Itunes wont see the music on ipod classic

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.

  • ITunes wont see I have an ipod

    I had to uninstall all of my ipod software to install iTunes and now I installed everything the ipod software and musicmatch (eww) and now I don't want music match but if I uninstall musicmatch my ipod wont tell iTunes it's their. Any idea? I got Ipod First Generation.

    FOR WINDOWS:
    Connect ipod if tunes opens close it LEAVE IPOD HOOKED UP ! control alt delete in processes RIGHT CLICK AND END ipodservice.exe,then open start and click run and put this in "c:\PROGRAM FILES\iPOD\BIN\iPODSERVICE.EXE" /service
    Leaving the ipod HOOKED UP NOW REBOOT LEAVE IPOD HOOKED UP may take a few minuets be patient...when rebooting is done itunes should open and recognize your ipod ...This worked for my new 80gig ipod just purchased 2 days ago and pluged in ipod it formatted to windows ok but itunes would not update or recognize ...This info is from Jeremy in ohio tech support for apple he is good (seems to know what he is talking about ), first 2 tech's i talked to were useless . Now ipod is auto updated very happy auto dnloaded music to new ipod (6,787) songs and all is ok ...This is not a fix for scratchy audio this is making ipod able to read your ipod by shutting off ipod service then rebulding it (restarting ) and worked fine for me ...If not sure go ahead and call tech support on this fix for updating ....Thanks all Good luck..

  • Transferred all files to new computer. My iTunes does not find my music.  The "scan for media" button doesn't work and I cannot get the iTunes to see the music that is clearly on my new computer.

    I am stumpted.  I transferred and have all my music in my iTunes folder on my new computer and I also have it on an external hard drive.  I've added the new computer to the list of authorized computers and followed the "advanced" preferences options to select my iTunes folder and still nothing happens. No music, no playlists, NOTHING. The I am completely shocked that none, NONE of the apple support pages can help me.  I have Windows 8.1.  Please can someone help me.  I cannot believe how hard this is.

  • Itunes not "seeing" the music...

    I'm using itunes on a PC with Vista Home Premium 32 (no jokes please!) I've got my music on a Seagate Freeagent Go external hard drive. I'll start itunes (yes, I've got the drive connected), I'll go to play a song/album/whatever, and nothing happens. The album artwork will appear in the now playing window, the song name is at the top of the screen but there's no sound and the track time isn't advancing. Is there anybody out there who can tell me what's going on here? Sometimes I'll have to re-start itunes 3 or 4 times before it'll work properly. Please help!

    It might be worth trying a dxdiag to see if that finds anything amiss, michael.
    Go Start > Run. In your Run, type dxdiag and hit enter.
    Work through the troubleshooting tabs. Does dxdiag report any problems?

  • HT1351 when my iphone 5 is connected, i can't see the content in itunes library.  when i have an older ipod plugged in, there is a button to view what's on the ipod but not iphone.  how do i see the music stored on iphone 5 in itunes??

    When i connect my iphone 5 to cpu, i cant figure out how to see the music held on phone.  When I click the "iphone" icon, it pulls up the options (summary, info, music, apps, etc) but when i click music, it just gives sync options.  When i plug in an older ipod, there's an option to see what's on the ipod but not with my iphone 5.  how do i see the music stored on my iphone in itunes?

    There is a OneClickdigital ereader available in the App Store. Download that to your iPod to read pdfs and books from the library. And you might need to download the OneClickdigital eaudio player to listen to audiobooks from the library. Once both are downloaded sync you iPod again to transfer them.

  • HT1351 I have just purchased an ipod classic 160GB and decided to sync my itunes music and videos that I purchased via itunes.  All the music sunk but it didnt sync my videos.  It said that they were in the wrong format.  What to do??

    I have just purchased an ipod classic 160GB and decided to sync my itunes music and videos that I purchased via itunes.  All the music sunk but it didnt sync my videos.  It said that they were in the wrong format.  What to do??   I would have thought if I bought the films from itunes it would be compatible with an ipod classic??  How do you change the video format?

    My mistake, it was nothing to do with format.  It woldn't sync because my movies were HD.  HD movies won't sync to an iopd classic 160 GB but when you purchase a HD movie, itunes gives you a SD vervsion of the movie which is compatible with the ipod.  Just needed to go to store, click movies, click purchased and untick the HD box and there you have the SD versions.  Download the SD versions and then sync your ipod and bobs you uncle, movies are on the ipod

  • Just downgraded back to iTunes 10.7 and copied music from ipod classic to itunes using houdini, but how do i copy the playlists from the ipod when itunes says that my ipod has been synced to another itunes library?

    Thank you again for all of your help!! I really appreciate it!
    I think I am following -- I was able to upload to my iPhoto and all photos and videos are there that is a plus! I tried to create an Event in my iPhoto and put all of my photos in that event but for some reason, now my iTunes it not recognizing that Event in my iPhoto. It is not allowing me to import just that event at the moment but I may be doing something wrong. At least all of my pics and vids are in iPhoto so that is a plus and I know they are at least saved somewhere. Just for some reason, my iTunes it not locating the event that I created with only those photos.
    Thank you for letting me know about my contacts! How do I know if I have the contacts app?
    Also, I had no clue that my iCloud could be backed up via cellular data! However, is this a new feature with the most updated iOS?? Unforutnatly I am like 2 iOS updates behind because I don't have enough storage on my phone. I still get the notification that my phone needs to be plugged in and connected to wifi in order to back up to the cloud :-(
    How can I sync using USB? Right now when i click on the info tab for my iPhone in my iTunes this is the answer that I get -- I am a little unclear as to what it means.
    Sync Contacts:
    Your contacts are being synced with you iPhone over the air from iCloud. Over-the-air sync settings can be changed on you iPhone

    Place the iOS device in Recovery Mode and then connect to your computer and restore via iTunes. The iPod will be erased.

