    People have itunes for music to transfer music to ipod shuffles. or ipod touch
    in all these years....Apple Geeks in CA...still cannot get this to work in any reliable way.
    How do they justify themselves on the payroll?
    I have both kinds of devices and have nothing but problems just doing the basics.
    (Am running latest iTunes)

    I've been using itunes on various windows PCs for around 10 years now. I've never really had any problems with it. The only problem I've had is my itunes database file has corrupted on a couple of occasions, but luckily I'm pretty stringent with backing it up so it's not been too much of a problem.

    Well, I'm sorry you're having issues, but would you mind sharing what those problems are? We can't help if you just complain.

    I have two shuffles and one ipod touch...both show up in itunes latest version but dragging music from sony library does nothing...I am unable to add music to either ipod....this is a basic function that Apple still does not reliably permit users to add music. This is just nuts.

    Check that "Manually Manage Music" is checked under the iPod settings when you plug it in to iTunes. If it's not, you'll have to go to the Music tab and select a playlist to sync instead.

    Not here? There should be. If you're trying to drag and drop music, you'll need it checked.

    If you are trying to use playlists to sync a large selection of music automatically, unselect this option and go to the Music tab under Settings on the left sidebar of the iPod and select a playlist accordingly.

    I solved the issue by going into Library and deleting the plist for itunes.....Now it seems to be better

    pluged in iphone 5C with which I made a short video Sunday...iTunes sees NO movie...none at all.
    Perhaps I need more stickers and other teen crap to make it work.

    If you're trying to watch the video on your computer, I don't think you can do that through iTunes. The videos in iTunes refers to synced videos from either the iTunes store or from a folder on your computer. Perhaps refer to this: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201302

    The inability to export a completed video to the desk top of my Mac....is a clear FLAW in the thinking of the Geeks in Cupertino.....What were they thinking? I think these Geeks go out of their way to make everything as complicated as possible for users...Apple has totally lost their way.
