Try this to get your iPod to sync with your 10.5.8 Mac:
Synced media like apps and music are not included in the iPod backup that iTunes makes. Yu can redownload iTunes purchases by:
iTunes places the backup files in the following places:
- Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup/
Yes you can place the G5 in target mode and then copy the iTunes library to the MacBook.
thanks for your reply. I checked the ~/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup/, folder, but all files are impossible to decipher which one belongs to what.
I was able to upgrade itunes10.6.3 on the G5 PPC. Another problem I encounter, is that when I attmpt.
The error I get is when I am suddenly being prompted to put my username and password..... but it says it is invalid. It goes to step 4, and says "this computer is no longer authorized for apps....would you like to authorize this computer for items purchased from the itunes store.... if you do not authorize.. 22 apps will be deleted"
I click authorize, and then my user name is already in there, but my password has to be inputed. (never had to do this before) After putting my password i Get: "there was an error storing your authorization info on this computer...the required directory was not found or has a persmissions error. Correct the permissions problem and try again, or deauthorize this computer if the permission cannot be chnaged".
No I don't know if this problem comes from the fatc that "mobile me" is not more . Like when I go to sys pref, Mobile me (10.5.8 does not have iCloud) and attempt to sign in, it won't work. (BTW my usernam and password is automatically in the respective fields- no need to manually input them.)
Could this problem be due to itunes not being able to log into my "icloud" account vs "mobile me" account? it is interesting that it stopped working early October, when mobile me went out of biz at end of June!!
I rememeber having repaired the permissions 2 weeks ago and tried to Sync. Did not work. I reapaired them again 3time yesterday. Again when it isi time to enter the "password" to authorize the computer, it still does not work.
it looks like that it's the similar glitch related to the "mobile me" account that does not LOG in anymore, as if iTunes Username and password is being rejected along with the "mobile me" username and password in the Sys prefs. (I know it was closed in June July 2012) But could this be related???? Problem logging in?
