Question about Apple iPod MA446LL/A MP3 Player
First, my old windows 2000 computer crashed. I got a new Windows XP(still deciding if that was the best choice).
So I had to transfer all my songs from my I-pod onto my new computer and new I-tunes...difficult and annoying!!!
However I successful resorted to a third party to do this and I got all my music from I-pod to my new computer/I-tunes. And everything is synced. However when I go to my I-pod's (when it’s plugged into my computer) the music is gray and I can't click on it or make playlists or move it around. When I click on manually manage for some reason, the songs are not gray anymore, and I cant move stuff around. BUT I want to be able to plug in my I-pod though without manually managing and to update and sync itself.
My song play from my I-tunes library on my computer fine
My songs play from my I-pod itself fine
But my music library(on my i-pod) when connected with I-tunes on my computer is gray unless I use manually manage and I do NOT want to, I want I-tunes to automatically update? Does anyone have a clue what to do? Am I clear enough on the problem?
You need to set your iPod to update manually, instead of syncing automatically when you plug it into the computer.
To do this, plug your iPod into your computer, and on the iPod info screen that pops up in iTunes when your iPod is connected, click "Manually Manage Files."
You'll now have to click and drag your songs from your library to your iPod, but now you can also play songs on your computer directly from your iPod and delete songs from your library without deleting them from your iPod at the same time.
Hope this helped!
