Question about Apple iPod nano

1 Answer

I-pod i just updated i-tunes to the latest version (from 7.0 to 8.0) but now my library is gone from i-tunes but all the music is still in my i-pod. I have a 8gb Nano. If I want to sync using the newer version, it will erase all the music on my i-pod b/c there are no songs in the library. I can't even add new songs, it tells me that my i-pod is already synced to another library and syncing it to the empty one will erase all the songs on it. Any ideas?

Your library needs to be rebuilt to version 8.0 before ITunes will work. Once the database is rebuilt, your songs will reappear in Itunes for use.

Give Itunes the library that your files are in using the folder options. Itunes will rebuild the library off of those settings.

Backup your purchased songs asap.

I pod is disabled


1. Manual reset by Home key + Down Volume key, this can fix many general iPod problems.
2. You may try this iTunes alternative, I always use it to upload music and video to my iPod once my iTunes can't recognize my iPod, my friends recommend it to me, it's safe and works pretty well, you can also use it to copy music and video from ipod to computer for backup, it's useful when you lost your iTunes library.

3. Update your iTunes to the latest version. Plug in your iPod. If iTunes can't recognize it, then in iTunes in the top left corner click help> run diagnostics. On the box that comes up, check the last two things. Click next and it should identify your iPod. I got this method from Apple technical support. Hope it helps. Contact me if you have any other question. 4. Take the iPod to Apple store, the technical support will help you fix the problem.

My I-pod nano 2G won't sync!!


download the latest version of itunes from http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/ (your music will be saved within the itunes music folder already). Once it has loaded okay close the itunes program. Turn your ipod on and plug it into your computer. This will automatically open up itunes. Reset your ipod within itunes under your ipod settings. Then update your ipod with your chosen library or playlist.

Hope this helps.

I pod wont sync /missing file


I think you may have some how deleted you itunes library file. It's default location is:
C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\My Documents\My Music\iTunes\iTunes Library.itl
the file is called "iTunes Library.itl"
You can delete the whole itunes file but all of you music may be deleted.
Good luck and i hope this somehow helps.

Grays songs in ipod when connected to Computer


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!

20GB IPOD


maybe...perhaps try changing your itunes setting

to
"manually update ipod" if it is set to autosync then all tunes in the library which are registered as being on the pod will automatically update. each time you connect the pod the itunes sw will update the pod from the library.

when the pod is connected and auto sync is active if you delete a tune from the lib it will update the pod and delete the same tune.

Can not sync with itunes


If you still have all that music on your computer then just update itunes first then update the I-pod. if you don't you are going to have to use an after market program to pull the music from the iPod to your computer first then add it to itunes.
This happens when the original library is lost in itunes or when you install a fresh copy of itunes on your computer.
