Synching Windows Media Player 11 files over to the Apple Ipod Nano

I have a small problem. When I plug in my Nano Itunes comes right up like it is supposed to do. My problem is this I put some videos in the Window Media Player 11 that are from Limewire originally like Sopranos season one a few episodes. Now I try to synch from the Windows Player to the Nano and it does not recognize that a portable player is even hooked up. Is there a way to get my shows on my Ipod without going through Itunes? Any help would be great as I am about to have joint replacemnet and the shows were to help me through this. Thanks

Unless your espisodes are in Mpeg 4 (MP4) format they will not work on your Nano.

You have to use ITunes to put anything into your IPod to play it back properly.

I can't get media player to sync with the ipod


Dear inarimi:
The iPod was not designed to sync with Windows Media Player; it only syncs with Apple's iTunes software. iTunes is a free program and can be downloaded from Apple's website. As you can imagine, Apple has no real reason to support Windows Media Player - their hardware is designed to work with their software.
There is only one solution I know of for those who prefer Windows Media Player to iTunes. A German company - MGTEK - has come up with a plug-in that allows the iPod to sync with Windows Media Player. The plug-in is not free, but you can try it out for 30 days at no charge. For details and download link, go to http://www.mgtek.com/dopisp/

Ipod nano 2gb


You can get the files from an online music service like iTunes, Napster, Rhapsody, Limewire, Bearshare, etc. Or you can use Windows Media Player 10 or 11 to "Rip" songs from a CD - I would reccommend ripping them in mp3 format.

Adding files from IPod Nano GB to work computer


IPod isn't compatible with Windows Media player. You have to use ITunes to manage your music files. Ipods use mp3, mp4, a protected form of mp4 unique to apple, and aac format. aac format isn't recognized by windows media player.

Snapbox mp3/mp4 player


It should tell you in the instructions that you need to download iTunes for Windows since it sounds like you're not on a Mac. All the controls for transferring music and synching photos etc are in iTunes. When you attach the iPod, you're connecting it to allow the transfer of files as though it was a USB Flash Memory stick, but this allows you to store other files such as Word docs on the iPod -- it does not allow you to transfer music. A big part of the reason for this is the digital rights management that the music labels insist upon.

I pod nano 8gb


iPod, iTunes, and Apple are not compatible with Windows Media Files (the downloads from Windows Media Players). What you want to do is try to Google a .wma to .mp3 converter, and download that. It will convert your files to .mp3 format, which can then be placed onto the iPod. I hope this helps,
