Question about Apple iPod nano

Downloaded music to itunes last night, when I tried to sync with ipod nano, it took ages, and then came up with error message on computer saying something like "cannot locate disk" and then I tried again and it said, "unable to sync as playlist on ipod has changed" - what do I do. I really need this music for Saturday night for a party (I'm in charge of the music). I tried resetting ipod, I tried restoring - nothing worked. I spent 3 hours trying.... am very very frustrated!

It let you restore it and you still get "unable to sync as playlist on ipod has changed"? I think that the restore was an erase and install and complete re-Sync of it. I think you need to try the restore function again and make sure it completely re-syncs before trying to do anything with it.

I bought an ipod 2gig nano with 117 songs downloaded. I like maybe 30. how can I delete the other songs?


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.

Hi, basicly i got my blue ipod nano 2nd gen off my friend and when i downloaded itunes suddenly all my music was deleted and a message saying empty disk and when i try to sync music i have errors on every...


Normally, you cannot sync an ipod to more than one system at a time. You have to wipe out all the songs that it previously occupied before so that it can accept songs from a new computer.
It is quite normal for all the songs that were previously on it to be flushed out when you connect it to a new computer.
Now to the main issue of getting errors on every song, this is not normal.
The only solution to this is to restore the software using the itunes program.
This will help you format the memory of the device thereby removing any sort of system errors or malfunctions in the system of the device.
Hope this was helpful? Please comment for more information and thank you for using fixya.

How to down load a song to my appleipod nano 2gb?


To download songs to iPod nano: m Simply connect iPod nano to your computer. If iPod nano is set to update automatically, the download begins. Important: The first time you connect iPod nano to a computer, a message asks if you want to transfer songs automatically. If you accept, all songs, audiobooks, and other items are deleted from iPod nano and replaced with the songs and other items from that computer. If you don’t accept, you can still download songs to iPod nano manually without deleting any of the songs already on iPod nano. While music is being downloaded from your computer to iPod nano, the iTunes status window shows progress, and the iPod nano icon in the Source list flashes red. When the download is complete, a message in iTunes says “iPod update is complete.” If you set iTunes to download music manually, you can reset it later to update iPod nano automatically. For more information, see “Updating iPod nano Manually” on page 22. To reset iTunes to update iPod nano automatically with all songs and playlists: 1 Open iTunes and select iPod nano in the Source list. 2 Click the Options button and click Music. 3 Select “Automatically update all songs and playlists.” The download begins automatically.
if you need further assistance please let me know. Thanks, MIDWEst-tek

Ipod 4th gen showing music on pc but not on ipod


From the apple website:

"If you are experiencing these errors, begin by updating to the latest version of iTunes. When you have the current version of iTunes, try the following:
  • Disconnect and reconnect your iPod and then attempt to restore.
  • Restart your computer and then attempt to restore your iPod.
  • Disable or Enable Disk Use on your iPod and then attempt to restore.
  • Try connecting your iPod to a different USB port and then attempt to restore.
  • Remove any third-party USB devices you have connected to your computer (it is not necessary to remove your keyboard or mouse).
  • If you use Windows, re-register .dll files as described in article iTunes displays -50 error message when syncing iPod on Windows XP
  • For Windows users, update or reinstall your Windows USB drivers."

If this doesn't fix it, it might be a logic board issue or hard drive issue.

IPod nano (3rd generation) not syncing


What seems to have happened is that either iTunes or the iPod folder has become corrupt. To solve this, download the very latest version of iTunes, install it, connect your iPod. If it wants to update the software on your iPod do this. Then on the main ipod page on iTunes click the button that says Restore. Choose the bottom most option if given any then go ahead and restore. You should now be able to sync as normal.

All the best
