I am using my iPod / iPhone / iPad for the first time
If your iPod or iPhone has never been used with iTunes, no library was created on your device. Therefore an error message will appear, stating that there was no library found on your iPod. You can fix this problem by following these simple steps:
Connect your iPod with your PC
Add a track
Synchronize your iPod with it
Now you successfully created a library on your iPod and you can use it with all CopyTrans programs.
If you don’t want to install iTunes on your computer and if you prefer to use CopyTrans Manager to organize your iPod, you can use iTunes on any computer you want (friends, family, colleagues…) to sync the iPod for the first time. CopyTrans programs work independent from iTunes libraries.
I have already used my iPod / iPhone / iPad with CopyTrans Manager
From time to time, CopyTrans Manager creates automatic backups of your iPod/iPad/iPhone library. Therefore, if you have already used your device with this program, you can recover one of your previous libraries.
To restore your iPod / iPhone / iPad library follow these steps:
From the main CopyTrans Manager window, click on the Menu button on the top right, then click “Settings”
Click “Restore” next to “Restore iOS device library from backup”
Select a library to restore (we suggest using the latest backup entries first). Click on “Restore”
CopyTrans Manager will create a backup of the current library, and then restore the library you selected.
If it fails, please read this article.

Important: If your iPod / iPhone / iPad has already been synchronized with iTunes and the above error message appears even when your iPod / iPhone / iPad library exists and is filled (at least with one song), please DO NOT synchronize with iTunes as it may cause a complete data loss.
