You most likely have to restore your ipod to it's original settings by clicking on the restore button on the main ipod screen under itunes, and after it is restored, it should work normally.

Hi,

Syncing the music to the mac OS10 is much easy please follow the steps below:

Syncing music and podcasts automatically Connect iPod to your computer and open iTunes.
Select iPod in the Devices section on the left side of the iTunes window

Select the option to Sync Music.

You have the option to sync all songs and playlists or selected playlists. Your iPod will need to have enough free space to sync the content that you have selected from your library. Tip: You can use the capacity bar at the bottom of the iPod settings window to determine how much free space is available. The size of a playlist can be determined by selecting it and looking at the bottom of the iTunes window.

Podcasts can also be automatically synced to iPod. Select the Podcasts tab and choose to sync all podcasts or selected ones. You can also determine which episodes are synced based on if they are recent, new, or unplayed

Click Apply and iTunes will begin syncing the audio content you've selected to your iPod. The iTunes LCD will display the sync progress and notify you when the iPod sync is complete

  1. To disconnect your iPod, select it under Devices and click the eject icon next to it.
Syncing music manually If you prefer not to automatically sync music content to your iPod, you can set up manual syncing.

Connect your iPod to your computer and open iTunes.
Select iPod in the Devices section on the left side of the iTunes window


75b22af.jpg
In the main iTunes browser window, select the Summary tab.
Select the option to "Manually manage music and videos" or "Manually manage music." This will deselect the automatic sync settings for the Music, Movies, and TV Shows tabs. Automatic syncing for Podcasts, Photos, Contacts, and Games can be individually disabled by selecting those options in each of those tabs. Note: When manually managing iPod, disk use is enabled and iPod must always be manually ejected in iTunes before disconnecting it from your computer
Click Apply.

To manually add music, audiobooks, movies or TV shows to your iPod, choose one of these categories under Library on the top-left of the iTunes window.

Select and drag items you want (to choose multiple items, Command-click items on a Mac or Control-click items in Windows), then drag them onto your iPod icon under Devices.

To add a playlist, select it from the left side of the iTunes window and drag it onto your iPod in the same way.

How do i set up my ipod for music


First you'll need iTunes, download it here. Once this is done plug your iPod into your computer, iTunes will prompt you to go through a quick and easy set up for your iPod, once this is done you can start importing songs from other media players such as Windows Media Player, or you import songs from CDs.
Hope this helps!

Can't play songs on ipod through computer when i connect my ipod everythings fine, i can sync songs etc. but if i go to my ipod tab and try n play the songs they are just greyed out... is it something to...


This simply means that the iPod is in Auto sync mode. To be able to listen to your music on your iPod through iTunes you will need to change the settings on the summary page that loads when you first connect the iPod. You want to deselect the Automatically sync all checked items, then select the Manually manage option. After that click Apply. You will now be able to listen to the songs on the iPod though iTunes, but the iPod will no longer auto sync to your computer.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Adding content on your computer to iTunes
iTunes lets you add digital audio and video files on your computer directly to your iTunes library. You can add audio files that are in AAC, MP3, WAV, AIFF, Apple Lossless, or Audible.com (.aa) format. If you have unprotected WMA content, iTunes for Windows can convert these files to one of these formats. Video content in QuickTime or MPEG-4 format can also be added to iTunes. To learn how to add these files to iTunes follow the steps below.
Open iTunes From the File menu, choose one of the following choices: Mac Add to Library Windows Add File to Library Add Folder to Library Navigate to and select the file or folder that you want to add If iTunes is set to "Copy files to the iTunes Music folder when adding to library", iTunes will copy all content that is added to the iTunes library to the iTunes Music folder. Then adjust this setting or change the location of this folder, go to the Advanced tab in iTunes preferences.

IPOD how to move music


hi,

Follow these steps it will help you to copy music to pc


Open iTune

confirm that your iPod is configured to enable disk use. Essentially this means that your new computer will recognize your iPod as a USB device device or a external drive.
Step2
Enable disk use if necessary. Connect your iPod to your old computer and open iTunes. When iTunes has loaded, select your iPod and display "Preferences" in the main window.
Step3
Click on the "Summary" tab and select "Manually Manage Music." You should see a check mark in the box next to "Enable Disk Use." If you don't see it, then just check that box yourself. An alert will display informing you'll now need to manually unmount the iPod as well as ejecting it in iTunes before disconnecting it from the computer.
Step4
Hit "OK" and click "Apply Preferences."
Consolidate Music
Step1
Move all your music to one place to make the transfer easier.
Step2
Navigate to the iTunes Preferences menu. In Windows, this menu is located in the Edit menu, while on a MAC it's simply it's own menu.
Step3
Go to the "Advanced" tab, then "General." Check the box next to "Copy Files to iTunes Music Folder When Adding to Library" and click "OK." iTunes will copy all of your music to the hard drive of your computer. This shouldn't be a problem unless you don't have enough disk space.
Step4
Go to the "Advanced" tab and then "Consolidate Library." Read the message that warns you that this step will place all your music in the iTunes folder and that it can't be reversed. Click "Consolidate."
Determine Storage Capacity
Step1
Make sure there's enough space on your iPod to hold the iTunes music files. In essence, you will be using your iPod as an external storage drive to bring your iTunes library to the new computer. Without a large enough storage capacity, this can't be completed.
Step2
Determine how much space is available by opening iTunes on your old computer and checking the size of the library. Click on "Music" and make note of the amount of space your library takes up. Then connect your iPod, click on it in iTunes and note the amount of free space indicated at the bottom of the pane.
Step3
Calculate to make sure that the amount of available space on your iPod is greater than the space required by the iTunes library. If not, you'll need to free up some space.
Step4
Free up space by clicking on your iPod in the Source pane and then clicking on "Music" or otherwise navigating to the contents of your iPod. Click on any song in the main library window and go to "Edit, then "Select All."
Step5
Be prepared to lose any music not contained by your iTunes library if you haven't been updating automatically, because that music isn't on your computer and will be deleted. However, if you've been updating, there's no need to worry. Press your keyboard's "Delete" button and click "Yes" when you receive the confirmation message.
Copy and Backup
Step1
Exit from iTunes and locate both your iPod and your iTunes folder. On a Mac, the iPod should be visible on the desktop and the folder is "/Users/username/Music." In Windows, the iPod is located in "My Computer" and the folder is "\Documents and Settings\username\My Documents\My Music\." Drag the folder to the iPod and wait patiently as the data transfers.
Step2
Copy your iTunes folder to your iPod. Drag the folder to the iPod and wait patiently as the data transfers. When it's done, eject the iPod from iTunes and disconnect the iPod.
Step3
. Connect your iPod to your new computer and backup any music that's in your new iTunes library. Go to "Preferences," "Advanced" then "Reset." Click "OK." Then navigate to "Advanced," "Consolidate Library" and click "Consolidate."
Step4
Copy your music to your new computer. Locate the Music folder on your new computer--it will have the same name as on the old computer--and drag the iTunes folder from it to the desktop. Find your iPod, double-click to open it and drag the iTunes folder copied from your old computer to the new computer's iTunes folder.
Step5
Wait as the music is copied to the folder and then open iTunes. The music and all of its accompanying information should sync without problem.
