Syncronising ipod with another library

How can i protect the songs n photos in my ipod when i need to sync it with another library

Posted by on

  • Anonymous Jan 30, 2008

    My Ipod was synchronized with another desktop the first time we copied songs and photos on it.

    I installed iTunes on another machine and tried copying the photos from the Ipod, but I was not able to do so.

    All the photos present in the Ipod were clubbed into a big single file with extension ".ithmb". I copied those files to another directory for backup and tried everything, but was not able to extract those photos from the Ipod.

    Now, since the Ipod was synchronised all the data in it earlier is lost and I only have those back up ".ithmb" files. Can anyone help me in decoding this file to extract my photos from there?

Once you connect your ipod to the computer and itunes starts, you will see your ipod show up on the left side of the screen. Click on the name of your ipod on the left side of the screen and it will show information about your ipod on the main part of the itunes screen. Click in the checkbox near the bottom of the page next to "manually manage music". Now it will not try to automatically sync with the new computer and you can just drag over whatever songs you want.

Load music on my ipod

Connect your iPod to your computer with the USB cable that came with your iPod. The iPod screen should say "Do not disconnect".

Your iPod should appear under Devices in the bar to the left.

Decide whether you want to sync your iPod with your iTunes library or manually put songs on your iPod.(nano only)

Syncing your iPod will automatically add all of the songs in your library to your iPod. It will also delete any songs from your iPod that are not in your library. Click on your iPod icon and select Sync in the lower right corner.

If you do not want all the songs in your library on your iPod, make a playlist of all the songs you do want, or decide which playlists you want to include on your iPod.

Click on your iPod icon
On the top bar, click on the button which says "Music"

Make sure the box that says "Sync Music" is checked, then check the box for whether you want your iPod to sync with the entire library or selected playlists. If you click selected playlists, select the playlists you want in the playlists category. For newer iPods you can check which artists are included on your iPod to automatically import all the songs from each selected artist onto your iPod

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

How can i download songs to my ipod?

First you need to install Itunes on your pc. Then plug your Ipod into your pc. The pc should recognize it and you can name your product (ex. MY IPOD, or whatever you want to call your device). If you have acquired a used ipod from someone then it will ask you to erase and sync. You can only have your ipod synced to one library. You then need to load your itunes with the music you want on your player. This is fairly straight forward process. You can either load files onto it or insert a cd in and rip the music to your itunes. Once you have the music in your library plug your ipod in the library will recognize it and sync the entire library to your player or you can make playlists to sync certain songs to it.... hope this helps

Ipod classic won't sync with all songs / artists in my library

Have you tried right-clicking on one of the songs and choosing Get Info? I had some songs like that too and had to fill out the artist. After that it remembered the information even if I removed the song from my library and re-added it later.

ITunes to IPod

It sounds like you have your IPOD set to automatically sync to your itunes library instead of being set to manually select the songs. If you have it set to automatically sync then anytime you plug your ipod in with itunes open then only the songs that are in your Itunes library will be on your IPOD after you disconnect it from the computer. If you would have set it to manually sync then you would have had to choose which songs to put on your IPOD and also which to take off. If you had it set to automatically sync then I am sorry to inform you, but your songs are gone from your IPOD (and if you have it set to delete the song from the computer as well as the library then the song is gone from your laptop too)

How to reset an ipod nano

Your iPod syncs the songs in your iTunes library every time you plug it into your computer, adding/removing songs is only a matter of adding/deleting them from your library and re-syncing your iPod.
