Question about Apple iPod MA446LL/A MP3 Player
Ok i have 2 problems with my ipod, the first one is actually due to the fact that itunes will not work on my pc at all... i installed it a while ago and it worked after some minor changes were made. I basically found an older version (something like... version 5.0.1 or something) and it didn't work, so i changed the compatibility of the program to be compatible with windows 2000 (by the way i use windows XP i just used the little utility thing that comes up in the properties menu when you right click the itunes icon on the desktop) and then all of a sudden it worked, then i installed the new itunes over it, and it was fine... now... 3 months on, i have purchased a new HDD and installed windows again (yay) and now this process will not work at all... i am befuddled why it does not work, i used the same method as before and it still won't do anything, please help me with this issue... as dBpower AMP music converter only works SOME of the time... my other issues has to do mainly (and hopefully) with this program... i have transfered music to my ipod with this program pretty well since i had it, but for some reason with 1 particular set of files i recently acquired... it will not sync them at all... i try to sync them 1 by 1 and it does nothing... it says that the files are on the ipod, but when i select the artist and then album on my ipod (when it is NOT attached to the pc) the songs are not there... yet the dBpower AMP music converter seems to think they are.. what is going on here ? please help me with both issues ASAP as these songs are used to wake me up for work in the morning on my pc... and im quite sick of leaving my pc on all night... ^_^ lol.
Excellent ipod troubleshooting tips! Corrosion forming on the HDD cable can also create problems. I'd recommend cleaning the silver inputs from time to time to reduce this buildup.

OK OK i know you guys are trying but there are alternatives even for the OS on the ipod what it sounds like to me is a combination of problems for most of you from compatibility issues to firmware problems sounds like some of you need to just do a full restore and start over as far as your ipod is concerned
i personally run rock box and ipodlinux on my ipod way more functionality and if you just hate itunes or it won't work for you can just drop the music on to your ipod the old fashion way
rock box is as stable as can be <a rel='nofollow' href="http://www.rockbox.org/">they're main page<a/>and this one is straight to the <a rel='nofollow' href="http://build.rockbox.org/">compatability chart<a/>
but to use rock box you have to alter your firmware which if you mess up in a worst case scenario means you just do a full restore and your back in business
here is the site for <a rel='nofollow' href="http://www.ipodlinux.org/Installer_2">ipod Linux installer<a/> and if you navigate around they will cover any legal questions about this you might have or how to fix it if you break something
and no it does not void your warranty

Solution posted by fire sine not appropriate. I am using XP with service pack 2. After reloading XP, lost iTunes. Reinstalled iTunes and moved music from iPod with TransferMyMusic back into iTunes. But while all the songs are in iTunes and on my 30G iPod, will no longer let me add more music to iPod from iTunes even with 20G storage remaining.

Go to Get Info and unclick "Compilation". If it's a compilation it won't show the different artist, which is actually a cool idea.

SOURCE: iTunes not working on PC
Vista works just go on to apple.com and download it again. That amp converter is just gay. Depending on what were you are getting the songs. Example: Like divx. So just download it again and get rid of amp converter.

Some players require files to be placed in appropriate directories. For
example audio files should placed in the folder called "audio" and
video files in a folder called "video" and so on.
Some mp3 players use a method called "syncing" to transfer songs to mp3 players. Syncing can be done only using the software that comes bundled with the player. Perhaps you should install the software and try using it to copy the songs again?
you can download the software from visualland.com
Let me know if you need more help.

You check your songs from your computer first; Right click on one of songs, select Properties, select Summary tab (check Artist, Album Title, and Title). If they are there, you should update new firmware (search SANDISK FORUM from google). If they are empty, it's right for device display the filename.
