It sounds like you might have your iPod in Automatic sync mode. When in that mode you can't drag and drop specific videos to the iPod in the manner that you are describing. You've got a couple choices.

  • You can place your iPod in Manual sync mode. This seems to be what you're implying you would like. To Do this:
  1. Open iTunes and connect your device
  2. Click on your device name on the left pane under devices.
  3. On the summary tab check Manually manage music and videos
  4. Drag your video from your library onto your device.
  5. Your'e done, it will begin to sync automatically.

2) You can make use of the automated syncing features.
  1. Open iTunes and connect your device.
  2. Select the device from the left pane by clicking on the device name.
  3. Ensure that Manually manage music and videos is unchecked.
  4. Click on the Movies tab and check Sync movies
  5. Browse the list of movies and place check marks next to the movies that you would like to be synced.
  6. Click the sync button in the bottom right corner of iTunes.

How should i put pictures and video


Plug your iPod into your computer, open the iPod folder go into pictures and all your photos are going to be there. Then minimize that on half the screen, open the photos in your library on your computer and minimize it to the other half
if your screen. You can either drag on pic from you computer library to your iPod library; or you can right click on the photo you want, click copy, then place the cursor on the iPod library and right click again, and click paste.

If your video is already in mp4 format, you can drag and drop it into iTunes library. Plug in your iPod to computer, iTunes will detect the iPod automatically, then click iTunes menu "File -> Sync iPod", the mp4 video will be transferred to your iPod.
Otherwise, you have to convert the movie to iPod compatible mp4 video, and this step by step guide will show you how to do that. This way works pretty well with my iPod touch.

Make sure the video files you just imported will appear in this section. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Connect the USB cable to the dock bottom of the iPod Touch. Connect the other end of the cable to an available USB port on your computer. Wait a few minutes while iTunes recognizes your iPod Touch device. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4.

Can not put music video's on my ipod


1 Locate videos. There are four main places where you can find legal videos intended for iPod use. The iTunes store (where videos can be directly downloaded) and video podcasts are certainly the most popular, but digital copies from DVDs as well as personal digital videos can also be put on the device.
2 Import your videos into iTunes. If you have downloaded the videos from iTunes or have downloaded a video podcast from the service, this step has been done for you (as well as step 3), and you can proceed to step 4. However, if you are trying to put digital copies, or personal videos on the iPod, put all of the videos in a central folder on the desktop. Go to iTunes and select the "Add file to iTunes" to import the contents of your folder to the iTunes program.
3 Convert non-iTunes files. iPods only work with MPEG-4 videos, so if you are uploading videos of other formats, such as AVI or WMV, they will need to be converted with the iTunes program. Highlight the videos you need to convert and right-click to pull up a sub-menu. Select "convert" to begin the process. Alternately, you can drag the files into the iTunes conversion queue, which is on the right side of the program. You will see a notice when your files are finished converting.
4 Sync your iPod. When your new video files are ready, simply plug your iPod Classic into a USB port and then drag the video files you wish to put on your device over the iPod icon. The icon will then change to "syncing" status. Wait a few minutes while the videos are transferred. Once the icon has changed back to normal, simply press the eject button and unplug your iPod.
i recomend trying the arcsoft media converter 3 for starters and go from there

Download iTunes from Acer notebook to iPod nano 8gb


iPod offers three ways to transfer music from your computer. You can select one of the following update modes from the iPod Preferences menu in iTunes:
1. Automatically update all songs and playlists. This is the default mode, in which your entire music library, including playlists, is automatically synched to your iPod. If the music library on your computer exceeds the iPod storage capacity, iTunes will offer to choose a selection of songs to sync to iPod.
2. Automatically update selected playlists. With this option, iTunes automatically copies only the playlists you have selected to iPod when you connect it to the computer. This option can be selected by accessing the Music tab of the iPod settings.
3. Manually manage music. You can also choose to transfer music to iPod manually. This allows you to drag and drop individual songs and playlists from iTunes to iPod. You can find this option by accessing the Summmary tab of the iPod settings.
