Unable to sync music purchased from itunes onto zen mp3

I purchased zen mp3 player for my son. I have an ipod and purchased music for him from itunes, but have not been able to sync the music to his zen. When I attempt to sync, all my music from my music library(including previously purchased music from itunes) successfully syncs except for the music I just recently purchased for my son. I am able to listen to the music using windows media player, but cannot put it onto his zen.

Ticodude is right, Creative players do not support iTunes, and vice versa. There is, however, 3rd party software that will not only allow you to sync your Zen player with iTunes. It will also perform a completely legal 'virtual burn' of those protected ACC files (m4p) and allow you to sync them as well. It's called TuneClone, you can download it here: http://www.tuneclone.com/itunes-creative-zen/

Another 3rd party app that is very popular for this is iTunesSync: http://www.pcworld.com/downloads/file/fid,69633/description.html

I believe iTunes may not like to sync with not apple players, but I am sure DRM protection is to blame here. You can try to sync your music with the software provided by Zen, or a program called MediaMonkey, to see if it works.
Otherwise, if the music is DRM protected .mp4, you can always burn the songs into a standard AUDIO CD, and then rip the music back to your computer, that way it loses the DRM protection, and should be easy to sync without problems.

I want to give my son my 4th gen ipod nano how to i delete all my music so he can sync it with his iphone?


If he has his own computer, just plug it into his and open up iTunes, you will be asked if you want to sync the ipod with the this computer, say yes, then click "Erase and Sync."
There ya go!
If you share a computer, then plug it onto your computer, select the ipod in the list to the left in iTunes, then select the "Music" tab and choose which music he wants synced to the iPod.
Hope this helps!

Ipod nano (unable to download music onto it)


1st answer: You may have a non-Apple product. There are lots of knockoffs of the Nano. Here is a link to check: http://reviews.ebay.com/FAKE-Apple-iPod-Nano-and-iPod-Shuffle-Exposed_W0QQugidZ10000000

Yes, he can but it would have to be done manually, meaning outside of the iTunes application. When the iPod is connected to a computer, it will show up on the desktop of a Mac as another disk drive. Be warned, as soon as you connect the new iPod to the computer, iTunes will load and attempt to sync (copy) all the songs in its library to the iPod.
