Find Answers and Solutions of the most asked Questions regarding Apple iTunes™
Apple iTunes™ is a free application which lets you organize and play your digital files on both your PC and Mac and is able to sync your media with various Apple devices like the iPod, iPhone, iPad and Apple TV. At the same time, iTunes™ acts as an online store where you can explore through a massive collection of music and videos, providing you thus everything you need for your entertainment. We were frequently asked for help regarding both iTunes™ and our software so please find solutions and answers to the most common issues by taking a look at the following FAQ:
How can I transfer my iTunes™ playlist to another computer?
There are several methods you can use to transfer your iTunes playlists from one computer to another. Home Sharing is probably the easiest. Using an external drive requires additional hardware but has the benefit of backing up your iTunes™ library. Transferring purchases allows you to do the transfer as well and it works on purchased iTunes content only. Windows Migration Assistant has the advantage of moving all your data, not only iTunes movies and music, but it does so exclusively from a Windows PC to a Mac. And last but not least, backing up your iTunes™ data on CDs or DVDs can also secure a transfer between computers. You can find step by step instructions on how each of these methods can be completed on the Apple iTunes™support page.

How can I play purchased iTunes™ music and movies with other media players?
Generally, iTunes™ movies and music come in formats which are not recognized by other media players. iTunes™ music is in AAC format (i.e. M4P, M4A) and iTunes™movies and videos are MOV or M4V files. In order to use these types of files with other players, first you need to convert them to a compatible file format.

How can I switch my iTunes™ account from one computer to a new one?
One iTunes™ account can be used on 5 different computers. If you already reached the limit and want to have access to your iTunes library on a new computer, you need to deauthorize one of the 5 computers previously used and authorize a new one. This can be done by opening iTunes™, going to “Store” and choosing “Deauthorize this Computer”. To authorize the other computer, follow the same steps but click “Authorize this Computer” instead. Copy your iTunes™ library from the old computer to the new one afterwards and you are done.

Are there any free iTunes™ movies or TV shows available?
Yes, iTunes™ does offer a limited number of movies and TV shows you can watch for free. If you open iTunes™ on your computer, go to the iTunes™ Store and look for the “Free on iTunes™” section in the “Quick Links” box, you will find a selection of free iTunes™ music, videos, movie featurettes and podcasts, plus a choice of books and free iTunes™ apps you can take your pick from. Additionally, all content on iTunes™ U is free.

How much time do I have to watch movies that I rent?
Generally movies you rent will disappear from your iTunes™ library when the rental period ends. You have 30 days to start watching a movie after you rent it. When you start watching the movie, you have 24 hours (in the US) or 48 hours (elsewhere) to finish it. However with Audials Software this limit disappears after using the ‘save video’ mode, one of many functions Audials One offers.

Is there a way to sync my iTunes™ playlists with an Android phone?
Yes, syncing iTunes™ libraries to an Android device is possible. Generally, iTunes™ does not allow syncing with non Apple devices (syncing iTunes™ with an iPod, iPad or iPhone should not raise any difficulties) but using a 3rd party software/app should solve the issue. DoubleTwist is a popular app which enables iTunes™ to Android syncing. It runs both on your Android device and on your computer and has the advantage of being easily manageable. However, this is a paid software. Salling Media Sync is also capable of transferring iTunes™ playlists, music and podcasts to mobile devices and is free for basic use. TuneSync, Easy Phone Tunes, iSyncr and Music WithMe are also known to facilitate iTunes to Android syncing.

I am having problems syncing my iPad/iPod/iPhone with iTunes™, how can this be fixed?
There are a couple of things which should be taken into account if you are experiencing problems syncing your iPad, iPod or iPhone with your iTunes™ account: first, make sure your iTunes™ version is up to date, sometimes iPad, iPod, iPhone syncing problems may be caused by an outdated version. Secondly, check your firewall settings, they might be blocking iTunes™from connecting and working properly. Disable your security software temporarily and try to sync iTunes™ with your iPad again. If this is not the issue either, you might want to check the format of your files. Not every music and video format is accepted by Apple. Most common formats which can be downloaded into iDevices are AAC, MP3, MP4, so if you are trying to upload a different format, you may undergo some syncing difficulties. USB connection or a corrupted hard drive can also result in syncing problems.
