Hi,

Thanks for contacting Fixya.com
Please follow the bellow instructions..
Open itunes.Plug the iPod you want to sync with iTunes into a USB connection for the computer.Now close the window that opens in iTunes by clicking on either the "X" button or the "No" button. If no window opens, however, you can safely proceed to the next step.
Click on the link for the iPod that was plugged in located underneath "Devices."Select the tab named "Summary" at the top of the main iTunes window. Four different settings for the iPod will appear in the bottom of iTunes.Click on the box found to the left of "Manually manage music and videos" to enable that setting.
Click "Apply" to save the "Manually manage" setting on the iPod. You will now be able to sync that iPod without iTunes automatically erasing the library on the device.
Please check the useful links bellow and go through the article to get a detailed idea about your query as to how to transfer ipod content to your computer without erasing the content…

If you bought those songs legally.
- Download them again on the computer. Both iTunes and Amazon allow you to download again.
- Then for iTunes purchases, use the "Store" menu of iTunes to "Authorize This Computer".
- Next, use the File menu of iTunes to "Add to Library".
For "not purchased" (nudge nudge) songs.
- Use this iPod transfer to copy song files from the iPhone/iPod to the computer.
- Next, use the File menu of iTunes to "Add to Library".
- Next, sync your device with iTunes, done.

When syncing iPod to a new computer, you need to move the contents in iTunes library to the new computer at first. It is not hard for you to move the media files, ebooks and apps to new computer with a flash drive, and you can easily sync the files to iTunes library. It is believed that sometimes the syncing problem has something to do with your iPhone music. Users in Apple Community has given out one solution which needs users to manually delete all the music files in their iPod and then sync with the items in iTunes library on the new computer. However, some of the users may not want to delete all the music files as some of the files may not be the purchased items. At this moment, you can take advantage of the iPod transfer software, which will be helpful for syncing iPod to new computer.

I will try and make this as short as possible and hope you understand what I am asking. I just got an Ipod Classic last month and signed up with Itunes and then downloaded about 1300 songs from my cd...


You can't "backwards sync" (put music from your iPod back onto your computer) through iTunes. When you went to sync after you got your fixed computer back, I'm assuming iTunes tried to copy what was in iTunes (nothing) to your iPod, which probably is what caused these problems.

Assuming you still have the music on your iPod, I would recommend transferring the music from your iPod back to your computer (to a folder other than iTunes), restoring your iPod to factory settings, then moving all of the music files into iTunes and re-syncing your iPod.

There are two programs that are available to transfer songs from your iPod back onto your computer. The first is iDump and the second is YamiPod. I have found that iDump is the better of the two.
The link for iDump is:

Hope this helps!

My Ipod nano contains all my music. Unable to transfer to laptop


Unfortunately iTunes doesn't let you transfer anything other than your iTunes store purchases from your iPod.

Totransfer all your iPod content, all your music, playlists, videos,podcasts and photos to your new iTunes library you will need todownload software like TouchCopy.

Here is how to use TouchCopy

  1. Download and Install TouchCopy. Downloads are free and are available for both PC and Mac.
  2. Start up TouchCopy by double-clicking the TouchCopy icon on your desktop
  3. Connect your iPod or iPhone to your computer. TouchCopymay start iTunes - don't worry, TouchCopy has fixed it so that iTuneswill not sync music or video with your iPod while TouchCopy is running.These changes are restored when you quit TouchCopy.
  4. Now select which songs you want to copy into iTunes, if you want toselect all your music, select "Music" from the list on the left andclick on "Copy to iTunes" button in the TouchCopy control bar. In a similar way, you can also use TouchCopy to copy your playlists, videos, podcasts, photos, contacts, calendars and notes.
  5. Whenyou are satisfied that all your iPod content is safely in iTunes, useiTunes to re-sync your iPod which will enable you to add new content toit.

Determining the ipod problem


If the iPod needs to be updated, try installing the update onto the computer without the iPod attached. Once its finished install the iPod into the computer as normal. It should detect the download automatically.
If the iPod won't charge via USB link cord onto the computer, try buying the adaptor plug socket which you can use without the computer. At least then you'll get a chance to see if the iPod can hold a reasonable charge.
I had a similar problem at Xmas there with a new iPod classic. Eventually I had it replaced as it was found to have problems with the hard disk on the iPod itself. Good luck!

I pod touch while sincing new data, old is getting erased


Hi, I think you are using Itunes to Sync your IPOD-T.

If u r using Itunes Then u shouldn't delete any thing from ur ITUNES... Because, Sync is a option which will check the contents of your ipod and Itunes... If u erase anything from your itunes, then it will erase the same in ur IPod as well.... So U shouldn't delete anything from ur itunes....

Other option would be Manual Sync option... Where u have to drag and drop the contents from ur Itunes. Everytime....

Let me know, whether u want to manually add contents to ur ipod. so tat i can send u the settings?

Here is one answer, from the apple website:

Syncing music manuallyIf your prefer not to automatically sync music content to your iPod, you can setup manual syncing.
  1. Connect your iPod to your computer and open iTunes.
  2. Select your iPod in the DEVICES section of the iTunes Source list.ht1351_7.jpg
  3. In the main iTunes browser window, select the Summary tab.
  4. Select the "Manually manage music and videos" option. This will deselect the automatic sync settings for the Music, Movies, and TV Shows tabs. Automatic syncing for Podcasts, Photos, Contacts, and Games can be individually disabled by selecting each of those tabs. Note: When manually managing iPod, disk use is enabled and iPod must always be manually ejected in iTunes before disconnecting.ht1351_8.jpg
  5. Click Apply.
  6. To manually add music, audiobooks, movies or TV shows to your iPod, choose one of these categories under LIBRARY in the Source list
  7. Select and drag items you want (to choose multiple items, Command-click items on a Mac or Control-click items in Windows), then drag them onto your iPod icon in the Source list.
  8. To add a playlist, select it in the Source list and drag it onto your iPod in the same ways as a song.ht1351_9.jpg
  9. When you are ready to disconnect your iPod, select it in the Source list and click the eject icon.

Changed pc and new pc cannot work with ipod


You can download a developers version, not the final product of Songbird. It works just like itunes, but less problematic. It will allow you to "mount" the ipod as a disk, then you can save, the songs to your PC. It will ask you if you want to sync with it, just say no and you will be able to view the contents. I didnt make Songbird, I have just used it recently for the same problem. Best of Luck.
