The 8gb ipod is an ipod nano. Comes in a variety of colours ranging from blu to pink.
This device will take synchronised items only from itunes 8 or later versions. If the itunes is lesser than itunes 8 then you will have ssuch difficulties as you are having.
Although the fact that you bought the device from Hong Kong also comes to play but normally knock offs take almost any format for music and vides.
To verify if the device is genuine get an itunes 8 on your computer and connect the ipod to it. there should be a part where you can check the device details if the device is not genuine it will be identified by the itunes.
Hope this solution was helpful

I bought a Touchscreen MP4 Player + Video Camera 8GB from Hong Kong and i cannot figure out how to upload music onto it. It doesn't use iTunes, it uses Windows Media Player. Can you help me get music onto...


Most of the Hong Kong MP3/4/5 and even 6 players merely require plugging them into the computer via a supplied USB cable. You would then merely click on "My Computer" and the player should show up as a hard drive. If you double click on this drive, you may see a folder labeled "MUSIC". If so, just drag and drop your MP3 music files into this folder. Similarly do the same goes for VIDEOS and PICTURES. The exception being that MP4 players usually require videos to be converted to RM or RMVB format (MP5 players usually play most formats without conversion).

Can't play videos


You need to use the Media Converter that came with the installation CD - must run video files only through it. Check manufacturer's website for software if you no longer have install CD.
