What seems to have happened is that either iTunes or the iPod folder has become corrupt. To solve this, download the very latest version of iTunes, install it, connect your iPod. If it wants to update the software on your iPod do this. Then on the main ipod page on iTunes click the button that says Restore. Choose the bottom most option if given any then go ahead and restore. You should now be able to sync as normal.

All the best

Load music on my ipod


Connect your iPod to your computer with the USB cable that came with your iPod. The iPod screen should say "Do not disconnect".

Your iPod should appear under Devices in the bar to the left.

Decide whether you want to sync your iPod with your iTunes library or manually put songs on your iPod.(nano only)

Syncing your iPod will automatically add all of the songs in your library to your iPod. It will also delete any songs from your iPod that are not in your library. Click on your iPod icon and select Sync in the lower right corner.

If you do not want all the songs in your library on your iPod, make a playlist of all the songs you do want, or decide which playlists you want to include on your iPod.

Click on your iPod icon
On the top bar, click on the button which says "Music"

Make sure the box that says "Sync Music" is checked, then check the box for whether you want your iPod to sync with the entire library or selected playlists. If you click selected playlists, select the playlists you want in the playlists category. For newer iPods you can check which artists are included on your iPod to automatically import all the songs from each selected artist onto your iPod

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 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.

Getting music directly off Ipod nano 2gig


When you plug the iPod into the computer, a window may or may not pop up, depending on what you told Windows to do with the player the first time you connected it. If the window does not pop up automatically, double-click My Computer, double-click the icon of the iPod, and you should see a folder that says Music. If this folder is missing, that may explain your symptoms. Right click a blank area of the Nano window, and select New --> Folder --> and create a folder named "Music". Try syncing again, and see if it works.

Adding music


You cannot go into "My Computer" and open up the Nano drive and just drag and drop files to it. Itunes formats the files with different names as it puts them on the ipod. There are however, other pieces of software to use to sync the ipod with the music you have. A few of the more popular iTunes alternatives are Floola, WinAmp, gtkpod, Banshee, RhythmBox and Amarok.Good Luck.
This is my first solution. Any thoughts?

Apple Ipod isnt recognized on computer


You can only sync one ipod with one computer so if you put music on it already it will only work with the original computer you synced it with. Same with ANY ipod.

IPod nano (3rd generation) not syncing


This is the advice I tell everyone.. Don't use the iTunes library!
There are times when you do need to use it, but 98% of everything you need to do can be done right on the iPod.

When you plug-in your iPod, you should see an icon for it appear in the left window pane. You can actually edit the song info, sort, categorize, or whatever right there.

The only thing you can't do is get iTunes to automatically download the artwork for you. But, to be honest, even when I do use the library to get my artwork, the artwork never "sticks" when I move it to the iPod, and I end up manually adding it every time.

I've had an iPod in some form for at least three years now. I've never had a problem editing directly on the iPod itself, and I don't miss the library one bit.

Hope this helps.
