How to import pictures onto my iPod Touch

Music Player Apple iPod Touch can store personal photos along with music files and video. ITunes, the same program as the applications of music and movies on the iPod's controls, you can also synchronize photos stored on a computer to the internal memory of the iPod Touch. The setup process requires only a single session, then iTunes will automatically update the photos on the device when synced folder content change.


1. Note the location of the photos you want to import into your computer's hard drive. You can consolidate the images easier to synchronize, or create a new folder specifically for the iPod photo.


2. Connect the iPod Touch to the computer via the USB cable supplied with the unit, and wait for iTunes to open. If the system is running a Windows operating system without iTunes installed, you can download from the Apple website.


3. Click on the iPod Touch icon in the device list. Select the "Photos" tab.


4. Click the "Sync Photos" check box and drop-down menu. Click "Select Folder" and navigate to the parent folder that holds the images and click OK. You do not select a specific subdirectory.


5. Click the radio button "All Folders" to import all the photos on the parent folder, or click the "Selected folders" to select individual folders to import. The second option is chosen, place a check mark next to items in the "Folders" section.


6. Click "Apply" and wait for iTunes to the new data to synchronize with the iPod Touch. When finished, press the "eject" and unplug the device. The next time the iPod is connected to the computer updates the video library on iTunes from changes in synchronized folders.

it says can not sync ipod(-53) What does this mean..how to fix


Hi, message saying "can not sync" means that the connection from the ipod to the computer was not successful..
If you sync your iPod with a different/empty library iTunes will only give you the option to copy your iTunes Store purchases directly from the iPod to the computer and everything else on it will be erased. You'll find details on transferring purchases in this article: iTunes Store: Transferring purchases from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod to a computer

Purchased applications can be downloaded over again, see this article for details: How to redownload purchased applications from the App Store

If you want to recover the music from CDs etc that is on the iPod and transfer it to your new computer there are a few things you can do. music from CDs etc.) there are a number of third party utilities that you can use to retrieve the music files and playlists from your iPod Touch or iPhone. You'll find that they have varying degrees of functionality and some will transfer data (such as playcounts and ratings), movies, videos, photos, podcasts and games as well.

A selection of iPod/iPhone to iTunes utilities:
Senuti Mac Only (iPod Touch & iPhone compatible)
SharePod Windows Only (iPhone and iPod Touch compatible)
TuneJack Windows Only (iPhone and iPod Touch compatible)
iPodRip Mac & Windows (iPhone and iPod Touch compatible)
Music Rescue Mac & Windows (iPhone and iPod Touch compatible)
iPod Music Liberator Mac & Windows (iPhone and iPod Touch compatible)
iGadget Mac & Windows (iPhone and iPod Touch compatible)
iRepo Mac & Windows (iPhone and iPod Touch compatible)
iPod Access Mac & Windows (iPhone and iPod Touch compatible)
TouchCopy Mac & Windows (iPhone and iPod Touch compatible)

I would also advise that you get yourself an external hard drive and back your stuff up, relying on an iPod as your sole backup is not a good idea and external drives are comparatively inexpensive these days, you can get loads of storage for a reasonable outlay: Back up your iTunes library by copying to an external hard drive

One last thing, you need to take care connecting to an empty iTunes. Open iTunes first and go to Edit>Preferences>Devices and check the box "Prevent iPods and iPhones from syncing automatically" and choose Ok before connecting your device.

Once you have recovered everything from the iPod and your iTunes library has been rebuilt it will be safe to sync again.

How to download songs to the MP3 player


iTunes is an application that allows the user to manage audio and video on a personal computer, acting as a front end for Apple's QuickTime media player. Officially, using iTunes is required in order to manage the audio of an Apple iPod portable audio player, although alternative software does exist. Users can organize their music into playlists within one or more libraries, edit file information, record Compact Discs, copy files to a digital audio player, purchase music and videos through its built-in music store, download free podcasts, back up songs onto a CD or DVD, run a visualizer to display graphical effects in time to the music, and encode music into a number of different audio formats.

You have to download iTunes software and make a playlist then sinc the ipod.
