I cannot transfer mpeg4 files. when i tried it says invalid format. how can i use a new 4gb sd card for it?

This may just mean that your mp3 or cell phone watever it is cannot play this format. However if this is a ipod then it should be able to play. Try downloading AVS audio converter pro. Its free. But make sure you have a codec for it to prevent a funny voice in some parts of the song. Change the format to mp3,WMA,WAV,aac or aiff formats. If this continues then this is a software problem. Hope i helped.

My ipod does not accept song

It's probably the wrong format,
"To convert a song's file format:
  1. Open iTunes Preferences.
    Windows: Choose Edit > Preferences.
    Mac: Choose iTunes > Preferences.
  2. Click the General button, then click the Importing Settings button in the second section of the window.
  3. From the Import Using pop-up menu, choose the encoding format(Choose AAC) that you want to convert the song to, then click OK to save the settings.
  4. Select one or more songs in your library, then from the Advanced menu, choose one of the following (The menu item changes to show what's selected in your Importing preferences):

    • Create MP3 version
    • Create AAC version(Choose this one)
    • Create AIFF version
    • Create WAV version
    • Create Apple Lossless version"
    Once this is done re-sync your iPod and you should be fine!
    Hope this helps!

I have WMA files on my iPOD 4gb black but I can't play them on iPOD earphone but can on computer.?.

The WMA files will not play on your Ipod because I pods only play the AAC format for songs.
The songs you have has to be converted to AAC files to play on your Ipod...
You will also need to have I Tunes on your computer to download the songs to your I pod once you have converted your songs to the AAC format.
I believe I Tunes will convert the songs to AAC format for you, but just in case it does not:
You can get a free song/video converter from the following website:

Good Luck,
I hope this helps

Have downloaded limewire to itunes library ipod is

You are going to want to add those files to your itunes library... The easiest way is to close out your limewire program... Make sure it is closed becuase it usaully starts up when the computer is on. In the tool bar you want to right click on the limewire icon and select exit. If you dont close the program some of the files are still being shared on the network. Now you will need to locate where the files were saved on your computer. They are usually located under My Documents and there should be a limewire folder. If this is the case then problem solved. Go to your I tunes and choose add file or folder to library ... a browser will open up go to my documents find the limewire folder and add it ...(you do this by clicking on it) then press the add button... this will pull your music into your itunes library. Be aware that some of the files you may have downloaded will be in different formats that itunes should convert. From here you can convert these to AAC format or leave them as Mp3. The AAC format is what apple uses as its format. If you convert them to AAC they will stay in your library no matter what you do with the original files. Before converting you might want to change your settings ... go to edit... prefrences...under general there is an import tab click on this and you can control the qaulity of the file... Choose the highest quality 320kbs... it will give you a larger file but the file will be cleaner. hope this helps

My 120 GB I pod classic Doesn't play the next song

Hi. Check that when you plug your iPod in that it isn't selected to "Shuffle," play which can happen if you are expecting to go through songs. There is also another reason and one I didnt know about until I took my iPod Classic back to my retailer thinking there was a problem;
If the songs on your iTunes or default device isn't an AAC file the iPod will fail to play it. On MAC systems simply click the file that you want to put onto your iPod, right click and scroll to "Get Info." If the file doesn't say it is an AAC file it won't play on your iPod. Scroll further down on the list to "Create AAC version." This takes milliseconds, doesn't affect the sound quality but condenses the data fit for the iPod Classic. Once that's done you can add any song you like.
Generally when you put a CD into a MAC it will automatically change the AIFF files into AAC which means you don't need to manually convert. AAC is usually needed when individual tracks are called up and put onto your iPod. I hope this helps you - it drove me nuts until I found out about the AAC.

Barbie mp3 player

This works with Barbie MP3 player model BAR901:
If the songs are iTunes Store format (copy protected AAC) you can burn them to a CD (preferably a CD-RW, which you can reuse over and over) which in effect converts then songs to AIFF format with no copy protection, then import them as MP3s back into iTunes (Advanced > Create MP3 Version). (Note: Be sure iTunes > Preferences > General > Import Settings... > MP3 encoder is selected, or you will get Create AAC Version in the menu). Make sure View > View Options... > Kind is selected so you can sort the songs by the kind info column (that is, MP3 not AAC). Then drag your new MP3s out of the window into the main level folder of the Barbie MP3 player. Erase the MP3s from iTunes if you don't need them, since you already have AAC versions. Phew, not easy.
If you have a physical CD rather than iTunes store purchase, it's way easier; just import the tunes as MP3 (Advanced > Create MP3 Version, see above) and drag them into the Barbie player's root folder. The songs play then on the MP3 player. ;-)

2 problems: recorded music breaking up/how to delete one track?

Hi! Some tracks are breaking up because they are not in mp3 or aac format(Only audio formats supported by ipod). While some tracks are converted by itunes others can't so, downloading a wma to mp3 or aac converter will surely help. You have to first change the format of the songs(from CD) by converting them into mp3 (or aac) format. Then sync these songs into ipod. Deleting any track from itunes library will automatically delete that track from the ipod. You can download that converter from the link-

I recently bought an ipod nano and it says there is 3.16 gb of other on my memory is there a way to free up that space so i can download my purchased songs to my ipod

what is the capacity of the player? also did you already load up some content onto your ipod yet? if you want to save more space, check to see what file types are on your player. for music on an ipod, i believe it only plays mp3 or aac. if you want to save space, convert any mp3 files to aac format. you can find that option under "advanced" and then click on "convert selection to aac". forgot to mention to highlight all of the songs that you want to convert in your library. a nice little short cut if you want to convert all of them is Ctrl+A. hope that helps!

Hey ttaylor7,

As long as the files you download through Linewire are in a format supported by iTunes, you may be able to play them on your iPod. The major exceptions to this however, are if the files you download are copy-protected or contain a digital rights management (DRM) identification tag. If the files you download are copy-protected and/or contain a DRM tag, you may only be able to play those songs using the media player software recommended or provided by Linewire itself.

I would strongly suggest contacting Linewire technical support before attempting any kind of file transfer, as Linewire would have the most accurate information regarding whether or not the files they provide have either of these protections.

Additionally, remember that iTunes is only able to support certain file types. Those file types are MP3, MP3 VBR, AAC, Protected AAC, Audible 2/3/4, Apple Lossless and AIFF audio formats; JPEG, BMP, GIF, TIFF, PSD (Mac only), and PNG image formats; H.264 and MPEG-4 video formats.

Hope this helps you out.

Go Ahead. Use Us.
