How to run my ipod on mycomputer


You can easily use an iPod on a computer without iTunes. While iTunes is the program typically associated with the iPod, there are others that can work with your iPod to do whatever it is you want to do. One such program is Winamp, which can be downloaded for free online (see Resources). You can also access your iPod's files without any software at all.

www.readingfanatic.com Step 1 Connect your iPod to your computer using a USB cord.
Step 2 Click the "Start" menu, and select "My Computer."
Step 3 Double-click the drive that contains your iPod. It typically has iPod in the drive name, such as "WILLIE'S IPOD."
Step 4 Click the "Tools" menu, and select "Folder Options," then choose the "View" tab. Click the circle next to "Show hidden files and folders," and click "Apply," then "OK." A folder called "iPod_Control" will now appear.
Step 5 Double-click the "iPod_Control" folder. You are now looking at your iPod's hard drive. From here you can click the "Music" folder, which will contain several folders with names such as "F00" and so on. These hold the music files from your iPod. You can copy and paste them onto your hard drive and open them in other music programs. If you'd like to control your iPod in another digital music player, continue on with the following step.
Step 6 Open Winamp. Your iPod will show up in the "Portables" list, which is located in the menu on the left side of the player. From here you can control your iPod just like you can in iTunes. You can sync, add, delete, rename files and more. Sponsored Links

Can I sync two different iPods to the same computer


1. The automatic settings in iTunes and iPods will not allow you to sync two iPods with one version of iTunes or sync an iPod with multiple versions of iTunes without the content being completely erased from the iPod. 2. This can be very aggravating if more than one person in your household owns an iPod or you want to add music from a friend's iTunes library to your iPod. Changing the iPod settings through iTunes will let you sync more than one iPod on one computer.

3. Open the iTunes software. Connect one of the two iPods to a USB port found on the one computer. If a small window opens in iTunes after the program recognizes the iPod, you can close the window by clicking "No" or the "X" in the window. 4. Click the name of the iPod positioned under "Devices" on the left side of iTunes. When you highlight the iPod name, a variety of tabs will appear at the top of the iTunes program. 5. Choose the "Summary" tab and options will be listed in the middle of the program. Select the option labeled "Manually manage music and videos." If a window opens, click "OK." 6. Click "Apply" in the bottom right corner to change the settings on the plugged in iPod. Leave iTunes open. Repeat steps 2-6 with the second iPod you want to sync on the one computer.

I just bought it and can't set it up?


The iPod Shuffle is one of the smallest MP3 players available. But with no screen and no buttons it is easy to see why you may find it difficult to use and, indeed, set up. In order to set the iPod Shuffle up, the first and most important thing that you should have is the latest version of iTunes running on your computer. Once you have this, and have followed a few steps, setting up the iPod Shuffle is really not too challenging.

Connect to the Internet and download the latest version of iTunes from the iTunes website. http://www.apple.com/uk/itunes/download/ Plug your iPod into your computer's USB port using the USB lead provided with your iPod Shuffle. Create a name for your iPod and type it into the "Name" box in the iPod setup window that appears on your screen. Check, or leave blank depending on how you wish to manage your iPod, the check boxes next to "Automatically sync songs to my iPod" and "Enable VoiceOver" below the "Name" box on the screen. Click on the "Done" tab in the bottom right of the screen when you have finished. Leave "Automatically sync songs to my iPod" unchecked and import songs manually by clicking on the "Music" header in the left-hand column and dragging the songs you want on your iPod into your named iPod file in the left hand-column, underneath "Devices." Alternatively, click in the "Music" tab and sync your songs by checking the boxes by specific artists, playlists and genres. Click on the "Apply" button in the bottom right-hand corner once you have chosen your settings. Click on the "Sync" tab in the bottom right corner when you have selected the music you wish to add if you have decided to add songs manually. Eject your iPod by clicking on the upward-pointing arrow to the right of your iPod's symbol underneath the "Devices" header on the left-hand side of the screen once it has finished syncing. Unplug your USB lead when the "OK to Disconnect" bar has finished loading at the top of the screen. Hope it 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..

I have a new Ipod touch and I can receive emails on RR but cannot send or forward emails on RR. I would appreciate a step-by-step guide to set-up RR for sending email or forwarding emails....


Try this...
1) On your Ipod Touch select "Settings." 2) Select "Mail, Contacts, Calendars." 3) Under Accounts select your "Lwilson22@satx.rr.com" account. 4) Under the "Outgoing Mail Server" heading select "SMTP." 5) Under "Primary Server" it should indicate ""RR SMTP Sever" (or something to that effect)  - If so, make sure that the "Server" is switched to the "On" position.  (If it was originally switched off then switching it on should do the trick.
 - If not, continue to Step 6. 6) On the "SMTP" page select "Add Server..." 7) Fill out the fields accordingly.  If you are unsure of the information check with you service provider (in this case Road Runner).  - In most cases it would likely be "smtp.rr.com," plus you own "User Name" and "Password." 8) Select "Save"

Can not hook up my ipod


You need to download iTunes and create a library. Once you have iTunes installed...follow these steps.

  1. Add music to your hard drive by inserting CD's into your computer. When you put in a CD it may ask you to import the music into your library, or you may have to click the button on the lower right that says import music. iTunes generally finds the song titles and CD name by itself, but if the CD is obscure or a local band you may have to type it yourself.
  2. iTunes will automatically add the music you took from the CD to your library.
  3. You can also add music you may already have on your computer by going to File> Add file to library or File> Add folder to library. Once you have added all of the music you want to put on the shuffle, go to step 4.
  4. You can now plug in your iPod. iTunes should recognize the iPod pretty quickly. You will see it under a tab on the left called devices. Once it finds the iPod, you should be able to select music from your library and drag it directly to the Shuffle.
  5. You can click on the iPod's icon in the left side column and do several different things. But mainly I would just use it to see how much space you have left for your music.
It's as easy as that! Comment on this post if you need more help.

Apple Ipod 20gb re-set problem


My ipod did this. That symbol means corrupted files which probably means you need to format your ipod. Mine also continued to freeze which is caused by a slightly warped harddrive. Open it up by prying loose the edges w/ a guitar pick or butter knife, take a business card and fold it in half and place it between the HDD and the foam to add pressure to the HDD. Should fix your problem.
