What happened was I just bought 2 new songs, and
I was gonna sync them into my iPod, but no matter how many times I
tried it wouldn't work
then, when I checked my iPod, all my songs were gone, and when I
tried to put them back it would not work, it says my iPod is full when
in reality there's no data.

Re: Cant add music, music erased
Looks like at least you're going to need to do a restore. if you still can't sync music after the restore you may need a new logic board. there are websites that show you how to replace the logic board.

Generally speaking, you'll clean up your iPod with iTunes to erase unwanted songs and add new songs. You have two ways to delete music from iPod with iTunes, and they can be helpful when you want to get rid of the unwanted songs. iTunes provides automatic and manual methods to help you manage the songs in your device. When you are using the automatic way to manage iPod music, every time you connect iPod to computer with USB cable, your iPod will sync with iTunes Music library. If you have your iTunes Music library organized, you can delete unwanted music from iPod with this easy method. If you want to manually edit your iPod music, you can check Prevent iPods, iPhones and iPads from syncing automatically in iTunes by clicking Edit > Preferences > Devices. Then you can manually sync the songs and playlists to your iPod with iTunes. How to Delete Music from iPod
First of all when you sync your ipod with another computer all of your songs, videos and etc will erase by itunes application.Example the first sync was on your desktop using itunes and it was successfully transferred the songs and videos. But you want to add songs from your laptop, so copy the songs to your usb flash drive or external hard drive then paste it to your desktop computer. Then plug your ipod to your desktop computer and run the itunes application then add songs you want to transfer,by syncing or copying the song to your ipod your old songs will not be erase. Have a nice day
this is what you will do, when you sync it again stop the automatic sync the click on your player on the itunes window to see its details, you will see 3 or 4 checkboxes and check manually add music or songs and ucncheck if there is any, the box that says automatically sync music, then click sync, it will start syncing again the disconnect. add songs only to the folder where itunes have got the songs so that next time you sync the ipod the songs previously added wont be erased.

This happens some times the computer has lost the record that the ipod was synced with this computer.
Because the ipod can only be synced with one computer at a time your are getting this message.
if you look in your itunes music library and all the muisc is still there then choose the "erase and sync option" this will erase the ipod and re- sync with this computer -
if your muisc is gone you have a much larger problem you need to search your computer for your missing music then add it back to itune when you find it by :
In itunes you go to the upper left to : File > add Folder to Library > and choose the folder the music is in this will re- add your music to the libray then you can " "erase and sync"
If all you music is gone off your computer a only on your ipod your going to have to download a free ipod rip program to remove all you muisc and put it back into your library. there are free ones you can downalod but they are hard to find I have used www.ipodrescue.com and it worked for me
This was happening to my ipod but then i saw that all the songs werent checked off to sync so you have to make sure that thats the problem. If thats not it then try dragging the new songs to the ipod sign under my ipod.
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
You can either do a restore: Connect to your computer and open itunes. When you first open itunes you should be in "Devices" Make sure you're in the "Summary" tab and you will have a button that says "Restore" Click that and it will do the rest.
Or Sync with an itunes library that has no files on it, this will also remove the files from your ipod.
