Question about Apple iPod MA446LL/A MP3 Player

18 Answers

Unable to sync cannot find folder

I had the ipod in automatic sync and it downloaded my library of over 8000 songs. I changed it to the Manage mode and undocked. When I reconnect, iTunes does not recognize the ipod and iTunes is frozen. I disconnect the ipod and get an error about cannot find folder.

Any ideas?

Thanks...

    I have already reinstalled iTunes and Apple replaced the ipod. The same thing is happening.

  • RobertMonaco Jul 17, 2008

    My songs are all on an external hard drive. I have changed the path in preferences in iTunes. The download of the songs was fine in automatic sync mode. The problem is now when I want to change it to Manage, when I reconnect.

  • RobertMonaco Jul 17, 2008

    I have reset the ipod and restored it many times.

  • RobertMonaco Jul 17, 2008

    meaning from the external hard drive?

  • RobertMonaco Jul 17, 2008

    This solution may work. I will try this one.

  • RobertMonaco Jul 17, 2008

    Will reinstall iTunes and let it find library from hard drive.

  • RobertMonaco Jul 17, 2008

    ipod shows up as H drive

  • RobertMonaco Jul 17, 2008

    I use the same data cable for the other 80g ipod and it works fine.

  • RobertMonaco Jul 17, 2008

    The white cable I got with my ipod? From the computer to the ipod?

  • RobertMonaco Jul 17, 2008

    I feel like throwing it at the wall, but Apple replaced it and the same thing is happening. Apple restored the ipod, synced with their library at the Apple store. Changed to Manage and had the same error.

  • RobertMonaco Jul 17, 2008

    I cant get the ipod to be recognized by iTunes because it is in the Manage mode. How do I make these changes?

  • RobertMonaco Jul 17, 2008

    did that already

  • RobertMonaco Jul 17, 2008

    sound good

  • RobertMonaco Jul 17, 2008

    have already uninstalled itunes but will do it again

  • RobertMonaco Jul 18, 2008

    That didnt work..

  • RobertMonaco Jul 18, 2008

    Still cannot get this working correctly..HELP!

  • RobertMonaco Jul 18, 2008

    I did the uninstall and install last nite and it did not work.

  • RobertMonaco Jul 20, 2008

    I shared the iTunes library with another user. It is better, but still takes 10 minutes to be recognized in iTunes and still freezes iTunes during those 10 minutes. It's better than before but something still wrong. My other 80g iPod works fine.

    Question - in Device Manager should the Apple USB show up under Disk Drives or USB Connectors?

    Apple said it should not show up under Disk Drives, but mine does.

    Thanks.

  • RobertMonaco Jul 20, 2008

    My computer recognizes the ipod fine.

  • RobertMonaco Jul 20, 2008

    still not correct, see my latest update.

  • RobertMonaco Jul 20, 2008

    not working still..

  • RobertMonaco Jul 20, 2008

    should it show up under Disk Drive or USB in Device Manager?

  • RobertMonaco Jul 20, 2008

    how do i take it off disk drive?

  • RobertMonaco Jul 20, 2008

    works on another computer

  • RobertMonaco Jul 20, 2008

    thanks

  • RobertMonaco Jul 20, 2008

    yes iTunes works fine without the ipod connected and it works fine after the 10 minute wait now for it to recognize the ipod. During those 10 minutes, it looks like something else is trying to access it.

  • RobertMonaco Jul 20, 2008

    I have iTunes 7.7

  • RobertMonaco Jul 20, 2008

    sorry, no help here

  • RobertMonaco Jul 20, 2008

    I think I can wait the 10minutes for iTunes to recognize my iPod rather than reformatting the computer..thanks.

  • RobertMonaco Jul 20, 2008

    no problem isnt solved, because I shouldnt have to wait 10 minutes before iTunes recognized the iPod. My other 80g iPod is recognized immediately. What would be the difference?

  • RobertMonaco Jul 20, 2008

    Microsoft Windows XP
    Home Edition
    Version 2002
    Service Pack 2

    Dell Dimension DV051
    Intel (R)
    Pentium (R) 4 CPU 2.80 GHZ
    2.79GHz, 0.99 GB of RAM

  • RobertMonaco Jul 20, 2008

    hmmm..not sure about that yet. Isnt this dangerous?

  • RobertMonaco Jul 20, 2008

    this will be last resort

  • RobertMonaco Jul 20, 2008

    I am connecting both to the same usb port. One works immediately, the other takes 10 minutes.

  • RobertMonaco Jul 20, 2008

    is that the same as restoring it from Itunes?

  • RobertMonaco Jul 20, 2008

    will keep that in mind..thanks.

  • RobertMonaco Jul 20, 2008

    been to Apple repair twice..1st time they replaced the ipod..still happens. 2nd time it worked fine for them in their store.

  • RobertMonaco Jul 20, 2008

    thanks

  • RobertMonaco Jul 20, 2008

    ok will try..thanks

  • RobertMonaco Jul 20, 2008

    that isnt the issue..sorry

  • RobertMonaco Jul 20, 2008

    Thanks, I already knew this. That is not the problem.

