    Thanks for your suggestion. I might have forgotten to mention that, I am a 60 year old
    with fairly limited computer savy.

    I think that I had saved the music folder(?)

Well you can try downloading from itunes to your computer and the from there copy and paste the files to your ipod. If that dont work then you might need to format it(the ipod)..

But as otacon suggested ensure that you are using the latest version of itunes..

It could be that the file system on the ipod is messed up like mine was, the only way to fix it is formatting it. You can do it from windows xp by right clicking on the removable disc(the one for your ipod) and format it of your ipod has a function to format itself.

    Did you reset it like this?



    Reset
    To reset your iPod nano:



    • 1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
    • 2. Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 10 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.

  • Damen Wong
    Damen Wong Jan 06, 2008

    I would advise you to update your iTunes to the latest version.

  • Damen Wong
    Damen Wong Jan 06, 2008

    After you update the iTunes, also update your Nano's firmware as well.

  • Damen Wong
    Damen Wong Jan 06, 2008

    Firmware is the software running on your Nano. You update it via the iTunes software.

  • Damen Wong
    Damen Wong Jan 06, 2008

    You can update iTunes by selecting check for updates under the help menu.

  • Damen Wong
    Damen Wong Jan 06, 2008

    It all depends on your internet download speed. The iTunes setup is a relatively large file so if you have a slow connection it may take a bit of time.

  • Damen Wong
    Damen Wong Jan 06, 2008

    If you would like to download the whole setup of the latest iTunes, here is the link.

    Damen Wong Jan 06, 2008

    Ok...so you have the latest iTunes and the latest firmware for the Nano and still no music can be transfered. What happens when you try to sync your Nano with iTunes. I assume that iTunes recognizes and connects to the Nano...is this correct?

How Do I Download Songs Onto My iPod Nano?
IPod Nanos are portable multimedia players that allow you to playback songs and other content (e.g. video) no matter where you go. They come in a variety of memory sizes such as 4GB or 16GB (gigabytes) and work with iTunes to upload songs. ITunes is the iPod default management program which allows you to upload songs to its library, create playlists and sync music on your iPod quickly and easily. This simple process will have you jamming to your favorite songs in no time.


Downloading to an iPod Nano1Connect your iPod Nano to the computer using the USB cable. Launch iTunes if does not automatically launch. When you launch iTunes, it will display your iPod Nano on the left panel.
2Add music to your iTunes library. Click the "File" button on the top menu and click "Add to Library." Locate the song you want to upload to your player and click "Open" to load it to your program.
3Click the "+" button on the lower left panel to create a playlist. Type a name for the playlist and drag the uploaded file to it. To upload additional songs, repeat Step 2 and drag the uploaded additional songs to the created playlist.
4Drag the songs in the playlist up or down to select the order in which the songs will play.
5Sync your iPod Nano. Click the iPod icon on the left panel after importing songs and adding them to the created playlist. Click the "Music" tab and click "Sync music." Click "Select playlists, artists and genres" and select the playlist you created that contains the songs you want to upload. Click "Apply" to automatically sync and download the songs to your iPod Nano.
6Click the "Eject" button and disconnect your iPod from the computer.

How to download music on a iphone 3g?


there are several ways you can download and put music on your iPhone 3G

1.-Purchase songs in iTunes directly on your iPhone (this will cost you money and require you to create an iTunes account,if you download apps, you already have one).

2.-Insert a CD into the computer you plug your iPhone to, open the CD with iTunes, and rip the contents of the disc into iTunes (iTunes has a tutorial for this if you need further information), sync your phone with your iTunes on the computer and the songs will be added to your song library in your phone.

3.-You can use a P2P (peer to peer) sharing program ex. Frostwire, Winamp, eMule, to download the songs onto your computer. Take note of what folder these downloaded songs are being sent to. In iTunes, select File>add folder to library, a window will open, select the file where the downloaded music is located, and iTunes will add it into the music library in iTunes. Sync your phone with iTunes and the downloaded songs will be added to the music library on your phone

Trying to down load song from my lap top when synk it wounts to remove all song to in stall 12 songs?


I think you are trying to sync with a different library than your own original library that you synced your ipod before. OR the original songs that are in your ipod are no longer in your library. There is a option that you could sync songs manually.
1. Connect your iPod 2. Start iTunes 3. Click on your iPod 4. Check option that says Manually sync songs
Now you can sync your music without deleting the old songs. I hope

I have a new I mac computer I tunes is all ready loaded but how do I download my music library to this computer ?? Thanks Bill


Depending on the size of the existing library, you can do it manually by downloading all of those files to your iMac over a network (this may take some time, depending on how much music you have) Then:
1. Launch iTunes
2. Select the iTunes drop down menu at the top of the screen
3. Select "Preferences".
4. Select "Advanced" to the far right of the window
The first input field allows you to specify the folder that iTunes uses for your music. Change this to match the location of your newly transferred music.
5. Uncheck the box that reads "Copy files to itunes Media folder when adding to library"
6. Select "OK" in the bottom right corner of this window.
7. Press command (apple) and "O", iTunes will open a window allowing you to add songs to your library. Select the folder where you have just located all of your music, then select "Open" in the bottom right corner of the window. It is not necessary to individually select each song, just the main file.
ITunes will now import your music into its library. This may take a few minutes, depending on the amount of music.

How do you download songs from computer's music files? I copied and pasted from my library,they appear on the player when connected t computer but are not there when disconnected?


Hello,

Transfers onto he MP815 can be done through exploring 'My Computer':
Music files must be copied into the Media folder of the player.
In this mode, the player shows as a removable disk in the computer folders.
Before disconnecting the player, always go through the safely remove hardware icon in the right corner below on the computer's screen.

When you're using a software program (e.g. Coby Media Manager or Windows Media Player) for transfers, use the help function in the software.
For Windows Media Player 11:
0. The player should be detected when you connect the USB cable.
1. Setup a library in WMP 11 [ Add to Library ], so the player knows the location of your music files.
2. Create playlist: put songs in a list
3. Sync the list onto the player
4. Wait until synchronizing has finished
Do not disconnect while sync is busy: a message appears when you're allowed to disconnect.

NOT ABLE TO ADD SONGS IN MUSIC PLAYER FOLDER


In order to add music to your mobile you have to do it through your mobile itself. You can copy any number of songs to your memory card according to the memory available. Then start your media player in your phone go to options and select update media library. Your media library will automatically search for music media and add it to your playlist.

Problem with song descriptions after moving from ipod to library


Are the songs listed as the 4 digit description in itunes? Or in the music folder? If its just the music folder don't worry, the music should look just like it does on your ipod when loaded into itunes. If they are in itunes already and still look funny hit me up for sure. I use my ipod to transfer music often

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!
