Depending on your model iPod, the file types (audio formats) that are compatible vary. You can find compatibility for a Shuffle at http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=300464-es, and since I don't know the model you have, you can link to any other model from there. This should solve the question at hand - thanks for rating FixYa!

I brought a chinese apple ipod of 32gb ...problem is when i put more than 10 songs i get a a format error even though there is no format error


MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto yourcomputer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3player.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player willcreate a MP3 music file for each music track.

Cannot play most music and also indicating invalid file format, open fail, decode error what should i do and can i make it play musics when copied onto de ipod


Most times, people often make the mistake of copying music files direct to the memory of the ipod device.
If you do this, you might be able to detect the songs but your ipod will not play the songs as it may not recognize their format.
For you to copy music files to your ipod, you would need to download the itunes program and install it to your computer.
With this installed, you can connect your ipod to your computer and open itunes. It would be displayed under your itunes program and you can then copy your music files using itunes by dragging them and dropping them on the name of your ipod as it is shown on the left hand side of the itunes program.
If after doing this, you still have the same problem, you can use your itunes to format the ipod and put the songs afresh.
Hope this helps you? Please comment for more information

You must be cautious and try to recover lost data from your iPod from reliable and proved software which is non-destructive and can recover all data—damaged or deleted. Any compromise can thwart your recovery process. Try Stellar Phoenix iPod Recovery Software.

Ipod Mini - Disk Error "cannot be read from or written to"


you need to format, full format, use windows explorer, right click on ipod then format, not quick, then load itunes, should give you the option to restore, do this, then should automatically sync music as long as you don't tick the manual manage box.
