How do I find an audio file that I put on an iPod from a non-iTunes software?

I'm talking about on the iPod itself, not looking at the folders when it is connected to the computer.
I've put some audio files, podcasts and songs, that transfered from a non-iTunes podcast aggregator and songs that weren't in my iTunes library, but could not find them on the actual iPod device.  This, despite the files showing up on the device when looking at a list of files on computer screen once I connect to a computer.
Asked this a few times now, and never got an answer.  Does anyone know what I am doing wrong here?

- Only iTunes purchases will copy from iPod to computer.
- If you sync manually and do not specify those modified songs to sync they will not sync to the iPod nor will the original version be deleted from the iPod
- If you sync automatically and include those songs or select the modified songs to sync manually, the songs in the iPod should be replaced with the modified songs. However sometimes that does not happen

  • How to listen to an audio file (that's not a podcast) in this app

    I have some foreign language learning audio files that I'd like to use the "back 15" button feature of this app. They're not part of a podcast. I haven't found another app that does has this "back 15 seconds" feature, so I'd like to play these files using the iOS Podcast App.
    I found a thread that said to use iTunes to change "media kind" of an mp3 to "podcast", but my drop-down just has "music", and following others suggestions to hold "shift" when pressing "Get Info" didn't change that to include other options unfortunately. It was also suggested in old posts that in this case the file permissions may be read only, but that's not the case with my file.
    Looking for how to play my files in Podcast App, or info on another app that has the "back 15" feature. Thanks!

    Duh... found my error... I was attempting to access the data by referencing the created "root" element.  Since <test> is the very first element tag, it's setup as the root element, which you don't need to reference.  Changing the alert to alert(xml.data); fixed it.
    Now I just feel dumb, lol...

  • If I edit an audio file that is already on my ipod in the itune library will it change the file on the ipod or will the file on the ipod overwrite the file in itunes?

    I have some audio files that could be edited to remove portions I don't need.  They were lectures that has some portions which I like to remove.  If I edit the file in the itunes library will it be able to sense that with even the same name the file has changed and update my ipod, ipad an so forth?  Or will the files on the devices be moved back and overwrite the newer version?  Or perhaps will  I need to do all of this by hand?  Thanks

  • How to export comps as audio files that start at beginning of song?

    Hi all
    I'm a failry casual Logic user, looking for some insights from you experts out there! 
    Right now I'm helping out on an album project which involves me laying down various parts in a different location to the main project.  Basically I'm getting rough mixes of the songs which I'm importing into my own Logic 8 project as single stereo files.  Then I'm recording my various bits so that I can later send back individual wavs of each track I've recorded.
    I've recorded various takes and made a few comps that I want to use for my file export.  However, I haven't always started recording at the very beginning of the song, hence my audio regions don't start at the same point.  I want to give the producer files that can be pulled into the main project with the exact same starting point.
    I've tried poking around in the menus and the user guide to figure out how to do this, but without much success.  I've tried "flatten and merge" on my comps, and have then tried drawing some "blank" regions to fill in the space back to the song starting point.  I thought I could then glue them together and export as one audio file, but it's not working.
    Before I get myself too tied up in knots, can anyone recommend a "right" way to do this?
    Thanks a lot!

    Thanks!  I'll try that third option and see if it works for us.
    I'd still like to solve this via option 1 anyway, as it could be useful in other applications (ie when collaborating with systems that don't support the timestamp feature).
    The problem is that if I use the pencil tool to draw an empty region, it won't let me glue it to the existing recorded region.  I get the error "Folders and Regions or Aliases cannot be merged." 
    Also, if I double-click the new region it opens in the piano roll rather than the sample editor, which seems bizarre.  Surely you can't combine MIDI and audio regions on the same track??  This could be a clue as to why it won't let me glue these regions together though. 
    Note that in the file I'm currently trying this with, I've flattened and merged my takes, having chosen the one I want to keep.  So, I no longer have the take folders visible (and actually, I don't know how I'd get them back if I wanted to, but I guess that's a different question entirely).  My point being that Folders aren't in use here, despite what the error message says.

  • How do I embed an audio file that plays through the entire book?

    I would like my students to listen to a story as they read it. Is there a way to embed the audio file and have it play through the entire book? I successfully embedded the audio file, but it stopped playing when I turned the page.

    Audio is user controlled on a page-by-page basis in an iBA'd iBook.

  • I have an iphone 4S and I'm trying to find an audio file that was texted to me 10 months ago. Every time I try to "Load Earlier Messages", I can only get a few months deep before the Messages App crashes and I have to start from scratch. Any help?

