Ipod unable to update songs and playlist.

I've updated all my software, itunes is the lastest and the same with my software on my ipod (its the 30G video ipod) and everytime i plug it in and try to update my music... this is what it says...
"Attempting to copy to disk "IPOD" failed. An unknown error has occured (-69)"
I'm rather confused to why this is happening, its not because i've filled up my ipod, i only have 8.3G of space on it right now. I am using Windows XP computer. If anyone can help me I would love to hear from you.

I finally figured out what the problem is after taking it to best buy 2 times and they had no idea what to do besides restore it... but when it says "attempting to copy to disk "ipod" failed. An unknow error has occured (69)" if the # 69 is there...that means there is a bad file thats not allowing it to update... so listen to all ur music n delete the corrupt songs. hopefully this helps some ppl... it helped me.

  • Cannot drag-and-drop songs and playlists

    I just got a new 2nd Gen Nano on Saturday. iTunes 7.0.1.8 updated the Nano to software 1.0.2. It will sync songs and playlists when connected to the computer. However, if I want to manually add songs/playlists, it won't let me. I cannot drag and drop from my library to my iPod. Also, all the songs are greyed out on my iPod list and it will not let me drag and drop within my iPod. They only way it will let me update songs and playlists is with the automatic option.
    What is going on?

    The songs are "greyed out" because you have the iPod set to transfer songs automatically. That is also why the padlock icon appears at the bottom of iTunes next to the space used/available.
    If you want the songs to be bold and selectable/editable, then you need to change to manually managing your songs.

  • What is manually manage songs and playlist?

    I had some issues earlier and it seems to be resolved now,but in the process it had me set the IPod to manually manage songs and playlist. I want to close ITunes now and go to bed but I don't know how to exit ITUnes without losig my music. I used to click sync IPod and put a check mark next to the song I wanted loaded to the Ipod and when it was over I would take the check mark off,but now what do I do?

    By default the iPod is set to "automatically manage songs and videos", whatever changes you make in iTunes are reflected on the iPod the next time you connect it. In manual mode you can directly access the content of the iPod and play it through iTunes and you can drag and drop whatever you want to the iPod from your library: Managing content manually on iPod
    Something to remember about using an iPod in manual mode is that the "Do Not Disconnect" message will remain on the display until you physically eject the device. In that case use the Safely Remove Hardware icon in the Windows system tray on the desktop and check this link for alternative methods:: Safely Disconnect IPod

    I have an iPod Touch which I've had for almost 4 years, with 32 GB of memory. I am unable to update it, and consequently cannot install any newer apps. I am very disappointed that I spent a lot of $$; now Apple wants me to spend $$ again to get a new one. As I mentioned, I am pretty upset. Does anyone know if there's a work around?

    I suspect you have a 2G iPod. Those can only go to iOS 4.2.1.

  • How to manually add songs and playlists to ipod with new version of itunes?

    So I didn't have any problem adding songs to my ipod nano manually until I updated itunes a few minutes ago, and found the settings completely different than previously.  I can no longer just drag songs and playlists to my ipod.  I have "manually manage music" and "enable disk use" selected.  I do not want to sync my whole library to it.  I have more songs in my library than can fit on my ipod.  And I already have my playlists set up how I want them.  Can someone help?  

    go to iphone, then on the page below click the Add To... icon on the top right.
    then its easiest to view them by songs. and then you can drag and drop from them and click Done when finished

  • Can I get all my songs and playlist to a Flash dirve to play in the car now the large iPod is no more?

    Hello, so I have read a few discussions on transferring songs/playlist to a flash drive. But what I am looking for is can I replace my iPod classic in my car with a flash drive? So I have all my songs and playlist just like the iPod. And how do I do this?
    I have a Ford with My Ford Touch, so it can find its own album art, but I do want the playlists. I have the same song in multiply playlist so I don't want to have multiply copies of the same song one the drive.
    It seems that most iPods classics are in use in the car these days so there must be some easy way to replace them with they no longer work.

    I doubt that "most iPods classics are in use in the car these days."  iPod classic uses a delicate hard drive for storage (instead of flash storage) plus it has other sensitive parts like the display and battery, so it is prone to damage from shock, heat, cold, etc.  The car environment is not so ideal for iPods (especially the ones with hard drives).  It's ideal for a USB flash drive.  They are now relatively cheap per GB.  They have no moving parts, or screen, or battery, so you can just leave it connected to the USB port most of the time; you don't have to constantly connect and disconnect it, which causes wear for an iPod.  Get something like this, and it barely sticks out from the USB port.

    You should be able to copy song files to a USB flash drive using iTunes, by showing a list of songs in iTunes, selecting songs on the list, and dragging the selection from the iTunes window to a Windows Explorer window that shows the USB flash drive.
    Depending on the car audio system, it may recognize folders on the USB flash drive as "playlists."  As a test, try putting some folders at the top level of the flash drive, with names to represent playlists.  Then, add a few song files to those folder, and try it on the car audio system.

  • My IPod no longer shuffles songs within playlists that are clearly set to shuffle.  It is about 3/4 full so I thought of maybe compressing the files to get more space.  Do you think that is the problem and if that might help?

    My IPod no longer shuffles songs within playlists that are clearly set to shuffle.  It is about 3/4 full so I thought of maybe compressing the files to get more space.  Do you think that is the problem and if that might help?

