A can't download music to my ipod its a new computer.i can see that my ipod is connected bot i can't download music onto it.why is this?


An iPod can be synced with only one iTunes library at a time. once you got a new iTunes library or a new computer. You have to authorize your iPod to it at first, then you can upload music and video from the new iTunes to your iPod. But this way will overwrite the originial files on iPod with the new iTunes. You may try this iPod transfer, it can help you copy files from iPod to computer for backup, you can also use it as an iTunes alternative to upload music and video. It will not erase your original iPod files. It's safe and works pretty well for me. http://www.ipod-transfer-copy.com/ipod-transfer-mediawidget.html

How to Copy songs from your iPod to your PC in Windows XP/Vista/7 and Mac



-- Connect the iPod with your PC. Close iTunes if it opens up automatically after connecting iPod.

-- Go to Control Panel-> portable Media Devices/devices and printers-> Double click on your iPod or right click and select "Browse Files" option.

-- Navigate to the iPod_control folder/Music Folder.

-- Select all the folders over there and copy all the folders and paste it on your hard drive or directly into iTunes. If nothing is visible then go to Control Panel -> folder options -> View Tab-> Show hidden file/folder/drives.

-- The iPod music folder structure is very strange, however if you copy the folder content into iTunes you can arrange/organize the music files by selecting "Keep iTunes Music Folder organized". You can do this by in iTunes Edit menu-> Preferences -> Advanced tab-> check Keep iTunes Music Folder organized.


Copying Music using Software--

There are some software's that are available that can be used to copy the selective items from your iPod. There are a few softwares that can be used to do this, they are-

Sharepod,
Anapop CopyGear (formerly anapod copygear),
Expod,
iPod Disk.

These softwares are available for both Windows & Mac. And, can be used to copy selective or all the data from your iPod including Photos, Videos and other data.

Please feel free to post back for any more details.

Music videos cant put them in ipod


step1
Locate videos. There are four main places where you can find legal videos intended for iPod use. The iTunes store (where videos can be directly downloaded) and video podcasts are certainly the most popular, but digital copies from DVDs as well as personal digital videos can also be put on the device.
  • Step 2 Import your videos into iTunes. If you have downloaded the videos from iTunes or have downloaded a video podcast from the service, this step has been done for you (as well as step 3), and you can proceed to step 4. However, if you are trying to put digital copies, or personal videos on the iPod, put all of the videos in a central folder on the desktop. Go to iTunes and select the "Add file to iTunes" to import the contents of your folder to the iTunes program.
  • Step 3 Convert non-iTunes files. iPods only work with MPEG-4 videos, so if you are uploading videos of other formats, such as AVI or WMV, they will need to be converted with the iTunes program. Highlight the videos you need to convert and right-click to pull up a sub-menu. Select "convert" to begin the process. Alternately, you can drag the files into the iTunes conversion queue, which is on the right side of the program. You will see a notice when your files are finished converting.
  • Step 4 Sync your iPod. When your new video files are ready, simply plug your iPod Classic into a USB port and then drag the video files you wish to put on your device over the iPod icon. The icon will then change to "syncing" status. Wait a few minutes while the videos are transferred. Once the icon has changed back to normal, simply press the eject button and unplug your iPod.

  • i recomend the arcsoft media converter 3 for a starter converter it will work just fine for 15 days

    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.

    IVE JUST BOUGHT A LAPTOP,IVE GOT MY ITUNES ON IT AND IT WONT LET ME COPY ANY OF MY MUSIC ONTO DISC.


    are you trying to copy music onto a cd disk or onto your ipod. If you are trying to copy music onto your ipod, you will have to clear the ipod of the music that was loaded onto it previously, because it will not detect your new settings on your laptop. An easy way to do this is copy over your itunes music folder onto cd/dvd from your old computer and paste the music into your itunes music folder on your laptop. When you open itunes go to file, import file, and choose your itunes music folder. (If it hasn't aready automatically picked the music up). This will put all of your music back into the itunes library. You will then need to create another playlist for your ipod. Reset your ipod in itunes mode and upload your new playlist onto it. If you have vista on your laptop then you may need to download the lastest version of itunes. You can do that by going here> http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/

    I have a new computer and dont want to lose all my songs currently on my Ipod


    probably not but you can look here, it is a free download and will enable you to export your ipod data into itunes, so you will not lose it. Then you can sync your ipod again once you have refreshed your library with new songs that you want

    How can i put video on my 60GB ipod ? whenever i try it says that my ipod does not compatible with the videos


    Hey laceyhebert,

    You should be able to load movies onto your iPod either automatically or manually through iTunes, but remember that the files need to be in MPEG4 format in order for iPod to recognize them.

