Question about Apple iPod classic MP3 Player

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

My new ipod classic (and my old one) don't recognize all artists and songs in my library, although many will sync correctly in the standard way.

I can manually transfer those missing artists and songs from my library to a playlist, and the playlist will sync correctly, but they don't show up by artist / song etc. Note: In my library windows, they don't show up in the "artist" listing...although you can scroll through the songs and find them.

What's up? This is very frustrating because it's a lot of music that has to be dealt with differently. Because the artist doesn't show up in the library's "artist" window, it leads me to believe it's not a syncing problem on my ipod.

    Hey! Excellent! I simply went into "info" and noticed that all the missing songs were "clicked" as "part of a compilation". I just unhighlighted that check box, and magic! They're all in my songs / artists list on the iPod now!



    Thanks a million!

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.

How do i upload songs


How to Upload Songs to an iPod: (You can also find the instructions here.)

1)Download the latest version of iTunes. It is free and you can obtain it from the Apple website. It could have come with your iPod on an installation CD. Makes sure your computer meets the requirements. You can find older versions on the web, but they have limitations.
2)Scan your computer for songs to add to the library.
3)Connect your iPod to your computer with the USB cable that came with your iPod. The iPod screen should say "Do not disconnect".
4)Open iTunes. Your iPod should appear under Devices in the bar to the left.
5)Follow the instructions for naming your iPod and changing the initial settings if the iPod has not been plugged into a computer before.
6)Buy music from the iTunes music store or import songs off a CD using iTunes.
7)Decide whether you want to sync your iPod with your iTunes library or manually put songs on your iPod.
(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.)
8)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.
9)Click on your iPod icon.
10)On the top bar, click on the button which says "Music".
11)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.
12)Properly disconnect your iPod using the eject button (see Warnings).
13)Listen to your new songs!

TIPS:
Set up the iPod on the computer you plan to use it on. An iPod set up with a Macintosh will need to have all the songs deleted in order to use it on a Windows operating system. This only needs to be done once if you switch computers, but just to make less hassle, try to use the iPod on only one computer.

WARNINGS:
Make sure you disconnect the iPod properly to avoid problems or loss of files on your iPod. Click the eject button next to the iPod icon in iTunes, or in the lower, right-hand corner. If you quit iTunes, drag the iPod icon on your desktop to the trash to eject (Mac). Right click on the iPod icon on your desktop on a Windows PC.

Things You'll Need:
- USB connector cable
- iTunes
- iPod
- Computer
- Music files or CD's


Hope this information helps!

Trying to down load song from my lap top when synk it wounts to remove all song to in stall 12 songs?


I think you are trying to sync with a different library than your own original library that you synced your ipod before. OR the original songs that are in your ipod are no longer in your library. There is a option that you could sync songs manually.
1. Connect your iPod 2. Start iTunes 3. Click on your iPod 4. Check option that says Manually sync songs
Now you can sync your music without deleting the old songs. I hope

How can i download songs to my ipod?


First you need to install Itunes on your pc. Then plug your Ipod into your pc. The pc should recognize it and you can name your product (ex. MY IPOD, or whatever you want to call your device). If you have acquired a used ipod from someone then it will ask you to erase and sync. You can only have your ipod synced to one library. You then need to load your itunes with the music you want on your player. This is fairly straight forward process. You can either load files onto it or insert a cd in and rip the music to your itunes. Once you have the music in your library plug your ipod in the library will recognize it and sync the entire library to your player or you can make playlists to sync certain songs to it.... hope this helps
