How to sync iTunes with iTunes ext HDD iMac?


I can't afford to buy the 256 GB MacBook Air, then I'm the one with only 128 GB.

When I launched my iTunes, I pressed down option and select the external HARD disk where I put all the songs.

Songs in iTunes external HDD has been copied from my iTunes on my iMac.

So, how can I synchronize my iTunes in my iMac with the iTunes on my external HARD drive?

Thank you


What do you mean "iTunes sync in my Mac?"  You say that you no longer use the library in your computer (iTunes' incidentally is the only application), what is there to sync (and once again 'sync' has a very specific meaning of transferring the elements to and from a mobile device)?

  • Project of restoring links on the other computer, with the ext hdd same source files

    I was working a project with all the source files for the project on an ext hdd. This machine in particular, then crashed and I have more access to it. data recovery after extensive (and expensive), I got the program from the old pc files and some of them include the first pro files. Is it possible to link these data, creation of a new pro, always the same machine using the ext hdd with the source files? Thank you

    That's the advantage of keeping your external media.

    Just open the project first on the new computer.  So you should not need to be reprinted media if the external drive has not changed its name from Volume and is saved as the same drive letter (PC).

    Worst case, when you open the project of the missing file dialog box will open.  Make sure to repeat others is checked and navigate to the folder / outside looking.

    Once reconnected, save the project and then...

    go and drop your auto save preferences to the external location, so you don't have to retrieve project files crashed in the future!

  • How to sync iTunes movies on an iPod Nano 7th Gen?

    Hi, I'm Sam.

    I have an iPod Nano 7th Gen (software: version 1.1.1)

    I have iTunes (software: worm 12.3.2) on a HP Pavilion 15 laptop with Windows 10.

    I can sync my iTunes library of songs (imported CDs and downloaded iTunes) on my iPod.


    I can't synchronize iTunes downloaded movies on my iPod.

    To try to get movies to sync my iPod I have:

    -In the main movie section of my iTunes (not in iPod movies or sections of the iTunes Store), I clicked on a movie and the quality of the video: on the downloaded movies, there are only two options (by default (HD 1080 p) and high definition (720 p)) while others bought but not downloaded movies are the first two options as well as two more [Standard (SD) and high definition (1080 p)].

    When I try to sync a movie downloaded to my iPod with one of the first two options of quality Video (by default (HD 1080 p) and high definition (720 p)) I get this message:

    'FILM' was not copied because video high quality SD is not compatible with the iPod "MY IPOD".

    -In preferences, store preferences. I checked the box that says 'download high-quality SD video '. Before deleting all of my library and the re - movies download.

    When you try to synchronize any re-downloaded movies, with video quality settings, I get the same message as shown above.

    -The only other thing I tried (which others have suggested) is to select the movie, and then click file - create a new Version - create iPod or iPhone version. Select the movie by clicking on it, then the steps or by clicking it and then pressing Alt and then following the steps.

    However when I tried to do I can not click "create iPod or iPhone version" because it is grayed out and cannot be clicked.

    If anyone has other ideas/improvements on ideas on how to get movies from iTunes on an iPod nano GEN 7 please let me know.

    If this can help all the movies I've tried are Star Wars Revenge of the Sith, Forrest Gump and Top Gun.

    You cannot use the "Create iPod or iPhone version" command if the movie (or TV show or music video) is a purchase on iTunes Store, because the video has DRM (copy protection), as required by the content producers.  That is why the command is grayed out.

    Try going to the screen purchased in iTunes (click bought along the right side of the main screen of iTunes Store).  On the screen that is purchased for films, in the lower right corner of the window, there is a check box for Download HD when available.  Uncheck the box and find movies.  If there is a cloud for movies to download, download it.  When only the HD version is currently stored on your computer, you should get the SD version.

    iTunes might as well of both HD and SD of a movie bought in his library at the same time.  They are not presented separately, but he will say 'HD - SD"next to the name of the movie in the library list, if it has both.  Most of the SD movies should load and play on an iPod nano.

  • How to sync iTunes podcasts on Windows 10?

    Hello, everyone.

    I recently upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10. In Windows 7 I could set up my Clip + automatically synchronize my iTunes podcasts when I plugged the Clip +. I did it via Control Panel | Material and audio | View devices and printers.

    Anyone working on a way to have a Clip + synchronize automatically whenever one connects the Clip + to Windows 10 computer via the USB cord?

    I can always find Panel | Material and audio | View hidden devices and printers. But I can't find a way to do the sync to behave as it did before (so far).

    I can also find Windows Media Player. But I can't do it (so far) find a way to do auto-sync. In particular, it does not appear to remember the folders to synchronize.

    Thanks a lot for any assistance.


    WMP usually communicates with the Sansa through MTP mode.  If parameters system/settings/USB Mode is automatic and the Sansa is WMP (10 or higher) on your computer, it goes in MTP mode.

    Sync Toy probably wants mode MSC, the standard USB connection, see the Sansa as two flash drives.

    You can change the modes in Settings/System Settings/USB Mode. But your computer will see a mode at the same time - that is to say, all of the files you sent by MTP mode will be invisible on your computer if you switch to MSC.

    It's a pain to make the transition, but if Sync Toy turns out to work better for you, you'd better get all the files you need copied off the Sansa, mode MSC and Syncing over to hide.  I think - but you should googled around - you can always use WMP in MSC mode.

  • How to sync Firefox with Android?

    I have some problems with Firefox sync on my laptop with my Android device. I followed the instructions on and everything worked fine until the last step. According to the article, the synchronization must be completed when the code is accepted, but instead, I get a log on screen for my sync account. When I hit the button "I have an account", I have to fill in my account, the password and the recovery key, but the problem is that I don't have this recovery key. According to, I should just go to the sync screen and click on 'Manage', but there is no such link. What should I do?

    Good news! After that I entered the code of 3 x 4, I was redirected to the synchronization configuration screen, as usual. I followed the instructions on (remember that I couldn't find my recovery key). Miraculously, it worked this time! My problem is finally resolved and everything works fine now! Thanks for all the @cor-el helps!

  • iPhone 6s doesn't sync wirelessly with iTunes

    I have a new iPhone running OS 9.2.1 6s.

    Is set upward wireless at the Apple store, restored from my previous iPhone 5 and me kept updated iOS and phone saved wireless, and had not annexed it with iTunes on my Mac, until today.

    I have the gasket with the USB cable into my iMac running the last El Capitan, iTunes 12.3.2

    The iPhone has shown in the section "My devices" in iTunes, but I immediately got a message "there is a new version of iOS for the iPhone (9.2.1). iTunes started download iOS 9.2.1 but I stopped, because the phone has already 9.2.1.

    I checked the preferences to allow the iPhone to sync wirelessly with iTunes, applied and then ejected from the iPhone.

    My iPhone is connected to wifi, but when I restarted iTunes it does not connect wireless - the wireless only showing in iTunes is my iPad.

    My questions are so

    (1) why only iTunes can only see my iPhone 6 is already running the latest version of the iOS software


    (2) why didn't it connects wireless when I set the preference to do?

    Thought I'd ask advice here before that I contacted Apple support.

    Thank you


    There is a different verson of 9.2.1 released by Apple to fix the error 'January 1, 1970.  It is only available through iTunes, not live.
