ive got a 60gb ipod, it was a christmas present.

tonight i was bored so i played the music quiz for about 20 rounds. then i exited out of it, and the machine started going bonkos. i had/have 3000 or so songs stored on it, using around 11gb. what would come up would be a random shuffle of 100 songs, and the songs would skip after a few seconds to a random part of the next song. when i tried playing single albums, the same thing would happen with that album until it got to the end, then the random shuffle thing would happen again.

i plugged it into my computer hoping that would solve the problem of jumping around - turning it off by holding pause didnt.
much to my horror, when i disconnected, the machine had gone blank, with no songs optional.
i plugged it back in, itunes opened up and there was my IPOD and the library on it perfectly intact.

im able to play songs off the ipod via itunes, yet when i disconnect it, im told there is nothing on there.

itunes is telling me there are 2515 songs, using 11.31 gb.
the ipod settings screen is telling me 0 songs/movies, that the machines capacity is 55.6GB and that there is 49.0availible.


ive tried going back to the music quiz, but it is telling me there are no songs stored.

please?

IPOD mini problem
My musicmatch software recognized my IPOD but although it said that 3.7GB had been used, I could see none of my songs. I tried to update the software and now all I have is the flashing APPLE image and the computer is not recognizing my IPOD when I plug it into the USB so I cannot do a restore?...any ideas?

When the iPod is plugged into the computer, look at its prefferences and the tab "Photo". It is possible to update, replace the photoes with everything from the computer and thereby erase them on the iPod if they are gone from the computer. You can set it to only import the photoes you say each time. You can only set this when the iPod is connected. Apple only allows these preference changes when the iPod is connected. I wish they would change that! Hope this helps.

I just found out about limewire and I get my songs to my itunes or whatever but could someone please tell me how to get the songs actually on my ipod?

I also had a problem with audio. I know you have to convert the movie files into mp4 format, and i've heard that only videos in mpeg format work, but even the vids that i converted with itunes have no audio. if i download a converter, which i know there are tons of, will i still have this problem?

in other words, what is causing the videos to have no audio if formatting is not the problem?
 

needin help plz...
Unregistered guest
ive got the same problem sabrina has, only my the audio works on my ipod, no video plays, the ipod treats the video file as just another music file but it still comes up in the movies part of my ipods menu. by the way i use videora to convert my videos onto mp4. If someone can email me or add me on msn, that would be helpfull: c4_goes_boom@hotmail.co.uk

if you want to encode videos to mp4 format i highly recommend getting "river past crazi video for ipod"

www.riverpast.com/en/prod/crazivideo/ipod.php

-registration info (you're all talking about limewire so i assume this is ok, please buy if you like this program)

Email:www@speedown.info
Code:SDCTCCFE85WCTD6WCFDA8SSCC669S5AW5FFWWFCW



it converts pretty much every type of video out there and gives you the selection of changing the video/audio quality to lower the size but still keeps the picture and sound clear ive encoded tons of videos so far and have not had any problem.


to get your videos on your ipod i recommend this
1) plug in your ipod open up itunes
2)right click on your ipod at the side then click on ipod options
3)go to the music tab and check manually manage my ipod.
4)now go to the video tab and uncheck anything thats checked (nothing should be anyway but its good to make sure)your done with this so click ok
next highlight your ipod in the side bar and go up to file and add file to library then find the encoded video and add it.
5)now you have the video on your ipod so eject the ipod (after its done updating)and away you go
6)when watching the video turn off the backlight unless you want to recharge it again in 20 minutes , so stupid.

if you check the manual that came with your ipod it actually describes exactly how to do ecerything everyone asks.

if you really cant find it there open up itunes and in the toolbar click help
then click ipod help
then click open ipod features guide on my computer
or open ipod nano features guide on my computer.

Since then, I have lost my iPod disc but my sister has iTunes on her computer which came with her iShuffle. When i plug my iPod into her computer though, nothing happens.

I have a 4GB mini, these are like $200+ now that they are not sold. I wonder if I can take it to the Apple Store and trade it in for a nano. IS that possible? Or should I just sell it on Amazon then take that money towards the nano. Becasue my mini only cost me $100, I'd be making a profit.

No, they certainly will not exchange it for a Nano, but it would be best to sell it and have the money go towards one. I can't advise the best place to sell it, but it seems that you have the right idea.

James Tyler:

I am fairly sure you have to have the video saved to your computer before you can put it on your iPod.

As for question two, this is the procedure you'll have to use:
-first you must idtag ALL your music in ipod correctly make sure because it's going to matter
-enable the use as hard disc feature of your ipod
-go to "my computer" and click on your ipod
-now open the folder that reads "controls" and then open the folder "music"
-you now see a lot of folders named 'FY2' or something like that in these folders you will see about a dozen of audio/visual files
-these files have names like "R4T" etc
-create a folder in which you arrange everything on a detailed list, more specifically "artist" "album" "name" etc
-copy these music files from your ipod into this folder
-the name of the files in this folder are still strange but if you idtagged it right you should see the names, artist , albumtitles etc. appearing next to the "weird name"
-after you change the names to your liking you can "add the files" to your iTunes library

Good luck, it's a long and tiring process and probably not worth it.

