The NANO is a buggy piece of ****. I've had TWO in the past 3 weeks... both malfunctioned. I ONLY use iTUNES, and my songs disappear spontaneously. Sometimes they show up, mostly they don't. When they do, the album covers are and song names are all totally wrong... like a michael jackson album cover, showing a billy joel song while a sting song plays. Gimme a break. before you (dej411) answer a question, how about asking for more info, or providing a respectful and thoughtful answer. Get bent.

Can I transfer my iPod photos to my ps3 system? If so how? Ive done clicked on every thing tryin to figure it out so, before I give up, can any one pleeease help :)


There are many ways in which you can put media onto your PS3, and although this is not a definitive guide on every single possible way, I will outline the most common ways one may put media onto your ps3!

*NOTE*
Im using the new Firmware, 1.90. I suggest you upgrade as well for maximum flexibility, and for consistency in this article.

I think that before showing you how to put media onto your PS3, you need to know what kind of files it will play, as only certain files can be played!

Pictures:
-JPEG (DCF 2.0/Exif 2.21 compliant)
-TIFF
-BMP
-GIF
-PNG

Music:
-Memory Stick Audio Format(ATRAC)
-MP3(MPEG-1/2 Audio Layer 3)
-MP4(MPEG-4 AAC)
-WAVE(Linear PCM)

*NOTE ON MUSIC*
If you have licenced MP3s, or any other kind of restricted material, then it most likely not play using the PS3s music software.

Video:
-Memory Stick Video Format
-MPEG-4 SP (AAC LC)
-H.264/MPEG-4 AVC Main Profile (AAC LC)
-MPEG-1 (MPEG Audio Layer 2)
-MPEG-2 PS (MPEG2 Audio Layer 2, AAC LC, AC3(Dolby Digital), LPCM)
-MPEG-2 TS (MPEG2 Audio Layer 2)

----------
Copy using Device
----------
Now that you know what kind of files the PS3 will play, it is safe to put them onto the PS3s HDD!

Transfering using a CD(Using Files), Memory Stick, Flash Drive(USB), SD Card External HDD*, iPod*, which will all be referred to as 'device':

It is important to know that you must(well, not sure if its a MUST, but it works better this way) have folder corresponding to what media you are transfering. For example, im going to transfer two songs, two pics, and two videos. So, on the device im using, I would make three different folders: Music, Pictures, Video. Understand? Great.

Now, once you have copied the media(files), and placed them into their corresponding folders, you can insert the device into the PS3. Switching to the PS3s OS(operating system), you can copy the media to your ps3 pretty easily, and its the same for pictures, music, and video. For my example I will use an SD Card as the device used to copy media:


Using anything but an external HDD or iPod:
1. Using the PS3 controller, find the appropriate tab (Music, Video, Photo).
2. Press the Down key until the device is shown. My device is a SD Card, so I will highlight it.
3. Press the triangle Button once it is highlighted, and select display all.
4. Press the X Button on the corresponding folder(Video for Videos, etc).
5. If copying more than 1 file, press the triangle button and press the up arrow on the controller until you highlight the 'Copy Multiple.' Press X. Now you can choose which media you wish to copy, or you can copy everything by pressing the right arrow, and choosing 'Select All' then Ok.
6. Watch as your media is copied to the PS3!

Using an iPod:
1. Locate the white USB cord that came with your iPod. In case you were wondering, thats also probably how you charge your iPod too. smile.gif
2. Connect the iPod to the PS3 using the USB Cord. Yes, you can do this.
3. Highlight the iPod using the controller, press Triangle. Then highlight display all and hit X.
4. Select iPod Control, Select the appropriate folder (music, Video, Pics), Hit X.
5. Hit the Triangle Button again, and select copy multiple. See step 5 above.

Using an HDD:
Ok, I admit, Ive never used an external HDD to copy anything to my PS3. But if you have read the steps above, I can almost guarantee you will have to hit Triangle, Display All, and then find where you put the stuff. Its important to be organized, so you should probably just have a folder that contains all music, all video, and all pics, broken down however way you like it. The steps to copy the media should all be the same as above. smile.gif

----------
Copy using "Search for Media Servers"
----------

Ok, this is a bit more complicated. The only way I know how to do this is using windows, so for everyone using linux, "Lawl." Im sure there are more ways to do this, im just showing you the way I figured it out. You *MUST* have a router to do this, or be on the same network as your PS3.

