Some music will not transfer from itunes to ipod

I noticed the other day that one album consisting of 5 songs that's in ITunes is not on my IPod Nano.. These are the only songs that I'm aware of.The songs play on Itunes, the box next to the songs is checked and syncing does nothing. They were on there at one time.
Thanks,
Rich

Locate these tracks in iTunes, right->click on them and choose Get Info from the menu.  When the window comes up, head over to Info tab and make sure there is no tick mark next to "part of a compilation."  Then if necessary sync the updated changes to your iPod.
You can see how your iPod is cnofigured to sync your music from under its Music configuration tab in iTunes.

  • When I add music from my CD onto my Macbook, the music will not transfer from iTunes on my Mac to my iPhone/iPad.  I'm using iCloud, current software updates and Music Match. Any solutions?

  • All songs selected will not transfer from iTunes to iPod

    Previously my iTunes transferred accurately to my iPod. My most recent additions to my library are a couple of audio books. Now, one of my music CDs will not transfer to my iPod and only the first 6 chapters of one of my books will transfer. The rest of the book won't transfer. I've tried unchecking items then updating iPod. Then re-checking the items and attempting to transfer. These items still won't transfer.

    My ipod will not sync fom library to ipod.  The sync option is not hilighted.  What do I do now?

    Was the iPod previous synced to another iTunes library/computer?
    Have you successfully synced from this iTunes library/computer before?
    Do the songs play in iTunes?
    Do you have the right boxes checked to sync?

    Do you have any Restrictions (Settings>General>Restrictions) set that would prevent syncing those songs?

  • I have one song that will not transfer from iTunes to iPod Touch

    I have one song that at one time was on my iPod. I have since bought another version of the song and since then the newer purchase of the song is on the iPod but the first one I bought is in iTunes but is not on my iPod any longer. I have tried to transfer it several times but it just won't transfer to my iPod. What could be the problem?

    I read a post about something like this. I forget the details, but my advice is to rename the original song's track Name to something like "song (original)" and see if it will sync.
    You can always change it back if this doesn't work.

  • Music will not transfer from Mac (OSX 10.9.3) to iPhone via cloud

    Music will not transfer from my Mac (OSX 10.9.3) to my iPhone except for music purchased through iTunes. Hard sync doesn't seems to work as I use iCloud. Suggestions?

    Only music purchased from the iTunes store is available to download from iCloud unless you subscribe to iTunes Match.  Also, you can sync music using iTunes on you Mac even if you are using iCloud for syncing your contacts, calendars and other data.

  • Some music will not transfer

    I upgraded  from 4s to 5s. For backup and restore I used itunes on a new mac that I had never synced my 4s to before. There are songs on my 4s that will not transfer to the mac and therefore not to my 5s. Some of these are songs that had ripped from a CD on to an old computer then transferred over to my 4s if that makes a difference. How do I get those songs off my 4s and onto my 5s???

  • Music will not play from iTunes during a slideshow that is run from flickr. ATV says turn on homesharing...it already is on!  HELP!!!!

    Music will not play during a slideshow launched from Flickr.  After choosing music and starting slideshow, the screen says "loading" and it never stops.  Under the computers section it says, turn on home sharing in iTunes on the computer with the music library.  It is on but apple tv wont recognize it.  I've signed out and signed back in over and over and home sharing is on but music wont play.  Is this a bug with flickr?  Music will play when i launch a slideshow from the iPad but it doesnt have as many cool options for slideshows as flickr does.  I want the flickr slideshow to play with music!!!  Grrrrrrrr!!!!!  Can anyone help???   

    ok, major miracle.  it is now working.  here is how i fixed it, and it was a stroke of luck to even find this.  opened iTunes, went to edit, then to preferences.  box pops up, went to the sharing icon and clicked share my local library on my local network.  then scrolled down and checked all the boxes that were applicable.  for the heck of it i went through all the other headings to see what else might be hiding from me.  i never thought this would do anything but went to ATV, selected flickr, chose some music and wa-la....its playing.  also, under the computers heading, it still does not show my iTunes library but clearly its there someplace.  oh well, it works...i'm happy!  your reply inspired me to keep working so thank you for that! 

  • My music will not copy from itunes in my pc to my iphone 4

    I can see it in my Itunes library but when I try to drag it to the music subfolder under my devices it will not allow it! Please help!

    Are you set to manual or do you have syncing setup? If it's the latter then you don't drag. You have to select iPhone under devices, go to the music tab and click what you want to sync, then Click on the apply button

  • 10 songs will not copy from iTunes to iPod.

    I have been having a problem when syncing my iPod. At the end of the sync, a dialog box appears, saying 'some of the items in the iTunes library, including "song name", were not be copied to the iPod "iPod name" because they could not be found". In total there are 10 songs that I can not copy to my iPod, they were all purchases off Amazon Music, as I had a voucher for the site at that time. When I initially purchased the songs, they were copied to my iPod without a problem, it is only recently when syncing my iPod that this has occured. If anyone could explain to me how to fix this problem, I would be extremely grateful, thank you in advance!

    Hi, zoed0775.
    Thank you for using Apple Support Communities.
    If an exclamation mark next to iTunes media in your library means that either the media is missing from the computer or iTunes is not directed to where the media is located.  Here is an article that will help you locate the missing media.  I have also included a list of icons in iTunes 11 as it will direct you to the best course of action.

  • App's will not go from itunes to ipod!

    This is really frustrating me, and I hope someone can help. I recently got a new computer, and I decided that I wanted to put apps onto my itouch. So to do so i restored my ipod and synced my ipod to the new itunes. I downloaded apps from the store and they appeared on my itunes. But when I tried to drag and drop them into my ipod as I would with music...they won't. Ive authorized the computer and everything.
    Please help!!! Thanks.

    even that will not do anything to your content - neither in iTunes nor on your device.
    provided you are well backed up (as you always should), you have the means of reverting to any previous state of affairs. the motto should be: back up, back up and ... did i mention to back up ?

  • Need help - Songs do not transfer from ITunes to IPod

    I recently upgraded to ITunes 7.2 and although I have acquired new songs in ITunes when I connect my IPod it quickly says IPod update is complete but my new songs do not show up on the IPod.
    I'd rather not start from scratch by doing a restore or some other similar procedure.
    Can anyone offer assistance here? Thanks!

    Are you basing the few that don't get sent to your ipod on the file count? Could there be duplicates? I've noticed that there are some of my movies that don't get sent over but I usually get a warning that they aren't in a compatable format.
    There is an option in either file or edit (can't remember exactly where, I'm at work) but you can filter to show all the duplicates. I've noticed that when I drag files over to be copied to my ipod and there are duplicates, it only does one.
    After you find the culprits, another thing would be to export the file to your desktop. Delete it from iTunes then reimport it making sure of the file format.

  • Some songs do not copy from iTunes to iPod

    This is very frustrating. I have a 5th Generation 60gig iPod. There are about 20,300 songs in my library, none of them from the iTunes store. All legal, all owned by me and I have the CDs to prove it. When I update the iPod all but about 4 or 5 songs copy over. The frustrating thing is there's no way to find out which songs are not copying over to the iPod, so I can't tell if there's a problem with them or what. AppleCare tells me the only way to find out is to visually compare the list on the iPod with the list in iTunes. I have 20,000 songs here and allegedly one of the most powerful computers you can get and I have to compare two nearly identical lists visually?? Oh, by the way I'm running 10.4.6 and the latest version of iTunes and the latest iPod update. This never happened with my 4th Generation iPod. Any thoughts at all of what to do would certainly be appreciated.
