Don't plug your ipod into the computer cause the system is designed to stream data from computer to ipod.  Google a program called expod or senuti (itunes backwards.  Clever hunh?) and download and install the program.  These two free apps will allow you to reverse stream the data from your ipod back to the computer.
Cheers.

The file "iTunes Library.itl" cannot be read because it was created by a newer version of iTunes


Your library seems to have been converted to a newer version of iTunes. You need to upgrade your iTunes software.

Moving the iTunes Music Files to a Different Hard Disk/Folder

If you are low on disk space in your iTunes folder then you can move these music files to another hard drive and keep your music library in tact without the need to create your music library again.

If you want to transfer your iTunes to an external USB hard drive, make sure that it is powered up and connected to your computer before opening iTunes.
Opened iTunes, click Edit and then Preferences. Click the Advanced tab.
Make sure the Keep iTunes Media folder organized checkbox is checked, and click Change.

Then select the location where you would like to move your files to. Click Select the Hard Drive and Folder or OK once you’re done.

The files will not move into their new positions by themselves –To do this – click File, Library and Organize Library. Check Consolidate Files.

When this process has been completed, go to the new location of your iTunes media and check the music files to see if they have migrated across correctly. Also play one or more tunes to test the music files.

The redundant iTunes music files can now be deleted from the original iTune location (C:\Documents and Settings\…..…\My Documents\My Music\iTunes). Delete everything from iTunes there except files titled iTunes Library.itl and iTunes Music Library.xml. These are still needed.

How do I backup itunes file on external harddrive


It's a good idea to regularly back up all important files on your computer to an external source to prevent data loss. Your iTunes music, videos and other digital downloads are stored in separate files within the iTunes folder. However, if you consolidate them into a single folder, it's easier to back them up to an external hard drive.

Launch iTunes. Go to the program's Preferences menu. Click the "Advanced" tab. Check the box next to "Copy files to iTunes Media folder when adding to library" and click "OK." Click "File." Select "Library" and then "Organize Library." Check the box next to "Consolidate Files" and click "OK." Close iTunes. Connect your external hard drive to your computer. Find the iTunes media folder on your computer's hard drive. Drag the folder to the icon for your external drive to copy your iTunes media.

How do I recover lost data?


If the computer won't even turn on its most likely a non-hard drive issue, which is a GOOD thing. Your lost itunes data can be successfully recovered by following these steps:

--uninstall or remove the current hard drive (on the broken computer) ---buy an external casing that fits your type of hard drive (take old hard drive with you to store or write down the name and model number to insure you are picking the correct case).
--connect the old hard drive into the new external case
--connect external case to a working computer through a USB input.
--find and explore the old hard drive on new computer screen,
--locate itunes folder
--copy the entire itunes folder or choose which files you want from the old hard drive and paste in itunes folder on the working computer and you are done.

If you are not computer savvy, unsure about what a hard drive might even be or just don't feel like doing it yourself the above solution can be done by Staple's or have The Geek Squad have a go at it.

Good luck and hope this helps you !

I have a Coby MP620-8G mp3 player. For some reason, I've been getting a whole bunch (at least 15 albums) of my artists thrown into the Unknown Artist category, making it difficult to find songs. In my...


I just had this problem as well. Find one of the files that is showing up on the MP3 player as "Unknown Artist" in your iTunes library. Right click that song/file and click "Get Info". You'll most likely find that the song is an "ACC Audio File" which happens often when you copy CDs or download from the iTunes Store. Close the info window about the song and then you can select the entire album or individual songs from your iTunes playlist that are showing up as "Unknown Artist". Once all the songs that you need are selected, right click again and select "Create MP3 Version". This will create a duplicate, however, so you'll want to go back to the main library in iTunes (or stay there if you are already there) and then remove the original "ACC" versions. You can, if you'd like, keep them on your hard drive, but you really don't need them because MP3 is the standard. From here you can remove those files from the Coby MP3 player and replace them with the new MP3 versions you have created in iTunes.
I hope this helps!

Trying to drag all files from itunes into lacie 250 g design by porsche hard drive and it won't let me.


Thank you for asking your question with FixYa Support.

I am not sure what type of computer you have that your LaCie is connected to, but first and foremost, make sure the external hard drive has been properly formatted to work with the operating system your computer has.
For Windows computers: the LaCie should be formatted in either FAT32 or NTFS (recommended- more secure).
How to Format a HD in Windows Vista
For Mac computers: the LaCie should be formatted in Mac OS Extended (Journaled) format.
How to format an external hard drive in Mac OS X


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
If your LaCie is already formatted, then the best way to import your entire iTunes library from the internal hard drive of your computer into the LaCie, especially if you are unable to drag and drop the library into you LaCie, is to try a simple copy and pasting of the ENTIRE iTunes folder from its home on your computer to the LaCie hard drive.

You can also use the website I like to reference which provides some good alternatives to effectively migrating your iTunes Library from a PC or Mac to your external hard drive:

Here is that support link:
How to Transfer iTunes Library to another Computer
(also included in this article, are external hard drives)

For sake of space, I want you to review this article, because I not only agree with its content, it is exactly what I would explain to you as well in a more condensed, easy to follow fashion.

I hope I have helped guide you well on your question.

Transfered my itunes library from a G4 to transfer to a PC but files not showing up


library transfer only transfers the playlist index file. You need to transfer the actual media files through Finder to the external device (be it a hard drive or flash or a network connection) then update the iTunes library on the destination machine.
