Question about Apple Ipod Classic Black 160gb Video Mp3 7th Generation Mp3 Player Newest

I can not get my music back on my Ipod

I've had this since it first came out and never had any problems with it. I recently got some more music and I wanted to update my Ipod. I have some 18,000 songs on my Library and I'm still well within my range of memory space. Well when I plugged it in to sync, I scanned it like I always do and my computer told me there was a problem and that I should reset the device to it's default settings (a.k.a. Format it). So I did. But the problem is that when it came time to sync the Ipod would get maybe 400 songs in and freak out. I figured maybe my massive library was overloading it having to redo from scratch, however when I checked on the Ipod the 400 songs that were supposedly on there where not.. It was completely empty! How can I fix this and hopefully can I get my full library back on it? Please and thank you!

SOURCE: tracks disappeared from ipod after sync

when you sync the ipod itunes only syncs what you select.
it is possible your music list got uncheck or you had checked only synced check songs.
what happens then is the sync will replace you full library with only the songs checked.
when you connect to itunes and see the summary page. on the tabbed line just above the main contents window choose music.
look at your settings and see how it is set up.
set it to sync all music
then it will sync all the songs on your playlists every time.

you can also add and delete music by on your summary page uncheck automaticallu sync music.

then you can click on your music folder of your ipod and drag and drop song to the first column of the contents window. if you have any problems let me know

Is the problem with your iPod or your computer. If it's your iPod then try doing a 'Restore'. Connect your iPod with the cable that came with it to the USB port on your computer. In iTunes, click and (Restore). This will rebuild all the software on the iPod and restore your songs.

I can't hear sound/music from my IPod. I've tried plugging it in the iPod cable an USB cable. The screen shows that it's playing but I can't hear anything

Make sure your volume is turned up on your ipod and in the car make sure nothing else is playing. Also check your instruction book and if all fails take your car back to where you bought it from and explain what has happened also make sure it's properly pluged in!

How to add Songs on iPhone without a PC & iTunes

One of the few things that disappoint me about the iPad is that Apple's flagship tablet is still, to some extent, dependent on a nearby computer and an open window of iTunes or WinSCP. Bridge is a Cydia app which makes importing files to your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch without a computer an easier affair. While there are many apps and tweaks that can get content on your phone, Bridge has a special feature which makes it worth the $1.99 asking price.


We've already covered a number of methods to download programs to an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch without using iTunes. Some of the free methods include OpenSSH (for secure wireless file transfers from a computer), iTransmission 2 (for torrents), and Safari Download Enabler (for downloading links and video files from the web). The problem is that while these apps and tweaks are more than capable of loading music on to your phone, they don't add the files to the Music app. This means you can't make playlists with the songs you've just loaded onto your phone.
That's where Bridge comes in. With Bridge, you can locate the files you've downloaded to your device and properly import them into your library. You can use this to load Songs, Ringtones, and Podcasts for audio files, set album artwork from your photo roll, and also import movies.


Applying album art to an imported song in Bridge
The only downside is the music won't be transferred back to your computer by syncing through iTunes. That's not a limitation of the app, but a limitation in iTunes. It wasn't built to transfer user-loaded music to your computer from an iPod. If you ever need to import music to your computer, you can use SSH to copy the music over. The files should be stored in 'var/mobile/media/music'.
Bridge can be found in the BigBoss repository on Cydia. Share your thoughts in the comments section below.

My iPod has a bigger case so not I won't fit on my ihome I only use my ihome for music but my iPod won't fit so I bought an aux cable for my IPod, wene I plugged it in it didn't work the cable worked

Your video ran out. Anyway, you could try using an adaptor so your iPod will sit on your music box. If that fails, connect via your aux lead, gently pull your aux lead out of the back of the box gently and slowly giving it a wiggle, you might make the connection. Other than this, as you've not provide enough footage, you might need to buy a new aux cable that fits. Not all products are compatible with iDevices, you should check the instructions to see if your model of iPod is compatible.

I need help unlocking my ipod nano i've tried everything and nothing is working

Hi Keiontae Boykin
If you have forgotten the code, you can unlock the IPod by doing the following:
Connect your IPod to the primary computer you use it with (the first one IPod synced with), and open iTunes.
When you disconnect iPod from the computer, it will no longer be locked.
If you can't unlock IPod using either [the code or connecting it to the computer you use to manage its songs]. . . you can restore your iPod to factory settings using iPod Updater. Please note that this will erase all data on your iPod.
Afterwards, you can add your music and data back to your iPod.
If you want to change the primary computer that your IPod is associated with, do this:
1. Restore your iPod. WARNING: The restore process cannot be undone.
All of your songs and files will be deleted. Always make a backup of your important data.
2. Connect your iPod to the computer that you want to be the primary computer.
3. Open iTunes and synchronize.
If you can't unlock your iPod and you don't have access to the primary computer, your only option is to restore the IPod, which will erase all music and data.

Ipod touch configuration

Hi Since you did not post the exact problem on setting up your Apple
well the best thing to do is to reset your IPOD and it will be back to original settings
Here's how:
How to Reset an iPod 32GB
Resetting a 32 GB iPod touch is a frightening prospect. The restoration process deletes all data, including applications, music, movies and everything else when the device is restored to factory standard condition. Luckily, iTunes gives you the ability to back up your data before wiping the device clean. This means if your device locks up regularly and is functioning poorly, or you've forgotten your password and you can't get in, you can wipe your iPod

1 Launch iTunes on your computer and connect your iPod Touch using the USB cable provided with the device.
2 Select your iPod from the "Devices" list in iTunes and click the "Summary" tab. Click "Restore."
3 Click "Back Up" if you wish to back up your data before wiping the device clean. This is your last chance to save anything that hasn't yet been backed up to your computer. Click "Don't Back Up" if you would rather skip straight to the reset.
4 Click "Restore" and wait while iTunes formats your iPod Touch and reinstalls the factory standard software. Click "OK" when the process is complete.
5 Leave your device connected to the computer while it restarts. When it is again visible in the iTunes device list, the process is complete.

Tips & Warnings
iTunes will automatically launch a setup dialog when your iPod restarts. Click "Restore from the backup of" and select a backup date to restore your data to the device.

I just received an ipod 8g 'apple' which I purchased while bidding on an online auction. Problem - I get it to turn on but nothing else - no sound, etc. My sole purpose for making the purchase...

Hi there,
Please make sure that there are music files stored on your ipod and there are games (apps) that can be played on it.
You would have to put music files in the ipod so it can play it back and the Apps (games) would have to be downloaded from the app store.
One more thing you would like to check is if the ipod has been unlocked.
Hope this helps!

When you plug the iPod in, you should see the "Restore" option in iTunes. This will wipe the iPod and start over from scratch. DOING THIS WILL ERASE ALL OF THE DATA ON YOUR IPOD!!! If that works, you can then sync again and put all of your songs and apps back on it.

My black 30 gig ipod video, will not start up, letting me explain more, the apple logo will pop up, just like its starting up, the backlight will come on and then it just dies, repeating it over and over...


I'd recommend you restoring your device by following this (note that you data/music will get erased! If possible, backup your device using iTunes. Anyway, if you still have your music on your computer, you can aways sync it back to the iPod!):

1. Download the latest firmware for your iPod here...
2. Put it in DFU mode
3. Open iTunes, click Restore, while pressing SHIFT (on Windows) or Alt/Option (on Mac).
4. Point to the file you've downloaded.

If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Best regards,
