Linkstation showing up as IPod!

Hi,
I have all my music stored on a Buffalo Linkstation NAS, and for some reason this shows up as my ipod when I plug the Ipod in!
The info on itunes 7 correctly shows my ipods serial number, but the name 'share' comes up (that is what the linkstation is called). It also shows up the capacity as 300Gb!
How do i get itunes to see my ipod?
Many thanks,
Tom

Have you tried performing a RESTORE on the iPod when connected to iTunes?

  • My classic video ipod won't switch back to regular video mode after using it on an elliptical. The port still allows me to charge and works on the elliptical and treadmill but it will no longer change modes to allow me to watch my shows on the ipod screen

    From the iPod's Main Menu choose Videos -> Settings and make sure TV Out is set to Off.
    Otherwise, try a hard reset as well.  To do this, press and hold both the Select (Center) and Menu buttons together long enough for the Apple logo to appear.

  • I have TV shows on my iPod but I can't get them on to my iTunes

    HELP ME

    Hi oliverfromkings hill,
    Thanks for visiting Apple Support Communities.
    It sounds like you may have purchased TV shows on an iPod touch, and want to transfer them to the iTunes library on your Mac.
    You can use the steps in this article to transfer purchases from your iPod to your computer:

  • HT5552 How can I use an iTunes gift card to buy tv shows on my iPod touch?

    Or do I need to buy the tv shows on a computer, with an iTunes gift card?
    Is it possible to buy the shows on my iPod touch?
    Thank you.

    If you've redeemed the card into your account then you should be able to buy items where you use that account - so your iPod or computer's iTunes

    TV programmes can't be redownloaded in all countries (and even where they can be there is no guarantee that they will remain in a country's store for future redownloading) so it may be easier to do it on your computer's iTunes and then sync them (and so that you can take a backup)

  • Movies and TV Shows Missing form iPod menu -- what's up with that?

    I purchased my fist movie and TV episode last night to see how well I will like them on my iPod classic. I am connecting to the most up to date version of iTunes on my IBM/Win XP computer.
    I watched the episode (Journeyman's first episode -- missed it on Monday...it's not bad) and was pleased. Then watched Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy -- also enjoyable even at the small size (especially the opening sequence which emulates "home movie" style in a very small frame).
    Near the end of the movie, my iPod battery was giving up the ghost, so I paused the movie and plugged in. After waiting out the "Do not disconnect..." syncing process the main menu finally appeared on the iPod -- but the Movie and TV Shows selections were conspicuously missing from the menu! I have not seen my Movie/TV episode since.
    They are in the iTunes library, obviously, but they simply never show up in the iPod menu. So far I have sync'd a number of times -- the sync settings were originally set by default to sync all songs, podcasts, TV Shows, Movies, Songs, etc... I tried "tweaking" these but to no avail. All syncs result in no Movie or TV Shows on the iPod menu.
    Most recently I tried deleting all material from the iPod and then re-syncing all material back to the iPod (no help) and lastly I tried resetting to factory default settings (which originally seemed to work just fine) still to no avail.
    When I select Settings >> Main Menu ... from the iPod main menu, the configuration screen also does not contain options for Movies or TV Shows.
    It all makes me say "Hmmmm...." and leaves me reluctant to waste money on video media (though thank god my Tiki TV podcasts are still coming through just fine ... no Lala? I don't think so!). Nope, check that! video podcasts are not coming through either. GEEZE!
    Has anyone experienced this before? Again, I've updated all iPod and iTunes software. Nothing "funky" seemed to happen to cause the problem, other than it conincided with plugging my iPod in (which kicks off the blasted sync process -- geeze these settings are a pain...I'd prefer the blasted thing to just sync on demand) >:-( Any help/suggestions would be most appreciated. Without a solution, I'll never be able to keep up with Journeyman!
    Thanks

