Problems transfering playlists and files; plus a few others things.
1.After I have successfuly ripped a CD, using Audiograbber and created a playlist using Real Player, I synchronize with my e280,or manualy transfer some songs and only to have them come up emply. The song info is correct, but the file size is 0.
On a playlist it might be everyother song. On some rare occations, I've been able
to change the file name and get it to work. Why would it rip correctly on computer, but not transfer all of the songs correctly to the player?
2.Also, on the player I see a large number of songs listed as Unknown, and/or Tracks do not appear when I look for them on the PC using Window Explorer.
Any idea why not?
3. Somehow I seem to have deleted from the player the names of all the artists. I have no idea what I did or how I might get the info back.
4. Does it make any difference that when I first transferred songs to the player they were not placed in the Music folder, but went to the players hard drive?

Connect your iPod to computer, iTunes will detect the iPod automatically, then click iTunes menu "File -> Sync iPod", the songs will be transferred from iTunes to iPod.
Or You may try this ipod transfer, it's an iTunes alternative that can help you manage iPod files including delete, upload, play, copy, etc. It's much easier to use than iTunes. It can also help you manage multiple iPods on one computer or manage iPod on multiple computers, even copy music and video from iPod back to computer or iTunes. So you will not lose your iPod files even though you switch to a new iTunes library. My friends recommend it to me, it works pretty well. http://www.ipod-transfer-copy.com/ipod-iphone-to-computer-transfer-cucusoft.html
Hope it helps. Feel free to email me if you need further help.
If you want not only your content but also your playlists to exist on your new computer, you will want to transfer a copy of all your playlists from your old computer. To do this, choose File > Library > Export Library on your old computer. Save the XML file that is created to your desktop.
Send the playlists file to yourself as an e-mail attachment, use an external drive, or use file sharing to move the playlists file to your new computer. Once the file is on your new computer, open iTunes and choose File > Library > Import Playlist. The import process will remove any items from the playlists that you didn't share via Home Sharing.
You need to create a playlist for the iPhone. This isn't intuitive and I don't know why it's this way. It works great, there just isn't anything explaining what to do. This seems to snag Windows users the most. Maybe Mac users are already used to doing things this way? I don't know.
Below is a picture of my iTunes. Look down in the lower-left corner and see that my playlist is highlighted. At the very bottom-left corner you can click the plus sign to create a new playlist. Then drag all of the music you want to the playlist. Finally, in the music tab of your iPhone, make sure you click the playlist you just made to sync all music on that list to your phone.
Creating Playlist To create a playlist for Windows Media Player, follow these steps: 1. Launch Windows Media Player. 2. Clear the List pane by clicking the Clear List pane button. 3. Click the arrow below the Library Tab then select Create Playlist. 4. Type in the name of your Playlist. Loading Content 14 5. Click Songs from Library then drag them from the Details pane to the List Pane. 6. To rearrange the songs, drag them up or down in the List pane. 7. Click Save Playlist. Transferring Playlists To transfer playlists to your Sansa player, follow these steps: 1. Connect your Sansa player to the computer. 2. Select Sync digital media files to this devices using Windows Media Player on initial connection. 3. Right-click on Your Sansa Player, then select Set Up Sync. Loading Content 15 4. Select Personal Playlists from the drop down menu on the left pane. 5. Highlight the playlists you want to transfer to your Sansa player, click Add, then Finish. 6. Synchronization will start as soon as you click Finish. To see the Sync progress, click on Sync Results.
First you need to set your Sansa m250 mp3 player to MTP mode:
) Tap your menu button and select "Settings" > "USB". 2) On this screen, make sure that there is a check next to "Auto Detect" and NOT "MSC".
Note: Music that was transferred to the player in "MSC" (Mass Storage Class) mode will not be accessible once the player is put into MTP mode.
However, the music can still be accessed by switching the player back to MSC mode.
To transfer a playlist using Windows Media Player version 10:
- Make sure device is showing as an "audio device" and in MTP mode - Create a playlist by right clicking a song in the library, add to>additional playlists>new or by saving a now playing list - Select the Sync tab and click "Sync settings" - Check "Synchronize device automatically" - Set "View" to "All Playlists" - Place a check next to the playlists they want to transfer to device - Media Player should then sync those lists once you hit OK.
Once you Sync for the first time a new folder "Playlists" will appear in your m250 using Windows Explorer. Once that folder is created you can even use Windows Explorer alone to create playlists, all you have to do is right click on a song and choose create a playlist. Double click on playlist > Reference Tab, on the window you simply drag and drop your songs.

If your IPOD is set to automatic song transfer, and you created an ?on the go? playlist, the IPOD will automatically transfer all songs along with the playlist.
I haven?t tried the following myself yet, but this is the only way that I can think of:
Cancel the auto transfer option ? from the source list in itunes choose the iPod icon and press on the options button. Choose ?manually manage songs and playlists?
If it doesn?t work then I guess its more of a one directional thing, that you get more options going from the PC to the iPod then the other way around.
