Connect your ipod to your computer, when it says "sharing", do this: press and hold "menu" button and the center of the circle till it turns off the screen (reseting iPod). Then wait for it to light back on. Hopefully that should work..

If you are using Vista, here is a patch from Apple:

If you're on XP, then just try reinstalling iTunes, or get the latest version HERE.(latest version 7.6.1.9)

Also try using a different port.

The problem is, i want to put music from my laptop onto my apple ipod 4GB a1051, how do i do that please?


The following information has come directly from the apple support web site.

Adding Content Automatically or Manually
There are two ways to add content to iPod nano: ? Automatic syncing: When you connect iPod nano to your computer, iPod nano is automatically updated to match the items in your iTunes library. You can sync all your songs, playlists, videos, and podcasts, or, if your entire iTunes library doesn’t fit on iPod nano, you can sync only selected items. You can sync iPod nano automatically with only one computer at a time. ? Manually managing iPod nano: When you connect iPod nano, you can drag items individually to iPod nano and delete them individually from iPod nano. You can add songs from more than one computer without erasing songs from iPod nano. When you manage music yourself, you must always eject iPod nano from iTunes before you disconnect it.

The following URL will bring you to the iPod Nano manual. For more information on setting up you iPod see chapter 2: Setting up iPod Nano

http://manuals.info.apple.com/en_US/iPod_nano_5th_gen_UserGuide.pdf

I hope that information above has helped is some way.
If possible please rate this solution.

Don't know how to download from computer library to ipod


Connect your iPod to your computer with the USB cable. Start up iTunes (if you don't have it you can download it for free from http://www.itunes.com.

Once you start up iTunes click on File -- Add to Library

Then select the music you want in your iTunes Library. Once it's loaded you'll see your iPod listed in the left pane and you will be able to drag and drop any song you want onto the iPod.

Or you can create a playlist in your iTunes library and drag the entire playlist to the iPod.

Click on your iPod in the left pane and you will see a page that will allow you to manually update music or let iTunes sync automatically. If you choose the automatic function and you have more music than will fit on your iPod then iTunes will pick random songs to fill it.

Hi i have iPod nano (gray) 8 gb mp4/wma/rec/amv. i don't know how to use it i didn't recieve any instructions with it and i don't know how to use the itunes website. can you send me the instructions for...


Hi! You want to use itunes website to buy songs and games or you want to use itunes for syncronizing your songs in ipod. If you want to add songs and other stuff to your ipod then download the itunes from http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/ and install it. After installing the ipod connect the ipod with the computer.

After connecting the ipod with the PC it will automatically detect your ipod. And then add your favourite songs to your ipod by dragging them into the library or by importing them into library from file tab.

Cannot load music from windows media onto my ipod nano


As far as I have always known, you need to use iTunes in order to sync your music to the iPod. The firs thing you'll want to do is to make sure you know where all of your music files are located (i.e., the folders they are in). After you install iTunes, you will need to add your songs to the iTunes library. To do this, open iTunes, click on the 'File' tab at the top left, then click on 'Add Folder to Library.' Then proceed to finding your folder. It makes it a lot easier if you group them all together into one folder. This isn't necessary, but if you are short on time or impatient, it works wonders. Alternatively, you can drag and drop the files into the library. Just click a file or folder, drag it into the library space (the song list under music), and let go of the mouse button. After syncing your music to iTunes, connect your iPod and it should either connect right away or ask you if you want to update the firmware. If the latter appears, accept the update. Afterwards, if during the setup you decided to allow iTunes to manage your iPod's syncing options (advisable, though you can change it later if you decide against it), it automatically sync your music to the iPod. Also, for reference, whatever is in your iTunes library will be synced to your iPod. It creates a mirror image. The download for the iTunes setup is in the link below. Also on the page is a link to tutorials to show you how to make the most out of your music going experience. Have fun with your new iPod!

    3. To automatically update your iPod with all the songs and playlists in your library, select "Sync music" and then select "All songs and playlists." iTunes loads the songs and playlists in your iTunes library onto your iPod, and deletes songs from your iPod that aren't in your library.
    4. To automatically update your iPod with only certain playlists, select "Sync music" and "Selected playlists," and then select the playlists you want synchronized.
  5. To manually sync your iPod:
    1. Make sure that "Manually manage music" is selected.
    2. Click Music (below Library, on the left side of the iTunes window) and then drag songs and playlists to your iPod.

Ipod nano (unable to download music onto it)


1st answer: You may have a non-Apple product. There are lots of knockoffs of the Nano. Here is a link to check: http://reviews.ebay.com/FAKE-Apple-iPod-Nano-and-iPod-Shuffle-Exposed_W0QQugidZ10000000

Yes, he can but it would have to be done manually, meaning outside of the iTunes application. When the iPod is connected to a computer, it will show up on the desktop of a Mac as another disk drive. Be warned, as soon as you connect the new iPod to the computer, iTunes will load and attempt to sync (copy) all the songs in its library to the iPod.
