LOL Cam. I kept seeing all these posts showing up and wondering why something so old was still generating so much interest. Almost makes me glad I have a 3G Ipod.


Ok So i got an 20gb iPod for my birthday and i load all the song to my ipod in the wav encoder. I read the little booklet that came with it and it didn't help much. i have 507 songs on my ipod and it says i have 17.26GB used and 1.30GB available... Im supposed to be able to have like 5,000 songs right. how to i make the music files smaller? Do i have to reimport everything? or is there a way to covert the music files into smaller formats?


i have a 20gb ipod and i have lost my library in itunes..is there a way to transfer my 2700 songs from my ipod to my library without losing everything.....help

I have a mini Ipod,I have not used in a couple months. So today I go to use it and all of my albums are gone. Can you tell if and how I can retrive them?


HELP!! My 40GB ipod is less than a year old. I have over 1600 songs in the library; unfortunately the ipod will remember less than 1300. HOw do I get the rest of the songs onto the ipod? Also, it freezes up I undo all the stuff the book says than put it all back on, sometime I end up with 0 songs or under 1300 songs;but NEVER all of the songs.
Please,PLease, PLEASE help me


Hi, I have a 20gb ipod...the one with the back shuffle, menu, play/pause and forward shuffle buttons over the top of the wheel with the select button in the middle. The window display shows an icon showing a file with an exclamation mark over it. Ive tried the few things apple advise on the web page already. When the ipod is plugged into the computer, I can only see the ipod in my computer - itunes does not automatically open up anymore (it used to)Can you suggest anything to help please?

I bought my daughter a 5th generation ipod off of apple.com, she had it a week and the screen on the inside is cracked. I sent it to apple they they cant fix it under my warranty but they can if i want to pay 300.00. Is there anyone that i can send it to, to fix it without having to pay an arm and leg for it...

Thanks Alisha


My son's 20G IPod will start, the menu will flash, and then the screen will go blank. It does this about 3 to four times and then the battery sign shows up. Any suggestions?


does anyone have any idea whats wrong?
I have a 20gb iPod click wheel. When i push the button to turn it on the apple logo turns on and then a battery with an exclamation point comes on. None of my computers recognise the ipod and there is nothing wrong with my cables or anything. I HATE APPLE lol




Need help I have a 5th generation apple ipod i have music video on my hard drive but.......i cannot get it onto my I pod. i tried converting the files which worked but there was no volume after transfer.

When I try to update my 1Gig iPod shuffle I keep getting a message that says "attempting to copy to the disk failed. The disk could not be read from or written to"
Do you know what the hell this means and what I need to do? The people at Apple did a pretty lousy job at explaining the whole thing to me.

Excuse me sir,
I lost my ipod password and sinnce it is locked i cannot do anything with it i have searched all the sites possible on the internet so i thought you could help me please,
thank you if my email dosen't work could you post it on your site and i will see it.


I have a message on my 60g ipod..."DISK DRIVE...Ok to disconect". It's locked up on that message. Any ideas?



Every time I try and sync my iPod with iTunes (PC-Laptop), iTunes takes about four minutes to recognize that there is an iPod connected. It then forces me through the set up process every time... It never recognizes the iPod when I sync it for the second time. I've gone repaired iTunes, uninstalled and reinstalled it, threw it on the ground, everything... Any suggestions?


I have a 20gb click wheel and it freezes up and a tech support icon displays in the window. It seems that the battery is not charging and I have rebooted the program once. What must I do now that when i plug up the ipod and my computer doesnt even recognize it. Help Please.


I must have in appapropriately disconnected my ipod. Now ipod doesn't register in itunes and I get the message "iTunes cannot read the contents of iPod. Use the iPod updater to restore" I can't use the iPod updater to restore because iTunes doesn't register the iPod and therefore the update iPod option under file isn't available to me.

Any suggestions?


I have the exact same problem, but worse because before itunes did that to me, it (or my ipod, don't know which) deleted all my songs. (that i did not have backed up.) Please let me know if you figure out how to fix this, because I'm totally dying over here. Not to mention that I sent my ipod to apple last week, and I checked the repair status-it says that there's "no trouble found" and that the ipod is being sent back to me. I kind of want to kick some apple ass. I've only had it for less than 4 months.

i have an ipod photo 4th generation 40 gb. and the problem is when i turn it on.it gives me the sad ipod..then i force it into the disk mode it successfully
goes in the disk mode saying disk mode ok to disconnect (when no keys are working).then i plug it into the computer
now the computer and ipod both detect each other (in ipod it says do not disconnect and the battery starts chargin as appears) and in the computer it detects
it as a USB device.....BUT after like 5-7 seconds the ipod restarts to the same sad face automatically..and the computer disconnects the connection as well.
THEN when i restart the ipod (WHILE CONNECTED TO THE COMPUTERS USB) IT SHOWS me the bad battery icon
can anyone please tell me if i m missing any step or what could be wrong with the ipod.
