Your songs all have different sizes. the 500 songs advertised is just an estimation of about 3mbs per song.
Since some of your songs are over 3mbs, the ipod will not have enough space to fill more than your specified storage amount. (eg. 8gbs.) Try deleting some old songs :) make more space ^_^

When they say that an ipod can hold "500" songs the don't actually know that it can it all depends on the format of the song, the version of firmware etc. my suggestion would be take of all your songs re-format them to mp3 or to something that takes up less space and then put them all back on and there you have it... please comment and rate for any help please pm me... lol

Want to know how many songs ipod nano holds


It would vary as its 4gb but depending the size of your mp3 or since your ripping from CD it'd probably be a high bit rate so more space could you not clear out some space?
4gb usually holds 1,000 songs based off a 4 minute interval

How do i transfer files from itunes to ipod shuffle


First, and most obviuos, plug in your iPod. iTunes should automatically pop up and recognize your iPod shuffle. How many gigs can it hold? When you plug in your iPod to your authorized account, you shuold automatically see iTunes transferring songs into your iPod.
If not, manually transfer songs into your iPod. Select your iPod on the left hand panel of iTunes, where you can look into your iPod. Next, look at the menu that pops up when you click your iPod (it shold show you your iPod, how mny gigs it can hold, etc.). Click 'Manually transfer songs'. From there, you can choose which songs to download into your iPod from iTunes (whichever songs are checked in the little boxes on the left of your songs in your iTunes).

Good luck!

Memory loss on ipod


The ipod nanos the smallest product in the Apple iPod line. The fourth generation Nano comes in two different capacities, each capable of holding thousands of songs.
    Capacities
  1. The fourth generation iPod Nano comes in 8 GB and 16 GB models. The 8 GB version can hold 2,000 songs, and the 16 GB version can hold 4,000 songs.
  2. Tips
  3. Song capacity estimates are based on music encoded in Apple's proprietary format at a standard, average bitrate. The higher the bitrate, the better the quality. Songs deviating from Apple's standard (for example, CD-quality music or high bitrate MP3s) will use more disk space.
  4. History
  5. Nano's predecessor, the iPod Mini, was released on January 6, 2004, and was available with a 4 GB hard drive. The Nano was first released on September 7, 2005, and was the first iPod to use flash memory. It was first available in 2 GB and 4 GB versions. The fourth generation Nano was released on September 9, 2008.
  6. Size
  7. The fourth generation iPod Nano is 3.6" tall and 1.5" wide.
  8. Video
  9. The third generation Nano, released on September 5, 2007, was the first Nano to feature video playback. Storing videos on Nano can dramatically reduce the amount of songs it can hold.

My i-pod nano (2GB) will not hold more than 43 songs when I import from my cd's. My ipod is clear of all songs and so is my library. Are I not suppose to have at least a 500 song capacity?


I have an I-pod nano 4 gb. What I think is going on is you are loading full "wav" files. The 500 songs is predicated on low quality "mp3" songs. Normally, I-tunes will convert the "wav" file to an "mp3" file.

Check your music files on your computer and assure they are "mp3" files. If they are make sure your I-pod does not have other "stuff" on it. Use I-tunes to reset it an "like-new" condition (that removes all files)., then use I-tunes to re-install your music.

If you are downloading files from the I-tunes store make sure they are safe so you do not loose your investment in tunes.

Since they are from cd's make sure the ripped files are safe, then try a re-install.

Should work.

Cheers

Ipod nano 2gb


the way your transfer music to your ipod is download itunes from the internet at www.apple.com/itunes it is FREE and then you can import CD's to your itunes library and then connect your ipod to the USB port on your computer, once you have done that you can chose the songs you want and click one at a time click and hold then drag it to ipod logo it shows it on your itunes program and thats it. ohh.... you can buy songs of the itunes store but you have to create an account and then buy an itunes pre-paid card. it shows you what to do on the back of card!!!

Ipod


First I would suggest you make sure the iPod is connected correctly, and that you wait until the iPod has finished updating.
If you are sure of that, you can always restore the iPod to it's original settings.
(I would also suggest that you are using the most updated version of iTunes)
But before you restore your iPod, there are a few steps you can take to try and fix this problem.
If you can’t download a song or other item to iPod nano 
The song might have been encoded in a format that iPod nano doesn’t support. The 
following audio file formats are supported by iPod nano. These include formats for 
audiobooks and podcasting: 
 AAC (M4A, M4B, M4P) (up to 320 Kbps) 
 Apple Lossless (a high-quality compressed format) 
 MP3 (up to 320 Kbps) 
 MP3 Variable Bit Rate (VBR) 
 WAV

The most common is to reset the iPod. To do this:
  •  toggle the Hold switch on and off ( Set it to hold then turn it off again) 
  • Then press and hold the Center and Menu buttons for at least 6 seconds untill the Apple logo appears.
If this does not work I would consider restoring. This means you will loose all your music,pictures, videos..ect. But from it sounds, you don't have anything on your iPod to loose.
update or restore iPod nano with the latest software: 
1 Go to www.apple.com/support/ipod and download the latest iPod Update. The update 
has the latest software for all models of iPod. 

2 Double-click the software installation file and follow the onscreen instructions to install 
the iPod update. 

3 Connect iPod nano to your computer and open iTunes. The iPod Updater application 
opens. 
If you’re using a Windows PC and the iPod Updater application doesn’t open 
automatically, you can find the updater by choosing Start > All Programs > iPod. 

4 Follow the onscreen instructions to update or restore iPod software. 
If you use the iPod Updater application and it doesn’t recognize that iPod nano is 
connected to your computer, reset iPod nano (see page 45). 
If you want to restore iPod software and you don’t have an Internet connection, you 
can use the iPod Updater application that was installed on your computer when you 
installed the software from the iPod CD.

No room left to download songs


your songs are at or near CD quality. The estimate of 500 songs assumes the songs are encoded in ACC format. Songs encoded in ACC are MUCH smaller than ones at or near CD quality. for example, a CD at CD quality is 750 MB, but at ACC quality, its only 60MB or less. What you want to do is start up iTunes, click the "Edit" button at the top, then hit "preferences". A window will come up, and at the top of that, click the "advanced" tab. then, in the advanced window that comes up, click the "importing" tab. in that window, on the "Import using:" button, select the MP3 encoder. 1. close out the options menu. 2. go to your library, and click on any song. 3. Push "Ctrl A" on your keyboard 4. All the songs should now be selected. 5. right click on any of the blue songs, and push "Uncheck selection" 6. all the songs should still be selected, and unckecked 7. with all the songs still blue, right click again, and puch "Convert to MP3" after it converts, delete all the songs that are unchecked leaving the MP3 songs. Plug in your ipod, and enjoy your music!!
