Question about Apple iPod nano

IPod and system recovery

After restoring data from a backup following a system recovery of Vista (32 bit), the iTunes playlists are intact but iTunes will not fetch the 12 gigs of music in the playlists from where all my music is stored in MP3 format on an external hard drive. Is there a process to have iTunes retreive the playlist songs from the external drive or would I be obligated to reload them one at a time into the playlists (ugh)? If I choose not to reload individual songs, can I still create new playlists for my iPod and just sync the new lists without wiping out the previous music on my iPod? I'm worried that any type of iPod sync will erase the songs not currently in the computer's iTunes library.

    I figured I could do it manually, but sometimes I don't trust myself and needed confirmation I wouldn't wipe out my music as soon as I connected.

When you syncronize it should show you all the songs then you should be able to save them individually or all at once , but ofcourse that will take a little while
but it should work fine
let me know if you need more help

    as long as you still have enough room then it shouldn't erase any of your playlists

  • jason Oct 26, 2008

    also you should be able to synchronize any play list on your ipod without erasing any other play list

How to get the lost voice memos back?


Once you delete something from a phone it's very difficult to retrieve (next to impossible actually) but their may be hope if you backed up your phone to iTunes you can go into iTunes at the main screen where it displays your phone info there will be a button to restore your phone to a previous backup (you may have to restore your phone to get the restore backup option to appear) a full tutorial can be found at the iTunes support page under backup restore PS: hopefully you backed up your phone before you trimmed your memos the backups are time stamped get-lost-voice-memos-back-ej152w01nlgpclw0bk1dfsma-1-0.png

How to restore my ipod nano 5 using itunes


To restore iPhone/iPad/iPod from iTunes backup, you should connect your iOS device (all types of iPhone/iPad/iPod are applicable, now take the iPhone as an example) with the computer which you have ever synced. Then you have two methods to enter the recovery window - "Restore from Back up".
Method 1 Click "File" menu on the menu bar and select Devices > Restore from Back up

Method 2 Click the "Devices" button on the left sidebar, then your connected device will be shown, and then click your device to show the Summary tab, and select Backups > This computer > Restore Backup...
restore-from-backup-using-itunes-method-2.jpg
After finishing either one of the two methods above, you will see a popped-up window - "Restore from Back up" and all the iTunes backups of different iOS devices you have ever done via iTunes will be listed in the drop-down menu. Then choose a backup of your iPhone to restore iPhone from iTunes backup.
itunes-restore-from-backup-window.jpgNote: The iPhone recovery in this way will restore the total file in the previous iTunes backup altogether, thus your current data on your iPhone will be deleted and replaced by the iTunes backup, which means you have lost all your current iPhone data.

To restore information from a backup, use one of the following methods after connecting your iOS device to the computer with which you normally sync:
1. Right-click (or Control-click) the device and choose Restore from Backup
2. If you have a new phone, you can connect to iTunes and it will prompt to restore from your backup

How can I recover accidentally voice memos from iPhone 3G


When you lose your voice memos in your iPhone, they can have a look at your iTunes first, maybe you've synced the voice memos to iTunes, and the voice memos can be found in iTunes folder. If not, you may need to restore your iPhone with iTunes to recover deleted voice memos. If you have updated your iPhone backup in iTunes, you will save the voice memos in iTunes backup as well, so you are able to get the lost voice memos back with iTunes.
recover-accidentally-voice-memos-from-oxaxc0rwhkhzilrwacqreyis-3-0.jpg When the restoring process is done, you will get the backup contents in your iPhone. The voice memos should have been restored to your iPhone as well. However, as is known, there is chance that the iPhone users will lose the newly added data in their device if they haven't updated their backup. At this moment, you will need a piece of iPhone data recovery software to recover deleted voice memos from iPhone backup.

How to restore an iPod


If you have a backup before, go onto iTunes, right click on your device on the left-hand side bar, and their should be an option 'Restore From Backup', or something similar, click that and it'll restore your iPod to a previous backup.

iPod Data Recovery software can help you, it enables you preview and recover all contents from the iTunes' backup file, including your iPod photos, videos, notes, calendar and contacts.

How can I restore data accidentally deleted from my iPhone?


if you have synced your iPhone to iTunes on a computer before and have not synced it after you deleted your data, you can get it back. But iTunes can't help.

You need to get a third party iPhone data recovery software like Tenorshare iTunes Data Recovery, which helped me recover deleted data from iPhone 4s before.

You can get it from http://www.any-data-recovery.com/product/itunes-data-recovery.htm
