Need to import photos from my hard drive to my ipod.

It asks me to sync my ipod with my computer; however, it states that anything I already have on my ipod currently will be lost.  My ipod was synced with another computer before.  So how could I get my pics on my ipod without losing what I already have on it??

Re: need to import photos from my hard drive to my ipod.

I personally stay away from itunes as much as possible, you might try downloading winamp and see if it supports pictures.  I also recommend it for maintaining your music.

3rd Generation iPod Touch

The third generation of iPods includes iPod Shuffle, iPod Touch and iPod Nano. Installing the latest software for each of these models involves the same process and requires the latest version of iTunes to perform. The 3rd generation iPod Touch uses the same iOS 4 operating system that the iPhone uses. You can download the latest version of iTunes from the Apple website for free. With iTunes, you can install the most up-to-date software on any 3rd generation iPod for free as well.

Download iTunes from the Apple website or check for the latest update by clicking "Help" at the top of the screen. Scroll down to "Check for Updates." Open iTunes either by clicking its icon in the Start menu or by connecting your iPod to your computer with the sync cable. This cable looks like an ordinary USB cable with a special attachment on the end that plug into your iPod. If you have lost your original cable, you will need to purchase a replacement. Any type of iPod sync cable will work, as long as it is compatible with your 3rd generation model. Wait for iTunes to update or restore your iPod automatically. Enter your iPod's name in the top field when you are prompted. Check the box next to "Automatically update songs on my iPod" if you want iTunes to sync your hard drive's playlist with your iPod every time you plug in your iPod. Select your iPod from the "Source" list on the left side of the screen if you need to update your software. This will take you to a screen with links to iPod software updates. Click on "Check for Update" to look for the most up-to-date iPod software, and click "Download" and "Install" to install the software. Do not unplug your iPod during installation. Check the box next to "Automatically copy photos to my iPod" to sync a photo folder on your hard drive with an iPod with a color screen. Choose the folder you wish to sync with your iPod from the "Synchronize photos from" menu. Click "Next" to move to the final screen. Click "Register My iPod" to send your personal information to Apple and then click "Finish" to end the installation. Your iPod will appear in the "Source" list on the left side of the screen.

How to import pictures onto my iPod Touch

<p>Music Player Apple iPod Touch can store personal photos along with music files and video. ITunes, the same program as the applications of music and movies on the iPod's controls, you can also synchronize photos stored on a computer to the internal memory of the iPod Touch. The setup process requires only a single session, then iTunes will automatically update the photos on the device when synced folder content change. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Note the location of the photos you want to import into your computer's hard drive. You can consolidate the images easier to synchronize, or create a new folder specifically for the iPod photo. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Connect the iPod Touch to the computer via the USB cable supplied with the unit, and wait for iTunes to open. If the system is running a Windows operating system without iTunes installed, you can download from the Apple website. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Click on the iPod Touch icon in the device list. Select the "Photos" tab. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Click the "Sync Photos" check box and drop-down menu. Click "Select Folder" and navigate to the parent folder that holds the images and click OK. You do not select a specific subdirectory. <br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Click the radio button "All Folders" to import all the photos on the parent folder, or click the "Selected folders" to select individual folders to import. The second option is chosen, place a check mark next to items in the "Folders" section. <br /> <p><br /> <p>6. Click "Apply" and wait for iTunes to the new data to synchronize with the iPod Touch. When finished, press the "eject" and unplug the device. The next time the iPod is connected to the computer updates the video library on iTunes from changes in synchronized folders. <br />

I am having trouble adding new material to my ipod shuffle I bought this last year and it is one of the matchbox sized ones I'm not sure what you call these. I tried to add some music to this on my home...

When you initially set up your ipod on one computer and then plug it into a different one, it will ask you if you wish to sync the songs with the new computer.


If you wish to manually drop and drag songs, you can do this as well and it will ask you if you want to use your ipod like a disk (like a flash drive.)

My suggestion is to import all of your songs you want on your home computer. You can drag songs from your "Library" to your ipod, simply select and drag them to the ipod icon.

If you want to charge your ipod at work just plug it in, don't click anything and then eject it. Or click import songs manually.