    If recovery mode does not work try DFU mode.                        
    How to put iPod touch / iPhone into DFU mode « Karthik's scribblings        
    For how to restore:
    iTunes: Restoring iOS software
    To restore from backup see:
    iOS: Back up and restore your iOS device with iCloud or iTunes       
    If you restore from iCloud backup the apps will be automatically downloaded. If you restore from iTunes backup the apps and music have to be in the iTunes library since synced media like apps and music are not included in the backup of the iOS device that iTunes makes.
    You can redownload most iTunes purchases by:
    Downloading past purchases from the App Store, iBookstore, and iTunes Store        
    If problem what happens or does not happen and when in the instructions? When you successfully get the iPod in recovery mode and connect to computer iTunes should say it found an iPod in recovery mode.

  • My Itunes locks when I connect my Ipod classic. I have the latest version of Itunes as of 10/31/11.  Any fixes???

    My Itunes locks when I connect my Ipod classic.  I have the latest version of Itunes as of 10/31/11.  Anyone have any fixes?

    Close your iTunes,
    Go to command Prompt -
    (Win 7/Vista) - START/ALL PROGRAMS/ACCESSORIES, right mouse click "Command Prompt", choose "Run as Administrator".
    (Win XP SP2 n above) - START/ALL PROGRAMS/ACCESSORIES/Command Prompt
    In the "Command Prompt" screen, type in
    netsh winsock reset
    Hit "ENTER" key
    Restart your computer.
    If you do get a prompt after restart windows to remap LSP, just click NO.
    Now launch your iTunes and see if it is working now.
    If you are still having these type of problems after trying the winsock reset, refer to this article to identify which software in your system is inserting LSP:

    The music app on my Iphone 5 is acting up, it keeps skipping  songs and wont allow the to play. You can see the music icon the on notification bar play and pause. When i go back to the app is states the url is not responding. I have restored it from the backed up cloud save. It is the music app, I played music on pandora and it worked fine. I think it must be the app or the ios.

    restore with itunes not from an itunes backup or cloud save they do absolutely nothing only a clean restore will solve your problem

  • Import music from iPod Classic into iTunes

    I have an iPod Classic 120 GB that is still in perfect condition. I got it 5 years ago. I had imported several CD's into iTunes on my family computer and then imported them on to my iPod. I also had purchased some music from the iTunes store, but I had a lot more music that I had imported from CD's. An incident happened where a lot of my music got deleted from my iTunes account. I had over 5000 songs on my iPod from all the CD's, audio books, and purchased music I had imported into iTunes and then on to my iPod. When I plugged my iPod into my computer, iTunes recognized that there was music on my iPod that wasn't in my iTunes library. It asked if I would like to import the music that was on my iPod into my iTunes library. I said yes. Of the 5000+ songs on my iPod, only about 300 were imported back into iTunes, and then my iPod was synced. I lost the rest of my music. After this incident, I took several hours to re-import the CD's back into my iTunes library. Not too long after this, my computer crashed. Everything was wiped from my computer. We started by re-installing the drivers, Google Chrome, and I just re-downloaded iTunes. All the music that was in my iCloud has been backed up and added to my new library. This is only about 31 songs. I'm afraid to plug in my iPod again because it still has all the music on it that took so long to re-import. But now I can't add another CD on to my iPod without the fear of losing everything again. Does anyone know how I can make sure that ALL the music will be re-imported into my iTunes library again when I plug in my iPod? I don't want to go through this ordeal again if I don't have to.

  • HT4527 I tried home sharing between my desk top and my lap top. My desk top is the original computer with my iTunes library. On my lap top I can only see the music I have bought from iTunes. Is this all I should see? Not my entire library?

    I have tried to install home sharing between my desk top and lap top. I can only see the music I have bought from iTunes on my lap top. Is this normal? I thought I would be able to see my entire library.

    Yes I tried that. I finally turned off all home sharing settings, shut down my desktop and found them in my account settings in the store on the cloud. So at that point I just had it download everything. But I suspect that with the ipad somehow being on, the store was saying I had already received them? Regardless, my trip today whilst running errands, I was rocking out to vintage Police music! Thank you so much for responding.

  • I just got the new itunes and I can open itunes and see my music but whenI try and go to the itunes store it just loads to a white page. I try and refresh and go to the home page and nothing happens. I can sign into my account and the tabs for the itunes

    I just got the new itunes and I can open itunes and see my music but whenI try and go to the itunes store it just loads to a white page. I try and refresh and go to the home page and nothing happens. I can sign into my account and the tabs for the itunes store pop up like they normally would when browsing the itunes store but when I click on one of them, it is a blank page. Is there a setting I need to change? Does it just take an extremely long time to load? Please help!!

    Bucktr09:
    I'm having the exact same problem.  I upgraded to the newest version of iTunes on my iMac and ever since I did the store is a blank white screen.  I can get my library content but the store is a no go.  Is there any one out there with a solution?
