Syncing without deleting content on ipod shuffle.

Hi, i have 2 ipod shuffles(silver) , i have formatted & loaded a fresh copy of XP & itunes onto my hard drive & when i plug either of my ipods into the pc itunes recognises them but wont open them unless it re-syncs them & deletes the music on them, which of course is not what i want as i don't want to loose these music files, how can i re-sync both of my ipods to itunes without loosing my files.

I Appreciate any help you can give to resolving this dilemma for me.

Rgds Stewart.

This happened to me too with my iTouch. i had to plug it into my comp, quickly stop it from syncing, then i went under the tab on the left for my iPod. when i set it to manual syncing, it fixed the problem, but then you'll have to do everything by hand. if you want to keep it automatic, i think you'll have to let it format.

Problem with the Apple iPod Shuffle Silver MP3 Player I formatted my iPod... so i need drivers


Hi,
Regarding your concern, you just need to download iTunes to format your iPod Shuffle.
Using iTunes is the best way to format your iPod Shuffle, since you formatted it I believe you can't get it detected on your computer, you just need to download iTunes from the Apple Webstie then from iTunes that is where you will need to format your iPod Shuffle for it to be detected properly on your computer.
Just go to Apple.com then click on iTunes then download.
Have a nice day,

Unable to transfer music files to iPod Shuffle in iTunes


What I would do is restore your ipod. Here is how to do that:

  1. Connect the iPod to your computer with the USB cable that came with your iPod, and open iTunes.
  2. After a few moments, you should see the iPod appear in the left panel of iTunes, under Devices.
  3. Click once on the name of the iPod under Devices, and you should see a summary of your iPod appear in iTunes.
  4. Click on Restore, and iTunes will start reformatting your iPod.
  5. After your iPod has been reformatted, you will probably be prompted to plug it into a wall outlet to complete the restore process.
  6. After you plug your iPod into a wall outlet via a wall charger, you will be able to transfer all of your files back onto your iPod. Connect your iPod to your computer again, and your iTunes will sync all your files. You should then be able to use your iPod to listen to music, watch videos, or view photos without any problems.

Ipod is not recognized by itunes. it wont play or charge it just blinks 4 times when i plug it in


  1. The iPod reset utility will reset your iPod shuffle back to it's factory settings. It works for the following shuffles: iPod shuffle (1st Generation) - iPod Software version 1.1.5, iPod shuffle (2nd Generation) - iPod Software version 1.0.3
    The reset utility will fix the following issues.
    1. The iPod won't play music and can't be restored using iTunes
    2. iTunes won't see the iPod but you can see it under "My Computer" in windows or under Apple System Profiler on a Mac.
    3. iPod shuffle (1st Generation) is identified as a device in "Recovery mode." iPod shuffle (2nd Generation) is identified as a "USB DFU device."
  2. You have to have administrator privileges to run the restore software and it will wipe out all the information on the iPod (including all your music) and install factory software back onto it.
    System requirements are Mac OS X 10.3.9, or later, Win2k with sp4, Win XP, this won't work on Vista.
    Download the file for the program here:
    MAC
    http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/ipodresetutility102formac.html
    Windows
    http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/ipodresetutility102forwindows.html
  3. Install the software onto your computer, plug your iPod into the USB port and run the reset program, it will ask for your permission to reset the iPod, answer yes and the process will proceed. After finishing the reset procedure then use iTunes or whatever software is used to access your iPod and load your music. Enjoy your toy!

I can not play the music i copied onto my ipod shuffle 2nd generation any to help me.i want to know if itunes is the only way to sync files to the ipod


You need to download songs in mp3 format as any music you take from a cd will have copyright in the tracks and will not play on your ipod.
