IPOD how to move music


Follow these steps it will help you to copy music to pc

Open iTune

confirm that your iPod is configured to enable disk use. Essentially this means that your new computer will recognize your iPod as a USB device device or a external drive.
Enable disk use if necessary. Connect your iPod to your old computer and open iTunes. When iTunes has loaded, select your iPod and display "Preferences" in the main window.
Click on the "Summary" tab and select "Manually Manage Music." You should see a check mark in the box next to "Enable Disk Use." If you don't see it, then just check that box yourself. An alert will display informing you'll now need to manually unmount the iPod as well as ejecting it in iTunes before disconnecting it from the computer.
Hit "OK" and click "Apply Preferences."
Consolidate Music
Move all your music to one place to make the transfer easier.
Navigate to the iTunes Preferences menu. In Windows, this menu is located in the Edit menu, while on a MAC it's simply it's own menu.
Go to the "Advanced" tab, then "General." Check the box next to "Copy Files to iTunes Music Folder When Adding to Library" and click "OK." iTunes will copy all of your music to the hard drive of your computer. This shouldn't be a problem unless you don't have enough disk space.
Go to the "Advanced" tab and then "Consolidate Library." Read the message that warns you that this step will place all your music in the iTunes folder and that it can't be reversed. Click "Consolidate."
Determine Storage Capacity
Make sure there's enough space on your iPod to hold the iTunes music files. In essence, you will be using your iPod as an external storage drive to bring your iTunes library to the new computer. Without a large enough storage capacity, this can't be completed.
Determine how much space is available by opening iTunes on your old computer and checking the size of the library. Click on "Music" and make note of the amount of space your library takes up. Then connect your iPod, click on it in iTunes and note the amount of free space indicated at the bottom of the pane.
Calculate to make sure that the amount of available space on your iPod is greater than the space required by the iTunes library. If not, you'll need to free up some space.
Free up space by clicking on your iPod in the Source pane and then clicking on "Music" or otherwise navigating to the contents of your iPod. Click on any song in the main library window and go to "Edit, then "Select All."
Be prepared to lose any music not contained by your iTunes library if you haven't been updating automatically, because that music isn't on your computer and will be deleted. However, if you've been updating, there's no need to worry. Press your keyboard's "Delete" button and click "Yes" when you receive the confirmation message.
Copy and Backup
Exit from iTunes and locate both your iPod and your iTunes folder. On a Mac, the iPod should be visible on the desktop and the folder is "/Users/username/Music." In Windows, the iPod is located in "My Computer" and the folder is "\Documents and Settings\username\My Documents\My Music\." Drag the folder to the iPod and wait patiently as the data transfers.
Copy your iTunes folder to your iPod. Drag the folder to the iPod and wait patiently as the data transfers. When it's done, eject the iPod from iTunes and disconnect the iPod.
. Connect your iPod to your new computer and backup any music that's in your new iTunes library. Go to "Preferences," "Advanced" then "Reset." Click "OK." Then navigate to "Advanced," "Consolidate Library" and click "Consolidate."
Copy your music to your new computer. Locate the Music folder on your new computer--it will have the same name as on the old computer--and drag the iTunes folder from it to the desktop. Find your iPod, double-click to open it and drag the iTunes folder copied from your old computer to the new computer's iTunes folder.
Wait as the music is copied to the folder and then open iTunes. The music and all of its accompanying information should sync without problem.

Music no longer on ipod

What youve probably done is unselected the playlists that was previously on your ipod so you could sync the new playlists. By doing this the ipod would automatically delete the old songs off your ipod and then sync the new ones. I'm guessing youve managed to upload new songs onto your ipod?

It could also be your using a different computer and by syncing the ipod to a new computer it would automatically delete previous playlists.

I suggest using a programme called sharepod where you dont need to use itunes and is much more simpler. The link is below.

Grays songs in ipod when connected to Computer

You need to set your iPod to update manually, instead of syncing automatically when you plug it into the computer.

To do this, plug your iPod into your computer, and on the iPod info screen that pops up in iTunes when your iPod is connected, click "Manually Manage Files."
You'll now have to click and drag your songs from your library to your iPod, but now you can also play songs on your computer directly from your iPod and delete songs from your library without deleting them from your iPod at the same time.

