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

How can i erase songs from my ipod

1. Connect your iPod to the computer. You cannot delete files from the iPod directly, and must use the iTunes interface to add and remove content from the iPod. Connect the device to the computer by plugging the long end of the sync cable (which came bundled with your iPod) into the data port of the iPod and then plugging the USB side into your computer.
2. Launch iTunes. Once you have plugged in your iPod, launch the iTunes program. You may need to wait a few moments while the program locates your iPod. You will know that your iPod has been located because a small icon that looks like your iPod will pop up on the left side of the iTunes program.
3. Click on your iPod to show the Device menu and then scroll over to the center pane where the music is. Find the song(s) you wish to delete. Left-click on the song (or album) you want to delete and then right-click.
4. Select "Remove" from the submenu. A message will pop up asking if you only want to remove it from the iPod or whether you want to remove it from the iPod and iTunes. If you want to keep a copy of the file(s) on your computer, select the option that removes the file only from your iPod. Once the file has been removed, go back to the iPod menu and select "Sync" from the center pane. This will remove the song from your iPod.

How To Add songs on ipod?

You need to use iTunes, download it here: Now if you bought your iPod used you won't have to go through the iPod set up, but if you did buy new then you will have to. After you've done all this, you need to add all your songs to your iTunes library, you can burn your CDs to it or buy them off the iTunes store. Then plug your iPod into your computer and select it in the iTunes sidebar, now if you want to manually put your songs onto your iPod, then scroll all the way down and check the box that says "Manually manage Music and Videos" if you want iTunes to automatically put all your songs onto your ipod then just click "Sync."

Hope this helps!

I plugged my ipod 3rd generation 20 gb into my mac to delete some songs so I could add new ones...the screen came up in iTunes and it said it was disconnected improperly even though it was still hooked...

I would force the iPod into disc mode before attempting to connect the iPod to restore it. Below is a step by step on forcing an iPod into disc mode just in case you need the information :)

Putting ipod into disc mode Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Set it to Hold, then turn it off again.) Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for at least 6 seconds until the Apple logo appears. When the Apple logo appears, release the Menu and Select buttons and immediately press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until the Disk Mode screen appears.
Connect the iPod to your computer; the screen on the iPod will change and say "Do not disconnect" If you are having difficulty putting the iPod model into disk mode, set it on a flat surface. Make sure that the finger pressing the Select button is not touching the Click Wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Play/Pause button toward the outside of the Click Wheel and not near the center.
If you are still unable to put your iPod with a Click Wheel into Disk Mode, use one finger from one hand to press the Select button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Play/Pause button.

Ipod Classic 80GB won't sync

i took my ipod to the apple store, they ran diagnostics, and it passed everything. i thaught it was a spot on the hard drive, becsue in the process in syncing it stopped at the same number each time (i.e 81 of 334) and freeze. i recently downloaded a song from a website, when i put it on my ipod when it still worked, it would freexze my ipod each time i tried to play it. it was just that one song. then i synced again, things were fine with it for a whle until i sunced it a month later. Apple told me there was a bad song pon there and i instanty knew it was that one and i deleted it. ever since, my ipod is fine.
to find the bad songs, Apple told me to make playlists of my library, in like quarters, sync one at a time if for example the 3rd playlist has problems going on, the song is on there. and just narrow it down. i deleted each song that froze in syncing like 81 of 334.. i would delete #81. (it gives the title you know that) i ended up just having to delete 1 podcast episode and one song, and things are fine.
if you have this problem, plug your ipod up to itunes, on itunes go under the menu , under help> diagnostics. (second to last one) and run it on connection, or anyting you want.. to make sure it isn't on the connection. if not, you have a bad song. also KEEP YOUR SOFTWARE UP TO DATE!!@

Firstly, you have to download from the internet the latest version of iTunes. Then you open the itunes programme and plug your ipod on the pc.

Press the "files" option on the left top of window and then "sync ipod" below!

Hope i helped you!
Looking forward to hearing from you providing further assistance!

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)

Go Gear 2gb

First of all you need to restore the player.
Install and run the Philips Device Manager from the product CD.
Select the Repair/Restore option and follow the on-screen prompts. This will format the player and re-load the firmware.

The HDD1830 is only fully compatible with Windows XP and Windows Media Player 10. If you have Windows Media Player 11 you will need to uninstall it. This will roll it back to version 10.

Tracks must be transferred to the HDD1830 using the Media Player Sync function.

The HDD1830 is only compatible with .MP3 or .WMA music tracks. It is not compatible with iPod .AAC tracks.