For demonstration purposes, I will use music for my example. This will also work with pictures and video


1. Transfer all media to the My Documents folder, and put them into the correct folders.
2. Load up PS3.
3. Goto Windows Media Player 11(If you dont have it, DL it), Library, then Media Sharing. Select "Unknown Device" and hit allow. **DO NOT** 'Allow new devices and computers automatically.' This will let any computer connect to yours, and probably will allow them to upload some nasty Virus'
4. Go back to your PS3, and now under Video, Music, or Picture tab and now select the thing with the Windows Icon. *Note: if there are more than one, then select the computer you want to retrieve your media from, ie yours.
5. Select Music. Hit X. Hit down until you highlight Folders, hit X. Goto my Music. If you wish to copy the whole folder, hit triangle and select copy multiple, the select all and copy. If you wish to only copy a few songs, select the My Music folder, hit x, then triangle, then highlight the song and hit copy.

I will try and make this as short as possible and hope you understand what I am asking. I just got an Ipod Classic last month and signed up with Itunes and then downloaded about 1300 songs from my cd...


You can't "backwards sync" (put music from your iPod back onto your computer) through iTunes. When you went to sync after you got your fixed computer back, I'm assuming iTunes tried to copy what was in iTunes (nothing) to your iPod, which probably is what caused these problems.

Assuming you still have the music on your iPod, I would recommend transferring the music from your iPod back to your computer (to a folder other than iTunes), restoring your iPod to factory settings, then moving all of the music files into iTunes and re-syncing your iPod.

There are two programs that are available to transfer songs from your iPod back onto your computer. The first is iDump and the second is YamiPod. I have found that iDump is the better of the two.
The link for iDump is:

Hope this helps!

My ipod a1137 is showing data but i am not able to play the song


Hi, your ipod displaying data and not playing might be because you did not transfer the music properly or the format of the music does not play on an ipod.

You will need a converter to help you convert songs into an ipod format. Download from the below link:

effectmatrix.com/total-video-converter/



You can follow the instruction below to know how to transfer music into an ipod.::

Most common problem for new ipod user is how to put music onto ipod. So I created this ipod tips to solve this problem. Windows media player is not able to upload songs to ipod. You must use Apple iTunes to get music onto your iPod. Windows Media Player can see the iPod as a hard disk. But not able to copy upload music from pc to ipod.

The steps to put music onto an Apple iPod with itune.
When you plug ipod to your pc first time through USB, you might get this pop up message. If you have already installed itune .


You need to restart your computer to install ipod and then the next time you start up, your iPod will not generate any messages of this nature.
You need to install itune on your computer if you have not installed itune. You can simply go to apple.com/itunes to download the latest version. It also comes with ipod CD.
The next step is to launch the iTunes program. And it will recognize the ipod that you have plugged in

It shows one message to give name to ipod, You can stick with the default name for your device or give name to ipod.
I also uncheck "automatically update music" because I like to control what happens to my iPod manually.
When you're done with this configuration step, click "Next" :
register your iPod, or just click "Finish".

Step 1

Now, finally, you can see iTunes and also your ipod inside your itune:
Click on whatever name you've given to your own iPod, and you'll see your music list, which is completely blank:



Now click on the "Library" link on the left column and you'll see what albums or music you've copied into your iTunes library. Or click on the "Browse" button on the top right (it looks like an all-seeing eye) and a new panel will show up with lists of songs, artists and albums.

Now select the song you want to put on to your ipod. then dragging and dropping that onto the name of the iPod on the left side panel of your itune. Now your song are copied to ipod.


Hope it helped.
Feel free to pass your comment.

Good luck..

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

You need to download songs in mp3 format as any music you take from a cd will have copyright in the tracks and will not play on your ipod.

Downloading


You need to use itunes as your music management software and ipod management software. You can download the latest itunes version at www.apple.com/itunes.

From here you can purchase items through the itunes music store, or add your own music by adding files from your computer, or putting a cd in your computer and coppying it into itunes so you can put the songs on your ipod.

Hope this helped,

Won't play the music copied from CD/Computer.


That was one cheap MP3 player. Can't you buy a larger iPod? What will you do with just 512MB? I have 2GB for RAM on my laptop computer.
