    itunes wont see the music on ipod classic

    If you can see the songs but they are "greyed out" it's 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 manage the content manually.

  • MacBook/iTunes not 'seeing' iPod

    I haven't updated my iPod for a while, certainly not since the last couple of iTunes updates. However, today I opened iTunes, connected my iPod nano and it is not being seen by my MacBook.
    I've tried closing and reopening iTunes whilst keeping the iPod connected and I rebooted the MacBook with the iPod connected. It still doesn't see it.
    Anyone got any ideas?

    Thanks for responding.
    I've solved the problem by simply resetting my iPod.

  • Itunes wont recognise ipod and ipod not playing!!

    My ipod is being recognised in windows but not in itunes. When i connect it a message pops up to say that problems have occured and to scan and fix them but when i do it says no problems were found yet it still doesn't pop up in the sources in itunes. My Ipod also wont play. It appears to be playing but status bar doesn't move and there is no sound. Iv tried resetting, reinstalling and updating but no luck. Also tried restoring in disk mode but it wont let me do that either. Apple told me to try a different usb cable and a different computer but nothing has worked.. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!! Please help!!

    mine is also not being recognised by itune i am investigatingbthe screen resolution on the setup pageon i tunes which does not fit screen and has no enter button to initiate

  • Powerbook G4 wont see ipod!

    Uhhhhg I just connected my ipod to my friend's macbook yesterday and put pictures on it through sync. He is running Leopard and I connected to his computer with usb. Now i go home and try to put the pics back on my Powerbook G4. I am running OS 10.4.11 and connecting through firewire....except my computer will no longer see my ipod! Why is this happening? The ipod is working fine on its own. I have reset still wont see it. Any suggestions?

    Model No. MB029LL is an iPod classic. It does not have the chips inside to work with FireWire. It came with a USB docking cable. This is the symbol for FireWire
    and this is the symbol for USB
    The symbol should be at the computer end of the docking cable.
    If it did really work with FireWire, I have no explanation for how you managed to do it. All I know is that FireWire is not supported with the recent iPods. Therefore, you should get a USB docking cable, if you somehow do not have the one that came with that model iPod, and connect using USB. Hopefully, your PowerBook G4 is recent enough to have USB 2.0 ports.

  • Itunes wont update ipod! please help!

    For some reason when i plug my ipod into my computer it won't update my ipod! It recognises the ipod and says "do not disconnect" but it wont add any new songs at all. I'm going away tomorrow and i really want all of my newest music to take with me. Its an old but fully working 40gb touchbar. Please help! xx

    Maybe you have the iPod set to manual transfer, in which case you need to drag and drop music from iTunes into the iPod.
    Check in iPod preferences.

  • ITunes wont see my iPhoto library!  Unknown Error -50

    Ive recently replaced my external hard drive.
    When I try and sync any ipod I get the error 'Unkown Error -50'.
    This stops happening if I untick the photos syncing from iPhoto option.
    Why is my Itunes not seeing my iphoto folder?

    I have the same problem. If I recall correctly, the usual "solution" is to trash your iPhoto prefs and cache and rebuild the library (a simple "rebuild the library" from within iPhoto doesn't seem to work).
    I guess I keep hoping a more elegant, less time-intensive solution comes along, but it's my guess Apple has no idea (or care) that this problem persists.

  • Itunes not seeing Ipod and songs not playing Ipod

    I have a couple of issues just wanted to know if anyone has run into. I have a couple of computer one running Vista, the other XP, neither see the ipod in itunes, both see it in Windows. That is the first problem. I have also tried all of the suggestions in the troubleshooting section of this support website, except re-installing the operating system. The other issue is that the ipod does not play the music that is currently stored on it, it acts like it is going to and then stops the screen turns black and the apple logo appears, any ideas?

    Hello betel23,
    Have you tried resetting the nano yet? To do this, toggle the hold switch on and off, then press and hold the Select (Center) and Menu buttons together until the Apple logo appears. I would try these more than once just in case.
    Otherwise, try forcing the iPod into *Disk Mode* using the instructions in this Apple support document. It may help your iPod mount as an external drive on your system as well as get it to appear in iTunes.

