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

I have an ipod shuffle. I have downloaded latest itunes software. I have music on my pc. It wont let me drag any songs into itunes. When I first plug ipod into pc it says it recognizes it and that it is syncing. There are songs already in itunes. My daughter has ipod touch. Hers works easy and effortlessly. I tried to put some of the songs already in the playlist (that my daughter put on hers, they just pop up when I plug mine in) on my shuffle and it syncs and is done. But no songs actually go on shuffle. Please help me if you can. Thanks.

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

Once iTunes has been successfully downloaded and installed on your computer, simply connect your iPod

Downloading


You need to use itunes as your music management software and ipod management software. You can download the latest itunes version at www.apple.com/itunes.

From here you can purchase items through the itunes music store, or add your own music by adding files from your computer, or putting a cd in your computer and coppying it into itunes so you can put the songs on your ipod.

Hope this helped,

Nathan.
