IPad will not sync with iTunes on my laptop. Synchronization in iPpod settings will not work

MY iPad will not sync with iTunes on my laptop, the sync on my iPad button will not work. I have the latest updates on both.

I guess you mean that the sync button in iTunes, not on the iPad, will not work. If you are sure you have the latest version of iTunes and iOS (your profile shows 8.1) try quitting iTunes on the computer, restart the computer and force restart your iPad

No data is lost during this procedure. Hold on the sleep and home buttons at the same time for about 10 seconds until the Apple logo appears on the screen.

  • iPhone not syncing with itunes


    I have a problem with my iPhone 6 do not sync with iTunes. I tried many fixes nothing works.

    When connecting my iPhone to my laptop via the USB port, it will load. But iTunes won't recognize the device. I got around this before creating a separate playlist (access by holding SHIFT when opening iTunes), as my wife and I both use the same laptop computer for iTunes. But this no longer works and the laptop does not recognize the iPhone on any playlists. I tried the following:

    -Change the USB port

    -change the usb cable

    -reset the two devices (hard reset on iPhone)

    -allowing the radiation and authorizing on itunes

    -J' chose to allow the laptop to access the data and photos on the iPhone

    Someone at - it ideas? I am at a total loss after spending 45 minutes on this last night.

    Thanks in advance

  • Once I update my phone to iOS9 will always sync with iTunes on my iMac with OS 10.7.5?

    Hello, my name is Catherine and I have a few questions. First of all, where I am and where I want to go:

    I have an iMac end of 2006 with OS X Lion installed, which is the most recent this computer can manage, if I understand correctly.

    My iPhone is a 4S which currently still holds iOS6 (6.1.3) installed. I want to upgrade to iOS9.

    Now the questions:

    The iPhone 4S is compatible with iOS9? If so, can upgrade directly to iOS9, or do I need to step it up?

    Once it is upgraded to iOS9 will always sync with iTunes on my old iMac?

    Any advice on this process are appreciated.

    Thank you for taking the time to read and respond to my request.


    Side note: it was strangely difficult to determine which community/category for this post, so if this is not the right pair, pointing me in the right direction would be more useful. Thank you!

    You need at least OS X 10.8.5 (not 10.7.5) or later version to use iTunes 12.3 which will supported iOS 9.


    Yes, the iPhone 4S turn iOS 9 (but the iPhone 4 does not work).

    It syncs with your old Mac?  It depends how old.  The Mac must be running at least OS X 10.8.5 and hopefully will last OS X 10.11.1 (current version).

    You can update your Mac directly - if you can update the Mac at all.  If you can update depends on the age and model.

  • iPod Classic will not sync with iTunes

    I have a 30 GB iPod Classic model PA002LL. After the recent update, I can no longer sync my iPod with iTunes on Windows. It's not to recognize that the iPod is connect. I have already uninstalled iTunes and reinstalled to see if that could fix the problem, but I had no luck with that. However, the computer recognizes it because it will charge the unit.

    What should I do so that it can synchronize? Thank you!

    What antivirus software do you use? Norton does not play nice with iTunes at the moment for some.


  • 5 Gen iPod will not sync with itunes 12 in 10.11.2


    I had a timing problem, where the my iPod Gen 5 has not been recognized under Yosemite anymore. Upgrade to El Capitan - all worked ok until the first OS / X update for 10.11. Now, iTunes as the iPod is not recognized.

    I've tried resets and hard disk mode - nothing has worked.

    To work around this situation, I ended up installing iTunes on a virtual 10 Windows on the same Mac computer. 10 Windows VM detects the iPod correctly and I am able to sync after that I added all the music and books audio to iTunes for Windows library.

    But, I want to turn on my Mac and have the Mac with iTunes for Mac OS sync my iPod. He worked for many years without problems.

    So, I want to come back under Mac OS, re-formatting, and sync as usual.

    Anyone have any idea why the rMAc fo iTunes is not recognizing iPod, iTunes for Windows works?

    iPod classic, OS X El Capitan (10.11.2), iPod Gen 5

    Information module,

    the system log shows that these entries:

    10.12.15 15:32:38, 701 SystemUIServer [812]: try to set a time of iPods, if I don't have any client user.

    10.12.15 15:32:41, SystemUIServer 605 [812]: try to set a time of iPods, if I don't have any client user.

    Bus USB recognizes the iPod correctly and Parallels virtual machine also. The instance of iTunes in the Windows virtual machine recognizes everything is fine.

    Just iTunes under native Mac OS / X 10.11.2 is not!

  • iBooks do not sync with iTunes

    So a few days, my books have disappeared from my iTunes. I can still see everything in iBooks on my computer, but iTunes does not recognize them. Also iBooks since my computer is not synchronized with my iphone and ipad, and for now, the only way to read something is if I download on icloud drive and download it to the device.

