Iphone: problems deleting music

I've reviewed alot of threads with similar questions but I think mine is a bit different. I loaded music with itunes on one computer that broke and I sent it back to the manufacture and they sent a replacement. My problem is that itunes will not sync up with songs loaded on iphone with different pc. I also tried to delete from the iphone itself without success. I would appreciate it if you can help me out. Thanks, Flodaddy

N itunes, on the top menu bar, where (File & Edit) Reside you should see store amongst the options. Click that, then on the drop down menu click authorize computer, enter your apple id. After that see if you can use the option "Transfer purchaces from iphone to itunes". After that is done look on your music library list in itunes, uncheck the songs that are in there (the ones from your iphone should be if synced properly). Now select you iphone from the device list. Next to the summary tab on main itunes screen you should see info next to that. Amongst those tabs locate Music. Click it and make sure Sync selected songs is checked, then in the bottom right corner click Apply. This process should "de-sync" your music. I hope this info helps.

How do I fix itunes unknown error (-50) on a dell vostro 1510 with windows 95?

Are you posting questions just to be a pain?
The Dell Vostros 1510 was released in 2008, it was never designed for Windows 95 and I seriously doubt they would have created W95 drivers for the hardware.
Dell Vostro 1510 Review NotebookReview com
The new iTunes is not 10.6.3, that was released in 2012
Apple releases iTunes 10 6 3
and even if it was, iTunes was never released for W95, the first Windows OS it supported was Windows 2000

How to add Songs on iPhone without a PC & iTunes

One of the few things that disappoint me about the iPad is that Apple's flagship tablet is still, to some extent, dependent on a nearby computer and an open window of iTunes or WinSCP. Bridge is a Cydia app which makes importing files to your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch without a computer an easier affair. While there are many apps and tweaks that can get content on your phone, Bridge has a special feature which makes it worth the $1.99 asking price.


We've already covered a number of methods to download programs to an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch without using iTunes. Some of the free methods include OpenSSH (for secure wireless file transfers from a computer), iTransmission 2 (for torrents), and Safari Download Enabler (for downloading links and video files from the web). The problem is that while these apps and tweaks are more than capable of loading music on to your phone, they don't add the files to the Music app. This means you can't make playlists with the songs you've just loaded onto your phone.
That's where Bridge comes in. With Bridge, you can locate the files you've downloaded to your device and properly import them into your library. You can use this to load Songs, Ringtones, and Podcasts for audio files, set album artwork from your photo roll, and also import movies.


Applying album art to an imported song in Bridge
The only downside is the music won't be transferred back to your computer by syncing through iTunes. That's not a limitation of the app, but a limitation in iTunes. It wasn't built to transfer user-loaded music to your computer from an iPod. If you ever need to import music to your computer, you can use SSH to copy the music over. The files should be stored in 'var/mobile/media/music'.
Bridge can be found in the BigBoss repository on Cydia. Share your thoughts in the comments section below.

I gave my girlfriend my old laptop computer & recently bought her a classic i-pod, I managed to download the music from the copmputer originally, but recently tried to add another CD which she wanted...

You need to authorize and deauthorize the computers appropriately for using the different ipods on different machines.
Read this article from apple web site.

Deauthorizing a computer allows you to manage which computers can play music, videos, audiobooks, or other content purchased from the iTunes Store.
Authorization helps protect the copyrights on the content you buy. You can use your digital rights management (DRM)-protected music purchases1 from the iTunes Store on up to five different computers (these can be any mix of Macintosh or Windows-compatible computers). When you play an item you've purchased, your computer is "authorized" to play content purchased using your Apple Account.
Note: Songs you encode in AAC format from a source other than the iTunes Store, such as your own audio CDs, and songs from iTunes Plus downloads do not need to be authorized.
Products Affected iTunes Store
To authorize a computer to play purchases using your Apple Account
  1. Select a song, video, or audiobook you've purchased (in your library or the Purchased playlist).
  2. Click the Play button.
If the computer is already authorized, the item plays. If the computer has not yet been authorized, iTunes asks you to enter the Apple ID and password you used to purchase the song.
Remember to deauthorize your computer before you sell it, give it away, or get your computer serviced.
To deauthorize a computer
  1. Open iTunes.
  2. Choose Store > Deauthorize Computer (In earlier versions of iTunes, access this option from the Advanced menu).
  3. Select "Deauthorize Computer for Apple Account" and enter your Apple ID and password.
Make sure you deauthorize your computer before you upgrade your RAM, hard disk or other system components, or reinstall Windows. If you do not deauthorize your computer before you upgrade these components, one computer may use multiple authorizations.
To deauthorize all computers associated with your account If you find you have reached 5 authorizations, you can reset your authorization count by clicking Deauthorize All in the Account Information screen.
  1. Click iTunes Store in the menu on the left side of iTunes.
  2. If you're not signed in to the store, click the Account button, then enter your account name and password.
  3. Click the Account button again (your ID appears on the button), enter your password, and then click View Account.
  4. In the Account Information window, click Deauthorize All.
Note: You may only use this feature once per year. The Deauthorize All button will not appear if you have fewer than 5 authorized computers, or if you have used this option within the last 12 months. If you need assistance on using this feature, please contact the iTunes Store support via email (

