Dear ckrohn299,
First of all, do a backup of your iTunes Library by using the Apple guide:
http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=302392
After your backup has finished, start with the easiest fix by uninstalling and reinstalling iTunes. By following these instructions, you will only delete the application and not the music files themselves. To do this, click the Start menu, Settings, and Control Panel. Then double-click Add Or Remove Programs. Click to select iTunes from the list of installed software and then click the corresponding Change/Remove button. Click the Next button and then the OK button to confirm that you wish to uninstall iTunes. When prompted, select Yes, I Want To Restart My Computer Now and click the Finish button. After your computer restarts, browse the Program Files folder. Right-click the iTunes folder and click Delete. Next, double-click the iPod folder, right-click the Bin folder, and click Delete. Press WINDOWS-M to minimize all windows. Then right-click the Recycle Bin and click Empty Recycle Bin. Click the Start menu, Shut Down, and Restart.
After your computer restarts, double-click the My Computer icon, the C: drive (or the drive on which Windows is installed), Documents And Settings, your username, and Local Settings. Right-click the Temp folder and click Delete. Download the latest version of iTunes (www.apple.com/itunes) and the iPod Software (www.apple.com/ipod). Double-click the downloaded iTunes file and follow any on-screen instructions to complete the installation. Then double-click the downloaded iPod Software and follow the on-screen instructions.
If you still see the iPod Service Error, click the Start menu and click Run. Type msconfig in the Open field and click OK. Click the General tab, the Selective Startup radio button, and deselect the Load Startup Items checkbox. Click the Startup tab and click the iTunesHelper checkbox. Click the Services tab and click the Hide All Microsoft Services checkbox at the bottom of the window. Deselect all checkboxes in the list except for iPod Service, click OK, and click Restart. If this does not resolve the problem, try uninstalling and reinstalling iTunes one more time.
Finally, if after following these steps, you still see the iPod Service Error, right-click My Computer, click Manage, and click Services And Applications in the left pane. Click iPod Service in the right pane, click the Action menu, and click Properties. Click the Stop button in the resulting dialog box. Click the Start menu, click Run, and type "C:\Program Files\iPod\bin\iPodService.exe" /service. Make sure you include the quotation marks when you type. Click the OK button. Then click the Start menu, Shut Down, and Restart.
Regards,
Eddie Knight

How to add new mp3 songs


Install iTunes
Before you connect your iPod shuffle to your Mac or PC computer or use it, you must install the latest iTunes software.
2. Connect and Set Up your iPod shuffle Charge your battery by connecting it to an Apple iPod Power Adapter or connect your iPod to a high-power USB port —one that's located directly on your computer—to ensure that your computer charges your iPod battery. (If your computer doesn't seem to recognize your connected iPod , wait about 30 minutes to allow the iPod battery to charge before going further.)
3. Fill your iPod shuffle and iTunes with Music Once you finish the set up, iTunes will open. It will then either:
  • Automatically start filling your iPod with music from your iTunes library (if you set iTunes to automatically update your iPod)
OR
  • Allow you to pick and choose what music, audiobooks, and podcasts to add, if you opted to manually manage music on your iPod.
To manually add content, simply drag any file from your iTunes library or playlist to your iPod icon in the iTunes Source list. If you're using iTunes for the very first time, you'll need to add some music to iTunes first, such as songs from your own CDs or music already on your hard drive.
4. Disconnect your iPod shuffle Once you've got your music, audiobooks, and other files on your iPod, you're ready to enjoy it.
  • If you see an “OK to Disconnect” message on your iPod, simply disconnect it from your computer.
  • If you see a “Do Not Disconnect” message, click the eject icon that appears next to your iPod icon in the iTunes Source list and then disconnect your iPod from your computer when you see the “OK to Disconnect” message.
  • Disconnecting my iPod shuffle
5. Play your iPod shuffle Now you’re ready to enjoy your iPod.

All of a sudden after 2 years annot get my iPod to appear on computer. A sign comes up that says "The iPod "Lois' iPod" is synced with another iTunes Library. Do you want to erase this iPod and sync with...


This happens some times the computer has lost the record that the ipod was synced with this computer.

Because the ipod can only be synced with one computer at a time your are getting this message.

if you look in your itunes music library and all the muisc is still there then choose the "erase and sync option" this will erase the ipod and re- sync with this computer -

if your muisc is gone you have a much larger problem you need to search your computer for your missing music then add it back to itune when you find it by :

In itunes you go to the upper left to : File > add Folder to Library > and choose the folder the music is in this will re- add your music to the libray then you can " "erase and sync"

If all you music is gone off your computer a only on your ipod your going to have to download a free ipod rip program to remove all you muisc and put it back into your library. there are free ones you can downalod but they are hard to find I have used www.ipodrescue.com and it worked for me

good luck !

Need instructions on downloading songs onto IPod Shuffle


First you'll need iTunes, download it here free. Once you have installed iTunes, plug your iPod into your computer, then start up iTunes(it may start up on it's own). You will see your iPod under devices on the left side of the iTunes window, click it. If you bought your iPod brand new, then you will have to set up and register your iPod, it's a very fast and easy process. Now you need to put all your music into your iTunes library, if you have music on a CD, then insert your CDs into your disc slot, iTunes will ask you if you want to rip your music to your library, say yes. Once you have moved all your music to your iTunes library, your iPod will automatically be synced with the music you have added.
Hope this helps!

Jow do i put songs on ipod shuffle


There should be a cable that was included that has a USB connector on one side, and what appears to be a headphone connector on the left side.
1. Connect the headphone-like connector into the headphone jack on the ipod shuffle.
2. Connect the USB connector on the other end of the cable into the computer.
3. Start iTunes (if iTunes does not start automatically)
4. Drag music from your iTunes library to the device that appears on the left side
Alternatively, you can change the settings on the iPod to automatically sync with your library, or with a specific playlist that you make. To do so:
(steps 1-3 remain the same)
4a. Select your device on the list to the left above your playlists but below your music/video/etc libraries
5a. Click the Music tab from the screen that appears when you select your device
6a. Check the box that says "Sync Music" and you may either leave at it this to automatically sync your ipod with your music library (what is in your music library will be on your ipod) OR check a box next to the playlist you want from the list that becomes available when you checkmark "Sync Music"

Trying to load ipod shuffle


Do you have iTunes installed?? you have to rip the CD to iTunes and then you can sync them to your iPod shuffle. You can get instructions via the manual. iPod Shuffle Manual.
If you want to put music into the iTunes library that you already have on your PC, just go to 'File', then 'Add folder to library' and it will scan that folder and every sub-folder and put the music in the library. Be careful if your songs don't have ID3 tags otherwise iTunes won't be able to work out what they are and your songs will not be catagorized well at all.

Sync Old iPod Shuffle & iPod Nano


Are you saying, that you want to know if you can use your old iTunes that you had for your shuffle, on your new ipod? If so, the answer is yes. Copy your itunes music on a pordable disk. When you plug your ipod into your computer, it will recogonize that it is a different ipod. A box will come up and ask you if you want to have a new library. Click yes and then you will have a new library. Put your disk(s) in and copy them over to your itunes.

I hope this helps, but I'm sorry if it doesn't. I didn't exactly get what you were saying. I haven't exactly tried this, but I think it will work. Please rate my solution.

How to delete music off of the ipod shuffle?


You can either do a restore:
Connect to your computer and open itunes.
When you first open itunes you should be in "Devices"
Make sure you're in the "Summary" tab and you will have a button that says "Restore"
Click that and it will do the rest.


Or
Sync with an itunes library that has no files on it, this will also remove the files from your ipod.
