It’s been bugging me for quite a while so I thought I’d see if anyone here has a clue about what’s going on…
I have a Music library of many 1000’s of tracks, mostly ripped, but some purchased. I have an iPhone 13 Mini, an iPad Pro 12.9, and an older iPad Pro 10.5, all with up to date OS’s. I have iCloud syncing turned on.
I back up the iDevices to my 2015 iMac running 11.6.2, and to iCloud before doing any OS updating. Every time I plug an iDevice into the iMac the Finder does its automatic sync routine and two weirdnesses occur:
the Finder on the iMac says it can’t find a few tracks that are in my Music library to sync and I have to click OK to continue (I can click a dropdown > to see more details but it doesn’t help me understand what’s going on.) And,
the Finder then proceeds to copy the same 190 tracks from Music on the iMac to the iDevice. As far as I can tell those 190 tracks are already available to play on the iDevices, so why is Finder copying them every time I plug in to the iMac?
Thanks for any ideas.