Additional Information
  • iTunes DRM-protected music includes audio with a bit rate of 128 kbps and allows users to transfer songs and videos to up to five computers, burn seven copies of the same playlist to CD, and sync to an unlimited number of iPods.
  • iTunes Plus music refers to songs and music videos available in our highest-quality 256 kbps AAC encoding (twice the current bit rate of 128 kbps), and without digital rights management (DRM). There are no burn limits and iTunes Plus music will play on all iPods, Mac or Windows computers, Apple TVs, and many other digital music players.
  • While you may need to enter your account information again after initializing or formatting your hard disk, initializing or formatting the hard disk itself does not remove the computer from the list of authorized computers. If you plan to initialize or format your hard disk prior to selling or donating your computer, deauthorize the computer first, then initialize or format the hard disk.
  • Under some circumstances you may be required to enter your registration information again, but this should not use up multiple authorizations. If you think that you may have used up multiple authorizations on just one computer, see One computer using multiple iTunes Store authorizations.
  • The iTunes Store is governed by its Terms of Service, which permits Apple to change the authorization policy.
  • You can authorize computers not located in the United States so you can play previously purchased music.
  • An Apple ID based on an expired .Mac (pronounced "dot Mac") or Mobile Me account name and password can still be used to purchase items and to authorize or deauthorize computers to play purchased music.

Puting music on my ipod

Hey lacie_brat,

In order to load music onto your iPod you will need to use the iTunes program. Unfortunately, in order to download the software and create an iTunes account, you may be required to provide Apple with some basic contact information.

Typically, the kind of information that is usually collected will be limited to your name and an e-mail address, but you may also be prompted to provide a valid mailing address or phone number. Please keep in mind that as with any fee-based service, this information may be collected to ensure that your account cannot be accessed or modified by an unauthorized third party.

If you have any questions as to why Apple would request your personal information, I would strongly suggest that you review their privacy policy FAQ through the link I've provided below.

Hope this helps you out.

Free software to DOWNLOAD my 80gig classic ipod to my new computer

went to and got free trial of MUSIC RESCUE from the forum after spending most of the day reading threads (wanted to be sure the "trial offer" didn't sting me half-way through a 20 gig download.)
The ephpod's software is the easiest to find, but one of the threads said his new 80gig classic ipod (same as mine!) crashed.
Somewhere there's an ipod compatibility chart, make sure your ipod matches.
There's several different software packages available, with "limited features" but music rescuer offered full features except for annoying pop-ups. Every 50 tunes it said to make this annoyance stop simply donate 10 pounds (british.) i clicked the mouse alot more than 40x finding this!
Anyway, download the help screen also (read it twice!), and it's basically idiot proof.
There's also a book, How to do everything with yout ipod and itunes by Guy Hart-Davis published by McGraw-Hill/Osbourne, that's basically an IPOD for DUMMIES

Ipod will not connect with ITunes

Okayy.This has happened to me too,firstly check you have the latest itunes software.
Surprisingly this can make a difference.
If nothing else works i would back up all music on a cd or memory stick,and reinstall itunes.from there everythings set as the default settings so if anything has been changed to cause itunes not recognising the ipod this may fix it.This is how i fixed mine.Hope this helps!

How to put music on your iphone without using itunes

I would also like to use the iPhone without iTunes.
iTunes is one of the worst programs i' ve ever tried. It´s slow, big and way to complex. It feels like a mac ( totally unnecessary..:-)
I tried it when i bought my iPod Shuffle. Luckily i found a little program, that could do the job without iTunes.
I want my computer to find the iPhone as an USB disk and just copy paste the music.
