Itunes wont let me play the songs i have loaded

When I click onto a song in itunes (one taken from my own cd) I get a dialogue box with the message saying "Itunes cannot locate the song, would I like to locate it?" Thing is it says this for all my 25000 songs and I dont want to spend my life reallocating songs to files. I have tried removing the itunes programme from my PC and reinstalling from the web, but it makes no difference. What is going on and can you help PLEASE.... it is driving me nuts! Dan.

    Hi Ipodslinger,



    Very helpful information up until you advise to drop songs into "the first column of the large white area in the music folder". Sorry, but I dont know how to find/do this. Looking forward very much to your comment.



    Best regards,



    Dan.

Your itunes library is not being found by iTunes or you are on another computer.
in the summary screen which can be located in the upper tabs or by clicking on the ipod next to your name, uncheck the automatically sync music and this will give you the ability to load music to your ipod manually. just open the drive and drag and drop songs to your ipod by dropping them in the first column of the large white area in the music folder.
If you have moved your itunes library you can click on edit and then preferences and choose advanced. browse for your music folder and save it.
Warning: do not change your music folder if you are automatically syncing songs unless all of your music is stored there. because it will sync and delete anything not found in that folder.

    Hi,
    Sorry for assuming, sometimes i do that.
    when you open your itunes program and the ipod actually hooks up.
    the first page you will see is the summary screen.
    it shows a picture of your model of ipod and says the ipod name and has some check boxes.
    one says automatically sync music, the box if left check will sync your playlists.
    I would recommend to uncheck that box and learn to load your music manually.
    the playlists are located on the left side of the screen at the bottom.
    above the playlists is your ipod and it's content.you will see an ipod icon and some folders below.
    one says music. and a few other folder are below the music folder.
    if you click on the music folder the page that opens is the music folder, the large white window is to the right of the column with your ipods folders.
    inthat white box there are numerous columns
    the first column is the song names and going right other information about the tracks.
    with your music file open and the white area showing, go to your my computer and find the fiolder with the music you want to load open the folder and maximize it on top of the itunes screen.
    Click on a song and drag it from your music folder to the first column of the itumes music folder and Hold it over the first column until a blue outline appears surrounding the folder window and drop it.
    You will see it load onto your ipod.
    to load multiple song at once. click on the first song in your music folder and it will highlight.
    go down several songs and holding the SHIFT ke down on your keyboard, click on another song.
    this will hightlight all the songs in between. Drag them all to the music window of itunes, wait for the blue outline to appear and drop them. they will all load onto your ipod.
    if you have any problems let me know
    Happy Loading Ipodslinger

My ipod a1137 is showing data but i am not able to play the song


Hi, your ipod displaying data and not playing might be because you did not transfer the music properly or the format of the music does not play on an ipod.

You will need a converter to help you convert songs into an ipod format. Download from the below link:

effectmatrix.com/total-video-converter/



You can follow the instruction below to know how to transfer music into an ipod.::

Most common problem for new ipod user is how to put music onto ipod. So I created this ipod tips to solve this problem. Windows media player is not able to upload songs to ipod. You must use Apple iTunes to get music onto your iPod. Windows Media Player can see the iPod as a hard disk. But not able to copy upload music from pc to ipod.

The steps to put music onto an Apple iPod with itune.
When you plug ipod to your pc first time through USB, you might get this pop up message. If you have already installed itune .


You need to restart your computer to install ipod and then the next time you start up, your iPod will not generate any messages of this nature.
You need to install itune on your computer if you have not installed itune. You can simply go to apple.com/itunes to download the latest version. It also comes with ipod CD.
The next step is to launch the iTunes program. And it will recognize the ipod that you have plugged in

It shows one message to give name to ipod, You can stick with the default name for your device or give name to ipod.
I also uncheck "automatically update music" because I like to control what happens to my iPod manually.
When you're done with this configuration step, click "Next" :
register your iPod, or just click "Finish".

Step 1

Now, finally, you can see iTunes and also your ipod inside your itune:
Click on whatever name you've given to your own iPod, and you'll see your music list, which is completely blank:



Now click on the "Library" link on the left column and you'll see what albums or music you've copied into your iTunes library. Or click on the "Browse" button on the top right (it looks like an all-seeing eye) and a new panel will show up with lists of songs, artists and albums.

Now select the song you want to put on to your ipod. then dragging and dropping that onto the name of the iPod on the left side panel of your itune. Now your song are copied to ipod.


Hope it helped.
Feel free to pass your comment.

Good luck..

Down loas music


This is an "Mp3-CD player," which is not the same as an "Mp3 player." This device will only play mp3 songs that are recorded onto a CD in audio format. It will not take songs from iTunes, etc. By the way, iTunes songs are AAC format, rather than Mp3 format, so you can't just burn iTunes songs onto a CD and expect it to work with this player either. Sorry.

I cannot download songs from itunes onto my sansa


This can get quite difficult due to copyright problems. Even though you legally purchased the music, ITunes uses something called Digital Rights Management to keep people from doing anything illegal with their products. In addition, the Sansa media player most likely does not support MP4 format, which is what ITunes plays music in. Hopefully, you dont have many songs you are wanting to do this with. You have 1 of 3 options that I know of:

1. -Burn all files onto a blank cd.
-Re-load the files into itunes from the blank cd (Import) (This
strips the DRM and should allow you to put the music into a
foreign player). You will, however, lose the artwork from the
songs and will have to re-name them most likely.
-You will also have duplicate songs in ITunes until you delete
the copy you dont want (or keep it).
2. Purchase a software like noteburner which can strip DRM for
you (does the same as option 1, just cleaner). Costs approx.
$35.00
3. Trade the Sansa for an IPOD.

Deleted songs


Look in the music folder (top left of the main itunes page). You should see all of your songs there. If they are there, then plug in your ipod, click on the name of your ipod (left hand ide of the screen) and check the box on the main screen that says (manually manage music). Then go back to the main music folder again, and select all of the songs, (you can do this by clicking on the first ong in the list, hold down the shift key and then click on the last song in the list), then drag and drop all of the songs onto your ipod in the list at the left.
