Then check for any updates.

My ipod model A1199 doesn't play mp3 songs.


MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto yourcomputer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3player.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player willcreate a MP3 music file for each music track.

Cannot play most music and also indicating invalid file format, open fail, decode error what should i do and can i make it play musics when copied onto de ipod


Most times, people often make the mistake of copying music files direct to the memory of the ipod device.
If you do this, you might be able to detect the songs but your ipod will not play the songs as it may not recognize their format.
For you to copy music files to your ipod, you would need to download the itunes program and install it to your computer.
With this installed, you can connect your ipod to your computer and open itunes. It would be displayed under your itunes program and you can then copy your music files using itunes by dragging them and dropping them on the name of your ipod as it is shown on the left hand side of the itunes program.
If after doing this, you still have the same problem, you can use your itunes to format the ipod and put the songs afresh.
Hope this helps you? Please comment for more information

How to play mp3 song from my computer to ipod shuffle wihout using itunes?


You may try this ipod transfer, it's a nice iTunes alternative that can help you manage iPod files including delete, upload, play, copy, etc. It's much easier to use than iTunes. It can also help you manage multiple iPods on one computer or manage iPod on multiple computers, even copy music and video from iPod back to computer or iTunes. So you will not lose your iPod files even though you switch to a new iTunes library. My friends recommend it to me, it works pretty well.

I have an ipod classic 160Gb it is really slow, when I press any of the keys it takes ages to respond. sometimes it takes about 5 seconds to get back to the menu


Your iPod's disk is probably badly defragmented. This happens naturally with time; the files which contain your songs and videos are broken up in parts and located in various parts of the disk. Your iPod needs to search all over your disk to get file information, taking longer than it would if your files each were made up of one part.

To defragment your iPod's disk, do the following:

1) Make sure all your iPod's music and videos are also on your computer, and in iTunes.

2) Connect your iPod to your computer, and run iTunes.

3) Click on your iPod on the left side of iTunes, then click on the "Restore" button in the middle of iTunes.

4) Wait for your iPod to finish restoring, then click on the "Sync" button to copy all your songs and videos back to your iPod.

Friends ipod through my macbook ...


There's no way to play music on an iPod without the music being on the iPod already. You would need to copy the music over, and then play it. You can do so by allowing hidden folders to be viewed, and then going into the ipod_control file -> music -> f01-f49 in your ipod. The unfortunate thing is: The files are in no particular order, and have only four letter names. Good Luck.
