My ipod is not connecting to my system

Hi,you can use your iPod to a Windows and Mac, in conjunction with a USB port. Any iPod with dock connector, which has one, can be plugged into a USB 2.0 port. For a system to transmit data and provide access to information on your iPod, it is important that the system initially, we should recognize as a real device. But if your system is not, then the probability that the internal structure of the iPod is corrupted and you need to reformat. After formatting, if you have deleted the backup to restore the data youYou must use iPod Data Recovery Tools.

For example, if you connect your iPod to your Windows-based system with a USB port, you can the following error message:

"USB Device Not Recognized

80 gb ipod gets 160 songs then dies what do i do??


Check to see if the files are in the proper format to play in the iPod. If they are not, they will not load.

I would also check to see if the hard drive is working properly. It sounds like it is not. When you connect it to iTunes, check to see how much space there is. There are probably bad sectors on the hard drive that has limited the usable space on the hard drive. . Hope that helps.

Formatting should not be nessary. Use itunes, and restore. If you want to use the ipod for extra storage etc, use itunes and "Enable Disc Usage". then it will appear in "My Computer" and you can acess the files and folders for file transfers.

Memory problem

i this is not original apple ipod... then how to find is it original or not may be ur question?
here is the answer first when you buy the duplicate will also show 2 gb because some cheaters install other software for ipod and make it to show 2 gb but what actually is it s original memory will be 512 mb or 1 gb when you try to copy copy more than this capcity it will copy but after once again you cant get back that data stored in the exceeded space ... so error will come some thing like "the file is damaged" some thing like that then we will think may due to some error or due virus data is not available when we actually fully format it then only we will come to know it s duplicate... thats y now a days when we buy ipods we must buy original with bill... if there is a bill there will be warranty so..
now let s come to point if ur s is original then u just give for full format and then have look at the capacity... it occurs in original also some times due to bad sector formation.. so give for full format before giving full format just check for errors .. if it is original you will get back your real capacity back...

Loading songs - format message

if you've used wmp to rip and encode the cd to the wma file standard, the ipod won't play them. the ipod doesn't support wma or ogg vorbis (and doesn't support the pro part of mp3 pro) you need to encode your files to either mp3 or aac (or leave them as wav files, though these are very large) for the ipod to play them. this may be causing the mmjb transfer problems.

check out the software compendium on info on alternatives to rip, encode and transfer to the ipod.

Photo formats

iPod Main | iPod Q & A (Main) | Next Q & A Section Q & A: iPod Q & A: Transfer & Connectivity (6/6) What graphics formats does the iPod photo/"Color" recognize? iPod nano? According to Apple Support Document #300241, on the Mac, iTunes 4.7 (and higher) can recognize and prepare "JPG, TIFF, PICT, GIF, PNG, JPG2000 or JP2, PSD, SGI, and BMP" images for display on the iPod photo/"Color" and iPod nano. On Windows, iTunes 4.7 (and higher) can recognize and prepare "JPG , JPEG, BMP, GIF, TIF, TIFF, and PNG" images from "Adobe Photoshop Album and Adobe Photoshop Elements" for display on the iPod photo/"Color" and iPod nano. However, in disk mode, you can copy any type of file to the iPod for transport to another computer.

Can I view photos on my iPod photo/"Color"? nano?

Depending on the model, to view photos on your iPod photo/"Color", you either need to import photographs using Apple's iPod Camera Connector, or transfer images from your computer through iTunes 4.7 or higher to the iPod. For the current iPod U2 Special Edition "Color", iPod "Color" (20.0 GB), the version of the iPod photo (60 GB) introduced on February 23, 2005 and renamed iPod "Color" (60 GB) on June 28, 2005, as well as the discontinued iPod photo (30 GB), the simplest way to transfer photos from many digital cameras to your iPod is to purchase and use Apple's iPod Camera Connector (US$29). This device simply allows you to directly connect a digital camera to the camera connector and in turn connect the camera connector to the iPod "dock" port. Photos imported using the iPod Camera Connector are immediately viewable, with the exception of RAW format images and video clips. However, photos imported using the iPod Camera Connector cannot be immediately viewed as a slideshow with transitions. On versions of the iPod photo (40 GB, 60 GB) released prior to February 23, 2005, photos transferred directly from a digital camera using an iPod-compatible media reader are not immediately viewable, but photos transferred through iTunes 4.7 or higher, which converts photos into a "thumbnail" format, can be viewed on the iPod photo itself or displayed using the iPod photo connected to a TV or projector. The iPod nano, introduced September 7, 2005, can display photographs on the internal display "loaded" from a computer, but as it lacks video out, it cannot display photographs on a television or projector. The iPod nano also does not support the iPod Camera Connector or third-party solutions, so photos cannot be transferred from a camera. For information regarding the iPod nano and accessory compatibility, please refer to Apple Support
