I assume your iPod still functions OK as an MP3 player?

Are you wanting to automatically sync your iPod with your library, or drag the songs from your library onto your iPod?

You can modify the settings to auto sync or not, by attaching your iPod to your PC. In iTunes, highlight your device, and from the main window you can change the sync settings.

If this doesn't work, then try and reset your iPod - you do this by holding down the menu and center buttons until the "Apple" symbol reappears.

As a last resort (if the above doesn't work) you can restore your iPod, but this will set it back to it's factory state - wiping all of the music, videos etc off of your iPod (but it will not remove anything from your computer). In iTunes, select your device, and from the main window, click on the Restore button and follow the onscreen prompts.

Uninstall itunes from your computer and re-install the same itunes version you had before. Make sure your ipod is fully charged and then plug it in and have a go at it.

Ipod nano not show (not play) songs


iTunes includes several options to automatically or manually sync videos to your iPod classic, iPod nano (3rd generation), or iPod (5th generation). Read this article to learn more about these two methods.
Products Affected iTunes, iPod nano (3rd generation), iPod classic, iPod (5th generation)
Syncing videos automatically Connect your iPod to your computer and open iTunes. Select your iPod in the DEVICES section of the iTunes Source list.

In the main iTunes browser window, select the Music tab. Select the checkbox labeled "Sync music" and verify that the "Include music videos" checkbox is also selected. You have the option to sync all songs and playlists or selected playlists.

Movies can be automatically synced to iPod. Select the Movies tab and select the option to sync all movies, selected movies, or a certain number recent unwatched movies.

TV Shows can be automatically synced to iPod. Select the TV Shows tab and select the option to sync all TV shows or selected ones. You can also determine which episodes are synced based on if they are recent or unwatched.

Video Podcasts can be automatically synced to iPod. Select the Podcasts tab select the option to sync all podcasts or selected ones. You can also determine which episodes are synced based on if they are recent, new or unplayed.

Click Apply and iTunes will begin syncing the content you've selected to your iPod. Tip: You can use the capacity bar at the bottom of the iPod settings window to determine how much free space is available. The size of a playlist can be determined by selecting it and looking at the bottom of the iTunes window.

The iTunes LCD will display the sync progress and notify you when the iPod sync is complete.



To disconnect your iPod, select it in the Source list and click the eject icon.
Syncing videos manually If your prefer not to automatically sync video content to your iPod, you can setup manual syncing.
Connect your iPod to your computer and open iTunes. Select your iPod in the DEVICES section of the iTunes Source list.

In the main iTunes browser window, select the Summary tab. Select the "Manually manage music and videos" option. This will deselect the automatic sync settings for the Music, Movies, and TV Shows tabs. Automatic syncing for Podcasts, Photos, Contacts, and Games can be individually disabled by selecting each of those tabs. Note: When manually managing iPod, disk use is enabled and iPod must always be manually ejected in iTunes before disconnecting.

Click Apply. To manually add music videos, movies or TV shows to your iPod, choose one of these categories under LIBRARY in the Source list. Select and drag items you want (to choose multiple items, Command-click items on a Mac or Control-click items in Windows), then drag them onto your iPod icon in the Source list. To add a playlist, select it in the Source list and drag it onto your iPod in the same ways as a video or song.

When you are ready disconnect your iPod, select it in the Source list and click the eject icon.

IPod nano (3rd generation) not syncing


What seems to have happened is that either iTunes or the iPod folder has become corrupt. To solve this, download the very latest version of iTunes, install it, connect your iPod. If it wants to update the software on your iPod do this. Then on the main ipod page on iTunes click the button that says Restore. Choose the bottom most option if given any then go ahead and restore. You should now be able to sync as normal.

All the best

I pod Nano...


Two possible answers i found....

Are the playlists still on your computer? (This is the obvious question). If the songs have been moved on your computer or off of your computer, they'd need to be put back on and into iTunes.
If your songs are stored locally but the iPod is still not syncing, check to see if you have 'manually manage your own music' checked. If you do, it won't sync automatically, so make sure it's unchecked.
If that doesn't work, try turning on the 'Enable Disk Use' option in the preferences. If syncing still doesn't work, try ejecting (from within iTunes, *not* the Windows System Tray) and connecting again. If that still doesn't work, try enabling manual updating of songs, creating a playlist, and dragging it onto the ipod icon in iTunes.
I hope that helps. Let me know if it doesn't.

Other answer i got was 1. On the left menu bar in iTunes, go to your iPod (the thing will be called whatever you named your iPod)
2. Near the top of the screen, there will be tabs. Click on the second one that says 'Music'.
3. Now, make sure 'Sync Music' is checked and directly below it, make sure that 'All Songs and Playlists' is checked and NOT 'Selected Playlists'. Your iPod, if connected, should start downloading immediately.

Changed pc and new pc cannot work with ipod


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.
