Question about Audio Players & Recorders
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 DevicesiTouch will not manually sync to iTunes - step_3.gifit.
If thiTouch will not manually sync to iTunes - step_4.gifpane is not showing, click the Summary tab.
Select "Manually manage music." (IiTouch will not manually sync to iTunes - step_5.gif 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 =]

If you've set up automatic syncing, iTunes syncs your device by default whenever you connect your iPod, iPhone, or iPad to your computer. If you don't want iTunes to sync your device without being prompted, you can change this setting.
You can prevent unprompted syncing for any specific iPod, iPhone, or iPad; or for all iPod, iPhone, or iPad devices you connect to your computer.
Connect your iPod, iPhone, or iPad to your computer.
In iTunes, select your device (below Devices).
Click Summary, and then deselect "Open iTunes when this Device is connected."
In iTunes, choose Edit > Preferences.
Select "Prevent iPods, iPhones, and iPads from syncing automatically."
If this checkbox is selected, any connected iPod, iPhone, or iPad won't sync without being prompted.
To sync your iPod, iPhone, or iPad when unprompted syncing is disabled, connect your iPod, iPhone, or iPad to your computer, and then choose File > Sync "Device Name" in iTunes, or click your device (below Devices) and then click Sync.
For more information, see the iPod, iPhone, or iPad User Guide or the Apple Support website.
