First off, I don’t have a fix. I wish I did. If you have a fix PLEASE send it (via comment or contact form).
The problem has been annoying me since I setup WiFi sync.
From all the research I’ve done, I haven’t found any fixes. The problem seems to be caused by the use of WiFi syncing. I think it relates to the WiFi device becoming unavailable while doing a wifi sync. A problem that wouldn’t occur on a normal sync, and that would be unique to WiFi.
You should be able to prevent this by disabling the Wifi Sync (in iTunes click on your device, uncheck WiFi syncing).
There was a fix floating around that had you deleting iTunes folders, and restarting. That didn’t work for me.
As soon as I find a fix, will post a link to it here, and will post it on the blog.
Apple has released iOS 5 publicly. The update includes a ton of features.
To install iOS 5 on any iPhone 3GS, 4 or newer iPod Touch:
- Connect your device to iTunes
- Click on your device under “Devices” in the left bar
- Click on “Check for Update”
- Select “Download and Install”
Be sure you have iTunes 10.5 (I think you need this first).
To update your iTunes you can:
- Open iTunes
- Click Help -> Check for Updates
You can download it at apple.com/itunes. The official release version of 10.5 is downloadable (I couldn’t update iTunes to 10.5, but I was running a 10.5 beta).
New stuff includes:
- Support for iCloud
- Automatic downlaods
- Support for iOS 5 devices
- Wi-Fi Syncing (yay)
That’s about it, now we wait for iOS to be released tomorrow hopefully.
A post I wrote a few weeks ago with the launch of iTunes 10.4.1 identified that my Logitech keyboard (using SetPoint software) media keys stopped working once I updated to iTunes 10.4.1.
Originally I thought it would fix the issue, then it didn’t. In the past few days I found they would work again if certain software was open, but only if Set Point was disabled.
Thanks to one commenter, BrianE, we have a confirmed solution on the Apple discussion boards:
You can download iTunes 10.4.1 here.
- Fixing media keys on some keyboards (my Logitech keyboard finally works again, it broke in 10.4 — life has been hell)
- Issues with artwork on songs and videos
- Problems with iTunes upon Mac resuming from sleep
- VoiceOver support issues
- iTunes becoming unresponsive during an HD movie purchase
I went nuts trying to get my keyboard to work. I change songs dozens of times a day, and don’t want to alt tab out of the code I’m working on… I want to hit my keyboard media keys.
Things have been happening very fast in the past week or 2, and wanted to review them.
Hopefully, I’ll be covering the following:
- Beatles on iTunes
- iTunes 10.1
- iOS 4.2 coming soon
- Google Voice
- Mobile versions of Sites
There’s a lot on my mind, and I haven’t written in a while. Today I get to catch up.
For those of you who didn’t know, it’s been released.
- Game Center
- HDR photos from iPhone 4
- TV show rentals on iTunes
- Upload HD videos to YouTube via WiFi on iPhone 4
- iTunes Ping support
- Facetime calling directly form Favorites
Bug fixes are:
- iPhone 4 proximity sensor performance
- iPhone 3G performance
- Nike+iPod fixes
- Bluetooth improvements
I’ve had an Apple TV for about 3 or 4 years now. The old one that is, and have been very happy with my purchase. I know it wouldn’t have had a major impact being it costs about $300 and to be useful, requires the end user to be pretty saavy with the setup. I think the new Apple TV is enough of a departure to possibly be a BIG thing.
I’ve been trying to download it all day, finally seeing it available at Apple.com.
Yesterday Apple announced some new features to iTunes 10, some new iOS builds (4.1 and 4.2), new iPod models, and a new Apple TV line.
I’m a big fan of the Apple TV, and am very excited to hear it’s getting an upgrade (and a huge price cut, I paid $300 and was happy to do so). I may finally be able to have one on every TV in the house — without feeling guilty about it.
Apple TV has been the viewing platform of choice in our house on and off. It’s so easy to rent a nice looking movie (sorry Netflix, but the quality is just much better on Apple in my opinion — but I love the free movies). With the news that TV shows will be rentable, suddenly that $150 a month cable seems more optional than ever.
At $0.99 (the rumored price of renting a TV show) that’s 150 tv shows a month. Bye bye cable! If only you didn’t have my internet connection.
Time to “Check for Updates” and get the new iTunes 9.2.
