Question about MP3 & Digital Media Players
For some reason, when I open Itunes, and click on my device, the summary page has "Open iTunes when this iPod is connected" and "Manually manage music and videos" checked. But then when I go to the Music tab, it won't let me only select certain folders to sync! (All Songs and Playlists is grayed out and checked but Selected Playlists is grayed out and NOT checked)
When I click on "Sync Music", it will say that all contents on my ipod will be erased and synced with the items in the Library. Any idea on how to fix this?
Hi Try this to fix the problem: (its from the Itunes help menu)
To add songs to iPod manually: Connect your iPod to your computer.
When the iPod icon appears in the iTunes window (under Devices), select it.
If the Summary pane is not showing, click the Summary tab.
Select "Manually manage music." (If you have an iPod that displays video, the checkbox says "Manually manage music and video.")
Click Music (below Library, on the left side of the iTunes window) and then drag songs and playlists to your iPod.

Hi everyone - well, after reading that everyone has the same problem, I decided to call Apple directly and get the solution; it's so simple that even I can do it and it works!!!
All you have to do to sync the music manually is make sure that in the summary tab you have the "manually sync music" box checked and click on apply. Then, all you have to do is go to the left-hand side and click on music. Once that comes up and you see your music, just drag it to your device and it will sync. So you know, when the album artwork disappears, you have to put it back in and then drag the music - otherwise, the music will just go into your songs directory.

Its kind of easy=] U just go to Music Section & you will see all you downloaded albums and stuff. Click each album o song and drag to the section " Devices" under that you ll see a ITouch Symbol. Drag the Album or song to that symbol. Then Your ITouch will say "Sync in Progess" So that means you ae doing it right! :D =]

Had this problem with my mom's iPod Touch. Be sure on the main screen you have manually sync music checked!

Connect the iPod to any one of the computer's USB ports via an Apple USB cable.
Open iTunes on the computer.
Click the name of the connected iPod, which is located underneath the "Devices" menu in the left iTunes column.
Click the "Summary" tab that is found at the top of iTunes.
Click inside of the "Manually manage music and videos" box positioned in the middle of iTunes.
Click the "Apply" button that's positioned near the bottom of iTunes. You will now be able to safely connect the iPod to any iTunes.
hope this helps