Itunes dont regocnise my ipod,so i cant update or add any tracks

Most of the time, your iPod won't come up because of a slightly dodgy hard drive. There's a couple of ways to solve this. The first one would be to get another iPod of the same model from a trusting friend or something, take the back off and swop the hard drives. Then plug the other iPod in. It will want to restore. Go through the restore and then swop it back. It should ask to restore now in your iPod. The second one is to buy a zif 1.8" usb hard drive caddy from ebay (should be under £10). Open it and attach your hard drive, wait for it to be recognized by your PC, then right click on it and format it as FAT32. Put it back in your iPod and it should want to restore. Or, buy a new hard drive.

Summary iTunes 4.7 and later has the ability to sync photos from your computer to any iPod with a color display (including Fifth Generation iPod, iPod nano and iPod photo). Find out the answers to common questions about photo syncing.
Products Affected iTunes, iPod, iPod nano, iPhoto 4.x, iPhoto 5.x, iPhoto 6.x, iPhoto 7.x, Windows, Adobe Phototshop
What sources can iTunes sync from?
iTunes 4.7 and later for Mac OS X can sync from:
  • iPhoto 4.0.3 or later
  • A selected folder of photos
iTunes 4.7 and later for Windows can sync from:
  • Adobe Photoshop Album 1.0
  • Adobe Photoshop Elements 3.0
  • A selected folder of photos
Note: You cannot select a folder to which you do not have write access, like a CD. Later versions of Adobe Photoshop Album are not compatible. iTunes will only present the option to select a folder if a later versions is installed.
How much hard drive space do I need to sync my photos?
You need to have about as much free space on your hard drive as the size of your collection of photos. iTunes constructs a photo database on your hard drive in order to make photo syncing fast when you add new photos in the future.
What file formats can I sync to my iPod?
See iPod: Compatible photo formats for a list of file formats that can be used.
Can I sync my photos to my iPod manually?
You can't drag individual photos or groups of photos to the iPod like you can with music files in iTunes, but you can choose how you want them to be synchronized (see below) by selecting the correct options:
iTunes 7 or later:
  1. Connect your iPod to your computer.
  2. Select the iPod icon when it appears in the iTunes window (below devices).
  3. If the Photos pane does not show, click the Photos tab.
  4. Select your photo syncing options.
In iTunes 6.0.5 or earlier:
  1. Connect your iPod to your computer.
  2. Select Preferences from the iTunes menu (Macintosh) or Edit menu (Windows).
  3. Select iPod.
  4. Select Photos.
  5. Select your photo syncing options.
The syncing options include:
  • If you use iPhoto 4.0.3 or later in Mac OS X, you can have iTunes automatically sync all of your photos and albums or just certain albums every time you connect your iPod.

  • If you are using Adobe Photoshop Elements versions 3.0 or later, you can sync all of your photos or just certain collections of photos.

  • If you are using Adobe Photoshop SE in Windows, you can sync either all of your photos or certain collections of photos. If you are using Adobe Photoshop Album SE in Windows, you can only sync all of your photos. Note: While Photoshop Album allows you to sync only certain collections, Photoshop Album SE does not allow you to assign collection tags that are required for this to work.
  • If you are not using any of the above applications, you can sync all of the photos in a selected folder, or only photos in specific folders inside the selected folder. Folders inside the selected folder will be displayed as photo albums on the iPod, but not subfolders beneath them.
Can I add photos from multiple computers or user accounts to one iPod?
No, adding photos can only happen from one computer or user account.
Can I sync photos from my iPod to another computer?
No, all photo syncing is one way only, from computer to iPod. You can put full-quality copies of all your photos on the iPod in the options available in the Photos pane. Then drag the full-quality photos out of the Photos folder on an iPod that has disk mode enabled to any other computer.
What does it mean when "Optimizing for iPod" appears in iTunes and what happens if I cancel?
iTunes creates TV-quality versions of your photos and stores them in a database on your computer. This makes it much faster when you add new photos to your iPod later. If you cancel this optimization, the photos are not added to the iPod.

60 gb ipod photo sync issues! =(

I don't believe its a File Problem, My lads Ipod has the same error -69 and will not sync, However it will also not sync on my Itunes which syncs fine with my 30gb IPOD and my Ipod also syncs fine on his computer.

So can't see where the file problem could be...

I know this doesn't help but there seems to be so many people looking in the wrong place (In my opinion)

Using iTunes, connect the iPod to the PC u are using and right click on the track. This should bring up an options menu and u need to click the tab that says artwork. If its not thier already, copy/paste the artwork in and if its a full album u want to do, hold shift while selecting multiple tracks and do the same. Then in iPod options, show aretwork..... Et Voila
