Question about Apple iPod classic MP3 Player

1 Answer

My new iPod classic (and my old one) don't seem to recognize all artists / songs downloaded, although they're still in my library. In addition, I can manually transfer those unrecognized artists and songs from my library to a playlist and it will show up on my ipod, but they won't show in a normal ipod sort mode on artist, album, etc. I verified in my library that all songs and playlists are being sync'd, but they still don't show up. What's the deal? This is very frustrating, because it's a lot of music that has to be searched via a playlist rather than my preferred artist sorting.

    I have a similar problem. I just purchased a 6th gen. Ipod classic (60 g) to replace my 4th gen. unit. The new Ipod works great, with one exception. For some reason, over half of my artists do not sync to the new ipod. All of the albums and songs are there, but the artist listing is incomplete. I did not have this problem with my 4th gen. ipod. Does anyone have a solution?

    Hey, naveen! Halo969 just headed me the right direction and I got it fixed...go to your library listing of songs, highlight each song (individually as you do the fix), right click the mouse to bring up "info" tab. If you look at each song that has this problem, it will have the "part of a compilatioin" box checked. Uncheck this box and then re-sync your iPod. They songs and artists will all show up on your pod...

How Do I Download Songs Onto My iPod Nano?
IPod Nanos are portable multimedia players that allow you to playback songs and other content (e.g. video) no matter where you go. They come in a variety of memory sizes such as 4GB or 16GB (gigabytes) and work with iTunes to upload songs. ITunes is the iPod default management program which allows you to upload songs to its library, create playlists and sync music on your iPod quickly and easily. This simple process will have you jamming to your favorite songs in no time.


Downloading to an iPod Nano1Connect your iPod Nano to the computer using the USB cable. Launch iTunes if does not automatically launch. When you launch iTunes, it will display your iPod Nano on the left panel.
2Add music to your iTunes library. Click the "File" button on the top menu and click "Add to Library." Locate the song you want to upload to your player and click "Open" to load it to your program.
3Click the "+" button on the lower left panel to create a playlist. Type a name for the playlist and drag the uploaded file to it. To upload additional songs, repeat Step 2 and drag the uploaded additional songs to the created playlist.
4Drag the songs in the playlist up or down to select the order in which the songs will play.
5Sync your iPod Nano. Click the iPod icon on the left panel after importing songs and adding them to the created playlist. Click the "Music" tab and click "Sync music." Click "Select playlists, artists and genres" and select the playlist you created that contains the songs you want to upload. Click "Apply" to automatically sync and download the songs to your iPod Nano.
6Click the "Eject" button and disconnect your iPod from the computer.

Tips & Warnings
Click "Music Store" if you want to purchase a music file. Search for the song on the iTunes store and download it to the iTunes library.

Load music on my ipod


Connect your iPod to your computer with the USB cable that came with your iPod. The iPod screen should say "Do not disconnect".

Your iPod should appear under Devices in the bar to the left.

Decide whether you want to sync your iPod with your iTunes library or manually put songs on your iPod.(nano only)

Syncing your iPod will automatically add all of the songs in your library to your iPod. It will also delete any songs from your iPod that are not in your library. Click on your iPod icon and select Sync in the lower right corner.

If you do not want all the songs in your library on your iPod, make a playlist of all the songs you do want, or decide which playlists you want to include on your iPod.

Click on your iPod icon
On the top bar, click on the button which says "Music"

Make sure the box that says "Sync Music" is checked, then check the box for whether you want your iPod to sync with the entire library or selected playlists. If you click selected playlists, select the playlists you want in the playlists category. For newer iPods you can check which artists are included on your iPod to automatically import all the songs from each selected artist onto your iPod

I have a Coby MP620-8G mp3 player. For some reason, I've been getting a whole bunch (at least 15 albums) of my artists thrown into the Unknown Artist category, making it difficult to find songs. In my...


I just had this problem as well. Find one of the files that is showing up on the MP3 player as "Unknown Artist" in your iTunes library. Right click that song/file and click "Get Info". You'll most likely find that the song is an "ACC Audio File" which happens often when you copy CDs or download from the iTunes Store. Close the info window about the song and then you can select the entire album or individual songs from your iTunes playlist that are showing up as "Unknown Artist". Once all the songs that you need are selected, right click again and select "Create MP3 Version". This will create a duplicate, however, so you'll want to go back to the main library in iTunes (or stay there if you are already there) and then remove the original "ACC" versions. You can, if you'd like, keep them on your hard drive, but you really don't need them because MP3 is the standard. From here you can remove those files from the Coby MP3 player and replace them with the new MP3 versions you have created in iTunes.
I hope this helps!

How to dowload music


1. Pull out your CDs and start downloading. CDs can be used to download your favorite music from the past. You can search the titles on the back of the CD cover and choose the track numbers you want added to your iPod. Simply attach your iPod to your computer, wait until the iTunes program has appeared and add the music to your library and play list. 2. Use the iTunes store. The great thing about the iTunes store is that it is easily accessible. You can search by artist name, song title or album. The prices appear right next to the song 3. Find a user-friendly music download program. You can either buy a program and install from the Internet or upload a program from a disc. 4. Use your email. Email is much more than just a way to talk online. If your friend has a few songs that you do not have, tell them to email it to you. You can download the music from your email account. Save the songs on your desktop or in a file folder and click and drag the music into iTunes. You will only have to wait a short time for the conversion process! 5. Transfer iTunes libraries from another iPod. If your iPod is fairly new and you don?t have any great music, simply borrow your friend?s music by plugging in your iPod to their iTunes library. A pop up window will appear, asking if you want to use the current library. Simply agree to use the iTunes library and you will have all of their music in a matter of minutes.

Ipod classic won't sync with all songs / artists in my library


Have you tried right-clicking on one of the songs and choosing Get Info? I had some songs like that too and had to fill out the artist. After that it remembered the information even if I removed the song from my library and re-added it later.

Wanna copy music to an ipod classic without using itunes


Other options are RealPlayer (has a iPod plug-in), and a relatively new program which appears promising called Songbird. Both of these two programs are popular for transferring music to iPods without the use of Apple iTunes.

IPOD mystery


They will only show if the infomation is there. If your on a Mac, highlight the song holding down the  ctrl key at the same time and choose get info. I guess that you will need to put the artists name in.
