Like many, I've experienced problems with devices not connection to iTunes

I use a Dell with Windows 10, including updates on both.

It is really a problem that must have already been addressed by Apple.  Following the advice of aid in iTunes and on the Apple discussion Forum and managed to get my iPhone 6s to be recognized by iTunes.  After trying to get an of my being recognized by iTunes from the iPod, the iPhone will not be more connect anywhere.  None of my iPod is recognized.   It's very frustrating.

I tried to go back and install an earlier version of iTunes, but it would not recognize the library created by the most recent version.  I uninstalled the previous version and not reinstalled the current threshold of one - no connectivity.

On all of these work, I discovered that Device Manager displays the iPhone or iPod, but with the Device Manager still open, if you start iTunes, the devices disappear from Device Manager - as iTunes withdrew on Device Manager.

I have an iPod diagnostic file but it seems that there is not much information about this problem.

I hope only that some of you/us will provide some ideas on how to correct the problem.  It is the first time that I've known of Apple being so pathetic to send updates.

If anyone has any other suggestions...

  • iTunes will not regroup under the name of artist albums

  • iPod not recognized by iTunes?

    I have iTunes installed on a computer running Windows 10. iTunes is updated to the latest version since this morning.

    My iPod is a 7th generation Nano

    Here's what I've tried so far:

    • Update to iTunes (the problem began before the update and persisted thereafter)
    • Reset the iPod (by pressing the menu and sleep buttons, or whatever they are called, until the screen goes black and then displays the apple logo)
    • Reinstall iTunes
    • Removal/installation/update driver iPod (my iPod appears under portable devices and tells the pilot because it is the latest version, attempts to manually install the driver in the iTunes folder indicates which is the driver already installed). I tried this before and after reinstalling iTunes.

    However, I don't have an Apple Mobile Device driver. I couldn't find two solutions to do this, which has been updated the driver on the iPod, which did nothing. Another option involved to restart the Apple Mobile Device Service. Who also did nothing.

    I also read that reformat the iPod through disk management has worked as well, but my iPod does not appear as a disk. In fact, it is not at all. iTunes opens when it is connected and says it cannot recognize it, but it does not appear under devices and readers.

    On a strange note, I have an unknown USB device under USB controllers in device management. Out of curiosity, I unplugged my iPod, uninstalled and plugged my iPod back, time in which the unknown device is returned. So I guess it's my iPod (in the unrecognized State). You know not so relevant.

    I am at one loss as to what else to do. The iPod still works, I can still listen to all music that has been synchronized to him before, but that's all.

    This just started today. Every other time I connected the iPod, it was immediately recognized by iTunes and worked well. Seems that the problem is the absence of the Apple Mobile Device driver, if I was not able to fix this.

    I have not tried to plug the iPod on another computer yet. The only other computer I have is an old laptop that takes forever to initialize. I will try that, after work and see if my iPod works on that one.

    If you have already tried to reinstall iTunes and manually delete specific things like the drivers, you can completely remove iTunes and related software components

    Don't forget to uninstall the components all the listed in the described order.  Then, download and install the latest version of iTunes from here

  • iTunes and Blackberry link conflicts

    Hi, link to Blackberry stopped working after the last update of iTunes in Windows 10.

    I made Blackberry suggest workaround solution, as follows:

    "Rename the file of l iTunesPrefs.xmand restart the BlackBerry link application.

    Please note: Completing the steps below may have harmful effects on the functionality of iTunes. For more information, contact Apple support.

    To rename the iTunesPrefs.xml;

    1. Turn on the Show hidden folders and files
    2. Go to \AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\ < username > C:\Users\
    3. The XML in the file iTunesPrefs and rename it to iTunesPrefs.old

    Once finished, he recommends to disable display the hidden files and folders. »

    My question is, how will this affect iTunes functionality, or not at all?

    Rename iTunesPrefs.xml will reset various settings in iTunes. If your library is < user music > \iTunes default path and you have the options to keep... and copy... enabled, you may not notice a change, but the parameters that will have been reset include the active library, media folder file, sharing of XML, the import settings, etc. Check through each tab in Edit > Preferences to see if there's anything to change the way that you had it before.

  • iPhone restore backup encryption bug in iTunes

    First the details of my system:

    El Capitan 10.11.6

    iPhone iOS 6 10.0.2


    Steps to reproduce:

    1 backup the by using the encrypted password (current running iOS 10) iPhone

    2. once the backup is complete change password encrypted from A to B

    3. restore the iPhone using the backup.

    The backup cannot be restored with A password or password B.

    I think that most people would say I forgot the password B. You would be a mistake. Password B was stored in my keychain and it wouldn't work. To check that I had the correct password, I downloaded a password free utility cracking. For some reason, these utilities are available for Windows only. I used the utility of tenorshare. Since I was sure I knew the password, I used boxes of prefix and suffix of the utility to verify that the password is correct. The utility shows you only the first 2 characters of your password once he finds her. Since I am sure that I knew the password, I put the first 7 characters of the password in the prefix box password and he assumes that the last of them (which I knew that). Then I put the first 6 characters of the password in the prefix area of password and the last character in the zone suffix and guess the second to the last character (which I knew that too). In both cases, he finds the password, which confirmed that all my characters were correct, but iTunes would not accept. At this point, I was convinced this is an Apple bug, so I googled some more and found this blog which confirms:

    "If you recently changed your password backup in iTunes, and iTunes is now reports that 'the password was incorrect' when you try to restore this backup, then we may be able to help."

    There is a small problem affecting backups iOS 10 - sometimes changing password causes backup the password being rejected (both new and old passwords) when you try to use the backup that you did. »

    I was able to solve my problem of password associated with the procedure.

    My backup was too important to wait for a solution possible iTunes. Apple should recognize this problem and have a fix as soon as POSSIBLE.

  • iTunes is unforgivable!

    In my iTunes library, I noticed that he was missing a song, not any song and iTunes purchased song (Pretty Girls in Despicable Me soundtrack).  I found the folder, it should have been in the folder was empty.  So I went to the iTunes store and it showed the song was supposed to be in my library and click play to listen to but no file so that it is not play.  I looked in my purchases to a place to download the file and he had nothing.  I decided that since I just had the one song that maybe, MAYBE if I finished the album it would be re - download the song.  I saw the song click by and it says downloading but when I go to find the song no, not there.  All other songs were there, but not the one I'm looking for.

    So now I write here because I believe that this should not happen at all.  There should be a way to re - download songs iTunes itself LOSES her you bought from the iTunes store.  I was advised to call iTunes support through this web page, but could not because he wanted a serial number, a serial number of the software iTunes on my windows computer?  To recap, an iTunes purchased song listed in my purchased items is missing, I hunt for a file or a place to download with no luck, I then spend additional money to complete the album its on and get additional songs, but not the I'm hunting for initially.  I then try to contact the support only to request a serial number that does give me no understanding as to what or where to find.

    Please find away to allow me to download my purchased music to the registered computer that I use for the next five years.

    Fill an album will make no difference to the ability to download a previous purchase.

    If you have deleted the music file on your computer then you still have the track listed in the section my music from iTunes to your computer? If you do then select and remove from there and it should show then in the section purchase (account > bought on the latest version of iTunes menu option; or buy link under quick links on the right side of the home page of the iTunes store) for redownloading - if she does not show it check to see if you have hidden it cloud : Hide and expose the iTunes Store or App Store purchases made on iBooks Store - Apple Support.
