The following simple guidance is about transfer music from old iPod to new iPod with the "Transfer Purchases" function of iTunes:

  1. Plug the Old iPod into computer via the USB cable. Then launch iTunes.
  2. Click "File > Device > Transfer Purchases". iTunes will automatically transfer the songs to iTunes library.
  3. Plug the new iPod into computer. Then import the songs from iTunes to the new iPod.

How to delete playlist

There are 3 ways you can resort to delete playlist from iPhone. Just follow one of them.

If you are annoyed by using iTunes to manage music in your iPod, you may not want to use it to delete playlist from iPod either. Fortunately, besides iTunes, you can use the third-party iPod transfer software to finish the task. Leawo iTransfer is regarded as the best one among all the iPod transfer programs available in the market.

Step 1. Run Leawo iTransfer and connect iPod to computer with USB cable. The software will recognize your iPod and display your iPod information on the main interface.

Step 2. Click the name of iPod in the left sidebar. Then you could see 2 categories: LIBRARY and PLAYLIST. Open "Playlists" tab. All available playlists on your iPod would show up. When you select one playlist, the songs in this playlist will show up in the right part.

Step 3. Right-click the name of the playlist you want to delete, and choose "Delete Playlist" button. Leawo iTransfer would immediately help you remove the selected playlist on your iPod device. The songs in this playlist won't be deleted, so don't worry about that.

When Leawo iTransfer finishes deleting playlist from iPod, users can enjoy the songs in iPod without switching playlists. With Leawo iTransfer, you won't lose any songs of the playlists deleted. So even if you delete all playlists from your iPod device within Leawo iTransfer, you can still enjoy the songs with iPod, or in a much easier way.
Note:
1. Leawo iTransfer supports all iPod models, including: iPod touch, iPod Shuffle, iPod Nano, iPod Mini, iPod Classic.
2. Excepting deleting playlist from iPod, it also helps with other data transfers of iOS devices, for example, you can transfer music from iPhone to computer with this software.

Transfer playlist from Itunes to Ipod Nano

Open iTunes and plug in your iPod. On the left sidebar there should be your iPod name (If you can't find the sidebar, go to iTunes menu bar, under View, select Show Sidebar), go to your iTunes playlist and drag the songs you want to your iPod. For all of the songs, go to your iPod music library, even if you don't have songs, and on the bottom there should be a blue-ish bar. There might be a box saying "Autofill from iTunes library" click that ONLY if you want ALL songs from your iTunes to your iPod.
If you want to know how to put video or DVD movie onto iPod, I think this step by step guide would help you.

How to down load a song to my appleipod nano 2gb?

To download songs to iPod nano: m Simply connect iPod nano to your computer. If iPod nano is set to update automatically, the download begins. Important: The first time you connect iPod nano to a computer, a message asks if you want to transfer songs automatically. If you accept, all songs, audiobooks, and other items are deleted from iPod nano and replaced with the songs and other items from that computer. If you don’t accept, you can still download songs to iPod nano manually without deleting any of the songs already on iPod nano. While music is being downloaded from your computer to iPod nano, the iTunes status window shows progress, and the iPod nano icon in the Source list flashes red. When the download is complete, a message in iTunes says “iPod update is complete.” If you set iTunes to download music manually, you can reset it later to update iPod nano automatically. For more information, see “Updating iPod nano Manually” on page 22. To reset iTunes to update iPod nano automatically with all songs and playlists: 1 Open iTunes and select iPod nano in the Source list. 2 Click the Options button and click Music. 3 Select “Automatically update all songs and playlists.” The download begins automatically.
if you need further assistance please let me know. Thanks, MIDWEst-tek

Ipod nano 3rd generation and 1st generation nano

The first question I'm not sure. Is that the wireless network system that works with the wall outlets for power and networking?

The answer to the second question is No. You can only transfer playlists from ITunes into the IPod. Make sure your playlists are created in ITues before transferring.

How to transfer library from lime wire to ipod

I myself have a 4gb iPod Mini, so i can't transfer my full library to my iPod, at least until i get a Classic. But in your case, you need to set up your iPod ot let you manually manage your music, and setting your iPod to only sync sonts that are checked in your library. When you manually manage your music you choose the music you want on it by Playlist, so the LimeWire playlist (that should have already been set up with the first song you downloaded from the program) will need to be checked in the "Playlists" box under the "Music" tab the next time you sync it.
Hope that helps!
