Thread: iTunes doesnt really syncs

  1. #1
    Default iTunes doesnt really syncs
    After formatting my pc ive installed itunes again,
    At the bottom status bar it all turned orange saying everything is "Other"
    even though used to be before in categories with "Photos" "Movies" etc..

    Now, ive tried to sync in some more photos, it takes a while as is should
    going all over the syncing proccess (optimizing and so) and then says sync was completed,
    when i look up in my iphone i realize that nothing happed, same goes with movies and music...nothing happens...
    How can i fix it? Thanks.

    After reformatting your PC, all of your pairing information for iTunes was lost. So when you plugged in your iPhone, it was recognized as a new device, with an empty library. That's why everything is showing up in orange (other) because iTunes doesn't recognize what's on there. The iPhone meanwhile doesn't think anything is wrong so it keeps the same library and iTunes can't create a new one.

    Sign into your iPhone and delete ~/Media/iTunes_Control & Photos

    Plug the phone back in, resync, and you should be fine.
    Get "iPod & iTunes for Dummies", it'll change your life.
