Cannot transfer Tracks

When dragging a track to the device icon when signed into my music account, an error comes up after the supposed transfer telling me "the track cannot be transferred due to an error in detecting the device clock"

I could not find anything to point me in this direction.

How can I stop my music from being deleted when I plug my player up to the computer to sync more music onto it from windows media player?


If on iTunes it will only allow music that you have purchased from iTunes. Anything else it sees are pirated. You can get over this by buying an iTunes Match subscription. This allows you to transfer any music it iCloud and iTunes, so when you synch, all your music is there. You can drag your music from Windows Media player to iTunes.

If you are using a Windows phone, just Google the problem as someone will have come across it before.

Rather than Synching, you may be able to drag individual tracks to the player. Synching does what it says, it make the one device the same as the other device, so if there are tracks on the player that are in Windows Media Player, it will remove them so both are the same. There may be a setting to NOT Delete what is on the player, just Update New Tracks.

How do I add music from your iPod to a new computer?


<p>The media player will not allow iTunes users to transfer files from one device to the iPod library. ITunes only allows one library to the device. This route is a unidirectional transfer problem for iPod users who want their music to be added to other computers. You can transfer music from your iPod to a new computer, but discovering the hidden folders on the device. They contain information about your iPod music files, which can then be copied to the PC. It takes only minutes to discover the hidden folders and transfer music to start. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Locate the USB cable that came with your iPod device. Plug the cable into the groove bottom of your iPod. Connect the other end of the cable to an available USB port on your computer. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Turn on the computer. Wait for the machine to boot. Click the "Start" button and then select Control Panel. Double click on the "Portable Media Devices" icon. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Double-click your iPod in the list of available units. Click the "Tools" menu and select "Options." Choose the option "Show hidden files and folders" option. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Open the folder called "\ iPod_Control \ Music". This folder contains all audio files on your iPod device. The tracks are divided into sub-folders by artist. Then click and drag the entire music folder to your desktop or drag the individual tracks of the sub-folders. Your computer will automatically copy the files to your hard drive. <br />

I can't transfer music to the ipod


Within iTunes, just select the music tracks (use CTRL-and-mouse-click) to choose multiple tracks, and then "drag-and-drop" them onto the icon for the iPod device.

When i transfer music from my library it deletes all existing tracks from device


Are the existing tracks still on your computer? Most mp3 devices won't keep existing music on the device unless told to do so. Basically, don't delete any playlists or tracks from the program that you are using to transfer the music.

Transferring music from pc to mass storage device.


Hi,

You said that you checkd the properties of all the 150 tracks right.

150 tracks is 560 MB.

The error message you are getting informs that there is nothing wrong with the player or something.

This eror rfers that the source file cannot be located by the system to transfer or the source file is corrupted.

Try the other source file.

Try transferring the other newly downloaded file.

Hope it helps.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.

License Expired


There are 2 reason why you would get that error..
1) when you transferred the tracks to the device the licenses didnt transfer...
2) The tracks you transferred are subscription tracks meaning that you have to sync your device each month in order to have those tracks playing...

If you dont have a subscription for the tracks...(you will have to format your device in that case) and also you could have a device certificate problem which can solve by formatting your device or your DRM components maybe bad...you can solve that problem by foramtting updating the firmware on the device..

If you have a subscription you need to download a new track and transfer it to the device again...that should update the licenses for every single tracks...If that doesnt do it you will have to format your device...

I hope this helps...
