Question about Apple iPod shuffle MP3 Player

Itunes download will only go to F drive

I have bought a new shuffle for my daughter. I already have a nano so have itunes on the computer. I have tried downloading itunes again but it keeps trying to download to F drive (the CD/DVD Ram drive) and will not allow it to be changed - when I open up itunes with the shuffle connected it keeps telling me to download itunes 7.2 or higher. So how do I stop it diverting to the F drive so that it can be on the C or D drive. Do I need to uninstall itunes and start again? Help please.

Have you tried downloading manually from:

http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/

If you can not select where to save it, maybe try using a different web browser, Firefox should do the trick.

Once downloaded, run the installer and it should update your current version.

I purchased a used ipod shuffle. i just bought a charger for it and have itunes already on my computer for my daughters ipod nano... but the computer isnt recognizing my shuffle. how do i make this work


Update the drivers for computer to recognize the player. You can go to the manufacture's website, download the drivers. Once downloaded, double-click the file that was just downloaded, then it will install the files into your computer. Then once installed, restart computer and then you should be good to go.

I got a ipod shuffle and i don't know how to get music on it.


So you didn't know how to sync music to your iPod?

Try this:
1. Download iTunes on http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/ (around 60mb)
2. Install it.
3. After iTunes installed, connect your iPod and sync music from your computer to your iPod through iTunes.

Hope this help!

Cant get songs onto ipod shuffle.(daughter has ipod touch)


Hi there,
When you go into the ipod section on iTunes, click the music tab, make sure 'sync music' is checked and 'selected playlists:' is also, then check the playlist you want to use. Click 'sync' button

If that don't work go back to the summary tab and hit 'restore' and follow the instructions to reset the ipod, resync and all should be fine.

All the best

Ipod Shuffle is not working! Please help!


I had the same problem with a new 2nd gen shuffle connecting it to my PowerMac G5 (OSX 10.4.11) with the latest iTunes (8.0.1). The problem is in the connector. The shuffle using the same connector for listening, syncing with iTunes, and charging. It appears to be insufficient for the G5 to interface with it because when I swapped it for a new Nano, the Nano worked just fine. I tried 2 new 2nd gen shuffles (and hours with in-store so-called genius's as well as tech supp in CA and noone could come up with a resolution). So I figured it had to be in the cable interface (the Nano using a multi-pin connection like the old ipod's used to) and that was exactly the problem. I spoke to someone who said they had a G4 and the shuffle worked fine with that, so it must just be a G5 issue.

Hope this helps....

Sync Old iPod Shuffle & iPod Nano


Are you saying, that you want to know if you can use your old iTunes that you had for your shuffle, on your new ipod? If so, the answer is yes. Copy your itunes music on a pordable disk. When you plug your ipod into your computer, it will recogonize that it is a different ipod. A box will come up and ask you if you want to have a new library. Click yes and then you will have a new library. Put your disk(s) in and copy them over to your itunes.

I hope this helps, but I'm sorry if it doesn't. I didn't exactly get what you were saying. I haven't exactly tried this, but I think it will work. Please rate my solution.

Got a new computer and tried to download songs on my ipod nano from my itunes account and somehow i deleted all my songs i already bought from itunes. how do i get them back?


If they are not showing on the itunes library page, they may still be on the computer...have a look under 'my documents' and 'music' see if there is a an itunes folder in there if there is open it and look for the itunes music folder. Hopefully if you just deleted them from your library and not your computer they will still be there.

Changed computers


I'm making an assumption that iTunes was working before on the other computer, and now that you have switched computers, the Nano is not being recognized by iTunes?

Try this, from Apple's website:

Summary Learn how to restore iPod, iPod classic, iPod mini, and iPod nano to factory settings.
If you need to restore an iPod shuffle, click here.
Background It is important to understand the difference between "update" and "restore". Update simply installs the software that controls iPod and does not affect the songs and files stored on iPod's disk. Restore erases the iPod's disk and restores iPod to its original factory condition.
Warning: because Restore erases all of the songs and files on iPod, make sure to back up any files you've saved on the iPod disk. All of your songs, videos, podcasts, audiobooks, and games can be loaded back to your iPod provided that you have them stored in your iTunes Library. If you use the Nike + iPod Sport Kit, see this document for more information.

Ipod nano 4gb


If you install the itunes version 7.5 that you downloaded, you wont lose your music library. It is a separate file from the programs installation files. You don't need to uninstall the previous version, the new one will install on top of it.
