Uploading itunes to Dropbox. I get 'An unknown error occurred'. (?)

New member | Level 2

I am trying to transfer my iTunes music to a new phone and Dropbox seems to be the best answer. However every time I try to move my playlist to Dropbox I get an error message: 'An unknown error occurred'. I've tried about 10 times with the same outcome. Is the file too big?? This is really frustrating to just get a random error message. Please help!

Re: uploading itunes to dropbox

You havent said where the error is coming from? Is it iTunes or Dropbox? 

Few things to just make sure is that you've plenty of hard drive space available (enough for the iTunes folder AND the same again) or it will fail.
