I cant get my music of my ipod nano onto my new netbook? i HAVE A NEW NETBOOK WHICH IS WINDOWS 7 AND I CANT TRANSFER MY MUSIC OFF MY IPOD NANO 4GB ONTO MY NETBOOK?

iDevices (iPod, iPhone, etc) usually can only be managed through iTunes. So the first thing you should do is install iTunes (you can download it off Apple's website).

After installing iTunes and connecting your iPod, you must open My Computer then double click your iPod's icon. Then, click on Tools, Options, and in the View tab check the "Show hidden files and folders" option. You should then see an "iPod_Control" folder. Inside it there'll be a "Music" folder, with all your songs. Just drag them back to your computer.

But remember: you can only manage your iPod's music through iTunes. If you add or change songs on your iPod without using iTunes, these songs won't be recognized.

Cannot load music from windows media onto my ipod nano

As far as I have always known, you need to use iTunes in order to sync your music to the iPod. The firs thing you'll want to do is to make sure you know where all of your music files are located (i.e., the folders they are in). After you install iTunes, you will need to add your songs to the iTunes library. To do this, open iTunes, click on the 'File' tab at the top left, then click on 'Add Folder to Library.' Then proceed to finding your folder. It makes it a lot easier if you group them all together into one folder. This isn't necessary, but if you are short on time or impatient, it works wonders. Alternatively, you can drag and drop the files into the library. Just click a file or folder, drag it into the library space (the song list under music), and let go of the mouse button. After syncing your music to iTunes, connect your iPod and it should either connect right away or ask you if you want to update the firmware. If the latter appears, accept the update. Afterwards, if during the setup you decided to allow iTunes to manage your iPod's syncing options (advisable, though you can change it later if you decide against it), it automatically sync your music to the iPod. Also, for reference, whatever is in your iTunes library will be synced to your iPod. It creates a mirror image. The download for the iTunes setup is in the link below. Also on the page is a link to tutorials to show you how to make the most out of your music going experience. Have fun with your new iPod!

Ipod to pc music play

You can only transfer music from an ipod to a computer if they were purchased through itunes.

If that's the case, right click on your ipod's name under devices. Then click Transfer music.

Not synching correctly with itunes music folder

I know another way you could try formatting which may fix this problem. Restoreing just restores all the setting to your iPod yes it shoudl format as well but it may not due to an error or something.

To do try it another way follow these steps, first click on "Start" - "My Computer" look for you iPod when it's connect usually called "Removable Disk" once you've found it "Right-click" on it then click on "Format", once format is complete disconnect, then connect it again then run "Update" for your iPod and for iTunes, once you've done that have another attempt.

Good luck. Hope my solution was helpful in some way. Further problems leave a comment and i will get back to you.