    Thank you all for any assistance.

    You're welcome.  Do you have a backup that was done just after that text was sent?
    There are some 3rd party programs that can extract your messages.  Here are two that may work...

  • How can I find an ID file that contains a text...?

    I've been working with InDesign for a long time. So, I have a lot of .indd files, from version 1 up to CS3.
    I need to find a file(s) that contains a specific text. E.g. the name of a person, that I'm sure is somewhere in my thousands of ID files.
    It's impossible to open all the files until I locate that text.
    In Windows Explorer, there's a way to search a word or phrase in a file, but it only returns doc, txt, rft, and other text files, even pdf. But not indd.
    Can somebody help me, please?
    Thanks,
    Hirao

    Have you tried changing the extension on your .indd files to .txt? It's
    a binary format, but there's a lot of plain text in there. The name
    you're looking for, or part of it, is probably in there somewhere.
    Search for the shortest possible text string. Some words are not continuous.

  • How do I find Ibook audio files on Mac?

    An Ibook that i downloaded includes audio, i would like to be able to listen to the audio on my ipod instead of an ibook. Is it possible to transfer the files to itunes?

    The only two folders that show up are one called "Microsoft user data" and the other is RDC connections. Where do I go from there, I tried clicking into them but still was unable to locate any documents. I also cannot locate any of my music or pics. Forgive me, as I am a Mac noob.

  • How do I find my project files that I worked on in Trial Version 11

    Dear Assistance,
    A few months ago, I downloaded version 11 trial and made a few projects.
    Yesterday, after taking some time away from these projects, I tried to open them and could not.
    I was told I needed to purchase the product, as my trial version had expired.
    Thus, I purchased the product, but apparently version 11 (my trial version) was replaced with version 12.
    I still cannot find my projects that I made with the trial version.
    Can anyone kindly give me some assistance?
    Thank you very much in advance,
    Ben

    Hi Wadeen,
    The projects are stored on your hard drive, premiere elements does not store the projects.
    If you are using a windows based machine the default location where the projects are saved is
    C:\Users\Username\MyDocuments\Adobe\Premiere Elements\11.0
    or if you remember the project names you can manually search them.
    Thanks

  • How do I find in my iPad, photos I put 'in the cloud' from my iMac ?

    I have put a photo album 'in the cloud' on my iMac but cannot seem to find this album anywhere on my iPad . I believe I have turned on in my iPad's iPhoto settings, everything that needs to be turned on.  Thank You in advance ,  David.

    You turn iCloud Photo Library on in Settings > iCloud > Photos. However it doesn't "empty" the pictures to the cloud. The most you can do to free up space using iCloud is to turn on Optimize Storage to keep a smaller device-sized version of the photos on your iPad. See the quote below from iCloud Photo Library FAQ - Apple Support
    Can I use iCloud Photo Library to save space on my device?
    iCloud Photo Library automatically keeps all your photos and videos in the original, high-resolution version. Follow these steps to choose how you store your photos and videos on your device:
    In iOS, tap Settings > iCloud > Photos or Settings > Photos & Camera, then select a storage setting.
    In OS X, click Photos > Preferences > iCloud, then select a storage setting.
    If you turn on Optimize [device] Storage, iCloud Photo Library will automatically manage the size of your library on your device, so you can make the most of your device's storage and access more photos than ever. All of your original, full-resolution photos and videos are stored in iCloud while device-size versions are kept on your device. You can download the original photos and videos over Wi-Fi or cellular when you need them.
    If you turn on Download Originals, iCloud Photo Library will keep your original, full-resolution photos and videos in iCloud and on your device. Download Originals is the default setting for iOS devices with the free 5 GB storage plan and for all Mac devices.

    Connect the iOS device to your computer and restore via iTunes. Place the iPod in Recovery Mode if necessary to allow the restore.
    If recovery mode does not work try DFU mode.

    For how to restore:
    iTunes: Backing up, updating, and restoring iOS software
    To restore from backup see:
    iOS: How to back up
    If you restore from iCloud backup the apps will be automatically downloaded. If you restore from iTunes backup the apps and music have to be in the iTunes library since synced media like apps and music are not included in the iPod backup that iTunes makes.
    You can redownload iTuns purchases by:

  • Viewing audio files that are syncing

    How do I view a list of the audio files that are syncing to my ipod during the sync process. Until I downloaded 7 I could see the files that were syncing and they had a mark next to them but I have not figured out how to view the files in my music list that are marked for syncing.
