    I'm so frustrated with this! Please help.

    I'm running El Capitan on my MacBook Pro and iOS 9.01 on my iPhone 6. The iPhone says its syncing and it will carry out a backup but it won't transfer music or audiobooks. Ebooks and apps will transfer fine.

    I think this is all related to Apple (cloud) Music because I can't add any Playlists to my iPhone either. By the way, I reset all settings to try and resolve this with my iPhone but it just gave me 90 minutes of pain to set everything back up again.

    I've been googling different options for hours but none work.

    Here's what I've attempted so far:

    1. Reset network settings
    2. Turned Apple Music off & on both devices
    3. Signed out of Apple Store on both devices
    4. Rebooted both devices
    5. Deleted all music off iPhone (now can't get it back)
    6. Tried to manually add/sync music
    7. Turned off little snitch
    8. Restored iTunes settings from a few days ago (probably not back far enough, but I was worried id mess more up).

    My music is all messed up on the MacBook too - the location of seemingly random tracks keep getting lost by iTunes. I fix this by toggling keep iTunes organised, finding one missing track manually and then rebooting iTunes.

    Any fresh ideas guys?

    You may already know this but, Audiobooks are defaulted into iBooks now.
