Re: not able to put in songs

I cant help you with trying to fix the format problem but i would recommend puttingall your itune songs onto a disk and then try to fiddle around with it. You wont have to worry as much. Sorry I'm not much of ahelp though.

My ipod model A1320..IS Givenig problem...if i download song frm computer means its nt in my ipod...but if i check in cumputer putting by usb means tht song all in save but cant ply in ipod ndont hv the...

Dear youth87,
In order for you to be able to upload songs from computer to iPod, you will need to download iTunes from here:
Download iTunes, then install it. Open up iTunes, and from inside iTunes, go to: Edit/Preferences/Advanced. In here under iTunes Media folder location, choose the location where you have downloaded the songs by clicking the Change button. After this, all the music that you have on that folder, and all the music that you will add to that folder later, will appear on the iTunes library pane (the one in the right side). After you have completed this process, connect your iPod to you computer. Now your iPod should appear on the left side pane (the grey pane). In order to add music to you iPod, just drag and drop the music from the library pane, to your iPod on the left side pane. When you do this, you should see a grey circle close to the iPod. This circle means that music is being copied in your iPod. Continue this process until you have all the music you want in your iPod.
Hope this helps,

How to download music to i pod?

So how do I download music to my Ipod?

Downloading music from your hard-drive to you Ipod is done with the program called Itunes. This program comes with your Ipod purchase or can be downloaded at The software is vital because it not only allows you to purchase from the popular Itunes music service, it's also the only way you can transfer songs onto your Ipod.

So let's look into the Itunes software, and more specifically, the Itunes library that is used to transfer songs from your hard-drive to your Ipod. You'll find it on the left hand panel of the program. Your library contains all your songs, movies, and podcast that you want to transfer over. Through the Itunes library, you'll be able to use their drag-and-drop feature for easy and fast transfer to your Ipod.

Before we move one to the next step, it should be made clear that songs that are downloaded from P2P clients might not show up on the Itunes library. You must add them manually, because you will not be able to transfer any songs until they are integrated into your Itunes library. Doing this is simple. Click on file>add file to library, locate the file you want to add, and press enter to complete the process. There is also the 'add folder to library' function which allows you to transfer a whole folder of songs into the Itunes library. This is quite handy to have if most of your songs are stored in one place on your hard drive.

Alright, let's get back on track here. You know the proper steps in which to keep your Itunes library updated now, and the last step is a breeze. Plug in your Ipod to the USB port in your computer, and you'll notice the new option to add songs from your Itunes library to the Ipod. Click and drag your files into the Ipod transfer screen and then you're done! You're now ready to explore the wonderful world of music without the burden of a large cumbersome computer to haul alongside you!

How To Add songs on ipod?

You need to use iTunes, download it here: Now if you bought your iPod used you won't have to go through the iPod set up, but if you did buy new then you will have to. After you've done all this, you need to add all your songs to your iTunes library, you can burn your CDs to it or buy them off the iTunes store. Then plug your iPod into your computer and select it in the iTunes sidebar, now if you want to manually put your songs onto your iPod, then scroll all the way down and check the box that says "Manually manage Music and Videos" if you want iTunes to automatically put all your songs onto your ipod then just click "Sync."

Hope this helps!

You need to use itunes as your music management software and ipod management software. You can download the latest itunes version at

From here you can purchase items through the itunes music store, or add your own music by adding files from your computer, or putting a cd in your computer and coppying it into itunes so you can put the songs on your ipod.

I am assuming you are a new user with your ipod.
You can play and view your music on the ipod only if you transfer the files thru itunes.
You can go to the apple website or and download itunes.
After downloading it.Install the software and add your music onto your ipod through itunes.

ITunes to IPod

It sounds like you have your IPOD set to automatically sync to your itunes library instead of being set to manually select the songs. If you have it set to automatically sync then anytime you plug your ipod in with itunes open then only the songs that are in your Itunes library will be on your IPOD after you disconnect it from the computer. If you would have set it to manually sync then you would have had to choose which songs to put on your IPOD and also which to take off. If you had it set to automatically sync then I am sorry to inform you, but your songs are gone from your IPOD (and if you have it set to delete the song from the computer as well as the library then the song is gone from your laptop too)
