solve this: I finally managed to boot the phone. Here is what I did. After I've already tried on another computer, a customer brought me a desktop PC (before I had 2 laptops). I installed Win 8.1, previous laptops have win 10. So from this point of view, I gained hope. A fresh ...

Maybe this is a bug or feature or a sign of “things to come” (i.e.: Apple no longer caring about locally stored and downloaded music) but the option to “Get Album Artwork” is now hidden in the menu area, “File -> Library -> Get Album Artwork.” But it gets weirder—which is why this is unclear if this is a bug or a feature—but this quirk where “Get Album ...

It sounds like Winamp has claimed podcast/RSS feeds, rss://, on your computer. This means when an podcast/RSS feed is clicked, Winamp is launched rather than iTunes. The BBC's Podcast help suggests copying and pasting the podcast link directly into iTunes: Subscribing using iOS, Android or Window Select your operating system. Once you have ...

I'm pretty sure sure that any time one of your devices is plugged into iTunes it's going to update the play counts regardless of whether or not you have "manually manage music and videos" turned on. More than likely this is because the metadata is completely separate from the fact that you are manually managing the syncing of songs to and from devices. I'm ...

In the sidebar at the top you have the Podcasts option (just above the Stations one you have just selected) which seems to do what you want - you will see a list of all of your podcasts in the middle column. Then you can switch between unplayed/feed tabs in the right column to see all episodes or just the unplayed ones. Depending on the defaults the view ...

You can: Send your partner the music files online (such as email) Burn the files to a CD and transfer it to the other computer Copy it to a thumb-drive and transfer it to the other computer iTunes should automatically open the music files.

The only way I could resolve this was to do a complete reinstall. I restored all data from my Time Machine backup using Migration Assistant, so I'm assuming an archive and install would work as well.

In earlier versions of iTunes, "repeat" and "shuffle" were associated with playlists. With iTunes 12 they are global flags and seem to be toggled by menu clicks; there's no direct property to manipulate. You can control repeat from Applescript thus: tell application "System Events" tell application process "iTunes" tell menu 1 of menu item "Repeat" ...

If it auto shutdown too often and require restore everytime like that then you should consider the phone is too old. Hardware especially its memory start malfunctioning. As end user, there is nothing you can do, sorry :( But repair services does, hehe :D

Welcome to Ask Different! In iTunes, go to the upper left corner, and find the bar that shows icons for things such as Music, Movies, etc. Click the button with the three dots, and you should see Apps. From there, you'll see a button that says "Updates." Click that, then Update All Apps. For more information, look here.

More than likely, your Mac synced with your iPad and got data from iCloud. Go to Settings -> iCloud, and see if Mail is turned on. If so, and you do not want these to sync together, turn it off. Then, you can simply delete the accounts from the Mail app on your Mac. In regard to your question about other "surprises," while you're in Settings on your iPad, ...

I may have found an answer. Navigate to iTunes and on the top menu items navigate to the STORE tab. From there sign out of iTunes, and then log in again. I restarted Itunes just to double check and everything looks good. I haven't been prompted by the annoying message!

To use Family Sharing, you need to have the same Apple ID on both iCloud and iTunes. It looks to me like you'll need to decide which Apple ID's your family wants to use and stick with that. On a side note, I don't understand why you'd want to have seperate ID's for each service. I'm sure you have a good reason but I would strongly recommend using only 1 ...

JUST found the solution to my nearly year long battle with iTunes and the: You are not authorized. You're already authorized issue. Just adding this to spread the word that Ctrl +b -> Edit -> Preferences -> Advanced -> Reset Cache worked for me. Every time iTunes started it thought it was freshly installed and prompted me to go through the tour, set the ...

The conversion & the discard of the old mp3 will have to be done in 2 steps, so you need to make sure you've enough disk space to temporarily store double the amount of space the mp3s currently take up. If not, you'll have to do the conversion/discard in small batches, one album at a time. Start in iTunes Prefs > General > Import Settings... Set to AAC ...

As far as I know, iTunes doesn't support synced lyrics for music (they do for video.) If, however, you do want to import simply the raw lyrics, you could reformat the .lrc as plain lyrical text then add it under the "Lyrics" section of any given song. It might be possible to script it as well. First, let's understand the .lrc file format. In essence, it's ...

What you need is an audio loopback. Basically, what it does is it takes the output from one device and "loops it back" to the input of another device. You're in luck. There's an App that does that and coincidentally, it's called "Loopback." Macworld has a good article on it and apparently, it's rated quite high.

I feel Apple has some corporate greed issues with their Family Sharing feature that they designed. The system locks your credit card in, you can't remove it, which negatively impacts families budgets. I will detail below. First let me answer your questions: In your first question, the latter part is true: purchases by person X will only be available to ...

That's a good solution for what you are trying to do. To answer you actual question, you can ctrl-click (or right-click) on the song and select "Show Playlists" and it should show you the playlists the song is on.

There is no way to automate this functionality in iTunes today. To do so, the system would need to know how many songs were in each album and that isn't immediately available. Plus, what if you have an album with twelve songs and you only have eleven, but you still want it in the list. Or what about singles that have only one or two songs. Are these ...

Finally, I know we need the enterprise account for in house distributions. Alternate solutions are using Using third party's solution, I used https://www.diawi.com/. It works perfect. Using your apple developer account, add your devices' UDID number and used development team profile to install. Only 100 devices are allowed. Good luck!

I had this problem for a while, figured out how to fix it, i created a playlist on my iphone, when i go to drag songs into my ipod i drag them into the playlist which throws them onto the phone and the playlist (not a big deal) and boom, every song I re-tried and every single one is now on my iphone. Hopefully this works for everyone else.

Sync it with ITunes (if it isnt already) and sign in to itunes on your mac and it should (may take a minute or two) sync up.

Sounds like the digitizer (the part that recognizes your touches) is also broken. My experience with Apple store is they will try to replace your screen first (at a cost).

I had just this problem myself, i loaded an compilation and it dumped the songs outside of the album. It is really easy in itunes.

If you click the album alome you can alter its tags but not touch the songs in ...

So I rebuilt my entire iTunes library only to discover the problem was that I'd told iTunes to sort by year. Doh. Quite annoying because I still want my programs to be listed by year... but not year by season. Hmm.

Non-purchased music files [CD rips etc] are on your computer [right now, the wrong computer], which syncs to the phone. Going back the other way - iPhone to iTunes - requires a 3rd party app, iTunes will not do it. This is ostensibly to at least slow down the illegal sharing of music, if not prevent it entirely. If you Google, you will find a million ...
