Question about Apple iPod nano

Songs deleted, but empty space and song info. still remain

I am having a problem deleting the information that comes with the songs from my Ipod. My PC is old and will not suppport Windows XP, so I use the Winamp 5.53 media player to upload music to my Ipod and it works fine in most cases. I have succesfully deleted songs and albums from my Ipod a few times, but most of the time there is a snag. I delete the desired songs from my Winamp player and from my PC's music files, but for some reason the info. that comes with the songs when they are first loaded into the Ipod--song title, artists' name, album cover art, etc.--remain on the Ipod. The songs(by this I mean the music itself and the bytes the music occupied) are deleted, but there is still the song title(and other aforementioned info.) is still there along with an empty space. By empty space, I mean that when I play my Ipod in shuffle mode, or when I'm playing an album or playlist in which I have deleted unwanted songs, the Ipod will stop playing when it reaches the space where the deleted song used to be. So when the Ipod is playing a group of songs--let's say I'm shuffling my collection of Rolling Stones albums and the cycle reaches the spot where "Not Fade Away" was deleted, the song title appears along with the album art and the song length and the Ipod goes silent. I to push the skip to next track button (>>) to get it to continue playing the rest of the songs. The main reason i bought an Ipod was because I love to shuffle my music, so you can see why this is annoying. I have tried different methods of deletion such as deleting the artist, deleting the album, and even deleting a whole album one song at a time ,but the result is the same. As I mentioned, I have been able to successfully delete some material, both before and after the problem first occurred, but there was no difference in the deletion method either way. I didn't mean to write you a novel, but it is important that I be specific because I have gotten tech. advice about this before that did not address the exact problem I'm having. Pllease help, if you can.

My ipod holds 500 songs but I only have 320 but when I import a cd an error pops up and says my ipod wll not hold the songs


When they say that an ipod can hold "500" songs the don't actually know that it can it all depends on the format of the song, the version of firmware etc. my suggestion would be take of all your songs re-format them to mp3 or to something that takes up less space and then put them all back on and there you have it... please comment and rate for any help please pm me... lol

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

ITunes to IPod


It sounds like you have your IPOD set to automatically sync to your itunes library instead of being set to manually select the songs. If you have it set to automatically sync then anytime you plug your ipod in with itunes open then only the songs that are in your Itunes library will be on your IPOD after you disconnect it from the computer. If you would have set it to manually sync then you would have had to choose which songs to put on your IPOD and also which to take off. If you had it set to automatically sync then I am sorry to inform you, but your songs are gone from your IPOD (and if you have it set to delete the song from the computer as well as the library then the song is gone from your laptop too)