See all I Know is that I went to the iTunes Music Store purchaed the Music Video and i still dont have it on my iTunes library. I have just purchased it that's all i Know, so it's just know that i am really frustrated that it's costing me money for nothing.

HELP!!! PLEASE!! I recently bought my wife an iPod Video, and she gave her iPod Nano to our son. I was attempting to get it up and running on his PC under Windows ME and installed the Trial version of Anapod Explorer. Before disconnecting it, I used the right-click and selected EJECT. However, after we disconnected the iPod was still flashing the "Do Not Disconnect" message. So, I attempted to RESET it using the "SELECT"-"MENU" combination... but now I have the Apple Logo on the screen, and the backlight flashing... and I can't get anywhere. I tried waiting for the battery to run down completely... then I plugged it back in and the Battery Icon came up to show me it was charging... then it went back to the Flashing Apple Logo... I can do a Reload because when I hook it back up to the computer, neither my Windows XP laptop, or my son's Windows ME desktop see it as being attached. Can anyone tell me how to get it "unstuck" ???

I read your story, and that exact problem you had happened to my iPod Video. I took it to a radio shack and they told if I had bought the insurance for the iPod. I told them yes and showed them the insurance card. They told me that i need to take it to the radioshack that i Bought it at and tell them the problem.
When I took it there and told them my problem. They gave me a completely New iPod Video.

If you do follow the instructions i Hope you get the same results. Peace Out

James,

Thanks, but I don't think that will work for me. We purchased it about 6 months ago from Amazon.Com. Furthermore, we live in a foreign country. I doubt I'll get an exchange out of them. I'm really hoping someone will be able to tell me how restore my iPod Nano to working order.

But its nice to know that I'm not the only one to experience this...

Thanks

David

You might need to call iTunes support to rectify that problem. Any number of errors could have occured for that to happen.

Hey, umm,

My brother wanted my songs on his ipod too, and at first it worked, i hooked it up once, and it was fine, cause he's at college, BUT, he came back, and i added more songs, and i hooked up his, then mine, and when it said it was done, i unhooked it, and tried to listen, and it had no songs on it. I tried hooking it up again, and it said something about, it doesn't recognize it, and i needed to update the software on it. Umm, i guess, how do i do that?

Loading Problems:

I just bought a new 30 g Video Ipod, since my 4 g nano was stepped on. After i add about 20 songs onto my ipod, something that says "Attempting to copy to this disk failed. An unknown error occurred (-69). If i delete that song, then the twenty-ish after it will load, before another defective song causes this error. anyone know what to do???

umm, there should be little boxes next to each song on the main library screen, you can try to click the ones you want when yours is about to be hooked up and vice versa, or you can do what my brother and i do, and make different play lists with her songs and your songs on it

uhh, jason,

do you have a wall charger? or car adapter or something? what you may need to do is try to fully charge your ipod with something besides the computer, like a wall charger, car charger, dock, etc. if not, you may need to update itunes (itunes.com then try to re-download it -should be free)

Jason, the hard drive went bad, the clicking sound signifies it. I have the exact iPod with the exact problem. You can check ebay for a replacement hard drive or even sell it there. You'll get around 30-70$ as it is.

Think of it this way: Does a PS2 CD play in the XBOX? No, they're completely different formats. The same applies to Mac and Windows.

Fortunately, you can reformat the iPod so it will work with Windows OS.

AHHH!! My ipod fell in the bath tub yesterday because I stupidly tried to listen to it. I quickly took it out and blew through the ipod headphones hole and the usb hole to get the water out. And then I took it apart and unplugged and plugged in the battery. Now it turns on showing the dim apple icon then shows the "sad" ipod icon and then turns off. It does this everytime. HELP!! Is there anything I can do!! Please respond!!

Open iTunes but DO NOT connect your iPod.
Go through the list of songs in your library and look to the left.

Notice the checkmarks next to the songs?
Uncheck those songs that you don't want on your iPod and leave check marks that you want to keep on the iPod.

Once that is done, connect your iPod and wait until it updates. Do not use delete or you may accidentally remove the song permanently out of your library.

I'm wondering if it's ok to disconnect to ipod from the computer even when itunes dosen't say it is...you see, i have a nano that i update..and after it's done updating it says "Update is complete, It's OK to Disconnect". Now, I also have a ipod video that i connect...but when it's done updating it says "update is complete", it never tells me it's OK to disconnect...and the message "DO NOT Disconnect" stays on my ipod screen. I disconnect anyways.. Is this bad for my ipod and/or computer?

Use the ejcet function on the iTunes to disconnect your iPod. Continually doing so may cause some problems later on.

Hi, I've got the second generatin iPod, the one with the touch wheel. Whenever I press any buttons on it, the apple logo appears on the screen, and then a strange icon appears after that. The icon is the end of the cable that goes into the bottom of the iPod with an arrow. I've tried everything and nothing works. After this strange icon appears, the screen goes blank. Does anyone know what is going on and what I have to do to make my iPod work?

Thank you.