    Whether you choose to automatically or manually load files, the first few steps are the same:

    1) Connect your iPod to your computer.

    2) Select the iPod icon when it appears in the iTunes window.

    3) Click on the "Summary" tab.

    If you want to load the files manually, select the "Manually manage music and video" option. Once you've done this, you can drag-and-drop the video files you want to transfer from iTunes to your iPod.

    Should you want to transfer them automatically instead, make sure that the "Manually manage music and video" option is not selected and press the "Sync movies" option.

    Hope this helps you out.

    Sincerely,
    Aaron

    Connecting ipod to a new laptop


    You can actually (or could have) transfer the songs from your
    Laptop & iPod by using you iPod like a removable
    Hard Disk Drive

    Here is the Apple sanctioned method:

    Note: While you can use the Transfer Purchase From iPod option under the File menu to copy iTunes Store purchases from the iPod to another computer you can't transfer songs from other sources from the iPod library to iTunes

    So you'll need to follow the steps below to use iPod as a hard disk to transfer music files from one computer to another. This process will require the use of iTunes 7 on all computers. Any computers running iTunes 6 or earlier will need to be updated to follow these steps.

    Once you have the files transferred, you'll need to authorize any iTunes Store content. If you won't be using your old computer, you'll want to deauthorize it.

    Important: Windows operating systems don't recognize Mac OS-formatted disks (HFS or HFS Plus formats), so you can't use a Mac-formatted iPod to move your music to a Windows PC.
    Switch the iPod to manual update and enable disk use The first thing you need to do is make sure have configured your iPod to enable disk use. To do this:
    1. Open iTunes on your old computer.
    2. Connect your iPod to your old computer and wait for it to appear in iTunes.
    3. Select your iPod in the Source pane under the Devices section to display your iPod preferences in the main library window.
    4. Click the Summary tab in the main iTunes window.
    5. Click the Manually manage music button. Changing from automatic updating to manual puts a check mark by Enable disk use. A message says:
    "Disabling automatic update requires manually unmounting the iPod before each disconnect."

    If you need to copy from old computer:
    Copy iTunes folder to iPod To copy all your music files (including the library file that holds all your playlists and other settings) to your iPod:
    1. Quit iTunes.
    2. Locate your iPod:
      Mac OS X: On the desktop
      Windows: In My Computer
    3. Locate your iTunes folder:
      Mac OS X: /Users/username/Music
      Windows: \Documents and Settings\username\My Documents\My Music\
    4. Drag the iTunes folder to the iPod. This can take a while if you have a lot of songs.

    OR

    • When the copy completes open iTunes.
    • Click on the iPod in the Source pane
    • Click the Eject button in the lower right corner of the iTunes window.
    • Disconnect the iPod from the computer when the "Do not disconnect" message no longer appears on the iPod screen.
    Now:
    Copy music to new computer To copy all your music files (including the library file that holds all your playlists and other settings) to your new computer:
    1. Locate your Music folder (Mac OS X) or your My Music folder (Windows) on your new computer:
      Mac OS X: /Users/username/Music
      Windows: \Documents and Settings\username\My Documents\My Music\
    2. Drag the iTunes folder in this location out to the desktop. 300173_10.gifFrom the My Music folder to the Desktop on your new PC
    • Locate the iPod on the new computer:
    • Mac OS X: On the desktop.
    • Windows: In My Computer.
    • Double-click on the iPod to open it.
    • Drag the iTunes folder from the iPod to the Music folder (Mac OS X) or My Music Folder (Windows) on your new computer. This can take a while if you have a lot of songs.
    • Open iTunes
      There you go. All your music, playlists, and other information like play counts and ratings have all been moved from your old computer to your new one.
    If that doesn't cover it fully..... wow!