    I can't remember exactly what I did. I do know that when I started it up, I couldn't find the Setup Assistant on the hard drive,
    No, once a user has been created, you can't run Setup Assistant  (without erasing and reinstalling).
    What do you recommend for fixing this?
    Here's what's happened: 
    When you first start up a Mac and create the first user account, OSX assigns it UID (User ID) #501.  The next one gets #502, etc.  Those UIDs (not the user name) are what control permission to files.
    You can see those numbers via System Prefs > Users & Groups;  click the padlock and enter your Admin password, then select an account and right-click it, and select Advanced Options.  Do not change anything on that window.
    So . . . assume your old iMac had a user 501 with the data you want; it's identified that way on the backups.
    When the Apple Store started up your new Mac, and created their account, it became #501.
    When you used Migration Assistant to transfer the 501 account from the iMac's backups, OSX copied everything there "as is" except it had to change the 501 to 502. 
    The new 502 account has all the right permissions to things now in it's home folder, but the backups belong to user 501.
    Have you added much to the Mac since you did the migration?  Have you done any new backups?  If not, while it's a bit of a hassle, one fix would be to create yet another user account temporarily.  Make it an Admin account.  Log on to it and delete all the other accounts.  Then migrate the accounts from your backups; this time there won't be a conflict, so OSX won't have to change the UUID(s).
    But if you have done new backups, this won't work, since Migration Assistant automatically uses the most recent backup.  There's a way around that, but it's a bit (or more) tedious.

  • TS2581 Not all of my Playlists show on my iPod after sync

    After I sync my iPod, there are a number of playlists that do not show on my iPod.  There are no strange characters, just letters in the names.  Anyone have an idea what is going on or how I can get the playlists to sync to iPod?  This is a fairly recent occurance.  Maybe because of an iTunes update???

    Plug your iPod into your PC and select it from under the Devices section in the left hand pane of iTunes.   Now locate the Music tab along the top and select that.  Under this tab, is your iPod configured to sync all of your playlists?

  • Some song genres that no longer exist are still showing on my iPod

    I had some inconsistencies the name of a genre so I changed it. After changing and syncing it to my ipod, the misspelled genre is still there, but when I click on it, it shows the results of the correctly spelled genre.
    It's an error that only shows on my ipod, not itunes. How can I fix?

    My guess is that the inconsistancy still occurs in another song, particularly if the inconsistancy is capitalisation.
    In iTunes, when you look at that genre, you see only one version, but if you look very carefully, do you see the incorrect version on any song in it? (If the issue is a "space" after the last letter of the genre, it will be very difficult to spot.) Copy the correct version of the genre that you want to use and paste it into every song in the genre. Then Sync the iPod to your Library.
    Does that fix it?

  • My ipod 4th gen gets wiped clean of music anytime I sync. it then only redownloads some of the music in the library and wont upload missing songs.  They show on the ipod grayed out. How do I get this to stop? re-uploading takes 4 hours.

    my ipod 4th gen gets wiped clean of music anytime I sync. it then only redownloads some of the music in the library and wont upload missing songs.  They show on the ipod grayed out. How do I get this to stop? re-uploading takes 4 hours and is never completed.  I only get some of the 6000+ songs I have. This started when I updated to IOS5 i think.

    Try:
    - Reset the iOS device. Nothing will be lost
    Reset iOS device: Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at
    least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
    - Unsync all music and resync
    - Reset all settings
    Go to Settings > General > Reset and tap Reset All Settings.
    All your preferences and settings are reset. Information (such as contacts and calendars) and media (such as songs and videos) aren’t affected.
    - Restore from backup. See:                                 
    iOS: How to back up           
    - Restore to factory settings/new iOS device.

  • If I buy a tv show from my ipod and sync it to my library will it stay in the libary, even if I delete it.

    If I buy a tv show from my ipod and sync it to the itunes library will it stay in the library, even if I delete it from my ipod. I just want to make sure I am not totally deleteing it and lose my money.

    Deleting it from the Pod after copying it to the coputer will not dlelte it from your ligrary.

  • How do i put a tv show on my ipod?

    I'm trying to put a tv show on my Ipod Nano (3rd Generation) and i won't sync to it? How do you do it?

    Hello Lisa,
    Double check your iPod's sync settings from under it's TV Shows tab in iTunes.  Make sure it is not set up to sync only unwatched episodes.

  • Why the albuns artcover won´t show in the iPod?

    I have tried everything already, from unistalling iTunes (twice) to looking over all the manuals and check boxes in iTunes, and yet, some of the album artcovers don´t show in the iPod after sycing checked musics. The weird thing is that it has happened out of the blue, once it was everything ok before. I have this new iPod Touch for over 2 months now and it´s very fustrating not to have the artcover in it since I spent a lot of time and patiance adding all the right artcovers to the albuns.

    I am not that knowledgeable on ID but to start the discussion I would suggest you post where you are trying to view your PDF.  If you are viewing in Acrobat or Adobe Reader on a Desktop Client then there might be a problem.  But if you are trying to view on an iOS or Android device (or other mobile device) then that is the main cause as to why you can't view multimedia things and have interactivity.
