Unable to transfer music files to iPod Shuffle in iTunes

When I attempt to copy (drag & drop) music files to my iPod shuffle from the library, it appears to go through the motions as if it is doing something (except there is no rotating arrows in a circle as per normal iTunes at work). When I check the iPod shuffle when free to do so(after it has 'transferred' the files, NOT), it is empty. I also use an iPod classic which is generally ok. I have uninstalled, reinstalled and updated iTunes on numerous occasions, but with no luck.

What I would do is restore your ipod. Here is how to do that:

  1. Connect the iPod to your computer with the USB cable that came with your iPod, and open iTunes.
  2. After a few moments, you should see the iPod appear in the left panel of iTunes, under Devices.
  3. Click once on the name of the iPod under Devices, and you should see a summary of your iPod appear in iTunes.
  4. Click on Restore, and iTunes will start reformatting your iPod.
  5. After your iPod has been reformatted, you will probably be prompted to plug it into a wall outlet to complete the restore process.
  6. After you plug your iPod into a wall outlet via a wall charger, you will be able to transfer all of your files back onto your iPod. Connect your iPod to your computer again, and your iTunes will sync all your files. You should then be able to use your iPod to listen to music, watch videos, or view photos without any problems.

How to add new mp3 songs


Install iTunes
Before you connect your iPod shuffle to your Mac or PC computer or use it, you must install the latest iTunes software.
2. Connect and Set Up your iPod shuffle Charge your battery by connecting it to an Apple iPod Power Adapter or connect your iPod to a high-power USB port —one that's located directly on your computer—to ensure that your computer charges your iPod battery. (If your computer doesn't seem to recognize your connected iPod , wait about 30 minutes to allow the iPod battery to charge before going further.)
3. Fill your iPod shuffle and iTunes with Music Once you finish the set up, iTunes will open. It will then either:
  • Automatically start filling your iPod with music from your iTunes library (if you set iTunes to automatically update your iPod)
OR
  • Allow you to pick and choose what music, audiobooks, and podcasts to add, if you opted to manually manage music on your iPod.
To manually add content, simply drag any file from your iTunes library or playlist to your iPod icon in the iTunes Source list. If you're using iTunes for the very first time, you'll need to add some music to iTunes first, such as songs from your own CDs or music already on your hard drive.
4. Disconnect your iPod shuffle Once you've got your music, audiobooks, and other files on your iPod, you're ready to enjoy it.
  • If you see an “OK to Disconnect” message on your iPod, simply disconnect it from your computer.
  • If you see a “Do Not Disconnect” message, click the eject icon that appears next to your iPod icon in the iTunes Source list and then disconnect your iPod from your computer when you see the “OK to Disconnect” message.
  • Disconnecting my iPod shuffle
5. Play your iPod shuffle Now you’re ready to enjoy your iPod.

How to play mp3 song from my computer to ipod shuffle wihout using itunes?


You may try this ipod transfer, it's a nice iTunes alternative that can help you manage iPod files including delete, upload, play, copy, etc. It's much easier to use than iTunes. It can also help you manage multiple iPods on one computer or manage iPod on multiple computers, even copy music and video from iPod back to computer or iTunes. So you will not lose your iPod files even though you switch to a new iTunes library. My friends recommend it to me, it works pretty well.

Can not hook up my ipod


You need to download iTunes and create a library. Once you have iTunes installed...follow these steps.

  1. Add music to your hard drive by inserting CD's into your computer. When you put in a CD it may ask you to import the music into your library, or you may have to click the button on the lower right that says import music. iTunes generally finds the song titles and CD name by itself, but if the CD is obscure or a local band you may have to type it yourself.
  2. iTunes will automatically add the music you took from the CD to your library.
  3. You can also add music you may already have on your computer by going to File> Add file to library or File> Add folder to library. Once you have added all of the music you want to put on the shuffle, go to step 4.
  4. You can now plug in your iPod. iTunes should recognize the iPod pretty quickly. You will see it under a tab on the left called devices. Once it finds the iPod, you should be able to select music from your library and drag it directly to the Shuffle.
  5. You can click on the iPod's icon in the left side column and do several different things. But mainly I would just use it to see how much space you have left for your music.
It's as easy as that! Comment on this post if you need more help.
