Can't put mp3s on ipod shuffle

I have a fairly new ipod shuffle and though I can get it to sync music from CDs that I have, I can't get it to take any of the mp3s on my computer. I've tried to drag them to the ipod on itunes, and it doesn't respond.

How to add new mp3 songs


Install iTunes
Before you connect your iPod shuffle to your Mac or PC computer or use it, you must install the latest iTunes software.
2. Connect and Set Up your iPod shuffle Charge your battery by connecting it to an Apple iPod Power Adapter or connect your iPod to a high-power USB port —one that's located directly on your computer—to ensure that your computer charges your iPod battery. (If your computer doesn't seem to recognize your connected iPod , wait about 30 minutes to allow the iPod battery to charge before going further.)
3. Fill your iPod shuffle and iTunes with Music Once you finish the set up, iTunes will open. It will then either:
  • Automatically start filling your iPod with music from your iTunes library (if you set iTunes to automatically update your iPod)
OR
  • Allow you to pick and choose what music, audiobooks, and podcasts to add, if you opted to manually manage music on your iPod.
To manually add content, simply drag any file from your iTunes library or playlist to your iPod icon in the iTunes Source list. If you're using iTunes for the very first time, you'll need to add some music to iTunes first, such as songs from your own CDs or music already on your hard drive.
4. Disconnect your iPod shuffle Once you've got your music, audiobooks, and other files on your iPod, you're ready to enjoy it.
  • If you see an “OK to Disconnect” message on your iPod, simply disconnect it from your computer.
  • If you see a “Do Not Disconnect” message, click the eject icon that appears next to your iPod icon in the iTunes Source list and then disconnect your iPod from your computer when you see the “OK to Disconnect” message.
  • Disconnecting my iPod shuffle
5. Play your iPod shuffle Now you’re ready to enjoy your iPod.

Ipod shuffle wont play


If iPod shuffle isn’t playing music
â iPod shuffle might not have any music on it. If you hear the message “Please use
iTunes to sync music,” connect iPod shuffle to your computer to sync music to it.
â Slide the three-way switch off and then on again.
â Make sure the earphone or headphone connector is pushed in all the way.
â Make sure the volume is adjusted properly. A volume limit might be set. See “Setting
a Volume Limit” on page 25.
â iPod shuffle might be paused. Try clicking the Center button on the earphone remote

Need instructions on downloading songs onto IPod Shuffle


First you'll need iTunes, download it here free. Once you have installed iTunes, plug your iPod into your computer, then start up iTunes(it may start up on it's own). You will see your iPod under devices on the left side of the iTunes window, click it. If you bought your iPod brand new, then you will have to set up and register your iPod, it's a very fast and easy process. Now you need to put all your music into your iTunes library, if you have music on a CD, then insert your CDs into your disc slot, iTunes will ask you if you want to rip your music to your library, say yes. Once you have moved all your music to your iTunes library, your iPod will automatically be synced with the music you have added.
Hope this helps!

Jow do i put songs on ipod shuffle


There should be a cable that was included that has a USB connector on one side, and what appears to be a headphone connector on the left side.
1. Connect the headphone-like connector into the headphone jack on the ipod shuffle.
2. Connect the USB connector on the other end of the cable into the computer.
3. Start iTunes (if iTunes does not start automatically)
4. Drag music from your iTunes library to the device that appears on the left side
Alternatively, you can change the settings on the iPod to automatically sync with your library, or with a specific playlist that you make. To do so:
(steps 1-3 remain the same)
4a. Select your device on the list to the left above your playlists but below your music/video/etc libraries
5a. Click the Music tab from the screen that appears when you select your device
6a. Check the box that says "Sync Music" and you may either leave at it this to automatically sync your ipod with your music library (what is in your music library will be on your ipod) OR check a box next to the playlist you want from the list that becomes available when you checkmark "Sync Music"

Cant get songs onto ipod shuffle.(daughter has ipod touch)


Hi there,
When you go into the ipod section on iTunes, click the music tab, make sure 'sync music' is checked and 'selected playlists:' is also, then check the playlist you want to use. Click 'sync' button

If that don't work go back to the summary tab and hit 'restore' and follow the instructions to reset the ipod, resync and all should be fine.

All the best

Trying to load ipod shuffle


Do you have iTunes installed?? you have to rip the CD to iTunes and then you can sync them to your iPod shuffle. You can get instructions via the manual. iPod Shuffle Manual.
If you want to put music into the iTunes library that you already have on your PC, just go to 'File', then 'Add folder to library' and it will scan that folder and every sub-folder and put the music in the library. Be careful if your songs don't have ID3 tags otherwise iTunes won't be able to work out what they are and your songs will not be catagorized well at all.
