I am having problems downloading music from Itunes, I can go thru the steps and it appears to work but I cannot pull music up on player.

You might be downloading the wrong format. Many mp3 players will only play mp3s and won't play the format for the ipods.

I will try and make this as short as possible and hope you understand what I am asking. I just got an Ipod Classic last month and signed up with Itunes and then downloaded about 1300 songs from my cd...

You can't "backwards sync" (put music from your iPod back onto your computer) through iTunes. When you went to sync after you got your fixed computer back, I'm assuming iTunes tried to copy what was in iTunes (nothing) to your iPod, which probably is what caused these problems.

Assuming you still have the music on your iPod, I would recommend transferring the music from your iPod back to your computer (to a folder other than iTunes), restoring your iPod to factory settings, then moving all of the music files into iTunes and re-syncing your iPod.

There are two programs that are available to transfer songs from your iPod back onto your computer. The first is iDump and the second is YamiPod. I have found that iDump is the better of the two.
The link for iDump is:

Hope this helps!

Cant get music on

a lot of the ipod's are a pain because they only want you to use their downloads and their music. If you are just trying to transfer music from your music on your computer to the ipod it won't except it. The music will show it transfered to the ipod but won't show up on it because apple with all of their ipods use a different format for their songs which only the ipod can read. I have tried every way around this and you just have to breakdown and go through itunes. You can take all your music you have on your computer now and put it on itunes then load it on your ipod and it will transfer fine. Good news is that itunes is free, lol.

Computer says songs are there iPod says there not

your ipod will not function properly with windows media player. it may play the music but it won;t get functionality from the ipod.
You have to use iTunes to get your ipod straightened out. Once you mount it on iTunes you will see the music and be able to add music and delete music.

your ipod won;t play videos.
but to put files on it, mount it to itunes and when the iPod mounts you will see the picture of the nano.
in that window click on manage music manually.
now click on the music folder and it will open.
in windows explorer open the file folder containing your music files.
click on a song and drag n drop it into the left most column of the music listing window in itunes.
it will load into you ipod.
One thing you will have to remember, Ipods will not load incompatable music or other files.
make sure your music is compatable.

Mp3 won''t work

I've never heard of audio CD being block before from playback. Try this:

Reset your Ipod back to factory settings.

Drag and drop your songs from Itunes into your player. Do not use playlists.

Playback the songs from Itunes using the Ipod player as the file location. If playback is working, undock you Ipod from the computer and play again using the MP3 player.

Did you place the music on your iPod via iTunes, or just drag and drop to the device?

The music must be added through iTunes, or the iPod will just act as an external hard drive--storing your music, but you can't play it.

If you just dragged and dropped, take it off your iPod, start up iTunes, then add the music that way.
