Question about Apple iPhone Cell Phones

3 Answers

I'm not able to transfer music from itunes to iphone since switching from a mac to pc, what can I do?

I have a 16gb iphone 4 but around 60gb of music. When i owned a mac laptop, i was able to go into itunes and select and remove which albums i wanted on my iphone. Since switching to a pc with windows 8, when i go into itunes, the albums i have on my pc are all listed, but next to them where there are usually ticks to show which albums are in the iphone, they are all completely blank. It does show volume makeup of the iphone - ie music/apps/pictures storage space - and i have been able to transfer one album across, but only because it said there was only enough space for that album. If i tried to move any more over, it says there is no space. So it recognizes that there is music on there, but it wont let me edit the music that is on the iphone.

I assume you downloaded the latest iTunes to PC then signed into your Apple ID to backup the iphone first.otherwise the library that's on the computer will not identify correctly with the iphone.if your new computer does not have all those songs on the hdd like the Mac you can try copying them over album by album but it takes ages.one work around is to download a small program called ifunbox....it's free and is much better at transferring stuff to and from iPhones.also easy to move files videos pictures that way.

Testimonial: "Thanks for taking the time to help me John. I have downloaded ifunbox, but i cannot find where i can remove music from my iphone, and also where to add music to it. The only area i can see options to work with music is in the Quick Toolbox. And when you choose Export files and data, there is no option to choose from the iphone itself. How do you remove music from your iphone with this tool please?"

    Hi John, by the left hand column i presume you mean the File Browser and folder view? This is where you see camera photos, apps and general usage listed? Well there is no music folder listed in this section, maybe this is my problem?

Is there any way to transfer my iTunes music to my iPhone or do I have to pay just to have music on my phone


Use the power cord for the iPhone. It should be the USB connector on one end and the small plug on the other end. Plug the USB into the computer and open up iTunes. Under the FILE menu at the top, there should be a pull down sub menu that say "devices" SYNC.
Your iPhone will appear on the side bar once you switch to the "Playlist" page. You can drag a whole playlist into your phone icon or do individual tracks. At least, that's what I do.
Let me know if this works for you.

How do i transfer my ipod music to my mac ?


font.f1 {font: 12.0px Helvetica} Thanks for asking your question with Fixya Support. I will be glad to assist you.

To transfer music from your iPod Nano, you need to first have iTunes installed on your Mac.

Then you need to have music in your iTunes library, whether you are importing the music from your favorite CDs into iTunes, or if you are purchasing music directly from the Apple iTunes Music store, it has to be in the iTunes library.

Once you have your desired music in your iTunes library, follow this link below, which will guide you into transferring music into your iPod.

I hope this helps.
