Question about Apple iPod touch

1 Answer

Adding just a few items while keeping the rest...

Hello, is there a way to add/update my iTouch (and iPods in general) with new items without having to erase and replace the whole iPod every time? It takes a while to sync with all the photos, movies, and music I'm putting on it, so wanted to know if there's a way to just add new things to what I already have on my iTouch, nano, etc.
Thanks!

Hi xrgamer1

yes, there is a way ^-^

when you connect it to itunes, if you have the recent version it should take you to the ipod screen once itunes recognizes it and on that screen should be an option to manually manage songs and other content on your ipod ^-^

but sadly it doesn't work with the pictures on the ipod, there is no option to strictly control that, but what you could do is make a folder that you want your ipod to sync with and only put the pictures you want on your ipod in that folder and set your ipod to sync to it

Hope That Helps ^-^

Whenever i turn my itouch on it automatically says i need to plug it into itunes. It will not do anything but keep going to that, no matter how much i turn it on or off. So i plugged it into itunes, but...


Connect your iPod to the primary computer you use it with (the first one iPod synced with), and open iTunes. When you disconnect iPod from the computer, it will no longer be locked.If you can't unlock iPod using either [the code or connecting it to the computer you use to manage its songs]. . . you can restore your iPod to factory settings using iPod Updater. Please note that this will erase all data on your iPod. Afterwards, you can add your music and data back to your iPod.If you want to change the primary computer that your iPod is associated with, do this:1. Restore your iPod. Warning: The restore process cannot be undone.All of your songs and files will be deleted. Always make a backup of your important data.2. Connect your iPod to the computer that you want to be the primary computer.3. Open iTunes and synchronize.

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.

I have an iTouch, how do I know what applications - free or paid - will work with iTouch - I see iPod, iPhone, iPad, but not iTouch....thanks


Generally in the itunes store under requirements it tell you that the application is compatible with either iphone, ipod touch or ipad. You should note that the ipod touch is what you seem to call the itouch.

Why is my itouch registering as a digital camera and not a removable drive?


If you are referring to when you have it connected to an PC? This is normal, iPods/iPhones/iTouch register as an removable storage device when connected to an PC. This is useful because you can retrieve/add photo on to your device without using Apple software.

PLEASE VOTE IF THIS WAS HELPFUL. THANKS & GOOD LUCK.

New itouch 32 gig. All downloaded apps stop


Try turning off your ipod after installing a new app. Hold down the sleep/wake button on the top for 6 seconds, then slide accross to power off when prompted.

Otherwise, if that doesn't work, try restoring the update. Make sure you have the latest version of itunes, which you can get at www.apple.com/itunes.

Then make sure you have the latest firmware version for the ipod.

If all that doesn't fix your problem, try to restore your ipod via DFU mode. Here is a great step by step guide to do that. http://iphonefreakz.com/beginners-guide/howto-dfu-mode/

I hope this helps,

Nathan.


ps. keep in mind, that it could be bad programing if it is only happening on one application.

Music on Itouch shows up in Itunes but Itouch says No content add from Itunes


First you need to restart your itouch.
Then, plug it in to your computer and wait for iTunes to pop up.
Select a few songs from your library or some movies that you have and drag them to your iPod.
What I did was, dragged some movies on my itouch to the tv shows folder as soon as i did this everything popped back on to my screen

Update songs in IPOD


After your iPod shows up in iTunes, highlight your iPod if it doesn't automatically come up. Then on the first tab labeled Summary, under Options click the box that says Manually manage music and videos. Then you can highlight all the songs in your library that you want to add to your iPod and drag them onto the iPod. The files already on your iPod will not be overwritten.

Itouch unlock password


if you do not know your passcode then make sure it is plugged in 2 the cp and make sure the itouch is on the screen where it says enter passcode. then you hold the power and home button at the same time until the itouch completely turns off and then you keep on holding both buttons until the apple logo again. and after that appears, you let go of the power button but you keep holding the home button until the itouch says its connected to itunes. and then you are allowed to access it on itunes. then you need to restore it and it will restore ur hole ipod and there will not be a passcode anymore
