Re: Ipod music shows up on the computer, but no songs...
Make sure when you sync the music, you selected all music and everything you want is checked off. And before you disconect, be sure your capacity bar thingy is higher up than before. Otherwise I would sugest you restore the settings and try again.

Bearshare is a program that can be used to download and listen to audio files on your computer. You can also use Bearshare to put music directly onto your iPod or portable music player. Using Bearshare to add songs to your iPod will save you the time of having to search for your downloaded files using iTunes. By using Bearshare, you can download a new song and place that song directly onto your iPod without having to open another software program.
Download the latest version of Bearshare (see Below). http://www.bearshare.com/ Install Bearshare onto your computer. When you do, Bearshare will search for audio files that are already on your computer. The program will then add those files to the "My Library" portion of Bearshare. Open Bearshare. Click the "iPod/Mp3 Player" option on the left side of Bearshare. Plug your iPod into your computer. A dialog box will open on your screen. Click "OK." The "iPod/Mp3 Player" option will be replaced with the name of your iPod. Click the "My Library" option in the top left corner of Bearshare. Any songs that you added when installing Bearshare or that you have downloaded with Bearshare will appear on the screen. Click on the song and then drag the file over to the name of your iPod found on the left side of the screen. Doing so will add that song to your iPod. Continue doing this until you are finished adding songs to your iPod. Disconnect the iPod and close Bearshare.
Step 1: an itunes account ? b> An iPod is a portable media player that lets users listen to music wherever they are. Before you can listen to songs on the iPod, you must first put music onto the device. If you have been using different MP3 players in the past, adding music to an iPod can be slightly confusing. The reason for this is that iPods are not compatible with Windows Media Player, Real Player or Winamp. By using iTunes, however, you can add music to any iPod.
• Open iTunes. • 2 Add music to iTunes. To do this, click "File." Choose "Add Folder to Library." Then, find the folder on your computer that holds the music you wish to put onto the iPod. Highlight that folder and click "OK." The music will be put into the iTunes Library. • • 3 Plug the iPod into the computer. After a few seconds, you will see the iPod listed under "Devices" on the left-hand side of iTunes. • 4 Click "Music" under the "Library" option on the left-hand side of iTunes. All of the music files in the iTunes Library will then be shown in the middle of iTunes. • 5 Double-click the album that contains the music you want to put onto the iPod. The songs on that album will then be listed. • 6 Highlight the song you want to add to the iPod. • 7 Drag that file over to the name of your iPod located under "Devices" (as mentioned in Step 3). The song will then be placed onto the iPod. Do this for all of the music you want to put onto the iPod. • 8 Click the "All Albums" button at the top of iTunes to get back to the list of albums on the iTunes Library. • 9 Repeat Steps 5-7 until you are done putting music on the iPod. • 10 Disconnect the player when you are done.
Use iPod shuffle to: - Load songs for listening on the go - Listen to podcasts, downloadable radio-style shows delivered over the Internet - Listen to audiobooks purchased from the iTunes Store or audible.com - Store or back up files and other data, using iPod shuffle as an external disk
Install iTunes in your Lap.. the connect the iPod to the computer using the doc and add the songs to the Music Library then to the iPod
you need to make sure all the songs in your library are selected by viewing the songs in LIST view, and check mark the songs you want to sync with your ipod.
you can also unsync your ipod and it will remove all the songs from your ipod. Now close Itunes and re-launch it, sync your ipod again.
This simply means that the iPod is in Auto sync mode. To be able to listen to your music on your iPod through iTunes you will need to change the settings on the summary page that loads when you first connect the iPod. You want to deselect the Automatically sync all checked items, then select the Manually manage option. After that click Apply. You will now be able to listen to the songs on the iPod though iTunes, but the iPod will no longer auto sync to your computer.
the only way to get the songs of to save then is to use a program to rip the songs from you ipod to your computer such as CopyTransSuite as for adding and deleting songs, whe the ipod mounts on itunes uncheck the automatically sync music button and you can ckick the music folder and delete by right clicking and delete if the songs are in someone elses library, if you sync your ipod to your computer the songs will be deleted. use caution... hope this helps
No, be reassured, it is not dead. Be sure you have the latest version of itunes AND ipod software installed. That will most likely solve your problems. If you have moved things around in the ipod hard disk on your computer, restoring would have solved it. So just make sure you're up to date ;)
