Re: help, i cannot put music on my iphone

I have the same issue. The best workaround is to create a playlist in iTunes specifically for the iPhone, and just have the phone sync that list.

I have a problem to download music.


As with much to do with the iPhone, there's a bit of a trick to getting this working smoothly so you can have control over your iPhone music, while keeping it as darn easy to work with as possible. The answer? Create a custom playlist for your iPhone music library.
Let me show you how to do it - it's pretty darn easy.
Pop into iTunes and choose File --> New Playlist. Now rename it to something logical: I use "iPhone Sync":

Now you can just drag and drop music from your iTunes library (in iTunes, needless to say) into this new playlist. When you're ready, you'll see a bunch of music happily ensconced in the playlist (remember, it's all just "pointers": the actual music files are still safely in the main music library, so if you delete something from a playlist , you haven't deleted the original music file itself):

At the bottom of the iTunes window it shows you how many songs are in the playlist, along with the size and total playing time.
At this point, you need to plug in your iPhone if you haven't already done so. It'll pop up the usual summary screen:

Now click on the "Music" tab and you'll see that you can select "sync playlist". Do that, then select the new iPhone sync playlist you've created

Set things up and that's all there is to it. Now click "Sync" in iTunes and it'll synchronize your playlist with the iPhone music library and next time you click on that ole' "iPod" button on the iPhone, your selections from you music library will be present.
Oh, and one really nice feature of creating this playlist is that you can manage it, adding and deleting songs to your heart's desire, even without your iPhone present. Whatever changes you make are instantly applied to your iPhone music library the very next time you synchronize the device. Suddenly even 8GB might feel small. :-)

I dont know how to install music in my ipod

Please Follow the steps

Step 1: Launch iTunes and plug in your iPhone.

Step 2: Create a new "playlist" in iTunes. Name it whatever you want-say, "My iPhone Playlist" or something like that.

Step 3: Drag the songs you want from your iTunes library to your new playlist-in this case, "My iPhone Playlist"

Step 4: Click on your iPhone and go to the Music tab. "Sync Music" should already be checked. Now click on the button "Selected playlists", then tick off "My iPhone Playlist" (or whatever your playlist is named).

Step 5. Sync your iPhone and when it's done, the songs from "My iPhone Playlist" should now be on your iPhone. If you want to make any changes to your mp3 library on your iPhone, you'll have to modify the songs within your playlist, then re-sync again. Yes, I know it can be a pain.

How do i transfer Music to my Iphone from my computer, Once plugged into the computer the songs that are currently in the iphone are unhighlighted and cannot move songs to or from the iphone.. Please help

You need to create a playlist for the iPhone. This isn't intuitive and I don't know why it's this way. It works great, there just isn't anything explaining what to do. This seems to snag Windows users the most. Maybe Mac users are already used to doing things this way? I don't know.

Below is a picture of my iTunes. Look down in the lower-left corner and see that my playlist is highlighted. At the very bottom-left corner you can click the plus sign to create a new playlist. Then drag all of the music you want to the playlist. Finally, in the music tab of your iPhone, make sure you click the playlist you just made to sync all music on that list to your phone.

This will do the trick.

Cant dowload song to my ifone

Install itunes if you have not already then of course add your music files that are on your computer to itunes.

make a playlist including any song(s) that you want on your iphone to do this right click with your mouse on the song you want to add to the playlist and select add to playlist from the pop up menu you see (you will be given a list of all of your playlists and you select the one you want to add it to)

With your iphone connected to itunes you will see an icon on the left of itunes for the phone.. click this to get a screen for your iphone with tabs along the top.. one of these tabs is 'music'

Click the music tab and you will see a list of all of your playlists put a tick in the box next to the one(s) you want to add to your phone and perform a Sync (button bottom right in itunes on that tab screen)

Downloading music

No problem. Open iTunes and you will see in the bottom lefthad corner a plus sign. Clicking on the + will create a new playlist. Simply name the playlist whatever you want and drag and drop your songs into the folder. Once that is done connect your iPhone and it should automatically sync. If it does not drag the playlist to the icon of your iPhone in the left hand margin. If you need more clarification just let me know. Please rate me well if this has helped you out.
Take Care,
