Bearshare is a program that can be used to download and listen to audio files on your computer. You can also use Bearshare to put music directly onto your iPod or portable music player. Using Bearshare to add songs to your iPod will save you the time of having to search for your downloaded files using iTunes. By using Bearshare, you can download a new song and place that song directly onto your iPod without having to open another software program.
Download the latest version of Bearshare (see Below). http://www.bearshare.com/ Install Bearshare onto your computer. When you do, Bearshare will search for audio files that are already on your computer. The program will then add those files to the "My Library" portion of Bearshare. Open Bearshare. Click the "iPod/Mp3 Player" option on the left side of Bearshare. Plug your iPod into your computer. A dialog box will open on your screen. Click "OK." The "iPod/Mp3 Player" option will be replaced with the name of your iPod. Click the "My Library" option in the top left corner of Bearshare. Any songs that you added when installing Bearshare or that you have downloaded with Bearshare will appear on the screen. Click on the song and then drag the file over to the name of your iPod found on the left side of the screen. Doing so will add that song to your iPod. Continue doing this until you are finished adding songs to your iPod. Disconnect the iPod and close Bearshare.
if you sync you iPod , all the music in the iPod will be
what you need to do is to click on your iPod icon when you connect
it to the computer and then check "Manually manage music".
then you need to create a playlist, put all the songs you want to
add in your iPod, then under the iPod click on Music, and you will see
"Autofill from:" below the window.
select the playlist yu created and click on autofill.
thus the songs will be added without deleting the ones which were
already on the iPod.
You need to plugin your IPOD to your computer which has ITUNES installed in it. Start Itunes and you will notice form the left pane the name of your IPOD. Click for that to show list of songs on the right. Click on the songs you want to delete and press Delete from the keyboard. After you finished "cleaning". Do a re-sync on the IPOD.
I have had this problem before and it is a simple fix. What I think has happened to you is that you iPod is automatically syncing songs which I personally dont like. To change this plug in your iPod and then in iTunes click on your iPod in the left side bar and then make sure that 'Manually manage music' or similar is checked and then you should be able to go into the ipod and delete songs etc. and if you want to add music simply drag it from the library onto the iPod in the side pannel.
well, that's creepy. I bought a new computer some months ago and I did the exact thing as you with my ipod.
when I can't sync songs on to my ipod, it may be the song is not supported on you ipod.
hope this helps and good luck :)
You need to set your iPod to update manually, instead of syncing automatically when you plug it into the computer.
To do this, plug your iPod into your computer, and on the iPod info screen that pops up in iTunes when your iPod is connected, click "Manually Manage Files." You'll now have to click and drag your songs from your library to your iPod, but now you can also play songs on your computer directly from your iPod and delete songs from your library without deleting them from your iPod at the same time.
After your iPod shows up in iTunes, highlight your iPod if it doesn't automatically come up. Then on the first tab labeled Summary, under Options click the box that says Manually manage music and videos. Then you can highlight all the songs in your library that you want to add to your iPod and drag them onto the iPod. The files already on your iPod will not be overwritten.
You can download a developers version, not the final product of Songbird. It works just like itunes, but less problematic.
It will allow you to "mount" the ipod as a disk, then you can save, the songs to your PC. It will ask you if you want to sync with it, just say no and you will be able to view the contents.
I didnt make Songbird, I have just used it recently for the same problem.
Best of Luck.
Not sure if you have 1st or 2nd gen
These manuals suggest that when you connect to itunes, it automatically deletes all songs not in your library. Otherwise i don't see a format option unless the drive shows up in my computer and you can format it there (right click).
It basically suggests that you have to use one of the manual methods on the pod or computer to delete songs.
