My computer crashed. I had not backed up my IPOD NANO playlists. ITUNES was gracious enough to reload all my PURCHASED tunes back onto my fixed computer, BUT, how do I get all the other songs, burned from my old CDs and imported onto my previous itunes library, back from my nano onto my computer somehow?? I keep hitting dead ends when asking how to do this? I can't sync my IPOD anymore, it will erase all the missing cd songs I put on it...and all those old CDs of mine are gone now..! HELP!

Are all your music files gone from your computer too? Or are they just not being "found"?

If all your files are still on your computer (look in My Music - or do a computer search for .mp3 file extentions) then you might have to manually reload them into your iTunes. (ie: double click each song or click and drag to itunes.)

If all your files are gone from the computer too - (did you have to completely reload your O/S?) - then you might be out of luck.

In the future, try burning your mp3 files everyso often onto a DATA disk (in DATA format because it will hold more). You won't be able to play it as an audio, but you will have them to reload onto your computer following a crash. I learned this the hard way - I lost 4G worth of music after a computer crash that resulted in an entire system reload. It was EXTREMELY traumatic!!!

Hope this helps.

Transfer playlist from Itunes to Ipod Nano


Open iTunes and plug in your iPod. On the left sidebar there should be your iPod name (If you can't find the sidebar, go to iTunes menu bar, under View, select Show Sidebar), go to your iTunes playlist and drag the songs you want to your iPod. For all of the songs, go to your iPod music library, even if you don't have songs, and on the bottom there should be a blue-ish bar. There might be a box saying "Autofill from iTunes library" click that ONLY if you want ALL songs from your iTunes to your iPod.
If you want to know how to put video or DVD movie onto iPod, I think this step by step guide would help you.

How do I transfer a playlist from I-Tunes to my I-pod?


Connect your iPod to computer, iTunes will detect the iPod automatically, then click iTunes menu "File -> Sync iPod", the songs will be transferred from iTunes to iPod.
Or You may try this ipod transfer, it's an iTunes alternative that can help you manage iPod files including delete, upload, play, copy, etc. It's much easier to use than iTunes. It can also help you manage multiple iPods on one computer or manage iPod on multiple computers, even copy music and video from iPod back to computer or iTunes. So you will not lose your iPod files even though you switch to a new iTunes library. My friends recommend it to me, it works pretty well.

How Do I Download Songs Onto My iPod Nano?
IPod Nanos are portable multimedia players that allow you to playback songs and other content (e.g. video) no matter where you go. They come in a variety of memory sizes such as 4GB or 16GB (gigabytes) and work with iTunes to upload songs. ITunes is the iPod default management program which allows you to upload songs to its library, create playlists and sync music on your iPod quickly and easily. This simple process will have you jamming to your favorite songs in no time.


Downloading to an iPod Nano1Connect your iPod Nano to the computer using the USB cable. Launch iTunes if does not automatically launch. When you launch iTunes, it will display your iPod Nano on the left panel.
2Add music to your iTunes library. Click the "File" button on the top menu and click "Add to Library." Locate the song you want to upload to your player and click "Open" to load it to your program.
3Click the "+" button on the lower left panel to create a playlist. Type a name for the playlist and drag the uploaded file to it. To upload additional songs, repeat Step 2 and drag the uploaded additional songs to the created playlist.
4Drag the songs in the playlist up or down to select the order in which the songs will play.
5Sync your iPod Nano. Click the iPod icon on the left panel after importing songs and adding them to the created playlist. Click the "Music" tab and click "Sync music." Click "Select playlists, artists and genres" and select the playlist you created that contains the songs you want to upload. Click "Apply" to automatically sync and download the songs to your iPod Nano.
6Click the "Eject" button and disconnect your iPod from the computer.

Tips & Warnings
Click "Music Store" if you want to purchase a music file. Search for the song on the iTunes store and download it to the iTunes library.

Downloading music to Ipod from a computer that has a link to another ipod without erasing it. can i use 2 ipods on the same computer.


Easily, you will have to go into the itunes settings and configure it to manually transfer/sync songs and playlists. After that you can move files from your computer directly onto your ipod via drag and drop or you can create a playlist and place the playlist on your ipod in itunes via drag and drop.

You will see a new "untitled playlist" Folder, on the right side bar in the iTunes window. Name that folder as you see fit.

Now take all of your music that you want to add to the new playlist, from the iTunes Library and drag all those songs into the playlist.

* From here, you will need make sure your iPod is connected to your computer and that the device is showing up in iTunes.

Once you see the iPod connected, go into its settings and select the Music tab, make sure to activate the Playlists and select that new playlist from the list of playlists you see.
(Make sure if you have other playlists in that list you want to add, be sure to check off those boxes too)

Music on apple 80 gig ipod


I honestly don't think you can. If the music isn't on your hard drive that is on your iPod then you WILL lose it if you sync it with the musicless iTunes. To my knowledge you have to re-download what's on your iPod (playlists and all) and if you add or subtract anything and sync that's what you'll have on your iPod.

IPod Nano 8GB, 4thGen - Video Problems


So it shows up on iTunes? Trying deleting it off of your iPod and then copy it back onto it. If you can't delete it just try to copy it over again.
iTunes might have changed what type of video it is, they might have made it a music video or a tv show and they are moved to different folders