I found the only way to resolve the issue was to change my settings from manual update and let it sync to a playlist (You need to make the playlist first otherwise you lose everything on the touch) or to the main library if it's less GB than the space on your touch.

It now connects instantly like before.

Apple definitely needs to fix it though.

To use your iPod with iTunes, obviously the first thing you're going to want to do is to connect it. It'll take a second. Over here under devices, your iPod's going to pop up. The first time you do this, you're going to need to name your iPod. In my case, I've just named mine Matt's iPod. Underneath you'll see music, movies, TV shows. You can browse at different types of media that are on your iPod this way. iPods is by default going to automatically sync all your files to your iPod. What this means is that it'll automatically transfer all the files from your library onto your iPod. Every time you plug it in, it's going to change what's on your iPod according to what you've changed in your library. You can disable this if you want more control over what's on your iPod by clicking on summary and going down here and clicking manually manage music and videos. When you do this, you're going to have to obviously, transfer files over to your iPod. To do that, all you have to do is click a track and drag it over here onto your iPod. As you can see, files are transferred rather quickly. You can also transfer play lists this way. Just click and drag it up and it's going to automatically transfer there. When you're done transferring files, you're going to want to click this button to the right of your iPod and that's going to eject your iPod and you can safely remove it. I hope you've learned a lot today about iTunes and happy downloading.

Actullay there is a simpler way around this. There is this software that lets you copy songs directly from your PC to iPOD. Its a freeware. Give it a shot.

The description says For some users who are frustrated by the iTunes, iPod Music Transfer can help you transfer video, songs, movies and TV shows to iPod directly. Just connect your iPod to computer and one click is enough;

  • Santiago Vallejo
    Santiago Vallejo Jul 20, 2008

    look at this link,



    You should try to change your itunes version. Either to a newer version, or and older one.

  • Santiago Vallejo
    Santiago Vallejo Jul 20, 2008

    Robert,



    Is your problem solved now?

  • Santiago Vallejo
    Santiago Vallejo Jul 20, 2008

    Okay,



    It seems then as a problem in your Computer and not a comflict between the ipod and itunes anymore.

    It is working, but you tell me it is slow.



    Could you describe me your computer's specifications?

    You can see them by clicking on

    start > (righ-click)my computer > properties.

  • Santiago Vallejo
    Santiago Vallejo Jul 20, 2008

    Oh, im sorry.

    I didnt miss understood what you say.

    Well, if your other 80Gb ipod is recognized imidialy then it is ineed something on you ipod.



    Please give me a minute while i do some research on the topic.

  • Santiago Vallejo
    Santiago Vallejo Jul 20, 2008

    Robert,



    It can either be because your ipod's harddrive has many data, or it could have damaged files.



    You should also try to conect them both on the same USB port. because some USB ports are faster than others, and that could be the reasone why it takes les time with one of your Ipods.

  • Santiago Vallejo
    Santiago Vallejo Jul 20, 2008

    As a last resort, you can try to reformat your Ipod, but you will lose all of your data.

    You can do it the safe way by plugging it, waiting untill ituned recognize it. And then go to your ipod's tab. and select format.



    You can also go to start > MyComputer > (right-click) your ipod > select format harddrive

  • Santiago Vallejo
    Santiago Vallejo Jul 20, 2008

    Robert, if restoring your ipod with Itunes dosent work, im afraid you will either have to wait untill itunes opens your ipod or send it to apple since that is a hardware failure that cant be easily solved.



  • Santiago Vallejo
    Santiago Vallejo Jul 20, 2008

    Yes, it will be the same Robert.



    The only diference is that you have more options when you format it by the computer way. But you ahve to select the option Fat32, or else it wont work properly. So, it is the same, but safer.

  • Santiago Vallejo
    Santiago Vallejo Jul 20, 2008

By the way is your Ipod detected by your computer when you plug it in? Do you see a found new hardware icon to notify you that your IPOD is detected by your pc, IF the PC cannot be recognize your ipod try connecting it on a different USB port or try using another pc and check if you can sync the IPOD with Itunes.

Hope that helps.............

If u just uninstall and reinstall, i think it wont work, as, there will be lots of temporary files stored with respect to tat,

so wat i suggest is , uninstall everything,and then, in the documents and setting , go to application folder,which is a hidden and delete the files related to itunes.. also, search all the hidden folders and delete,
similarly, goto program files, and in tat, common files, and there, once again, delete the files and folders related to itunes and then try installing ur software newly and check if ur problem is solved.....

1. Configure iTunes to enable Disk Use on the iPod and to NOT start iTunes when you connect the iPod.
2. Shut down iTunes and eject the iPod
3. Reconnect the iPod, run Disk Utility / Repair Disk. This finds lots of errors.
4. Start iTunes and everything runs just fine. I can change settings, add contents, delete content, click Apply etc.
5. When done, eject the iPod, remove the cable and close iTunes
6. Reconnect the iPod, run Disk Utility / Repair Disk. Again, will find lots of errors.
7. Eject iPod
8. iPod should now work fine.
9. When you want to resync, start again from 3 (you may not find any errors though as you ran a Repair Disk is step 6).

