80 gig ipod won't play music?

I loaded 5 gigs worth of songs to my ipod using my itunes. When trying to play on the ipod nothing plays it shows the artist and the songs, it says 0:00      -3:35 hit play and nothing happens. I even frwd the music and hit play and still nothing. Hook it up to my mac on Itunes and it plays. I have all the recent updates. What wrong? Yes I also reset and restored the Ipod twice? Help?

    Just after syncing my 80gig iPod -- with the latest software update as of 9/18/08 -- nothing plays on the iPod. Same scenario as described in the first post.

    My 80gig 5th gen has exactly the same problem after the latest firmware too.

My ipod 120GB can only load 20% of my 1000songs befor freezing I did all that iTunes Trouble shooter said but to no avail. is their a way to fix this without sending it in or should i **** can my po


It will probably take an hour or two to sync 20 gigs of music.

I am sure your 4,178 songs are somewhere around 20 gig.


It takes roughly 6 - 8 hours to put 80 gig on.

Imagine how long it took to put my 130 gigs on.



Word of advice, make sure you turn the settings to manually manage music.

You don't want to lose all your music cause you hook it up to another computer and it syncs with its itunes.


installing more computer ram might be an option

If you're not sure if a module is right for your system, use the Crucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules.


first you will need to select the manufacturer from a drop down list then select your product line from a drop down list then select the model then click find it will take you directly to compatible ram also you will have an option to scan your system


you should always ask for a guarantee on the compatibility before making any purchase and try to buy for working pairs if possible


also check the usb leads for secure dust free connections


if you scroll to the bottom toolbar while syncing your ipod select task manager application to see whats running if you see something running that should not be running select end now also in the applications see whats ticking over


you might have a virus


To disable automatic updating:

1. Connect iPod to your computer
2. Open iTunes.
3. Select iPod in the iTunes source list, you know in that left column where your playlists and ipod are located.
4. right click on your ipod and select the Options button.
5. Select "Manually manage songs and playlists."


No more long updating each time you connect your ipod.
(Although you might have to wait one more time to do this step but im sure you can do it intermittedly while its updating)


to re enable

1 - Select the iPod in iTunes.
2 - Tick Manually manage music and videos.
3 - Select the Music under Library at the top left of iTunes.
4 - Reselect the iPod and uncheck Manually manage music.
Also, uncheck Enable disk use.

Also remember in the Manange you own tracks mode you need to disconnect your ipod by clicking on the "eject ipod" icon in the bottom right or next to your ipod icon.


The ipod will continue to flash "do not disconnect" if you don't click the eject icon.

Not that my way is hard but there might be a quicker and easier way to load tracks in your ipod when its switched to the manange your own tracks mode.

If there is I would like to know


hope this helps

IPod MA146LL/A no sound


The license on the songs may be expired - i would check on that first.

If not, do the 5 R's suggested in the User's manual - go to Apple's website if you have lost the manual.

My mp3 player sometimes skips certain songs to go on to the next which usually plays. I deleted everything from the music folder and tried again and noticed it never plays those songs but only the ones...


I have noticed this happening to my 30 Gig Ipod with some of my music. What I did to fix my problem was replaced the Battery and Restored\Reset and problem went away.
