Question about Apple iPod shuffle Second Gen. Silver (1 GB) MP3 Player (MA564LL/A)

1 Answer

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,

How do i download music on shuffle


Thank you for contacting FixYa Support.

To download music onto your iPod Shuffle you first need to make sure you have the music and media Application from Apple Inc, called iTunes downloaded and installed onto your computer first.

Here is the link for downloading iTunes, which is also a free download by the way.

Download iTunes (for Mac or PC)

Once iTunes has been successfully downloaded and installed on your computer, simply connect your iPod
Shuffle via USB cable to your computer (if you have not already done so) and iTunes in moments will recognize your Shuffle.

Next, click on the link below to review the easy to follow video guide on how to download music onto an iPod Shuffle:

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

New Ipod Shuffle is not loading songs


Hi,
Generally you do not have to change the drive letter. There is a 'shuffle restore' program from Apple that you can download for free. Using this to restore your iPod will set it back to factory conditions. Do you have the latest version of iTunes on your computer? If not, you might want to try that also. Have you tried dragging your playlist into the Shuffle? I find that it helps with my shuffle to create playlists and have it fill out of them. That way I can change the playlist every day. Works for me. Hope that helps.