    Storage space on the iPod would not affect shuffled playlists or playlist shuffling, though substantially full iPods may wind up skipping songs on larger playlists after a while, and require a restart.  As for compressing the files themselves, you can automatically re-encode files to a lower bitrate by checking the box on the summary page when your iPod is connected to your PC/Mac.
    As for the shuffle problem, after restarting your iPod (hold the center button and Menu for a few seconds, until the Apple logo appears), make sure you're telling the iPod to shuffle the songs in a playlist by repeatedly clicking the center button until the Suffle Menu comes up, then scroll to the right to turn it on.  From that song forward, the playlists' contents should be shuffled every time the playlist ends, or is accessed from a new song.
    Shuffle does sometimes turn itself off, I've found, so double-check the setting is still on.  Also, iPods shuffle by randomly assigning a playlist order for your songs, which is different from traditional shuffle (on, say, iTunes or Windows Media Player, where the new song is determined at random upon the current track ending.  The iPod only chooses a random order of songs when you shuffle, to conserve battery life and queue up songs coming up on the playlist in the event of a shock).

  • My ipod is not recognized on a new computer after old one crashed.  I have painstakenly restored all songs and playlists.  I deautorized all, and the reauthorized new computer.  It won't sync.

    My ipod is now recognized on a new computer after old one crashed.  I installed itunes on the new computer, and have painstakenly restored all songs and playlists. I also purchased several new songs from the itunes stores.  Now my ipod will not sync with the new computer.  I deauthorized all computers, then reauthorozed the new one.  My ipod still won't sync.

    ...after running diagnostics through itunes, itunes says  "device not found"  Seems there are a lot of others having this problem,and it seems to be related to new version of itunes.  Apple should do something to fix this.

    how do i get itunes or any other program for ipod to play one song and then stop instead of contiuing playing. I need it to be in the same playlist and ready to play the next song when I press play?

    Good luck.  I tried to do this to cue sound effects for a theater, and never found anything.  iTunes will definitely *not* do this, nor was I able to find any player that would play one song at a time in a single playlist. 
    In my case, I ended up using AutoHotkey to tie individual tracks to the keys on an external keypad. This was an excellent solution for my problem, but I don't think AHK runs on Macs.
    One workaround is to make a folder, and fill it with *shortcuts* to the songs you want (ie, the actual files).  You can change the names to start with numbers to get them in the right order.  Then if you double-click on one it will play just that song.  You'll still have to double-click on each song.
    Might be a good time to learn AppleScript   It would  also be pretty easy to write a Java app to do this.

  • New songs and playlists won't sync to iPod since 8.0.2

    I have an 80gb iPod classic. I have made numerous failed attempts to sync new songs and playlists since downloading this latest 8.0.2 version of iTunes.
    When I plug in my iPod it shows up in iTunes, when I sync it iTunes shows a progress bar, then it tells me that the sync is complete and I disconnect my iPod when prompted. However, when I attempt to locate the song and/or playlist on my iPod, they are no where to be found, but I can still locate them on iTunes. I have roughly 10gb of files on the iPod, so I don't have any issues with available memory.
    +Somebody please help!!!+

  • How do transfer my songs AND playlists from iPOD classic to a NEW laptop

    How do you transfer both songs AND playlists from an iPOD to a new laptop? I have read a few posts about this, but none seem to talk about transfering the PLAYLISTS. I understand there is a manual method since the iPOD is essentially viewed as a hard drive by a windows based machine/PC and there are third party applications to provide a more automated process.
    So can playlists be transferred? If so how? Or will i need to recreate all my playlists? It is not the end of world, rather just tedious. Are there any "gotchas"?
    Thanx

    I also have a similar problem. Lap top crashed - new lap top have VISTA (I know...).
    Using my ipod as a external hard drive - I have loaded all the tunes onto a new folder on the desk top. I then loaded all the files into the itunes library and have upload them on the new itunes on the new lap top - all good. They are now on the new itunes library and my ipod
    However NONE of my purchased items have been transfered. Issue is that the files on the Desktop folder will not show which are purchesed and which are imported from CD - how do I find and then transfer my purchased songs...
    Thanks

    Not only this but I can't drag from Itunes and place anywhere on my desktop or onto an external drive. Apple, why are you screwing around with basic functions!? I'm a dj and I need to be able to manage my music files without you ruining my life! FIX THIS!

  • TS1373 I have a 1st generation Nano, and I have a sad iPod icon, and it seems like my battery won't charge either.  I guess it's too old.  Anyway if I buy a new iPod will I be able to transfer my songs and playlists to the new one easily?

    I have a older Nano, I think I got it in 2004 or 2005 and I have a sad iPod icon, and it seems like my battery won't charge, the low battery icon appears but never seems to do anything.  If I buy a new iPod will I be able to transfer my songs and playlists to the new one easily?  Thanks.

    If you are using automatic syncing to load the iPod, all songs on the iPod are in your iTunes music library.  So, you won't need to transfer anything from the old nano.  Just sync the new iPod from your iTunes library the same way.
    If you use the Manually manage music setting, AND there are songs on the iPod that are not in your iTunes music library, you will need to off-load songs to your computer first.  You cannot transfer song files from iPod to computer using iTunes (except for songs purchased from the iTunes Store).  However, there are third-party methods and utilities that can transfer from iPod to computer.  If you do a Google search on something like "ipod transfer" you should get some links.
    Also, if this is a 1st gen iPod nano, you can check this article to see if it applies to you