    About your problem, just quick hint while I fix the Tom Tom on the other post. Check your Itunes settings, there is one that set the default folder, if you change the default folder it will work.
    It will probably work also if you uninstall and reinstall I tunes.

All you have to do is remap the drive in Itunes and let the library rebuild by adding a new folder in Itunes.

You will have to make sure that all the reference to the external hard drive path to your songs are correct in order to get the manual management to work.

The easy way to do is to uninstall ITunes, reninstall it, and let it rebuild your library from the external hard drive. Then manual mangement should work.

Mine is setup the same way at home.

  • Tim Babcock
    Tim Babcock Jul 20, 2008

    If you make it into a hard drive, Windows will scan for pictures and other files on your Ipod slowing things down. I personally don't thinks its practical for storing files on there when you have a jump drive.



    That can speed things up on an 80 gig model.

  • Tim Babcock
    Tim Babcock Jul 20, 2008

    If you take it off as a hard drive device, it will speed the process up. You won't see it as a disk drive but you will see it as a USB device.

Hi,

Did you load iTunes or are you copying files onto it in Windows Explorer using the ipod's disk mode? You have to copy them in iTunes for it to work.

Posted on Jul 17, 2008

  • Priya darshan Jul 17, 2008

    Also are you selecting the folder you need? iTunes should ask you where you
    want to sync the songs from. Select the folder with your songs and
    it should be ok.

    If you need anymore help let me know

I bought an ipod 2gig nano with 117 songs downloaded. I like maybe 30. how can I delete the other songs?


Generally speaking, you'll clean up your iPod with iTunes to erase unwanted songs and add new songs. You have two ways to delete music from iPod with iTunes, and they can be helpful when you want to get rid of the unwanted songs. iTunes provides automatic and manual methods to help you manage the songs in your device. When you are using the automatic way to manage iPod music, every time you connect iPod to computer with USB cable, your iPod will sync with iTunes Music library. If you have your iTunes Music library organized, you can delete unwanted music from iPod with this easy method. If you want to manually edit your iPod music, you can check Prevent iPods, iPhones and iPads from syncing automatically in iTunes by clicking Edit > Preferences > Devices. Then you can manually sync the songs and playlists to your iPod with iTunes.

Download Hot men onto apple I pad


Sorry for my silly question but what is hot men? Is it a song you want?

If the song is already on your computer and you want to transfer it to your iPod, you can always count on iTunes.

The next guidance will show you how to transfer music from computer to iPod with iTunes.
  1. Connect your iPod to PC via matched USB cable. Then click the iPod icon on the left corner of the interface. To manage your media files manually, you'd better go to "Options" under "Summary" tab, cancel "Automatically sync when this iPod is connected" and check "Manually manage music and videos". Don't forget to click "Apply" when it's done.
  2. Import music into iTunes library from computer by clicking "File" and then "Add File to Library". Once transferred successfully, you can select the music icon on top to see all the songs.
  3. Click "Music" under "Settings" tab. Choose "Sync Music". You can either sync entire music library or selected playlists as you like. Then click "Sync" button at the bottom to transfer music from computer to iPod.
If you don't want to use iTunes, please take a look at this guide for an alternative method.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Adding content on your computer to iTunes
iTunes lets you add digital audio and video files on your computer directly to your iTunes library. You can add audio files that are in AAC, MP3, WAV, AIFF, Apple Lossless, or Audible.com (.aa) format. If you have unprotected WMA content, iTunes for Windows can convert these files to one of these formats. Video content in QuickTime or MPEG-4 format can also be added to iTunes. To learn how to add these files to iTunes follow the steps below.
Open iTunes From the File menu, choose one of the following choices: Mac Add to Library Windows Add File to Library Add Folder to Library Navigate to and select the file or folder that you want to add If iTunes is set to "Copy files to the iTunes Music folder when adding to library", iTunes will copy all content that is added to the iTunes library to the iTunes Music folder. Then adjust this setting or change the location of this folder, go to the Advanced tab in iTunes preferences.

I pod nano looses songs and scrambles albums.


This may have something to do with how the ipod is reading the names of the songs.
Hook your ipod up to iTunes and when the summary screen comes up uncheck the "automatically sync music"
This will put it in Manage Music Manually mode.
click the music folder and inspect the song titles.
if a son has something in the name such a a number before the name title change the song name to remove the numeral. see if it comes back in order.
as for losing songs, the ipod will remove songs when you sync if it doesn;t find it in your playlist.
this may be whats going on.

How do i get what i accidently deleted back on my ipod


hook the ipod up to itunes and when it opens to the page that you see the picture of the ipod. put a check mark next to the automatically sync my ipod.
However, if you have other song on your ipod that are not in your library they will be delete during the sync.
No here is the best way to do it.
put a check next to manage music manually, instead of syncing it.
find the music file folder on your computer, open it up and minimize it.
open itunes and click on music under your ipod. now maximized your music folder and drag the songs into the white area with all the lines. the songs will load onto your ipod.
do only about 100 or so at a time to avoid problems.
to get multiple song click on the top song, and press shift and highlight the last song this will mark all songs in between to be moved. now drag the highlighted songs and watch them load.

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!
