Problem Description

The synchronization client cannot see the iTunes library.

Possible Cause #1 and Resolution 

After iTunes 12.2, the iTunes library is not shared in a way third parties can read it without some additional configuration. To enable this functionality:

  1. Open iTunes preferences.
  2. Select the Advanced tab
  3. Check the Share iTunes Library XML with other applications checkbox
  4. Restart the Synchronization client
