Thread: iPhone won't sync music

  1. #1
    Default iPhone won't sync music
    I'm using an unlocked/jailbroken iPhone 3G, running on 3.0.1 firmware. For some unknown reason, my music on itunes won't transfer over onto my iPhone. When I plug it in to my computer, it says that it's syncing my music, but when i check my iPhone, my newly added songs aren't there. What's wrong? One thing odd too, is that my podcasts did transfer over while my music won't. Help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    make sure itunes is set to sync music,, check the tick box in the music tab and make sure there is plenty of spare space
    If I've helped you remember to say

    bump #2? will i have to resort to restoring my iphone and redoing everything??

    same issue 3gs 3.0.1, and yes there is over 20gb of space and the box is checked. no clue what is going on. i have changed nothing, haven't had to sync for a while so i have no idea when it actually started.

    edit: well apparently one of my family members decided to upgrade itunes on me. i reverted back to 8.2 and that seemed to fix this.

    in addition to enabling the sync option, you'll have to tick which songs to transfer over to your iphone

    you can try man but i downgraded to 8.2 but it still didnt work.
    i found mine on google, just type how to downgrade to itunes 8.2 im pretty sure its the first link. im trying to see if i upgrade to 3.1.2 and hopefully that makes a difference.

    yeah, it doesn't. I recall myself having the problem before upgrading from 8.2. I've thought about 3.1.2, but I just don't know if that'll lock my jailbreak/unlocked phone.

    It works cyber. You can still unlock the 5.7.11 with blacksn0w. I have AT&T so i can't really give you a detailed answer on the whole unlock thing. But yea upgrading to 3.1.2 worked for me. Just have your things backed up so you won't lose any songs or files.

    I'm running 3.1.3 and have the same problem.
    The strange thing is, I can't change anything! I can not delete movies or add/delete music. I've checked everything and tried restarts. There are 999 songs on my iPhone and I can't change it. Coincidence?
