Unable to transfer music from MacBook Pro iTunes to iPod iTunes

After syncing my iPod to my computer through iTunes, I have always had my music transfer over without any problems.  Yet this time, after trying to transfer all the songs from my computer to my iPod (which was just a single album), it did not work, meaning I couldn't locate the album anywhere in my iPod.  It might be because I downloaded the album on my iPhone, then synced it to my computer (which was successful), and that could be part of the problem, but I'm not sure. 

I figured it out! Here's what I did:
1. Hook up your iPod to your computer using an HDMI cable (the same way you would when syncing your music)
2. In your iTunes library, locate the album that you would like to transfer, then click on it.
3. When you see the black box open with all of the album's songs in it, you will also see a PLAY button, a SHUFFLE button, and an arrow in a circle button next to the title of the album. Click the arrow in the circle button (I don't know what else to call it)
4. Click ADD TO, then select the device you would like to add the album to, or the playlist you would like to add it to.
5. Your iTunes will then process the data (transfer the album) from your iTunes library to your iPod.
HOPE THIS HELPS TO ALL THOSE IN NEED!!!

    I have a new iphone 6. How do I transfer my music library from my MacBook Pro to my Iphone 6. I connected the Iphone6 to my computer and under file chose sync. That didn't do it. I recently updated to Yosemite.

    Open iTunes then login to your account and make sure the computer is authorized. Next go to the music tab and choose artists, songs or albums you want to sync. Click sync at the bottom of the page. At the top of the iTunes screen you should see the sync actions take place.

    how to transfer data from macbook pro to an external hard drive, im using (WD 1TB 3.0) ???. I cannot copy anything from my mac to it not a single file.

    ok - since you'll be sharing it with a PC - connect it to your windows pc - then format from there - instead of NTFS format - choose exFAT.
    or, you can read the link below on how to do it in dos mode.

    once you've formatted it - you can now use it in both your macbook and windows computer.

    For transferring videos you could use 'Video Transfer App'. I'm the developer of this universal application (iPhone/iPad) that let's you transfer videos from your iPad or computer directly to another iPhone or iPad.
    The app is currently in the Top 25 iPad apps in the photography category.
    Here are couple of videos that show how the app works:

  • What is the best way to transfer iPhoto from MacBook Pro to iMac?

    What is the best way to transfer iPhoto from MacBook Pro to iMac?

    the only way is Connect the two Macs together (network, firewire target mode, etc) and drag the iPhoto library intact as a single entity from the old Mac to the pictures folder of the new Mac - launch iPhoto on the new mac and it will open the library and convert it as needed and you will be ready move forward.
