  • How can I use my iPod on a PC without losing everything???!!!

    I got a new PC and put iTunes in and everything but when I try to put my iPod in it's telling me that I have to restart it!!! But I can't do that cause all the songs on it are from another computer!!! I went into a computer store and the man working there said there is someway of doing it but he can't rememder how he did it to his own one... He said you either press Yes or No.
    Help!!! Anyone know???? I don't want to lose everything...
    Its so stupit that Apple made them that way.

    If you are using your iPod with a Windows system (particularly the former computer), you'll have more luck asking this question in the iTunes for Windows area or the Connecting iPod to Windows forum.
    Meanwhile, perhaps this will help:

  • How can I use my iPod as source for reinstalled iTunes?

    Hello @ all.
    Unfortunately I had to completely reinstall my system (WinXP Pro PC) and lost my media library!
    How can I use my iPod as a source to copy all my songs and settings (incl. covers, aso) to iTunes?
    iPod: 30GBs Video iPod
    iTunes Version: 7.0.2.16
    can u guys help me with that?
    Thanks very much!

    The transfer of purchased content to authorised computers has been introduced with iTunes 7. A paragraph on it has been added to this article: Transfer iTunes Store purchases using iPod
    The transfer of non iTMS content is designed by default to be one way from iTunes to iPod. However there is a manual method of accessing the iPod's hard drive and copying songs back to iTunes on Windows posted in this thread: MacMuse - iPod to iTunes
    If you prefer something more automated then there are a number of third party utilities that you can use to retrieve the music files and playlists from your iPod, this is just a selection. Have a look at the web pages and documentation for these, they are generally quite straightforward. You can read reviews of some of them here: Wired News - Rescue Your Stranded Tunes
    YamiPod Mac and Windows Versions
    iGadget Windows Only
    iPodCopy Mac and Windows Versions
    iPod Access Mac and Windows Versions
    PodUtil Mac and Windows Versions

    PodPlayer Windows Only

    If your iPod is set to update automatically take care when connecting back to your computer and an empty iTunes. You will get a message that your iPod is linked to a different library and asking if you want to link to this one and replace all your songs etc, press "Cancel". Pressing "Erase and Sync" will irretrievably remove all songs from your iPod. Your iPod should appear in the iTunes source list from where you can change the update setting to manual and use your iPod without the risk of accidentally erasing it. Check the "manually manage music and videos" box in Summary then press the Apply button. Don't uncheck Sync Music it will be unchecked by default when you choose the manual setting: Managing content manually on iPod
    Whichever of these retrieval methods you choose, keep your iPod in manual mode until you have reloaded your iTunes and you are happy with your playlists etc then it will be safe to return it auto-sync again. I would also advise that you get yourself an external hard drive and back your stuff up in case you have problems again. External drives are comparatively inexpensive these days and you can get loads of storage for a reasonable outlay.

  • How can i use my ipod mac address to find it?

    simply put, i left my ipod at work. they missplaced it, now i need to locate it... p.s. its only a 3rd gen 32 gig so its not ios 7 campatible ,icloud only works if you have the device and download cloud on to it(and icloud is turned on).....not looking for opinions just looking for options such as: how can i use my ipod mac address to find it?       i do have the mac address

    You cannot.
    If you did not set up find my pod on the iPod itself, then it cannot be tracked.
    Sorry

  • How can I use my iPod nano on more than one computer?

    How can I use my iPod nano on more than one computer?

    Hi, China6450.
    Thank you for visiting Apple Support Communities.
    I would recommend setting up Manually manage music.  This will only allow music to be synced from the computer to the iPod nano.  Here are some helpful articles that will walk you through the process.

    My pc crashed and i no longer have the music i used to have, how can i sync my ipod  w/ out loosing  all of my  music.  and also how do i update  my ipod only has  a partial version of ios4

    It has always been very basic to always maintain a backup copy of your computer for this very occasion.  USe your backup copy to put everything on the new computer, then sync.

  • Can I use 1 iPod on 2 computers if 1 is a Mac and the other is a PC?

    I am a Mac user primarily and I use my iPod with iTunes on my Mac most of the time. Every so often I want to connect my iPod to my PC but after installing the software that came with the iPod and then connecting it to the PC it tells me that I need to format the iPod for Windows.
    So the bottom line question is....how can I use the iPod on both and be able to go back and forth without complications?

    Here's a link that will give you some of the information you need. The most important thing when switching between OS is that the iPod will have to be formatted for Windows. A Mac can handle a Windows formatted iPod, a PC can't handle a Mac formatted iPod. Hope this helps.

  • I have an Apple MacBook Pro with 2 USB ports and a MiniDisplay Port. I also have an HDTV with a HDMI port. How can I use the TV as a display without any tethering wires between my computer and the TV?

    I have an Apple MacBook Pro with 2 USB ports and a MiniDisplay Port. I also have an HDTV with a HDMI port. How can I use the TV as a display without any tethering wires between my computer and the TV? I have a MiniDisplay Port to VGA adapter, but there are two issues with it: The new display doesn't have a VGA port, and even if it did, I wouldn't want to have my mac constantly attached to the display by a cable. I was looking for a way to use the TV as a display without any wires. Is there some type of bluetooth setup I could use? Please let me know if you have any suggestions.

    As I wrote above, I think you should look into the Apple TV yourself. The best place to find information about what it can and can't do and to ask your own specific questions is probably in the Apple TV forum, here:

    How do I use my ipod in the car without it constantly charging?  I have to use a docking cable into the USB port because the 3.5mm to 3.5mm jack I bought doesn't work with the ipod (although it does work with an MP3 player).  My ipod is a 5th generation 80GB classic.

    I know this is old - but did you ever get this working. Thinking of getting a 780 ti card and I have an older mac with the mini-displayport too.