    Also in iTunes - there is no "BOOKS" tab, it appears only when I connect a device, it's when I see that the books are not in iTunes and I can't transfer on devices. Is there a way to make my books from iBooks, appear in iTunes?

    I am running:

    OS X El Capitan - version 10.11.4

    iBooks - version 1.5

    iTunes - version 12.3

    Thank you!

    Hi noti4kam,

    The iBooks app is now control on your iOS devices and Mac books.  The resources below will explain how download or synchronize books:

    IBooks of synchronization between your Mac and your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch

    There are books that you buy from the iBook Store automatically on all your devices iOS and Mac.

    The app iBooks on your computer works like iBooks on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.

    If you buy a book on your Mac or your iOS device, it is automatically available via iTunes in the cloud on all iOS devices and all your Mac computers. You can also synchronize your bookmarks, notes and collections in all of your devices.

    Download books on your device

    Items purchased from other devices or Mac may appear in your library with a cloud icon in the upper right corner. This shows that the item is available for download on iCloud, but does not appear on your Mac or iOS device.

    To download the agenda and begin viewing, tap on the book you want to read. The book will download and open after a few moments, depending on your connection speed.

    If you do not see all your items purchased in iBooks, check your settings.

    See your purchased books

    On your Mac

    • Click sort by in the upper right corner of iBooks.
    • Click on "view iCloud books" from the bottom of the drop-down list.

    Sync ePub, iBooks author books and PDFs with iBooks and iCloud

    The first time you open iBooks once you upgrade to iOS 9.3 or OS X 10.11.4, you will be prompted to use iCloud. If you do not see the command prompt, you may need to Configure iCloud Drive.

    You can use iCloud Drive to synchronize the ePub, iBooks, iBooks author books and PDF files so that you can access it on all your devices. Once you turn on iCloud by car, all the files download automatically to iCloud *. EPub, iBooks author book or PDF files that you add to your iBooks library later also automatically download on iCloud *.

    Books purchased on the iBook Store is not stored in iCloud by car, but you can redownload them. Because they are not stored in iCloud drive, they do not count against storage iCloud. Books and sample books don't sync with iCloud drive.

    Take care

  • If I can restore iphone and data sync with iTunes to help uncertified lightning cable?

    Hello guys and girls... I was just curious to know if it is ok if I sync data and restore ios using non certified lightning cable which means I have a Chinese... itunes restores the iphone to ios 9.3.1 perfectly and allows you to synchronize all the music and videos files without saying errors... but is it ok for my iphone? It could damage my iphone or will I get ios works in my camera? My iphone gets too hot during loading and the use of the wifi too... sometimes average 2 times he said cable not taken in charge, but during the restoration and synchronization please help me... im confused... tq for playback

    Hi, I would not recommend using no real cables on Apple devices because they can cause problems. You get also the question of the products not authorized to appear on the screen which can be very annoying and it is because he has not got the necessary cable chip that its not true. The original cable is a little more expensive than the no real but its worth the investment that you don't buy new cables every few weeks. It will work with ITunes and transfer of data, but I wouldn't mind keen charging my iPhone/iPad with a as it is possible that they may cause damage. It's just not worth the risk.

  • IPod No. Longer syncing with iTunes


    I briefly tried Windows 10.  Did not like after that various things were not compatible with it (as my external hard drive) I did a clean reinstall of Windows 7, which naturally erased my iTunes library.  Everything was just about imported CDs and single tracks purchased outside of iTunes so can all be delivered on.

    I got a couple of new CD for Christmas, bought from the slopes of 7Digital.  They appear in my iTunes library but my iPod Classic does not synchronize more so I am unable to transfer them to my iPod.

    I'm relatively new to al cela but do not want to wipe everything iPod accidentally pressing the wrong thing. On my iTunes summary, a box to say "Sync only checked songs and videos".  Everything is checked into the library.

    Can someone tell me please.

    Thank you so much x

    p.s. I wish I never installed Windows 10.

    I have an old 4th gen iPod "classic" with black & white screen too...

    If your library iTunes music everything fits on your iPod, it's easy to set up.  You must enable automatic synchronization and tell iTunes to sync 'all '.

    Select iPod in iTunes (click on its button on the device on the horizontal bar), to display the settings screen in the iTunes window.  The side left (in the sidebar), under settings, click music.  Right, parameters of music on the iPod screen.

    NOTE: For anyone else reading this, any song on iPod which is NOT in the iTunes library (on computer) will be lost.

    At the top of the window, check the box to Sync music.  This enables automatic synchronization.  Below, choose the option to synchronize the entire music library.  At the bottom, click apply.  iTunes syncs "all" (music-related) for iPod.  Go further, iTunes automatically synchronizes the changes in the music library on iPod, the next time it is connected (or when you click Sync if already connected).
