After installing Itunes on my computer, have noticed my computer has slowed right down, any theory's on this ? Also music installed on my new ipod from My Music files sounds very tinny. Has anyone else...

iTunes is horrible, horrible audio software.
It is likely your computer has slowed down because by its default settings, iTunes 'helps' you by reorganizing all your music into an incomprehensible directory structure only apple products can use. It will also re-encode your .mp3 files into apple's format to make it even less likely you will listen to your music on a competitor mp3 product.

For best results with your ipod, review all your iTunes settings. Tell iTunes:
  1. to manually manage the music on your ipod
  2. not to reorganize your library
  3. not to reencode your music files
  4. to encode new music files in .mp3 format, joint stereo, at 96K or 128K sampling frequency.

I hope that helps.

I put the music on my computer and plug in my ipod it should sync but it doesn't

I thnk u shud restore your ipod to factory setting using itunes. Several reason may have caused your itunes to crash.Maybe u disconnected your ipod before it has completed to sync your music and or your ipod might be affected with a virus. you better restore it to avoid further disapointments. I have an ipod i have experienced such problems. The only risk is you are going to loose the current songs in your ipod

How to transfer new music to my ipod without deleting the existing one

You have to use a software to retrieve all your music in ITunes.

The best is CopyTrans :

So first backup your iPod with CopyTrans.

Secondly accept to wipe your iPod with iTunes. Sync it with iTunes and all your music will be back on your iPod.

After that, the message alert will disappear

Music on iPod stops randomly and skips to next song

turn every program but itunes off. your firewall is interrupting your sync. close all programs or turn off your anti-virus and firewall so nothing can interrupt. keep me posted with results.

How can I take music off and put new music on

The music that is on any mp3 player is a copy of what you have stored in the library of your computer music software so if you want to delete a song from your mp3 player you have to delete it on the computer then syncronise. This is the same if you want new music, you have to add to your library first. You cannot delete music using any of the controls on the actual mp3 player.

From Support Website. If the front status light on your iPod shuffle blinks orange and green when you press any button, then your iPod shuffle is experiencing some type of error. Try these troubleshooting steps to resolve the problem. To troubleshoot the iPod shuffle error light: 1. Turn off your iPod shuffle 2. Wait a few seconds 3. Turn your iPod shuffle back on again If this does not resolve the problem: 1. Check to make sure there are songs on your iPod shuffle 2. Use iTunes to add songs to iPod shuffle and try again If your iPod shuffle continues to display a blinking orange and green light, use iPod Updater 2005-02-11 or later to restore iPod shuffle, and then add songs with iTunes. If your iPod shuffle still shows a blinking orange and green light after trying all of the above steps, your iPod shuffle may need service. Best of Luck.
