Can't back up with iTunes (Sync works fine)
« on: July 07, 2016, 09:28:09 AM »
Device: iPod 2G (MB)
Computer: Mac OSX 10.11.5

Since updating to whited00r, When I try to backup my iPod in iTunes, I get the following message:

“iTunes could not back up the iPhone “(name)” because the backup could not be saved on the computer”,

I can sync music over just fine, I just can't back up.

Steps I have tried:
1. Deleting all iPod back ups
2. Trying to create a new manual back up (This doesn't work).

Is there a way to fix this? Thanks!

Thanks also for creating the excellent Whited00r. I can't believe how much faster my iPod is. It's like getting a brand new device!

You won't have to fix it, because next time you're gonna reinstall Whited00r or stock iOS, you must not use a back up to restore your device ! It might create some problems...
You have to set you iPod as a new device.

Yes, I set up my iPod as a new device, but the message still appears.

I don't really care about making a back up, I just don't want the message poping up everytime I Sync.

Thanks for your help!
