Re: after switch on the ipod ''system files missing'' msg...
Go to http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/ download the latest version of itunes, it will have all the necessary drivers for your ipod. Once itunes is installed onto your pc and opens up, close the program, then plug your ipod into the pc, this will automatically open itunes and your ipod will be picked up allowing you to download you music etc...
I hope this helps

you would have formatted your player in windows.never format your player in windows.just insert your driver cd and press on the recovery option and follow the onscreen instruction your problem will be rectified.after recovering,safely remove your ipod from computer and again restart.then start transfer the mp3 by connecting to comp u will be able to see the music files after unplugging frm system.for further details call me at 09488561892.
Hi, Your music is probably in the wrong format or the individual files are corrupted in some way. If the same songs are skipped everytime, delete those songs. Check the format on them by right clicking on them and selecting 'properties'. Check to see if they are formatted in MP3 format or a format that the iPod can play. If you ripped them from a CD, they will be in AAC format which takes up more room on your iPod.
When you rip a CD into iTunes, you can choose what format to rip it as. Try it. Hope that works.
you should have a driver installed on your computer that allows you to sync the computer to the Ipod using the USB port. just upload the the files to the computer .this should should clear the files from the I pod. if you installed a update in your Ipod then you have to install an update for the driver to the computer as well. Sometimes windows media player has trouble with certain players and formats. if it is a format problem, that means you do not have the right codec so the computer can't read the file a window should pop up and allow you to download the right codec. you can also try using a different player on the computer like rhapsody or jukebox often times there are less problems with this program.. good luck please rate this...thanks
Please note that you may not have a genuine Apple iPod. iPods don't have hourglasses, and don't say MP3 or MP4 Player on them. The cable should also go into the player via a wide flat plug. To check to see if you have a genuine ipod, put your serial number into https://selfsolve.apple.com/GetWarranty.do .
That said, You may want to try formatting the player. Your Firmware could be corrupted. If it works with itunes, click restore. Otherwise, right click the drive in my computer and select Format.
Make sure the songs are in the correct format. Make sure the songs are not AAC, WAV, streaming, or some other non-supported format
Mp3 players are more complicated than ever. This player may only accept DRM-encrypted WMA files. I would first check the songs that you have downloaded to make sure they did not have "temporary" licenses with a fixed end date. You can do this by right clicking on an individual song, clicking on properties, and selecting the "license," "digital rights mgmt" or "media usage rights" tab - the wording varies by configuration. It will give you info on the license. If the song says that it has no license, it will not work with this player. One remedy is to use mp3 converter software to convert all of those wma files to Mp3's - I don't know of any free ones, but you can certainly look for free Mp3 Converters. Another remedy on unlicensed songs is to hit the "acquire license" link in the license tab, if one exists.
