I have WMA files on my iPOD 4gb black but I can't play them on iPOD earphone but can on computer.?.

The WMA files will not play on your Ipod because I pods only play the AAC format for songs.
The songs you have has to be converted to AAC files to play on your Ipod...
You will also need to have I Tunes on your computer to download the songs to your I pod once you have converted your songs to the AAC format.
I believe I Tunes will convert the songs to AAC format for you, but just in case it does not:
You can get a free song/video converter from the following website:

Good Luck,
I hope this helps

My i pod video plays then dosent

Check that the songs you have uploaded onto your IPod are AAC files. Otherwise the iPod will not play them. Also clean the wheel if its grubby or in a case as sometimes this will not allow songs to be played.

Stuck i pod

Just to be sure, did you use iTunes to load the songs into your iPod?

Also, are the other songs the right format for the iPod, MP3 or AAC, etc?

Are the songs in your iTunes library?

Did you move your music to a different place on your computer so that iTunes can't find it? You will know if that is true because all of the music except for Garth Brooks will have an icon by it.

Does your music play when you click on it in your music library? If it does, then it is not properly loaded into your iPod

Maybe the other music is corrupted and needs to be replaced.

You can reload all of the music back into the iPod to see if that works. Hope that helps.

Check the fomat of the song you are trying to play.

And try playing them using the player compatible file formats.

Doesnt play song i click on, is it a virus?

Make sure the songs are in the right format, have transfer rights, and make sure your music subscription service is current. Or else, you will get "0:00" for all tracks.

Won't play songs

the codec used to create your Mp3s etc... may not be compatible with your Ipod.. your Ipod will automatically Skip any songs it cannot play (encoded with incorrect codec).

Try using a MP3 editor to re-encode the troublesome songs
