I have a Lumia 520 and I am trying to sync with iTunes on Windows 7. When I start the "Windows Phone app for desktop" program, it does not show anything from iTunes. I just get a "It's lonely in here..." message. I have checked the settings and it says "Sync music, videos and more from iTunes". I have the latest version of the application.

  • @NeilTurner - thanks. I tried those and no luck. – dave Jan 29 '14 at 14:10
  • If your question here(windowsphone.stackexchange.com/questions/8743/…) includes the answer to this question (you used the WP app) you should probably answer your own question, saying how you fixed it. – RareNCool Feb 6 '15 at 22:18

Eventually this was "fixed" by the latest version of the Windows Phone app and iTunes, but it took a few months before the two seems to play well together.

Even then, it would successfully sync once. Subsequent syncs failed when trying to delete files from the phone.

I should not be surprised, I've owned ms devices since the 90s and sync has always been a problem for them.
