Re: IPOD ? playlist backup

If your IPOD is set to automatic song transfer, and you created an ?on the go? playlist, the IPOD will automatically transfer all songs along with the playlist. I haven?t tried the following myself yet, but this is the only way that I can think of: Cancel the auto transfer option ? from the source list in itunes choose the iPod icon and press on the options button. Choose ?manually manage songs and playlists? If it doesn?t work then I guess its more of a one directional thing, that you get more options going from the PC to the iPod then the other way around.

Transfer playlist from Itunes to Ipod Nano

Open iTunes and plug in your iPod. On the left sidebar there should be your iPod name (If you can't find the sidebar, go to iTunes menu bar, under View, select Show Sidebar), go to your iTunes playlist and drag the songs you want to your iPod. For all of the songs, go to your iPod music library, even if you don't have songs, and on the bottom there should be a blue-ish bar. There might be a box saying "Autofill from iTunes library" click that ONLY if you want ALL songs from your iTunes to your iPod.
If you want to know how to put video or DVD movie onto iPod, I think this step by step guide would help you.
Hope it helps. Feel free to email me if you need further help.

How to down load a song to my appleipod nano 2gb?

To download songs to iPod nano: m Simply connect iPod nano to your computer. If iPod nano is set to update automatically, the download begins. Important: The first time you connect iPod nano to a computer, a message asks if you want to transfer songs automatically. If you accept, all songs, audiobooks, and other items are deleted from iPod nano and replaced with the songs and other items from that computer. If you don’t accept, you can still download songs to iPod nano manually without deleting any of the songs already on iPod nano. While music is being downloaded from your computer to iPod nano, the iTunes status window shows progress, and the iPod nano icon in the Source list flashes red. When the download is complete, a message in iTunes says “iPod update is complete.” If you set iTunes to download music manually, you can reset it later to update iPod nano automatically. For more information, see “Updating iPod nano Manually” on page 22. To reset iTunes to update iPod nano automatically with all songs and playlists: 1 Open iTunes and select iPod nano in the Source list. 2 Click the Options button and click Music. 3 Select “Automatically update all songs and playlists.” The download begins automatically.
if you need further assistance please let me know. Thanks, MIDWEst-tek

You just need to import your song into iTunes library, then make a playlist with the songs, plug in your iPod to computer, iTunes will detect the iPod automatically, then click iTunes menu "File -> Sync iPod", the songs will be transferred from iTunes to iPod.

Ipod touch wound sync to my computer. i had a nano first. when i tryed to sync my ipod touch i did not reg. to my computer, i just tryed to copy my music to the new ipod. my daughter shares our music from...

Open iTunes (without iPod connected). Create a new playlist and copy songs you want on your iPod into that list. Next connect your iPod. Once iTunes recognizes your iPod then go to the music tab and click on 'sync playlist only' and chose the new playlist that you created. Click sync. Only the songs in your new playlist should be copied to your iPod.

I pod Nano...

Two possible answers i found....

Are the playlists still on your computer? (This is the obvious question). If the songs have been moved on your computer or off of your computer, they'd need to be put back on and into iTunes.
If your songs are stored locally but the iPod is still not syncing, check to see if you have 'manually manage your own music' checked. If you do, it won't sync automatically, so make sure it's unchecked.
If that doesn't work, try turning on the 'Enable Disk Use' option in the preferences. If syncing still doesn't work, try ejecting (from within iTunes, *not* the Windows System Tray) and connecting again. If that still doesn't work, try enabling manual updating of songs, creating a playlist, and dragging it onto the ipod icon in iTunes.
I hope that helps. Let me know if it doesn't.

Other answer i got was 1. On the left menu bar in iTunes, go to your iPod (the thing will be called whatever you named your iPod)
2. Near the top of the screen, there will be tabs. Click on the second one that says 'Music'.
3. Now, make sure 'Sync Music' is checked and directly below it, make sure that 'All Songs and Playlists' is checked and NOT 'Selected Playlists'. Your iPod, if connected, should start downloading immediately.

Playing music on my ipod classic

I'm pretty sure you can't do this. At least, I haven't figured out how.

One thing you can do is make a playlist in itunes and drag several albums into it. Then your ipod can play the whole playlist. But this requires some forethought, since you have to set up the playlist on your computer.

Another thing you can do is create an on-the-go playlist right on your ipod. Here's how:

1. from the main menu, click music, then albums
2. scroll to the first album you want in your playlist
3. press and hold the center button until the highlight blinks. don't go into the album; you're pressing and holding on the name of the album
4. scroll to the next album you want in the playlist
5. repeat step 3 until you've got all the albums in your playlist that you want

Now, go to the main menu and press music, then playlists. Scroll all the way to the bottom and notice that you have a new playlist called on-the-go. If you go into it, you'll see that it has all the songs from all the albums you selected.

If you scroll past all the songs, you also have options to clear or permanently save the playlist.

Now you can play all those albums by selecting the playlist.

Again, it requires some setup, but it does enable you to play multiple albums without interruption. A nice side-effect of this method is that you can choose the order, whereas an automatic next album feature would play them in alphabetical order.

(FYI, you can add individual songs to an on-the-go playlist as well.)

And one final option: If you go to Music - albums - ALL, you can press play and it'll play your entire iPod in order. You can scroll to any song you want to start on, but you can't really scroll to the exact album you want to start on -- unless you know where to find the first song on that album.

I know that all three options are available in the latest iPod software. If something's not working for you, you may need to update your iPod's software through iTunes.