Hope this helped!

I have had good experiences with this

SharePod should allow you to upload music from your iPod to your new computer even though your old computer no longer functions properly

If you have iTunes installed on your new computer, do NOT click yes when you plug it in and it asks if you want to format it. Formatting = BAD if you haven't backed up your iPod yet. To use the iPod with your new computer you will need to eventually format it, but not until you back up your stuff...

Hope I helped :)

Connecting ipod to a new laptop

You can actually (or could have) transfer the songs from your
Laptop & iPod by using you iPod like a removable
Hard Disk Drive

Here is the Apple sanctioned method:

Note: While you can use the Transfer Purchase From iPod option under the File menu to copy iTunes Store purchases from the iPod to another computer you can't transfer songs from other sources from the iPod library to iTunes

So you'll need to follow the steps below to use iPod as a hard disk to transfer music files from one computer to another. This process will require the use of iTunes 7 on all computers. Any computers running iTunes 6 or earlier will need to be updated to follow these steps.

Once you have the files transferred, you'll need to authorize any iTunes Store content. If you won't be using your old computer, you'll want to deauthorize it.

Important: Windows operating systems don't recognize Mac OS-formatted disks (HFS or HFS Plus formats), so you can't use a Mac-formatted iPod to move your music to a Windows PC.
Switch the iPod to manual update and enable disk use The first thing you need to do is make sure have configured your iPod to enable disk use. To do this:
  1. Open iTunes on your old computer.
  2. Connect your iPod to your old computer and wait for it to appear in iTunes.
  3. Select your iPod in the Source pane under the Devices section to display your iPod preferences in the main library window.
  4. Click the Summary tab in the main iTunes window.
  5. Click the Manually manage music button. Changing from automatic updating to manual puts a check mark by Enable disk use. A message says:
"Disabling automatic update requires manually unmounting the iPod before each disconnect."

If you need to copy from old computer:
Copy iTunes folder to iPod To copy all your music files (including the library file that holds all your playlists and other settings) to your iPod:
  1. Quit iTunes.
  2. Locate your iPod:
    Mac OS X: On the desktop
    Windows: In My Computer
  3. Locate your iTunes folder:
    Mac OS X: /Users/username/Music
    Windows: \Documents and Settings\username\My Documents\My Music\
  4. Drag the iTunes folder to the iPod. This can take a while if you have a lot of songs.



  • When the copy completes open iTunes.
  • Click on the iPod in the Source pane
  • Click the Eject button in the lower right corner of the iTunes window.
  • Disconnect the iPod from the computer when the "Do not disconnect" message no longer appears on the iPod screen.
Copy music to new computer To copy all your music files (including the library file that holds all your playlists and other settings) to your new computer:
  1. Locate your Music folder (Mac OS X) or your My Music folder (Windows) on your new computer:
    Mac OS X: /Users/username/Music
    Windows: \Documents and Settings\username\My Documents\My Music\
  2. Drag the iTunes folder in this location out to the desktop. 300173_10.gifFrom the My Music folder to the Desktop on your new PC
  • Locate the iPod on the new computer:
  • Mac OS X: On the desktop.
  • Windows: In My Computer.
  • Double-click on the iPod to open it.
  • Drag the iTunes folder from the iPod to the Music folder (Mac OS X) or My Music Folder (Windows) on your new computer. This can take a while if you have a lot of songs.
  • Open iTunes
    There you go. All your music, playlists, and other information like play counts and ratings have all been moved from your old computer to your new one.
If that doesn't cover it fully..... wow!

Not synching correctly with itunes music folder

I know another way you could try formatting which may fix this problem. Restoreing just restores all the setting to your iPod yes it shoudl format as well but it may not due to an error or something.

To do try it another way follow these steps, first click on "Start" - "My Computer" look for you iPod when it's connect usually called "Removable Disk" once you've found it "Right-click" on it then click on "Format", once format is complete disconnect, then connect it again then run "Update" for your iPod and for iTunes, once you've done that have another attempt.

Good luck. Hope my solution was helpful in some way. Further problems leave a comment and i will get back to you.
