Re: My ipod won't turn off

First make sure your hold switch isn't on. It's on the top or bottom and slides back and forth. It needs to be switched to the left. Once it is to the left, here's how you reset:

You can reset your ipod by holding down the menu and select (round button in the center) buttons down for at least 10 seconds. You'll see an apple logo flash, that's when you stop pressing the buttons. It will shut off, then back on.

I have apple ipod 4GB Model MA426 send the songs computer to ipod

Hi there and welcome at Fixya, the support team (lfete)

I mean your iPod you can just insert it in the computer with the cable and the computer will install the driver :O) then you can see the storage in the Folder "My Computer". Open the drive and simply copy and paste the songs you want to have on it, you find the copy and paste function if you highlight a song and then right click on the mouse. Remember this !! you can copy more songs in once by holding the control (Ctrl) button down when selecting the songs with the mouse OR you can copy several songs after eachother by highlight the first song and then press "Shift" and highlight the last song.

you can also use iTunes to transfer your music :

you can find the manual to your iPod here:


For reading the manual you need a PDF-Reader and you can get one for free here :




Hope it helps
IF NOT then try to return here

Have a nice time over there

Please rate my answer :O)

I can't put song from my computer to my ipod and when i connect it to my computer the icon of songs doesn't appear only device and accessories

  1. Double-click on the "iTunes" icon to open the program and then transfer all of your music filesinto iTunes. To add music from CDs, simply load a CD into yourcomputer's drive, wait for iTunes to see the playlist and then click"Import." To add music from another program, go to the "File" menu andselect "Add to Library." You will then be able to click on any musicfiles you would like to transfer.
  2. Plug your iPod into a USB port on your computer and wait for iTunes toautomatically recognize the device. You will be asked to name andregister your iPod, after which you can click "Finish" and begin toload music.
  3. Click on "Library," found in the left hand column to reveal all of themusic you have transfered to iTunes. To load songs onto your iPod,highlight one or more songs and then drag them to your iPod. Your iPodwill be found in the same column where you found the library, under thename you chose earlier. As soon as you drop the files into your iPod,they will quickly copy.
  4. Eject your iPod once you have loaded all of the music you'd like byclicking on the arrow next to your iPod's name. When the namedisappears, you can remove the USB cable and begin enjoying your portable music.
Here is where you can get ITUNES:

How do you delete songs from your Apple iPod 4 GB Silver?

You can set your iTunes to "manually manage music and video", then plug in your iPod to iTunes, and delete the songs from your iPod with iTunes.
Or you may try this ipod tool, it can help you delete iPod music easily, Much better than iTunes
Hope it helps.

Disk empty & the file cannot be created

well the first question i would ask is how you are transfering music and video to the ipod. The reason i ask is because it sounds like you are not using itunes. itunes is the only way to actually put content on any ipod. with all that said when using itunes connect the ipod witht he provided cable and push the restore button on the summary screen for the ipod which should appear in itunes when you plug in the ipod to the computer you are using. after it restores you can try adding music and a video and see what happens

The firewire and the USB cable are the same thing on the ipod. Are you using a mac or a pc? You want to use the Firewire for the mac and the USB for the PC. try flipping over the cable. you should see the universal image for the USB. Then plug that in.

you might just have the firewire cable, and in that case, you will need to go out and purchase the USB cable, or borrow if from someone else with an ipod.
