You need to check your file type. if its not aac your eating more memory than needed. to do this select a song in itunes and choose get info from the file menu, then check the format, size and bit rate in the summary tab. just convert your songs to the aac type. it takes awhile but well worth it.

Download Hot men onto apple I pad

Sorry for my silly question but what is hot men? Is it a song you want?

If the song is already on your computer and you want to transfer it to your iPod, you can always count on iTunes.

The next guidance will show you how to transfer music from computer to iPod with iTunes.
  1. Connect your iPod to PC via matched USB cable. Then click the iPod icon on the left corner of the interface. To manage your media files manually, you'd better go to "Options" under "Summary" tab, cancel "Automatically sync when this iPod is connected" and check "Manually manage music and videos". Don't forget to click "Apply" when it's done.
  2. Import music into iTunes library from computer by clicking "File" and then "Add File to Library". Once transferred successfully, you can select the music icon on top to see all the songs.
  3. Click "Music" under "Settings" tab. Choose "Sync Music". You can either sync entire music library or selected playlists as you like. Then click "Sync" button at the bottom to transfer music from computer to iPod.
If you don't want to use iTunes, please take a look at this guide for an alternative method.

My Ipod nano contains all my music. Unable to transfer to laptop

Unfortunately iTunes doesn't let you transfer anything other than your iTunes store purchases from your iPod.

Totransfer all your iPod content, all your music, playlists, videos,podcasts and photos to your new iTunes library you will need todownload software like TouchCopy.

Here is how to use TouchCopy

  1. Download and Install TouchCopy. Downloads are free and are available for both PC and Mac.
  2. Start up TouchCopy by double-clicking the TouchCopy icon on your desktop
  3. Connect your iPod or iPhone to your computer. TouchCopymay start iTunes - don't worry, TouchCopy has fixed it so that iTuneswill not sync music or video with your iPod while TouchCopy is running.These changes are restored when you quit TouchCopy.
  4. Now select which songs you want to copy into iTunes, if you want toselect all your music, select "Music" from the list on the left andclick on "Copy to iTunes" button in the TouchCopy control bar. In a similar way, you can also use TouchCopy to copy your playlists, videos, podcasts, photos, contacts, calendars and notes.
  5. Whenyou are satisfied that all your iPod content is safely in iTunes, useiTunes to re-sync your iPod which will enable you to add new content toit.

A Nano is a smaller model player. Usually they range in memroy size of 2 gig up to 8 gig. The units are smaller because they use flash memory rather than a hard drive. They were desinged to be a more cost effective unit than the standard size Ipod and there easier to carry around if you are using them for working out. The current nano model can play video which is a new feature to that line.

A Standard IPod contains a small hard drive and varries in size from 35 gig up to 160 gig. Most people can put their whole music library onto one. Thousands of songs and videos can be put onto one. If you have a Tivo and your PC is connected to it, you can put tv shows on it.

The shuffle is a smaller player. It contains 1 gig of flash memory. It has no display but the size of unit is nice to have for audio books, podcasts, or music.

The nice thing about Ipods over MP3 players is that most musicians in the world use ITunes to sell their music. You can buy one song at a time or whole CD worth of songs. You can take CDs, load them up in your computer and put them on your hard drive and transfer them to your Ipod. You can purchase music tunes for 99 cents a piece. Videos can be purchase for 1.99 a piece. Most Tv programs that are out there available for purchase on ITunes. You can use them on audible books as well.

You can download and subscribe to podcasts. Most are free but there are a few out there that are not. They cover a vast variety of subjects that interest people. I do a weekly podcast covering local news in the Seattle are for out of towners.

A standard MP3 play can read your CDs once there installed in the computer and converted to an MP3 format. Apple files are done in a different format called aac which is only compatible with there players. Some MP3 players can show video if they can accept MP4 files. You can download them to the player if you have a program that can convert them to MP4 format. If you need to purchase songs, you can go through Rapsody. They handle most of the MP3 material for players that are not Apple and have a large selection as well. Audible books uses just about every MP3 player out there.

Free software to DOWNLOAD my 80gig classic ipod to my new computer

went to and got free trial of MUSIC RESCUE from the forum after spending most of the day reading threads (wanted to be sure the "trial offer" didn't sting me half-way through a 20 gig download.)
The ephpod's software is the easiest to find, but one of the threads said his new 80gig classic ipod (same as mine!) crashed.
Somewhere there's an ipod compatibility chart, make sure your ipod matches.
There's several different software packages available, with "limited features" but music rescuer offered full features except for annoying pop-ups. Every 50 tunes it said to make this annoyance stop simply donate 10 pounds (british.) i clicked the mouse alot more than 40x finding this!
Anyway, download the help screen also (read it twice!), and it's basically idiot proof.
There's also a book, How to do everything with yout ipod and itunes by Guy Hart-Davis published by McGraw-Hill/Osbourne, that's basically an IPOD for DUMMIES
