Your computer has its own personal i-tunes for your i-pod and all your music is saved to that computer so if you plug your i-pod into someone elses computer it will eighther sync all thier music to your i-pod or it will erase all the music on your i-pod they dont have on thier sujjestion is to buy a plug in to the wall charger for your i-pod if your barely home to charge it. that way you keep your music yet charge your i-pod to.

My computer crashed. I dowloaded itunes to new one but it won't let me sync the songs I didn't purchase from itunes on my nano.

iTunes will let you transfer your purchased songs from your iPod to your new iTunes as detailed here

For the rest of your iPod music, you will need to use a program like TouchCopy to copy your iPod content onto your computer or straight to your new iTunes. TouchCopy lets you copy all your music, video, photos, contacts, notes, calendars, games and more from your iPod.

To copy your iPod music using TouchCopy, you will need to...
1. Download and install TouchCopy on your computer. TouchCopy works with all iPod types and the iPhone. There are free PC and Mac downloads available from here

2. Ensure that iTunes is closed before connecting your iPod. Then start TouchCopy and connect your iPod. TouchCopy will have fixed your iTunes preferences so that iTunes will not sync music or video with your iPod while TouchCopy is running. These changes are restored when you quit TouchCopy.

3. Use TouchCopy to copy all your iPod content to your computer hard drive or straight into iTunes.

4. You can then use iTunes to re-sync your iPod, which will re-load your iPod with all your music and let you add new content to it too.

Uninstall itunes from your computer and re-install the same itunes version you had before. Make sure your ipod is fully charged and then plug it in and have a go at it.

Cheers old chap.

When I plug my ipod into my computer, it doesn't show up anywhere. Neither in "My Computer" or itunes. I'm running Windows XP Professional. I've tried resetting and forcing it to disk mode, reinstalling...

Maybe you should try this third ipod manager tool - Daniusoft iPod transfer:

1. Sync videos/songs from computer to iPod without iTunes ;
2. Backup videos/songs off iPod to computer smoothly ;
3. Transfer iPod video/music to iTunes .

I always use it to sync my iPod when my iTunes can't recognize my iPod, it's easy to use and works pretty well.

I have downloaded music onto my computer and want to transfer it to my ipod shuffle. How do I do this?

You just need to import your song into iTunes library, then make a playlist with the songs, plug in your iPod to computer, iTunes will detect the iPod automatically, then click iTunes menu "File -> Sync iPod", the songs will be transferred from iTunes to iPod.
For more tips about iPod, you may refer to this iPod FAQ. Hope it helps. Contact me if you have any other question.

How To Add songs on ipod?

You need to use iTunes, download it here: Now if you bought your iPod used you won't have to go through the iPod set up, but if you did buy new then you will have to. After you've done all this, you need to add all your songs to your iTunes library, you can burn your CDs to it or buy them off the iTunes store. Then plug your iPod into your computer and select it in the iTunes sidebar, now if you want to manually put your songs onto your iPod, then scroll all the way down and check the box that says "Manually manage Music and Videos" if you want iTunes to automatically put all your songs onto your ipod then just click "Sync."

Hope this helps!

Music on iPods with different s/Nos. mixed up

Connect iPod to computer.
Open up iTunes.
Click on the icon on the left sidebar of iTunes that says "iPod Nano".
Click on the Music tab.
You will notice that at least one folder has been set to "Sync music" - the songs in these folders will be automatically loaded onto your iPod everytime you connect it to your computer. I would suggest separating the music folders that you use and the folders that your wife uses on your computer itself. Then, you can sync only the songs in your own personal folder.
Alternatively, you can disable the "Sync Music" option altogether by unchecking the box.

Whichever choice you make, you will now need to manually go in and delete the songs you don't want.
You can do this by clicking on the Music icon underneath the iPod Nano icon on the left sidebar of iTunes. Find a song you no longer want on your iPod, right-click the song, and select delete.

Good luck!

Cant get songs onto ipod shuffle.(daughter has ipod touch)

Hi there,
When you go into the ipod section on iTunes, click the music tab, make sure 'sync music' is checked and 'selected playlists:' is also, then check the playlist you want to use. Click 'sync' button

If that don't work go back to the summary tab and hit 'restore' and follow the instructions to reset the ipod, resync and all should be fine.

All the best

I pod touch

ipods are only designed for itunes so windows shouldn't recognise media player, any way, the new software for ipod touches is greater, meaning your computer/windows media player wont recognise it, only itunes will.
