How do I sync a downloaded iBook to my iPod Shuffle

My iPod Shuffle was purchased 2011. I have bought a book from iTunes, downloaded it (1.1MB) but am unable to sync it to the iPod. On my computer screen all that is shown is the name, author and a picture of the cover of the book. I often downoad ebooks from my local library which require extracting before syncing to the iPod Shuffle. I have never downloaded anything from ITunes before and don't use my iPod Shuffle for music, just for listening to books.

SOURCE: Syncing my itouch with itunes

Itunes can sync infinite ipods and should have no trouble, so there isnt a problem with having two ipods. Try this: turn off your ipod, hold the home button, and plug it into itunes while still holding the home button until a picture of the itunes symbol appears with a cable under it. itunes should say "ipod found in restore mode". this will get rid of any previous users' settings, and hopefully fix anything preventing itunes from syncing with your ipod.

SOURCE: unable to sync ipod with computer

Actually I would try putting the ipod into disc mode and restoring it to see if it a software issue. I know computer/ipod stuff can be very frustrating sometimes too; so i posted a step by step on both the putting the ipod into disc mode as well as restoring it. Generally you will need to use itunes to add music to the player. I only know of super computer wiz's being able to sync using the media player. I also posted a how to on adding content to your ipod. I hope that this does resolve the issue your having. :)

If you do not already have itunes, you will want to go to the web page listed below and download it for free.
http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/



Putting ipod into disc mode http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1363 Putting iPods with a Click Wheel into disk mode Before placing the iPod into disk mode, you should verify that it is charged. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Set it to Hold, then turn it off again.) Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for at least 6 seconds until the Apple logo appears. When the Apple logo appears, release the Menu and Select buttons and immediately press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until the Disk Mode screen appears.
Connect the iPod to your computer; the screen on the iPod will change and say "Do not disconnect" If you are having difficulty putting the iPod model into disk mode, set it on a flat surface. Make sure that the finger pressing the Select button is not touching the Click Wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Play/Pause button toward the outside of the Click Wheel and not near the center.
If you are still unable to put your iPod with a Click Wheel into Disk Mode, use one finger from one hand to press the Select button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Play/Pause button.



How to restore iPod (ARTICLE NUMBER HT1339)
Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer using the USB or FireWire cable that came with your iPod.

After a few moments, your iPod will appear in the Source panel in iTunes.
Select your iPod in the Source panel and you will see information about your iPod appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes windows.

Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt iTunes to automatically download the latest iPod Software.

The 4 possible restore options are: Restore Option

1: Restore - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod. Restore Option

2: Use Same Version - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod even though a newer version is available. Restore Option

3: Use Newest Version - Restores with the latest iPod Software available. Restore Option

4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest iPod Software available.

If you are using a Mac, a message will appear prompting you to enter an administrator’s name and password.

A progress bar will appear on the computer screen indicating that the first stage of the restore process has started.

When this stage is completed, iTunes will present one of two messages on screen with instructions specific to the iPod model you are restoring.
Restore Instruction 1: Disconnect iPod and connect it to iPod Power Adapter (typically applies to older iPod models).


Restore Instruction 2: Leave iPod connected to computer to complete restore (typically applies newer iPod models).

During the stage 2 of the restore process, the iPod will show an Apple logo as well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display. It is critical that the iPod remains connected to the computer or iPod Power adapter during this stage.

Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see since the backlight on the iPod display may be off.

After stage 2 of the restore process is complete and the iPod is connected to the computer, the iTunes Setup Assistant window will appear asking you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences similar to when you connected your iPod for the first time.

Some ibooks have disappeared From my ibooks library. One category is completely missing. These books were not purchased from ibooks.


Anything not purchased from Apple (music from iTunes, books from iBooks, et al) is likely to be deleted from your iOS device when (A) synced to a different computer than the last time it was synced or (B) the phone is updated to a newer iOS. Occasionally, some things just may randomly vanish as well. The reason is due to digital rights. When Apple first came out with iTunes, the music industry threw a bit of a fit and made them program things so that a combination of iTunes and an iPod could not be used as a vessel for music piracy. This carried over to books as well. If you didn't buy it from Apple, then Apple does not guarantee the content. They don't have the legal right to keep content not bought from them safe, and if there is a glitch, or an update, or you sync with a library on a different computer, then that content will be lost.

That being said, using iTunes to make a backup on a single dedicated computer might save any kinds of notations or bookmarks you place on things not ought from Apple. This I can't guarantee, but it is likely. If you switch between two computers, that's when things get lost. Also, backing up to iCloud will also not likely keep anything not purchased from Apple.

How do i download songs to my iPod model no.A1204 EMC no. 2125? and how to charge it?


As with all iPods, you must use Apple's iTunes application to sync your music with your iPod Shuffle.

You'll need to install the latest iTunes by downloading it from Apple click here> and then installing it. You install iTunes like any other downloaded program by double-clicking on the resulting icon after iTunes has successfully downloaded.
Follow the on-screen directions to install iTunes.
Once iTunes is installed, start up iTunes and have it search your computer for music for it to manage for you. While that is going on, plug the white USB cable that came with your iPod into your iPod Shuffle and into one of the USB ports on your computer. This will trigger iTunes to recognize your iPod Shuffle and ask you whether you want to set it up with this computer.

Follow the on-screen prompts to sync your iPod Shuffle with your computer.

To charge your iPod Shuffle, just keep it plugged in to your computer using the supplied white USB cable. Keep the cable connected until the battery indicator on the ipod Shuffle shows that the battery is full.

Thanks for using FixYa and Happy New Year!

Make sure that you have have ticked the box in iTunes that allows books to sync once you have plugged the iPod in.

If that fails, you can also download the books again from the iBooks store. Simply open iBooks, go to the store, and go to Purchases. From there you can choose any books you have previously bought and re-download them with no charge.
