I'm trying to sync music on my wife's Iphone 3gs and am having the hardest time. We have a Macbook that was synced to her Ipod previously and has been synced to this phone for a year and a half. We just never put music on her iphone.

I tried last night. Some songs will copy, but it will lock up on certain ones and say the file can't be written.

However, the file is fine and working in ITunes.

Is there any known fix for this? It's frustrating as hell.

Thanks in advance for any help.

I meant that people are going to just rag on itunes instead of helping you.

Jeez.

If you haven't already, try restoring the iphone first.

Done that.

I really can't figure this out. It gets through about 20 songs, then it will get stuck on one and say the file could not be written. It locks up the computer in the process too.

Do you have iTunes Match?

Not to my knowledge. Never heard of it.

I subscribe. $25 per year and totally worth it.

So let's say I subscribe to this, could I sync it with the other laptop I have without issue?

All your devices. Just log in on itunes, turn on itunes match and all the music is there.

Then on your iphone, under settings, turn on itunes match and all the music is there as well.

I have two iPods, an original Nano and an older Touch. The Nano takes songs fine. My wife's Nano takes songs fine. My iPod Touch? I get holes in the songs, literally blank spots of no music. Tried reformatting twice, no luck. I just gave up and don't use it for music.

Are you sure the files aren't corrupted? Can you redownload the songs?

I'm having a bitch of a time getting itunes Match to work. It will leave off a single song on quite a few of my CD rips and my Amazon music library. It's getting really annoying that it will recognize 9 of 10 songs and the song it leaves off is the best song on the album.

Was this issue resolved? If not, make sure you have the latest Mac OS updates installed along with the latest iTunes update installed. Good luck!

God, I can't wait to be out of the itunes business.
