You are supposed to transfer songs usin itunes....simple drag and drop doesnt work.... You can download itunes from www.apple.com\itunes
If you are already using itunes,perform a restore on the ipod using itunes...you will find restore option under the summary tab in itunes.

IPod nano wont play any songs at all


I don't know if you've already done this, but this sounds to me like a software issue on the IPOD.  I also have one of these, and have had to do the following at least once due to lock up problems.  Connect the IPOD to your computer, make SURE all the music you have on the IPOD is on your computer (because your IPOD is about to be wiped clean).  Then, in ITUNES under your IPOD (whatever you named it) on the main screen should be a RESTORE function. Click on that, and follow the directions - this will wipe your IPOD clean, and restore  all factory software and settings.  Reload your music, and try it then - this usually works for me! :)
Good luck wit the IPOD! :)

Computer says songs are there iPod says there not


your ipod will not function properly with windows media player. it may play the music but it won;t get functionality from the ipod.
You have to use iTunes to get your ipod straightened out. Once you mount it on iTunes you will see the music and be able to add music and delete music.

Ipod Video 80 gb loads song but does not play


You might just have to convert the songs into a format that the ipod can read and play. Under itunes, just right click on a song that does not play on your ipod and click on the convert to mp3 option. Then transfer the converted songs to your ipod and it should work then.

Only playing video, no music


It sounds like a problem with your hard drive. I know it sounds strange when everything else is working but in my experience and I've fixed thousands of iPod videos. 95% of the time, if the logic board is actually functioning, if you have a fault it's the hard drive.

My ipod shuffle wont play music


It won't play music while connected to computer, that's for sure. It only plays when it's disconnected from the wall charger and computer.

The songs could be in the wrong format
AAC is iTunes native format
Mp3 generally works
WMA is iffy - only unprotected (non-DRM) files will work
Streaming songs won't work

Ipod


Try restoring the ipod, this will erase all music from your ipod so make sure its backed up. it erases all of your ipods software and reinstalls it this will almost definitly fix your problem. if it doesnt, than the problem may be mechanical

contact me if my solutions doesnt work as hoped, or for further help.