  • Tried to update, now comp/itunes wont see phone which only has cable and itunes showing

    Hi,  I tried to update iphone to new update,  I updated itunes first but when I tried to update the phone I got unknown error (code was 1604 i think)  first had phone in dock so tried again and the third time I went to try with the original cable but Itunes/my computer wont see it.  the screen has a picture of the usb cable with arrow pointing to Itunes logo.   I have tried the Apple help which included reset (both buttons 10 seconds)  using different usb port and others from general help.
    Can anyone help get the basic operating system back onto the phone please.

  • Computer wont see ipod

    i have had my ipod touch for 3 days now, it worked like a dream until last night, i tried to plug i back in to my computer because i just put some more CD's on here, and my computer isnt seeing the ipod. its not showing up in itunes, or "mycomputer". i have not plugged into any other computer. although i did plug into an ipod wall charger, which shouldnt have done anything. also, i bought stuff from itunes on the ipods wifi internet, so there are things i bought that arent on my computer. is it expecting me to only use that wifi itunes now? please help!

    Its a shame that you are experiencing this within 3 days of your purchase of the iPod Touch. Before you do anything that I am about to recommend, Please ensure that you the latest version of iTunes on your Windows PC. The current version is 9.1.1.
    Please refer to [*_This Article_*|] by Apple to troubleshoot your listed issue.
    The items that you bought on your iPod Touch through WiFi are still on your iPod and they need to be transferred to your iTunes via using the "Transfer Purchased items" option but only when iPod Touch is connected and recognized by iTunes.
    If nothing works then take it back to Apple while it is under warranty and under 7 days to get it excanged.

  • ITune not seeing iPod in another USDB port

    Hi there
    I have a 20Gb iPod, and my wife has a nano. She has a nano dock in one port on the PC, and she has her own library in her own profile on the PC. When I used to connect my iPod to the PC, I just pulled the plug out of the back of the Dock, and plugged in my iPod - iTunes recognised it without a hitch.
    Now I've got a dock as well, plugged into another free USB port on the PC, but when I put my iPod in, iTunes won't recognise it.
    iTunes still recognises it if I plug it in the way I used to, however.
    I have tested the USB port with other peripherals, and it is fine. I have tested the dock by 'bypassing' the actual dock and plugging the iPod directly onto the cable. Still nothing. But this dock and cable work fine when plugged in to my stereo, so I really don't think the fault lies there.
    Has iTunes 'registered' my iPod on a certain USB port, and not recognise it in another? Do I have to reset it via my iPod updater?

    Is the USB port your have your dock plugged into or your cable plugged into a USB 2.0???
    Is it one of those "handy in front or on the front of your pc tower casing"??
    If your answer to the first question is yes, then I have no clue how to help.
    If your answer to the second question is yes, then the problem is with the actual USB port, you see the computer manufactures put those handy USB 2.0 ports on the front but the problem lies in the wires that connect it to the mother board. The wires can't handle the 2.0 communications and this confuses the computer, and consequently the computer and iTunes will disable that port and not recognize it.
    Post back your response, I am curious.

  • Itunes wont reckonize ipod touch

    trying to restore and itunes wont reconize it

    What is status of the iPod?
    If it recognized the iPod before try:
    - iOS: Not responding or does not turn on
    - Also try DFU mode after try recovery mode
    How to put iPod touch / iPhone into DFU mode « Karthik's scribblings
    - If not successful and you can't fully turn the iOS device fully off, let the battery fully drain. After charging for an least an hour try the above again.
    - Try on another computer
    - If still not successful that usually indicates a hardware problem and an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store is in order.

  • ITunes cannot see iPod

    OK, so iTunes somehow was able to hook up with the shuffle and pulled all my purchased songs off it. I am now on a different computer. I canot access the iPod itself though to place new songs on it. iTunes cannot see it. I am worried that the USB port sees it as a memory storage device instead of iPod. Any thoughts?
